13 Tzameti [2005] Movie Review Recommendation

13 Tzameti [2005]

Remember the movie 13 that I reviewed a couple of years ago, well this is the original French movie, a hundred times better than the remake (although they both have the same director). I know it sounds...

Intacto [2001] Movie Review Recommendation

Intacto [2001]

After a small break, we are continuing our exploration of Spanish cinema, this time with a thriller that we might label as supernatural, although it seems that it isn't. Is there such a thing as luck, and are...
Pusher [1996] Movie Review Recommendation

Pusher [1996]

Since we were touring Europe for these last few weeks, it's unavoidable to mention this cult trilogy coming to us from Denmark. Pusher is more than just a movie, it's a personal experience about drugs and...
The Impossible [2012] Movie Review Recommendation

The Impossible [2012]

As my memory slowly fades away, only the great movies seem to be the ones I remember from the past few months, and The Impossible is certainly among them. Based on a true story that you know is going to end...

La Caja 507 AKA Box 507 [2002]

Spanish cinematography, my new passion... After a couple of phenomenal thrillers coming to us from Spain, here comes a great thriller. Directed by Enrique Urbizu (No Habrá Paz Para Los Malvados), La Caja 507...
Zero Dark Thirty [2012] Movie Review Recommendation

Zero Dark Thirty [2012]

It would seem that Kathryn Bigelow after her great success with The Hurt Locker gained enough credit to do this little big movie about the hunt for the most wanted man on a planet. I first saw a cable TV...
Stolen [2012] Movie Review Recommendation

Stolen [2012]

Stolen, starring Nicolas Cage, well I guess that's it, I do not need to tell you anything else about this movie. Everything about it is forgettable, and if you watch it high you might not even remember it at...

With the huge success of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and later on Prometheus, Noomi Rapace has become a well established actress, and if you are interested in seeing her in something closer to her home you can...
The Expatriarte [2012] Movie Review Recommendation

The Expatriarte [2012]

The Expatriate is a 2012 thriller starring Aaron Eckhart as an ex-CIA operative now stationed in Belgium. This looked like a sleeper hit that didn't get any recognition, and with that premise I started...
Bait [2012] Movie Review Recommendation

Bait [2012]

Now, I can officially say that I have some sort of shark movie fetish. No matter how low budget, how painfully bad and terrible they are, I have to check them out. I guess it all started with the movie Jaws...
The Raven [2012] Movie Review Recommendation

The Raven [2012]

I was looking forward to this movie. Edgar Allan Poe, Gothic atmosphere, murders, mysteries and relatively good cast, what could go wrong? Luckily for us nothing went wrong, so we got ourselves a good...
Gone [2012] Movie Review Recommendation

Gone [2012]

Here we go again with another mainstream thriller, but it seems that this genre is the most prolific, so there are always some good movies to be picked out. Starring Amanda Seyfried that, at least to me, looks...
