Gamer

Gamer

Went to see “Gamer” in the movies yesterday.  As you might know, I actually expected this film.

It turned out to be quite a disappointment – silly story with a lot of non-sense, very shallow characters, horrible dialogues, extremely annoying shaky camera and fast cut editing, and overall feeling of pop.  There were some good special effects, but they were practically lost to fast cuts and horrible rush through the movie.

Overall rating 2 stars.

Ice Age : Dawn of the Dinosaurs

Ice Age : Dawn of the Dinosaurs

Just came back from the cinema, where Maxim and I watched “Ice Age : Dawn of the Dinasours” – the third film of the series.

While we had good time and enjoyed it, there is nothing much I can say about this part – same good animation, some new characters and some old ones, A light story, a few good morales about family and friendship values.  It’s a work of good quality, but without much of a spark to it.  Recommended for family selection and kids.

Overall rating – 4 stars, good.

Righteous Kill

Either one of Robert De Niro and Al Pacino is enough to attract attention to the movie.  When they are both in the same movie – that’s something that needs to be seen, no matter what the critics or ratings say.  And that’s why I went to watch “Righteous Kill” today.

Altogether, the film was rather average – not much dynamics and action for a police movie, predictable story with a lot of cliches, dialogs really off sometimes, and so, and so forth.  But.  There was enough good acting, and there was enough thought provoking.  I mean it’s not a philosophical movie by any measure, but it covers a few morals and gives enough time to the audience to poke around the good, the evil, and the fine line between the two.

Overall, maybe not worthy the big screen, but good enough for a DVD rent.  6.5 out of 10.

The Fan

With all the heat that we are having here in Cyprus, anything that sounds like a chill out sounds like a really good thing. I know that “The Fan” could have several meanings but I picked it up anyway.
