Movie Monday is a new feature I decided to host on my blog.
From now on, Mondays will be reserved for my ramblings about movies I watched lately.
Since watching movies is what I really like to do in my spare time, I tought Movie Mondays would be a great addition to my book blog, especially when so many movies nowadays is inspired by or based on a book.
This week I want to talk about two movies I watched and they both happen to be inspired by books. First one being The Revenant and the second being The Danish Girl.
In whole honesty, the first and main reason I decided to watch this movie was the one and only: Leonardo DiCaprio. The second reason was that I knew it was something my boyfriend would like.
I was right. He loved it! But I loved it too! I loved the story, I loved the nature we saw in the movie, I loved all the action scenes, effects, just everything about this movie, but what I liked the most were acting performances. I think both Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy should win Oscars this year because theye were AMAZING.
Maybe the movie lenght is a bit too long but I understand why it is so.
If you have a chance I suggest you to go and watch it because you won’t regret it.
I pressume that the female audience don’t feel a rush when it comes to seeing this film, but there is a great chance you will love it more then you think you will. I know that situation happened to me.
The Danish Girl
Going into this movie I didn’t quite know what to expect. I knew it was a movie about the first transgender woman but didn’t know anything about her.
This movie has such a beautiful story. It woke my emotions and I cried several times while
watching, even though I am not the one who cries easily (the train scene was just so sad).
Eddie Redmayne was amazing in playing his role, and his coleague Alicia Vikander was great. Alicia is not only a good actress, but is also very beautiful to watch. I hope to see her in more movies in the future.
I recommend this one highly.
If you ask me which one is better, I would have to say The Danish Girl has a story, but overall I think The Revenant is better in quality and performance.
I have to admit that I am a HUGE Leo Di fan so there is a slight chance that I am subjective here.
