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: The Boat That Rocked (retitled Pirate Radio in North America). Retitled means that the original title is the UK title. 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… ... (more)

“Even tough the film has his funny moments, I do not consider this film much of a comedy. Overall it does not try to make us laugh, but it tend to make us (well me) happy. Due to its documentary nature and the history involved, the story is very realistic and interesting. But the most important and attractive part is without a doubt the great music. I do own the soundtrack, and I love it. The music also accentuates the story. The right song at the right time can be so important, and they don't miss an note. For me the best part will always be when the cast is singing Elenore by The Turtles. I would recommend this film to everyone. Even if it is just of the musical history within.” read more

A good movie

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

"I just know some of you are rolling your eyes right now. I don't know how it was over in the UK, but for us here in the States, we were advertised that this is a movie about these rebellious guys who saved rock 'n roll. Aaaaaand we didn't quite get that. But after seeing it a couple times after, I feel like it was falsely advertised. I know I really bashed some movies that didn't have a cohesive story in my last list (they may have even lacked one altogether), but one thing that I like about"
