Dream House (2011)
September 01, 2014

Polish title: Dom snów (House Of Dreams)


I'm tempted to excellent cast, but I'm very disappointed.
For a moment I was intrigued, then a shocking discovery regarding
the main character, later a long long time nothing until the conclusion,
which was probably the weakest point of this film. I think that
the story was poor, cast great, so all in all I rate whole quite average.
For sure this movie will remain in my mind for a few days,
when I again was afraid to go down to the basement... Damn!

Red Lights (2012)
September 08, 2014

Polish title: Red Lights


The third movie with Robert De Niro in this month...
This is a total coincidence! At the beginning I was thrilled,
the whole really kept in suspense, Sigourney Weaver was great,
then the whole bit slowed down, but I'm still waiting what will happen.
Twist at the end was complete failure for me. I really preferred
to believe that all this is complete nonsense. End could be good,
and it was weak.

September 29, 2014

Polish title: Noc oczyszczenia (Night of purification)


I thought that the idea of ​​a Battle Royale and The Hunger Games
was quite courageous and certainly controversial, but this one here
is complete madness!!! Vision of the world certainly frightening,
but unfortunately the movie turned out to be an average thriller.
In addition to the overall theme the whole thing didn't surprise me too much,
you could predict every move, even the ending. Still, I will watch
the next part, maybe there will be more swift action.

September 08, 2014

Polish title: Potwory i spółka (Monsters and Co.)


REWATCH
I love this story and love it more and more. I think that as I watch it
again with my children, I rate it for nine stars.

Tangled (2010)
September 28, 2014

Polish title: Zaplątani (Tangled)


REWATCH
I still love this one. And I cried again on the lanterns scene. Damn!

Ender's Game (2013)
September 15, 2014

Polish title: Gra Endera (Ender's Game)


I recently read the book and I really liked it. The film isn't
ruined the book, but I think it was just good. Everything was presented very
briefly, quite differently imagined trainings, but it's good that
the director put mainly on emotions and not on a great visual spectacle.

September 24, 2014

Polish title: Transcendencja (Transcendence)


I was curious at the beginning, then it was definitely weaker,
and when Will began to rise and spread, I thought: "wtf is this?".
Generally I'm disappointed. A collection of movie stars and the film was
just average. Not enthused neither content nor in acting.

The Physician (2013)
September 21, 2014

Polish title: Medicus


I haven't read the book, supposedly this film doesn't have much
common with the history presented in book, but somehow I don't care,
because the film was really great. Firstly, a very interesting story,
second - great role of Tom Payne, I haven't seen yet this actor
on the screen, but now I will definitely follow. And thirdly great scenery.
Practically everything I liked in this movie, two and a half hours passed
very quickly.

About Time (2013)
September 02, 2014

Polish title: Czas na miłość (Time For Love)


Maybe it wasn't good, definitely too sweet, but yes, I liked it.
From time to time, films like this are needed to stop all the time
to worry about everything, and see the good side of life.
Duet McAdams/Gleeson was great, Bill Nighy wonderful, and the character
of Harry hilarious. I was playing well.

September 07, 2014

Polish title: Gorączka (Heat)


I don't know how I could miss this movie. The whole was
very good. Robert De Niro was brilliant. Would be a star higher
if the action took place a little faster, if there was more tension,
and if at the end Al Pacino even for a moment doubted which way
to chase the fugitive, but apparently too well read the script :P

Neighbors (2014)
September 25, 2014

Polish title: Sąsiedzi (Neighbors)


It was totally stupid, but recently, probably by the fact
that I'm a mother, I have a sentiment to different films showing highs
and lows of motherhood. And this one was pretty funny.
There are days that I myself would gladly come back to college...
yeah, it was a crazy time.

September 13, 2014

Polish title: Kamerdyner (The Butler)


I was expecting much more. It was a great and interesting
overview of the history, but everything was correct and I didn't feel
strong emotions, perhaps only at the time of the dinner, when
the father and son parted in anger. The whole thing was simply just good.

Polish title: Red Tails


The third film about racism in this month, it is a complete
coincidence! I really wanted to see this film and unfortunately
I'm a little disappointed. The whole story was pretty average,
but the scenes in the air... I'm thrilled, so all in all,
I would rate this movie at seven.

42 (2013)
September 13, 2014

Polish title: 42 – Prawdziwa historia amerykańskiej legendy
(42 - The True Story Of An American Legend)


It was a good presentation of history, but given the enormity
of hate whites for another race at that time, I expect some big cruelties
against Jackie Robinson, and beyond talking, nothing happened especially
exciting. Completely any bigger emotions. I'm not saying that
they should rape his wife and burn his house (:D), but he could get neatly
in the face at least once, and not the ball!

September 18, 2014

Polish title: Piękne istoty (Beautiful Creatures)


Omg... Twilight was awful, The Mortal Instruments cheesy,
but at least something attracted me there and here? Absolutely nothing!
It was boring and banal story. I watched the movie in the middle of the day
and I thought that I fall asleep. It was definitely a waste of time
and still the best film about people with supernatural powers
and stuff like that remains for me Harry Potter :D

Polish title: Dawno temu w Ameryce (A long time ago in America)


I'm really sorry for all the fans of this film,
but I didn't see in it anything special for me. Music, part which takes
place in the 20's, when friends were young was great,
later this movie became more and more boring, and generally
absolutely nothing special happened.
Villiana's rating:
September 20, 2014

Polish title: Kłopoty z Harrym (The Trouble with Harry)


I expected something a lot much better, interesting intrigue...
in general, except that whole picture was quite funny, nothing special
was happening and ending also didn't take my breath.

Polish title: Być albo nie być (To Be or Not to Be)


This movie was brilliant! I started to watch it very reluctantly,
but from the beginning I couldn't take my eyes, it was interesting and fun.
