Titanic 3D

If you didn’t know already, Titanic will be rereleased in cinemas very, very, friggin soon. If you aren’t planning to go to the cinemas and watching this epic romantic thriller, then . . . I can not.

This is Titanic!

Titanic is a film directed by James Cameron, staring Leonardo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet. It was released in 1997 to sold-out theatres everywhere. The public assumed this film was going to tank, but it ended up breaking records for the highest grossing film of all time.  Things like this make me laugh. I love a good “haha, I proved you wrong” story. It stood as the highest grossing film for over ten years before getting beaten by James Cameron’s own film Avatar. I predicted it was going to happen due to its high ticket prices, but that didn’t mean I was happy about it. Don’t get me wrong, Avatar was great, but come on, better than Titanic? I don’t think so. The last time I saw Avatar was in the cinemas.  

The film is about a wealthy girl, lost, and trapped in her class who falls for a boy from a lower social class.

Here is a comment from a friend of mine that shares the same passion (and more) towards that film:

Sarahisawesome: cried the whole time  and god dammit there was enough room on that door!!!!!!!! 😀

I barely graduated out of elementary school when I saw this film. The ending scared the crap out of me. I went to sleep shivering under my covers. Disney had be believing that all movies had a happy ending. That was not happy at all! At that age I didn’t see the actors in the film, I saw the characters. So if a certain character dies, I would believe that I would never see that face again.

This is the type of film that will tear at your heart strings not just for the romance, but for the entire atmosphere and extras. This film alone won 11 Oscars including Best Picture and Best Actor. It stayed in theatres for ten months! That’s nearly an entire year!

I’ll see you at the cinemas. Popcorn and all.

As any stan would say:
Bow to this film. Bow.
Your film could never.

Leonardo DiCaprio has never looked better.

Baby Luck can get you Anywhere

I was surprised to find out that Baby’s Day Out was a bomb at the box office. This was one of those movies that my school teachers decided to repeatedly play on the last day of school before school holidays. It wasn’t a problem as the response of the class was overwhelmingly positive. I bet my teachers grew tired of this movie.

Baby’s Day Out was written by John Hughes who is famous for his 80s brat-pack movies such as The Breakfast Club or Sixteen Candles. It stars twins Adam Robert & Jacob Joseph Worton as Baby Bink Cotwell. Baby Bink belongs to a rich socialite family in New York. He lives in a mansion and is mostly taken care of by his nanny. He loves to read ‘Baby’s Day Out’ with his nanny.

 

You dress your baby boy like a girl, Mrs. Cotwell!

 

Mrs. Cotwell decides to get his photograph taken for the social newspaper and hires a downtown photographer to take it. The photographers turn up in the worst disguises ever. He even ask to be alone with the baby. I don’t think it’s a good judgement call to leave your child with three creeps but Mrs. Cotwell does what she’s told. When she returns her baby has disappeared and a ransom note of 5 million dollars is left behind.

 

Do you take pictures or play golf?

 

I find it amusing that the baby doesn’t shed a single tear at the fact that he’s being taken away from familiar surroundings and away from people he recognises. The three dinguses take him to his apartment. Dingus no. 1 falls asleep besides the baby which gives him the chance to escape. Baby Bink enters locations and vehicles that he sees in the book ‘Baby’s Day Out’. The kidnappers chase after him, and in result; many slap-stick sequences ensue.

He takes the bus.

A department store’s care centre.

A ride in a taxi cab.

The Zoo – I really hope this is just a set because if animals are to be caged it must be outdoors with plently of room to roam around!

At a downtown park . . .

. . . And a building construction site.

The slapstick comedy isn’t particularly funny, but it’s entertaining because these guys deserved everything that was coming to them. If you enjoy watching Home Alone, you’ll definitely like this movie. I really hope no one missed out on watching this when they were a child. It’s light. It’s fun. And the baby is the cutest, baby, EVA!

I got weepy at the end when the mother finds her child. I’m beginning to think I’ll cry at any movie about a mother and her baby. I consider this movie to be THE BABY MOVIE. An underated classic of the 90s.
