Beautiful, tragic and tear-jerking
I first saw this movie when I was nine years old (I am now twelve). I think that some parts of it were difficult for me to understand three years ago, but now I can see this movie very clearly as a masterpiece.
It all starts in the middle of the ocean. A team of men are working to try to hoist long-lost treasures out of the Titanic, a ship that contained many treasures belonging to wealthy passengers. Nothing is found - apart from a drawing of a young woman. The men investigate the drawing closer, and manage to find the woman in it, who tells the story of her experiences on Titanic.
Rose DeWitt Bukater is a young, beautiful and wealthy woman, travelling back to America with her mother and fiancé, Cal Hockley. She detests everything about her life, as all her mother and companions think about is money. She see's no way out of this trap - until she meets Jack Dawson; a poor and talented American artist, who instantly falls in love with her. At first, Rose is hesitant and slightly icy towards Jack, but then realises that she loves him too. This causes immediate feuding between Jack and Cal, which seems unstoppable.
Just as Rose and Jack's relationship starts to blossom, a major disaster sticks upon the Titanic. A disaster that cannot be helped.
Excellent and memorable acting is given from all of the main characters - particularly Kate Winslet as Rose, and Leonardo DiCaprio as Jack. I have to admit, I can't watch this movie a single time without crying; it is very emotional with some very sad scenes. Very beautiful, yet sad. I would recommend this movie to everyone between the ages of 9 onwards. No-one should miss out of this top-class drama, that holds many records. **********
The Village (2004)
Overrated and Weird
Movie: The Village
Cast: Bryce Dallas Howard, Joaquin Phoenix
OK, so basically I wanted to watch "The Village" because it seemed (in the trailer) like a scary and unpredictable movie. I was proved completely wrong.
Lucius Hunt (Phoenix) is a quiet man living in a small village, surrounded by a beautiful and mysterious wood. The people of the village have been told by the village elders that strange creatures live withing the woods, and they have a pact - They won't come into our village if we don't go into their woods.
Lucius is determined to find out about these creatures, and crosses the forbidden boarder into the woods. There is an immediate sense that these creatures are coming... and coming fast. Ivy Walker (Howard) is a blind girl who also resides in the village. Just a curious as Lucius, she ends up trapped in the middle of a horror that only very few know about...
I have to admit that this movie had some very good and gripping scenes. But the final conclusion is an enormous cheat, and completely ruins the whole tension. Watch this if you are prepared to be disappointed.
