Almost Famous (movie)

This movie is by Cameron Crowe. The same guy that gave us the wonderful LLoyd Dobler playing In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel for the girl  he loved, Diane Court. I don’t care for the movie he is most known for, Jerry Maguire. Nonetheless, I LOVE Almost Famous and Say Anything. I was a teen when this movie came out and I immediately bought the soundtrack which only deepened my love for classic 60’s and 70’s rock. Say Anything Also has an amazing soundtrack.

Eddie Redmayne & Ezra Miller

I love these two actors. Not only are they incredibly talented and handsome but come across as the sweetest and nicest guys in interviews. They seem to be humble and intelligent.  I love them and can’t way to see Fantastic Beast again.

 

 

Dirty Dancing

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! 😥

The Promise (movie)

Deeply moving film staring Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale. This movie not only shows the Atrocities committed by the Turks and the Ottoman Empire against the systematic ethnic cleansing of the Armenians but also how people overcome the biggest obstacles in life.  I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like to live in a war torn country and loosing all the people you love.

I love this review by a youtube user.

“I just watched The Promise in the theatre today… I’m writing in an objective way, and as a film expert I can assure you it’s a flawless movie It’s authentic, powerful and romantic This movie doesn’t just show the dark side of the Ottoman Empire during the war as many would presume, but it also shows the unconditional friendship between the two nations and how help was still there during those dark times It also shows how love was the key to survival and how love always wins (no matter what race, religion or gender) I also praise the cast & crew for such great script, visuals and acting This movie is definitely worth watching And don’t judge it or rate it if you haven’t watched it Be fair!”

OH Hollyweird!!

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”.

The Zookeeper’s Wife

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.

Forrest Gump

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!

Sophie and the Rising Sun

Incredible book and movie. It is Devastating that after all the “advances” We Humans have supposedly made we still have the same amount  (if Not More) of Ignorance, Bigotry, Hatred and Racism as before. The movie is now available on Netflix.
