When I was 31... movie diary, December 2014

Polish title: Igrzyska Śmierci: Kosogłos część 1 (I will not translate this one)

I'm a big fan of the book, I was driving 300 km specially
to be able to see this movie in the cinema and I'm a little
disappointed. Previous part was brilliant, here... it was a bit boring.
I know that a lot is going to happen in the next part, this here
can be treated as an introduction, prologue. There were some interesting
moments, especially at the end of the film, my favorite - a song
and an attack on a hydroelectric power station, very moving.
Most of the film was rather wordy, with plenty of close-ups
to Jennifer Lawrence, I think it was by far the worst part.

Polish title: Strażnicy Galaktyki (Guardians of the Galaxy)

Green chick, talking raccoon, "I am Groot," and the guy
with no neck... they'd rather not be my favorite heroes. Peter Quill
was pretty cool. The whole wasn't to my taste, the best in the entire
film was definitely the music.

December 11, 2014

Polish title: Niesamowity Spider-Man (The Amazing Spider-Man)

What can I say... when I was younger I really liked
this superhero. He and Superman were the best. Later, in 2002,
Tobey Maguire broke my Spider-Man vision. And additionally
Kirsten Dunst... bleeh. I hated everything related to film adaptations
of Spiderman. So when in 2012, a new version was released,
I had not even want to watch. Today I overcame my hatred
and spent the evening with the new Spider-Man, which was brilliant!
The perfect actor on the perfect place, in my opinion, such should
be Spiderman! And Emma... I love this movie!

December 10, 2014

Polish title: Droga do zapomnienia (The Road to Oblivion)

“At the beginning of time the clock struck one
Then dropped the dew and the clock struck two
From the dew grew a tree and the clock struck three
The tree made a door and the clock struck four
Man came alive and the clock struck five
Count not, waste not the years on the clock
Behold I stand at the door and knock.”

Absolutely beautiful movie. I haven't read the book, so I didn't know
what to expect, I read a lot of opinions that the film doesn't have much
to do with the book, but I like it. Maybe I read a book one day
and I'll check. The whole presented story was very sad and moving,
ending very informative. I don't especially like Colin Firth, but here
he doesn't irritated me so much. Nicole was brilliant as always.

Playback (2012)

Polish title: Playback

I wanted to be afraid, I watched this movie alone
in the dark and... nothing happened! It really sucks :(

Enemy (2013)
December 13, 2014

Polish title: Wróg (Enemy)

I haven't read the book, but I know what was the message
of the book and what exactly it was and I have to admit that
if I didn't know it, from this film I wouldn't know anything.
In addition I don't especially like the images like these, I mean
sad rooms, almost empty streets and everything in shades of
faded yellow.

Hook (1991)
December 17, 2014

Polish title: Hook

It was really cool adventure. I've never been a fan of Peter Pan,
but this version really suit me. I love you Robin!

Polish title: 22 Jump Street

The first part was great, this one - not really.
There were a few moments when I was laughing, but generally
much weaker than the previous one.

Polish title: Tylko Bóg wybacza (Only God Forgives)

Well... I watched this movie for the sake of Ryan Gosling.
I'm not a fan movies like this, in particular, I'm not a fan of this director.
I don't know what I expected, but definitely something less weird...
Meanwhile, I got a story that could be told in half an hour,
if not for the slow scenes that were supposed intention to increase the tension,
and in fact didn't bring anything into action, you could go out,
do yourself a cup of tea and come back and nothing would have lost.
Even Ryan Gosling... I like to look at him, and here... for the most part
of the movie he was sitting with a wooden face, in general there was
no emotion in him, only the scene with the dress... I felt that he's alive
and feels anything. I don't know. It wasn't the movie for me.

Polish title: Uznany za winnego (Found guilty)

Bottom, crap, silt and seaweed. Movie with Morgan Freeman...
almost wasn't his there!!! Terrible narration and generally not that
I was expecting. A moving story enclosed in a shitty packaging. It's good
that the film was short and ended before I had time to really irritate...
