It Chapter Two (2019)

Movie

It’s been a hot minute since I sat down and wrote a review. It has been so long I feel like I don’t even know how and where to begin. And it has been quite a while since I saw this movie so… let’s see how it holds up! I’ll start with the simplest of ways. I did not love It Chapter Two. The movie had its moments, some of which will forever remain my favourite, but overall, the magic…

Crimson Peak (2015)

Movie

When the words be aware of the crimson peak are whispered to the young Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) in the beginning of the movie, the meaning of that message is lost until it will be too late. The effect of those words translates similarly to the audience, but when the secret behind crimson peak is revealed to both Edith and the audience, it’s almost like a jolt of disappointment because it happens way too carelessly for it to have a profound effect.…

The Martian (2015)

Movie

Ever since I read Andy Weir’s book The Martian, I’ve been itching to see its screen adaption with Matt Damon as Mark Watney. Anticipation was definitely there, expectations were definitely high and even though it didn’t bump Mad Max: Fury Road off its pedestal, The Martian hit all the right notes and is an amazing example of a sci-fi movie that makes you wonder how capable the human race is against the vast and mysterious universe.…

Zero Dark Thirty (2012)

Movie

Going through the entire list of Best Picture nominations finally ended up in a place where the three last movies were the ones I wasn’t excited to see. Zero Dark Thirty happened to be one of them because of Bigelow’s earlier work, The Hurt Locker, which despite its award success, left me a bit unsatisfied. And as my suspicions about her newest war related work accompanied me throughout Zero Dark Thirty, I was yet again a bit disappointed and honestly,…

The Tree of Life (2011)

Movie

This post is scheduled. I’m currently on holiday and will be answering Your comments when I get back. Be sure to leave some, so returning to rain and wind would be more enjoyable. Missing some of the most talked about movies last year wasn’t my intention, it just happened and I never got around to watch them because.. well, I didn’t feel like it. Then all of a sudden I got my motivation back and I have since watched many…

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted

Movie

My trust in IMDb starts to crumble down in moments like these: I went to see how much lower the score for Madagascar 3 is compared to the first two animated movies and it turns out it is better, 7.2 against two scores of 6.7. Same thing happened in Rotten Tomatoes but luckily Metacritic was on my side and rated at least the first movie better than the third. So what happened? Was I just that tired or was I…

# 266 – The Help

Movie

Emma Stone is having an amazing year, she is the newest upcoming A-list actress who is not only funny but seems absolutely adorable as a person as well. There is no reason not to like her and that is why I love her! I have liked all her characters and her takes on roles pretty much the last two and a half years. Crazy Stupid Love DVD just happens to be next to my computer right now – oh, joy!…
