As hard as Hotel Transylvania 3 tries to justify this wholly unnecessary new instalment of the franchise, the truth is that there is very little driving this forward. The film even takes place in a cruise ship as opposed to the titular hotel. The characters may have individual charms but I could not help but find Adam Sandlers Dracula overly cheesy and unlikeable. The story is pretty predictable but there are some nice visuals and a adequate soundtrack as well as a satisfying ending. None of the qualities mentioned however redeems the film enough to be recommended for children let alone adults as the humour is so base that it is almost an insult to childrens intelligence. Ultimately Hotel Transylvania 3 feels half baked and will leave some kids feeling just as bored as the adults.
Whilst DH Lawrence may not have realised he had written a classic, Ken Russell most certainly recognised Lawrences brilliance when he adapted Women In Love onto film in 1969. There is an array of emotionally charged performances on display and Ken Russell illuminates the sexual tension between its characters fully to his audience. Women In Love is about love, death, passion and rage; and the struggle between these mental states. The audience is challenged to look deeper into our psyche and find what it is that we desire.
A fierce film from Tony Richardson which will make todays audiences gasp at how handsome Albert Finney was in his youth. Tom Jones is an imperfect film about an imperfect character whose story is so outrageous, one cant help but laugh. The lightheartedness of Richardsons piece will certainly attract audiences who have an open mind about these sorts of films but may switch off those who seek something with a little extra clarity.
For first timers, try the Directors Cut, its shorter..
Simply magical. We already knew Lady Gaga could sing but in A Star is Born, it's like discovering Lady Gaga all over again. Bradley Coopers singing chops are just as good as his directing skills and served as a mighty match to Gaga. The film should put doubters of this remake to rest and just shows how timeless the story is. A real love story with pain and heartache and roaring music. I can't recommend it enough.
