I love Sandra Bullock!
Of all of Hollywood's shining stars, I have most respect and appreciation on her. She's one actress who can certainly pull off any types of role. She can be crazy or she can be tough. She can be dramatic or borderline villain. She's just fantastic!
I watched her burgeon into the movie industry. I've seen her as the lovestruck Lucy crushing on a stranger in While You Were Sleeping. I admired her being chic, fab and armed in Miss Congeniality and her tough role in The Blind Side which won her a double Best Actress.
Last night I get to watch All About Steve. I know I'm kinda late coz it's been a year since that movie was released, yet Bradley Cooper is in it so I couldn't miss it for the whole damn world.
As expected Sandra did well on her role as Crossword puzzle creator, who's brilliance made her a socially awkward human being with zero interest in dating until he met the hot, cable news crew - Steve.
The movie was a bit hilarious and she looks cute in that red boots which she wore the whole time. I just don't like her hair. I preferred her donning that sleek brunette look just like in The Proposal.
Mary (Sandra) is soooo talkative that most people around find it annoying. She's a walking encyclopedia. She'll give trivia even if you don't ask her to. She uses vocabulary that would make your mouth wide open because either it's too deep to comprehend or a normal human being wouldn't use such a word. Like would you say "vamoose" instead of "let's go"?
This is one movie where I didn't get to predict the ending. I thought Steve will fall in love with her after she fell into that mine shaft while chasing after him. I was wrong.
The movie talks about the choices we make in life and how we see life in general. That life is like a crossword puzzle. Some days are easy that you would finish answering them in an instant. While some days are hard that you just can't figure out the clue and you want to stop and give up. But once you stop for awhile and ponder, you actually know the answer. It's all about patience, perseverance, setting goals and getting it done.
Here are some famous, worth musing quotes I got from the movie :
"You missed the bus probably because you're not meant to take it."
"If you love someone, set him free. If you have to stalk him, he probably wasn't yours in the first place." :)
