4.0 out of 5 stars One of Friedkin's best (of his last movies), 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Killer Joe [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Ok, forget what you know and what you see avbout Friedkin in the seventies: it's a peak he was not going to reach again in the following decades. Still this is a pulp, brilliant, dark comedy, very well written, with a bunch of good actors and Matthew mcconaughey best performance ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars an excellent thriller, 21 May 2013

This review is from: The Pact [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Thriller or horror? Both of them. The PAct is a nightmarish journey through some family secrets and it's conducted with rare and strong talent, both visual and narrative. It's a creepy movie, where you can't tell if you'd better expect what's going on is supernatural rather than real and realistic. A real surprise!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent price/quality ratio, 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love Gola and I think they are the only shoes that can compare with Adidas, in terms of class and style. In a way they are even better because they are not so popular as Adidas. And this match of colors is sporty and casual/classy at the same time, so you can wear it with both jeans, sport suit or some more elegant trousers

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes!, 21 May 2013

Best Bond ever. Classy, Classic, a movie that refreshes Bond And British tradition in a very Clever, respectful and profound way. No wonder they called Sam Mendes to celebrate this 50th chapter of the saga. Loved it. It's definitely a cut above all the others Bond (with Daniel Craig at his best)

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected, 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I tell you what: I learned not to trust Christopher Nolan, not to think he is an autheur: most of times he's just a bluff, of course a talented director, but a smart ass who plays with the audience and pose as an artist, like trying to convince us all (and the critics) that he's more than just a director. All his movies have some great ideas but he can't or doesn't want to go more deeper and develop them to turn them into a coherent and brilliant point of view on life and society. Same thing happens here: up to the pre-final of the movie, you think (I hoped actually) that all this evil will finally make a point and make sense, but, exactly like in the previos Batman, it all colapse at the end: the bad guys seem to be more stupid than they were portrayed, and all this conspiracy turns into a farse. But still you can enjoy all the narration of this dark story, and it's not wasted time. Somehow it's a shame tha Nolan never had the gut to be serious and bold and maverick up to the end, like he suddenly felt the need, everytime, to turn it all to mainstream and tell the public (and the procuders), don't worry, I was joking, it's all going to end well and good guys will finally prevail.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOthing special but funny, 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It could have been a cult, if it didn't stick to much to action and slow down a little more to tell us more about the characters and their drama you just have a glimpse of, but nothing deeper thant a clue. But still it works, some scenes and the setting are cool and I don't think it's so much worse than The Raid, which is obviously the first film you think of when you watch this one.


Knowing [Blu-ray] [2009] [US Import]
Knowing [Blu-ray] [2009] [US Import]
Dvd ~ Nicolas Cage

4.0 out of 5 stars four stars, 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It might sound too much, but I think this movie deserves it: despite Nicolas Cage (here at least his funny face is justified by the overwhelming events that turn his life upside down and the mystery he find himself to face) and even if it's not as original and visually stunning as Dark City, which remains the Director's masterpiece.
But the plot is intrguing, the atmosphere works and makes you feel like thrown into a deep mystery you want to get more in depth with, some scenes are fabulous and the ending is bitter and unexpected, almost trascendetal and existentialist.


Swingers [Blu-ray] [US Import]
Swingers [Blu-ray] [US Import]
Dvd ~ Vince Vaughn
Offered by passionFlix UK
Price: 4.79

4.0 out of 5 stars A great little gem, 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I discovered this movies many years ago, when it was released on VHS in the Sates. It arrived to Italy years later, and it was already a classic to me. Over the years, Doug Liman lost his touch, but here you can see a young filmaker and a couple of future Hollywood stars as fresh as they will hardly be since then. Swingers is not just the story of some young fellows who want to make it in move business, it's the story of those 3 people who made a low budget movie and made it because of it. It's free cinema, not just independent, but free as you can breathe freedom and lazyiness and easy living in L.A. when you are young and all you want to do is hanging around, living day by day and even more night by night. It's miraculously makes you live and feel that atmosphere and that approach to life. In a funny, easy going way

4.0 out of 5 stars Great action drama, 17 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Looper [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The subject and the idea are great. The development of the story is engaging and dramatic. The actors are at their best. And the sense of it all is a great action sci fi drama with a heart, a brain and an uncommon point of view on life. A must see

3.0 out of 5 stars almost four stars, 17 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This it's a semi-gem of american teen movies. It's mean, it's brilliant, it's cool and original. Maybe not so profound and astonishing as it should to be a milestone of (anti)teen movies, but it's at the level of "Election"
