Den fabelaktige Amelie fra Montmartre / Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain / The Fabulous Destiny of Amelie Poulain

All right movie, and some people may say boring. On the other side, this movie was nominated for several Oscars. The reason for why I watched it again was simply that I heard its background score in the beginning somewhere and wanted to hear it again. The movie has a nice beginning and that’s it, afterwards the story evolves too slowly.

Rating: 3/4 of 6

12 Monkeys

Cool science-fiction from mid 90’s. It had a special background score with violin, which actually is very uncommon in sci-fi movies. However, it worked for this movie to give it rareness.

Brad Pitt has given a good performance of his role.

Rating: 5 of 6

Secret Window

All right drama thriller with Johnny Depp. As there is mentioned in the movie that the ending is everything in a story (novel, movie etc), this also is the case here. The movie is all right entertainment, but the ending will surprise you positively, which will push you to watch the movie again. Unfortunately, the second experience till the climax will not be as entertaining as the first time.

Secret Window is based on Stephen King novel. A number of his novels have been filmatised, and not all of them have been that good. This attempt is successful.

Rating: 4/5 of 6

Out of Time

Cool movie. In addition, I like the Miami kind of atmosphere in the movie which helps when you experience rainy Norway…

Rating: 4/5 of 6

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

It seems like that the makers of this movie needed an excuse to make an action flick, and they dig in old concepts and found out that G. I. Joes haven’t got any movie yet. The rest should be straightforward history.

The movie has a thin story, and the main focus is on action scenes. Fair enough. You’ll get a cool experience, and that’s it.

Rating: 4 of 6

Once Upon a Time in Mexico

All right action movie. Johnny Depp has a cool performance. I thought the movie was cooler than it was. It was cool first time, but this time it was just an all right experience. Time to get rid of it from the collection perhaps..

Rating: 4/5 of 6

Righteous Kill

All right interesting action thriller.

New York

Amazing movie with a touching story and execution. All the main actors have given one of the best performances of their career. The script has some minor faults, which I disregard since the overall result is pretty good.

The movie deals around some characters related to the happening of 9/11-2001. After watching the trailers, the movie could remind of the Pakistani movie Khuda Kay Liye, but this is something relatively different.

Pirates of the Caribbean – At World's End

The third movie in this series. This movie has many characters from the previous movies, and it wasn’t that easy to remember all of those characters unless you are a hard core fan of this series which I am not. This reduced some of watching experience since you couldn’t easily know who the character was. Otherwise, all right entertainment.

The climax was well made.

Rating: 4/5 of 6

From Hell

Good periodic thriller about Jack the Ripper with Johnny Depp. The mystery of who Jack the Ripper was hasn’t still been resolved and this movie present an interesting theory of who he was.
