Yesterday - Film BBC1 8.15pm

Post by mab01uk »

Saw this at the cinema, quite an entertaining film and no ads on BBC1 8.15 tonight and then iPlayer.
“Following a road accident, struggling singer-songwriter Jack Malik wakes up in an alternative reality where no-one seems to have ever heard of The Beatles. As he plays their songs and almost unwittingly starts to take credit for them, his career suddenly takes off.”

Sometimes it is good to just watch a light hearted film, Yesterday is of course not a film to be taken too seriously and not for everyone but if you prefer to watch the contents of itv adverts then I hope you enjoyed them instead.....

Paul McCartney secretly snuck into a cinema to watch ‘Yesterday’ and “loved it” :lol:

I happened across it and watched it. Like you said - light hearted, baseline entertainment for a Sunday evening and a break from footbal, tennis.....
It wasn't too bad, but certainly not a 'must watch'.

The trouble is the constant adverts can turn and hour and a half long film into a two hours plus saga. :lol:

I record everything with ads on a DVR/Virgin/Sky box/etc and fast forward through all the ad breaks.....OR if watching live tv I wait for 15 minutes or so before watching say an hour long programme from the start, which again means you can f/f through the ad breaks and still finish the programme on time having caught up by the end. If you don't watch/record any live TV as it's broadcast (or BBC iPlayer) and only use the 'Catch up' tv services or Netflix, etc you don't even need a tv licence.

It was something to watch on a Sunday night. Very light-hearted indeed and few nods for Beatles geeks like Something being played on Ukeleles (written George who by all accounts was a Ukelele obsessive). I could appreciate the main actor (Himesh Patel) played and sung all the songs himself. Will I ever bother watching it again? no, probably not.
Of course I know what a dipstick is, you get called something often enough you look it up!
