This was a very funny and smartly-written romantic comedy, finding humor in everyday situations lived by real, likeable people with real problems. This sense of realism and the great performances all around made it even more compelling to watch and sets it above other films in the genre.
PROJECT ALMANAC (2015)
>> Kombinasi sci-fi mockumentary dengan suntikan penuh energi dan adrenalin dari anak-anak muda, susah untuk kemudian tidak menyandingkan pesona yang dimiliki Project Almanac dengan Chronicle. Keduanya sama-sama menawarkan suguhan fiksi ilmiah dari sutradara debutan potensial yang jajaran casting-nya didominasi dengan para aktor muda. Project Almanac memang tidak menawarkan premis superhero seperti Chronicle, tetapi cerita tentang usaha manusia menjadi Tuhan ketika bermain-main dengan waktu juga bisa dibilang sama populernya. Dalam kasus ini, ada sekelompok anak-anak muda pintar yang menemukan dan membuat sebuah mesin waktu untuk kemudian dipakai bersenang-senang yang seperti seharusnya dilakukan oleh para remaja, mulai dari sekadar curang di ujian kimia, mengerjai teman yang kamu benci, menang besar di lotre, sampai menghadiri event sebesar Chicago Lollapalooza. Ya, plotnya memang generik, namun semua kesenangan time travel dengan balutan adrenalin muda plus penggunaan spesial efek tak berlebihan berhasil dituangkan dengan baik oleh Dean Israelite. Project Almanac tidak pernah menjadikan dirinya sebuah film yang rumit, sebaliknya sang sineas memberinya sedikit elemen persahabatan dan percintaan yang mampu bersanding manis dengan plotnya.

옳다고 생각하는일을 해라. @saw_the_movie
소속 영화찍는 사고뭉치 셀럽들의 뒤치닥거리에 정신없이 돌아가는 영화제작사 대표의 하루!! 짱잼.완성도 높은 영화!!의상도 화면 구도도 색감도 눈이 즐거움 채닝테이텀의 탭댄스 뮤지컬씬
스칼렛 요한슨의 수중발레씬은 눈이 즐겁고
틸다스윈튼의 성격다른 쌍둥이 자매연기.
조지클루니를 비롯해 이런 톱스타들이? 싶은 대단한 배우들이 줄줄이 등장
스토리의 기승전결 보다는 여기저기 터지는 볼거리에 눈호강 하는 영화. 캐릭터들 매력이 엄청나 다 귀여워 죽겠어
주의평을보니 호불호가 아주 극명하게 0과10으로 갈리는 영화인 듯ㅋㅋ
Movie Review - Friday the 13th Pt 4 (1984)
Jason Voorhees came back to life.....again. A group of young people moved in a new place to stay a stay. Swimming at the lake. Two beautiful twins. Sex with girls. Raining. Showing Jason's face for the second time but ugly one. That's all you to need know.
Overall, I would grade this movie an B- for atmospheres, setting and some good kills. It's a little cheesy and corny but it's still good enough to enjoy. Definitely not the best one in the franchise, in my opinion.

“ saw this recently and besides it being a Hitckcock movie , it was nice to see the originator of the plot it has before Throw Mamma From The Train and Horrible Bosses tackled it for dark comedic purposes. Overall : “ an enjoyable suspenseful drama thats as intriguing and skin crawling as you’d hope but wish it was more twisted as far as the ‘criss cross murder angle’ of the story . rating : 3.5/5 “ - Dal . #strangersonatrain#hitchcock#moviereview#horriblebosses#throwmammafromthetrain

The Dark Tower quick movie review
Despite two good performances from Idris Elba and Tom Taylor and a bevy of entertaining action sequences, The Dark Tower still can’t save itself from being one of the weaker Stephen King adaptations. It’s not quite as bad as “Cell” per se; it’s just bland and inaccessible for the uninitiated.
For one, it feels like you need to have an extensive knowledge on the mythology in order to better understand the film. There is a through-line of action that you can follow, but good luck if you really want to know more about the backstory ‘cause you aren’t going to get any of it here. For that, you might actually have to go read the books.
Matthew McConaughey’s performance was also one of the weakest parts of The Dark Tower. He doesn’t comes off as menacing, and I still see him as Matthew McConaughey and not the all-powerful, all-terrifying Man in Black.
All in all, The Dark Tower is not really a good movie but it’s not bad either. Fans of the series might get a kick out of it but for the uninitiated, it’s totally inaccessible. With great Stephen King adaptations this year like It and Gerald’s Game, The Dark Tower stands out like a sore thumb as the black sheep of the family.
This was an exciting action film with a surprising amount of depth which was also hurt by a slightly unbalanced story but featured excellent performances by the ageless Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan.
