Krampus

Krampus

Not bad a movie. You will most certainly be entertained with Conchata Farrell’s comic action like one line was fantastic. “I haven’t been this hungover since the Pope died”,. We all got a great laugh from this. She bring’s her Two and A Half Men character onto the big screen. The genre of the movie is Horror/Comedy. The visual effects wowwww, but more importantly, the plot was quite simple to follow.

The plot being as I said above, was that a young boy wishes the OPPOSITE of wishes. In that mayhem ensues when Max’s family tree comes, ie the Aunts, Uncles, Cousins etc., So in a fit, he rips up Santa’s letter and throws into the sky, hence where Krampus comes and causes mayhem. IN the end, it is found that Max receives a Bauble with Krampus on it. We all thought it was a dream, however when its realised that it wasn’t, who knew. Something tells me a SEQUEL might be on the cards.

 

 

Victor Frankenstein

I travelled along tot eh film with a friend of mine. His synopsis of the film: “Interesting”, which no doubt so true. The Visual Effects, class. Oh and the baby, mmmm MUSIC. It was fantastic. BUT not what I had quiet expected. Like Frankenstein being the MONSTER turned out to be the story of its CREATOR aka Victor Frankenstein(McEvoy). As I said and I’ll say it again, I don’t care for body parts being tested or even being shown on TV, as I said to my mate, thank god I had finished my nachos.

We meet Igor(Radcliffe) and his new boss Victor Frankenstein. Victor found Igor in a circus. They together try to create a monster ie LIFE from a dead body. Something to that effect.

 

The Good Dinosaur

Well the film in particular was Good, its all I could say, when asked how was the film. It was good, but NOT bad. ie Just Right. That said the plot was quite simple, music thou was outstanding. I totally enjoyed it. There was a bit of sadness and emotion as shown by audience memebers. I totally enjoeyd the wonderful quotes when Arlo has “fears” when Poppa states “You have to get through your fear to see the beauty on the other side.” Then Butch 

The plot as I said was quite simple. It tells teh story of if teh asteroid had NOT extincted the Dinsaurs 65million`years. Mama and Papa are doing farming by means of their back etc., and of course the tails. It tells teh remamrekable story of how an APastorairus meets the human “scritter” Spot. So Arlo is part of a family of Momma(McDormand), Poppa(WRight), Children include: Arlo(Ochoa), BUck(Scrbiner) and LIbby, Arlo goes throguh lifes ups and downs. ARlo being the odd ball int eh family.

 

Brooklyn

Wow, Just wow. What a film. I was most impressed by the performances by all involved especially Saoirse Ronan’s who played Eilis. She has been tipped for Oscar 2016. Such powerful performances. Great well done. My number one pet peeve other than Music, which am delighted was wonderful and fantastic, BUT the plot, which I will outline in a mo. I was most impressed with the way they portrayed the 1950s. Highly recommended. When in particular the way they used to use the Boat from Cobh, Co. Cork. The film is set in Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford. So Eilis prob got the train over to Cobh or something. But the number one thing that got to me was the emotions. She showed true character as per Colm Tobin’s novel.

THe plot as I said above was most appreciative very simple. Eilis is currently living with her Mother and Rose(Glascott). She gets a hankering to move to Brooklyn, New York City whom she was helped by Fr. Flood(Broadbent) in terms of a Visa AND a Job. She got a job as a sales person in Balloci a jewellery or something. Says I to meself, my god you could just literally sale into a job, but these days, totally different. So she meets a sexy young Italian buck Tony(Cohen). It is with great sadness, of which I won’t bother getting into it, forces Eilis to return back to Ireland. So while back, her friend or neighbor Nancy(O’ Higgins) sets her up with a guy, with a very cute mmmmm guy Jim Farrell(Gleeson). Before Eilish returns to IReland, TOny marries Eilis so that EIlis “promises” to return back to him. Whilst in Ireland, she gets feelings for Ireland again AND my precious Jim. So M Kelly(Brennan) being the villain I take it, makes up her mind for EVERYTHING by revealing “how small this world is”, when she reveals that a “young girl from Enniscorthy”, married TOny an “Italian”. So on that note, I will leave you all to guess the rest. ahahah.
