april 2012: films  
I believe that love that is true and real creates a respite from death. All cowardice comes from not loving, or not loving well, which is the same thing. And when the man who is brave and true looks death squarely in the face like some rhino hunters I know, or Belmonte, who's truly brave. It is because they love with sufficient passion to push death out of their minds, until the return that it does to all men.
  Woody Allen, Midnight in Paris



Man on a Ledge (2012)
Absolutely amazing, one of the smartest action films I've watched in quite some time.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011)
I'd really liked the first film, but this one was disappointing. Nothing new- only forced jokes and unnecessary fight scenes. However, I must admit that the ending scene was very smart and the final confrontation between Sherlock and Moriarty excellently performed. Of course, the director's work was amazing, especially in those final scenes.

Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011)
I had a lot of fun watching this one. Tom Cruise made me laugh so hard, Jeremy Renner can MIs depth while the finale made me smile. There was nothing interesting or original here, but it was an enjoyable action film in a way few can be.

New Year's Eve (2011)
It wasn't even funny in the way Hollywood romance usually is. Don't watch it- I'd say it's one of the few films I've ever watched that leaves you exactly as you were before it.

Midnight in Paris (2011)
I loved it. It was one of the few inspiring films I've watched lately. It made me think and understand a lot of things. I'd recommend it to anyone who is trying to find out what he's supposed to do in his life.

Like Crazy (2011)
So, it is very possible that one day I will be indifferent to the people that now mean the world to me. I will change, they will change. We will grow apart. Very well. Now is there anyone here that can explain me why I had to sit throug two hours of absolute nothingess for this? I can't say I didn't appreciate the irony in the finale or the photography, but you independent, progressive writers can write far better stories that will pass the exact same message.

Nanny McPhee (2005)
I always enjoy this! A true family film: cute and educative.

Falling Up (2009)
If you've read the summary you know what this is about: a very predictable, light film with potential to be enjoyable. If you've watched the trailer, however, you;ve watched the film, and all you're left with is a forcedintercourse between the characters. I really don't know what I expected...

Blue Valentine (2010)
I must warn you: my opinion on this is not going to be a very popular one. So, no: I didn't love it, and it didn't make me cry. I did like it, however. I did understand it - or I think I did, at least.
This is a film that shows what happens after the happy ever after, after the closing credits. This is about the end of a marriage.This is a story of two people who made a horrible mistake.
I wouldn't say it is as good as they say. Just an ordinary story about ordinary people who make ordinary mistakes. I don't want to focus on Cindy's disgust for her husband or on dean'scharacter, just at the fact that this film pretty much tells you that there's no such thing as love at first sight, and even if there is, you must look a bit deeper into the other person, before rushing into a marriage: you don't know who they are and what they want;you don't know where this decision will lead you.

Of course I do! Sure, I laughed with the second one and there were some pretty good scenes, but the first one was more... impressive, I suppose:)
