Get Him to the Greek
Did you like 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall'? If the answer is yes, then don’t bother reading anymore just go get your ticket…
My first worry when it was announced that there would be a film based on Aldous Snow, I just didnt think that Brand or Aldous could carry an entire film, I was wrong...
I think that in some ways this is funnier then Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Brand and Hill are obviously comedians, and brilliant at their jobs! The surprise is Diddy who is effing hilarious, I was worried about this casting choice, but he is comedy gold! The story only lulled briefly at one point for me, but I spent practically the whole film laughing so its definitely worth your cash time and effort to go and see it! However it seemed like the younger people in the audience missed a lot of the music/pop culture references and didnt seem to be laughing as much as the older people in the audience... Cant wait until it is on DVD!
Sex and the City 2
Okay, its really simple with this film… If you are a fan of the characters, you will love it, if you aren't, don’t bother… It revels in the glitz and glamour of the 4 main characters with the add ons of their own arcs… As a fan of the series and first film, it was wonderful to catch up with the girls, but it is long so cocktails at gold class were probably a mistake… The second time I saw it, I still enjoyed it but it was definitely a better experience in Gold Class….
Titanic The Artefact Exhibition
As you arrive you are given a boarding pass with info on your character, a real person that boarded the luxury liner, at the end you can find out whether you sank with the ship or lived… This is a nice touch… The first room is great but was quite busy when we went, like no one was prepared to move on… The layout is great, with some wonderful relics, and recreated areas from the ship… It was easy to maneuver, loads to read, look at and even touch (think iceberg!)… I don’t want to give too much away, except that you get free entry into the museum with your entry price so there is no reason not to go - and early so you can get the most out of your day there!
Russell Brand LIVE
Oh sweet Russell… I missed the last live show in Melbourne as I was due to have Marley, but this time we got ground floor seats at the show at Rod Laver Arena… He started with his spiel and then came down into the audience to see his fans, which was great as he walked right past my seat… and then stood about a metre away whilst doing his thing… Then back to the stage and a good mix of improv and scripted stuff from other shows/podcasts… Seriously funny though, I was really impressed… He has an amazing vibe, and is genuinely funny (not just to those who swoon at his swagger), if you ever get the chance to see him DO IT!!!
