Taken 2

Yesterday me and my best friend, Flavia, took advantage of some spare time and went to CinemaCity to watch the latest Liam Neeson movie. I remember when I watched on TV Taken 1 and how I loved it, so the second part was a must for me. And to be honest, when I checked the film list, I didn’t see any other one to be worth spending the time and the money. So, if you’re a fan of action movies, you shouldn’t miss this one!

storyline via imdb: Bryan Mills, the former CIA man who rescued his daughter Kim from some Albanian human traffickers, is being targeted by the families of the men he killed. When he goes to Istanbul on a job, he invites Kim and her mother, Leonor, whose marriage is on the rocks to join him. When the Albanians learn of this they try to grab them. They get Bryan and Leonor, he warns Kim and she evades them. Later he calls Kim to tell her to go to the Embassy but she insists that he let her help them. Bryan tells her to get his case which is filled with weapons and with that, she finds them and gives him a weapon. He escapes and plans to come back for Leonor but they are too many and is unable to save Leonor. So he relies on his memory to find her.

The Dark Knight Rises

WARNING: This article is very long and contains spoilers!

Finally!!!! After four years of waiting for this sequel, I’ve finally seen it eight days ago. And it was worth the waiting. Like I said in the post where I presented my Spiderman review, I love superheroes, but Chris Nolan’s Batman movies aren’t just cheap films with fights. They are psychological and deep. Have you seen other movies directed by Christopher Nolan, like The Prestige or Inception? If the answer is yes, you’ve got to know what I’m talking about here. Four years ago, I simply loved the Joker. And no, I had no idea about Heath Ledger, the fact that he was dead or stuff. He was brilliant; I realized it even if I was 12 years old. And I cried when I found out that he was just 28 when he died. I’ve made an obsession for him and The Dark Knight became my favorite movie ever (that’s why I’ve seen it more than 25 times haha).

2008 was also the year when I discovered my thing for cinematography and because of my passional way of being, I’ve had several small crushes on different actors, like Tom Hardy (Rocknrolla, Inception, This means war), when I saw him in 2009 in Wuthering Heights – television movie. Back then he was no famous actor, but now his time has come and he deserves it because he is extraordinary talented. In the end of The Dark Knight, the Joker doesn’t die: he’s just caught by the SWAT teams; so I guessed Christopher Nolan wanted to make a sequel also with Joker. But six months before the premiere, Heath Ledger was found dead in his apartment in New York City. So Chris had to choose another villain: Bane. And who else to play Bane, but Tom Hardy?! He did a great job out of his part and I think everybody loved it. Christian Bale (The Prestige, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and Public Enemies) was as usual the perfect Batman and Bruce Wayne (sorry George Clooney and Val Kilmer). I had to admit that at first, I wasn’t very thrilled about Anne Hathaway (Brokeback Mountain, The Devil Wears Prada, Becoming Jane and Valentine’s Day) playing Selina Kyle, but even I, as a girl, have to face the truth: she was a very sexy and charming Catwoman. I was very looking forward to seeing Marion Cotillard (Public Enemies, Nine, Inception and Midnight in Paris), but in the end I was very disappointed to learn that she was the brain behind the evil plan and not Bane. However, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (10 Things I Hate About You, 500 Days of Summer and Inception) didn’t let me down. I burst into tears when a woman called him Robin in the end of the film. The rest of the cast was pretty great: Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Michael Cane, Daniel Sunjata, Liam Neeson and Cillian Murphy.

Well… a masterpiece indeed :) I’ve seen in twice, once in IMAX and I’d do it again! Hope this was helpful and enjoyable and thank you for reading!

storyline via imdb: Despite his tarnished reputation after the events of The Dark Knight, in which he took the rap for Dent’s crimes, Batman feels compelled to intervene to assist the city and its police force which is struggling to cope with Bane’s plans to destroy the city.

The Amazing Spider-Man

I’ve always loved superheroes. It’s a week since I’ve seen this amazing action/romantic movie in 3D at Cinema City and I have to admit that I really loved it! Andrew Garfield (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and The Social Network) was a very cute and funny Spiderman; but I prefer Emma Stone (Crazy, Stupid, Love., Friends with Benefits, Easy A and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past) redhead. They make a very nice couple though. I laughed and cried at the same movie and this is very nice. I’m sure they are going to make a sequel for the film! Go watch it: it is indeed AMAZING! I hate spiders, but this one was cute :D

storyline via imdb: Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy, and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr Curt Connors, his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.

he’s cute also with glasses

I love his smile here

Snow White and the Huntsman

Yesterday I went with my BFF to the cinema. We chose to watch this drama, which had here and there Transformers kind of scenes. The actress who played the Queen is soooooo beautiful and unfortunately Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga) doesn’t beat her. I liked the idea of a  love triangle (seems like Kristen is damned to play this kind of roles), but in the end it’s not clear whether Snow White chooses William or the Huntsman. William was played by Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) and the Huntsman by Chris Hemsworth, Liam Hemsworth (Miley Cyrus’ fiancée) elder brother. Maybe you know him better as Thor. Both of them were damn hot, but if I had to choose, I’d certainly go with handsome Chris, who is 191 cm tall and one of the most virile men I’ve ever seen ♥

storyline via imdb: Snow White is the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen. Unable to tolerate the insult to her vanity, the evil queen decides that Snow White must die. The queen sends a huntsman to kill Snow White. However the huntsman finds himself unable to murder the innocent young woman, and instead ends up training her to become a warrior capable of threatening the queen’s reign.

I love it when very tall men make fun of the short women :D

well… this is unfortunate

and here are the gorgeous brothers

One for the Money

Sunday afternoon I wanted to watch a comedy. Though I haven’t heard really nice things about „One for the Money” with Katherine Heigl, I gave it a shot. It was pretty nice, but I though it’s going to be some romance in it as well.

storyline via imdb: Jersey girl Stephanie Plum after losing her job, is broke. Needing a job she is told that her cousin, a bail bondsman, needs someone to help out in the office. But all he has are skip tracers. She learns that Joe Morelli, a guy she knew intimately years ago, is one of them. She eventually finds him but wasn’t really prepared so he gets away. Another bounty hunter, Ranger tries to teach her. Eventually she finds him again but he claims he is innocent of the crime he is accused of and he is trying to prove his innocence. Eventually Stephanie thinks he’s telling the truth so she stakes out the person who can help him but she only finds herself in trouble and Morelli saves her. She tries to find someone who can prove his innocence but problem is shortly after meeting with them they’re killed or attacked.
