The Elfkins (2019)
7/10
Cute animation with a feel-good story
10 June 2020
I decided to write a review about this animation because there is none at the moment. The animation ''The Elfkins'' was pleasant to watch and very cute. The dialogue and scenes are not overfilled with jokes and try to be funny scenes. The story mainly teaches about morality and about the feeling of being accepted and loved no matter how small or big you are. Bad side is that the story is very predictable and it seems like they haven't spent much time writing it. Overall it's worth watching it, if you are watching with your kids.

Tampopo (1985)
9/10
Ode to the food and Hymn to art of making ramen.
4 May 2019
Pure and hidden gem of cinematography. The movie was very refreshing to watch. I haven't expected to make me laugh so many times. The humor in the movie is profound but to understand it fully it needs a little bit of general knowledge about Asian culture and cuisine. The movie has many of short side stories. For me all of them were very funny and slightly quirky. Love and passion for the food is apparent trough out the whole movie. The screenplay was brilliantly written. There are many characters in the movie and they are all diverse and interesting in their own way. Hat down to Mr.Juzo Itami. He made something that is one of a kind.Recommended to all gourmets, lovers of Japanese culture and of course a good and unique movies.

The Take (2009)
8/10
Tom Hardy takes this show on the another level
4 May 2019
This mini series are well done and strangely not that popular. It is dark and brutal crime story . Main character (Tom Hardy) as you can see from the start is a psychopathic person, so he is doing what psychopath usually does and that is hard to watch and swallow. Tom Hardy is acting brilliantly that kind of a person.By the time I finished watching the show I was completely appalled and disgusted by the character he was portraying. Rest of the actors has done a good job as well. Highly recommended, but be aware what kind of feelings this TV show might give you.

Comic that came to life trough beautiful animation
19 April 2019
Wonderful animated movie that gave me the same old feeling that I had as a kid while I was reading comics. Haven't expected at all to be this good. It is very funny as it made me laugh many times. All the characters are very well depicted. They look so natural and full of life. Story was as well very interesting. Recommended to all Asterix and Obelix fans. For new and old. I am hoping for more sequels in the future.

Beautiful and true story that offers profound insights...
18 April 2019
Beautiful story that offers profound insight into the true nature of written word,friendship,human mind,forgiveness and redemption. All of the actors contribute to the movie with an outstanding acting. On screen Mel Gibson and Sean Penn show strong chemistry between them making the movie even more compelling. The movie was based on the book ,,The Surgeon of Crowthorne'' by Simon Winchester. I think that it wasn't an easy task to put it on the screen and director has done a very good job. Overall the movie seemed like it was strongly influenced by Mel Gibson.Recommended for movie lovers.

Purgatory (1999 TV Movie)
7/10
Mainly for western movie lovers, but it is still enjoyable if you are able to overlook the flaws.
1 April 2019
Purgatory is not the type of western movie that you see every day. It is mixed with fantasy. Story on its own had a great potential, but for me it was poorly executed. The title of the movie is reviling the most and interesting important part of the story. Moral of the story is little bit shallow. Sam Shepard for me is the only one with good acting. Movie overall has a lot of flaws, but it still doesn't stops you to enjoy in it. It was targeted for real western lovers, and for them movie even with all the flaws its perfect.

Burning (2018)
8/10
The story that leaves you with a lot of questions
27 March 2019
Burning is an excellent psychological thriller with the veil of mystery around it. The movie that intrigues you and leaves you with a lot of questions to ask yourself why and to give it a try to connect the small pieces of mosaic. The more you think about the story and dialogs more questions starts to go on surface. Many of them don't have definite answer. It leaves a lot of space for imagination and analysis. It is a great study of characters. Atmosphere in the movie is dark with a lot of suspense. Acting and direction was on the spot. But the story is the one that is really unique. I haven't read the short story of Murakami ,,Burning Barn'', but now I am more than interested. I think that the movie is worth watching more times in order to catch all the small details that you maybe missed when you watched first time.Recommended for the people with more time,patience and with the tendency to analyze.

Gifted (2017)
7/10
Movie that is the gift which makes you smile from within
25 March 2019
Gifted is an enjoyable movie to watch. Great connection between the actors which provides very nice atmosphere, good script, great acting from the 10 year old actress Mckenna Grace. The reasons i haven't rated it higher is the story on its own and acting from Chris Evans. Story had some holes and overall for me it seems like it wasn't invested lot of time and will to make the story more original. Chris Evans acting seems little bit blunt at some moments and his acting is really for me just decent. Good enough so is not affecting a lot the movie and the atmosphere. He is likable as always but he could contribute more with acting.
