Hello, it’s me again! I’ve not done a film review yet, however this one was something I went to see on it’s release date and one I wanted to write about. I had been waiting for this film to come out since I saw it was being made, and now I have the honour to tell you all about it, so don’t stop me now… Continue reading “Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)”
Right then. I’m on record as being one of the few people on this God-forsaken planet that doesn’t go hoop-la over the movie Home Alone (1990), and instead, takes issue with it. Here’s a number of reasons why.
Right, so we’ve had one good panto and one bad panto, where does Aladdin (2000) fit? Is it another Jack and the Beanstalk (1998), or will it crash and burn like Cinderella (2000)?
Okay, okay, I know what you’re thinking. Of course it is. Or isn’t. The fact that right now, we’re discussing this, not only here, but across the world, means that this is undoubtedly the most important question we need to deal with right now. So stop everything, give this a read, and use this to prove to people that your stance is correct.
So, here we are at ITV panto number two, Cinderella (2000). Is it as surprisingly decent as Jack and the Beanstalk (1999) or is it actually as naff as the most amateur of primary school productions?
Panto is weird, isn’t it? They’re simple, humorous plays that often deviate heavily from the original source material and are somehow quintessentially English and Christmassy. Despite the fact the majority of them are poorly put together with a limited budget and cast with average acting skills, I do admit a liking for them. By far, the most professional pantos I’ve ever come across are those produced by ITV from 1998 to 2002. There are four of them and for Christmas, I plan to review all of them and then rank them all in order of personal preference. Without further ado, lets begin with Jack and the Beanstalk (2003)
Good morning, good afternoon, good evening and good night! Well, not good night yet, because evidently, you’re not going to bed yet and I most certainly am not as it’s currently 10:38 AM on a Sunday and I’ve not long gotten out of bed. I’m lazy, but I ain’t that lazy.
