Henry (Eric Bana) is a time traveler and had realised his gift to suddenly disappear when he was 8 years old. When he was older he met a 6 year old Claire (Rachel McAdams). Claire used to remember everything that Henry had said to her on each of the separate visits he made to her over the years. This was from when she was 6 to 18, that was the last time she saw him until meeting him again years later (however, he did no know who she was as he had not been back to that time yet). To begin with I thought this film was going to be a little complicated with the jumping between times and how to keep track of which ages they both were at different points in the story, but it was not actually that difficult to keep track of what was going on.
I just adore Meryl Streep so therefore just love watching her in all of her different roles. So I cannot wait to see Julie & Julia as it looks like its going to be very good. Another great performance from Meryl looks on the cards, I am also very much looking forward to seeing her on screen again with Stanley Tucci, as they had some good scenes together in “The Devil Wears Prada”.
This film takes a special place in my filming watching history, the first movie I have seen in 3D in the cinema. While not usually a genre and type of film I really get excited about going to see. But with having a very handy Unlimited Cineworld card (although having to pay an extra 1.50 for 3D is not the best) I do go to see things I would not have gone to see like 5 years ago, as when you pay monthly and can go as many times as you want, makes it easy to go and see everything.
Just watched the trailer for Heath Ledger’s final film, with his role also completed by Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell. I think it looks very different, and I for one cannot wait to see this film.
Here are some pictures from Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart’s up and coming rom-com “Love Happens”. I for one think that they look very good together as a couple.
Before I even begin to mention the film, I thought I should state that I am a fan of Jason Statham. Yes he is not the best actor in the world but there is just something about him that I find so attractive about him. Isnt it a shame though that he does films like this which are just not good at all.
Just come across the poster for Ellen Page’s next starring role. In Drew Barrymore’s Whip It, which is about a small town misfit who deals with her small town misery after discovering a roller derby league nearby.
The main reason for wanting to watch this was to see how talented Emma Roberts is. I have heard a lot about her for a few years now, being a big Julia Roberts fan and yes you can see they are related when you look at Emma. So that was why I actually watched this film to start off with, as it was not really on my want to see list.
The box office smash of the summer of 2008. The feel good film of the summer and still a massive feel good film now. I went to see this in the cinema, maybe a couple of weeks after the release and the cinema was still packed. Which was just fantastic. People had been to see this film so many times, and I could just see why. It was one of those movies that yes they may not be the best in regards of acting etc but it was such an escape from real life and just over an hour and 40 minutes of enjoyment when you can forget everything and just sing along and love the characters.
Well I missed the cinema release for this film, which I was rather upset about as been looking forward to this film since reading the book. I came across this newer poster the other day.
So I have just pre-ordered this film from my old faithful website play.com it comes out on 31st August so I therefore do not have long to wait.
A Tarantino film about the Nazi’s, yes you just know its going to be blood and guts every now and then. With some random conversations (everyone knows the burger conversation from Pulp Fiction). Tarantino likes to be a bit different and kinda do his own thing.
Another poster with pictures on this time for New York, I Love You
Just come across a video more about Jacob Black and with Taylor Lautner talking about the character and New Moon the movie.
Just come across the latest poster for Dorian Gray. I actually think this one is a little bit better than the first one I posted the other week.
SATC is my favorite EVER TV Show. I have seen every episode so many times, have the shoebox box set of the whole series. So when they announced that the movie was going to made. I was so happy about it, I even went to see it twice in the cinema when it first came out last year. Then when I went to NYC last year I was in heaven in the HBO shop buying lots of SATC merchandise.
To celebrate the release of “The Time Traveler’s Wife today I thought I would post 3 stills from the movie that I have come across (and hopefully a review will follow very soon, as looking forward to this film). I have to admit the more and more I see Eric Bana the more I rate him as an actor.
I cannot wait for this movie, as I just adore Hilary and Richard.
I just got excited as I did not realise Colin Firth was in this !!!
I think its nice to see that a role in a movie can help an actor in their personal life sort things out. Especially after her role in “The Wrestler”.
Evan Rachel Wood has credited her portrayal as Mickey Rourke’s daughter in The Wrestler with helping to resolve estrangement issues with her own dad.
The actress admits the role made her face her own family problems and now she and her father have never been closer – in fact they’re planning to star opposite one another in a family production of Romeo & Juliet in North Carolina.
Wood insists such a project would never have been possible before she played Rourke’s estranged daughter in The Wrestler.
She tells i-d magazine, “All these issues came up that I didn’t know I still had until I was forced to go there and it totally reconnected me with him (father).
“Everything that’s been pent-up over the years suddenly comes out, then you don’t talk for a while, and then you slowly reconcile.
“There wasn’t any closeness. We had to get to know each other again. Getting to know him now, it’s like, ‘Oh my God, you are so cool.’”
This new romantic comedy with Sandra Bullock and man of the moment Bradley Cooper really does look funny by the trailer, lets just hope is not one of those that show all the best bits in the trailer . . .
I am leaving the USA tonight to go back to England (which means YAY to Unlimted Cineworld pass being renewed !!! ) but sad about leaving Netflix. Got to catch up on some classic movies which I had missed !!! I just wish I could get it in England, but nope LOVEFiLm is over there . . . does anyone have it? If so is it worth the money?
When you see Al Pacino’s name above the title of a film you really do expect it to be something special or at least good right? Of course he has built up a fantastic reputation for himself over the years. But 88 Minutes while he is decent, it really lacks something. What annoyed me the most in this film was the constant phone calls, it was like i’ll call you back then his phone ringing. Just shows how technology can ruin the movies too! While watching I thought Orange had eventually go there wish and a movie revolved around mobile phone conversations. (UK cinema-goers will get this, because of the adverts on before the film starts).
It has taken me a week and a half to write down and then cut down my top 250 favorite films. I have now managed to get them into number order (some are probably interchangeable, and depending on the day I done it could end up in a different order).
I started off with the top 10 and then the top 20 which hasnt really changed much over the years. Then made groups of 20 and 10 and started dividing each film into a section. Then within that section they got their number, might not be the best way but it certainly did work and gave me a very good list.
Some films on the list are probably going to seem very strange, but I have a layout set up for each film. A picture from the film, a brief description, favorite moment(s), favorite quote(s) and reasons why. The higher up the list I go the more detail and reasons will come into it.
I am still trying to decide how many films to post together. Might start off as 10 then drop to 5 then 1 as I move higher up the list.
At the moment I am aiming for Monday 17th August for the first in my list 250-240 possibly!
