Andrew Garfield reveals "I am not OK."
Andrew Garfield feels lost. It's amazing how much can change in this celebrity's life after just one year. Months ago, it was announced that Andrew Garfield would not be returning to his extremely successful role as Spiderman, a role he deeply admired, "To be honest, taking Spider-Man felt like I was taking control of my path, in a weird way," he told USA Today. "I always wanted to be that character since I was 3 years old. That was absolutely part of my path." Garfield has been forced to make the best out of his situation, taking on roles that are far from the action packed superhero movies his fans fell in love with. He'll be starring in "99 Homes" at the Cannes Film Festival opening Friday in New York and Oct. 2 in Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston and Washington. The movie will expand to 50 cities by Oct. 9. He also just finished "Silence" in Taiwan with an expected release in 2016. Amazingly, two weeks ago he had a run in with two shutterbugs, or enthusiastically amateur paparazzi photographers. By simply asking them "Please don't," the photographers respected his wishes and didn't take pictures leaving it as "a very beautiful compassionate loving place". Garfield noted, "I speak to a lot of them whenever I get the opportunity," while graciously mentioning how much he respected them for respecting him,"We had a hug and they drove off." He doesn't want paparazzi surrounding him. He just wants to get back to his roots in England. I think the celebrity world is making him lose his normality. Garfield's relationship with the public has been rocky partly because they bombard him about his exclusive-yet-not so exclusive relationship with Emma Stone, "Having a relationship with the public is very confusing to me, maybe as an English person because I can't do the — I'm not very good at the Twitter," he says. "I really struggle with (promotion). I really want my work to be seen. I want people to see work I do, that's important to me. Because that feels like the best representation of who I am." And don't get him started on his follower-following ratio, "This idea of campaigning and getting followers and being liked — I'm a mess. Like everybody else, I'm just struggling through trying to make sense of this weirdness we're all in, the weirdness of being alive." Telling USA Today, he had a culture shock in the United States when he landed in the airport after being isolated in Taiwanese wilderness for his movie, "Silence". The celebrity magazine where gorgeously photoshopped people on the covers didn't sit well with him. He hinted at self-image problems, "I have panic attacks when I see the perfection that's on the cover. And I've been on those magazine covers — and it's only the 'best' photo, of course, they use." At the end of the day, "I'm not OK. I am not OK. That feels really good to say to you. I'm really not all right. I'm in the struggle of being a person. I haven't got anything figured out." I feel like he's so relatable, agreed?
Elizabeth Swann & Will Turner: Badass, Sexy Pirate Love
I'm not sure how many people saw it, but writing my Top 3 Disney Love Stories card reminded me of just how big a fan I am of the relationship between Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann from the Pirates of the Caribbean series. I think @MarySEW and @netchtiBates are right there with me ;) haha. So basically I just wanted to make a card entirely about them, so we can all relive the magic and revel in the badass awesomeness of our favorite movie couple :) Facing danger together, as usual. Will's puppy face here omg So close, and yet so far... this scene gets me with the sexual tension EVERY time. Of course, to remedy the sexual tension, here's them making out, making out, more making out, etc. How are they so sexy and adorable. Just casually being the best looking couple of all time... I love how Jack Sparrow's creepin' behind them in the last pic haha That time they decided to get married in the middle of a skirmish with undead pirates... if you like awesomeness, WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW <333 I seriously doubt there is any more awesome wedding in the history of film. If there is, somebody show it to me. How can you top getting married in the middle of an insane sword fight by a pirate captain, holding hands while slashing bad guys to bits (WHO HOLDS HANDS WHILE SWORD FIGHTING?!?), and then making out as battle rages all around you?!?!? Can this be my wedding? Plz help. Elizabeth's transformation from dainty lady to badass pirate is THE BOMB. Will Turner, how how HOW are you this sexy right now. Some tender moments... ugh, the way they look at each other <3 Elizabeth: "Did you honestly just tell me you don't like my new hat???" XD YES WILL TURNER I WILL WAIT FOR YOU FOREVERRRRRR Okay welp, this has been a brief fangirling sesh by me. Sorry for all the feels. Ahem. I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.
코로나19 때문에 떡상한 바이러스 재난 영화 5선
Editor Comment 개봉 당시엔 미래에 대한 경고였을 바이러스 재난 영화.국내 영화 <감기>와 더불어 해외 바이러스 재난 영화가 전 세계적으로 재조명되고 있다. 모두 영화보다 더 영화 같은 현실이 벌어지고 있는 지금을 예견하고 있기 때문이다. 이 영화들의 공통 관전 포인트는 눈으로 보이지 않는 바이러스를 극복해나가는 인간의 사실적인 모습들이다. <아이즈매거진>이 현 상황과 맞닿은 바이러스 재난 영화 5선을 준비해봤다. 현실과 비슷한 상황에 비춰 감탄하기보다는 영화가 인류에게 던지는 메시지에 집중해보며 감상해보길. 크레이지(The Crazies, 2010) 코로나19는 중국 우한의 바이러스 연구소에서 노출된 바이러스에 의해 감염이 시작되었다는 의혹이 있다. 아직 과학적으로 증명된 바는 없지만, 중국 연구소 직원들이 발표한 바이러스 유출 논문에 쓰여진 사례로 본다면 가능성이 농후한 일이기도 하다. 영화 <크레이지>는 인위적 실험과 관리 소홀로 인해 생긴 치명적 바이러스에 초점을 맞췄다. 감염 후 단 48시간 만에 미치게 이르게 되는 치명적 바이러스의 이름은 ‘트릭스’. 바이러스가 유출됐다는 사실을 알고 있던 정부는 군부대를 투입, 도시를 폐쇄하고 생존자를 전멸시키려 한다. 살인 광기에 휩싸인 생존자들과 도시를 전멸시키려는 정부를 상대로 필살적으로 탈출을 시도하는 주인공 데이빗과 그의 가족들. 반인륜적인 영화 속 정부의 결정이 과연 최선의 선택이었을지 생각하며 감상해보길 추천한다. 컨테이젼(Contagion, 2011) 코로나19로 인해 더욱 재조명되고 있는 영화, <컨테이젼>. 영화 같은 현실, 현실 같은 영화라 해도 과언이 아닐 정도로 전염병의 확산에 따른 인간의 공포와 사회적 혼란을 사실적으로 그려내 큰 공감을 불러일으키고 있다. 바이러스의 배경지는 홍콩. 미국인 베스는 홍콩 출장을 마치고 집으로 돌아가기 전, 공항 바에서 맥주 한 잔을 즐기면서 영화는 시작된다. 전염의 가장 직접적 경로인 손에 포커스를 맞춘 점과 영화 말미에 드러나는 바이러스의 경로가 박쥐의 변을 먹고 자란 돼지를 요리한 요리사로부터 시작되었다는 점이 코로나19 사태와 매우 닮아있다. 영화 속 명대사, “늑장 대응으로 사람들이 죽는 것보단 과잉 대응으로 비난받는 게 낫다고 생각합니다.”는 심각한 상황을 마주한 우리들에게 귀감이 될 만한 메시지를 주기도. 아웃브레이크(Outbreak, 1995) 1995년에 개봉된 ‘에볼라’ 바이러스를 다룬 영화, <아웃브레이크>. 1967년 아프리카 모타바 계곡 용병 캠프에 의문의 출혈열이 발생하고 수많은 용병이 죽는다. 미군은 용병들의 혈액만 채취한 뒤 폭탄을 투하해 그들을 몰살시킨다. 30년이 흘러 같은 지역에서 또다시 출혈열이 발생해 모두가 사망하고, 에볼라 바이러스가 숙주 원숭이를 통해 미국에 퍼지며 큰 위기에 빠지는 내용을 담고 있다. <아웃브레이크>는 전염병이 어떤 과정으로 발생, 확산되는지 조금 더 구체적이고 사실적이게 묘사됐다. 특히, 정부가 국민을 희생양으로 삼으려는 과정은 영화의 극적인 긴장감을 더해주는 관전 포인트. 나는 전설이다(I Am Legend, 2007) SF 소설계의 세기의 걸작으로 꼽히는 ‘리처드 매드슨’의 동명 베스트셀러를 원작으로 제작된 영화 <나는 전설이다>. 2012년, 인류의 멸망. 전 인류가 멸망한 가운데 과학자 로버트 네빌만이 살아남는다. 지난 3년간 그는 매일같이 또 다른 생존자를 찾기 위해 절박한 심정으로 방송을 송신한다. 그러나 그가 그토록 애타게 찾았던 생존자들은 더 이상 인간의 모습이 아니었다. 그들은 이상 바이러스에 감염되어 ‘변종 인류’로 변해 버린 것. 인류의 운명을 짊어진 네빌은 면역체를 가진 자신의 피를 이용해 백신을 만들어낼 방법을 알아내야만 하는 숙명을 짊어지게 되고 인류 최후의 전쟁을 치르게 된다. 놀랍게도 이 영화의 결말은 감독판과 극장판에 따라 두 가지로 나뉜다. 스포는 하지 않겠다. 시간적 여유가 된다면 두 결말의 차이점을 비교해 감상해보길. 캐리어스(Carriers, 2009) 정체불명의 바이러스로 오염된 세상. 호흡과 타액, 혈액으로 감염되는 치사율 100%의 바이러스가 삽시간에 퍼져 인류는 멸망 직전의 위기를 맞게 된다. 영화 <캐리어스> 속 주요 인물들은 바이러스를 피해 어렸을 적 부모님과 함께 즐거운 시간을 보냈던 해변가로 향하기로 하고, 살아남기 위해 규칙을 정한다. 이들이 자발적으로 정한 규칙은 바이러스에 걸린 사람은 돕지 않고, 함께 다니지 않는 것. 영화의 관전 포인트는 바로 이 부분이다. 인간이 극한의 상황에 치닫게 되면 생존본능에 충실한 생물체가 될 수밖에 없다는 현실적인 내용에 잠시 깊은 생각에 빠지게 만든다. 만약 당신이 영화 속 주인공이었다면 어떤 결정을 내렸을까? 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서
Why I Don't Buy the 'Begin Again' Hype
I might be late to the party, but if you haven't see Begin Again yet - don't. Please. If you really, really must see it, stop reading this immediately. Major spoiler alert. This movie was supposed to be great. It starred Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, and Adam Levine. It was set in Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. It had a stellar soundtrack. So where did it go wrong? First things first - are we supposed to like Mark Ruffalo's character? Sure he's artistic and depressed and 'is all about the music' but he's also a drunk dead-beat dad. He only comes back to life when Keira Knightley's character sings a half-catchy tune at open mic night in a dive bar. We rewind and see why she's singing her sad song in the first place and its a classic 'dating a musician who gets famous and cheats one me' story. Oy vey. She then is convinced by this hairy drunk man (yes, that's Ruffalo) to miss her flight back to London and record a record - without a record deal, recording studio, or any money whatsoever - and sleep on her friend's floor. Of course, Ruffalo is miraculously friends with C-Lo Green who pays for the entire recording process and everything works out. And during this entire process Knightley is able to teach Ruffalo's daughter that she'll probably get more guys if she dresses like a lady and suddenly the family is back together again. Knightley then gets a record deal! Dreams come true! But then of course she blows it off because she wants to give her music away and, with Ruffalo's blessing, she uploads her songs to the interwebs and gets a whopping 10k downloads in the first week. This does not happen. Not even in this world of YouTube stars and Kickstarters. There are such things as happy endings and big breaks, but I found the story ridiculous, the characters bland, and the portrayal of independent songwriters infuriating (as someone who has been involved in the music business and plans to pursue a career on the business side) Directors and script writers - stop trying to hide your 'meh' film under Keira Knightley's talent. Even she couldn't fix this one. The only positive thing I could say is that they didn't force a weird Ruffalo/Knightley love line. Even though there was that weird 15 minute long montage of them running through Manhattan together sharing an iPod? Did I totally miss the point of this movie or do you guys agree? I'd love for someone to convince me to like this!
