You're Beautiful...It's true

I watched Million Dollar Baby again, 3 of the world's most enthralling actors- Hillary Swank, Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman. An extraordinary story told by extraordinary people.

Clint Eastwood- who has stood the test of time, from the early days of Dirty Harry and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, and then successfully crossing over into directorhood. Once, one of the world's best-looking men, now ageing with grace realizing every dog has its day in the sun. Directing unforgettable movie after unforgettable movie- Unforgiven, Letters from Iwo Jima...

Hillary Swank- Whose face is, well, just beyond description and who is able to hold moods and tell entire plots with that face. I saw her in Freedom Writers and a few other movies. I think she's one of the world's most beautiful women (right alongside Nicole Kidman). I like white women? I like women. Finis.

Morgan Freeman- As consistent as coca cola, a perrenial favourite. That movie he did with Tim Robbins (Shawshank Redemption) remains one of my all-time choices. I sat and watched Million Dollar Baby and ran the gamut of human emotions- frustration, hope, triumph, joy, great sadness...

I thank God for movies and the world of wonders they produce. And to the other movie buffs out there, we're onto a good thing.

You know, I am still to watch that movie. Even when it came out on cable, I could not sit down to watch it.
What does it mean when I would rather watch Samurais slice each other into ribbons than watch two individuals pummel their faces into a pulp...male or female. had Hilary burst out a sword, I would have been in the theatres...and she does indeed have an interesting face.

A really great movie. At 33, Hillary Swank has already won two Oscars. Nuff said.

I haven't watched Million dollar baby becuase, i just don't like boxing.

But then teh shawshank redemption is a true classiq. Each time i watch films like this i wish nollywood could come up with original enduring stories.

This morning, i watched Mama Put on movie magic. It's a thirty minute drama, - Simple but novel story line, consise and refreshing. I wonder who produced it but i came away thinking - we are getting there.
