Three men each have massive problems with their bosses, and begin to think that they should do something about it. Trying to plan the murders but making it look like a total accident becomes the plan, but it’s really not that simple at all.
Well let’s just say that I pretty much hate Valentine’s Day! So decided to do an anti-Valentine’s day list of films, because lets face it real life isn’t all flowers and chocolates! People get hurt and hearts are broken, so I don’t understand why we should have one day that is supposed to be when we declare our love for someone?!?! If we truly loved them wouldn’t we just randomly buy them gifts and tell them of our love whenever we felt like it?
Anyway check out the following 10 films which have made my list . . . not for the people wanting to see love in a nice way with the happily ever after ending!!!
What are your favorites?
Following on from my top 10 best films of 2009 . . . I decided to list the 10 films I found to be the worst of 2009. I am pretty sure people will agree with a lot of the films on the list. But definitely have one film which will probably surprise everyone as well.
What were your worst films of 2009?
Whilst trying to decide which films to include, I decided the biggest factor had to be if your able to watch it over and over again. I mean your only going to have 8 DVDs to chose from. Pointless having DVDs in there if you could not watch them over and over.
In putting together my list they had to have a good story, acting and interesting characters who you could either relate to or are very likeable.
My initial idea was to narrow it down towards the 8 films by separating the films into different genres. Then attempting to have at least one from each genre, giving a wider variety of film choice. But I am not entirely sure that actually happened when I look at my finished list.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Thought provoking and complex with a very interesting concept.
Brilliant performances from Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey
Has to be watched many times for you to really notice a lot of things in it.
Makes you wonder if you would erase someone
Confuses you so much throughout
“Look Closer . . . ” – tagline really explains it all, that you must look closer as life isn’t always what it first appears.
You must look closer at everything.
Brilliant performances from all members of the cast, who work so well together.
How midlife crisis can go
You will never look at a plastic bag blowing in the wind in the same way again!
The Sound of Music
Feel good film you can sing along to and enjoy at any ages.
The love story, between Maria and the Captain.
This is the film I watch when I feel a little down or ill, as it makes me smile.
Julie Andrews being just amazing
The Dark Knight
Amazing performances and storyline
I saw it 3 times at the cinema (holding the record for most cinema viewings for a film)
The Joker & Batman
Thought provoking in the sense of terrorism
Amazing Batman installment
Million Dollar Baby
I tried to resist all temptation of including my favorite film in this list, but the pressure got to me and I decided to include it.
Amazing performances and a storyline which really got to me.
The score by Clint Eastwood is just brilliant
The trio of Swank/Eastwood/Freeman
Best Picture Oscar winner
As Good As It Gets
Jack Nicholson at his very best in a best actor winning role.
Such a funny film with sarcastic and very witty humour used.
Helen Hunt in an Oscar-winning role
The dog - amazing in so many ways
The amazing lines Nicholson delivers
The ultimate tale of friendship lasting and how you get past disagreements and heartache.
“Wind Beneath My Wings”
Bette Midler putting in a believable and brilliant performance
Rocky Horror Picture Show
Yes I am very much part of the Rocky Horror fan club
This has to be one of the ultimate cult films.
Launched the Time Warp
Brilliance of Tim Curry in Drag
“Give yourself over to absolute pleasure”
Today’s quote is the last lines from a fantastic film . . . The Usual Suspects.
“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist. And like that, he’s gone.”
What if Santa Claus had an older brother who was pretty jealous of his every move and had to move to the North Pole right before Christmas?
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.
Jim Sturgess is quickly becoming an actor I think will go onto great things and become a favorite of mine. That maybe quite a bold statement after seeing him in two movies “21″ and “Across the Universe” but he really has blown me away in both films. With two totally different performances, and of course Kevin Spacey is in this too. He is his usual brilliant self.
With being a huge fan of Kevin Spacey I am still really looking forward to this movie. Been looking at somethings about it today and came across some pictures.
I really do think this is going to be another great Spacey performance !!!
I think Kevin would be a fantastic Bond villian as he really is a great actor, one of my favorites, and to see him in the same movie as Daniel Craig would be great.
Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey is urging James Bond bosses to consider him for a role in the next movie – because he has always dreamed of playing a 7 Things villain.
The Oscar winner played legendary comic book bad guy Lex Luthor in 2006′s Superman Returns, and he now has set his sights on a role opposite Daniel Craig in the follow up to last year’s Quantum of Solace.
Spacey insists playing an arch enemy of the suave secret agent is high on his list of priorities.
He says, “I would love to play the villain in Bond, but they haven’t called yet.”
I posted the poster for “Shrink” last week, so now here is the trailer !!! I think it looks really good, but yes I am biased because I love Kevin so much.
I am very excited, a new Kevin Spacey movie. That you just know he is going to be brilliant in. So here is the poster:
I had not even heard of this before I saw the poster BUT Kevin Spacey is in it !!!
I think Kevin would be fantastic as Oscar host !!!
Kevin Spacey is considering starting an Internet campaign to land the job of hosting the 2010 Academy Awards.
The actor has a great relationship with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, having scooped statuettes for The Usual Suspects and American Beauty, and now he wants to take over from fellow actor Hugh Jackman as the host of the 82nd Awards.
Spacey says. “I’d love to host the Oscars. We can start a campaign on Twitter right now.”
I think this is really interesting to see what different actors do to prepare for a role. Plus I love Kevin Spacey a lot !!!
Actor Kevin Spacey visited a federal prison in Maryland on Monday to meet with disgraced Washington, D.C. lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
The two-time Oscar winner is preparing to play Abramoff in a new movie.
Con man Abramoff is serving time behind bars for his part in an influence-peddling scandal in the heart of American politics.
The 50-year-old businessman is scheduled to be released at the end of 2011.
He pleaded guilty to three criminal felony counts in a Washington, D.C., federal court in January, 2006.
Abramoff was charged in the defrauding of American Indian tribes and corruption of public officials.
Today’s picture is from my favorite scene in American Beauty.
Seeing clips from previous Oscar winners the other night, inspired me to look at my favorite actors/actresses winning an Oscar. So decided to start with Julia. I just love how emotional she gets it fantastic, and how she shhhh’s the orchestra. “I may never be up here again”. I really hope she does get up there again. I also love how Kevin Spacey presents the award, another favorite.
… look closer
5 Oscars: Best Picture. Best Actor Kevin Spacey. Best Director Sam Mendes. Best Original Screenplay. Best Cinematography.
Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey) is a depressed suburban father who is suffering from a mid-life crisis. His wife Carolyn (Annette Benning) can’t stand him and his daughter Jane (Thora Birch) thinks he is a loser. Lester begins to have an infatuation with Angela (Mena Survai), Jane’s friend. This causes Jane to “hate” her father even more.
As the Oscars are in a week. I decided to look through my collection of DVDs and see which are Best Picture winners or have an acting Oscar associated with them. So I will try to review a lot of them over the next week. Re-watch and some of them even watch for the first time. As looking at a couple of them I haven’t actually watched them yet.
