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.

Spling's Galileo Pick of the Week: Scream


Spling's Pick of the Week - Scream at Fedisa Rooftop

SCREAM @ FEDISA ROOFTOP (20 Jan)

While the iconic Scream mask has been ridiculed, it has earned its place in Hollywood history. The late Wes Craven was known for his genre-bending and innovation, trademarks which have been neatly encapsulated by Scream. Part tribute to horror films and part self-referential comedy, this slasher has entrenched itself in pop culture and Neve Campbell has forever been emblazoned on our collective imagination as Sidney Prescott.

Scary enough to give you chills and funny enough to lampoon the horror genre as we know it, this isn't any ordinary slasher, but a masterful film from the mind of a horror luminary. While dark and often amusing, we're constantly thrown off-balance by surprising thrills with some nail-biting and blood-soaked scenes. While a piece of '90s memorabilia, it resurrected the teen slasher genre in its time inspiring film franchises like I Know What You Did Last Summer and Urban Legend.

This highly acclaimed horror thriller is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.

Spling's Galileo Pick of the Week: Boyhood


Spling's Pick of the Week - Boyhood at Kirstenbosch

BOYHOOD @ KIRSTENBOSCH (11 Jan)

At almost three hours, Boyhood is a monumental drama. The filmmakers could have gone to much darker places, but turn this film into something heartwarming and inspiring... opting to celebrate rather than berate this thing we call life. As a fly-on-the-wall drama, it's fascinating to see a slice of Texan suburban life and the daily struggles of an ordinary middle class family. So fascinating that we're completely absorbed and entertained by the characters, through all their highs and lows.

Boyhood deserves full credit for its ambitious feat, taking a small budget and creating something truly inspiring and memorable. It's a wonderful showcase for Ellar Coltrane, it cements Richard Linklater as an auteur and brings audiences a fresh, genuine, honest, insightful and beautifully executed drama and time capsule for the ages.

This Oscar-winning drama is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.
