Kick-Ass [2010]

Mark Strong has had a busy year playing villains (“Sherlock Holmes”, “Robin Hood), and it fits him perfectly. That guy really knows how to make the audience hate his guts. As for the movie, one shouldn’t expect too much from it, otherwise you might end up disappointed. It’s […]

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 […]

Frenzy [1972]

 “Do I look like a sex murderer to you? Can you imagine me creeping around London, strangling all those women with ties? That’s ridiculous… For a start, I only own two”. Hitchcock at his best, telling the story of London strangler (who only murders young women), and an […]

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 […]

The Freshman [1925]

“The Freshman” is one of Harold LLoyd’s best work. He plays a nerdy college student who’ willing to do anything to become popular on campus. But of course its no easy task, especially when the college bully humiliates him in front of the whole school. This one features […]

The Breakfast Club [1985]

“We’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that’s all”. The Breakfast Club” is one of the coolest movies of the 80’s (my favorite remains “Ferris Bueller’s day off)”. And I admit that it took me a long time to finally watch it. […]

White Zombie [1932]

Nobody can pull it off better than Bela Lugosi. In “White Zombie”, he plays a voodoo master who transforms a bride to be into a soulless zombie. His fiancee must now save her before its too late. Classic horror movie with a chilling, one of a kind atmosphere. […]

Torn Curtain [1966]

They said it was one of Hitchcock’s weakest movies. I agree on that. But what they really meant was: weak compared to his other films. In fact, Torn Curtain is not a bad movie at all. The first 30 minutes are a bit confusing but then the story […]
