In Time (2011)

Un film care se afla de mult timp in folderul meu cu filme de actiune din laptop, insa pe care l-am vazut de abia ieri si… la tv, pe HBO. Mama mea l-a vazut inaintea mea si mi-a povestit pe scurt despre ce e vorba si mi s-a parut interesant, asa ca am decis aseara sa-i aloc doua ore din viata mea (mai ales ca acesta a fost pentru mine un lazy weekend). Pe langa idee (oamenii nu mai imbatranesc dupa ce implinesc 25 de ani si plata se face pe baza de timp), mi-a placut foarte mult si distributia: protagonistii Justin Timberlake (Friends with Benefits, Bad Teacher si The Social Network), Amanda Seyfried (Les Miserables, Gone si Mean Girls) si Cillian Murphy (The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, The Dark Knight si Batman Begins) si Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory si Hancock), Olivia Wilde (The Change-Up si The O.C.), Matt Bomer (White Collar si Magic Mike) si Alex Pettyfer (Magic Mike).

Les Miserables

Nu obisnuiesc sa merg in timpul saptamanii la cinema, dar fiind foarte ocupata in perioada asta in weekend-uri, am decis ieri ca dupa ore sa merg impreuna cu doua prietene sa vedem mult asteptatul si laudatul musical ,,Les Miserables”. Au fost trei ore superbe, l-as revedea oricand cu placere si chiar m-a facut sa ma gandesc serios sa citesc cele 1500 de pagini ale lui Victor Hugo. Trebuie sa recunosc ca rar a mai existat ceva care sa ma emotioneze atat de tare ca povestea lui Jean Valjean: am plans trei ore aproape fara oprire. Ma intreb daca poate fi viata intr-adevar atat de cruda cu o singura persoana… Distributia, de exceptie de altfel, impreuna cu muzica, jocul actoricesc si ideile fac ca acest film sa merite cele 8 nominalizari la Oscar pe care le-a primit. Cel mai mult se remarca Hugh Jackman (The Prestige), dar nici restul nu este mai prejos: Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway (The Dark Knight Rises, Love and Other Drugs, Alice in Wonderland, Valentine’s Day, Becoming Jane, The Devil Wears Prada si Brokeback Mountain), Amanda Seyfried (Gone si Mean Girls), Sacha Baron Cohen si Helena Bonham Carter (Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland si Sweeney Todd). Este un film pe care-l recomand din toata inima pentru oricine. Se pare ca sfarsitul anului 2012 si inceputul anului 2013 este plin de ecranizari de romane: Anna Karenina, Marile Sperante, urmand Marele Gatsby.

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

The day before yesterday I watched this movie, although I first wanted to see Hall Pass. When I realised its quality sucked, I gave Captain America a shot. I liked the film, especially because it didn’t bore me, but it was way too unrealistic and SF for my taste. I still liked to see hot Chris Evans (What’s Your Number?), handsome Sebastian Stan (Spread, Gossip Girl and Gone) and gorgeous Richard Armitage (Robin Hood and North and South) on the screen again. Now I’m waiting for the sequel in 2014.

storyline via imdb: It is 1942, America has entered World War II, and sickly but determined Steve Rogers is frustrated at being rejected yet again for military service. Everything changes when Dr. Erksine recruits him for the secret Project Rebirth. Proving his extraordinary courage, wits and conscience, Rogers undergoes the experiment and his weak body is suddenly enhanced into the maximum human potential. When Dr. Erksine is then immediately assassinated by an agent of Nazi Germany’s head of its secret HYDRA research department, Johann Schmidt aka the Red Skull, Rogers is left as a unique man who is initially misused as a propaganda mascot. However, when his comrades need him, Rogers goes on a successful adventure that truly makes him Captain America and his war against Schmidt begins.

Mean Girls (2004)

On Thursday, I was so bored at school that I brought my laptop and watched this movie with Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Midnight in Paris, Sherlock Holmes and The Notebook) and Amanda Seyfried (Gone). The film had a little comedy and romance in it, something like a Disney movie, but more kinky. I liked it because it shows the truth. Watch it if you want to understand what I’m talking about.

storyline via imdb: Raised in African bush country by her zoologist parents, Cady Heron thinks she knows about survival of the fittest. But the law of the jungle takes on a whole new meaning when the home-schooled 16-year-old enters public high school for the first time and encounters psychological warfare and unwritten social rules that teenage girls face today.

Gone

Last Sunday, right after I came back from Italy, I met my bff and we went to the cinema to watch Gone, a thriller with Amanda Seyfried and Sebastian Stan. I really liked the story, though I was freaking out while I was watching it. The only thing I’d change about this movie is the ending: I didn’t like that Jill kills the serial killer even if he deserves it. Like this she comes down to his level.

storyline via imdb: When her sister disappears, Jill is convinced the serial killer who kidnapped her two years ago has returned, and she sets out to once again face her abductor.
