You’re in Frankfurt on a Monday night, have a spare 6 euros and don’t know what to do?! Come to Sneak Preview!
Sneak Preview is where you pay just 6 euros to see a film that isn’t out yet – but on one condition – you won’t know what film it is until it starts!
I’ve been going for over a year now… I’ve been a little lax in recent weeks since I usually have other things to do on a Monday night but it really is super fun every time I go. To show you the wide range of films we’ve had at Sneak, here is my top 5 best Sneak films, and top 5 worst. YAY!
Top 5 best films
The best ever was Hysteria. It’s basically the story of how the vibrator came about; set in old time London and starring Maggie Smith who is awesome. This film was not only super funny but educational too! What’s not to like?
2. Moonrise Kingdom
If you’ve not ever seen Moonrise Kingdom, SHAME ON YOU. It’s sooooo good. A whimsical tale of a cub scout who fell in love with a girl, it’s sometimes awkward in the way that young love is often awkward, but is fun for young viewers as well as seasoned film goers. By the way, if you like the fashion from the film, get inspiration here for Moonrise Kingdom outfits!
3. Crazy, Stupid Love
I love Emma Stone. Any film with Emma Stone in it is instantly a winner for me. I wish I was her. She’s so funny and cute and lovely. Not only does this film have Emma Stone in it, but it also has Ryan Gosling, who is my “celeb free-pass“. Omg. Ryan Gosling.
Although any film with these two in would be in my top 5 film anyway, this film is super funny and clever and a blast for all viewers. Did I mention Ryan Gosling?
Disney’s most recent masterpiece. Also, Scottish accents are so awesome. If a guy has a Scottish accent I go weak at the knees almost instantly.
“I’LL BEH FAITIN’ FUH ME OUHN HANNND!!!”
5. Attack the Block
Adam Buxton is amazing. I LOVE the Adam and Joe podcasts, and am a huge fan of everything they do. This film isn’t Adam’s finest work, but it’s still pretty good – A story of “yoofs” from London who come up against enemies a little stronger than the average bobby. It would have been higher on the list but I kind of thought that it glorified yob culture a little bit. It’s something I feel ashamed about as a Brit and I would have liked for the film to show that it’s not cool to be a nob a little bit more than it does.
Top 5 worst films (in reverse order for fun times)
Twilight guy tries to prove that he can do things other than Twilight, fails.
Most memorably line – “OMG THERE’S A BOMB IN THE OVENNNNN! I’M NOT DYING HEREEE!!”
The best part of this film was that Gwyneth Paltrow dies in the first few minutes. That’s not a spoiler – she’s dead on the poster. A “scary” film about a super virus that spreads over the world. Makes you want to carry hand sanitiser forever.
Other Twilight guy tries to prove that he can do things other than Twilight. Fails. Spoilers – nothing happens in this film. Good for fans of the inside of limos.
2. Act of Valor
American navy guys go and save the world from evil terrorists.
While the storyline is ok (though a big pile of biased American propaganda), the thing that makes this film one of the worst films in the world is that they didn’t have real actors but real navy guys. Who can’t act.
Most memorable quote -
1. Black Gold
I just… there are no words. The storyline, the acting, the accents, the logic… everything in this film goes in the “what the fudge” category. I can’t even put it into words. Look it up on IMDB. Watch it if you like pain.
Though there are often droughts of good films, Sneak is really good and I highly recommend checking it out. It’s on every Monday night from 9pm at the CineStar cinema. Book online HERE!
