Shia's saints grips and emotes

16 years, 7 months ago at Jul 27 9:55
A coming-of-age drama about a boy (Shia Labeouf) growing up in Astoria, N.Y., during the 1980s. As his friends end up dead, on drugs or in prison, he comes to believe he has been saved from their fate by various so-called saints.

The first half hour is a little disjointed, but give it a chance, I assure you by the end you'll have been touched by the depth of its emotion and gripped ... read more

Saints and Sinners

On unplanned procrastination:
In the beginning, maybe in the first or second chapter of the video, there's this semi-fuck scene and since I was watching in a bedroom with two other sleeping people (my Mom and my niece), I thought it was okay to watch it without skipping to the next chapter. But it was getting dirtier and so I decided to peek if my Mom was really slumbering (supposedly) and ... read more

Leaving the shadows

How much time allotted to us to life? What we should do in this life good to remember our long journey for many, not dissolved in this world, but remained in people's minds, like one tiny letters, but an interesting one page long book. The question being, a matter of time, attitude of everyone who walks on this earth. Everyone chooses their own way, which is already too late to do it. Correct this... read more

A good movie

“I wasn't really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a really nice cast involved, I was quite eager to check it out. On top of that, it was definitely one of the best titles ever conceived for a movie. First of all, even though I had seen already 3 other movies directed by Dito Montiel ('Fighting', 'The Son of No One' and 'Empire State'), I actually had no idea that the guy was actually first a successful writer (in fact, before that, he was also a musician and even a model at some point). Well, even though the whole thing was nothing original, it was still a really solid biographical drama and easily by far the best movie delivered by Montiel so far. Indeed, he managed to create some interesting characters who felt really genuine and he also succeeded in getting some pr” read more

"18.1. Diton elämä on helvettiä, koska isä rakastaa häntä väärällä tavalla. Queensin kaduilla ei voida hyvin, ja tätä todistellaan jatkuvasti. Yksi jannuista jää metron alle, sillä hän haluaa istua lätäkössä. Myöhemmin Robert Downey jr. tulee takaisin ja hakee synninpäästöä koiran silmillään. Elämän nurjaa puolta käsitellään kuitenkin onnistuneesti. Tosipohjainen tarina tuntuu hieman kiiltokuvamaiselta, ja uskon todellisuuden olleen fiktiota karumpaa."
