Wednesday 7th Sept.
Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter
This is a musical (!) based on the story of Sweeney Todd, who, as a sideline to his hairdressing business, slaughtered his clients and used their bodies to make meat pies which were then sold in the shop beneath his salon. Nice!
Wednesday 14th Sept.
Led Zeppelin - The Song Remains the Same
Classic footage of this iconic rock band's tour of the USA in 1974, when the guys were at the peak of their career. Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham at their very best, including interviews and backstage footage. If you are a fan, this is a must-see!
Wednesday 21st Sept.
Starring Robin Williams, Bob Hoskins and Dustin Hoffman
Written as a sequel to Peter Pan's original adventures, focusing on a grown-up Peter who has forgotten his childhood. Now known as "Peter Banning", he is a successful corporate lawyer with a wife and two children. His old enemy Captain Hook, getting bored with no-one to fight, kidnaps his two children to lure him back, and he must return to Neverneverland and reclaim his youthful spirit as Peter Pan in order to challenge his old enemy. Typical Steven Spielberg fare, full of action and emotion and with many comedic moments. A really fun film for old and young alike, which got 5 Oscar nominations.
Wednesday 28th Sept.
Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore
Sam Wheat (Patrick Swayze), a banker, and Molly Jensen (Demi Moore), a talented potter, are a loving couple who move into a New York City apartment. At work, Sam discovers discrepancies in some bank accounts and confides in his colleague, Carl Bruner (Tony Goldwyn). Carl offers to investigate, but Sam decides to look into it, himself. Sam and Molly are later attacked in the street by an armed thug, Sam's wallet is stolen and he is killed in the ensuing fight. Sam's ghost arises from his body and gradually realizes what has happened and that he cannot be seen or heard. In this new-found state, he discovers that the discrepancies and the robbery are connected and that Molly is in danger. He sets out to try and warn her but, of course, she can't see or hear him, so he enlists the help of a fake medium (Whoopi Goldberg).
Pathos and highly emotional moments sit surprisingly comfortably alongside Goldbergs highly comedic performance as the fake medium. One of my favourites!
