Kevin Bacon

Kevin Bacon

I was flipping through channels last night and I came upon this HBO movie, Taking Chance, which starred Kevin Bacon.  I learn later on that he won a Golden Globe for this performance, and deservedly so.  It’s the most subtle yet moving performance from an actor that I’ve seen in years!  Kevin just did the role with so much dignity and respect for everyone involved in it, especially that as the movie unrolled, we learn that Chance is actually the name of the soldier Kevin’s character was taking home.

On one side, the story is tragic since behind its premise, the life of a promising young man who as yet, has still more to offer the world, has been snuffed out.  On the other hand, I am amazed, even shocked, by the outpouring and support Kevin’s character gets from everyone around him, when they know what he is doing. It is actually very moving.  It’s all there in those little scenes with all these ordinary people paying respects.  And you know this scene is multiplied many times since there have been many casualties of war for THAT war.

Nothing in the movie is trivialized that’s why it works.  The patriotism can sometimes get to me knowing how very patriotic Americans are but I can’t blame them.  A fallen son is hard to fathom as it is, but to die for the country is an even greater sacrifice.

Jason Bourne

Jason Bourne

I know after all those Jason Bourne franchises, it’s a little bit difficult to wean Matt Damon away from a role that has defined him the past few years.  And to think we were introduced to him in Good Will Hunting!  He has become a little portly in this movie, which is ok, since he’s supposed to be a politician, but I don’t think I’d buy the 24 years old idea.  Maybe 30.  But still, he’s hot for his age!  He does a little bit of that Jason Bourne stuff here, running and more running in stairs, stadiums, even the Statue of Liberty!  And you do need a character actor to make this movie work, because we have to feel his pain.  Otherwise, who cares what happens to this guy’s life?

Jamie Bell ‘The Eagle’

Jamie Bell ‘The Eagle’

I can’t believe it has been eleven years since Jamie Bell has burst into the scene with Billy Elliott!  Now, at the age of 25, he looks as hot as ever, especially in the movie ‘The Eagle’ which I saw tonight.  In the first scene alone, you could see how hard he’s worked to achieve that BODY!

I admit I was one of those in the audience who was turned on by the idea of him being the slave of the character of Channing Tatum – who he himself was uber-HOT in this movie!  In my imagination, I was already thinking that Channing kisses Jamie.  Channing plays a Roman cenutrion while Jamie was the slave Channing saved from death in a gladiator match.  So Jamie owes Channing his life, in the movie.

If Jamie Bell were my slave (you will know in the movie why he becomes such), oh my, he’ll be very tired always……..
