Review: Brave (2012)

Brave is the latest Pixar computer-animated movie, directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman and released under the Disney Pictures banner.

The story is set in Scotland and follows the adventures of Princess Merida who’s determined to defy her parents wishes that she marry the firstborn of one of the other clans. Her refusal to do so starts a feud between the clans, while in the meantime Merida asks the help of a witch with a spell that’s supposed to persuade her mother to leave her be, but turns out to be more of a curse.  Continue reading

American Horror Story Asylum

Who here is excited about the incoming second season of AHS? I know I am!

The show is set to premiere on Oct. 17 and this time the story will take place in an insane asylum with nothing to do whatsoever with the Harmon house or the story line of the first season.

Jessica Lange is one of the main characters and she’s playing a twisted nun, Sister Jude.  Zachary Quinto, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson are all coming back as main cast members. We’re also going to see Adam Levine ( Maroon 5) . For now, IMDb is crediting him only for the first episode so it’s unclear if his character is there to stay or not.

In case you haven’t seen it yet, take a look at one of the first promos:

 

Don’t forget, Oct. 17 on FX!

Review: Ice Age: Continental Drift 3D (2012)

Ice Age 4 walks that fine line between taking it too far with the franchise and showing us why it lasted this long in the first place and still the best parts of the movie were Scrat’s scenes.

It all starts with him, of course. In an effort to retrieve his acorn, Scrat somehow falls down to the center of the earth and jump-starts the division of the previously singular land into continents. As the land starts to split away, Many, Diego and Sid get separated from their friends and family. Sailing on an iceberg, they try to get back to Many’s family, as promised, all the while trying to escape greedy pirates and vicious sea creatures.  Continue reading

Very excited!

Finally watching The Dark Knight Rises tonight! Even though, yes, I said I won’t be watching any other upcoming movie about Batman after I watched The Dark Knight with Heath Ledger because that movie was just..epic.

However, I heard nothing but good things about this movie so yeah. Review to come after. 🙂

Review: Cabin in the Woods (2012)

I’ve wanted to see this movie since the first time I heard of it, but I kept putting in on the back burner. I mean, I haven’t even seen J. Edgar and I’ve had the movie for a couple of months now.

I’ve read great, no, scratch that, glowing reviews for Cabin in the Woods so, of course, I had huge expectations. Glad to say they were met and more! Continue reading

Review: Total Recall (2012)

Total Recall is a remake of the 1990 movie of the same name starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. In the 2012 version Colin Farrell plays Douglas Quaid/Hauser and Jessica Biel is Melina.

I think it’s hard writing a review when it comes to a remake without mentioning the original piece and/or comparing the two, so that’s exactly what I’m going to do myself. But first let’s start with the things I enjoyed about this one. Continue reading

Nothing to do with movies

I think the title is self explanatory; this post has nothing to do with movies.

Sorry for being awol, but the time had come for a well deserved vacation..in Greece!

Let me just tell you: if you’ve never been to Greece before, than you definitely should in the near, near future. It’s absolutely beautiful and makes for a very interesting experience. I stayed in Potos, on Thassos island and we only passed through Kavala on the mainland. Continue reading

Review: The Amazing Spider-Man

The start of a new Spiderman trilogy, as it’s been heard through the grapevine, The Amazing Spider-Man is the best Marvel comics based movie of its kind so far. Also, one of my favorite superhero movies because..everybody loves their friendly neighborhood hero, right?

First of all, the casting was spot-on. If you thought Tobey Maguire did a good job as Peter Parker in the previous installments, then you’ll love Andrew Garfield.  He did an amazing job as the quirky, awkward, geeky Parker by day and funny, confident superhero by night. Continue reading
