Film Reviews


Well after a rough day yesterday, I woke up this morning feeling like I’d turned the corner.
This cold is finally on it’s way out and I actually feel a little more human again!

So, I decided to make the most of the day and do absolutely nothing except put my feet up and watch films.
It’s seems to have worked so far and as my house is being taken over by Dharma and her friends from tomorrow lunchtime for Dharma’s birthday, I thought I had better make the most of having the living room to myself before being banished to the bedroom.

I’ve been in a bit of Zac Efron mood the last couple of days after catching Charlie St Cloud, so I decided to catch a couple of his other movies on Amazon Prime that I hadn’t seen before.
The first one was ‘That Awkward Moment’

Not the best film ever made but I must admit it had a scene that made me laugh like I haven’t laughed in a long time.
It involved viagra and the need to pee horizontally!!
Long story, you have to see it to appreciate it.
Needless to say if you Google ‘Zac Efron peeing horizontally’ you’ll get the idea!!
Posting the image here will just need too much explaining!!!

The second one was ‘The Lucky One’

This was a much better film.
Zac plays a marine who travels to Louisiana after serving three tours in Iraq to search for the unknown woman he believes was his good luck charm during the war.

Basically he finds a photo of her after a raid one morning and as he goes to pick it up a missile strikes where he had been sitting.
He tries to find the owner of the photo with no luck so he carries it and he continues to survive in situations he really shouldn’t.
He makes it his mission to find ‘his guardian angel’ when he gets home to thank her but ends up falling in love with her!!
There’s more to the story but that’s the gist of it.
It’s a lovely film and I think I will be adding it to my DVD collection ASAP.

Right, another movie before bed or do I take a look at the new Netflix exclusive Sense8 that was released today?
