Movie Review: Oblivion

mrobtcI went to see Oblivion last weekend for its been a while since something good arrived to the big screens. I didn’t think feel overly excited after watching the trailer, it looked like another post-apocalyptic movie where the survivors roam the earth fending off yet to be found dangers. But it was Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman starring so why not?

To my surprise I enjoyed the movie a lot. True it was too long and stretched unnecessarily but by the time it ends you realise the point of stalling in the beginning. I loved the twist in the tale and didn’t see it coming at all which made all the difference but when it comes it means there is still a lot to happen yet at the movie. I didn’t care for the parts that were cut off in the name of the censorship, especially the conversation in the final show down which should allow you to understand the point in all this. All in all, its a good movie and to my surprise I had a good time watching it.

The movie is not for everybody, a lot of people were leaving the movie especially -and thankfully- the noisy couple sitting right beside me and trying to decipher every scene loudly as they were munching disgustingly on their nachos. It is not an earth shattering movie per say but it’s one you’d want to watch again for sure and a space on my DVD shelves is already awaiting its release.

Movie Review: Olympus Has Fallen

mrohfThe movie was released in Kuwait on the 21st of March, a day before it was released in the USA and as soon as I saw the actors and the trailers I knew I was in for a good movie so I couldn’t wait to see it. I saw it Thursday night and I have to say I enjoyed it very very much.

Aaron Eckhart plays the president of the United States who one day finds himself a hostage in the White House and its up to the White House speaker Morgan Freeman to handle the terrorists demands and lead the country through the crisis while an ex-president guard, Gerard Butler, tries to save the day and rescue the president.

The movie is pure action with lots of bullets and is quite bloody. For some reason many scenes in Kuwait, dialogue scenes that explains the characters behavior and the story itself were cut off. I didn’t care for that at all. Overall, its very good and I can’t wait for it to be released on DVD so I can watch it again and add it to my DVD shelf. A must watch for sure.

Movie Review: Apartment1303

Going to this movie was an impulse decision. It was the last chance to do something before the end of the February holidays and that movie was available. How bad can it be? A 16+ horror movie, interesting poster, popcorn, diet coke, and no kids in the theatre. A girl who has issues with her mother movies into a haunted apartment 1303 and then the horror begins.

First, the acting is bad. The actors, all of them, are having this prolonged useless conversations that seem really fake. The girl who moves into the apartment can’t convice you that she is scared, she is acting scared yes, but badly. There isn’t much of a story going on either. She lays in bed, surrounded by Ikea merchandise, and the ghost which also isn’t scary hits her and screams at her and whats not. Yada yada yada.

The bad thing about this movie is that its suppoed to be a remake of a Japanese horror movie by the same Japanese guy who made the original Japanese version of The Grudge. When I red the Japanese story it was really good and completely different with at least a story line aside! This remake? In this day and age? Why remake something and remake it badly? And market it for us in 3D format so we’d pay extra and feel absolutely zero difference except perhaps the feelings of boredom at the apartment where time stands still while the ghost almost actually begs people to leave and they just won’t go?

The movie is a flop, period. It should have been one of those tacky straight to video movies, not a 3D remake of a Japanese one shown in theatres. Unless you want to waste your money, don’t bother going to this movie. As for the DVD shelf? I think I’ll be getting the Japanese version and not the “3D remake”.
