What Do You Mean You ‘Weren’t Invited’?


Last night.

Cine World, Parnell Street, Dublin 1

The Irish premier of Black 47 which opened the Audi Dublin International Film Festival.

Black 47, a revenge drama set during The Great Famine, was warmly (and occasionally less than warmly) recieved at the recent Berlin Film Festival.

NO popcorn.

    Its probably just me but I just cant watch anything with that barry fella in it. I just hate the look of him.

        This is like my distrust of Miriam O Genuinely based entirely on how she looks when photographed.

        Makes perfect sense. Carry on.

            Oh no. Not at all.

            I’m sure she’s a perfectly nice lady bit at the same time… there’s an absent twinkle in her eye that I just don’t trust.

          Why must you sup of the ‘Haterade’? Be light of heart and come skip through my fields of daisies fertilized by unicorn poop.

            ‘Haterade’ I like that.
            I don’t like the look of him either. Bit of a pup as my mother might say.

        Do we say the same of Conor McGregor? The scamp.

        (Bert, I already know your answer stop shouting at me)

        1. Yep

          I would certainly understand the negative perception about McGregor as he has used his Irishness on the world stage and been a bit of a knob at times.

          This kid just seems like a talented actor who is doing well (Dunkirk, films with Gleason, Farrell etc.) but looks a bit of a plonk in the photos I’ve seen.

          Fair play to him. I know nobody is really going after him anyway……The scamp.

      2. Bertie Blenkinsop

        Yeah, he’s not really in any thing that I watch (I’ve never seen Love/Hate for example, that’s not for any other reason than it doesn’t particularly interest me) so he doesn’t really impact on me.

      Reminds me tangentially of the time I asked Dolours Price if the grub in the restaurant where we both dined was superior to the fare on offer in chokey. Reader, a drink was involved, as was peeling off like The Flash.

    This film should be interesting. I can’t recall another feature length film depicting the famine.

    As a pedant, it behoves me to point out that I have no idea what ‘recieved’ means unless you meant ‘received’.
