Being a fan of Justified, I thought I would check out some of Mr. Olyphant’s movies. (I am also a fan of Deadwood, so figured I was in good hands ).
1. Hitman. I don’t recommend it unless you are a socially inept male who spends his life in front of a computer screen make-believing he is the uber buff and cool hero that doesn’t even see the girls that throw themselves at you. Seriously. This movie doesn’t even have a sex scene. It has an almost-sex scene. Which would be fine. In fact, it could have been endearing – if the rest of the movie hadn’t been so full of cheese it was making a mess of the grill & threatening the benchtop. Yep. Mr. O. is nice to look at -even bald – but I doubt I’ll watch this rubbish again.
The chick in the movie did have lovely breasts, tho. And did actually get them out. So, lonely men of all ages, check it out.
You want a movie about a troubled assassin? Watch The Assassin, with Bridget Fonda. Or the original, Nikita. But the remake was fine.
One bonus: Bald head = great for practicing sketching various head angles & expressions, so I grabbed a few screenshots.
2. Catch and Release. I am also a fan of Kevin Smith, even when he talks. He talks in this movie & is just gorgeous. The storyline is a cute romantic comedy starring Jennifer Garner. She’s a good-looking young lady, isn’t she?
She plays a young woman dealing with her fiance’s death, & all the drama that goes with that. Finds herself at least a little bit attracted to one of the fiance’s friends, blah-dee blah. Oh, that makes it sound as though I didn’t like it. I did. It was sweet.
Mr. O. looks far younger than he must have been in 2006 – well done, sir, on such an achievement. Yeah, I could see me, possibly, watching it again in a few years’ time.
But that last line of the movie?
Urgh. It probably wouldn’t suck so bad if I wasn’t such a fan of the movie Singles. Honestly, that line just had me thinking “rip off”, which probably wasn’t fair. But so be it. I did like the movie. I’d probably give it a 3/5.
Haven’t seen Singles? Go on, give it a go. Bridget Fonda is in it, too. And Matt Dillon. And Pearl Jam – with speaking parts!
