Things I watched

Sniper: Special Ops

Year: 
2016
What did I think of it?: 

So what you do do when you're actually to fat and old to be a convincing special ops sniper?

Exactly: you cast the other special ops team members to be even fatter and older. Except for the 'beautiful lady'.

My advice: skip this one.

Genre:

Criminal

Year: 
2016
What did I think of it?: 

What a great movie! It has been a while that I have seen a movie with all ingredients in the right place: plot, action, cast!

The memory of a dead CIA agent is implanted in a criminal on death row, and one hopes that this memory will help to prevent some major catastrophe.

If you like secret agent movies, like I do, you really should see this one.

The Jungle Book

Year: 
2016
What did I think of it?: 

I just saw this movie, and I thought the CGI was magnificent, the voices were cast perfectly, especially Bill Murray as Baloo, but I'm unsure of the movies' audience.

While there are scenes that are way too frightening for children, the movie is too childish for adults, because of the singing. I really liked the original animated movie (the audience was clear back then), and I even like this one, but for me, it could have done without the singing.

10 Cloverfield Lane

Year: 
2016
What did I think of it?: 

I saw this movie with absolute no expectation (except the possible link to the 2008 movie Cloverfield, and the trailers I had seen on television).

I have to say that this movie is absolute the bomb, Goodman is a great actor, and the suspense is being built from the first second, without absolutely no clue what's going on in the outside world, except what Goodman is telling us, from within his shelter. Is it true, or isn't it true?

All that suspense is gone, the moment the woman steps out of that shelter (which is approximately the last 15 minutes of the movie) and breaks it down completely. Without that part, I would given it an 8!

Time Rush

Year: 
2016
What did I think of it?: 

If you like some Parkour and fighting action (like I do), and if you like bad acting (like I don't), and watching the same scenes over and over again (me liking that depends on the other likes), then this movie is for you.

It wasn't mine, though.

Emelie

Year: 
2015
What did I think of it?: 

There are already too many 'bad babysitter' movies, so I didn't think this one would be adding anything new to this genre.

I was right :)

The movie leaves many questions unanswered, so there's probably going to be a sequel. Not for me, however.

Genre:

Backtrack

Year: 
2015
What did I think of it?: 

From the description of this movie I learned that a psychologist talks to dead people... where did I hear that before?

It's completely different, however, and during the movie you'll discover that this man has some unresolved ghosts from the past.

Nice movie, it's a slow movie, but nicely told.

Hidden

Year: 
2015
What did I think of it?: 

This is a story of a family, father, mother and their 7-year old daughter, who live in a bomb shelter for 300 days, where they try to hide (hence the title of the movie) of some unseen enemy, called the 'Breathers'. These breathers apparently try to find (and destroy: our main characters are afraid of them) survivors.

The story is tense, the acting is decent, and there's a twist :)

I liked it a lot.

Kung Fu Panda 3

Year: 
2016
What did I think of it?: 

Just when you think that prequels are a bad thing, and will actually tear down the success of the previous movies, there's Kung Fu Panda 3.

Boy, what a movie. Po is getting stronger and stronger, and so are his opponent. He must fight the supernatural villain Kai, who's eager to take the Chi of all Kung Fu fighters.

Lots of action, and lots of humor.

Must see!
