Box (2008)

Box (2008)

Yet another detective drama. It all starts with police bursting into an apartment, bodies strewn on the ground, guns, blood, uncertain circumstances. After that, ninety percent of the movie is staged in the questioning room, where two suspects are being questioned. One of them seems like a nice person, the other seems like your typical criminal, dishonest and weak.

As they are being interrogated they get flashbacks to what happened earlier, the same events play again and again with different sequences of events. But everything isn't as easy as it seems, the plot thickens, more secrets unravel and the end invites you to a nice surprise. Starts off pretty boring, but after a while the suspense increases and you start understanding that it's not as easy as it seems. Good actors, good filming and a nice play with different colors in certain events. Great movie! If you haven't seen it, I recommend you do so.

Transformers (2007)

Transformers (2007)

There is this cube. Nobody knows where it comes from, all they know is that it was the object used to fill the world with life. For a moment everyone lived in peace, but like all powerful items some wanted it for evil, some wanted it for good, and thus the war began. Then the cube was lost, and where did it land? Earth.

Movie starts nicely with a digitally animated object floating around while a deep voice tells us this story. Then the action starts. It's the story of a boy, a girl, and two alien forces struggling over control. I wasn't expecting much when I watched this movie. Basically everyone I know has been telling me that it's just full of crap, but I haven't seen anything transformer-related before this, except for toy figures in the stores. I guess that lets me build a different standalone perspective, not taking into consideration any of the previous episodes or movies that have been made, if there have been any made, I have no idea. It's by far the best digitally animated film I've seen. The storyline is a unique one, the heroes are heroic, the villains are bad, the boundaries are clear, and everything goes as it's expected to. Real film and digitally animated monsters blend in perfectly. The angles of filming are great, the camera changes are great, everything just looks perfect.

Lots of action, lots of variation, great music and characters with clearly defined personalities. The transformations and modern technologies displayed in the movie look pretty amazing, and the details even in the most chaotic atmospheres are fantastic. Even with the robots flying through office buildings you see the people running around inside, moving realistically, running for cover. Explosions are well-made, everything sounds realistic, everything looks realistic. It's a alternative vision of this world. The storyline is fast-paced, filled with both comedy, action, drama and romance. Everything looks flawless. I don't want to hype this up too much or you'll be disappointed if you watch it yourself, so let me just conclude the summary here. If you haven't seen it already, I recommend it. It has everything a great action movie needs, and a lot more.

And I haven't even mentioned the comical elements. The main character is a funny guy. The parents are typical parents. The robots have their own awkward traits. The script is just as good as the filmography is. You get to see a lot of nice cars, too. Personally though, I actually liked the old broken up Camero better than the new one. I like old cars. Anyway, I don't think I need to elaborate on details, just go watch it if you haven't.

Planet Terror (2008)

A friggin masterpiece. Great actors (famous, good), great characters (unique, defined), great action (bloody, explosive), great plot (crazy, detailed), great colors (gritty, old), great filming (creative, stable), great music (atmospheric, timely), great twists (expected, unexpected)...everything is just perfect. Need I say more? If you like action, go watch it.

Rocky 2 (1979)

Rocky 2 (1979)

The legend is back, this time in a battle against the champion Apollo Creed. Sylvester Stallone plays his roll as Italian great, with a good accent and the perfect attitude. Seems like his life is filled with many hardships though, and he faces many different troubles on his journey towards the king title. Very emotional, with grand musical input and mixed events and a stunning last battle. Rocky is a lovable character, and the movie, though without much action or artistic filming, easily captures your attention. A great movie considering how old it is.

Warriors Of Heaven & Earth (2003)

Warriors Of Heaven & Earth (2003)

A nice Asian fictional adventure. Follow the journey of the small group of unlikely warriors sent on a journey to protect a Buddhist and her collection of scrolls. They are family, friends and enemy, all with defined sets of personalties and values. During the way things get out of hand and they have to fight a large band of turks. They all fall, slowly, one by one as they get closer to their destination. Great filming, with decent special effects and varied events. The plot is intense, long, and dramatical. Not anything out of the ordinary, but a good movie indeed. I recommend it.

Beowolf (2007)

Beowolf (2007)

A fairytale for grownups, animated with the most amazing digital animation techniques up to date, at times it looks almost real. The story is a good one, something taken out of ancient adventurous chronicles, a mixture of vikings and pre-medieval madness. Great storyline, with a little bit of everything : Adventure, Drama, Romance. The main character is a real hero, courageous and undefeatable, and the plot takes place beside the ocean, where monsters and dragons roam. It's not one of the best movies I've seen, and i think it's highly overrated, but it was an interesting watch. Very different from all other movies this year. If you like fiction and adventure, watch it.

 rated 2/5: decent
