Reviews - Simple and to the Point
Let's cut out the needless rant that we come across on professional review sites. I created this page one night when I was just sick of searching through Netflix for a decent movie to watch. And yet, every time I check online, all I get is ranting from some crazed reviewer who misses the whole point and doesn't even date when he watched the instant movie on Netflix. Therefore, by the time I read his article, its long gone off the instant list.
Here you can take a quick glance or read in detail. I will update it every few days with a quick review of any movies I have watched. Thanks for reading and enjoy :)
A quirky comedy starring Jen and Jason Bateman. It's a fairly typical one too, and includes awkwardness, a few laughs, an interesting storyline, love triangle etc etc. I think we all know that its about a woman, being artificially inseminated. The "donors" sample somehow gets mixed up with that of Bateman. I'm not going to tell you how, because my main reason for watching this was to figure out how the heck that can even happen.
Movie Pace: Fine
Mood Rating: I recommend taking a look if you are seeking out a typical rom com with some interesting side story that branches off from the norm.
Star Trek Into Darkness
This movie is loved by many for a reason. It follows the preceding movie quite well (which I also enjoyed). If you enjoy Sci Fi and whether or not you liked the old Star Trek, you will enjoy this movie. It has a strong cast, good story line and is surely worth a look.
Movie Pace: Spot on
Mood Rating: In the mood for a space adventure

Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind
This is a whacky movie starring Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet in roles that bring the out of their comfort zone. I enjoyed it as did my wife. It's thought provoking and for someone with an open mind who wants to watch something a bit different.
It may be a "love" story but it comes with some twists.
Movie Pace: Steady
Mood Rating: In the mood to watch something different
The Cider House Rules
Good quality Drama starring Charlize Theron, Michael Caine and Tobey Maguire. Not for the faint hearted or opinionated. This movie is suitable for those with an open mind seeking a well put toogether, very interesting movie with a quality cast and great director.
Movie Pace: Just Right
Mood Rating: In the Mood for a controversial drama
The Constant Gardener
"The Constant Gardener", is surely worth taking a look. It's a Romantic Thriller, with political influence (not enough to turn those of us who don't like political movies away).
Mood rating: In the mood for a bit of action, a bit of thinking, and a bit of sentiment, but not too much of any of the above)
Movie Pace: The movie moves at a nice pace throughout.
Twists: Just enough of a shocker.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
This movie is thought provoking, intelligent and enters the mind of a child of a Nazi soldier during World War 2 flawlessly. It manages to exclude too much violence so it can be used for younger viewers to educate them on the atrocities committed. It is a deep piece of art that is suitable for a night in with your partner.
Mood rating: In the mood for a touching and thought provoking movie
For me, this was one of the better Marvel movies. I enjoyed the special effects, story line and fun that came with it. This movie is suitable for young teenagers and up. I watched it with my wife and was not expecting much. It surprized me for the better. It also raises a chuckle here and there, with some witty lines, and awkward situations.
Movie pace: Fast
Mood rating: Lighthearted and in the mood for a fun movie
Twists: Its a hero movie. Enough said.

The Wind that Shakes the Barley
This is a film based around the Irish uprising that eventually destroyed the British occupation of their country. Set in county Cork, the story follows a small band of rebels who hope to aid in the larger rebellion to rid their land of their overlords. The movie is well put together and Cillian Murphy is on top form. It really brings to the forefront, the pain of civil war, and the reality portrayed in the movie is more symbolic than anything else.
Mood rating: Inspirational historical movie, with a good background and storyline
Movie Pace: Medium
An excellently crafted tale, directed by Quentin Tarintino. One of my favorite crime thrillers.This is one of his classics. The characters are fitting in every scene. Some are brutal, but overall just plain entertaining. This is not a movie you will forget any time soon.
Mood rating: Needing entertainment. Its a pretty violent one.
Movie Pace: Taps along nicely.
Twists: here and there.
Who was your favorite?
You may not have heard of this movie, but I do think that it can live up to the likes of Inception. Its a science fiction/psychological thriller. They don't push the boundaries of our imagination too much, while at the same time, this movie makes you think, "imagine if that was possible". I do recommend taking a look at this movie.
Mood rating: In the mood for some action, with a good story line and a lot of fun. Also wanting the kind of special effects that we see in better known movies, but have seen all the blockbusters already.
Movie Pace: Quick. This movie is just the right length and it doesn't drag on. The pace is ideal. Some parts of the movie might even pass you by if you are not paying attention.
Twists: Just the right amount of trickery in this movie.
Were you surprized by the quality of this movie?
Get the Gringo (aka "How I spent my Summer Vacation" in Europe)
This movie is starring Mel Gibson, not the favorite of many right now, but this movie is a cracker. Its based on the life of a career criminal who winds up in a Mexican prison which seems to be run more like a really smelly town. The main character is great and someone you love to hate. In this respect, i think Gibson fits the role perfectly.
This movie was overlooked by too many and I think its worth a second look. Im sure you will enjoy it!
Movie Pace: Ideal
Mood rating: Looking for an exciting movie with a bit of criminality
The Lincoln Lawyer
I actually saw this movie in the cinema and I was very surprised to see it on netflix. This movie, based on the novel by Michael Connelly, follows the sometimes more realistic path of what many lawyers life's entail. It is a well put together story with some nice great acting. A great performance from Matthew McConaughty, who sometimes gets on my nerves for never changing his persona from movie to movie. In the Lincoln Lawyer, he manages to mix it up and delve further into his role. There is plenty of memorable dialogue, and its one that you will recommend to a friend.
Movie Pace: A lot faster than I expected
Mood rating: Looking for an adventure, yet also in the mood to follow a story line.
Twists: Just wait and see. Not too many though.
What did you think?
First and foremost, don't be deceived by the pink writing. This is not a chick flick, and if you are looking for one, look elsewhere. This movie really impressed me for numerous reason. An interesting story line, great acting, characters you can relate to, and not really what you expected. It is actually so much more.
Just watch the movie and let it run its course. But I do warn you, its not for the faint hearted.
Movie Pace: Slow enough to pick up, but wont let you down.
Mood Rating: Mellow, but in need of some entertainment
No Strings Attached
Let me open by saying, I am not a fan of Ashton Kuthcer outside of 'that 70's show'. I am also not a huge fan of the soppy chick flick genre. However, to be honest, this movie was not bad. My wife wanted to watch it and I decided, sure why not! The start of the movie, I tried to ignore it and pretend I didn't like it, but... well.... its not that bad really. Its not on the top of my list but for a rom com, it was a bit of a laugh.
Movie Pace: average rom com
Mood rating: girls or a couple in the mood for a laugh.
Twists: Not sure.....

The Secret Of Kells
This is a wonderful animated story, based on the story of the ever famous book of Kells. The quality of the animation is on a par with Disney and the story line is intriguing. I would recommend this to anyone who like animated movies, but also likes a good storyline.
Movie Pace: Medium
Mood rating: Relaxed
Twists: Not too many
Did you love this movie as much as I did?
A fast paced, witty movie, starring an in form Brad Pitt as a gypsy boxer. The movie is based in England and is quite a charming tale. There are many laugh out loud moments. There are also many memorable lines and catch phrases throughout and a surprising amount of famous faces.
Move Pace: Fast
Mode Rating: Wanting a laugh but a good movie too
Twists: here and there
