After a lovely day out at my Nain’s we spent Valentine’s evening with these lovely stuff! However I fell asleep before the film finished which wasn’t good!
So to make it up to the hubby I have booked last Tuesday off and booked us in to see 3 films at our local Cineworld!
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
First up was Star Wars. We had been to see it before and I wasn’t fussed but hubby wanted to see it again. I didn’t mind – it’s not a bad film I just not a huge fan of the franchise! Although I will admit I do like Rey and Finn… which are the main characters so enjoyable enough.
After that it was around 2.15pm when we came out so we headed to Pizza Hut to catch the buffet. Never been to the buffet because I’m always at work. It was nice!
Next film was Dad’s Army. If you’ve never seen/heard of Dad’s Army then it was a British sitcom in the 1970s about the Home Guard during the war. The film was an adaptation of the British sitcom and so we had new actors portraying classic characters. They had a difficult job I must admit because no-one can ever beat the originals. Toby Jones as Mainwaring was great but Michael Gambon as Godfrey was spot on. I wasn’t watching Michael Gambon as Godfrey I was watching Godfrey! Like I say, spot on!
(Something I’ve found out since is that the original Godfrey (Arnold Ridley) was Daisy Ridley’s great-uncle! What a coincidence!)
This was the main event! Everyone who had seen it had told me it was fantastic and well worth seeing… and I’m not going to argue with them! It is one of the best films I’ve seen in a long time… best one since Guardians of the Galaxy perhaps.
Ryan Reynolds reprises his role as Wade Wilson/Deadpool but thankfully not the same one as in X Men Origins: Wolverine where he had his mouth shown shut. And honestly if his mouth had been sown shut then this film wouldn’t have been half as entertaining!
I knew this film was going to be violent after reading about someone who wanted to take their kids to see it but complained about the violence…. erm yeah it is most definitely not a kids film! There is definitely adult themes going on in this film.
I’m not going to do a synopsis or anything because I don’t want to give out any spoilers but all I’ll say is… go see it! If you’re not convinced then honestly, just go see it for Ryan Reynolds’ humour (and buff body – never noticed it before but mm yes!).
Have you seen these films? Do they appeal to you? What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
