How I Live Now Film

On the day I purchased the DVD Filth I also purchased the DVD How I Live Now. They also came out the on the same day in Cinemas in the UK and they came out on the same day on DVD release which I thought was pretty cool. Now I had wanted to see the film when it first came out in cinema but I never did for some reason. Now the reason why I wanted to see this film was because it was Saoirse Ronan's new film. 

Now I purchased the book before buying the film but I didn't want to read it because I didn't want to spoil the plot for myself. However after seeing the film I will read the book and I can't wait to. I did really want to read the book before seeing the film but I managed to resist and wait. 

The film which is based from the book is about an American girl who is sent to the English countryside to stay with relatives. She finds love and purpose while also fighting for her survival as world war three unfolds around her. It's also a love story about two people who are separated, a boy and girl and they try and find there way back to each other.  

Saoirse plays the American girl and her character is called Daisy. I really love her character's style of clothing in this film. She is just so cool and chic with her outfits in the film. I think Saoirse has developed her character very well in the film. I love how you can hear her thoughts at the beginning of the film and how she's not very likeable at the beginning but after everything that happens you can tell that her character has changed, because she has gone through so much and she doesn't use her willpower for stupid stuff any more. 




























The cinema photography in this film is just stunning, some of the scenes are so vibrant with the colours and it just fits in perfect with the film. I also think the soundtrack for this film is stunning four of my favourite songs are Lost Map / The Hawk by Jon Hopkins this is a beautiful instrumental piece, I love anything with a piano in. The next song is Home (Jon Hopkins Remix) by Daughter I absolutely love this song. The third one is Gardens Heart by Jon Hopkins and Natasha Khan this is an amazing song and Saoirse Ronan is in the music video for this song, she did the film first and then the music video. It's also a beautiful music video with some creative and interesting shots as well as being a beautiful song. The fourth song is Do It With a Rockstar by Amanda Palmer and The Grand Theft Orchestra this is such a cool song and fits in with the film really well. 

Overall I would recommend the film if you love love stories and drama. 

I would also love to try and find the merchandise pack which contains a branded note book, headphones and also sunglasses which are worn by Saoirse Ronan in the film.

Filth Film

When the film Filth came out on DVD I went out and bought it. I got it because I had wanted to see it when it first came out in the cinema, but I never did for some reason. Now the reason why I wanted to see this film was because it was James McAvoy's new film. 

Now I had read the book written by Irvine Welsh before seeing the film. The book is amazing and I would recommend it, I would happily read it again. So by reading the book beforehand I knew what was going to happen in the film if they stayed true to the book. Which I think they did and I was excited to see some of my favourite parts from the book in the film and how they would look in the film. 

From reading the book first it takes the reader on such an interesting journey with different emotions. It's funny, dramatic and an incredible book and even though the reader is meant to hate the character Bruce Robertson I ended up liking him because he is so insane. He is also messed up and it has a dramatic ending. I also felt like I had known the main character Bruce Robertson. Everything I just mentioned translate from the book to the film for me I feel the same emotions from the book and the film. However for the film it does help that James McAvoy is playing Bruce Robertson but while reading the book knowing he'd been cast for the main character, I could see him playing the character. However in the film his character looks worse for wear because he's a pervert, alcoholic, psycho, rude and a cop.  

The plot of the film is that James McAvoy's character Bruce Robertson is a Cop his police force are offering a promotion and he will stop at nothing to get that promotion to win back his family his wife and daughter. The film is an 18 certificate and has swearing, sex scenes and drug scenes in it. The location of the film is set in Scotland James McAvoy's home town. I really want to go to Scotland. The soundtrack for the film is amazing it just ties in with the film so well one of my favourite songs on it is Creep by Clint Mansell and Coco Summer. 































James McAvoy gives an amazing performance as his character and he takes you on this emotional roller-coaster of a journey and in the end makes you feel sorry for him or he did for me anyway. If you haven't seen this film I seriously recommend that you do because it's not just about sex and drugs, it actually has a story to it. Also I thought it was lovely how James got to use his Scottish accent in this film as his fans will know you rarely hear it for a film normally they want him to use a British accent. I'm saying there is nothing wrong with that but it's just nice to hear his accent for a change.
