The Favourite was an entirely different kind of movie. This period piece was raunchy, stylish, opulent and wicked all at the same time. Based on the previews I was excited to see it and it really delivered what I was hoping for.
There was humor and a lot of it. I honestly can’t decide which of the three main characters were funnier. They all had such a commanding presence that picking one as my favorite would be impossible. Each one played off of the others impeccably. (I bet they had fun making this film.)
There was a tremendous amount of back stabbing, lying, and self preservation at work here. These women had their own agendas and really wouldn’t stop at anything to achieve them.
The sets and costumes were a delight to watch; the sheer majesty of their lifestyle was so decadent that my envy was running thick. Did they really live like that?
The movie certainly earned its R rating. There was some kinky stuff going on in that palace. All day long, every day, and every night. It’s not a movie for youngsters.
If you like quirky, somewhat the off-beaten-path types of movies, then I’d recommend this one to you. You’ll get a little bit of everything with The Favourite.
About The Peetimes: I decided upon 2 Peetimes. Each has their advantages and disadvantages. This was a very difficult movie to do, due to the character development continually taking place, and the plot is thick with many layers. I’m comfortable with these 2, but pay close attention to each Peetime’s meta.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Favourite. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
