Blood Ties Review

Yeay! Second post of the day! Well this time it is a review of a movie I’ve seen yesterday. Read the story line here (IMDB)

I give this movie a 4.8 out of a 5. It was that great. Just the feeling of the movie. It was great. It kept my attention the entire time. Although it is a action movie, it has a great story behind it. Clive Owen plays the bad guy so good. Like the role is written for him. His ‘brother’ also played well, because he really annoyed me by being who he was! I just loved the fact that it has this family, split in two who comes together and again go their own ways. It may seem a little bit like nonsense. But I can just explain why I like this family aspect of this film. It is just so realistic with really realistic dialogs. that’s just the word for this movie: Realistic. Not too much drama, enough action and all in a realistic modern world… (Even though the movie decor plays in the ’70)

If you have ever seen this movie… Tell me what you think!

Review The Conjour

 

It begins with this family. They moved into an old house at the countryside. The house itself gives a odd feeling. When some strange things happened in the house they call in the help of a couple who helps people with ghosts. They collect the items that are possessed and take them into their little collection.

The house of this family is dangerous and all kinds of strange things happen.  Will they ever be free of these ghosts?

I think it is a good movie, nothing special though. The storyline was okay and so were the effects that made it real spooky and shit. But it was taking too long and some things weren’t right.

*SPOILER ALERT DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!!!!*

For instance when at the end the child is in the car crying her eyes out. Something pulls her out this car and /BAM/ she’s gone. But later when everyone is fine the child returns… so what the f*ck happened to this girl!!

*END OF SPOILER ALERT*

I would recommend this movie if you like a nice evening but don’t expect a really spooky evening. A nice fact of this story is that it actually happened according to the two ghost hunters. This case was their worst case ever!

Review 2 Guns

Little spoiler alert…. Not a real big deal though.

I didn’t expect that this movie would be that good. I thought it would just be another over manly film with a lot of explosions and stupid word jokes.  But it was really entertaining and it never bored me.

The movie is about two men who got together to rob a bank. One of them is a cop (Denzel Washington) the other is in the navy (Matt Damon). They neither know that they are undercover agents. Together they rob a bank as the cop wants to infiltrate a drug cartel. This all goes wrong as they have to get the money back. I don’t want to reveal too much of the movie. I just recommend you just watch the trailer and then watch the movie.

The acting was really good. I liked the acting between Denzel and Matt. It makes it all more real but also very light to watch. There’s no complicated drama story to follow.

The story comes in easy and the plot goes just in a good rhythm. I never get bored because action gets combined with a good dose of comedy and a pinch of drama. They’ve created a good balance between everything.

As I said I hadn’t expected this movie to be that good. Everything just blended in nicely. I would recommend this to everyone who likes a good action movie and at the same time a decent (and believable) storyline.

I rate it 4.8 out of 5 stars

The Awesome Great Gatsby

Finally I got to see this movie. I’ve heard a lot about this movie but never got the change to see it.

It al begins with a man who lives right next to this mysterious Mr Gatsby. He was a writer but when Wall Street is having it’s best time he starts to study economics. His cousin lives right at the other side of the bay. On one day he gets invited to a party of this great Mr Gatsby. This party is awesome. The newest things are all there- big great swimming pool with nice ladies dancing around- Fireworks with a big bang. Everything is there.

When he meets Mr Gatsby he wants to ask him a favour. It’s a favour that makes al sense in the end.

I began really awkward. I didn’t know what the movie was about. I thought we would never meet Gatsby or never know something about him. But when you reach to the end it all makes more sense and it made me quiet curious.

The movie really, really made me more curious, something that not always work with me. Most of the time it annoys me when I don’t know where the movie is going. But this movie, I don’t know. It was just great. The end is what broke my heard… that’s all what I will say about it.

I would recommend this to everyone who likes this kind of life films. You see and hear what this person has been trough- his whole life is played in this movie.

 

I would rate it a 4 out of 5.

 

Review The frozen ground

I read the title and the reviews on the movie and was really interested in this movie. I think this movie began really great but the end disappointed me really. They say the movie was based on a true story and that the victims were real. They even showed the pictures trough the movie. What irritated me the most was the cliché storyline of the stupid prostitute who runs away every time she’s safe.

The movie is about the killer Robert Hansen who kills young girls. He kidnaps them and ties them up in his house. He is a well-respected man in the society and nobody suspects him. When he gets tired of a girl he takes her them in his airplane and flies to a place that no soul would ever go. There he’ll hunt them like animals.

When there are like 20 girls missing a team gets placed on this case. So is the state trooper Jack Halcombe who gets transferred to another job in a few weeks. He just hasn’t signed the papers yet. When a girl  (Venessa Hudgens) escapes from the killer the agent and his co-workers are standing for a difficult job to get this man behind the bars.

As I said it was based on a true story and in the beginning it really felt that way. But when we reach to the end of the movie the researches begins to bore me and the survivor irritates the crap out of me. Seriously she is like really… I don’t even know any words to explain the stupidity of this girl.

Okay… back to the movie. A good thing of the movie was the feeling in the beginning as if you were to take part in the investigation. If I had to rate this movie I probably gave it a 6 out of 10.

I have just another question for you all-

What is the best ‘based on a true story’ movie you have ever seen and why is that?

Review Now You See Me

It all starts with four magicians who are making money with their own way of the art of illusion.  They met as they all got en invitation and discover a show. In this show they steal money from a bank and share it with the audience. This becomes a world hit and everybody talks about this act.

At this point a policeman and a woman from Interpol are placed on this case. They try to get them but the magicians who call themselves ‘the four Horseman’ are always six steps ahead.

When I first heard about this movie I really thought it was just a lame movie. Nothing spectacular. I cannot say how wrong I was. It is a really good movie that makes you suspect everyone. It starts really fast and the plot is really heading forward. In the middle it gets somewhat slower. But that isn’t that bad I think.

I think the movie has a good story and the overall effects are impressive. I would defiantly recommend this movie to a friend.
