Top 10: Actors Who Stopped Getting Typecast

This gallery contains 11 photos.

Ricky Gervais loves being typecast, he says that actors should do what they do best and not feel the pressure to play different parts.

However, this is clearly not the view of a lot of actors who seem to be trying to shake their ‘character’. Some have not been successful, such as Jack Black and Adam Sandler, who forever play the School of Rock and Happy Gilmore type casts.

Meanwhile other actors have been successful in breaking free from their typecast, and are in all sorts of films now…. Continue reading

The Reader

I’ve been thinking about this movie for days.

A gripping tale in post-war Germany, about a woman name Hanna Schmitz (Kate Winslet) who has a summer affair with a teenage boy named Michael Berg (David Kross). A few years later, Berg is a law student and is sitting in on a Nazi war crime trial in court where he is stunned to see Schmitz again… Continue reading

I mean, obviously this film was not going to be good, you could tell that from the trailer.

I can’t say I actually laughed at all in this movie… The funniest scene was the first short with Kate Winslet and Hugh Jackman but even so, I only giggled a little… Continue reading

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

This gallery contains 4 photos.

Still one of my favourite movies after multiple viewings! I discovered this film in English class two years ago and (admittedly not actually getting it the first time I watched it) I have loved it since!

This film is thought provoking to say the least… Mind boggling too. (Believe you me, the people who said they got it after the first viewing were either lying or they read the plot on Wikipedia.)

It’s sort of like Inception meets The Matrix, but that’s just because it’s the exploration of a different perspective of life. Continue reading
