Insurgent (2015)

insurgent ratingBe aware of major spoilers.

Let me start by saying that I did not enjoy Divergent nor Insurgent. In other words, I’ve now spent 258 minutes on this saga, which means I’ve wasted 258 minutes of my life on something completely unsatisfying. It would also be completely pointless if I didn’t run a movie blog where I could warn people to stay away from this one, or at least wait until it comes out on DVD so you wouldn’t have to suffer through its non-existent 3D effects.

Birdman (2014)

Birdman

For my first review of 2015, I’ll try to write about Birdman. This isn’t going to be as complex and interesting as the movie itself because that would be impossible for me to achieve. Instead, I’m going to praise its aspects that stood out without any spoilers because I went in almost completely blind and it blew me away!

Adore (2013)

Adore1“[…] intrigue of watching two motherlovers actually you know each other’s mothers […]” – S. Highfill

In addition to revamping my blog (I just can’t stop), which I do instead of studying like a proper student obviously, I’ve also been watching an unhealthy amount of movies. I won’t be able to write about all of them but as you can see, I’m definitely not passing up the opportunity to write about the controversial Adore. Mothers, their sons and each others lovers – it screams f*cked up and it is, but one just can’t stop watching and not just because of its gorgeous cinematography.

The Impossible (2012)

TheImpossible

This post contains spoilers but in order to keep you from them I wrote this sentence.

The Impossible is a perfect example of a movie that has a big impact with its realistic take on the disaster that shocked the world. I’m not going to lie, there are moments in the movie that will be in my mind for a long time because of its cringe worthy showcase of battle wounds and emotions. Now, weeks later, after I thought my emotions had gone away, I re-watched some scenes and all of those emotions came rushing back. You simply can’t forget The Impossible because it thrives on the one thing that we all can relate to: survival.

# 222 – Margin Call and J. Edgar (Trailer special)

Not to over crowd the blog with trailer posts I’m gonna put two very serious and great movies into one. Starting with a Hollywood A-list packed movie Margin Call and finishing with yet another Clint Eastwood movie which stars the great leading man Leonardo DiCaprio.

Margin Call: This is another Wall Street movie that seems to be a lot better than the one Michael Douglas and Shia LeBouef did simply because it is packed with such great actors I can’t even grasp the seriousness and awesomeness of this movie. Starting with Kevin Spacey and Jeremy Irons the list continues with Zachary Quinto, Paul Bettany, Simon Baker and Stanley Tucci. Some might be also excited for Penn Badgley and Demi Moore but I think the first six guys mentioned are definitely the creme topping of this movie. Who will be the cherry on top? Maybe it’s gonna be a what instead cause the whole story looks promising as well. Though it already had its opening at Sundance Film Festival it’s yet to hit the big screens this upcoming on October 21st

J. Edgar: While Margin Call gathers a lot of great male actors, J. Edgar doesn’t want to fail to deliver the same amount of greatness. Starting with the man behind the camera – Clint Eastwood brings onto the screen the story of J. Edgar Hoover (written by Dustin Lance Black who put Milk on paper which of course he won an Oscar for) the list continues with Leonardo DiCaprio, Armie Hammer, Naomi Watts, Josh Lucas, Ed Westwick (his first very serious movie role!?), Dermot Mulroney and Judi Dench. Not bad either, considering that both of these movies probably end up winning a lot of awards. For J. Edgar you have to wait until the 9th of November. (PS: Leo with brown eyes is weird or is it just me?)
