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.

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!”
