Bored out of my mind, 6 February 2014

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Just finished watching the first episode. And it was really boring. Storyline is so generic and unoriginal as can be. The hero who just cannot accept what they are, has been done to death. Making the hero a female does not change that. And yes I do know it has been adapted from a series of books. Just like so many other Twilight wannabe films or series the last few years. Everyone is looking for the next Hunger Games or Twilight instead of just making a good story. Special effects are terrible, the wolves look so wooden not getting the decent effect like the have in Teen Wolf. Acting lame to bad, nobody seems to be interested in their character everyone knows where this is going and they just seem to do it on autopilot. Don't get me wrong I love supernatural shows like Supernatural, Vampire Dairies and Teen Wolf even. But this one's just not doing it for me. I will probably watch a few more episodes. Just to see if it gets any better but so far I am not impressed.

How to make bad look at its worst, 24 December 2012

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

My girlfriend made me go and watch this because, and I quote, 'Jan Smit is so cute'. Where to begin? Story, total clichés, stolen from Titanic for the most part, bizarre, ridiculous, not making sense. Acting, wooden, without any feelings what so ever. Special effect, mediocre at best. The bombing of Rotterdam had a enormous impact on those who lived through it but in this movie that hardly comes foreward. It really deserved better then this piece of waste of time and effort. I saw this on Friday and until now, Monday, my gf has not mentioned a word about it. Her not talking about this movie is the best part of the movie. Save your money and time.

Nice feel good movie, 23 September 2011

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

First of all I would like to say that I like these types of stories so I am a bit bias. It's the story about, in this case a man, who is not satisfied with his life or at least so he thinks and who gets an opportunity to do it all over again. In this case it deals with a man who had a promising future as a footballplayer but whose leg gets injured in the finale game of the season that ended that prospect. Now he is farming soybeans and things don't go as planned. As I stated a familiar story with an ending that will not surprise the seasoned moviegoer. Never the less it's a really nice movie to watch it never gets too touchy feely and stuff, it has some nice humor in it and the acting goes from oke to good. Seeing Kurt Russel play in a movie is never a bad thing also I have to admit. I consider him a fantastic actor. In fact I think this movie would have been better if he had played the older character instead of the coach because Brian Presley does not have the looks of neither a high school student nor that of a father of 2 kids. Don't get me wrong he does not do a bad job I am just not buying it thats all but that is just my personal opinion. In all a nice movie without any real surprises but if you like feel good movies then this one should give you that feeling. I surely felt it. To sum up, not truly original, nice acting and it leaves you with a warm feeling inside, all in all not a bad effort. 6/10 from me.

Excellent drama, 19 September 2011

Excellent drama with very good acting all around. The story has the potential to keep us guessing what is really going on for some time I think. The story about an American marine that gets saved after being held captive for years by terrorists is engaging and well thought out. The only weak link in this is the storyline of the husband and wife that just seems to be a little bit forced. Its also good to see Mandy Patinkin again who I think is a wonderful actor. Damian Lewis is as always giving his all with moments of brilliance. Only Claire Danes looks likes she does not completely believe what she is saying but I am sure that she will grow into her role. I hope the writers can keep up the standard of the first episode. 8/10 from me and hoping it will get more in the future. 1 and 3/4 thumbs up!!
