All The Money In The World

All The Money In the World MP.jpg

All the Money in the World follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (Christopher Plummer) to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son’s captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her son’s life in the balance, Gail and Getty’s advisor (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money. By the way, this is a true story.

If you haven’t seen it, Christopher Plummer gave a fantastic performance and much better than Kevin Spacey with makeup on. Christopher Plummer had a little makeup on to make himself older. They were some scenes with Kevin Spacey in it, but Christopher Plummer was magnificent.

In other words, Christopher Plummer was original to play J. Paul Getty, and he met the real person in London. So when he heard that Kevin Spacey was fired from the movie, because of sexual harassment. Christopher Plummer had two weeks to memorize his lines before the reshoot.

Reshooting of the movie cost of money. Since Mark Walberg was paid more than Michelle Williams and Michelle Williams is the lead in the movie. It didn’t make sense why she did not get a bigger cut of the reshooting the same scenes. Maybe she was paid more when they shot the first time and for the reshoot paid less.  Still, the lead actor should get more. Mark Walberg has the supporting role, and Mark is a highest paid actor for 2017.  If this movie makes more money than it’s budget, then they will be paid again.

So please see this movie, again and again, By the way, this movie was fantastic. This movie has two Oscar-winning actors:

Golden Globes 2012

The Golden Globes was on last night, and Ricky Gervais hosted the show for the third time. Ever since he hosted the ratings of the show has gone up. Ricky said, “the biggest British comedian was hosting the second-biggest awards show on the third-biggest network [NBC] “… oh, wait, its fourth,” He then compared the Golden Globes to Oscars he said “what Kim Kardashian is to Kate Middleton — louder, trashier, drunker and more easily bought.”

Upon following the rules on the Golden Globes and his satire, he read aloud the rules he was to follow — no profanity, no nudity, no smut or innuendo, no Mel Gibson jokes — which followed a quip about Jodie Foster’s “Beaver” (a film in which Gibson starred), which Foster seemed to take with good grace.

Then he vanished and reappearing only occasionally to introduce presenters. There was one awkward but funny moment. When Ricky Gervais introduce Seth Rogen with his co-presenter Kate Beckinsale Seth, who was standing beside her and mention about his enormous erection. A huge laugh, Kate(mildly horrified  at the time) laugh too. Seth’s smile in embarrassing.

Real-life spouses William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman sang a surprisingly charming song to introduce nominees for supporting actress in a TV series/mini-series   (won by “American Horror Story’s” Jessica Lange), and Rob Lowe covered nicely for a malfunctioning teleprompter, asking co-presenter Julianne Moore “When was the last time you did a cold reading in front of Steven Spielberg?”

When Gervais was introducing Madonna for presenting, he introduced her as “Just like a virgin” then erupted with a theatrical cough. Madonna fired back: “If I’m still just like a virgin, Ricky, then why don’t you come over here and do something about it?” She paused. “I haven’t kissed a girl in a few years. …”A camera caught him dashing across the stage – streaking? He was fully clothed.

Ricky Gervais he will come back next year. His humor is off the chart and by the way, if you haven’t seen his TV show on the science channel called An Idiot Abroad, it’s hysterical watch.
