Travolta pesadão

Quando me falaram que o protagonista pesava mais de 4 toneladas eu meio que tremeliquei dentro do meu coração, da minha alma. Não sabia que o Travolta taha nesse estado já. Quer dizer, ele fez Hairspray há dois anos atrás, mas aque... read more

"Life is simple now. They just have to do what I say."

The modern Hollywood remake train continues unabated with The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3; flash-over-substance specialist Tony Scott's reimagining of the crackling 1974 suspenser of the same name. In a sense, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 is similar to riding the subway: it moves forward at a decent pace, hitting all anticipated stops ... read more

good but not the original

the original Taking of Pelham ONE TWO THREE starred Walter Mathau (Bad News Bears, Grumpier old men) and Robert shaw(From Russia with Love) in one of his best performances to date. However the original film was racy,funny, and even ironic and yet very truthful to what the viewer was seeing. it also had a very unique cast which included Julius Harris, Jerry Stiller, Martin Balsam, and Hector Elizon... read more

Some Controversial Photos of 2012 (8 movies items)

" R. Umar Abbasi’s photograph has raised an extensive debate on what is ethical to photograph. However, just in the last few days, there have been three incidents of injury or death on the New York subway. Only a horrific photograph like this had attracted so much attention to any particular instance, and hopefully, will make commuters more aware of their surroundings."

A Complete review of Tony Scott's work (17 movies items)

" Cast : Denzel Washington, John Travolta, John Turturro, James Gandolfini What was it about? Armed men hijack a New York City subway train, holding the passengers hostage in return for a ransom, and turning an ordinary day's work for dispatcher Walter Garber into a face-off with the mastermind behind the crime. My two cents: I haven't seen the original version so I can't compare the two movies. There was a lot of talk about how the original version was much better and all but I th"
