Film Review: I’m Still Here

So last night, I finally watched the movie, “I’m Still Here” on one of them ppv Movies On Demand things. Here is just a brief review.

This movie is about the mockumentary of actor, Joaquin Phoenix, retiring from acting to focus on a rap career. While Joaquin maybe looked at as a crazy and whacked out person in the media, I didn’t see that at all in the movie. Joaquin was actually seen pretty normal in this film. Yes, he was crazy in some parts but not that bad. What I saw in this film was a guy who is struggling to have a better life, he had a drug addiction with cocaine and other drugs. He changed his personality so people could be able to understand him as a person more. Joaquin may get angry and swear a lot in the film, but there is an emotional and sad part about him. The film showed his feud with the Spacehog frontman, Antony Langdon and Joaquin forms a friendship with rapper, P. Diddy Sean Combs. Through those scenes with Sean Combs, really showed the personality side of things with Joaquin.

The movie was not dark, it had some humorous moments of course, but the film was very serious in a way. The movie is definitely fictional, but I think the film exposed the real Joaquin Phoenix, that he might have a real drug problem like his brother River, had back in the day. Joaquin’s acting in this film was really good as usual, but he might get another Oscar nomination for Best Actor in this film, possibly.

I was pretty impressed with the film, liked it a lot.

Score for “I’m Still Here” (**** = 4 stars as in “excellent”)


BREAKING NEWS: Casey Affleck finally confesses that the Joaquin Phoenix rap act is a hoax!!!! Woah!!!

Well, well, well, look at what we have here. The public is getting onto to them so much that Casey Affleck, finally gave up and admitted that the, Joaquin Phoenix, insane like personality and rap career is all a hoax. Read the full article, here.

Now that everybody knows that this was all fake all along, Joaquin definitely will appear on Letterman next week as his normal self, (I hope).

If you actually think the music industry will sign Joaquin a record deal for rap music, please. A rap career would have never happened for him anyways.

This was all funny stuff though! It was fun while it lasted! I look forward to seeing, “I’m Still Here”. I knew he wasn’t retiring from movies from day 1.


Thought: My take on this whole Joaquin Phoenix thing…

So Joaquin Phoenix is set to return to David Letterman, next Wednesday night on the 22nd. Will I watch? Yes, definitely. Will Joaquin come out all fully bearded, long haired with sun glasses? I don’t think he will. I’m predicting Joaquin will come out with his own self and just act normal next time. Just to confuse people some more. In the video below, you see Joaquin talking with Miley Cyrus. Joaquin cut off his long hair, clean shaven again and all that. It takes a long time to grow it all back.

So what’s up with his weird personality and why is he being crazy? It’s a gimmick! Kind of like a wrestling character. He’s just doing what ever it takes to promote himself as an actor. To get himself recognized more. Yes, a lot of people are going to hate Joaquin’s gimmick or alter ego, he’ll get a backlash for it. It worked for Andy Kauffman back in his time of day. Andy went from hero to badguy in the entertainment media. I think this whole gimmick Joaquin doing was inspired by Andy Kaufman/Tony Clifton. Notice the similarities between Joaquin’s new gimmick and Tony Clifton?

It’s obvious that Joaquin’s retirement from movies was fake, I’ve been saying it all along. Joaquin kept signing on to new movie roles. He’s got a few up ahead of him.

So what’s with all the confusion with Joaquin possibly retiring from movies to do music? That’s the point of this whole thing. It was made to confuse people on purpose to get people talking. All of this is a ploy to help promote himself as an actor and his possible rap career if he’s serious about that too. I don’t take any of this stuff seriously. I don’t hate him for it, as I think all of this is very comical. I find it all hilarious. What’s even funnier is that people take it seriously, thinking it’s all real.

When Joaquin met with Miley in this video and he’s acting his own self, being normal. There’s your proof right there that his rap thing is all a gimmick.
