Spling's Galileo Pick of the Week: The Dark Knight


Spling's Pick of the Week - The Dark Knight @ Central Park

THE DARK KNIGHT @ CENTRAL PARK (10 Mar)

Christopher Nolan is a perfectionist, a conductor who insists that every instrument at his disposal is finely calibrated and double-checked. This means his films are always beautiful and reinforced by strong writing, powerful music and breathtaking visuals. His clinical precision could be accused of siphoning the warmth, imperfection and joy out of film, but he does tend to work on the colder, darker more serious side of the spectrum as evidenced by The Dark Knight. A legendary superhero match up between Batman and the Joker is given the same epic treatment as Heat, which saw Hollywood legends Al Pacino and Robert De Niro go head-to-head. The Dark Knight represents the pinnacle of superhero films, leaving Tim Burton's original Batman in the dust, a pantomime by contrast. Beautifully shot, pulsating in its dark majesty and enigmatic by virtue of Heath Ledger's maniacal performance , this is a good example of a sequel that managed to top an already excellent Part 1.

This groundbreaking superhero crime saga is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.

Spling's Galileo Pick of the Week: The Shawshank Redemption


Spling's Pick of the Week - The Shawshank Redemption at Castle Of Good Hope

THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION @ CASTLE OF GOOD HOPE (3 Mar)

Many will be surprised to learn that The Shawshank Redemption is based on a short story from Stephen King, the master of horror. Having authored The Green Mile, another acclaimed crime drama among many horrors, it seems he has a knack for ideas that make great films. Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman immortalised themselves in this deeply affecting prison drama about two men who build a friendship on common decency over many years. What's special about The Shawshank Redemption is that it doesn't rely on gimmicks or effects, conveying its story through powerful visuals, strong dramatic themes and solid performances, which link together to transcend the celluloid and touch the soul. It's an absolute rarity for films to do this, which is probably why it deserves a place in hearts of those that see it. Screening this brilliant drama at the Castle of Good Hope will certainly add another dimension to this timeless film.

This monumental coming-of-age drama is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.

Spling's Galileo Pick of the Week: Jurassic Park


Spling's Pick of the Week - Jurassic Park at Meerendal

JURASSIC PARK @ MEERENDAL (24 Feb)

In its time, Jurassic Park was at the cutting edge of CGI, bringing dinosaurs to life and setting a new standard in the process. Just like those first visitors, audiences were blown away by the eye-popping visuals and compelled by Steven Spielberg's dramatic realisation. Some 80 years after Arthur Conan Doyle's science fiction adventure, The Lost World, captivated readers resulting in a film adaptation in 1925, Jurassic Park reinvented the genre in blockbuster fashion. Almost 25 years later, Jurassic Park remains a classic, conjuring up nostalgic feelings for kids who sat in wonder at the real-life museum exhibit. The film has aged well, a testament to the excellent film-making, gripping storyline and ceaseless theme park peril that launched a franchise and necessitated the recent reboot, Jurassic World. Where would we be without T-Rex and those pesky velociraptors? Now you can watch Jurassic Park out in the open, just remember to keep a glass of water nearby... you know, just in case!

This spectacular and revolutionary adventure is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.

Spling's Galileo Pick of the Week: When Harry Met Sally


Spling's Pick of the Week - When Harry Met Sally at Nooitgedacht Estate

WHEN HARRY MET SALLY @ NOOITGEDACHT ESTATE (14 Feb)

When Harry Met Sally is one of those timeless "romcoms" that remains as relevant today as it was in the '80s. Sure Hollywood darlings, Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan, have grown older and updated their wardrobes and hairstyles but this Rob Reiner film is testament to the staying power of indelible screenwriting. The unforgettable and funny quote "I'll have what she's having." is how most people remember this nostalgic film, but there's so much more! Nora Ephron's knock-out script, Rob Reiner's sensitive direction and wonderful on-screen chemistry from two effervescent stars makes When Harry Met Sally a classic. It set a new standard for romantic comedies in 1989 and will linger with you thanks to its equally timeless soundtrack.

This classic romantic comedy is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.

Spling's Galileo Pick of the Week: Bridget Jones's Diary


Spling's Pick of the Week - Bridget Jones's Diary

BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY (8 Feb)

Bridget Jones's Diary is a much-loved British romantic comedy about a ditsy, clumsy and adorable woman, who lands herself in all sorts of calamity when it comes to her love life. Bound to be Renée Zellweger's calling card for life, this charming, funny and typically British "romcom" is spirited and full of fun. When it comes to love triangles, it's no wonder Bridget has such a tough decision to make with Colin Firth and Hugh Grant playing her would-be suitors. Self-deprecating, awkward, embarrassing... we're so glad Bridget manages to land on her feet, even if she does get her granny panties into a bunch sometimes!

This hilarious and "proper" romcom is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.
