Flim Weakly Review- Atonement


Jean Luc Godard once said “Film is truth, 24 frames per second.” Now, I don’t know what that means, but I do know it’s wrong. Atonement cannot be truth, because it’s made of film, and truth is made of emotions or something. I also don’t know who Jean Luc Godard is, or what 24 frames have to do with it, as frames are usually found in Asda, for pictures and photos to sit in.

Although, actually, films are made of pictures, aren’t they? So maybe that’s what he meant, in which case, he’s very clever, even if he’s from somewhere that isn’t where I’m from.

So, what, in fact, is a film?

Well, it’s a thing you go to see when it’s too early to see it on tv. It even comes out before the dvd. And it costs three times as much as watching it for free, which is really stupid. Unless it has nudity in it.

But not every film does.

“Bambi” didn’t.

Neither did “Spaceballs” and that has ‘balls’ in the title.

Welcome to FLIM WEAKLY.

This week, I couldn’t get out to see Downton Abbey, but a mate told me this was pretty much exactly the same movie.


A very old lady tells a long and involving story that didn’t happen because she wasn’t there.

James MacAvoy is accused of liking Keira Knightley and is thrown in rich people jail which means he has to go and be in a war. Once in the war he walks about a bit with some other war people, before going to some sort of funfair at the beach.

Meanwhile Keira talks posh and smokes, and her sister stares a lot. There’s a bit with Sherlock too, but you don’t know it’s Sherlock because he’s being a bit of a pervy twat, instead of a smart arsed, sexy twat.

The ending went all sad because things were wrong for people.

Marks out of 10….
