The incredible story of a family who were involved in the Tsunami disaster in Thailand in 2004. It makes you hold your breath and takes you on such an emotional journey throughout the film as well.
An agent working for a private company suddenly finds herself outcast after she is betrayed and set up on her latest mission.
Two brothers Ian (McGregor) and Terry (Farrell) both end up having money problems. Ian wants to venture into the hotel business and Terry gambles it all away. An opportunity presents itself to get all the money they need from their rich uncle, but only if they do him a favour first. How far will they go to get the money?
The downside of going to the cinema once maybe twice a week is that you will end up going to see some bad films at some point. Or maybe not just bad, but disappointing after they have been built up so much. I have managed to see 41 films from the year 2010, so picked by 10 worst from those!
Some of the films may come as a bit of a shock on the worst film list, but just how I felt watching the films. The more I have looked over my list the more it appears disappointment set in whilst really looking forward to seeing the films.
Each Monday (hopefully) a song or part from a movie musical will be blogged about. This may vary from a scene, a musical number, facts about the musical as a whole or just general chat about the musical. Occasionally comparisons maybe made between the stage show and movie version.
If you have read my blog for any length of time this will all probably come as no surprise to you and you will already know that I am a total musicals geek! I figured it would be good for me to write more about different aspects of musicals and have been trying to figure out a way to do that for quite some time now. I think this musical moments feature on a Monday is certainly the way forward for me to spend some time writing about musicals.
I know the musical genre is often only enjoyed by a select few, everyone still seems to have one musical that they actually quite like (even if they struggle to admit it). So hopefully this feature will at some point have something for everyone in the different movies that will come up! It may even encourage people to watch more musicals.
If you want something from a movie musical to be included in the feature at some point please feel free to ask!
A reporter(McGregor) attempting to head into Iraq might just have the story of a lifetime when he meets Lyn Cassady (Clooney), a guy who claims to be a former member of the U.S. Army’s First Earth Battalion, a unit that employs paranormal powers in their missions.
I cannot wait to see this movie, it looks great. It is definetly going to be the Friday Night movie at the cinema this week. So four more posters have been been released featuring George Clooney, Kevin Spacey, Ewan McGregor and Jeff Bridges and of course the goat.
Just come across the poster for a film which has some big name stars and a goat . . . which is based on a reporter getting the story of a lifetime.
The only thing I had heard about this film before watching it was that the Emirates was blown up. I did not realise that it was more a drama and very deep into the mind of someone who lost everything in those few seconds of the explosion. The story focuses on a young mother (Michelle Williams) and her 4 year old son. She does not seem to have the best relationship with her husband, and cheats on him with strangers.
I am a massive Jim Carrey fan, and his grin on this picture just makes me want to see it soooooo much !!!
To begin with, I think it is very important to clarify that I am such a massive fan of the glam rock era and love it all. Especially T.Rex/Marc Bolan who was just my favorite, love David Bowie too and kinda think the whole Brian Slade character kinda looked a bit like Bowie. With being such a huge fan of glam rock, when I started watching this movie I was wondering why I had never actually heard of this movie before . . . let along seen it. So thanks again to netflix for allowing me the chance to watch this movie.
Todays picture of the day is going to be from Moulin Rouge . . . spectacular, spectacular. I think this picture is just great. I adore the romance of this movie.
I think this is really interesting !!!
Ewan McGregor felt a special link to the Catholic Church while shooting controversial new movie Angels & Demons in the Vatican City – his costume was made by the pope’s own tailor.
McGregor plays a priest alongside Tom Hanks in the film, a prequel to controversial 2006 drama The Da Vinci Code.
The feature was expected to upset Catholic scholars in the Vatican because it’s storyline deals with a brotherhood within the Catholic Church whose members commit murder to ‘protect’ Jesus Christ’s lineage.
Reviewers at The Vatican’s newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, who attended a special screening earlier this month, dubbed the film inaccurate but “harmless”.
And McGregor has revealed the project got an early boost, when Pope Benedict XVI’s tailor agreed to make his character’s cassock.
He says, “It was so beautiful because it was made by the Pope’s tailor. I don’t know that the Pope knows that. I don’t know that he’d be too pleased. The Vatican weren’t very happy about The Da Vinci Code and as a hangover to that weren’t too thrilled about Angels & Demons. But there’s no anti-Catholicism or anti-Christianity in the movie – otherwise I wouldn’t have made it. But his tailor made me my cassock, yeah.”
