I’ve just returned from the premier screening of State Of Play and I must say, I was pretty apprehensive about the storyline before watching it. Standing on a completely biased ground initially, here’s my review.
Heck, Russel Crowe looked like a homeless stray hobbo in the movie. God bless the hair omfg. He can’t get any shabbier even if he tried. Like seriously, what’s with the unruly hair?
A journalist CAN be immaculate too ya’ know. We aren’t all that broody. YOU need a makeover, buddy.
They even have a pretty boring poster being publicized. It failed some brownie points from me, as it didn’t catch my eye! From the poster, I was expecting some long-winded movie filled with solemn moments of people talking.
But I was wrong.
There never was a moment where I looked at the time nor reply an SMS. It kept my attention span in such a tight grip that I realized I was sitting bolt upright in the midst of showtime. Kel Li had her legs up like a trishaw woman (omg don’t murder me)
Rachel McAdams starred alongside Russel Crowe and Ben (omg the hottie) Affleck as well. I was inspired by her determined and inquisitive nature. Those characteristics are what I see in a true journalist.
It revolved around journalists digging for a case and a story… furious editors yelling their heads off for their poor lil minions to meet the deadline. Been there, done that…heh. I totally get it, very normal.
When I got home, buddyBenj and I were talking a wee bit about the movie. Yeah, he went online to watch every movie premiering in the United States. That’s so him LOL
We came to a conclusion that we preferred Rachel McAdams the bimbo in the movie Mean Girls. She seemed too intelligent in this movie. XD
