I have spoken about this before but I have now quit TWO fandoms because of Psychotic Fans. The young actor Timothee Chalamet and his costar Armie Hammer are great actors that Unfortunately are Now being followed and are being obsessed over by cringy fans that want to know EVERYTHING About their personal lives and I mean EVERYTHING. Cringy Fans which I assume most are underage and have no Fucking idea what a bit of Maturity means, are percolating into their fandom. They have no idea what the book Call Me By Your Name is About nor about the level of High Culture Luca Guadagnino and the movie itself have. All they care about is the sexual relationship between the two characters and when I say “care” I am referring to the use of foul language to describe how the characters or the actors themselves physically look like. ENOUGH!! This is the Cringe worthy Side of Social Media and Disgusting Obsessive Fans. Armie Hammer is a happily married man with two beautiful children and Tim’s status I could care less about. If he’s dating good, if he’s not good too. I’m hesitant but I’m looking forward to CMBYN sequel, Luca Guadagnino is a master director and I believe he’ll make a great sequel in the Felini style.
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! 😥
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!”
I have Nothing but praised and Love for these two films. Lady Bird and The Big Sick are Amazing films. The independent movie industry deserves more recognition. Big Little Lies is another amazing show from HBO.
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!
