Ms Portman is on the move in the filming industry. Ever since the release of Black Swan, she has become the renowned star she was back in the days of Star Wars. Moreover, she will be featured in 3 more movies this year - No Strings Attached, Your Highness and most of all, the ever popular, most anticipating movie (for a geek like me XP)
First of all, I'm going to discuss about Black Swan. I know the movie was released last year but as your all know, Malaysia ain't no America. The movie was only released this week in the cinema. Even so, I don't bother watching it in the theaters for major scenes such as Portman's masturbation and the lesbian kissing scenes would definitely be cut out XP
Hey, I'm gay but those scenes are amazing which kinda makes me a bi...I'm sexually confused.
Regardless, the movie is superb! Bloggers like Vincent even featured about it. Natalie was nominated and won several awards for that movie. It has everything to do with the fragililty of the human mind and how easily it can be influenced by external forces. This would be an awesome case study for me when I'm a certified psychologist...hehe
Basically, Portman's character suffers a mental breakdown from the pressure exerted from her mother and her work as a ballet dance. The whole plot is poetic in conjunction with swan lake in which a virtuous princess is transformed into a sensual swan. (Go read the story on your own) There are several versions of the story btw.
Overall, the movie is one of the must watch movie of the century, right next to The Dark Knight. I would give it a 4.5 out of 5. It's nearly flawless.
Yesterday, me and my friends randomly chose to watch No Strings Attached. Coincidently, Ms Portman is in it again. I'm dazed by her beauty.
In this movie, she's a doctor seeking sex with Adam (Aston Kutcher) while leaving no strings attached because to her, having a relationship might be complicated to handle. Well, this is a typical romantic film meant for couples. I repeat, it is meant for COUPLES. Me and my friends (2 of them) felt awkward watching it with just us guys with no partner to hug and go "awww~" throughout the movie. Kinda sad~
However, the movie was so-so only. Natalie sort of portrays too much emotions here and the movie was kinda plain. It is hilarious with some of its scenes.
Hence, I would give it a 3.5 out of 5
Her pending movies for this coming few months would be a comedy by the title Your Highness and the action-packed . While I don't have much detail on the former, I am excited about the latter. Below is trailer no.2 for Thor. Hope you guys enjoy it. I know I myself and my lecturer did XD
