Good Movies...

Okay guys, time for some movie review! The first two ones are nominated for the Academy Awards this year, and I'm so happy to have seen them! :)

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Watched this last night and I'm absolutely loving it! (Well, except for the fact that there was disturbance by this annoying guy sitting in front of me... ==|||)
I'm pretty sure you already know what is the story about. It's a pretty unique story. The entire movie is like a flashback of the entire story, some with a sense of humour too. My personal favourite would be the part where Benjamin talks about how Daisy was hit by a taxi. If you are going to watch this movie, please pay attention to that particular part! It's just bloody cool! The whole movie is a bit too long (it's almost freaking 3 hours!), but it's not boring at all! Every second of the movie is interesting!
Well, I don't like Brad Pitt, ever since you-know-what... But to be honest, he was not too bad playing the role of Benjamin. Although... Not really fantastic. I actually think Sean Penn did better in Milk, which I'm going to write about next. But I really love Taraji P. Henson, who plays Benjamin's mother in the movie!
Everyone should watch this movie! :)
P/S: Okay, this middle-age uncle came and sat in front of me in the cinema. And during the entire movie, he talked to himself while everybody was looking at him like weird... For example, when one of the old guys in the movie told Benjamin about how he was strike by lightning seven times, he actually counted and said :"Five now, two more to go, hahahahaha..." ==||| And when Benjamin and Elizabeth went into the hotel room with a number 25, he said :"Yee Sap Ng, Hahahahahaha..." Duh??? What is so funny about 25? And that uncle langhed throughout almost the whole movie, even when there isn't anything so funny about it. His laughs was like "hahahahaha" or "hehehehehe"... Sounds like 变态! Everybody was starring at him in the cinema! Weird uncle...

Milk
I LOVE SEAN PENN!!!
He can act as a retarted father, etc... Now he acts as a gay politician! What else can he not act as and be good at it??? What else??? I just love him!!!
Okay, okay, be calm...
Milk is a based on a true story of a gay guy, Harvey Milk who was elected as a member of San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977. But he was later assassinated. Well, this is the kind of movie that once you watch, you know it's going to be nominated for some major awards. Although it's a bit boring, but I always love this kind of true story with some touching scenes. There are so many gay movies these days, but to find one touching one is not easy. This is definitely one of them. You know lar, a gay guy fights his way to get the trust from everybody in the 70s is really not easy. Along the way, Harvey actually sacrificed a lot...
Sean Penn is perfect in the movie! I cannot really believe my eyes! He can be so 'gay'! I hope he wins the Oscar again!!! Although... He is not really the favourite! But who knows??? Go Sean Penn!!! And I just found out Matt Damon was initially the actor chosen to play the role of Dan White!!! What a waste!!! Otherwise he would have gotten another Oscar nomination!!!

Now, plus Slumdog Millionaire, I've watched three of the five Oscar nominated Best Film award movies. I think it would be a little hard for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Milk might have a chance if the judges aren't those who refused to give the Best Film award to Brokeback Mountain. But personally, I think Slumdog Millionaire is the best!

爱的发声练习
这是一部我想看了很久的台湾电影,原因无他,就是因为有我很爱的帅哥张孝全啦!嘻嘻!
爱的发声练习其实是一部女人的电影,一部很艺术的女人电影。故事似乎有点戏剧化,但我看完了之后却暗自觉得很现实。一个女人在寂寞的时候开始了援交,结果爱上了一个有妇之夫的援交对象,然后跟他不停的纠缠,最后还在没有爱情的情况下怀孕。老实说,这一切根本不是不可能发生在任何一个女人的身上,包括我自己。所以,虽然故事有点没什么创意,但我还是喜欢的。看得出来制作团花了不少心思去找一些漂亮的场景、甚至家私,让整部电影看起来很漂亮、很舒服。
演员方面,我必须说,大S的演技真的很棒,虽然不够保持通话的那么好发挥。张孝全一个25、6岁的人要诠释一个中年男人的角色的确有点勉强,不过他一直以来都是我认为好戏的演员,所以,虽然样子有点勉强,但演技还是有的,还是有那种中年男人的态度!彭于晏也慢慢的从偶像的演技凑出来了,表现可圈可点。另外一位男演员东明相虽然戏份不多,但至少扮演的角色好发挥,也很不错。
总合来说,我觉得这部是女性会很喜欢的一部电影。

另外,我也看过了囧男孩,觉得还好而已。不过梅芳阿姨的角色和我们黎明阿姨在钱不够用2里的角色相似度达70%吧?而且演得也的确很自然。金马奖被梅芳阿姨夺去了,我只能说,人家有主场优势啊!还有证人,整部电影的故事还不算特别,但最后的link我才整个觉得超棒的!又是一部很smart的电影!我也真的很希望张家辉能在金像奖勇夺男主角奖!:)
