23 June 2017Film of Choice at The Plaza Dorchester Tonight – Hampstead. Why do people find it so hard to reconcile themselves to the fact that it’s ok to be different. This story takes us on a journey of burgeoning love between a widowed American and a man who deliberately chose to remove himself from society. Putting nothing into society, yet taking nothing out, he is persecuted for his lifestyle and when he is being threatened with eviction he finds support from an unexpected source….namely Emily, played the the wonderful Diane Keaton, who brings her flighty style to this put upon, widowed character. Almost forced into rebelling by Fiona, her busy body head of the tenants association neighbour, Emily discovers Donald Horner, a man who has been practising his lifestyle for 17 years, yet is facing eviction by the developers who want to utilise his plot of land. Based on a true story this film shows the unpleasant side of some people’s characters and the nicer side of those who are drawn out from their shells. A feel good film which only had one uneasy moment for me, that was when Emily seemed to change her personality momentarily leading me to wonder where things were going. A good rainy Sunday afternoon film.
18 May 2017 Film of Choice at The Plaza Dorchester Tonight – Guardiansof the Galaxy Vol.2 – I finally got myself to The Plaza to catch this
next instalment of the great Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy. We rejoin
our heroes as they are defending a bunch of batteries for the The
Sovereigns……enter the cutest dancing twig of all time. I AM
GROOT!!!!! This film throws us right back in the mix of the weirdest
‘family’ group on the screen today, yet amidst all their bickering,
their fierce loyalty to each other enable them once again to save the
Galaxy and in the process discover more about themselves. Sisters, one
blue and one green, a scraggy pint sized raccoon with a big gun and a
big attitude, a blue man with a strange arrow controlled by an
attachment on his head…….need I go on, they are characters we all
know and love. This sequel is solid follow on film with a plot far
removed from the first, filled with action, adventure and a fair few
giggles along the way. An excellent film, watch it again and again.
Remember cinema going peoples, this is a Marvel Film…….stay to the
