Crop And Save
I can't say anything bad about Clint. He's a living LEGEND! So let's all praise him whist he's alive.
I've always admired Clint Eastwood's work as Actor & Director from the Spaghetti Westerns to Gran Torino. I will ignore the few dodgy movies in between (especially the one's with the chimp). But overall he's got better with age in his acting but more especially with his directing. Million Dollar Baby and Gran Torino are testament to this. Invictus was surely a big project for him to take on, because it was outside the USA and involved a sport called Rugby?? I reckon Clint did a great job in showing the racism between both blacks & whites without going over the top. But I'm sure there will be S.Africans who will not agree with the entire story told and Rugby fans who cannot relate to some of the ridiculous rugby scenes. But who cares? Who else would take on such a task like Clint? He's still breaking barriers with racism at his age when he could easily take the easy route of being a Hollywood star. I don't know where he still gets the motivation and energy from at his age to do it. But he sure knows how to drain every emotion from the cinema goer with superb acting, storyline & soundtrack. Morgan Freeman and Clint must be definitely up for the Oscars.
Being a Glastonbury attender for many years. I thought Julian Temple captured the whole essence of Glastonbury (of old) and you just wish it could be sunny & beautiful every year watching great bands. It is quite an occasion ;o) But like all the news, features, pictures, etc in the media of Glastonbury. This documentary does tend to show more of the wacky, cosmic, religious, colourful, muddy, naked people than the usual normal festival goer who just gets p*ssed and stoned (Otherwise it would be boring documentary!)
Glastonbury has now reached a crossroad and it's a double edged sword. Michael Eavis states that he had to get rid of the travellers because of trouble and he also built a huge fence to keep out the riff-raff. In a way we can totally applaud that because who wants our possessions stolen or 400,000 people at an event that's meant to hold 150,000? But in doing that Glastonbury has become a very corporate, yuppy and trendy event. What's happened to the HEART & SOUL of Glastonbury? I've also heard that the fabulous Los Vagueness is now no longer there ;o(
So it's ironic that in this year (2008) Glastonbury has not sold out(yet).
So please watch "Glastonbury" again to bring back long lost happy memories ;o)
The Godfather (1972)
A beautiful film
I have not watched this film since the 70's. But my 18 year old son kept on pestering me to watch it with him because it was the IMDb No1. The IMDb rating is our guide for watching any film and that infuriates my wife "Why can't you two just enjoy a film without checking if it's good or not on that website you go on?" I put off watching it with him for ages because it's about 3 hours long and I'm prone to falling asleep. But I watched the Godfather again tonight with my wife and son. We were silent from start to finish with the power and emotion of this film. I just love the way this the film portrays the mafia as an ordinary family that we begin to like. They have staunch religious beliefs in attending weddings, baptisms and funerals plus morals like we won't do narcotics. Yet they can murder somebody and it's just "business". The Godfather has no car chase, no gory violence and no idol threats like "I'm going to blow you away motherf*cker" It just makes you an offer that you can't refuse.
