Welcome to Marwen

Recommended Posts

The reviews were terrible and I understand it has really tanked at the box office. It had a $60 milllion budget too! How anyone could spend that kind of money producing an essentially documentary movie like that is beyond me. It’s not like it’s a globetrotting visually gobsmacking David Attenborough series. So, no, I won’t be seeing it.

Interestingly, though, I did read where a lot of the poor reviews from the audiences were because the guy wore heels - the public didn’t like it.

Anyone going to see this movie?

it's a true story, based on a bloke who wore high heels. True!

Finally caught up with this movie on my TV box.

God, it was dreadful.  A CGI crapfest.  Toy Story meets Suckerpunch with a shoe fetish subplot.

No wonder it tanked at the box office.

I've recently signed up to Netflix, and this film is in the catalogue. I've had a sneak peek, and I know what you mean about Toy Story. Not sure why it was done like that that, but hey-ho. I got the bit where he visits a neighbour to move furniture and she talks about her brother liking high heels (6 inches or higher) and liking lingerie.

I'm aware he had mental health issues post war, and the models got him past some of the horrors he witnessed. I think as low as my expectations are, I am looking forward to watching. Probably quite soon.
