  • Locke 2013

    ★★½ Watched 12 Oct, 2014

    Mixed feeling about Locke. It's more like who he is than what he does. Liked the dialoques and the story, but was eager for more. As a film this is great, but didn't like too open ending and it ruined it for me. Also, listening people talk over the phone is just plain dull. It's just like a glimpse of someone's life. It's just one bit about life and we see that every day. Liked the mood and the rain. Wanted to everything else about it, but just didn't. Too bad.

  • Maleficent 2014

    ★★½ Watched 11 Oct, 2014

    They made her good? Interesting, yet quite stupid and boring. One of those remakes you just have to make to get viewers. Quite entertaining for a while, but tries too hard to bring something new to the table and fails miserably. Anyway, fun to watch with family.

  • Edge of Tomorrow 2014

    ★★★ Watched 05 Oct, 2014

    Despite being the mix of Source Code and The Matrix, I liked it. Not that funny jokes, not that great effort, but fun to watch. Nothing special, but yet really watchable. I liked it. Added to my list: Time travelling.

  • A Million Ways to Die in the West 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 07 Sep, 2014

    I like Seth MacFarlane an his stuff. Ted was hilarious. This film is quite light, but different and solid funny film. One star specifically for including Doc in the film, as a fan I just loved that little detail. Liam Neeson, Giovanni Ribisi, Amanda Seyfried, Charlize Theron and Neil Patrick Harris were good company for an hour and a half. Tried too much or not, I liked this film and got really entertained.

  • The Raid 2 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 07 Sep, 2014

    The sequel of The Raid is definitely better than the first movie. More plot, more action, more fighting. This is IT. Gore, blood spilled, raw action, nothing is missing from this film. Iko Uwais is the new Bruce Lee. A very masterfully crafted action film. I would say this is one of the best action films of this era. Highly recommended.

  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014

    ★★★ Watched 01 Sep, 2014

    Slightly better than the first movie. The action is too numbing to my taste and Captain America is maybe the least favourite super hero to watch in my book, don't know why exactly. Well spent two hours with great actors and surprisingly unpredictable plot, but a tad bit overrated.

  • Oculus 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 01 Sep, 2014

    Oculus is a really interesting fresh horror film. I really like films with mirrors and this reminds me a bit of The Brøken, which I liked. The film is nicely told with all the flashbacks to the past smoothly transitioned to the scenes. Liked the nightmarish, monotonic soundtrack and the quite original considering the used theme. Great, unexpected thrills.

  • Forks Over Knives 2011

    ★★½ Watched 30 Aug, 2014

    Nice try. It becomes clear very quickly what the message is with this film. Eat plants, it makes you healthy. That's a good thing, I know it, but being a poor eater myself I really think as long as you eat moderately and proper food without over-eating you'll be just fine. Dumping every animal based food doesn't magically solve everything and guarantee long lasting life, I'm sorry, but each one of us can get hit by a bus any time…

  • Jack 1996

    ★★★½ Watched 19 Aug, 2014

    Robin Williams was a big part of my childhood through this film and many others. This time I watched Jack with slightly different state of mind. The ending really got me.

    Please, don't worry so much. Because in the end, none of us have very long on this Earth. Life is fleeting. And if you're ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through…

  • Open Grave 2013

    ★★★ Watched 17 Aug, 2014

    Original, suspenseful, interesting. Loved the mysteriousness, but in some point everything became too clear too soon. Decent acting. Some parts predictable, but overally good mystery-horror film. Easily forgettable.

  • Joe 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 17 Aug, 2014

    Joe is rough and depressive film. One of the few modern movies where Nicolas Cage seems to really succeed with his acting. The melancholic state and a discreet soundtrack are really effective and cause nice thrills throughout the movie. A very good real life drama.

  • 21 & Over 2013

    Watched 08 Aug, 2014

    Not funny. Didn't laugh once. Extremely annoying main characters, weak plot, stupid stuff. Almost unbearable towards the ending.
