Here you can read about movies I have (recently) seen! Feel free to comment!

Light Of My Life, Fire Of My Loins, My Sin, My Soul… 3

If you read this title of the today’s Wednesday Movie Review, you can already guess that I watched recently the 1997 remake of the literary movie LOLITA with Jeremy Irons and Dominique Swain.

Together with my girlfriend I enjoyed every single one of the in total 137 minutes of the movie. Just like Leone would have done, Adrian Lyne took these shots that told the story together with the music, written and orchestrated by Ennio Morricone. This is one of the reasons that this movie made a lasting impression on me. The story by Vladimir Nabokov, the acting, the music, just ever bit is a masterpiece. That’s why I give this movie 5 out of 5 stars if you ask me. And you do ask me (smirk).

After watching the movie I was searching like a maniac for a trailer on Youtube and other places on the web, but I couldn’t find any. But luckily I found something else for you: some users on Youtube were so friendly to share some lost scenes and screen test from the movie. This way I can embed in this last post of the year some extra material. (more…)

August Rush 3

Are you one of these people who always saying: ‘Oh, but this movie isn’t realistic. This can’t happen in the real world.’ If so, I’ll give you a tip: sell your TV and home cinema system on eBay. No, I am not trying to insult you, it’s just a good opener for this weeks review, because I recently saw a fairy tale mixed up in a 112 minutes music video masterpiece.

Come on, it’s Christmas, don’t be realistic and sit down, cuddling with your spouse without breaking the remote control by sitting on it and enjoy this movie. The plot is as warm as your cacao and comes right out of fairy tale tellers heart. (more…)

Felon 2

When I watched this movie recently it was like one of my worst nightmares had been told by director Rick Roman Waugh. Can you imagine by just protecting your family and your properties you brake the law accidentally by yourself? This is what happens to main character Wade Porter played by Stephen Dorff.

Felon tells the story about the nice family man Wade Porter with a good future who loses all when he by accident kills a thief that broke into his house. Sentenced for manslaughter he has for the next three years to face the hard reality in prison, where the rules of the normal society are no longer valid. Whilst doing his time in prison he not just need to survive but also has to make decisions that can cost him even more years of his life. (more…)
