The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

4 Oct

I simply love this movie. That’s why I chose this movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” as my first post. General This movie is start from a old lady laying in a hospital bed talking about there was a clock maker named Mr. Cake, made a giant clock which running backwards. And that’s how this beautiful amazing love story beginning. 捕获1 Benjamin Button, just like that giant clock, living backwards. He was born like “a man well in his 80s on his way to the grave.” Benjamin met his young lady Daisy at her beautiful innocent age. They hide under the table. Just exactly like other young couples. But still somehow looks weird from his wrinkles covered face, and her pretty face. While I’m watching this movie I can not stop thinking what should I do when I was still a young child have to say goodbye forever to my friends who I may not seen anymore. But this how Benjamin spent his childhood with old people’s dying, and growing up. Life is beautiful with loved ones. Benjamin is God’s miracle, just like what his mama said.  After he left his “home”. He joint the boat, met lots of different people, and listened to their own stories. He heard nothing from his young lady Daisy. But life still going on. “You’ll never know what’s coming for you” I like the part when Benjamin talked about “it’s a funny thing to come to home,” everything is stay the same, but the only thing changed is you. He is much younger than he used to be. But still too old for his real age. The good thing is Daisy is back. 捕获2 They talk and dance all night long. To one point I wish this is how this movie ends. Let’s the beautiful love stay how it supposed to be. But this is movie. Benjamin met his father, and Daisy, got car accident. She can not dance anymore. With his beautiful face, Benjamin told her he would take her home. She refused. She said, “I don’t want to be with you. Just stay out of my life.” Like every love story, couples don’t want the loved ones seen their miserable. But this is the real harm for both of them. But finally, She came back. 捕获3 While Daisy is crying for getting old, Benjamin’s face just looks perfect. God made a joke on both of them. “We’re meeting in the middle”, “we finally caught up with each other.” They got a baby girl. And Benjamin realized that their young girl need someone to grow old with. He left. The next time Daisy saw him, he was already a twenty-something young guy, and she married a widower.  She took care or him, and watching him from a young kid sitting on the roof to an infant who forgot how to walk. Benjamin died in his love’s arm. With the storm hitting the window. The beautiful miracle love story end. Actor Brad Pitt is handsome as always, even his face covered with wrinkles. His work in this movie just normal. Nothing too much to comment. Cate Blanchett is amazing. She use her own way to describe a woman’s whole life. From pretty innocent young kid to a beautiful young lady, to a mother and an old grace lady. I can see my life track from her act. All-in-all I love this movie, the curious case of Benjamin Button, just like a journey for all the audiences. I can experience a totally different lifestyle from this movie. And feel how this miracle brought to this couple. I still remember I ask my three years younger boyfriend while we were watching this movie together, if wrinkles covered my face, will you still love me? However, this is not only about Benjamin, it about everyone in this movie. Just like how it ends, some have an ear for music, some are artists, some swim, some are mothers.

Fight Club

4 Oct

“That old thing, how you always hurt the one you love. Well, it works both ways.”

Edward Norton plays the noname, who have suffered from insomnia for long time, his doctor refused to give him any medicine and advises him to join a support group where he met the “big boobs Bob”. This no name gut start to addicted to attending support groups, until he found out that he is not alone. Marla Singer, showed up in his life. During a flight home, no name guy met Tyler Durden, and he have to call him after he found out his apartment blew out and he has no place to go. This is how this movie and how fight club beginning.

捕获

After the first fight outside the bar, Mr. Noname moved to Tyler’s dilapidated house. They have fight over and over until it become the “fight club” where brunch of men will meet up in a bar’s basement. It is a routine opportunity to fight with others.

“Gentlemen, welcome to the Fight Club. The first rule of fight club is you do not talk about fight club.”

Thing between Marla, Mr. Nomane, and Tyler became more and more complicate. She have sex with one and then another. She seems weird and both of two guys’ friendship seems changed after this girl and all those changes happened among fight club. Mr. Noname tried to shut down the project which started by Tyler and fight club. But he found out he can do nothing, and everything is under Tyler’s control. Until they fight for the last time, and Mr. Noname realized that Tyler is just exactly himself and he is Tyler. He shot himself in the face, and “killed” Tyler.

捕获1

“Most people…normal people…do just about anything to avoid a fight.”

Edward did awesome job in this movie, or you could say Edward Norton is really good at being a psycho. He can be as innocent as a young teenager, or being a super creepy weirdo. About Brad Pitt, he just act out how wild or crazy he is.

This movie is kind of arouse my feeling about have a fight with someone. I always  wrestling with my boyfriend, but since he is much bigger and stronger than me, been defeated feels terrible. Anyways, this movie give other people’s a feeling that they can not just simply suck everything up, they need to learn how to say no, or at least find a good way to let temper go, maybe not fight with some random people, since this is just a movie.

I like it a lot though.

Kill Bill

4 Oct

Blood, gore, and more gore. Kill Bill: the perfect story of sweet revenge. The Bride shows no form of compassion, relent, or mercy to those she kills. From what started as a ruthless attempt on her life by her former boss and associates, she tracks down and destroys them all, one by one. The ultimate goal? Simple. Kill Bill, the mastermind behind her attempted murder. In the end, Kill Bill reminds us all that revenge is a dish best served cold.

Kill-Bill-References-In-Video-1

The director Quentin Tarantino has his own reputation as violence and classic quotes. Because in each of his movies, he kinda push the envelope, he gave the audience an expectation that his movie should be good and gore. Like in Pulp Fiction, there’s a sense of gay rape which you have never heard about. At the time of violent, there still have good theme or story behind it.

If you are a gore movie fun, you definitely have watch Quentin Tarantino‘s movie before. Also his foul dialogues are as famous as his gore.

Pulp Fiction

“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee.”

Kill Bill

“Revenge is never a straight line. It’s a forest, And like a forest it’s easy to lose your way… To get lost… To forget where you came in.”

Wall Street (1987)

3 Oct

This is a good business-related movie.

Plot

Gekko manipulates the market using inside information and his motto best describes his approach: greed is good. Nothing will stop him from pursuing a good deal and he takes advantage of Bud’s burning to desire to succeed. Soon, Bud finds himself getting information from any source and using to gain an advantage. It all comes to a head however when Gekko targets Blue Star airlines, the company where Bud’s father has worked for 24 years, secretly planning to break it up and plunder the employees’ retirement fund. Written by garykmcd

Honestly, I don’t like this movie. The reason why I still chose to post this one was because one of my friend highly recommend this movie. In his word, this movie, Wall Street, will never been forget by time. He said, this movie teach him what is the real world and how cruel it is. Money is not everything, but is the thing that can make you get anything you want, and lose everything you cherished. There is not short cut to become success.

Charlie Sheen Wall Street 1 Brokerage Firm in the 80s

This is a good movie for young people who are facing the question of how to be success. They can find themselves in Wall Street. Also, this movie can be a good alarm for those people who want to get rich easily.

Silent Hill

3 Oct

I do not watch too much horror movie, but this one is the only one I like.

Silent Hill this movie, is based on the same name successful video game.

plot

“After the continuous sleep walking episodes of Sharon, the young daughter of Rose Da Silva, the decision is made to take Sharon to the place only mentioned in her restless dreams- Silent Hill. However, the road to Silent Hill is anything but easy to access, and Rose creates a high speed chase between herself and a police officer only to end in a crash for them both. When she wakes up, Sharon has disappeared and Rose is at the entrance to the deserted, dream-like town of Silent Hill. As Rose begins the search for her daughter, she does not realize the terror and mystery surrounding her. Rose is led on a blind search for her beloved daughter, finding herself getting more and more entwined into disturbing past of Silent Hill.” Written by Conquerer

silent hill

This is a bloody movie which full of broken arms, and injuries. If you never seen this kind of movie before, you may feel a little bit uncomfortable with this. However, despite the blood and violence, the theme and the whole story of this movie, is what really attract me, and make me like it.

First of all, this movie is mainly about how a mother trying to find her adopted daughter, and bring her back, no matter what. She overcame almost everything on the way she heading silent hill, and in the silent hill. As a human being, she has her own fear about dark and die, but all these mean nothing compared to her daughter. About the police officer in the movie, she answered her duty till the last minute before she died. The most impression that this movie gave to me, is silent hill is highlight the power and the abilities of  female. And males in this movie seems more coward. They chose to stay in their own home, and stay away from all kinds of dangerous.

As a horror movie, silent hill still has it touching part. At the end of the whole movie, the mom and the daughter went home together. Even in the same place at the same time, the family still can not be reunion. This part make me feel sad. I can not imagine what I will do if I were in the same position; you can feel everything is the same, but you can not resist the feeling of lonely.

All-in-all

If you want to find some movie to make your heart beat go faster, Silent Hill will be a good choice for you.

Avengers

3 Oct

Plot
The avengers is a unique movie, because all these heroes from Marvels since maybe past 5 years, for example, iron man, hulk, Captain America, etc. But what we have in this movie? We have all these guys in one movie. What truly make it unique is that all these theme actors, those famous actors, they all come together for this single movie which makes it has great cast.
To some people who may do not like bunch of super heroes in one movie, Marvels also found a solution for this group people, they use the same actors and made their own movie which make Avengers even more awesome. Just like a TV Show which has the best quality ever. Like after each one somehow survived the world, not they formed into a super league, to defeat their same enemy Loki.

avengers_background_10_0
Also Avengers is a killer movie which has good story and to the end it comes out the best. It is hard to have get such a good story from this long story line. Since as the sense goes, all these superheroes cannot get along with each other which give the bad guy, Loki, a good chance to depart this group. After the agent died, they realized against each other is not the way to solve the problem, so they start to fight like a team and watch each other’s back.

The-Avengers-2012-upcoming-movies-29945616-1280-1024
About the iron man, Tony Stark is a man full of arrogant characteristic, for a long time, other avengers cannot go along with Tony Stark, especially Captain America who is the symbol of virtual, and loyal, justice. For the whole time, the avengers are trying to work as a group, but the iron man is seems doing something by his own which cause lots of tension for the group. However, iron man does came around, and at the end, the iron man or Tony Stark save the world by taking the nuclear missile into out space. He shifted from the self-absorb character, this “all about me” person into a self-sacrifice hero. Iron man gave me the feeling that he is one of the key part or major characteristic of this movie.

avengers-wyndham3
Aside from the superheroes, this movie still have good theme to it. What we can get from this movie is not only about how important group working is for normal people or superheroes, but more about self-accomplishment. And overall, avengers is a pretty clean movie, which do not have too much blood or violence in it. You can take your kids to see it.

R.I.P.D.

3 Oct

Boston Police Department Detectives Nick Walker and Bobby Hayes stole a chest full of gold found during a drug bust, and Nick buries his share of the gold in his backyard, intending to use it to create a better life for himself and his wife, Julia. However, he regrets his decision and informs Hayes he intends to return the gold. Later, during a raid on a warehouse, Nick and Hayes get into a shootout with criminals, and Hayes kills Nick to prevent him from returning the gold, framing one of the criminals for the murder.

While ascending through a tunnel in the sky to the afterlife, Nick is pulled into the office of Mildred Proctor, director of the Boston division of the Rest In Peace Department (R.I.P.D.), an agency that recruits deceased police officers to patrol the afterlife and capture “Deados”, spirits that failed to cross over and return to Earth as monstrous ghosts. Nick agrees to join the R.I.P.D. after Proctor explains that it would stave off a potentially negativefinal judgment for at least a century, and meets his new partner, Roy Pulsipher, an ex-U.S. Marshal who lived in the 1800s.

Nick and Roy return to Earth to attend Nick’s funeral, where Nick learns R.I.P.D. officers are assigned avatars, which is how humans perceive them. Nick’s is an elderly Chinese man, Jerry Chen and Roy’s is an attractive Russian woman, Opal Pavlenko. After failing to communicate with Julia, Nick accompanies Roy to the apartment of a suspect, Stanley Nawlicki, who tries to escape and is killed by the duo. Pieces of gold identical to the ones Nick stole are found in Nawlicki’s possessions and logged into evidence.

Nick and Roy then meet with Elliot, a dealer set to make an exchange with someone, revealed to be Hayes. Nick and Roy follow him to Nick’s house, where Hayes retrieves Nick’s share of the gold, leading Julia to believe Nick was corrupt. From there, the duo tails Hayes to an abandoned warehouse where he gives the gold to a Deado, Pulaski, who escapes and causes enough destruction due to Nick and Roy’s intervention that it makes national news. Proctor, infuriated, takes them off the case, but they decide to continue the investigation on their own after learning the pieces of golds are components of the Staff of Jericho, a mystic device that could reverse the tunnel that transports the dead into the afterlife, returning them to Earth.

Nick and Roy visit Hayes, who quickly finds out who they are and reveals himself to be a Deado. He is arrested and brought to the R.I.P.D. headquarters, where he and other Deados manage to escape after stealing the components of the Staff of Jericho and return to Earth. While the Deados assemble the Staff of Jericho, Hayes kidnaps Julia to use her as a human sacrifice to open the portal. Nick and Roy arrive and after killing the Deados, including Pulaski, Nick goes to save Julia while Roy destroys the Staff of Jericho and saves the city. Although Nick manages to kill Hayes, Julia succumbs to her wounds and she and Nick share a tearful goodbye.

Julia is revived in the hospital and begins recovery, granted a second chance by Proctor as a favor to Nick. She also reinstates Nick and Roy into the agency, in addition to providing Nick with a new avatar, which is soon revealed to be a 10-year-old girl scout, much to Nick’s disappointment. Nick and Roy then get into their car and drive away.
