It’s no secret, I’m in LOVE with films. The lights go down, and for ninety minutes you are transported into another world. You cry, you laugh or scream of horror, but for that period of time, the world disappears, and you are submerged into the imagination of the filmmakers. The ultimate treat is coming out of the movies with the feeling that you just watched a great story. I can’t say when I started loving them, but I remember being a little girl and watching black and white horror movies every day even when I couldn’t sleep at night. Or begging my mom to let me rent a movie – EVERY DAY- as long as I got all As. Yes, I’m a film buff, and a very proud one. Luckily Danny is a film buff too, and together we remember film quotes or references that nobody can understand. We are known for watching films nobody else knows or watches, from all genres and countries. Our friends know us for that. In light of that, I would like to continue with my movie recommendation posts.
This week I’m recommending three great actors in three very different genres: Antonio Banderas, Paul Rudd and Bradley Cooper.
Foreign: “The Skin I live in” – by Almodovar. If you are an Almodovar far, you have to watch this film. If you are not an Almodovar fan, you better pass. This film is for serious film lovers as it is like non other.
Comedy: “My idiot brother” – This movie is seriously silly, and totally awesome. Great acting, amazing cast and totally unpretentious, it definitely became one of my favorite Paul Rudd’s movies.
Thriller: “Limitless” – With Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro you can’t really go wrong. Very good acting by Bradley Cooper, and a great story that will make you want to be Limitless.
