Must Seen Movies ?

I pass by a movie store today and there were two movie posters side by side at the door … My eyes went like this …

And I stayed like this for a little while …

Just by the cover, those movies became must seen ones for me! I didn’t see them yet then. But I knew I will like them. For sure, they will have great storyline, with great directing. And no wonder the visual effects would be terrific. But that wouldn’t be the real reason I would watch those movies … those movies were : “Captain America : The First Avenger” 2011, and  “Green Lantern” 2011

No, no! it’s not because they are both superheros . Can’t you see yet why ??

… how about this ?

Now you begin to understand …

And add this …

Incredible !!!! I kown !!  that’s why those movies are must seen ones!

FYI, Ryan Reynolds (“Buried” 2010, “The Proposal” 2009) was “The Sexiest Man Alive 2010” by the Magazine People . Don’t ask me about 2011 , it’s not yet revealed! and yeah! he is damn hot!

About Chris Evans (Fantastic Four” 2005, “The Losers” 2010), I give him a two thumbs up for his extraordinary body change for his role . See for yourself …

Let’s look closer to this transformation ….

Before - After

This reminds me Tom Hanks in “Cast Away” 2000 by the talented Oscar winner  and one of my favorite Director: Robert Zemeckis (“Back to the future” series 1985-1989-1990,  “Death Become her” 1992 with Bruce Willis – Meryl Streep, “Forrest Gump“1994, “Contact” 1997 with Jodie Foster)

He lost 40 pounds (18,14 kg) during the movie, and he was nominated for an Oscar for his performance!

Disappointment

Lately, I was so exicted to discover the new M. Night Shyamalan movie : “The Last Airbender” .

M. Night Shyamalan is a master in mixing science fiction with suspens. He was twice nominated for the Oscar for “The Sixth Sense” 1999 (Bruce Willis, Haley Joel Osment) as the Best Director and the Best Writting. I will always remember  my fear while watching “Signs” (2002) with Mel Gibson, my terror while watching “The Village” (2004) with Joaquin Phoenix and my shock seeing people kill themselves in “The Happening” (2008) with Mark Wahlberg. This latter had already some bad critics due to the light acting and the simple, almost stupid, script they had to play.   

The Last Airbender” is completely a different kind.  Visual effect are well done, acting … let’s say so-so …  I wasn’t convinced at all, but the scenario … he completely missed it. It is a movie for kids, or worst a pop movie : no suspens, no mystery and so predictable. And what makes it more disappointed, they made the movie in order to expect a serie. So, not only we already had a bad scenario, but there were no ending…

Actually, “The Last Airbender” , is the remake of a famous series “Avatar“.

Avatar - The Last Airbender

Even, the Avatar fans though it was a disaster because in one hand, so many parts of the series were swallowed that we, simple viewers wouldn’t understand the important of the issues … or just wouldn’t understand anything. In one another hand, M. Night Shyamalan wasn’t faithful to the series. Just an example : 3 main characters (Prince Zuko, Katara, Sokka) were asiatic in the series, in the movie they became white people (Dev Patel from “Slumdog millionaire” , Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone) …

Who's who

Anyway, my disappointment comes mainly from the ” M. Night Shyamalan movie” part. This is not what I expected from him. Without that part, this movie wouldn’t be that “bad” after all …

 QUOTES :

Katara: My name is Katara. And I’m the only Waterbender left in the Southern Water Tribe.

More like “I’m Pink Power Ranger”  …

Gran Gran: He will begin to change hearts, and it is in the heart that all wars are won.

 

Fact and Fiction

I have to agree that movies tend to be dramatical sometimes, almost like soap opera. They extend an event, a fact that might be not that terrible, into a dramatic giant conspiracy. They may not have great success at the Box Office or in movie Critics, but for sure, it’s annoying ! I guess that’s the purpose : make people think!  Yesterday, I watched “The Fourth kind”.

The Fouth Kind

I can’t help wondering, can it be possible? Not the way they presented it. But, is it possible that there is someone or something bigger than us? far smarter than us, studying us like if we are rats lab?  After all, there are many events that us, simple human beings can not explain…

QUOTES – Introduction :

I’m actress Milla Jovovich, and I will be portraying Dr. Abigail Tyler in The Fourth Kind. This film is a dramatization of events that occurred October 1st through the 9th of 2000, in the Northern Alaskan town of Nome. To better explain the events of this story, the director has included actual archived footage throughout the film. This footage was acquired from Nome psychologist Dr. Abigail Tyler, who has personally documented over 65 hours of video and audio materials during the time of the incidents. To better protect their privacy, we have changed the names and professions of many of the people involved. Every dramatized scene in this movie is supported by either archived audio, video or as it was related by Dr. Tyler during extensive interviews with the director. In the end, what you believe is yours to decide. Please be advised, that some of what you’re about to see is extremely disturbing.

Little expalnation :

Abbey Tyler: An encounter in the first kind, that’s when you see a UFO. The second kind is when you see evidence of it: crop circles, radiation. The third kind is when you make contact. But the fourth kind, there’s nothing more frightening than the fourth. You see, that one is when they abduct you.
