Movie stars who are not American and some surprising ones who actually are .,.,.

We were talking about Mel Gibson movies the other day and it made me think how many actors we think are American, but they are not and some others who are American but we think are not.

For example, Mel Gibson is perhaps the world’s best known Australian but he is in fact American, born Peekskill, New York, he was raised in New South Wales Australia, his mother was Irish and his father American

Sabotage Schwarzenegger quick review trailer

It struck me that I see a lot of movies and simply do not have the time to write a proper full review for each one. Even a couple of hundred words takes time. So I thought I would add this quick review section as perhaps not everyone wants to read a long review either.

So this is the first quickie

Clearly no longer the 80s, ‘Arnulld’ is way past his prime

When we see him at the beginning of the movie he looks ‘old’

His acting is worse , as if we even thought that possible

The whole movie is a bit messy but the supporting cast is pretty good Sam Worthington stands out as best actor easily (what was he doing in this?)

Lots of gun action and fights, feels very much like a B movie with quite a lot of money spent on it (Budget: $35,000,000 (estimated)

The blood and guts is more like a horror flick than an action movie, there is a LOT of blood

Overall for some reason I still liked the movie, cant put my finger on it but it was mindless escapism that works on that level, but that’s all.

I would vote it 5 Terminators out of 10

Matt Damon speaks of career regrets

Matt Damon speaks of career regrets

The makers of ‘Avatar’, the hugely successful film directed by James Cameron originally offered the lead role to Matt Damon, who turned down that offer and later on says, he regrets it.

Matt Damon was originally offered the leading role of the crippled marine, Jake Sully. Instead the roll went to an Australian actor named Sam Worthington as Matt ended up passing on it due to issues in scheduling.

Talking with Playboy magazine he said that he really wanted to work with James Cameron, and still wants too. He knew the film was going be a hit and everyone would see it, and he could just as easily have been the star.

The director, once Damon had said that he was unable to take on the lead, gave him the option of another role and he says that he remembers thinking that whoever got the lead would be one lucky guy, but ultimately was unable to take part due to his schedule.

He also was supposed to be in the Gay cowboy film, Brokeback Mountain, directed by Ang Lee opposite Joaquin Phoenix, but he had just finished ‘All The Pretty Horses’ as well as ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’, which include two of the same themes.

Damon had discussed with Heath Ledger how he handled ferociously kissing another man in the scene, and Heath Ledger admits he drank half a case of beer before hand, but then laughed and added that you just need to go for it, and if you cannot pull it off then you have no right to be in the film.
