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”.

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.
