Ahmed Al Kiremli Opinion

Wow, where to start with this movie? This movie won five Oscars

This movie won five Oscars – Best Cinematography, Best Director, Best Makeup, Best Picture, and Best Effects and Sound Effects Editing

– and was nominated for another five – Best Costume Design, Best Film Editing, Best Music, Original Dramatic Score, Best Sound and Best Writing, and Best Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen. I still don’t know why James Horner didn’t win the Oscar for the music because it has one of the best soundtracks ever.

Mel Gibson is a brilliant director, despite the fact that he is usually an actor. The movies that he has directed create the feeling that the director is acting inside the movie. Examples of this are his films The Passion of the Christ and Apocalypto. I didn’t mention Brave Heart because he both directs and acts in this movie. Mel Gibson won two Oscars for Brave Heart, Best Director and Best Picture.

As far as his acting performance, Mel Gibson portrayed the character better than the character himself could have, so I still don’t know why he didn’t even get nominated for Best Actor! His body language, especially his eyes, was just amazing. The very last scene in the film is especially powerful, when he is being executed and says the word, “FREEDOM!”

The cinematography was excellent, especially during the war scenes and other amazing moments, such as when the handkerchief falls from William Wallace’s hand in the last scene. The makeup and script were amazing.

I don’t know how many times I have seen this movie, but it’s more than twenty. I am not sure because whenever it is on, I just can’t resist it. I love this movie and the deep message it has about fighting for what you believe in, love, revenge, and sacrifice.

Conspiracy Theory (1997)

By Ahmed Al Kiremli

Movie Story

In this film a man used to work for the CIA as special agent and then got involved in a secret program where he suffered a great deal. The program changed his personality, affecting his memory and his entire way of life. He falls in love with the daughter of one of his targets and decides to protect her after his father’s death. His previous experience in the secret program gave him a lot of knowledge but also causes him to see conspiracy wherever he looks.

Ahmed Al Kiremli Opinion

This is one of my favorite films and is a movie that I can watch over and over and never get bored. I don’t remember how many times I have watched this movie: 5, 10, 20, I stopped counting. This is another one where I just can’t change the channel whenever it’s on TV.
Mel Gibson has done a great job in terms of his acting performance. You can see his character live through him from his eyes, body language, and the expressions on his face as he’s performing crazy moves, laughing, or crying. Julia Roberts also performed very well, especially in the scenes where she is crying. Her chemistry and body language with Mel Gibson was just so perfect and real. Patrick Stewart also delivered an unforgettable performance.
This movie will force you to get emotionally attached. It has exciting action, comedy, and tragedy. The drama and storyline of the movie are powerful because of the script, the great directing, the interesting soundtrack, and the main song.
Mel Gibson keeps repeating in the movie that “love gives you wings.” It’s true, and you see what some people can do with real love in this movie. I think Red Bull took that phrase from the movie and used it in their ads by replacing the word “love” with “Red Bull.” This movie will make you laugh, cry, and feel the love.

Batman Car In Dubai

While walking in the Dubai Mall, heading for lunch, my eyes saw something unique standing in the middle of the mall. It made my head turn immediately to see that amazing object! After adjusting my focus, I realized that I was standing in front of the car that appeared in Tim Burton’s 1989 film classic Batman. Behind the car in a glass box, you can see the engine. The construction of the car took three years and cost over a million dollars.

Now the Batman car is owned by the Emarati collector Ahmed Al Attar. The car is just amazing and I took pictures that you can see below.
