A Quiet Place (2018)

Movie

Will A Quiet Place do the same for horror in 2018, that Get Out did to horror in 2017? Some say yes, other say no. For me, by adding layers upon layers to a genre that I have stayed away from, both movies have changed my perspective on horror films and what that this genre could really do.…

Sicario (2015)

Movie

The word sicario means hitman in Spanish, and once you know this, you will gain the basic idea what Sicario is about. Maybe an exaggerated version of the reality, maybe a version of the reality we have not used to seeing but is existing out there – either way, Sicario will scare you and it will make you wonder how many bad men have done bad things and gotten away with it because the bad things are done to equally…

Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

Movie

Right from the start I knew there were going to be some expectations, as there was that tiny anticipation bug because it was sci-fi and I had seen the trailer a few times which, in my opinion, managed to set up the premise for Edge of Tomorrow quite nicely. That being said, I never even considered that Tom Cruise would manage to wiggle himself back into my good graces and deliver a great performance in a movie that I’m probably…

Your Sister’s Sister (2012)

Movie

Better late than never I would say when I review the couple of next movies on my blog because I saw them in November. That’s right, I’m basically a whole month behind with my reviews due to school deadlines but I should shut up now and continue with Your Sister’s Sister which I actually enjoyed very much. I had no idea what the movie was about though, had not seen the trailer nor really read the summary. To be honest,…

Looper (2012)

Movie

Let me set the mood: it’s another Friday evening and instead of wasting it at home, brave little me went to the cinema all alone to see her boy kick some time travel ass. I was expecting sci-fi, romance and action (as it was promised to me by somebody I can’t remember) and after 10 minutes of commercials it began with a familiar voice reading the premises of the movie and I loved it already. To be fair, I’m a…

# 178 – Gnomeo & Juliet

Movie

This one I saw like a million years ago, at least it seems like it has been that long. The whole reason why I watched this was because I really like James McAvoy and he was the voice of Gnomeo while Emily Blunt was Juliet. Like the name of the movie implies, the story is about Romeo and Juliet as gnomes – I have to admit, it sounds clever. Gnomeo is the prince of the blues and Juliet is the…

# 160 – The Adjustment Bureau

Movie

Finally somebody was brave enough to go to the movies with me  and according to The Adjustment Bureau this was all part of a plan! The universe’s plan I mean because nothing in this life is a coincidence, although there are chances which apparently can make the plan go south a little bit but then come the adjusters who are angels or something and the chairman is God but that wasn’t actually said out loud but they made enough hints…
