The Possession of Michael King

The Possession of Michael King

(2014)
9 days ago via Movies on iPhone

It had some good ideas and a different plot from other possession movies, and even though they were better than I expected, somehow there was something missing in the whole formula of the movie because they had a plethora of ideas that were as effective to me. There were some scary scenes and there was also some gore, but they weren't that impactful to me. Therefore, it was on par as to what I expected but I was hoping to get more scared or creeped out by it.

If I Stay

If I Stay

(2014)
10 days ago via Movies on iPhone

This movie looked like on the trailers like a great tearjerker movie with a very moving story, but once you get to see the big picture from beginning to end its nothing like that. First off, the story is narrated going from memories to the present, which wasn't very effective when cutting short the most dramatic scenes. Also, the whole movie felt kind of absurd because the whole time she's thinking about his boyfriend instead of his family she has left and her career, which bothered me. Because, of what I got from the movie I felt like her boyfriend wasn't worth her whole life decision. Which seemed that it all depended on him. Also the ending wasn't satisfactory to me, but I won't spoil it. Therefore, I was disappointed with how the movie turned out to be, because I expected something more melodramatic and touching about wether to live or die and see her go through her life, instead of being all about her boyfriend. Moreover, the acting was good and even though Chloe Grace Moretz wasn't as his best as always, the one that stood out the most was Mireille Enos, who was pretty great and to be was the part of the movie. Overall, to be honest, in the end it all felt a little manipulative, agreeing with a review I read earlier, and disappointing as to how the movie went from beginning to end in a not very good narrative.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

I was very excited for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, because we were finally getting a sequel after almost a decade, to an awesome movie. And so I already knew that maybe the look of it would not be as original and groundbreaking as the first Sin City, but it was worth to check out. The movie itself was very good, and it was great to see many characters come back to the big screen after so many years of waiting, and although the crafting of the movie was not as exciting as the first one and the editing felt awkward at times, it still was entertaining and really cool this second round. There were a few characters that were a stand out between all the star studded cast, and those were Eva Green's and once again Mickey Rourke's. Green was as devilish as she knows best, and with those green eyes gazing at the camera it was dreamy enough to fall for her character even though her intentions wasn't the best and also she was in most of the best looking visual effects. On the other side, Rourke was incredibly good again, with his character which probably once the most likable one and also the one that gave you a smile on your face just by being himself on full display. Moreover, this time the three short stories didn't felt as thrilling as the ones from the first movie, but they still managed to entertain me and at least we finally got a conclusion for the story of The Yellow Bastard. Also, it was very cool that the movie served as both prequel and sequel to the first sin City because we get to explore both sides of that world. Overall, the movie wasn't as good as the fist one but it was very entertaining and still amazed me how beautiful and mesmerizing some scenes looked with that comic book style it characterized Sin City.

This was a very special and impressive film. Special because it really captured all those years-to be exact 12 years- as real as possible to what most of us have went through or maybe just relate to some occasions. And impressive because to continue with a project like this for so many years and try to achieve a coherent story that never felt apart but instead became stronger and as real and are as possible. Moreover, the acting was good but not as spectacular as I was hoping for, but at least it was natural enough to be credible, while the adult actors (Ethan Hawke & Patricia Arquette) were really good and enacted some of the most dramatic and strong performances. I do have to say that it was a really strange movie in a way, because somehow it flowed so nicely and I even sometimes didn't realize that I was looking at the same couple of actors grow up on-screen, it just seemed so strange but at the same time incredibly amazing. But more importantly, even though the movie runs for almost 3 hours, it never gets boring or tiring, but it goes by so fast and smoothly. However, I did expect something a little more different story wise, because sometimes it was hard for me to really know what was going on inside Mason's head for example, and that was kind of a let down. But overall, it sure is one of those movies that you have to experience and appreciate all the work behind it because movies like this are extremely rare and this one is pretty unique in its own way.

This was a very different movie from anything I've seen before. It was all shot with just Tom Hardy onscreen and everything happened inside his car. The premise was basic, but the way it developed onscreen and with an excellent performance by Tom Hardy, it truly was amazing to watch his character trying to manage everything at once while, just to make everything right. However, I do have to say that it was a little slow paced and it might be boring for some people, it was all about less is more, but great in humanistic storytelling and an outstanding cinematography.
