Director: Jim Abrahams, David & Jerry Zucker

Plot: Elaine (Hagerty) is an air hostess who’s left her partner (Hayes) and he follows her onto the flight. Disaster strikes as half the plane is poisoned including all 3 pilots, leaving it to Elaine and the passengers to land the plane.
well this film is a disaster spoof movie which, if you have a sick sort of sense of humour, which i do, you will enjoys lots. The gags are hilarious and weird often with no context, adding to the hilarity, and how the cast kept such serious expressions i will never know. The filming is hilariously bad at points, but that adds to the humour and this is a film i will be quoting for a long long time…. ‘And leons getting LARGER’

Director : Jonathan Demme
Cast : Antony Hopkins, Jodie Foster
Plot : Clarice is a student at the FBI academy who is asked to go and interview Hannibal Lecter, a psychiatrist in prison for cannibalism and murder and what not, to try and get information on a killer who is killing young women and taking their skin. The film follows Clarice trying to catch this killer, without letting Lecter get into her head
Now needless to say this is a film i had very high expectations for, considering the hype around it even now, over 2 decades later, and i have to say it lived up to expectations. Antony Hopkins gives a chilling performance as Dr Lector and Jodie Foster is also wonderful. This film managed to always make you feel jumpy, without actually giving you anything to jump at. It was thrilling, clever and beautifully filmed, and the ending left me wanting so much more
"We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race and the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for."

The Angel’s Share review
Director: Ken Loach
Cast : Paul Brannigan, Siobhan Reilly, John Henshaw,
Summary : A young scottish man, Robbie, narrowly avoids a prison sentence, and as a new father, he wants to turn over a new leaf, and takes a interest in Whiskey.
Wow writing a summary for this film is extremely hard without giving anything away. This film was a mix of absolutely hilarious moments, and some really touching ones too. The humour was quite dry and bold, which is right down my alley and 500 miles was incuded which was obviously a brilliant decision. The opening scene was absolutely brilliant, introducing each character in a clear and hilarious way which fit right into the plot.
The acting from Brannigan was outstanding as his character has moments where he is very vunerable, and sometimes very scary, and Brannigan played both these aspects of Robbie very well. There were some minor characters who’s acting that i felt seemed very forced, but as none of them where in the film for more than 20 minutes, it didnt take away from it. Unfortunately i found i couldnt understand some of the dialogue due to the thick scottish accents of the cast, which did take away some of the enjoyment of the film for me
As for the directing, i enjoyed the tones and the scenery shown in the film, however there were some unnecessarily long shots and some down beat scenes which did not seem particularly important to the film, which i think slowed down the film a bit.
One of my favourite things in the film is the actual explanation of what ‘the angels share’ is, it being the proportion of whiskey in a barrel that just evaporates, and there was a very sweet moment at the end of the film, which made me smile and brought the film to a lovely end. Overall i enjoyed this film, i liked the premise and the characters, however i wasnt too keen on the direction.
