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.

Mr. & Mrs. Smith

3 Oct

Mr. & Mrs. Smith is a good movie. I like it. And most of my friends like it. I think you are going to like it.

Click to play this theme music while you are reading this post.

 

The movie beginning with the Ms. and Mrs. Smith answering questions during marriage counseling. And the next beautiful sence is how they met each other and how their love story beginning in Colombia with this music as background.

捕获

 

In general, this movie is about how an assassins fake married couple tried to kill each other until they find out they still love each other.  Yeah, I know, it sounds funny, and actually, this is a good funny movie. They talk about fake daily work, eat fake homemade dinner, they praise on each other’s taste of art, have real sex. They ruined their own house, tried to kill each other in a fancy restaurant. I believe all the couples have those time want to “kill” each other, but this Smith couple, they do it in the action which is awesome. I still remember when Brad Pitt said “I love my wife, I want her to be happy, I want good things for her, but there are times (I really want to kill her).” my boyfriend said “me too” and I said “same here”. Don’t laugh, you are the same.

I love the part they realized they still love each other just like when they first met while they tore their own house apart and then have sex over the broken glass and furniture. It give me feeling that people are not going to cherish each other until they lose them. For the whole movie, the assassins part just like dressing for the special love story, and make it funny.

About the actors

I like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt a lot, they both are super hot and have the most sexy lips ever in the world. They are really eye-catching couple. I hope their love can last longer and longer no matter what happen to them. Also, they are good actors, all the characters they get, they can make it alive and more interesting.

Blue Valentine

1 Oct

“Marriage is Love’s gravestone”

I used to doubt this until I watched this movie “Blue Valentine”

Warning, if you are in love and you want to marry him or her. Do not watch this movie.

This movie is sad but good. It is talking about a collapsing marriage. How a couple from lovebirds turned into strangers.

I don’t want to talk too details about the whole story. I want to leave it for you to watch it, because it worth it.

It is hard to make movie about marriage, since it is so complicate and everyone’s marriage is different. But the director Derek Cianfrance found the only common thing about marriage is the fade of love. The best part I love about this movie is it use a comparison between dating and marriage. The differences are so harsh, it not only hurts on the couple in the movie, but everyone who watching this “Blue Valentine”.

Blue-Valentine-Reviews1

Does love is really enough for daily life? The life you have tons of bills need to pay; you have a young girl need to take care of? The couple in the movie, they all approaches 30s, they are not as good looking as they used to be. He want to nothing except what he has, he only want to be a husband and father. But she is still charming even in her age, and she wants more. They tried to save their love, they went to a seedy hotel, they dance with their own song, tried to arouse the feeling of old time, but nothing happened. She chose work over her love which broken his heart.

Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams as the couple in the movie, they both gained 15 pounds for the contemporary part. Michelle Williams is amazing in the way she keeps trying to deny emotion and conceal emotion, even as she’s showing us. About Ryan Gosling, he used his own way to show us how a young man change into a middle aged married guy. He is despair and he is depressed. He want to save his marriage, he tried all he can do, but in a wrong way or too late.

Love should be permanent, and marriage is realistic.

I highly recommend this movie, but you may need to prepare some tissue.

The Great Gatsby

1 Oct

People said, this movie is all about American dream.

I never read the same name novel, but I like this movie.

Plot

New York,1929. Bond-seller Nick Carraway, in a sanitarium for depression and alcoholism, is persuaded by his doctor to write a therapeutic account of what put him there. Nick’s journal describes how,seven years earlier, he had moved to a tiny house on Long Island adjoining the sumptuous mansion owned by enigmatic neighbour, the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby. After attending one of Gatsby’s legendary parties Nick is asked by Gatsby to arrange a meeting with his cousin, Daisy, now married to the brutish and philandering Tom Buchanan, who was Gatsby’s true love, prior to war service. As Nick complies he comes to see that Gatsby, once a poor boy, has recreated himself as a fascinating millionaire purely to win Daisy back but the events of a drunken afternoon conspire to bring about an ending which is anything but happy. Written by don
