♫ 林国伟 - 爱情独秀
I was really bored today so I decided to catch up on some good movies that I'd been meaning to watch since last year. In the afternoon, I watched "Anonymous" and I can now say that it has been included in my list of favourite movies. I mean, I was already hooked when I first saw the trailer (but then again, that's what movie trailers do, right?) and promised myself I would go watch it in cinemas, but sadly, it never showed.
Just that single sentence, and I was immediately intrigued by the movie's storyline. Ah, the power of words."But what if I told you, Shakespeare never wrote a single word?"
I truly enjoyed this movie, because it thoroughly suspends your belief of the world's greatest playwright, and makes you think, "What if all this were true?". I loved the character of the Earl of Oxford, because he is the central character of the story, the character who is directly and indirectly the source of all the events in the story. In fact, it seemed so real that I was almost convinced.. Until the credits came up and I remembered I was watching a work of fiction, that is. Still, it makes you think, makes you wonder, long after the credits have stopped rolling. That, to me, is the sign of a wonderful movie.
Just a short while ago, I finished watching "In Time" and the line that really got to me was this:
For a few to be immortal, many must die.
What happens if time becomes everything in our world?
How would you waste, or rather, spend your time then?
I must admit, I like the concept of the whole story, but the movie itself was kind of... choppy, like they hurried the storyline a bit too much, and everything seems to happen all at once without the proper transitions. Or maybe it's just me. =/ Also, I couldn't seem to take my mind off of one thing throughout the whole movie: How many pairs of 4-inch heels can Sylvia Weis (Amanda Seyfried) change while on the run, and how does she run in them anyway?
|And, well, Cillian Murphy is kinda hot.|
|What if you only had 5 minutes left to live?|
Have you watched any of these 2 movies? What did you think of them?
