Hearing that Natalie Portman and Benedict Cumberbatch in the same movie was the actual cause for me to watch the flick, both are terrific modern actors. Scarlett was not such an interest, she's just plain as an actress but she was okay here not outstanding, I'm not blaming her because ,expect of the visuals, nothing were.
The plot was just a soap opera with great customs and beautiful people, even Natalie and Benedict were in those roles.it's worth watching for the beauty of it.

Shooter (2007)


The movie starts promising and I thought I would end up liking it a lot. But throughout of it, I recognized the type of movie, it was very entertaining and well-made but with the same pattern of solution for every issue, violence of course, it was not refreshing and it did not gave me a whole new point of view. The acting worked well, so does the directing and writing.However,still just a mediocre fun.

For those who had seen it, I highly recommend a rewatch. Because when you're more familiar with the plot events, you can dig a little deeper with the small nuances, Than you can understand its brilliance, every scene and move has a thought behind IT.
In my opinion, one of the best movies I had watched.

I have no idea why my expectations from the film were so enormous. It was basically not so great, I thought it would be.I guess that's is the reason it was a big letdown.
I have not felt any chemistry between the main characters and both came across as unlikeable. Their characteristics are underdeveloped. The boy supposed to be free and careless but he was just a cliché of, honestly ,the majority of teenagers. He was not really funny to make him so popular, just a douche bag.
In addition, the girl is obsessed with him no matter what he has done to her. she was all over him, it was too much about him they forgot herself in it, she has an intriguing background but they did not really expressed it... Plus, it felt like he did not even liked her. So the relationship is not convincing.

Vantage Point (2008)


I thought it was a well- made thriller, not something that blows your mind but it`s edgy enough to keep you sitting and waiting for more even though it`s predictable.
ST9156's rating:

I wanted to do a diary for each month but my time is quite short lately so I don't watch enough movies to make it monthly.

Weirdly enough I didn`t realize I`ve wrote "2014" instead of "2015", living in the past...
