Trainwreck

I have just seen a picture of Tilda Swinton in this that utterly blows me away. I would not have recognized her at all! Look at this: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/artic ... ricks.html

Saw the film a few weeks back and loved it. Hysterical and surprisingly emotional at times, it was the first in 2 times a Bill Hader film made me cry (Inside Out as well) and when the credits came up and Tilda Swinton's role was revealed I just... Not an ounce of the character is like anything she's ever done in front of a camera before. Insane.

That image of Tilda Swinton is incredible, can't believe the transformation. Really looking forward to seeing this film, looks very amazing!

I'm afraid I really didn't like this. It felt like it was three hours long. I believe I laughed once. Briefly. Like a "Ha" only. Something to do with a vomit I believe. Others were laughing, mostly females I think, but it really didn't provoke much in me.
Some bizarre cameos though. I almost didn't spot Ferris Bueller. I certainly never spotted Matilda Swinton (even though I'd seen articles about her. I'd forgotten all about her.) Still unsure who she was. Sister?
I did like Amy though. She looks delicious and I think she must be a funny comedian. Simply put though the script here was bland and dull.
Didn't Aaron remind you of Mickey Dolenz from The Monkees?

Could have and should have been much better.

4/10

Edit: on second thoughts she must have been Dianne.

My mother in law said it was dull, not entertaining and had too much swearing. She said it improved drastically in the last 10 minutes which was apparently like another film?! I guess I will find out tomorrow...

Well I liked it even though it was a bit long. As for the last 10 minutes, I was expecting something standard and was pleasantly surprised by something original.

Preference of cinemas:- 1. Glasgow Renfield Street Cineworld, 2. Glasgow Showcase, 3. Braehead Odeon, 4. Vue Fort, 5 Glasgow Springfield Quay, 5. any other cinema in Glasgow area including Hamilton
Also Falkirk, Dunfermline and Stirling but these are rarely used for free previews.

I thought it was ok, but not great. Best big was probably the older couple having a row! She left not long in and must gave gone into the shops in the centre but came back at 8 when they shut and clearly wanted him to leave but he was having none if it. We were several rows back from them and in the other side if the aisle but heard every word. She left, he stayed!
Back to the film, yeah not memorable, a bit bland and boring really. 5.5/10
