Gemma Arterton might be a good reason for me to like this movie, but it is not. She is gorgeous, even as a Vampire, but the truth is that the movie is kind of interesting. It is a drama, more than anything else. There are no really stale moments, and the story is quite fluid. But the best thing on the movie is not just vampires that do not bite (but use a pointy nail), but the way the story is told. In different moments different characters tell parts of the relevant story. And as you might imagine, given it is a Vampire story, we are not talking about a few years story, but more than 200 years of story. Not all those years are relevant, but you understand the idea. Just like some comment on ICheckMovies, I can say this is a refreshing Vampires movie. Not the usual boring way. Very different. I kind of liked it (not a favorite movie, but enough for a 7 in 10 @ IMDB).
Tamara Drewe (2010) is a story about love and betrayal, sex and teenager rubbish. I will not describe the plot here as you can read a minimal description on IMDB, and giving more information than that would have too many spoilers. In any case, the movie is somewhere in between romance and comedy, although it includes some drama scenes. Of course that I can not let this post pass without talking about Gemma Arterton (Tamara Drewe) that is a beautiful girl. In fact, you can browse my blog and you’ll see another reference to her, for Quantum of Solace. Very nice girl.
