Girlboss (2017)

I Had Fun
26 April 2017
I decided to watch this show a few weeks ago when I have seen the trailer and I am happy I did.

This is a great mix between light comedy and realistic drama. Every person with a passion would appreciate this show and the leading character. Britt Robertson is awesome, she had here moments in which she shows how here personality is complicated, in the last episode she gave a performance that you don't even expect in a comedy show.

I really recommend to any person who appreciate passion and free life and wants to have some laughs.

Legion: Chapter 1 (2017)

What an Interesting Plot !!
13 February 2017
Warning: Spoilers
Just to be clear about it, all of us have wished a live-action t.v. show about X-men and here it comes finally. It's a show about David Haller, who was diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, is he really ill ?! thats what we go through during this episode. The main character in this episode is definitely the director, he made us live what David had suffered, I was so annoyed and tired with the confusing music and the camera rounding but that what he meant to do exactly.

I have two problems with this episode, the first one is that it is too long with no much events, I thinks it would have been better if it was only 40-45 minutes. The second problem is that the visual effects at the last scene was terrible for me, it would have been much better, otherwise every thing was great.

My rating is 9/10

Nothing Special But You Can Get Nothing But Excited
8 February 2017
As usual I have experienced a great episode of acting, directing & writing of one of the best series airing these days that proves that he deserves that place every episode. I just want to explain my admiration of the frames of the directors, they make us really appreciate the work we watch.

Both Oona Chaplin & Jefferson Hall shined in this episode as Zilpha Geary & Thorne Geary respectively, I also love every scene that Mark Gatiss shows in it as Prince Regent , he is really great and makes me smile.

During this episode James Delaney continues his plan and attempt but he found himself in a blackmailed position from the Americans so he will have to hurry up the industry of gun powder and through this he deals with his son that we don't know there story yet, but his son doesn't know that Delaney is his father, what I love about that is that we still know that James Delaney has emotions, he has love despite his Savagery and psychopathy.

My rating for this episode is 8.5/10

That's How You Do Movies
6 February 2017
If you do appreciate a well-done movie, great acting, awesome cinematography & a very Compatible sound track, you have to see this movie. If you do love car chases and some action scenes, you will find them in here but that's not what the movie is made for. In this masterpiece you will find Action, Romance & awesome drama. You will obligated to got emotional to some characters in this movie, which show you how well it is written.

They have a great cast, it was enough for me to know that Ryan Gosling and Bryan Cranston are in this movie to hurry to watch it and Gosling had really given the performance of his life and Cranston made us feel really sorry for him. Everyone in this cast was great even the child.

Don't expect to watch something like or close to transporter, you are going to watch a highly tense, dramatic, bloody masterpiece.

My rating is 9/10.

I Didn't Get Bored But I Also Didn't Laugh So It is BAD
3 February 2017
Ben Stiller , Jonah Hill & Vince Vaughn in one movie and I didn't even laugh for once and what made me more disappointed that Seth Rogen is one of the the writer of this,god forgive me, movie. So it is a complete crime.

there is nothing wrong with there acting but there is so many wrong things in their script, not even an move or a word that made me laugh. So I am asking for a trial by combat to the creators of this disaster.

the only good thing that I can see in this movie is nothing but the acting which is normal for such a crew.

Even the aliens design is so traditional, if there is a little funny thing about them is their weak-point. The visual effects of the explosions was a total rubbish.

My rating is 3/10 and those 3 points are only for the acting and the effort that done by the actors .

So Emotional and Also Funny
3 February 2017
Warning: Spoilers
I had so much fun enjoying this movie and I got so touched and had to Wipe my eyes at some moments. I loved seeing the story of a young fellow who is having a healthy life got a cancer from no where and without any reason that makes anyone feel that, he got this to himself, it was totally his destiny and he has nothing to do with it. what makes it more harder that it is a rare kind of tumor that is hard to be treated. So you go through his story and his relationships with his family, friend, girlfriend & his therapist.

All the actors were so great, starting from his father which had only one scene to express his feelings and it totally touched me, and his mother who loves him but in the way that all mums do and we don't like it, to his friend which is played by Seth Rogen who has really great in this role and I loved him a lot, and I will neglect his girlfriend because I just hated her which by the way means that (Bryce Dallas Howard ) did it right. To Anna Kendrick as his therapist which hasn't become a doctor yet.

Everything was just great about this movie, I highly recommend it, My rating is 9/10

It Never Stops to Impress Me
2 February 2017
What this series do in me, is that it makes me fully satisfied but for an anonymous reason I just want more and more and more. It is a well-made episode, it takes us more inside the true madness of James Delaney ( Tom Hardy) and it made me feel that there is more than true madness behind this person, there is love, there is fear, there is secret, there is more. That's what makes me need more of that.

The directing was amazing as always also the acting and the writing, I was afraid that they may take too much time in some stories but they nearly finished an important one in this episode and that comforted me.

I just want to thank Jefferson Hall for his performance in this episode as (Thorne Geary) which was very respectable.

My rating for this episode is 9/10.

Not As Bad As I Thought
29 January 2017
First of all, There are two things that make this movie acceptable, the story which is based on a novel and Willem Dafoe who really impressed me, everything else was just bad.

Matthew Wilder who wrote the screenplay, please just stop it, don't write anymore, it's bad. you literally ruined this good story, it could have been much better with such a team.

Cage was pretty good, didn't do something special but he was good, The same is for Christopher Matthew Cook, The only one who was special in this movie is the great Willem Dafoe.

I don't highly recommend this movie but if you love Cage or Dafoe you should see.

MY rating is 5.5/10

The Great Wall (I) (2016)
7/10
Well !! I Didn't Hate it at all
25 January 2017
One of the best visual and entertaining experience of The great Yimou Zhang who brought to us some of the memorable Chinese movies. I was totally impressed by his technique in picturing the defense of the Great Wall of China against the monsters. The machines that were used by the Chinese army were very creative and enjoyable for me and I believe to all the audience.

I am not saying that the story could have been a lot better and it has more than few mistakes but that doesn't mean that I really enjoyed the movie. From the mistakes of the movie is the relationship between our Hero William Garin (Matt Damon) & Commander Lin Mei (Tian Jing) which wasn't that emotional and I really didn't care about it at all which makes it a mistake. One the other side we have the relation between William and his friend Pero Tovar (Pedro Pascal)which was very good and ended perfectly.

In total it's an entertaining movie, no more no less, so don't expect more from it.

My rating is 7/10.

Just Imagine A Con Show with Bryan Cranston in It
24 January 2017
Don't wait for a great drama but wait for a great excitement and just tell me, would you dare to not watch a show with Bryan Cranston ?! huh would you?!! you would have the experience that you hoped for with him since breaking bad, he did to scenes that deserves every credit.

Now to talk about Giovanni Ribisi who at the beginning you will feel there is some problem with his acting but you will get that that's how (Marius Josipovic) should exactly be and he just nailed it by showing us fear, anxiety with thinking all the time, he showed us how to be exactly a con man. I have to thank Peter Gerety (Grand Pa) and Margo Martindale (Grand Ma) who I was really impressed by there performance.

The show was directed by 9 directors so I didn't really feel a specific mark and it was pretty ordinary with no mistakes, The show was also written by 9 writers who I have only one problem with it and it is the beginning which took us to a side story with no importance in the main line and I really hated it.

I would recommend this show for TV-addicts like me who have free time to watch such impressive cons and tricks and enjoy the company of Bryan Cranston.

My rating for the first season is 8.5/10

9/10
Not as Perfect as The Previous Episode But Still Excellent
24 January 2017
It is the Perfect ending to highly good show, It's a show that you watch in you free time in a mood of watching some tricks and con. Not the best drama but the best excitement. In This episode they have given us what they had promised through the whole season and they nailed it.

Bryan Cranston did his best scene in my opinion after "Breaking Bad" in this episode, he will make you feel fear, compassion, anger & love in one moment, you will end up not knowing if you hate him or not, Mr. Cranston was simply born to act, and he was just simply being himself.

The episode ended up by opinion a new interesting story for the next season and made us exciting about it.

My rating for this episode is 9/10.

The Best Episode So Far
23 January 2017
You will feel like the creators have saved all the story changing events to this episode which isn't a pretty good thing for me, I would loved the previous episodes to have some of that but here we are.

I liked that nearly every member of the family had a very important role, especially those in this episode, you couldn't expect what is going to happen and also don't expect that you will like it, but I assure you will enjoy it.

The black horse of this show is definitely Grand Pa ( Otto Bernhardt ) played by Peter Gerety he impressed me in all ways and I can't forget Grand Ma (Audrey) which forms a perfect old couple with him.

It's just a mind blowing episode and it totally deserves 9.5/10

It's Getting Darker & Better
23 January 2017
Do you know how to tolerate pain ? No you don't, James Delaney Do. Believe me you will know how exactly a psychopath is with Tom Hardy in this show. You will have an unforgettable experience of madness and illusion. By watching this show you are not watching a good drama as much as you are watching a great madness, something like The Joker but with visual illusion to us and without words, all of this was showed in this episode perfectly and the credit to all of that in my opinion is for the incredible Kristoffer Nyholm.

I enjoyed every thing from the acting and the directing to the decor and the soundtrack, every thing was simply perfect, it's a show that deserves my time.

I only hope for it to keep it up and wouldn't mind at all for some more.

The Best Moment in The Show So Far
20 January 2017
Now We have something to blow our minds and make us cover our eyes terrifying. Bryan Cranston have given us the best scene in this show so far, I really miss you Mr. White, by showing us his true evil.

This episode have nice events like the previous episodes and everything went as normal till what happened at the end, you will just love it. Now I am more excited about this show and wish that they keep it up like that.

I have to mention Peter Gerety's performance which really impressed me in this episode and without forgetting Michael Drayer who had his chance and nailed it in the best way showing us the true FEAR.

My rating for this episode is 9/10 and I am really excited about the next episodes.

Still Not That Good
20 January 2017
The episode isn't bad But I am greedy I want more and more, the show didn't impress me yet. The acting is good, the directing is good but my issue is with the script, It is pretty confusing, Please just focus on the main subject, enough of side story.

Pete still great and Cranston forms an excellent villein ,only for Pete, and I really liked officer James Bagwell who is played by Malcolm-Jamal Warner, he have a good charisma and presence,and we are having good time with them but we need more suspense and twists. So all I am asking for is more excitement and get rid of the side stories like any other show on open channels.

My rating is 8/10.

Trust No One
19 January 2017
First of all, This movie is one of 2015 TOP movies and one of the best movies concerned with The Press work. Talking about very sensitive subject for the American community and was a real shock for most of the world which child molestation by some Priest and the Church's tries to cover this up.

The movie was very interesting and introduced the subject in a very thrilling way in a subject that may seem "how would they make a great movie from that?" and the credit for that returns to the writers of this masterpiece.

During this movie you will feel disgusted and fooled many times and you wish you weren't born in this world. How on earth this is happening !! But this is our world and we have to face it, we are here so face it. Enjoy the movie, Enjoy your life but just don't shut up and make yourself blind because it could have been you or your child, that's what this movie is saying to us.

I loved the movie a lot and my rating is 9/10.

I hope For More
19 January 2017
The show is pretty good but still not excellent, In my opinion it's main problem is that it is distracted from the main story line with non important stories, So I hope they focus on the main line in the upcoming episodes.

Now I have to talk about Bryan Cranston, one of my top favorite actors, he just nailed it in this character but I hoped it was written more evil and sadistic but it's pretty ordinary in my opinion.

I enjoyed the scenes between Cranston & Giovanni Ribisi a lot and I really need more of it.

Not bad and I hope for more and more to be a show that deserves Bryan Cranston.

My rating is 8.5/10

An Interesting Start
19 January 2017
First of all, it was enough for me to know that Bryan Cranston is in this show to start to watch it. The show starts with a nice scene and continues in a story that you feel at first that it is a side story but believe me it's not. But actually it was boring for me till we were close to the end when thing got interested.

Giovanni Ribis, at first you feel that there is something wrong with him performing Pete / Marius but you will get that this is exactly how he supposes to be.

Not the best episode you can see but it's not bad and I hope for better.

Good Bye Jack
18 January 2017
Every Thing is normal because it is familiar to you not because it is normal. Do you wanna understand what this means?! Just GO and see the is masterpiece.

A very emotional experience that deserves all of our respect. You wouldn't even Know what is the best thing in the movie, Is it the acting, Is it the emotion? Is it the screenplay ? Is it Jack ?! I think it's definitely Room.

You are about to watch a new respectable talent of a 9 years old boy Jacob Tremblay who had shown me the best performance by a young actor I have ever seen, and we cannot forget our academy award winner Brie Larson who definitely deserved every award she got.

This movie deserves every minute of your time.

You Can Still Love in Apocalypse
16 January 2017
In my modest opinion it is an underrated movie. Of course it has it's mistake but still had shown us some good things. you will go through the interesting life of three characters who have fallen in love triangle which was pretty exciting and interesting for me and this was introduced by many great ways.

To start with the soundtrack which was great and made us blend with the events. Then we cannot deny the great performance by both Margot Robbie who proved to me that she is a great actress and Chiwetel Ejiofor who is one of my favorite actors, Chris Pine wasn't bad but he wasn't as good as them. The Maestro of this piece is Craig Zobel who has shown to us his own personality in his work and he has a respectable view who I totally loved.

You live 90 minutes of love struggling which ended in the best way it could by showing us that love is always the same whatever the world is.

Draft Day (I) (2014)
7/10
Very Entertaining
15 January 2017
I actually barley Know a thing about The American Football and it was difficult for me to get what is happening at first but nearly to the end I understand it totally. The movie will but you in what really happens during The Draft Day with a lot of excitement and expecting.

It's fun to watch it at the end for calm day while you are resting and eating some snacks and don't want to tire your mind with a heavy movie, It's simply an interesting light movie.

Kevin Costner was great as always but I really didn't felt him as guy who still in a new relation ship with Jennifer Garner who is more than 10 years younger than him but it's OK, It's Kevin Costner after all.

I Have High Expectations For This Show
15 January 2017
The First episode had blown my mind Tom Hardy's psychopathy, the amazing directing, the nicely made costumes specially those of (James Delaney) which express his personality. Then we go to the second episode which didn't blow me as the first but I enjoyed it a lot with a great ending for the episode.

So we obviously are watching a show that is gonna leave a mark in the battle of series. It is great in all ways you cannot even find a big mistake, If I would say one it may be for an instant I felt it a little bit slow in the events but the show for me is James Keziah Delaney not what will happen finally so I don't mind at all.

I hope it keeps up like that and I absolutely wish for more.

Still Excellent But I Hope for More
15 January 2017
The episode was great as the first one and I really loved how it ended but I wished for more this time. I am not saying I didn't enjoy , I did enjoy it, I am saying that it didn't add much to the first one. You will enjoy a small twist that I hope to be used well and a hell of great dialogue and awesome acting & costumes.

Tom Hard still amazing and he was a little bit bloody, sadistic & more psychopathic and we cannot forget Kristoffer Nyholm the main mind of this whole story and one of the new coming strong shows.

You will have a good time with the episode but don't hope for much.

Lone Survivor (2013)
9/10
Emotional , Stressful & Political
14 January 2017
I have expressed a very emotional couple of hours with a lot of stress. The movie show you what an American soldier go through during his duty. The ending of the story isn't a mystery, it's obvious from the movie name and also from the beginning scene, the enjoyment of the movie is what really happened not how it ends.

Peter Berg managed to make us really feel what did the four soldier suffered in their mission, in late June 2005. You will even feel been inside from what happened to them. His picture was respectful and done well.

I have to talk about Mark Wahlberg who proves to me in every movie that he is a great actor with great talent.

I enjoyed my time watching this epic mission and feeling sorry from my deep heart.

You Will End This Movie Cursing The Stupidity
14 January 2017
With no reasonable reason this movie become one of my favorite, I don't actually Know why but I loved it. Maybe it's because the amazing acting by Brad Pitt and how he really made me love Achilles or because of the amazing fighting scenes specially those of Achilles or maybe because of how much I hated Paris which was played by Orlando Bloom or because of the amount of stupidity the really bothered me, I actually don't know.

Wolfgang Petersen ,the German director, did an acceptable work in this movie with few mistakes that I am not going to talk about because they aren't of much importance. David Benioff wrote one of his best screenplays and made me love and hate Achilles at the same time.

The whole acting team were amazing except Orlando Bloom which didn't give his best and I think I hated him because of how the character was written not because of his acting.

After all I really loved it and enjoyed the whole 3 hours.
