Elizabeth:the Golden Age

Filed under: My reviews — Hodgepodge @ 5:34 pm

elizabeth-the-golden-age-12.jpg Now-a-days, new movies come out almost every weekend, but only a few of them are as well made and exciting as Elizabeth: the Golden Age. Cate Blanchett, Geoffrey Rush, and Clive Owen star in this tale of heartbreak and a country in turmoil. Although this is the sequel to Elizabeth, released in the late 1990’s, it is not too difficult to follow the plot even without having seen the first installment.

My review of “Who Killed The Electric Car?”

Who Killed the Electrical Car - Snapshot 1 Copyright Sony Pictures

This is the first review of a documentary movie here but I felt compelled to write it after watching it last weekend. The movie tells a sad story about the rather unusually short life cycle of this particular vehicle – EV1 by General Motors. It is probably the first car in history that was honored with a funeral ceremony attended by a crowd of loving owners. They intended to keep the car in production after the manufacturer announced shutting it down and, ultimately, they failed.

You’ll see some familiar names – Mel Gibson and Tom Hanks among them- speak approvingly of the car and you’ll hear stories about long waiting lists and lessees forced to give the cars back that sounds like a car salesman’s dream. Yet after 9 years after production began the only car left is in an automotive museum and it is said to be specifically “disabled” by the manufacturer.

If you were asking yourself “why” some twenty times during watching this 40 min movie, you are not alone.

My Review of Paradise directed by Mary Agnes Donoghue

Filed under: My reviews — movie_critic @ 12:28 pm

Starring Don Johnson, Melanie Griffith, Elijah Wood and Thora Birch

I’ve found this little gem of a movie by accident. I think, mostly due to the fact that it featured 10-year old Elijah Wood, than anything else. But after watching it I’ve come to really appreciate this unpretentious little drama as one of those movies of the earlier days which you can watch over and over and never tired of it, because of the good story and great actors.

My Review of Scoop directed by Woody Allen

Filed under: My reviews — movie_critic @ 12:05 pm

Starring Scarlett Johansson, Woody Allen, Hugh Jackman

One of the coolest, most delightful movies I have had a pleasure to see in a long time! An unbelievable story of a ghost of a journalist who is ready to pursue a sensational story beyond his grave is turning into a very funny, sparkling and sizzling spectacle where Scarlett Johansson has a chance to dazzle us again, with plenty of help from Woody Allen and Hugh Jackman.

Shaken or Stirred? The different James Bond.

Filed under: My reviews — techie @ 12:17 am

OK, this has got to be the best line from Casino Royale, the new Bond movie released this weekend: James Bond (Daniel Craig) is ordering his vodka.

Waiter: ”Shaken or stirred, sir?”

Bond: “Do I look like I give a damn?”
