Movie Review: Equilibrium (2002)

Image

Action movies have gotten…not as fun these last couple of years. Sure, we have movies like “The Raid” and “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” that are actually quite good, but there are not many action movies these days with good action scenes. Most modern action scenes either cut every damn second so you barely see what the hell’s going on or the camera shakes too much so you don’t know what the hell’s going on. The 2000’s have not been the best for action, let alone sci-fi/action. Not even the “Matrix” sequels were good enough to change my judgement. So I decided to look for an action/sci-fi-action that might be good. Then I found this that had some fairly good reviews. But what do I think?

Human beings…Equilibrium.

In the future society have changed quite a bit. The world has become a Fascist society where feelings like happiness, sorrow, anger etc. Yup, not feelings at all. As well as all forms of art (Books, movies, paintings, snowglobes etc.). Wow, what a boring world. Basically everything is in one of three colors (Grey, white, black). But to take care of this “no feelings allowed” thing they have made a special medicine that makes you as neutral as you can. You take it a few times a day. But if you show feelings, you get sent to prison. Cease taking your medication and you will be killed. And for the killing there is a certain type of force to do it. The clerics. The story of the movie is mainly set on a cleric…no scratch that, THE CLERIC, John Preston (Christian Bale). After one of his normal jobs where he goes to a place, burns emotion-waking stuff, kills the “sense offenders” and goes away from there, he gets another assignment that happens to be a little more personal. His partner Partridge (Sean Bean) has been found reading an illegal book, and showing a little emotion. Preston shoots him. Then a little time later when he forgets to take his scheduled medication he starts experiencing emotion for the first time ever. Of course he has to hide this since A. He’s a Cleric and B. He would be killed. So on this “new twist on life” for him he ends up opposing the laws and ends up in more shit than most men could handle. So he ends up on a “journey” to overthrow the system. The story is surprisingly good, especially since a lot of times it looks like a fucking video game. It bugs me some times with some of it’s rules and norms, but still kind of holds up.

The characters…no. I do not like them. But that is only since the only one actually having some character development out of them is Preston. Everybody else stay the same fascist fuckers they were from the start. And the development Preston gets is good, but still not the most interesting. That aspect lowers the movie a bit.

The music in “Equilibrium” just proves that this movie still has some dignity (part from the story). It is good, but forgettable…you feel me? It is the type of music you’d expect from this type of movie, techno-y. With a few rock undertones. Good, but forgettable.

This movie is basically a living video game. It gives off the feeling that it wants to be a vdieo game, but it is stuck in a movie. And that feel weird to me. But one thing though is that it looks really good.

Reception for “Equilibrium” was very mixed to say the least. It got a 37% rating on Rotten Tomatoes which is not very good if you know math. Metacritic gave it a 33/100.
Strange thing is what Roger Ebert gave it, he gave it a 3/4 stars. His quote:

 “Equilibrium would be a mindless action picture, except that it has a mind. It doesn’t do a lot of deep thinking, but unlike many futuristic combos of sf and f/x, it does make a statement.”

It got a 7,7 on imdb.com

So based on everything said I am going to give Equilibrium as a movie 7,67/10. But as something that you just want as entertainment this gets a 10/10, this movie is perfect popcorn material with it’s great action scenes and Christian Fuckin’ Bale being a badass. So that is my opinion.

Review of Equilibrium is now finished.

Goodbye.

 

Movie Review: American History X (1998)

Image

Listen here now, I am not one to say white people are the superior beings of this world. But I am also not saying black, latino, asian or any other skin color are that either. I believe in an equivalent world where every person is equal to the next one. But there are dicks who think otherwise. And I am strangely enough interested in the “White Power” thing. Not that I want to be part of a group like that, I am more interested in what the fuck they’re thinking. Ya know, the psychological aspects of it. Today we are looking at a movie that explores those dark areas that exists within certain people.

Ladies and gents, the dark movie that stars two Edwards…American History X!

The story is set in Los Angeles (Mainly in the suburbs). It focuses on the two brothers Derek (Edward Norton) and Danny (Edward Furlong) and their lives as Danny is playing a small part in a Neo-Nazi gang led by a man named Cameron Alexander (Stacy Keach). Derek just got out of prison and have gotten a new view on life. He used to be part of the very same gang as Danny before he was convicted of manslaughter and sat in jail for 3 years. In there he got a new view on life to give up the bullshit skinhead life and pretty much start over (But he would probably have to live with all his horrible tattoos for the rest of his life since tattoo removal was very unusual back then). Throughout the movie we get to see flashbacks that shows us what he was like in the gang and in jail. We also get to see how he tries to get his little brother out of this gang and prevent him from going down the same terrible path he went down. You get to see a lot of the problems Derek has with his mother Doris (Beverly D’Angelo), one of his younger sisters (Jennifer Lien) and his former skinhead best friend Seth (Ethan Suplee). The story as it is and how it unfolds is just honestly fucking excellent. It is very dark at times and not always the most easy to get entertained by. But this movie is not only for entertainment by being a movie, it also makes you think about life and actions/reactions. The story is basically a big fat awesome in my book.

I’m gonna come straight out and be honest about the characters. I honestly want to punch them all in the fucking face at one point or the other. And I am not a person that often thinks that. But the fact that they can get under my skin enough to make me want to punch their god damn teeth out is just a proof of how well acted they are. The characters are at one time or another a dick, and that their respective actors give a performance that really gets under my skin as much as it does is just proof of awesome right there. Most cred I have to give here though is for Edward Norton as Derek. I mean, WOW! What an actor! I am going to say that this is the best performance I have ever seen from him. When you see him as the skinhead i nteh flashbacks you really want to show your fist in his mouth and a boot up his ass. But later on when he is good guy Derek you feel like he truly is the good guy that you want to give full support and just have a nice conversation with. By the way, he was Oscar Nominated for this role, so have some fucking respect.

The music is just…wow. It is for the majority of the movie orchestra-based songs to give effect to the different situations in the movie. In general it is good. At a few points in the movie the music changes to some “White Power” music. Honestly I couldn’t get into that music at all. Not just because of the message those songs had, but also because they were a jumbled mess musically in general. Those songs were as disorganised as they could ever fucking be.

A simple warning if you haven’t seen this movie before…it is not for the squeamish. There is some imagery in this movie that will upset those people…no doubt. Even I found it a little disturbing, and I am far from squeamish. Just felt like warning you.

Reception for “American History X” was pretty much good. There is nothing else there. It got a Metacritic score of 62/100. On Rotten Tomatoes it got an 83% score and is certified fresh (Which means it is good). Roger Ebert gave it 3/4 stars. Quote coming here;

“Always interesting and sometimes compelling, and it contains more actual provocative thought than any American film on race since Do the Right Thing”

On imdb.com it got a score of 8,6/10 and is ranked #33 on the Top 250 list.

Once again I have said good stuff about a movie. This time it was something different than what I’m usually watching. The score for “American History X” from my viewpoint is going to be a 9,67/10. It ranks 4 on my favorite movie list. I suggest you go watch this…except if you are very squeamish…then don’t.

Review of American History X is now completed.

Goodbye my friends.

The hair…it is on his f***ing head!

Oh my god another non-review on the blog, holy fucking shit. Who knew that there actually would be another appearing on this blog. Guess what I’ve been up to! Or wait, please don’t, I’m gonan tell your asses anyway.

As always I have reviewed movies and stuff that I have watched recently. Nothing special on that front.

One thing that recently happened was that I got a haircut. Yeah, I got short hair now. Why? Because, that’s why. Here’s an ugly pic. Image

Want to see a pic of what it looked like before? Have a look at one of my old posts to see. It was a lot longer before.

I was at a place called Laserdome recently with the Scouts. It is basically Lasertag but in Sweden…and they don’t pronounce it like it is supposed to be, they pronounce it “Laserdoom”. God damn it.

My grandmother (mother’s side) passed away a couple of days ago. It is very sad since I loved her a lot. She was just…great.

Since I have nothing else that is interesting, here comes the random facts:

I am around 6’3” tall (190 cm/1,9 m for europeans and the majority of the world).

I listen to music every day. And I am not kidding. The total amount of hours spent listening to music in one way or another every day is pretty big.

I consider Red Dead Redemption to be one of the best video games ever.

I do not think GTA 5 is as good as a ton of people say it is. I think it is better than average, but it’s otherwise nothing special

I just blooged normal boring info again, huh.

Buh bye.

Movie Review: Snatch (2000)

Image

If you remember from a while back, I did a review of a crazy caper anime by the name of “Baccano!”. You might also remember that I gave it a pretty damn good score. So I gotta admit, crazy stuff involving robbery and heists are something I like. Another good example is the movie “Heat”. While not being crazy per se, “Heat” was still a heist movie and one that I liked pretty much. So since this is a crazy caper, or as the Rolling Stone calls it; “A Rock ’em Sock ’em caper with energy to spare”. So what did this young but enthusiastic reviewer think of it?

Dear Readers…Snatch.

The story of Snatch is set in England (For the majority of the movie) and follows several connecting stories that have different characters that all have one thing in common…a big diamond. Sure, not all of the characters knows about this supposedly “worth a shit-ton of money” diamond. But it is the one thing connecting all the stories in the end. But to take it from the different perspectives that meet up at one point or another…There is first the men Turkish (Jason Statham) and Tommy (Stephen Graham) who wants to make some money through betting in illegal underground boxing matches. That is how they meet the underdog/pro Mickey O’Neil (Brad Pitt) who you can barely understand anything from by his strange accent (So watch with subtitles so you can know what the hell is going on). Mickey also happens to be (hope I don’t offend anyone) a gipsy (even though he dresses really nicely, sorry if I offend anyone). Look, this movie got so many characters with separate stories that I don’t really feel like going through them all, because A. That would involve spoilers. And B. Too many to go through, this review would get too long. But as the story unfolds I got highly entertained by the fact that something is always happening in this movie, like in every Guy Ritchie movie. This movie never really stops, something is always happening with so much energy that it never gets dull (And I fucking love that).

Like I said before, there are too many characters to go through, so I am not gonna go through them all. But I can however say that they are all flawed, but awesome. They are all highly entertaining to watch evdn if they only get like 5 minutes of screen-time or if you can’t understand a damn thing they’re saying (Damn you, Brad Pitt). There are so many interesting situations that these characters go through that they always stay interesting. One more thing to mention character-wise is that a lot of these characters are either pyscho-mobsters or upright douchebags. Just warning you.

The music in Snatch is just…just…Snatch. Okay, it is fucking awesome. It is just the perfect kind of music for this kind of crazy bullshit. The songs fit their respective placements…perfectly. For example, there is a scene where Irish (I think it’s Irish) Brad Pitt is in a boxing match and they playing “F***in’ in The Bushes” by Oasis and it just works so damn well.

Like I said before, this movie is made with the same energy as every Guy Ritchie movie ever…without going too much over-the-fucking-top. Guy Ritchie movies have so much spare energy that you never get bored by the movie. Another thing you see in this movie like every Guy Ritchie movie ever is the fact that there is a nice dosage of comedy in the damn movie. Just take a look at the “Sherlock Holmes” movies starring Robert Downey Jr. Those movie have a lot of great comedy and are directed by the lovely Mr. Ritchie. Another fun thing to mention is the fact that the opening credits highly resemble the opening credits of Baccano! That is because for that part, the director of Baccano! used Snatch as inspiration (Oh come on you haters, it’s clearly visible).

The reception for Snatch was actually pretty good. It got a 73% score on Rotten Tomatoes. Roger Ebert gave it a 2/4 stars, here is a quote from him:

“What am I to say of ‘Snatch’, Ritchie’s new film, which follows the ‘Lock, Stock’ formula so slavishly it could be like a new arrangement of the same song?”

It got an 8,4/10 on imdb and ranks #91 on their Top 250 list.

Based on the young but enthusiastic reviewers opinions on “Snatch” via story, characters, music, other opinions and acting (which I never mention, but what the hell?), Snatch gets a 9,23/10. This movie is well deserved a watch by any movie lover or for anyone who at least like Guy Ritchie movies/crazy capers.

I reviewed Snatch, I’m done here now.

See you, friends.

P.S. If you have a movie I should watch/review, feel free to suggest it to me. I like suggestions.

Movie Review: Shaun of The Dead (2004)

Image

Zombie movies. They are very…well, interesting. Sometimes they can be awesome like the original 1978 “Dawn of The Dead”. Or they can be complete shit like the “Resident Evil” movies. But then there are those who seems weird, but turn out to be good. Like the 2004 “Dawn of The Dead” remake. Then there is this, a movie that mixes zombies with comedy…and it’s British (please don’t kill me, British people!). The combination seems like one of the strangest ever. But how is it then? Well, let us take a look at the these days very popular Edgar Wright zambie movie…”Shaun of The Dead”.

The story is set in a small-ish town in England where there lives this guy named Shaun (Simon Pegg). He works at a store. His favorite things in life is his girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield) and a bar called The Winchester (Named after a Winchester rifle that hangs in there). And his life is in general a big ol’ pain in the ass. His girlfriend is kind of bored at their relationship, he got some problems with his mom and stepdad and just got a boring life in general. But one day…his town (and apparently everywhere else in England) gets attacked by zombies. People getting up from their graves to eat the living. But it seems like Shaun doesn’t give two shits. It actually looks like he has no fucking idea that there are zombies there. He is just so depressed after his girlfriend dumps him that he doesn’t notice shit happening around him. It takes both him and his best friend Ed (Nick Frost) so much time to realize something is wrong with everything. And when they finally do realize what the hell is going on…Shaun comes up with a plan that spawned one of the greaest quotes ever. I’m not gonna spoil it…but you’l know what I mean when you see it. So the story is kind of…weird. But it is also one of the most amusing ones I have ever seen being unfolded in any movie ever. It is just so fun to see what the hell the stuff that Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg have written together will be on screen. The comedy in this movie is perfectly written and really…British. But what should I expect from a movie written by two English people who does lots of comedy? Still, really good and quirky comedy!

So the characters are…very flawed. But that is what makes them so fun and entertaining to watch. They are all so vastly different in styles and personalities. For example, we have Shaun who is first bored with life, sometimes kind of impulsive but grows more and more. The character development in this movie is some of the finest in any movie I have ever seen. Every character evolves in a different way from the others, but that is a good thing. Imagine if everyone developed into pretty much the same character, that would have sucked some major ass. But here they all become so different and I fucking love that.

The music is good. It is mostly made from already existing songs. Not that having those songs was a bad choice, since those songs happen to be pretty good and fit very well into the situations where they are used. If I remember correctly, I think that there were a few tracks that were original/new, but they were not too memorable. One fun thing about the music is that it wasn’t just always edited in. A lot of times it happened to come from some kind of source like a car radio or a jukebox.

One thing this movie does is something you often see in Edgar Wright movies. They are filmed with tons of energy and often uses quick zooms (which looks awesome-balls!). Edgar Wright movies are usually filmed in a quick and awesome way that you rarely see in movies these days. And I love it.

Reception for Shaun of The Dead…there is no bad reception what-so-fucking-ever. It got a 91% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It got a 76/100 on Metacritic. And it got a 3/4 stars by the one and only Mr. Roger Ebert. One thing that I have to mention is that the very famous horror/suspense author Stephen King thought the movie was great. Yeah…the author of “It” liked a Zom-Com. He thought it was worth a 10. Good guy Stephen.

So based on my many good opinions on this movie I will have to give thise movie the 9,5/10. This is probably one of the funniest movies ever without being a dumb-dumb comedy (American Pie, Dude Where’s My Car, Ace Ventura etc.). This movie is smart, fun, well acted and just in general fucking great. Go buy it. NOW, DAMN IT!

My review of this cult classic is now completed.

See you later, alligator.

Movie Review: Sin City (2005)

Image

If you are a person that knows me, then you know I am a sort of all-round nerd. Movies, tv, anime, books…comics. Take two of those and you get a certain 2005 movie. And of course I mean comics (or more specifically, graphic novels) and movies. So what happens when you take one of the darkest and most brutal comic series, turn it into a movie and let Robert Rodriguez direct it? You get this interesting 2005 action movie.

Guys…the brutal and dark movie simply known as; Sin City.

Like I pretty much said, the story is based on graphic novels (very graphic, yes puns are allowed here) by Frank Miller who also happens to co-direct this movie. The story follows three different guys and their different situations, all of them involving crime…and a shit-ton of violence. To round up the gang we start with John Hartigan (Bruce Willis), a cop who is sick of the corruption within law enforcement in Basin City (Yes, that is the name of the town), he often refers to himself as old man (which he is) while dealing with a poor heart that could give out at any moment of stress. Next on the list is Marv (Mickey Rourke), a man who is dead set to find the killer of a hooker he slept with (even though he had no fucking clue she was a hooker). This guy is fucking relentless, I mean like wow! Nothing actually stops this guy, they just slow him down. Yeah. And to round up our list of flawed men we have Dwight McCarthy (Clive Owen). A man who had some form of plastic surgery to change his face (his original will be revealed in the sequel coming august this year). He wants to stop this one guy who had hurt and threatened his girlfriend. He also helps out a part of town controlled by, and I am not making this up, prostitutes. There are a lot of things happening in this movie. There is for example parts where Marv fights this cannibal who is too fucking fast for him by the name of Kevin (Elijah Wood). There are a lot of fucked up things happening in this movie. But that is what makes it so interesting plot wise.

The characters in this movie are generally flawed, but only in one way unique to every character. But that is what makes them so damn entertaining to watch. The most entertaining characters were the more psycho characters. Honestly one of the best things go to the character of Jackie Boy (Benicio Del Toro). He is just so fun and cool. He also got a cool voice. But like I said…characters are flawed, but fun as hell.

The music in the movie is perfect for the movie it is in. It is a soundtrack about as dark and haunting as the rest of the movie. That is all.

One good thing to mention about this movie is that is for the most part in black and white. There are colors in it, yes. But they are mostly featured if they either are A: Based on a bodily fluid or B: Bright fucking red. The colors that you’ll see the most in this movie are Red, Yellow and Blue. You will see a few other, but that is not the most usual. But the black and white style combined with the every-now-and-then colors make for a nice detail in the movie.

The reception for Sin City back in ’05 was pretty much good all across the board. Hell, even Roger Ebert gave it a 4/4 stars. He thought it was that good. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 78% score. And that’s pretty damn good. It got an 8,2/10 on imdb and it placed #169 on imdb’s top 250 list.

So based on me thinking the story was good, characters entertaining, music nice, black and white goodness and in generally good action scenes, I will give this movie a 9,25/10. This movie is honestly a lot better than I thought I would think. If you get the chance, buy this lovely neo-noir brutality-fest. It is worth you time/money.

I have sinned by reviwing this (Puns again).

Bye now.

Movie Review: Heat (1995)

Image

Have you also noticed that a lot-ish games contain/are about bank heists? And there are some good ones; Payday, GTA5 and more. But what about movies? I know there are a lot of movies featuring a bank heists, but they are usually the secondary focus (See things like “30 minutes or less”). It is rare to find one where the heist(s) is the prime focus. At least movies that are set in more modern times than westerns. So when I heard about this movie called “Heat”, it pinched my interest a little bit. Especially since it starred both Robert De Niro AND Al Pacino. Oh and Val Kilmer (But I didn’t care too much for Kilmer by the time I heard of this which was before I saw Tombstone). So I finally sat my ass down to watch it. But was it good? Let’s talk about it.

Ladies and gentledicks…Heat.

The story is about a bank heist crew led by a man named Neil McCauley (Robert De Niro). They are the best damned crew in all of Los Angeles. And who knows, maybe even in America? On this team of badasses we have Chris Shiherlis (Val Kilmer), a fucking aced sniper and pony tail wearing badass. Michael Cherrito (Tom Sizemore), I don’t remember his part, I think he was mainly a brute. And there was another guy but I can’t remember/find who he was and who played him, sorry. Anyway, let us continue. On the other side of the law we not only have normal cops. We even have one with a name…Lieutenant Vincent Hanna (Al Pacino). He is basically the one leading the search for the bank robbers that have not only stolen expensive shit, but also killed a few people. There is a slight mind game going on between McCauley and Hanna throughout the game, mostly because of how elusive McCauley is even though Hanna is one of the best at his job. So as the story unfolds, it really shows that it is a really good story filled with plot twists, suspenseful moments and genuine great storytelling. And those things are usually typical for a Michael Mann movie.

So the characters are…well I don’t really want to use a word synonymous to perfect. Because that is not what they are, even though they are fucking awesome. They are flawed…for the most part. But they are so interesting that I don’t mind. But most of the interesting parts come from the fact that they all are so well acted, and I love that shit.

Music is…great. Not perfect, but nothing ever is…mostly. But for what it is and what it does…it’s great. The soundtrack is a nice mix of orchestral instruments for the different types of moments in the movie.

Have to mention the action scenes. They are really fucking good! I love them! That’s all.

The reception for the film was overall pretty good. With scores like 86% on Rotten Tomatoes and 76/100 on Metacritic. And for the first time in a while, I have found a Roger Ebert review on it. And he really liked it. Here is a quote:
“It’s not just an action picture. Above all, the dialogue is complex enough to allow the characters to say what they’re thinking: They are eloquent, insightful, fanciful, poetic when necessary. They’re not trapped with cliches. Of the many imprisonments possible in our world, one of the worst must be to be inarticulate — to be unable to tell another person what you really feel”.

So overall, this movie got good shit going for it. And that is good since that means I am giving it a score of 9,49/10. This movie is worth every dollar/pound/krona/yen that you spend on it. Go buy it. Or rent it. This is probably one of the smartest actions/thrillers ever.

I robbed you of your time with this review (Bank heist pun).

Movie Review: Blood Diamond (2006)

Image

Leonardo DiCaprio…getting Oscar nominated over and over again but never winning…that’s too sad. But when he gets nominated it is for a good reason. And was it so here? In this movie that got 5 oscar nominations. Is it really that good in this reviewers humble opinion? Well, there is only one way to find out.

Guys and girls…Blood Diamond.

The story is set in Africa 1999. There is civil war between the government and an organization called “The RUF”. This war is mainly over weapons trade and diamonds. These diamonds are often found by the RUF, sold to America and te UK so they can get money to buy more weapons so they can take over. And they are already taking over villages in very violent and gruesome ways. One day, the village where a man named Solomon Vandy (Djimon Hounsou) gets attacked. The RUF cuts off the hands of a few villagers and slaughters most of them. But they take Solomon to go and mine/look for diamonds. From the place where he does this work he escapes. He also happened to find a big, pink diamond (hence the name “Blood Diamond”. He hides it. After his escape he meets a smuggler by the name of Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio) and a reporter named Maddy Bowen (Jennifer Connelly). Together they go through the land to find Solomon’s family and get the Blood Diamond. So the story is…really interesting. It at least kept me interested for the entire time. The story can also get VERY dark sometimes, but that’s what gives it the edge it needs.

The characters…are flawed but oh so fun to see in action. Everyone in this movie are so well acted that they stay interesting. Most of my praise will however go to Leonardo DiCpario who does a stunning performance as Dany Archer. Also a lot of praise go to Djimon Hounsou who also did one of the best performances ever. Both got Oscar nominated.

Soundtrack for the movie is one of the best I have ever heard from a movie. And I mean from movies that have an original soundtrack and not just a bunch of famous/well-known songs. This soundtrack is excellent as both an original soundtrack and a soundtrack in general.

Reception has been pretty mixed. Nothing bad really, but some scores have called this movie average. For example, on Rotten Tomatoes it got a 63% score, which is fairly low. However, it have also gotten a lot, and I mean A LOT of good reviews. This has been called one of the best movies of 2006. But yeah, good reviews are frequent for this.

Like I said, this movie can get very dark which can make it difficult to watch at times. But overall it is a great  movie. I am gonna give it a 9,46/10. This movie is so damn good. Especially the excellent performances by…everyone. And I am glad I bought the 2-disc special edition for a good price. Because this is THAT GOOD.

The revirew of Blood Diamond is now done.

Bye now.

Movie Review: The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

Image

Movie based on something that actually happened are often a hit or miss. A lot of ones I have seen have been hits (Walk The Line, Argo, Schindler’s List etc.). So when I heard about this supposed “over the top but real” movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio it raised my curiosity quite a bit. Especially since this was yet another collaboration between DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese. So I took a look at it, and here is my review of it.

People, the biography of a man containing such great actors as Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler, Matthew McConaughey, Margot Robbie, Rob Reiner, Jon Bernthal, Jon Favreau and many more talented people…The Wolf of Wall Street.

This movie is set in the 1980’s or something. It tells the story of young to-be stock broker Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) who is on the rise on the infamous Wall Street. He becomes one of the biggest and greatest stock brokers ever and starts doing all kinds of drugs, sleep with hookers and just be a rich fucking ass-hat. The story is delivered with such energy and awesomeness that it feels really well done and dare I say it…good. But that is to be expected in a Scorsese movie…well, for the most part.

I’m gonna be completely honest and say that the characters are fucking awesome. They are so well acted (Yes, even Jonah Hill) that they feel alive and really, really good. Sure, they can be over-the-god-damn-top sometimes, but that is why they are so entertaining to see in this movie.

The soundtrack for this movie is like I said about the previous entries on this review…great. It is a great mix of good songs. It is mainly songs that are fairly easy to dance to, or at least follow the rhythm and have fun. So yeah…it is great.

The reception for this movie was pretty much off the fucking charts. A lot, and I mean A LOT of people liked this movie. Unfortunately Roger Ebert had passed away before the release of this movie. IT would have been interesting to see what he would have said about it.

After saying all this good shit about the movie, then you probably expect me to give it a good score. And you would be correct on that note. My final score for “The Wolf of Wall Street” is a 9,3/10. This movie is THAT GOOD and deserves to be seen and even bought (when the DVD/Blu-Ray is out).

The Wolf of Wall Street has now been reviewed by me.

I’ll see you soon enough!

17…is a number

So I am back for some bloggy stuffs. Yes, the grammar and stuff was incorrect, but I don’t care. So let’s cover the topics.

My dad turned 53 this tuesday (1st of april 2014). He is one hell of a person. Most people who know him think he’s a great person, and I agree. We (me and mom) gave him some cake and some roses. He really liked that.

I recently rewatched “Fullmetal Alchemist: The Conqueror of Shamballa” and realized that it wasn’t as good as I originally thought. It’s still a good movie, but not THAT GOOD.

I got a mysterious scar on my middle finger. I have no fucking clue where it comes from. Maybe it was the silence (start Doctor Who music).

This saturday (5th of april 2014) I am turning 17 (Holy shit). I haven’t wished for anything special/certain. I have just asked my parents to take me into town so I can pick out a few things that I might want (mostly games). So, yeah. It’s kind of okay wit ha weekend for once.

Random Facts:

The place where I live contain less than 1000 inhabitants.

I have known  my best friend since I was 7 (He is a year younger than me, so that would make him 6 at the time).

I think the Call of Duty games are…okay, not bad just…okay.

I love the anime series “Monster (2004)”.

 

I’ll see ya!
