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.

Spling's Galileo Pick of the Week: Interstellar


Spling's Pick of the Week - Interstellar at Rustenberg

INTERSTELLAR @ RUSTENBERG WINE ESTATE (4 Feb)

Interstellar is a messy masterpiece, an ambitious, inconsistent yet intermittently brilliant film with a stellar cast and many great influences. It's a deep space sci-fi drama with fine ingredients, and while it runs 169 minutes long, Nolan still manages to compel us, even when it becomes unwieldy.

As expected, Nolan's able to teleport us to another dimension along with his intrepid space-time travelers. We're enamored by the breathtaking visuals, witnessing surreal moments that have just enough real environment familiarity to keep the story grounded in the possible. Then the sound design and Hans Zimmer's futuristic soundtrack is equally incredible, combining to give us a unique and completely immersive sight and sound experience. Read more...

This mindbending space drama thriller is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.

Spling's Galileo Pick of the Week: Birdman


Spling's Pick of the Week - Birdman at V&A Waterfront

BIRDMAN @ V&A WATERFRONT (26 Jan)

Michael Keaton has always had that quirky, manic, unpredictable and crazy charm to him. Yet, he's never had the screen time, the art house clout or the self-referential smarts to turn in an award-winning Michael Keaton performance... until now.

While it features a terrific cast and equally impressive performances, the real attraction of Birdman is the seamless cinematography from Gravity's Emmanuel Lubezki. We're given a simulated one shot film, shifting from one scene to the next like a roving unhinged camera eye. The effect is slightly eerie as we move in a continuous state of reality through claustrophobic backstage drama, but we adapt to the stream of consciousness and start to appreciate the visual artistry.

This quirky, manic and unpredictable drama is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.
