Léirmheas Everything Everything

Tá Maddie Whittier mar gach uile deagóir ar domhain ach tá rud amháin difriúil fúithi.. ní raibh sí taobh amuigh riamh. Tá fadhb sláinte aici darb ainm easpa imdhíonachta a chiallíonn nach féidir léi a bheith i dteagmhail le baictéír nóbeidh sí fíor-tinn. Níl saol úafásach aici; cónaíonn sí i dteach atá sainoiriúnaithe, is maith léi a bheith ag scríobh léirmheasanna ar scannáin agus tá an-suim aici sa léthoireacht. Is é a mórmhian atá aici ná a bheith ina ailtire.

Is léír go bhfuil Maddie tinn tuirseach leis an saol laethúil agus ag iarradh fiondar. Is é Olly an fiondar sin a bhí in easnamh ina saol. Is é Olly a comhairsean nua, buachaill óg, dáthúíl agus is é an chéad duine i shaol Maddie seachas a máthair agus banaltra a thugann aird di. Tosaíonn an bheirt acu caidhreamh rúnda ar líne. Tá a máthair buartha go bhfuil sí chun gach rud a chur i mbaol dó.

Déanann Maddie cinneadh deacair chun gach rud a chur ar an líne agus don chéad uair riamh an fharraige a fheiceáil; aisling a bhí aici ó a raibh sí an-óg. Imíonn sí ar eachtra do Haváí anseo thagann sí ar rún creathach a chasann a domhan bun os coinn.

Ni raibh aon tuairim agam faoin scannán seo sula bhfhaca mé é. Chuaigh mé le mo dheirfúir atá dhá bhliain dhéag d’aois; an aois ghrúpa atá an scannán dírthe air. Níor thaitin an scannán mórán linn. Bhí an scéalaíocht aisteach agus déacair a leanúint. D’éirigh an scannán níos fearr leath bhealach tríd mar gheall ar an ionadh sa pholta.

Ceann de na buanna den scannán ná an analach; rinne Maddie comparáid idir í féin agus spásaire. Mar tá an bheirt acu cuibhrithe agus foighneach. Cheap mé go raibh seo cliste agus suimúil, chabhraigh sé leis an lucht feachanna tuiscint níos mó a fhail ar an gcineál saol atá aici.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Leirmheas

 

Cheapfá nach mbeafaí in ann scannán eile a chruthú as an scéal céanna ach geallaim duit cuirtear casadh úr agus spleodrach ar Spider-Man. Tá an scannán suite i suíomh ardscoil Meiriceánach tipiciúil. Is léir nach bhfuil an-ghean air Peter Parker (Tom Holland) ar scoil. Is iarmharán é agus is ball den chlub deacatlan é.

Tosaíonn Homecoming i ndiaidh an ionradh ar Nua-Eabhrac a bhí ar siúl i rith The Avengers, freagraíonn sé ceist an lucht féachana; cad a tharla den chathair tar éis an cogadh cathrach?

Tá go leor téamaí uilíocha tríd mar shampla, cairdeas faighimid léargas iontach den chairdeas idir Peter agus Ned. Is carachtar greannmhar, geanúil agus saoithín é Ned. Le linn an scannáin athraíonn a ról go dtí cúntóir nó mar a glaonn Spidey air “An fear sa chathair”. Tugann an scannán léargas úr ar fíor chairdeas.

Téama eile ná ógántacht. Ceapainn Peter go bhfuil sé réidh a bheith mar bhall den fhoireann mhór “The Avengers” ach tá Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) ag déanamh meantóireacht air agus níl sé róchinnte. Tá an caidreamh idir athair/mac míchompordach  agus greannmhar fad is a fhorbraíonn sé.

Níl sé cáilithe mar laoch go fóill, agus caitheann sé cuid mhaith den scannáin ag dhéanamh cad a dhéanann déagóirí an lae inniu; ag déanamh botúin ollmhóra agus damáiste do gach rud ina dtreo.

Tá gnéithe den bhun-plota fite fuaite tríd go cliste agus go slítheánta, leis an ngnáthphlota agus cúpla casadh curtha leis. Tá an-tóir ar an scannán seo do pháistí, déagóirí, daoine fásta, fanaiceach Marvel nó duine nach bhfuil mórán suime acu i sárlaochra. Is léir go bhfuil rud éigean go gach duine sa scannán seo a ghluaiseann go tapaidh agus atá lán de bomaite grinn.

Cloisim daoine á rá gurbh é Tom Holland an “Spider-Man is fearr” agus caithfidh mé a rá go bhfuil mé i gcomhaontú leo. Tá Marvel tar éis cinntú go bhfuil Spider-Man slán sábháilte ina lámha.

Rings Review

Directed by F. Javier Gutiérrez and written by David Loucka Rings is the third instalment from the American franchise originally taken from the Japanese 1998 psychological horror movie Ringu. The first American remake was back in 2002 and certainly was one of the big horror movies of that year with people even refusing to have a TV in the bedroom after watching. Unfortunately the concept now seems a little dated at this stage and probably won’t have the same audience fear factor as before.  It definitely wouldn’t be a Rings movie without some classic VHS tapes and you won’t be disappointed as they do make a brief appearance before moving over to computer video files in an attempt to update the Rings franchise to the digital age.

This movie again follows the same concept as before except this time there is a Video within the video that nobody has noticed before. After a very disappointing open scene the plot opens up with the introduction of Holt and Julia, a college couple who are separated due to college commitments. They keep in contact via skype while apart until one day Holt just disappears without a trace. When Julia goes to her boyfriend’s college to try to find her him she meets up with his college science teacher Gabriel, played by Johnny Galecki who is of course Leonard Hofstadter in The Big Bang Theory. Gabriel had seen the famous video that causes the watcher to dies exactly 7 days after watching it.  After he started a club for people who had also seen it called “The Ring Experiment” they soon discover the video within the video that holds the key to stopping the 7 day curse.

Rings is not a hard movie to follow but definitely you need to pay attention to the plot or you might find yourself losing interest. There is a nice twist at the end which makes things interesting. Overall it’s not a bad movie.

Jackie Review

Jackie Review

Most people young and old will understand the significant of the date November 22, 1963 in US history. It is of course the day that one of the most popular American Presidents of all time was assassinated in Dallas Texas. Directed by Pablo Larraín and written by Noah Oppenheim, Jackie recalls the events on that faithful day and the aftermath that followed, seen through the eyes of the iconic first lady Jacqueline Kennedy.

The lead role in this movie is played by Natalie Portman who seems right at home in this part. Her portrayal of Jackie is flawless and much deserving of the many positive reviews and of course her best actress Oscar nomination which she is being hotly tipped as one of the front runners for the award. Also starring in Jackie was John Hurt in his last movie release before his passing in late January 2017.

The movie follows the life of the first lady at first in the White house leading up to the assignation of her husband. After her whole world is turned upside down Jackie quickly learns that her every move and decision is been scrutinized by everyone from the Public to journalists and even politicians. Jackie knows all her moves and actions in the immediate weeks following the assignation are most important. As she struggles to deal with her faith, children and the grief of such a tragic loss she also must consider the legacy of her husband which is very important to her.

The movie focuses on Theodore H. White’s Life magazine interview with the widow at Hyannis Port, Massachusetts in 1963 approximately one week after the assignation. The interview reveals a lot of graphic details about the events of that day which are shown in the movies courtesy of flash backs

Jackie is a fascinating watch with a lot of credit going to Portman for a very strong and convincing performance in what must have been a very difficult part to play due to a public obsession with both the woman herself and of course the truth of what really happened that day.

Léirmheas Ballerina

Scéal suimiúil saor ó na clichés, beochan inchreidte go leor agus carachtair gleoite atá pearsantacht chasta, daonna acu. S’éard atá i gceist leis an scannán Ballerina, atá cóiréagrafaíocht ag réaltaí an Opéra National de Paris ann.

Baineann plota an scannáin le scéal Felicie – cailín Briotánach a bhí i gcónaí ag aislingeacht le bheith ina bailéiríne go dtí go bhfuair sí seans amháin lena haislingí a fhíorú i dturas rúnda go Páras. Ní “laoch tipiciúil” í ar an scéal toisc go mbíonn sí dána anois is arís ar nós fíor-pháiste. Níos tábhachtaí fiú, cé gur scéal na n-óg é an scannán so, ní finscéal atá ann, agus dá bharr taispeántar air gur do-dhéanta an rud é teacht ar dhuine atá go hiomlán maith nó go hiomlán olc. Go deimhin, ní bhfuair sí deis freastal ar an scoil bailé i bPáras go dleathach – do ghoid sí aitheantas chailín eile, agus fuair sí pionós cuí dá bharr. Ní hea nár éirigh léi a sprioc a bhaint amach ar deireadh, ach bhí uirthi cloí leis an dlí agus rialacha áitiúla gan tuilleadh caimiléireacht. Is tábhachtach teachtaireacht mar sin a chur trasna chuig páistí: taispeánann sé dhóibh nach ann don “sióg máithriúil” agus caifear obair a chur isteach ar do chuid aislingí… Ach san am céanna, má bhíonn tú dána, gheobhaidh tú pionós.

Ballerina

Tá namhaid spéisiúil ag Felicie chomh maith. Níl Camille bheag go hiomlán olc, ach tarlaíonn sé go bhfuil an-chuid brú uirthi ag teacht óna máthair féin chun an sprioc céanna a bhaint amach. Múintear ceacht eile do na lucht féachanna óga le scéal Camille: níor rugadh éinne “olc”. Foghlaimítear droch-nósanna i rith an tsaoil. D’aineoinn sin, is féidir le haon namhaid maitheas a dhéanamh ar deireadh má thugtar cairdeas fírinneach di.

Ballerina

Is thar bharr an rince a bhfeictear sa scáthlán ó tús go deireadh an sárshaothair so. D’éirigh leis an bhfoireann beochana íomhá a chruthú atá tarraingtheach agus inchreidte san am céanna. Níl sé deacair duine a shamhlú ag tabhairt fé na céimeanna céanna sa bhfíor-shaol. Is mór is fiú féachaint ar an scannán so, is cuma más páiste nó duine fásta thú!
