The Town (2010)
Directed by Ben Affleck



As he plans his next job, a longtime thief tries to balance his feelings for a bank manager connected to one of his earlier heists, as well as the FBI agent looking to bring him and his crew down.


Usually I like robbery stuff, but this movie is too long and too much parts are unnecessary. However, action scenes are well done.

This one is different from the others. It shows that nice and careful human beings are in this world too and we surprisingly love each of them. I had a lot of feels during the movie, from worst to best.

Iron Man 3 (2013)

Directed by Ruben Fleischer

Jumper (2008)
Directed by Doug Liman

I have to admit I liked Griffin much more than Race, mainly because Race is really stupid. The plot should be about the self-centred him & his girlfriend, not about Jumpers & Paladins.

The last one. The Battle of Hogwarts gave me a lot of feels, but I really wanted to see the other characters more, not only the 3 friends. The way Severus died was shocking for me: the blood, the sound of his body against the window. Nothing to do with the others who died under a spell.

Sadly I didn't found the time to do it. I'll add only the good ones for the last months.
