Bumping this thread since we're entering awards season, and the critically acclaimed films are now upon us.
For the first time in years, I saw two movies in two days: Black Swan and The King's Speech.
Black Swan is a haunting movie, one of those films that you'll still ponder the day after you see it. Naturally, if you love ballet, you'll enjoy all the dance scenes, and Natalie Portman should take the big statue this year for her incredible performance.
I also loved the direction, the way the camera followed Natalie Portman around, and the Hitchcock-type plot, which had tons of twists and turns. I do believe it requires more than one viewing to resolve all the questions still spinning around in my head. Go see it and enjoy.
The King's Speech was a wonderful movie dealing with King George VI's speech problems, and the therapist who helped him. Colin Firth will be a strong contender for the Oscar - if I were him, I'd dust off his shelf. His reactions are so heartfelt, you can't help feeling your heartstrings pulling for his situation. Geoffrey Rush is brilliant as the therapist, and the climax scene in a tight space of a room where King George addresses Great Britain on the radio to declare war with Germany (and Lionel -Geoffrey Rush - coaches him throughout) is a master class in great camera shots as well as superb acting. Bravo, gentlemen!
So two completely different films, both well worth seeing.
Anyone else seen anything worth mentioning?
Oh, fish-like Lady
I don't think so Bro, she's a Lady, Lady, Lady, Lady
No, no, she's a fish that's just a little bit
