Closed Circuit 2013, online movie review

Closed Circuit movie poster

A powerful explosion produced into a crowded market from London take lives of 120 people and after an anonymous tip, the police immediately arrests a citizen of Turkish origin named Farroukh Erdogan, who is then accused of leading a terrorist cell responsible for producing the market bombing. Needing a scapegoat, because the rest of the accomplices could not be captured alive, the process is extremely important and delicate because if some of the evidence will be made ​​public it could jeopardize the national security, so that Erdogan must be defended by two separate lawyers – […]

Carrie 2013, online movie review

Carrie movie poster

Apart from the final sequences, „Carrie” did not seemed to be a horror movie at all, but I liked how the story was made. Until the end it seemed a normal movie with a teenager tormented by her mother to live a sinless life, which has transformed her in the target of colleague bullies and freak of the high school, because of the way she’s dressed and because she doesn’t talk to nobody more than the bare necessities. Her mother is so religious (I would say crazy) that does not allow the girl to do anything […]

Runner Runner 2013, online movie review

Runner Runner movie poster

„Runner Runner” seemed a very promising movie, with quite interesting actors (although I’m not a fan of Justin Timberlake) and a good story, but after all it was a little disappointing. It’s not the kind of movie to remember long after viewing and to want to see it again after a while. It doesn’t stands out with anything and doesn’t leave anything behind except what we all already know: money makes the law! As long as you pay the right men you don’t have any problem, but when, however, those men starts to get greedy, the beautiful dream […]

The Immigrant 2013, online movie review

The Immigrant movie poster

Ever since I first saw her in „Love me if you dare”, Marion Cotillard‘s face remained imprinted in my mind and even though she has known success with roles from more prestigious films (got an Oscar for her role in „La vie en rose”), for me that movie remains a big milestone. Seeing her face on the poster of „The Immigrant”, alongside of Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner, obviously there was no way to remain impassive and immediately I took the time to watch it. This is the kind of movie made ​​for festivals […]

The Legend of Hercules 2014, online movie review

The Legend of Hercules movie poster

I honestly don’t know what was in the minds of those who were involved in the production of „The Legend of Hercules” (probably not much since they changed the initial title) because its plot is more suitable for Spartacus than Hercules. If we exclude those two pathetic scenes where he shows his God force – when he’s chained and scourged and when he turns his sword into an electric whip due to lightning sent by Zeus – we have a perfect unfolding of events for a Spartacus movie, from beginning ’till end. Moreover, to put on Kellan […]

Ride Along 2014, online movie review

Ride Along movie poster

Usually I’m not really into comedy movies because I am by nature harder to amuse and most of the films from this genre seem to me like some craps that more pisses me off than to make me laugh. Well, the movie Ride Along I can’t introduce in this category because it seemed pretty ok for its genre – action / comedy. I can’t say that I laughed out loud or I laughed throughout the entire movie, but there were some scenes that were able to „steal” some smiles from me, which was ok, […]

Dallas Buyers Club 2013, online movie review

Dallas Buyers Club movie poster

I was saying the other day about „Out of the Furnace” that is a good movie, but adversely affected by the poor promotion. Well, today I saw an excellent movie with an even weaker promotion, even if both protagonists won the Oscar award. It’s about Dallas Buyers Club, and the main protagonists, Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto, suffered some incredible physical transformations – especially the last one. The story is real (it has already become a habit), about Ron Woodroof (McConaughey), a homophobic cowboy, drug and alcohol addict, who is diagnosed with AIDS (the disease […]

Rush 2013, online movie review

Rush moview poster

I’m not a Formula 1 fan, or racings in general, but the movie „Rush” is really impressive and I’m glad I have the opportunity lately to write only praising words about the movies I watch. The film is magnificent not because is having a lot of action on the track, spectacular racings or accidents (although there are a few of them too), but because of Niki Lauda and James Hunt, the two pilots whose rivalry represented the „main event” for years in the „big circus”.   James Hunt is a great pilot, but a […]

Out of the Furnace, online movie review

Out of the Furnace movie poster

„Out of the Furnace” is a movie which, for some reasons, didn’t benefited from a very good publicity, or at least I haven’t heard anything about it before I saw the subtitle on a specialized website, but it’s unexpectedly good – even if it’s starring Christian Bale, a great actor, and you’d think that a movie where he plays it couldn’t be anything but good. Well, I didn’t expected before to be that good than it is. In the cast we also find other interesting names, with prestige, like Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Casey […]

Anchorman 1 and 2 – The Legend of Ron Burgundy, online movie review

Anchorman The Legend of Ron Burgundy

These days I felt the need for a little fun to forget some stuff that occurred so I choosed to see two comedy movies. In fact, two parts of the same movie: Anchorman – The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Seeing them both one after the other, not ten years distance  , I was surprised by two things in particular: how little the actors have changed in these ten years that passed from the first movie to the other and that Veronica Corningstone, the one that makes a hard time for Ron Burgundy, is played […]
