Swinging on a star

msn的電影網頁介紹布斯韋利斯,並選出他的十大角色如下:

1. Pulp Fiction
2. Die Hard
3. 12 Monkeys
4. Sin City
5. Unbreakable
6. The Sixth Sense
7. Breakfast of Champions
8. Nobody's Fool
9. Fifth Element
10. Last Boy Scout

其中第7和8都沒有看過,聽聞是小本製作。不過一連四套Die Hard做主角John McClane並不是頭號角色,反而及不上只演三份之一套"危險人物"內的拳手,有點不明所以。

不過在云云的動作影片之中,若選Bruce Willis在電影中最難忘的場面,我會挑選在Hudson Hawk之中,Willis 和 Aielo一邊唱著Swinging on a star,一邊去偷野的情節。

這是十多年前Bruce Willis的一齣賠本電影,當時影評和票房驅差的"Hudson Hawk",除了Bruce Willis飾演神偷Hawk(飛鷹?)之外,Danny Aielo做佢拍擋,Andie MacDowell做修女,當年還未出道csi的David Caruso也有份演配角。

可能不少人認為這是爛片一部,但是看過之後感覺也算不錯。主線是Bruce Willis受一神秘集團威脅,要把當年DaVinci幾件不同的設計品偷到手,合成後便成為一台鍊金的機器。而Andie MacDowell,便是羅馬梵蒂岡泒來的修女臥底。由美國一直鬥到羅馬,有不少的動作場面。Hawk偷野要講timing,所以他便選了不同長度的歌曲作為時間的計算,其實都幾神化下,不過睇落又覺得幾夠瀟灑。後來在Ocean 12中的法國神偷,他選了歌曲的節奏來避開laser beam去偷珠寶,可謂同出一徹。在youtube的片段中,可以留意一下Bruce Willis當年仍有不少的頭髮,而在Die Hard 4.0中,他已是光頭佬一名了。



Swinging on a star


Would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a mule?

A mule is an animal with long funny ears
Kicks up at anything he hears
His back is brawny and his brain is weak
He's just plain stupid with a stubborn streak
And by the way, if you hate to go to school
You may grow up to be a mule

Or would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a pig?

A pig is an animal with dirt on his face
His shoes are a terrible disgrace
He ain't got no manners when he eats his food
He's fat and lazy and extremely rude
But if you don't care a feather or a fig
You may grow up to be a pig

Or would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a fish?

A fish won't do anything, but swim in a brook
He can't write his name or read a book
And to fool the people is his only thought
And though he's slippery, he still gets caught
But then if that sort of life is what you wish
You may grow up to be a fish

And all the monkeys aren't in the zoo
Every day you meet quite a few
So you see it's all up to you
You can be better than you are
You could be swingin' on a star
