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 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.

 

Movie Marathon night!

I’m holding a movie marathon! I’m really exited though. I only need to choose a theme for the evening. So I thought I’m going to make a list of 3 genres and give each genre 5 movies. So when I’m holding another movie marathon night, I don’t have to do this all over again.

So now lets see. What kinds of fun genres do we have?

#         Worst horror/thriller movies ever

#         Greatest Fantasy films

#         Greatest Life films

These are the three lists I’ve come up with. I know that the godfather has more than one film but we do have all night! In a few post I maybe will make a tutorial on how to make my favourite film snack.

I do have yet another question for you –What is your favourite theme for a nice movie marathon night? Just leave a comment here below.

Forgotten Childhood Movies

As a nineties kid I think we had the best movies ever. I wonder if the ’00 will do the same… If I’m looking trough my list of my favourite childhood movies (a lot of Disney tough) I spot that I’ve forgotten about a lot of awesome movies too.

Who remembers the Casper, the friendly Ghost? I loved this movie so bad when I was a child. I can remember I was really afraid of that woman who turns into a ghost at the end. What I also remembered is that I liked Casper better when he was in ghost-form than when he was a human. It discussed me that he transformed… although I don’t know why I did. I was just a weird child.

 

 

Another favourite was the little princess. I adored this movie. This girl was just so full of life and in that time of my life I really needed that. That even though it is a hard time there is a always better thing to think about and to live for. What I also remember is the guy with the tulip. You know, the one who gave them a free breakfast. Because of him I never trust a man with a tulip again.

 

 

These are just two of my forgotten childhood movies. I wonder do you have any forgotten childhood movies? Of what were you favourite movies?

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.

What did you think of this movie or what is your favourite movie?
