Will Smith in Seven Pounds

by Jon Pinney on April 18, 2009

seven-poundsSo I was on a plane from Chicago back to Sacramento today…  While I was flying home, they played a movie.  I was reading a book so I didn’t really watch, but I did catch that the movie was Seven Pounds starring Will Smith.  (I also didn’t have any headphones so I couldn’t listen even if I wanted to).

I hadn’t seen it before, but I had heard about it.  Throughout the movie there were times when I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen–and remember, I couldn’t hear anything.  It was so rivetting, and Will Smith’s acting seemed to be amazing (and so did everyone else’s).

By the end of the movie, I was watching it with all of my attention.  I had to hold back tears… and a couple escaped.  I still don’t know exactly what happened, but I do know it was beautiful and I will see it again with sound.

Nice blog at http://www.jonpinney.com. I just read that Will Smith, who was last seen in Seven Pounds, is all set to play Captain Steve Hiller Will in the sequels to the hit sci-fi film Independence Day. I am looking forward to see that!
