This is my favourite Brad Pitt movie that you probably haven't seen. Why is that? God only knows. I guess it didn't do so well in theatres? I can't really remember. Maybe 'cause it's a bit long? Whatever the reason, get over it and see it. Brad Pitt's good and all, but the main attraction here is Anthony Hopkins. Now there's a real man. Something about his voice... I just love him. Especially when he loses his temper, oh my how I love that.
What's it about? It's about a man (Anthony Hopkins) who's turning 65 (who's this billionaire/cool guy) and he is visited by Death (who has taken the form of Brad Pitt's body) . Death wants to see what the world is like, so he visits Anthony Hopkins and asks him to be his guide for awhile before Death must take him away with him. What happens? Anthony Hopkins' daughter falls in love with Death - and, oh dear, Death falls in love with her! What will happen? Ah, well you have to go watch it. I can't tell if that's the worst description of this movie ever or a really intriguing pitch to make you want to see it. Either way, I am all about this movie. Just love it.
I was gonna livetweet watching it with my mom the other day, but only came up with the idea half way through the movie, during the sex scene. These were some of her gems:
The hashtag would have been: #meetjoeblacksexscenewithmom
“Holy! Look at his body!”
“Whoa, careful! He’s a dead guy, girl!”
“Just remember, dead people can come back and do you.”
“Dead people are very gentle, nuh?”
Maybe those aren't actually that funny, but I was losing it. She says the perfect things sometimes and I love it.
Anyway, see this movie! Go!
(Ugh, I shouldn't have told you how long it was. That's gonna make you not want to see it. But it really doesn't feel like three hours, I swear. I got my mom to stay up until past 1:30am 'cause she was so into it and she usually starts complaining to go to bed at 11:30pm max.)
