Leap Year – Amy Adams gets it on with Ozymandias

Posted by LiveFor on November 12, 2009

leapyearEveryone loves Amy Adams don’t they. She was great in Drop Dead Gorgeous and funny in Enchanted. Matthew Goode has been in loads of British TV dramas and was Ozymandias in Watchmen.

Now they are in a new movie, which promises to break out from all the romantic movie cliches you usually get in a film like this.

When their four-year anniversary passes without a marriage proposal, Anna (Adams) decides to take matters into her own hands. Investing in an Irish tradition that allows women to propose to men on February 29th, Anna decides to follow her boyfriend Jeremy (Adam Scott) to Dublin and get down on one knee herself.

But airplanes, weather and fate leave Anna stranded on the other side of Ireland, and she must enlist the help of handsome and surly Declan (Matthew Goode) to get her across the country. As Anna and Declan bicker across the Emerald Isle, they discover that the road to love can take you to very unexpected places.

My mistake. It does have all those romantic movie cliches you have come to expect from these kind of movies. Anna meets surly Declan. They argue, get on each others nerves, a bit of slapstick, they’ll probably get all their clothes wet or something and have to spend the night together in an uncomfortable position (like the back of a volkswagon!) They’ll argue some more, he won’t tell her something important, they get closer and fall for each other, then that important thing he didn’t say crops up and she runs away or tells him to get stuffed. She meets her intended but at the last minute Declan will turn up on the back of a tractor or something and reference something from earlier in the movie. The end.

Oh and there will be some crazy stereotypical Irish folk, Guinness, and a scene involving a cow or another animal with hilarious consequences.

I wrote that last two paragraphs without watching the trailer. Then I watched the trailer…sigh!

Off the top of my head I’m getting 27 Dresses, The Proposal, PS I Love You, The Ugly Truth, Pretty Woman, Notting Hill, How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days, Along Came Polly, The Holiday, Wedding Planner, Made of Honour, My Best Friend’s Wedding, The Wedding Date and so on and so forth….note to self: Stop watching so many romantic comedies. Did I miss any?

Posted by LiveFor on July 25, 2009

Another cool interview. Tarantino talks about Inglourious Basterds, Brad Pitt, romantic comedies (he enjoyed The Proposal), writing films, James Bond and why he picks the songs for his films. Keep watching until the very end as there is gun play and death!

Ryan Reynolds is Buried

Posted by LiveFor on June 25, 2009

After playing Deadpool in X-Men Origins:Wolverine and then starring opposite Sandra Bullock in romantic comedy The Proposal, Ryan Reynolds will next be seen in something a little darker.

According to Variety is going to star in Buried, playing a civilian contractor who’s kidnapped in Iraq and awakens buried in a coffin in the desert, armed only with a cell phone, a candle and a knife.

Rodrigo Cortes will direct a script by Chris Sparling. Production will begin this month in Barcelona.

The picture will shoot entirely in Spain, which is home to Cortes, best known for directing The Contestant.

Reynolds apparantly took the indie film role to improve his acting range in the movie with a claustrophobic premise, and one in which he holds the screen through most of the picture.

It will be good to see Reynolds in something that is quite different to films he has previously starred in.
