    The Book of Eli

    I've thought about watching this movie quite often, for nearly ten years, I just didn't get around to see it. But today, it ended up as #2 on a "watch list shuffle" (#1 was not easily obtainable), so decided to watch it.

    I love dystopian movies, and stories, and among those I've seen/read this places somewhere in the middle, similar to the Divergent series. The dystopian milieu is interesting, and "appealing", but very little is explained. Like: What happened; or:…

    The Bourne Legacy

    Slightly different in tone from the previous Bourne movies, but, more notably, it's not really a Bourne movie. The movie mentions Bourne (to legitimate using Bourne in the title*‽) once or twice, and is part of the same universe. But now there's this other, similar to Treadstone/Blackbriar, project that aims to create super soldiers. It's like having a Bond movie, but it's about agent 008 Bill Timothy**.

    This movie feels a bit like a mix between Fight Club…

    Outside the Wire

    This movie started to lose me nearly 20 minutes in, when they've decided to change the geography of Europe and put Ukraine in the Balkans.

    I'm not very impressed by this movie, it's not a bad movie, but I wouldn't call it good either, it's just "Meh".

    The acting is good, the visuals and production design is good, the script is decent, but the plot isn't particularly good..
    It had me thinking it would go in a different direction several…
