Why this got such bad reviews the world will never know
This was one of the best movies I have seen in a long time, maybe one of the best ever. Baz has outdone himself again. Without the outrageous, colorful nature as Moulin Rouge! or Romeo+Juliet, Australia succeeds in being an elaborate epic romance. Nicole Kidman has not always been my favorite actress, but as in Moulin Rouge! she is brilliant in a role that allows her to go all out. Her character Sarah Ashley comes alive through the sheer weirdness of the actresses nature. She has the range to allow her character to evolve throughout the film. Hugh Jackman, what can I say about him? For several weeks before seeing Australia, I had been seeing him everywhere thinking 'what has he ever done? Sexiest man alive? No way?' etc. I was proved wrong. When he first appears, you do not see his character's, Drover, face. But when you do, the gasp from me and my two friends was proof enough: he is indeed beyond sexy. As if that wasn't enough, he can act like no other. In a chacter that could have been tough, he pulled it off, channeling the rugged cattle driver beautifully. Did I mention Brandon Walters as Nullah? The twelve year old boy stole the show as the sweet, conflicted Aboriginol boy Nullah. Really, for such a young child, he was stirring. With the direction and colorful backdrop to back up this fanatical acting and wonderful script, this movie is nothing but a classic in the making.
The Swan Princess (1994)
Such a cute movie
Okay, I'll admit, my sister and I loved this movie when we were kids. But when she suggested renting it again, I wasn't all that fired up. I hadn't seen it in years, and I couldn't figure out what possessed her to rent it. But we watched it again, and we love it just as much now!!! Sure, its a little corny, but its just so cute! Plus, the music is fun to sing (my sis and I have formed a duet of "This is my Idea" in which I always have to sing the guy part). Jean Bob is so funny in all the movies. Prince Derek is quite the hunk! Rothbart is one of the greatest villains of all time. Uberta is at her best in this one. It may sound obsessive, but we know all the lyrics to the songs now. All in all, this movie rocks for everyone, not just the little kids.
