Fabulous Film Friday

21



Who loves Kevin Spacey???



I do, I do! So of course today's feature film has to include a Kevin Spacey film. And I have always thought Kate Bosworth was worth mentioning.



I don't care what any of you say, but Blue Crush is still one of my favorite movies to watch on a Sunday afternoon. But, back to 21, it is supposedly a true story and I love watching films that glorify actual events.

Movie synopsis from Yahoo! Movies:

The true story of the very brightest young minds in the country - and how they took Vegas for millions. Ben Campbell is a shy, brilliant M.I.T. student who -- needing to pay school tuition -- finds the answers in the cards. He is recruited to join a group of the school's most gifted students that heads to Vegas every weekend armed with fake identities and the know-how to turn the odds at blackjack in their favor. With unorthodox math professor and stats genius Micky Rosa leading the way, they've cracked the code. By counting cards and employing an intricate system of signals, the team can beat the casinos big time. Seduced by the money, the Vegas lifestyle, and by his smart and sexy teammate, Jill Taylor, Ben begins to push the limits. Though counting cards isn't illegal, the stakes are high, and the challenge becomes not only keeping the numbers straight, but staying one step ahead of the casinos' menacing enforcer: Cole Williams.


And of course the movie trailer:

you know what i watched on the plane ride back from Paris? well, i watched 4 movies and i plan on blogging about them later. but I'll let out a sneak peak now. i loved Becoming Jane! and it cut off right at the end when we were about to land so i haven't seen the end yet. but i just love Anne Hathoway and James McAvoy has officially been added to my celebrity crush list.

have you seen it?

jmcqueen82 said...

yup! I loved it too.

you know, I have recently been really in to this show on Showtime called the Tudors. It is flipping fantastic! Completely historically inaccurate, but just wonderful.

I don't have showtime, but I have been renting the dvds on netflix. you should check in to it. I think you may like it. Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays Henry VIII.

kevin calls it all part of my softcore porn addiction. But, I catch him looking over his laptop when I am watching it more often than not. (especially when he hears the heavy breathing.)
