day 346

#485 Breakfast club
1985 movie(god,im way too young!),five high school students meet in detention, where they pour their hearts out to each other, and discover how they have a lot more in common than they thought. To the outside world they were simply the Jock, the Brain, the Criminal, the Princess and the Kook, but to each other, they would always be the Breakfast Club. Although I was expecting this movie to be, let's say, boring, it was actually good. The actors were really well chosen for their roles, each and every one of them acted so great that you can't avoid liking them in general. Detention and high school life may be themes used in films way too many times, but I think this movie deserves it. What makes this film rise above the rest is the character development. Every character in this film is three-dimensional. They all change, in one way or another, by the end of the film. Whether or not things remain the way they are long after this film ends is unknown, and that adds to the rama. The most important scene in this film is when the characters, as a group, all open up to one-another and describe the hell that their daily school routines are in a personal fashion. Nobody likes the role they must inevitably portray in the high-school scene, but the fact is, it is often inescapable. This film gives the viewer some insight into how the other people around them might have felt during that particular time in their lives.
"Andrew: We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all."

#484 Away we go
Well,I was reading some reviews on imdb and have a look at what I just found:
"This film is about an expecting couple who travels around the country to try to find a perfect place to start their family.
"Away We Go" is slow and plain. The characters and the story are not developed enough to make me care about them. I almost feel that the couple is being irresponsible by travelling around according to their moment's fancy. I just cannot connect with their mindset at all, and hence I find the whole film a pointless and tedious bore. The only redeeming feature is Maggie Gyllenhaal's enchanting performance as a new age person, which consolidates her already strong CV.
"Away We Go" is such a disappointment, especially when compared to the strength of Sam Mendes' last effort, "Revolutionary Road".
Truth be told,I can't agree more. Only Maggie's performance is good, she was chosen for that role, and she succeeds her purpose: she makes you hate her as a character. Oh, and Chris Messina is in this film, not that he has such a big part, but you know who he is,he played in Julie & Julia and in Devil, so I just have to like him.

"Tom Garnett: It's all those good things you have in you. The love, the wisdom, the generosity, the selflessness, the patience. The patience! At 3 A.M. when everyone's awake because Ibrahim is sick and he can't find the bathroom and he's just puked all over Katki's bed. When you blink, when you blink! And it's 5:30 and it's time to get up again and you know you're going to be tired all day, all week, all your fucking life. And you're thinking what happened to Greece? What happened to swimming naked off the coast of Greece? And you have to be willing to make the family out of whatever you have."
