Well, with nothing to do for that day (28/02/11), I went to Mid Valley’s Golden Screen Cinema to watch two Oscar nominated movies. The King’s Speech and The Black Swan. Both movies were totally AWESOME!

The King's Speech

The Duke of York, acted by Collin Firth, in the movie, wasn’t actually the true heir to the throne of King George V. However, after some events he has to step up to the expectations of his people. Having problem in speaking fluently, a therapist was found. A chain of events followed, ending the movie with a blast.

Of course, King George VI didn’t fully overcome his problem in speaking publicly; his therapist was beside him all the way during all his war speech.

The movie totally earned the prize for Best Picture and Best original Screenplay. Of course, this movie would be nothing without its director, Tom Hooper, and actor, Colin Firth.

Colin Firth, as you people who watched the Oscar’s, won the award for Best Actor. He played the role of Duke of York. Later in the movie, he ascended to the throne as King George VI. The stuttering was very convincing. The swearing was hilarious.

Bonham Carter, nominated for the best supporting actress, played the role in The King’s Speech as the Duchess of York. I still prefer her acting as Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter series.
The Black Swan

Totally speechless. Natalie Portman’s role as Nina who has problem in hallucination due to stress was very convincing. Damn, the process of personality change was excellent. Though, I have to agree on the fact that the movie is 18. The seduction, lesbian sex and everything aren’t suitable for everyone.

In her pursue for perfection, Nina let go of herself for the growth of the quality of The Black Swan which she lacks. In the end, she succeeded with the price of her sanity and life.
