The Cook, The Thief, His Wife And Her Lover

The Cook, The Thief, His Wife And Her Lover (1989)

Directed by: Peter Greenaway
Starring: Time Roth. Alan Howard, Michael Gambon, Helen Mirren, Richerd Bohringer, Ciaran Hinds

Synopsis: The wife of an oafish restaurant owner becomes bored with her husband and considers an affair with a regular patron.

An old-scholl allstar cast, in a bit older movie. Expections were high and the result was even higher. Damn this movie is twisted like hell, but you'll love it and there's nothing you can do about it. I saw dong about 4-7 times during that movie and Helen Mirrens bush atleast twice. Damn.. Actors with such a caliber naked, is something else. If the opening doesn't shock you, then wait until the endd. Lightharted people may puke. So Consider it a warning. The plot is what I love the most, but the dialogue comes close at second. The way Michael Gambon talks and acts, it's just brilliant. You have great tits like a cow - something to say to your wife infront of everybody. It just don't know what else to say about this movie, you have to see it yourself to figure out how awesome this is. Final Verdict?? Watch it, I don't know how, I don't even care how, by download, via internet, buy it even, just see this movie. God, it ain't that hard.

Also, I'm wishing everybody a good weekend. Because I really dislike Christamas, but Santa > Jesus. No offence to Christians, but you guys have to believe in yourself more. Bye.

Big Night

Big Night (1996)

Directed by: Stanley Tucci, Campbell Scott
Starring: Stanley Tucci, Tony Shalhoub, Minnie Driver, Ian Holm, Isabella Rossellini, Allison Janney

Synopsis: A bittersweet story of two brothers in search of the American dream. Primo and Secondo Pilaggi are Italian immigrants who settle on the New Jersey shore and open a restaurant, the Paradise, hoping to strike rich. Primo, the elder brother, is a master chef from the Old World who is concerned only with quality and authenticity in the kitchen. econdo, the younger brother and business manager, is all too eager to compromise if it means more customers and cash. Teetering on the blink of failure, the brothers learn that the famed Italian-American musician Louis Prima is performing in the area and they contrive to host a dinner in his honor. Hoping that a big night based around a celebrity like Prima will get them publicity, the brothers pool all their talent, energy and every cent they have to plan a sumptuous banquetof unsurpassed ambition. What follows is a culinary adventure that will teach them alot about themselves, each other and their different definitions of life, love and success.

Hmm.. a long time has passed since I last did this, but I'll give it my best. The movie is good, even if your not a cuisine or an Italian fan you'd like it. It has that little something in it that makes it good. I found it for myself and everybody else will probably also. I'm kinda drawing a blank what to write, because the synopsis is long enough and tells the entire storyline. What I'll say about the ending, without giving it away, is that it's great. A 5 minute, uncut frame. Can it get any better? Oh yes it can. It took the whole movie in to this one scene and it was just perfect. I'd shed a tear, if I could cry. The story it self will keep you interested through out the progress. It's interesting, fun and compelling. Final Verdict?? Yeah, watch it, it's a tasting experience that will last in your mouth. (I just had to say something stupid like that)

Carrie (1976)

Directed by: Brian DePalma
Starring: Sissy Spacek, Piper Laurie, Amy Irving, William Katt, Nancy Allen, John Travolta

Synopsis: A young teenage girl wreaks telekinetic vengeance on her high school tormentors and religious-nut mother.

Carrie aka from zero to pissed off in 2.5 seconds. Starts off a little weird, but it's okay I guess, because there are a lot off things that at some point don't make sense. For instance the ending itself, it's like, wait what? Story itself, I'm feeling it, I really am. It's great. Highschoolers, supernatural, your freaky religious mother who is a complete psycho and the senior prom. Oh yes, the prom. The infamous senior prom from Carrie. It truly is what makes this movie so great. (I wont spoil it if you don't what happens) And then your psycho mom. Having your first periods is a bad thing? Oh damn. My (girl)friend asked me where do these people come from. My answer: from the church. One last detail, the clothing is so retro that you will question Travoltas haircut and the girls gym pants. Final verdict?? A classical horror flick from the seventies, rock it!

Snatch (2000)

Directed by: Guy Richie
Starring: Jason Statham, Brad Pitt, Vinnie Jones, Jason Flemyng, Dennis Farina

Synopsis: Snatch poses a very important question: Where is the stone? This is a caper about a diamond heist gone helter-skelter, the rough-and-tumble world of bare- knuckle boxing, an unpredictable Irish gypsy and a dog. Double-crossing, double-bluffing and double-dealing abound as various parties pursue personal agendas-all of them illegal, some of them farcical and most of them involving an 86-carat diamond. As plans go haywire and tempers fray, dogs, diamonds, mobile homes, boxers and assorted weaponry get swept up into a chaotic free-for-all. The question is - who will emerge with the stone?

Wait what??? These words will cross your minds during this film. Not only once, twice but atleast 5 times?? Well, case being. It gets a bit fonfusing at somepoint, but then they clear it all out and then it's cool again. The problem itself begins when all the characters come in motion. You wont remember them all, but slowly when they start dying, it's cool again. So.. what else? Starts with a nice little heist. Yews robbing the yewelry, cool. The the lid blows. One thing I enjoyed the most was, that you could never predict what happens next. I just love unpredictable movies. The ending itself is the best. And the cherry on top? It has a storyteller, yummy. Final verdict?? Thumbs up for Pitts great acting.

X-Men Origins - Wolverine

X-Men Origins - Wolverine (2009)

Directed by: Gavin Hood
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Liev Schreiber, Danny Huston, Lynn Collins:

Synopsis: Wolverine lives a mutant life, seeks revenge against Victor Creed (who will later become Sabertooth) for the death of his girlfriend, and ultimately ends up going through the mutant Weapon X program.

Woohoo, the best X-Men movie in my opinion. Better then the first three, even though I enjoyed them also. Why I love this so much is because Wolverine is my second favourite superhero, after Batman of course. And Hugh Jackman, come on, you have to love that guy. So, let's talk about the movie, enough fanboy talk. Nice little introduction, shows - how, why and when. Story goes on nicely, you'll see betrayal, awesome fighting and stuff liek that. Lovely visuals. Only thing I didn't like was the ending. Everything was over, the only thing left to do was to erase his memory and the way they did it.. So f***ing lame, seriously. I wont give it away though. No hard feelings. Final Verdict?? Doesn't matter if you've seen the first three. Watch it.

Catch Me If You Can

Catch Me If You Can (2002)

Directed by: Steven Spielberg
Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Christopher Walkin, Martin Sheen

Synopsis: Based on a true story, Frank W. Abagnale was employed as a doctor, a lawyer, and as a co-pilot for a major airline company-all before reaching his 21st birthday. A successful con artist and master of deception, Frank is also a brilliant forger, whose skill at check fraud has netted him millions of dollars in stolen funds--much to the chagrin of the authorities. FBI Agent Carl Hanratty has made it his prime mission to capture him and bring him to justice, however Frank is always one step ahead of Carl, baiting him to continue the chase.

A few posts back I stated that Mr. Ripley resembles Catch me, but now, when I've watched them both thoroughly and the statement is.... (suspensful drum music) NO, no f***ing way. Ripley was serious and dark, while Catch Me was playful and fun. DiCaprio and Hanks both do their parts well. So... It starts with 2-3 openings, in my opinion. Then the story developes nicely and it's really entertaining. The ending was a 50/50 gamble. It seems that it ends, but then it goes on for atleast 10 minutes. What's up with that? So it finishes in a completely different direction then intended. Needed a happy Hollywood ending. A small letdown. Final Verdict?? Yeah! Nothing else needed!

Pitch Black

Pitch Black (2000)

Directed by: David Twohy
Starring: Vin Diesel, Radha Mitchell, Cole Hauser, Keith david

Synopsis: In the not-too-distant future, a docking pilot makes a forced crash-landing of her spacecraft on a distant planet. Her crew is killed, even as some of the passengers escape. A lawman is unharmed but so is his prisoner, a convicted murderer. As the survivors explore the uncomfortably hot planet, they must band together. The planet is eerie, arid, and lifeless. but as the sun sets and the planet plunges into total darkness, other inhabitants emerge.

Taadaa.. The first movie from the Chronicles Of Riddick. And if I remember correctly, the better one? I don't remember, I will do a review on it, in the next few days. So, let's begin. It starts off pretty okay I guess. Two bad accidents and s***, your in trouble. Flying f***ers on your tail. Riddick does his thing and they all get saved, almost. About the ending, well.. It's kinda predictable, but not so much also. I'm not sure if the director also knew how to end it. I don't know. It's yours to decide. There's not so much to say about this movie. Great special effects, nice scenery and yeah, Diesel was good too, not much talking, but that suits him, makes him look smarter. Final Verdict??? Not sure if should.. But when it's on TV, then why the hell not.
What do you put in your car? Diesel! :D
The Chronicles Of Riddick (2004) is coming soon.

300 (2007)

Directed by: Zack Snyder
Starring: Gerard Butler, Lena Headey, Dominic West, David Wenham

Synopsis: In the midst of the Persian-Greco war, Spartan King Leonidas leads his army of 300 soldiers into battle against the invading Persian army during the Battle of Thermopylae. According to legend, their valor and sacrifice inspired all of Greece to unite against the Persian foe, leading to the origins of democracy.

This is madness!

Oh yeah, I'm going to talk about the epicness of 300. Starts with a introduction to tell the story of Leonidas. One of my fav things in movies, a storyteller. Then it's smooth sailing. Story goes on with wicked action scenes, slomotion fight sequences, witty and humorous one-liners. It's easy and overhelming. I also love the old-school visuals. It really suits the olden times. The downside might only be the gayness of the Spartan mens clothes. And the weirdness of Xerxes and his legions piercings, leather fetish and other misfigures. It really makes you wonder if 3000 years ago they all were so gay. Final verdict?? Yeah, sure, see it if you allready haven't. You'll also understand 300 jokes. (see what I did there)(lame).

Good Will Hunting

Good Will Hunting (1997)

Directed by: Gus Van Sant
Starring: Matt Damon, Robin Williams, Ben Affleck, Minnie Driver

Synopsis: Will Hunting, a janitor at MIT, has a gift for mathematics which is discovered, and a psychologist tries to help him with his gift and the rest of his life.

An allstar cast with a script written by Affleck and Damon. You'd expect wonders, right? Well your spot on. This is an incredible story, which is perfectly acted out by Damon. He's becoming my favourite actor, film by film. Maybe at first it may be familiar to "A Beautiful Mind" because it's a story about a troubled genius, but it's nowhere near it. I'm not sure what to say about it. I don't want to spoil or ruin anything... Well, it has great dialogues, that will blow your mind. Great laughs, I literally "Stop, Drop and Rofl!" Final verdict?? Just see this f***ing film. God....


Twilight (2008)

Directed by: Catherine Hardwicke
Starring: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Billy Burke, Peter Facinelli

Synopsis: A teenage girl risks everything when she falls in love with a vampire.

Why the f*** not... I know I'm digging my own grave by reviewing this, but yeah, why not. I have to say that I like this movie actually or atleast I like the story. (Don't tell me to read the book, beacause I don't have the time for that) Also, Kirsten Stewart looks hot. You have to admit that, she looks good. And Pattinson? Well.. he doesn't have to do anything. (and he pretty much doesn't) I'm not really sure what else to say about it. Watch the first movie (the other ones (new moon and eclipse) they s*** b***s) or read the books (they were supposed to be good). Final Verdict?? It's good for a romance movie, but if you want vampires, then your way-way off.

A Fish Called Wanda

A Fish Called Wanda (1988)

Directed by: John Cleese, Charles Chrichton
Starring: John Cleese, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Kline, Michael Palin

Synopsis: In London, four very different people team upto commit armed robbery, then try to doublecross each other for the loot.

Dude, I'm so tired. It's not healthy to sleep about 15 hours in 5 days and then stay up late and watch a movie. So, let's get down to business. It starts off with a little chat, you see the people and then they commit the robbery. Then the entire movie they do idiotic/smart things. That's the best way to summit up i guess. To be honest, I didn't find this movie that funny. Yes, I liked Kline (got an oscar for this roll) but at the same time, it was kinda dumb. The ending is okay, I guess. Had a little fun and it ended good for the lovable characters and not so well for everybody else? The Prime Minister in South America, not so bad really. Final verdict?? I think that I liked the movie, but I'm not quite sure. Should you see it? Why not.

A Serbian Film (Srpski film)

A Serbian Film (Srpski film) (2010)

Directed by: Srdjan Spasojevic
Starring: Srdjan Todorovic, Sergej Trifunovic, Jelena Gavrilovic, Katarina Zutic

Synopsis: Milos is a former porn star who is down on his luck financially. When he receives a call from his long-time movie actress partner, Layla, he welcomes her call. Apparently she's heard that a new film director wants to hire Milos to star in his "artistically-designed" porn film for a very generous price. He is easily lured form his semi-retirement by the lucrative offer, agreeing to meet the director in an isolated mansion. As the filming progresses, Milo begins to suspect that the director's intentions may be darker than mere pornography. As the film begins to devolve into a horrifically violent production, Milos finds escape may not be an option.

Holy F***ing s***!! I don't know what to say. I can't even tell if I liked this movie or not. I'll try to tell you about it, but not so roughly. So, it starts with a introduction of some sort, telling who's who and what's what. When the story progresses you will start to feel uneasy. For the faint hearted, this is about time for you to stop watching. It gets a bit obscene even for me and that is deffinitely something. If the middle part doesn't freak you out, then I guarantee that the ending will. It's just so f***ed up in so many ways. What makes it even more disdurbing is that they show full nudity (kinda OK with the hot females in the movie) and hardcore gore. And when I mean hardcore, then I mean really hardcore s***. Final Verdict?? A decent movie I guess. WATCH IT, IF YOU DARE!!!

The Bourne Ultimatum

The Bourne Ultimatum (2008)

Directed by: Paul Greengrass
Starring: Matt Damon, Julia Stiles, David Strathairn, Scott Glenn

Synopsis: All he wanted was to disappear. Instead, Jason Bourne is now hunted by the people who made him what he is. Having lost his memory and the one person he loved, he is undeterred by the barrage of bullets and a new generation of highly-trained killers. Bourne has only one objective: to go back to the beginning and find out who he was. Now, in the new chapter of this espionage series, Bourne will hunt down his past in order to find a future. He must travel from Moscow, Paris and London to Tangier and New York City as he continues his quest to find the real Jason Bourne—all the while trying to outmaneuver the scores of cops, federal officers and Interpol agents with him in their crosshairs.

WoW, a shorter synopsis. Where to start.. My midn is completly blank, literally. The story is so fucking great. The way they pieced togehter the second and third, is beyond genius level, immortal maybe. All questions will be answered. All bits and pieces fall in place. I'd have to take my statements back, because all three movies were needed, to but together such a masterpiece. Compared to the first movies, this one has a lot more action going on for it. But at the same time they don't forget about the storyline itself. Fighting, action and all those running and escaping scenes, amazing. He's like fucking Houdini, catch me if you can. There's just so many good things to say about this movie and the entire trilogy. The screenwriter had to be high or something to come up with this idea. Enough babbling. Final Verdict?? WATCH THE ENTIRE TRILOGY!! and that's it!

The Bourne Supremacy

The Bourne Supremacy (2004)

Directed by: Paul Greengrass
Starring: Matt Damon, Franka Potente, brian Cox, Julia Stiles

Synopsis: Two years ago, Jason Bourne thought he had walked away from his past. But now, his past is about to return. Bourne and Marie have maintained their anonymous, underground existence at the cost of permanence. Fueled by splintered nightmares and haunted by the past he cannot remember, Bourne moves Marie from city to city, trying to remain one step ahead of the threat implicit in every unexplained stranger's glance, every "wrong number" phone call -- that at any second, without any warning, he might get pulled back into the world he hopes he left behind. When an operative appears in the sleepy village that has been their latest home, Bourne and Marie collapse their lives and head out. His past at the door, their only chance now is to run. But once a line is crossed and the stakes in a new global game of cat-and-mouse are raised, the Jason Bourne created by Treadstone -- the covert, now dismantled operation that spawned cold-blooded, professional assassins -- returns. Two years ago, Bourne walked away from the deadly world that created him with a promise of retaliation should anyone attempt contact. Now that that world has indeed come calling, Bourne intends to keep his word. They should have left him alone.

Another rather long synopsis. Hmm.. where to start off?? In the beginning, I was relly hoping for that it won't end up being a revenge story. It kinda did, but it kinda didn't. And that's what makes this movie worth to watch. The first half - more talkative then the first movie and less action. The second half - almost all action, but with important plot twists and takes. I stated that they weren't planning on making a sequal and guess what?? I was right. Well obvious was that it was directed by a different person, but I kinda missed that at first. The thing that gave it away for me was that the first movie ended perfectly, with no questions rised. And the second movie made new questions, on top of the first ones. Like a building of some sorts. What I'm trying to say is that, the story is great again and I'd sails rather smoothly. New problem and a new way to solve it you might say. Ends kinda happy like the first, so we will see what happens in the highly anticipated third movie that got really high ratings and is renounced on of the best movies. Final Verdict?? You wathced the first and enjoyed it. Then you will deffinitely enjoy this. You watched the first and dind't like it. Then you might like or hate the second. Watch 'em to understand. ;)

The Bourne Identity

The Bourne Identity (2002)

Directed by: Doug Liman
Starring: Matt Damon, Franka Potente, Clive Owen, Chris Cooper

Synopsis: The spy thriller opens as an amnesiac is rescued at sea by the crew of an Italian fishing boat. Nearly dead, he carries nothing but the bullets in his back and the bank account number embedded in his hip. Although completely without identity or background, he possesses an array of extraordinary talents in fighting, linguistics and self-defense that speaks of a dangerous past. In the present he is disoriented and wary as he is propelled into an urgent search to discover who he is and why his life has taken a perilous turn. A Zurich safe deposit box yields an assortment of passports, a hefty load of cash, an automatic weapon and a name--Jason Bourne--with a Paris address. What it means remains a mystery, but Bourne quickly realizes that although he knows no one, there are people who recognize him--and do not wish him well. When he meets Marie Kreutz, a hard-luck German-born wanderer, he makes a desperate pitch--$10,000 for a ride to Paris. Despite her reservations, Marie takes the cash and begins a journey with Bourne that changes her life forever. The trail of Jason Bourne's past snakes from Europe to CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, where Treadstone, a clandestine operation is based. As Bourne and Marie struggle to stay below the radar in France, all of the stealthy muscle of Treadstone is focused on tracking them and neutralizing Bourne as quickly and efficiently as possible.

A rather long and thorough synopsis this time. Why not, less for me to right I guess. So, this is the first movie, from the Bourne trilogy. (I will do the other two also as fast as possible) Where to start? I've seen it a couple of times bout now and it still amuses me. It has good action and fighting scenes, the plot is good and story it self delevopes pretty nicely. The ending is this usual good ending, beacuase I don't think, they were going to make two sequals. They wraped it up pretty nicely. I adored the music, it was perfect and enjoyable. Final Verdict?? Sure, watch it. James Bond in amnesia a bit, but rather entertaining.

Reservoir Dogs

Reservoir Dogs (1992)

Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
Starring: Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Steve Buscemi, Michael Madsen, Chris Penn, Lawrence Tierney

Synopsis: Six unacquainted professional criminals are brought together by a veteran thief to execute an intricately planned diamond robbery.

My first Tarantino review. I'm excited, like a little kid on Xmas eve. I'd start with the first movie, the one that made him a star. Mr. Blone, Mr. Pink, Mr. White, Mr. Orange, Mr. Blue and Mr. Brown. They were supposed to be the team to the perect hiest, but things got complicated. The movie starts with a nice little breakfast scene, where you get acquaintanced with all the main characters. They are in a series of kinda absurd discussions. That being one of the best things. Those talks, those phrases, those little chats are what makes it so damn brilliant. About the ending, well... You'll get the (non)usual Tarantino ending, what will always blow your mind, like theirs. One of the best movies of all time and it's also my favourite director. Double the fun. Final Verdict?? If you haven't seen it already, then that's your problem. Everybody else - good job you guys, I love you!

Sorry if some parts were a bit hard to understand, but it's 8 am; I'm tired as fuck and it's my favourite director. You got to give a guy a little credit.

Batman: Under The Red Hood

Batman: Under The Red Hood (2010)

Directed by: Brandon Vietti
Starring: Bruce Greenwood, Jensen Ackles, Neil Patrick Harris, John Dimaggio

Synopsis: While the is crime running free in Gotham and Batman trying to stop it all a new challenger appears. Named the Red Hood.

So I'll start off by stating two things. First: this is the first time I wrote the synopsis, beacause I usually take it from RT. Second: this is an animation, period. Now.. Where to start? It's nothing like the usual cartoons you see or Japanese style animations. It's a lot deeper and more sophisticated. It starts off with a pretty deep introduction. When the story goes on, it gets better and better. The mysterys reveal and everything becomes clear. Even if you aren't a hardcore Batman fan, you'll understand almost everything, because they nicely explain it along the ride. I don't know what else to say, I really had great movie experience watching this. Final verdict?? So will you!!


Se7en (1995)

Directed by: David Fincher
Starring: Morgan Freeman, Brad pitt, Kevin Spacey, Gwyneth Paltrow, R. Lee Ermey, Richard Roundtree

Synopsis: Police drama about two cops, one new and one about to retire, tracking a serial killer using the seven deadly sins as his motive.

Oh damn.. Did a double tap on se7en and I still fucking loved it. Loved it a lot. With an allstar cast like this, there's only two changes - hit or miss. And what a hit this is. It will hit you in the gut and it wont stop there. The story smoothly sales to the ending, but you'll probably never figure out how's it really going to end. A complete shit shocker. The acting, it's also fantastic. Another great thing. There's just so many things I love in it. A bit gory for some maybe, the only set back for people with bad digesting. Sorry, but it is needed in a movie like this. Final Verdict?? BUY THE GODDAMN DVD or blue-ray!


Eurotrip (2004)

Directed by: Jeff Schaffer, Alec Berg
Starring: Scott Mechlowicz, Jacob Pitts, Michelle Trachtenberg, Travis Wester

Synopsis: Dumped by his girlfriend, a high school grad decides to embark on an overseas adventure in Europe with his friends.

A movie all have seen and I can honestly say I've seen it atleast 7 times and this is going to be the 8, because it's also on TV. So what to say about it? It's a idiotic teen comedy and that's why you will love it. Stupid jokes, stupid trips, good young actors acting stupid, everythings so stupid and that's so-so-so perfect. Scotty doesn't know song by Lustra, that's one of THE BEST!! Also one of my top10 movies. Final verdict?? If you haven't seen it then quickly, do it.

Meet The Parents

Meet The Parents (2000)

Directed by: Jay Roach
Starring: Rober De Niro, Ben Stiller, Blythe Danner, James Rebhorn

Synopsis: Male nurse Greg Focker meets his girlfriend's parents before proposing, but her suspicious father is every date's worst nightmare.

A great comedy. One of the best. I've actually seen it before, but I kinda double checked since it came from TV. What differes it from the other tip comedies? You can relate to it. It has those familiar moments. Also it's a tear yerker. You got to love it. I don't know what else to say. You have to see it yourself to understand it. Final Verdict?? See it and you will enjoy it. Short but firm.

8 am and still haven't slept, I'm on fire....

21 (2008)

Directed by: Robert Luketic
Starring: Jim Sturgess, Kevin Spacey, Kate Bosworth, Aaron Yoo, Liza Lapira, Jacob Pitts, Laurence Fishburne

Synopsis: Ben Campbell is a shy, brilliant M.I.T. student who--needing to pay school tuition--finds the answers in the cards. He is recruited to join a group of the school's most gifted students that heads to Vegas every weekend armed with fake identities and the know-how to turn the odds at blackjack in their favor. With unorthodox math professor and stats genius Micky Rosa leading the way, they've cracked the code. By counting cards and employing an intricate system of signals, the team can beat the casinos big time. Seduced by the money, the Vegas lifestyle, and by his smart and sexy teammate, Jill Taylor, Ben begins to push the limits. Though counting cards isn't illegal, the stakes are high, and the challenge becomes not only keeping the numbers straight, but staying one step ahead of the casinos' menacing enforcer: Cole Williams.

So, what do you expect from a movie, what is called the most famous card game? It's obvious, right? Starts off with a nice little introduction and then starts off. A bit traditional, at some parts. Guy falls in love with a girl, does things out of the ordinary, gets in trouble, finds a way out of it, disses his friends and so on... The usual. The way they it finished is great. Something that I didn't expect, but the ending scenes are still traditional. Be being a gamble sort of I love the idea of 21 and card counting and the traditional part.. neeh.. why not! I will state that I like this movie, but.. for others to watch.. go for it, but don't expect TOOO much. Final Verdict?? You'll watch it once and that's about it.

The Talented Mr. Ripley

Another late strike for me, it's 5:20 am, not much..

The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)

Directed by: Anthony Minghella
Starring: Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Cate Blanchett

Synopsis: To be young and carefree amid the blue waters and idyllic landscape of sun-drenched Italy in the late 1950s; that's la dolce vita Tom Ripley craves - and Dickie Greenleaf leads. When Dickie's father, a wealthy ship builder, asks Tom to bring his errant playboy son back home to America, Dickie and his beautiful expatriate girlfriend, Marge Sherwood, never suspect the dangerous extremes to which Ripley will go to make their lifestyle his own. After all, it's better to be a fake somebody than a real nobody.

Oh my fucking god. That was awesome. I really loved it. At first it might be like "Catch Me If You Can" but it's deffinitely not. It's better in my opinion. It slowly developes into a real thriller. The suspense at some parts was literally killing me. Constantly thinking what's going to happen next and at most parts, I couldn't figure it out. Who is he now, what is he going to do next, will he get busted?? Those questions ran through my mind like Formula F1 car. And the ending.. It blew my mind away. Final Verdict?? Another must see. Perfect acting from Matt Damon makes it even greater of an experience.

Natural Born Killers

Natural Born Killers (1994)

Directed by: Oliver Stone
Starring: Woody Harrelson, Juliette Lewis, Robert Downey Jr., Tommy Lee Jones, Tom Sizemore

Synopsis: A shockingly amoral couple travel around the country committing murders and become media darlings.

At first glance, it may look like Bonny and Clyde. Loving couple driving around and killing people, but it's not, it's a lot better. Case being. If you have the script ritten by Tarantino and then directed by Stone, it's bound to be epic. I'll start off with the visuals. It's just great. The editing and the special effects will blow your mind. The superb cast also does a good job. And the story itself then? It's also great. Bloody, fast paced, interesting, makes you wonder.. There just isn't enough words to express myself. You'd have to see it, to understand it. The meaning?? Watch it, because I don't want to spoil it. Final Verdict?? Watch, you deffinetly should see this movie. Unless you don't like other Tarantions work.

The Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club (1985)

Directed by: John Hughes
Starring: Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Anthony MIchael Hall, Ally Sheedy, Paul Gleason

A diverse group of high schoolers forced to spend detention on a Saturday in the library. Forced to make the best of their circumstances, they learn to understandeach other and discover that in spite of their initial differences, they actuallyshare many common feelings and problems.

Hmm... It makes me scratch my head, because I don't know where to start. This movies is fucking awesome. I mean searously. One of my top movies for sure. Five kids coming to a detention on a Saturday. Everybody are from a different group. It starts off like a teen comedy, but it develops. In the end it's more serious business. They talk about why they are and what's wrong with their life. The last words in the movie are golden. Final Verdict?? A must see. It makes my top10 list in fear ease and that's said something.

Mad Max

So.. it's currently 4:30 Am in the morning and I just finished with Mad Max.

Mad Max. (1979)

Directed by: George Miller
Starring: Mel Gibson, Joanne Samuel, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Steve Bisley

Synopsis: In a dystopic future Australia, a vicious biker gang murder a cop's family and make his fight with them personal.

So where to start off.. It was like, at first they couldn't get it going, but in the end, they couldn't get it to stop, maybe?? Well, at first glance i didn't think much about it. Some points were hard to understand, bla bla bla. Then when the wife met with the biker gang, it got interesting. I was hoping that it wont end up like a tratidional story. Cops family gets killed, cop gets pissed, cop kills bad guys, the end. It kinda goes there, but in the same time not really. The ending was great. And talk about car chases. That was just awesome. The
choreography was breath talking. What is also noticable, is that it was Mel Gibsons first roll and it was a hit. He didn't say much, but it was enough. Also rather refreshing to see a young Gibson. Mmmm.... Final Verdict? A must watch i guess. It's Also in 1001 movies and all, but yeah. If I'm going to watch it again sometimes, then I'm gona skip about the first 30 minutes.. But just maybe. WATCH IT!!!!

Iron Man 2!! (2010)

Directed by: Jon Favreau
Starring: Robert Downey Jr, Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson

Synopsis: Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the highly anticipated sequel to the blockbuster film based on the legendary Marvel Super Hero “Iron Man,” reuniting director Jon Favreau and Oscar nominee Robert Downey Jr. In “Iron Man 2,” the world is aware that billionaire inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is the armored Super Hero Iron Man. Under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military, Tony is unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information will slip into the wrong hands. With Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at his side, Tony forges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces.

Great-great-great. So I just saw that movie in the cinema and I still like. It had great action scenes, awesomely directed choreography and nice special effects. The story itself was also good, but the character IVAN didn't get enough screen time, like in the end he was taken out way too easily, I was hoping for a great 1on1 fight, while iron hide is trouble or something. Also you will get a treat, cuz Samuel L. Jackson also appears in the movie, as a bad ass Secret Agent. In all that action, you also get a few laughs in between. Fina verdict?? Watch it, even when you Haven't seen the first, but.. the first was a bit better. Main reason?? The story itself was a bit better.
Kick Ass (2010)

Directed by: Matthew Vaughn
Starring: Aaron Johnson, Nicolas Cage, Chloe Mortez, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Mark Strong
Synopsis: Mark Millar's violent comic tale of wannabe superheroes is adapted by writer-director Matthew Vaughn with this Marv Films production. Aaron Johnson stars as a teen who steps out of his house one day with a mask and a painted baseball bat and starts to fight crime even though he has no superpowers. Lyndsy Fonseca co-stars as the character's object of desire, with Nicolas Cage also appearing as an ex-cop whose hatred of a drug lord forces him to train his daughter to be a lethal vigilante.

Sounds cool? Well it is. For at least most people. It has a lot of violence, gore and blood, that's why a lot of people don't like it. It's a comic book adaption what do you expect??? Daisies
and little puppies? despite the violence and the little girl killing grown men with katanas and under weapons this movie is cool. It has this little crazy humor that I enjoy (sadly most people don't get it) cool fighting/shooting scene's and that Japanese music when she kills them. It's magical. It almost makes you feel that you can also be a super hero. Nice performance from Cage also, the usual, a little sloppy but still good. I recommend you watch it, unless your fainthearted or your a pussy. what else can you want from a movie?
