Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton split thoughts…

I hardly ever speak on celebrity gossip stuff but I thought I would give my brief thoughts on this one. Yeah, I know a lot of people are gonna mistakenly accuse Helena Bonham Carter of marrying Tim Burton to boost her movie career but it’s not true!!! If people would get their facts right, Helena have been getting lots of movie roles long before the couple met! She also had plenty of roles on her own that weren’t directed by Tim. Helena can do fine on her own without Tim.

I do admire both of them. Helena’s a talented actress and Tim’s one of helluva director. It’s a shame that this couple split.

Being married in Hollywood must be tough. Celebrity divorces happen a lot. Must be tough being married to another famous person. Why do celebrity splits happen a lot???? Probably because both are working so much with their own careers that they don’t have time for each other… that could be a part of it. Also, I’m sure egos and jealousy gets in the way too.

I don’t think I could handle the Hollywood lifestyle. I like where I am now.

Film Review: The King’s Speech

Starring: Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush

Directed by: Tom Hooper

So today I decided to go see the  movie, “The King’s Speech”. Here is my review.

Plot/Synopsis: The story revolves around Prince Albert, Duke of York (Colin Firth) who is about ready to become King George the VIth. Prince Albert must prepare for a major speech when he becomes King George VI, must do a radio speech for a large audience. However, Prince Albert has a very bad speaking problem, aka, speech impediment. Prince Albert’s wife, Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter) tried to get her husband to work with a speech therapist named, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). Prince Albert must improve his speaking skills to prepare for the day he becomes, King George VI.

I saw this film because of the Oscar buzz, obviously. I wanted to see why it got the  most nominations. I can see why, because the film is really good. The movie was actually entertaining and fun. It has a very huge chance of sweeping up all the awards at the Oscars. Sorry to say. Of course, I was most impressed with Colin Firth’s acting. The man was amazing. Probably the best acting I’ve seen in a long time, so I know he will win Best Actor, no matter what happens. The script was really good, the drama actually kept me at the edge of my seat, and it kept me guessing. It’s a thinking movie for sure. To make the movie not boring, they added a lot of humor through it.

I know this a short review, but as long you love a film so much, there’s not much to say about it, since it is perfect and nothing wrong with it. The film was fantastic, and worth seeing. Definitely go check this one out.

Score for “The King’s Speech” = **** (4 stars as in “excellent”)

Brock wants to see the movie “The King’s Speech” next…

Next time I go to the mall to see a movie, the next flick I plan to see, is “The King’s Speech”. Everyone’s saying it’s really good and it’s creating a huge media buzz, so I think I’m going to check it out before the Oscars. As a matter of fact, I have seen most every flick nominated for “Best Picture” for the Oscars, except for two of them. I haven’t seen, “The King’s Speech” yet and “127 Hours”. I do want to see both films though. I’m gonna have to wait on DVD for “127 Hours” because that film is coming out on DVD sometime in March. “The King’s Speech” does look like an interesting movie and looking forward to seeing it.

We already knew that Helena Bonham Carter would get a role but didn’t know which role she would get, now we do.

Film is sounding good so far.

I wonder who Burton is going to get for the The Queen of Hearts, The Knave of Hearts and the King of Hearts. I also wondering who’s going to play the Duck and the Caterpillar.

Is Danny Elfman going to do the score for this film as well?

It wouldn’t surprise me if she’s playing Sarah Connor, it could be possible. Anyway, if they are going to use Sarah Connor for the new T4, I would rather get Lena Heady from the TV series.
