Man, I love Westerns. While browsing through Amazon Prime Video I noticed a Western that caught my eye simply because of the two actors that straddled the poster; Russel Crowe and Christian Bale, two of my favorite male actors of all time. It was no surprise then that I would end up liking the movie…a lot.
3: 10 to Yuma had me riveted pretty much from beginning to end and had me constantly guessing how the story was going to end. None of my predictions came true, by the way.
The last Country Western-inspired film I watched was Unforgiven which I found to be totally boring. This movie was anything but boring and I am glad I took the time to watch it. What a fantastic story!
I’m giving this movie 4.5 out of 5 stars and 95 out of 100. It’s not perfect but boy was it entertaining.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day.
Russel Crowe is an amazing actor. I didn’t truly know as much until I saw his performance in A Beautiful Mind which completely blew my mind. (He should’ve won Best Actor.) Considering that I’ve been watching a lot of movies starring the New Zealand actor lately I figured he would be the perfect person for this week’s A Movie Ranking. Enjoy!
6. The Mummy
This movie is horrible. So horrible that I can’t believe an actor as great as Russel Crowe would even think of being in this film. It’s truly baffling. Continue reading A Movie Ranking: Russel Crowe
My mother’s been telling me to watch A Beautiful Mind for practically a year now. I’ve been putting it off because I thought I knew what the movie was about. I soon discovered that the movie was nothing like I expected. Deservedly winning Best Picture, A Beautiful Mind struck me with its bold storytelling that had me on the edge of my seat. I didn’t know what was going to happen, I didn’t know the story would end, all I knew was that the movie was good as crap.
The most recent film I watched involving Russel Crowe was the ridiculous and absolutely horrible movie called The Mummy where he portrayed Dr. Henry Jekyll. I was, and still, very livid that he would stoop down to a role (and movie) as terrible as that when he is SUCH a good actor. A Beautiful Mind only sharpened my anger. Continue reading ‘A Beautiful Mind’: The Ultimate Surprise
This was one of those movies I happened to miss in 2017 but I wasn’t too bummed about it, considering that the movie had received horrendous reviews. I figured that the movie couldn’t be too bad, especially with the fact that it starred Tom Cruise. Tom Cruise doesn’t make bad movies. In fact, I love all of his movies, except for Jack Reacher, but that’s a whole other story.
So I decided to watch The Mummy to see if it really was as bad as everyone said it was. And…at first…it was kind of interesting, storywise. Ahmanet was this Egyptian princess who was destined to become the queen of Egypt but then her father had a son and so the little baby boy took her place as heir to the throne. So, to enact revenge, she sold her soul to the God of Death, Set, and became this evil death lady. She slit her father’s throat, killed her mother, and murdered their newborn son, and then to complete her mission, she needed to plunge this special dagger given to her by Set into the stomach of a man to bring the God of Death to life. But she was prevented from doing so, she was wrapped up like a mummy and buried alive in a casket, never to be found again.
So that was basically the prologue and then the movie started.
