Rio

Sadly I haven’t been on a lovely hot exotic holiday. I have, however seen the children’s film entitled Rio with the voices of Leslie Mann, Jesse Eisenberg, Wanda Sykes, Jane Lynch , Jamie Fox and Will i Am.

This was an enjoyable, fun, lighthearted children’s film that kids will love. That’s as far as my compliments go I’m afraid. It was completely predictable and cliche and done before – apart from the fact that it’s with birds. It had nice moments and lovely moments and the occasional funny moment, but it didn’t have enough to keep me, as an adult entertained. After watching Tangled, any kids’ cartoon or animated film has an awful lot to live up to.

By all means, buy the  Rio dvd for the children, but I wouldn’t waste my money on going to see it as a family at the cinema.

Entertainment, Films,

(Hashtag blogger problems.) I am so short-sighted, I cannot see a thing without them, and I hate that feeling so much. So finally, even though there was nothing particularly wrong with my glasses, I decided to splash out and buy a new pair with anti-reflective coating….
Victor Frankenstein starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe

This review is coming from the point of view of someone who has never read Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein or seen any other film about it, and first thing I can say is that I don’t think that mattered at all, and may have even been better that way. I mean, Mary Shelley wrote the book in 1818 where-as the film was set roughly 1870s I would say, judging from my recent in-depth research into the late Victorian period. I couldn’t find any definitive information on this online either, so perhaps the film-makers deliberately kept the date ambiguous. It peaked my interest though; particularly as the beginning is set at a circus…
