Movie reviews

Postby Lyria on Sat Apr 04, 2015 6:32 am

I thought maybe it would be a good idea to have a thread where we can recommend or warn others about how bad films/movies we've watched are. I mean you have do something on non race weekends, right? ;)

I recently watched 'Saving Mr Banks'. It's based on the true story of what happened when Walt Disney met and tried to persuade P L Travers to let him buy the rights to her books to make Mary Poppins. It stars Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks and I have to say I really enjoyed it. The story was good, well acted and both emotional as well as very funny in places. In my opinion it was a very good watch and yes, I would recommend it.

Do you consider it a chick-flick? :piparty:

Just saw "Woman in Gold." Decent film and you will actually learn a little history in the process. True story, worth seeing. Not depressing for a "holocaust" related movie. Sorry Mach, but little sex or violence. Did have some of Max Mosley's family friends in it (Nazis).

Nope, not a chick flick at all, just a good story. My mum isn't a film fan, she won't watch most of them but even she watched this one and enjoyed it. 8)

I heard. Can't be a bad movie, no matter what.

I won't tell you about the Alonso one dedicated to me then, of the many Villeneuve signed pictures I have, you're right, that would be bragging :reallyevil: :reallyevil:

I was in the Villeneuve fan club, that's how I got so many from him. Management here got me the Alonso one for helping them out at a difficult time, and the Vettel one I wrote to him and included an S.A.E., most drivers will respond if you do that ;)

I actually have a lot of F1 drivers in my collection of signed celebrity pictures that I collected over the years, last count it was at around 750 pictures in all.
