Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)

I know this is an old movie. After watching it I remember I did it before. Well, regarding it, what can I say? Of course I can’t comment the special effects. But while some images look cool (see the one above) some other are quite, quite bad (as an example, the small ship used to […]

The Devil’s Violinist (2013)

Really bad movie for what I was expected. It is not a documentary (just like Bohemiam Raphsody isn’t a documentary). Thus, we expect a minimal story. And this story is… well, mostly non existent. Other than that, I was expecting better acting. I know David Garrett is not an actor. But I suppose there was […]

August Rush (2007)

Someone told me and my sister about this movie, as being nice, and interesting to present to music students (10 yo). I took the chance to watch it too. And although there is a lot I can argue about (namely to someone learn how to write music from a single explanation of the position of […]

Chef (2014)

Another movie that was in the TV, and that I started watching just because I like the title. I will not talk about the story. It is nothing really new, and it is quite simple (I could explain the whole movie in two lines). But the movie is enjoyable, fun, and results on some good […]

Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005)

Again, taking the Christmas holidays to see some movies in the TV. I had this in my to-see list for some time, as I found the plot idea interesting. And I can say the movie delivers it. Of course it is a typical Hollywood plot, with all ending well, and with the main characters surviving […]

Now You See Me (2013)

While the fact of having Isla Fisher or Mélanie Laurent could make me rate this movie high, the truth is that I can’t. I can’t see any interest in the movie. There is a story, but so vacuous… And if one wants a movie about magic, or it makes it really about magic, and has […]

Drop Zone (1994)

It looks like that lately I am watching the movies that inspired Grand Theft Auto. Yesterday it was Gone in Sixty Seconds, with car boosting, racing the police, et al. Today, Drop Zone, with parachute diving, namely into a moving truck. Nothing I didn’t do before… in GTA. Well, regarding the movie, it is yet […]

Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000)

One more oldie found in the TV. The type of movie I like with cars, speed, humour and some violence. Ah, and with a chick. This time Angelina Jolie. What a difference from 18 years ago. Not much to say about the movie. Again, Hollywood like story, but this time with a small twist in […]

Bad Teacher (2011)

Yet another movie I just watched because nothing was running better on TV. I never heard of it, even having Cameron Diaz or Justin Timberlake in the cast. Anyway, it is a fun movie. A little crazy (think American Pie, but not that bold). Nice to watch in a afternoon when you do not want […]
