Ever since I've see Hugh Jackman's sweaty muscles in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, I've been having an ailment that I have come to call the Hugh J Fever. I have it bad, guys, I have it bad.

So I watched Australia recently because I love romances and, of course, because it had Hugh Jackman. I was not disappointed. There were ample amounts of Hugh J.'s sweaty muscles all over the place! Yay! As I was watching it, I was surprised to find that the film ran for about 3 hours! Toward the middle it got a little slow, but it picked up in the end and was very exciting. The end was a tear-jerker. Yes, I cried, okay! I'm a big baby. I admit it.

I realize three things while watching this movie:
1) Much like how I have nun-chuck skillz, Hugh Jackman has accent skills. His American accent is so good in X-Men and other American movies he's done that I didn't even know he was Australian!
2) I realize Nicole Kidman's face gets tighter and tighter and we all know why! Jesus, celebrities need to learn when enough is enough when dealing with cosmetic surgery. She looks freaky!
3) Nicole Kidman's forehead is humongous!

I recommend the movie if you're a lover of romances like me. Just be warned about the length of the film, and be prepared to sit tight for a while!

I give it 3.7 stars!

Wow! You liked it that much? I heard it was bad.

Also, Hugh Jackman is Australian, which explains his awesome accent. Haha! You so funny.

Hey, did you change the star rating too? I swear it was 4. Also, I notice you never say what the movie/book is about? What is up with that?

Laura said...

I don't know. I don't like to. Do I have to? Because I like reading reviews like mine and going to watch it. I don't want to know what it's about.

You do whatever you want, my darling. =) I only feel that way about movies that I definitely plan on watching. But sometimes I need to be persuaded to watch stuff.
