A good movie

Even though I always loved ‘Four Weddings and a funeral’, I’m not a huge fan of Richard Curtis’ work and, for example, I think that ‘Love Actually’ is actually rather overrated. On the other hand, his following directing effort sounded really fun and I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I thought it was pretty good and I really enjoyed it.

Näyttelijäkaarti loistava. Musiikki mahtavaa. Huumori suoraan sydämestä. Elokuva oli suorastaan valloittava. Tiesin odottaa kiinnostavia hetkiä näiden heppujen parissa, mutta odotukset ylittyivät täysin.

Omassa genressään aivan nappisuoritus!

Loosely based on the Radio Caroline story this is a fun and nostalgic voyage into the murky waters of pirate radio. I enjoyed it much more than I expected to, not being a big fan of Richard Curtis' films before. Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Rhys Ifans provided great comedic value. I'll definitely watch the boat rock again.

Description: In the late 1960s, American radio stations blasted rock and roll 24 hours a day. But in the home country of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, the only way 25 million people could hear their music was to tune in…to a boat. Celebrated filmmaker Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Bridget Jones’s Diary, Love ... (more)

"Katsottu: 2.7.2014 TV:stä (TV Viisi) 60-luvun Britanniassa radioasemat soittavat vain 45-minuuttia rokkia päivässä, mutta onneksi Pohjanmerellä toimii laiton radiokanava Radio Rock, joka soittaa rokkia koko päivän. Laivan miehistöön kuuluu mm. Philip Seymour Hoffman (Mission: Impossible III), Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill), Bill Nighy (Rakkautta vain) ja Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead). "

A good movie

“Even though I always loved ‘Four Weddings and a funeral’, I’m not a huge fan of Richard Curtis’ work and, for example, I think that ‘Love Actually’ is actually rather overrated. On the other hand, his following directing effort sounded really fun and I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I thought it was pretty good and I really enjoyed it. Somehow, it reminded me of ‘Pump up the volume’, a rather cheesy film I saw when I was a teenager, starring a young Christian Slater who was still one of the most prosmising young actors at the time. Well, here you have a British version of radio piracy, very loosely based on actual facts and the whole thing was seriously daft. Indeed, to start with, there was a really impressive cast (Philip Seymour Hoffman, Bill Nighy, Nick” read more

“Would people hate me if I said that I did not find this funny at least one bit, maybe it's either not my sort of comedy or it bored me to death but it had a talented cast and that's all I can say really, I won't watch it again for sure, nothing against it it just was not the sort of comedy I enjoy.” read more
