September 17th, 2013.
I'm not the hugest fan of Woody Allen movies. Indeed, here's a list of quotes I've used to describe the last three I've watched:
Vicky Cristina Barcelona : "All the characters in this film (including beautiful 25 year old women) talk as if they were 70 year old Male Jewish New York Pseudointellectuals, and that's bad screenwriting. Even with George Lucas you can tell the difference between a teenage queen, an elderly Jedi Knight and a Filippino-accented transvesite frog"
Annie Hall : "Casting the wrestler Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in the lead was a stroke of genius. Oh wait. They didn’t? That’s a real pity"
Celebrity : "At £2.95, across the five minutes Charlize Theron is in it, it would be like paying £85 to watch The Avengers. And at that price, much as I love Charlize Theron, I think I'd prefer to watch The Avengers. Again."
But if you think my disdain for the man's films would make me reluctant to go to a premiere of one of his films? You don't know me very well
Plus I've never photographed Cate Blanchett.
So... no Woody Allen, but that's not the huge-est loss in the world - there is no plausible way I can consider myself even a passing fan of his work. Annie Hall had some merit. Some. Plus I actually photographed him once at a New York Nets game
And that's another one for the "Archive of Movie Premieres" and one more of the cast of The Lord Of The Rings I've now photographed. (If I can just grab Hugo Weaving and a couple of the minor hobbits I'll be doing a whole lot better)
It's going to be a bit quieter from now until London Film Festival in October, sadly.
Until Next time!
