I haven't written a review in a while, but felt compelled to for Eastern Promises, a film I had no knowledge about before heading into the theater last night. In fact, the only reason my girlfriend and I watched it last night was because the theater complex was being renovated and only had 3 movies playing on a Friday night! After the first half hour, I noticed the big named stars, Viggo Mortens... read more

Expensive cars, sadistic acts of violence, stylish suits & superb acting is what makes David Cronenberg's Russian-mob movie, Eastern Promises, a modern-classic. Better than A History Of Violence, a film on the same vein but not better than his bizarre-cult Videodrome and the sci-fi great The Fly.

Anyways, this film reminded me of GTA: San Andreas in some areas and I swear, the whole ... read more

Another Cronenberg gem

I really liked his last movie "A History of Violence" and was looking forward to this movie especially when Mortenson signed on again to lead. I wasn't disappointed and had a really great night out. (It was a pretty good birthday present to myself.)

One of the reasons I wanted to watch it was because of an article I read about the tatoos that were on the characters. Apparently in... read more

The film follows the mysterious and ruthless Nikolai, who is tied to one of London's most notorious organized crime families. His carefully maintained existence is jarred when he crosses paths with Anna, an innocent midwife trying to right a wrong, who accidentally uncovers potential evidence against the family. Now Nikolai must put into motion a harrowing chain of murder, deceit, and retribution.

"22.5. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Nyt vajaa pari kuukautta kestänyt ties kuinka mones Sopranosin kierros vaikuttaa paitsi harvempilukuiseen elokuvien katseluun myös hyvin ilmeisesti valintoihin. Uusintoja ja rikoksia. Pidän vieläkin molemmista. Enää muutama jakso, miten mahdan sitten jatkaa. Eastern Promisesia kohtaan en miellä olevan varsinaista tunnesidettä, sillä se on luonnollisesti tullut kuvioihin vähän myöhemmin, kuin aiemmin monesti mainitut, mutta aika monesti on teatterikierr"

"Недурный кинч, пришедшийся мне по нраву благодаря своей тематике и сеттингу. Но стоит отметить, что у фильма нет концовки, какого-то узла эмоционального. Хотелось бы увидеть чуть больше событий в итоге. Или даже целый сериал на эту тему, серий так в 25, с удовольствием бы глян"
