Black Swan, 127 Hours, The King's Speech

Oscar Movies:

True Story, Terrifying, Dark, Artistry, Crowd-Pleaser, Masterpiece & Entertaining....

Just like those I’ve just watched for the past few weeks back. They are Black Swan, 127 Hours and The King’s Speech and I think these 3 movies are somehow crowd-pleaser. Short personal review for these 3 movies below...

Black Swan: A ballet dancer (Nina – Portman) wins the lead in "Swan Lake" and is perfect for the role of the delicate White Swan - Princess Odette - but Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy.... for the lead. Nina slowly loses her mind as she becomes more and more like Odile, the Black Swan. -Terrifying Movie-

The King’s Speech: The story of King George VI of Britain, the father of Queen Elizabeth II. However, the film chooses to go beyond the story of a stuttering prince who became a king, and focuses on the relationship between Bertie and his speech therapist, Lionel. The cinematography is stunning and although the movie is predictable from the start, it is without a doubt a finely crafted historical drama. -Crowd-Pleaser-

127 Hours: A mountain climber becomes trapped under a boulder while canyoneering alone near Moab, Utah and resorts to desperate measures in order to survive. Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers, family, and the two hikers he met before his accident. 127 Hours is a prefect heart-warming, inspiring and especially based on a true story drama. -Triumphant True Story-
