JUST ONE DAY runs for 100mins and is rated M and SIMPLE BUBLÉ runs for 63mins and is rated PG.

MINI REVIEWS BY JASON KING:

SIMPLY BUBLÉ:

SIMPLY BUBLÉ is an intimate look into the life and journey of the modern king of swing. From Michael’s first break into the music industry to his high profile relationships and dedication to charities.

Michael Bublé is a multi-talented, multi-award winning and multi-platinum artist who has become one of the most successful recording artists of the 21st Century.

This one is really for the fans only. I do not mind his music, do not hunt it down or love it but I do find him incredibly talented. This is an unauthorised biography written and directed by Billy Simpson. It is put together with footage found online or from television and comes off as very “tabloid.” If you are a fan of the man, you get to see a lot of him and it does provide a decent coverage of his “biography.”

I lost attention and played it in the background – to be honest – felt like I watching a “Entertainment Tonight” Special on Bublé.

As I said – if a fan – you will enjoy it.

JUST ONE DAY:

JUST ONE DAY or in the U.S. aka AT MIDDLETON is a delightful little tale set at Middleton University and is set during open day. George (Andy Garcia), the uptight surgeon is there with his son (Spencer Lofranco) and Edith (Vera Farmiga), the free spirited woman who comes across as a bit loopy is there with her daughter Audrey (actually played by Farmiga’s real life daughter Taissa who came to fame this year in American Horror Story).

This is pretty much a reverse film. The adults become the kids and go off and let loose and embrace some remnants of youth while travelling around the Uni – they leave the kids to do their own things while they literally have a ball and experience it all.

Garcia and Farmiga (Snr) are just charming and they made me laugh and cry. I would happily give this to my parents or even a grandparent to watch – it is very heartwarming and their acting shows through and carries the film.

One thing annoyed me – Farmiga’s laugh – too over the top and bordered on too noticeably fake for my liking.

Definitely a heartwarming whimsical film worthy of a Sunday afternoon or rainy day.
