I’m a dog guy through and through, but Charlie the Kitten is a stud. No other word to describe him. Living the life some of us can only dream about. If this doesn’t get you ready for the weekend, then I completely understand, because this video really just makes me want to take a bath.
“What makes this film so entertaining is that its kind of insane.” Whenever a critic uses a line like that to describe a movie, I’m in. Charlie Countryman (formerly The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman) is the feature directorial debut of Swedish born Fredrik Bond. The movie stars Shia LaBeouf as title character Charlie Countryman, an American wanderer who gets caught up in the fascinatingly bizarre Romanian underworld. LaBeouf may be crazy, but he’s one hell of an actor, and with a supporting cast that includes Evan Rachel Wood, Mads Mikkelsen, and Melissa Leo, this Indie film could surprise a lot of people. Charlie Countryman debuts with a limited release on November 15th.
I know it’s tough to read posts without pictures or videos, but bare with me. First it was BatFleck. Now it’s 50 Shades of Grey. Are we going to have to listen to everyone complain about every major casting decision from here on out? I have a stronger opinion on Affleck being cast at Batman only because I know nothing about 50 Shades of Grey, but it seems that a lot of movie fans have strong feelings about both casting decisions. I agree that every fan is entitled to their own opinion, especially when they are going to spend their hard earned money watching these films (except you, pirate’s. I see you.) But can’t we just enjoy the possibility that people who get paid millions of dollars to cast the right people for a role actually know what they’re doing? Does every decision automatically have to be viewed in a negative light? Social media is great is so many ways, but it’s biggest strength, anyone and everyone can voice their opinion, may also be it’s biggest weakness. Not everyone is going to agree with movie casting, but there is a big difference between disagreeing with a choice and saying that the actor sucks. I don’t care about Alice from Albuquerque’s opinion on movies, and I highly doubt she cares about mine, but we’re forced to exist in the same Twitter-verse, so from here on out, lighten up.
