Movie Review : Colombiana (2011)

Posted by Muarif 8:08 PM, under ,, | No comments

When a director of dubs is Megaton, whatever esoteric allusion, and even if it is French, you do not expect subtlety. And subtlety is definitely not what you get with "Colombiana", the gateway slender hyperactive action-thriller/fashion-week with Zoe Saldana as the latest trend in deadly weapons. Saldana is the new Schwarzenegger, only lighter, more dynamic and much better in spandex? I think so.

The B-movie blam blam bloody explosion is the latest reading a book by Luc Besson lovelies bruises that are best not crossed. What began in 1990, "La Femme Nikita," followed by "Leon" in '94, and '97 's "Fifth Element" (the last written by Robert Mark Kamen, who co-wrote "Columbian" with the B-man), he refined in the "Columbian".

Meanwhile, a former graffiti artist Olivier Megaton, which in recent years has been the umbrella Besson directs a train moving very fast in 2008 for "Transporter 3", seems to hit his hand in this last trip to the magazine to spread the 'murder. Saldana is the body that helps the model to focus on and pride, all combining to make a slick, hard work of beauty.

Rango 2011 review - trailer

Posted by Muarif 8:57 AM, under ,, | No comments

In a world choked by animated films - the good, the bad and the ugly - it's hard to be original or great. However, director Gore Verbinski has done so much - and no 3-D - breaking the rules and new horizons in the city of dirt. This bending moment, amazing, Just-Go-with-the fable, the story moves on roads crowded, Hawaiian shirts and the problems of modern cars, leggings and long-term problems of water rights, the land-grabbing and greed. And in a funny actually, everything makes sense.

Had the first signs of the mind that wants to use off the "Mousehunt", the first grid along Verbinski directed. Since the film is a failure, but its string factory, Manse decaying mouse and wrong were oddly fascinating anyway. Things finally materialized in a concepts intelligent, he again guides the seeds up to three first installment of "Pirates of the Caribbean", and he could not do better than Jack Sparrow get to go to a fully animated. Johnny Depp as Rango voice, ready to be enchanted first moments of a terrarium, with Lars, he spends his time reading files Barbie broken and dreaming of a great time.

Crack Screenplay: John Logan ("Gladiator," "Last Samurai"), with "Pirates" creative that connects with Verbinski, a conceptual artist James Ward Byrkit and visual effects wizard Mark "" Crash McCreery. They gave Lars journey of self discovery, self starting the wreck of the road, crossing the Mohave. He drops a pet cuddled a nightmare in the desert, but the freedom to respond to the destiny calls it a town called Dirt, something that looks a lot like "High Plains Drifter", complete with a saloon.

Drive (2011) review - trailer

Posted by Muarif 7:06 PM, under ,, | No comments

Occasionally a film comes out that makes you sit there and wonder, "What I just saw?" Most of the time this problem is unlikely to respond to a supervisor. In the drive, it seems to be exactly what Nicolas Winding Refn want you to ask. 

The first scene shows the driver (Ryan Gosling), giving their only rule of Wheelman, while passengers back to the car in five minutes, he will do anything to escape. Had it not time, however, he left. He then proceeds to put this statement into action as two thieves escape with police. We see a combination of a high-speed chase and a stealth action thriller as police search for the car while the driver narrowly escapes them at every turn. One of the most tense scenes in a movie to date and effectively sets the tone for the rest of the film. Over the next 95 minutes, it will be uncomfortable and on the edge of your seat - but make sure you sit through it and never turn your head.

After returning, we met near the driver, Irene (Carey Mulligan). Her husband is in prison, and she takes care of their son alone. The relationship is between the driver and Irene is sweet, almost innocent, but intensely uncomfortable to watch. You know it's wrong, but want to root for the couple anyway.

Bridesmaids (2011) review - trailer

Posted by Muarif 8:33 PM, under | No comments

If this is just a chick flick, then call me a chicken. Witty, sharp and influence, "Bridesmaids" across borders by blithely ignore them. At one point, it's a farce that examines broad gauge in terms of sex of a woman. (The results are mixed at best.) On another it is a sophisticated comedy of manners and class that two bridesmaids at each other for control of marriage, except the fate of the bride . Through it all, free form interviews, the brilliant set pieces, the gross-out absurd, the flawless performance, Kristen Wiig has left the maid of honor, Annie, seeking its own destiny with a passion wrenchingly squint.

For a woman is a major film award. The script was written by Ms. Wiig and Annie Mumolo-two women are wise in the ways of improvement project and television and performed with extraordinary delicacy by Paul Feig, who created the television series "Freaks and Geeks". As a man, but I would say his biggest difference is its inclusiveness, and I'm not using this term, sticking to your PC. The filmmakers and their producers, Judd Apatow, the comedy show to include all sorts of quirks and qualities that make us human, effusions, numbness, tenderness, eloquent with rage, cold cuts, idiocy, . Their characters can not stop talking. A bad thing? No, a great thing, because this thing is so intelligent. They staged the best road sobriety tests, "the man with two brains," turned romantic items at the best advantage as a "waitress". And the right of the film could not Mr. Odder or right.

Priest (2011) review - trailer

Posted by Muarif 8:07 PM, under ,, | 1 comment

Priest seems to have designs on a couple of spectators who thought irreconcilable young devotees of the vampire genre overserved and older demographic that loves his Christian religious mythology with a healthy side moralized of violence. Each has its greatest hits, and never the twain shall meet with blood. Until now.

Except that, historically, the vampire genre has its roots in the Christian faith. Humans respond to their hobbies of the undead with crosses and holy water, superstitions and lasting (for newspapers) the promise of sunshine. The stakes are ritually driven by the heart. Vampires are not evil because they threaten our lives, but because of its threat to extend indefinitely the Earth - a clear challenge to the law of God and an abomination to those who must die. Based on the hit Korean Hyung-Woo Min manwho and directed by Scott Stewart, the priest offers a world in centuries of war between humans and vampires - a holy war is no different from the Crusades - is over for hosts of kick-ass men (and very radical, at least one woman) of the fabric. As if he could have ended differently.

But what follows - and starts Priest - the kind refracted into something a little more advanced for a time that is much more cynical. These priests heroic fight back with problems, social exclusion and without the use of virtually. Are subjected to menial jobs and years of nightmares. The crosses tattooed on the forehead only aggravate their pariah status. Broodiest of them, known simply as, well, a priest (Paul Bettany), stalks through the limits of the city's cathedral - the wall, a dystopian church and state under the influence of Bishop Orel (a limestone Christopher Plummer) and subjected to prayer wheels and the confession booths equipped with video voice-ID software. His brother (Stephen Moyer), Owen, meanwhile, lives in the desert beyond the city, a barbecue, where the border post-apocalyptic in the opposite direction of life and hope are scarce, but at least the leeches confined to reserves.

A Good Old Fashioned Orgy (2011) review - trailer

Posted by Muarif 7:45 PM, under | No comments

One of the guys in this fast-paced, sexy film that his generation, those in their 30s, compared to what came before and after, more pale."The lamest" If this group who likes to have fun, spend my crutches I want in. While some life-is-party-people across the country, hope they serve beer in hell, the whole band to Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck is "A Good Old Fashioned Orgy" are probably thinking about things cool vodka and tonic when the flames get too close.

Although at peak times, so to speak, like Judd Apatow are the light, the language is happily unkempt As you can imagine, when a group of 30 forty, almost everyone, but everyone thought that their feelings for each other are Platonic plan a wild party Hamptons. Fortunately, Eric (Jason Sudekis), handsome boy is a gang, and the organizer of the party in fact, his father (Don Johnson), owns a sprawling house, which rarely live. The bad news is, however, that the father wants to sell, which would mean that the big Labor Day party-cum (again, so to speak) is the final orgy. Still, Eric is smart enough to find ways to sabotage the sale.

Friends who believe that it is fun to serve the bean dip out of the brown water is my kind of people. If you accept, will be a fan, like me, a huge explosion is smooth and that everyone gets what they want, whether it is a girl who secretly keep a flashlight by Eric, timid, who dreams of doing with a guy and loyal mental health workers must stop intellectualizing the party people who cover their inability to make deep emotional commitment.

The Inbetweeners (2011) review

Posted by Muarif 9:42 AM, under | No comments

 Five years ago, British TV channel for teenagers, E4, launched two new shows. "Skins" was designed to shock the bourgeoisie with their tales of teenage promiscuity and drug use. The cast was full of pretty things to play Bristol wealthy privileged teenagers. However, "The Inbetweeners" was about normal children living in the suburbs boring housing in rural England. Children with parents who stifle, rather than ignore them - children who are struggling to get laid competing gas money, and go on two pints of beer. Children who have cars shit, and girlfriends downloading, and spend their time masturbating and farting.

"The Inbetweeners" was as much about modern life as "Skins" - with all the usual references to video games, text messaging and the interpretation of the use of "smiley face". But so far, "The Inbetweeners" was basically an old man who comes of age comedy, with four players worry endearing things all concerned about this age, no matter what decade we have grown in the premise of the base has a wide appeal was broad demographic "Skins". He showed us that we were really more than I would have liked to have been. And the icing on the cake was crisp, funny dialogue writers Damon Beesley bite and Iain Morris (the man behind "Peep Show"). Not to mention the courageous attitude of the young actors to humble themselves in public. To give some examples ....

The Beaver (2011) review

Posted by Muarif 11:51 AM, under | No comments

Bizarre and belabored, but grimly fascinating, "The Beaver" opens in Mel Gibson's painful when you are looking for times, which sounds a bit 'like Michael Caine says: "This is a picture of Walter Black, a hopelessly depressed individual". It does not seem promising, but the film, which was directed by Jodie Foster, has more than it promises, ie performance that draws its exceptional know-how and irresistibly what it takes to be a real movie star whose life anxiety private has become a ruin.

The narrator, as it evolves, is Walter himself, toothsome and rodents of the title is a puppet he wears on his left hand. With Beavers Walter suddenly and almost exclusively, begins to speak in an English accent to his wife worried, Meredith (played by Ms. Foster), his son terrified teenage Porter (Anton Yelchin) and his colleagues start to work. I'm not telling you something you can not find the trailer, and it is part of the problem with Kyle Killen scenario. It is a drama that does not depend solely on one device, a knack for being a puppet of the author, but deprives us of any sense of discovery by specifying the device sense a short film that gives Walter everyone he meets: "The person who handed you this is under the care of a prescription puppet designed to create a psychological distance between himself and the destructive aspects of his personality."

Posted by Muarif 1:05 PM, under , | No comments

There is something endearing old-a story of love between a great driver and a child who runs away to join the circus. What is "Water for Elephants" most intriguing is a third person, reminds us why Christoph Waltz won the Oscar for best supporting actor for "Inglourious Basterds" (2009).

Midnight in Paris (2011) review - trailer

Posted by Muarif 11:25 AM, under ,, | No comments

Was there ever really a golden age? And if so, did they know then? If people can recognize a golden age when they are in? For Woody Allen, whose musical tastes and cultural run for the years 1920 and 30, these questions probably fueled countless daydreams. And now, out of all this thinking is "Midnight in Paris", a film that is in love and melancholy, and often hysterically funny.

Romance is integrated into the design. A writer who has always been nostalgic, today visits to Paris and falls through a wave in time: In a Paris street, a clock strikes midnight and a taxi up to 1920 discs. F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald are in, and take him to a party. Although at first the writer thinks that these are false Fitzgerald and is a costume party, he soon realizes that this is the real deal. Surrounded by music and styles you like and mingled with their idols and heroes of art.

Our hero of the film retains the break as easily as it should be. Meeting celebrities can be quite difficult, but compliance with the legends of the past - the eagerness to please is overwhelming. But there is always a touch of bitterness, too, because you look 20 years through the eyes of a modern person who is a world that is by definition the past. The past is always romantic, because he's gone, just like the future is always scary because you're away.

The Skin I Live In (2011) review - trailer

Posted by Muarif 11:09 AM, under | No comments

"The Skin I Live In" is, like most films of Spanish director of a film that can not be announced or explained in a few sentences. I remember her excellent work in "Talk to Her" and "All About My Mother." "Talk to Her" was a love story between a woman in a coma, and her rapist, while the mother was a film about a nun with AIDS, a transvestite with a heart of gold and a woman looking for the heart of his son. In one of the films of Almodovar phrase all sounds twisted at best. But in the hands of a master, they are beautiful works of art. Ditto for "The Skin I live In." In one sentence (like so many others who have not seen the film are quick to point out), the movie seems scary at best and deal with a plot that makes the more unpleasant.

Attack the Block (2011) review - trailer

Posted by Muarif 10:53 AM, under ,, | No comments

In " Attack the Block," the feature writing and directing the first British comedian Joe Cornish, an alien invasion occurs in a public housing complex in London, and only a group of teenagers seem to realize.

Pulse with a bustling energy, the film works both as a fiction horror sci-adolescent adventure film. The biggest trick is withdrawn from Cornwall opens the film with his players attacking a woman (Jodie Whittaker) and still somehow make them appear as the story unfolds, deserves to be known (and rising brutality never excuse).

Circumstances may force the victim of aggression to join forces with them, and their transition from villain to hero in terms of public sympathy is simply excellent, especially for the leader of the gang, Moses (John Boyega).

Cornish approaching history with either condescension or nostalgia. The film clearly references monster movies of the 80s-era as "The Thing" and "Gremlins" in its visual style, but rather than go to some vague "makes me feel like I'm 12 years old still "feel that is popular with the crowd Comic-Con, Cornish create something that feels fresh, new and now. One of the big laugh lines of the film comes in the middle of a race that one of the boys exclaimed, "This is madness too much to explain in a text"

Source Code (2011) review - trailer

Posted by Muarif 10:35 AM, under , | No comments

A man wakes up on a train and have no idea how it got there. But the woman sitting opposite him know who he is and beats a conversation. She calls him by name - but not his name. And when he goes into the bathroom to detect faces in the mirror is not hers.
It's exciting to open "source code", a thriller that takes a premise of science fiction and not use it for the sake of flashy effects, but as a gate in the human soul. The story is simple, but the goal to feel about a man trying to identify who committed a mass murder - to prevent an even greater catastrophe.
Five minutes, the film includes everything for us: a commuter train is not really true. Earlier in the day, was destroyed in a terrorist attack. What we are seeing, but it is a kind of echo of memory. In the world of "source" science is able, for a while ', the opportunity to benefit victims of conscience' in order to re-create the last eight minutes of their lives - and collectively, to recreate everything you can do, that the train.
Just that concept in itself has power. One thing is seeing people on a train. But seeing these people and I know you see the last minutes of his life, everything they do makes sense and intensity. Moreover, knowing that what is not even real, it is not time travel, but only the waves of memory, creates a favorable awareness of the simplicity of human desire.
This is the "source code" for him before something happens, even. This is before the box was filled with a good story, a tense action, issues and programs to play great and deep.

The Lincoln Lawyer (2011) review - trailer

Posted by Muarif 9:50 PM, under ,, | No comments

Matthew McConaughey plays a slick Los Angeles criminal defense attorney in the film adaptation of Michael Connelly legal thriller The Lincoln Lawyer. The public is likely to have a clear recollection of the star as a lawyer sweating Mississippi 15 years ago in the film adaptation of John Grisham legal thriller, A Time to Kill. These customers will be pleased to know that the man still looks great support in court, still offers his lines with an accent of the variable, with barbeque for dinner. This time, McConaughey is Mick Haller, who is familiar to fans of detective fiction bestseller Connelly's half-brother of the LAPD Harry Bosch. Haller beaten unorthodox: Sa''bureau''est the backseat of his chauffeur Lincoln Continental, and customers tend to be colored on the underside of the bridge type of character that actors love.

Fright Night (2011) review - trailer

Posted by Muarif 6:02 AM, under , | No comments

"Fright Night" benefit from an ideal location in Las Vegas, the night city. And 'suburban residential insulation disturbing. Seen from the air is several square blocks of houses and roads completely surrounded by arid desert. Customers who bought his first house here was an optimist.

Maybe it was Jerry (Colin Farrell). It is a simple man, handsome and charming, who lives next to the Brewsters. Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin) is a teen with little expertise on the usual vampires, so it is sensitive to vibrations of some of the neighbor. His divorced mother, Jane (Toni Collette), picks up the most room testosterone. They both wonder why Jerry is an unsightly dump in his front yard, and where all those clods come. The exterior of the house remains unchanged.

To be sure, all the windows blacked out Jerry, but we are told is not uncommon in Las Vegas, where so many people working in night shifts and sleep all day. Seems reasonable. Both houses are close together (especially in view of miles of empty desert around the development), and Charley find it easy to monitor the suspicious movements of Jerry's window second floor room. Charley friend Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) communications that the student has been missing in their class, and begin to suspect that Jerry may be a vampire.

Conan the Barbarian (2011) review - trailer

Posted by Muarif 5:48 AM, under ,, | No comments

Composed entirely of massive, bloody set pieces, Conan the Barbarian is proof that the effort fans should be careful what they wish. Designed from the remains of what someone might think they want a film to look like Conan, but without any thought given to the characterization, plot or coherent staging and director Marcus Nispel a reimagining of the icon cartoon, with a few exceptions, a complete disappointment. Between Conan and Fright Night is a great boy battle at the box office for a draw gives Spy Kids 4 to steal the first place.

Conan is a Cimmerian warrior who is literally born on the battlefield. (14 years old Leo Howard plays him as a boy.) A natural fighter, he develops a sense of strategy and brutality at an early age. But when his father (Ron Perlman) Corin is killed before the eyes of incubation of the child, Conan dedicates his power to avenge the ruthless warlord Khalar Zym (Stephen Lang), which decimated his people and his life left in the ruins.

Fast Five (2011) review - trailer

Posted by Muarif 7:39 AM, under ,, | 1 comment

Ten years and a number of innings later, "Fast Five" is the first result of 2001 "The Fast and the Furious," which is worth seeing, not an embarrassment or a parody of the original image.

Director Justin Lin, who directed the previous two sequels, is not that director Rob Cohen ("The Fast and the Furious") is, and still do not really know what to do with Vin Diesel. This is an action star in the mythic dimension, an actor who can take an audience anywhere, and half the time allowing Lin looks like any other good, middle-aged, bald.

But at least this time, We are looking for things. He found, for example, that it is always wise to give the last word on diesel fuel each scene to shoot him in the foreground, the soundtrack is a lot of support, even if his line is something like "We need to get fresh air." It does not matter. Diesel growling and words suggestive of his bass voice, what he says seems to me particularly important.

Senna (2010) review - trailer

Posted by Muarif 7:05 AM, under | No comments

"Senna" is a documentary with the pace of a thriller, a tale of motors and machinery is more than convinced by the intensely human story that counts.

Brazilian Ayrton Senna was the little genius Formula One Racing, winner of three world championships before dying in an accident in 1994 at the age of 34, a former Formula One driver runners recently voted the greatest ever lived.

But if everyone could do was Senna's race, it would be a great story. Although he could drive like the devil, Senna was a deeply spiritual person who believes and a higher power. A mystical philosophy with the nerves of a jewel thief and the sensitivity of a poet, not to mention the killer looks good, Senna was a truly extraordinary individual. And. Deeply contradictory

On the one hand, Senna is a sensitive man, who wore his heart hinged on his race run, one of your own heart can not help out so that it tries to maintain a sense of decency and dignity in the cup throat area. But Senna was also the toughest competitor you can imagine a person who lived to win and never hesitated to push the car beyond their designed capacities. Triumphed in Formula One, he told an interviewer, is "something so strong, like a drug. Once you experience it, you search for it all the time."

The Hangover Part II (2011) review

Posted by Muarif 6:12 AM, under | No comments

The crew even ruin is in place with the main culprits - Phil (Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Alan (Zach Galifianakis) - the pressure of another drug and alcohol induced failure with a new missing person, a old nemesis resurfacing and another marriage in jeopardy. Justin Bartha is Doug, who had lost her husband last time shows shortly thereafter remain in the pool while his friends go wild and crazy in Bangkok.

Todd Phillips, who led the first and has a script full of other crazy comedy, "Old School" and "Due Date", including another player in return. It keeps churning chaos, squeezing the fun of what it can offer and awfully funny moments you may feel the need to apologize for laughing at the latest. Phillips has worked with Craig Mazin ("Scary Movie 3 and 4" and up) and Scot Armstrong ("Old School" and others) to write the last cycle of abuse. However, this scenario is much less original than the original written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, even though the two plots are so closely related that if you do not see for the first time, you will not get half the jokes in the sequel .

Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011) review

Posted by Muarif 5:05 PM, under ,, | No comments

"Kung Fu Panda 2" is exactly as you expect and more. The animation is superb, the story is much more than the original, and boundless energy. I enjoyed as fully as I could, given the horror of his 3-D. The original film, 2-D wide screen was great. But never mind. Hollywood has brainwashed us (or themselves) to the 3-D is an improvement and not a nuisance.

What is the best, this extension is that duty is not a coating of the original, but an ambitious expansion. Among the many new elements, not least is the solution to the mystery of how Mr. Ping, a goose, could be the biological father of the Po, the panda. In the original film, as I can remember, each character represents a different species, so I thought maybe unexplored reproductive processes used. But no, Po paternity is explained here, and has a lot to do new development in the kingdom.

Thor (2011) review

Posted by Muarif 4:28 PM, under ,, | No comments

It takes a director known for his sense of Shakespeare to an action movie spectacular summer filled with epic battles and struggles family.

According to Kenneth Branagh management, Thor has spectacular special effects, sound and performance, perhaps the most remarkable 3-D technology to good use. Although the plot has some holes, the dazzling appearance of the film, the action sequences rattling land bridge these gaps.

Based on the Marvel superhero comic book origins of Norse mythology, the God of Thunder to free jokes funny enough to make the whole enterprise more enjoyable.

Not only is it great to watch - thanks to CGI spectacular cast and production designer Bo Welch regular work - is anchored in a performance attractive, Chris Hemsworth. Although it seems every inch heavy Norse god, Hemsworth is not just a piece. His charisma and a charming smile go a long way toward engaging to do Thor.

Jane (Natalie Portman), Erik (Stellan Skarsgard) and Darcy (Kat Dennings) is a trio of contemporary scholars, as is done in a disoriented Thor, which crashed in the desert of New Mexico.

The Adjustment Bureau (2011) review

Posted by Muarif 2:25 PM, under ,, | No comments

The Adjustment Bureau2Here we go again. I will be unable to stop myself. "The Adjustment Bureau" is a contradiction of free will and predestination, and there you have the dilemma of a lifetime, is not it? Or will the difference between what you want to do, or the book was already written, and all you can do is turn the pages.

That these issues are raised in a sci-fi thriller with a love story at its core should not be surprising. Sci-Fi offers storytellers the freedom to tinker with realism, and few writers have done with more complexity than Philip K. Dick. The film is written and directed by George Nolfi is based on a Dick story about a legion of "setting" that moves a strange thing and something known here, just to make sure everything goes according to plan. If the plan? Experts are not big on explanations. They are like secret agents of the rising power of your choice.

But the best laid plans of mice and men sometimes go astray. Chance barges, and the interference must be corrected. In "The Adjustment Bureau", Matt Damon plays a congressional candidate, David Morris, who enters the room of one of the men he has every reason to believe that it is empty, and must come from a stands, but Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt). What was she doing there? You do not need to cons-examine a Meet Cute. Above all, these two people who were never to meet that special chemistry which means they are a perfect match romantic. They know what we know, and when their eyes and their lips met, their stories intertwine.

If James Franco looked dazed and confused host the Academy Awards this year, it could have been just an overview of the stoner comedy.

But to see him cut his arm as he did in 127 hours, is preferable to sitting through this raunchfest wrong.

127 hours, which presents a considerable talents of Franco and resulted in an Oscar nomination for Best Actor, His Highness seems like a waste of time awesome actor.

Not that everything he does has to be Oscar-caliber. It was very funny that the weed whacker is often wasted in the Pineapple Express 2008. But this movie is so immature, you Pineapple Express, and even Harold and Kumar, sophisticated mind.

Bad Teacher (2011) review

Posted by Muarif 7:17 PM, under | No comments

After the advertising campaign of a gravel look very effective, one could be forgiven for thinking that the ''bad'' in "Bad Teacher" refers to a public-school educator who fools around with her students. Many teens may be open on weekends in the hope of seeing Cameron Diaz to power his hot teacher fantasy. But - sorry, guys! - Not that the film is about. Make no mistake: Diaz Elizabeth Halsey is bad - it's an intriguing cored, very selfish and manipulative. The only reason is a professor at John Adams Middle School because her boyfriend left him for being a gold digger, and she has to sustain itself. Its sole purpose in life is the land of 10 000 dollars for breast augmentation surgery.

To spend the day, she babysit his students of the seventh teacher showing movies like Stand and Deliver, she smokes marijuana and lies through her lips more red, it is racist insults (''That's why the Japanese is exceeded! os''hun exclaimed, reading the newspapers of his students) and she flirts like a paid escort with sexy-nerd substitute Mr. Delacorte (Justin Timberlake) - but only because he is the heir custody of a fortune of the company. The joke's basic bad teacher, as director Jake Kasdan hits again and again is that Elizabeth is the character most dislike of the year. Diaz, up in the fat, is definitely the persuading strident angry, but there is not much spark in his performance, and there is so little bounce - or real shock - for the film overly controlled how we be rude! dark comedy that the audience is left stranded. We are not next to Elizabeth, or anyone else, really.

Posted by Muarif 6:49 PM, under ,, | No comments

Nick (Jesse Eisenberg, type cast as the troubled white guy) hates her job of driving like a maniac when it tries to deliver pizzas in an incredibly tight "30 minutes or less" time. It does not get much sympathy by the best friend Chet (Aziz Ansari), who seems to understand that Nick is the loser lifestyle makes his own modest results look up in comparison. Amigos go as they have little in common except that the best years of their lives behind them and the next 24 hours is to get a lot worse.

Around the city, just bad friends of Dwayne (Danny McBride) and Travis (Nick Swardson) hatched a comprehensive scheme which involves the removal of a pizza boy strapping an explosive vest to his chest and ordered him to stealing $ 100 000. Not since "Fargo" has a plan to get rich quick spiral so disastrously out of control so quickly, but only to the difference in this film (with its false "true story" claims) "minor" was clearly inspired stranger than the fictional case of Brian Wells, who tried to rob a bank while wearing a collar bomb (and died after explosive devices).

Griff the Invisible (2010) review

Posted by Muarif 5:50 PM, under ,, | No comments

A man is another man's eccentric maniac, "Griff the Invisible" explores how these differing perceptions that promote the human condition. The film has a heart, and whimsy (rare in Australian cinema), with a playful tone that does not try to convince us through the natural open we see in real life. And 'some' as a symbol, he said with irony. You buy it or not. I buy.

Griff (Kwanten) is the day in the office, where the goal is a timid office bully fun. But at night, is in its super-suburban belt, suitably equipped with a superhero wardrobe and ready to fight the dark forces road.

Increasingly concerned about the eccentric behavior Griff, his brother, Tim (Patrick Brammall) tries to convince him not to ... Well, as normal as everyone else. But when the new date soon Tim, Melody (Dermody) meets Griff, he is immediately fascinated by the idiosyncrasies Griff. A man after my heart just vicious, Melody starts fall to Griff.

This is good news if you are a member of the nation Gleek.

Another issue is if you do not know who is singing. Or what inspired the songs. Or how the program has become the emblem of marginalized youth. Not much to ask - even Justin Bieber Never say never touched the boy's debut YouTube.

Moving human story full of humor and heartbreak is rare in any movie season, especially during the summer. This makes an inspiring gift of help. It could have been a disaster. Debut novel by Kathryn Stockett has irritated some critics. Stockett poison, a white woman in Jackson, Mississippi, thinking he could get into the head of the black waiter to serve the white population in the course of 1960 in advance.

Judge, "X-Men: First Class" is not the color of the mutants', but its sign content.

In the long-awaited prequel to the film adaptation of Matthew Vaughn of the iconic Stan Lee comics, although the foreign genetic outliers to disarm future human weaknesses, quirks and admirable qualities. Charles Xavier, whose graceful personality was channeled by Father Patrick Stewart in the previous "X-Men" movies, seems to have been a bit of Lothar Carnaby Street back in the Swingin 'London of the 1960s.

"Green Lantern" is both on the wall and out of this world - literally. More space opera sci-fi epic hero, it works in fits and starts, as its various parts in and out of efficiency, but professionalism in the production, it is watchable in a sort of cartoon of the way .

Wacky premise of the film comes from the resumption of the 1959 book on the book that launched the idea of ​​a huge legion of intergalactic powerful green lanterns, each with his lantern very clean - the lava lamp of high quality - and each one be the protector of a corner of the universe.

Death can not be mistaken, as so miraculous escape after eight people in a disaster suspension bridge ... things start to happen. These things happen? Oh, they are bad, but not just bad. They are complete and destruction, disturbing and very funny, if the public ends up laughing, crying and gasping at the same time. It's a healthy fear ridicule people do and you will make about 10 ten times even if you're going to see "Final Destination 5."

What else can I say? Wait, let me see my notes. "Great when the car lands on her head." In fact, yes, it was one of many highlights when the car lands on the head of a woman. Not good for the car, not a good woman, do not try this at home.

Blitz (2011) review

Posted by Muarif 12:05 PM, under , | No comments

The omens are not good. A Starr Jason Statham Blitz right do not expect another of his full of explosives, the concept down, punch-up flicks interrupted by a gross story from the man himself. But these expectations are confused by the real device - a film that veers between crime exciting and fun with narrative echoes of the cracker and top television series of tonal nuances jaded one-liners that kept up to Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

Complete the rude behavior Statham places, and so far, too little comic timing and un-PC Detective Brant in this adaptation of Ken Bruen's novel is. First I meet him in the opening scene, born of his booze soaked win a bunch of wannabe theft. Brant guarded by a muscular character will soon be vacated at the COP-killer, played with superb animal strength Aidan Gillen, who copied it, "Blitz", and the tips dodgy tabloid trick Dunlop Harold (David Morrissey) of its intentions. Brant initially uneasy union of gay police chief Porter Nash - plays an understated but impressive Paddy Considine - to continue the murderess before it can cause more damage to the force. A rare film actor Mark Rylance alternately hailed as a leader Brant, mourning is the icing on the cake.

Asghar Farhadi’s A Separation is one of the finest Iranian dramas of all time. On the surface appears to be little more than a domestic drama, but the range of the complex reflected in his narrative increasingly detailed over time. Farhadi film is a detailed portrait of tortured humanistic religious beliefs, moral debts and irreducible blood ties.

The film begins with the breakdown of the marriage of Nader (Peyman Moaadi) and Simin (Leila Hatami). She is desperate to flee their homeland for a new beginning with her daughter. However, it is determined to remain the responsibility he feels for his Alzheimer affected parent is unable to care for himself.

Posted by Muarif 5:25 PM, under , | No comments

"Rise of the Planet of the Apes" is the correct one. Smart, funny and very nice, and a different model for summer entertaining without offending your intelligence. Skillfully blending the latest technology in an old story elements, is also the origin of the story, which answers the question, which was suspended in the air since 1968: how it was that regulates the monkeys?

That year, starring Charlton Heston, "Planet of the Apes" (based on the novel by Pierre Boulle), postulated a world in which the monkeys were responsible and the people were in cages. The film was popular enough to spawn four follow-ups, and directed by Tim Burton's remake, but this latest project, which reveals how it all started to go wrong for us and good for them, things will take a whole new level different.

Neil Patrick Harris smurf accounts like everyone else. Or maybe you have to pay the Smurfs.

Who Knows? At the end of the inevitable "The Smurfs" movie, when the linguistic oddities in the little blue sprite a level similar to Yoda inconsistency.

But once you are trying to combine the Smurfs, there is a better film than anyone could have anticipated, largely due to an honest effort to Harris in a thankless role.

For those who have seen the ads, even passable on the big screen "The Smurfs" seems like a miracle, trailer makes it look like a long coil of torture and sexual innuendo little blue Smurfs. However, it is the rare film in the worst parts are in promotions. Parents who drew the short straw will be happy to know that the film is not a god awful. It is refreshing poor.

As an exercise in chocolate-in-my-peanut butter mash-ups, the concept of the struggle against foreign Cowboys joined the cars that transform into robots and snakes on the plane or not the best idea lo- bad-is-good kitsch.

"Cowboys & Aliens," an inspired adaptation of Jon Favreau's comic book of the same name, Reese could learn a few things about how you do it right. A return of love for the classic Western and science fiction, rails, this celebration of two of the most admired kind of film does not spare the squandering of their most cherished conventions impartial love and respect. Whether the solitary horseback in a desert, a dusty town or E.T is squishier, scary brother down a giant spaceship, "Cowboys & Aliens" are both natives quite right.

The change-up opens with a scene from the quake in the induction of Jason Bateman as a tormented father, receives a mouthful of shit changed a baby. After the diaper change, the film has nowhere to go but up.

Bateman's earlier summer comedy, Horrible Bosses, was more consistently funny, though he and Ryan Reynolds have a chemistry here that grows more pronounced as the movie progresses. Unfortunately, the gags quite pronounced, too.

Dave (Bateman) and Mitch (Reynolds) grew up together, but they took different paths. Dave is a workaholic lawyer with a prestigious law firm, and Mitch is a bad actor / pothead slacker. David is married to Jamie (Leslie Mann) and father of three children, Mitch is a teenager who invaded.

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) review

Posted by Muarif 9:00 PM, under ,, | No comments

Nobody makes a hero more sympathetic than a paltry 98 pounds. If intimidated, orphans and people with asthma - if beaten by shaking in the streets on a regular basis - why, very well. Behind the concave chest beats the heart of a lion.

Meet Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), stick figure, which will eliminate the war-time Nazi hunter sturdy frame "Captain America: The First Avenger:" Last summer, a long line of this film very muscular hero. What distinguishes the cap to his story of humble origins, which belongs neither gods nor hairy hot-dogging test pilots, but a Brooklyn boy who just wants to fight for freedom.

Steve has tried five times to enlist but was rejected each time. Then he called the attention of Dr. Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci). Erskine is a sweet German scientist, now working for the Americans, with a new super serum that can turn a weakling like Steve in a super-fast, super strong super-soldier. And that created Captain America. Having been abused by the government to sell war bonds and the star in the film of few words, go to the Cape nasty fight this particular film: Johann Schmidt (Hugo Weaving), a Nazi madman controlling a source of blue is terrifying power of the Norse Gods.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011) review

Posted by Muarif 8:46 PM, under , | No comments

After seven previous films dating back a decade, the Harry Potter arrives at a strong and successful "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Part 2" The end evokes the solemnity and fear enough to address a adequate and a final dramatic contrast to the luminosity (relative) innocence of "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" magic many years ago.

Harry, Hermione and Ron are grown now, and Harry even more facial stubble requires all epic heroes. The time has come for him to face Lord Voldemort in the final confrontation, and conflict is in a range of special effects sequences with power and conviction. I'm still not sure what pins high for wands which consist of, but never mind. They look nasty and deadly.

Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011) review

Posted by Muarif 8:32 PM, under , | No comments

For an actor who tends to wrap lines in irony well cut, and from certain angles looks like Rowan Atkinson beautiful brother, Steve Carell an unexpected gift to play the honest men who just got hope from right under them. In the opening scene of the Crazy, Stupid, Love, professor of Cal Weaver (Carell), a fairly typical suburban Nice-Guy, dressed in wrinkled Dockers and sneakers worn, his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore) had an affair and plans to divorce. There was a time long ago when movies like Kramer against Kramer (1979) dealt head-on pain of broken marriages, and even crazy, stupid, love is nothing more (or less) light comedy that confusion charming and romantic it deep bone pain that led these films. It's a film that includes love, because he understands the pain.

Friends with Benefits (2011) review

Posted by Muarif 8:13 PM, under | No comments

Last 45 years we have seen the gradual deterioration of traditional morality, in all the traditional rules of love and sex. At the same time, the demands of a romantic comedy has remained the same - to reinforce the love, so it's fun and keeps the public to believe. So, what if you want to do a romantic comedy now?

One way, the wrong way is to deny the obvious and obscure the truth, to rely on the Convention and to skate on the charm of two stars. This, fortunately, is exactly what "friends with benefits" does not work. Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis has charm to spare, but the film did not abuse its assets. Instead of giving them an honest history of working with, which recognizes that adults only challenge is the same as the challenge of romantic comedy - to get to love in a world without rules. In a jungle.

Posted by Muarif 10:48 AM, under | No comments

There are few pleasures better suited to comedy middle of the film to see normal people supposed to behave terribly. And if they violate the characters are played by popular film stars, great. Everything is a bit cheeky little nicer, for example, Billy Bob Thornton in the title role in Bad Santa. For this gentle comedy sourball list, we can now add Horrible Bosses, a bouncy, well built, nice ugly tale of anger, despair and vengeance amoral for employer-employee relationship, as Danny DeVito and Bette Midler made for marriage in 1986 of a great comedy of the brothers Zucker ruthless people.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) reviews

Posted by Muarif 3:08 PM, under | No comments

Gardening has expressed dissatisfaction with the year 2009 was a huge success, but often maligned "Revenge of the Fallen," the mass demolition, Maestro Bay has made dramatic improvements in this third entry in the series adapted live-action popular Hasbro toy and cartoon. Written by "Fallen" alum Ehren Kruger, "Dark of the Moon" boasts of a story more coherent, more varied pace and fresh as a target object in terms of model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley UK, entering the fleshy as Megan Fox.

Specifically, to maximize the benefits of stereoscopy, Bay seems to have put a value slightly higher than visual coherence, taking more time than usual, indicating a greater continuity in the publication, which allows the viewer to enjoy the cars' in attractive 3D transformations improved idle, including enough wide shots to allow more generous, less claustrophobic view of the action. The result can be a great show inflated, but it's a great show you can still swollen.

After a prologue recapping the civil war that destroyed home planet of the Transformers', Cybertron, the film starts to run suddenly stirring close the American space program during the century 60 (cumulative discoveries and a brief re-enactments of processed grainy retro look ). In the short term, the image rotates a fascinating counter-narrative of the 1969 moon landing, by postulating a top-secret NASA mission to examine the remains of Sentinel Prime, the Autobot leader Optimus Prime and his father (voiced again by the gravel, Peter Cullen) something.

Meanwhile, signs of renewed activity between the evil Decepticons are just the thing to attract young Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf, more than ever bent) again into battle. Currently unemployed, Washington, DC, living with Carly hot gf (Huntington-Whiteley), and temporarily abandoned by Bumblebee, who is out exciting missions Autobots, Sam leaps into the fray and soon heads back with the national intelligence director Mearing Charlotte (Frances McDormand, bringing his usual no-bull attitude in the process). Mearing head butts in the round with Optimus Prime, Sentinel wants to revive the first of his dream before.

Bad idea, as it turns out, paving the way for what looks like a defeat for the Autobots. PIC sobering moment is interrupted before the apocalyptic fear looms just ahead on the dirt strips cut LaBeouf stained cheek, before turning his attention to Chicago, where the Decepticons, no doubt heard, tax relief over the city, they established a fortress .
