Angel Has Fallen: Should They Have Stopped in London?

Angel Has Fallen (2019), directed by Ric Roman Waugh, is the third movie in the Fallen series, prefaced by Olympus Has Fallen (2013) and London Has Fallen (2016). This film received mixed reviews. While some found it very effective, and a satisfying culmination of the trilogy, most found it predictable and dissatisfying.

Well, What Happens?

Gerard Butler portrays weathered Secret Service agent Mike Banning, recently chosen by US President Alan Trumbull–played by Morgan Freeman–to be the new Secret Service Director. While Banning attempts to hide his declining health, the President’s peaceful fishing trip is interrupted by an army of lethal drones. While Banning is able to evacuate the President alive, Trumbull is left injured and comatose. The Secret Service then uncovers planted DNA evidence framing Banning as the brains behind the attempted assassination. He is forced into hiding, running from his own agency and the FBI. read more

Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad…worth watching all day and all night long, everyday!

If there is a series that has to be seen by every TV show lover is Breaking Bad. When I saw the first episode I was so hooked that I went to sleep at 4:00 a.m. watching as much episodes as possible. Breaking Bad is simply one of the greatest TV shows ever because it instantly glues you to the screen from its very first scene. It was that first scene with Bryan Cranston in tighty whities, running away in the desert of New Mexico that announced the greatness of Breaking Bad. Beginning with the spectacular work done by Vince Gilligan creating, writing and directing the acclaimed TV show and following up with a deluxe cast led by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, this series has it all: beautiful scenography, unexpected twists around every corner and some great characters that support the impeccable job done by Cranston. read more

Star Wars : Les Derniers Jedi

The Force is weak in this one

I still remember the first time I saw my first Star Wars movie: a friend of mine brought A New Hope for a sleepover at my house and he told me that I was about to see the best movie ever. At that time it indeed was but then I saw Episodes V and VI and both of them made it to the top of my favorite movies, making it very hard for me to decide which one I liked the best and decided that I. I feel very sad for not being able to say the same for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, a total disappointment for me, a true Star Wars Fanatic. I have seen all the movies several times, I have played around 5 Star Wars video games, I love to see Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series with my nephews and, just like millions of fans out there, I have been anxiously waiting for The Last Jedi, and like most of them I left the movies feeling a strange emptiness inside of me. read more

Kedi

A very original and captivating film

edi is the living proof that any story is worth telling if you know how to tell it and using the proper tools, you can create magic. What I loved about this movie is the unique point of view from which is told. At some point, I even thought that someone had hooked Go Pro cameras to the cats and let them film the entire thing. Nonetheless, the movie was filmed by humans using different techniques such as hidden cameras located in strategic points to get a closer look at cats’ secret life.

The movie was filmed entirely in Istanbul, Turkey, whose people show a great respect for cats and take care of them. Kedi shows us how these cats have adapted to the urban lifestyle and how they manage to survive and raise their offspring as well as their lifestyle and their hunting habits. Ceyda Torun is the talent behind the camera that directed this amazing film and she proved that one does not need a huge list of previous movies to show what one can do. She portrayed the lives of 8 stray cats, each one with a different personality that resembles us, human beings and this fact is so entrancing for someone who is not familiarized with cats that you do not need to be a cat lover to enjoy this film. read more
