Recent film reviewed- Bridget Jones's Diary.
Bridget Jones's Diary
Starring: Renee Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth
This film is very different from the book it is based on, the bestselling novel by Helen Fielding. However even without these plot lines the film still carries the shine that the book had but with a film medium sparkle. The film is very humourous with Bridget's Large knickers, Daniel and Mark's fight among others. Hugh Grant as the horrible Daniel Cleaver is great anbd Colin Firth excels as Mark Darcy. The part of Mark Darcy being written for firth when Fielding watched the BBC adaptation of 'Pride and Prejudice' gives the film axtra humour. A great film in my eyes!
What Lies Beneath
Starring: Harrison Ford, Michelle Pfeiffer

Director: Robert Zemeckis
Whilst this is a great film, it has many flaws both in the continuity and as a Hitchcock fan i found myself almost scathing at the far too often Hitchcock references (substituting a bath for a shower). However this is a thriller, and quite scary at that. Ford and Pfeiffer are great in the roles of Norman (yet again) and Claire. The twist near then end i definately didn't see coming, however one of my friends said she thought somethign was wierd! Anyway i ain't gonna ruin it for you this is well worth the ticket price!
Road Trip
Starring:    Tom Green, Breckin Meyer, Amy Smart, Seann William Scott.

Director:      Todd Phillips
When i went to see this i was expecting another American Pie inspired teen flick, what i got however was soo much more. Fort one this is much funnier than American Pie, Tom Green is hilarious as the insane room mate with strange habits involving mice, and all the cast members play great parts. It is really funny! I'd recommend this to any American Pie fan who wants more!
Blair Witch 2 : Book Of Shadows
Director: Joe Berlinger
Don't turn up at the cinema to watch this film, if you want another dose of the Blair Witch Project, the shakey hand held cameras and the like. this is a big budget film, with a soundtrack, visual effects, times of cleverness and times of flaws like any other major motion picture these days. Whilst many film critics have smalled this film, whilst it didn't surpass the first in my mind, as a teenage movie goer i enjoyed this. It is definately aimed more at the teenage generation who have been brought up on scream and the I know what you did series! It is a film you have to judge for yourself, whilst there is great tension in some places, there are no real scary moment as tyou would expect in ur standard horror feature.
Scary Movie (2000)
Starring:               Anna Faris, Shannon Elizabeth, Carmen Electra, Dave Sheridan, Cheri Oteri, Regina Hall, Marlon Wayans          
Director:               Keenen Ivory Wayans
After all the teen slasher movie, we finally get a spoof of them all, the films we once watched with fear (kinda ;) ) we know watch with a giggle as this fantastic spoof keeps us rolling in the aisle's. The film manages to spoof in the time of 88 minutes, Scream, Scream 2, I Know What You Did Last Summer, The Blair Witch Project, The Matrix, The Sixth Sense and Dawsons Creek (!!). The different faces of the ghostface mask are hilarious, as well as the now infamous 'wassup!' scene (bud adverts?!). Whilst this film is not perfect, its a thoroughly enjoyable hour and a half.
