Yes Man

Yes Man

Yesterday I saw “Yes Man” in the movies.  I remember thinking that it should be a funny but pretty average film back when seeing the trailer.  So I wasn’t expecting much of it.  Due to the lack of options, decided to go see it anyway.

I have to say that I enjoyed it more than average.  It was very kind, positive, and funny.  Of course, it was a little bit sad, as is usual with Jim Carrey movies.  But overall it was pretty good.  Much better than expected.  I don’t know if it was a combination of the film and my own mood, but by now I don’t even care.  I laughed outloud a few times and that rarely has to do with my mood.

Grab it on DVD or see it at the movies – you’ll equally enjoy it.  7 out of 10.


The other day I went to the cinema to see “Wanted“.  I’ve been waiting for this film for some time now, since I liked the trailer and heard quite a few positive reviews from people who saw it earlier. It wasn’t a disappointment at all.  On the contrary.  I really liked it.  In fact, I’m planning to go and see it once again, while it is on the large screen, and then I want to get myself the DVD with all the extras and special features.

Excellent special effects, great soundtrack, and quite a few twists in the story – some of which are predictable and some are not – all these makes it into an excellent entertainment.  Of course, Angeline Jolie with gun fights and car chases is a major attraction as well.  Morgan Freeman is a nice addition.  But what I liked the most about the movie is its originality.  Not breathtaking kind, but the kind which really made me watch it in full attention.  Rarely do I come across something from Hollywood and have this feeling.

Overall, 9 out of 10.  Strongly recommended.
