Cool Video: “Elysium” looks surprisingly interesting…

As much as I hate Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, I think the sci-fi/action movie, “Elysium”, looks surprisingly interesting. I remember seeing the movie, “District 9”, in theater when it first came out, and loving that film. Count me in for this one.

Check out the trailer in the link below.

Jodie Foster wasn’t worthy of the Cecil B. DeMille award anyways…

Yes, I did watch the Golden Globes last night. I was pretty happy with most of it. The awards went to the right people, I thought the winners gave great acceptance speeches but of course, despite Jodie Foster’s trainwreck of an acceptance speech when she won the Cecil B. Demille award, I didn’t think she deserved that award to begin with. Why? Because she was never that great of an actress and director to begin with. I only liked a few of her films in her career. For example, she was good in “Taxi Driver”, “Silence of The Lambs”, “Nell”, “The Beaver”, and “Panic Room” were good. She’s not worthy of that award. I thought it was pretty insane to give it to her.

There are plenty of other more deserving actors, actresses, and film directors who deserve to get it. Meryl Streep never got hers yet, hers is long overdue. There are plenty more to name.

Last night’s Globes was an okay show.

HBO’s “Girls” is a really great show, and I’ll admit, I’ve watched most of season 1. That show is what I’ll watch when “Game of Thrones” is over with on Sundays. Lena Dunham and “Girls” deserve all the praise. I want to get the first season of “Girls” on DVD soon. “Girls” is pretty addicting.

“Homeland” on Showtime is a great show too, even though I only watched that show a little bit, not back to back. I’ll follow the rest of that show soon.

Mel Gibson needs to win Oscar for “The Beaver” in 2012…

Well, I finally got to see, Mel Gibson’s latest movie, “The Beaver”, from Netflix DVD rental last night. Well you know what? I fuckin’ LOVED the movie. It’s definitely one of the best films of 2011 and pretty high up on the list in the top 15. It was a perfect film all around, the writing was phenomenal, perfect script. The movie was entertaining.

Of course, I was blown away by Mel Gibson’s performance in this movie. His performance is what impressed me the most. Mel plays Walter Black, who is CEO of a company he works for called, Jerry Co. He is suffering depression and mental illness. He is kicked out of his family’s home and turns suicidal. He found a hand puppet of a Beaver which he uses to talk to, as a way to help get him out of his depression and make him become a better person.

Walter talks to this Beaver puppet everywhere he goes  ’cause it keeps him going in life and helps him become the man he was once was before his depression. If he doesn’t have the Beaver puppet, he’ll become a different man. While him having a Beaver puppet is weird and insane as it sounds, it helped get him his family back,and it helped made him fall back in love with his wife again. Walter’s son (Porter, played by Anton Yelchin) is suffering the same depression his father’s going through and they don’t get along as family.

Mel’s role in this movie can have different emotions. It can get pretty dark, but it can also be very enjoyable and comedic at times. I believe Mel signed on to this movie ’cause it reminded  him of how he is in real life. We all know that Mel has personal problems in real life, Mel maybe suffering depression for real and it’s possible he did this movie to help him become a better person himself. To help straighten himself out.

Do I forgive and forget Mel from all the trouble Mel’s been through? After seeing this movie, I think I will forgive Mel. We all make mistakes in life. It’s all about learning from them and moving forward. Despite his personal problems from the anti-semitic rants to his battles with his ex-wife Oksana, I really think he deserves an Oscar for this movie.

If the Academy gives him the snub from getting a nomination, I’ll be disappointed with them and will not bother watching the Oscars, if he’s not in. There’s a lot of speculation that the Academy wouldn’t allow him to get a nomination because of his troubled past. Think about it, Mel getting an Oscar would help make him a better person.

The Oscar nominations should be revealed very soon, and I think there’s a pretty good chance he’ll get a nomination for this movie. I would seriously suggest you all to check this film out.
