Different in a theme that is always the same

Posted : 8 years, 11 months ago on 4 February 2010 04:01 (A review of Invictus (2009))

I went to the movies just because it was a Clint Eastwood movie. I had just a basic idea of what the movie was about so most of the things I just realized when I was watching. Sports it is not a theme I enjoy when I watch movies.. but is not a sports movie. Is a movie about a nation and how people together can change something, how one man can change something. Considering most of those movies are long, boring and end up in a way you already know because is based on a true story it was very interesting to watch Clint direct a gender that don't have many fans putting a little bit of humor, different takes and interpretations. It did make a change, not only the movie but Clint itself, like he always does. Not his best but still worth watching.

It's the first movie I watch from the director and I was really surprised. Not only because he is the king of horror but for having such a very well made movie in general. What a beautiful photography, amazing actors and a plot that I was surprised and amused in the end. Is hard to find a movie that makes you have all different types of emotions.

Watching this movie made me interest even more for his career, the movies itself, and why everybody says how genius he is.

Harry Cane or Mateo Blanco?

Posted : 9 years ago on 21 January 2010 06:38 (A review of Broken Embraces)

One of the film Almodóvar movies that he concentrates more in the male character than the female one so it's already interesting. Harry Cane is a blind movie write that lives an ordinary life and one day decides to tell everything to his pupile Pedro about an event connected with the politician that died.

Reminding of some noir movies it is very different from most movies that I've seen from Almodóvar but still, really good. The movie in general is just "good" but still worth watching it.

You can't make everybody loves you, Poppy.

Posted : 9 years ago on 21 January 2010 06:30 (A review of Happy-Go-Lucky)

For the first hour with the except of the first ten minutes I got bored but eventually the movie got better. The character of Sallay Hawkins, Poppy, is a bubbly woman that see a lot of happiness in the world where most of the grow up don't understand anymore what makes her looks like an idiot. You get usted to her, to her personality and start loving her. Her relationship with Scott is the best part of the movie. With some scenes that I had no idea what they're all about I think there is a movie you have to watch a few times. There are a lot of wrong things going on but at the same times it continues to grow on you.

Already a miniclassic

Posted : 9 years ago on 16 January 2010 10:30 (A review of Shrek (2001))

Since it was realeased the movie became a childrens classic. Until this day I never had watched but now I can see why. All the characters have a lot of personalities, are so carismatic and the mix of fairy tale, with pop songs that until today everybody knows it with the good quotes are just hilarious. It's a different movie from when it was relasead and a great surprise. How can someone imagine an Oger could be so sweet?

It's a good idea, but..

Posted : 9 years ago on 12 January 2010 04:53 (A review of Choke)

The idea is good but is not that well executed. Sam Rockwell is a really talented actor and Kelly Macdonald is a great surprise but still, not as good as I tought it would be. In general the idea must be really good in a book.

Sherlock Holmes (2009) review

Posted : 9 years ago on 12 January 2010 04:11 (A review of Sherlock Holmes (2009))

Having Robert Downey Jr and Guy Ritchie at the same movie it's lalready a very interesting experience especially when they are telling a story like Sherlock Holmes that being honest is really far from what the director is usted to it. I imagine that or the movie would kick ass or would suck, but I am glad that in my opinion it was definitely the first option. Guy Ritchie gave a touch to the movie that probably any other director would do. Sure the plot has their mistakes, and some parts are tiring but in general the movie it's very good and the type of movie is worth watching at the theater. And as usual RDJ delivers another perfect performance just making sure he's one of the best actors these days.

I'm the dude who plays the dude.

Posted : 9 years ago on 8 January 2010 04:09 (A review of Tropic Thunder)

One of the funniest movies ever made. Ben Stiller surprises anyone who said he wasn't talented. A very interesting story, unique and hilarious.

I killed Cuba!

Posted : 9 years ago on 7 January 2010 04:17 (A review of How to Lose Friends & Alienate People (2008))

It's an obvious movie about some industry a lot of people already know that is full of fakeness, misteries and favours behind. Seeing this at screen it's good but different from "The Devil Wears Prada" where the whole cast enchantes you here the only good thing is Simon Pegg and how he can make a movie only by himself.

Emily, Summer or April?

Posted : 9 years ago on 6 January 2010 02:24 (A review of Definitely, Maybe (2008))

What a great romantic comedy and surprise. I watched because of the cast otherwives I wouldn't even try but the movie in general is amazing. It just flows, things happen and even that is a little bit predictable still surprises you in the end. This is the type of movie you can watch that it will make you feel good.
