Best, ItGirlX

Watched THE WOMAN IN BLACK**** last week. Best horror flick I've seen in months. Creepy old mansion with a few good spooks actually gave me the heebie jeebies which I haven't had in years.

 

Good stuff **** of 5 stars

 

I do horror movie leagues on yahoo fantasy if anybody wants to share movie reviews on the grid iron.

 

Cheers to fears

I have noticed that you have been MIA with regards to Netflix movie reviews. Are you a self-appointed film critic. I know you love talking in the annoying 3rd person mode. Is that because you want to portray yourself as someone actually important? I do understand that being a lesbian certainly has it various acquired complexes, including a need to enhance ones ego. Just who are your so-called legion of fans? Knowing your age group would be interesting, but I think I have figured that out already.

Film Grrrl's Review --

Luscious atmosphere, characters with depth, scintillating love scenes and a wonderful ensemble cast make this a true hit in the lesbian cinema. The struggles our heroine faces are real ones -- real for all people, and not just lesbians. This film speaks to the human condition and to the family, money and amorous struggles we face. Film Grrrl wishes it had gone on longer. Sequel, please!

John's review:

There are those rare occasions, when, after watching a movie, I am completely spellbound, and feel compelled to watch it a second time. This was the case with Tipping the Velvet. I cannot compare it to any movie I have ever seen. Set in Victorian England during the 1890s, Rachael Stirling stars as Nan Nancy, a sheltered, 18-year-old girl living with her working-class family, helping out in her families oyster restaurant. Nan attends a local theatre and sees Kitty (Keeley Hawes), a male impersonator, and becomes totally enamoured by everything she is about. Given the puritanical times, Nan has a gradual transformation as she grows from a smitten observer, to someone who takes joy in blending in with the entire trans-gender roll and all that it is about. Nan, also the narrator, adds a special dimension as we experience her child-like candor, the brunt of her bruises, as well as her search for love. Well-crafted, the movie was a BBC television drama, and is made into a three-part series. Written like a Charles Dickens story, it captures old London and the people of that period The characters, costumes, and acting are brilliant and believable, and moves at a brisk pace. Parenthetically, I have always believed that Ingrid Bergman has the most beautiful and sensuous mouth in cinema. But, after seeing Rachael Stirling with her Gorgeous-Good-Looks, has made me sear her into my thoughts.

Pre-supposing, another's favourite, with a pinch of conviction, is like observing the glint of a guillotine! It will fun to put our reviews into juxtaposition. I am new to writing reviews for NF, but have been writing my entire life. I get a big-time-buzz from posting these reviews! I must say that I was totally enamoured By Nan, so I checked out "Nan's" real life, and learned that she loves horseback riding. I was just short of procuring a horse to make a quick dash to London. Even when she was battered and bruised, she still had the most sensuous mouth in cinema! Unconsummated crushes are always the most enduring.

As I have been observing your tastes and preferences, I wondered if you have seen "Tipping the Velvet?" I did a review on it about 3 weeks ago. There is a small possibility that you missed what could be one of your all-time favorites. Gee, that's putting a lot on the line, but I will stand by it. Again, thank your for the incredible amount of time and work that you put into your reviews and ratings!

Film Grrrl,

Just a brief note to say that I both follow and love your reviews! Your "observational" wit and subtle humour often makes my day. In brief, of all the people who post reviews at Netflix, you are have become the most creditable source. So, thank you!
