For me a new movie with Logan Lerman in one of the leading roles is something that always gets me excited! The movie that is coming out this summer is Indignation. In the Netherlands there isn’t much revealed about if and when the movie will hit the cinemas. But if it doesn’t come out here in the cinemas, we can always find another way to watch it ;-). So, when the trailer came out my sister and I where very happy! I think Logan Lerman will fit his character perfectly. I have no idea though what to expect of the storyline. Will it be more romantic or more dramatic? Nevertheless, I am pretty sure it will be an interesting one!
Today I watched Revolutionary Road. I watched it a couple of times before, as I always do when I think a movie is good. Yesterday I came across the trailer and it really put me in the mood to watch the whole movie again. So today I did.
Revolutionary Road is a movie by Sam Mendes starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio. The first time I watched it, the Kate and Leo combination itself was reason enough for me to watch it, but let me tell you this, this is nothing like the Titanic love story. Just the trailer it self is already a masterpiece if you ask me. Really powerfull.
The movie is about April and Frank and is set in ’55. You see how they met and how they are dealing with their suburban life right now. They used to be people who didn’t want this standard life where you will get so lost in, you don’t even recognize yourself antmore. I think it is a very interesting story line. You will get to see both perspectives of April and Frank and how they got to be where they are. I think it’s a very realistic storyline. It’s not about two people falling in love, but about their lives 10-15 years later. The acting was absolutely amazing as well. If you haven’t watched it yet, I would definitely like to recommend you to do so.
Yesterday I watched Perfect Sense. Up front I didn’t really know what the movie was about. I just wanted to see something new. And hopefully good. And I can tell you, it was interesting. Kind of weird though. Let me tell you a little about the storyline..
The movie is about a chef, Michael, and an epidemiologist, Susan. He works close to her home and that is how they meet. At first everything seems normal, but then you will find out that everything isn’t that normal. There is some kind of disease going on. Everyone is slowely losing their senses, step by step, and nobody really knows how and why. You will see how Susan and Michael cope and evolve around these events. How it tears them apart and brings them closer to eachother.
I personally thought the instrumental music was breathtaking and really added something important to the movie, even as the parts of Michael and Susan together. Eva Green and Ewan McGregor did a great job. The parts that were a bit weird to me, were the parts where you saw the rest of the world going crazy. Of course, an important part of the movie, but to me that was kind of scary and weird. Nevertheless, it was very interesting.
So if you are in for some drama and romance, you could try this one. For me it would have been better if they filmed the Sci-Fi parts a little bit different from the way they did, but apart from that, it’s pretty unique. See for yourself and let me know what your thoughts are on the movie.. Here is one of my favorite scenes: the ending (spoiler).
