I love movies based on a true story. The Bank Job was pretty interesting. It marks the turnaround of the once crime infested Scotland Yard.
Cutie pie Jason Statham takes the lead in this true story of the 1971 Baker Street bank robbery which was prevented from being told for over thirty years because of a Government gagging order. The real story of how one of the biggest robberies in British history took place with no arrests ever made nor money ever recovered.
This film reveals what was hidden for the first time. The story involves murder, corruption and a sex scandal with links to the Royal Family (Princess Margret) – a story in which the thieves were the most innocent unusual suspects of all time.
This move gets 3 out of 5 Kisses
This movie is about eight strangers with eight different points of view trying to unlock the one truth behind an assassination attempt on the president of the United States. I waited four months to see this movie, and for me it didn’t disappoint. However, I’m not necessarily recommending that you run out to go see this movie. It does have its frustrations, like rewinding back to the actual assassination eight times to to show each character’s eye witness account. Absence this one annoyance, the movie does draw you in and keeps you on the edge of the seat.
This movie gets 31/2 kisses out of 5!
The nominations were announced today for the 2008 Academy Awards. As I scanned the list, I saw that the movie Norbit was nominated for best makeup. Well, I’m embarrassed to admit that I did see this movie. However, I will agree that the makeup for Rasputia (Eddie Murphy in drag) was excellent! I also think that Norbit should have gotten a nod for best costume as well. Rasputia wore very trendy outfits, along with various complimentary wigs. it was refreshing to see instead of the tent dresses that they put on large women in the name of fashion.
I am in no way endorsing this movie as a must see, but you have to give credit were credit is due.
