This is a hilarious meme that came from an image of Oscar winner Jean Dujardin sleeping on George Clooney.  Now people are pasting this image on all sorts of unnecessary stuff further supporting, ‘the internet does things for no apparent reason’.  I love Dujardin and all his charm and I probably wouldn’t be far off if he enjoyed these as much as I did . Check the tumblr dedicated to this here.  I’ve compiles some favorites below.

Ain’t gonna lie, ever since Jean Dujardin did The Artist, he’s proven himself a very charming and talented actor.  In this Funny Or Die original, they talk about how European actors doing very famous villain roles after they first make contact with the Hollywood blockbuster and name examples to qualify their statement [Spanish: Javier Bardem, German: Cristolph Waltz, French: Jean Dujardin].  Anywho, the rest of the video shows him casting for upcoming action movies.  I love actors who do Funny or Die because all it really does is make fun of who they are, and actors that don’t take themselves seriously enough to do them make them more likable.  Anywho, check out the video above to laugh and fall in love with Jean all over again.

Saying this only makes me look wet behind the ears and a greenhorn of a movie watcher: The Artist is the first silent film I’ve ever seen. Slap me on the hands, unsubscribe, believe me to lose any credibility I had, but I think admitting this is important to the impact this movie has had on me. For the longest time, I’ve put most movies made before the 1950s on the back burner because I’ve believed them to be ‘inferior’ and ‘a chore’ to watch compared to the colored, talking, and contemporary films that are being released today. And if the Artist is ANYTHING like the films made in the 30s, 40s, and 50s, then I’ve been wasting my time watching and reviewing movies like Real Steel and Happy Feet 2.

George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) is an arrogant and proud silent film star. After he helps a charming Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo) get a job in acting, he’s suddenly faced with changing times as the talkies begin to change the industry. When he gets left in the dust and watches Peppy on the road to stardom, George begins to take to drink and walks on a road to self-destruction.

[MAINTENANCE NOTE: I’ve added one more movie to the five movies to watch on certain days of the year. Check it out here for the mystery movie I shamefully forgot.]
