Bruno, Hitler and Tom Cruise: what is fame?

Posted in Scripts, Uncategorized with tags , on July 13, 2009 by educadoresurbanos

When I was writting yesterday´s post on Bruno movie, I thought it was a hell of an ironic evaluation of those who pursuit fame, as the script really starts as Brüno wonders how he might become as famous as that other Austrian, Hitler.

It reminded me about Operation Valkyrie (2004) with Tom Cruise as Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg, that tried to place a bomb where Hitler would make a conference. And also, it reminded me about Tom Cruise in Rio, where astonished Brazilians yelled to death to celebrate his stay in our country. He was a famous man. Not only for his movies but for his kindness with his audience. Despite some mistakes as thanking journalists with “gracias” (Spanish word) and also talking about our music as samba (correct) and tango (incorrect), he was very kind to eveyone. A good example of fame built on a solid career and not on empty midia actions. Watch this documentary on the interview he gave to Brazilian journalists.


Funny People

Death is surrounding us. The movie 2012 probably will tell that to us. Meanwhile, keep Funny People in mind. July 31st is the lauching date in USA. In Brazil, let´s see if it comes for Spring season. The movie is about a funny guy that discovers he is with a terminal disease and how he deals with the situation: relationships, friends, jealous and all these things that affect human being so much and figure as scenario to grow up.

Adam Sandler’s character (George Simmons) has destroyed all of his relationships. He cheated on his lover and abandoned his family. All he has left are fellow famous celebrities that he hangs with occasionally. With a terminal disease expected to take its course on him, it has become time to make sense of his life.

We should be used to make balances of  life. Time is passing so nervously and chalenges coming so sudden in today world. A movie to talk about life balance… with fun together. And a good cast: Adam Snadler, Leslie Mann, Eric Bana and so on. The trailer shows an interesting script and performance. Let´s check the film.

A morte nos rodeia. O filme 2012 provavelmente irá revelar isso de forma bem clara. Enquanto ele não vem, pense no filme Funny People (ainda sem tradução, ao que eu saiba), a ser lançado nos Estados Unidos em 31 de julho e no Brasil, talvez na primavera. O filme é sobre um comediante que descobre que ele está com uma doença terminal e como ele lida com a situação: relacionamentos, amigos, ciúmes e todas essas coisas que afetam o ser humano e que nos permitem amadurecer e aprender.

O personagem de Adam Sandler (George Simmons) destruiu todos os seus relacionamentos. Traiu seu amor e abandonou sua família. Com uma doença terminal se desenvolvendo, ele quer dar um sentido para sua vida.

A gente deveria ir se acostumando a fazer balanço de vida. O tempo está passando tão nervosamente e há tantos desafios que surgem do nada, hoje, que o tema é atualíssimo. Um filme para falar disso… com diversão. E um bom elenco: Adam Snadler, Leslie Mann, Eric Bana e assim por diante. O trailer mostra um roteiro interessante e bom desempenho. Vamos verificar o filme.
