Finally, a nice one.
Er, no. It's a really nasty piece of work.
" I found myself thinking he was a mix of Edith Piaf, Matt Monro and the late Tory MP Alan Clark."
Being compared to Alan Clark is not very 'nice'. It's actually a bit below the belt given that politicians notorious outbursts on 'sensitive topics' such as race relations. And he was a mass philanderer, so what's the link to Morrissey? Other than cantankerous outbursts and inability to self-edit before putting foot-in-mouth....Both have/had an entitlement agenda regarding media deference and coverage, but in Clark's case it was based on inheriting a Kent castle and wallowing in privilege inherited -rather than the privilege Morrissey accrues from his pop culture earnings from honest toil. It really isn't very 'nice' as a comparison at all, unless I'm el plotto losto and have missed something? The UKIP Nigel Farage car-crash interview Moz gave? Still a totally unfair link to nasty types who still refer to 'Bongo Bong Land' and think it's ok.
After being compared to Jeremy Clarkson, I'm sure Moz will be absolutely delighted by this 'nice' review. NOT! Of course, the author might just be a bit thick and didn't realise how 'inappropriate' such a link is. It's a vile thing to say and far more damaging than the Telegraph dismissal as it's covert and below the radar. Those 'in the know' will immediately raise an eyebrow at the comparison to The Rt Hon Alan Clark. Any sub-editor at the Grauniad should have picked this howler up and removed it. Possibly left in as a depth-charge. The conspiracy continues!!!
"Racist comments from Clark about Britain's black community result in a press outrage"
If Moz gets out of bed the wrong side, The Guardian can expect a fuming Letter Before Action for this one, even if that's pointless compliance with the gangster legal codes used by House of Fraudz types like Alan Clark. Or they can explain how and in what way Morrissey can be fairly compared to the deceased crackpot Clark.
So, in writing this, am I 'trolling' or pointing out something very sinister or very stupid?
"then you will see the glass, hidden in the grass"
Once again BrummieBoy totally misses the point in his eagerness to post yet more tediously overlong, self-admiring drivel. Yes, there IS something about Morrissey that reminds one of the late Alan Clark - not that he exactly resembles the man, but something about him IS very reminiscent - the bone structure, the receding quiff. Pete Bradshaw is a fine critic (and part-time comedy writer/performer) and anyone familiar with his work - indeed anyone with a BRAIN - would immediately understand what he meant. But then comprehension isn't BrummieBoy's strong point. Nice to see he's still here though and still cares enough about Morrissey (despite his unconvincing protests to the contrary) to keep writing.
No. How about you piss off. Permanently. You are a vulgar, unhappy little person. Morrissey wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire, and the rest of us would whip out marshmallows and roast them to a golden brown by the light of you flaming body. If you were lucky.
Remember when Brummie was outed as a racist?
Looking forward to seeing morrissey25 now after reading this review, going on Monday night, few pints of strong German beer first always makes it more enjoyable, be interesting to see how many of my fellow cultists will be there as brummieboy calls us
That's quite something. It seems to me you've waited for a positive review before looking forward to seeing it? All the other less positive reviews had no effect whatsoever?
Yes, this was a nice one. We can't be surprised that the reviews are mixed, Morrissey isn't for everyone. He never was, and has never tried to be.
I think this is primarily a film for fans. Hopefully it will get to some who are interested in Moz, but never got to see him live.
I am completely excited about seeing this on the big screen! I saw him live a couple of days after this show, show and he was phenomenal!
Are you suggesting if he's not very good it's the fault of the people who say he's not very good?
As for the people who claim he is a greatest hits act these same people probably criticised him when he refused to play smiths tracks. He can't win either way
