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...
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!
