Movie Review: Jason Bourne(2016)

SKIP! It seems the only reason to have this film made was to reboot the franchise and had Matt Damon resumed his role as Bourne. Otherwise, I was at a lost watching this actions packed film that didn’t really have a story to tell; the special effects: ip tracking, fighting and car chasing, could have […]

Movie Review: Jurassic World (2015)

Finally I watched 2015 summer blockbuster, Jurassic World(2015). The re-boot of the franchise Jurassic Park(1993) being the first and the most memorable. I went to see the 20th anniversary 3D remastered in 2013, and I liked it a lot. Back then I said the 3D effects were worth the ticket price. It should be the same for Jurassic World, cause […]

Movie Review: Annie(2014)

2014’s Annie was horrible, so I have read, mostly because people have grown up with Annie(s) on Broadway, in school play, in movie, and on TV.  Re-invented classic is hard to be un-bias and successful: 27% Tomatometer.  The transformation of Annie from European to Afro-American was certainly not the first as story re-telling was concerned. Do you remember Whitney Houston‘s fairy Godmother, and Black […]

Movie Review: Tammy(2014)

Perhaps this film was an answer to The Expendables franchise, cause I haven’t seen a film that had so many female dramatic actresses (TV and Movie) all under one roof: Susan Sarandon (Oscar), Kathy Bates (Oscar), Allison Janney, Toni Collette, Sandra Oh (Golden Globe). With this cast, poor Melissa McCarthy was set up for failure! And you can tell she was swimming upstream.  In 1991 Thelma & Louise, Thelma (Geena Davis) and Louise (Susan […]

Movie Review: If I Stay (2014)

Probably two reasons someone will watch this: she is between 8-14, or a fan of Chloë Grace Moretz. Her most memorable film for me is definitely Hit-girl in Kick-Ass (2010), the first one. I am sure we will see more of this coming-of-age child actor for a long time. I forgot she was (Carrie White) in Carrie(2013). This […]

Movie Review: 3 Days to Kill (2013)

Abort and off the grid was the standard protocol for its agents if a CIA’s special operation failed, so I thought. Not really in this case, after the mission was compromised, agents leaped out of their supposingly clandestine van, and start shooting at the bad guys, and vice versa, and suddenly the hotel upper level got […]

Movie Review: 300: Rise of an Empire(2014)

“You fight as hard as you f**k!”. How could anyone resist a film that gave such bold a line? On top, completed with scene of hungry sexual gazes of two enemies in their sword embrace, while caring less of  their wounds, nor oozing salty crimson blood. All they cared was their clandestine  polar desire to f**k again and again! […]
