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!

So, if ever you have those movies, … well, … keep them! I’ll have mine! lol lol

No …  just kidding! Let’s enjoy the movies together!

Con men

Lately, I watched  “I love you Phillip Morris”.

I Love you Phillip Morris

People already told me  how fun and tricky it was, I couldn’t wait to see it by myself. My first knowledge about it was that Jim Carrey played a gay … I finally got to watch it … and it was surprisingly awesome!!!

The movie begins with, Steven Russell (Jim Carrey) laying on an hospital bed, and the first line is :

Steven Russell: Love sure is a funny thing. Makes you happy, makes you sad, makes you do all sorts of things you never thought you’d do before. In fact, love’s the reason I’m laying here dying.” 

It says a lot! Althouth, it is not just a romantic comedy, the movie is geniously bluffy, as well as the real story that it has been inspired on : Steven Russell and Phillip Morris exist for real. Their story as incredible as it is, exists as well .

Steven Jay Russell is now in jail (not for so long I guess … lol !).

Besides being gay, he has an IQ of 163 as well …  FYI ,

I.Q.


Jim Carrey
 (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, “The Majestic”) delivered one of his best performance, and along with him,  Ewan McGregor (“The Ghost Writer”, “The Island” ), as the cutie and sensitive boyfriend. But, I feel I have to warn you about some scenes, they are not explicitely shocking … but it is necessary to be open-minded. His maximum sentence date is to July 12, 2140. (Steven Russell: “Fucking Texas.” )

Another great movie had been inspired from life of incredible con man :

The three times Oscar Winner Director : Steven Spielberg‘s movie : “Catch me if you can “ (2002) (nominated for 2 Oscars)

Catch Me If You Can

With Leonardo DiCaprio (“Shutter Island”, “Inception“) and the twice Oscar Winner Tom Hanks (“Toys Story 3″, Charlie Wilson’s War”),  relating the life of the young, … very young Frank Abagnale Jr.

Leonardo DiCaprio - Frank Abagnale Jr.

In the 60’s, Frank Abagnale Jr. meticulously passed forged checks across 26 countries over the course of five years, beginning when he was only 16 years old. His story ended better than Steven Russell’s … instead of having a life sentence in jail, he worked for the U.S. Federal Government as consultant and lecturer, and he built his own company “Abagnale & Associates”, a financial fraud consultancy company.

There is a saying : “Necessity is mother of invention” . Steven Russell, in jail, needed to join his boyfriend, and Frank Abagnale … well, it was to reunite his family at first …  Funny how incredibly genius those men are, it is sad they are more known for their bad actions …

Quotes
