Movie Ratings and Reviews

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason
½

Whilst the first movie pretty much had me laughing throughout the whole movie, the second one only really had one scene that made me laugh.
This movie was more serious than the first one, but at the same time it was making fun of the seriousness. It didn't really work for me.

Gray Matters
Gray Matters(2007)

Entertaining to watch, but very easily forgotten afterwards.

Girl Most Likely

This movie was pretty much forgotten even before the end credits started rolling. I can hardly remember what it was about. I just remember not enjoying it.

Bridget Jones's Diary

I've seen this movie so many times that I've lost count. Still, I never get bored. It manages to make me laugh every time and it always manages to get me in a better mood. This is a world-class comedy that manages to do what it's supposed to do - make you laugh and keep you entertained.

You Again
You Again(2010)
½

You Again was a really entertaining comedy. It was easy to sit through it and it hooked me from the beginning until the very end. But it didn't quite stay with me for as long as I'd hoped it would.

Boys and Girls

Entertaining for the moment. But quite easily forgotten after having seen it.

Meet My Valentine

I really liked this movie. I was hooked from the beginning and it managed to guide me through until the very end.

Cake
Cake(2006)

Entertaining whilst watching it. But very easily forgotten afterwards.

A Girl Like Her
½

This whole movie lies in the hands of the last ten minutes. The first 80 minutes were kind of boring, even though they weren't boring enough for me to actually turn it off. The last ten minutes were gripping on a whole other level. Half the grade is just because of the end of the movie. Because by the end I was blown away, even if it took me 80 minutes to get there.

Bad Teacher
Bad Teacher(2011)

Bad Teacher was somewhat entertaining. Easy to sit through and a good movie for killing some time. The comedy was a bit too black for my liking. I don't really know why any actor would want to be in a movie like this, but it was still okay.

Four Christmases

It's entertaining whilst watching it. I found some of the humour to be a bit too silly for my liking. But it's easy to sit through. It's a sweet christmas comedy that's mostly there to keep you entertained. Won't make you think much when watching it or afterwards.

A Cookie Cutter Christmas

This is a sweet romantic christmas comedy. It's a movie that you can see many times. It's entertaining for the moment but it won't leave much of an afterthought.

The Song
The Song(2014)

The Song is a romantic musical drama. There are two things that are very important to make a movie like this work. The first one is that there's good chemistry between the two main actors - Alan Powell and Ali Faulkner - that you believe in them as people.
The second one is that you like the music just as much as the people in the movie do.
The problem for me is that I didn't believe in the characters. I didn't believe in the love story. Things happened way too fast for me to see the love they once had. I also didn't really like the music in the movie which kind of destroyed the whole experience for me.
I'm kind of disappointed. I was hoping for so much more.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
½

I didn't remember much from this movie now when I saw it a second time. This is the worst one out of the first five movies. I didn't find it to be as exciting or thrilling as the others. I just found myself being distracted, not really being able to concentrate on the actual movie.

Bad Moms
Bad Moms(2016)
½

This was an enjoyable comedy about motherhood. I felt that this movie focused a little bit too much on Mila Kunis and a bit too little on the other "moms" in the movie. The humour is also a bit too dark for my liking. There were never any moments when I actually "laughed out loud" but it was still an entertaining comedy.
It was easy to sit through it, I was certainly in a better mood after having seen it and I thought it had a sweet message throughout it all.

Nerve
Nerve(2016)
½

I both loved the book that this movie is based on and the actual movie. The book and the movie are very different from each other. The main storyline is the same but they've changed all the dares and a lot of the plot is different.
I actually preferred some of the changes in the movie. I thought the dares were more appropriate and better in a way. They started off nice and became meaner and meaner in a way that they didn't really in the book seeing as they were almost mean from the very beginning.
I sat on the edge of my seat throughout the whole movie. It was filmed in a spectacular way so I, myself, felt like a Watcher when watching it. I was blown away once the end credits started rolling. This was a lot better than I ever could have anticipated.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

This is my favourite movie in the Harry Potter-franchise along with the first one. The beginning wasn't that strong, but the rest of it is so good that it doesn't really matter. It's exciting and it has a bit of everything. Most certainly entertaining.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

It started a little dreary and I felt that the beginning wasn't as strong as the first two movies. It was easy to sit through it and everything, it just lacked that little extra that I was hoping for.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

I really like the beginning of this movie but then I started to get a little disappointed. I remembered it being more exciting than this. But I felt that some things went a bit too fast and that the movie was a bit too hasty towards the end.

The Rewrite
The Rewrite(2015)

This is just one of those movies. It's easy to sit through and it's entertaining whilst watching it but it's easily forgotten afterwards. I usually like movies that Hugh Grant are in, even if I'm starting to get tired of him as an actor. Seeing as he always plays the same type of person with the same type of accent. But it's great when you want to kill some time.

Sex Tape
Sex Tape(2014)
½

This was kind of okay. I could watch it without problems. It's the type of movie where you can fiddle with your phone at the same time without missing much.
The movie is great if you want to kill some time. But not much else. t's not really my type of humour but somewhat entertaining nonetheless.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

This is one of my favourites in the Harry Potter-franchise. It's easy to sit through it and I feel entertained thrughout it all. It manages to keep me hooked from the beginning until the very end.

Blind Dating
Blind Dating(2007)

This is a silly and weird and kind of boring comedy. But it wasn't silly or weird or boring enough for me to want to turn it off. Because despite all this I still wanted to know what would happen next.
But it isn't a movie I would recommend and I probably won't see it again.

Laws of Attraction
½

I have a hard time watching movies with Pierce Brosnan. I just keep wondering if his character is supposed to be Irish, or if he just happens to be useless at doing an American accent.
Aside from that I quite enjoyed this movie. It was easy to sit through it. It wasn't the type of comedy that made me laugh, but it was definitely entertaining and it managed to keep me entertained throughout.

The Choice
The Choice(2016)
½

The book that this movie is based on wasn't as good as the other books by Nicholas Sparks that I've read but I still felt kind of disappointed with the movie. Not because it didn't live up to the book but because it didn't live up to all the other movies in the same genre.
The whole point with movies like these are that there should be chemistry between the two main characters. Without chemistry the movie doesn't work and this movie lacked chemistry.
Things happened too slow in the beginning, and then it happened all too fast. There was never really anything that hooked me to the screen. Which is a shame.

Just Wright
Just Wright(2010)

It felt like there was two different stories in this movie and I felt that they should have just stuck with one. It felt like the people who produced this movie thought that you couldn't make a movie with just one of the storylines so they needed both of them. But I just felt distracted throughout the film, there was nothing there that hooked me to the screen and there wasn't much of an afterthought once the end credits started rolling.

Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story

I'm not really a horse fan - I'm not even an animal fan. I saw this movie mainly for Dakota Fanning but there was never really a hook. It felt like I was forcing myself to watch this movie until the end, not that I wanted to.

My Future Boyfriend

This was an incredibly weird movie. It might have been an entertaining romantic comedy on paper, but not so much in theory. Everything felt way too exaggerated. I managed to sit through it but that's it.

The Fundamentals of Caring

I really enjoyed this movie. I was hooked to the screen from the very beginning. It was cozy to watch. It had humour and romance and adventure. Pretty much everything that you need in a feel-good comedy-drama. This was better than I could have expected.

Suicide Squad

I didn't really have any expectations for this movie at all. All I'd seen was the poster of all these weird-looking characters. My friends whom had really high expectations ended up not enjoying the movie. I, however, had no expectations at all and ended up thinking it was quite okay. It was entertaining even though I didn't quite understand what it was about. I enjoyed the music and thought it fit perfectly with the scenes in the movie.

Avatar
Avatar(2009)

I was really hoping I was going to enjoy this. It's one of those big sci-fi movies that everyone talks about and it's the type of movie that I could of enjoyed. But there was never anything that hooked me to the screen. There was never anything pining for me to keep watching it. It was way too long, it never ended and hardly anything happened in it.

Spirited Away
½

Spirited Away wasn't quite what I'd been expecting but it was entertaining nonetheless. I managed to sit through it but it's not really a movie that stays on my mind for long afterwards. I remember the plot and everything that happens in it but there just isn't much of an afterthought.

Miss You Already

Miss You Already is a story about friendship and love. It's a story about cancer and family.
I was hooked from the very first scene, it was easy to sit through it. I wanted to sit through it. I wanted to know what would happen next. It was refreshing to see Drew Barrymore in something that isn't a romantic comedy and I really liked her in this. She's absolutely beautiful in this movie and she managed to show a side that I hadn't quite seen before.
Toni Collette was great as the friend with cancer trying to find ways to cope with it all.
This movie is not just a cancer movie. It's not just tears. It manages to show the bright side as well. I really enjoyed it and I recommend it for everyone who is in the mood for something cheerful and entertaining that isn't a comedy.

The Bourne Ultimatum

I can't actually remember anything from this movie now that it's gone a week or so since I saw it. I remember not enjoying it at all and not actually understanding anything I was watching. It was a struggle to sit through it and it was a relief once I finally saw the end credits rolling.

The Bourne Supremacy

The first ten - fifteen - minutes of the movie showed a lot of potential for being a great movie. Then something happened that kind of destroyed the movie for me. I just didn't find it very exciting and I wasn't very into it. I was kind of disappointed after the first fifteen minutes. The movie could have been a lot better.

The Bourne Identity

The Bourne Identity is an exciting and thrilling thriller in the moment. I liked the story between Bourne and Marie and I liked the scenes of them together. I enjoyed the movie, but I was still kind of hoping for something more. The whole sitting-at-the-edge-of-your-seat feeling was missing, which is a shame. Otherwise it was worthwhile whilst watching it but it didn't stay with me too long afterwards.

Warcraft
Warcraft(2016)
½

I was already tired before I saw this movie at the cinemas. I was kind of hoping that this was going to be a good action movie that would cheer me up and make me less tired. Instead I found myself close my eyes three times during the movie. I was kind of hoping that I was watching the movie from the sofa at my boyfriend's instead of at the cinema's so I could have fallen asleep with good conscience.
I felt that the 3D effects were a lot worse in this movie compared to other movies that I have seen in 3D. I hardly noticed that I was seeing it in 3D at all. I usually like to see a movie in 3D if I have the opportunity, but it felt like there were only two scenes that were actually in 3D in this movie, so it didn't really feel worth it this time.
I'm sorry to all World of Warcraft fans. The best part of this movie was the orch-baby.

Me Before You

I really enjoyed this movie. It might not be as good as the book, but it's difficult to be that good. Although the movie still managed to be very close to the book. I'm so thankful that Jojo Moyes both wrote the book and the script because without her this could have been a flop. But thanks to her this movie wasn't a flop, it was actually really good.
It was heartbreaking just like the book. The chemistry between Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin was great. I walked out of the cinemas a happy person. Because I had just read a book which I loved. And now I had seen the movie adaptation and I didn't have any complaints. Thank you Jojo Moyes.

Tomorrowland
Tomorrowland(2015)

I quite enjoyed this movie to be honest. It's not amazing but it's definitely not bad. It might be a movie that you watch when you need to kill time but it managed to keep me entertained throughout the whole movie.

People Places Things
½

I don't really know what message this movie was supposed to send out. But I enjoyed it. It's not really a comedy but it still felt cosy to watch, it was entertaining. It managed to keep me hooked to the screen from beginning to end, although it lacked a certain wanted aftertaste.

Million Dollar Arm

I found the first half of the movie to be incredibly boring. The other half was better. But I can't say that this movie leaves any aftertaste.
I was hoping to feel something afterwards but I didn't. I was hoping to see more progress between the players. Because now I never really rooted for anyone, I didn't feel any excitement seeing as I hardly ever got to see them play.
I was hoping this was going to be a mixture between Bend It Like Beckham and The Blindside but now it just ended up being mediocre.

Now You See Me 2
½

Now You See Me 2 was a little worse than the first movie but not much. It still kind of manages to stay at the same level.
It took too long until the movie hooked me, in the beginning I felt quite bored and I wasn't really focused.
It took until the last half an hour when I started to feel hooked to the screen, but before then I felt a little distracted.

The Dressmaker

The movie was a lot better than the book which I appreciated seeing as I didn't enjoy the book at all.
There were things in the book that I hadn't quite understood, but when seeing the movie I understood them better.
I managed to sit through it, I was never bored, I might have been slightly entertained but it's not really a movie that I'm going to remember for very long afterwards.

A Christmas Detour

This movie doesn't bring much new to the table, but it's cosy, nostalgic and enchanting. It most certainly keeps you entertained while it lasts.

Thanks For Sharing

I liked the storyline of this movie, but sometimes I felt like the characters didn't take the subject as seriously as they should have which made it quite confusing to watch. Because I felt that there was a lot I didn't quite understand.
I felt that some things went a little too fast anthere was never really anything hooking me to the screen.

Tiger Eyes
Tiger Eyes(2013)

It's usually a plus when the person who wrote the book also writes the screenplay of the movie. The movie usually ends up being very true to the book then.
I absolutely loved the book, in every way possible and I really had good hopes for the movie when I found out that Judy Blume not only wrote the book but also wrote the screenplay.
There was a lot I recognised in the movie from having read the book. Lines and scenery that were the same. But I felt that the characters and the actors weren't quite the way I imagined when reading the book.
I don't really know what was wrong with this movie. If it was the screenplay or the acting or maybe a bit of both. Because it felt like the actors were only really reading from a script, not much acting at all. And acting is something that is needed in a movie like this with a story like this. Because I couldn't feel any emotion. I needed more depth, more sadness. I needed raw emotion and I never really felt it until the last ten minutes of the movie. I needed more. The way I felt when reading the book. Maybe this movie had been better with other actors. Maybe it had been better with another script. But it definitely could have been better.

A Gift of Miracles
½

This movie started rather boring, quite tiresome, but then it gradually got better. It made me want to see how it would end but nothing more than that. There was a lack of suspense. I needed something stronger, holding me to the screen, but I couldn't find any.

Now You See Me

To me it felt like Now You See Me didn't really have a storyline like most movies. It didn't have a red thread or a beginning, middle or end like you're used to. It just felt like it kept going without it really having a goal, without it leading anywhere, but it managed to be entertaining nonetheless.

Deadpool
Deadpool(2016)
½

I did manage to stay awake during this movie. but I think that was more due to the fact that there were a lot of action scenes than them actually being any good.
I was kind of expecting the movie to be in chronological order and it's possible that the movie would have been better if it had been. I didn't really see the chemistry between Ryan Reynolds and Morena Baccarin. In fact I found their relationship kind of unrealistic.
All in all, I managed to stay awake durng the whole movie, but that's just about it.

Mother's Day
Mother's Day(2016)

Mother's Day was an okay comedy. It was entertaining, it never bored me. I would have liked more stories intertwining with each other like other similar movies - Valentine's Day, New Year's Eve, Love Actually - but otherwise it was good. Although I did feel that it didn't quite have a beginning, middle or end the way that I thought it would have. It just felt like it kept going somewhere without you quite knowing where it was going or heading. It was like the whole movie was the middle, it just lacked a beginning and an end.

The Huntsman: Winter's War
½

It was a while since I saw the first movie - Snow White and the Huntsman - I can't really remember what I thought of it. But something tells me that I preferred this one. It wasn't amazing, but it was definitely not bad. It managed to entertain me from the beginning until the end and the 3D effects were really good.

The 5th Wave
The 5th Wave(2016)

This movie stopped showing at the cinemas only two days before I finished reading the book. I was so disappointed, it only showed at the cinemas in Sweden for a month. Although now I can kind of understand why.
It doesn't seem like the two other books in this series are going to turn into movies in contrast to a lot of other trilogies in this genre.
The book was good, but I didn't really enjoy it as a movie. I never quite felt hooked to the screen the way I wanted to. Things happened too fast, there wasn't any chemistry between the actors and I just felt that I had to force myself to watch it until the end rather than wanting to.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2
½

I saw the first movie two days before I saw this one - just to refresh my memory a little - and I'm glad I did. There are a lot of minor details in this movie that referrs to the first one, that you might not comprehend as much if it was years since you saw it last. I felt that I could enjoy this movie a lot more, having the first movie very fresh in my mind which I liked.
It wasn't the type of comedy where you laugh out loud, but it was definitely entertaining and it always managed to keep me hooked to the screen.

Room
Room(2015)
½

Wow! That's all I can say. Wow! First of all, the movie is incredibly true to the book. Thanks to Emma Donoghue who both wrote the actual book and the script of the movie.
Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay are amazing as Ma and Jack. It felt like I'd held my breath for the whole entire movie and could finally let it go once the end credits started rolling.
By the end I was completely blown away. By the acting, by how true to the book it actually was, by the emotions. There is not even a little microscopic part of me that is disappointed having seen this movie after having read the book. They are both equally as good and they are both just as much deserving of great response.

The Divergent Series: Allegiant

After having read the book I felt like I didn't recognise anything when watching the movie. I kind of felt cheated on. The images that I had in my head when reading the book was nothing like this. I had a hard time even enjoying the movie because I felt that it was so different to what I had imagined. Which is a shame.

How To Be Single
½

This movie is actually based on a book. The book was amazing - funny, witty and entertaining. Even before I read the book I kind of knew that the movie was going to be very different to the book and it was. There wasn't much from the book that was actually in the movie, seeing as they'd changed the names of all the characters except one. In this case it was a good thing. I didn't have a problem seperating the book from the movie, I was never disappointed. I was actually quite entertained, I honestly quite enjoyed this.

The Danish Girl

The Danish Girl is magical. I was all over the place after having seen this. There aren't many movies like these. Every single scene, every single breath, every single facial expression of this movie is so well thought-out, into the tiniest microscopic detail that I can't help feeling blown away by every single scene of this movie.
Alicia Vikander was very well deserved of her Academy award. The first Swede to win an Academy award since Ingrid Bergman.
Both Alicia Vikander and Eddie Redmayne did an incredible job in this movie. This is a movie about love and sorrow. It's about a man realising that he isn't comfortable in his body, and knowing that your wife is suffering. Having to watch her suffer whilst you're trying to figure out who you are. It's also about a woman who's married to a man who doesn't want to be a man anymore. Having to see your husband be confused with his identity, knowing that it's hurting you but you still love him too much to let him go.
I am mesmerised. This is a movie to see once, and then see it again. I am so happy to see movies like these. Movies that make you hold your breath. Movies that are still etched in your skin two days later. Movies where you afterwards feel: wow! How can someone make me feel this way, and if one person can make me feel like this after a movie, why can't everyone?

Ride Along 2
Ride Along 2(2016)
½

Hmm... I don't really know. It's supposed to be a comedy but the last scene was the only scene that really made me laugh. But it was okay. I didn't fall asleep. I was awake from the beginning until the end, but I can't say that my life is better or worse after having seen it. There's not much of the movie that I actually remember.

The Revenant
The Revenant(2015)

I'm sad to say that I didn't feel the same way about this movie, the way that everyone else seems to be feeling. I can't remember anything that happened. For me it's just blank. I'm glad Leonardo DiCaprio won an Oscar for his role in this movie. It was a different role for him and he really deserved it. But I prefered to sleep on my boyfriend's shoulder whilst watching the movie, than actually watching it. It felt like I slept for hours, when I think it only really was a few minutes, or seconds, because when I opened my eyes I couldn't really remember anything that had happened in the movie. I wish it had had a bigger impact on me, but sadly it didn't.

Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs(2015)

It wasn't quite as good as I thought it would be but it still managed to be entertaining. I pretty much only saw the movie because of Kate Winslet and she was definitely one of the better parts of the movie. It did end a little abrupt and I felt like I needed a few more answers but otherwise it was a quite good movie.

Griffin and Phoenix
½

When I first saw the movie a few years ago I thought that it was only the first ten minutes that were hard to get into. Now when I saw the movie again I realised that it was a lot harder for me to get into. I felt that I never really got into it and that the emotional interactions between Amanda Peet and Dermot Mulroney only really began when the movie was about to end. Which is a shame. I remembered the final scene as a big emotional tearfest, sadly I didn't quite feel that way this time.

The Romantics
½

The Romantics is a romantic drama about love and revenge and friendship. I really enjoyed it to be honest.

Mystic Pizza
Mystic Pizza(1988)

Mystic Pizza is a movie about friendship and love. It managed to keep you hooked to the screen whilst watching it, but might not be too memorable afterwards.

A Good Year
A Good Year(2006)

If it wasn't for the title or the movie poster I probably would have seen this movie sooner.
It's a good storyline and an okay movie. I never felt the urge to turn it off, but there's still something missing. There needs to be something more to keep me really hooked to the screen. Even if I didn't feel the urge to turn it off I wouldn't really say that I was hooked.
I needed more backstory between Russell Crowe and Marion Cotillard, so I could believe in their chemistry more. Which I didn't, now.

Remember Sunday

I really liked the storyline of Remember Sunday. It tells a sweet story that needed to be told. Although I felt that a few scenes were unrealistic, I felt that the movie wasn't emotional enough. I wanted more emotion. More sorrow. I felt that I didn't always believe in the characters enough to enjoy this movie more. It was enjoyable whilst watching it, but not more than that.

The Sweetest Thing

I thought this movie started a little silly, then it got better, then came an extremely silly scene that I don't see the point in whatsoever, then it got better, then silly again.
This is an okay comedy, but the sad part is that it would have been a lot better if only they'd taken away all of the silly scenes and kept the pure and genuine comedy.

I Believe in Unicorns
½

I Believe in Unicorns was a very short movie, but it didn't feel too short. It felt just enough. I like movies with mysterious titles. Titles that you can't really explain or a title that comes from a line that is said maybe once in the movie and you have to listen realy carefully to actually hear it.
I Believe in Unicorns is a beautiful movie. The imagery is perfect. Watching this movie is kind of like sleepwalking through a dream sequence.
I have seen similar dramas that are a lot slower than this one, but on the other hand I have seen similar dramas that are faster. It's better than average but still not quite good enough.

Straight A's
Straight A's(2013)
½

I don't really know what to say about this movie. I liked the soundtrack, I didn't quite like the acting. There were scenes that I quite enjoyed, then there were scenes that I didn't enjoy at all.
I didn't believe in Ryan Phillippe and Luke Wilson as brothers, although I did believe in the history between Ryan Phillippe and Anna Paquin.
Anna Paquin wasn't exactly as good as she was in The Piano, although it's difficult to be that good.
I liked the storyline but I thought the movie was quite slow and difficult to get into it and I just felt that Anna Paquin was the only actress worth keeping. I would have been happy if they'd replaced everyone else.

Sliding Doors
½

For me this was an okay romantic comedy/drama. Although it was more a drama than a comedy. I usually don't like Gwyneth Paltrow very much but I didn't mind her in this even if it was weird hearing her speak with a british accent. In fact I quite liked the chemistry between her and John Hannah.
I probably would have wanted the parallell universes to have been portrayed a little differently but all in all I quite enjoyed it, although the movie did feel a little longer than it actually was.
This movie also tells an important life lesson, don't do something that you know is wrong or something where you don't want to get caught, because someone will always find out.

Monsters vs. Aliens

I'm not a big fan of animated movies/cartoons. I tend to avoid them. Just like I've managed to avoid this one for six years despite my favourite actress doing one of the voices.
According to myself there aren't that many good animated movies out there. I never feel that there's anything hooking me to the screen. It feels more like a struggle to sit through it and sadly this movie wasn't an exception.
If you look at the bright side I'm glad that these types of movies are often quite short, because I wouldn't have managed to watch this movie for much longer. I didn't really feel that focused on the screen whilst watching it. I just kept wondering which actor was doing the voices to all the different characters and I couldn't really think about anything else. Some scenes felt quite well made and it didn't always feel like it was animated, but sadly it didn't really intrigue me enough.

Love And Honor
½

The beginning of the movie made me feel that this movie maybe wasn't going to be so good after all. Although, after the first ten minutes had passed it got better and then it wasn't difficult to sit through it at all.
Besides Teresa Palmer, the acting wasn't great, but it was never something that bothered me. Love and Honor was a sweet romantic war love story. I quite enjoyed it and it did give me a happy feeling by the end of it.

Bounce
Bounce(2000)

Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow aren't exactly two of my favourite actors out there. Not even close. But then I read what the movie was about, and on paper it was supposed to be a homerun. Movies with these type of storylines usually recieve between four - four and a half - stars. At least from me. But now I realise that a good storyline isn't the only thing that makes a good movie.
When I started watching the movie I realised that it was rather slow and difficult to get into it so my grade went from four stars to three. That was when I thought the slowness would only last for the first ten minutes, and then it would get better.
Sadly this movie never got better. It never became easy to watch it. It was a struggle to sit through it from the beginning until the very end. Eventually three stars turned into two. The final and absolute grade of the movie.
The storyline was a homerun. But the combination of bad acting, terrible chemistry and the lack of a good script made this movie into one big belly-flop.

Jackie & Ryan
½

I enjoyed this movie. It wasn't your typical Katherine Heigl movie which I liked. It was unpredictable, I never quite knew what would happen next, and it always managed to keep me surprised.
The soundtrack was amazing and I really enjoyed the storyline. I believed in the characters and I felt that the actors portrayed their roles really well.

A Walk in the Clouds

A Walk in the Clouds was a sweet romantic drama. There were parts in the beginning that I felt were unrealistic and there were parts where I felt that the acting wasn't so great.
I got the feeling that the movie was supposed to be set in the 1950's, because of the clothes and the language and the script, but they never told me anything which made me wonder if it was supposed to be present time or not.
For me this movie had a lack of chemistry and a lack of acting capabilities, but for some reason I managed to enjoy it anyways.

If Only
If Only(2004)

I had only seen three movies starring Jennifer Love Hewitt before this one and that was enough for me. She is one of those actresses where I think twice before watching a movie that she's starring in.
But I really liked the storyline of this movie so I decided to give it a go. This is a plot that I've seen and heard of before. I saw it in the psychological thriller Premonition and I read it in the book, that will be seen on the big screen next year, Before I Fall.
Movies with this storyline usually tells the same sort of message. That we should always live everyday to the fullest, you never know what might happen. You should live everyday with no regrets, because it doesn't matter how hard you try, you can't change what's already been.
I didn't mind Jennifer Love Hewitt in this movie, I would even go as far as to say that she was quite good. I liked Paul Nicholls as well and I enjoyed the chemistry between them both. This was a sweet romantic drama that payed off, because I ended up really enjoying it.

Hollidaysburg

It's funny, I've seen two movies now, basically just after each other where they technically begin exactly the same. Maybe it's a new technique to get us interested and wanting to watch more. Sadly it's not really working. Maybe it does make us want to watch the rest of the movie, hoping that it will intrigue us but it didn't exactly make Hollidaysburg any good.
To be honest, it was a little bit of a struggle watching this movie to the end despite its somewhat short length. I did feel tempted to look at my phone instead or press pause and do something else for a few minutes before I returned to the movie again.
There were a few scenes that were shortened that needed to be longer and more intense because now I just ended up feeling confused. For me this was too slow, nothing really happened, and all I really did was wait for the end credits.

Love Actually
½

You won't find a better Christmas movie than this. This is pure entertainment. It doesn't matter how many times you've seen it, you'll never get tired of it. It will always feel like it's the first time you're watching it and you'll always find something new to laugh at. Watch it and enjoy, it doesn't get any better than this!

Listen To Your Heart

The last movie that I rewarded five stars was The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, and it was perhaps four or five years ago I saw it for the first time and I haven't given any other movie the same grade since.
I guess I've gotten pickier, I assume that there must always be something missing in a film, something that could make the movie better. And why would I reward a movie with the highest grade if there's something missing?
I've thought that in order to give a movie five stars I have to walk around and think about the movie and nothing else for months after having watched it. But maybe I'm just one of those people that can't quote movies after having seen it once and maybe I'm one of those people that can forget the ending of a movie even if it's only gone two minutes since I saw it. Why should that matter when I truly enjoyed every second whilst watching it and I truly never wanted it to end? Seeing as I can feel a tingle in my whole body after having seen it the grade couldn't really have been anything else.
From the very first sentence of the movie I thought I would end up giving it four stars, then I continued watching it and continued loving it and I realised that four stars wouldn't be enough, it would have to be four and a half stars. When I started reaching the end I told myself that I really have to go on feeling here. Because when I look back on the movie that I'm watching I can't think of a single thing that I would change. Perhaps that I would have wanted subtitles on the sign language and that I would have wanted more time to read what she's saying when she's writing her words down in the beginning. But that's such a small part and I'm not going to let it ruin this grade. Because eventually as the movie moved on I just knew. I knew that this was the one. This was going to be the first movie in five years that I would reward the highest amount of stars, just because this movie truly had something special.
This is a movie about love and alienation and grief and most importantly listening to your heart. The soundtrack was amazing, the acting was amazing, the script was amazing. This movie really took me by surprise. I had no expectations, which is probably why this movie had such a big impact on me.
I liked that I hadn't heard of any of the actors that were in the movie and that it still managed to touch me this much. This is a movie that will most definitely tug at your heartstrings and make you feel things that you didn't think you were capable of.

6 Years
6 Years(2015)

The reviews that I have read of this movie, both on Rottentomatoes and on Netflix, have been worse than I thought they would be. I thought 6 Years would be one of those movies that all filmfanatics would love. Perhaps not.
I didn't fall asleep during the movie and I never struggled to see it towards the end, therefore I can't really give the movie less than three stars.
The movie is very short for being a movie like this, but it never felt short. I think it needed to be one hour and nineteen minutes in order to work and it's possible that I would have struggled to watch it until the end if it had been any longer.
I liked the plot of the movie and I liked the feel to it. It's possible that there were scenes that didn't always feel that realistic and sometimes I didn't really feel the chemistry between Taissa Farmiga and Ben Rosenfield but that didn't really bother me. I wasn't expecting to be amazed and I wasn't watching this movie to be blown away afterwards. I watched this because I wanted to see a shorter drama that would tell me something and for me, that was enough.

The Heart of Christmas

After having watched this movie I didn't feel as thrilled as I know other people have. The movie didn't move me the way that I hoped it would.
I think Jeanne Neilson is beautiful, but I just kept irritating myself on her voice throughout the whole movie.
The whole movie is basically made of voiceovers, you need someone with a better voice. A calmer voice.
I didn't really feel the paremts' love for their child in this movie and that should be the most essential part in a movie like this.
I wouldn't say that this is a Christmas movie and I was hoping to feel healed after watching it. But sadly I didn't feel that either.

Brooklyn
Brooklyn(2015)

I really thought that I was going to enjoy this movie more than I actually did. I thought I was going to give it at least four stars, but sadly it only really lands on three stars for me.
I loved the book that this movie is based on and I got emotional just by reading the movie's reviews, which made me think that I would be just as attached with the movie as I was with the book. Sadly I don't feel as optimistic towards this movie as everyone else seems to be feeling.
I felt that the movie never really began and there were a lot of things that were left out in the beginning that needed to be there to fully comprehend the movie if you haven't already read the book.
I have always said that I think Saoirse Ronan is the best actress of her generation and I don't think I'll ever change my mind on that one, this movie will probably result in Saoirse Ronan receiving her second Academy Award nomination, but I was still not as blown away by her performance as I was expecting.
For me this movie was a bit too slow, it was difficult to get into it and there was never really anything that glued me to the screen. There were a few scenes that were missing that needed to be there and there were other scenes that were in the movie that didn't feel quite as important.
Sometimes it felt like the scenes were jumping from scene to scene and I didn't always feel like it was telling a coherent story.
All in all it wasn't a bad movie, it just could have been a lot better, and like most movies starring Saoirse Ronan she really did lift the movie to a higher level than what it would have been otherwise.

An Invisible Sign

At first I felt that An Invisible Sign was a romantic comedy/drama, then for a few minutes it started to feel more like a psychological thriller, before it then went back to being a reguar romantic drama again.
I liked the storyline and the plot of the movie but I couldn't really feel the chemistry between Jessica Alba and Chris Messina and I couldn't really feel the chemistry between Jessica Alba and Sophie Nyweide. I felt that the story progressed too fast both between Alba and Messina, and Alba and Nyweide, and sadly that's where the movie falls for me.
The grade could have been a lot better, if it wasn't for the chemistry. It was enjoyable whilst watching it but it probably won't be seen again. I would have wanted to feel a little more hole afterwards, but for being an average comedy drama it's definitey one of the better ones.

October Baby
October Baby(2012)
½

During the whole movie I just kept wondering, how could it have taken me this long to see it? How could I have missed a movie like October Baby for four years?
I read the storyline and saw the trailer the day before I ended up seeing the movie and I definitely thought it would be my type of movie. Just as I began watching it I just knew that I would enjoy it. Something to do with the soundtrack, the beautiful imagery, the first few scenes, the poetic and lyrical voice of Rachel Hendrix. I just knew and I was right.
I am glad that I missed out on this movie for so long, because now I got to experience the pure joy that you feel when you're seated in front of a really good movie today instead. October Baby was pure beauty.
After seeing this movie it's difficult to understand how some movies that seem perfect on paper end up being mediocre and dull, and then there are movies like October Baby. Movies that seem perfect on paper and still end up exceeding your expectations. But I'm glad that there are movies like October Baby and that all movies aren't this good, because then I wouldn't have appreciated the movie that I just saw as much.

Aloha
Aloha(2015)
½

A romantic comedy/drama with Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams is supposed to be better than this. But sadly it isn't.
The beginning of the movie kind of felt like it was filmed in the late 80's/early 90's and not year 2015. This could have been to the movie's benefit, if it had been done in the right way. But it wasn't.
There was absolutely no chemistry between the actors. I didn't believe in the characters. I didn't really understand the plot of the movie.
This could have been better. This should have been better. I am disappointed to say the least.

Keith
Keith(2008)

I was quite tired already when starting to watch this movie and I didn't fall asleep. Just that is an accomplishment. But this movie really was something else.
Keith is the story about love and friendship and everything in between. It's about finding each other and caring for one another.
Jesse McCartney and Elisabeth Harnois were both great as Keith and Natalie. I believed in every word they said and everything they did. The movie is shorter than you'd think with a movie like this but it never felt that things went too fast or that the movie had a lack of credibility. I believed in their chemistry and their story and I ended up really enjoying this movie.
There were a few minutes towards the end that I didn't quite understand but that doesn't matter. I hope more people will see this movie and will appreciate its pure beauty, just the way that I did.

Jenny's Wedding

I really didn't know much before watching this one. I was expecting more a mediocre romantic comedy but this is more of a drama. A drama about love and acceptance and fear. Love for someone that you're not supposed to love. Learning to accept people for who they are. Fear of opening up to your parents and showing your true colours.
This movie takes up important subjects but my problem with it was its credibility. I didn't really believe in Katherine Heigl and Alexis Bledel as an in love lesbian couple. I didn't quite believe in Tom Wilkinson and Linda Emond as the homophobic conservative parents.
I felt that I didn't quite believe in the acting and I didn't quite believe in the screenplay. I still ended up enjoying the movie and there were moments when I felt very emotional just because I hated the parents in this movie. Because I hate people like them. They are the opposite of everything I stand for.
The problem is that this movie could have been even better. If only everyone who made this movie happen had played their cards right.

Holiday High School Reunion (Christmas Crush)
½

This really didn't feel like a christmas movie to me. It might have "christmas" in the title and there might be a christmas tree or two and a few presents in the actual movie which means that you kind of understand that christmas is soon, but you never quite understand how soon. Which is the difference when it comes to a christmas movie and a movie that might be christmas themed but just doesn't really give the christmas feel that you want it to.

Dear Santa
Dear Santa(2011)
½

For the first ten minutes of the movie I thought it was going to be another one of those christmas clichés but I ended up being wrong. Thankfully. I ended up really enjoying this movie. It had a great soundtrack and good chemistry between Amy Acker and David Haydn-Jones. It was a christmas movie about love and friendship, about change and life. It also teaches you that everyone is capable of change as long as you have someone worth changing for.

I'm Not Ready for Christmas

A weird, somewhat entertaining, christmas comedy. I only really know George Stults from Seventh Heaven and it felt weird to see him in a christmas tv movie cliché. The storyline was a bit too much fairytale but it was an okay movie to watch when you just feel like cheering yourself up.

Christmas Incorporated
½

Another feel-good christmas movie that has come out this year. I liked the chemistry between Shenae Grimes and Steve Lund. That is what holds this movie together, because I didn't really feel that the main storyline spoke to me.

Ice Sculpture Christmas
½

Ice Sculpture Christmas is a feel-good christmas movie. I never felt the urge to turn it off or to go and do something else, I even quite enjoyed myself.

Elf
Elf(2003)

Will Ferrell is not a favourite of mine and this movie wasn't an exception. I felt that the character of Buddy was overplayed and I just didn't buy it. I enjoyed seeing Zooey Deschanel in a movie like Elf playing a character like Jovie. She is pretty much the only reason to watch this movie despite her playing a very small role.

A Gift Wrapped Christmas
½

I really enjoyed this christmas movie. Which is a surprise since it's pretty much only new faces and it doesn't really bring anything new to the table. Christmas movies like this usually only end up being average. But I thought the chemistry between Meredith Hagner and Travis Milne was great. I didn't want this movie to end. This was a feel-good movie at its best.

Surviving Christmas

Christmas movies with actors that you've actually heard of are usually the better ones - The Holiday, Love Actually, Jack Frost - but that just wasn't really the case with this one. I just didn't understand Ben Affleck's character. The humour in the movie wasn't really that funny. This could have been a good movie if you actually felt for the characters, which I didn't.

Happy-Go-Lucky

I usually like movies like this - by this I mean complex dramas that have been shown at filmfestivals and have been praised by a lot of film critics - but no I didn't enjoy it at all. I couldn't stand the character of Poppy, her laugh just destroyed the whole movie. The reason why I'm naming Poppy, and not Sally Hawkins, is because I don't think it's the actress' acting's fault. I think the character is supposed to be this eccentric and annoying and it has nothing to do with bad acting. It has to do with if you can put this aside and enjoy the movie anyway or if it will haunt you and destroy the whole film for you. For me, it was unfortunately the latter. I enjoyed the love story in the movie, sadly it was only for about ten minutes. The remaining one hour and forty-nine minutes weren't really worth my time. I even had to watch it in two rounds.

A Christmas Eve Miracle

I can't say that I enjoyed this movie. From the very first sentence I knew that this christmas movie wasn't going to be one that I would want to see again. But despite it not being that good, there was still something that made me want to see how it would end.

Ask Me Anything

It was different seeing Britt Robertson in a role like this but I just didn't buy it. I've seen her as a blind girl and a drug addict but other than that she usually plays sweet characters and for me this character that she played in this movie just didn't work for her. She's way too innocent to pull off a character like this which is shame. Because if she'd been able to pull it off I would have been really impressed by her acting but now I wasn't. Instead I just kept wondering why she would want to be a part of it. Although, the movie does get a plus for its soundtrack.

Mother and Child

I really enjoyed this movie. This is pure drama when it's at its best. It's about three women who all intertwine in this movie about mothers and children and their lives. Mother and Child really shows the love that mothers have for their children and that biology has nothing to do with being able to call someone your child. Great acting from Naomi Watts, Annette Bening, Kerry Washington, Samuel L Jackson and Britt Robertson. This movie was heartfelt and emotional and no matter how crazy a character in this movie might seem, I believed in every word they said and every action they made.

Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List
½

This is a movie that I normally would enjoy and when I started watching the movie and I saw its artsy style I really thought this would be an almost-home run. But very soon there after I realised that this movie would never come close to being a home run. The acting is atrocious and I just don't believe in the characters and I don't believe in the relationship between Naomi and Ely. In the beginning I felt certain that I would give this movie one star, but the last ten minutes of the movie raised my grade to one and a half stars. That's when the movie actually begun, with a good soundtrack and some worthwhile scenes. What a shame that we didn't get to see it for the rest of the movie.

The Wedding Pact

I thought the storyline was a bit of a cliché even before I started watching it. But I just needed something to do. I needed something simple and something that wasn't terrible, but it didn't have to be amazing either. This movie is a cliché and it didn't bring anything new to the table. You've probably seen this movie a thousand times before and you've probably seen similar movies that are a lot better than this one. It was watchable, I didn't feel the urge to turn it off, but it still left me somewhat empty afterwards.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2
½

I haven't really felt as attached to The Hunger Games-series as I have to other similar series such as Twilight, Harry Potter and Divergent. I really enjoyed the first Hunger Games movie but I haven't really been that attached to the last three of them. I felt a bit unfocused during the whole movie because I couldn't really remember anything that happened in the two movies that came before it. I felt a bit lost seeing as there were a ot of things that I didn't understand because I couldn't remember what happened in the other movies and the ending was too much of a cliché for my liking.

Man on Wire
Man on Wire(2008)

I was a little irritated after having seen this movie. I should have seen it earlier. First I read the book "To Reach the Clouds" which is basicaly like Man On Wire but in book-form. Then I saw the movie The Walk. When I saw the movie there were things that I couldn't really remember reading in the book so I kept wondering if it actually happened or if it was made up especially for the movie. Then I saw the documentary and I realised that all of the things from The Walk that I thought was fiction, actually happened in real life. So I wish that I'd read the book first, then seen the documentary and last but not least seen The Walk. Then I probably would have enjoyed The Walk even more than I already did. But overall this was a good documentary, it's a fascinating story that I've enjoyed learning more about.

The Walk
The Walk(2015)

The Walk started rather ridiculous but still somewhat entertaining and ended to be something powerful and foremost spectacular.
I just finished reading the book and even though there were a few things in the movie that I couldn't remember actually reading in the book I could still see the movie as a true individual, because there was something special in the way that the story was told that needed to be visualised.
The French and the French accent from Joseph Gordon-Levitt was impeccable. He really shone in this movie. In a way that I hadn't really seen him shine before. The 3D-effects were absolutely remarkable. The imagery was beautiful and the grace of the movie was utterly stunning.
The movie started by making me laugh, but it ended with having my heart in knots. It might not be a movie that I will see again, but that's just because it's difficult to have a first experience twice.

The Pill
The Pill(2011)

Seriously? I hated both the main characters, I don't know if it was the point but after having seen the movie I felt the urge to pour hot coffee over them both. Mindy was naive, expecting that a one night stand was automatically going to lead to a relationship. Fred was oppressive and arrogant and just doesn't know when to stop. If a guy treated me like that I definitely would have said something. I just felt like jumping into the movie and slashing him to pieces. I guess that I have to praise the movie for its somewhat unpredictable ending but other than that this movie doesn't have much going for it.

The Intern
The Intern(2015)
½

The intern was an average comedy but it wasn't quite as good as I'd hoped for it to be. It was easy to sit through it but it was just as easy to forget it afterwards.

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

I don't really know what to say about this movie, I mainly thought it was kind of weird and I really didn't understand the point of it. There are a lot of movies in development at the moment that seem great but haven't been made yet, and then they end up making this one. I don't get it. It gets two stars because even though it wasn't the best movie, there are still movies that are a lot worse.

Min lilla syster (My Skinny Sister)
½

I had heard good things about this movie so I ended up being a little disappointed when watching it. I felt that the acting wasn't that convincing and I felt that I didn't really believe in the characters the way that I had hoped. In the end it was okay, but it didn't really stay with me.

Catwoman
Catwoman(2004)
½

I know this is supposed to be some type of action-thriller movie but I only really enjoyed the scenes between Halle Berry and Benjamin Bratt. Their chemistry was the only thing that was worthwhile with this movie and I wanted there to be more of them. I wanted this movie to have more of them. I just didn't find the rest that exciting or gripping, the way that I think I was supposed to.

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

When watching the first movie I was a bit disappointed seeing as I thought the book was better. This time I really didn't like the book that the movie was based on at all which means that I ended up enjoying the movie a lot more.
This movie was exciting and gripping in a way that the book just wasn't. I really enjoyed it!

Baby on Board

Now I kind of know why I'd waited to see this movie until now. It was crude and not in a good way. I don't mind crudeness if it is relevant to the story. I don't mind swear words and sex scenes and crude dialogue if I understand what the point is. We have series like Skins, Orange is the New Black, The Affair and Girls where it has an essence. But in this movie I didn't feel that it was relevant. I kept wondering why actors would want to do scenes like these in a movie like this. It felt like the one who wrote the script put in these scenes just because he could, and that's the part that I don't really understand.

Blended
Blended(2014)

I didn't feel that the movie poster of this movie did the movie any justice, The reason that I hadn't seen the movie yet was because I thought this would be another type of genre but it wasn't. I quite enjoyed it. It had good music and it was entertaining and I didn't feel that Adam Sandler destroyed it.

The Maze Runner

I can't say that I loved the book that this movie is based on but towards the end of the book I really started to enjoy it. Then I saw the movie.
There were things from the book that I felt that I hadn't completely understood which I felt were clarified by watching the movie. Then there were things that I really comprehended in the book and had very strong images of how it would look, but then they went ahead and made it completely different in the film.
I didn't really feel that the movie hooked me to the screen, things happened too fast and it just didn't really have a beginning, middle and end the way that is needed to make the movie that I was hoping for.

Jack and Jill

People are probably going to hate me for saying this but I actually thought this was quite an entertaining comedy. I usually don't like Adam Sandler but I didn't have a problem with him in this movie. I found this to be entertaining and it was a good movie to see when you're home on a Saturday night.

Magic Mike
Magic Mike(2012)
½

Well... I never really got into this movie the way that I had hoped. In the end all it really ended up being was okay. Some scenes were entertaining, whilst there were other scenes that I had a hard time comprehending, in the end this was a forgettable movie that doesn't really stay with you long enough to have any relevant thoughts about it.

She's the One
½

It's taken me months to write this review just because after I saw the movie I just didn't know what to write about it. I didn't know what I thought of it. The movie didn't even stay with me long enough to turn off the movie and walk to my computer to log in here to write the review. I think that pretty much sums up what I thought about this movie.

Stockholm, Pennsylvania

Stockholm, Pennsylvania is the story about a twenty-two year old girl who was kidnapped at the age of four, now eighteen years later she is back with her biological family. The family that she can't remember and she is having a hard time fitting in.
Movies about abduction and the Stockholmsyndrome can all be very different and they can all lead you in very different directions. You can end up sympathising with the family who just got their child back after having been away from each other for almost twenty years. Or you can end up sympathising with the child, all she knows is what she's been living with for these past eighteen years, she can't remember anything else and any type of change in her life is going to be difficult. Or you can end up sympathising with the abductor, maybe he couldn't have children of his own or maybe he was very lonely.
In this movie I felt that I sympathised with her - Leia - played by Saoirse Ronan. I could understand why she had a hard time fitting in, because everyone around her was trying too hard. I could understand why she had a connection with Ben. I could understand why she felt the way she did. I had a hard time understanding the parents, they were manipulative and I didn't really understand why they were the way they were.
It was difficult to sit through the movie, you never really got into it the way that you had hoped. Although it was a good storyline and it was a story that needed to be told. Saoirse Ronan is one of the best actresses of her generation and this movie wasn't an exception.

Drive Angry
Drive Angry(2011)

Drive Angry is exciting and thrilling, but nothing more. Sometimes thrilling excitement can be enough, but this time it wasn't. Even though it kept you in front of the screen until the very end, that feeling was still missing. That special feeling that you want to feel when watching a movie like this, that tightness in your stomach, that wonderful ache that you feel because you want to know what will happen next. That ache that makes you want to scream when things aren't turning out the way that you're hoping them to. That ache and that feeling was missing. Which is a shame, because this was a movie that could have been good enough to deliver that wonderful ache that will have your heart tingling long after the movie's end.

The Big Wedding

This movie truly shows that no matter how many terrific actors you choose to put in a movie like this, they still can't save a useless script.
The Big Wedding just wasn't funny, it could have been, but it wasn't. I think it was trying too hard to make people laugh and when you try too hard to make something happen, it rarely ends up being a good thing. The positive things often happen by chance, I hope the director and the screenwriter can learn something from this in the near future.

Adam
Adam(2009)

Adam isn't really a love story, it's more a story about two people meeting. One of them a little more different than the other, they become friends and then they naturally fall in love, without the difference having any meaning.
This is a sweet movie with a great soundtrack. It shows that we're all the same and that we should accept everyone for who they are. When you start looking inside a person, instead of outside, that's when you'll find what really matters.

While We're Young

While We're Young is the type of movie that only should have been forty-five minutes long. It started way too quickly and after less than half the movie you started wondering if it was going to end soon. Which it didn't.
Ben Stiller truly is one of the worst actors of his generation, with that said I didn't hate him as much in this movie as I've done in all of his other movies.
The problem is that the director Noah Baumbach is trying to copy Woody Allen way too much. If you don't know who's actually the director of the movie you're going to think that Allen's directed it and then be surprised when you find out that he hasn't.

A Little Chaos

I thought this was going to be a love story. It wasn't. I thought the movie was going to show the progression from starting to build a garden to the finished product. It didn't. I don't really know what it ended up showing but what I do know is that I was hoping to see more of the progress. I was hoping to see more chemistry.
I tend to not like movies set in a time before the 1900s where the actors run around with large dresses and long-haired wigs, I was hoping this movie might be an exception but it wasn't.
This is a whole different genre and I just have trouble comprehending movies like these. They skip important information and end up not telling you things that you need to know.
It was slow getting into it and there was never really a reason for me to keep watching it except that Kate Winslet is in it. Because she is pretty much the only reason to see this movie.

The Longest Ride

I have seen all of the movies based on Nicholas Sparks books and I've always ended up loving them except the two recent ones where I haven't ended up being as happy as I would have expected. The truth is, it has nothing to do with the movies. The reason why I've ended up a little bit disappointed is because when it comes to the two recent Nicholas Sparks movies, I actually happened to read the book first.
The books are gripping and endearing and passionate in a way that the movie just wasn't. I felt that the flashbacks of Ira and Ruth just didn't feel as natural in the movie as in the book. I would have wanted to see more of Sophia and Luke and less of Ira and Ruth.
The story of Sophia and Luke was the one that compelled me the most and I think that if I had seen more of them this movie would have been more of a tearjerker, the way that all of the movies based on a Nicholas Sparks novel tend to be.

Date Night
Date Night(2010)

Now I know exactly why it's taken me so long to see this movie. I started watching it about a week ago, probably more. I saw the first nineteen minutes and thought it was okay but then it started getting really lame so I had to turn it off and see the rest a week later.
The first nineteen minutes and the last five minutes were watchable, everything in-between was - I don't really know what it was - not something I'm willing to ever put myself through again.
In the beginning I had compassion for the couple, I understood them. They've been together so long that they need to start scheduling when to hang out with each other. They're a married couple who go on a date once a week to give their marriage some more strength. Then it just went crazy and the movie wasn't fun anymore. I just don't really know why any actors would want to starr in a movie like this.

Made of Honor

There are actors that you can watch in pretty much any movie because you don't really classify them with one single character. Even though Reese Witherspoon's most famous character might be Elle Woods in Legally Blonde and Kate Winslet is known for playing Rose in Titanic, it still doesn't feel weird to see Witherspoon in action movies and it doesn't feel weird to see Winslet in comedies. You can pretty much see them in anything and love them anyway.
Then there are actors that you classify with one character so much that it's weird seeing them in anything else, it doesn't matter how good they might be. Emma Watson will always be Hermione Granger, Daniel Radcliffe will always be Harry Potter and Patrick Dempsey will always be Derek Shepherd.
I can't see him in these lame romantic comedies, they just don't do him justice and it just makes me want to laugh. It just feels wrong and in the end that's all I can think about. How this movie just isn't right for him.
I could sit through the movie, I didn't feel like closing my eyes or turning it off but still it ended up being rather tedious. There was nothing hooking me to the screen, there was nothing that really made me want to know how it would end. The movie is predictable, you pretty much know the ending from the very beginning.
This is a movie that you've probably seen before a hundred times but with other actors and somewhat other lines. But it's all there. This movie only really exists for when you just happen to need something to do for the next 100 minutes, in that case it works perfectly.

Paper Towns
Paper Towns(2015)

I remember reading the book The Fault in Our Stars and then watching the movie and how amazed I was that the movie managed to be so true to the book.
Paper Towns is the second John Green book that has been adapted into a movie and I read this book as well. This time I don't feel as amazed when watching the movie adaptation. I felt that there was too much voiceovers, even for me. I felt that a few of the scenes that worked in the book, just came out as lame and too much in the movie.
The movie didn't really have a beginning, middle and end in the same way that the book does. It ended up being watchable, and entertaining at times, it wasn't bad but I was still hoping for something more.

People Like Us

People Like Us is a movie with a great storyline about family. I found it to be rather slow though, it was difficult to get into it. It got better and better towards the end, I just wished it had hooked me to the screen from the very beginning.

Little Black Book
½

For the first ten minutes of this movie I kept thinking: Wow, how could I have missed this one? Seeing as it seemed to be a movie in my taste. It started off with a good soundtrack and quote that made you want to continue watching it. Although, then it gradually started to get a bit lame and I didn't really feel that attached to the storyline anymore. It was easy to sit through it but it's one of those movies to watch when you just need something to do for the next 107 minutes but it just won't stay with you for much longer afterwards.

Ted 2
Ted 2(2015)
½

Ted 2 is a satirical and crude comedy about a talking teddybear. I found the humour to be a little heavier in this movie compared to the first one. This movie is a little braver and more courageous comedywise. I'm impressed that so many famous actors and actresses are willing to be in a movie like this and play scenes like these. That said I found it to be quite entertaining, it always managed to keep you hooked to the screen and it did leave you with a smile on your face.

The Rebound
The Rebound(2009)

I found The Rebound to be a lot better than I expected. In the beginning I thought the humour was a bit too crude but then the movie started getting better. It ended up being an entertaining comedy that always managed to keep you entertained.

All Relative
All Relative(2014)

I found this movie to be two different movies. For the first ten minutes I kept wondering when the actual movie would begin. Then it did but it still ended up being average. The humour was a bit too satirical and crude for my liking. It was okay, you could sit through it but nothing much really happened. You weren't rooting for anyone, the way you should in a movie like this.

The Age of Adaline
½

I found The Age of Adaline to be rather confusing when it comes to generations - how come Adaline Bowman was once good friends with William Jones when Adaline Bowman's daughter is now about the same age as William? - I also found there to be a lack of chemistry between Blake Lively and Michiel Huisman in the movie. Things happened too fast and I just didn't feel their love the way that I had hoped.
Other than that it was an okay movie. Not great, but it wasn't bad either. It was easy to sit through it, it almost felt like it had needed to be longer in able to be even more credible and realistic.

Hot Pursuit
Hot Pursuit(2015)

Hot Pursuit is not one of Witherspoon's better movies, it doesn't have the pure humour and entertainment that a lot of her other comedies that I actually enjoyed have (Legally Blonde, This Means War, Just Like Heaven, Pleasantville and Penelope) and it doesn't have the excitement or the emotions that a lot of her dramas and thrillers have (Walk the Line, Wild, Fear, Freeway and The Man in the Moon).
Instead I found this movie to be rather ridiculous. I know that Witherspoon can do a lot better both comedic-wise and credibility-wise. I didn't really believe in her as a police officer and I didn't really believe in her as a person. I felt that the story was rather bland and it just didn't really tell me anything.
I look forward to seeing Witherspoon in all her movies that are in development at the moment, they all seem to be genres that are better suited for her and therefore will have the ability to show her true talent. Because she has it.

Pitch Perfect 2

After having seen the first Pitch Perfect-movie I was practically begging for a sequel. The romantic side of me wanted to find out what would happen with Jesse and Beca and the rest of me just wanted another opportunity to be as entertained as I was the first time round.
The first Pitch Perfect-movie was genuinely funny and one of the better comedies out there with a spectacular soundtrack as well. The sequel is less music and more embarrassed goofiness and I felt that I never really got into it the same way as I did in the first one, which is a shame but I enjoyed the ending and I found the end credits to be beautiful and very fancy, so that's a plus.

Ride
Ride(2015)

Ride wasn't quite as good as I'd hoped for it to be. I felt that the relationship between the mother and the son was rather odd, they seemed more like strangers than related by flesh and blood.
This movie didn't really leave me with anything. I didn't feel any compassion for any of the characters, I didn't feel anything for the storyline. It just ended up leaving me empty. A shame.

Welcome to Me

For the first fifteen minutes I was wondering if I should just turn the movie off but then it started to get better and by better I mean that it wasn't too painful to sit through it.
I still found the characters rather unrealistic. I never really felt any passion for the movie. It's rather odd, and that might be the point, but I still need to feel something towards it and I didn't. I just kept wondering how anyone would come up with an idea like this one? And why anyone would want to be a part of it? I felt that the acting skills that James Marsden and Joan Cusack possess were wasted making this movie, they would have had much more success making another movie instead of this one.

The DUFF
The DUFF(2015)
½

You might not believe it, but the movie is actually based on a book. Although the movie isn't the book. The movie is a completely different story. Even though the main story is there they have still added characters and plot lines and made the movie a lot worse than what it could have been if it had followed the book more.
Changing a movie that much when it's actually based on a book, can be a good thing. You don't have to judge it and compare it as much because you can start to see the book and the movie as true individuals. But all the changes weren't for the movie's benefit and they should have just stuck with the original script, that was the actual book.
The movie is about acceptance and that you should accept yourself for who you are but the book is about so much more. Even though it is about that as well it also takes up subjects such as alienation and addiction, it takes up subjects such as betrayal and distraction. I think the movie would have been a lot better if it showed some of these subjects as well, showed a little more depth.
I found this movie to be crude and predictable and repulsive. It never really began and it never really ended. It was a ninety-minute long muddled mess. Nothing really happened and it never really kept you hooked. For me it was a disappointment. This is an un-funny comedy that just isn't worth your time.

Still Alice
Still Alice(2015)
½

I have read the book and I did find the book to be better than the movie. The movie could have been 15-20 minutes longer, then it would have had the chance to explain some things that you might not understand if you see the movie without having read the book.
Julianne Moore was absolutely remarkable in the very emotional scenes. But I just keep questioning the rest of the cast. Even though I already knew which actors were to play who when I read the book I still feel that Alec Baldwin and Kristen Stewart weren't quite right for this movie.
Julianne Moore is the only one who really shined, the rest just somehow blended in.
There were some scenes that were in the beginning of the movie but should have been in the end and there were some scenes that weren't even in the movie but needed to be there for you to fully comprehend it and for the movie to be even more emotional and gripping than it already was. Other than that it was a good drama about memory. This is a movie about a painful disease. It's about losing your memory and your ability to be yourself. It's also about your family and how it affects them to see someone they love turn into someone they can't recognise anymore. All in all this is a story about love and that love conquers all, that we should love each other in sickness and in health. To be there for each other when life is at its hardest, is what's most important.

Please Give
Please Give(2010)

For me Please Give was just like all other movies written and directed by Nicole Holofcener. Nothing special.
I appreciated the movie's unpredictability and how true to life it really is when it comes to all the emotions that were expressed in it. But for me there was never really a hook, there was never anything that made me want to stay there until the end. Something that made me want to see what would happen next. This made me lose focus sometimes and made me focus on other things than the actual movie.
In the end it just wasn't very memorable and it left me as soon as I'd finished watching it.

Enough Said
Enough Said(2013)

I read a review of this movie on a movieblog where it had gotten five stars. I was intrigued and wanted to see what it was that was so amazing with this movie but I can't say I enjoyed it as much. For me there's one word for this movie and that is average. It wasn't good, but it wasn't bad either.
It might have some moments when you'll be tempted to pick up your mobile phone and read text messages whilst the movie keeps rolling, the fact is that you'll manage fine to follow the plot even though your eyes are elsewhere.
For me this was a movie to watch when killing time. It didn't make you fall asleep but it didn't keep you hooked to the screen either. In other words, it was average.

Begin Again
Begin Again(2014)
½

I thought Begin Again was going to be a musical love story but it wasn't, this was a musical journey from the very beginning to the end. Music is one of those things that is always going to be better on screen compared to if it had been a book, because it isn't enough that you can read the lyrics, you need to be able to hear the melody as well.
The soundtrack was great, so was the acting and the unpredictability of it all definitely gets a plus. All in all it was an enjoyable movie that will leave you with a smile across your face.

Song One
Song One(2015)

Song One is the journey to redemption. It's the story about love and grief, music and the courage to redeem yourself.
I enjoyed this movie. It was quite short but it still didn't feel too short. This was a story that needed to be told in a few words and had it been told in too many words it would have been too much.
The movie had a great soundtrack and a meaningful message carrying it all the way to the end.
The hopeless romantic in me hated the unpredictability of the movie, but on the other hand, the movie-fanatic in me absolutely loved it.

Insurgent
Insurgent(2015)
½

Honestly, I found Insurgent to be a disappointment. I felt that the first movie, Divergent, was a lot more true to the book compared to what Insurgent was. I know that everyone gets disappointed when they've read a book and then watch the movie afterwards but I'm not one of those people. I usually love the book and the movie equally, or I hate the book and the movie equally or I actually prefer the movie.
Sure, it has happened that I've wondered why they changed certain scenes or why my favourite line isn't in the movie but this time I'm pretty much wondering why the whole book wasn't in the movie. Because there was hardly anything at all that I actually recognised, it felt like I was watching an entirely different movie than what I would have expected after having read the book.
I wish I could see the movie as a whole and appreciate it for what it is but I just couldn't. I just keep wondering if my point of view would have been completely different if I hadn't read the book. It probably would have.

Inherent Vice

I read the book just because I wanted to see the movie just because Reese Witherspoon was starring in it. Shame that Witherspoon was only really in three of the scenes and the rest of the movie was a nightmare.
Inherent Vice is filled with amazing actors but unfortunately they just didn't do this movie any justice. This is a movie that people will have very different opinions of. Some people will love it, others will hate it and some will find it to be somewhere in the middle.
I disliked the book and I was kind of hoping that I would get more understanding for the storyline by seeing the movie but I didn't. I think the movie managed to be so true to the book that I hated the movie just as much as I hated the book.
I am pretty proud that I managed to see the whole movie, I am even prouder that I managed to read the whole book. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, mine is that this movie isn't worth your money, it isn't even worth your time.

Kingsman: The Secret Service

I very spontaneously went to see this movie. I didn't know what to expect and it managed to exceed my expectations. I can't say it had a lot of depth or emotion, but it was a good action movie that managed to keep me hooked to the screen from start to finish!

Big Eyes
Big Eyes(2014)
½

Big Eyes is the true story of Margaret Keane and her husband Walter Keane. Margaret Keane was a painter during the 1950s and later, famous for drawing paintings of children and women with enormously big eyes. The problem is that no one actually knew that she had painted them until the late 60's because her husband Walter Keane took the credit.
This is the story about how they met, their life together and how it all ended. Amy Adams was great as Margaret Keane. It's possible that Christoph Waltz overplayed it a little playing the role of Walter Keane, because he feels quite creepy from the very beginning. So, if I can see it, why can't Margaret Keane?
But other than that I enjoyed it. I started to learn more about the life of Margaret and Walter Keane. I felt that this movie taught me something and I hope it can be a lesson to many other people as well.
I enjoyed seeing Tim Burton doing a movie like this. A movie without Johnny Depp or Helena Bonham Carter or hands made out of scissors. Just a true story that needs to be told.
This is a movie about physical manipulation and feeling trapped in your marriage. Behind the true story there lies a lot of depth and I found it all to be very instructive.

Fifty Shades of Grey

I have actually read the book and I hated it. It felt incredibly unrealistic, which might be the point, but it kind of felt like the author thought that in order to write an erotic novel she has to make up a fictional character as screwed up and twisted as Christian Grey. The book would have been a lot better and believable if it had been a romantic love story, only sexier. It can actually be romantic and erotic at the same time, it doesn't have to be the one or the other. Because when the story is created the way that it is I don't really believe in the characters. Why would Anastasia Steele, a 22-year-old inexperienced literature student fall in love with a guy like Christian Grey?
With that said I enjoyed the movie better than the book. For some reason the storyline felt a slightly bit more plausible on screen. Although I still stand by my opinion that the character of Christian Grey isn't very credible.
I was actually a bit afraid that they were going to romanticize this movie a bit too much, I was happily surprised of how much they actually managed to show. Because seeing as the book has become an absolute sensation by now and most of the people who go to see the movie have probably read the book it wouldn't have worked to romanticize it and I'm happy that it managed to be so true to the book without it getting too much.

The Best Of Me

I really loved the book that this movie is based on. It was a long time since I was this touched by a book and I found myself screaming loads of times when it wouldn't end up the way that I had hoped. With that said I can say that the movie most certainly wasn't as good as the book. It just never really touched me the way that I wanted it to. This wasn't the best Nicholas Sparks movie, and I have seen them all, but it still managed to be enjoyable and worth my time.

Laggies
Laggies(2014)

I honestly don't really know what to think of this movie. It was different to see Keira Knightley in a role like this. I know it's supposed to feel very juvenile but I just didn't really know what to make of it. It just didn't feel very realistic and I didn't really feel anything for the characters. It just ended up being a movie filled with emptiness. It wasn't a pain watching it, I managed to sit through it but I just didn't really comprehend the meaning of it all and what it wanted to tell me.

Boyhood
Boyhood(2014)
½

If you just see this movie as a movie and nothing else it's not going to be very special. Because this is like seeing someone else's life right in front of you. Life might be interesting in movies to make us watch them, but to see 12 years of a real person's life on screen it's not going to be very interesting. We go to school or work, we eat dinner, come home, go to bed. We get married, divorced, we fall in love, break up. When you see these 12 years being crammed into a 2 1/2 hour movie it's not so interesting. It doesn't excite you. There's nothing that actually hooks you to the screen and makes you want to continue watching it.
This movie is epic in one way, and one way only, it actually took 12 years to film it. This could have been a coming-of-age story about a boy who you see growing up in 12 years time where there's 12 different actors playing the same boy, but then this movie wouldn't have been as epic would it?
This movie took 12 years to film just because the director wanted to use the same actor for all of the characters as they age these 12 years. Even some actors who are only in about four scenes, you still see them age throughout the movie. Despite the movie not being that gripping or exciting I find this absolutely remarkable and therefore it will always be a masterpiece.

The Theory of Everything

This is yet another movie where I desperately tried to read the book beforehand but couldn't manage. In the book everything happened way too quickly and Jane Hawking wrote sentences that were almost impossible to comprehend. So I decided to not read the book and just watch the movie instead. Eddie Redmayne mesmerized me from start to finish. First of all he looks just like Stephen Hawking in the movie if you've seen photos of him in real life. I can imagine that to play someone with ALS must be incredibly hard, and to play someone who has ALS and is still alive who can judge your every move must be even harder. This is a disease that could come out as fake and overplayed if you're supposed to pretend that you have it when you actually don't. But Eddie Redmayne manages with absolute perfection. He is most certainly deserving of the Academy Award. This is an actor to look out for.
Felicity Jones did a great job as well, they both had great chemistry and opened a window to the life of Stephen and Jane Hawking. In the end you feel compassion for them. This was a heartfelt movie about love and science and everything in between.

Wild
Wild(2014)

Wild is a movie about survival. It's also the story about love. It's a story about the relationship between a daughter and a mother. When the mother dies in cancer the daughter doesn't really know what to do with herself. The grief is quite quickly replaced with sex and heroin and she doesn't really know how to get out of it so she decides to hike The Pacific Crest Trail. This is the story about the hike that might have saved her life and might just have healed her heart.
The movie is sadly not the book. The book was poetic and lyrical in a way that the movie just couldn't be but it was refreshing to see Reese Witherspoon play a role like Cheryl Strayed. This is one of her best movies yet alongside Walk the Line and The Man in the Moon. I hope there's more to come. This is a journey that everyone should take a part of, and learn something from.

Unbroken
Unbroken(2014)

I really tried reading the book before seeing this movie, I managed about 70 pages and then I had to quit. The book was absolutely terrible, the movie was better. It could feel slightly long at times but it was still a powerful story. It didn't really stay with me afterwards but it was still a heartfelt movie that has the ability to reach to many people.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1
½

I honestly can't really remember what I thought of this movie now. I really enjoyed the first one but I found both Catching Fire and Mockingjay - Part One rather forgettable. It wasn't as exciting as I'd hoped for, but maybe I just need to see it again.

The Good Lie
The Good Lie(2014)

I was genuinely hoping that this would be a new "The Blind Side" but it wasn't. The first half hour was set in Africa and maybe it was there to make us feel compassion for "The Lost Boys" but it didn't really work on me. When all of a sudden Reese Witherspoon came into the story she didn't carry it the same way that Sandra Bullock did in The Blind Side. I needed more compassion and empathy. I needed the bond between Reese Witherspoon and The Lost Boys to be stronger because I didn't really feel their chemistry. I was hoping for a tearfelt journey but it wasn't really there to be honest.

Barefoot
Barefoot(2014)

Barefoot tells the story about Jay and Daisy.
Jay is reckless. He's only really had relationships with strippers before. He keeps getting himself into trouble. He gets fired from almost all his jobs. His life is going absolutely nowhere.
Daisy is in need of an adventure. She's spent most of her life locked in her home. She doesn't know how to live. She's never been to a dance. She's never had a boyfriend. She's never had champagne or been to a wedding or been on a plane.
Now she's finally about to experience the adventure that she's always needed. When Jay's brother is getting married, Jay brings Daisy along as his date. All of a sudden she's about to experience the feelings that she's never felt but always been longing for and he's about to find love where he least expects it.
This is a sweet movie about love and life and everything in between. Both Evan Rachel Wood and Scott Speedman were great as Jay and Daisy - the two people that weren't meant to fall in love but did.

Love, Rosie
Love, Rosie(2015)

Love, Rosie was a sweet romantic comedy/drama that tells the story of two best friends that are secretly in love with each other but life just keeps getting in the way for them to ever end up together.
I have read the book and I wasn't a big fan. So I did end up enjoying the movie a bit more. In the book you have to read between the lines quite a lot whilst in the movie you get to see it all planning out right in front of you.
There were a few things that I didn't really understand why they had to change it in the movie and ended up being quite confusing if you had read the book.
But all in all, Love, Rosie was a good worthwhile movie about love and friendship. About life and that sometimes what you've been looking for all along is right under your nose.

Two Night Stand
½

Two Night Stand was an enjoyable romantic comedy about making the most of what you have and finding what you're looking for when you least expect it.
It might not bring anything new to the table but it was witty and fun and definitely worth your time.

Lucy
Lucy(2014)

I didn't have any expectations at all when walking in to see this movie, it started off a bit weird and I didn't really enjoy it at first but then it started to get better. By the end I thought it was quite an interesting and enjoyable movie. Even though I didn't understand everything I managed to enjoy it nonetheless.

God Help the Girl
½

Having watched the trailer I'd really looked forward to seeing this movie but it wasn't quite as good as I'd expected. It's the type of movie that I'd usually enjoy but the soundtrack wasn't as good as I'd hoped for and seeing as a lot of the movie is told in lyrics you don't always find out as much about the characters as you'd want to. Although, it definitely gets bonus points for its unpredictability.

If I Stay
If I Stay(2014)

I really loved the book that this movie is based on, so when the movie started I found it as a disappointment. But as the movie continued it gradually got better and by the end it managed to be worth it.

The Railway Man

I had looked forward to seeing this movie but sadly it wasn't as good as I'd expected. Instead it ended up being a bit of a snooze fest. It was hard to get into it and it was difficult to comprehend what was happening on screen which just resulted in you not really being able to keep your eyes open.

What If
What If(2014)

This was a good and funny romantic comedy. The chemistry between Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan was great. It had great dialogue and most certainly entertained you from beginning to end.

Adult World
Adult World(2014)
½

Adult World was an okay comedy. An unusual and different role for Emma Roberts. It was good and entertaining whilst watching it but didn't leave you with much once it's finished.

It's Complicated
½

It's Complicated was an okay comedy. It's easy to sit through it, it felt a bit long at times but it still managed to entertain you for two hours. Probably wouldn't choose to see it again though.

The Exploding Girl

I have never really noticed Zoe Kazan as an actress before and now I've all of a sudden seen five of her movies in a row. Sadly this was the only one I haven't really enjoyed out of the five.
The storyline and acting was great, the filmography was great as well, especially in the beginning and end. I just found it very slow and it was quite difficult managing to sit all the way through, despite it being very short.

HappyThankYouMorePlease
½

I have mentioned before that I don't like directors that starr in their own movies, for me that's selfishness to a level that I can't really tolerate, especially when they starr as the main character. It's one thing if it had been a bit part, but when it's the actual main character I find it quite egotistical.
But aside from that it was an okay and humorous comedy. All the actors did great and all the stories had depth. It was an enjoyable movie with humour and emotion but I probably woudn't see it again.

In Your Eyes
In Your Eyes(2014)
½

In Your Eyes is a remarkable, poetic and lyrical love story. It's pure and fresh and it's made in such a magical way. Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David had amazing chemistry even though they were only in one actual scene together. This was a sci-fi fantasy drama that absolutely blew my mind by how it was created and put together and the feeling that it produced on screen. It was a mesmerizing metaphysical love story and until the very end I just kept thinking: wow!

Ruby Sparks
Ruby Sparks(2012)

I was honestly a bit disappointed when I found out that Zoe Kazan wrote the script as well. I really want to like her since she's such a great actress but I just can't find myself to like directors and screenwriters who starr in their own movies.
Other than that it was still an enjoyable comedy about a writer who creates his dreamgirl who then comes to life. This movie plays with perfection. Can life ever be perfect? Can a person ever be perfect? We're human, we're always going to find peoples' flaws, no matter how perfect they might seem to be. So maybe it's just better to accept them for their imperfections instead of trying to change them into something else because they'll probably never be able to live up to our expectations anyway. A story about perfection and change. It was good and entertaining even though it felt a bit long at times, it could have been a little shorter but other than that it was an enjoyable comedy that's worth a watch.

The Pretty One

I honestly didn't want to enjoy this movie as much as I did, but I really enjoyed it. By the end I just wanted it to continue forever, I never wanted it to end. But like everything, they have to eventually.
I had only seen Zoe Kazan in Some Girl(s) before this one, and seeing as Some Girl(s) was absolutely atrocious this was a pleasant surprise. Zoe Kazan was amazing, playing not only one person but two.
Zoe Kazan also had amazing chemistry with Jake M. Johnson which truly made this movie to the masterpiece that it was.
This might be a storyline that we've seen before. Two identical twins. One of them is pretty and popular, the other is naive and weird. Then one of them dies, and having to process that you've just lost your other half.
But this movie manages to make it fresh and unique and the director and writer managed to make the movie funny and amusing despite the emotional topic, which is definitely a plus. Most enjoyable and most certainly recommended.

American Pie 2

For people who actually have the warped sense of humour that is needed to enjoy a movie like this, then maybe it might be found entertaining. But for me this was only really a gross embarrassment and it only makes me feel bad for the actors who would want to be a part of a movie like this.

I Could Never Be Your Woman
½

It was an okay comedy, even though I felt that the whole invisible guru part of it was unnecessary and kind of destroyed the whole concept of the movie. Otherwise it was an entertaining comedy that tests how much age really matters.

Happy Christmas
½

The movie might be called Happy Christmas and it might be set during Christmas but it still didn't really feel like a Christmas movie. Maybe because it was released in June or because there wasn't really any snow in it to give it away, I don't know. It was however an entertaining comedy with great acting. It felt like it was a bit too short, it could have been longer, but other than that it was definitely an enjoyable movie about family and letting loose.

One Fine Day
One Fine Day(1996)

This is a credible story about meeting someone when you least expect it. It's nothing new, but it's entertaining nonetheless.

Sunshine Cleaning
½

I don't know how I could have missed a movie like this for five years, I guess I expected it to be something else but it ended up being really good. Sunshine Cleaning is a sort of comedy drama, it has its funny moments, but it has a sentimental and emotional part as well.
This was a really good and entertaining movie about sisterhood and helping those we care about the most. Both Amy Adams and Emily Blunt did a great job. Emily Blunt also managed to pull off an acceptable American accent.

Nine Months
Nine Months(1995)
½

This was an averagely entertaining comedy about the obstacles of having and raising a child. Somewhat childish and lame in some scenes, but entertaining nonetheless.

Mirror Mirror

Mirror Mirror is a more gentle and child friendly take on the story of Snow White. It was easy to sit through it but it was really only one of those watch-it-to-kill-time type of movies which I guess is kind of a shame. It's a movie to watch when you have nothing else to do, but by the end of it there won't really be much to say about it.

That Awkward Moment
½

If you've seen the trailer and think it sounds like an entertainment you won't be disappointed. This was exactly what I expected after having seen the trailer of the movie, not in a bad way. It was funny and witty, it managed to have its embarrassing scenes without them becoming gross which is a plus for me.
This was a comedy that I would recommend and I really enjoyed watching it to be honest.

Very Good Girls

I was afraid that this was going to be one of those movies that is supposed to be really good but then ending up not living up to its expectations. This movie ended up being just as good as it was supposed to.
It's a story that we've all heard before, two best friends fall for the same guy. We've seen it in so many movies before. Comedies, dramas, thrillers, you name it. But this movie still felt different. It felt fresh and unique.
The acting was great and this is a movie that I would definitely recommend.

The Fault In Our Stars

It wasn't quite as good as the book, but I'm still mesmerized over how true to the book it managed to be. It starts and ends just like the book and everything else in between seemed to be just like the book as well. All the parts that weren't in there and the parts that they'd changed or taken out, I could understand why they made those choices because they simply weren't important. It feels amazing to be able to say that after what is the intelligence that is put into writing a book like The Fault in Our Stars.
In some voiceovers I felt that the great acting wasn't always there, but in the emotional scenes you really feel with the characters and it really feels like you're experiencing it with them.

Hope Floats
Hope Floats(1998)

The best part of this movie was probably Mae Whitman, I never realised what an amazing actress she was when she was so young.
This was all in all a feel-good movie to watch on a Friday evening when you just want to take it easy in front of the tv. It will be worth your while but there's not a lot to say about it afterwards. Some scenes could feel a bit cheesy but all the actors managed to do a great job.

Divergent
Divergent(2014)
½

It wasn't quite as good as the book, and as pretty much every time when the book is better than the movie, there were parts from the book that I wish the movie had dwelled on a bit more. But other than that the movie managed to be very true to the book and it was definitely worth my while.

Devil's Knot
Devil's Knot(2014)

I had waited to be able to see this movie forever, I'm glad I finally got the chance. I have loved Reese Witherspoon ever since I saw her in Legally Blonde, now nine years later I have seen every single movie that she's starred in. She might have that witty humour that is needed to pull off a comedy, but it's movies like these: dramas filled with emotion, that truly shows her talent and proves to the rest of us why she is the one to watch.
Both Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth did a great job in this movie about the search for three eight year old boys who have gone missing.
It's the story about every parent's worst nightmare and it managed to be portrayed well on screen.

Noah
Noah(2014)

Great directing and wonderful acting. It could feel a bit long at times but it was still easy to sit through it and the actors managed to make it worth your while. It could have been even better, but it was still worth it even though it doesn't stick with you for long after it's finished.

Labor Day
Labor Day(2014)
½

I quite enjoyed this movie. Kate Winslet was wonderful as usual, Josh Brolin was great as well.
I guess you could say that this is a new take on the Stockholm syndrome, it was all around a heartfelt movie about sorrows and finding love where you least expect it.

Breathe In
Breathe In(2014)

I didn't find this movie to be anything special. It had a good storyline and I think I enjoyed it when watching it, but now when I have to describe in words what I thought of it I honestly don't know. I only really remember some images of the movie to be honest which just proves that the movie was quite forgettable.

The Giant Mechanical Man

I wasn't expecting to enjoy this movie but by the end of it I was already looking forward to a sequel.
This is the best comedy I've seen in a long time. It's so genuine and unique and it has a nice message to go with it as well. You shouldn't judge someone by the way they look, they might just be exactly what you need.

Gravity
Gravity(2013)
½

I've heard quite mixed reviews about this one. Some people don't enjoy it at all whilst others think it's amazing. I ended up quite enjoying it. I got a bit lost in the beginning and didn't really understand how it all started but it was still a good suspenseful movie about the moment you lose your breath, and the journey to finding it again.

Dallas Buyers Club

Incredible acting by both Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto. This was an amazing story that blew me away and really affected me deeply. The actors did an amazing job and are most certainly deserving of the Academy awards.
This is a story about changing who you are for the better and realising that everyone derves a chance.

Inside Llewyn Davis

Good acting and a good soundtrack but it just never seemed to get anywhere. It was very slow and nothing really happened in it, which is a shame.

The Wedding Planner
½

This is an average comedy about falling for someone you can't have. It was an okay movie except the part of Justin Chambers playing an Italian. Justin Chambers will always be associated as Alex Karev in Grey's Anatomy and he's one of those people who just can't play anyone else because it gets weird. Especially when he has a fake Italian accent.
Other than that it was an okay average comedy that you're probably gonna forget the next day.

The First Time

It's not a movie that I'd choose to see again but it was an okay movie whilst it lasted. It was credible and realistic compared to real life, the actors did a good job. It wasn't that memorable, but it was still a movie to watch when you need to kill time.

Tanner Hall
Tanner Hall(2011)

If you just have a look at the plot and the front cover it looks like a movie that I would usually enjoy. It's been a few months since I saw it now and I can't really remember anything from watching it which just proves that it's easily forgotten. It wasn't at all as good as I'd expected it to be, there was nothing original about it and it's a shame to say, but it's just the same as any other boarding school coming-of-age story out there. This tells you nothing new and overall, you won't remember it the next day.

Delivery Man
Delivery Man(2013)
½

I had no real expectations when watching this movie. I just thought it would be an average comedy. Although it ended up being a really genuine and funny comedy about mistakes and realising what you've missed out on your entire life. It's the most entertaining comedy I've seen in quite a while and I found myself laughing quite a lot during it.

The Talented Mr. Ripley

This was a good psychological thriller. It had suspense, it was shocking and it kept you hooked until the very end. With unexpected twists it always kept you in the loop, wondering what would happen next.

Grace Unplugged
½

This is probably the only time that I'm going to call a movie unpredictable and mean it in a negative sense. I felt quite betrayed by this movie. What I felt was the main storyline was hardly in the movie and it felt like the movie was only focused on a beginning and an end and instead ended up never really telling you anything. It never had time to keep you hooked and entertained because it never got to the place where you started to be in kinship with the characters which is a shame. I'm sad to say that this was a bit of a disappointment. It could have been a lot better.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower
½

This was kind of an all in all average movie. The acting was okay, the directing was okay, the soundtrack was good. It's a movie that's enjoyable whilst watching it, but quite forgettable once it's finished.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Not much really happened in this movie but still the two hours and twenty-six minutes were over pretty quick, I don't really know how that's possible. This movie wasn't as good as the first one but it was still okay. It took a while for it to actually start and it felt like it just ended all of a sudden. After having seen it you don't really understand what it was you were actually watching because it took too long for the action to start and too soon after it had started the movie ended. But it was still an okay sequel all in all.

Teen Beach Movie

I didn't find this movie very funny at all. It felt like it was supposed to be able to be enjoyed by older teens but ended up being way too childish and all over the place. It was unrealistic and just not a very enjoyable disney movie at all.

12 Dates Of Christmas

12 Dates of Christmas was a sweet christmas movie. It was rather predictable and it could get a bit boring when you kept seeing the same scene over and over again. But all in all it was an okay movie to watch at christmas when you're not too attached to the movie anyway because you're spending time with your family.

Mig ager ingen

I didn't really enjoy the book of this movie, not managing to read the last hundred pages of it but I really enjoyed the movie. The acting was incredible from Mikael Persbrandt and Saga Samuelsson. They worked really well together and during the whole movie you were attached to it and wanted to know what would happen next. A very gripping drama about alcoholism and how it doesn't just affect yourself but also everyone around you.

The Spectacular Now
½

The Spectacular Now is exactly what you expect it to be, meaning that if you've seen the trailer and looked forward to seeing it you won't be disappointed. But it's also unpredictable which I enjoyed, I sat through the movie until the end wanting to know what would happen next. The acting was great from both Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley.
It's a good coming-of-age story, the only shame is that it stays with you whilst watching it but it slowly starts to drift away from your memory once it's finished.

City of Ember

Having seen all of Saoirse Ronan's newer films it was interesting to see her first movie after her Academy Award nomination in Atonement.
This was a family adventure of some sort but I found it to be a bit too complicated. I could hardly understand what it was about, so how will then the target audience be able to understand it?
I still managed to sit through it but there was no longing in this movie seeing as you hardly knew what you were watching and that was a shame. A movie like this needs longing. There needs to be something to look forward to, a reason for you to watch it all but it didn't.
Sadly this movie didn't manage to give prominence to the excellent acting that it could have had, seeing as it has an incredible cast. Instead this movie just ended up being a tad mediocre.

Byzantium
Byzantium(2013)

I honestly don't really know what I thought of this movie. It wasn't a typical vampire movie and I appreciate that. It definitely gets a bonus for originality and unpredictability. But that just wasn't enough when it came to Byzantium. It started off good, it had an interesting storyline and some really good narrations. I guess it was just a bit too long and after a while it started getting boring and you started getting distracted.
Despite how many times they tried to tell you the characters' stories you still couldn't really comprehend it all. Saoirse Ronan was amazing as always and Gemma Arterton was great as well. But there was still just too much missing for this movie to be any good.
In some movies all you really need is something original and unpredictable with great acting. But this movie needed something more to prevent me from getting distracted,and sadly it didn't succeed.

Getaway
Getaway(2013)

I must say that I agree with all the terrible reviews that this movie has gotten. The acting was atrocious and this was pretty much a 90 minute long car chase. Which would have been great if there had been any tension or excitement building up to it but there wasn't. It was a car chase from the very beginning until the very end which means that it's taken away all your sympathy that you should normally feel for the characters in a movie like this. But you just didn't care for any of them, you didn't have anyone to root for. It didn't matter what would happen in the end because you just didn't care.
Getaway was boring with no real storyline. Nothing really happened other than being chased by a lot of cars. A movie like this needs tension and excitement and this one just had a lack of everything that makes a really good movie.

Violet & Daisy

Alexis Bledel and Saoirse Ronan were both great in this not-so-great action movie. This movie reminded me a bit of Quentin Tarantino movies, the killing for the killing's sake. By the end of it there's so much killing that you can't even remember why the killing even started and that just results in you not even knowing what the movie is about.
It was okay sitting through it but it just didn't really have a storyline that spoke to you. It had great acting but there was just something else missing from this movie that just ended up making it rather bland and average.

A Case of You

A Case of You has the quite typical storyline and it doesn't really tell you anything new, but I'm glad that it wasn't made into an average romantic comedy, instead it was more of a drama and that made the movie feel more unique than it actually was.
It was different to see Evan Rachel Wood in a movie like this but she did great and so did Justin Long.
It was an okay movie but it felt like it just kept going without really going anywhere. I like the movie's title and that is probably what's going to get people to watching it, it gives a bit of a Woody Allen vibe.
This was a decent movie, it was never boring when watching it but afterwards you can't really remember what actually happened in it.

How I Live Now

I remember reading the book a few years ago but I can't even remember if I actually finished it. I assume that must mean that it wasn't very good. But the movie was.
I think Saoirse Ronan is one of the best young actresses that the UK have to offer and she did a great American accent.
I could still feel that it didn't embrace the important subjects and illegalities the way that it should have done and it would have captured you more if it had.
But other than that this is a movie about life and death and everything in between. It has incredible acting and a great soundtrack and it is a fight. A fight for love and a fight for survival and it is a fight for life. Because when you find the reason to why you are living, it is most certainly worth fighting for.

The Motel Life

Emile Hirsch and Stephen Dorff really carried this movie all the way through. It had incredible acting and astonoshing emotion put into it.
Dakota Fanning was also amazing, in the few scenes that she was in.
This is a movie that you think is amazing when watching it, but when it's gone a day since you saw it you're not really sure what you thought of it anymore.
It might not be a movie that you watch more than once or twice, but it will still manage to capture you when you're watching it. It was beautifully made with its storytelling and animations.
It shows a strong bond between two brothers and it tells you the story of how strong that love really is and how unbreakable a bond can be, when it's with someone you really love.

16-love
16-love(2012)
½

16-love doesn't tell you anything new. We've seen it all before in movies. We've read about it all before in books. A number one ranked athlete gets injured, falls in love and all of a sudden everything isn't about the sport anymore. This movie didn't take the storyline to a whole new level. But it was a feel-good movie and it managed to make you feel good about yourself.

Love Me
Love Me(2012)
½

Love Me was easy to sit through but it wasn't as exciting as it could have been. From the very beginning you have your mind set up, and this made it more difficult to fully understand the end. You didn't really feel surprised seeing as you didn't experience that excitement from the very beginning.
It doesn't really have anything special or unique about it, but it was never boring. It had a good soundtrack and it was easy to keep yourself seated until the very end.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is a movie that we've all seen before. It's a combination between Harry Potter, Twilight and Beautiful Creatures. If you're looking for something unpredictable, this movie isn't the right one to watch. But nonetheless, it still managed to entertain you and keep you seated until the very end.
Some scenes were a bit of a cliché, but in a good way, and some parts of the movie were a bit difficult to understand.
Both Lily Collins and Robert Sheehan are American but pretty much the rest of the cast are British. They never really told you if it's supposed to be like that or if some of them are just terrible at doing a decent accent, which could make the watching of the movie a bit confusining.
Even though there were a lot of action going on I felt like I didn't really feel as much tension and excitement as I'd been hoping for. But it's definitely an okay movie and you might have to see it a few times to fully understand it.

Haunter
Haunter(2013)

I found this movie incredibly difficult to understand to be honest. I'd read the summary in beforehand, but it still felt like I was watching an entirely different movie.
When I started watching it I really did think that this would be one of those unpredictable horror movies, but it just wasn't. Everything just kept happening over and over again and it wasn't made in a good way. Seeing as it just ended up boring you, instead of intensifying the excitement.
I kept waiting in angst for this movie to scare me, but the scary parts just wasn't that scary. Had I not read the summary I wouldn't really have understood this movie's storyline at all. Because it just doesn't tell you anything, you don't find out anything by watching it. By the end of it, all it really ended up being was a disappointment

And While We Were Here

And While We Were Here could have been a lot better than what it ended up being. It was a bit too short and it took too long until the main story even started.
I tend to like movies like this. Movies with extraordinary imagery and a certain vagueness to it all. But some parts were just left unsaid, that should have been told for you to understand it more. Everything was pretty much told through dialogue, which means that they left out a lot that needed to be there.
Even though the photography was amazing, you still started to wonder by the end of it, what did they really want to say by making this movie? Because it felt like everything started and ended so abruptly. It took about an hour for the whole point of it all to begin, but then the whole movie ended twenty minutes later.
I wanted more. But other than that it was a beautiful movie. It only really has four actors in it but it still managed to tell a story about alienation and neglect, betrayal and seclusion.

Some Girl(s)
Some Girl(s)(2013)

I can see now that this movie is based on a play, because it felt more like theatre when watching it. The movie is pretty much only based on dialogue and all the information that you get on the different characters are through their dialogue with each other.
I found this movie rather boring to be honest. It had a storyline but that's all it really had. It never really managed to take you anywhere. It didn't really have a beginning or an end. It was just a bundle of dialogues with five different people and nothing really happened.
You never got to know the characters the way that you would have hoped. Instead you just felt distracted, hoping for it all to end. And by the end of it, all it really left you with was emptiness and memory loss.

Don Jon
Don Jon(2013)

I didn't really have any expectations when I went in and saw this movie and I don't know if that was a good or a bad thing. After having seen it I really don't know what I think of it.
I must praise Joseph Gordon-Levitt for daring to write a script like this, and to also be able to direct it and act in it. It must have been challenging and I admire him for his courage of taking on a role like Jon in this movie.
I can understand that this movie is playing with the stereotypes in typical media but for me it just ended up feeling fake.
I think Scarlett Johansson is an amazing actress, but when the first image of her in the movie is her hanging by the bar being drop dead gorgeous in a red dress that shows some cleavage and she ends up being the girl who is after something serious and only watches romantic Hollywood movies, I just ended up finding her character fake. Or at least the way that they had portrayed her. I'm also not quite sure how a New Jersey accent sounds like but I just found it disturbing in this movie. I felt like I wanted to be able to relate to her character but I couldn't.
I also think Julianne Moore is an amazing actress, but I felt like her age was a big question mark that was never really answered in the movie. She probably would have suited better playing Scarlett Johansson's character and the other way around. And this was probably a big point of the movie but they just didn't do it well enough for me to believe in it. The first image of Julianne Moore in this movie is her standing by a door crying and you would think that she'd be the one that is interested in relationships and love, but instead she's the one who understands Jon better than he does himself.
With that said I found this to be an embarrassing, but also an intriguing movie. You might have to read between the lines to find the true depth about it and to fully understand it though.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt did great in his directorial debut but I just had a hard time seeing Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore in a movie like this and they've done a lot better in their other work.

Robots
Robots(2005)

I saw this movie dubbed to Swedish, but I still found it to be an okay and entertaining animated movie. I don't tend to like movies where there aren't actual real people in it, but this one was somewhat entertaining and it was easy to sit through it.

As Cool As I Am

I didn't really have any expectations when watching this movie and I was happily surprised. I have only seen Sarah Bolger in two movies before this one and I was happy to see her act again. Her appearence as a sixteen-year-old was very credible despite the fact of her being twenty-two in real life.
Claire Danes and James Marsden were great as the parents even if I found some of the parenting skills rather unrealistic.
I could also find that other situations in the movie were a bit unrealistic and that they needed to show you more of the situation to make you understand the concept better.
Other than that it was a great movie about a teenager who has taught herself to be the grown up, because her parents who had her when they were her age is incapable of growing up themselves.
The movie had a great soundtrack and even though it felt like it didn't have a beginning, middle or end, it was still a pleasure to sit through it.

Diana
Diana(2013)

This movie was neither good, nor was it bad. It was okay. It was easy to sit through it and I felt that I found out a lot about Princess Diana's life that I didn't already know.
I was a bit sceptical when it came to Naomi Watts' acting, she wasn't as good as I would have expected her to be. And even though she is a British actress, her accent felt a bit fake.
It's not a movie that will stay with you for very long after having seen it, but it's still an okay and instructive experience.

Uptown Girls
Uptown Girls(2003)

I guess this movie is just like any feel-good movie, you forget what happened after you have watched it. Which is the main reason to why you would want to see it again.
It was okay, but it's pretty much already forgotten. Dakota Fanning is the reason why you should see the movie. Because it didn't really feel like the movie was about anything.
I would have hoped for a bigger transition in Brittany Murphy's character, she's supposed to be this grown up who learns how to grow up but it never really felt like she learned the lesson.

Hide and Seek

Hide and Seek is a psychological thriller about death and life and all the obstacles that comes with it, just maybe not the obstacles that usual families are used to.
I actually did enjoy this movie and I did sit at the edge of my seat, but still for some reason I wasn't so captured by it all by the end. Even though I wasn't expecting the conclusion, I wasn't surprised.
Dakota Fanning was amazing but other than that you don't remember much of it afterwards.

Country Strong

I don't really know the last time when I enjoyed a movie this much, but I really enjoyed it. Country Strong made you fall in love. I fell in love with the music, I fell in love with the characters, I fell in love with the actors.
I have never found Gwyneth Paltrow to be a good actress, but I'm glad that I was pleasantly surprised by her in this one. I didn't get irritated by her, or anyone else for that matter. I just saw it from start to finish without having anything to complain on.
The soundtrack was astonishing, the music gave me goosebumps. This movie managed to appeal to me from the first sentence until the very end and the amazing music and lyrics was definitely the icing on the cake.

At Any Price
At Any Price(2013)

I honestly had a hard time understanding what the point of this movie was. I didn't really understand what the main storyline was and when it eventually took up subjects that are worth talking about, the movie just forgot bout them and never felt the need to tell you more about them.
This just made a lot of the movie feel unrealistic, if they had put more emotion and depth into this movie it would have been a lot better. Seeing as the acting really wasn't that great, it needed something more to make the people watching it feel something.

To The Wonder

To The Wonder was a difficult movie to comprehend. Had I not read the summary in beforehand I probably would have understood it less than I do now. This movie doesn't tell you much, it is all about the beauty in the photography. Almost everything that is said is through voiceovers in different languages: French, Spanish, English, Russian and Italian.
I usually have a hard time with movies where they speak languages that I don't naturally understand, but it wasn't a problem in this movie seeing as everything they said were more like lyricism, poems. It was all so poetic and it was easy to read the subtitles and understand what they were saying even when you might not necessarily understand the movie's wholeness.
I loved how this movie was so beautiful and how it pretty much told you everything by just showing you moving images, but that can sometimes be a problem and I found it quite disturbing when it came to this movie. It's always annoying watching something and not being able to understand it. And in this case it was difficult to understand seeing as they jumped in time and forgot to show you things that they should have which just makes it all confusing.
It doesn't tell you how it all begins or how it ends or what happens in the middle, instead you have to decide for yourself. This movie should have told you more, it doesn't even tell you the characters names except in the credits and the relationships that they had with each other.
I can imagine this being quite a difficult movie to act in, and to direct. Seeing as everything is in slow motion and the actors didn't really have that much to say. And the director had to have been really sure of what he wanted to present to be able to develop such a beauty as he did in this movie. But beauty is all it really has going for it, and to be something that is worth seeing again and recommending to other people, it should have something more.

Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Ain't Them Bodies Saints wasn't as good as I'd hoped it would be. I don't know why. Maybe it was that the trailer made me believe that it was about something that it wasn't. Because I had quite a hard time understanding the movie when watching it.
It says that it's supposed to be set against the backdrop of 1970's Texas Hill Country, but some parts of the movie made it feel more like it was the 19th Century.
The imagery was absolutely beautiful and the acting was astonishing, from both Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck. They did a great accent and they made this movie believable even when you didn't really understand it. They - and the amazing directorial effort - are the reason to watch this movie. That is the reason why you'll be somewhat amazed by the end of it. It's just a shame that the main movie was a disappointment and that it was a struggle sitting through it, despite the acting skills and the pure beauty of it all.

Ond tro (Bad Faith)

I couldn't understand this movie at all I'm afraid. From the very beginning I had a hard time to concentrate and it never really left me feeling anything. I would have wanted to sit at the edge of my seat, wanting to know what would happen next, but it only really left me confused.
I had a hard time understanding what this movie was about, it felt more like a drama with a few thriller sequences which just made the movie even more blurry than it already was. For every second that you look away from the screen, all the more confused you get.
This movie also felt incredibly unrealistic at times which just made it all even more confusing. There's not one single part of this movie that I actually understood and by the end of it I just had to ask myself the question, what did I just watch?

Nobody Walks
Nobody Walks(2012)

Nobody Walks is a beautiful and poetic movie about life and noise. But the problem with it is that you won't remember it by the end of it. A movie like this needs to be remembered afterwards for it to live forwards. But this one didn't.
I tend to like movies that make you think. Movies that have vague and thought-provoking titles and astonishing photography, but this movie was too slow for me. Not much happened and you kept waiting to be dragged into the storyline but you never really were. A lot of the actors also looked the same which made it all confusing, trying to piece the people together and figuring out which relationship all the characters had with each other.
This movie didn't really tell you much, it lets you figure it out yourself. Sometimes that can be an advantage, but I found it being more of a disadvantage in this one. This might be one of those movies that you have to see more than once to fully understand it, but also to be able to appreciate it for what it is. But right now, I found it to be a disappointment, I didn't really feel anything for the characters and I pretty much ended up feeling empty.

Stuck in Love

Stuck in Love ended up being an incredible movie about love and friendship, writing and addiction. It was one of those movies that made you feel every feeling possible when watching it: anger, happiness, sadness, grief.
This movie will make you laugh and cry, it will make you all warm inside but it will also make your heart ache.
The soundtrack was amazing and the acting was impeccable, especially from Lily Collins and Jennifer Connelly. I haven't been that blown away by Lily Collins in her other movies but in this one you really started to feel for her character's pain and you started to see the emotion behind her and that shows pure talent.
This is definitely a movie that you can watch more than twice.

I skuggan av varmen

I skuggan av värmen (direct translation: In the Shadow of the Warmth) is a beautiful movie that really tugs at the heartstrings. This movie takes up subjects such as addiction and love. It also teaches you that letting someone else help you doesn't mean that you're a failure, it just means that you're not alone.
Fantastic imagery, but it could also be confusing, maybe that was the art of it. I haven't really figured that one out yet. I found that the acting could be great and credible in some scenes and unrealistic in others. Depending on which situation the actors had to act in. But I'm not really sure if it had to do with them being bad actors, or if it just was a bad manuscript.
This movie will make your body ache until the very end when it will gradually start to heal. But there were still parts that were difficult to understand at first and you might need to see the movie a few times to fully understand it and to know what your genuine opinion is of it.

The Kings of Summer
½

The Kings of Summer is a coming-of-age story about independence and survival, friendship and growing up. There were a few things that I couldn't quite piece together and it felt like it took a while for the main story to really begin. It was also difficult to comprehend the movie's timeline and how much time had passed since certain sequences.
But other than that this ended up being quite an entertaining and different story. It's a story for parents, teaching them how hard it can be to know how to raise your children, especially when being alone. And it's a story for the children, everyone needs there independence but you don't necessarily have to run away to experience it.
This was a movie that might remind you of either Stand By Me or Mud. Teenage boys trying to come of age in a unique and profound way. Even if it takes a while to enjoy it, it ended up being worth it.

The Bling Ring

The Bling Ring is a movie based on true events that tries to set aside reality from fantasy. Emma Watson did a great American accent and it was a different role for her. But other than that, it was quite difficult to get into it. It felt like nothing really happened and the same thing just kept happening over and over again without showing you anything new. So all you really did was wait for something to happen, but it never really did.
It had a good message and I can't believe that it's actually based on events that have happened in real life. That people are so obssessed with celebrities and luxury that they would break into a house to be a part of it. I hope this movie will send a message to everyone who sees it. That you should realise that everyone has the right to their life and that we shouldn't try to become a part of something that we don't belong in.

About Time
About Time(2013)

All I really knew about this movie before I started watching it was that it was a romantic comedy, that it was directed by the same director who directed Love Actually and that it was about time travelling. It's fair to say that my expectations weren't really that high and I thought it all sounded a bit odd. But I ended up really enjoying this movie. Richard Curtis sure knows this genre well and has a way of putting pure British humour into a movie.
Sometimes it was difficult to put the puzzle pieces together and to understand how things were connected with each other but other than that it was a really enjoyable comedy about time. What if you could go back in time and change scenes from your life until they become perfect? What would you change? But this movie proves that life isn't perfect and that you should live to appreciate what you have right in front of you, because even when you have the ability to travel in time, you can't change everything.

Pretty Woman
Pretty Woman(1990)
½

It was quite difficult to get into this movie but it managed to get enjoyable by the end of it. It had a great soundtrack and it taught you that love can come in mysterious ways. It also taught you that you should always be open for love because it can come when you least expect it.

Baby Mama
Baby Mama(2008)

I found this movie rather lame. All I wanted to do when watching it was scream at the people in it because they just kept getting on my nerves.
It was a storyline that we've all seen before and even though some aspects of it were new they just didn't feel new. It was kind of boring when watching it but it did manage to kill time. Although by the end of it, it will already be forgotten.

Sunshine
Sunshine(2007)
½

I felt that I had a hard time understanding this movie from the very beginning. I felt that it didn't really tell me anything and things kept happening that I didn't even know was happening which made the whole watching of the movie confusing.
I wanted to comprehend it more but from the very start of the movie I didn't really know what it was I was watching, which is why by the end of it all I really felt was emptiness.

Couples Retreat

Couples Retreat is an average enjoyable movie. It's easy to sit through it and it doesn't put you to sleep but it doesn't show you anything new either. It's okay when watching it but once it's all finished you won't even know what you thought of it in the first place. It's a movie to watch when you just need to kill time seeing as you don't have to think when watching it, but overall it was just average and nothing more than that. It had nothing that was different from anything else.

Silk
Silk(2007)
½

Silk was a beautiful movie, the direction and the imagery was absolutely astonishing. But some things could still be quite difficult to comprehend. Sometimes it was the beauty of it, you didn't need to understand every obstacle of this movie to fully appreciate it. But sometimes it could be confusing, some things needed to be understood so you could follow what was happening more clearly. For example the movie's timeline and the transportation routes, you never really knew how much time had passed or where the people were and that meant that you couldn't really catch up in the movie's storyline.
Other than that this was a movie with pure beauty and that is what is keeping you seated. The artistic images showing you a life of love and regret, a life of distance and survival. Beauty can show you so much without using many words and that is what this movie did.

Disturbia
Disturbia(2007)
½

It took about an hour for this movie to start but still for some reason it managed to keep my interest. Even though you kept waiting for something major to happen that never really happened it was still easy to sit through it. But this movie would have needed a few turning points for it to be any better, everything seemed to move so smoothly despite its suspense storyline.

Grown Ups
Grown Ups(2010)

I didn't really think that this movie was about anything relevant. It's a comedy that didn't even manage to make me laugh once. It just kept moving forward without anything really happening and by the end of it nothing will really be remembered. I can't say I'm that anticipated to see how the second one will turn out.

Kiss Me (With Every Heartbeat)

This movie ended up being a lot better than I expected it to be. I was hooked to the screen until the very end.
I couldn't really feel the chemistry at the beginning of it but throughout the movie I started to believe in it more and more. Although it was never anything that really bothered me that much. It could sometimes be difficult to hear what they said because the voices were a bit low and droned.
But other than that this was a really good movie about acceptance and believing in yourself and trying to figure out who you really are.

The Prestige
The Prestige(2006)

It was easy to sit through The Prestige without getting bored but it was still quite difficult to fully understand it.
It jumped in time a bit without you knowing how many years or what had happened in between which could make it pretty hard to comprehend the rest of the movie.
It was also hard to put the puzzle pieces together and by the end of it there wasn't much of the movie that you truly understood, but still for some reason it managed to be quite a decent movie after all.

Not Another Teen Movie

I have never really been a fan of parodies, and this wasn't an exception. When watching a movie I like to be able to take it seriously, which I can't when they're making fun of everything.
All I could think about when watching it was, who on earth would even want to be in a movie like this?
It was a little bit better than Movie 43 but it wasn't that far off. It was easy to sit through it but the immatury of it definitely decreases the rating quite a bit.

Gone in 60 Seconds (Gone in Sixty Seconds)

From the very beginning of the movie all I really wanted was for it all to end. I felt distracted and I could hardly keep my eyes on it for one second. I hardly even understood what it was about and it didn't make me energetic the way that I would have hoped. I rarely watched the screen, but I think I saw enough to know that it was a poor example of an action movie.

How Stella Got Her Groove Back

This movie just seemed to move forward without anything really happening. It felt like they kept making a big deal of something that wasn't really a big deal.
The movie never surprised me or made me want to find out what would happen next the way that I would've hoped. On the other hand, it wasn't boring or tiring but still it didn't give me a reason to stay and watch the end. I managed to sit through it, but now that it's finished I can hardly remember what it was about.

I Am Legend
I Am Legend(2007)
½

I didn't really understand this movie. To be honest, I found it a bit lame. The dog and the conversations with mannequins, believing that they're real, just didn't appeal to me.
It was difficult to understand what was happening in present time and what was a flashback which made the watching of the movie quite confusing. The movie also felt a bit unrealistic at times and it was hard to follow what was going on. In the end I just didn't see the point of it and it ended up disappointing me.

Edge of Darkness

I didn't really understand this movie that much. The storyline began too quickly and it was difficult to comprehend which part Mel Gibson played in it all. He didn't seem to be grieving the way that he should and his occupation was a bit confusing since you didn't really understand which role it played. Everything just moved forward without you knowing what was going on. And the things that you eventually found out that should have surprised you just didn't. This movie was just a long wait for it all to end and once it did all you really felt was relief.

Enough
Enough(2002)
½

I quite enjoyed this movie to be honest. I wasn't so keen on the beginning and the way they chose to tell us how it all began, but when the main storyline started to act out on screen the movie became really good.
This is a movie where you have to have your eyes on the screen at all times or you'll miss something important but it wasn't hard to keep them there. Some things could be difficult to understand and it could sometimes be hard to comprehend how the characters were connected with each other, but it was never really anything that disturbed you from enjoying the rest.
You never got bored and wanted the movie to end, instead you were hooked to your seat and wanted to know what would happen next.
This wasn't a movie that needed great acting but you still never got frustrated with any of the actors, instead you were engaged in the action until the very end.

The Messenger

I truly didn't see the point of this movie. It didn't have a storyline that made me want to sit through it for one second longer. Because it felt like it wasn't even about anything and too much happened for me to even be able to grieve with the people it's all happening to. This was without a doubt boring from the first second of it until the very end.
I thought this movie would be worth watching for Jena Malone. But it's not even worth watching for her, seeing as she was only in about three scenes. I was truly disappointed, I felt distracted when watching it and the whole movie was spent waiting for it to end. And it sure felt like it never did.

Eat Pray Love

Eat Pray Love wasn't at all as good as I'd hoped for it to be. You pretty much have to be able to relate to this movie for you to actually appreciate it. And I just couldn't relate to it. It was about something that was so far from who I am that it just couldn't be appreciated for what it was.
A lot of the actors also happened to look too much alike that it made the movie confusing and it took you a while to understand who the character on screen was.
I felt a bit distracted by it all and it never really seemed to move forward. Not much happened in it. I managed to sit through it but by the end of it there's not much that will be remembered.

Wind Chill
Wind Chill(2007)
½

I didn't expect Wind Chill to be quite as "jumpy" as it ended up being. I jumped more times to this movie than I'd like to admit.
Emily Blunt did a great American accent and the movie managed to tell you everything that you needed to know without it getting redundant. I also thought it was smart how the characters didn't have any names, this resulted in the movie only being about the storyline and the plot and nothing else.
I could still feel a tiny bit distracted at times and it could sometimes move forward a bit slowly but other than that it was a good thriller, it reminded me a bit of Frozen, but I'm afraid that I prefered Frozen more.

Passengers
Passengers(2008)

Passengers really wasn't as good as it could have been. It didn't leave you surprised the way that you should have been by a movie like this.
I just never really felt anything for the characters and I felt a bit distracted because there was nothing holding me to the screen and what was happening on it.
I loved the storyline but everything just happened a bit too fast which means that I never really had time to feel anything when watching it.

Along Came Polly
½

Along Came Polly is one of those comedies that will kill time when you're bored but it's nothing more than that.
Jennifer Aniston felt a bit misplaced in this movie and Ben Stiller was a terrible actor, as usual.
This was just a mediocre movie that didn't tell me anything or make me feel something, it just continued without anything really happening. It didn't really have a turning point or anything really that made me want to see how it would end. It's rather predictable but it is okay if you need something to do for one hour and half.

One True Thing
½

At first it took a while to understand what was actually happening in present time and what was flashbacks, but after a while you started to understand the movie's structure.
The acting was great and Meryl Streep's make-up and hair was amazing throughout the movie. I'm probably one of the few people who have never understood the hype of Meryl Streep, but I guess I must say that she was pretty good in this one. Renée Zellweger was pretty good as well.
Even though you basically knew the end from the very beginning you almost forgot about it and still wanted to know how it all would end. But I could still feel that it was a bit too long and after a while you got distracted and just wanted the end credits to start rolling.
It didn't feel like it was telling you anything new, it was just another one of those cancer movies and I didn't really feel that movied by it, the way that I had hoped.

The Lifeguard

The Lifeguard was quite an okay movie, even though there were things that it forgot to tell you that you'd want to know for everything to be easier for you.
This movie should for example have more lines of thoughts for it all to be more understandable. In the summary it says that she enters into an illicit affair, but the affair doesn't really seem that illicit when watching it.
To make the people watching it more thrilled and excited by it they should make it feel more illegal so we have something to root for. The movie could feel a bit too cheesy at times when you didn't feel the hook to it.
But other than that it was pretty entertaining, it was easy to sit through it and it never bored you when watching it.

The Glass House
½

I can't really explain why I ended up quite enjoying this movie. It is rather predictable, we've seen it all before and it doesn't really show us anything new. But it was still easy to sit through it without getting bored.
I could still feel that there was a lot missing for this movie to be better though. It needed more action, it needed more reasons. When watching it you started asking so many questions, but none of them were really answered.
Everything started so quickly and ended so abrupt that you couldn't really remember how it all began.
When it comes to credibility I believe you can probably find loads of errors, but when it comes to enjoyment it wasn't so bad sitting through it all. Even though you don't remember much of it once it's finished.

Girl, Interrupted

Girl, Interrupted is a story about self discovery. It's about finding out who you really are.
The acting was great from both Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie but it felt like the director, or whoever wrote the script, weren't that informed on the technicalities and the fashion sense of the 60's. Because it didn't really feel like the 60's when watching it and the movie contained a few things that just happened to be a bit too modern for that decade.
Sometimes I felt that I had a hard time following what was going on and putting the puzzle pieces back together. I felt that the reasons for the patients being at the psychic ward were understated, you never really understood why they were there to begin with. And even if you new why, you could never really see the symptoms as clearly as you would have wanted.
Other than that it was an okay movie, it was only the lack of credibility and realism that made it rather confusing. It was still easy to sit through it though, the acting from the all star cast was astonishing and the change that they'd made to Angelina Jolie's beauty was amazing. She played the characer that was probably easiest to believe in, but still hardest to understand.

The Cottage
The Cottage(2008)
½

To be honest, I found this movie rather boring. This isn't the kind of thriller/horror movie that I tend to enjoy usually, and this wasn't an exception. It never really told you what you needed to know, instead you had to figure it out by yourself. It took ages until things actually started to happen and by then you were already pretty distracted that you couldn't get on track again.
It did manage to make me jump once or twice, but it's not even close to being able to give me nightmares, and by tomorrow it will probably be forgotten already.

Half Nelson
Half Nelson(2006)
½

I had hoped for something so much more with this movie. You never really got into it and its storyline just didn't come across as appealing when watching it. It didn't feel like it was about anything relevant and it was difficult to keep your eyes to the screen.
The title of it feels a bit too deep for a movie like this and I'm sorry to say that the acting wasn't even the highlight of the movie because this movie didn't have a highlight. All it really had was a waiting room, in angst for it to end.

I Love You Phillip Morris
½

I Love You Philip Morris was another one of those comedies about homosexuality. Usually it's great when a filmmaker can take a serious subject and make it into something humourous but sometimes it just doesn't work. I wanted to take this movie and this subject seriously but I couldn't because of the way it was acted out and how it felt like they were making fun of it instead.
I've never really been a fan of Jim Carrey and this wasn't an exception, he's a terrible actor when he's in comedies and still he tends to play a lot of comedic roles. But still he was quite an okay actor in the few more serious scenes that this movie had to offer.
Ewan McGregor on the other hand is usually a great actor, but he ended up being a bit of a disappointment in this one. It felt like he ridiculed himself to be able to play this role which made it even more difficult to take it seriously.
I felt that things sometimes happened a bit too fast and it was hard to follow what was happening on screen. In the end I just wanted to believe that this movie had an important message, but it just didn't come across the way that you would have hoped.

Feast of Love

Feast of Love shows you all kinds of different ways to fall in love: love at first sight, homosexuality, infidelity, young love, old love, marriage.
It was easy to sit through it and it had a great soundtrack but it sometimes felt like it jumped too fast between the scenes that it took a while to figure out which couple the next scene was about. And there were things that the movie decided not to tell you and it could sometimes be difficult to fill in the gaps.
But other than that I enjoyed it, it was a well-thought movie about love and all of its obstacles and consequences. Despite everything that happens it felt credible and realistic but I can imagine that it must be difficult to find an ending for a movie like this, and I'm not quite sure if this ending was right.

Something to Talk About
½

Something to Talk About wasn't quite the way I expected it to be. I didn't really get into the story the way I thought I would. The characters were rather difficult to relate to and the acting wasn't that great either.
I had expected more emotion and heartache but I didn't really feel anything for any of the characters in it and I kept waiting for what would happen next instead of being locked in the now.
I found the characters' reactions to the situation a tad unrealistic which resulted in me not being able to relate to them. And by the end of it all I didn't really feel much and I wished I would have felt a lot more.
There were scenes that should have been in the movie to make it easier to fully comprehend but weren't, and there were probably also scenes that were in the movie but maybe shouldn't have. This made it more difficult to follow the story and actually enjoy it.

An American Crime
½

An American Crime was a shocking movie based on a true story. It was without a doubt a real eye opener for what happens in this world. I wasn't really well-grounded into this case when watching this movie and maybe you should have known more about the true story to know exactly which amount of it was fiction. But it still managed to affect me in a very special way. It still ended up having its surprises even though you knew how the story would end.
Catherine Keener was great as Gertrude Baniszewski and Ellen Page was absolutely astonishing as Sylvia Likens.
This movie really made you think, you never really knew why it happened but that just made you even more captivated by the story. It was a thrilling story and it will make you wonder even after the end credits have rolled, but there was still a hint of emotion and feeling missing for this movie to be even better than it already was.

Duplicity
Duplicity(2009)

It was actually quite difficult to keep up with what was going on in Duplicity. It jumped way too much in time that in the end you just didn't know the chronological order of what was happening in the movie. This made it difficult to comprehend the main storyline since all you really did when watching it was trying to figure out the movie's timeline.
The movie also felt a bit too long and it always felt like it was about to end when it wasn't. The acting wasn't that great either and overall this just wasn't one of the better spy/agent movies out there. It was rather below average and the time changes definitely made so you couldn't enjoy it and you never really got into it the way that you would have hoped with a movie like this.

Mud
Mud(2013)
½

Mud is a story about love and courage. It's an adventure coming-of-age story about coming to the terms with what real love really is.
Even though the movie has a thought provoking storyline told mainly from the eyes of two fourteen year old boys, for me this movie wasn't about the plot. It wasn't about the adventure. I didn't feel that there was anyone I really rooted for, I didn't feel that I was dragged into the story the way that you're meant to be with a movie like this.
For me this movie is all about the acting and the direction of it. I've never seen Matthew McConaughey in a movie like this before, but he most certainly pulled it off and he showed that he's actually a really great actor when put in more serious roles. Reese Withrspoon, the main reason that I even watched it to begin with, was only in about five scenes but she was most certainly amazing the few times that you actually saw her on screen. It's been a while since she's been in a more serious role but this movie definitely managed to show you what an amazing actress she truly is.
Then of course, I also have to praise Tye Sheridan and Jacob Lofland who played Ellis and Neckbone. They were both incredible as the two fourteen year old boys who carried the whole movie to its very core.
The whole acting ensemble were absolutely astonishing in this movie and by the end of it, that is what I'll be remembering.

What Maisie Knew
½

What Maisie Knew is a story about alienation and neglect. It's about a battle between two parents for the child that they can't even raise to begin with.
This movie was quite simple in its own complicated way. Because it's seen through the eyes of a six year old there was a lot of scenes that were left out and basically you have to put the puzzle pieces together yourself, hence both the simple and complicated part of the movie. The structure of the movie and the abrupt scene changes made it rather easy going and the having to figure out what's happened before that the movie won't tell you can sometimes make it difficult to comprehend at first.
The movie wasn't as easy to get into as I'd first thought it would be but for the remarkable performance from Onata Aprile, this is a movie that everyone should see. I don't know when I was last blown away by such a young actress but she most certainly pulled this movie together and she is the main reason why you should watch it. Her and possibly Alexander Skarsgårds amazng American accent.

World War Z
World War Z(2013)

World War Z wasn't quite the way I'd expected for some reason. The main storyline started at the very beginning of the movie and it all started with the suspense that you'd been looking forward to but still for some reason I just couldn't get into it. For some reason it felt like not much really happened, the storyline started so fast that you started wondering what would happen for the next hundred minutes.
There were so many questions that never really got answered and in the end you didn't even know the reason for the storyline. The reason for why it was happening which was the reason that you lost focus whilst watching it. The acting was great even though by the end of it it was quite difficult to comprehend what it had actually been about. It was pretty much as easily forgotten as it was watching it.

I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry was an oddly unrealistic comedy about homosexuality. But instead of feeling like they were supporting it and trying to get a message across, it felt more like they were making fun of it.
I guess it's good how they show how some homosexuals are treated in this society and maybe that is the message, to make us stop. Make us see that everyone's just the same and that we should treat them that way. But I just didn't see the point of it. The scenes that you could see were meant to be funny, just weren't.
The movie had a storyline that was a bit too complex to fully comprehend, the movie didn't really have any turning points that made you want to continue watching it or a conflict resolution that made it feel finished once the end credits started rolling.
I guess I just never really understood what it was I was watching. And seeing as the acting from Adam Sandler and Kevin James was absolutely atrocious it didn't exactly make it better. I managed to sit through it, just about, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else.

The Way Way Back

I don't really know what I think of The Way, Way Back to be honest. It took a while for the storyline to actually begin and I was hoping that Annasophia Robb would have had a bigger part of the plot but still for some reason I quite enjoyed it. In the end it was quite an enjoyable coming-of-age story even though you're not sure if he actually does come of age. It felt like the movie never really had a turning point and that nothing really changed. But at the same time it was an enjoyable ride the first time, but something tells me that it probably won't the second time around.

Taken
Taken(2009)
½

Taken was a tense action movie with a lot of suspense and I sat on the edge of my seat until the very end. It was exciting all the way through even though it might have been a bit more thrilling and realistic if the protagonist hadn't been quite that good. But all in all it was the father's love for his daughter that really kept this movie going and I'm quite interested to see what the second movie has to offer.

The Oranges
The Oranges(2012)

I can't say that I enjoyed this movie that much, and the fact that I happened to see an audio descriptive version of it didn't really make it any better. Everything just happened too fast. The main storyline was practically over after the first twenty minutes and then you basically just wondered what would happen during the last sixty minutes of it.
I found the characters confusing and figuring out who was playing who was to be honest quite confusing as well. But maybe I have the audio description to blame for that.
Nothing really happened and I found the characters quite plane, I couldn't really relate to any of them the way that I had hoped and a lot of it just felt quite unrealistic. By the end of it all you really felt was emptiness.

The Lone Ranger

This movie might be worth watching for the last half an hour of it but before that you're pretty much in need of an eye speculum to keep your eyes open.
I guess this is pretty much a western version of Pirates of the Caribbean, but The Lone Ranger unfortunately doesn't even come close to being as exciting and entertaining as Pirates of the Caribbean was.
The acting wasn't that great either. Johnny Depp says about five whole sentences during this two and half journey and I never really felt anything for any of the characters.
I hardly had any expectations when watching it, but I still left feeling slightly disappointed.

Spring Breakers

I still don't quite know what my opinion of Spring Breakers is. Should I see it as some sort of parody or should I take it seriously? I can't really take a movie like this seriously. I can't really be captured by something like this. All the way through it I kept waiting for somethng more. I kept waiting for something more dramatic and provocative to happen but it never really did. I kept wondering what the message was, making this movie but I never really came up with anything.
This movie was very different for all of the actors as well, which for some reason, made that I couldn't quite take them seriously either. It was okay though, even though you might not understand what's happening you weren't bored with it but still it's a movie that won't be remembered for very long.

Stoker
Stoker(2013)

I really thought Stoker was going to be one of those edge-of-your-seat thought-provoking psychological thrillers that haven't been made in a while. But instead I don't know what I ended up watching.
It took about an hour until things actually started happening and even then nothing really happened.
This movie never really gave you any questions to ask and the few questions that you did have - what is this movie even about? - weren't even answered.
It was difficult to put the puzzle pieces together which is why there was never really an attracting force that made you want to continue watching it. Instead you just kept waiting for it all to end.
Incredible imagery and amazing filmmaking but that is technically the only positive things that I can say about this movie.

The Kitchen
The Kitchen(2013)
½

Well basically the trailer of this movie made it seem a lot better than it actually was. Which might quite often be the case.
The idea of the movie was great and it always kept you going even though it was only filmed in one room.
Somehow it wasn't quite as good as I'd expected, but I don't really know what I expected if it wasn't this. This is the way I should have expected it but still I ended up being somewhat disappointed.
I enjoyed the plot of the movie and the idea but I think somewhere along the lines it felt a bit too unrealistic for me to be able to follow. And maybe that's where the movie ended up losing me.
This movie is a bit of an in-between. Because I was never bored watching it, but I wasn't hooked to it either. It was an okay movie, but it's difficult to recall my actual thoughts of it, now, after having seen it.

A Golden Christmas 3

I don't really know what I think of this movie. The main storyline of it started when the movie was about to end. And when the movie eventually did end the ending was rather hasty compared to the exceptionally long beginning that it had.
Basically not much happened at all and once the movie was finished it was pretty much forgotten already. It was pretty cute and cheesy, just the way you'd expect with a movie like this. The only problem is that now when I'm about to review the movie I can hardly even remember it.

Warm Bodies
Warm Bodies(2013)
½

Warm Bodies was different from any movie that I've ever seen before. It was an interesting take on the romantic horror genre. In this movie it was from the zombie's perspective in a very interesting and throught-provoking way.
Nicholas Hoult was great as R, he really carried the whole movie and made it alive when his only words were pretty much said through voiceovers. Despite his few words you believed in R and Julie and the chemistry between them.
A very fascinating movie, you might think that this is like everything else out there. Human falls in love with zombie/vampire, same difference. But this was different. This movie had a voice unlike anything else.
Even though it wasn't difficult to get into the movie it could still feel that not much really happened. But in some way it still managed to keep you entertained and hooked until the very end. It had almost everything that you'd want in a movie: romance, excitement, great acting, a well thought idea, amazing soundtrack and humour. Certainly worth a watch!

The English Teacher
½

To be honest, I enjoyed this movie a lot more than I'd like to admit. This wasn't a movie where it was the storyline and the plot that appealed to me, here it was all about watching the movie. It was the characters and the actors and the humour that made this movie to what it was.
I managed to sit through it until the end and I never thought of turning it off. It had pure wit that made you enjoy it and act when watching it. The storyline in itself didn't really say much, its more about what the director managed to do of the script that made this movie into the worthwhile comedy that it ended up being.

The Ultimate Gift
½

It was during the end credits that I started to understand what this movie was truly about but before that I could hardly comprehend what I was even watching. Through the most part of the movie I was mostly bored and wanted to end it, but basically forced myself to sit through it until the very end.
But there were still scenes that striked me as intriguing and scenes that made me want to sit through the movie until the finish and those scenes were the ones that had Abigail Breslin and Ali Hillis in them. This wasn't a movie that I watched because of the plot and the storyline, and you shouldn't either, this is a movie that I truly watched because of them.
Abigail Breslin was amazing and I'm astonished how she could act so emotionally at such a young age and Ali Hillis was great as the mother. They both made the movie into not as much of a waste compared to what it would have been had they not starred in it.

Hugo
Hugo(2011)

I quite enjoyed this family movie to be honest. It really did feel like the 1930s and I liked the setting and the imagery of it all. Sometimes it felt a bit too long and by the middle of it it felt more like the end. But it was most certainly an adventure and quite an enjoyable one at that.

Young Adult
Young Adult(2011)

Young Adult was basically a movie about determination and confidence in an oddly comedic sense. But I just felt that the movie never really got you anywhere, it never really excited you and it never really made you want to see how the whole story would end. Instead the movie was basically just a long wait until it would all be finished.
I found the movie and the characters a tad unrealistic and I felt like I couldn't really relate to them. In fact I was mainly just really mad at Charlize Theron's character for being so narcissistic and thinking that you can break up a marriage that easily. The truth is, that would even have been a good thing if it in some way had made you use your aggressions whilst watching. But it didn't. Instead you were hoping for it all to end and 90 minutes just happened to feel a bit too long.

The Call
The Call(2013)

To be honest, I really enjoyed this movie. A lot more than I expected. It was gripping, heartbreaking and it had me at the edge of my seat until the very end.
It had great acting performances from Halle Berry and Abigail Breslin and throughout the whole movie I was sitting with my hands covering my mouth in fear that something scary would happen.
The ending might have felt rather unrealistic and they could have ended the story differently, but apart from that it was a mesmerizing thriller about life and death and the power to fight for your life and never give up.

Movie 43
Movie 43(2013)

I clearly don't know what to say about this one. I am without a doubt disgusted. A movie like this shouldn't be allowed to be made. I wanted to see it because of Kate Winslet but now I'm more ashamed of all the actors who are willing to be in a movie like this.
This movie made me sleepless and gave me nightmares because of the disgusting and unappealing comedic scenes that weren't even that funny in the first place. It's not worth any money and to be frank, I am ashamed of having seen it!

My Life in Ruins

My Life in Ruins could have been a lot better but basically I was just waiting for something more throughout the whole movie. I was waiting for something to happen that never really did happen.
It felt like it didn't really have a structured plot and the whole movie was filmed at the same place and I needed more variation.
It was an okay movie and you managed to sit through it, but by the end of it it was pretty much forgotten.

Safe Haven
Safe Haven(2013)

Safe Haven wasn't as much of a tearjerker as the other movies based on Nicholas Sparks' novels. I liked the main storyline of this movie, and I'd really looked forward to see it, but basically the movie is just a really long end or a really long middle, can't really decide which one. But basically it never really got going and you kept waiting for the excitement to start kicking in.
It was a bit of a disappointment to be honest. It had a few gooey romantic parts that made your heart melt and it had a few parts that made you think but mainly those parts just ended up confusing you in the end anyway.
It felt like this movie missed out on what was really important with it and focused on something else instead, which is a shame. Not a movie to watch more than once. But might be enjoyed the first time at least.

Side Effects
Side Effects(2013)

I found Side Effects to be a really exciting movie. It made you think and it engaged you in a very interesting way. The acting was fantastic and the movie kept you hooked to the edge of your seat until the very end. It was a nicely put together psychological thriller that makes you want to find out what is happening, and you still won't fully understand once it's finished, which will make you want to know more and see it again. I enjoyed it.

Prozac Nation

I liked the storyline, and the fact that it's a true story makes it all the more heartbreaking. But it felt like the movie wasn't as serious as it should have been and I would have wanted to know more about the background and the symptoms and all the whys that you never really got answered. But other than that it was a sorrowful movie about an important subject.

The Host
The Host(2013)
½

It wasn't quite what I expected. It took a while for me to actually get into it, but once I'd gotten into it I fairly enjoyed it for its humour and wit and the excellent acting from Saoirse Ronan who never does disappoint!

Secretary
Secretary(2002)
½

Everyone is talking about this movie as if it's forbidden with a lot of taboos, I never saw it that way. I didn't even find it rather dirty or disgusting as everyone else seems to think it is. Instead I was waiting for the movie to begin which it never really did. It had a good storyline, but nothing really ever happened with it, which is a shame.

Ginger & Rosa

Ginger & Rosa is one of those movies where you think you've got it all under control, you think you know what this movie will be about, you think you know the secret behind it before you even start watching it. But you'll be wrong. If you've seen the trailer before the movie you will feel manipulated and as if someone's tricked you. But in a good way. This movie will take you on an unexpected journey. But that isn't everytjhing that's needed to make a good movie.
This is a movie set in the 1960s London and there's only American actors in it, which means that it was sometimes hard to understand who was supposed to be British and who was supposed to be American. If maybe they just did a rubbish attempt at a British accent or if they weren't supposed to be British.
The portrayal from Elle Fanning and Alice Englert was spectacular, they were amazing as Ginger and Rosa and they definitely put life into this movie.
There were also some puzzle pieces that were difficult to put together and this is one of those movies where you have to read between the lines and it takes a while to understand how it all fits together.
Other than that it was an okay coming of age story, it had a remarkable storyline but it should have been noticed a bit more throughout the movie and it shouldn't have given mixed signals.

Anna Karenina
½

Anna Karenina was a pretty slow movie and it felt a lot longer than it actually was. It did have great acting though and it was incredibly beautifully made, but it had a lack of chemistry which made the movie not as good as it could have been.
I liked the fact how they'd found such amazing British actors for this movie. Everyone's British except the Swedish Alicia Vikander who did an amazing British accent.
This isn't a movie that you would see more than once, and it probably isn't even a movie that you would see for the storyline. This movie is about the scenery and the imagery, it's about the magic behind the scenes and if you can appreciate it for what it is, then you might as well enjoy it. But since it has a lack of its chemistry it might take a while to fully understand what this movie is about.

Nearlyweds
Nearlyweds(2013)

Nearlyweds was actually a really comfortable and feel-good movie to watch. The characters were interesting and the storyline was rather plain but still quite enjoyable. This movie made you feel good and better about yourself despite the troubles that this movie includes. It was without a doubt an entertaining movie about marriage and life and the obstacles that can come of it. I enjoyed it and it pulled me in until the very end. It's a feel-good movie that won't disappoint!

Beautiful Creatures

Beautiful Creatures was one of those movies where I had a hard time figuring out if I liked it or not. It started off a bit slow, some things happened a bit too fast and some parts of the plot were difficult to comprehend. But at the same time I enjoyed it. It was very well made and it still somehow dragged you into the story. There were parts when you questioned what you thought about it and there were parts when it really engaged you. It was still an enjoyable magical movie but it just didn't hook you to the screen all the way through.

Red Riding Hood
½

This was an okay take on the fairytale. To be honest, I don't really know what I think of it. It's a movie that's okay when watching it but quite easily forgotten once it was finished. The best part of the movie was Julie Christie's character and she wasn't even in it that much. It just didn't have the suspense and the tension that you would have hoped for a movie like this. It just ended up being a mediocre movie that's not worth staying in your memory after the end credits.

Hotel for Dogs

I found Hotel for Dogs to have a pretty lame storyline and plot, but still it was somewhat entertaining. You don't have to love dogs to enjoy it, you can watch it for the adventure and still find it rather enjoyable. For me it was when you started reading between the lines that this movie started getting better. It wasn't the dog-story that interested me, it was the other one. I quite easily managed to sit through it, but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone else.

Buried
Buried(2010)

This whole movie is filmed in one place and the only actor in it is really Ryan Reynolds except the voices that you hear in the background. This made it difficult to get into the story at first and it took a while for you to really feel the claustrophobia. For me it took about an hour, and that might sound much since the movie is only one hour and thirty-nine minutes long. But the ending almost makes up for it. This movie ended up shocking you to the very core. But because of the one hour of this movie that was a strain to sit through I can't really reward it more than three stars.

This Is 40
This Is 40(2012)
½

This is 40 was an okay romantic comedy. It felt a bit too long for a genre like this and you quite easily lost interest after a while. I found this movie better than Knocked Up to be honest. It was a lighthearted comedy about life but it was quite easily forgotten once you'd finished watching it.

Mysterious Skin

Mysterious Skin was a very well acted movie and it feels like it must have been a difficult movie to make for some of the actors. It was very captivating and touching at the same time as it felt like there was something missing. I could feel that some of the plotlines in the movie were difficult to relate to and made you lose interest at times but otherwise it was a thought-provoking movie that most certainly deals with an important subject.

She Wants Me
She Wants Me(2012)

I don't really know what to think of this movie. The storyline was a bit too mediocre for my taste and it was badly directed. It was an okay entertaining bland comedy but it just didn't have enough storyline or plot to make this into a good movie.

Labor Pains
Labor Pains(2009)

This lighthearted comedy started off promising and ended up being an entertaining journey pretty much all the way through. I hadn't expected to enjoy this, but must admit that I actually did.
The acting wasn't that great but it still had a storyline that made you want to watch it until the end. A comedy that's worth your time but probably only once.

One for the Money
½

One for the Money was pretty dull to begin with but quite rapidly it turned into okay and that is how it stayed throughout most of the movie. It might have headed into the storyline a bit too fast which meant that you couldn't really catch up with what it was actually about.
There wasn't much excitement and the enthusiasm for who was behind everything and what was going to happen next wasn't really there, but somehow it managed to entertain you in some small way anyway. In other words, it was an okay average action comedy, but nothing more than that.

Brick
Brick(2006)

I'm very curious why everyone seems to like this movie so much, or is it just me who had such a hard time actually comprehending what it was about?
I thought it was a rather slow movie and quite a dire movie to watch to be honest. The only real highlight of it is Emilie De Ravin and she's hardly in it. It was difficult to understand the main storyline of it when watching and even if you've read the summary you got confused. With a storyline like the one it has, it could have been a lot better, but it just ended up being a disappointment and it made you almost fall asleep more than once when watching it.

Argo
Argo(2012)

I really didn't like this movie at all. I wanted to like it but I just couldn't understand it. By the end of it I started to realise that the storyline was actually quite gripping and heartfelt, and it's a shame that I couldn't understand what it was about when watching it. I wish I'd understood more but this movie mostly made me want to fall asleep.

Shrek Forever After

Not quite as bad as the third one, but it's definitely gone down the drain compared to the first and the second. I tend to not enjoy animated movies so I wasn't expecting much of this one. The fact is, the only animated movies I can remember enjoying is Shrek 1 and 2. This one was a bit too silly for my liking and they should really have stopped making them after second one.

My Summer of Love

My Summer of Love is a story about friendship and love, family and life. It takes up a very important subject but at the same time there is so much that the movie doesn't mention that it doesn't feel as important when watching it.
There were some things that were just plain difficult to put together. The age of the two girls, their chemistry, the transition from friendship to love. This could sometimes make the movie feel slightly unreal and you didn't really know what to think of it.
Overall it was a slow movie that you never really got into. It was a great storyline though with some shocking consequences, but it could have been a lot better.

Friends With Kids
½

Friends with Kids wasn't quite the way I'd imagined. I'd hoped for it to be more of an ensemble comedy and not just about these two people and their wacky life decision.
This was a movie that you could easily sit though without getting bored but at the same time there was this longing for something to actually happen but it never really did.
The storyline was slightly mediocre and it ended up making you feel rather empty. It was nothing that you haven't already seen before which is a shame. In other words, it was okay when watching it, but pretty much forgotten once it finished.

Knight & Day
Knight & Day(2010)

Knight and Day was an action movie with a lot of action but pretty much nothing other than that. You might think that action is the only real importance in an action movie, but there was a lack of so much more that the action just wasn't enough for a movie like this.
It had a lack of acting, a storyline or anything resembling any sort of excitement to be honest. This was mostly a strain sitting through and the storyline was rather lacklustre and mediocre and it never gave you anything to actually look forward to. In fact, it was quite dull despite the many car chases.

Killers
Killers(2010)

This was an entertaining action comedy. It had excitement, humour and romance which is pretty much all you really need.
It started off well and it had its hook thoughout it all. It definitely entertained more than I'd expected and it was without a doubt an enjoyable movie about life or death and secrets that can be kept within a marriage.

Playing for Keeps
½

Playing for Keeps has a storyline that could be thought-provoking and entertaining all the way through. Instead it ended up being tedious and inanimate. It had a lack of life and it never made you want to continue watching it..
It's a storyline that's been made so many times before that you need something special or unique to believe in this one, and that's something that this movie didn't have. The power to make me believe in it. Which is a result in it not being very good, at all.
All the things that were important for this movie, it had a lack of. Belief, chemistry and good acting. Instead it was just a dreary non-ending story that never had the courage to tell you anything that you didn't already know.

Beasts of the Southern Wild

The only reason to see this movie is Quvenzhané Wallis, she was absolutely remarkable to be so young and she is the one who carries the whole movie since pretty much the whole movie consists of her voice. But other than her it was an utter disappointment.
It had a lack of storyline and you never really got into it. By the movie's finish it was difficult to fully comprehend what it was even about. The acting by the little girl was without a doubt incredible, but the main movie was lacklustre and dull from the beginning until the very end. I was on the verge of falling asleep throughout it all.

Nights in Rodanthe

After having seen all the other movie adaptations from Nicholas Sparks this one ended up being a disappointment. This one wasn't a tearjerker in the way that all of his other movies have been.
This movie ended up being quite difficult to get into, it had a lack of chemistry and there were parts that were hard to fully comprehend. This ended up making you not feel anything by the movie's finish, and this is a movie that's supposed to make you feel. Which is a shame. It started getting better after a while, but it just wasn't good enough.

Blue Lagoon: The Awakening

Blue Lagoon: The Awakening is a sweet movie about love and survival, friendship and desire.
Even though there were parts that felt a tad bit unrealistic you could still appreciate it for what it was. It was sweet, it had a good soundtrack and it entertained you from the beginning until the end. Nothing more than that but it was still worthwhile when watching it.

Les Misérables

I have a hard time knowing what I actually thought of this one. The acting and the singing was absolutely remarkable, especially from Anne Hathaway and Isabelle Allen who played the younger Cosette.
I wasn't as captivated by it as everyone else seems to be, after a while you started getting a bit restless watching people sing in two and half hours. I'm impressed by how easy it was to understand the storyline even if people were just singing, but there were still some things that didn't quite get across.
Other than that it's a movie to watch once and appreciate for the incredible voices and the fantastic performances but that's pretty much all this movie is really about. It's about the beauty and the grief and that is why you should watch it. That is what it should be appreciated for. It was interesting watching a musical with hardly any talking and where they actually sing what they otherwise would have said. It was a fascinating and different story but it's not one that I will remember for long.

Friday the 13th
½

I don't really know what to say about this movie. It was an okay movie but nothing more. I thought I would like it a lot better than the original but it was just as okay as that one was.
The intro to this movie was a bit too long. You thought it plunged right into the story but it didn't.
It also makes plantations whenever it wants to scare you which results in not really scaring you at all.
I can't quite decide whether I like it or not. Whether I was disappointed or not. In the end it was just an okay movie that won't stay in your mind for very long.

The Ward
The Ward(2011)

Amber Heard has the tendency to be in really good horror movies and this was no exception.
This was frightening and creepy down to the very core. The answers you eventually got formed even more questions. You will sit at the edge of your seat and clench your hands tight when hoping that nothing scary will happen. And you will still jump when it does.
I like to think that horror movies don't scare me and that I don't get nightmares from them, and I usually don't. But I have a bad feeling that this one might give a nightmare or two. It made me jump more times than I'd like to admit.
I don't really know why this movie made a bigger impact on me than any other horror movie, since it's not that unique or mesmerizing to be honest, but it's probably the movie that's made my heart beat the fastest since 2:37.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
½

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel was like pressing the snooze button. This movie contains some of the most hilarious and spectacular british actors there are, so it's a real shame that it had to be such a disappointment.
There were some quotations in this movie that were generally really funny, but somehow they just weren't funny when played out on screen.
It was incredibly slow and it never really got anywhere. Overall it was a strain sitting through it and it was nothing other than a true waste of your time.

Chasing Amy
Chasing Amy(1997)
½

I liked the storyline of this movie and it does have a good standing point that it very well represents. But it was very difficult getting into it and it never really hooked you the way that you'd hoped for.
The acting and the hoarse voice from Joey Lauren Adams was an irritating mantra throughout the whole film, especially in the "argument" scenes when the acting could have been without a doubt magnificent but was destroyed because of her.
The chemistry wasn't really there the way that it should have been. It needed to be there to make me believe how someone would fall in love with someone so quickly, but it wasn't.
The movie was nonetheless poetic with an interesting storyline but it never made you want to continue watching it. I mean, I wanted to know what would happen next, but deep down it was a bit of a strain sitting through although it gradually got better towards the end.

What to Expect When You're Expecting
½

This was a movie that started off really well, being genuinely funny and entertaining. Then it sort of lost its hook by the middle of it but gradually got better towards the end. This kind of made the movie incomplete since it just started getting better. Because once it started being good again you wanted more and you wanted to know what happened next and there were some questions that needed to be answered but weren't. Other than that it was an okay and enjoyable romantic comedy about the upsides and downsides of being pregnant and giving birth.

Little Birds
Little Birds(2012)
½

I loved the acting and the storyline but still somehow it was a bit too slow and a bit too difficult to get into. It kept going but never quite reaching anywhere. Juno Temple did a great American accent and Kay Panabaker was remarkable in her role as the best friend.
This was a riveting storyline about searching your dreams and giving up everything around you for a guy. It's a story about life and loss, love and letting go. It's a story with a very thought-provoking life lesson, but sadly it was a strain to sit through since it never really got into the story the way that I'd hoped for.

So Undercover

This was even worse than I'd expected. It took ages to get into it and even then it wasn't that good. Despite the bad acting I'd hoped for something more. It turned out okay by the middle of it, but it was never more than okay.

Django Unchained

I have never been a fan of movies directed by Quentin Tarantino and this wasn't really an exception, but this was one of his better ones nonetheless. Because of it being almost three hours long there were parts when it just kept going but not actually getting anywhere but it gradually got better towards the end.
For me, all this movie really had going for it was the amazing soundtrack, otherwise it wasn't really anything that spoke to me. Just like Quentin Tarantino's other movies.

The Impossible
½

I am completely and utterly speechless after having seen this movie. I who can't cry to movies was almost brought to tears. This movie was gripping and heartwrenching in every way possible. The movie was dragged into the main storyline very quickly and everything began from the very beginning. At first it was hard to understand how this storyline could be one hour and fifty minutes on screen. But the movie continued smoothly and it was an impeccable journey. The performances from Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor, Tom Holland, Samuel Joslin and Oaklee Pendergast were absolutey remarkable. They made this movie into a masterpiece and I have goosebumps from the fantastic acting and the incredible showing of how much a parent can love a child. I'm impressed.

Elsewhere
Elsewhere(2009)
½

Elsewhere was a very tense and gripping thriller. It made me jump a few times whilst it kept me at the edge of my seat. The movie was somewhat hazy and vague and it felt like there were some questions that weren't really answered. But other than that it was intense, exciting and it kept you wondering until the very end. And even though you might find out the answers, the questions and the confusion still lies with you afterwards.

50/50
50/50(2011)

50/50 was a nicely put together comedy. It had its laugh out loud moments and it most certainly has an all-star cast in the comedy genre but there were times when the movie kept going without actually getting anywhere which is a shame. I wished that the pure hilarity of it that was shown a few times would have been held throughout the whole movie. But sometimes the funniness of the story just lost its course. But I still have to praise the director who managed to make something funny out of something serious. That is what kept this movie going.

ParaNorman
ParaNorman(2012)
½

I don't really know what to say about this. Animated movies isn't really a genre that generally speaks to me. And I can'say that this was a movie for me. It was somewhat enjoyable whilst watching but sadly it was forgotten as soon as it was finished.

Pitch Perfect

When I first saw the front cover and the title of the movie I didn't think it would be my type of movie at all. But when I then saw the trailer I realised I had to change my mind because it seemed really good, and I was right.
Pitch Perfect was a lot better than I ever could have imagined. It was genuinely funny and it had a certain force of attraction which had you at the edge of your seat until the very end. This was pure entertainment and definitely worth more than one watch!

Silver Linings Playbook

Silver Linings Playbook wasn't quite the way I'd expected. I don't really know which expectations I'd had at first but somehow there was still something missing. There was an emotion that should have been there but wasn't. And I couldn't decide if Jennifer Lawrence was worthy of her golden globe or not, but nontheless she is definitely the reason to watch this movie. The director could have handled the storyline a bit better and made it more emotional but other than that it was still an okay comedy that features a storyline within the drama genre.

The Words
The Words(2012)
½

The story within a story within a story complicated The Words quite a bit. It made that you had a hard time comprehending what was actually happening and what the movie was fully about. The movie's main storyline was also revealed a bit too late which made you pretty confused during most of the movie. It was also a bit difficult to put all the puzzle pieces together when finished watching, this destroyed the movie somewhat. It was rather enjoyable and it wasn't a strain to sit through it but I still had a hard time knowing what I thought of it by the end. I was left with a slight emptiness.

For a Good Time, Call...

For a Good Time, Call... had everything that you'd want in a comedy. It was tremendously funny from the beginning until the very end, it had genuine characters and it had a twisted but oddly hilarious storyline. I enjoyed this movie a lot more than I ever could have imagined. Definitely worth a watch!

Celeste and Jesse Forever
½

Um... I don't really know what to think of this movie. It was a rather odd but sweet idea. It shows that things don't always go according to plan and sometimes you might think that you know what you want but in reality it might not be what you want at all. It also shows you that everyone can't live from your theory and know exactly what it is you're thinking. But at the same time it was such a complicated relationship and it was a bit hard to fully comprehend it. Other than that it was an entertaining comedy but it was still somewhat easily forgotten.

The Reeds
The Reeds(2010)

The Reeds was quite difficult to fully comprehend. In most good horror movies you will from the very beginning probably sit at the edge of your seat and wonder how the horror started or who's responsible for it. But it wasn't really like that in this one. You might have sat at the edge of your seat a few times but overall it was quite confusing. Because it felt like there wasn't a reason for why it was all happening. Therefore you didn't really know what to think when watching it. It was generally a quite exciting movie and it did include some engrossing tension but it still left you with a little bit of emptiness and confusion by the end of it.

Himlen är oskyldigt blå (Behind Blue Skies)

This was an engaging and rather entertaining comedy. Some things took a while to fully undersrand but overall it was an engrossing and a heartfelt comedy that's certainly worth a watch.

Life of Pi
Life of Pi(2012)
½

Remarkable filmmaking and absolutely wonderfully directed. That's pretty much what this movie has going for it. Some parts could get a bit dull and sometimes it felt like it wasn't really getting anywhere. But the impressive imagery really made this movie into a worthwhile piece of art.

Zombieland
Zombieland(2009)
½

I actually enjoyed this movie a lot more than I expected. It was funny and overall really enjoyable. I really enjoyed it from the beginning until the very end. Despite it's name I hadn't expected it as zombie-ish as it ended up being. But I was pleasantly surprised and it's definitely worth a watch.

Fly Away Home

What a beautiful family drama with a young Anna Paquin in a lead role. I didn't realise that it was based on a true story until the very end, but that just made the story even more spectacular than it already was.
Fly Away Home was a wonderful movie about grief and love in the most remarkable way possible. It showed you a profound love between a daughter and her father and it made you realise how important that love really is. Terrific.

The Hole
The Hole(2001)
½

The Hole was quite difficult getting into and it took a while until it really started engaging you. At first itwas confusing and you didn't really know what was happening for real or if it was just an imagination. But by the end it really got you thinking and you had to start rewinding the rest of the movie to really believe it. The Hole was an horrific movie with a great storyline. It really has you wondering and questioning life. By the end it will have you shocked. It took a while to actually get there, but it did take you there in the end. And it's worth the wait.

Source Code
Source Code(2011)

Source Code actually ended up being a big disappointment. There was too much repeating in it for it to be enjoyable. It felt like it wasn't really getting anywhere and after a while you had to start question what the movie was really about. You would have wanted to know which connection everyone had with each other but that question was never really answered throughout the movie. Basically it was the same scene shown in ten different ways from the beginning until the very end, and sadly the director didn't manage to make it interesting despite it repeating itself. A shame.

Now Is Good
Now Is Good(2012)
½

I absolutely loved the book, but I'm not really sure what to make of the movie. It was a good movie, but I just don't know whether to be disappointed or enjoy it for what it is. Dakota Fanning is well deserved of some praise for her believable british accent and Jeremy Irvine, Olivia Williams and Paddy Considine were amazing in their roles as well. But there's a lot of emotions that got lost on the way which is a shame. This is a story about strength and belief, about living every day as if it were your last and about hiding the hurt that you're really feeling. But none of these emotions were really captured.
This is a story about feeling that you haven't done much in life and you want to experience it all before it's too late. I know that you shouldn't compare the book and movie too much, that you should see the movie for what it is, but I feel that the emotions should have been there. To be honest, I don't remember enough of the book to be disappointed about the small things or to say that a certain actor isn't suitable for the role. But I remember the emotions put into it.
Even in the summary it's mentioned about Tessa's desire to lose her virginity, but somehow that got lost along the way as well.
Now is Good was a good movie, even though they should have kept the original title. It was incredibly heartbreaking towards the end and Paddy Considine definitely made you feel something completely out of the ordinary. I enjoyed it, despite my disappointing comments, but I think I would have enjoyed it even more if I hadn't read the book.

Sleeping Beauty
½

Sleeping Beauty is one of those movies where I don't really know what to think of it once it's ended. It was rather odd and difficult to comprehend. It was quite hard putting the puzzle pieces of this movie back together and I still don't quite know what to think of it. It was great acting from Emily Browning, but that's really all this movie has going for it.

Last Night
Last Night(2011)
½

Last Night was a rather slow movie. There was never really that much happening in it, and there wasn't really anything that held you to the screen. There was good dialogue in it and a good storyline but it had a great lack of chemistry which is a disappointment for a movie like this. This made it really difficult to watch since this is one of those movies where you want to pick a team. But you couldn't, because of the chemistry that wasn't even there. The movie's strongest scene is definitely the end. Finally something thought-provoking that makes you think and wonder what will happen next.

The Graduate
The Graduate(1967)
½

This is actually the movie that made me a movie fanatic in the first place, but I was still surprised by how much I enjoyed it watching it now, ten years later. I was slightly disappointed by the lack of plot in the movie and the speed of how things went. But it was still a well acted movie that will stay in your heart for a very long time.

When the Lights Went Out

When the Lights Went Out was an unusual unpredictable horror movie and the interesting thing is that it's actually based on a true story. I liked the fact that the horror started early on in the movie and that it included the team effort that horror movies rarely have. I liked the scenery and it was very well acted. Overall it was a different, but a good horror movie.

The Family Stone
½

This movie was quite difficult getting into but it gradually got better towards the end. It was an okay sweet christmas movie, not the movie but it still holds the theme well.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

This turned out to be a good movie. It was perhaps a bit too long and few things that I couldn't quite comprehend when watching, but other than that it was a journey worth remembering and it was an enjoyable one to watch.

Jack Frost
Jack Frost(1998)
½

A very interesting and original christmas movie. It shows you that everyone deserves a second chance. Even though it was rather odd you didn't notice it when watching. Instead it was quite an entertainment and it actually hooked you to the screen until the very end. A nicely sweet christmas movie to watch.

Dead Alive
Dead Alive(1993)

An incredibly odd and gross zombie movie. It's a movie where you don't quite know how to feel about it by the end. It just leaves you wondering. It doesn't really have a storyline and a plot the way that you'd hope. It managed to keep you awake, but nothing more than that.

Battle Royale

I didn't really enjoy this movie. It was complicated to understand what was happening and I kept forgetting to read the subtitles that I didn't really comprehend what was being said. I didn't really have any expectations when starting to watch it, but it still wasn't really my cup of tea.

Bachelorette
Bachelorette(2012)

Bachelorette was a movie that started off well but eventually ended up being a bit too much. In the end you were mainly waiting for the finish and you didn't quite know what it was you were watching anymore. It was a half entertaining movie about marriage and life, friends and love. It's about regrets and all the things you would do for the ones you love. This is an edgy black comedy that will make you question life in an eerie sort of way!

House at the End of the Street
½

House At the End of the Street was a really interesting thriller/horror movie. It started with the horrific of it all, but at the same time it didn't. It through you in quite quickly but still not. But it still had you engaged and by the end it really had you engrossed in what was happening. Most definitely thought-provoking and well-made, the ending scene witll most certainly make you take deep breaths before you can start living again!

My Girlfriend's Boyfriend

My Girlfriend's Boyfriend was a really interesting movie. Throughout the movie you start to choose a side and you start hoping that Jesse will choose the same as you but then the ending comes. The ending is smart and sassy and has you right on the edge of your seat. It makes you think back. It has had you fooled but at the same time it really makes you think. It was definitely smart made which has you thinking long after the movie's end.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Interesting final instalment of this worldwide saga. Although a part of me felt quite disappointed. It felt like it didn't really follow the book in a way that it could have been done which is a shame. And a lot of it was made quite lame on screen. It was an okay movie, with impressive effects, but I was still left slightly empty afterwards.

Waiting for Forever
½

Waiting for Forever is a complicated story showing the different perspectives of what friendship and love really is. It was an interesting and an amusing idea but somehow it still didn't speak to me.
It was difficult to get into it and throughout the whole movie, all you were really doing was waiting 'til the end.
The acting was lousy and the script wasn't a lot to have. It could have been better but in the end it was just a movie struggling to get somewhere but never quite reaching the finish line. It was a movie that tried too hard but ended up leaving you with nothing but emptiness. A true disappointment!

Eat Sleep Die

It started off really good but eventually it kind of got stuck. The movie didn't really get anywhere and you couldn't really understand where it was taking you. This made you constantly wait for it to be over which is a shame really. It contained some spectacular acting but there was just a certain lack of a good manuscript which made the movie experience not as good as it could have been,

Your Sister's Sister

Your Sister's Sister was quite difficult getting into but it rounded up neatly. It was great acting and towards the end it became really powerful and emotional but it took a bit too long to actually get there. Not much happened in the movie and for a movie with not much happening, Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt and Mark Duplass certainly carried it well. But there was still a certain edge in it that was missing for it to be fully appreciated.

L!fe Happens
L!fe Happens(2012)
½

L!fe Happens was an entertaining comedy about motherhood, friendships, love and most of all life. Krysten Ritter portrayed her role wondrously and it was great to watch her for once actually carry the movie and she managed amazingly well. Kate Bosworth and Rachel Bilson were great in their roles as well. The movie definitely lived up to its expectations. It hooked you from the beginning until the very end and it always had a certain attraction that made you want to continue watching it. Most certainly an enjoyable and entertaining comedy that will make you smile by the end of it!

Main Street
Main Street(2011)

A great cast in an absolutely atrocious movie. This movie had no significance whatsoever. It was difficult getting into it, the fact is that you never actually got into it throughout the whole movie. It was a strain sitting through it, seeing as you kept waiting for a punchline or an excitement that never came. The movie didn't have a storyline that made you feel anything. From the beginning until the end you were just waiting for the end credits to arrive and by the end of it all it really left you with was emptiness.

Ted
Ted(2012)

Not having any expectations whatsoever when I started watching this movie I ended up really enjoying it. It had something extra. It was unique and funny and a real entertainment. I sat on the edge of my seat until the very end and couldn't stop laughing. Definitely worth a watch!

Bride and Prejudice
½

Bride & Prejudice was a disappointment. It didn't really contribute to anything when watching it. There was no chemistry between the lead characters and nothing really happened. It's a shame, but it ended up just leaving you empty after the end credits had finished rolling.

Friends With Money

This was a really bad romantic drama-comedy, it didn't have a storyline with any significance whatsoever and you never really got into the movie when watching it. You kept waiting for something to happen but it never came and the movie ended up asking so many questions that it never even had the opportunity of answering. In other words, it was a big disappointment!

28 Weeks Later...
½

I was surprised by how much I ended up enjoying this movie. With gore from the very beginning it's impossible to look away. This movie kept me hooked from the first scene until the end credits started rolling. It was exceptionally gripping and it compelled me throughout the whole movie. Impossible to take your eyes off it and it felt like it was your life being played on screen. Definitely worth a watch!

Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding

I had high hopes before watching this movie. The trailer made me believe that it was going to be funny and entertaining and a real feel-good movie that will make you appreciate yourself afterwards. This ended up being something completely different.
The beginning was very slow and it was hard to get into it. It felt like the movie's storyline got lost somewhere along the lines. It felt like it never really got you anywhere which made the movie a strain to watch.
It never really had a clear beginning, middle and end which means that it didn't really have anything dramaturgical in it that made you want to continue watching it. It is a shame really, the movie could have been a lot better. But sadly all the emotions that was tied into the storyline for some reason missed out on being a part of the movie. And that is mainly the reason for it ending up being so plain and tame when it could have included a lot more depth and sentimentality.

Fight Club
Fight Club(1999)
½

Fight Club was quite a complicated movie and I had a quite hard time actually comprehending it. It was hard to relate and to understand the full context of the story. This resulted in me not really feeling anything when watching it. By the end of the movie I wasn't really sure of what I'd actually been watching. It was an okay movie and it managed to keep you rather entertained despite you not understanding what was happening on screen. But the comprehension of the plot still needs to be there to make it a good movie, and sadly it wasn't.

The Five-Year Engagement

The Five-Year Engagement was actually a really entertaining comedy about putting your life on hold. It was funny and witty in just about the right places and it definitely kept you entertained from the beginning until the very end.

And Soon the Darkness

And Soon the Darkness was a good title and plot but clearly a disappointment. It was way too slow in the beginning, it took forty minutes until anything really happened and then it went way to fast once it had actually started.
There were a lot of things that were quite hard to comprehend and it was difficult to understand how all the sub plots connected with each other. Basically the movie was way too short considering that it took forty minutes for anything to get the least bit frightening. And it's supposed to be a thriller.

Loving Leah
Loving Leah(2009)
½

Loving Leah was quite a different story. It's about something that probably not many have gone through and can relate to but still it taught you about a whole new culture. It put you in someone else's shoes in quite an interesting way. This was a sweet movie about finding love in the most unexpected situations and trying to cope with the consequences it might bring.

Remember the Daze
½

The catchy title and the cover of this movie definitely makes you believe that this is going to be a good one, but it ended up being a disappointment. It had some really great imagery and a thought-provoking soundtrack. But the rest of it just didn't have the energy to make you think.
It felt like the only thing that had any real significance was the music playing when the end credits were rolling. That song had all the depths and emotions when the movie didn't really manage to have any of it.
This is a story about being a teenager and what many teenagers might go through. Drugs, love, not having the courage of letting go, betrayal, forgiveness, heartbreak, secrecy, homosexuality. All these things carry such strong emotions but still it didn't come out as much when watching it.
It just felt like nothing really happened despite all the important lessons that the movie tried to teach you. It never really taught you anything that had any meaning. It was a shame that it never really got anywhere and that the only thing it will really leave you with is emptiness. The best part of the movie was the end credits and that's the only part that will actually make you feel something.

From Prada to Nada
½

This was quite a sweet movie that tells you that money can't buy love and that the exterior isn't quite as important as what's inside of you. It was cute and it taught you some important lessons. The ending was somewhat cheesy and it didn't feel quite complete but other than that it was an okay movie.

We Bought a Zoo

I was pleasantly surprised with We Bought a Zoo. It was an entertaining movie and quite a unique and fascinating idea. It had incredible chemistry and genuine acting all the way through and it taught you the hardships of raising children alone and what to do when it comes to saving your family. It most certainly hooked you to the screen and had you engaged from the beginning until the very end.

Monte Carlo
Monte Carlo(2011)
½

This was a somewhat girly/half-entertaining chickflick. It was okay to watch on an aeroplane, it kept you entertained during the flight, but it still left you feeling quite empty once it had ended. It had a good soundtrack which definitely lifted up the movie and made it a little better. Otherwise it was an okay watch, but nothing more than that.

Total Recall
Total Recall(2012)

Total Recall was an action-filled complex movie that managed to throw you some surprises. It might not have engaged you as much as you'd wanted it to but I liked the fact that it was still somewhat unpredictable. Although I was a bit disappointed that I wasn't sitting at the edge of my seat of excitement like I normally would with a movie like this. Maybe it was a bit too diffictult to understand for me. Even if I like movies that make you think, this one just didn't come up to the level of thoughts and a certain comprehension in the way that I would have expected.

Tamara Drewe
Tamara Drewe(2010)

The storyline of the movie has depth and emotion, but these two important qualities never even grasped you when watching it. This just made you feel empty and hollow by the time the end credits started rolling. Seeing as you never really got into the movie and nothing that significant happened it's not really worth a watch.

I Don't Know How She Does It
½

This was a movie that gradually got better throughout all of it until the very end. At first it felt like it didn't really have a structured plot and that it wasn't really about anything significant. It was hard to quite comprehend the storyline and why anyone would even want to watch a movie that doesn't really tell you anything. But as it gradually got better you started to see some of the importance and emotions in making the story. It started to mean something even if it took a while to actually get there.
The acting was still quite lousy and even if you manage to watch it until the end it still ends up leaving you quite empty afterwards.

Cinderella Pact
½

This was actually a really entertaining movie about reaching your goals and believing in an improvement. It's about being able to realise who you really are and about falling in love.
It was cute and had a storyline that many people can relate to. To be honest I was happily surprised. This was a highly enjoyable comedy about never giving up and meeting the one person who sees right through your exterior.

A Cinderella Story: Once Upon A Song

Quite an interesting take on the cinderella story. If it wasn't for the title you'd probably not even realise that it's gotten inspiration from the classic disney saga. It has its similarities but it was still interesting how they'd changed quite a lot of the story and I enjoyed it.
It somewhat felt like the movie didn't have a structured plot with the fact that it never really ended but it was still quite entertaining and it most certainly had a great soundtrack and it definitely shared a few laughs!

Her Best Move
½

Her Best Move is one of those football/crush movies that we've seen so many times before. It's cute and a tad entertaining when you don't have much else to do.
Just a shame that this movie wasn't that good that you actually saw it for the football scenes, instead you only watched it for the scenes with Drew Tyler Bell. It's just sad he wasn't in it enough to make it worh it.

Beauty & the Briefcase
½

I almost hate to admit that I actually enjoyed this movie. This is the first Hilary Duff movie, that I've seen at least, where she plays a mature adult and it was interesting to watch.
This was a highly entertaining comedy. Even if it's a storyline that we've seen a thousand times before, it still kept you hooked until the end. We've all seen the storyline about fashion and undercover journalism but then eventually falling in love. But when it comes to how the storyline usually ends up this movie was actually unpredictable in its predictability, and I like that fact. Even though you throughout the movie pretty much know what's going to happen it can still throw you some surprises. It might have been somewhat cheesy and a bit of a cliché, but it was still without a doubt an enjoyable entertainment.

Restless
Restless(2011)
½

Restless is a story about living on the outside and not really fitting in but then finding the one who fits you perfectly. The one who has the missing jigsaw puzzle piece that might just make everything complete.
This was quite a complex story that you probably have to see more times to fully comprehend it, the only shame is that it wasn't that good that you'd actually want to see it more than once.
It was exceedingly slow and you never really got into it when watching. It wasn't as deep and emotional as you'd hoped when hearing about it. This is a movie with so much depth and sensation but still you couldn't quite fathom the significance of it. All the empathy that was put into the storyline didn't quite reach me as the spectator seeing as it wasn't acted out on screen as I'd wished it would.

Prayers for Bobby
½

Prayers for Bobby is a story about denial and homosexuality, about not being able to accept someone. But at the same time it's about the realisation of who the person really is underneath and that you shouldn't judge them by some law that you've set up for yourself.
This is, and I'm completely honest here, the first movie that has actually made me cry. It's a shame that it was a bit hard to get into it from the beginning and at first you lost focus of what was happening quite quickly but that was until the emotions started to kick in. When the movie eventually finished I had to grasp what I'd just seen and I could hardly move.
Sigourney Weaver was impeccable as the mother. In the beginning all you could think about was what a lousy mother she made and you just wanted to thump her and make her realise what she's really missing. But at the end you started sympathising with her and feeling compassion for her. All of a sudden she wasn't as bad. All of sudden she'd gained a heart. That shows some truly genuine acting.
This movie will show you the transition in this family's life and the consequences it brings when you don't reach the finish line sooner.The last half an hour of the movie was exceedingly heartbreaking and gripping in every way possible. That half an hour most certainly makes up for the rest of the entire movie.

Cyberbully
Cyberbully(2011)

Cyberbully is a story that takes cyrbullying to a whole new level. This movie takes up subjects such as alienation and harrassment. It shows you how much words can really hurt and how hard it can be sticking up for someone when it can end up hurting not just your friend but yourself. This was a movie that took up an important issue but it also shows how difficult it can be to prevent something from happening when you can hide behind it. Emily Osment and Kay Panabaker played their roles wondrously in this heartbreaking movie about friendship and most of all bullying. Together they made this movie into something that everyone should watch and definitely learn from!

Janie Jones
Janie Jones(2011)

Janie Jones is a story about abandonment and alienation. The storyline was incredible and mesmerizing, but sadly the movie wasn't quite as good. Abigail Breslin was fantastic, with her musical talent and her wonderful acting skills she most certainly blew me away. The movie was still a bit slow and hard to get into but otherwise it was an important movie with a great soundtrack. It shows what it takes to realise who you really are and what you've been missing all your life without you even knowing it.

Moneyball
Moneyball(2011)

This movie really wasn't that good. The only thing it really has going for it is overrated good actors. Nothing really happened and it was hard following what the actual storyline really was. It was a bit too slow which caused you losing focus quite quickly. Kerris Dorsey is really the only one you should watch this movie for. The rest felt a bit fake, it felt like they put Brad Pitt in it just to make it better, sadly it didn't work this time.

The Roommate
The Roommate(2011)

I actually really enjoyed this movie. It was one of those movies that made you frightened before it even got scary. One of those movies where it felt like bugs were crawling inside your skin before anything had really happened. Because you were worried that it would get too horrific in the end. This was a suspenseful movie which kept you hooked until the end credits started rolling. Definitely worth watching!

Spider-Man
Spider-Man(2002)

I must say that this movie wasn't really that good. Seeing as the new Spider-Man-movie was a lot better this movie clearly ended up being a big disappointment. The new one is so much better in so many ways, and this one just doesn't reach up to those standards. But maybe if I'd seen this one before the new one my point of view would have been different. Sadly it was a strain sitting through it.

The Amazing Spider-Man

I really enjoyed this movie. It was exciting, fun and it really kept you hooked to the screen. Andrew Garfield was impressive as Peter Parker and Emma Stone made a really good Gwen Stacy. It was definitely beyond my expectations, this is without a doubt a full-on entertainment that's most certainly worth watching!

Friday the 13th

To be honest, I didn't quite see the point of this movie. It wasn't scary as it was supposed to be and everything happened so fast that you didn't really have time to be really frightened. It felt like the main storyline was a bit hazy around the edges and quite hard to comprehend. Having read the summary I know what the movie is about, but the main plot was hardly even in the movie which made it all a bit complex and difficult and quite hard to follow.

The Ruins
The Ruins(2008)

This was actually a really good thriller/horror movie. It was filled with suspense and excitement and it kept you hooked until the very end. I sat on the edge of my seat throughout the whole movie wanting to know what would happen next. Definitely worth watching!

Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy
½

This was a good movie and it was entertaining, but the suspense and excitement wasn't really there the way that I'd hoped. It was still entertaining and it did keep you hooked until the end even if you didn't feel the suspension of finding out who was guilty and what would happen next.

The Lost Boys

The Lost Boys was an incredibly weird movie that was quite hard to comprehend. It had no real significance whatsoever and throughout the whole movie you were wondering what was really going on. Incredibly strange, but still fascinating in a way. Not at all scary though, seeing as it's supposed to be a horror movie.

Martha Marcy May Marlene
½

Martha Marcy May Marlene is a movie that takes up such an important issue but still you don't quite understand it when watching because of the way the movie's made. It may have been quite psychological, but it was hardly a thriller. All the way through the movie I was wondering what on earth I was watching and I had to start thinking about what the movie was actually about when watching it. It was quite screwed-up and heartbreaking, but still somewhat interesting at the same time.

The Watcher
The Watcher(2000)
½

This movie wasn't that good. It felt like nothing was really happening. It started getting better towards the end, but by then you'd already given up hope of the movie being any good which destroyed the ending's excitement.

Like Crazy
Like Crazy(2011)
½

Like Crazy was a bit complicated and you probably have to watch it quite a few times to fully understand it. It contained a bit too many pauses where the one watching it has to fill in the blanks, for my liking. Felicity Jones was incredible, it was a unique and different story, but still it wasn't even half as good as you'd expected after watching the trailer which is a shame.

LOL
LOL(2012)

The only thing this movie really has going for it is good-looking guys. It had a cute storyline, although the not-so-great acting destroyed it, like it often does. It was entertaining when you anyway don't have much to do, and it could be a good laugh. But it still wasn't as good as I'd hoped for it to be.

Snow White and the Huntsman
½

This was honestly a good movie, an interesting adaptation. Some parts that were a bit hard to comprehend but it still kept you hooked until the very end!

Hereafter
Hereafter(2010)

I'm quite disappointed with this movie to be honest. It felt like it didn't really have any significance. Nothing really happened and all the way through you were waiting for something exciting that would keep you hooked but it never really came. I'd expected a lot better, shame that it ended up being a disappointment.

Pulp Fiction
Pulp Fiction(1994)
½

I don't really see what the hype is about when it comes to this movie. It wasn't awful but it wasn't that good either. When I'd finished watching it I just couldn't sum up what I'd just been watching. I couldn't say what it was actually about seeing as it hardly even has a storyline. So, for me it's not really worth a watch but everyone else seems to love it, so maybe you should watch it...

The Box
The Box(2009)

The Box wasn't at all as good as I'd expected. It wasn't at all exciting, instead I found myself wanting it to end. The storyline didn't feel that logic and it felt like it never really got anywhere. Overall it was a disappointment.

The Ghost Writer
½

The Ghost Writer was nothing other than disappointment. The only thing you need to know about this movie is that you'll need eye speculums to keep you awake, and it might not even work then.

21 Jump Street

I can't remember the last time I laughed this much. This must be the best comedy of the year. Maybe even this decade. It had enough humour to keep you entertained for a year and it kept you hooked until the very end. Definitely worth a watch more than once!

The Woman in Black

Woman in Black was a huge disappointment, a shame really. This is supposed to be a horror movie, but all the way through the movie I was waiting to be frightened but I never was. The only good thing with the movie was the ending. It was unpredictable which I like. Otherwise it was a bit too slow, nothing really happened, hence the waiting for the horror that was never really there. I had expected a lot more from this movie and it's sad that I left the cinema with nothing other than disappointment.

Step Up
Step Up(2006)
½

This was actually a good movie. It was entertaining, it had humour, romance, a good soundtrack and excitement. Definitely worth a watch!

Marvel's The Avengers

It was an okay movie. It was interesting and it kept you entertained. Still, it's not a movie that will be remembered. Maybe that's why you have to see it so many times. To actually keep it in your memory. Seeing as so many people have seen it over and over again, but for me, it's not a movie that I would watch more than once. Although I enjoyed it the first time.

The Lucky One

I really liked the storyline and I had looked forward to watching the movie. Sadly it wasn't as good as I'd expected for it to be. The storyline was great, but it felt like the acting and manuscript destroyed it somehow.

The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games was a lot better than I'd expected. Great acting, funny, exciting. Even though you deep down wonder what screwed-up world would come up with such a game it still pulls you in. This movie will tug at your heartstrings and it will hold on to you until the very end.

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

This is cleary the worst comedy of the year, probably the worst comedy since comedies were even invented. The trailer made you believe that it would be romantic and comedic. Sadly it didn't contain any romance or any slightly humourous scenes whatsoever. Definitely not worth anyone's time.

The Vow
The Vow(2012)

This movie was a disappointment to be honest. It felt like nothing really happened and I didn't feel as much sympathy for the characters as I'd hoped. Instead the movie ended up making me feel empty. Which is a shame seeing as the trailer gave hope of a really good movie. Sad it wasn't even that good. It was more like a one way ticket and no going back.

The Matrix
The Matrix(1999)
½

The Matrix was a lot better than I expected. It was action-packed with a lot of excitement. It was tense and hooked you to the screen throughout the whole movie. It was also very entertaining and will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end!

Drive
Drive(2011)

Drive wasn't at all as I'd expected. I'd expected a drama with a lot of tension and heartbreak, but this was so much more than that. This was a suckerpunch to your stomach. It was quite hard to get into the movie and it never quite made you want to continue watching it, but it's still good for what it is. Ryan Gosling was great as Driver and Carey Mulligan was incredible as Irene. They really made this movie a lot better than what it would have been without them. An intense movie, but still worth a watch!

Hotel Rwanda
Hotel Rwanda(2004)
½

A touching story about always putting your family first. It's a touching and gripping movie, but it's also one of those movies where you quite enjoy it whilst watching it, but that you completely forget once you've seen it. Sadly it's easily forgotten despite the very tragic storyline of it. But it will definitely engage you whilst watching it and it might even tug at some heartstrings!

Contagion
Contagion(2011)

Contagion was a bit of a disappointment to be honest. It had a lack of the excitement that I'd been hoping for. I liked the fact that there wasn't a main character and that the star-studded cast weren't such a big deal in the movie but they could still have made the movie more exciting and action-packed. They could have made it more heartbreaking and emotional. Some parts of the movie were quite complex and hard to comprehend. They should have made it a bit easier but also made it more engaging. But otherwise it was okay, definitely worth watching for the unique storyline and the terrific acting!

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
½

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, the title that is forvever forgotten but the movie that will be remembered forever. This movie almost moved me to tears. It has a heartbreaking storyline that affects you emotionally. It's a story about grief and love, searching and the key to never giving up. This is a truly amazing story about the bond between a father and a son and what to do when that bond breaks. It will make you cry and make you cherish every moment you have left of your life...

This Means War

After having been quite disappointed with Reese Witherspoon's movies lately, wondering if she's even that good at acting anymore, I'm glad that this one proved me wrong. This one contains everything that you want a movie to have. Action, excitement, romance, humour, spot-on punchlines, good-looking guys and of course great acting. This movie will make you laugh, but it will also make you sit on the edge of your seat until the very end. Definitely worth a watch!

Cry-Baby
Cry-Baby(1990)
½

This is probably the oddest and weirdest movie that I've seen in a long time but still, the oddness of it all just makes it funny. It was quite entertaining, it's not really a movie that you take seriously and it's a very different role for Johnny Depp. Cry-Baby is goofy and slightly odd, it's a combination between comedy, drama and musical which is quite an odd combination and in this case it ends up being a mixture between a laugh and an honest flopp. Even though it has some dramatic emotions, this movie can only really be a laugh because of the circumstances. It's still entertaining though and it will most certainly humour you on a bad day.

Carnage
Carnage(2011)
½

This was an interesting and unique black comedy. It was different with an odd but slightly intriguing storyline. It's definitely worth a watch. It's funny, slightly weird but still surprisingly entertaining. It engages you and gives you your own mental role in the movie. Throughout it you just wish it was reality so you can put the parents straight and so you can figure it out together. Definitely an odd but gripping movie about parenthood and education, stubbornness and never giving up. A fun and heartbreaking comedy that spirals out of control in a good way.

The Descendants

It wasn't quite as good as I'd expected. It felt like nothing really happened throughout the movie and I'd hoped for some flashbacks or some explanations or some excitement at least that drives the movie forwards. But there was nothing. Nothing really happened. George Clooney was undeserving of the academy award nomination seeing as he's not much of an actor. This movie could have been better, but sadly it wasn't.

My Week with Marilyn
½

My Week with Marilyn is an interesting movie that teaches you about the life of Marilyn Monroe. It shows you how strong love really is and how quickly you can become infatuated with someone. It was a cute and good movie about not quite fitting in but also about learning to be yourself.

Bowling for Columbine

Hard to get into it and quite hard to understand. It was a disappointment.

The Celebration (Festen)
½

This was an okay drama. It was kind of bleak but it still hooked you to the screen in a way.

TiMER
TiMER(2010)
½

TiMER was a bit of a disappointment to be honest. I really enjoyed the idea, it was interesting and slightly odd in a fun way. Although I would have actually prefered it if it had been set in the future and made into more of a sci-fi love story than it already was. It was an idea that got you thinking and it really was something well-thought but it could've been better. It was hard to get into it and the whole "TiMER" thing was kind of a continuing mantra that bothered you throughout the movie and made it less interesting.

In Time
In Time(2011)

In Time was a lot better than I expected. It was probably the best sci-fi movie I've ever found myself watching. It had an interesting idea that really made you think. The first five minutes might have made you think that it's rather odd but after five minutes had passed you started to understand and it was actually something special. Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried made a great couple in this movie about time and money, life and death. Fantastic idea and it really makes you think if this might even be a possibility in the future.

Chalet Girl
Chalet Girl(2011)

Chalet Girl is actually a lot better than you expected. It had a wonderful soundtrack, pure British humour and it really made you laugh. It shows how to overcome the grievance that you can feel when you've lost someone whom you love. This is the story about family and love, the story about following your heart and about fighting to save yourself. It was definitely worth a watch.

Julie & Julia

Julie & Julia was an interesting movie with two different time periods. The contrast fit in well in the movie and made it into something special.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

It wasn't quite as good as I'd hoped for. It had an incredible vignette but the acting from the actors just wasn't comparable with the Swedish one. It was okay, but the Swedish one was a lot better.

Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!
½

This was a sweet and interesting comedy. It shows how obsessed someone can be that you shut out everything around you and how you don't even notice what's right in front of you. It had a wonderful soundtrack and Kate Bosworth and Topher Grace really make this comedy into a great laugh.

Scoop
Scoop(2006)
½

This is actually one of the few movies where I don't mind Woody Allen. I actually quite enjoyed it. Scarlett Johansson and Hugh Jackman made it worthwhile. It was an interesting storyline with a nice twist at the end.

Trust
Trust(2011)
½

Trust is the story about, the Internet and love, acceptance and believe it or not, trust. It shows you the consequences of meeting someone on the Internet, someone that you hardly know anything about. It shows what happens when you become so infatuated with someone despite you knowing that there's something wrong with him.
This was an incredible movie with a lot of emotion. The acting from Clive Owen, Catherine Keener and Liana Liberato was fantastic and they really made this movie into a masterpiece.

New Year's Eve
½

New Year's Eve was a sweet romantic comedy. It wasn't exactly the way I'd expected. This movie wasn't as much about love as you'd thought, this one is more about family and friendship and then of course also about love and question "who are you gonna kiss at midnight?"
It was sweet and worthwhile and it definitely had its moments. And with its star-studded cast it was also worthwhile.

I Love You, Man
½

Quite an interesting and slightly eerie comedy. Not a movie to watch more than once. A movie that can be worth a watch if it's on television or if it's borrowed, but it will be a waste of money otherwise.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
½

I must admit that it was better than the first one. Despite this one being two and a half hours long, it was exciting enough for you not to notice. This one was entertaining until the very end, with a cliffhanger that makes you look forwards until a third one.

Sherlock Holmes
½

It wasn't as good as I'd hoped, but it was still an entertainment. Although it felt a bit too long whilst watching it and it could have been shorter. There were loads of time when you thought the movie was about to end, but then there was still half an hour left of it.

The Adventures of Tintin

The Adventures of Tintin was a lot better than I expected. It was beautifully made and it was an interesting story. Throughout the movie you actually forget that it is a cartoon.

Hanna
Hanna(2011)
½

Hanna was a bit of a disappointment. It was interesting and an unusual storyline but there were still some questions that weren't really answered throughout the movie which made it even more confusing towards the end.

Pina
Pina(2011)

Pina wasn't a movie that you actually enjoyed when watching it. It was painful to watch and mainly confusing. Some scenes were beautiful but it was still a confusion which caused to you not being able to focus.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

Breaking Dawn was quite a good one. It was an interesting continuing with a cliffhanger at the end that raised the excitement for part 2. Some parts in this movie weren't made in the way that you'd hoped, but it was still worth watching and some scenes will put a smile on your face.

Evil (Ondskan)

Evil is a story about violence and abuse. This one movie shows how some lives can be and how your upbringing affects your life. It had incredible acting and it really makes you look on life with another perspective.

What's Your Number?

What's Your Number? is probably the worst romantic comedy since year 1924 when the first real romantic comedy was actually made.
The only reason to see it is because Chris Evans is in it, just sad that he's not in it enough for it to be worth it. Anna Faris was, and I truly mean it, absolutely atrocious. She should really stop with acting right this instant or she should take on roles where she doesn't have to speak. That would probably get the movie better reviews.
The storyline was inauthentic, tawdry and the most gimcrack that has been made since the beginning of the 21st century. There was no humour or excitement or anything that made you want to watch it until the end. The whole movie was like pressing the snooze button, just wanting to go back to bed but knowing deep down that you really have to wake up.

One Day
One Day(2011)
½

One Day has a wonderful storyline. It's a story about friendship and love, about life and trying to figure out what you want to do with it.
This is a storyline that is personally better suited in the book. It's hard to press in 20 years into a movie that's only 1 hour and 45 minutes long. Obviously the book that had 435 pages would be more detailed and more understanding.
It was a good adaptation and the movie did follow the book well, some small parts were missing and that is expected even though I felt that some of them would have been important for the story.
I'm not going to spoil the story now, but I must say that I'm happy that the twist in 2006 was in the movie as well. I'm glad that they didn't change it just for the movie's sake. I liked the fact that you could see a scene in the movie and you would know exactly which scene in the book it was taken from seeing as the dialogues were so alike even though some of the settings might not match.
I really liked Jim Sturgess as Dexter. He's incredibly good-looking, he's british and he's a good actor. He played well seeing as you could understand why all those girls would fall for him, but you also sympathised with him when things weren't going too well. I wasn't as keen on Anne Hathaway. I think she's a good actress, but they could have chosen a british one so they'd know that the accent at least would be correct. I think Emma's supposed to come from Yorkshire and I'm not really sure how they speak in that part of England but her accent felt too American. You could hear that it was british when you listened but it felt like she had changed the accent to make it easier to speak for someone who comes from America.
Other than that I quite enjoyed the movie. Some parts might have been too fast and for some it might be hard to understand if you haven't read the book or if you're not aware of the storyline. For me this was one of those movies where I feel that you should have read the book before, to comprehend the story more.
To sum this up it was a good movie with both emotion but also a fantastic connection between the two characters, Em and Dex, Dex and Em. They showed that you can wait your whole life and not know what's just in front of you and that it's never too late to find your true love.

Abduction
Abduction(2011)
½

When watching Abduction I was hoping for something along the lines of the book Girl, Missing by Sophie McKenzie and the series about Janie Johnson by Caroline B. Cooney. When I first read the title of the movie and then read the movie's storyline I thought of someone being stolen or kidnapped and in that way raised in the wrong family, just like the storylines in the books that I just mentioned, but that isn't really the case with this movie. No one is really abducted in it, the title is only really there for effect and to get more people to see it.
I didn't find this movie as bad and dire as everyone else seems to think it is, but I can still see what they mean. After having read all the hateful reviews I started watching the movie with other eyes than if I hadn't read them. The acting from Taylor Lautner and Lily Collins was atrocious, especially from Collins. She really shouldn't act in action movies where she has to play scared and where she has to cry, because it just feels fake and unrealistic when she does it. To be honest, she couldn't even act when all she had to say was 'hello'.
Abduction was also a bit too much of a cliché and it didn't really feel much like an action movie. Some parts felt a bit too lame, and basically this movie was wasted with pure talent, seeing as none of the incredible cast actually acted in it.
Other than that, I did find time to appreciate the movie for what it is, and I could watch it from beginning to end without getting bored. Although, the movie could have still ended up being a lot better than what it was, and seeing the star-studded cast, that would be what you'd expect.

Salt
Salt(2010)

This was a terrible action/thriller movie with a lack of a storyline and a lack of anything resembling excitement.
From the very beginning it was hard to comprehend what it was even about and the fact that every single scene looked incredibly unrealistic and fake didn't make matters easier.
Knowing what a fantastic actress Angelina Jolie is, you would have expected more from her.
This was a slow and boring movie where nothing really happened, and to be frank you would need an eye speculum to even be close to watching it from start to finish.
In other words, it was like putting salt into your wounds, painful and dramatic.

A Little Bit Of Heaven
½

I had high expectations when seeing A Little Bit of Heaven, but sadly it didn't live up to any of the hopes that I had.
This is the story about death and life, and the thin line between them both. This movie could have been remarkable, it could have been this year's recommended tearjerker but instead it was just silly and somewhat confusing.
It felt like the main storyline wasn't lifted in the movie which means that some people might have a hard time to actually comprehend what the message with it is.
I was hoping for a movie that would make me fall in love. I wanted to be able to clearly see the love through the characters, but I didn't. The love wasn't there. The acting on the other hand was bearable, but not more than so. This was a typical movie for Kate Hudson, seeing as she always plays the same characters you would expect her to play the role of Marley. Someone successful with a lot of high opinions and always being able to look at the bright side even when life isn't so bright.
This wasn't as unique or different as I hoped for and the whole part with Whoopi Goldberg just didn't really seem to fit in and it just made the movie even more confusing and more of a disappointment.
Sadly this wasn't the movie of the year as I'd hoped. This ended up being a movie that fails so badly at being an heartbreaking drama, and became a lacklustre comedy that fails to make you laugh instead.

Insidious
Insidious(2011)

Insidious was a big disappointment to be honest. I was hoping for something scary and tense but if that's what you're looking for this most definitely isn't the right movie. It was hard to get into it and the storyline was somewhat confusing which is probably the reason for the lack of concentration and for not making me jump or pulling at my reflexes.
There was no tension, suspense or any scenes that took you by surprise. Every single scene that was in some way supposed to be scary were expected which is a problem seeing as you didn't even blink when it came.
This was an emotionally barren movie that never made you feel sorry for the characters or made you sympathise with them, despite how hard their lives were you never quite felt for them.
You're supposed to feel sorry for the parents when their son is in a coma and might never wake up, aren't you? But I didn't feel it. Because the actors never put enough compassion into their characters for me to feel hooked.
To sum this up I must say that this was a horror movie that was unable to make me jump or make me feel the slightest bit tense, in other words, a disappointment.

Priest
Priest(1995)

Priest takes up subjects such as homosexuality and incest and it asks the question about what is right or wrong.
If it's against the church's rules to let someone else know what someone has confessed, would you still let them know if it happens to be something bad and could help the person in question? Which option would you choose if both of them would end up upsetting someone?
This movie shows the frustration of a priest who only wants to do the right thing but is starting to question the morals, not quite knowing what that really is.
This was a heartbreaking movie about the ethics and the morals and about proving them to yourself. A fascinating movie that definitely ties a knot in your stomach after the last scene.

Submarine
Submarine(2011)
½

Submarine is quite an odd comedy about wanting to fit in and about falling in love.
I quite enjoyed this unusual British comedy to be honest, it was credible and genuine and easy to relate to. We might not all have the same weird and awkward parents that Oliver Tate has to live with, but all the emotions and feelings that pretty much all teenagers go through are there.
This movie is very realistic in that sense, and very true to the point. That's why this atypical movie about school, life, parents and love show that in every lugubrious aspect of life, there's always something to look forward to. And this is a movie that you can look forward to, for its unique storyline and its special way of telling it.

Crazy, Stupid, Love.
½

Crazy, Stupid, Love is a story about love. The transition from Cal who's only been in love and together with one person throughout his whole life and Jacob who changes girlfriends so rapidly that he never has time to actually fall in love.
I must admit, I was highly disappointed with this movie. The trailer made it seem like an entertaining romantic comedy with the humour at the right places. But that wasn't the case. Basically it was slow and hard to get into until the end when the movie just confused you by adding things to the storyline that was unexpected in a bad way. Which just ended up making the ending confusing and almost destroying the rest of the movie.
I wished I had comprehended the movie more and that it had given hints from the beginning that then intertwined until the ending. That would've made at least me enjoy the movie more towards the end!

Blue Crush 2
Blue Crush 2(2011)

Blue Crush 2 should really have had another title. Because the only similarity it really has with the first one is the surfing and the somewhat 'crush', only this one happens to be more on the surfing than the falling in love part. And those two things might seem like the biggest parts of the movies, but they're not. Both movies have depth and emotion and when it comes to that they're not alike, because the main storyline isn't even close to being similar to one another.
This one touched you a lot more than the first, this one proves that there's something worth fighting for and it shows a girl who's determined to search for where she comes from and to find out who she really is.
Along with the amazing soundtrack this movie was definitely a movie that was worth a watch, even more than once!

Love Wedding Marriage

Love Wedding Marriage is a romantic comedy about trying to make things right, but only ending up making things wrong in the end. This is a movie with quite a weak storyline. There are bigger problems than your parents getting divorced and still they're trying to make us think that it's the end of the world. Maybe it would've been if you're a twelve-year-old but seeing as she's actually twenty-eight it didn't really feel like a big deal which just makes you annoyed pretty much throughout the whole movie. It wasn't a good enough reason to neglect your husband.
Other than that it was an entertaining movie. The storyline might have been weak and rather annoying but it was still an entertaining movie and might as well put a tiny smile on your face by the end of it.

The Art of Getting By

The Art of Getting By is the story about not fitting in and falling in love, making friends and discovering who you really are.
This movie might not be as good as you hope for after having seen the trailer, but it's not bad either. This movie shows that there's always something worth fighting for, the only thing you have to do is find it.
Freddie Highmore and Emma Roberts were great together. Highmore carried the whole movie and it was nice to see him in this type of character for once. The chemistry was good between them and the storyline was different which made you wanting to continue watching it.
Although I found the movie a bit too short and it felt like the main happening happened a bit too late. Nothing really happened in the movie to be honest and when the end came along it was hard to comprehend what it was that had actually happened in it.
But other than that it was quite an entertaining movie with a rather different storyline that's definitely worth a watch, but probably not a movie you'll watch more than twice.

Something Borrowed

Something Borrowed is the story about friendship and guilt, love and the fear of saying how you really feel. This might be the type of movie that we've seen a thousand times before. There's nothing different about it. Girl falls in love with best friend's boyfriend. We've read it in books and seen it in movies and there's nothing different about it. We know exactly how it's going to end, but still it pulls us in.
It has a fantastic soundtrack but also a power that makes you physically hate some of the characters which makes you even more hooked when watching the movie. I quite enjoyed it despite it being predictable, because sometimes I can find myself in the mood for predictability, where you know the ending already but this movie still made you want to continue watching it because of the amazing music and the reminder of how it feels to be in love.
Although, when it comes to the title, it can be interpreted your own way. There is a wedding superstition that goes "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a sixpence in your shoe." Maybe that has something to do with it. Seeing as falling for your best friend's fiancée isn't bound to end happily... or is it?

It's Kind of a Funny Story

It's Kind of a Funny Story takes up subjects such as mental illnesses, first love, suicide and making mistakes.
This was quite a different story about things that we can't fully comprehend. It was about something that for us feels completely unrealistic, but maybe it isn't. It was an unusual and different storyline, but the acting still wasn't really that great and it was hard to get into it. But I think that the main problem was, that whilst watching it, it felt like the reason for watching it was more because of the story than the actual movie.

Soul Surfer
Soul Surfer(2011)

Soul Surfer is a story about not giving up and about fighting for what you believe in.
Seeing as I had seen the trailer before watching the movie I knew pretty much exactly what was going to happen since the trailer pretty much gave everything away from the beginning until the very end.
Aside from that it was a quite good movie, somewhat predictable, but since it's based upon a true story it doesn't bother you as much. It's a movie filled with emotions and feelings and even though you knew pretty much what was going to happen in every single scene it still hooked you to the screen. Because it was still an entertaining movie with great acting from the whole cast!

The Winning Season
½

I ended up enjoying The Winning Season a lot more than I expected to. It was heart-warming, funny and entertaining all the way through. Sam Rockwell and Emma Roberts did a great job and carried the whole movie with their humour and their terrific punchlines that definitely made the movie even better.
The movie was somewhat predictable, but that's expected for a movie like this, it was still a sweet, enjoyable movie about believing in something and about making sure that everyone else does too...

Swinging With The Finkels
½

Swinging with the Finkels is quite an odd romantic comedy, with more of the odd comedy than the actual romance.
So, after having watched this movie I'm having a hard time to actually know what I thought of it.
To be honest, my first thought was, who on earth would want to make a comedy like this. And my second thought was, what type of actors would actually want to be in it.
The movie was too odd to actually grasp that I have no idea what I felt when actually watching it. Some parts were quite entertaining, others were just plain weird.
I have loved Mandy Moore until pretty much now. I've seen almost all of her movies, but I don't think I can look at her the same after having seen this one. And the thing is I don't really know why. The movie wasn't that gross, it was just pretty much a nomal comedy, it's just that for me the character Ellie didn't really suit Mandy Moore as a person or an actress, and it just felt wrong watching her play her in the movie...

Lymelife
Lymelife(2008)

Lymelife takes up subjects such as bullying, broken marriages, falling in love and family.
Lymelife has the storyline that I would normally love, but a storyline isn't really all you need to make a good movie, and this one has a lack of everything else: The acting, the directing, the producing.
From the very beginning it felt like a life threatening marathon having to sit through the whole movie. It never really felt like it had a message to begin with and when the movie was finished I just couldn't figure out what it actually was. Everything just felt pointless when watching it.
The last ten minutes were bearable, but to say the least, one hour and thirty-five minutes of my life have been wasted by watching this dire drama that's trying too hard to be something that it most certainly is not...

Rabbit Hole
Rabbit Hole(2010)

Rabbit Hole is the story about the one unthinkable thing for a parent, and the consequences that you have to live with after it happens.
This movie was pretty slow all the way through, which is not really a surprise seeing as it's a drama, but there was still never really a point where something started to happen or a point where it made you want to continue watching. Instead it felt like someone was forcing you to watch it, but really all you wanted to do was to turn it off.
Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart play the couple Becca and Howie. Becca is the woman who can't seem to forget her four-year-old son who died eight months previously. Howie is the man who's trying his best to forget and wanting to go back to the way things were.
I must admit that I usually don't like Nicole Kidman, I find her annoying and irritating and I can't really say that this was an exception, because it wasn't. But it was still easier to cope with her in this movie than in any other.
The movie was realistic and the characters were credible, they showed just how hard it can be to lose a child and the different ways of grieving. How the two parents can grieve differently and how that affects the relationship.
I loved the storyline and the characters that had been created, but the movie was just too slow and it never really grabbed you the way that I'd hoped. This movie could have ended up a lot better, but sadly it didn't...

Friends With Benefits

Friends with Benefits is actually quite an entertaining romantic comedy with a lot more humour than I'd expected.
It was nice to see both Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis playing the main characters in a movie, and they did it good together. But I think they both taught us that sleeping with your best friend is never gonna work, someone always ends up hurt, or ends up falling for the other. To be honest, I don't really like these types of storylines in a movie. Because the scene where they start agreeing to it in the first place never really seems right, it just seems lame when watching it on screen. The whole 'benefits part of the movie is always handled in a way that makes me dislike the movie a little instead of actually liking it.
Although the soundtrack in it was great and I liked the cute ending that made you happy and giddy after the end credits started rolling. All in all it was a comedy worth watching that will definitely make you laugh more than once and might even put a smile on your face!

Beastly
Beastly(2011)

Beastly ended up being a real disappointment. This movie had so much potential but it didn't live up to its expectations at all.
The chemistry between the main characters wasn't there, you never really got into the actual movie. It had a lack of emotion and feelings and when the movie ended you didn't feel anything. You just felt hollow. This movie could have ended a lot better, and after having seen the trailer it really seemed like it would have, but I'm sorry to say that it was a disappointment. It felt like nothing really happened, but still a lot happened. Whilst watching a movie you're supposed to feel something, but you don't when watching this one. You don't feel sorry for the characters, you don't hold your breath hoping that they'll end up together, you don't really do anything, you just sit back and watch until it ends, and when it does you're nothing, you're empty...

Black & Blue
Black & Blue(2009)
½

Black and Blue is the story about life when it's at its darkest. The story about losing everything you know and about meeting friends where you least expect it.
Black and Blue is about not giving up, it was an incredible movie with emotions and feelings and the exquisite soundtrack just made the emotions dig even deeper.
Catherine Evans and Derrick Denicola did a great job when acting in this drama about living life on the outside and searching to fit in. They portrayed their roles wondrously and they taught me that when it might feel like it's not worth living, there's always something that's worth living for...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2
½

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 has truly led us to the end of an era. After ten years we've come to the last installment of the movies about Harry Potter.
This was definitely a good end to a masterpiece, seeing as I haven't read the books I didn't really know what to expect, but it definitely kept me hooked to my chair until the very end.
It ended well, and I'm glad that you get to know how everything works out for them in the end, and with the heart-wrenching scene before it, this was definitely a good way to end the era that has guided us all the way through our lives!

Return to Halloweentown
½

Return to Halloweentown is quite an interesting and different movie. Perhaps a little too short but other than that it was a cute and entertaining film, but I won't give it more than that. The thing is, this is one of those movies that you think you like whilst watching it, but when it's gone a few minutes since you actually watched it you'll have forgotten what you actually thought in the first place!

16 Wishes
16 Wishes(2010)
½

16 Wishes is the story about the consequences that you have to live with after you get what you wish for.
It was a different type of fairytale, and it could be quite entertaining at times. The soundtrack was actually really good although the acting was perhaps not that great, and the storyline was too much of a fairytale with too little happening for me to classify it as any good. But sometimes you get in the mood to just watch a feel-good movie that won't end up making you feel depressed after the end credits...

Never Let Me Go
½

I tried to read the book but ended up not getting very far. I wanted to read the whole book before watching this so I could see if there were any big differences between the movie adaptation and the actual book. In the end though, I decided to just go ahead and watch the movie even though I'd only actually read four chapters.
The thing about the movie is that it's about a subject that we're not too familiar with which, for me at least, got me quite confused. It was hard to keep up when I couldn't really understand the actual storyline.
Fantastic acting by Knightley, Garfield and Mulligan who played Ruth, Tommy and Kathy and I'm truly impressed by Ella Purnell, Charlie Rowe and Isobel Meikle-Small who play the younger Ruth, Tommy and Kathy. Their acting abilities were amazing, not to mention how they were perfect for the part, not only the fact that they could really act, but also the fact that they looked so similar to the actors who played them as older that it truly felt like it actually was them when they were younger. That's incredible casting just there, it's hard to make a movie real when you need more than one actor to play the same character, but here it felt incredibly real!
Other than that this was a different unusual movie that's worth a watch, but in some parts it felt too unusual for me to be able to actually appreciate it!

True Grit
True Grit(2010)

True Grit left me pleasantly surprised. It had a lot more emotion, feeling and excitement than I could ever have imagined. The movie is about getting even and grief, losing someone you love and about searching for the one who destroyed everything to begin with.
Hailee Steinfeld did an amazing job when it comes to playing the role of Mattie Ross, her acting ability was incredible and she's truly the one who carried the whole movie alive and ended up making it into a masterpiece!

The Adjustment Bureau

I actually quite enjoyed this movie. It was somewhat confusing and it was a bit hard to figure out how the storyline actually worked, but I liked the chemistry between the main characters. This was overall a sweet romantic action movie that's definitely worth a watch.

Water for Elephants

I'm one of those weird people who after having seen the movie adaptation of a book that I've read, I actually prefer the movie. Having said that I must admit, I did read the book that this movie is based upon, and I think a part of me actually prefered it. I'm not saying that I loved the book, because I didn't and I'm not saying that I hated the movie, because I didn't do that either. Some parts of the book were boring and confusing and there were loads that I didn't really comprehend since I just wanted to finish it as fast as possible. Therefore I couldn't really bother to think about what I actually was reading. But I still felt empty inside after having seen the movie since the scenes in the book that I'd actually understood, the scenes that had been important for me just wasn't in the movie at all.
The acting was great, there was nothing wrong with it, but there were some parts that I felt needed to be there but they weren't. The movie could have also been more brutal. The book was cruel and mean and I felt that it didn't really come across when I saw it on screen. People say that the movie was heart-wrenching and made you cry but I didn't see it, not after having read it in words, I couldn't see it at all. Christoph Waltz should have been even more creepy and scary than he actually was, his character was too human on screen.
I can't really say that the movie had odd casting since I knew about the movie when I started reading the book. So in every sentence that I read I had the actors in mind and I know that they could have done a better job than they actually did.
But other than that it was a good movie, it was different and interesting. Although, it's probably a movie that will be enjoyed more if you haven't read the book before watching it.

Mr. Brooks
Mr. Brooks(2007)

Mr. Brooks is a psychological thriller about an addiction to murder. It was somewhat confusing and slow at the beginning but it got better towards the middle of it. The acting wasn't that great except certain scenes with Danielle Panabaker. The movie was interesting and made you want to continue watching it. Although it would have been a lot better if it wasn't for the exceedingly useless ending of it all, the last scene of the movie was unnecessary and should have just been skipped...

The Skeleton Key

I actually really enjoyed The Skeleton Key. It wasn't as predictable as I'd expected. It was exciting all the way through and it made you think. It had a great cast who did some terrific acting, although I'm not too fond of the ending. I usually enjoy confusing endings that make you think. Although this one still ended up being a disappointment. I like endings where they show you how the puzzle pieces fit together but that it still makes you think because even though you know the answer it still wasn't what you expected. But this movie doesn't really let you know anything which just ends up making you feel empty inside.

The Dilemma
The Dilemma(2011)

I felt slightly disappointed when watching this comedy. The beginning was quite slow and it took a while until you actually got into the movie. A few scenes and lines from the trailer weren't actually in the movie which I thought was sad since some of them could have made the movie better than it actually was. Some parts of the movie were exciting and heart-wrenching whilst others just made you feel nauseated. This is a combination that's hard to know if it's a positive or negative thing. Overall it was a comedy that could have been a hit but ended up being average and a quite entertaining one if you're bored at home on a Saturday night.

The Other Woman
½

The Other Woman is a story about grief and love, a story about family and divorce.
Some parts of the movie felt unrealistic whilst others felt genuine and credible.
Natalie Portman and the rest of the cast show some extraordinary acting in this drama about letting others in and about showing your true love to the ones you actually care about.

Involuntary (De Ofrivilliga)

This is one of the most boring movies I have seen in a long time. The director maybe thought the way of filming this was interesting, but it just made you, as a spectator, fall asleep. It didn't capture you at all. From the beginning until the very end you had to force yourself to keep your eyes open.
The fact that you hardly ever saw any faces of the people talking and how the camera always stood still just made the movie even worse. The fact that there were three people talking but you only saw one or two of them, and for the rest you just heard the voices but didn't see any faces. That was just frustrating and made it really uncomfortable to watch the movie.
This is a movie that doesn't really have a storyline and it doesn't really have a thread that goes through it. Nothing makes sense. When this movie has reached the end you will be so relieved and happy that you don't have to sit through anymore of the movie that has been like a strangle for one hour and thirty-seven minutes.

Contact
Contact(1997)

Contact is a science-fiction, at least that's what it says it is, but it's not as exciting or interesting as a science-fiction can be. This is a movie that isn't made for everyone. It's made for the people who understand astronomy, for the people who understand the hype of it. The movie was quite complicating, and not really understanding what was happening and what the characters were talking about, made it hard to keep yourself awake during it.
This movie started to become enjoyable when it was twenty-five minutes left of it, but that doesn't make up for the two hours that almost made you fall asleep.
Jena Malone was the highlight of this movie, just a shame that she wasn't in the movie enough. She didn't really look like she could be a young Jodie Foster, but she was certainly the best actor in the movie.
It's sad to say that this movie was a disappointment, and it's sad that you never really get any answers to all the questions. Since this science-fiction isn't about the creatures that actually live on other planets, but rather the questions that ask if there actually are creatures on other planets, it just ended up not being as exciting.

Chaos Theory
Chaos Theory(2008)

Chaos Theory is actually quite an entertaining movie about family and marriage, about friendship and misundertandings. It takes up the subject of how one misunderstanding can lead to another and the consequences that follow. It tells the story of how things can change in an instant and how one little thing can be the reason for everything else happening. How if that little thing hadn't happened, the rest of it probably wouldn't have either.
Ryan Reynolds might be a bit too young to play the father of a twenty-something-year-old it felt like, since he didn't really change much from when he had a daughter that was seven to when his daughter was about twenty. But he still played the role well which made it to a possibility, and it didn't get on your nerves as much as it could have.
The rest of the cast were also great. And together with the fantastic soundtrack they made this movie into an entertainment and a worthwhile experience. Emily Mortimer played great as the wife and Matreya Fedor was great as the daughter. Together they made a family worth watching. They teach you that you shouldn't interrupt conversations and you should listen to what the other person has to say before you add something. It might even turn out that everything was a misunderstanding after all.

Conviction
Conviction(2010)

Conviction is a story about a sister and a brother, it's the story about the true compassion between the two. It's a story about how you would do anything for the other.
This movie truly shows what love is all about. It's a true story which just makes it even more compelling. It's about giving up your life just to be able to save someone else.
The storyline of this movie truly breaks my heart. How can you seriously be wrongly convicted for murder? How can you destroy someone's life like that? How can you put someone in prison when you don't even have enough evidence to prove that the someone is guilty?
This movie pulled at my heartstrings, mostly because it's based on a true story which made it even more genuine than it already was. The acting was also amazing. Minnie Driver did an excellent accent and so did the rest of the cast.
This is an impressive movie that is most certainly worth a watch, it shows how a life can be turned upside down and how someone can be so determined that she doesn't give up, instead she saves her family. You should definitely watch this for the heartbreakingly true storyline, and the incredible acting that makes this movie into a masterpiece!

How Do You Know
½

I never thought I could ever say that I'm truly disappointed with a movie that has Reese Witherspoon in it, but I am. And even though I'd really like to punch the sentence that I just wrote I can't help it.
The thing is, that if this wasn't what I expected I don't really know what I expected. I mean, I'd seen clips and trailers and this should've been everything that I thought it would be, but it wasn't.
Maybe it was the fact that the acting didn't really shine through in this comedy that happened to have a useless manuscript and not such a great directing. Maybe that's why it wasn't as good as I'd hoped.
I thought I was going to enjoy this movie after having read all the bad reviews. Because usually after reading all the bad reviews I end up liking it because it was better than I expected, but that wasn't the case with this one.
Reese Witherspoon has done a lot better in all her other movies - the thrillers, comedies and dramas - and I hope she shows how good she really is in the movies to come.

Creation
Creation(2010)
½

Creation is a story about science and a story about losing someone you love. This movie captures the thoughts that a parent feels after having lost a child. It's a very well made movie with flashbacks and reality and it was somewhat hard to figure out what was actually happening and what had already happened and what was just the person's imagination.
But that was the magic of it all. It made you think in a good way. It caught your attention. Creation is filled with insanity and guilt, two subjects that truly makes this movie into something spectacular. The acting from Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly was extraordinary, they did really well as Charles and Emma Darwin and is definitely one of the biggest reasons to why you should see this. Martha West was also incredible as Annie, this is her first movie and she was outstanding in her role.
To sum this up I'd like to say that I definitely recommend this movie. It was hard to understand in some scenes, but that just made the movie even better and insane than it already was, because this movie might as well leave you somewhat insane and out of the ordinary...

Blue Valentine

Blue Valentine is a story about marriage and life, it's a story about the times when life was beautiful and amazing and about the times they just weren't any longer.
Blue Valentine had a fantastic imagery and was filmed in a simple way that made the movie even more realistic. This was one of those movies that felt real from the start until the very end.
Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams were great as Dean and Cindy. Their chemistry was impeccable. In the beginning you could understand, as a spectator, why everything was so great. You could understand why they fell in love in the first place. Then, in the end, you could understand why everything wasn't great anymore. You could understand why they fell out of love with each other.
That was the incredible thing about the movie. The acting was so real that it was like watching a real married couple on screen. You could see the chemistry when they were in love and you could see it when they weren't and you could understand why on both parts. That's incredible acting just there!
The rest of the movie was just beautifully shot, it was as if the married couple in the movie were filming their life, and that's another thing that made this movie into an extraordinary experience!

Mean Girls 2
Mean Girls 2(2011)
½

To be honest, I could go as far as to say that this movie was better than the first one. This movie had more feelings put into it and I liked the fact that this movie was more about getting even and the fact that in this movie Jo never actually made friends with The Plastics. This movie had a better storyline and plot, the soundtrack was great and I was entertained from the beginning until the very end. A lot better than I'd expected!

Äideistä parhain (Den Bästa av mödrar) (Mother of Mine)

Mother of Mine is a story about war and love, it's a story about death and mothers. I didn't think I was going to enjoy this movie at the beginning but it ended up being incredible. The acting from Maria Lundqvist was brilliant and she was the one who truly carried the whole movie, every scene that she was in was gripping and remarkable. This is definitely worth a watch!

Sommaren med Göran - En midsommarnattskomedi

Sommaren med Göran is a comedy that was better than I'd expected. It was entertaining and had pure humour pretty much all the way through. The soundtrack was great and even though the acting wasn't the best the movie still managed to keep you entertained from the beginning until the very end.

The Fighter
The Fighter(2010)
½

The Fighter is a story about boxing and brotherhood, it's a story about drug use and family.
This movie started off slow, when the movie started you didn't quite know where it would lead you, it could have ended up failing miserably or it could have ended up being an amazement, and it felt like both were just as likely.
To me this movie wasn't as good as I had expected before I actually saw it, but it didn't end up failing as I thought it might do after having seen the first ten minutes of it. Towards the middle and end the movie actually started to become really worthwhile.
Although the acting from Christian Bale really wasn't as good as you would have hoped after he won an academy award and everything. Personally I thought Mark Wahlberg deserved that award more and he wasn't even nominated. The acting from Wahlberg felt more genuine whilst Bale had a problem in showing what he was supposed to feel, he didn't exuberate of feelings as Wahlberg did.
I also thought Amy Adams should have won the award instead of Melissa Leo, I couldn't see anything special in Leo's particular portrayal of the character that she did. Adams was better in the way that she portrayed her role and in the accent that she had. It was a different role for her and she was excellent when playing Charlene.
Other than that The Fighter is an interesting movie, had it not been based on a true story I would have found it too predictable, but seeing as it is you can forget about it and actually enjoy the movie.

Sanctum
Sanctum(2011)

Sanctum is pretty much 127 Hours under water, and then of course not as good.
This movie was somewhat slow to get into and it took a bit too long until it got to the actual main plot.
It also felt a bit unrealistic and the part in the beginning with the water coming in to the mask could have been deleted. It felt unrealistic in that something terrible happens and then later they go down in the water again and yet again something terrible happens. They should have stuck with the main plot instead of confusing us.
The movie was slow until about the middle of it and then all of a sudden it got exciting and it grossed you out and you wanted to know what would happen next. That's how it should have been throughout the whole movie. The blood and the excitement and the feelings that truly touched you.
So, overall the movie was okay, it could have been done a lot better and the plot could have come sooner and the 3D wasn't really relevant to the movie since there weren't really many scenes that it could be used in. The movie was a bit of a disappointment, but still worth a watch when it comes to the incredibly gory and exciting scenes towards the end.

Unknown
Unknown(2011)
½

Unknown is a movie that takes up subjects such as identity and sanity and the confusing consequences that can follow after an accident.
This was an interesting and an entertaining thriller that throughout the whole movie hooked you to the screen, desperate to know the solution to the problem.
Although when the solution came it wasn't as good as you'd hoped, it wasn't as far-fetched or clever you'd thought it would be. Some things were confusing and by the end there were a few pieces that you couldn't quite put together.
Other than that it was an entertaining thriller that definitely had your attention until the very end!

I Am Number Four
½

I actually enjoyed I Am Number Four, maybe that's because everyone else seems to hate it which means that my expectations were low when seeing it. I liked the action and the romance and the way it was made. It was entertaining and really kept you hooked throughout the movie.

No Strings Attached
½

No Strings Attached is quite an entertaining comedy about the complications that follow after having slept with a friend.
Even though the movie experience was a joyful ride there were still some scenes that were unnecessary and it felt like they were making a problem out of something that isn't a problem at times.
It was also confusing when it came to the role that Ophelia Lovibond plays, was she actually supposed to be British in the movie or did she just miserably fail at doing an American accent? Cause you never quite find that out.
Otherwise the movie was an entertainment and will definitely put a smile on your mouth.

Black Swan
Black Swan(2010)
½

Black Swan is a powerful and sensational story about insanity and it shows you what can happen when you want something so badly that it ends up taking over your entire life.
Natalie Portman was definitely deserving of the academy award, she portrayed the role of the ballerina Nina Sayers wondrously and managed to keep the audience hooked until the very end. Her role was what carried the whole movie alive and she was the one who really made this movie into a worthwhile experience.
The director Darren Aronofsky has also done a spectacular job at doing this psychological thriller into something mesmerizing. This movie will make you wince, it will make you put your hands over your mouth because of the shock and the somewhat grossness of the movie. This was incredibly engrossing and it will most definitely engage you throughout the whole film...

Bram Stoker's Dracula
½

The storyline was a bit too vague in this movie and at times it felt like it didn't really have one. It was confusing and hard at times to know if scenes were actually happening or if it was a flashback. There was also a lack of chemistry between Winona Ryder and Gary Oldman, and between Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves. This means that you don't really care who she ends up with and also made the movie experience a bit dull since you had to force yourself to stay awake throughout the whole movie.

Alien3
Alien3(1992)

This is the worst Alien movie. Nothing much seemed to happen, it was slow and it took too long until the story actually began. It's worth watching if you've seen the first two, but it will still leave you disappointed.

Splice
Splice(2010)
½

Splice is a science-fiction horror and has a strong resemblence to Frankenstein, in that a new creature is created. It was a somewhat odd movie, it started off good but then it started to get a bit too much out of control until it was so odd and weird that you didn't quite know what to think. The ending was just too confusing and wrong and wasn't quite right for this movie at all.

Ondine
Ondine(2010)

Ondine was a beautiful and sensational movie about life both in and out of the water. It was good how it went right into the plot but it was still quite slow at times. Colin Farrell, Alicja Bachleda and Alison Barry did great acting jobs and together they made an enchanting story that's definitely worth a watch.

New York, I Love You

New York, I Love You is a movie with a great cast that takes up the subject of love. In this movie you are to experience the different types of loves that there are in the world. Although I was personally a bit disappointed in the way that they'd done it. There wasn't as much variation between the loves as you would've hoped. It was still quite an entertaining movie but could have been better.

The Switch
The Switch(2010)
½

The Switch is an entertaining comedy. Thomas Robinson was great as Sebastian and the storyline was cute and enjoyable. Not a movie to watch too many times but still worth watching once.

127 Hours
127 Hours(2010)
½

127 Hours is a true story about survival, about not giving up.
This was a well directed claustrophobic movie, it engages you and it drags you to the Blue John canyon where it's all happening.
Danny Boyle did an excellent job when directing this, he made it all feel so real and he really made you think after the movie's end. He put in reality, flashbacks and hopes in a spectacular way, sometimes it confused you which was a good thing in this sense, because mostly it just made you think, and it never stopped you from thinking.
James Franco was incredible as the role of Aron Ralston, he engaged the audience and really glued us to our chairs. The character Aron Ralston is someone to look up to, someone who doesn't give up, someone who would do anything to survive and James Franco portrayed him wondrously on screen.
By the end of the movie I was so lost inside of it that I didn't want to move, I wanted it to continue, I wanted to know everything that happened afterwards. I wanted to know all the answers. This shows just how mesmerized the movie will leave you.
This is one of the most thought-provoking and remarkable movies that you'll find yourself watching in a long time, and it is definitely worth more than one watch, because it's one of those movies that is there to watch a few times. Because every time you will see something else that you hadn't noticed the time before.

Crazy Heart
Crazy Heart(2009)
½

Crazy Heart was a good movie with fine performances from Jeff Bridges, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Colin Farrell but that was pretty much all it really was.
It never really engaged me and I was rarely focused on the screen.
Even though the performances and the singing was incredible, the movie itself was still kind of slow and hard to get into, but still worth a watch.

Losing Isaiah

Losing Isaiah is the story about making mistakes, it's the story about not giving up and about fighting for what you believe in.
Halle Berry showed an extraordinary performance as the role of Khaila and Jessica Lange was incredible as Margaret.
It was emotional and thoughtful, although still quite slow and hard to get into. During some scenes it didn't really catch your attention but during others it did. It's definitely worth watching for the performance of Halle Berry though, her acting made the character realistic, credible and truly genuine. Very impressive!

The Darjeeling Limited
½

The only good thing with The Darjeeling Limited was that it was short, so I didn't have to wait too long before I could fall asleep.
One thing that annoyed me was that Owen Wilson hadn't dyed his hair black or something, because he didn't look to be a brother of Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman at all. This movie was also pretty confusing, not quite understanding when scenes were a flashback or not just made this movie even worse than it already was.
The Darjeeling Limited was a movie with a lack of storyline and emotion. The movie could also have ended earlier. It felt like this movie had five endings, but the movie just continued and continued when it basically could have ended fifteen minutes before. The ending was pointless, seeing as there was a scene that could have suited as an ending earlier, then this movie wouldn't have continued with nothing useful to say.

Morning Glory

When deciding to watch Morning Glory I was worried that it would be one of those movies that seems really good when watching the trailer, but that it then turns out that the trailer used all the good scenes and that there's none left. That wasn't the case with this movie though. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that this movie had pure humour all the way through.
Rachel McAdams really carried this movie with her role, she was funny and made the audience hate her and love her at the same time. I loved the chemistry between McAdams and Patrick Wilson, that's just the thing that made me hate McAdams character a little bit more, because I desperately didn't want her to screw it up.
Harrison Ford was also great as Mike Pomeroy, he was grumpy and gloomy and dreary practically all the way through the whole movie and he did a good job at it.
So overall this was an entertaining movie that included humour and love and other feelings such as having a hard time to show how you feel. This is definitely worth a watch.

Then She Found Me
½

Then She Found Me was rather slow, and there was never really a point where I got into the movie. Things happened quite fast and nothing felt that realistic whilst watching it. Things just happened all the time and I just didn't feel as touched by the movie as I should have so I just couldn't care less about the things that happened to the characters.

The Other Me
The Other Me(2000)
½

The Other Me was slightly slow at first and a few scenes were unnecessary, but it ended up being quite enjoyable after a while. It entertained you and was a different, but still fun to watch, movie.

Laura Smiles
Laura Smiles(2006)
½

Laura Smiles is a story about death and regret, about wanting to rewind time and about grieving.
This movie is the most touching, riveting and thought-provoking movie I have seen in a long time.
Through flashbacks you get to see the transition of one person from two different time periods.
It was wonderfully filmed and directed. It showed such a profound message. How a love can be so deep, how a certain love can be the only thing that really matters.
Petra Wright was incredible as Laura, she had this terrific way of using her voice and her facial expressions to truly touch the audience. She reached me and managed to make all the character's feelings dig into me.
This was a truly astonishing movie about not being able to forget someone. All the feelings and sorrows of the movie were so discernible and so clear, but also so magical. It will forever stay in my heart and I will always be reminded of the love's true powers.

Stay
Stay(2005)

Stay takes up subjects such as suicide and the difference between fantasy and reality.
This is a confusing movie. By the end of it you will have a hard time putting all the puzzle pieces together. Maybe it's one of those movies you have to see many times to fully comprehend the concept of it. This movie was exceptionally well shot, the imagery was fantastic and the photography was astounding. The pictures and the music of this movie fit perfectly. Even though it only had about six songs, the few songs that it did have managed to make the movie even better.
The acting was also incredible. Ewan McGregor did an amazing American accent, Ryan Gosling was brilliant as the suicidal student Henry Lethem and Naomi Watts put a spark to the movie when playing Lila. If you put all these details together I can say that Stay was an endearing and thought-provoking movie that will make you think and confuse you and most certainly keep you hooked from the beginning until the very end!

Lost In Austen

Lost in Austen is quite a unique story about truly being trapped in your favourite book.
I loved Jemima Rooper as Amanda Price. She had an incredible voice that just puts joy to the whole movie. This movie just made me like Pride and Prejudice, as I hadn't done before.
Quite an entertainment to be honest!

Now You See It
½

It was hard to get into this movie. It never really captured you or kept you hooked. It never really made you wanting to continue watching it.
It was pretty slow and nothing much happened. It felt like the whole movie was just the middle and nothing really happened before and after.
It was an okay movie, although it almost made you fall asleep in a few scenes.

Leaving (Partir)

Leaving (Partir) is a story about passion and lust, about falling in love and abandoning your family.
I found this movie quite predictable, seeing as I could understand just about how the movie would end from the very beginning.
I thought things moved way too quickly and everything happened too fast. Which means that nothing really felt that realistic. When the ending came, the movie just left me empty. I had no real feelings towards it. Since I had kind of predicted everything that was about to happen from the very beginning, and when almost the exact same thing that I had predicted happened, I just couldn't have any true emotions towards the film. The movie was slightly too short for a storyline like this one, and I guess there's a reason for that, because had it been any longer I would have fallen asleep. But the storyline could have been made better and more realistic, and it was a shame that it wasn't.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

I hate to say that I didn't enjoy this movie.
It didn't feel as touching as it should have felt. I didn't feel any true emotions towards the film.
The movie was slow and never really managed to capture the feelings. I was unfocused and never quite managed to concentrate during the movie.
It felt like nothing really happened, nothing that made me want to continue watching to find out how the story would end.
Quite a disappointment to be honest.

Me and Orson Welles
½

Me and Orson Welles was one of those movies that was somewhat slow in some scenes and somewhat entertaining in others. One of those movies that kind of ends up leaving you confused because you're not quite sure what you're supposed to think.
It was interesting and different, not worth watching more than once but still worth the experience!

The King's Speech

The King's Speech is the story about starting to believe in yourself and to go after your dream.
This movie was one of those dramas that touched you, but at the same time had pure humour all the way through.
The acting was fantastic. Colin Firth is certainly deserving of the Academy award that he got. He showed talent where he could both stammer and make the audience laugh whilst watching at the same time. Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter were also great as Lionel Logue and Queen Elizabeth. Together the trio made an excellent movie that's most certainly worth a watch.
This movie also had a message, it wanted to say something, and all the way through, as an audience, I could understand what that message was. You should believe in yourself, because as long as you do that you can strive for a goal and actually succeed.

The Thirteenth Year
½

The Thirteenth Year was an entertaining family movie. It was quite interesting and enjoyable where you wanted to continue to watch it.
It had a good message where it taught you to see the friendship in everyone, because sometimes the real friends are the ones that you haven't really noticed.
So overall it was an entertaining movie that might even put a little smile on your face by the end of it.

Tru Confessions

Tru Confessions is a movie that takes up subjects such as alienation and mental illness, family and life.
It was slightly hard to get into it and the movie tended to jump back and forth from being boring to being sweet and emotional. The storyline has a lot of feelings and emotions, but sometimes the movie didn't show them well enough.
The acting wasn't that great but the movie still managed to touch me in some scenes and managed to keep me entertained during most of it.

It's a Boy Girl Thing
½

It's a Boy Girl Thing is one of those storylines that we have seen so many times. In forexample Freaky Friday and Wish Upon a Star, but still this movie managed to be different. Since here we didn't see how the relationship changed between a mother and a daughter or two sisters, instead we saw two neighbours who hate each other and have nothing in common. That, and the fact that it was about a boy and a girl changed the storyline slightly.
Although it was still quite predictable and this movie didn't manage to be as good as the others with the same storyline. The majority of this movie was boring and the majority of it was disgusting without any real meaning. I didn't find it that funny. To be frank, it was quite a disappointment.

Veronika Decides to Die

Veronika Decides to Die is a powerful story about giving up and learning to find something to live for at the same time.
This was a riveting story about learning the meaning of life and comprehending what life is all about. This movie will touch you in ways that you never expected. It will make you feel something.
Sarah Michelle Gellar was excellent as Veronika, she showed an acting ability that we hadn't yet seen from her and she shone wondrously in her role.
Veronika Decides to Die is truly a magnifiscent movie, a movie that's there to teach us all a lesson about life. It is most certainly worth living.

Winter's Bone

Winter's Bone is the story about poverty, it's the story about searching for someone just so you can save your family.
This movie wasn't at all as good as I'd hoped for it to be. The acting from Jennifer Lawrence in particular was spectacular. But the movie still had a lack of keeping me hooked. It didn't make me want to continue watching it and the movie didn't feel as exciting as I had hoped for.
It didn't really feel as the journey as I'd thought and some parts of the movie jumped too fast, not really knowing what was happening. Some scenes had a lack of real emotion and some scenes had a lot of it. But the acting was still amazing, even if the movie did leave me slightly disappointed.

Hundtricket the Movie
½

This is a sweet Swedish movie about falling in love.
It has pure humour and entertainment all the way through. It is one of those movies that you can see many times and always enjoy. This movie will put a smile on your face by the end of it.

Blue Smoke
Blue Smoke(2007)

Blue Smoke started off really good but then it kind of slowed down. The storyline didn't feel as terrible as I had thought it would. Everything that happened felt more like a coincidence, since there were only two people that had tragically died in a fire.
There were also a lot of questions that I felt that this movie didn't answer but should have and I felt that there wasn't really any chemistry between Reena and Bo Goodnight.
The movie had potential in the beginning but it felt like you couldn't solve the puzzle. You couldn't put the pieces together and figure out how everything worked, which was a shame.

Nora Roberts' Montana Sky
½

I thought this was the worst movie based on a Nora Roberts' novel that I've seen. I didn't see the point of it and I found it too slow and nothing really happened. It never quite kept me hooked and when you finally found out the reason for everything happening in the movie I didn't feel shocked, I just couldn't care less.
The romance between Willa and Ben didn't seem to have as much meaning as it should have and it didn't even feel like terrible things were happening whilst watching it. When you then found out who had done it I hadn't even seen the character in the movie before which made me not care so much.

A Boyfriend for Christmas
½

A Boyfriend for Christmas was a somewhat entertaining christmas movie. It showed how you just must believe and it might just come true.
It was different but at the same time not and it was simply one of those christmas movies that's there to keep you entertained, and I was, entertained that is.

Nora Roberts' Angels Fall

Angels Fall is the story about running away from life, about avoiding the truth.
It was really well directed where you clearly understood what was a flashback and what was the present. It was wonderfully shot and the chemistry between Heather Locklear and Johnathon Schaech was great.
It was an exciting movie where you throughout it wanted to know what would happen. It was plausible and really kept me hooked!

First Daughter
½

First Daughter is one of those movies that you actually enjoy whilst watching it, but afterwards you have a hard time saying what you actually thought of the movie. The beginning was different and fairytale-like and I liked the story about Samantha and James and the chemistry between them. It had a good soundtrack and some parts weren't as good as others, but it was still an entertaining movie even if you've seen it all before.

The Book of Stars
½

The Book of Stars is the story about taking care of people, it's the story about not wanting to let go.
Jena Malone shows a mesmerizing acting ability in this movie. She truly shows that she was born to do this. She made this movie feel more of a reality whilst Mary Stuart Masterson broke my heart before putting it back together.
They both made an amazing sisterhood, a sisterhood that will be remembered for life.
Watching them together I could almost feel my heart about to decay because of the power of emotion that I felt inside of me.
The storyline was enchanting and terrifically made and the two main actresses really made this movie into a masterpiece!

En kärlekshistoria (A Swedish Love Story)
½

A Swedish Love Story is the story about first love.
To be honest this movie really annoyed me. The people spoke in slow motion and everything they did was hundred times slower than it usually is. The parents were so annoying in fact that I had this urge to slap them.
The soundtrack and the storyline was good, but that was just about it. Everything else was too slow to keep me interested.

Extraordinary Measures
½

Extraordinary Measures is the story about grief and the battle you have to fight to save your children.
The storyline was heartwarming and breathtaking but somehow the trailer was better than the movie. The trailer touched my heart more than the movie did. The story was sad and emotional but all the feelings of sadness weren't there. The movie didn't feel as sad as it should have.
The acting from Brendan Fraser and Harrison Ford wasn't as good as it could have been. They didn't show the emotions in their facial expressions which is truly what made this movie worse. Because the movie didn't feel as real and heartbreaking as I had hoped for from the very beginning.

Welcome to the Rileys

Welcome to the Rileys is the story about grief and hope, it's the story about building friendship and helping others.
Welcome to the Rileys was different, the storyline was fantastic and the movie could have ended up being much better than it actually was. The acting was great on some level and the directing was amazing but it still wasn't as good as I'd hoped for.
It was slow and there was never really a point in the movie when things really started to happen. Although it was interesting to see Kristen Stewart in a role like this, in some scenes she managed to show som pure talent.
I liked the message of this movie, it had depth and emotion, but it was hard for that message to reach out to me as an audience and that's truly what broke this movie into not being as good as it could have been!

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas)

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is the story about an exquisite friendship. It's the story about being confused and about breaking the rules.
It's one of those movies that will make you think afterwards. It will be stuck on your mind and not being able to take it away. It's a remarkable story that will frustrate you on so many levels. You'll feel lucky to be alive.
This is one of the most heartbreaking movies I've seen in a long time, this is a movie that will fill you up with so many feelings and emotions until the very end when the tears will prickle down your cheeks.
The engaging performances from Asa Butterfield and Jack Scanlon were terrific, they made this superb movie into something unique and enchanting. They made the movie even more heartbreaking than it already was.
On top of that Vera Farmiga and David Thewlis did a remarkable job when playing the parents and together they all made this movie into one that will clearly tug at your heartstrings and make your heart stop until long after the movie's end!

Nora Roberts' Carolina Moon

Carolina Moon is the story about grief, it's the story about blaming the wrong people and falling in love whilst in danger.
I actually really enjoyed this movie. I thought Claire Forlani and Oliver Hudson had an amazing chemistry and the storyline was fantastic.
Although there were a few stupid mistakes where the actors and the director should have known better. A few mistakes that would have been so easily fixed but the actors didn't seem to notice that they had said one thing in one scene and another in the next.
If I don't look at the stupid mistakes though, I must say that this movie was a real experience. It was filmed terrifically and it really kept you hooked until the very end.
The ending was a bit vague and some pieces were hard to know what was what but other than that it was an amazing movie with a fantastic storyline that was definitely worth a watch!

The Go-Getter
½

The Go-Getter is a typical road movie, only this one probably isn't as good as the rest of them.
The soundtrack was great but the movie in general jumped too fast between scenes. Some scenes that should've been there to make it easier for the audience wasn't and it was somewhat confusing where you didn't quite know what was happening and it was hard to put the puzzle pieces together.
The emotions of the movie didn't feel as emotional as I'd hoped for and by the end of it I just couldn't figure out what the message was or what the writer and director wanted to say by making this movie.
The highlight of the movie was Zooey Deschanel, she did a remarkable job and both her acting and her character was a great part of the movie.
The rest of the movie was just moving and moving forwards but never getting anywhere, like when you're trying to run or walk but you can't because your legs are like stuck to the ground, The Go-Getter was a bit like that...

Elephant
Elephant(2003)

Elephant is a story that takes up subjects such as homosexuality, bullying and eating disorders. Having heard that this movie was similar to 2:37 I really wanted to see it.
Elephant was the first one out of the two to be made, but I still prefered the latter. 2:37 is a movie where the problems are bigger and easier to understand, the acting is better and it was easier to sympathise with the characters in that movie.
In Elephant it was different though. The acting was worse and the problems weren't as obvious which is why I couldn't quite sympathise with the characters since I didn't exactly know what they were going through.
The directing was amazing but the movie in general was really slow. Then when we came to the end I didn't find it as harsh and terrible as everyone else seems to think. Too much happened all at once that I found it unrealistic, it was a predictable ending where you'd expected exactly that ending from the very beginning and when it came you just felt emptiness. You didn't feel sorry for anyone, you were just happy that the movie's end was about to arrive soon...

Bastard out of Carolina

Bastard out of Carolina is a story about abuse and not being able to see what's just in front of you.
This is a loving story about a mother and a daughter, about the battle to show the love that you really feel in your heart and to feel such strong love for someone that you can't possibly fall out of it or possibly see the bad things that he's put the family through.
Jena Malone did a wonderful job as the role of Bone and Jennifer Jason Leigh was amazing as the mother, together they did a perfect bond that really made this movie to an experience worth remembering.

Love in the Time of Cholera
½

Love in the Time of Cholera was different. I liked the theme of the movie, the powerfulness of love and how love will forever stay with you and never be forgotten.
Although at the same time I found it unrealistic. Who falls in love with someone so deeply by just having seen a glimpse of them and then ends up writing one of the most fantastic love letters to this person when they haven't even shared a word? Who waits fifty-three years for someone that they've hardly even met? And who proposes to someone that is like a stranger to you?
I guess there is some logic in this somewhere but I just didn't get it. How come the only change of actor they made was for the role of Florentino Ariza and all the other characters got to keep the same actor as they grew older? How come the fathers in the movie looked to be the same age as their children? And why did the younger characters have grey hair when the characters that were older still had the same hair as they had in the beginning?
There are so many flaws in this movie that I don't even know where to begin. Maybe the director should've watched this movie before declaring it as finished and if he did and still couldn't find anything to change I don't really know what to say.
For some reason though I could still find myself to enjoy small parts of the movie, despite its many flaws. Although it was a bit too long, especially as not much really happened at all...

Did You Hear About the Morgans?
½

Did You Hear About the Morgans? was a cute and predictable romantic comedy where the theme is pretty much just like any other comedy but the plot and storyline was quite different and unique.
Not much happened, but at the same time really much happened. Storyline-wise there happened a lot, but after having watched the movie it felt like just the same thing happened all the time and never anything new. You knew exactly what would happen and exactly when and where but you still continued watching it so you could make sure that you were right.
Hugh Grant was funny as always with his witty British humour and Sarah Jessica Parker was okay as Meryl Morgan, but that was all this movie really was, okay.

The Tourist
The Tourist(2010)

I didn't find The Tourist as bad as everyone else seems to think it is at all. But then again, because everyone seems to have given it really bad reviews I'd expected for it to be rubbish and then ended up really appreciating it.
The beginning was a bit slow and didn't really keep your attention. Not really realising that they were speaking French at first I forgot to read the subtitles and missed a bit of what they said.
After a while I really started to get into the story though. Johnny Depp was funny with his facial expressions and his quick answers to things and Angelina Jolie did a brilliant British accent.
I started to get really engaged in what was happening after a while, wanting to know what would happen next. Although the ending should have been more memorable and the parts of the movie that were hard to understand should have been explained more, but other than that I found it rather entertaining and I found myself laughing a few times!

She's Out of My League
½

She's Out of My League was an okay comedy. It started off a bit too pathetic but then it managed to get better. The acting wasn't that great, not that it needed to be in a movie like this. Overall it was quite an entertaining movie, some unnecessary scenes but still an okay movie.

Frida
Frida(2002)
½

Frida was better than I'd expected for it to be.
The acting from Salma Hayek and Alfred Molina was amazing and the imagery was fantastic.
The whole movie just exuberated with magic and all the scenes were so wonderfully shot in a spectacular way using colours to fill our hearts with love. Although, on the other hand the movie was a bit too long and it took a bit too long for things to really get started.
It was a powerful movie with a lot of passion, but still not worth watching more than once!

Enigma
Enigma(2002)

Enigma wasn't quite as good as I'd hoped for.
It was confusing, it took an hour to even remotely enjoy the movie and even then it felt a bit dull. The storyline was a bit too vague, so vague in fact that I couldn't really comprehend what the storyline was or what the movie's purpose was.
The thing is that the movie was so slow and boring that when you found out the answers to all the clues I had lost the excitement inside of me. There was nothing left and I didn't really care, I just seemed to want the one hour and fifty-four minutes to end because I just couldn't see the point of this movie existing...
Having said that Kate Winslet was her excellent self as usual, but that is really the only thing to appreciate with this movie.

The Jacket
The Jacket(2005)

The Jacket is one of those movies that will confuse you, you won't get anything throughout the whole movie until the very end when you will have to solve the puzzle and put all the pieces together.
The Jacket is a movie where you don't really know which genre it fits into, you don't quite know the storyline until the end and it will keep you dazed and confused but at the same time entertained.
Having said that I thought Keira Knightley did an amazing American accent and I thought Adrien Brody suited his role perfectly.
They were the people who without a doubt made this movie-experience worthwhile!

Trucker
Trucker(2009)
½

The storyline of Trucker was remarkable. It had depth and sorrows and touched you so deeply that your whole heart started to tingle by the thought of it. A storyline like this can't possibly fail was my first thought, but I was wrong. Trucker had a lack of incredible acting abilities, and without any good acting the movie just isn't worth it. Without any good acting it feels fake, as if the manuscript is in the actors' hands and they're just reading from it.
The movie is so sad and deep that you need the tears and the feeling of sadness for it to be any good and a lot of it just felt fake.
The movie was also a bit slow and nothing much happened and when things all of a sudden started to happen and things started to progress, it was all of a sudden the end.
And the only feeling you have left is emptiness, the emptiness of your heart because it has left you with disappointment...

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

This Chronicles of Narnia saga wasn't quite as good as the first one but even better than the second. It was a real treat to see it in 3D and cousin Eustace just made the humour even better.
It wasn't quite the way I'd expected though, the storyline was a bit too short and it felt as if nothing much really happened. But it still managed to put a smile on my face after having been disappointed by the last movie that came out in the Chronicles of Narnia series!

Chatroom
Chatroom(2010)

Chatroom is a very different British movie that takes up subjects such as the internet and suicide. It's about revealing yourself too much to people you don't know and how the internet affects the rest of us.
This was a really well made movie, the chatrooms were put into rooms and everything that was written in the chatroom was acted out. It was a good idea and hard to understand at first but towards the end you really started to get into the whole concept of the movie and really enjoy it.
The acting was brilliant and the movie gradually grew better for every second until the very end when the whole movie just shook you to pieces by the amazing acting and the shockingly remarkable ending to a wonderful story!

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
½

I must say that this movie is a lot better than the second one, probably even better than the first.
The movie really did live up to its expectations!

The Twilight Saga: New Moon

This is the first movie that's based on a book that I've seen, where I actually prefer the book.
I read the first book after having seen the movie, not liking it one bit. As it wasn't at all like the movie that I loved so much. Then I set a goal for myself, saying that I should read the second book before the movie so I might not hate it as much, and ended up really enjoying it!
There were some things I really enjoyed about the movie, it was good acting even though at some parts you can't really see the love as much as you'd hoped.
I'd also hoped the ending wouldn't be as abrupt as it was, and some scenes you'd have a really hard time comprehending if you haven't read the book. But overall the movie is a great one, it's entertaining and will most certainly keep you hooked to the screen!

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a Swedish detective story. Noomi Rapace was an excellent actress and she made all of the scenes seem so real.
This one was the best out of the three, there's excitement from the very beginning and it really kept you hooked!

Keeping Mum
Keeping Mum(2006)
½

This was an okay movie. It was funny and entertaining whilst watching it but afterwards it will be forgotten.
You'll remember a few sequences and a few scenes but you won't remember enough to know if it was actually a good movie or not.

Easy A
Easy A(2010)

Easy A was a different type of chickflick that just made you want to see more and even after the end credits had rolled you wanted to know what would happen next.
The second last scene in the gym hall could've been deleted and I didn't really see the point of it or why it was even there. But other than that this was a fantastic chickflick. It wasn't like anything I've ever seen before.
This movie was true to earth. It is so easy to get wrapped in a lie and basically live in it until it's taken you too far and it was good to see a movie which discussed this subject and did something funny out of it.
This movie was witty and had pure humour all the way through. Definitely worth a watch!

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past is a story about second chances. It's a comedy about finding out who you really are and to win your heart back.
It was a little hard to get into it, but after a while it was actually worth watching.

The Next Three Days

The Next Three Days was a captivating story about fighting for independence and about wanting life to be the way it was before. It was an incredible movie. Some parts might have been unrealistic but I really don't care. Because this movie had so much excitement in it that it didn't really matter if it was realistic or not. .
I was on the edge of my seat until the very end. The ending was incredible. Some parts of the movie maybe was a bit slow and maybe it could've moved along faster but overall this was an amazing movie that made my heart beat faster until the end when it stopped before returning to its normal pace.
Overall this was an electrifying thriller that I highly recommend!

Alien
Alien(1979)
½

Having seen the second Alien movie before this one I must say that I was throroughly disappointed. The second one had a lot more action and excitement, it was a lot more creepy and a lot scarier.
This one was slow and weak and didn't leave me wanting to see more. Nothing much happened. You didn't see much that made you sit on the edge of your seat.
Although if you've seen this one and not the sequel, see it. Because the sequel to Alien will most certainly blow you away and keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.

Love and Other Drugs

Love and Other Drugs was a great movie. It started off a bit slow and you didn't really know where it was going but then it turned into remarkable. It was both sad and funny and a fine mixture between both.
I really enjoyed the movie, with its great soundtrack and the amazing acting from both Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Smart People
Smart People(2008)
½

What a great movie.
The soundtrack was amazing and Ellen Page did a great job with her witty humour! Definitely worth watching more than once!

Aliens
Aliens(1986)
½

What an incredible movie. The beginning was a little slow, but after a while it was so action-packed and tense that I couldn't find myself to move.
I was glued to the sofa, staring at the screen until the very end and even then it took me a while to realise how to use my legs.

The Loved Ones
½

The Loved Ones had tension to the power of a hundred.
It was actually a quite good film. It made you cringe and scream and close your eyes. It had tension and excitement and really kept you hooked until the very end.

4.3.2.1
4.3.2.1(2010)
½

4.3.2.1 was a different type of movie. I actually really liked the soundtrack, only a shame that all the songs had to end so abruptly. It was interesting to see one movie in four different point of views. Even though the part of all four best friends having such horrible days felt a bit unrealistic at times.

Imagine Me & You

I wouldn't say that Imagine Me & You is one of those typical gay movies. I wouldn't even go as far as to say that it is a gay movie at all. I'd rather say that it's a movie about unexpected love.
That it happens to be a love between two women is a whole other story. It's about love at first sight and the fact that two women fall for each other is more of a coincidence.
That's what I like about this movie. I really liked the chemistry between Rachel and Luce and throughout the movie I could really understand that they were falling for each other and why. But I could also feel chemistry between Rachel and Heck. So when watching the movie you didn't really know who you wanted her to end up with, but I personally thought that was a good thing. That you were on both sides, liking both couples.
I really enjoyed this movie. It was different and fun to be able to see a comedy that took up this subject for a change, it changed the whole idea in a way and made the movie really entertaining.
I also loved Piper Perabo's british accent, if you didn't know better you would've thought it was real.
Highly recommended!

The Last Exorcism

For some reason I tend to find movies less scary when they're actually made as a documentary.
I didn't find this movie scary at all, it took about half an hour for it to actually begin and when it actually did it just wasn't that good.
It's not as scary as everyone else seems to think it is.

The Way Back
The Way Back(2011)

The Way Back was a bit slow in the beginning and it took a while until the story really begun but I still really enjoyed it.
The acting from Saoirse Ronan was the movie's highlight though. Her accent was fantastic and she did a terrific job. The thing is that any useless movie will automatically become good with her in it, that's just how good she is.
This movie is highly recommended, although there's not much happening and there's pretty much only walking throughout the whole movie, it still kept me entertained.

Jackass: Number Two

I don't really know what to say to be honest.
It was digusting and grotesque and I can't see why people seriously would like to do all those things for fun.
It was so gross I couldn't even find it entertaining and it really just wasn't my type of humour either.

Full Frontal
Full Frontal(2002)

Full Frontal is probably one of the worst movies I've ever seen. There was no plot and nothing good about it. You couldn't even feel sad about the movie's sorrows because it was so badly made.
Throughout the whole movie I was hoping for it to end, and eventually it did. When a minute had passed I was already bored with it. This is not a movie to recommend, the movie will literally cause you to faint.

The Yellow Handkerchief
½

The Yellow Handkerchief is a road movie about three lost souls. About lost love and love trying to be found.
It wasn't quite as I'd expected, the sorrows didn't shine through the screen as much as I'd hoped.
But it was still an incredible movie, it was different which I liked. It had depth and I'm glad to have finally seen it.

Cracks
Cracks(2011)
½

Cracks was a different but good movie.
It was about secrets and lies, betrayal and taboo.
It still wasn't quite as I'd expected though. Throughout the whole movie I was waiting for some type of twist that never showed up.
I did enjoy it, but it could've been a lot better if there was something unexpected waiting at the end.

Frozen
Frozen(2010)
½

Frozen is probably one of the most abominable movies I've ever seen but at the same time it's one of the most amazing movies I've ever seen.
Imagine being stranded on a chairlift, the weather is freezing and it's a week until people are going to show up. Imagine sitting on the chairlift and thinking that there's a bigger possibility in surviving if you jump off it instead of sitting still. Imagine sitting there for a week in the cold with no one to call, nothing to drink or eat and nowhere to go, what do you do?
I thought this movie was amazing. I was so engaged, screaming to every single scene, shouting at the characters, hoping that they could hear me and that I could stop them from doing anything drastic.
I know that the last time a human being was killed by a wolf was around 1830, but it doesn't matter that some parts were unrealistic because it still felt so real when watching it. Everything felt so real, it felt so real that I could feel myself freezing by seeing all the snow. It felt like everything was happening to me.
It was an incredibly well made movie with fantastic tension that shook me up from the very beginning and kept me shaken up until long after the movie's end!

The Man in the Moon

The Man in the Moon is about falling for the wrong boy, about falling for someone who only has eyes for someone else. This was Reese Witherspoon's debut as an actress and still it ended up being her best movie. She shows an incredible talent in this movie. How you can see in her face what she's feeling and thinking. Her acting ability was astonishing at that age and it's only getting better! This is a drama with both sorrows and romance, it's spectacularly acted and kept me hooked from the first word of the movie until the end credits started to roll in the end.

In America
In America(2003)

So emotional!
Great acting though, especially from Sarah and Emma Bolger, who played Christy and Ariel in this movie, their appearences and acting was incredible. I really felt something for this emotional drama and it'll stay with me forever.

Jack the Bear

Terrific acting, I could never have believed that it would be this good!
It's also a miracle how Reese Witherspoon grew up from being a boys crush in this movie to be winning an oscar for playing June Carter in Walk the line.
Really enjoyed this movie, I was hooked to the screen during the whole movie!

Juno
Juno(2007)

Such a great movie, just couldn't help laughing.
It's quite terrific that the director managed to make this story line so hilarious, I really do hope that the movie aquires all the four oscars that it's nominated for!

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

When the movie first started I thought I was watching the wrong movie because it didn't start the way I'd expected at all.
Then because the idea is so unique and special I got a bit sad when it turned out that the story was read from a diary because that idea has been used so many times before.
But the fact that Brad Pitt was in it was certainly a plus and I managed to sit all the way through it despite it being 2 hours and 46 minutes long.
But it certainly was an entertainment and overall I really enjoyed it all the way through even though you do spend quite a long time during the movie just wishing that the real Brad Pitt would come on screen.

Cruel Intentions
½

Such an amazing film which I definitely recommend.
Reese Witherspoon played wonderfully and I loved every moment of this film. It's funny, sad and interesting all at the same time, and I don't know what more to say, a film for everyone to love.

Dedication
Dedication(2007)

The absolute beginning wasn't good at all, I was starting to wonder if I was watching the right movie.
It got better and better though, some parts were a bit boring and weird, and some were really good, but because of the storyline being quite complicating I can accept that.
But, despite all the negative things about this movie I still think it deserves three and a half stars.

Gracie
Gracie(2007)

Well acted and very entertaining.
Sad and worth watching...

Edward Scissorhands

So happy to have seen this movie and it's unbelievable how much imagination the director can have!
It's an unbelievable gripping movie and it really brought excitement into me, truly recommend it!

Fools Rush In

Really enjoyed this movie.
The acting was quite lousy although the humour was great. Salma Hayek was extraordinary!

The Accidental Husband
½

This is quite an entertaining romantic comedy about choices.
I actually quite enjoyed it, some parts were a bit silly, but some parts had me hooked to the screen!
It could be recommended, although it's not a movie I'd see more than once.

Volver
Volver(2006)

I can't say I'm that fond of international films where I can't comprehend the language, although on the other hand I found the storyline uncanny and eerie.
The storyline didn't make much sense at all whatsoever, the acting was spectacular, but the movie in itself needed some progress for me to fully enjoy it!

A Lot Like Love
½

It was a feel-good film, great acting and a cute friday's movie to watch!

50 First Dates
½

This movie isn't at all as good as you'd think. I didn't enjoy it very much at all, it only really makes you fall asleep...

Awake
Awake(2007)
½

Terrifically acted and a typical movie that you just have to watch until the end.
It's a breathtaking and hair-rising movie that I can certainly recommend.

Anywhere but Here

Good storyline, although not made in the way that I'd personally hoped for!

An Education
An Education(2009)

An Education is the story about falling in love. The story about giving up everything you believe in for love. For a charming, charismatic older guy who's anyway going to end up hurting you. An Education was one of those movies that just tend to glue you to the screen from start to finish. The amazing performances made me laugh, but at the same time kept me excited during the whole film. I would like to give critical acclaim to Carey Mulligan's participation in this movie, the actress who's never really caught my eye before, and has now managed to get herself an oscar nomination for the role of Jenny. Jenny is the girl who does everything to get a degree at Oxford University, until a certain man comes along. The man you wish to love, the man who gives you ten birthday presents when all your parents gave you was a latin dictionary, the man who takes you to Paris, the man who takes you to concerts and auctions. But, despite all that, you still can't help hating him. I would also like to praise Peter Sarsgaard, Alfred Molina and Emma Thompson who played wondrously as the older guy who tries to seduce a sixteen-year-old school girl, the humorous but strict father and the principal, who's trying hard to get Jenny not to commit a mistake. Everyone who's a part of this movie made it to a magical experience, everyone did a fabulous job at making An Education to something exquisite and sensational. This was yet another dazzling British movie directed by the Danish Lone Scherfig. She made this movie to something extra, she made this educational movie based on London in the 1960s extraordinary. She should also be praised, because she's made me come to terms with life. You should do what you think is fun, as long as you think it through first.

Twilight
Twilight(2008)

I saw this movie at the cinema, not having read the book and was happily surprised. I didn't know what to expect and ended up really enjoying it. Although I wouldn't say it's as good as everyone says it is, I don't find anything remotely unique about it. The movie might have some incredible punchlines and it might be entertaining but I wouldn't make a fuss of it.
I particularly liked Billy Burke's role in the movie, the way they've changed his boring and unnecessary character from the book into someone with a great sense of humour!

The Forgotten

I really enjoyed this movie. It wasn't quite the way I expected but it was incredibly entertaining.
It kept me hooked from start to finish and it even made me jump a few times, despite the fact that it wasn't even scary.
The acting was terrific and it really made me believe in the characters. A very enjoyable movie!

Mona Lisa Smile
½

I must admit that I hadn't expected to love the movie as much as i did.
The movie wasn't as dressy, old-fashioned and girly that I'd thought it would be at first, it actually ended up being quite an entertainment.
The acting was great and the list was covered with a spectacular cast which certainly makes this movie worth every second of it!

Sky High
Sky High(2005)
½

This movie was a lot better than I could ever have expected, it had depth, romance, humour and oceans of excitement.
This one kept me hooked from start to finish and the acting was most certainly astonishing!

Read it and Weep

Never seen any movie quite like this, it was unique, funny and most certainly enjoyable.
Hard to take your eyes away from it, I definitely stayed glued throughout the whole movie!

The Ultimate Christmas Present
½

This is a classic!
Entertaining from absolute start until finish.

A Ring of Endless Light

I'm not a person who's a fan of animals and I usually don't like movies about animals but this one was different. It had humour, excitement, sorrow and romance. It was interesting and unique which made me actually enjoy it, from the absolute start until finish.

Tiger Cruise
Tiger Cruise(2004)

I don't really know what to say about this one. It was unique and weird at the same time. It was a bit complicated but still entertaining.

The Time Traveler's Wife

I actually really enjoyed this movie. I liked the fact that it was complicated and that you have to look closely at the screen and be engaged to it to be able to comprehend the happening.
I thought the chemistry between Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana was okay, they did a good job and made this complex storyline entertaining all the way through.

500 Days of Summer

This isn't the usual type of love story, or is it even a love story?
I liked the movie, it was unique and well made. It's romantic and it's funny, but is it a romantic comedy? I wouldn't say it is because this movie breaks all the rules.
I liked the way it was different, the way it wasn't like all the other movies I've seen.
It didn't start the way I'd expected and it certainly didn't end with the typical hollywood-movie ending.
That's why I like this movie, that's why it makes my whole heart tingle, because it's different and because the american directors have learnt to break the rules once and again!

Georgia Rule
Georgia Rule(2007)

When I saw in Sweden that the movie was from 15 I didn't really know what to expect, especially as Things we Lost in the Fire happens to be from 7 in Sweden.
I must say that from watching the trailer I thought I'd really enjoy the movie but the thing is that the only good scenes from the movie was the ones in the trailer.
It really wasn't my thing, it was good to see something unique and different but I don't think it's a movie I'd see more than once.

Our Lips Are Sealed
½

Honestly, don't know what to say about this film.
Became better towards the end but I know that if I saw the film on tv from the beginning I'd probably skip channel, it's a bit weird and not as funny as it says that it's gonna be.

Serendipity
Serendipity(2001)
½

This is the story about fate and destiny.
I actually really enjoyed this movie because even though you can clearly see the ending in front of you at the beginning you'll watch until the end anyway.

Things We Lost in the Fire
½

A movie that will stay with me forever.
The acting from Halle Berry and Benicio Del Toro was spectacular.
The plot was incredible, terrific music to go with the scenes and a tearjerker story line. Be prepared to cry, and be prepared to not regretting seeing it...

Love and Other Disasters
½

Brittany Murphy's acting and brittish accent was very credible in the romantic drama Love and Other Disasters about jumping to confusions.
Despite the fact that we've probably seen the same storyline on-screen a thousands of times before it was hard to look away from the screen. It was humurous, fascinating and exciting all the way through, you probably already knew how it would end from the absolute beginning but that didn't prevent me from watching it to see if I happened to be right!

Glowing Stars (I taket lyser stjärnorna)

The movie was actually just as good as the book.
The movie is about having to cope with your own mum having cancer, but also about getting new friends, fitting in a new crowd and doing things you never imagined doing before.
It's a sad but realistic story about life, maybe a hard one, but a life all the same...

Scream 2
Scream 2(1997)

I'm probably the only person in the whole universe who enjoyed this one more than the first, but I did.
The only problem though was that the person who happened to be the murderer was the person at least I'd expected it to be.
Some parts were a bit unrealistic and weird but otherwise it was an entertainment!

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
½

Definitely not the best movie in the series, although the movies do tend to get a lot funnier.
I found myself laughing loads, and hooked to the screen throughout the whole film despite it being a long one!

Little Fish
Little Fish(2006)
½

The acting was fabulous and the storyline was amazing but the majority of the movie was such a slow tempo and I had a really hard time keeping my eyes focused on the movie during the 1 hour and 49 minutes it was running because there wasn't that much happening really and therefore I had a hard time comprehending the movie at all!

Serving Sara
Serving Sara(2002)
½

The beginning was pathetically boring and clumpily funny which I personally don't think is funny at all!
Towards the middle, or right before the middle, the movie became better and it became more worthwhile but because of the beginning I don't think it's worthy of that many stars.

The Upside of Anger
½

I thought that Joan Allen's and Kevin Costner's acting in this movie was lousy but the appearences from Erika Christensen, Alicia Witt, Keri Russell and Evan Rachel Wood was brilliant!

December Boys

An extremely gripping and touching story.
The acting was amazing and the soundtrack was brilliant and it almost made me shed a tear.

Confessions of a Sociopathic Social Climber
½

The first 45 minutes of the movie were so boring that it was hard to keep an eye on the movie, the rest was better but as I almost had to force myself into watching it until the end it wasn't such a good movie for me.

Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump(1994)

Well, I probably missed thirty minutes of this movie because of a dirty disc but I saw enough to know that it was worth all the six oscars that it was awarded.

Conversations With Other Women
½

Can't say I enjoyed this movie that much.
The dual-frame was annoying, even though it was a superb idea and the whole imagination around the whole movie, the story, the dual-frame and how it all worked towards the end was spectacular it still wasn't quite right for me.
I felt like I had to force myself into watching it, the majority of the time it bored me out and the rest of the time it mainly confused me.
The movie is most certainly unique in that way so I'd recommend it if you're looking for something different but if you're looking for something wonderful that will give you a big fat smile on your face and leave you overjoyed for eternally many reasons I wouldn't recommend it.

What Happens in Vegas

It's a very funny and entertaining movie, don't know if I can say or give much more than that.
It's entertaining even though it gets a bit too weird at times!

Tuck Everlasting

A remarkable and magical tale, although I thought the movie was a bit too short and scenes were happening a bit too fast.
The movie had hardly gone half an hour and already the characters were in love and knew the secret and all, I felt they could've waited with that for a bit but it might have something to do with the length of the movie.
This is a storyline that should've been two hours long and not one hour and twenty-nine minutes.
But despite that it was spectacularly acted and directed and a magical tale I don't regret watching!

The Mothman Prophecies

The really creepy thing about this movie is that it's actually based on a true story.
It was well acted and the filmography was spectacular but it was only towards the end I started to feel the excitement.
Too sad that the majority of the movie made me tired of boredom, if the whole movie had been like the end it would all have been a success.

Holiday in the Sun
½

It's a really good movie until about halfway through and then it's just not worth watching anymore.

Billboard Dad

Surprisingly good considering Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen being in it.

Getting There

Even though I'm not a fan of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, this is still their worst movie. It was annoying and I just wish I could scream at them and they would hear me!

The Challenge

Really funny and entertaining!

Switching Goals

Some parts are surprisingly good in this movie.

Mr. Jones
Mr. Jones(1993)

Very sad and spectacularly acted. It was a wonderful storyline that really captured me.
This is something extraordinarily made and incredibly well thought and I can certainly recommend it.
Started a bit weird and ended with terrific!

The Baby-Sitters Club
½

It's an entertaining family movie but not too much more than that.
It's an entertainment although once is probably enough to watch this movie.

Jumper
Jumper(2008)
½

Terrific acting and a great idea. Really enjoyed it.

Life as a House
½

Hayden Christensen certainly is and looks more different in this movie, it's even hard to recognise him.
I really enjoyed the movie, it was well acted and incredibly gripping, sad and touching.
It's certainly recommended.

Fierce People
½

I mainly rented this movie because Kristen Stewart was in it but turned out to enjoy it more than expected.
I thought it would be a bit too weird for me at first but all the spectacular acting certainly makes this movie worthwhile.

For Love of the Game
½

Wonderful acting and incredible music to go with it too.
Sometimes it was a bit complicating to understand whether it was five years previously or present time but I really enjoyed it and it made me laugh loads.
A terrific movie that I can most certainly recommend and see again.

Teen Wolf
Teen Wolf(1985)

I actually found this movie very funny and entertaining, it was a classic in the mid-eighties and pretty unusual too.
A good story and terrific acting, a movie which I recommend to many people who might fancy an unusual entertaining mindboggling comedy!

Romance & Cigarettes
½

This is such a weird movie but honestly, it's so weird so the only thing you do is laugh, it's so humouristic.
Just to end this review I'm gonna say that those who fancies watching a weird movie where half of it is drama and half is a weird take of a musical it's certainly recommended, probably one of the most weirdest movies I've ever watched, but then again it's probably the movie that's actually made me laugh the most so I don't think you should waste all of your laughters on this movie alone...watch it with a few friends.

Scream
Scream(1996)

This movie really did scare me silly, even though I didn't get nightmares I think others could, depends how easy you get nightmares.
I anyway thought it was spectacularly acted and even though some scenes weren't that well thought I really enjoyed watching the movie!

August Rush
August Rush(2007)
½

A very beautiful movie, well acted and beautifully made, even though the ending dissappointed me a little!

Enduring Love
½

Not as good as I'd hoped, I found Rhys Ifans really annoying but you were probably supposed to so that should be a good thing then. But I found the dialogue a bit boring and even though the movie started with a dramatic accident I felt that I never really came into the story.

Martian Child

A really funny and well acted story, made me laugh loads to be honest. The storyline was very well thought!

Sex and the City
½

Better than I'd expected it to be, I was worried that it'll just be dialogue and no happening but the movie actually made me laugh quite a few times which proves me wrong, it does have happening and it didn't bore me out even though it is 2 hours and 25 minutes long.

Definitely, Maybe

The only movie I had watched with Ryan Reynolds before this one was Just Friends and I must say that I really didn't enjoy that movie, on the other hand this movie had a wonderful storyline, spectacular acting and then the fact that they could put in an unexpected ending, which wasn't expected as it was an american romantic comedy, was completely fascinating!
I'm glad that it took ages until you got to know who the real mum was and I liked the fact that all the girls could be reasonable mothers so there wasn't really an obvious answer.

Dan in Real Life
½

A wonderfully sad but still humorously hilarious movie both about love and finding out who you really are.
I thought Steve Carell did a great job, he really made the whole movie unique and funny and it really kept me hooked from start to finish and really put a smile on my face!

Little Children

This is a really good film but still not exactly how I expected it to be. But there were great actors and actresses in it, they all played very well and Kate Winslet was great in it, so humungously sad she didn't win that oscar!

No Reservations

One of the most powerful and beautiful movies I've ever seen.
This movie's both sad and funny, it definitely made me laugh and I know that if I could cry to movies (which I sadly can't) I know that this movie would've made me cry too.
Such a movie with so spectacular actors, a terrific storyline that both makes you smile and makes you sad, and a movie that just makes you happy in all parts of your body from actual start to finish really should be praised!

Brokeback Mountain

Well acted but still a bit complicating, the photography annoyed me, I didn't like how they changed scenes so quickly, how he in one scene was lying crying and in the next he was suddenly married, what happened there in between?

Quinceañera
Quinceañera(2006)

Even though I didn't get a thing during the scenes when they were speaking Spanish, it was still a well acted movie and quite entertaining.

As Good as It Gets
½

Very well acted with a great cast, keeps you entertained throughout the whole movie despite it being quite a long one...

The Gift
The Gift(2000)

Spectacular acting, astonishing storyline and a great cast, they all put in endearing performances and I highly recommend it!

High School Musical 3: Senior Year

Well, didn't really like the first one, second one was better than the first and the third one was even better than the second one.
If you even liked the first one this one certainly is recommended and if you didn't like the first one the second and third is recommended too because they do get better!

Twilight
Twilight(1998)
½

Spectacular acting...
Paul Newman, Susan Sarandon, Gene Hackman, Reese Witherspoon and James Garner makes this movie exciting and thrilling.
When I came towards the end of the movie I almost forgot what it was that I was watching and when I was thinking what this movie was about I didn't really know the answer but I'm not sure if that's because I liked it or because it's weird.
I still recommend it as it does have incredible acting and is directed in a very exciting way!

Othello
Othello(1995)
½

Great acting and it's good that they followed almost the whole script of the play!

Bring It On
Bring It On(2000)
½

Funny, enjoyable!

This Is England
½

Better than what I could've imagined, spectacular acting which won't be forgotten in a hurry!

Catch Me If You Can
½

Great acting and kept me hooked from start to finish!

A Beautiful Mind

Spectacular acting and the fact that it's based on a true story just makes the movie even more terrific.
A movie which I really enjoyed and which I can highly recommend.

Just Like Heaven

Love this movie, it's a movie with a great soundtrack, fabulous acting and a very well made storyline. It's a movie which put a smile on my face after watching it and made my whole heart beat faster of merriment.

The Thomas Crown Affair

It was quite good whilst watching it but still easily forgotten!

After the Sunset
½

Better than what you could imagine!

The Pursuit of Happyness
½

Better than what I could've imagined, terrific acting and a great story line!

Little Nicky
Little Nicky(2000)
½

A true individual, I really liked the unique story line, and Reese Witherspoon was so different in it, there was also an outstanding cast, and it's weird how all these terrific people chose to play in this very crazy but funny movie.
Adam Sandler's weird mouth shape and his way of talking did get a bit annoying though, but it's still a good movie which is guarenteed to make you laugh!

My Best Friend's Wedding
½

This was an okay movie to watch, but maybe not one to watch too many times!

The Princess Diaries
½

Really funny and well acted, can't believe I just realised a few weeks ago that it's Mandy Moore who plays Lana, must be blind, but it's good! Funny!

It Takes Two
It Takes Two(1995)
½

It was a bit entertaining, and a bit childish as well!

Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
½

I didn't see what was so funny with this movie, didn't laugh at all. Not my type of movie.

The Good Girl
½

Honestly, didn't see what The good girl came from, should be the bad girl or something but otherwise it was good, great acting and a good story line.

The Importance of Being Earnest
½

Great performances from all the actors Rupert Evere
