Movie + Year: Argo (2012)
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1024648/
IMDB score: 8.0
IMDB description: A dramatization of the 1980 joint CIA-Canadian secret operation to extract six fugitive American diplomatic personnel out of revolutionary Iran.

My opinion:
Honestly I wasn't sure what to expect, I just wanted to see this one because I knew it was greatly nominated in Hollywood at the moment.
I have to say I loved this movie, the story was good, the acting was good, it was genuinely a good movie.
Ben Affleck surprised me, this man can -apart from acting- direct pretty fucking well.
They have done an outstanding job, it's as if you were there, in the 80s, in Iran.
Go watch this, it's a good movie. Don't expect an American action movie though, because it isn't one.
At the end of the movie they also show a comparison with real pictures and scenes from the movie (the man hanging from the crane, etc), they did an awesome job is the only thing you can conclude upon seeing this in the credits.
My rating: 9/10

Movie + Year: 2009
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0988045/
IMDB score: 7.6
IMDB description: Detective Sherlock Holmes and his stalwart partner Watson engage in a battle of wits and brawn with a nemesis whose plot is a threat to all of England.

My opinion: Loved the movie, had no idea what to expect of the iconic Sherlock & Watson and was not disappointed. Robert Downey Jr. kills this role.
Excellent music choice also, loved the funny-sounding action background music.
Story is not bad either, I won't say it was brilliant, but it certainly had awesome parts in it.
Go watch this movie if you like originality, humor, detective skills that only Sherlock Holmes has, and Robert Downey Jr.

My rating: 9/10

Not really a movie, but hell...





Movie + Year: 5555 (2003)
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0368667/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
IMDB score: 7.6
IMDB description: A continuation of the story told in the Daft Punk music videos "One More Time," "Aerodynamic," "Digital Love," and "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger."

My opinion:
I've watched this movie time after time, and I still love it. Great on many occasions, as background or to just watch. Lack of dialogue is tiny downside, but the songs fit perfectly with each scene, reducing the need for dialogue. Don't expect too much humor, except for some funny background humor. You'll get more tears from crying than from laughing.
My rating:
9/10 (movie is great, but no spoken text. Makes the movie a bit harder to follow)

Movie + Year: 1998
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120586/
IMDB score: 8.6
IMDB description: A former neo-nazi skinhead tries to prevent his younger brother from going down the same wrong path that he did.

My opinion: Great movie. Quite disturbing at some points as well, as it has most likely happened somewhere IRL. Still great movie, should watch.

My rating: 9/10

Movie + Year: The Great Gatsby (2013)
IMDB:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1343092/
IMDB score: 7,5
IMDB description:A Midwestern war veteran finds himself drawn to the past and lifestyle of his millionaire neighbor.

My opinion:
Great movie, although with one big discussion point: the music. Baz Luhrmann uses modern day music (produced by Jay-Z) in this movie, which has both upsides and downsides. It's surprisingly fitting to see people dressed in Roaring Twenties outfits going berserk to Jay-Z or some Electroswing, I mean somehow it just... fits. On the other hand it completely fucks up the 20's vibe you get from the rest of the movie. Perhaps that was the intention of Luhrmann, saying that parties are parties, no matter when. The plotline
with Gatsby being a swindler for Mr. Wolfsheim
is a bit visible after a while in, although the ending
with Daisy killing the woman and Jay taking all the blame (and the revenge) on him.
is surprising.
My rating:
8/10

Movie + Year: Source Code (2011)
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0945513/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
IMDB score: 7.5
IMDB description: An action thriller centered on a soldier who wakes up in the body of an unknown man and discovers he's part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train.

My opinion: Amazing movie. It reminds me a bit of Groundhog Day, and the story is really intriguing. Go watch it, I recommend it big time!

My rating: 9/10

Movie + Year: Paranormal Activity 4 (2012)
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2109184
IMDB score: 4,4
IMDB description: It has been five years since the disappearance of Katie and Hunter, and a suburban family witness strange events in their neighborhood when a woman and a mysterious child move in.

My opinion: It sucks. There is absolutely no story progression. And the worst part was the ending, because where the fuck did all those demon bitches come from? Not many scares either, everything is predictable. Arguably the best part was the cute actress of the protagonist.

My rating: 3,0

Movie + Year: Lesbian Vampire Killers (2009)
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1020885/
IMDB score: 5,2
IMDB description: Their women having been enslaved by the local pack of lesbian vampires thanks to an ancient curse, the remaining menfolk of a rural town send two hapless young lads out onto the moors as a sacrifice.

My opinion: I went into this expecting a mindlessly retarded movie and was pleasantly surprised. Don't get me wrong, the movie is pretty stupid and cliché - but on a level where it's funny again. I mean, it's about lesbian vampires, who doesn't like that? It's thrash at it's best, and as a bonus there's not a single ugly chick. Great movie to watch with a bunch of friends and some beer!

My rating: 7,7

Movie + Year: Dredd (2012)
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1343727
IMDB score: 7,0
IMDB description: In a violent, futuristic city where the police have the authority to act as judge, jury and executioner, a cop teams with a trainee to take down a gang that deals the reality-altering drug, SLO-MO.

My opinion: Really good sci-fi action. I can only recommend this, there's suspense until the end. Well made, good cast, interesting storyline.

I'm doing a sorta movie night, so...





Movie + Year: I Am Number Four (2011)
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1464540/
IMDB score: 6,1
IMDB description: Aliens and their Guardians are hiding on Earth from intergalactic bounty hunters. They can only be killed in numerical order, and Number Four is next on the list. This is his story.

My opinion: Totally didn't know what to expect, found it on iMDB and watched it. It's a bit long but good, I like the plot and the whole run nigga run thing. It's a typical Michael Bay movie though, with lots of boom boom and bright colours. The ending is a bit of a cliffhanger which leaves it open for a sequel, but I hope they make one because I really want to see how 'Shakira', 'John' and Sam continue their journey. Also I hope he meets Sarah again.

My rating: 8,0

Movie + Year:  The Place Beyond the Pines (2012)
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1817273/
IMDB score: 7/5
IMDB description: A motorcycle stunt rider turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his lover and their newborn child, a decision that puts him on a collision course with an ambitious rookie cop navigating a department ruled by a corrupt detective.

My opinion: Wasn't really sure what to expect when I chose this movie to watch. I mainly chose it because I really liked Ryan Goslings' performance in Drive.
Whilest watching the movie I immediately knew that I made a good choice.
The cinematography is perfect, you get the perfect mood of this medium American town. To my surprise there are two lead characters (won't tell to much about that, don't want to spoil).
What I like about that is that they both have their own story, but they are also so much connected through the actions of the first lead characters.
Let me rephrase that again: You can see this movie as two small movies that are connected with the end and beginning of the two different lead characters. I never saw this in a movie before, and was really impressed in how they chose to realize this in the movie.
It's a good movie, there's no reason not to watch it.

My rating: 8.5

Movie + Year: Carrie (2013)
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1939659/
IMDB score: 6.3
IMDB description:A reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White, a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother, who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.

My opinion:Meh. Watched it in the cinema, 80% is just teen drama, the rest is mindless killing. Good acting and cast, but it's just a remake that was not needed.

My rating: 5/10 at best

Movie + Year:  We're the Millers (2013)
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1723121/?ref_=nv_sr_1
IMDB score: 7.1/10
IMDB description: A veteran pot dealer creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico.

My opinion: It's a weird movie, as it has some elements that it look family friendly, such as the big romantic plot, typical humorous antics (losing important shit constantly, awkard guy tries to impress a girl, but fails miserably), yet at the same time they throw in a metric tonne of cursewords (No 5 minutes without "fuck", "shit", "cock",...), a plot revolving around drug dealers, and a really weird sex scene.
But in the end, it's just another typical movie. Guy devises a plan, plan starts out good, plan goes horribly wrong (partly due to own doing), big emotional moment (where everyone who hated each other now likes each other), big internal revelations, and in the end the plan ends up fine.

My rating: 7/10 Cliche, but with some pretty hilarious situations.

Movie + Year: Predestination (2014)
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2397535
IMDB score: 7,5
IMDB description: The life of a time-traveling Temporal Agent. On his final assignment, he must pursue the one criminal that has eluded him throughout time.

My opinion: This movie just blew my fucking brain out. One of the best flicks I've seen in a long time, hands down. I can't talk too much about it, for reasons. Just do yourself a favor and watch it. Don't watch the trailer, just trust me on this one.

My rating: 9/10

Movie + Year: Poseidon Rex
IMDB:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2690160/
IMDB score: 2.6 (that's high, really)
IMDB description:A small, secluded island off the coast of Belize suddenly finds itself terrorized by a deadly predator from the planet's distant past when deep sea divers accidentally awaken an ancient evil.

My opinion:This movie is shit. Really. The acting is horrible, the special effects are special in the meaning of retarded, the plotline makes no sense, and it has cliches and silicones everywhere. The only good actor is the main protagonist, Brian Krause. Also known as Leo from Charmed, this guy has fallen low.
But that's the whole fucking point of the movie, isn't it? You don't watch this to see amazing special effects. You watch this so see shitty stuff. And you get it, by the buttload. Example: Boat is in the middle of the ocean, yet there is a jetty right behind it. And the coast guard's acting is so fucking wooden, he doesn't even need a boat.
My advice? Get drunk before putting this on, and don't watch it alone. That's the only way you'll get some fun out of it.

My rating:1/10 (this is a piece of shit. Fun to watch drunk with friends, but that's it)

Movie + Year: The Imitation Game (2014)
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2084970/
IMDB score: 8,2
IMDB description: During World War II, mathematician Alan Turing tries to crack the enigma code with help from fellow mathematicians.

My opinion: This is a great movie. Really enjoyed watching it. Normally I'm not for soppy drama movies, I like a happy ending where evil is dead and the good guys win. But I enjoyed sitting through this movie. Cumberbatch is playing an amazing role, incredible performance. Also, it's about the father of computers, what's not to like? Amazing story, interesting to watch him put together the machine.

My rating: 9/10 (Cumberbatch's acting is amazing, and the story's great too)

Movie + Year:
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2245084/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
IMDB score: 8.0
IMDB description: The special bond that develops between plus-sized inflatable robot Baymax, and prodigy Hiro Hamada, who team up with a group of friends to form a band of high-tech heroes.

My opinion: This was a pretty great movie. It's a typical Disney animation movie, everything's great, than bad, they beat the badguy, and then everything's awesome. But I enjoyed watching it, mainly due to the main characters. Baymax is hilariously done, with the awkward poses and lines done just long enough to be funny. So, story is pretty obvious and easy, but the characters are pretty damn funny.

My rating: 8/10
