Planet Terror

Planet Terror

Today I watched an excellent movie “Planet Terror“.   It’s packed with action, zombies, quotes, comedy, and romance.  It has lots of special effects, great photography, and music.  If you ever watched more than three zombie movies which were released in late 1980s or early 1990s, you’ll love this film.

It is Robert Rodriguez’ re-incarnation of “Army of Darkness” in the perspective of bio-chemical accident with military personell involvement and a taste of Desperado.  That’s the best description I can come up with.  But really, you should better see this one.

7 out of 10.

Sin City in the movies

Since Olga’s 9th month of pregnancy, going to the movies became a very rare occasion for both of us. It still is. But when I saw “Sin City” on a pirated copy at home, I said that there was no chance that I would miss it in the movies.

Today I finally got a chance to see it on the big screen. I went together with Vladimir who I was waiting to return from his vacations in Paphos. And, boy, did we liked that movie!

It was all as good as I thought it would and even better. Size does matter sometimes and this was one of those times. It was great!

Yeah. If you still have a chance to see it in the movies – go watch it. It’s worth every penny.

Now. When is that DVD coming out?

Sin City

As some of you may remember, I had some really high expectations for “Sin City“. I went as far as forecasting it to be a movie of the year. Today I finally got a chance to see it. I spent close to one tenth of a second considering if I should wait for the local cinemas to catch up with the world or to watch a mild quality cinema screener that was in front of me.
