Some journeys take us far from home.
Some adventures lead us to our destiny.

Product Image: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
My rating: 3 out of 5

Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy are deported from London to the house of an eccentric professor during World War II. They find life in the house extremely dull, until Lucy discovers a wardrobe that leads to a magical world called Narnia, where animals can talk and all are ruled over by the wise and benevolent lion Aslan. The others don’t believe her at first, but soon all of them go through the wardrobe and discover all is not well in Narnia. The land is being kept in a perpetual winter by the evil White Witch, Jadis, who turns anyone who doesn’t obey her into stone. The children join Aslan and the animals loyal to him in an attempt to vanquish Jadis.

Har läst några av böckerna för länge sedan och sett den gamla filmen. Mindes inte allt som skulle ske, men en del kom tillbaka allt eftersom. Tycker inte filmen var så speciell, en hel del dåliga effekter vilket jag inte var beredd på. Men som barnfilm tror jag den är riktigt bra.

All That Stands Between Light And Darkness Is The Night Watch.

My rating: 2 out of 5

Among normal humans live the “Others” possessing various supernatural powers. They are divided up into the forces of light and the forces of the dark, who signed a truce several centuries ago to end a devastating battle. Ever since, the forces of light govern the day while the night belongs to their dark opponents. In modern day Moscow the dark Others actually roam the night as vampires while a “Night Watch” of light forces, among them Anton, the movie’s protagonist, try to control them and limit their outrage.

Trodde denna skulle vara riktigt bra efter allt man hört. Men tycker inte den var så bra. Det var himla kul att se en rysk film, den var snyggt gjord, men storyn var ingen höjdare, jag som gillar vampyrfilmer.

There are some things you just don’t do

Product Image: My Boss's Daughter
My rating: 2 out of 5

When a young man agrees to housesit for his boss, he thinks it’ll be the perfect opportunity to get close to the woman he desperately has a crush on – his boss’s daughter. But he doesn’t plan on the long line of other houseguests that try to keep him from his mission. And he also has to deal with the daughter’s older brother, who’s on the run from local drug dealers.

Neah, jag älskar filmer där folk gör bort sig. Men ibland blir det bara för mycket. Att sedan försöka blanda ihop allt med en kärlekshistoria, då rinner bägaren över. Den är lika dålig som Ashton Kutchers andra film Just Married.

Heads You Live… Tails You Die.

Product Image: Domino
My rating: 3 out of 5

Based on the true story of Domino Harvey (Keira Knightley), daughter of film actor Laurence Harvey. Tired and unsuited to the pretentiousness of her high-society LA life, Domino leaves the glittarti behind and sets off to become a bounty hunter. She quickly falls under the wing of veteran hunter Ed Mosley (Mickey Rourke) and his crew and becomes an unlikely natural in the art of bounty hunting. But things really heat up when a masked gang pilfer the contents of an armored car, and before long the mob, a crazed TV producer, the FBI and a terminally ill child have all got caught up in the crazy situation.

Mycket härlig färgsättning av filmen. Även härligt med lite grynighet. Snyggt filmad. Massor med bra skådisar dyker upp här och var. Till och med lite folk från 90210 🙂
Ibland är det riktigt svårt att sätta betyg. Vet inte om det är en svag fyra eller en stark trea. Men efter att tittat igeom vd för filmer som tidigare fått fyror, blir det en stark trea.

Product Image: Silver Hawk
My rating: 3 out of 5

Lulu Wong (Michelle Yeoh) lives two lives. The first is as a much-idolised rock star and philanthropist, while the second is to fight injustice as a super heroine known as the Silver Hawk. She teams up with police detective Richman (Richie Ren) in order to stop the Wolfe (Luke Goss) who plans to use a special mobile phone microchip in order to broadcast subliminal messages to mobile users.

Kul att se en asiatisk superhjälte, eller ja, superhjältinna. Som vanligt i asiatiska filmer är fightingscenerna superba. Annars var väl filmen som de flesta andra superhjältefilmerna, medioker.

Driven by revenge…

Product Image: BloodRayne
My rating: 2 out of 5

In eighteenth century Romania, Rayne, a dhampir (half-human, half-vampire), prone to fits of blind blood rage but saddled with a compunction for humans, strives to avenge her mother’s rape by her father, Kagan, King of Vampires. Two vampire hunters, Sebastian and Vladimir, from the Brimstone Society persuade her to join their cause.

Nu börjar jag förstå varför Uwe Boll har så dåligt rykte kring sitt filmskapande. Denna var riktigt usel. Fattar inte varför Michael Madsen eller Ben Kingsley ställde upp. Det enda som ger den lite plus var att den var hyffsat blodig 😀

The Perfect World Meets The Perfect Assassin

Product Image: Æon Flux
My rating: 3 out of 5

The sci-fi actioner is set 400 years in the future, when disease has wiped out the majority of the earth’s population except for one walled, protected city-state, Bregna, ruled by a congress of scientists. The story centers on Aeon Flux(Theron), the top operative in the underground ‘Monican’ rebellion, led by The Handler(Frances McDormand). When Aeon is sent on a mission to kill a government leader, she uncovers a world of secrets…

Neah, den var väl sådär. Snygga framtidslandskap. Men annars var väl inte filmen mycket att hänga i granen. En svag 3:a blir det. Det betyget blir det tack vare den lilla “twisten” som finns i filmen.

Who ya gonna call?

Product Image: Ghostbusters
My rating: 4 out of 5

Three odd-ball scientists get kicked out of their cushy positions at a university in New York City where they studied the occult. They decide to set up shop in an old firehouse and become Ghostbusters, trapping pesky ghosts, spirits, haunts, and poltergeists for money. They wise-crack their way through the city, and stumble upon a gateway to another dimension, one which will release untold evil upon the city. The Ghostbusters are called on to save the Big Apple.

Underbar! Vilka känslor man får när man ser en så här härlig gammal film, som man såg som ung. Den är ju kult!

Trouble In The Hood

Product Image: Hoodwinked
My rating: 3 out of 5

Little Red Riding Hood: A classic story, but there’s more to every tale than meets the eye. Before you judge a book by its cover, you’ve got to flip through the pages. For this story, we begin at the end. Furry and feathered cops from the animal world investigate a domestic disturbance at Granny’s cottage, involving a girl, a wolf, and an axe. The charges are many: breaking and entering, disturbing the peace, intent to eat, and wielding an axe without a license. Not to mention, this case might be tied to the elusive “Goody Bandit” who has been stealing the recipes of goody shops everywhere.

Denna var inte riktigt vad jag hade förväntat mig. Tror jag blev lite lurad då den är datoranimerad, så jag trodde den skulle vara i klass med Shrek. Men så bra är den inte. Varken animeringarna eller historien når upp i samma klass. Men det är ändå en riktigt kul vinkling på en gammal hederlig saga.
