Paper Heart [2009]

I don’t usually have a problem with documentary-like movies. But “Paper Heart” is pushing it. Is it real? is it all an act? We never really know. And by the time it’s over, we don’t really care anymore. This was supposed to be a sweet, romantic movie, but […]

Predators [2010]

If you’re a fan of the “Predator” series, “Alien” and possibly “Aliens vs Predators”, then you will probably watch this one aswell. Others, be sure to know what you’re getting: an action movie that will surely mean nothing to you once it’s over. I must admit, I expected […]

Blindness [2008]

A town is suddenly struck by some kind of a virus, and everyone is going blind, except for one woman who seems to be immune to the disease. Though we don’t really know the origin of the virus, the movie takes us on a long journey of survival, […]

Repo Men [2010]

Weak sci-fi movie set in the future, when artificial organs can be purchased on credit. A man (Jude Law) who recently bought a heart is having trouble making the payments, so he must go on the run before his heart is “repossessed”. A good premise, but it goes […]

Peacock [2010]

Bizarre movie (to say  the least) about a man who goes to work everyday dressed as a normal guy, but transforms himself into his dead mother during the night.  This went straight to DVD (with no theatrical release), and it’s easy to see why. Cillian Murphy is not a […]

Coraline [2009]

Exceptional animated movie from director Henry Selleck (“The Nightmare Before Christmas”) about  a young girl who finds a secret door in her new home and discovers an alternate version of her life. Funny, with a chilling atmosphere and unique sense of humour. Director Seleck worked on the production […]

9 [2009]

In a post apocalyptic world, there are no humans living anymore. Instead, the world is ruled by machines with an appetite for destruction. When 9 comes to life, he discovers a small community of others like him who are trying to survive and soon realizes that they must […]

After.Life [2010]

A young woman (Christina Ricci) dies in a car accident and wakes up in a morgue to find her funeral director (Liam Neeson) preparing her body for the funeral. She feels very much alive but the man keeps telling her that she’s in transition to the afterlife.  So […]

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice [2010]

“I have been searching all over the world for you. You’re going to be a force for good and a very important sorcerer. But for now, you’re my apprentice.” If you’re a fan of magic and/or Nicolas Cage, then you will probably enjoy “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”. The way the folks […]

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid [2010]

Full of jokes, pranks and silliness you’d expect to see in this type of film. But it works, thanks to a very likable cast. “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” is a pleasant surprise, it’s nothing we haven’t seen before, but it’s fun nevertheless. Stay tuned for a very […]
