The Boat That Rocked [Dec. 1st, 2009|10:11 pm]
Just got back from The Boat That Rocked.

Okay, it's the U.S. Release, so I guess I actually saw Pirate Radio, because somebody thinks Murrican audiences require thuddingly literal movie titles. /eyeroll

I enjoyed it. It's a very anecdotal movie, by which I mean that it didn't really have as much of a story arc as I expected. It was like, here's a situation, and some characters, and then some stuff happens. Also somewhat more of an ensemble piece than I expected, which is good.

Bill Nighy is a very funny man. And Kenneth Branagh does smug evil really, really well.

The gal at the ticket counter told me it's leaving the theater Thursday, so I'm glad I went tonight.

Did you know the movie was cut because there were complaints from critics that the original length of the movie slow the film down or was too long. So the American studio cut some scenes so they won't lose the attention of the American audience.
Sigh. I hope the American DVD version will have a director cut or the original British theatrical release.
