It’s time for my movie and TV-series review 🙂
I haven’t been doing this in months and there are just too many movies and TV-Series to reviewed, so I will just do a VERY short review, I only share my thought on the movies/TVSeries. I will give links to a better review to each one of those movies.
#1 The Delivery man
To my surprise, I really like this movie. I am not much of Vince Vaughn fan…in fact I don’t really think he is funny or a good actor. The story was also a bit far-fetched, a man with hundreds of children to his countless donation to sperm bank. But I really like the family feeling of this movie. It really was a nice family movie that shows how children could change even the most unorganized man.
#2 Fatal Frame
I played the game once and it was quite scary…so when I heard that it will made into live action, I felt like I have to watch it. Unfortunately, I didn’t think it was that good…in fact it was a bit weird. It’s not really a horror movie, more like a thriller. It was interesting but not something to look forward for, in my opinion.
#3 Sherlock – The Abominable Bride
To be honest, I am beginning to feel tired with the way Moffat wrote the story. In fact, in the last series (series 3) my favorite episode was The Sign of Three, the story was written by 3 writers not only Moffat.
I really really really wish that series 4 will be as interesting as series 1 again…a focused story.
#4 Doctor Who Series 9
Here’s another ALL OVER THE PLACE story by Moffat. I miss the way Russel T Davies wrote the story…they were simple and memorable. Don’t get me wrong, I love complex stories BUT not as a continuum…some complex stories will be great but too much makes it feel like we lost the sense of the story.
Sorry for all Moffat fans…but I feel like Doctor Who needs a new writer that can make it memorable again. I don’t even remember a single episode from this series.
I will still watch Doctor Who because I love the series (and I also love Peter Capaldi’s Doctor) but a fresh air will be great.
Too bad for Ryo, Kamiki really outshone him even though Ryo was the lead.
It was a fun and entertaining drama but I feel like the ending was a bit weak. I enjoy the bit of history in the series. If you wonder what the story is, it’s about two samurai who accidentally travel through time to present day.
#6 The Bletchey Circle Series 1
I forgot where I first read the review, it was somewhere in my friend’s blog. It immediately intrigued me. The story is about four former code breakers at Bletchey Park who had become normal people, housewives and workers. One of them asked her friends to help stop a serial killer by using the pattern that he did when killing the victims.
It was very interesting and I like how the show was mostly about smart women. Love it and really want to see series 2.
#7 Fawlty Tower Series 1 and 2
Someone told me about this series (I forgot who) after knowing that I enjoyed Monty Phyton. The series was so old and the joke was actually a bit out of date and predictable…however the delivery was so good that it still made me laugh so loud. I really think that this is the kind of comedy that will last no matter which year you watch it.
#8 Hotel Transylvania
For me, there’s nothing special about the animation. Too simple and nothing really new that can impress me. It was just okay and I don’t think I will see it again in the future.
#9 Kaguya Hime Monogatari
The drawing was awesome, the color was beautiful, the story was heart-warming.
It’s another version of the famous Japanese Folk-tale about a princess found inside a bamboo. She belongs to the people in the moon. The message that I got from the movie was that wealth and the live the rich people don’t always make someone happy…freedom was the one that can keep someone happy.
#10 Exodus – God and King
My husband loves war and colossal movies. I watched this because of him plus I also like Christian bale. the story was about Moses but told in a different way…but I don’t know which version it is. It’s not Qu’ran version and I don’t think it’s also bible version ( but I never read bible so I might be wrong there).
I enjoyed it but not that much.
#11 Starwars – the Force Awaken
I never finished the last trilogy because they were so boring and not up to the old trilogy. I Love the old trilogy so much but I dislike the new trilogy. I wasn’t sure whether I will like this new Starwars or not because of that latest trilogy…but I am soooo happy that I love this one. It felt like it had returned to its root…no more boring story. I can’t wait to see the next one 🙂
#12 The Possession
I never seen the trailer but one of my friends own the DVD so I decided to watch it because the poster was interesting. I am glad to say I like it (I would have liked it more if the ending was not typical American horror movies – a happy ending). What I like the most about this movie is I finally got to see Jewish exorcism. I have seen the Christian and the Muslim ones.
#13 Django Unchained
Happy Thursday thirteen everyone 🙂
