I love The King’s Speech. You often don’t find a historical ‘bromance’ film that doesn’t gross you out. The King’s Speech is fresh and funny. There’s something that the movie never point’s out. In spite of his Stuttering, King George VI also had autism. George VI had a shield of love within his wife and daughters. The greatest friend that ever came into his life was his teacher Lionel Louge.
The movie captures so much in Colin Flint and Geoffrey Rush as the student-teacher/best friends as they break down walls and the house. They shine at the end of the movie when England is forced into a war with Germany. It is when King George VI comes of age to deliver his first address to his people.
Drama…coming of age…historic bromance. There are no explanation nor words to put in this film about one man’s self-discovery and another man’s true calling to a new dream. To hell that “The King’s Speech” is rated R. It’s rated :Remarkable for everyone who feels alone in this cold uncaring world.
Rent or buy “The King’s Speech.” You’ll be cheering over the film’s message: No matter who you are or what your status is; you can overcome adversity just by trying.
Go for broke.
Princess Anne longs to be free from the place walls. After suffering a breakdown, she rebels and runs away. Sleeping on a bench, she meets an upbeat and bewildered newspaper reporter, who pretends to ignore Princess Anne’s true identity. Along with a carefree cameraman, the two set off on an adventure of a lifetime. At the crossroads, the two lovers must part and go their separate ways.
Roman Holiday stars Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck as two star-crossed lovers who take an adventure in the by-gone days of 1950’s Rome. A heartfelt and touching romantic comedy, the film deals with sensitive and personal issues, such as self-discovery, duty, and letting go.
Roman Holiday is a movie that adults and children can watch and discuss together. This film is sure to warm your heart and put a smile on your face for years to come.
My rating: A
When an 18-year old young man is on trial for the murder of his father, twelve men are chosen to serve on the jury to decide the young man’s fate. Eleven nameless jurors are convinced that the defendant is guilty of the crime; but the twelfth has no doubt that the young man is innocent.
Slowly, the twelfth man begins to change the hearts and minds of the other jurors. When one stone-hearted juror is torn between choosing to go with the guilty verdict, the other men make him search into his own heart to reveal a painful secret he has hidden.
12 Angry men gives a distinctive performance with its cast of actors whose character is perfect in every detail. The film is powerful, suspenseful and extremely fascinating. Henry Fonda gives a fantastic performance as the twelfth juror who convinces the eleven men to challenge the outcome of the young man’s crime.
Full of drama, power and emotion, 12 Angry Men is an exciting impact of 11 men steering to the same conclusion as the twelfth man. One of the best films that no one should afford to miss.
There is a 2009 Russian remake called ‘12’. I’ll give a review on the remake once I have a hold of the DVD.
Grumpy German worker Rudi hates change and prefers to keep his life plain. After Rudi’s wife Trudi learns of her husband’s terminal illness, Trudi hides the secret from him. She convinces Rudi to visit their family in Berlin. When Turdi passes away, Rudi is heartbroken and takes a trip of a lifetime to the beautiful and mysterious Tokyo. On his journey, he meets a young actress name Yu, who teaches him about life.
As Rudi’s life on Earth runs out, he enjoys his last adventure that will lead him to a new beginning. Cherry Blossoms is Doris Dorrie’s moving film that takes the style of the films Last Holiday and Ikiru (To Live) and turns it into a tender and emotional masterpiece. Full of poetic and moving moments, Cherry Blossoms will leave you moved with its sensitivity and heart-wrenching ending. If you want a movie that has marital love and flowing shots, then Cherry Blossoms is the film for you.
Due to the mild sexual images and brief language in the film, it is cautionary that viewers 15+ should watch this movie with their parents/guardians and discuss the mature themes and lessons that appear in the scenes. Don’t miss Cherry Blossoms for anything in the world.
My rating: A+
