The Great Beauty / La Grande Bellezza 2013, review

La Grande Bellezza The Great Beauty 2013 movie poster

There are some people who, when they see a straight line drawn on a canvas that is exposed into an art gallery, tend to analize it with so much seriousness and attention to discover in it some existential meanings that they omit exactly the essential: it’s just a goddamn line! Something like this seemed to me to be La Grande Bellezza. I think it is the best movie about nothing. There are many beautiful pictures, pleasent to the eye, but after a while they started to bore me and as soon as the movie […]

Night Train to Lisbon 2013, movie review and synopsis

Night Train to Lisbon Night Train to Lisbon poster movie

The title „Night Train to Lisbon” does not say very much and that is why I avoided watching this movie for a long time, but because I didn’t had any new movies to attract me and I did not wanted to resort to the old ones, it seemed to be a perfect choice. And it did, because it’s just so interesting. The most enjoyable part about it is that it doesn’t give you everything on a platter, leaving you to think and to imagine what will happen or what really happened. There are some lines […]

A Million Ways to Die in the West 2014, new movie review

A Million Ways to Die in the West movie poster

If I was to choose freely a movie, one of the last options would have been „A Million Ways to Die in the West” 2014, but because I won a contest, whose award consisted in a double invitation to this movie, I said to honor it and go to the cinema to see it. Well, although I was very tired because I had slept only 3 hours from the last 30, I laughed at this movie with tears. I’m not really into comedy movies and I am among the few who did not consider […]

Philomena 2013, new movie review and synopsis

Philomena movie poster

Only two of the nine movies nominated for an Oscar last year I have not succeded to watch – Inside Llewyn Davis and Philomena, and the latter I managed to see it today. This movie is not only inspired by a true story, but also tells a true story, a detail that contributes more to the emotional impact that it has on the viewer. The story is a dramatic one, but presented in such a way that does not put you into depression and you do not need a pack of wipes. That’s because Philomena (Judi […]

Big Bad Wolves 2013: Some men are created evil

Big Bad Wolves movie poster

When Quentin Tarantino says about a movie that is „the best film of the year”, the movie in question certainly arouses the interest of many people – among whom I number myself. You realize that being an Israeli film, Big Bad Wolves in 2013 would have drawn my attention not even in a thousand years, but seeing it is so praised and received several awards, I decided to watch it. Well, the movie is not bad at all, but Tarantino’s statement is certainly a forced one, I think he was trying to be polite […]

Movie Review Vampire Academy 2014: Blood Sisters

Vampire Academy movie poster

You’ll probably gonna think that I’ve lost my mind if I tell you that Vampire Academy 2014 it seemed a fun movie to me, but that’s how it was. It’s a combination of „Harry Potter” and „Twilight”, but without the drama and romance from the second, preferring instead a more or less successful humor. I avoided this movie for a long time because even the tagline that appears on the poster suggests an idiocy: „They suck at school” (a statement that can be interpreted in several ways). I could say lots of bad things […]

About Last Night 2014, New Movie Review

About Last Night movie poster

Perhaps some people will find this as a racist statement, but I’ve never been a fan of movies with black actors – much less comedy / romance ones. I do not like their concept of humor, although there are a few black actors whom I sympathize very much like Eddie Murphy and Kevin Hart. Well, here you have the explanation for which I decided to look though to About Last Night 2014: Kevin Hart. But as we say in my country „you don’t make a spring with just one flower”, so Kevin Hart wasn’t […]

Review The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014

The Grand Budapest Hotel movie poster

The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014 is a movie with one of the most misleading possible cast. Why do I say this? Because when you see big names like Jude Law, Adrien Brody, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Owen Wilson and the list goes on, you remain amazed and after you watch the movie you discover that each of them shows up between 30 seconds and 5 minutes, collected, throughout the movie. Most of them are put there just to attract public, because their roles could be played by any other actors, with […]

Oculus 2013, New Movie Review

Oculus movie poster

As you’ve probably noticed already (or you can see if you take a look through the archive of this blog) I have not written too much about horror movies and this not because I do not like them (this too, but not only), but because most of the new movies from this genere seem very bad and I dropped the idea to bother with them hoping that I’ll find something interesting. However, because I have not seen for a long time a horror movie, I decided last night to watch Oculus 2013, a paranormal […]

The Spectacular Now 2013, Movie Review

The Spectacular Now movie poster

Unlike most of the teen movies, „The Spectacular Now 2013” is not crammed with clichés and sugarly. Sure, there are some similarities to other films of this genre, but not so striking as to give the impression that you’re watching a movie you’ve seen so many times before. I never liked Miles Teller, so not even now I can not say anything good about him, even if, as experts say, he played very well his role. About Shailene Woodley I just know that she plays in „Divergent” and is currently in vogue on Hollywood, […]
