One of the youngest actors to be nominated in decades ( 80 years WOW!) and sad to know the Academy might not vote for him simply because of his youth. I Adore Gary Oldman, one of the most talented and versatile actors I’ve ever seen and although he has been passed for the Oscars for other wonderful performances, I simply don’t think he should win for this particular movie ( Darkest Hour).
Beautiful film directed by Luca Guadagnino and Brilliantly acted by Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer. I was not aware that it is based on a book but will look up the book now and read it. This movie is bound to become a classic and hope it wins at least Best Actor or Best Picture. The movie is sensual and deals with first love and heartbreak.
Summary: “It’s the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a precocious 17- year-old American-Italian boy, spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel).
Elio enjoys a close relationship with his father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture, and his mother Annella (Amira Casar), a translator, who favor him with the fruits of high culture in a setting that overflows with natural delights. While Elio’s sophistication and intellectual gifts suggest he is already a fully-fledged adult, there is much that yet remains innocent and unformed about him, particularly about matters of the heart.
One day, Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio’s father. Amid the sun-drenched
splendor of the setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever”.
I miss Patrick Swayze so much!! 😥 I fell head over heels for him and the movie in general when I saw it. Of course, as a then 5 year old I wasn’t allow to see it when it first came out (lol), but a few years lady I did and it has become One of my All Time favorite films!! “Nobody puts Baby in a corner” 😉
I miss You Patrick and Forever Will! 😥
One of my favorite actresses. I’ve been a fan since Leon the Professional. She’s made her share of shitty movies too, but I still love her acting and Black Swan and Jackie were also incredible. Looking forward to her future projects.
I just saw two movies today that by Hollywood and Mainstream standards are Super “Funny”, “dramatic” and “Good”. I didn’t think the movies were Awful but they weren’t that good nor funny. In fact one of them, This is 40, it’s kinda depressing. The other movie is a very bad remake of one of the Best Latin American/Argentinian Movies I’ve ever seen, The Secret In Their Eyes (El Secreto de Sus Ojos). I Honestly cannot remember the Last Time I saw a mainstream movie I liked, that’s how long it’s been. That’s why I prefer foreign movies over “Hollywood Movies”.
Fantastic movie!! I usually read the book before seeing a movie or see the movie and if I find it’s based on a book and I liked the film then I read the book. Jessica Chastain is one of my favorite actresses and I could not resist. Beautiful movie, incredibly well acted. I cannot wait to read the book.
I can’t believe it’s been 23 years since this movie came out. I was just a kid back then and for a while I didn’t like nor understood this movie. When I saw it for the second time in my early 20’s I still didn’t think much of it. Years passed and when I saw it again I fell in love with it. Tom Hanks gives a heartwarming touching performance, and well deserved the Oscar he got for this role. I love it! From the message of the movie to the incredible soundtrack. Now I consider this movie a masterpiece of American film history, right up there with ET and Star Wars. Beautiful movie!
“The question is: Why? Why are we so determined to worship at the altar of celebrity? Why are we so desperate to turn men into gods?” This is a question posted in this article and it’s also a question I’ve been asking myself for many years now. It’s ok to like celebrities and enjoy their work but it becomes unhealthy when we worship them as demigods. In this obsessed social media world I think we should stop and take stock of our lives instead of trying to live vicariously through famous people. Something’s very wrong with society if we seek fame out of anything in life today.
One prime example of taking obsession too far is the hottest show of the moment; Stranger Things. I literally STOPPED looking up information about the show or the costars because of how creepy and obsessed a lot fans have become. Instagram and Twitter is filled with them and what’s more disturbing is that most of these fans are under age and by under age I mean between the ages of 12-14 years old. I’m grateful I stopped looking up info on Instagram and on Twitter and most of all I’m more than glad I missed the hype surrounding this show. It’s a wonderful show and the first season was great and I wonder just how much can the second season live up to the first one. We need to find ways to end this ridiculous obsession we have not only with celebrities but with social media itself.
One of my favorite new comedies. It’s not only funny but also a tribute to all things 80’s, something those of us born in that early decade can relate to. I love it.
