Polish title: Więzień Labiryntu (The Maze Prisoner)


I read the entire Maze Runner trilogy, and since the beginning
of this year I've been waiting for this movie, with the hope that
I will have the opportunity to see it in the cinema. And it worked!
It was my first visit to the cinema this year and I'm really happy
with this screening. I'd be in spite of myself, I gave a lower rating
than 9 stars because I really liked the book and the movie was
really cool. Great role of Dylan O'Brien, very reliable.
I love it and I look forward to the next!

The Colony (2013)
October 14, 2014

Polish title: Kolonia (The Colony)


I thought at the beginning that it would be fairly average movie,
but surprised scenery and idea, I was thinking that I would like it. After the scene on the bridge, I began to wait for something
special, but the entire end ruined everything. Unfortunately.

Polish title: X-Men: Przeszłość, która nadejdzie (Past, Which Will Come)


I don't know, but I think it was probably one of the weakest
part of the X-Men (of course for me). The whole story has introduced some
answers, but also a bit of confusion to what we already know. I liked
a couple of sequences, for example, Erik's rescue action from Pentagon
(Quicksilver was brilliant). I'm disappointed quite bland action
and a little distinctness characters. I didn't feel the tragedy, maybe
a little bit at the end.

Polish title: Świat według Garpa (The World According to Garp)


REWATCH
Robin Williams was one of my favorite actors. I decided to spend some
time with him and watch movies, which I don't remember or haven't seen yet
and remember the ones I really like. So I'll start from the beginning.
I saw this movie a long long time ago, and I definitely don't remember.
It was interesting, sad for fun, like life, the ending definitely blew me up.

Polish title: Moskwa nad rzeką Hudson (Moscow on the Hudson)


This movie was really interesting. Very funny show the culture
and customs and the whole 'American dream' thing. And of course,
Robin Williams was great.

Polish title: Gwiazd naszych wina (The Fault in Our Stars)


Absolutely stunning story. I fell in love at the beginning
and throughout the movie that feeling isn't weakened. Everything was
interesting, story, acting, original dialogues, a pinch of humor
and music that fits brilliantly to the whole. I have to admit that after
'Divergent' I wasn't impressed Shailene Woodley, but here she was amazing.
She perfectly fit for this role. I give nine and totally regret
that I didn't read book earlier.

The Boxtrolls (2014)
October 23, 2014

Polish title: Pudłaki (I have no idea how to translate this one,
something like 'the people of the boxes', but definitely there is no trolls
)


This was the second visit to the cinema this year, and I'm thrilled!
Not only because I love cinema, but also because of the fact that It was
the first time with my little son. Both I and he were delighted, because
this story about a little boy who lives with Boxtrolls was great, moving
and really interesting. And the boy himself (Eggs)... simply charming!

Polish title: Ruchomy zamek Hauru (Howl's Moving Castle )


I don't believe, but I really liked it. It was an interesting fantasy
and moving story. And this castle... insane :D

Draft Day (2014)
October 16, 2014

Polish title: Ostatni gwizdek (Final whistle)


I wasn't sure if I want to watch this movie. Theme of which
I have no idea at all, sports, which I don't really know...
At the beginning it was weird, a lot of talk and more talk, but over time,
each of the talks sucked, and generally I sat and watched,
I pulled out even in shares and all this subject and I'm really glad
that I watched this movie, because there were even some excitement.
And always nice to learn a few new things that didn't know before.

October 01, 2014

Polish title: Witaj w klubie (Welcome To The Club)


It was supposed to be a great beginning of the month,
and unfortunately I'm really disappointed. Didn't move me this story
practically at all. There was nothing especially special for me.
But I have to admit that Matthew McConaughey is getting better and better,
and yeah... the Oscar went definitely in good hands. And I love you
Jared Leto! You look great even in skirt.

Cosmopolis (2012)
October 31, 2014

Polish title: Cosmopolis


It was the best Halloween ever! Why? Because this movie was
really terrible! I haven't much to say: Robert Pattinson in the limo.
I watched because I was curious, I'm curious many things and this
is maybe my problem, by which I often wasting time. Yesterday, soon after
seeing I wanted to write something more, but today, when I slept with it,
I forgot the whole thing at all, so... definitely one star.

Polish title: 72 godziny (72 hours)


It wasn't a super great action movie, but it was a pretty
interesting story. Missing in this picture a lot of things, but overall
I was playing pretty well. But I think all subject old agents who leave
the profession and relationships with their family has been completely
exploited by the cinema. But at least Kevin Costner looked great,
even in this stupid scarf.

Christine (1983)
October 11, 2014

Polish title: Christine


I like to watch the film adaptations of King's books.
I don't read too many of them, maybe because I first saw a large part
of movies when I was younger, and reading books, when the content
is somehow already known isn't exciting and doesn't leave too much
space for my own fantasy. But, considering how much King books was filming,
and how many of them were really unique stories, I believe that
the author's imagination is so huge. In the case of Christine
I'm not disappointed. Very good story. Arnie really freak me out.

Red Dawn (1984)
October 18, 2014

Polish title: Czerwony świt (Red Dawn)


I don't know why, but I liked the remake more. It is possible
that this is due to the duo Hemsworth/Hutcherson, whose I really like now.
Patrick Swayze is ok as well, but I think that his time has passed.
The whole production reminds me so popular now young-adult fiction,
some announcement, youth forced into constant struggle in the face
of a bad future...

The Tenant (1976)
October 08, 2014

Polish title: Lokator (The Tenant)


I haven't seen any of Polanski's earlier works,
so I wanted to check it out. This movie was really weird,
I'm in total don't know what to think, at the beginning I was waiting
for something exciting, later it was tension, but after the screening
I was left with mouth open, but I don't know why. One thing I know
for sure, I'm glad that I don't have neighbors!

Polish title: Bliskie spotkania trzeciego stopnia
(Close Encounters of the Third Kind)


I still don't know, if I believe in life on other planets,
it seems to me that there is, but I've never ran into this UFO stuff.
Yeah, I like to watch movies about it from time to time,
because I'm curious and I often thought, if there is another civilization,
how they look? What are they like? This movie was interesting,
kept in suspense until the end, but the ending disappointed me.
I expected something else.

Polish title: Pan Smith jedzie do Waszyngtonu
(Mr. Smith Goes to Washington)


It was interesting, but it seems to me that it is very unlikely.
The world is so corrupt that I doubt it, that the unit, despite its best efforts,
is unable to change anything.
