4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than i expected....., 19 May 2015
This was better than i expected and certainly was better than part 1 which was plaint an mindless action videogame movie.
ultron on the other hand was more than that.
It had emotion and things to think about and of course it had parts of mindless action but not in so many doses the first movie had and also it was a perfect artistic movie.
The movie had flaws as it never explained rationaly why ultron went against us in the first place. he just did.....LOL
Anyways this is a must have for the marvel fans and the next installment is part 3 of captain america which will continue the story with the emerging civil war.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good old school flick, 22 April 2015

2.0 out of 5 stars A WASTE OF TIME for the "no murders in communism paradise", 18 April 2015
This review is from: Child 44 [DVD] (DVD)
The movie had potential to be a great drama // thriller but instead for the most part it was a boring movie which only showed how much of a "paradise" was the former soviet union's communism for it's native people who did not agreed with the status quo and then.....NOTHING ELSE.
Last 30 minutes are interesting though but the movie is not worth your time. Even the capture of the killer had no suspense at twists.
It's a waste of time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Like TAKEN but an already tired formula....., 18 April 2015
This review is from: Run All Night [DVD] [2015] (DVD)
This was exactly what u knew u would watch from a new liam action // thriller flick.
The movie was not bad but as time goes by the gormula get old and boring.
look what happened with the taken films.
First two taken films were good for their time but now the third taken film bombed compared to the first two films and it was not as good as they were.
Same thing happen with this film.
Something went wrong and the film is very very.....PREDICTABLE to be polite and the plot reasoning for the "friends" to go against each other is at least ridiculus as the guy who later was killed by liam did not even gave a chance for his former.....friend to say that he will not speak against him......LOL

Anyways......the plot is secondary and the action is primary in this film and is a good film to spend 2 hours and then is just a forgettable film.......SO THERE U HAVE IT.

4.0 out of 5 stars "The fast and the Avengers rock"..........should be the right title.......LOL, 6 April 2015
This review is from: Fast & Furious 7 [DVD] (DVD)
Cars falling to the cliff, they jump in to the sky, they crush and destroyed and burn and they jump from another building to....another through windows and YET vin diesel,paul walker and the rest of the gang suffer.....NONE INJURIES.....LOL
This was like an avengers movie in which vin was HULK, the rock was SUPERMAN and paul walker was CAPTAIN AMERICA while leti was BATWOMAN or something.....LOL
An enjoyable movie that is....emotional after the loss of paul with many unrealistic action scenes which is a must have for the FAST AND FURIUS FANS.
Get the blu when it's out ... sit and enjoy.....LOL

Lives of the Later Caesars (Penguin Classics)
Lives of the Later Caesars (Penguin Classics)
by Anthony Birley
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars THE 12 CAESARS BOOK GOT A ... SEQUEL.....LOL, 3 April 2015
The continuation of suetoniu's 12 CAESARS book which explores the lives of the roman emperors AFTER NERVA is finally here.
In fact this is only the first volume which covers the events from 98 AD the death of nerva to 222 AD when heliogavalus was murdered.
there is a second volume of the augustan history which covers the events until diocletian came to power in 284 AD and tell us about the lives of the emperors who followed heliogavalus after 222 AD to 284 AD starting with emperor severus alexander 222 - 235 AD but this volume is not released yet and we should see it soon under the name of.... LIVES OF THE LATER CAESARS VOL 2....LOL
Anyways if u liked the 12 caesars book.....DON'T MISS THIS ONE which apart from the rest have the life of the emperor ANTONINUS PIUS the good emperor 161-180 who never got a biography as little history happened in those GOLDEN PAX ROMANA AGE.

hope vol2 will be released soon....

5.0 out of 5 stars WHERE ARE THE ORIGINAL EXTENDED VERSIONS ? THEY ARE HERE (Update), 3 April 2015
This review is from: Tell It To My Heart (Audio CD)
This supposed to be a new deluxe edition with all the extended versions but instead we got none of the original extended versions and excluding the album versions we only got a few edited remixes of the songs.
For instance there is nowhere to find in this CD the legendairy CLUB MIX of the NO 1 song "tell it to my heart" 7 minute long version.
Also the original extended 8 minute version of "prove your love" is not here as well.
Where is the extended version 6 minutes long of "I will always love you" ? ......NOT HERE AS WELL.



Just checked and this cd has all official extended versions which are not listed here at amazon causing me to write a negative review.
So ignore the above review and get this cd.
The club mix of tell it to my heart, the extended remix of prove your love and the extended remix of don't rush me ARE ALL HERE plus more remixes.

I hope amazon will fix the track listing cause it's a factor to low sales......LOL

4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly a robocop rip-off with a little PUPPETMASTER in the mix......LOL, 29 Mar. 2015
This review is from: Chappie [DVD] (DVD)
I saw this yesterday and this deserves at least the 4 stars.
One of the best action // fantasy movie of the year which has a lot in common with ROBOCOP as it was expected....(the bad robot was exactly the same with the robocop movies bad robots) but the interesting thing is it had reminded me of the puppetmaster horror movies at the end when chappie did what he did (i will not spoil it) to save his mom and his maker.
If u are a fan of those movies u will love this flick which was very interesting from start to finish exploring what could happen if robots gets the human reasoning in their heads.

My recommendation is to buy this dvd when it will be available.

CHAPPIE GETS A 8 OUT OF 10 grade from me = B Grade.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 and a half stars also because SHAILENE'S HAIR WERE CUT SHORT......., 27 Mar. 2015
This actually deserves 3 1/2 stars but since i can't do that here i give it 4 stars.
The movie is a worthy sequel to the original BUT ir's not superior excluding the last 15 minutes which were superb.
Again the choice people have to do good or bad is presented here in huge dozes but the film in large parts was extremely FANTASY for my taste.
We witnessed many many tests tris went through in the fantasy world during the movie and although they were not boring it went a long time for my taste.
Another factor that was A MINUS for me it was skailene's choice to cut her hair short.......



Anyways if u are a fan of the original movie buy this movie too but don't expect to be overwhelmed by it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a watch to an interesting topic....., 20 Mar. 2015
This review is from: Ex Machina [DVD] [2015] (DVD)
A B-movie fantasy which shows what the future will bring if humans will create A.I in robotic form.
The humans will extinct and the question is.......WHY SHOULD CREATE THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE ?
An interesting topic which should be explored but the movie is nothing special not bad either.
Is worth a watch.....
