Expect something different, Nos. I reviewed that on the Labs and also really liked it. It's shot digitally not because it's cheap (it is) but because Rose wanted to try something different with the tech. Hope you like it.
Frankenstein is the only blind buy from the Music Magpie order (I haven't seen The New Kids either). I highly rate and enjoy watching Candyman, so I have fairly high hopes for Frankenstein.

Philomena is a very good film, one with an important story and wonderful performances from Steve Coogan and Judy Dench. I didn't think much of Man of Steel at the cinema, but I want to watch it again before re-watching Batman v Superman and Justice League.

Of the others, I think I saw Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom at the cinema and thought it was good, but not great, and a film watching for Idris Elba's brilliant portrayal of Nelson Mandela. I'm a big fan of Alexander Payne's films and The Descendants is the only one I don't have; it's a film I saw years ago and thoroughly enjoyed, so I don't know why it's taken me so long to buy a copy.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters was a film I thought was a lot of fun and one I and looking forward to watching again.

Both of the Studio Ghibli films are terrific and have been my wish list for a long time.

I started to watch that this evening and then realised it has French or Norwegian audio and only French subtitles, so it's practically useless. I looked at the original listing and realised I mistranslated the French as it states English subtitles listed on the sleeve aren't present on the disc. I should have paid a bit more attention before buying it!

You ain't the only one who has done that Nos, i have done it more times than i care to remember when buying film and not paying attention to the languages that are used.

In all fairness if something been put out to buy (irrelevant of format DVD blu ray etc ) you would think they all would have English subtitles as a option.

Haven't been on for a couple of days & having a bad time emotionally (my depression & anxiety are through the roof working & watching people be so irresponable), this post just made me smile!

Thank you!
