The Girl on the Train review

Posted : 1 year, 1 month ago on 2 November 2016 04:00 (A review of The Girl on the Train)

The movie didn't do justice to the amazing book. Very poor character development, cast is very weak - Haley Bennett's performance as Megan is laughable - also they made critical changes to the original story from the book which in my opinion ruined the entire screen script. It looks more like one of those pathetic dramatic reconstruction movies from Investigation Discovery than a real movie.

The 11th Hour review

Posted : 2 years, 9 months ago on 17 March 2015 01:08 (A review of The 11th Hour)

Very touching, realistic and shocking movie. Breathtaking ending. Kim Basinger does an amazing job as a woman who suffers and tries to find herself.

Time Lapse review

Posted : 2 years, 10 months ago on 30 January 2015 03:19 (A review of Time Lapse)

Disturbing, spooky but amazingly interesting, all at the same time. A movie that will make you think a lot for a good few days. The cast does a very good job as well. Great plot twist!

The Giver review

Posted : 2 years, 11 months ago on 18 January 2015 12:24 (A review of The Giver)

At the beginning it looks like a cheap copy of "Divergent". The purpose of the movie is good, but its development... not so well. Maybe because the main character is a teenager with concerns like "finding his first love" the movie has a childish and superficial touch. Perhaps if it were longer and with deeper characters, it would have reached its philosophical meaning. However, it is only a narrative of a boy trying to find himself, a cliché. Great performance by Jeff Bridges.

Lucy review

Posted : 2 years, 11 months ago on 18 January 2015 12:21 (A review of Lucy)

Not a bad movie if you analyze its purposes. However, its narrative is cold and Lucy, although Johansson plays it very well, is not a charismatic character, dramatically speaking. The ending is predictable and the subject of the movie has been approached many times before. It begins well, but it ends in a very disappointing way. To sum it all up, it's a movie that tells how a girl had an overdose from blue crystals and started reading minds, controlling tv and telephones and going back in time. Seriously, that's all.

I Origins review

Posted : 2 years, 11 months ago on 29 December 2014 01:45 (A review of I Origins)

Beautiful, sublime movie that tells a story that only those who BELIEVE will understand. It made cry like no other movie did. A remarkable masterpiece.

The movie that should have never been released

Posted : 2 years, 11 months ago on 28 December 2014 05:07 (A review of The Interview)

I honestly think the only reason James Franco and Seth Rogen agreed to be part of this messy movie was the financial one. No actor who wants to build a serious career (and even if this career is acting in comedies) would agree to be part of such a thing.

Not only the movie is not funny, but it is filled with annoying jokes (including numerous and unnecessary references to LOTR and ridiculous scatological jokes). James Franco's performance looks like a parody of himself, artificially trying to be funny.

Kim Jong Un is portrayed as a retarded fan of Katy Perry and margaritas. Seth Rogen does nothing but play himself - as he always does - and women in this movie are just portrayed as mere sexual objects.

Honestly, "Hungover" parts 1,2 and 3 are as classy as a violin concert compared to this movie that should have never been released. If it weren't for the Sony hack and its following drama, it would have never been watched as well.

Seth Rogen plays the same character in every movie

Posted : 2 years, 11 months ago on 27 December 2014 02:26 (A review of Neighbors)

The only thing relatively good about this movie is Dave Franco's debut in a relatively famous comedy and to see that Zac Efron can make people laugh, too. Seth Rogen is still playing Pineapple Express's Dale in every single movie. To sum it all up, the movie looks like Superbad, but the characters here use more weed - and mushrooms.

Special effects didn't save this movie

Posted : 2 years, 11 months ago on 27 December 2014 02:15 (A review of Exodus: Gods and Kings)

While the movie is visually impressive, the screenplay is a mess and the characters are cold, distant and artificial. Portraying God as a 11-year-old child was definitely not a good idea either. Christian Bale may be a wonderful actor but is just not convincing as Moses, not because he couldn't be convincing, but because the dramatically icy screenplay doesn't let him show his best qualities.

Scenes that could have been remarkable, such as God's speech when He tells Moses about the 10 commandments, are portrayed as a 30-second-scene right in the end of the movie, with no context and no emotion. It is obvious that any Christian (and also non-Christians) who has watched the movie was expecting a more emotionally touching scene regarding the 10 commandments, but it seems like the movie's goal was to make actors wear extra amounts of eyeliner.

It made me remind of Alexander, which had many mistakes including a blonde Colin Farrell and Angelina Jolie as his almost-his-age looking mother. Both movies were not quite historically (Biblically, when it comes to Exodus) accurate , had amazing special effects, total lack of emotion... and were a waste of money and time.

W.E. review

Posted : 3 years, 11 months ago on 4 January 2014 01:08 (A review of W.E.)

The critics have been excessively harsh towards this movie. Perhaps if it was directed by a famous cinema guru , people wouldn't be so mean about it. It's a beautiful movie that really made me cry. The edition and photography are fantastic, and I love the way Madonna directed the actors. Andrea Risebourough does a brilliant job as Wallis. Really good and intelligent movie, amazing cast.
