MOVIE REVIEW – Paddington (2014)

It was with great amounts of horror that I saw that Paddington was being brought to the silver screen, especially with the trailer for the film showing nothing more than cheap (admittedly funny) farce.

Instead I’d like to divert your attention to the ‘proper’ International trailer, rather than the one focuses solely on Paddington in the bathroom, which is FAR more representative!

In summation: NICOLE KIDMAN!!!!!

It’s a really nice film, but I really do have to ‘squee’ a little bit over Nicole Kidman, who is great at being ‘evil’ – much better than her previous attempt as Mrs Coulter in the movie adaptation of the Phillip Pullman’s Northern Lights (Pt. 1), The Golden Compass.

Everyone else plays their character very well, and it was nice to see Hugh Bonneville as Mr Brown, outside of his usual Downton Abbey role, Lord Grantham (I’ve avoided BBC ‘Comedy’ like the plague!)

A great movie for the Christmas period and a good way of introducing kids to the Paddington books themselves.
