Remember that horrrrrrrrrible tsunami of 2004? Unless you live in that part of the world and/or were directly affected by it, probably not. You moved on with yer life, worrying about how Lost would end or if the world was going to end if Mitt Romney became the president. Well, Lost‘s ending sucked, and even if Mitty had won, the world wouldn’t have ended. But for those who endured that tsunami, the world might as well have ended, as their world would never be the same, regardless of how awful Lost ended. Sometimes we need tragic events turned into viewing ‘entertainment’, lest we forget them, and so maybe we can better understand them, even if there’s nothing to understand, cause sometimes bad sh!t happens to good people (and also to bad people)
For one such family, the Belons, tragedy struck, but they got lucky. How lucky? Well, you’ll juss have to see their Impossible tale to find out. But in order to make the movie more sell-able, the real life Spanish clan was transformed into an English one (but at least the director & writer remained Spanish – The Orphanage dudes - Juan Antonio Bayona + Sergio G Sánchez!). Get over the white-washing, cause it doesn’t matter what the nationality of the family is, cause natural disasters are nationality-blind. Also, you can’t really do wrong by making Naomi Watts & Ewan McGregor yer matri & patriarch. Their boys are Tom Holland, Oaklee Pendergast & Samuel Joslin. All 5 screen family members’ performances are incredible (especially eldest son Holland’s. I say Oscar nomination worthy!), and what happens to them cinematically is even more incredible. Remember that crazed tsunami scene that opened Clint Eastwood’s tepid Hereafter? Udder 0s & 1s GARBAGE, hispecially when compared with the impossible possibly seen in The Impossible!!!!
Some people will find The Impossible to be nuttin but torture porn. If that’s the case, why don’t you ask the Belons how porny their torturous experience was. Be thankful this didn’t happen to you when you went on some vacation, JERK!!!
Also, how could you not want to see a movie where you see Naomi Watts’ breasts AND it’s not hot AT all?!??!?!?
