“And you’re listening to that song and that drive with the people you love most in this world. And in this moment I swear, we are infinite.” The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Happenstance means that I have recently been a regular at the Odeon. Is it because of the salty popcorn? The sugary sweets? Or is it because of the brilliant films which have recently been shown? Although I would like to say the former, it is the latter.
2012 is a fantastic year for Film, whether it is cinema which is showcasing British talent, ‘My Brother the Devil’, or a big budget film such as ‘Skyfall’, or even animation from across the Pond which is pushing boundaries once again in ‘Paranorman’.
The medium of film has changed and developed throughout time. Including the way we view it, with modern society as it is nowadays, with tablets, smart phones and laptops, it couldn’t be easier to view our favourite films at the touch of a button.
But, there is something quite exciting and quite rare nowadays to go to the movies. It can feel like such a treat, perhaps because of the high prices, or because there is something fun about being plunged in to darkness, with a room full of strangers, eating salty food and sweets. Often with friends, or loved ones. What better way to experience a film?
So, this week we are dealing with films which are current, of the now, of the moment. The Rabbit Film Section will be serving you what is hot right now in your local cinema. So, if you agree with our team of writers, or even if you disagree. Then get down to your local cinema and enjoy being in the cinema. Take a break from essays and reading, stats and calculations. Just enjoy the film.
I would like to thank The Rabbit Film Section’s dedicated team of writers, who’s enthusiasm never fails, dedication never wavers and who always ensure that the section is chock full of interesting content. So thank you, keep up the good work.
