It’s time to share with you some of the movies I’ve seen and enjoyed lately. Some are new, some are older and there is a series somewhere in between. Here they are:
Man of Steel
A different approach of Superman: A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he is forced to confront his secret extraterrestrial heritage when Earth is invaded by members of his race and become the symbol of hope for mankind.
Although very realistic and filled with violence, it was plain movie. The two main characters completely lacked chemistry. I would grade it 6 maximum.
Construction company owner John Matthews goes undercover for the DEA in order to free his son who was imprisoned after being set up in drug deal. With the unwitting help of an ex-con employee, John enters the narcotics underworld where every move could be his last in an operation that will demand all his resources, wits and courage to survive
I guess Dwayne Johnson must be doing something right, since he gets parts in so many movies, right? This movie was way better than I expected, filled with action and thrill. Worth seeing.
What’s your number?
A woman looks back at the past twenty men she's had relationships with in her life and wonders if one of them might be her one true love. Consequently, she decides to look up all of her exes to see if any of them have changed for the better. And when she has trouble locating them, she asks her neighbor Colin, for help.
This is a movie I would recommend to romantic comedy fans. It is not great, it goes cheap and slightly vulgar sometimes, even makes fun of social-media addicts, but it has the boost of bubbly, entertaining performances by both Chris Evans and Anna Farris, Chris Evans.
Meet Joe Black
Bill Parrish, media tycoon and loving father, acts as a guide to Death, who takes the form of a young man to learn about life on Earth and in the process, fall in love with his guide's daughter.
Don’t jump, I had seen this one before, but it happened to be on TV and I watched it again. I think it’s a very deep movie, which raises many questions about life, its values and what lies beyond it. Great performance by Anthony Hopkins- I don’t think there is a movie of his I haven’t enjoyed. I believe that Brad Pitt’s talent could have been valued better by the director- meaning that I imagined some of his scenes played differently.
On the run from a drug deal gone bad, Mike Ross, a brilliant college-dropout, slips into a job interview with one of New York City's best legal closers, Harvey Specter. Harvey takes a gamble by hiring Mike on the spot after he recognizes his raw talent and photographic memory. Mike and Harvey are a winning team. Mike's other allies in the office include the firm's best paralegal Rachel and Harvey's assistant Donna. Still, Mike and Harvey must keep their secret from everyone including managing partner Jessica and fellow lawyer Louis Litt.
My favorite series lately, as I have mentioned it before, although I have to admit that the premise is nonsensical. My favorite characters are Harvey, with his strong, winner attitude and Donna, with her bubbly, witty lines, her impeccable work and her occasional drama. I think I don't even have to mention the amazigly tailored suits and office outfits displayed one episode after the other. Surprisingly enough, I don’t like the actor chosen to play Mike at all, I think he makes the character look foolish and, ummm…definitely non-genius with his looks and acting style.
