Valkyrie 2008, old movie review

valkyrie 2008 movie poster

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 […]

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 […]

Penny Dreadful, renewed for season two

Penny Dreadful Eva Green poster

I told you that Penny Dreadful is a great TV show and as proof to that, after only 4 episodes passed from it, those from Showtime’s already agreed to extend by a further minimum of one season and plan to add more episodes in season 2. This first season has only 8 episodes but those from Showtime ordered the second season to have 10. About the plot of this story I wrote in this article, there’s no point to repeat now what I said then, but the news that we’ll going to have a season two I […]

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, […]

Michael Hirst offered details about „Vikings” season 3

Ragnar, Lagertha and Bjorn in Battle

With the end of the second season of „Vikings” , it seems that Ragnar Lothbrook will finally have the peace on which he wishes for, now that he killed his two main viking enemies, Earl Borg and King Horik. With those men out of the way, his deal of peace he wants to conclude with the King Ecbert of Wessex can be done without any difficulties from other Vikings. But of course peace will not last forever in the Kattegat. In an interview given to zap2it.com, the creator of „Vikings” series, Michael Hirst, discussed the […]

Labor Day 2013, Movie Review & Synopsis

Labor Day 2013 Movie Poster

I don’t know exactly what made me to watch the movie Labor Day 2013, but now I’m sorry I did it. I have not even the excuse of sympathetic actors, because Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet are not among my favorites. Even so, despite all „ods”, I decided to watch it to see how it is and the conclusion is just one: A waste of my pretious time. It would have been better for me to go to sleep the two-hour duration of the movie, I would have been more relaxed like I was after […]

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 […]

Non-Stop 2014, New Movie Review & Synopsis

Non Stop movie poster

I would have thought that a movie who takes place almost exclusively inside an airplane could be so exciting like Non-Stop 2014. I was pleasantly surprised to see „Peter Russo” (Corey Stoll), from the House of Cards series, among Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore and as soon as I laid my eyes on him I suspected him to be the villain of the movie… whether I was right or wrong in suspecting him you’ll see watching the movie. Of course, if you have not watched House of Cards you’ll not know who Russo is so that […]
