The King’s Speech
Holy crap. Yes, 9 months of waiting (although back then I didn’t know it would be such a big deal). One month of checking out the theaters around me. I FINALLY SAW THE KING’S SPEECH. Oh my Colin freaking Firth. You are the best of the best. Geoffrey Rush. Sorry I only knew from Captain Barbossa but thank you for being in this movie you were splendid! Helena Bonham Carter. I only know you playing eccentric roles I did not know how adorable you were.
AND there were Jennifer Ehle (Elizabeth Benett from Pride and Prejudice) and David Bamber (Mr. Collins from P&P) — wow there was a festivity going on in my head. P&P REUNION BABY.
Might contain spoilers, so I might as well hide the rest ;)
Friends girls love Hugh Grant?
So I was watching Friends Season 1 Episode 19 and right after they came back from the movie (total chick flick, according to Chandler) there was this conversation:
Joey: Hey I don’t need violence to enjoy a movie. Just so long as there’s a little nudity.
Monica: There was nudity!
Joey: I meant female nudity. I don’t need to see Luke Grant floor licking.
Monica & Phoebe: Hugh! Hugh Grant!
I wonder which movie they watched?
I have seen 8 Colin Firth movies (including Disney’s A Christmas Carol). I have seen 6 Ewan McGregor movies (3 of them were Star Wars). I have seen 7 Hugh Grant movies. Just saying. Kinda feel like I needa see more.
I finally watched Notting Hill!! Wow. Hugh Grant. He’s good. He might not be an all-round actor (as he himself admitted) but he’s good in romantic comedies. He is really really good. I liked his role in this movie better than the ones in Bridget Jones or Love Actually, Two Weeks Notice was damn good too though.
Julia Roberts. I love her beautiful smile. It’d be tricky to act a role of an actress but she was fabulous.
At first I thought it was too unrealistic but in the end I didn’t care. The conference scene! Ahhh. I repeated that scene over and over again.
Spike, William’s flatmate was so disgusting… But I guess he turned out to be a nice man in the end. lol.
I was also happy that Ronan Keating’s “When You Say Nothing At All” was used more than once in the movie.
