Conviction [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

Conviction [2010]

Although this movie reminds me a bit of some TV flicks that you can see during the weekend, trying to get through your hangover, it's the approach and the general idea that differentiate Conviction from those...
Black Swan [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

Black Swan [2010]

I know, I know, this is the big movie this year, and everyone must have seen it. After so many years Darren Aronofsky finally started getting the recognition that he deserves. But that recognition is gone too...
The King's Speech [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

The King’s Speech [2010]

After many crappy movies that came out lately, The King's Speech really gave me hope that the movie industry can still make movies that are worth watching. First of all, lets look at the crew consisting of...
The Vicious Kind [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

The Vicious Kind [2009]

While it seems like another indie dramedy about a dysfunctional family, The Vicious Kind is an engaging character study with a healthy dose of humor and romance.
Happiness [1998] Movie Review Recommendation

Happiness [1998]

This movie is seriously fucked up. It deals with a lot of subjects that are not talked about in the movies in such a blunt way. Pedophilia, strange sexual urges, alienation, midlife crises, and much more will...
Brothers [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

Brothers [2009]

This war movie seems to be quite popular. With the success of The Hurt Locker, it is not a surprise. This remake of a Danish movie Brødre is a bit different approach to the war stories in modern cinema....
You Don't Know Jack [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

You Don’t Know Jack [2010]

Ahhh the sweet release of death, we are all waiting for it. Some are dreading it, some can't wait for it, but most of us are so caught up in the day-to-day life that we don't even think about it. Our society...
Extraordinary Measures [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

Extraordinary Measures [2010]

When I saw the title of this flick it reminded me of a similar themed movie from 1996, Extreme Measures, but instead of a dumb-ass remake (did anyone said Death At The Funeral), we got a milking drama with...
Ben X [2007] Movie Review Recommendation

Ben X [2007]

Ahhh video games. As an avid gamer who has spent most of his life in front of the computer playing video games, this movie really touched me. I felt exactly like Ben, and in regards with his life and mine,...
Mystic River [2003] Movie Review Recommendation

Mystic River [2003]

Directed by Clint Eastwood (fun fact: he also composed the music) this disturbing drama is packed with excellent actors and magnificent performances. Clint decided to tackle a very serious subject of child...
The Proposition [2005] Movie Review Recommendation

The Proposition [2005]

This Aussie western flick is truly the strange one. First of  all, the script has been written by Nick Cave (the singer, if you do not know who he is you better find out), secondly it has a very...
Papillon [1973] Movie Review Recommendation

Papillon [1973]

Based on true events, this movie is truly something that you must see. It is both riveting and frightening at the same time, using the life of Henry Charriere as a focal lens to highlight our society and the...
Triage [2009] Movie Review Recommendation

Triage [2009]

Based on the novel Triage by American veteran war correspondent Scott Anderson, this movie shows us just how much shit is going on beneath the surface. The ability to deal with sights of sheer terror and death...
Crazy Heart [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

Crazy Heart [2009]

They always get Jeff Bridges to play sinners immersed in their suffering, although he is capable of so much more. Just kidding, the man's got such a career that even if they tried they couldn't pollute his...
Heavenly Creatures [1994] Movie Review Recommendation

Heavenly Creatures [1994]

Coming to us from famous Peter Jackson (Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, Brain Dead, Bad Taste) this touching movie made a big impact when it was released in 1994. Based on true events it depicts the intense...
