Mr. Popper's Penguins review

Posted : 5 months ago on 26 February 2015 04:05 (A review of Mr. Popper's Penguins)

First, I'm giving 6/10 for the 6 penguins in the film :)
Totally inconsistent script. Nothing makes sense (from an adult's POV) and brings out too many questions as previously mentioned by another reviewer. While the movie might be seen by (mostly) kids, somewhere down the line, the script still has to make sense. It didn't. Acting performances were horrible, except for the penguins :)

OK, I'm biased, I adore penguins. Can you tell?- ^_^

Big Hero 6 review

Posted : 5 months ago on 26 February 2015 03:56 (A review of Big Hero 6)

It's just plain adorable. You want one... This movie has just the right amount of adorableness for kids and adults. Quite entertaining.

Leviathan review

Posted : 5 months ago on 26 February 2015 03:56 (A review of Leviathan)

If anyone had told me by watching this I'd be (somewhat) reliving the years I spent living (or surviving) in Russia, I wouldn't have given it a second look. Went through the entire thing, it depicts the way "things" go there and how they are resolved... Sadly realistic.

Citizenfour review

Posted : 5 months ago on 26 February 2015 03:55 (A review of Citizenfour)

Nothing remotely interesting about the way the story's told. The camera work, particularly at the beginning, was terribly amateurish. If you can make it through that, the story is interesting and actually sort of scary when you think about it.

Nightcrawler review

Posted : 5 months ago on 26 February 2015 03:54 (A review of Nightcrawler)

Could have been called Nightcreeper. Totally dislikable character played by Gyllenhaal, but what an awesome performance. His character is extremely well-written. Not a fan of Gyllenhaal, but if there's one movie to watch him in, I'd say this is it.

Into the Woods review

Posted : 5 months, 4 weeks ago on 3 February 2015 01:20 (A review of Into the Woods)

Not much of a musical fan. That said, it's a decent watch, with decent special effects. Streep was superbly cast. Decent adaptation from stage to screen.

Still Alice review

Posted : 5 months, 4 weeks ago on 3 February 2015 01:16 (A review of Still Alice)

actors performing have a much too calm reaction to this dramatic event IMO (director's choice obviously). still not a bad movie, however it's a little too melodramatic for me. and much too slow.

The Gambler review

Posted : 5 months, 4 weeks ago on 3 February 2015 01:15 (A review of The Gambler)

This talks the talk, but is darn too talkative (much too much talk), and its main character is not clearly defined. Definitely not the film I expected, nor the performances Mark Wahlberg is known for.

Two Days, One Night review

Posted : 5 months, 4 weeks ago on 3 February 2015 01:14 (A review of Two Days, One Night)

Nothing new to be learned here, but there's something very humane in the performances, both acting and directing.

Kill the Messenger review

Posted : 5 months, 4 weeks ago on 3 February 2015 01:13 (A review of Kill the Messenger)

The first hour is great and exciting, looked like it was on a good roll, unfortunately it starts going downhill, however it is still an enjoyable action-thriller film with decent (and good-looking) actors ;)

“BAM, that was quite an opening! This is definitely worth watching: directing, performance, costume, sets, etc. I'm not old enough to know much on or about Martin Luther King so unsure on accuracy (hence the rating), Yet this remains an eye opener, as I suspect it'll be for most viewers.” read more

“To paraphrase a friend... "The film simplifies his character to a point that borders on offensive.

Cumberbatch's performance is most ” read more

“Can't think of a better title for this film, because that's exactly what it is, the story of an unbroken man, despite what he's been through as a POW in Japan. Nothing else stood out in the entire film. It's just another film about war. But worth watching.” read more

Thanks for the vote on 2046, doudouce. I'm not much of a romantic so I think that's another reason why I disliked the film so much seeing as it was meant to be some sort of romance. A twisted sort of romance in my opinion but perhaps I have no idea what I'm on about not being a romantic! Point is you might like it if you like 'romantic' films... Maybe, but then again it might just irritate you...
