Hanna

I went to the cinema to see how’s Saoirse Ronan’s carrier is  doing as I saw three movies with her (Atonement, The Lovely Bones and I could Never Be Your Woman). Hanna has good score, good acting, but the whole idea was weird, and not to mention the wacko idea of her magically transporting from Mexico to Germany through some underground tunnel. I loved that deer scene and basically all the scenes in the woods, gotta appreciate that lovely scenery.

I just missed your heart.

Hanna, what did your Mom die of?
Three bullets…

Black Swan

This movie from Darren Arofonsky, Rachel Weisz’s partner and director of the controversial, but beloved by drug and party obsessed teens ‘Requiem for A Dream’ is quite a surprise. I kinda liked Winona Ryder’s performance more that Natalie Portman’s. I loved  I loved the dark elements of the movie, dying for perfection, all the scratches and basically the entire second half of the movie. I love how it all could have been a beautifully tragic metaphor for anorexia and bulimia.

I just want to be perfect.

It’s about a girl who gets turned into a swan and she needs love to break the spell, but her prince falls for the wrong girl, so she kills herself.

Because everything Beth does comes from within. From some dark impulse. I guess that’s what makes her so thrilling to watch. So dangerous. Even perfect at times, but also so damn destructive.

I had the craziest dream last night. I was dancing the white swan.

We all know the story. Virginal girl, pure and sweet, trapped in the body of a swan. She desires freedom but only true love can break the spell. Her wish is nearly granted in the form of a prince, but before he can declare his love her lustful twin, the black swan, tricks and seduces him. Devastated the white swan leaps of a cliff /killing herself and, in death, finds freedom.

Perfection is not just about control. It’s also about letting go. Surprise yourself so you can surprise the audience. Transcendence! Very few have it in them.

I felt it. Perfect. I was perfect.

9/10

Rest stop

It was okay, but then again, I’m still thinking about it, so I cannot say it didn’t leave an impact.

5/10

The Strangers

I have absolutely no idea why so many people are obsessed with it, it was good, but not shockingly special. Sure the idea of strangers in masks breaking in is cool, and It is supposed to be based on true events. Ending was fantastic though. I will buy it on DVD, if I find it cheap.

Why are you doing this to us?
Because you were home.

You’re gonna die.

5/10

Secret Window

You know, the only thing that matters in every single movie is the ending. It’s the most important part of the story. And this one… is perfect.

This is just bad writing.

I’m sure that in time, every bit of her will be gone and her death will be a mystery… even to me.

You strike me as the kind of guy who’s on the lookout for a head he can knock off with a shovel.

I’m gonna get a knife and cut you out of me. Before you kill anyone else.
I didn’t kill anybody.
You had a gun.
Wasn’t loaded.
Really?
No.
You almost killed them. You wanted to.

6/10

The Age of Innocence

I really do think it’s the worst movie of Scorsese’s. I just didn’t like it. Extra point for tiny Winona.

3/10

The Uninvited

The ending was everything here! I was nicely surprised and It was a good movie!

7/10

The Hills Run Red

Liked the idea. Movie itself was fucked up a lot. But was bloody and not bad at all.

6/10.

Valentine

I loved it! Marley Shelton, Jessica Capshaw, David Boreanaz and Katherine Heigl! I really believed the fat girl getting revenge on their friends story. Then It clicked, blood from the nose! And that made this movie even better. The killings were cool and basing this film around Valentines was a good idea. Need to read the book!

6/10

The Mesmerist

I love Edgar Allan Poe and Jessica Capshaw. This story was funny and cool and the ending worked. I liked it more then the book, mainly because the story was missing something. And the film suggested, it was missing… a daughter. But then the ending got incestious real quick.

Now I can smoke as much as I want. I can drink alcohol as much as I want.

Man, do I need a cigarette!

4/10

Alice Sweet Alice

It was so good. Sister burning her own sister. In a Church! During the first communion!

6/10

Pleasantville

I’ve seen it like ten times, and it never gets boring. It’s beautiful! The groundbreaking bathtub scene was a big step in feminism. I mean, she changed black and whiteness of everyday life to color!

8/10

Maniac

Very good portrait of a serial killer.

6/10

Devils Rejects

I love it and I love Rob Zombie, the film is just as fucked up as it should be.

7/10

Night of living dead

I think it’s the worst part, but still very good. Zombie horrors aren’t my favorite type but I still like them!

8/10

Basket case

Okay, I know I should love it, but half of the time I was like, what the fuck is this thing?

3/10

Grindhouse, Planet Terror

I just love it. One of zombie’s movies that are very good.

7/10

Sugar and Spice

This movie is just super cute!

7/10

Melancholia

Good, but not as good as Antichrist.

7/10

Larry Crowne

I took my dad to see it at our local cinema. He loves Tom Hanks. Well, I do too.

5/10

Donnie Darko

Classic.

8/10

Soul Surfer

I have been following AnnaSophia’s career since Because of Winn Dixie. She’s my favorite child actress now. Soul Surfer was painfully real, but made in a too teen’y way.

6/10

Bubble boy

Cute, but messed up. It’s like that other Adam Sandler film, Happy Gilmore. Actually when I think of it, Adam Sandler has a lot of fucked up films.

5/10

Odd girl out

Middle School bullying? I know it too well. Good film.

6/10

Saw 5

Shockingly entertaining and an extra point for Julie Benz.

Minority Report

Cool idea, but nothing special.

Crazy idea, and I loved every minute of it!
