One Note Actors and Actresses

It seems like Johnny Depp only does roles that have that “quirky, weird, strange” factor. We get it, Johnny. You don’t have to beat us with a dead horse, so to say. I like Edward Scissorhands, Benny and Joon, and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape but I’m just tired of seeing the same character over and over again. It’s to the point where I won’t watch his stuff anymore because it’s just predictable.

I’ve never been a fan of Jennifer Aniston. To me, she’s just one of those actresses who can be replaced by another actress and I wouldn’t miss her. Maybe it’s because she always picks the rom-coms, and I’m just not big on those.

Seth Rogen. If it’s the standard nasty comedy with sex, drugs or alcohol, and people who think they’re funny, you can almost bet he’ll be in it.

Jonah Hill is pretty much like Seth Rogen, only slightly more annoying.

Michael Cera is the guy who always plays the “oh, I’m such a nerd. Let me stand in the corner and be awkward” character. Blah. That character has been beaten into the ground!

À l’intérieur

INSIDE-2007-05-g

I wish I spoke French, but unfortunately, I don’t. So, the title of this post is actually Inside. I decided to do this post because this is probably my favorite French movie…ever. While I haven’t seen a boatload of French cinema, I can say that I enjoyed this one more than all the others I’ve seen.

The story is simple. It involves a young pregnant woman whose home is broken into, in an attempt to take her unborn child. I mean, imagine yourself as the main character and you’ll see how frightening this film really is. She was in a car accident, where her husband was killed. A couple months later, Sarah (played by Alysson Paradis) is preparing for the birth of her child when a mysterious woman shows up at her door. This woman is played by Beatrice Dalle and let me tell you, Dalle played the strange, scary woman so well. She is so genuinely creepy (I still get the chills when I think about this movie, because of her!) and is a major reason I love this movie so much.

I don’t want to give away the ending, so you’ll just have to watch it for yourself if you haven’t already. I will definitely watch this movie again. It’s one of the few movies I’ve seen in a long time that has actually scared me. I look forward to what these guys offer up next!
