Rain Man 1988

The title of this post looks weird, isn’t it? Rain Man? Man in the rain? Raining Men sang by Geri Halliwell and The Weather Girls?

It’s none of the above. It is a movie released in year 1988, starring Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. Surprised? I must say although the movie received many awards, not many know about the movie.

1988, I was only 8 years old, how did I get to know about it? Certainly I didn’t watch the movie at that age. I watched it much later, perhaps when I was 16 or 17. Since then, the movie has been my favorite, on the top of my favorite movies list.

Rain Man is a slow paced movie. Some people may find it boring. But there are also a lot of depths in it. Dustin Hoffman played so well as an autistic man. Tom Cruise was a delicious young man in that movie.

Why is it my favorite? I’m not pretty sure it is Tom Cruise or the movie itself. LOL! But I love the movie. How the 2 brothers interact with each other and how their love for each other grew day by day. You would definitely shed some tears watching the movie. There are a lot of scenes that would make you laugh too of course. :)

I can’t remember the movie very well now. I’ve only watched it once. Can’t believe I fell in love with it the first time I watched it. Am going to find the movie and watch it again. Gosh… A 21 years movie. I love a 21 year-old movie??? LOL! I don’t know what you would think of that. Hahahahaha……

Enjoy the trailer, for now. :)
