Lucky And Me

I actually have something to say

The King’s Speech (Movie Review) March 29, 2011

Filed under: Movies — Jessica @ 5:50 pm

I’m a huge fan of movies. So naturally, seeing at how this one took home many Academy Awards, I just had to see it. I know it’s rated R, but only for language (very funny language at that, too). I must say, Colin Firth did the best job in playing a stammerer, and Geoffrey Rush was so funny as the speech doctor, and I just always love Helena Bonham Carter, so the actors were great in this movie.

But there’s more to it. Surely, you know this movie has more to do with a man with a stammer. It’s about overcoming fear, it’s about the value of friendship, about what one could do for love, it’s about coming out, it’s about having a voice.

The screenplay, by David Seidler, is an inspiration for all. I think when I grow up, I’d like to write screenplays or be a director for movies.

I think this is the reason why The King’s Speech nabbed so many awards, instead of Inception, or True Grit, because the movies that are real, the ones that touch your heart, the ones that you know are true, tend to make a bigger impact on you than one that is supernatural or a Sci-fi thriller.

This is Lucky, and that’s all I have to say about The King’s Speech.


Inception September 26, 2010

I watched the movie, Inception, a loooong time ago, so I don’t know why I decided to talk about it now. Anyway, I was talking about it with some friends yesterday, so I thought it would be fun to let you guys know the characters.

But first, the plot:

This is the story of Don Cobb, who runs around with Arthur doing illegal jobs like stealing ideas out of someone’s memory/dream. Until one day, he comes across a man who wants him to do Inception (planting an idea in the mind). The man promises Cobb after this job, he can go home to his kids, (who he had to leave). Can Cobb and his crew accomplish the impossible?


Don Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio, Main Character)-

He’s a haunted man because he thinks he murdered his wife. So every time he’s on a “dream mission”, he keeps dreaming her up, even though she isn’t really there.

Arthur (Jordon Gordon-levitt, Dobb’s second in command)-

He’s the guy who makes sure everything is set in place for everything, kind of like a watch dog (in my opinion).

Ariadne (Ellen Page, a college girl)-

She is a new character they recruited. She is their…dream setter. She dreams up the setting, locations, details, etc., so Cobb can put fill it with his subconscious.

Eames (Tom Hardy, guy they needed to help carry out Inception)-

He’s part of Cobb’s crew they recruited.

Saito (Ken Watanabe, the asian man who gives Cobb the mission of Inception)-

There are a lot more characters, but I’ll just give you a few to keep you on your toes. This really is a great movie, so go watch it!
