Last Century Film – Moonstruck

1 Sep

Life is simple and not so complicated, the moment you realize that love is not an option and companionship is an easy way out, you are basically done for.

Thanks to destiny and everything against a boring, dull life, we can be saved by Nicolas Cage, sorry… by just letting yourself go. moonstruck

Moonstruck is a very nice oldie were we get to see Cher win her Oscar. We also get a pretty good picture of how we over-think things and tend to complicate our lives in the most unbelievable ways.

We are all full with a bunch of stories in our heads, but it is the full moon that shows up once in a while covering our city with the most insane light, the one with the power to let us do whatever we want, (if you ever needed a reason to stop your drama, here you go, blame it on the moon).

It is a quick, no fuss film with very good performances and very consistent comedic vibe.

Give it a try, hard to be disappointed when you just want to relax and have a good time!

Invictus Movie Review

1 May

I know must of you have seen Invictus by now,  to tell you the truth I just did a couple of minutes ago and had to rush to write my review.

Ask yourself what can you do for yourself!

Ask yourself what can you do for yourself!

And I was lost for words for a while, could not even begin, but then I remembered a fantastic thing said to me by that voice in my head (Morgan Freeman): “forgiveness is a powerful weapon”.

Because it was the reason of the film, fighting with one word, teaching all of us how to forgive those who have hurt us; the hard way but the effective way to look past the mistakes of others and find the good in them. Lets face it, holding a grudge takes us nowhere, and we need to achieve greatness right?

This is history, it cannot get better than this, you cannot touch reality in any other way other than re-telling it, and Clint Eastwood has done it, as with all his movies, he makes you feel sorry you were not there, part of it… you realize you were totally wasting your time while the world was happening, what were you doing… probably playing on your Nintendo or something!

These are the stories to tell, the motivation we need from time to time to grow and to love and be brave… and to go out and get in the mud and play anything, do anything you love doing, reach out and be awesome, to yourself first, then to others.

It has been a while since I have seen a film that leaves me in such good spirits, and as it was recommended to me by someone whose opinion I value, I recommend it to you today without hesitation.

Good movie.
