End Of Watch

Filmul arata ca un documentar de fapt despre munca politistilor, o munca in care ai nevoie de curaj, daruire, sacrificiu... un film cu si despre politisti cu mult suspans si adrenalina cu momente reale care se intampla zi de zi in cartierele din orasele mari din America, jafuri, omoruri, scandaluri, petreceri cu droguri si urmariri periculoase. Chiar daca este putin plictisitor la inceput, el devine captivant destul de repede prin realismul actiunilor, fiind un film un pic atipic cand ai tot vazut filme cu politisti.
Se termina interesant, dar trist cu toate ca de pe parcurs iti ofera 'idei' despre cum s-ar termina, insa probabil ramai surprins (ca mine).

Nota: 9/10

End of Watch

In South Central Los Angeles, street cops Brian and Mike are partners - balls-out cowboys patrolling the streets as Latino gangs are in a power struggle with Blacks. Brian and Mike get lucky a couple of times, making big drug and human-trafficking busts, so a Mexican cartel orders their deaths. We meet Mike's pregnant wife (whom he married out of high school) and watch Brian's search for a soul mate. There are internal squabbles within the ranks of the LAPD and lots of squad-car conversation. Can the lads escape the cartel's murderous reach?

Come out and play

Cea mai pierdere de timp... sarac in personaje, putinele personaje joaca prost si nu atrag atentia cu nimic, decor saracacios, regia si interpretarea stupide. Subiectul destul de tampit, copii care omoara adulti, de parca oricati ar fi s-ar putea opune unor oameni mai destepti si mai impunatori fizic ca ei ... in antiteza cu finalul chiar unde personajul principal scapa de un numar mare de copii foarte usor. Finalul, o tampenie, barbatul e ucis de un politist de la paza de coasta, care si el e omorat de-un copil cu propria arma, apoi ei pun stapanire pe barca si pleaca .... penibilitate de film.
Poate ca ideea filmului era interzicerea avortului (femeia fiind gravida), deoarece in film apare jena de a omori un copil ...

Nota: 4/10

Beth (Vinessa Shaw) and Francis (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), a young married couple, are on holiday together when they venture to a beautiful, but highly remote, island. Beth is pregnant and the two are hoping to enjoy their last vacation before their baby is born. When they arrive, they notice that while there are plenty of children present, the adults all seem to be missing. Initially attributing this to the after effects of a recent festival, they quickly realize something far more sinister is afoot. The two will face terror and unsettling difficult decisions in their quest to make it off the island alive.

"Not every child is born good" - BULLSHIT!

The Internship

Filmul este amuzant cat ii permite, Vince Vaughn e printre preferatii mei la comedie, stilul lui de a vorbi mult si uneori fara rost il face un personaj simpatic :)) cu atat mai mult ca acum a fost si scenarist. Filmul e o publicitate continua pentru compania Google, in mare iti prezinta modul de lucru in cadrul companiei si multitudinea de elemente pe care majoritatea o stim (barul unde orice servesti e gratis, bicicletele colorate in culorile Google, birourile pline de culori). In conceptia mea, ideea filmului doreste sa evidentieze ca in orice companie, toti 'tocilarii' si workaholicii nu pot face fata fara "ceilalti": degeaba esti un geniu sclipitor daca o idee incredibila iti vine la o bere cu un prieten idiot. Filmul iti aduce zambetul pe buze la multe scene, dar pune in evidenta si rolul muncii in echipa fara de care nu rezisti intr-o companie, increderea in sine si curajul de a lupta pentru visul tau.
Puntea din actiunea filmului e in momentul in care Billy cauta de munca si tastand aiurea pe Google realizeaza faptul ca ar putea lucra acolo, ideea e slaba, puteau gasi ceva mult mai original pentru a realiza trecerea asta. Imediat dupa e si partea cu interviul, la fel de idiotic realizat ...

Nota: 8/10

The Internship

Billy (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Owen Wilson) are salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital world. Trying to prove they are not obsolete, they defy the odds by talking their way into a coveted internship at Google, along with a battalion of brilliant college students. But, gaining entrance to this utopia is only half the battle. Now they must compete with a group of the nation's most elite, tech-savvy geniuses to prove that necessity really is the mother of re-invention.


Filmul per total e ca o joaca de copii. Ca o tabara plina de aventuri, inceputul se aseamana foarte mult cu Harry Potter (Alegerea taberelor, statul la masa in cadrul factiunii). Divergent este prea mediatizat pentru ce arata, este foarte lung (140 de minute) in care totul este foarte previzibil, orice persoane desluseste usor urmatoarea miscare, in plus, nu pierzi nimic daca ajungi in ultimele 30 de minute din film, toata actiunea se petrece acolo (in afara de evolutia personajului principal pe parcurs, dar era previzibila si asta) cu o viteza prea mare, ca si cum ar realiza ca filmul e prea lung, hai sa-l finalizam rapid... Cel mai mult in acest film mi-a placut coloana sonora, fiind un ascultator de EDM am fost bucuros sa recunosc vocea perfecta pentru acest gen de muzica (Ellie Goulding) sau piese de la Zedd si M83. Scenariul si efectele vizuale au fost destul de ok tinand cont de faptul ca eu unul nu ma dau in vant dupa SF.uri. Am inteles ca trebuie sa vad si Hunger Games pentru ca se asemenea, vad apoi care-i mai bun :))

Nota: 8/10


Set in a futuristic dystopia where society is divided into five factions that each represent a different virtue, teenagers have to decide if they want to stay in their faction or switch to another - for the rest of their lives. Tris Prior makes a choice that surprises everyone. Then Tris and her fellow faction-members have to live through a highly competitive initiation process to live out the choice they have made. They must undergo extreme physical and intense psychological tests, that transform them all. But Tris has a secret that she is Divergent, which means she doesn't fit into any one group. If anyone knew, it would mean a certain death. As she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, this secret might help her save the people she loves... or it might destroy her.

Si gluma aparuta inevitabil pe internet

The Grand Budapest Hotel

Filmul este genul de comedie pe care multi nu o gusta (cand am iesit din sala un grup se dadea de toti peretii ca regreta filmul ales), cu umor de calitate care vine atunci cand e momentul, o veselie care o da usor in senil :)). Merge pe genul Feel-Good movie cu structura poveste in poveste, cu efecte foarte bune si muzica bine aleasa, actorii joaca destul de bine rolurile, actori foarte cunoscuti, dar cu roluri marunte si foarte amuzante (exemplu Bill Murray) cat sa-i puna in valoare. Decorurile de asemenea foarte ingrijite si bine alese, ies puternic in evidenta.
Actiunea se deruleaza foarte rapid, dar nu te lasa in urma daca pierzi un moment.

Nota: 10/10

Hotel Grand Budapest

GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune -- all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.

Roz, asa, simpatic :)) 

Dallas Buyers Club

Un film demn de Oscar/Globuri (ca deh, de aia a si luat premii) in care McConaughey interpreteaza foarte misto rolul unui bolnav de SIDA, de asemenea si Jared Leto in rolul lui de travestit, also sick. Filmul este o lectie despre viata, ambitie, prietenie si lupta cu o boala crunta, dar si cu sistemul medical american care-si cam facea de cap cum dorea. Este un film care poate fi recomandat si haterilor, celor care au o problema cu homosexualii/travestitii si tot ce tine de acest aspect pentru ca filmul nu pe asta pune accentul ci pe acea lupta cu boala si modul in care cei doi aleg sa-si construiasca viitorul constienti de boala pe care o au. Daca reusesti sa te pui in rolul personajului principal si sa "joci" viata in modul lui, you're cool !
Chiar daca filmul are 2 ore, te tine in scaun atent :D

Nota: 9/10
