Well the girly goes to America just cos she wants a change of scenery, not the intent of the song.  Think
I think you can have a bit of reality in a "feel good" film. Lots of examples but "Billy Elliot" will do for one.


just see it as an interpretation of the song. leave all reality at home for this as I think was intended for this.

Just seen "Blue Jasmine." Strange  film but keeps your interest. However, many of Woody's films are melancholic but are tempered with wit and humour,  not this one- it's dark, just dark!
Also seen "Fifth Estate." Was absolutely riveted, thought it was terrific. Interesting critics have been a bit iffy, but not surprising Lessange is not keen...Wink Good to see that nice Matthew from "Downton" has got some work too.....Wink
OK no Andy so top Woody films anyone? Mine:
Purple Rose, Bullets Over Broadway, Sweet and  Lowdown, Radio Days, Manhattan.
And  are any other movie buffs up for their for 10 best films?

Jokes aside, 10000000x better than the first one.

Going to see The Hobbit in 3d HFR tomorrow evening so can't wait for that. Got the first one in 3D blu-ray so will probably watch tonight for a recap.

Tell us your views as although I loved the first Hobbit movie, I thought the 3d was very conservative for one that was shot natively. Am hearing very good things about Smaug, though!!!

One word. Wow.

Jackson has absolutely done it again. Absolutely amazing, even better than the first and there was a full round of applause in the cinema at the end. Smaug in particular was awesome.

So looking forward to seeing the movie, though I'm not into 3D versions.

Gravity - didn't enjoy it at all. Visuals were stimulating though.

As this appears to be the best movie of 2013, I know there is clearly something wrong with me for not liking it but oh well Smile

There were no good movies in 2013 only a few half decent ones (The Way Way Back probably the most decentish of what I have seen). I haven't watched all the movies I intend to watch yet though .. Gravity being one I have yet to see along with 'Standing Up', 'About Time', 'Prisoners', 'Short Term 12', 'The Spectacular Now' and 'All Is Lost' which I will give a spin when I get round to them. So maybe there might just be a good movie in that lot but I'm not sure about holding my breath.

Gravity was a little boring. Maybe I expected too much.


Okay, I admit it....I slept halfway through. Embarassed

I watched Jasmine Blue two days ago with a friend of mine and never felt a single second of boredom. The theme of social decline, of living a life built on lies affects a lot of people. And to follow Cate Blanchet on her way was fascinating.

Blue Jasmine appears to be a remake and up-to-date version of a Street Car Named Desire. Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There were many great acting abilities on show.

And BTW, I thought that there were several outstanding films during 2013. On the other hand, unfortunately, there was a lot of dross.
