Just when we thought there's no good movies to watch, a couple of us trooped down to GV and watched Woody Allen's Scoop … I'm please to announce it was fun fun fun. *clap clap*
The film defined by GV as an arthouse film and made us pay S$10 on a Monday evening for it. How? Why? What? When? I don't know. We were even more confuse after the movie when we checked out Little Miss Sunshine and that's not considered an arthouse film … so who's classifying these movies at GV? I want that job 🙂
Anyway, back to Scoop, perfect example on how a simple script and a couple of well timed actors are all you need for a good film.
A simple whodunnit that was funny too. Hugh was yummy beyond words and Scarlett was sweet, something different from her usual and lacked a sense of confidence but I guess, that's part of the character too. I prefer her sensuous and pondering. Woody was Woody.
Soo Wei asked if it was better than Matchpoint? No, not at all … Matchpoint wins hands down because it was so damn clever and made you look at those bags for tennis rackets a little differently. Yes, I'm talking to you Jules, you have to go watch it 🙂
