Some Like It Hot!

    Some Like It Hot

This an old black and white film, I usually hate black and white films because i usually get bored really quickly but for some reason I loved this film. It has the one and only Marilyn Monroe who plays a stereo typical dumb blonde , but she is not the only star. The film starts of with two men musicians, who witness a mafia killing. Soon realising that they must run away before the mafia kill them they plan to join an all woman band, tis is when Marilyn comes in, she plays the main singer named Sugar Kane who performs in the band the two men manage to to join the band who are planning to go to Miami to perform in a hotel.

 One of the men, Joe, falls in love Sugar and tries his hardest to live his life as a 'woman' and 'a rich millionaire' at the same time! In the meantime the other man (Jerry), as a woman, gets persuaded to go out to dance with a millionaire named Osgood. They dance the tango all through the night and Jerry came back to his room telling Joe some big news...

This film is funny and a bit like and 1950's version of a rom-com! It is one of me and my mum's favourite films, I think one of the main reasons I love this film so much was because it ahs Marilyn Monroe in it! Yay! 

I think it could have had a little bit more of a storyline but i guess that is the nature of films like that!

Rating: 8/10

Age: 9/10-adult

Recommendation: High!

Son of Rambow

Son Of Rambow

Son of Rambow is about two boys with completely different backgrounds working together to create a home made film.  It is set in a long summer holiday in the early 80's. We see the story through one of the boys eyes, Will.

 Will is the eldest son of a fatherless Plymouth Brethren family who believe they are 'god's chosen one's' and there strict moral code means that Will is not aloud to watch the television, listen to music and mix with 'the bad group'. Well that was until he was caught in the complicated life of Lee Carter. Lee Carter is the school bully, and maker of bizarre films.

 Carter exposes Will to a pirate copy of Rambo: First Blood and from that moment Will's mind is blown wide open and he's easily convinced to be the stuntman in Lee Carters' diabolical home movie. Will's imaginative little brain is not only given chance to flourish in the world of film making, but is also very handy when it comes to dreaming up elaborate schemes to keep his partnership with Lee Carter a secret from the Brethren community. 

 They start to make a name for themselves at school as movie makers but when popularity descends on them in the form of the  French exchange student, Didier Revol, their unique friendship and their precious film are pushed, quite literally, to breaking point. 

This is another great family film as it is not a chick-flick or a action packed film! It is really funny but also exiting and shows the hardship of growing up.

My favourite character is Didier, the french exchange student when he was in England he was really popular but when he was in france is thought of really strange and very unpopular.

The two boy in the film are really good as it was there first time. If I could change one thing about it I would change nothing i don't think it needed changing!

Score: 9/10

Age Rating: It is a PG but I think people aged from 10-adult.

Recomendation: YOU MUST SEE THIS!

Here is it's trailer:

Hope you enjoyed it!

Miss Congeniality

Miss Congeniality 

Gracie Hart is a F.B.I. agent who shows no sign of femininity in her appearance or personality. But when a serial killer indicates that his next target is the Miss United States beauty pageant, the F.B.I. decides that they must get an undercover agent as a participant in the contest. A search uncovers no suitable candidate other than Agent Gracie Hart. Reluctantly, her captain agrees to let her join the team working the case. 

She enters as Miss New Jersey, replacing a contestant who was discovered unacceptable to enter the pageant . The managers of the pageant are immediately horrified about the agent appearing in the show, but arrange a top handler to come and give her a quick makeover, with the expected outstanding results.

 When the killer is suddenly caught, everything seems to be over, except the Gracie tries to convince her boss that something is still not right. She has discovered that the pageant managers are being sacked after 21 years for younger people, and one of the manager's character may not be as honest as she seems on the surface.

The reason I love this film is that it is crosses different genres. It has loads of funny moments but is thrilling but some romance is squeezed in! This film is great for people aged from 11- adult, I watched this with my mum, dad and brother and we all loved it!

All of the actors are great especially Sandra Bullock who is my favourite actress! She fits in this film really well and could change her personality to fit as this tomboy agent!

If there was one thing I would change about this film is that it can be a little bit predictable at times but otherwise it is excellent!

Here is it's trailer:
