Single Father
(2010)

too much melodrama
okay, fist: I love David Tennant, reason I saw this. Second: I only saw one episode. So perhaps it gets better. But the melodrama in the first episode was just too much for me. The acting is way lower than normal BBC television. The story could have been so good. But I couldn't detach to the characters because the total over the top acting. That mustn't be the fault of the actors. It is in the script and the directing and everything together is just not very good. The only performance I liked was the one of the oldest daughter, Natasha Watson as Lucy. Probably a movie for David Tennant fans, and teens and grans on holiday. But this is definitely not David Tennant at his best.

Miss Potter
(2006)

a boring film about a great woman
The movie is about the author of children's books, Beatrix Potter. She is over thirty, unmarried and still lives with her parents. She succeeds to publish her books and engages with her publisher (Ewan McGregor). Her parents are against the marriage. Until there everything in her life seemed to be fine and I asked myself, what is the movie about, where is the conflict. Then her fiancé dies and the movie gets more serious, but soon she seems to be well again and buys a house and a new man appears. I found the movie quiet dull. The writer seems to never heard about that a story needs a conflict to be entertaining. Good actors cant save a bad script. But what is worse, it does not do justice to Miss Potter. I didn't know anything about her before, but when everything on wikipedia is right about her, she was very interested in Biology, plants and animals, nothing about that in the movie, and there are a lot of interesting details in her life (like winning painting contest as a child), that could have been great in a movie, but none of them are in it here. My recommendation: if you want a feel goof movie on a Saturday morning: watch it, if not: don't.
