Sorry about the lack of cultural stuff going on in here....there's plenty happening in Manchester but can't afford that anymore. Shame.
However I did watch this DVD after rehearsal tonight, and yes I did enjoy Keanu but what a mess the film is - well not so much a mess as just extremely clumsy with great plot changing moments happening in seconds. That terrible scene on the bridge plotted to let the child suddenly appreciate Klatuu after all- now that was clumsy and i'm sure Keanu looked embarrassed. Too many separate threads in the film not really gelling, and I did think the effects were the weakest I have seen in a long time. The humans just did not look as if they were sharing the same space as the effects - always a problem. I tried to like this film, but it was rather inadequate I'm afraid.
