Goodfellas and Jaws

I had my new friend Karyn over to watch these two with me. We discussed them, exchanged funny comments and so on. Its nice watching movies with friends, I’ve really missed it! Anyways, I’m going to use Karyn as an excuse for my reviews being short and crap because she distracted me from my note-taking!!! Both films neither of us had seen before which was good.


All That Jazz

I didn’t really feel anything for this movie to be honest. I guess I have to really love musicals and want to be in them to like this movie. Like my mate Sarah, I think she’d like this. Only wrote a few notes; the music is good, I feel fat & unfit, the dancing is extraordinary, I hated hearing that comedian do the routine over and over again when it wasn’t funny the first time and the surgery is gross!!

I don’t know… it would be great for Broadway but doesn’t quite work on film for me.

The French Connection

I think the only reason I’m not going to say that this was really boring is because it reminded me so much of Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes. And I only wrote two notes which were ‘Life on Mars’ and ‘happier than Gene Hunt’. I know that The French Connection is probably one of the inspirations for Life on Mars but I saw that first so I link them. It is unfortunate, I guess, that I’m too young to know some connections from one movie to another or links in TV shows.

This is basically my review for this movie because I didn’t really right anything down for it. Its basically just a long TV crime show. And Gene Hackman was great, as he always is.
