To me, this is the most salient point: Mr. Depp always sells his characters and indeed, can play an astonishing array of characters. Tom Cruise has much more limited range, imo.wrote:Mr. Depp's career is plowing ahead while yours has run aground for the simple reason that he's never sold himself ("Hi there, fans, I'm Johnny Depp.") He's always sold his characters, which form a veritable menagerie of types and styles.
OMG!!! That is SOOOO my hubby and I when we go to the movies.....to a tee! I think we're going to see Grownups tomorrow (my boss said he laughed a LOT and I need a good laugh), and it's been out (I believe) for two weeks. LOL!wrote:(Let's see ... how about the showing at 11 a.m. Sunday two weeks from now? Ought to be able to get in without fighting through a mob of hormone-secreting high-schoolers.)
Bilki--I want to see this movie so bad and now that I see how much you like it, even worse! I love Colin Firth and the few clips I've seen leave me wanting more.bilki wrote:I've watched A Single Man, with Colin Firth and Julianne Moore, twice now and will probably watch it one more time before I send it back. Very much enjoyed it. I believe it's set in 1962, and fans of Mad Men may appreciate that it's done by the same production design team. Jon Hamm even has an uncredited voice role early in the film, though director Tom Ford claims he didn't realize the connection at first.
The animated series was actually quite good. Quite a bit of humor and some surprising character development. You can credit M. Knight Shyamalan with completely ruining it. All of my friends who are fans of the series were completely disappointed with the film.mozartkc wrote:Yay! I can finally comment in this section! A friend talked me into seeing "The Last Airbender" ....wtf....pardon me here but that movie was so gay. The kid can't act, the pace dragged on, and I really had no clue what was going on. I realize that this movie was based on a childrens cartoon so maybe thats why I didn't enjoy it. The movie was full of 1 liners that seemed perverted and I was always wondering where all the women were.
