i found it very gripping. it was 90w i found it very gripping. it was gory in parts. it has a thriller rather than a horror film. gory in parts. it has a thriller rather than a horrorfilm. for me it was all about the past. to be honest, i would watch any of those reactors in anything anyway. three of my favourite actors. olivia cook is good as is douglas booth. what is going on in this film is an undercurrent to the murder story, that thriller. really it is a film about performance. it is about how performance was so about performance. it is about how performance was so important at this time in the musicals but alsojust people in their everyday lives. there are people in this movie you are putting on a mask every day and playing roles. then there is the golem himself, the serial killer the warped performer who wants recognition. when you have that undercurrent running through the movie, it gives the cast something veryjuicy to sink their teeth into. it isa
5:50 pm
veryjuicy to sink their teeth into. it is a very seductive world. very rich, very seductive. that is a great thing to watch at the movies as well. jane goldman adapted the book originally. she has done a very good job. there is a lot of plot going on in there. she has done a greatjob of going on in there. she has done a great job of streamlining going on in there. she has done a greatjob of streamlining it, drip feeding information. the penny dropped just the right moment. i was big fan. patti cakes, didn't it have a lot of praise at sundance? sometimes you get films which cross over. fox would love this to be a big crossover. it is about a girl from newjersey who leads a very downbeat life. dreams of making it big in the rap world, in hip—hop. danielle macdonald, an australian actress actually. it is very funny
5:51 pm
and charming but it does not quite know what it wants to be. sometimes it is very kitsch and camp. reminded mea it is very kitsch and camp. reminded me a bit of hairspray. that is a great film, great fun. sometimes this film then gets serious and wa nts to this film then gets serious and wants to make a ul and social points and goes eight miles and eminem, the opposite route. the problem is it is six of one and half a dozen of the other. the music is great. i like that it other. the music is great. i like thatitis other. the music is great. i like that it is quite subversive, but in this overweight white girl in the world of hip—hop. shaking things up quite a lot. i'm not sure whether it quite a lot. i'm not sure whether it quite knows whether it is long, deep oi’ quite knows whether it is long, deep or serious. it is an unsettled mix of the two. it does not quite know what it wants to be that she is one
5:52 pm
to watch? very charismatic. look out for her. i said we were to save the best till last. terminator 2, so good they have brought it back decades later. 26 years later, in sd. someone would say schwarzenegger's acting was barely into dealer to learn sd. james cameron, the director who had success cameron, the director who had success with titanic has the same tea m success with titanic has the same team to do the same thing with terminator 2. let's have look at a classic scene. keep it under 65. we don't want to be pulled over. affirmative. no, no. you've got to listen to the way people talk. you don't say affirmative. or something like that. you say, no problemo. if someone comes up to you with an attitude, you say eat me. and if you want to shine them on, it's hasta la vista, baby. hasta la vista, baby.
5:53 pm
or if someone gets upset, you say chill out. or you could do combinations. chill out. i had almost forgotten that phrase but now it is back to haunt us all. is there a point to this question he has reworked it for the bid is all in sd. do we need to see it? has reworked it for the bid is all in 3d. do we need to see it?|j has reworked it for the bid is all in sd. do we need to see it? i saw in 3d. do we need to see it? i saw it when it came out on the big screen. i waited a long time that just seeing it on the big screen, forget that the reedy element. it is amazing. it is this movie of awesome sentences. —— the sd element. it is great to see one of the great action

heroes of all time on the screen. maybe you have never seen it on the big screen for that this is why it isa big screen for that this is why it is a great opportunity to catch up with terminator 2. some of the special effects do look a little bit creepy now. james cameron has admitted that. the movie has such power, it is so gutsy, so full of bravado that it does still pack a punch. he may be very young and not even born when it was first released. maybe there is a whole new audience for that. will they look and think it is all dated will stop in 1991 this was the most expensive film of all time for the even know it is old now it still holds up because they put so much into it when it first came out. worth having a look at if you have never seen it before. you forget how expensive it was. best out? detroit. a tough movie to watch. based on true events in detroit 50 years ago actually.
