Kung Fu Panda

* * * Spoiler Alert! * * *

We managed to get to the cinema in time at 20:25, but the queues were long and we thought we would miss the beginning!

Luckily when we got the front of the queue the film hadn’t started, even though it was 20 minutes after the advertised start time!

Most of the people there was to see Mamma Mia, the previous viewing sold out, so some of them had come back. When we got to the front one of the staff came out and said that that viewing of Mamma Mia was now sold out!

Back to Kung Fu Panda…

You know those old Kung Fu films? With those seemingly impossible moves?
Yeah? Well this film has loads of them although animated though!

The story is about a lazy panda, named Po, that accidentally becomes the chosen “Dragon Warrior”. Despite having no real life experience of Kung Fu, Master Shifu must find a way to train Po and make him a Kung Fu Master

He must then fight Tai Lung, a snow leopard.

I’ve read reviews about Kung Fu Panda, saying that with the big names doing the voices in the film, we don’t get to see (hear?) them often. For example, Jackie Chan is the voice of Monkey, but I don’t remember ever hearing Monkey speak!

It’s a funny film, great for kids, but also for the adults.

Off to the Cinema

I’m going to the cinema tonight to watch Kung Fu Panda with my girlfriend

We’ll be using the free cinema tickets I got from eating a load of chocolates!

The only thing is, it’s only valid at Cineworld Cinemas
And the only one in Bristol is in Hengrove, the other side of the city!
Still, it should only take us about 20 minutes to get there.

If we don’t get lost!!!

Saw 4

You may remember last November I went to the cinema with a *special* friend from work to watch Saw 3, this year I went to the cinema to watch Saw 4 with my girlfriend!

Saw 4 starts off where Saw 3 finished, with Jigsaw being cut open in a pathologist lab. And a tape to the new game is found in his stomach.
But the end of Saw 4 finishes the same as the end of Saw 3!

At the start we see the body of one of the victims from the last film being discovered, the woman who had her chest ripped apart.
A new person is then part of the game, and goes around town saving people, and letting them save themselves.

Its all a very straight forward Saw movie.

But its the end, we see the end from the previous movie being shown again, that man finding his wife, the wife getting her head blown off, and Jigsaw and his accomplice dying.
Then one of the people from this films game, he must be the one that is going to carry on Jigsaws work, then shuts the man in the room.

Also in this film we get to see Jigsaw before he became Jigsaw, and how it all started!

This film is not as gory as the last film, but is a must see if you’ve watched the previous Saw films.

Thats it!
Happy Halloween

Saw 3

I went to the cinema on Monday to watch Saw III with a *special* friend from work.

I’m not very good at writing reviews, as I tend to just say “It was alright!”

What I will say about Saw 3, is that is was not as scary as I thought it would be. There are some gruesome moments, the one that particularly got me was where this man had all of his limbs twisted.

Overall, the plot wasn’t particularly confusing, there was a few flash back moments to scenes from the previous two movies. Even though this was the first Saw movie I have watched, I didn’t feel lost, like I had to have watched the first two, just to “get with it” and know what was happening.

Most of the loose ends are brought together quite neatly at the end, and questions like “Why were those people picked?” and “Who is playing the Game?” is answered at the end.
The only question left unanswered is “What about the daughter?”. There is a hint as to what has happened to her, but otherwise it is left up to the watcher to answer that one!

Who knows, maybe there might be a Saw 4 after all!

My verdict, if you are squeamish take a bucket and sit next to the exit, other than that its an interesting, but a gory and scary, film to watch!
