I find myself crying at the end of every movie, even when the endings are completely predictable. The first time I remember crying at the end of a movie was "Dinosaurs." The next time I remember really crying was when I saw "Rent," but that's a given. But what's bad is one of my favorite movies "V for Vendetta," made me cry three times when I first saw it in theaters. Three frikkin times, I started crying; not like tearing-up but hysterical "I have a headache" type of crying. I've recently seen the movie "Seven Pounds" and I cried during the last thirty minutes of the movie...and it took me an extra twenty minutes to stop crying after the movie. My emotions tire me. But what doesn't tire me are Will Smith movies; more specifically the movie "Hancock."
This movie is a phenomenal depiction of the modern-day superhero. I find it weird that every superhero that we know (Superman, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, Batman, Flash, etc.) automatically grasps the concept of accepting their fate as a superhero. "Hancock" shows the true story and struggle of a superhero that wishes to be human; a human without the responsibility of being the hero for every ill deed. Later on in the movie (of course) Hancock realizes that his job is to be the hero everyone needs. I wish I had a superhero to call.
On other topics, I just watched "This Christmas"
for the first time and I really enjoyed it. (Yes, I teared-up a little bit at the end. Movies just get to me.) What really made me like "This Christmas" was it was a stupendous showcase of A-A's (African-Americans). The usual stereotypes (drug dealing, overuse of slang, uneducated, broken families, fried chicken, etc.) weren't present; I'm glad the writers and director didn't indulge into the "dark side" of cinema, in this film. In addition, the dialogue was witty (at times) with its wordplay and innuendos. I love good dialogue.
