Movie Diary - May 2012
480 7.2 7.31. Fish Tank (2009)
Katie Jarvis and Michael Fassbender played their roles persuasively. Just the final actions of Mia Williams (Jarvis) were a little bit absurd although entertaining, but I have to admit there could have been a better ending.
439 5.8 6.62. Project X (2012)
Teen-Mockumentary with a high end Soundtrack.
You watch the most epic party of a whole generation if you decide to watch this movie. You might think it's just another dumb coming of age Party Movie. One part of it is, but the other part shows you the biggest fun of an enormous crowd with their problems, which do not longer exist for one night. With jelousy you will watch the escalations.
The movie tells you about the feeling of being alive at this one huge party of your life, which otherwise you've dedicated to your job, school, or simply the whish of staying alive. This one party could change everything. Even if you're totally wasted after it, nobody can take away your experiences.
19 3.7 4.23. Gunslinger's Revenge (1998)
I was totally bored by that. It was simply bad, even there's Harvey Keitel and David Bowie in it.
1515 5.3 5.14. The Stepford Wives (2004)
It was nice to bypass a few hours with it and partly funny, also Nicole Kidman was very handsome and beautiful to watch.
964 6.8 6.95. Hanna (2011)
1868 8.3 8.26. My Neighbour Totoro (1988)
A former friend told me this movie was lifechanging for him. The only error was I couldn't watch it with him.
1792 7.8 87. Let the Right One In (2008)
I was disappointed about that film. I had to laugh at so many scenes, I couldn't stay serious. Nobody can seriously tell me that the "in flames" - scene isn't absolutely hilarious. Too bad, it was nothing for me.
2361 8.1 8.18. Howl's Moving Castle (2004)
1382 6.3 6.39. Dark Shadows (2012)
I didn't expect that much from it. I watched it because it's a Burton with Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter in it. So it was good because of them. There were funny parts of course but not so funny that my face hurt from laughing. It was OK.
803 6.9 7.210. The Ides of March (2011)
Oh, I love Ryan Gosling, so maybe I'm a little bit biased when there's a new movie with him. But even apart of Ryan it was exciting and I enjoyed it a lot.
263 7.1 7.411. Pom Poko (1994)
Somehow it was very funny and a little bit absurd, this Anime about the raccoon dogs.
1444 7.2 7.612. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Cowa... (2007)
Great 160 movie-minutes!
First I thought it was Brad Pitt acting the role of Jesse James, but then he was Jesse James.
273 6.4 6.813. Fair Game (2010)
First I was not sure about this movie at all. I wasn't sure about the path of the plot it could take. But it evolved perfectly. I like the combination of Sean Penn and Naomi Watts anyway.
