The Fate of the Furious

Directed by: F. Gary Gray

Starring: Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Charlize Theron and much more.

It is the new adventures of Dom and his crew. This time Dom is being blackmailed by Cipher (Charlize Theron) to turn against his friends.

I wasn’t expecting much from this movie and still, I was disappointed. Ok, there was a lot of action, cars, and chases. But there was missing something. I liked more or less previous installments of the serie, but this movie is, in my opinion, the worst one. The plot is boring and there is a lot of poor dialogues. Even great cast does not help this movie.

I am really disappointed with this movie.

My rate: 2/10

The movie based on true story.

The movie tells a story of explorer Thor Heyerdal, and his journey to prove that it was possible for South Americans to settle in Polynesia in pre-Columbian times.

I was very skeptical about this movie. And to be honest it was a challenge to watch it to the end. The story itself is interesting, but I couldn’t feel the atmosphere of the adventure (and it is listed as an adventure movie). Overall I am glad that I saw it because I learnt something new (and as far as I read the film is credible in history).

The movie directed by Henry Selick and based on the book by Neil Gaiman.
It’s a story of a girl who moved to new home. Her parents are busy and don’t have a time for her. One night Coraline finds magic door that leads her to the parallel world where her Other Parents create a perfect home. Soon Coraline discovers that the magic world is a trap.
I must admit that the animation is amazing. Every character looks awesome and has so many details. I am wondering how can I describe the movie and horror for kids come to mind. It was nice to watch.

My rate: 6/10

Argo

The movie is absolutely amazing. Exceptional acting by Ben Affleck, John Goodman, Bryan Cranson and Alan Arking. The movie succeeds in keeping attention since beginning till the end. Really worth seeing

The story of Eliza Doolittle, poor flower girl, and Henry Higgins, rich phonetics professor. Professor Higgins agrees to teach Eliza how to speak correctly in English. Both will have benefits of it: Eliza should find a better job, and professor Higgins will win a bet.

One of the cinematic classics. The story is very simple but well written. Great acting, great music, and great choreography. I liked it, but to be honest I was bored sometimes.

“Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert

Publish date: 2006

Genre: Memoir

Book tells the story of a woman who after difficult divorce decides to take a trip to find herself. She divides her journey into 3 parts: Italy – Eat, India – Pray and Love – Indonesia.

It was easy to read. However, the story is quite boring. I found interesting parts regarding places I can visit. However, parts of thought process are not speaking to me. For sure the most boring part was India. I am very disappointed with this book.

My rate: 3/10.
