It’s Friday once again and I’ll be bringing you the movie selections for the weekend. This time, it’s all about “Django Unchained” and “Hyde Park on Hudson”, two movies that I’ve awaited for a long time. Here is what these are all about:
Recently awarded “Best Supporting Actor” (Christoph Waltz) and “Best Screenplay” at the Golden Globe Awards, “Django Unchained” has already been released in the USA, on December 25th, but its Romanian premiere is today, January 18th. It is a period film about slaves and a couple of brave men willing to fight the slave hunters and merchants. An excellent performance by Jamie Foxx (Django), a slave who breaks free with the aid of a bounty hunter, Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz). The two decide to work together in order to locate the Brittle brothers, three killers working for a plantation owner, Calvin Candie as Leonardo DiCaprio. The movie is full of action, violence and drama. Also, great special effects and excellent acting! Hats off to Quentin Tarantino for producing this work of art!
Talking about the lives of US presidents, “Hyde Park on Hudson” tackles the story of good old FDR, or Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the 32nd president of the USA. To be precise, the movie is about a royal visit, that of King George VI and his wife, Queen Elizabeth. This is an important historical event, because King George VI is the first British monarch to visit American soil. This was also done as a political way to increase popularity and support for the UK, just before the Second World War. The movie also talks about a love affair between FDR and his sith cousin, Margareth Suckley. Arriving a little late in Romania, the US premiere took place on the 7th of December. The movie is not the best period piece, but it’s still interesting to see Bill Murray in the role of a great American president!
Well, these are all the interesting movies to see this weekend. I truly recommend the first one! Please remember to like, comment share and/ or subscribe! Cheers!
