• The Personal History of David Copperfield

    DCInitially was not bothered about watching The Personal History of David Copperfield but after so many people saying how wonderful it was we decided to head over to Abbeygate cinema to see what all the fuss was about. Plenty of names in it and from a personal stand point remember it being filmed as several scenes were done here in Bury St Edmunds last year, so was good to go spotting places where it was filmed. the story was quite straight forward and it was ok but I didn’t come out thinking wow that was brilliant, it was just ok. Felt it was a bit too slapstick in places and found the most interesting part identifying Bury. They filmed around Angel Hill and in the theatre Royal and it looked great on film.

    Give this a 7/10. Watch it but when it comes out on TV.

  • Parasite

    parasiteInitially was not sure if I wanted to watch Parasite especially as it was not being shown at my favourite cinema Abbeygate. With it doing so well at the BAFTAs I thought I would head over to Cineworld and see what it was like with a last minute booking. Plenty written about the story but in essence it is about a poor family in Korea who come across an opportunity to infiltrate themselves into the lives of a wealthy family by working for them in different jobs while keeping their relationships hidden from the rich family. Even though it is a sub titled film it is very well done and quite easy to watch and very funny and entertaining. As the film progresses it starts to turn darker as the parasite comes into play. Can tell how good the film was as the 2 hours went by in a flash. No point going into the details of the ending as it was certainly not something I was expecting and was a surprise but good.

    Even the score on Rotten Tomatoes was incredibly high, 99% and 92%.

     

    Definitely worth watching and I would give this a 9/10 score.
