  • Ella Enchanted 2004

    ★★★ Watched 08 Sep, 2014

    A fun little flick with a charming cast. While Anne Hathaway stood out as the girl under the spell it took me a few moments until my brain realized the Prince is Will Graham from Hannibal. :D
    This is the kind of film you can watch when you're in a bad mood (as I was) - it'll pick you up in no time. Also, GIRLPOWER, FTW!

  • How I Live Now 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 07 Sep, 2014

    As others have said, the whole love story bit is not totally believable, and I chose to see the trip home more as a trip back to the place where Daisy was happy, instead of trying to find Eddie.
    That being said, the film is beautifully shot and all the kids are wonderful actors. I really enjoyed the scenes in the countryside, where they roamed around on their own, enjoying themselves, far away from any pestering grown-ups.
    A very dark, atmospheric film that at times reminded me of "Rabbit-Proof Fence".

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Apr, 2012

    The focus is not on the monsters/special effects, they're simply the backdrop of a wonderful movie about friendship. I thought I knew what to expect, but it was much better. Amazing actors all around, too!

    ★★★★★ Added

    If you haven't seen it: There are 5 people on the cast list. Yes, 5. Those are all the people who appear on screen during the whole movie. And 3 of them are only in for like 10 minutes, the movie basically rests on the shoulders of Patrick Wilson and Ellen Page, and boy, can these two act! Especially Ellen Page, I mean, she was 18 (looking like 14) when the movie was made and she's simply incredible in it.…
