Blood Diamond

Many of you said Blood Diamond is a good movie to watch and I couldn’t agree more. From this movie, you’ll understand why people are fighting and using each other to gain profits from this so called rock; diamond and why it’s called BLOOD DIAMOND.

There are so much killing in this movie. You’ll wince I tell ya.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s acting skills has improved a lot (so is his built hehe; he looks HUNKY) but still I feel something is missing in his acting. Something is not right… I can’t pinpoint what is the problem… hmm maybe he didn’t show enough emotions. This is the first movie that I favour Jennifer Connelly. Good job woman.

For me, the true star of Blood Diamond is Solomon Vandy played by Djimon Hounsou. I’m gunning for Hounsou to win an Oscar for the Best Supporting category! FYI Hounsou counterpart, DiCaprio is also nominated for an Oscar for the Best Actor category (I don’t think he’ll win hehe).

This movie is rated 18PL (violence, etc) and yet I still shed some tears in the end. I’m becoming an emotional freak (like my mom).

Overall, I rate Blood Diamond 7.9/10. Worth it. Go watch it.

p/s: Would you believe it that I cried while watching Ugly Betty? *The part where her cute boss, Daniel said sorry to Betty* Yes I know I’m so weak. I’m so wreck! Can somebody mend my broken paip?

    A top post. Leonardo did lack something, but he is improving nevertheless. Wasn’t too impressed Hounsou caused I thought he was OTT in some scenes. Would like to see Alan Arkin winning the supporting actor Grammy.

    I watched it, too! Guess I can understand the whole story behind it. Haha… :battlingeyelashes: Jennifer Connelly looks a bit like Demi Moore in certain angle. What do you think? One thing for sure, Jennifer is prettier! I like her!!!

    BTW, what’s Ugly Betty?

    Been a fan of Leo since his 1st movie Basketball Diaries & hv not missed any of his ever since. I think he deserves an Oscar. Agree. Djimon is beau top to bottom hehe; so is Jen. Ugly Betty is a great watch isn’t it?

    Wuching, ahem 50-50 la

    Daniel, when’s the Grammy yeah?

    Saoirse, yup a little like Demi. I don’t quite fancy Demi as well.
    Ugly Betty is a new ‘drama’ in 8TV(b4 desperate housewives). It’s about a girl named Betty…horrendous looks but with a golden heart. This girl just won an Emmy the other day and this show just won an Emmy as well.

    Lex, hmmm NTV7 have The Making of Apocalypto today. I thought this movie is banned for sure.

    Angel, hello! I won’t miss the Oscar for anything!
    Yup Ugly Betty is nice (I’ve only watch the first epi).
    Ah I don’t mind. 🙂

    Amanda, why the ‘urge’ to watch twice? Yes he’s no more a pretty face. Leo = pretty face + good acting.
    I’ve no idea why my pili air terbuka while watching Ugly Betty. It’s not ‘that’ sad.
