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.
