I would love to share this last poster for Peaky Blinders 🙂

    1. Hahaha don’t worry…I don’t hate anyone who haven’t seen his movies. It’s already common that no one knows him. I have meet many people who said “Who?” everytime I said my favorite actor is Cillian Murphy. At least you have seen three of his movies 😉

      Anyway, some of those movies are short films.

  1. WOW Nov, this is brilliant!! I like your description of #10 Intermission, that makes me really want to see it soon. Ahahahaha, the description of him in In Time is perfect. Bad ass cop indeed, but also sexy in black leather 😉

    1. Thank you Ruth 🙂
      You can see that I have seen most of his movies 😉
      Hahaha don’t get fool by Intermission, what Cillian did to get his girl back is not that kind of romantic thing…it was quite silly.
      Sexy beyond words!! Hahaha too bad I still can’t bring my self to rewatch the movie.

    1. I really love your comment, Audrey 🙂 it makes me smile in agreement. When it comes from me, people might think that I am a bit bias…maybe I am bias, but he really is a versatile actor who can play anything.

  2. Nice idea Novia, I’ve been thinking for a while of doing a post of one line reviews of my favourite films, there is something appealing about the brevity of it. Challenging and enjoyable.

    1. Thank you Ronan 🙂
      I am not sure if I can make a one line review for my fav movies, because I’ll be using amazing for all of them 😉

      1. I know, it’s tough but it’s an interesting proposition. I’d be interested to see what bloggers would come up with. I feel a blogothon coming on 😉

    1. Which ones have you seen?
      Sunshine is one of my fav movies. It’s more realistic than…say…armageddon, because people who tried to save the earth are scientist from many countries.

      1. I’ve seen Dark Knight Trilogy, 28 days later and Inception. All Fantastic movies. I’ve actually never seen Armageddon, but I remember that Aerosmith song from the movie soundtrack.

        1. Ah!! Those three make him famous but those three don’t show his real talent in acting 😉
          He is so underrated.

          Armageddon is being rerun like a hundred times here 😉

  3. You did a great job with these! I’m not really that into movies, I just sleep when the humans put one on the TV! 🙂

    Have a fun day

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

  4. You know I see him all the time in movies, but when I count back how many movies of his that I’ve actually seen…it’s only really 3 or 4. The latest one that I watched (oh I Finally got round to it) was In Time, and well, one sentence, “Now that’s a cop who is a cop with a bigger story to tell”. I mean I guessed where he’d come from but I didn’t really think he was like the main protagonist, uh Timberlake’s character whose name I’ve forgotten…

    1. 3 or 4? What else have you seen?
      Timekeeper Raymond is an interesting character, I guess that’s why he said yes to the project. Cillian loves playing different characters

      1. I’ve seen him in Batman Trilogy, In Time, Red Eye and Tron: Legacy oh, it’s five actually, because I’ve also seen Inception. I’m really bad at keeping track – unless I make a list, it’s more like an “Oh, I’ve seen him in plenty of movies” kind of feeling lol. I think I may have watched Watchmen and 28 Days Later as well, but I didn’t want to include them in the count because I may not have watched them completely…oops
        Yeah, I’ve noticed he’s played many, many different roles. And I think he’s a great actor. Actually in Red Eye, honestly he was badass

        1. Oh…the Watchmen here is a short movie not that Watchmen that talks about retired superheroes.

          Hahaha try watching Red Eye and then Breakfast on Pluto continuosly…you’ll fell like you’re seeing two different actors 😉

          1. Ah I had a feeling it wasn’t the same!

            Ooohhh that sounds like a good idea! Maybe I will do that! Thanks for the suggestion 🙂

Say something so I know you have read my post, THANK YOU for reading :)
