Directed by : Sam Mender

Genres: Drama, Comedy



American Beauty is simply the most provocative movie Hollywood could possibly ever made.A 1000X zoom to American Post-Card Family.

American Beauty is combined this very naked truth with the stunning essentials,making this movie not only a provocative movie but also a rare fascination to eyes.It also translated desperation into the next level,the plot was grown superbly into the perfect mix of drama,comedy,and satire.Brilliant!

Beautifully acted,well made,and as sharp as razor.And American Beauty has proven in order to make a powerful movie,you dont need troops,soldiers,and epic proportions,with just a little taste of satire story,and good director,this beauty was made.

Australia (2008)

"Mrs. Boss! We gotta get those fat cheeky bulls into that big bloody metal ship!"

Rated: (PG-13)
Directed by: Baz Luhrmann
Casts : Nicole Kidman,Hugh Jackman
Genres: Action & Adventure, Romance, Mystery & Suspense



From the second,Baz Luhrmann launched the dazzling Moulin Rouge,and MTV-ish Romeo+Juliet,I can't find another director that literally describe my taste of movie except him.And after Australia's buzz surfaced,Australia officially became my most anticipated movie of 2008,more than The Dark Knight and Revolutionary Road combined.And the stake is high up in the air.

So,what happened?A powerful epic that previewing Australia's outback beauty,Luhrmann's style,and an exquisite acting ensemble,juiced into 5 moving storyline (Murder case,racism,conspiracy,love,and war).

As for me,Australia had already fulfill what I expected,epic set,romantic story,and larger-than-life presentation of Baz Luhrmann creativity.And again,for 3 hours,Luhrmann successfully amazed me,and adressing this movie and it's complication into a full stop.And I'll be damned if Australia did not make the cut for this year Oscar,at least,for it's technical superiority.
