Little Miss Sunshine

Great Fun

(Edit) 02/04/2010

Marvellous. You cannot help but love this film with its disastrously quirky family and their van. From a frankly ludicrous premise it takes ever sillier turns, to the satisfyingly cringemaking finale. And if you see some of the plot twists coming over the horizon, it doesn't seem to matter. You just have longer to wonder if they're really going to pull it off. Making full use of a small budget, you can see they all had fun making this film. It's feelgood, it's loopy, it's the road movie to end the genre but it's highly recommended.

The Golden Compass

Joyless Adaptation

(Edit) 02/04/2010

You'd be much better off reading the books or seeing the stage play. No wonder they haven't got round to making the sequels yet. Blends all the originality into a big porridge of Hollywood-flavoured mush. Not even the stellar cast can save it.
