    Murder on the Orient Express


    Okay, it was really hard for me to rate this movie, and I'm not quite sure if my rating really represents the way I perceived it. It's even hard to describe what was going on in my head while watching this movie. I come to think of phrases like "boring", "strange characters", "bad CGI" and, most of all: "Who was that person again?!" It was really hard to follow the "Who is who" of the train, and not only did…

    Big Hero 6

    What do people like about this movie? I don't get it. Was the performance of Bruce Willis that great? Hardly. Was the incredible plot twist at the end that amazing? I seriously doubt it. Was Haley Joel Osment's performance good? Yes, and it was the only good thing about this movie. Sorry, but that wasn't enough.

    About two years after I've watched the very disappointing "The Sixth Sense", I thought I'd give this movie a chance as well. Haley Joel Osment was good in it, as he was in "The Sixth Sense". But again, that was the only good thing about it. The rest of the story was just pathetic. At the end, I really couldn't do anything but shake my head about it. And what really almost offended me was that quote about "MAN-hattan - the end of the world". Yeah right, I guess that's what people in Manhattan really believe? Sorry, that's just not my taste.
