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.

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!

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?
