Movies based on true story

The Blind Side. – directed by John Lee Hancock

Sandra Bullock won Best actor for the Oscar award. Very good acting. The Blind Side is based on the remarkable true story of Baltimore Ravens offensive left tackle Michael Oher. A homeless black teenager, Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron) has drifted in and out of the school system for years. Then Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock) and her husband, Sean (Tim McGraw), take him in, transforming Michael’s life and theirs. With help from his new-found family, tutors and coaches, he realizes his potential as a student and football player.

The real kind Touhy family. They are really a very kind rich people who not being racism and change a kid’s life.

Next was The Invictus – directed by Clint Eastwood

The film tells the inspiring true story of how Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela joined forces with the captain of South Africa’s rugby team to help unite their country. Mandela’s life was taken away for 27 years in Ruben Island prison for being arrested and convicted of sabotage and other charges. Newly elected President Mandela knows his nation remains racially and economically divided in the wake of apartheid. Believing he can bring his people together through the universal language of sport, Mandela rallies South Africa’s rugby team as they make their historic run to the 1995 Rugby World Cup Championship match.

The real Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. The president of South Africafrom 1994 to 1999.

He was a prisoner who became a president. To unite his country, he asked one man to do the impossible.

The real Francois Pienaar

A former rugby player who captained and played flanker for the South African Springboks national rugby union team.. He led the Springboks to victory in the 1995 Rugby World Cup with inspired by Mandela.

I likey one sentence of Invictus Poem by William Ernest Henley.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Movies that worth watching

Had a movie marathon

1st was up in the air by Jason Reitman
I feel like I become more motivate do things that I wanted to long time ago after watching it. 🙂 there’re some qoute and lines in the movie which I find it quite interesting and nice.

Went into wonderland. Alice in the wonderland by Tim Burton

It wasn’t the same story like what we watch Alice when we are young. It is actually some sort like part 2 of alice of wonderland which telling the story of grown up 19-year-old Alice returns to the magical world from her childhood adventure, where she reunites with her old friends and learns of her true destiny: to end the Red Queen’s reign of terror.

Storyline okokler but I like the make-up of Helena Bonham Carter. Nice. Whenever there’re Tim Burton’s movie we will definitely see his wife Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp as the casts wan 🙂

Hachiko: A Dog’s Story by Lasse Hallström
It has been a while I never see Richard Gere. Mummy’s idol hehe
Akitas, a japanese dog which very loyal to the owner. Yee U can consider of getting urself an akitas after Max end his life. 😛

A true story about An American adaptation of a Japanese tale about a loyal dog named Hachiko. This very special friend would accompany his master to the train station every day and return each afternoon to greet him after work. Sadly his master departs one day, passes away and never returns to the station. Hachiko faithfully returns to the same spot at the station the very next day, and every day for the next nine years to wait for his beloved master. During his daily visits, Hachiko touches the lives of many who work near and commute through the town square. He teaches the local people love, compassion and above all unyielding loyalty. Today, a bronze statue of Hachiko sits in his waiting spot outside the Shibuya station in Japan as a permanent reminder of his devotion and love.
