I just hate it when movie companies shell out the exact same story that we've already seen. Why? Cause now we got Adrien Brody and Forest Whitaker? Come on...
a) Infernal Affairs (2002) = The Departed (2006) b) Ringu (1998) = The Ring(2002) c) Funny Games U.K (1997) = Funny Games U.S (2007) d) Das Experiment (2001) = The Experiment (2010)
Are you starting to get the picture? e) Let the right one in (2008) ( excellent movie that shouldn't have been altered ) = Let me in (2010). That's 2 years. Yes. Two years.
They don't even wait ten years nowadays, they can't wait to shove the same thing down your throat. Don't encourage them. Please.
Now the movie is awesome, great food for thought since I'm a Lucid Dreamer. See it, See it twice, then recommend it to someone who hasn't seen it.
All in all: This might be the new Matrix
The script is great and the storyline is awesome. The music is spot-on, the ending is perfect and you get the added bonus of having the voice of Kevin Spacey.
All in all: This is one hell of a one-man show. A masterpiece.
P.S. If you can you should watch Moon in high-definition.
Although I'd never seen actor Sean Biggerstaff ( the story's main character ) before I'm very much looking forward to seeing him in the future. As a matter of fact it's an all new cast for me. Cashback is a regular type story with an interesting mechanic and for guys who just want to see some T n' A don't worry, there's also a healthy dose of chicks naked.
All in all: A romantic drama with an artistic feel.
P.S. I love it in the credits when they show the actor's faces along with their names.
Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz click well on-screen. I always enjoy seeing Peter Sarsgaard ( check him out in " Garden State " ), Paul Dano (" There Will Be Blood ") and Jordi Molla whom I hadn't seen since " Blow ".
So take 1 part " Mr. and Mrs. Smith ", 1 part " True Lies ", add a dash of " The Bourne Identity " and... Voila! You get something like Knight & Day.
All in all: Humour. Action. Humour. Action. Repeat. You get the picture.
So many questions to answer for our two main characters Jeanne (Nathalie Baye) and Alex (Patrick Bruel). The entire supporting cast is also of note, from the interpretation of Alex's brother Julien played by actor Michael Cohen to Alex's current girlfriend Claire (Geraldine Pailhas).
All in all: This is a story of passion and romance set in France, not Hollywood.
Everyone eyes will be on South Africa in 2010. What better way to celebrate one of the most beloved story of peace and freedom than to re-enact the 1995 World of Rugby?
Let me ask You a question avid reader... Would an experienced movie watcher really pass up a movie directed by Clint Eastwood featuring Morgan Freeman?
All in all: This IS a feel-good drama but who doesn't need one sometimes?
No less than 13 characters to keep you entertained. Patrick Swayze: Awesome. Hilary Swank: Hysterical. Shawn Hatosy: Better than ever. I would like to tell you more but that would no doubt ruin a moment or two for you. What I can promise is that you will get the feel of a 2 hour long movie in about 80 minutes.
All in all: You get a lot of Bang for your Buck, so to speak.
I'm sure you can imagine what an anime title like "The Sword of the Stranger" might hold in store for you. A young boy named Kotaru and his faithful companion Tobimaru. A deadly swordsman with blue eyes. A hungry samurai with a troubled past. The Sword of the Stranger doesn't re-invent the wheel but it is more than the sum of it's parts.
All in all: If you enjoy anime watch it. You can also expect to hear a great score.
Well avid readers let me tell You. Most of our generation has felt the enormous pressures inflicted to us by our modern societies. We also have been exposed to a wide range of violent, sometimes brutal images. That being said, I'm sure most of us will admit to having fantasized in the past about robbing a bank or smacking your boss. Our main character Bill Williamson (Brendan Fletcher) takes it one step further...
It's a kind of movie you hate to like and like to hate. One thing IS for sure: Rampage will definitely keep your entertained. I think it's worth mentioning that Bill's best friend Evan (Shaun Sipos) makes a pretty cool second character. You might also recognize Bill's dad (Matt Frewer) and one of the cops (Michael Pare) from a bunch of movies not worth typing.
All in all: Original material, not too long, good entertainment.
