I’ve always been a fan of magic, The powerful to create something using powers that others don’t have for spectacular affect. Though I think Roald Dahl said it best when he explained that those who don’t believe in magic will never see it. How many of the films below can you work out?
I’ve done so many film quizzes since this early feature on New York, that I thought I’d continue the bloggerversary theme by putting films that just blew me away when I first saw them. Originally I thought about putting a mix of good and bad films, but I’ll save the shockers for another day. Whether they had me in hysterics, the edge of my seat, in deep thought or close to tears, these films really left an impression when I first saw them. Unsurprisingly I couldn’t fit them all into one post, so look out for part 2 soon.
Dreams feel real while we’re in them. It’s only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange.
Dominic Cobb (Leonardo Di Caprio) in the brilliantly thought-provoking science fiction heist film Inception (2010). Directed by Christopher Nolan, the film won four Academy Awards, raked in over $820 million and is considered a hugely imaginative modern masterpiece. I’m a huge fan of the English writer/director. You can also find other films of his on my blog, with The Dark Knight, Memento and The Prestige.
As one of the finest actors of his generation, it’s time Christian Bale was honoured here in a quiz. See how you do for the six films that highlight his wonderful range. Do you have a favourite? How did you score? As always your comments are welcome.
With the release of the highly anticipated film Under the Skin, it’s a perfect time to highlight its star Scarlett Johansson. With blonde bombshell looks, a huskily velvet voice and a glamorous aura that dates back to classic Hollywood, Johansson has still managed to carve out a serious and respected career that showcase her talents as an actress. See how well you do at working out six of her films.
