Movie Review “Angel-A” 2005, by Luc Besson

Angel A movie poster

I didn’t kept an accurate record, but I think in this half-year of 2014 I broke my personal record of movies where the spoken language is other than English for an entire year. I do not know what’s wrong with me, because I usually avoid these movies, but just in this month I have seen five such movies and still have another one „on target”. The latest one is a French one, named Angel-A 2005, which convinced me to watch it because it is written and directed by Luc Besson, a very good director/screenwriter. […]

Memories of a Geisha 2005, old movie review

Memories of a Geisha movie poster

Even if it is not full of typical American cliches, Memories of a Geisha 2005 remains, however, a chick flick. It was a bit interesting to watch, but I didn’t particularly liked, I didn’t managed to „connect” with any character, not even with the girl from the main role. If I had to characterize it by a simple onomatopoeia, that it would be „meh.” I wonder how anyone could be attracted to such a Geisha with tons of makeup on their face and their way of walking is simply ridiculous. Yes, it will catch my attention […]

La Vie en Rose 2007, old movie review

La vie en rose 2007 movie poster

French movies are the only European movies that I watch with interest and high expectations on their part, that’s because most of the ones I’ve seen so far I liked very much, despite the fact that I do not like French language. A girl raised in poor conditions who gets to sing on street corners to earn some food money is getting at maturity one of the most famous French singers in history: Édith Piaf. Her story tells us director Olivier Dahan through the „La vie en rose 2007” (La Môme) movie, double Oscar […]

Four Brothers 2005, movie review and synopsis

Four Brothers movie poster

Mark Wahlberg is, in my opinion, one of the best actors and this is because he can play in any genre – comedy, action, sci-fi or drama. I really do not remember seeing a movie with him that I can say about it that is bad, and Four Brothers 2005 makes no discordant note. I had no intention of watching it, I did not even knew about the existence of this movie, but because someone told me it’s very good and because I had nothing better to watch, I said to try it. Sure, […]

King of Devil’s Island 2010, old movie review

King of Devil's Island movie poster

When I first heard about King of Devil’s Island / Kongen Av Bastøy 2010 I thought it’s going to be a horror movie or at least something with brutal murders, but the reality is quite different. I have seen that it is very praised and often recommended on the Facebook movie groups, so I got curious and looked watched it even though I usually don’t look at movie that speaks a language other than English. Maybe that’s why I can not say that I liked this movie, it seemed rather modest, failed to impress me at […]

Valkyrie 2008, old movie review

Because I had a lot of failures with the latest new movies I’ve seen this week, I decided to go somewhat to the safe with an oldest film, honoring this way the recommendation I received from the same „friendly ghost” who recommended me „The Last Samurai” too. Why do I say that I went to the safe? Because this movie has Tom Cruise in the lead role and it’s subject is WWII: yes, I’m talking about Valkyrie 2008. The only negative thing that I found is that this movie was inspired by real events […]

The Last Station 2009, Review and Synopsis

The Last Station movie poster

In my „quest” to watch all major films of James McAvoy, who I wrote about earlier, I’ve arrived at „The Conspirator”, but after ten minutes of viewing I realized that I’ve already seen a few years ago and I gave up to look further (but I highly recommend, because it’s very good), so I went to „The Last Station” , a biopic movie about the life of Russian writer Leo Tolstoy. As much as I’d like to say it was a great movie and I loved it, I cannot do this because it will […]

My Life Without Me 2003, movie review

My Life Without Me movie poster

I don’t know how I found out about the movie My Life Without Me, but the fact is that his premise immediately intrigued me and I decided to give him a chance. It was not what I expected, but it was interesting. A 23-years-old girl who lives with her ​​husband and her two daughters in a trailer from the yard of her mother, receives the terrible news that she has a tumor and will live only two to three months. Upon hearing such news, most people would do anything to find a solution to […]

The Last Samurai 2003, movie review

The Last Samurai movie poster

At the insistence of a „friendly ghost” I took a break from the new movies and I decided to watch an older movie, „The Last Samurai”, starring Tom Cruise in the lead role and the only regret is that I’ve waited so long to watch it. The recommendation was made to me several months ago, but I kept putting it off because it takes a bit too much to watch and it’s pretty old so I have some hard times to see such movies. The Last Samurai is the kind of movie that you […]

Movie Review Atonement 2007

Atonement movie poster

A few weeks ago I began a „mission” to see all the movies of James McAvoy, so now it was the turn of Atonement. I knew about this movie for a long time, but I’ve never wanted to press „play” because it didn’t aroused my curiosity very much, but as I was on this mission, I watched to see how it is. Now that I’ve seen, I can say I was wrong that I didn’t watched it earlier because it’s very good, especially towards the end… The fact that alongside McAvoy is Keira Knightley it […]
