Good but how accurate is it?
The movie is good, a little slow paced for my liking but the acting is good, especially by the main actor Matthias Schoenaerts. My issue is mostly about the accuracy of the events depicted in the film. Both inside and outside the sub. This is a very sad story but after watching the movie and reading about it online I still don't know: Was it an unavoidable accident? Did the Russians really abandoned their own people? Was there ever a chance to save the sailors? From what I read it seems we don't really know what happened to the sailors that survived the explosions. There's considerable debate over how long the sailors in the ninth compartment had survived. Some say they could have lived up to a week, while others say they lived no more than a few hours. From the notes that were recovered we know that some sailors in the ninth compartment were alive at least 6 hours and 17 minutes after the boat sank.
The Call (2013)
One of the best... but...
This is one of the best thrillers I have ever seen!!! It's interesting and breathtaking from start!
The only reason I can't give it a 10/10 is because of the last two minutes! Stupid ending!
I get the whole "it's been done" thing but it's ridiculous!! If it was supposed to be cool - epic fail!
A scared teenager (Capricorn or not) and a 911 operator/policewoman do not become killers just like that. What about the other victims? Do they not care about their families? What if he escapes or found dead? How are they going to explain that? I get it was awful but still. Also, why in the world would they go back inside that hole? If you run, run! I didn't like it when Jordan got inside the first time. If you find a secret bunker you suspect a psychopath killer is inside, maybe don't go in all by yourself?! How did they even get in? The ladder was broken... Oh, and by the way, he seems totally ok smiling, talking and laughing with a huge gap in his face and a hole in his back. Stop trying to create an unusual ending, sometimes a good thriller is just good and you should leave it with that.
It's a real shame because other than that, the movie was amazing!
Den skyldige (2018)
Good but could be much better
For a low budget movie, with basically one main character, it's a good movie but I think it could have been much much better if it wasn't so slow paced and if we had a few shots of the other characters. The script is good! I loved the idea of showing the audience the perspective of the 911 operator. It was great to realize at the end that things are not always as they seem and what you thought was obvious turned out to be something else completely. Showing the other characters/callers shouldn't ruin that, on the contrary, it will make the movie more interesting and thrilling.
My main issue with the film is that it doesn't look like the 911 operators have enough resources to deal with an emergency case that requires multiple actions made at the same time. For example, it took the operator over four minutes to give the license plate to the officers on the field because he was talking to the little girl. Four minutes is along time and if you count the time since he actually talked to the victim, it over ten minutes! A lot can happen in ten minutes, especially when someone's life is on the line. Seems to me that the system isn't working right! Important information should move faster between the people working on the same case and the 911 operators should work together so one wouldn't have to hang up the phone on a scared 6 y/o girl. It's great that the film focuses on the main character but an emergency case like this shouldn't rest on the shoulders of one officer. From this point of view, The Call (2013) was much better made!
I'm also not so sure that the background story of the officer works. We don't really know what happened when he shot the young man he talked about except that apparently he was in the wrong and he feels guilty for killing him and making his partner cover for him. I'm not sure if it added much to the film. A "simple" case of self defense guilt could have worked just the same. The only reason I'm mentioning it is because his whole behavior was weird at times. For example, you're not supposed to destroy your workplace when you are frustrated and an officer shouldn't asks for favors from other officers (or break the law) to rescue a victim. The system should be ready to all sorts of emergencies and so are the 911 operators working on them. It's obviously a very stressful job.
I'd love to see an American version made. A bigger budget and more action would make it a 10/10 instead of a 7/10. Hollywood take notes!
What the heck was that??
What an awful conclusion to the Rob Miller story. It started out great but ended up terrible!
Instead of finding real evidence against him, Stone chose to break the rules because Olivia was so important to him. So important that he just had to leave...?
The whole thing felt rushed and it didn't even make sense. We didn't get to hear how he was involved in the case of the dead teen. If she fell off the sky, who's helicopter was that? How was Miller involved? If there was a party, there had to be a lot of people there, right? Did Miller scared them all? Where's the good police work we're used to? All we got was "we have nothing against him". He threatened Olivia many times, what about wearing a wire? The idea of setting him up was good but not in the way it was done. Nikki was so afraid to testify against him for assaulting her but was not afraid to testify against him when his lawyer called her to the stand? Why? Was he not a threat anymore? Are we supposed to believe the jury convicted him based on Nikki's "show" alone? I didn't like it! It felt rushed, like they had to wrap up the Rob Miller story real fast and at the same time find a way out for Stone. It didn't make sense. It was also not a great way for Stone to go. Didn't Barbra leave exactly the same way? Do all ADA's have to leave by breaking the rules? I liked Stone. I was sorry to see him go! I thought he and Olivia could have a future together but I guess not (again). Maybe it's time for a female ADA.
Annabelle Comes Home (2019)
I don't know why people are so hard on this movie. It's pretty good. Not as good as the first Annabelle movie but still good. There's nothing original or new about it and at times is a bit slow but the acting is good and there are some pretty creepy moments in it. Could have been better if Ed and Lorraine had a more substantial role in it but it's an interesting addition to the Annabelle movies. If you liked the first two movies, there's no reason not to watch it.
Welcome Home (2018)
Better than expected
I liked this film. It's a good thriller. Well acted by both Aaron Paul and Emily Ratajkowski. Slow paced at first but still interesting. As the movie progresses it becomes more scary and creepy. Makes you think about the danger of using Airbnb and being in an unfamiliar isolated environment.
Some reviewers mentioned it's been done before and that's true but it was interesting and I liked the ending so I think it's worth a watch.
It's another over the top revenge story. Unrealistic and with no explanation as to how and where she did all that training. Stealing 45k and traveling around the world doesn't make you a superhero. There's not enough character development, just a lot of fight scenes and gun fires. The whole thing just felt kinda flat. It watchable but it's not good.
The Curse of La Llorona (2019)
Decent horror film
The Curse of La Llorona is another spin-off of the Conjuring Universe franchise (the sixth if I'm not mistaken).
It's an interesting film based on the Mexican folklore of la llorona, the weeping woman. The legend tells of a woman who was abandoned by her husband and out of grief and anger drowned their two young boys in a river. As a result of her actions the woman is condemned to wander for all eternity searching for her lost children. She is always heard weeping for her children, earning her the name "La Llorona". It is said that she kidnaps wandering children at night, mistaking them for her own.
It's a decent horror movie, spooky with lots of jump scares. If you're looking for "the next big thing", this movie is not for you but as a spin-off it's pretty good. Personally, I liked it way better than "The Nun" (it made more sense to me than that story).
Modern Family: Snapped (2019)
It's not funny anymore
I used to love this show so much! I still kinda do but I don't have a lot of reasons to love it anymore. The cast is great but it's just not funny anymore. The jokes are so forced! All the characters act like they are their own cartoons. It's so fake, there's nothing real about it.
Take Haley and Dylan for example, there's so much REAL funny things that happen to inexperienced young parents but instead they waste it on Dylan having a sunburn in a shape of a baby and Haley getting a black eye from... a baby. Really? Same with Mitch and Cam. We all use electronics and smart devices too much and it can get in the way of relationships (like when everyone is so busy with their smartphones that they don't even talk anymore), but how many people buy them flowers? If you ever bought your smartphone flowers please mark my review as unhelpful.
Seriously, it's getting ridiculous! The show was funny and successful because it was REAL. Now it's neither.
It's such a shame!
The Prodigy (2019)
I've seen tons of horror movies so the concept of possession or reincarnation is familiar to me. I would describe this case as more of a possession case rather than reincarnation but when you talk about possession you usually think of a demon or some sort of supernatural entity. In this case, it's a human who possessed Miles, a monster human but still human so that's why I think they chose to call it reincarnation. Either way, I found the doctor's explanation to be pretty good.
As for the film itself, there's nothing unique about it but at the same time it really creeped me out!! I think it's not just the story, it's the acting. The kid is doing a really good job and so are the parents. Everything about it was really scary even the parts that were totally predictable!
I wish there was a better ending for the family. I know it's not the way horror movies usually go but I was really rooting for the mother. I was really hoping she can get that monster out of her son's body and get the happy ending she was hoping for.
On the other hand, the ending does leave a lot of available options for a sequel. Miles (or Scarka) is with a new family so lots can happen next but what is more interesting is what can happen with the parents. The father is still alive and we don't know what happened to the mother, she could be dead but she could also be in jail or maybe in a mental institution. An interesting sequel would be of the two parents trying to stop Scarka. Until now they were trying to save their son but now that he's gone they could work together with the doctor to stop the monster everybody else see as an innocent boy. If they ever decide to make a sequel that would be really interesting to watch!
BEST animated movie EVER!!!
This is without a doubt my favorite animated film. It's PERFECT from start to finish!
The storyline, the characters, the animation, the songs, the message - EVERYTHING about it is flawless!!
Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi and Donna Murphy are doing an excellent job!
It's sweet, magical and funny and it just can get any better than that!
I stopped counting how many times I've watched it over and over again but I seriously don't think I'll ever see anything better because it's just perfect!!
If you haven't watched it yet - go NOW!! You won't regret it!!
And just for the record, I got to say - it is way better than Frozen, Shrek and any other successful movies I've seen and loved.
Great but for the last 5 minutes...
I really like Jason Momoa. He brings depth and personality to every character he plays.
Here he plays a man trying to protect his family from armed drug dealers who stashed a bag full of drugs in his cabin (a cabin they thought is not been used).
It's a decent action movie. Lots of interesting moments, you won't get bored. I would totally rated it 8/10 if not for the last 5 minutes. That last fight was too over the top for me. All action movies contain unrealistic moments but that was just too much for me to swallow.
If you like Jason Momoa maybe give it a shot.
Edge of Darkness (2010)
I loved the basic storyline, a daughter of a homicide detective is murdered at point-blank on his front porch. The police investigates the murder under the assumption that the father was the real target but he believes they are wrong and embarks on his own personal investigation to find out the truth and catch those who are responsible for his daughter's death.
Unfortunately, the movie is just not good. It's watchable but the acting is not convincing at all and the story gets complicated with corruption and conspiracy involving too many people. It's not hard to understand but it just feels messy and the movie ends up being pretty mediocre.
Mel Gibson gives a poor performance and there's not enough character development. I didn't feel anything for the grieving father and the other characters didn't seem important enough. Plus, the dialogue is really bad. I didn't see the original series on the BBC but I heard it's much better. Shame, cause I think it had potential.
I Am Number Four (2011)
Classic teen movie
It cheesy, it's cute, it's a classic teen movie. A boy from another planet falls in love with a human girl. Bad UFO's are coming after him. He doesn't want to run anymore and decide to fight back. There are lots of special effects and everything you expect from a teen movie of this kind. You got the high school bullies, the dorky friend, the guardian, the cute girl etc.
I have not read the books but the movie is ok for its niche. Nothing special.
All the Money in the World (2017)
I was really looking forward to watching this movie. I thought: amazing true story, good cast, great director... It has to be great, right? WRONG!!!
I'm very disappointed! First of all, there was absolutely no need to change the story. This shouldn't have been a movie that was "inspired" by real events. Meaning, they should have stuck with the actual story, step by step. What happened to John Paul Getty III is absolutely astonishing! Why in the world would they change it is beyond me! The details that were left out of the movie and the things they added to it (that didn't really happen) only destroyed the story!
Second, this is not Mark Wahlberg's and Michelle Williams' best performances. Christopher Plummer and Charlie Plummer did a much better job.
Third, I didn't like the pace of the movie. It was slow and boring at parts.
All in all, it wasn't what I expected from a Ridley Scott movie! The only thing I really liked was the title of the movie because it is so true and accurate - all the money in the world couldn't saved this family.
This could and should have been a breathtaking movie!
Let Me In (2010)
I didn't see the original so I can't say if it's better or worse but I'm disappointed with this movie.
I love vampire movies, I love good horror movies and I always care about kids that are being bullied but this movie just didn't hit the right spots for me.
I love Chloë Grace Moretz but even she couldn't carry this film. It wasn't scary, it didn't make a lot of sense and to be honest I didn't really care about the main characters. I watched it all the way through but I think they just missed the mark on this one. It was mostly just weird.
Cheesy, terrible and fun!
I don't know if it's the movie or maybe it's the mood I'm in but sometimes I watch a really bad movie and I still have a lot of fun. This is one of those times.
I'll start with the cons: The CGI/special effects/costumes are REALLY bad! Some reviewers mentioned that they look like the Power Rangers and I agree, they really do. I also think there should be some physical differences between underwater people and regular people. They didn't have any fins or scales or anything like that. The only thing that was different was their wardrobe which, as mentioned, was really bad!
The script also needed a lot more work in my honest opinion. I wish they'd put more emphasis on the way the two brothers were raised and their claim to the throne instead of on all those stupid wars and fights.
On the plus side, the actors did a great job! I really like Jason Momoa! Patrick Wilson, Amber Heard and Willem Dafoe also did a great job. There's a lot of action and fun moments in the movie so if you're in a mood to see a fun cheesy superhero action movie, go for it. Just don't forget the popcorn!
7/10 is probably a little too high of a score but I watched it on TV (meaning I didn't pay anything to watch it) and I did enjoy it so I'm feeling generous. Enjoy!
World War Z (2013)
What's not to like?!
Lots of action, tons of zombies, world's in danger, awesome special effects and one super hot Brad Pitt. What's not to like?! Lol... :)
Mediocre with lots of unanswered questions
This movie had potential but ended up being pretty mediocre. I found the first half to be mostly boring but I kept on watching because I wanted to know what was real and what was not. I was also curious to learn what did the brothers do that led the main character to be institutionalized in a mental hospital.
While the second half was more interesting and did answer some of the questions I had, it still left too many unanswered questions.
Here are some: CAREFUL: SPOILER ALERT!!!
1. Why did the dad kill himself? 2. If Tom wasn't hallucinating why was he seeing the dead dad and dog? 3. Who was watching through those peepholes and why? 4. Why did the father locked his wife under the pool? 5. Why did he cut off her tongue? 6. Why was there even a phone in her cell if she couldn't talk? 7. How did she survive all these years? 8. What did the brothers know when they were kids? 9. What was the interaction between all of them that led to the distraction of this once happy family? 10. What happened to the older brother that made him become a killer at a young age? 11. How did he break out of jail? 12. Why wasn't he surprised to see his mother? 13. If he knew she was there why was he surprised to learn about this secret room? 14. Why didn't he help her when he found her there (whenever that was)? 15. Why did he shoot her? 16. Why didn't Tom tried to save his mother from drowning (he couldn't have known she was dead)?
I think they spend too much time on the whole "is this all in his head" thing. Time that could have been better spent on answering these questions. Shame.
The Emoji Movie (2017)
Fun movie (mainly for kids)
I don't understand why the score is so low. Yes, it's not the movie of the century and yes there's advertising in it but the animation is good and the main character is likable. The plot is pretty straight forward, in the emoji world every emoji have to keep his one face on at all times but one emoji just can do it and he goes on a quest to fix himself so he can be like everybody else.
I think it is mostly for kids but I don't see a reason why the whole family couldn't watch it together.
I guess, if you're looking for something extraordinary or super clever, then it's probably not for you but if you just want to watch a fun animated movie with your kids, there's no reason not to enjoy it.
Interesting but long and confusing
It's not a bad movie but it's also not as amazing as people say it is. The cast is great, the story is interesting but it's just too long and complicated. The more I think about it, the more confused I'm. Maybe it's me, maybe I just didn't get it but I don't think this movie makes a lot of sense. I also didn't like the ending. All throughout the movie we want to see the reunion between the father and the daughter and in the end it's something between weird and sad. If you're crazy for sci-fi movies, give it a try. If not, I'd probably skip it.
This is just sad!
What an awful movie! There's absolutely nothing there! It's not scary, there's no story, I couldn't care less about the characters, the acting is really bad, no atmosphere, nothing. It doesn't even make sense. The murderer is basically a zombie that goes around randomly killing people. Apparently nothing can stop him, not the bus accident he was involved in, not being run over by a police car, not being shot in the back, not losing a hand, just a ridiculous trap made by an insane old woman. The police acts like they're all a bunch of idiots, the doctor is more crazy than the patient, the psychological background to the whole thing is somewhere between weird and stupid. It's just sad! There's really NOTHING good to say about this film. What a complete waste of time!
The Accountant (2016)
What a spectacular performance! Ben Affleck at his best! The rest of the cast are also very good! I didn't know anything about this movie so I didn't have high expectations. I was flipping through the channels when I came across this one. It's a good action movie but with depth. The characters development is amazing! It's hard not to feel for both the good guys and the bad (although sometimes it's hard to know who's who). The pace is good and there are a lot of moral questions involved. I loved how it gives you a whole new way to look at what's "different". At how we see, feel and measure those who are different from us. It's a great thriller, it might not be perfect but it sure is close! Highly recommended!
Recipe for a fun monster movie
Mix one giant gorilla, one giant wolf, one giant crocodile, one Dwayne Johnson, lots of unrealistic action and a great sense of humor and you get an awesome action movie. Don't forget the popcorn!
Had a real potential...
The idea of a demon attacking people in their sleep causing nightmares and sleepwalking is very interesting. Could be really scary since we all have to sleep and we all have our own fears.
Unfortunately, this movie is a big disappointment. I like to watch horror movies at night (most scary) and in this one, somewhere around the middle of the movie, I literally fell asleep. The first half was mostly boring and the second half was missing some real action and a good solution. I also didn't feel any real connection to the main characters. No real character development. It wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen. It was just very mediocre and the ending was very predictable. Shame! I think that with a better script and probably a bigger budget someone can make a real good movie out of this idea. Good luck next time!
