Sunshine On Leith (2013) – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Well that was  a surprise… a musical based on the works of The Proclaimers (whose music I detest as a general rule) not only managed to be charming and funny but also made me actually want to buy their music.  More over Sunshine On Leith, full of great choreography, charing performances and a heart missing from modern day filming,  ended up as probably one of the top ten films of 2013.  Who saw that coming?  Highly recommended.

Best Bit: 500 Miles.

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Blues Brothers is the definition of a cult classic.  A failure on it’s release, the film lived on thanks to the birth of video.  But it’s initial failure was unfounded – this is a brilliant film. Insane, funny, surreal and stupid whilst always being charming, The Blues Brothers walks a fine line.  But those wining turns by Belushi & Aykroyd, combined with an infinitely replayable soundtrack and a whose who of cameos (Franklin, Charles, Fisher) makes for some of the most fun and irreverent movies you will ever see.

Best Bit: The brothers take to the stage
