The Road [2009]

 “I told the boy when you dream about bad things happening, it means you’re still fighting and you’re still alive. It’s when you start to dream about good things that you should start to worry”. I’ve had enough of post-apocalyptic movies. The only one I really enjoyed was “The […]

Iron Man 2 [2010]

I don’t trust sequels. But somehow, I expected “Iron Man 2” to be as good  as the first one. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. I’m not sure what exactly went wrong, but all I can say is that I had mixed feeling about it. The movie picks up […]

Leap Year [2010]

Exactly what you’d expect from a romantic comedy; It’s cheesy as hell, but the 2 stars (Amy Adams and Mathew Goode) make this entirely watchable. The irish scenery adds charm to it aswell (I bet it was an excuse to make this movie in the first place). But […]

Remember Me [2010]

 “You once told me, our fingerprints don’t fade from the lives we touch. Is that true for everybody, or is it just poetic bullshit?”  If you forget the fact that Rob Pattinson was dreadful in the Twilight movies, then you might find something here. But it’s hard to […]

The Great Buck Howard [2008]

An almost forgotten movie that deserved more attention at the time of its release.  It’s the story of a man (Colin Hanks) who quits law school and becomes  assistant to an illusionist in decline. His father (played by Tom Hanks) has other plans. Funny, and full of surprises, this well […]

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 […]
