Best Film of 2014

Okay, so I haven't been to the cinema many times in 2014 (actually just three times, all kids films, what you gonna do?) but yesterday we saw "Paddington" and I thought it was magnificent! IMDB reviews are good as well.

We have been watching the trailer for weeks (and Markus would laugh himself hysterical at the toothbrush and the escalator scenes), but actually this trailer which gives you a better feel for the film's brilliance.

As saw it in German, so didn't hear familiar voices (shame), but it was well translated and just as funny. I found it very moving in places, and close to the beloved original. Very clever adaptation. Funny, thought provoking, action filled, great actors, including the furry kind. Perfect Pre Christmas viewing. As an ex Londoner I loved all the city scenes!

And then I went on youtube and showed the boys the original BBC TV series - it was wonderful to see these episodes again and to hum along to the music. Very happy child of the seventies!
