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.
I loved the part where he was trapped in the basement carpark with the professional assassin! That part could probably make my pulsating heartbeat put a stampede to shame.
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
(zomfg, I get first comment ? How rare.)
Mm, I agree with you. I didn't even like Rachael McAdams in The Notebook. She left too strong an impression from Mean Girls. But she is pretty brilliant.
And OMFG. SQUEE. You look adorableee :3
And. Vamp movies. VAMPIRES USED TO BE COOL. What the hell happened to the good vampire movies. Queen of the Damned and Underworld (haha, my faves) and they dare, DARE to to release that .. that…
VAMPIRES DON'T FUCKING SPARKLE, DAMMIT.
/end hates on Twilight.
I HATE TWILIGHT
SO BLOOD CORNY
HE looks like he was going to barf anytime
and WHAT TRISHAWWWWWWWWW
I always put my feet up 🙁 quietly. 😛
Trailer looks great. Crowe is one of those guys that always puts in a great performance, imho. I just saw 3:10 to Yuma (under duress) and was surprised at how good it was, mostly because of him.
And, yeah, what's with the hair? He's bustin on my style! I've been cultivating that shabby, shaggy look for over a year now : )
OHH YUCKKK I HATE TWILIGHT
Oh jie~ hm~ im gna go catch that movie. and omfg~! I SUPER DUPER TARANTULALY HATE TWILIGHT! TWILIGHT MY HEAD LAR~ LOL~xD
It is just another coincidence?! Lol~
Love the twisted end. Props to M.M.Carnahan (The Kingdom, Lions for Lambs) for writing it. MacDonald did a good job directing it too.
Twilight sucks. After I watched the movie I thought, " okay.. that kind of sucked. but maybe the book is better"
then i read the book and thought,
"Nope. Still SUCKED."
I baru can online!!! and… YES TWILIGHT SUCK!!!
but my slogan for the Blood premier is 'IF I AM A VAMPIRE, I WILL KILL EDWARD CULLEN BECAUSE HE IS VEGETARIAN!!!! ROARRRRR"
Rare it is, you're the first! Yippee! And hell yeah, she's brilliant but ONLY in Mean Girls lol. No u look more adorable than me dearie. And i totally agree with ya, vampires used to be frm the dark side.. and now there's sparkly vamps and omfg vegetarian vamps? Wtf
Muahahaha ur sharing my wrath babe! LOL i hate twilight too. It's corny but i can't deny that Cullen is cute XD and yes ur lucky to be tiny enuff to be able to raise ur legs. /thinks of nigel doing it
Most ppl say don't trust trailers, but I can assure u that this movie was the bomb! And lol u have Crowe's hair. Woooo lala. Some ppl can pull it off sexy, but some ppl well.. they just fail at it /points at Crowe
/high five. it's so cheesy
Dearie, YET ANOTHER coincidence? Awesomeness /hugss and go watch it u must!
Yuppers! The end was rlly good… I liked how they left the newsppr printing n distribution process towards the end. 🙂 MacDonald FTW
LOL good going. When something sucks real bad, it's hard to un-suck it wtf. haha! They just phail at making vamp movies. (But why does Cullen have to be so cute?)
Woots! Another anti-Twilight person. I wonder if I can start an army against corny vampire movies. ahhahhaa. and stupid vegetarian vamps can go stuff their fangs in Popeye's spinach
Since you are giving the movie a good review, I will definitely go catch it 😀
