Léon: The Professional (1994)

Movie

Since I’m still not ready to review The Dark Knight Rises I thought I’d give Léon the Thursday’s limelight and share my thoughts on the movie. First off, I didn’t end up liking the movie as much as I anticipated because I still feel weird about kids killing/helping out in the process of killing people. In addition, I also have not so positive feelings towards Natalie Portman, therefore Léon: The Professional became a good movie instead of a great one…

# 261 – Hesher

Movie

As far as debut films go, Spencer Susser created a fine piece of screen work when he wrote and directed Hesher. Like I said last year (in the 50/50 post), Hesher is among my favorites and there are various reasons for this notion. The plot of the movie is quite dark – a young boy T.J. (Devin Brochu), in the center of it all, has lost his mother and in some ways, his depressed father (Rainn Wilson). There is some…

# 223 – Thor

Movie

Being behind with my posts has been quite stressful cause I keep taking on new TV-shows and movies and now I’m under a big load of posts that need to be written. So my conscious is telling me to finally write the review for Thor which I watched like a month ago or something. For those who don’t know, Thor is one of the comic-book movies that comes together with Captain America, Iron Man and others in The Avengers. That…

# 167 – No Strings Attached

Movie

Yesterday was another successful day because I managed to watch a new movie that I wasn’t really looking forward to. It’s funny that I sometimes watch movies just for the entertainment of their stupidity. Like with No Strings Attached, the whole story evolving made me quite mad – probably because I could never relate to this woman Natalie Portman portrays in this one. Cold and calculating, unable to love a perfectly decent man. Not that Ashton Kutcher is decent, it’s…

# 138 – Golden Globes

Extra Mettel Ray

You guys have no idea how good it feels to write my blog again. After a long week filled with school work and exams I feel like a giant stone has been lifted from my mind. But don’t get me wrong, doing all that (writing, studying, reading), I still managed to go to the movies (twice!), watch a movie, watch two shows (4 seasons all together) and keep myself updated on the trailers and Golden Globes. I know, I’m like…

# 129 – Black Swan

Movie

I can finally get to cross out this amazing movie from my waiting list. That being said, I’m pretty sure I’m gonna watch this movie again because it is a true visual treat. Story itself supports it and together they allow viewers to have a great experience with this one. And in addition, you really have to think about the movie after wards – you can’t just watch it and then forget about it. That’s why it is good to…
