3:10 to Yuma

3:10 to Yuma

3:10 to Yuma

Bought the movie and got it home by mail the other day. Sat down and watched it on Saturday evening together with my boyfriend.

It is a story about escorting an outlaw, Ben Wade, to the train that goes to Yuma prison, it leaves the town of Contention at 3:10 pm.

Of course this isn’t an easy task, and on the way a couple members of the original escort group is lost during battle, not only by the hand of Ben Wade’s gang, who naturally wants to set their leader free, but also by the hand of Apache Indians and railroad workers. Read the rest of this entry »

I am legend

Recently bought this movie on dvd. I got a special edition that includes the movie with an alternative ending.

So far I’ve only seen the alternative one, but I will watch the original eventually. When I’ve done so I can let you know witch one was the best, but I can say that I enjoyed watching the alternative one.

It’s a movie where mankind is once again threatened by their own doing, with few survivors. We are following one of them, Robert Neville, a scientist, who lives in New York. He was actually on the team causing the threat in the first place.

The threat this time is a mutated virus, that was launched as a cure for cancer. But somewhere along the way something went wrong, seriously wrong. Those infected by the virus becomes monsters, the bloodthirsty kind. Robert Neville somehow seem to be immune to the virus, and he is on a mission to find the cure. He has his own lab in the basement of his house.

Over all I guess the story could have been better, but it’s a good movie. With action.

Pirates of the Carribean 3 – At worlds end

Pirates of the Carribean - At worlds endMe and my boyfriend borrowed the DVD from my sister and watched it yesterday after our guests had left us.

It was a lot better then the second of the pirates movies. It still has that element of myth and fantasy but it does not seem as unrealistic as I thought it was in the second one. If you haven’t seen the other pirates of the Caribbean movies, there’s very little meaning in watching this one right now. They are all tied together, and to be able to understand the story fully, you need to watch them all.

I recommend you don’t read further right now if you haven’t yet watched the two earlier movies. There might be a spoiler in the text as I have a feeling I’ll be referring a bit to the earlier movies to explain the story line shortly. Read the rest of this entry »

Miami Vice

Miami ViceA couple friends had rented Miami Vice, and me and my boyfriend were over at their place and watched it with them. Couldn’t help comparing to the series, and in my opinion the series are better. The movie went on too slow, there were periods where nothing really happened 🙁

Colin Farrell just didn’t fit in Don Jonssons shoes as Sonny Crocket. And that silly mustach he has, looked rediculus in my opinion.
Jamie Foxx did a bit of better job to fit in as Ricardo Tubbs though. But who got the idea to put Barry Shabaka Henley as Lt. Martin Castillo? He has no resemblance what so ever to the orginal charachter. Suppose that might be the idea, but still… Read the rest of this entry »
