The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

With a excellent filming and direction by David Fincher, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" captures the brutality and captivation of the that brings it's witty plot, being a highly faithful movie of the source material of Stieg Larsson's novel. In the performances, is pretty compelling and terrific especially Rooney Mara that is relatively perfect thanks to felt more self-conscious in the role, then Craig still Craig, shine like other movies. But a use of flashbacks made the movie a little confused, but with this is more easy to solve the mystery, making the mistake into a technique which benefit the movie; however, the movie lose points every time this movie is nothing more than a slightly (just ever so slightly) inferior version of the Swedish films. Fincher is able to make a unique and fascinating remake, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" is proof of that capacity exists in his direction

The Artist
The Artist (2011)
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A very lovely and crowd pleasing tribute about the silent cinema that it was very successfully made in very aspects: the soulful and original plot about the advent of the talkies will sound the death knell for Valentin career and see him fall into oblivion, Miller as a major movie stardom awaits in the talked-cinema and how the destiny unify their lives forever. The style who was made and it's cinematography, is impeccably mounted that that makes the film unique to offer more that the enough the nostalgic of the movies of the 20's. With a witty direction and script by Hazanavicius and the magnificent stellar of Dujardin with Bejo and a selected casting, "The Artist" is a marvelous movie that brings with a clever and joyous way a tribute of silent cinema.

Taken 2
Taken 2 (2012)
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The thrills and surprises of the original hit are largely bereft in this inferior sequel of "Taken", it also became soulless between the relationship of the leads, the high-octane action scenes are bad filmed but also Olivier Megaton in the camera work of the car chasing sequences is pretty fresh, so the cinematography is a uneven result compared to the majesty of the first. However, "Taken 2" maintains a few aspects of the predecessor. The story stills freshly and fast-paced although the 1 hr. 32 min. pass too fast for been memorable, the act still compelling and now Neeson act didn't overshadow the rest, leaving show off the female cast led by Grace and Janssen. Although "Taken 2" is an inferior sequel and there are inevitable comparisons aside the first "Taken", but as an only action flick is an very passable thrill ride.

From Russia With Love
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

"From Russia With Love" keeps the grace and tongue-in-cheek stylishness from it's predecessor, "Dr. No", the new in this movie: has an good-looking action scenes that make me think how the director made it in that years, it results from both realistic and exaggerated. Also the movie get a more serious sense as the briskly-paced script (an another faithful adaptation of Fleming's book) and a razor-sharp plot about the Cold War conspiracy, enjoyable theme at issue in those years in the action-thriller movies. Connery still shining as Bond, Daniela Bianchi is an amazing Bond girl, and the team who make up the bad guys help to make "From Russia With Love" is a very good sequel that success better than its predecessor.

Casino Royale
Casino Royale (2006)
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

After the sillies and gadgetry of recent bond films and the goofy i-don't-know-the-cast-except-Woody-Allen 1967 version. "Casino Royale" is a reinvention and renovation of the 007 franchise, with Craig assumes the role formerly as the new Bond that's more realistic and human, the new and better reinvention of 007. Green's act of Vesper, marked her as one of the best performances of the Bond girls. Dench still acting like a jewel as M, and Mikkelsen are a great villain. It shows a seriousness during the movie, with intense action scenes, typical of the director of Goldeneye, Martin Campbell. "Casino Royale" is a smart, stylish and thrilling reboot of the Bond franchise, with an haunted and intense brand new 007.
