'World Trade Center' is leading a 'Movie of the Year' poll and I think we
should all vote for it here. Stone will be getting the Best Director Award
at the same event and it would be VERY NEAT if his film won Best Picture
as well. Please Vote!

I've just voted. I'm so glad for Oliver. He deserves the best. He's a genius Very Happy . Tomorrow I'm going to the cinema to see the movie.




He looks good here, doesn't he?

There is also Miami Vice at the cinema in my town but I'll go to see it next week (I hope it will still be on).
Colin is gorgeous as usual. Ok, I have to admit it; I'll see this movie only because of Colin. It's not my kind of film.





But, tomorrow is Oliver Stone Day Very Happy

I'm going to see 'World Trade Center' again tomorrow as well. It'll be
the third (and more than likely) last viewing for me in the theaters.
Don't see 'Miami Vice'!!! Colin looks horrible in it, and Mann REALLY
blew everything in the film. By far his worst post-The Keep effort. In
fact, 'Miami Vice' will end up being the worst film of the year for me.

Miami Vice is so bad? Anyway, I'm going to see it because I am a BIG fan of Colin and it seems that I will watch any movie he makes (I know it sounds stupid but I'm telling the truth). So, I'm going for Colin not for the film which is not the sort of film I like. As a matter of fact, I understand it's not an 'important' movie, like our "ALEXANDER" Very Happy , but what can I do? I like Colin Farrell very, very much.

joanna,

You will like World Trade Center. It is a very good film. It's a different type of film than we are used to seeing from Oliver Stone. But, the story is good and the acting is very strong. I cried through it the first time I saw it. I live in the Eastern part of the United States, so the film really went to the core when I saw it. But it is done in a way that does not push the viewer over the edge. It is handled very sensitively.

I think it is a film that people will remember for a long time.

Miami Vice is pretty good, but not great. If you do like Colin Farrell then you might like it. I do like his films, as well. It is not Alexander and his character is not as challenging as ATG was. His ATG is a much better performance in my opinion. I guess most any actor can play a police detective. It's a rare thing for an actor to get a role as good as ATG and play it well. His portrayal of Alexander was definetely a jewel.

Ingmar Bergman once said about Tarkovski's films (not sure if it was about a particular one, anyway): "Those seems to be authentic miracles."
I can only be agree with all that... and looking WTC, I thought just like that: it was like a miracle, is almost unbelievable you could do such a powerfull film experience with such elements. I've seen dramas of disasters and confining spaces, and it's really difficult to touch or achieve something poetical and truthfull from it. WTC is just a miraclous film, happens by miracle in front of my eyes. Besides of the fact... this overwhelming story is almost incredible, like Jimeno character yells it desperated at one point, "I can't believe this is happening". Is a story of survival and bravery. Things that seems to be ridiculous for some people these days...
We need a sense of wonder every day, the capability of surprise, the celebration of compassionate acts, acts of survival, the defense of life without thinking.
I don't want to ruin this moment, I will not say anything else...
