Where the Wild Things Are (2009)
Children's movie about the subconscious
This is a children's movie about the subconscious that even adults can get into. It's about a boy that delves into his subconscious in order to deal with neglect and the longing to fit in. And each character he has a chance of connecting with has a persona that is from him or others that he knows of. What got to me was the connection between Me and Max, cause just about every adult had a childhood. And how the news of brutality can really effect a child and his or her thought process. It's kind of a depressing story, but a story that still has a bit of hope at the end. The relationship with Max and the Beasts is actually quite intricate if you delve more into it the characters themselves. I can understand why this movie wasn't a box office hit, but it's still worth a watch fr sure.
Blue Jasmine (2013)
Really good team up between Woody Allen and Cate Blanchett
This is one of Woody Allen stories that brings out the inner thoughts of the people who is living in a disillusioned state of being. After going from glamour to rags and how these people cope with it. And how when certain things get taken away from people like them, they can go a bit crazy. For some, it can lead to inner thoughts that can elevate them into being a more empathetic and understanding state. While the others like Jasmine who lives in a disillusioned state and brings out her disillusion to others. It can be understandable to a certain extent and yet it becomes pitiful. Watching a story like this where the disillusionment gets shattered and the brutality of reality intervenes. Woody did a really thought out job with this one when it comes to the human conscious. Like when it comes to wealth and relationships that revolve around wealth. This is more of a tragedy than a comedy, but it isn't a super dark film either. Overall I liked the progression and believable aspects of this film. Cate Blanchett's performance is top notch in this one as well.
Luftslottet som sprängdes (2009)
Still didn't really care
Like is a movie that doesn't revolve around detective work really, but revolves more around politics while delving more into Lisbeth's path. Sure it's a different movie that goes in a different path, but this is still a major downgrade compared to the first one. There is a lot going on here, so I understand how it can be difficult to merge the book into a 3 hour movie form. But it's still bland and I couldn't care less about the story. Nothing was really captivating or compelling and lacked the enriched experience the first one in this trilogy had. I give this movie a 4 because the part when the bad guys get taken down was actually quite gratifying. And because I at least appreciate the effort to turn this from book to movie form without going overboard. Besides that there just wasn't any moments that made me really care.
Flickan som lekte med elden (2009)
The book is probably better...Actually I am sure it's better. Because this movie was boring as hell and it was painful to sit through. It's like the quality and intensity dropped by miles. I was shocked at how boring this movie was, because of how good the first one is. This time Lisbeth and Mikael are apart and it delves more into Lisbeth's background. While other stuff is going on, like some sort of threat to an organization and stuff. First it mentions sex trafficking a couple of times, so I thought it was going to be about solving the sex trafficking case. But it goes in a poorly constructed direction...Maybe it did a poor job of following the book or something because this movie is boring. Especially for a 3 hour movie, it was painful to sit through. This is suppose to be a action thriller, but it doesn't have any memorable or cool action or thrills.
Män som hatar kvinnor (2009)
Awkward partnership that works
This is a invigorating, immersive and raw mystery/thriller that despite the running time had my attention from beginning to end. The team up, partnership is a bit awkward but it works and just like I said invigorating to watch. Also the detective elements is cleverly constructed, and it makes you feel like a detective while watching to a degree. And I especially liked the raw aspect of things in this movie and made me personally care about what was going on. The acting is good as well as the cinematography. So yeah, just about everything about the plot to the characters was interesting and fun to watch. It's a very well constructed mystery/thriller that is worth watching and will keep you interested from beginning to end.
Død snø 2 (2014)
I personally thought the first one was better. This one tried and I appreciate the effort that is put into this. But it just felt way too drawn out and the over the top moments seemed more silly than it actually being cool. There is no suspense or anything all that cool really, even if it has over the top blood and gore scenes. While the zombies were actually kind of intimidating and creepy in the first one it, just isn't the case here. I thought some ideas that are dumb and clever at the same time sort of worked, even if it doesn't make much sense if you think about it. Yeah, they created a new genre of zombies, but that doesn't make it particularly good or anything. So the zombies knows how to talk, communicate, fist fight, use weapons and be able to run. And the head of the zombie pack can resurrect the dead, without much explanation. The first "Dead Snow" was a survival movie...Well sort of. This one is a zombie brawl, it's somewhat entertaining for a while but it loses it's flavor quickly. I give this flick a 6.3/10 because of the effort, even if some parts of it seemed quite pointless.
Død snø (2009)
Fun splatter zombie movie
This is a low budget Norwegian zombie movie that is directed very well. Despite the budget, it doesn't seem like a really cheap movie at all. The build up is alright but when the zombie elements hit, it's pure entertainment. This isn't a serious zombie flick, but more of a zombie comedy. The humor works without getting overly silly, although it does get ridiculous at points. They actually made a new genre with this one...Maybe. Because the zombies in this can actually think, communicate and be able to wield weapons. The mystery behind the zombies is what drives this movie. This is a fun movie to watch with your friends with some snacks.
Ninja: Shadow of a Tear (2013)
Scott Adkins is back as the ninja, except not much ninja but still entertaining enough
Scott Adkins is back as the ninja warrior. It's still another cheesy movie, but I personally thought it was fun to watch. Even if the story didn't make much sense sometimes and some parts just seemed random. This is a low budget action movie, but it's still a good one. It's just cool to watch Scott Adkins do what he does best. And to watch a real martial artist in action that knows what he is doing. So yeah, it's has a passable story for a martial arts action movie and the fights are cool to watch and choreographed excellently. Even when it comes to the cinematography you know exactly what is going on, despite the quickness. Sure, there are some parts where the bad guys could have easily killed or apprehended the main character. But it's a movie and it was too distracting. Overall this is a cool martial arts ninja movie. Even if the ninja and stealth elements aren't really shown much.
Don't be fulled by the trailers, this isn't really a action movie. As a matter of fact there is't anything memorable when it comes to the action for this flick. This is a shallow movie that revolves around evolution. I personally thought this movie sucked and just didn't make sense in some areas. The movie "Limitless" was better in my opinion, which is another movie about a person being able to access 100% of brain capacity. This movie is rubbish and I was bored with this one. I give this movie a 2.6/10 because I liked the car chase scene. Which is probably the only cool part about this movie. Unfortunately this is another wasted potential that centers on just an idea.
Leslie, My Name Is Evil (2009)
Just go watch a documentary instead
The beginning few minutes seemed promising, but it started to go downhill from there. The thing is, this director had no idea where to take this movie so it just fall short in almost every level. It's primary focus isn't Leslie or Manson, and the protagonist seemed to be one of the juror Perry. The directing and editing isn't really good and I lost interest really quickly. There just isn't anything interesting or entertaining about this flick. I recommend just watching a documentary over this crap. Yeah, this movie was suppose to be satirical, but I didn't find anything humorous about it.
