There have been a few odd things I've seen lately.





The first picture was taken at school, the second one was at a little town nearby
called 'Old Oveido' and the third picture was taken at Gamestop.



Once I saw that fake chalk outline I immediately had the urge to throw
myself on it. Though, I did hestitate for a minute before actually doing it. I
wasn't embarrassed but mostly worried about how dirty the carpet might of been. xD

Lately I've been in the movie-watchin' mood and it's been sort of like
this since last week. I've re-watched a couple of movies that I've seen and
a few that were new to me. Out of the few bunch that were new to me, I love You Philip Morris, takes the cake in being the most entertaining.



Has anyone ever heard of this or seen it?
This movie wasn't even in shown in American theaters.
I didn't know even know what this movie was about until Tommy and I
decided to rent it. We rented it because Jim Carrey was in it and we
thought "Oh look, it's a comedy with Jim Carrey in it. This should be good!"

I just thought it was going to be like the rest of his other comedies like 'Cable Guy', 'Ace Ventura',
and 'Yes Man'. Little did we know, the movie was totally different from our expectations.

"Steven Russell (Jim Carrey) is happily married to Debbie, and a member of the local police force when a car accident provokes a dramatic reassessment of his life. Steven becomes open about his homosexuality and decides to live life to the fullest - even if it means breaking the law. Steven's new, extravagant lifestyle involves cons and fraud and, eventually, a stay in the State Penitentiary where he meets sensitive, soft-spoken Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor) . His devotion to freeing Phillip from jail and building the perfect life together prompts Steven to attempt and often succeed at one impossible con after another. "
-IMDb

Carrey as a gay man was ... amusing to watch. xD What caught us off guard
was within the first 15 minutes of the film where Carrey narrates about his
normal life with his wife and kids. After that we immediately see a scene,
that's a teeny bit semi-graphic, of Carrey's character having sex with another man.
It was obviously meant to show emphasis towards his orientation, though, then
I knew the reason why the movie wasn't shown in theaters. lol It was the only 'graphic'
scene in the entire movie. That, and when he had intercourse with his wife.
(They were fully dressed while this was happening which seemed odd)

I mostly loved the movie because of all these crazy antics that Russell (Carrey) comes
up with in order to remain free from jail. The most crazy antic was (*spoiler*) how he
faked having AIDS in order to get sent to a clinic and from then on he finds a way to break
free. Like, he faked having AIDS by learning about the severe symptoms involved and not once
did the doctors test him to see if he actually had it. It was real intense as we didn't find
out until after he admitted to faking it. I was all sad and such because of how much Phillip
suffered for him ... ;A; Also his motives for breaking free and the love he shows for Phillip
Morris (McGregor) really breaks my heart and I especially felt attached with Phillip Morris
because of how darn sweet he was. ;-;

Oh ... and this movie is all based on a true story. It's crazy.

Wikipedia article on Steven Russell. Click here.
It's sort of like ... an autobiography of this guy's life, the movie I mean.

The movie tends to lean towards comedy at some points and towards drama at other points.
It was mainly characterized as 'Comedy' but I wouldn't say that it's much of a pure comedy.

I really recommend this movie if you're interested in any of the themes above.
I usually don't have a preference for specific themes or plots that I like in movies but
I can just say that the movie really warmed up to me. I really did enjoy it and it would
be something that I'd repeat if I ever own a DVD of the film. :3

I think I truly liked the film because of Phillip Morris himself... ;A;
I LOVE male sympathetic characters who are very sensible and sweet.

What are your favorite type of characters in films?
