Avatar – Movie Review

Avatar is a technological leap. Cameron got what her wanted. The animation is so real, you don’t think of it as animation. The 3D is so good, you forget about the glasses you wear.  In fact, it is so good, it’s very easy to get used to and forget it’s great. if movies will start using that … Read more

Where the Wild Things Are – Movie Review

This movie reminds me of The Hitch Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy movie. No, they have almost nothing to do with each other. But to me, it seems that both movies appeal mostly to people who read and loved the book, and seeing it without being someone from the well defined group makes you wonder … Read more

Zombieland – Movie Review

Zombieland – Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin… Ah, Woody, Woody…you’re cool…been a natural born killer before, but not of unnatural zombies…for me it was White Men Can’t Jump that really made him (sure, Cheers was there first, but….). Jesse Eisenberg is doing his nerdish act in an excellent way, Emma Stone is doing … Read more

District 9 – Movie Review

Not bad… Half of D-9 is like a documentary. At first, in my opinion (of course…) it is stretching the documentary like part too much, to a point I was thinking “well, where’ s the action part?”. The casting of Sharlto Copley is excellent. He plays his character and develop it in an excellent way, in looks and in behavior. I find the … Read more

9 – Movie Review

9,  Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov animated movie, with voices by Elijah Wood, Jennifer Connelly, John C. Reilly and others, to a story and directed by Shane Acker. Technically this movie is beautiful. The animation, from facial expressions to body movements in action scenes, expulsions, gasses and lighting effects, the artistic and atmosphere creating scenery is … Read more

Eagle Eye – Movie Review

  Fun action movie with some “borrowed” elements. Without putting a spoiler here, I’d just say that the story is about a person (and he’s getting company later) that one day starts to get commands and be controlled by someone to actions he is forced to do with no choice.  Of course there’s much more, … Read more

Righteous Kill – Movie Review

        Good acting and OK story, slow at times. The story is about a cop who takes the law in his own hands (a “Dexter” if you watch HBO, but without the slice and dice…), with twists and turns. Robert De Niro and Al Pacino are being and acting exactly as you … Read more

Burn After Reading – Movie Review

If you get the Coen brothers,  you’ll dig this movie. It’s a story of not so sharp people finding a disk that they believe contain classified info, trying to sell it, and creating a whole mixed up story around it. Acting is great, from Brad Pitt as the gym instructor, the angry John Malkovich, the … Read more
