Solitary Man [2009]

If you want something completely different from the usual crap we see nowadays, I suggest you watch Solitary Man. Michael Douglas is on top of his game as a man who watches his life go down the drain because of his job and romantic indiscretions. He is divorced, his daughter […]

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 […]

The Abyss [1989]

“When it comes to the safety of these people, there’s me and then there’s God, understand?”. Exciting underwater adventure about a diving team that encounters an alien aquatic species while searching for a lost nuclear submarine. Ed Harris leads a solid cast in this incredibly entertaining movie from […]

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 Third Man [1949] ★★★★

 “In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.  In Switzerland they had brotherly love – they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock”. Terrific […]

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 […]

The Corpse Vanishes [1942]

“I find a coffin much more comfortable than a bed”. Bela Lugosi as a mad scientist who abducts young brides, put them in a zombie-like state, take their blood, and inject it into his aging wife to keep her forever young. Need we say more? Bela Lugosi trivia: […]

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 […]
