My Favourite Scene: Good Will Hunting

This gallery contains 1 photo.

I adore this movie, particularly because of Robin Williams’ performance as a shrink named Sean. He has many lovely quotes, but this speech is my favourite. It’s about living life and having first-hand experiences. I think how Robin Williams encapsulates the depths of sadness that Sean has after losing his wife is tear-jerking… Continue reading

Ocean’s Eleven

This gallery contains 3 photos.

After hearing about Ocean’s Eight coming out, I decided it was time to watch the first instalment.

Actually, Ocean’s Eleven is a remake of a 1960s movie called Ocean’s 11 (number instead of word) featuring Frank Sinatra as the protagonist. I had no clue!

Ocean’s Eleven is a fun, shallow film about a star-studded cast who rob a casino. Why? Because Danny Ocean (George Clooney) has just got out of prison and doesn’t accept that his ex-wife (Julia Roberts) has moved on with a wealthy casino-owner… Continue reading

Top 10: Actors Who Regretted Their Iconic Roles

This gallery contains 10 photos.

I never considered it before, but some actors genuinely regret roles they have accepted. I guess it’s quite difficult to tell if a film will be good or not when all you have to go on is a black and white script. I suppose there’s a lot of trust involved in accepting a role.

Some of these actors regret the roles because the film was a flop, and some of them resent their character because it made them internationally famous… Continue reading

Top 5: Favourite On-Screen Duos

This gallery contains 8 photos.

I was thinking about Ant and Dec, and the unfortunate circumstances that led to Dec having to do the Saturday Night Take Away on his own. I thought how one really can’t do much without the other. You always see them together, and they are at their best together. 

That got me thinking about film duos – the actors we always see together on-screen, but get the feeling they hang out off-screen too… Continue reading

Good Will Hunting

This gallery contains 3 photos.

This film is fantastic. You know why? Because it achieves thought provoking material without loosing the audience in to deep and meaningful and philosophical black hole. The film is able to do this by keeping the humour which seems loyal to the culture that the story is based around… Continue reading
