Deadly Class (2018)
As far as comic series turned movies go Deadly school is top drawer. Think of it as Sin City for post-adolescents. Violence, destitution, drugs and a pinch of sensitivity and a quest for true love. Nice cast, good direction, intermingling with real and comic in the vein o Sin City. Very Enjoyable!!!
The Honourable Woman (2014)
Excellent spy series!! Top performances, top plot, top dialogues, nice build up. Quality all the way!!! Top tier!!!
Four Brothers (2005)
Took me by surprise!!!
I've always liked action movies with Mark Wahlberg!! This guy brings to his characters a down to earth, funny, essentially good Al though on the wrong side of the law. This one is one of better movies. The story is simple but great and the show steal-er is the hilarious dynamic between the brothers. Escapist action movie of considerable depth. Do not pass it by!!!
The Cuba Libre Story (2016)
A very interesting documentary, well researched and rather seamlessly delivered!!
Fire with Fire (2012)
Average but certainly not bad!!
This is certainly not a movie to write home about. That said, I find it to be a decent action, one against all movie. D'Onofrio makes for a great villain and the cast is sympathetic. Action scenes are OK, Willis is dead cool. Nice entertainment!!!
Excellent natural disaster movie, at least on a par with its American counterparts. Understandably, it was a smash hit in Norway. The natural disaster it predicts is within the realms of possibility. Something, quite worse than thathat hit Alaska in 1958.
Poirot: Five Little Pigs (2003)
One of the best Poirot stories splendidly adapted!!!! Eric Satie's gnosiennes provided a most fitting musical background to the events unfolding. Brilliant!!!
Mar de plástico (2015)
Fine, but not great, on many levels!!!
A totally likable police series from a country that has developed a tradition in the genre. Nice story, nice characters (a little too histrionic for my taste maybe), nice if slightly too long unravelling of the plot. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable-but not a great-series.
Eteros ego (2019)
At long last!!!
At long last a Greek crime movie which is at least on a par with its foreign counterparts. Good story, realistic depiction of crimes, atmosperic music, good pace. For someone who has been waiting for such a development for almost a lifetime(since the 90's Greek series "The 11th commandement") it was thrilling to watch!!!
A quiet triumph. Brilliant and superior remake of a Christie classic!! !!
I can unreservedly say that the recent version is superior to the older movie with Albert Finney. That is not to say that the classic version was a bad film to begin with. As had been the tradition in the past it had star-studed cast. Ingrid Bergman was even nominated for an oscar for her performance. Albert Finney was OK if a little bit over the top.
The new film has only Barbara Hersey and Jessica Chastain and of course David Suchet as top tier stars yet it is a wonder of atmoshere, pace and dark undertones. Suchet's performance is among his best as Poirot. He conveys perfectly the ambivalence between his utter dislike for the victim and the evil he represents and his staunt objection to, however rightfully, taking the law into one's hands. He comprehends, not without sadness, that justice is not always served. Through his mesmerising performance the film acquires more gravitas. As usual all production point are faultless as is the representation of the 30's. Delightful and edifying movie!!!
Poirot: Evil Under the Sun (2001)
There is evil always under the sun!!
This Suchet edition is excellent in spite of the lack of an all-star cast or a cosmopolitan Adriatic background.
Ustinov's movies habitually aim for grandeur and glitz (even in the delightful way Ustinow imposes his own flamboyant personality and comic improvisations on the role);. Often this happens at the cost of staying faithful to the book. The current production has it all in perfect balance. Suchet is, as always, impeccable and easily the living embodiment of Christie's creation. The production is suitably lavish. Japp, Hastings, Miss Lemon and all the secondary roles are certainly up to the task.
Highly recommended from a life long Christie fan to like-minded Christie fans!?!
Poirot: Death on the Nile (2004)
This rendition is much more faithful to Agatha Christie'S book than the larger than life 1974 Production. There in lies its strength but, may I say, its weakness as well. Where in almost all circumstances David Suchet is super and the absolute Poirot, Peter Ustinov's delectably idiosyncratic Poirot impression the all-Star cast of the old movie, its unforgettable music score provided it with an almost mythical aura that simply cannot be surpassed. Consequently, the new Death on the Nile is a better Agatha Christie installment but a lesser movie as a whole.
The Old Guard (2020)
Thotoughly enjoyable film with an original idea, fine action scenes, interesting plot. Perfect entertsinment!!!
A delightful action,science-fiction film which toys with the idea of how our capacities as humqn beings would develop if tgere was a way to use the full capacity of our mind instead of the 10% approximately we currently use.I found both the premise and the execution rather delightful.Certainly reconnended despite its frequent hyperboles!!!
The Bourne Identity (2002)
The beginning of the best modern spy saga!!
Starting with this amazing,suspenseful acion spy movie the best modern spy saga was created.Matt Damon is totally believable as a gifted soldier with amnesia.All action and violence scenes are realistic and amazing.A great film on every level!!!!
A very likeable fictional representation of how Agatha Christie met her second husband to be in the context of a murder investigation at a dig in Iraq.All the elements that make her mysteries such perennialy enjoyable readings are here in spades.A fine effort!!!
An eminently watchable movie mainly because of strong performances by Ethan Hawke and Mark Strong.The absurd element is present in the movie as well as measure of humour not entirely suited to a hostage situation.Who knows??It might have happened like that.
Whether it's the non-linear storytelling,the technical mastery,the music or the subject per se I cannot tell.The fact remains,in my opinion,that this is an original approach to a war movie,and it works out splendidly as such.Thankfully I've never been in a war but it almost goes without saying that when survival comes into play,dog eats dog mentalities,fear and agony are par for the course.The film brilliantly portays these predominant emotions and to its credit doesn't once become melodramatic.It has the detached,realistic feeling of a documentary without,even remotely, being one!!!!
Swing Away (2016)
A decent,fun to watch family movie.Nothing we haven't seen before,follows all the norms faithfully and in the end leaves you with a sweet taste!!!!
