"I am just a girl, standing in front of a boy,asking him to love me." 


Notting Hill, 1999

Julia Roberts & Hugh Grant


I found this film because I typed the keyword "Portobello Market" in Google and all information head to "Notting Hill".

I love this film so much that I can't say how much I love it and I even list it into my top favourite. It's so romantic, and its soundtrack SHE repeating singing "SHE" makes me so touches too.

If a celebrity and a normal person can really be together, is it will be like that? Actually, when Zack denied Anna, I was disappointed also I know FILM will never left an ending like that. I have to say, Zack, who can denied a beauty like that, he's really really agood man we all want to looking for.

Even though I never expect someone really handsome or something, I just want onesimple and sincere, and tall......

Everyone borned equally in LOVE, and we should be treated after we grew up, but apparently that can't be possible.

So, wait............................................. just wait......................................................

 

致我們終將逝去的青春/趙薇 導演


高中時候,因為這個名字,我把辛夷塢的這本書買來,放在書架上。那時,我似乎是看了一些,可是不太明白。噢,我想起來了,當時大概在想“這都在講大學的事情,”所以便沒有看完。

「致青春」這三個字從去年開始,開始在微博上流傳。後來,我才知道原來是趙薇導演的第一部作品,要改變這部小說。「青春」這兩個字不管在各種場合出現,都會讓人心裡癢癢的。是一種感覺,是一段歲月,更是一種回不去的美好。

題外話一下:這部電影的微博行銷長達一年,各種配置也很大牌,主題曲、制作團隊、各種配角,這當然要歸功於在影視界打拼不知道多少年的導演大人。

當然不能否認,心情是期待的。雖然偶爾有一絲絲懷疑。當終於4月26日上映的時候,我無法在台灣看到首映,是有點痛心的==。但是等等等等,等到昨天,終於把不明來源的片子看了。

信息量太大。

趙薇想給觀眾很多東西,但是情節有些零碎,轉場轉的讓人覺得莫名,除了主角之外的有一些些戲份的配角們的情節發展太沒有鋪墊,讓人覺得好突然。有一些情節也確實不在情理。但是以我看來,我就當作是主角太過情緒化,太激動,太不能控制自己了,可能也是一種青春的表現吧。反過來看,就是這樣的情節才會在電影中被需要。

————————————————————————————————————————

我還是希望陳孝正和鄭微在一起的。

那些長達X年的感情,有的時候麻木了,太久了,都不能確定自己是不是愛,或者是別的情緒,就像阮莞和她那沒出息的小男朋友,或者是鄭微和林靜。

我猜林靜在原著中的戲份可能更多一些,但是在電影裡面並不是,林靜與鄭微之間的關係雖然很微妙,但是也有點詭異。另外林靜和她瘋掉的前女友到底是怎麼能夠在一起,太不知道是什麼邏輯了。

這可能要看人到底是因為想談戀愛而談戀愛還是因為愛人而想戀愛了。

————————————————————————————————————————

至少,這不是我青春的樣子。

現在才大學頭兩年,說起愛的勇氣,那可能要追溯到初中時代吧。

我也不知道是什麼事情讓我變的這麼沒有追求愛的勇氣,我更不知道為什麼一直都沒有出現讓我覺得心動的人。


青春終將要失去,現在已經是未老先衰了。

最後,最值得留下的便是片尾曲——《致青春》/王菲

(ps.每張劇照的logo都太大了...一點也不美.......................................)

 

Iron Man 3,台北西門日新威秀IMAX影城。

唉,就是衝著IMAX去的,首先要聲明的是,我對小羅伯特唐尼的興趣遠遠超過鋼鐵俠的興趣。

最典型的美國式科幻英雄電影最愛用的元素之一就是大面積的毀滅性破壞,這真的讓人太不爽了==而且暴力、噁心也常常被濫用在這種電影裡面。特別是噁心..........生化危機這種我真是覺得已經夠了,怎麼可以噁心到這種程度,而鋼鐵俠裡面出現的,居然是打不死的「絕境戰士」?!這四個字是台灣翻譯裡面出現的,怎麼好像還很牛逼轟轟的樣子。

而且,台灣到底在搞什麼噱頭,4月24領先全球上映?!而且爆米花和汽水杯子還印成鋼鐵人的樣子,而且還送四只小公仔。我越來越不明白了。而且同伴與我決定要買包括以上的套餐的時候,她居然說,公仔只剩鋼鐵愛國者號的了沒有鋼鐵俠的了,握了一個擦,那我買個屁啊==

好,以上是激動了一點,還是說回這部電影。


學電影的朋友聽說我要去電影院看這部電影的時候,就淡淡的回應了,這種爛片你也要看。確實是大爛片沒有錯,情節冗長,有時候Tony Stark的那種幽默變的氣氛有點尷尬,結尾那是什麼啊,影院還提示說結尾有精彩blahblah,不就是一個跟我不熟的綠巨人和Tony Stark的小對話,而且重點是那個敵人是打不死的噁心人,再來一個重點,中國幹嘛莫名其妙的就被扯進去,而且這個掛號的大BOSS居然叫Mandarin,這個Mandarin居然還是個吸毒的瘋瘋癲癲的演員,真是高端黑死中國人啊。(不過也證明了中國崛起==不能忽視,我自認為/)這部片中途我一度看不下去,我也不懂為什麼有人可以一看再看,二看三看,還是覺得很好看。

不過我讚同一點是,這種需要特效,音效,需要這種震撼效果的片還是適合到電影院看的。不然你能想像,在宿舍裡,帶著耳機,看這十幾寸手提電腦螢幕看著鋼鐵俠的情景嗎?

如果一定要說點好的,我太喜歡結尾了,浪漫的(雖然不足以化解我對以上的不解)讓人覺得看了這個IMAX版我覺得還是可以接受的,那ironman組團放煙花,棒。

以上,我不想再說了,絕對不會再看第二次。

 

Alpha Dog

Justin Timberlake & Amanda Seyfried


Anyway, at the beginning, I have no idea what those scenes mean, at the end of Alpha Dog, I finally figure out this is a story adapt basing on a true story. That makes this film powerful and special, and more thoughtful.

A young boy, Zack, whose brother owe a drug dealer's money, was kidnapped by that drug dealer and his friends. Strangly, Zack wants leave home too. So these men's kidnapping is not mean too much for Zack, and maybe it means some excited games for this fifteen-year-old boy. Although, this kind of behavior is criminal for those drug dealer, they would be passed sentences for life or even more.

Disappointedly, these drug dealers did not make the right decision. They killed that boy to cover their crime at one time. But we know that consititue won't ignore them and give them a charge.


As to me, we really should think about our parents words though they make you annoyed. The boy wants fresh things but he chooses wrong person and that person lead him to die. That boy is absolutely innocent. It's was totally a tradegy and no one can help that lose-mind guys turn to right way.

We should really consider very desicion we will make, everything. We need to take the responsibilities. Now, we are all adults, so, don't make any decision when you are losing your mind even with you crazy friends. That's so terrible.


Do things right, do right things.

 

We need to talk about Kevin 2011

Tilta Swinton & Erza Miller


This is a thoughful and serious-topic film. Kevin is a anti-social boy and it bother his mother from his birth. We can feel deeply from those scenes that the mother Eva bear such hugh stress from her weird boy.

The long-story film ends with an event that Kevin's crime of killing students in his high school even sister and father. That's such terrible thing. Althought, the real thing we should thing about is "WHY".

If that's me Eva, I must lost my patient to treat this kind of weird kid especially when he is mouth of dirty words and behavior not like a normal person and almost not to show his kindness anytime. I must escape away though that's my kid.

But, luckily, at the end, we can see Kevin and Eva hugging each other tightly. Maybe it means their relationship is much better than before? I don't know.

All in all, that's a opening ending of this film. And, we still can figure out many elements of why Kevin will behavior like this, might be his family relationship or school mates. Whatever, we don't know. We should learn from this film and think deeply about it.

 

Perfume: The story of a Murderer 2006

Ben Whishaw


To begin with, I noticed this movie because of its leading actor Ben Whishaw. I found him excellent and cute in Cloud Atlas and then in 007 SKYFALL. He's really an excellent actor.

And accidently, I heard this movie from my roommate when she was talking about some kinds of Literary films and she said this film is some kind of horror film. But after I'm seeing it, it's totally not a horror film at all. It just some kind of weird. Always some weird film has a great film script that and absort the audience to focus and attracted by its story.

Purfume does, it really does and does it very well. Just look at the words discribing the story, it's attractive enough as well as the leading actor is one who I'm interested at. 

I think talk more about the story will be better than just talk about this appearance outside. Jean who is talented at telling thousands different kinds of smell was born inthe most dirty place in Paris and he suffered bad life until he met a Flavorist who can teach him how to keep smells. After that, he seems to find the reason why he exist in this world - to keep smells. Jean thinks and does tests days and nights to keep smells till - his master can't teach him what he really want. Jean's master told Jean togo to another place and there's another master who can teach him. Jean tried everything because he was fascinated by the smelling from young girls. It's so horrible that Jean try everything to keep this kind of smell even to kill many girls and did tests on them. 

This's a long part of this film. But what i'm thinking is, how did the script writer turn the smell from young girls into the smell of LOVE. And the prefume which gather many those girls' smell can make people love. I don't believe it and when I looked up this movie on Douban, I saw the type of film is fascinating and drama. Wow, how fascinating is it! I can't agree more.

Everytime I saw this kind of fascinating of fancy movie, I know that I'm not only need to know the information that the film gave us directly, but also think about why it become this.

At the end of the film, there's a suprised view of thousands of people making love in the palace because of smelling that perfume. Is this the power of LOVE? Whatever, Jean can't love or be loved anymore since he first time kill that girl.

Eventually, I figure out that maybe this's a film talking about LOVE. Why Jean want to collect those young girls' smell is also because of the LOVE. But it's such a tragedy Jean had nothing at last.


I want to see this film twice in the future, it makes me think about love.

One more, some people can do anything good or bad to earn their own love whether is correct of not. In one sentence, everyone deserves their own LOVE.

 

Silver Linings Playbook

Bradly Cooper & Jennifer Lawrence


My favourite part of this film is the ending when Tiffany and Pat kisses. That's so romantic.

As the report of this year Oscar Reward, Jennifer Lawrence won the Best Actress so I want to see this film. It's such a long film but it's fine with it's story. Tiffany(Jennifer Lawrence) show her great power in this role playing a woman with some problems, I did shocked by her power. 

And this film shows some problems. One of the problems is the communication among families. We can see Pat's father is not soft as his mother did and the father always push Pat to do something he don't like. And it problely cause the Pat's mind break and going to the phychologist. 

The second one is both Pat and Tiffany can't face directly to their broken marriage whatever their partner is dead or betray them. I never suffer this but I guess it mustbe hard. Just like Pat, after Nikki left him, he really tries to be more positive and passionate and change his life to a better way. That's good. 

The last one is the treatment from stranger and some families friends. These peopledon't treat them as a normal person. They ridicule, they gossip, and these kind of behavior will add more stress to Pat. It's not a positive environment to help Pat to recover. So we can learn to more forgive and don't treat these people in a mean way.


That's it. I'm going to watch something else in the cold cold taipei evening.

 

Die another day. The 20th of 007 series.

THAT IS AMAZING again....

每部007都那麼長,而這部雖然是2002,也有10年了,但是那個amazing的程度一點都不亞於現在的電影,只是有些特效場景看起來有些生硬罷了。

冰宮是一個神奇的存在,印象中也有出現過一個在北極圈附近的冰宮酒店,聽說還能看到北極光。不管是現實還是虛擬的存在,這個冰宮都太美了。

最最最最高潮的地方應該是James和「趙」大破冰宮的時候,那個橫衝直撞不顧一切,確實是精彩。

可是,最近突然發現這些有打鬥諜戰成分的電影有一點讓我非常不喜歡的,就是,太容易出現破壞性的場景,而且這些破壞都是毀滅性的,讓我覺得有一些難以言喻的不舒服。

總的來說007系列還是很精彩的,雖然現在才看了四部,Halle Berry太美了,Pierce Brosnan,雖然以前好像沒看過他的電影,但是深入人心的007形象讓人覺得,對,這就是007。

好吧,一大早起來到現在還沒有吃東西,趕緊去煮餃子了。

 

獻上最愛的一對。


說起來也丟人,這是第一次接觸悲慘世界。可能小時候有看過那種綠色裝禎的精簡版可是完全不記得了。

這部電影,看完覺得很震撼,覺得那個音樂劇真是寫的很深刻很動神,我第二次不小心在別人那裡聽到的時候已經印象很深刻了。

名著畢竟是名著,裡面結合了許許多多社會背景階級的政治經濟文化各種方面的問題。有些書之所以能流傳千古一定程度上是因為它作為參考資料能夠反映一些我們無法回去的過去的一些真是的狀況。

有空一定要讀一讀原著。


另外講一下這兩位演員,

Amanda Seyfried,之前就很喜歡她,覺得她美的不能再美了。看過《媽媽咪呀》、《分手信》候,自然是對這個面孔十分的印象深刻。她從小便學習音樂,在聲樂方面有進修過。聲音聽起來好清澈好透明<3 我記得看到一個資料說,幸好她表演和學習都沒有放棄,是該兼顧一些事情,不過當自己無法做決定的時候,家長可能也得好好hold一下。

Eddie Redmayne。真的太眼熟,有時候看到很眼熟的外國演員,那個眼熟啊,又想不起來電影的名字真是叫人捶地啊。後來去查了一下是《夢露與我的浪漫一周》裡面出現的(算是)男主角。對他臉上那深深的斑印象太深刻了。看了悲慘世界才去百度了一下人家,我了個擦,英國高的不能再高的高校畢業,而且在校就有演出音樂劇什麼的,好像是演莎士比亞演紅的~~我表示會一直關注你~

亂七八糟寫了一堆,下次我會好好寫。請原諒我的無知。。。
