I’m looking an honest opinion regarding the new Batman film. Surely there’s someone out there who didn’t like it.
Holler here because I’m not going to spend a good sum of money (Ushs 11,000 on a ticket, 5,000 on Cineplex ebigenderwako, 20,000 on fuel and 15,000 on a cheap bottle of wine to cure the certain headache I will get driving into town) without having a balanced review of the film. By the way, all the hoo-ha about it makes me think the film should have been called The Joker instead of Dark Something Or The Other With Batman and Michael Caine In It.
I finally found something that helps explain my feelings about the recent offerings at Cineplex Cinema in Kampala.
This cartoonist, Fighting Words (whose work I haven’t asked for permission to use but I am begging please, please, please don’t sue me) is part of a really cool group called Cartoonists with Attitude. I learned about them on this week’s BBC Radio 4 choice podcast, available for download here.
Does anyone know someone who knows someone who is of any influence at Cineplex?
Can someone tell whoever is reponsible that the cinemas smell of dead milk and mould?
Is anyone there aware that running a movie like Wanted for three week is an insult to anyone with a brain?
Could you pass on the word to the powers that (don’t) be that animated films are not ‘childish’ and should be shown after 4 pm.; that Eddie Murphy is creepy, that Jack Black is bleak; and that although post-colonial Uganda didn’t quite understand the meaning of the word ‘independence’, independent films are not a bad thing?
