My Favorite Scenes: Confessions of a Dangerous Mind – Can’t Help Falling in Love

Hello people! I know, I know. Two posts the same day and also pretty tight on each other, it is annoying. But I felt like I had to share this one thing. As you know, this “series” was created for me to be able to share My Favorite Scenes from movies/TV with you guys. And I just reviewed a movie with an (in my opinion) incredible scene that I just had to share. It is a scene from the 2002 biographical crime-comedy “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” that features our main guy Chuck Barris (Sam Rockwell) looking at his life while someone at his game show/talents show sings “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley (Pretty awfully if you ask me). But having the imagery in combination with the song jsut resonated with me so well that I couldn’t help falling in love with it (See what I did there?). I love this scene and I hope you do to… after you see the movie of course.
Enjoy!

Movie Review: Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002)

gUzZ67mUtK4TTR7NAyLYmh2kh5a

Biographical pictures (Or Bio-pics for you lazy folks) is one of the touchiest subjects within movies. People always complain “Ugh, that shit didn’t actually happen!” or “He wasn’t like that, you portrayed him wrong!”. I can see why people have a tendency to complain about things like that. So that is why I have chosen to look at movies from the standpoint of seeing it as a movie and judging it as a movie rather than judge it based on how exact it is to the actual events portrayed. So let’s look at a bio-pic that seems like it couldn’t have been real in any way. But in some aspects it apparently was…

Ladies and gentlemen… “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind”.

This movie is about ascent and eventual decline of game show host and alleged CIA hitman Chuck Barris (Sam Rockwell). We get to see his life from his point of view as he tries to become a big and respected guy within the media industry while also being a hitman hired by Jim Byrd (George Clooney). We also get a look into his personal life with his girlfriend/future wife Penny (Drew Barrymore). The way this story is shown is through a mix of seeing the actors do what they are paid and then at a few points we get to see interviews with some people who have actually met Chuck. And all this help conjure up a very interesting and unconventional plot. I was very entertained by the plot of this movie and I loved seeing how it unfolded in this very unconventional style.

The characters are all very colorful, realistic and amazingly written. They all feel like real people in this big web of deception and entertainment. And I am so happy to say (like most times) that Sam Rockwell gives a terrific performance in this movie. He really brings Barris to life with a lot of energy, style and humanity. I mean, he shines in the scenes where he gets to show a lot of emotion in one way or another. And I can safely say that all actors in the movie were great.

The odd thing about this movie is that there is no original score for the movie. Usually you can find at least a few tracks that a composer has created, but there is no real “original score”. On the otehr hand there are a lot of licensed tracks from the era(s) that the movie is set in (Sidenote: The movie is set during the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s). And the music used in the movie fits every scene perfectly and just helps set the mood throughout the movie. I loved listening to the music throughout.

This movie was directed by George Clooney and holy shit is it well-directed. I find it difficult to comprehend the fact that this was Clooney’s directorial debut. It is stylish and got a lot of falir and energy in it’s direction.  One example I can give where the direction combined with music and acting just shined and resonated deeply with me was a scene in the movie where Chuck was looking at his life a bit while “Can’t help falling in love with you) by Elvis was played in the background. That scene was just great. And after a little bit of research I found out one interesting thing about the real life story; Barris may or may not have made up the fact that he killed people for CIA… but I don’t care. He wrote it in his book, it made it into the movie and it made the plot a whole lot more interesting. Like I said, I judge the movie as a movie rather than judging it as a real life story. Just thought the fact could be fun to mention.

This movie was pretty well-received even if it didn’t do great at the box office. On Rotten Tomatoes the movie has a 79% positive rating with a “Fresh” certification. On Metacritic it has a score of 67/100. Roger Ebert gave the movie a score of 3,5/4 stars. And on imdb.com it has a score of 7,1/10.

“Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” has an unconventional and interesting plot with great writing, great acting, great use of music, splendid direction from George Clooney. Time for my final score. And the winner is… this one. My final score for “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” is a 9,84/10. It of course receives the “SEAL OF APPROVAL!”

“Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” is finally reviewed.

I am usually not a guy who tries to push my opinion onto people, but I feel like my thoughts on bio-pics are the way to go. Don’t believe it’s a good idea? Go watch John Flickster explain it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rI8HFD_YVw

 

Movie Review: Fury (2014)

Fury 1366x768

War is ugly. Sure, some people get hailed as heroes, but that is only to glorificate it to make more people join the army/navy. And when the war advertisements are done, the “heroes” get thrown away like another bag of trash. There is nothing beautiful or great about war, it is all dirt, blood and loss of humanity. Now that I got that mini-rant out of the way I will have to admit that war movies are pretty cool. So here we have a war movie.

Ladies and gentlemen… “Fury”.

So what is this movie about? Well it is about a squad of soldiers (Logan Lerman, Jon Bernthal, Michael Peña, Shia LaBeouf) led by soldier “Wardaddy” (Brad Pitt) who are tasked to get an American Sherman-tank through enemy lines and kill some nazis. At the same time it is about rookie soldier Norman (Lerman) getting thrown into all this shit and trying to live with it all and learn to fight. And with that, I was pretty impressed with the story of the movie. Not that it was anything special per se, but I still liked that it was constantly moving and also that it didn’t try to be something overly emotional or complex. And when I say it was constantly moving I was slightly lying considering there is one scene about halfway into the movie that slows everything down a little bit. Not that I hated the scene or anything, I just felt like it broke the pace a little bit. Otherwise I liked the story.

The characters… fucking hell! If you count away Logan Lerman for a second, everyone in the tank are assholes. Except for Logan Lerman who is a good guy in the movie, I will also mention that this is the best I have ever seen from him. I can also mention that Jon Bernthal wasn’t an asshole in the movie… he was even lower than that! He was the biggest dickhead ever and no one ever stopped him during his dickhead shenanigans. But I do have to mention that Bernthal played him very well. And of course, Brad Pitt as “Wardaddy”… he was great. But that shouldn’t come as a surprise, it’s Brad Pitt. Brad Pitt is always great… or at least good. And yes, even “Actual Cannibal” Shia LaBeouf is also great in it. He may have been up to some really weird shit, but at least he has proven that he got acting chops. And Michael Peña was great too, but I knew that after seeing “End of Watch” (Sidenote: “End of Watch” was directed by David Ayer who also directed this).

The score by Steven Price really helps catch the intensity of the story and the war. It also helps set the mood during any scenes that it’s part of. It really gives a lot of emotion and power to the movie.

This movie features some of the most intense action scenes that I have ever seen. Seeing the tank fight other tanks and German soldiers was not only brutal but also really badass. The movie is also directed in such a way where you feel like you’re part of the crew and like you’re in the tank with them while they’re blowing nazis up. IT is also fun seeing that this movie is beautifully shot with steady shots, wide shots and not any shaky found-footage like “End of Watch” (Sidenote: Don’t misunderstand that, I love “End of Watch”).

People seemed to really like this movie. On Rotten Tomatoes it has a 77% positive rating with a “Fresh” certification. On Metacritic it has a score of 64/100. And on imdb.com it has a score of 7,7/10.

“Fury” is a movie featuring a good story, great acting, really good writing, great direction and really intense action scenes. The only negative about the movie is that one scene near the halfway point that breaks pace. Time for my final score. Jeff, get me the envelope! Someone in the way? Kill him! It is a kid? Well I don’t care if it’s a baby with a butter knife in one hand and momma’s left titty in the other, you kill it. *Five minutes goes by* You got it? Good! Sorry about that, guys. My final score for “Fury” is a 9,58/10. It is pretty great and will get the “SEAL OF APPROVAL!”

Review of “Fury” is completed.

My Top 15 Movie Theme Songs

conductor

As a guy who watches a good amount of movies I tend to often listen in on the soundtrack. And not necessarily on when you hear a licensed track and go “Oh shit, I know that song!”. I mainly talk about the original score for the movie. You know, the music a composer has spent countless hours writing and conducting. So today I am here to give you my list of favorite theme songs from different movies! Time to lay out the rules!

Rule #1: Same as always, this is my list. If you disagree with something then you can’t complain about it. Maybe you can write a comment on what song you would have included on the list.

Rule #2: Even though some songs are really recognizable as the movie theme song (Example: “Born to be Wild” in the movie “Easy Rider”) I will only include songs that someone has composed.

Rule #3: The song has to truly be recognized as the main theme to make this list. So even though I absolutely love the song “Time” from “Inception” it will not make the cut as it isn’t called or known as the main theme of the movie.

Rule #4: Listen and enjoy!

Ladies and Gentlemen… My Top 15 Movie Theme Songs.

Number 15: River Kwai March – The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957)

First up on the list is the main theme from a movie I haven’t even seen yet… oops. But I am still putting it here on the list because of how catchy and memorable it is. Whenever I hear it I want to start marching to some place and have this play the entire way. (Sidenote: First time I heard this was when it was in one of my sheet music books a few years ago).

Number 14: Lux Aeterna – Requiem For a Dream (2000)

At number 14 we have this beautiful piece of music composed by Clint Mansell and also happens to be the theme song to the most depressing movie ever. Don’t get me wrong, I fucking adore the movie, it is just depressing. I am also not ashamed to say that it is the scariest movie I have ever seen. Seriously, after I was done seeing the movie I still had chills down my spine and I wanted to go hug something. And this was the perfect theme tune to accompany it. Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go cuddle with my dog because of scary “Requiem” flashbacks.

Number 13: Claudia’s theme – Unforgiven (1992)

Next up on the list is the fantastic, beautiful and almost tear inducing theme tune from Clint Eastwood’s final western. Not only does this songs fit perfectly for the movie, but it also happens to be one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard. Lennie Niehaus’ composition combined with memories of the fantastic movie it is part of always brings a smile to my face. I mean, that god damn guitar… fantastic, simply fantastic!

Number 12: Intro theme – Fight Club (1999)

You think you would be safe from me talking about “Fight Club”, huh? Well whoop-de-doo, you’re not! This song really catches you off guard the first time you hear when you decide to finally watch “Fight Club”. I know I was at least thrown off guard when I sat there, waiting for the movie to start and then *BOOM, BITCH* it kicks in and I knew I was going for one hell of a ride! Hell, this song just sums up what “Fight Club” is… a big, crazy ride!

Number 11: Main title – Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)

At number 11 is the metallic, badass and kind of awesome theme tune from the metallic, badass and kind of awesome action/sci-fi movie “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”. And yes, I know the first “Terminator” movie has the same theme song, but “T2” has the better version (In my opinion). It starts with some heavy bangs, continues with some slow(ish) synth sound and finishes off with some more heavy bangs. But I have an even better description for the song, here we go… DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN!!!

Number 10: James Bond theme – Dr. No (1962)

I will admit, I have not actually seen “Dr. No”. But I can say that I have listened to this song more than a few times trhoughout my life. Why? Because it’s awesome! The brass, the guitar, the… EVERYTHING! It is a classic theme that will live through to the end of days and will get covers and remixes as long as people still exist on this planet. I also like it because it feels very… agent-y. I don’t know how to descrive any other way, it’s just good.

Number 9: Pacific Rim – Pacific Rim (2013)

One of the newer songs on the list. This song combines two things I absolutely love; Epic orchestras with a good amount of string instruments, and guitar. This song wa composed by Ramin Djawadi who you may know from things like “Prison Break” or “Game of Thrones”. And for this song he got help from none other than the Nightwatchman himself… Tom Morello who does the badass guitar stuff. You probably know him from the band “Rage Against the Machine”. Either that or you know him from playing “Guitar Hero 3”. Anyway, this songs is really badass, really epic and really awesome. I want it played at my wedding when I walk down the aisle… I know, I’m weird.

Number 8: Main title – Jaws (1975)

Duuuun DUN, Duuuun DUN… that is all I have to say to scare your butts out of the ocean. This theme is as iconic as a theme tune of a movie can get and it has been mimicked many a time. Also, if you love the movie like I do, this song makes you smile you son of a…!

Number 7: Raider’s March – Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

Oh if nothing has gotten me any flak yet, this sure as hell will. Putting “Indiana Jones” as low as number 7. But hey, it’s at least still in the Top 10. This song always gets me pumped to go on an adventure and look for ancient treasures in an old temple in an old jungle! But really I would end up looking at rocks and sticks in the woods. But it would still be really fucking epic with this song playing! Also, it is a John Williams track… those are always great and you know it!

Number 6: Main theme – Speed (1994)

This seriously reminds me of how I forgot to put “Speed” in my “Top Action Movies” list. I feel so embarassed. Oh well, no use crying over spilled milk. This track, composed by Mark Mancina, is badass, epic and perfectly fits the high speed, high tension action movie it is used in. You also got to love that part early in the song when you have several consecutive hits. I don’t know how to explain it in text, but I hope someone out there knows which part I am talking about! Someone!

Number 5: Gonna Fly Now – Rocky (1976)

Hearing this song makes me want to work out which is weird because I am one lazy son of a bitch. It is also a little weird to have this here because… *sigh*… I have unfortunately not seen “Rocky” yet. I know, slap me all you want, I don’t fucking care. I just know this song is amazing. I even chose it as one of the songs I have as homework to play on my trombone. It is going pretty well so far. But this song composed by Bill Conti is the infamous song that plays during that one scene I know of where Rocky is just working out like crazy to become the greatest boxer ever or something. I should probably see the movie…

Number 4: Theme song – The Rock (1996)

Here we have a movie that I have actually seen (and even reviewed here on the blog *Shameless self-promotion*) and that I really enjoyed. This silly action movie from Michael Bay is one of those action movies that not only had great action scenes but also showed some good emotion, mainly thanks to the amazing score by Hans Zimmer, Harry Gregson-Williams and Nick Glenne-Smith. And this theme tune is what really drives the score home and shows what music can do for a movie. Having parts with some genuine emotion in them, then more action-y bits and some more emotion really helps sell this as a great song.

Number 3: Main theme – Star Wars (1977)

“WHAT THE FUCK, STAR WARS NOT NUMBER 1, I’LL KILL YOU YA LITTLE BITCH!” said the moron in the audience who didn’t read the rules. But come on, “Star Wars” in the Top 3 is still really good if you think about it. I love “Star Wars” as much as the next guy, I’m not lying about that. This theme is as recognizable as can be since it’s been used in 6 official movies, 1 animated movie, 2 animated shows and more video games than I have fingers. So it is really well known. It will probably be used in the upcoming “Star Wars” movies as well and it will never lose it’s popularity. It will also never leave our hearts as it is part of all our childhoods, adulthoods and elderly years.

Number 2: Theme song – Jurassic Park (1993)

While “Star Wars” is John Williams’ most iconic score, I personally prefer “Jurassic Park” over “Star Wars”. At least when it comes to the “main theme song” department. While the “Star Wars” theme was one of the first themes I ever heard that stuck to me, “Jurassic Park” somehow holds a deeper emotional resonance to me. I don’t know why, maybe it is my everlasting love of dinosaurs that brings me back to the movie and it’s main theme song. But I think we can all agree that this song is beautiful and captured our hearts just as fast as the amazing visual effects of the timeless classic simply known as “Jurassic Park”.

Before we go to number 1, here are some honorable mentions (Sidenote: Reason they are honorable mentions is because of me thinking about them AFTER I started the list.
Pink Panther theme (1963)
Axel F – Beverly Hills cop (1984)

Mortal Kombat theme (1995)
Speak softly Love – The Godfather (1972)
Hedwig’s theme – Harry Potter (2001 – 2011)

NUMBER 1: Il Buono, il Brutto e il Cattivo – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)

Fuckin’ A! This is my number 1 pick for “Favorite Movie Theme Songs”. The epic, the classic and the badass theme from the amazing western “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”. This song is THE example that shows off the fact that Ennio Morricone is one if not THE best composer ever. Okay, to be fair there are composers up there at his level, if not better. But with this song and even the entire soundtrack to the movie he shows that he IS fantastic. The ocarina, the guitar, the percussion… I just love all of it! There is nothing about this song I dislike (Not that there was anything wrong with the previously mentioned tracks). I absolutely adore this song, let it live on FOREVER!!!

So those were My Top 15 Movie Theme Songs. What are some of your favorites? Leave an answer down below and let me know!

See ya!

 

Movie Review: The Lincoln Lawyer (2011)

16529

As much as I love thrillers, I have never been the biggest fan of courtroom thrillers. I don’t know, maybe I have never seen that many great ones. I’m not saying I hate every courtroom thing, I mean, I really liked “Primal Fear” and I do really like “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”, but I haven’t seen that many things that has kept my interest. But today we are taking a look at a courtroom thriller that people apparently liked. So let’s find out what my opinion is!

Ladies and gentlemen… “The Lincoln Lawyer”.

This movie follows defense attorney Mick Haller (Matthew McConaughey) as he is tasked to represent young rich man Louis Roulet (Ryan Philippe) in a case where Roulet has been accused of raping and beating a young woman up. But as Mick digs deeper into the case things stop looking so straight forward. Sound like a pretty straight forward legal drama, right? Well with that assumption you are correct, but at the same time you’re wrong. The plot has a few pretty decent twists to it that makes it even deeper and better than what it looked like. Of course none of the twists to it are as great as the ones in “Primal Fear”, but they are still really good. It was entertaining seeing Haller go through the case and figure stuff out together with his friend/investigator Frank (William H. Macy). I can also mention that there were a few moments throughout the plot that actually kept me a bit on edge, good job movie!

The characters were all well-written and well-acted. The character of Mick Haller was slick, witty, clever, really smart and just slimy enough to stay entertaining. And Matthew McConaughey played him perfectly. To be completely honest, this is probably the best I have seen from Ryan Philippe. To be fair, I have only seen him in pretty mediocre and even terrible things, so it was nice seeing him take on a more serious and well-written role. And I do think every actor gave good performances in this movie.

The score by Cliff Martinez is a score that I thought was great. It helped build suspense in a lot of scenes by being very sort of sneaky and not blast out at you and be stupid. There were also a lot of licensed tracks used in the soundtrack to help fit the style of the movie but also help set the mood for the Los Angeles environment the movie was set in. It also helps that the music used in the movie was for thee most part in my tastes and therefore helped keep my attention throughout with music that I could enjoy.

This movie is based on the first book in a series of books by author Michael Connelly. To be honest, I have never read the original “Lincoln Lawyer” book… I have actually never read anything by Connelly… maybe I should. But I can however say that this movie looks really good. It uses a lot of swift direction and camera work. I also enjoyed the direction of the movie with how stylized it is. I would even say that it is about as sylized as “Drive”. Now I am not comparing the two (Sidenote: I do however think “Drive” is the better movie of the two), it was just fun. It got even more fun when I found a few more things that connected the two and that is what I am gonna do now (Sidenote: My review, I can do whatever I want). Both movies are set in Los Angeles, both came out in 2011, both are stylized as fuck, both the character of Mick Haller and the character of the Driver have some kind of connection to car(s), both movies feature Bryan Cranston in some way and both movies have the song “Nightcall” by Kavinsky in the soundtrack. Enough of that, let’s move on.

This movie has been pretty well-received. On Rotten Tomatoes it has an 83% positive rating with a “Fresh” certification. On Metacritic it has a score of 63/100. Roger Ebert seemes to really like the movie as he gave it 3/4 stars. And on imdb.com it has a 7,3/10.

“The Lincoln Lawyer” is a courtroom thriller with a good and suspenseful plot, great performances, a great soundtrack, stylish and swift direction and some good twists. Time for my final score. And here we go. My final score for “The Lincoln Lawyer” is a 9,74/10. So of course it gets the “SEAL OF APPROVAL!”

Review of “The Lincoln Lawyer” is now completed.

For the ladies out there… Yes, Matthew McConaughey does take off his shirt in this movie.

 

Bad luck follows me like a stray dog… a stray dog that I adopt.

Surprise, people! I am back, before I should be back. Let me explain!

The other day I made a post where I told you that I would be in Rome for a couple of days and couldn’t make any posts here. Well as it turns out the flight I was gonna take was cancelled… TWICE! The first time it was cancelled and we found out we could take a plane the day later, I said “Fair enough!”. So we got to stay at a hotel right next to the airport for the night. Then late in the evening we found out (Sidenote: We as in my class, found out from the teachers who were with us) that the plane we were gonna take early in the morning was already cancelled too. So we basically said “FUCK IT!” and decided to simply spend the night at the hotel like planned but then go home the next morning. And so it went. I can also mention that the same evening we found out the second plane was cancelled we decided to go to the sushi bar they had at the airport to eat dinner, but it had just closed up (*SIGH*). Of course we got food that same evening at a burger joint they got at the airport.  But it seems like one domino fell right after the other. I can however say that I had one hell of a good time because of my classmates being fucking awesome! Now I will talk about some fun shit!

Since we couldn’t travel to Rome on thursday we had to spend the day in a decent way, but how? We traveled to Gothenburg (Sidenote: Yes, the one in Sweden and not the one in Nebraska) and spent the day there with a nice lunch at “Jensens Böfhaus” (Sidenote: It is basically a steakhouse) and walked around in different stores while also talking, laughing and even sometimes singing. Also, back at the hotel during the evening we played a round of “Cards Against Humanity” (Sidenote: My friend brought along his cards so we could play) and laughed our asses off. We were all happy and throughout I felt like we all got a lot closer. There is always a stream of light in the darkness I guess.

So overall I think the trip/journey was great even though it went as far from the original plan as it could. But the teachers said we might get to do this trip on a later date, they’re just not sure when. Talking about all of this just made me feel a lot lighter.

Thanks for reading, have a good one!

Movie Review: Rounders (1998)

rounders.

Poker is something that has fascinated me for quite some time. There are so many little things that can affect a round and not just luck like most people assume. Of course there is a little luck involved when it comes to what cards you get, but there is also a lot of strategy involved, mainly to know when to raise, fold or go all-in. Then you also need to be able to read a person to find out if they got a great hand that will win them the game or a hand that makes them nervous, gotta know a little about human psychology. But that isn’t important now since we are not playing as much as watching people play.

Ladies and gents… “Rounders”.

Our story follows young poker genius Mike McDermott (Matt Damon). He is retired from poker and gambling after something that happened during a game against Russian poker player Teddy KGB (John Malkovich). But now he lives a quiet life with his girlfriend Jo (Gretchen Mol), he studies law and he generally seems to have it pretty decent. Then when his old friend Lester “Worm” Murphy (Edward Norton) gets released from prison he has to get back into the world of poker to help his friend pay off some brutal loan sharks. And the plot is intriguing in that sense. It is a nice plot to see how these two work everything to try to get the money together to pay off these loan sharks. The problem however is that it would be even better if there was any genuine suspense in the plot. Believe me, I think the plot is great but I feel that it needed a bit more suspense. But it was pretty good overall.

The characters in this movie are all varied, colorful and really well-acted. But shouldn’t come as a surprise considering some of the main stars of the movie are Matt Damon, Edward Norton and John Malkovich. But htye all have personalities and they all fill their seats perfectly. I think my favorite character in the movie however might be Worm (Surprise, Surprise). Not only because he is played by my favorite actor (Edward Norton) but also because of his dry wit, quick mouth and overall “loveable asshole” style. And Edward Norton plays him perfectly! But I do in general think all characters are great.

The score was done by Christopher Young and really fits the style of the movie. A lot of piano in a sort of jazzy style was used to great effect to get the dry wit style of our two main characters and the poker. There were a few tracks that were also a bit more slow and calm but they were great too. There was also a good mix of licensed tracks in there that really worked for everything.

This movie was shot pretty well. I mean, John Dahl has never been known as a visionary director (Sidenote: I had never heard of him until this movie) but he knew how to make the movie look pretty good. Also, remember all that rambling I did in the beginning about how poker worked? Yeah, Matt Damon explained that in the movie in a similar way and I thought it might fit here. And just to make sure and not confuse you, this isn’t a comedy even if the promotional material make it look like that, this is a drama with a lot of dry wit and clever dialogue. Sound good? Great!

This movie was pretty well-received. On Rotten Tomatoes the movie got a 65% positive rating. On Metacritic the movie has a score 0f 54/100. Roger Ebert gave the movie 3/4 stars. And imdb.com has a score of 7,4/10 for “Rounders”.

“Rounders” is a movie with a good plot that could use a little more suspense, colorful characters powered by great performances, a really good score, good direction/camera work and some great dialogue. Time for my final score. Where the hell is it… oh there, under the poker chips. Oops. My final score for “Rounders” is a 8,99/10. It is a really good movie that is definitely worth buying.

Review of “Rounders” is completed.

I told you I might’ve been able to squeeze a review in before I traveled to Rome!

When in Rome…

Good evening my friends. This is Markus coming at you with another post, but this time a little different. It’s not a movie review, series review, “My Favorite Scenes” or “Recent Purchases”, this is just a regular sort of blog post. But this isn’t really a blog post in the sense on what I have been doing for the last couple of days, it is a small update of sorts. And what do I mean by that? This thursday, the 5th I will be going to Rome which means there will be no movie review this friday/saturday like you usually see on my blog. I might get one out earlier to try to compensate for that, but I won’t promise anything. Plan B for compensation might be that I get you two (or more) next week. But like I said, this thursday (the 5th) I will be going to Rome with my class and will get home during the evening of the 10th (Tuesday next week). So like I said, you will not see any bigger post from me then, I might give a small update on if I’m having fun or not from my phone, but I’m not guarantying anything. What will we do in Rome I hear you ask? We will walk around, look at artsy fartsy stuff and eat awesome food. I know it is awesome because one of the teachers going with us is from Italy and she says Italian food is great. My dad has also witnessed on the fact that Italian food is pretty great. Sooooo, yeah… that’s about it. There is really nothing else I can mention there. I just wanted you to know since there have been a pretty consistent basis when it comes to my reviews lately with most of them being up on a friday or saturday. Oh well, that’s how it goes.

Have a good one!
