Eating Out review

Posted : 6 years, 10 months ago on 31 August 2011 12:38 (A review of Eating Out)

One of the ‘gay movies’ more outrageously bad that I’ve ever seen, along with a worser screen play and management than teen novels, however the situations encasing homosexuals who do sex with heterosexuals are, at least, temptress. Shame that the movie is a mere trend.

Mother's Day (2010) review

Posted : 6 years, 10 months ago on 31 August 2011 12:38 (A review of Mother's Day (2010))

Surprising movie in a good way. A story really well elaborated and more, still well executed. Performances from all the cast really good but definitely the stronger is Rebecca de Mornay'. Always with the same nuts face along with a excellent performance. Rebecca's performance was crazily good, she mixed the sadistic with calmness in a excellent form. One thing I liked, beside the characters aren't mentions for intelligence, they weren't the typical dumb teenagers, were adult people afraid and acting on under pressure and control. I found that really nice. It left the movie with a serious tone. Another thing, it has no jokes at crucial moments, it was taken very seriously, it also counted a lot. If you like violent thrillers, plus plenty of blood and tension, this will appeal you in full. A pity that it hasn't gone to the cinema, certainly deserved a chance.

Kick-Ass review

Posted : 6 years, 10 months ago on 31 August 2011 12:37 (A review of Kick-Ass)

Kick-Ass is, for sure, a fine homage to super heroes. Besides entering on a cliche universe, however peculiar, from the characters (special abilities, graphic violence, good humor, and really versus evilness), the film brings a curious narrative which accosts the contrast between existentialism and the consequences of being a 'demigod'. The production, inspired in the graphic novel by John Romita Jr. and Mark Millar, is really well directed by the Britain and the debutant Matthew Vaughn. Apart from the cool balconies of metalanguage and creativity in conducting cameras, Vaughn brings a clever script that prints a breathtaking pace balancing drama, action (with inventive scenes and quality) and comedy in good measure. Telling more details about the heroes in "Kick-Ass" would be such a immorality. The amazing true story about the 'alter egos' work as well as the stories of famous 'vigilantes' on crime. Kick it Hit-Girl!

Super review

Posted : 6 years, 10 months ago on 31 August 2011 12:37 (A review of Super)

The movie's aesthetic is interesting; it starts a comedy apparently pretentious and slapstick, however the screenplay goes pushing on you and the movie keeps creating a way that you don't except, ending like a convincing drama. Right before the end I though "damn the guy kinda screwed all up, lost his team girl and all that only to save the woman who was despising him" but the end was really persuasive. Cool, the script much goes right so as much as it fails, but there are moments which are good, like the surreal divine messages, the heroic Christians episodes, nevertheless the violence really visceral. The initial comparisons with Kick-Ass are inevitable, but there is something more human and believable, the end just proves it.

Cherrybomb (2009) review

Posted : 6 years, 10 months ago on 31 August 2011 12:36 (A review of Cherrybomb (2009))

The movie's proposal even is kinda interesting, however bad developed due to a weak screenplay and a production really confined; the soundtrack and the photography seem to be the only elements that suited really well; the visual resources, like it has been said, it's also interesting, thus as for some dialogues - which in its majority, those said by the character of Robert Sheehan, but everything visibly poorly explored. The cast, probably the last element that could bolster the movie, it's very lifeless. Robert Sheehan was the only one who had a spare performance, because his character was the only one that could have a little more development in the story, which no doubt gave greater basement to his performance, Rupert's one isn't bad, but with a character so shallow there wasn't much he could do.

Tamara review

Posted : 6 years, 10 months ago on 31 August 2011 12:36 (A review of Tamara)

Well, what shall I say? It's a really cliche movie and some scenes make me remember about Carrie, others remember I Know What U Did Last Summer and anothers. The cast isn't big deal, but in my opinion, they don't give much to desire. The script doesn't deepen as much as it should have been and the dialogue isn't much interesting. It's light-year far away from being a median movie. Only for fun, though.

127 Hours review

Posted : 6 years, 10 months ago on 31 August 2011 12:35 (A review of 127 Hours)

Everything in the film is well balanced and executed in a safe and clean way. The steering is responsive and always creative by Danny Boyle, the interpretation of James Franco is amazing and charismatic, the editing and screenplay by Jon Harris Boyle and Simon Beaufoy are perfectly consistent with the proposal: transmit agony, despair, emotion besides playing the spectator ‘in the hole’ Allied to a ‘single place’, the psychological factor is worked so bewildering and aflitante that the viewer seems to be beside toward the protagonist suffering along with it. What makes the ambient going even more agonizing is the fact that we feel weakened by wanting to help him and can not, of wanting to scream for help and to not leave his voice. The climax and the soundtrack of ‘happy ending’ in the outcome are creepy and extremely exciting. The relief of suffering and recovery of the breath at the end leave the viewer entranced with the movie by Danny Boyle, once again, makes a magnificent job.

A Perfect Getaway (2009) review

Posted : 6 years, 10 months ago on 31 August 2011 12:35 (A review of A Perfect Getaway (2009))

Good suspense is the one where everything is shown to the viewer and only in the end he will understand how all these pieces fit together. Already fake suspense like this, cheat, and omits important scenes dialogues plant inaccurate and false. So much so that in its outcome, the director David Twohy had to do just a short cut to explain where the killers came from, and only then, showed cut scenes to circumvent the reasoning of the public. It’s called incompetence of foul play or screenplay. It’s a shame because the production is very well crafted, there is sure to achieve success in the surge, and the end can be considered as the propaganda film, electrifying. Still, the script slips again with a strange outcome where certain character totally changes his mind for no apparent reason, or rather convincing. A Perfect Getaway meets all the technical issues that may have the best productions - including some of the most beautiful landscapes - but fails miserably to develop a coherent story and sincere to its audience.

Bridesmaids review

Posted : 6 years, 10 months ago on 31 August 2011 12:34 (A review of Bridesmaids)

I even found the movie funny in some scenes, like the one of the dressing-room, which was hilarious. But I still don’t know, I haven’t found that great. Some jokes took much time and some others are too forced. It’s not a movie that I plan to watch it again. It’s far to be bad, however it’s not that great as great people say.

Wanted review

Posted : 6 years, 10 months ago on 31 August 2011 12:34 (A review of Wanted)

Really interesting this film! On the contrary of the critics that I read a lot the movie is pure creative and different because shows the exaggerated and the impossible on a completely acceptable context! If people merely want to see possible and commons things just read the newspaper and not a movie. A movie needs to be creative and it can also be surreal, since the events fit and have a connected end. Bullets that make curves, bullets with goodbye, cars jumping over others! Two of the functions of the cinema from action are entertaining and make magic, do not forget that.
