I love a bit of Bill Nighy, and he’s on fine form in The Limehouse Golem, a silver screen adaptation of Peter Ackroyd’s novel. We’re shaking things up a little bit on the YouTube channel. Now Aly and I both have Odeon Limitless (not a plug, the nearest cinema to us just happens to be an Odeon) we’re going to try and check out a film a week, and then have a little conversation about our thoughts.
First up, it’s The Limehouse Golem, chosen primarily because of an impressive subway billboard. An intriguing premise, a talented cast, murder and mystery in the city of the Ripper. We’re not going to be giving out in-depth scores, just a simple thumbs up or thumbs down. I wouldn’t call these videos reviews, either. They are conversation pieces; little chats and snippets of opinion. Hopefully you find them interesting.
It’s difficult to talk about a Victorian murder mystery without getting into plot specifics, so do be aware that there are a few spoilers. I’ll probably keep running them under the ‘Spoiler Alert’ banner just to keep things on the safe side.
So, with that all said, here are a few of our musings on The Limehouse Golem! Let us know your thoughts (on the film, the video itself, the new style, the weather etc.) in the comments, leave a Like on the video if you enjoyed it, and don’t forget to subscribe!
