Which Actor Would Play You in a Movie?

This gallery contains 6 photos.

With the possibility of my life being made into a movie one day (ha ha), I have prepared a casting list for my some of my family. (Just to help the producers out.)

Is this something everyone else thinks about in their spare time..?

The actors who will play me, my parents, brother and significant other must have some physical similarities to the actor portraying them, as well as having the ability to bring their characters to the screen believably.

Here are my decisions below. Please let me know in the comments section or on Facebook who you’d want to have play you!… Continue reading

Crazy, Stupid, Love

This gallery contains 3 photos.

Initially reminding me of other star-studded, multi-storyline films like Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Day and Love Actually, I didn’t have high-hopes for this ‘dramedy’.¬†However, I was pleasantly surprised – it’s very funny indeed.

It follows several storylines that all end up being intertwined. But it begins with Emily (Julianne Moore) who cheats on her husband Cal (Steve Carrel). Jacob (Ryan Gosling) takes pity on a moping Cal and gives him a fashion and ego make-over.

Steve Carrel – who is also a producer of this movie – wanted the film to be called ‘The Wingman’ as it accurately described the main storyline. But it was eventually decided that it was a boring title and Crazy, Stupid, Love was chosen instead. (Even though it’s a girlie title, and inaccurate as there’s not a lot of ‘crazy’ in the film.)… Continue reading

Top 5: On-Screen Lovers Who Disliked Each Other Off-Screen

This gallery contains 5 photos.

After finding out that Kathleen Turner and Nicholas Cage weren’t the best of friends in Peggy Sue Got Married, I decided to find out what other on-screen romances were less than genuine. Apparently there are a few!

It’s a shame that our favourite on-screen couples turn out to be played by people who strongly dislike one another. But from their point of view, what an awful situation to be in! It’s hard enough working with annoying or difficult people, but imagine having to pretend to be in love with them. Ugh. I guess that’s why actors are paid so much… Continue reading

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

Blade Runner 2049

This gallery contains 3 photos.

Well, thank Christ we went to see this movie in the ‘Gold Class’ luxury cinema, because the recliner seats made for a comfortable place to sleep.

This snail-paced sequel highlights the reason why sequels to blockbuster originals should not be done.

Admittedly, I haven’t seen the first Blade Runner film from start to finish in one sitting, but I’ve seen basically all of it if you puzzle together all of my attempts… Continue reading

La La Land

This gallery contains 7 photos.

IT’S SO MAGICAL!

Despite the trailer making me expect Glee meets Grease, I had heard so many rave reviews about La La Land, that I simply had to see it for myself.

I was not disappointed.

A story about a boy and a girl, with grand dreams (already a refreshing storyline in itself). Ryan Gosling’s character, Sebastian, wants to be a jazz musician, playing in his own bar. Emma Stone’s character, Mia, wants to be a successful actress. Two strong-minded people going in different directions, yet refusing to let go of each other… Continue reading

Gangster Squad

Wow! I was so looking forward to seeing this and boy was it worth the wait!

Wow! I was so looking forward to seeing this and boy was it worth the wait!

It certainly reminded me of Public Enemies (featuring Johnny Depp) for obvious reasons; both based on a true story, both take place in the forties involving Los Angeles gangsters. However, the stories are clearly different… Continue reading
