Film Of The Day: Walk The Line

There have been a lot of music biopics out there, but this is my favorite one. They surprisingly did a great job with this movie, and stayed pretty faithful to Johnny Cash’s history. The film, “Walk The Line”, which stars Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon, focuses on the earlier days of Johnny Cash. It gives you more insight on Johnny’s rise to fame, his relationship with June Carter, and also getting signed to Sun records.

The movie was beautifully done all around. Amazing cinematography, the acting was well done by everyone in the film, plus most importantly of all, it was the music that made the movie work. Joaquin and Reese really did all the singing for this movie, and they did a good job. I can’t think of no other actor who can play the young Johnny other than Joaquin. Joaquin was the perfect match. This movie is entertaining throughout, especially the scene where Johnny tries to audition to get signed with Sun records. I also loved the scene where Johnny wrote “Folsom Prison Blues”. Whether you never listened to Johnny Cash or if you’re a longtime fan, this film is for everyone, either way. One thing to keep in mind though, that not all of this movie is happy and lovable. There’s a lot of pretty dark scenes in this film ’cause this film concentrates a lot on Johnny’s alcoholism and short temper problems.

I’ve seen this film too many times, and I could watch this 20 times a day, and would never get bored of it. This film is definitely in my top 10. Joaquin’s best role for sure, and James Mangold sure as hell delivered a masterpiece.

Report: Reese Witherspoon hit by 84 year old driver…

Talented actress, Reese Witherspoon, was out for a jog this morning in Santa Montica, California, and suddenly, Reese was hit by a car. The driver happened to be an 84 year old woman. She is okay as her injuries are not serious.

More on the story, here.

Glad she’s gonna be okay. I like her. She’s been in some good flicks, especially, “Walk the Line”, which is what she is most famous for.

She got lucky. Things could have been worse for her. In my opinion, I think the elderly driving should be illegal. Reese could have been killed.

Report: Reese Witherspoon to play music legend, Peggy Lee!!!!

Oscar winner, Reese Witherspoon is set to play jazz legend Peggy Lee, for a biopic film. Reese played June Carter for the “Walk the Line” Johnny Cash biopic, and now Reese gets her chance to star the leading role in a biopic film.

I don’t know much about Peggy Lee, but this is an interesting role for Reese. This also sounds like another Oscar nomination for Reese. Reese is the perfect choice to play Peggy ’cause they both look almost exactly alike!
