Recommending: Shia Labeouf

In Opinion, Opinion/Personal, Personal, Recommendations on December 31, 2012 at 9:55 pm

I know my last recommendations post was on movies, but I saw something recently that YET AGAIN make me think twice about this actor and changed my opinion of him, so it’s too hard to pass it up or make this post wait.  But, as I always do, I must start at the beginning…

Two words: Louis Stevens. I don’t know one person close to my age that didn’t love Even Stevens.  If you don’t know what it is, it was your typical Disney show based on a dysfunctional family and the shenanigans they got into.  Shia Labeouf played the younger sibling, Louis, who was always in some kind of war or competition or fight with his older sister Ren.  They couldn’t stand each other, but when it came down to it, they would eventually have each other’s backs.  Shia Lebouf entered the world of entertainment as this goofy kid who actually did slapstick comedy really well (especially compared to most Disney actors these days).

Not gonna lie, even at 26 this makes me giggle.

 

The first is a scene showing how difficult things can become for a person with a disability, and gives a slight peek into how horrible people can treat others.

The second is a scene that truly shows how horrible people can be.  And also how those horrible people should be treated, in my opinion.

If you can stand it, I did find the entire Tru Confessions movie on Youtube in 5 sections, I think.  It’s not great quality, but if you want to watch something bad enough, you will.

Now we know this kid can actually act.  He does a couple more Disney projects, finishes up Even Stevens, then makes his break into movies not made for television.  He has small (but lovable) parts in I, Robot and Constantine (which has been on the SyFy channel every time I’ve turned my television on lately) and has a part in Bobby (which is also a great movie).  Then comes Disturbia.  It’s a serious movie, a suspenseful thriller with a little action thrown in.  I’m watching, I’m liking, I’m thinking, “Ok, so he can do a little physical stuff, too.”  Then *BAM*, he hits us with Transformers and Eagle Eye.  So this emotion evoking comedian now does action, too?!  What can’t this guy pull off???  I’m almost positive that any person could throw any concept and any scene at him and he could do it in his sleep.  Not to mention he has grown up to be quite the nice looking man.

So what is it that I came across that made me rethink Shia Labeouf again?  After all I’ve seen, what else was there?  Well…there was his full nudie scene in a music video.   I stumbled across the name Sigur Rós.  I’d heard it a few times, seen it around, and when a song randomly came on my Pandora, I became interested.  I looked it up on Youtube.  The music is beautiful and haunting.  Then I see that there is an actual video for this one song, Fjögur píanó.  There’s a warning that the video contains nudity, I’m expecting some boobs here and there since that’s generally all nudity is.  I see Shia Labeouf and the lady, which exposed boobs as expected.  But then it’s full frontal of both of them!  I literally had to pause the video and google it, thinking a man very closey resembling Shia Labeouf had to be this actor, but no – it is truly him throughout the entire video.  After the initial shock (not of seeing Shia Labeouf’s package, but just the fact that a guy’s junk was shown because, seriously, that never happens) I restarted the video from the beginning and watched it all the way through.  Yes, they are naked.  Yes, they are dancing together and holding each other and touching each other.  But I never found it to be sexual. The video, the music – it was beauty.  It was art.  It was breathtaking.  I am not an overly emotional person, but by the end I had tears in my eyes.

If you don’t like naked bodies, this isn’t the video for you…

So now he’s done it.  Yet again, this guy has amazed me.  He has danced and acted without even using one word, and made me catch my breath at how good it is.  I get it that lots of people think he is a d-bag.  I don’t know anything about his personal life.  All I know is that he continues to impress on-screen.  So basically, I will watch anything this guy is in – forever.  And I think all of you should, too.
