Movie Curiosity: Vicky Cristina BarcelonaPosted on: 2008-08-02 10:45:49
This morning, I finally managed to finish <a type="amzn">No Country For Old Men. It was great. One of those genre overlapping movies that doesn't fit into any one particular category. You might say it was basically a "chase" movie (as the Coen brothers called it).
The bad guy in that movie is "Javier Bardem":http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000849/. He's so good at it. Really great. As it turns out, he is going to be in "Vicky Cristina Barcelona":http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0497465/ as well.
It's a little deja vÃ¹ with what "Gerard Butler":http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0124930/ did with "300":http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0416449/ and "P.S. I Love You":http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0431308/. One minute, the guy is a total ultimate badass putting fear and animosity into the hearts of any intelligent soul, the next he's the reason all the lady's are wishfully sighing and getting all teary-eyed.
His performance in this movie will be a very interesting contrast to what we've seen of him in NCFOM.
fn1. Considering that I've only seen him in one other thing, my scope is limited. You might already know he's a great actor.
