Cinderella (2015)

Movie

With a character like Cinderella, and with a story of a common girl becoming the princess through the magic of her godmother, one knows how the movie will end before they even enter the cinema. Told through animation, told through movies retelling the same story or a story similar to Cinderella – everybody, more or less, knows what to expect. Therefore, the challenge is not about changing the story but finding a new, a refreshing way of retelling the beloved…

Fight Club (1999)

Movie

This post is kind of a special one because it really doesn’t fit into my well organized system of reviews. It doesn’t really go under the Back On Track feature because I’ve seen Fight Club numerous times before but then it also doesn’t go together with the regular reviews that I usually tend to write about movies I’ve seen for the first time. So as I love symbolic meanings, I can say that to me, Fight Club is not just…

Les Misérables (2012)

Movie

First off, don’t be mad about the rating, I know it’s super low and most likely will anger many Hathaway fans, Jackman fans and Hooper fans as well, but I just couldn’t rate it higher than this.

Second reason being the fact that this movie happened to be in…

# 231 – Tim Burton (Director special)

Director Movie

Hoping that this wouldn’t be the first and the last director special I’m gonna start off with Burton and his creations. Born in August 25, 1958 Burton showed early signs of creativity and…

# 143 – The King’s Speech

Movie

The last Colin Firth movie for me was A Single Man and I thought that he can’t get any better.. oh man, was I wrong! Colin Firth has been climbing the ladder of success these last few years and has been nominated for an Oscar which he probably will get. Why? I think being somebody who has to use his voice for a profession and then portraying somebody who doesn’t have it but should have it and must have it…

# 111 – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Movie

Before I came a critic (almost have the paper to prove this fact) I watched a lot of movies. Now that I have some extra knowledge about the movie world I have re-watched my favorites. Mostly, I have noticed, I still like them and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is no exception. The first thing people should know is that this movie is directed by Tim Burton – one of my favorite directors out there. He is different, he is…
