Whenever I hear the name ‘Bradley Cooper’, my mind instantly drive itself off the road. The name “Bradley Cooper” once stood for “hot’n sexy comedy” (i.e The Hangover) but steadily and true, Cooper’s been showing the world that he is Not to be typecast. No, Bradley Cooper has just about enough in his baggage to stay on top in Hollywood as well as in front of what’s known as leading men of the 21st century!
From the Wet Hot American Summer, to the Wedding Crashers, through to the The Hangover and away, Bradley has always (imo.) been an amazing actor, always fitting his role perfectly. But…… when it come down do it, as it always does….. the Silver Lining (pun intended)!
After the movie Silver Linings Playbook, the entirety of Bradley’s career was changed. A lot of people “blames” the movies success on Jennifer Lawrence’s performance, but me…. nah, I blame Bradley. Sure, I love J-law in the film just as much as anyone, but Bradley’s performance was without a doubt Oscar-worthy. And with that…. (and you can count Rocket among this)… There’s not much Bradley can do to shock me at this point, but…. the trailer for American Sniper really did make me think again about whatever I thought about Bradley before. If you haven’t seen the trailer……. please, watch it.. If you have seen it, well, please watch it again, ’cause that’s what I’m about to do!
What’ya think, is this a good fit for Bradley or is it a bad career move? Let me know down below!
And if you’re not too trite with movie spectacles, please tune in soon again to read my thoughts on Four Christmases, but until then….
