“The Fault in Our Stars” (2014)

the fault in our starsWhat can I say about this movie?!… Scene to scene the movie just manages to catch me into this beautiful world of Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters. The chemistry between Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elsort is astounding and the performances were astonishing. Honestly, this is the best movie I have seen. I just thought this was going to be another teenie love story but I was wrong. I loved this movie and recommend it to everyone, to people of all ages.
The direction and cinematography was fantastic. Every shot matched the scene and felt real. The acting perhaps was one of the best aspects of this movie. Seriously it makes the two characters feel real and alive. Their performances were so heartfelt and definitely Oscar worthy in my opinion.
The pacing was perfect, the acting was phenomenal, the direction, editing and cinematography was exceptional and overall, this movie is one of the best romantic comedies that have ever touched the face of the earth. I encourage EVERYONE to go see this movie no matter what age you are.

If I Stay (2014):A Moving Film That Makes Me Think About My Own Family and What’s Important!

if i stay  1

«If I stay» is a beautiful, moving film about a teenage girl and the life or death decision she must make. Mia is a teenage girl that has a wonderful family, a boyfriend who loves her very much, and a bright, ambitious future. But, everything changes when she and her family are in a fatal car accident. While Mia is in a coma, her mind comes back to all of her memories, triumphs, heart breaks and future. She has to make the decision just as Shakespeare’s hero to be or not to be, to live or not to live, to die or not to die. Will Mia stay?
I like this movie. It made me laugh, cry and it helped me to see all of the good in my own life that I should cherish, because you never know when it could all change. The cinematography is beautiful. Most of the film is filled with memories that Mia has and the way they are portrayed is very neat. The music is also beautiful. Generally, the film focuses on her dreams of becoming a successful musician, so the film is filled with beautiful classical music.
Mia is played by Chloe Moretz. This film shows so many aspects of Mia’s life, so it’s easy to find something to relate to. She dedicates her life to playing the cello. She has some problems with her parents and even her boyfriend cause their musical interests are different. She has to face her insane loss and she has to choose between many different things in life. There’s something about her life that I think anyone can relate to, so she’s a wonderful character.
This film makes me think about my own family and everything I would do for them. It makes me think of my life and all the joys and sorrows I’ve faced.
I’m sure that you’ll be impressed.

No se Aceptan Devoluciones (Instructions not Included) (2013): Great Movie

instructions_not_includedI haven’t seen anything more interesting than this film. The plot is very curious.  The playboy’s life, who’s from Acapulco, has changed greatly when he finds a baby on his doorstep with a note “She’s your daughter”. He’s very surprised. It takes 6 years for him to find out his daughter’s mother and improve his baby’s life. He seems to travel all over the world while looking for the woman, who has left such a miracle, a little girl. Well… suddenly he meets her and he’s afraid to be apart with his best friend, his daughter.

Of course, it’s much better if you understand Spanish to be able to get a lot of the jokes and sarcasm, etc.

The cinematography was great for the storyline, and it’s almost its own style I think. The colors, the storyline, and everything else just flowed right throughout the movie, and it was definitely a roller coaster of emotions. You will laugh and cry throughout the movie, and it very subtly brings up a few issues we face today with parenthood, the court system in America, the basic needs of children, and the advantages of being wealthy.

Well, it’s not a typical Hollywood movie, that’s why don’t expect it. Feelings you will get from watching it are different from typical Hollywood films.
I strongly recommend you this film for watching.

Under the Skin (2013): The Philosophy of our life

under skin«Under the Skin» is a new picture from Jonathan Glazer, who has also directed Birth with Nicole Kidman and some music videos for bands like Radiohead. The main character, alien Laura, is played by the famous actress Scarlett Johansson.
Firstly, there is no obvious narrative in this film. The narrative simply does not have a big significance or importance here. On the one hand, it is a story of an alien imposing a woman and seducing men from all over Scotland in order to drain their flesh. This is the most simple summary of the movie. On the other hand, it can be seen as  a serious study of our society. The film’s main focus is on the inside and outside of things. It has  the philosophy of form and material. Johansson’s character is struggling in this society. She is always portrayed as going against the stream. Generally speaking, she is lost in the sea of rushing people who do not want to get deeper into things, because they know they could be hurt. This is represented in a very subtle visual way. I believe it is a very important theme for our society where people are afraidof making commitments or engagements, where they seek for quick pleasures, even though they need true and honest love. The film is very strong visually and stylistically, as for me. I liked t.

Sex Tape (2014): … romantic

sex tapeWell, “Sex Tape” is the most curious comedy I’ve ever seen… Can you imagine a married couple who’d like to shoot the film about SEX?! … their sex?! Well, Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) love each other and when they first got together, their romantic connection was intense. However ten years and two kids later, the flame of their love needs a spark. And how do you think what they’ve decided? They decide – why not? – to make a video of themselves trying out every position in The Joy of Sex in one marathon three-hour session. It seems like a great idea – until they discover that their most private video is no longer private…
Of course, the film isn’t for children, because it has lots of sex but it helps to break from the daily routine. The best scene, I think, is when the young daughter Nell (Giselle Eisenberg) makes the observation as she is on her way to school that is “this what life is about?” …
Well, the video was spread among friends and it makes the relations spicy. There are many awkward and uncomfortable moments in the movie and dirty jokes, but it makes you laugh, however.

Begin Again (II) (2013)

Begin Again Intl Poster“Begin Again” opens with a rather banal sounding song being sung by Kiera Knightly in a small nightclub. This is a really good movie about musicians making an album. Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley play a producer and a song writer who team up to make a demo filmed all over the city. The songs are pleasant and the characters are sympathetic and likable even Hailee Steinfeld as Mark’s daughter. There is a nice dynamic between the characters which makes the movie enjoyable to watch. There is almost as much music as a musical but it doesn’t feel much like a musical.

Who knew Keira could sing so well? She doesn’t have the most powerful voice but her singing is musical and right for the type of songs. Mark looks suitably scruffy for the fallen on hard times composer.”Begin Again” is a far better film in its details, largely because Carney lavishes a lot of thought, love and hope on his characters.

Movies like this are pleasant and uplifting to watch – if you want a break from action or violence of summer blockbusters.

WER (2013): Fantastic!!!

I found the trailer on Youtube and was instantly intrigued. I really enjoyed the film. I sure did! And lets see why:
1. good execution. everything went lovely, the suspense grew more and more and I was definitely drawn into it. 2. characters, all worked out nicely, believable. 3. killshots, plenty and good. 4. effects, few at number, but they made them count. 5. scares, one or two, but the usual.

If ”Twilight” saga ruined the horror of werewolf, thanks to “Wer” for successfully bringing werewolf-film back to right track : brutal, terrifying and thrilling. I’m telling you, you will love this movie. The fight scenes are amazing and acting is superb.

Blended (2014): Loved IT!!!

blendedGoing to watch the movie, I predicted that this was going to be another simple Adam Sandler movie where the jokes are OK and there’s really nothing interesting throughout the whole movie. The trailer did not look very convincing.
However, I was very surprised with the beautiful landscapes of the movie, the touching story and the absolute best jokes I’ve ever heard in any Adam Sandler movie.  People argue, that Sandler plays the same role over and over. It can be true, and this movie showed sides of the typical character, but also a new side of him.
The kids were a charm in the movie. They brought so much for watchers.
There are some that just plain hate Adam Sandler and it’s understandable. If you are a fan looking for a serious physiological thriller, then by no means is this your movie. However, if you would like to sit down for two hours and completely enjoy yourself, then this is your movie.
Sandler does a great job and the whole cast works to together brilliantly. The film has my recommendation. The whole movie is great, and suitable for anyone who can laugh and deal with a couple of crude jokes.
