127 Hours is Visually Stunning yet it will make your stomach churn!

127 Hours is Visually Stunning yet it

will make your stomach churn!

I am not surprised that the Oscar voters chose this film as one of the best of 2010!  It is visually stunning and the soundtrack is fantastic!  Action in half of the movie just happens in one place but I never got bored or felt claustrophobic about it.  Simon Beaufoy and Danny Boyle are very skillfull storytellers and I’m sure the book version of this would be more serious and plodding, but this movie is definitely not. It just moves the story along and allows the viewers like me to reach a denouement and realization in the end.  Finding out how Aron Ralston moves from being this kind of person to another type of person is fasinating to watch.  That scene where he kept saying, ‘This rock was waiting for me my whole life, the moment I started life on earth’…..really shook me.  It made me reflect on my own life too.

Anyhow, I didn’t know that the last 10 minutes of the movie was going to be bloody! I was really squirming in my seat.  I did try to cover my eyes with the towel I brought, but it made things worse since I could hear James Franco and my imagination was giving me all these gory images!

Well, that part of the story is probably the most provoking but also the most liberating, at least for Aron Ralston.  His will to live under such very difficult circumstances is incredible!  He certainly lived life dangerously but at least he is living it under his own terms.

Tron: Legacy Dazzles

Tron: Legacy Dazzles

I don’t really go for sci-fi movies much, but I was delighted with what I saw in Tron: Legacy movie today!  I actually enjoyed it a lot!  Dazzling is just one of the things I find it to be.  The production design is impressive and the costume and make-up, though not ground-breaking, was just enough to convey to us that this was the world of digital gaming and this was their world.  I just found the movie a tad long, maybe they could’ve lopped of 20 minutes of it to make it tighter and keep everything going, but still, there are many scenes there that I did not see in the trailer – which really made me sit up and watch.  As usual, like any father-son dichotomy, I am all ears and a bit emotional with those scenes up on the big screen, and it’s great that they got a respected character actor in Jeff Bridges to play the lead title role.  I love the action sequences and the costumes and yeah, the music is perfect!  No wonder the soundtrack of this movie is already in the US Top 10!

Al Pacino Jack: Best Actor

Al Pacino Jack: Best Actor

Al Pacino wins for his role as Dr. Death, Jack Kevorkian in the made-for-TV movie, You Don’t Know Jack.  This movie hasn’t reached our local HBO yet but it really sounds like an interesing movie to watch since Dr. Kevorkian was such an interesting character.  No surprise there that Al Pacino gets the nod for this role.  He always brings his A-game especially when the project is as intriguing and unique as this one.
