Good Will hunting (1997)
Will es un joven rebelde con una inteligencia asombrosa, especialmente para las matemáticas. El descubrimiento de su talento por parte de los profesores le planteará un dilema: seguir con su vida de siempre -un trabajo fácil, buenos amigos con los que tomar unas cervezas- o aprovechar sus grandes cualidades intelectuales en alguna universidad. Sólo los consejos de un solitario y bohemio profesor le ayudarán a decidirse
Soy fanatica de las películas llenas de buenos guiones, de esas que no necesitan grandes efectos especiales o maquillajes estráfalarios para ser que tengamos una experiencia inolvidable. La dupla Damon-Affleck es de las mejores, se nota el cariño y la dedicación en este trabajo que los llevo a la cúspide de las estrellas de Hollywood, acompañados en ese entonces por un incomparable Robbie Williams (me entra una nostalgia terrible con sólo verlo entrar en escena) y que sin duda tienen bien merecidos sus estatuillas doradas.
Estamos ante personajes bien construidos, la actuación de Damon como Will es sin duda la mejor de su carrera. Tenemos una historia llena de sentimientos, un psicólogo que enseña a sentir y un genio que sólo sabe pensar, y a lo largo del film podemos ver a ambos personajes complementarse para seguir adelante con aquellas situaciones del pasado que aún siguen vigentes en sus vidas; y sin duda, la escena del parque es de esas que te llegan al alma
Una película que entre más veces veas, más cosas interesantes descubres.
Frase: “Nosotros escogemos a quién dejamos entrar en nuestro mundo.” Puntos: 9.8/10
Miss Minnie has been very happy to be back home with us. Unfortunately her tests showed multiple kidney stones, gallbladder "sludge" and Cushing's Disease. The gallbladder should be a quick fix but it is thought her kidney stones will be chronic (potentially leading to ongoing infections) and the Cushing's can only be managed going forward. All of these things considered, Minnie will not be a good candidate for adoption. We are going to work hard to get her fixed up and as healthy as possible and she will stay with us as long as her health allows as a Forever Foster. Many dogs can live a number of years after a Cushing's diagnosis, and she is a happy dog with a lot of energy and zest for life.
Red carpet look last night for @driverminnie, get the look by doing a less contrived upsweep, refine the hair texture around the face and dishevel it a bit. Finish off with gold bars on both sides. Makeup is bronze glowing skin and brown plums, peach 🍑 and mauve taupes. Neutral pink on the lip with peach gloss❣️. Give it a try 😘. congrats #speechless for being honored by @televisionacad ❣️hair and makeup by @jonlieckfeltbeauty #bareminerals#charlottetilbury#maccosmetics#sugarpillcosmetics#phillipbhaircare @xclusiveartists #minniedriver
Screenwriter Tom Jankiewicz wrote the initial script for Grosse Pointe Blank in 1991 after receiving an invitation to his 10th high school reunion. He picked the title while substitute teaching for an English class at Upland High School, writing the title on the classroom's whiteboard to see how it would look on a movie-theater marquee. Jankiewicz decided to use Grosse Pointe, an upscale suburb of Detroit, Michigan, rather than his working-class hometown of Sterling Heights due to the contrast between the two towns.
Director George Armitage and Jankiewicz have collaborated with John Cusack, playing the lead man Martin Blank, perfectly to create some razor-sharp, witty dialogue. Debi (Minnie Driver) is the perfect foil to Blank's current secretive persona; she is candid, and brutally honest while being incredibly funny. Both are risk-takers, but in diametrically different ways. Alan Arkin plays Blank's reluctant shrink and will leave you rolling on the floor laughing. Joan Cusack is Blank's quirky secretary who is half scared of him and half mothers him.
Grosse Pointe Blank is an uncharacteristically funny film. Nothing about the lead character's job should be funny, and nothing about the violence should be funny, but it is. No wonder then that it is one of John Cusack's favourite films of his own. He saw the film as a metaphor for the Reagan/Bush years. "I grew up fascinated by people in the Reagan administration, their ethics, their mercenary values," he said in an interview. "People who plan wars and then go home to their wives and their kids ... How do they live? To me, Grosse Pointe Blank was a metaphor for the people in the Bush White House." Elsewhere, he described the movie as "a black comedy about the American Dream, that 'win at all costs' personality you see every day ... A tongue-in-cheek look at the American value system."
Ok so for the millionth time today I got told I look like this woman's double #minniedriver so I have to do a comparison....I do see some similarities but I wouldn't say #twin .....if I like half as good as her at her age then #decent ! #lookalike not so #lookalike
95. Sleepers - 23 May 2017
After a prank goes too far, four boys from New York's Hells Kitchen neighbourhood are sentenced to up to 18 months in a juvenile facility. Here they fall victim to a group of guards who bully, torture and sexually abuse them. Years later, the boys get their chance at revenge and justice.
This is a movie of 2 clear halves and I always thing the first is far more successful than the second. The child actors, who include Brad Renfro are terrific and Barry Levinson directs with the right amount of tension and sensitivity. You really do feel for these boys.
The second half starts off well as 2 of the boys, now grown up, confront one of their abusers played by Kevin Bacon. But it quickly descends into a pretty standard courtroom drama that doesn't do justice or give the kind of resolution to the good work the proceeds it.
There's plenty of star power on screen in the second half but it if it is wasted (Dustin Hoffman) or completely miscast (Brad Pitt) and I always find myself wishing the story had stuck with the kids. 6/10.
