Inception [2010]

”Inception” is a movie that requires a lot of attention. And like most of Christopher Nolan’s movies (“Memento”, “The prestige”…), it will take your brain on a rollercoaster ride. The story is so beautifully crafted, that it’s almost impossible to find a plot hole. So far this year, […]

The Joneses [2010]

Clever, well written movie about a “Stealth Marketting Firm” that hires a fake “perfect” family in order to impress the resident of a small town with their cool gadgets, sexy car and a great lifestyle. Funny and incredibly entertaining, though it becomes a bit dramatic towards the end. But […]

The Wolfman [2010]

 Here’s another classic monster that returns to the screen after years of absence. The comeback is good, but it’s not excellent. I guess what bugged me here is the final battle that has hollywood written all over it (a la “The Incredible Hulk”, and “Iron Man” which were […]

Gone Baby Gone [2007]

 Ben Affleck should definitely quit his acting job and get behind the camera permanently because Gone Baby gone is a terrific movie. Two detectives are investigating the kidnapping of a little girl, but they soon find themselves dragged into a dark and very disturbing world. The entire cast […]

Teeth [2007]

  Not exactly what I call an achievement in movie making, but “Teeth” might leave some viewers (especially guys) traumatized for life. A girl suffers from a condition called “Vagina dentata” (toothed vagina) and kills everyone who tries to have sex with her (unintentionally of course).  Weird subject […]

The Messenger [2009]

   Ben Foster and Woody Harrelson are both excellent in this drama about 2 soldiers who are assigned to bring the bad news to the families of fallen soldiers. Powerful subject, hard to stomach at times, but extremely well done and very moving.  Harrelson has never been better […]

Killers [2010]

Ashton Kutcher gives one of his worst performances in one of the most dreadful movies I’ve seen this year. Even Tom Selleck couldn’t save this from being a complete waste of time. Katherine Heigl left Grey’s Anatomy to focus on her movie career; so far it’s not looking […]

Alice In Wonderland [2010]

 I wonder if Tim Burton has lost his mind. His version of “Alice In Wonderland” is a fine example of that.  Wonderland is no longer a beautiful place here, instead it looks more like a nightmare that refuses to end. What a shame. All those wonderful characters from […]
