March 21, 2005
After the positively glowing reccomendation of this film by a friend, who claims it to be one of his favourite films ever, I felt that I should give Groundhog Day another shot. It has been a few years since I've seen it after all, and it might be better with repeated viewing…comments to follow as I watch:
To be entirely up front, I have to tell you that I don't like Bill Murray as a rule. But rules are meant to be broken, so I'll try not to let that colour my judgement straight away.
I have to admit I like the way it starts the whole repetition thing quite subtly, there is no flash of light, or mysterious portal, or bang on the head that sets it off, it just happens.
Hmm…it's really not grabbing me. It's not a bad film. I just think it's more suited to a sunday afternoon when there's nothing else to do.
I do like his piano playing though, and andy macdowal is great. And I do quite like the very end, when they wake up together.
My brain appears to have something against me. Ever since returning from prague I've woken up at 7 o'clock in the morning, except yesterday, when it was about half past six. All this despite telling my body that it can have a lie in. Grrrr. And I'm very tired, so much so that i crawled in to bed at nine o'clock last night.
