Last night I finally got to see Blood Diamond. It’s been talked about by numerous South African bloggers, one has even been interviewed about it. It’s not often a movie receives praise from a very large percentage of bloggers, bloggers are usually brutally honest, but this one has.
Mark “I-wanna-be-a-film-critic” Forrester was a bit skeptical at first, an African story being told by a Hollywood production team, yet he came out of the movie, not quite impressed, but very impressed. Although the movie has some underlying Hollywood cheese to it, the vivid Black Hawk Down type imagery of human cruelty and suffering, Leo’s brilliant South African accent, a beautiful African landscape, and a level of intensity that will certainly stir the soul and perhaps inspire activism are the ingredients to this great movie.
It’s a must see people! Go now.
Yeah, yeah your thinking, enough about the movie now, your the last one to blog about it Mark, it’s old news. Ok fine, sorry, let’s move on then.
