From the first songs you hear and greatest inspiration, represents her imagination fly in her evil has no place because we capces anything.

The sacrifice of a hero is priceless, willing to give a space of existence for others, can be an ordinary person can be someone that the pain has not become a villain, sherk movies and short circuit as demonstrated how impressive what this song, dond the hero is willing to all, to die fighting than to live kneeling Resistance inspiration Sagra.

Fame review

Posted : 4 years, 5 months ago on 4 May 2013 07:48 (A review of Fame)

The Fame breaks barriers, it is not something that comes from the heart, is to have the ability to go beyond what is being, is displayed, showing off and survive criticism, where the popularity increases efforts, but the FMA submitted testing our dignity to people, as if this were a war.

Fame becomes an intoxicating liquor, but which for more than this surrounded by friends, ... not everyone will be honest, it nadarasmientras the public will recognize, you will have no enemies and rivals and what is your talent by preparing what you tristemnete dera few victories are ephemeral.

You'll have to realcionarte with many people, looking in the fam everything is permitted and nothing forbidden, but if you cross the line the price will be very high demands it, your life, your family, what you love, fame is elitist, humilities admits not only use it to your benefit

takes your youth, and the price is required, you will not fear because you will consume, she is willing to war against the desolation and sadness, just order you to be even bigger, their methods are extreme, sometimes low and above bloodthirsty to avoid sudden drop.

People get too close to you for what you stand for, but will not be the envy and hate you, for you represent that which is plastic and false power, is a road where only goes ahead dignity mimso being one where will prefer cry alone to not see nig {a type of weakness.

It is a path that gives you 15 minutes, a path of heroes and villains alike consume, where dormiri sometimes be a luxury, where what is right or wrong have seen.,. Fame is a strategic partner, but charges his services at a high cost

Alien review

Posted : 4 years, 6 months ago on 20 April 2013 10:06 (A review of Alien)

A bold move, a short walk from the hand of a camera and handled brilliantly claustrophobic space, disturbing. Thus was born one of the greatest landmarks of science fiction: the ship Nostromo.
The first sequence of "Alien" is so overwhelming, that has the privilege of being one of the best starts we've seen server. With a simple transition score and impressive, what is achieved during the first five minutes, in which only find picture and sound, nothing is to invite the viewer not only to get carried away to a distant fiction, but because to join the crew itself, and pass well, just one more. Something marvelous and rarely seen.

His characters begin to appear and glimpse thereupon roles they will play in a ship where the biggest problem may arise will an eggshell alien, but in which subtlety is an element, and constantly redistributes these roles, getting control or need concepts as erected without too much force, but with enough intelligence to give play to those personalities. And so was born one of the greatest landmarks of science fiction: the Lieutenant Ripley. One of the first heroines of film history, and yet, a character that never rises to its conclusion with all the attention. In a stern and serious reactions and insightful, is emerging as the figure who, despite raising suspicions, knows how to handle the situation and give precise focus.

Knowing and Nostromo ship and its crew to complete conflict develops in a viscous, and even faster times of stress, succeed with a cool calm that one shrinks the very bowels. The landing on an unknown planet and subsequent inspection, are born with a pulse that few would be able to achieve, and make the impromptu visit to the creepy cave a unique experience, which moves between the silences and sounds with a master's undeniable , so that every step of the expedition do you remove yourself from anxiety, almost sensing that after tempering calm, the storm could come at any time.

Each plane change, every introduction to a new space, one is guided using both sound eerie soundtrack, and is without rumble or forcefulness, reproduced the atmosphere based on more or less mild tones according to this it required, stands with incredible precision making "Alien" portentous tape in which these qualities come to light as authentic teachers of the function.

Sleepy Hollow review

Posted : 4 years, 6 months ago on 20 April 2013 09:52 (A review of Sleepy Hollow)

Good performances, appropriate soundtrack, dingy and well done special effects, a great and gloomy atmosphere with winding village surrounded by mist-shrouded forests, bleak a picture that creates an enveloping atmosphere and sinister ... yes, here we have all the ingredients and the signature of good Tim Burton movies, so it will not disappoint its fans, as well as having a history as interesting and tasty pint (the attack of a mysterious Headless Horseman) for all one who does not know how to work the manager and his team.

The story he tells is really good, but I got the feeling there was darned things wrong, as if to extend the film with poor structuring of some scenes. For example, childhood trauma that haunts the protagonist in her nightmares is out of place, although the form of Irlo breakdown creates curiosity. The love story that is also intended to address surface, narrating it as something that was to occur but without delving.

A noteworthy aspect is how the protagonist focuses the murders, as initially posed as something mysterious, but made ​​by real people ... then lead to an interesting story from beyond the grave. Then the script starts to squirm and become bewildering, so that no one knows who is behind it all.

This may seem a little far-fetched, but not a problem to fiends suspense and things that look like what they are not ... I personally lost a bit with Dutch names of the characters, repeating some scenes but I was satisfied, enjoying the film more.

28 Days Later review

Posted : 4 years, 6 months ago on 20 April 2013 08:14 (A review of 28 Days Later)

Danny Boyle seems a great director, and although such disparate films do each other as Trainspotting and The Beach, I like his style when filming: imaginative and dynamic. 28 days is directed with skill and expertise, and the use of digital cameras added to an air documentary film quite sinister. Boyle has been able to reinvent this survival horror subgenre so crushed: and not zombies but infected rabid leaden movements do not hesitate to score a spring to smash heads. These features have been added to later films like the remake of Dawn of the Dead and the recent Spanish REC Jaume Balagueró. Furthermore the origin of evil is in a viral infection, so that the starting point 28 days is more or less likely. It has a great soundtrack and I think is underappreciated.

28 Days Later review

Posted : 4 years, 6 months ago on 20 April 2013 08:13 (A review of 28 Days Later)

These days finding a job that involves terror and situations that lead to reflection is quite difficult. Usually we find stories illogical or insane where paranormal beings killed five to seven young interlopers with more reasons known to the viewer to be in the wrong time and place, useless argument despite its variants and worn. This leads to apathy and predictability of scripts that flood the cinemas.

The box office success of "28 Days Extermination" I think that is due to a commendable justification, as to the existence of zombies in England. People spread by contact with infectious fluids integrity (quite original), in which the sense of survival is latent and everything important for the development of peoples (the material) is insufficient. The virus as an antagonist is not the only to evade, also unconscious, recklessness and ideas premature retrograde and conservation of the species by some characters.

With rooms full of desolation, stars sad, apathetic and little hope, formidably music adapted, dynamic scenes, a fascinating climax players a way to a remarkable career, we have an approaching reality.

Dany Boyle omitted the formula, with a smaller budget and achievement obtained was defined as success and credibility as a director, becoming distant from his debut (Trainspotting) and its failure to Holliwood (The beach).

The Exorcist review

Posted : 4 years, 6 months ago on 20 April 2013 08:11 (A review of The Exorcist)

We are without any doubt to the terrifying masterpiece of the genre, perhaps because the protagonist of the film is the same fear, the cause of evil, the fear, the devil. Based on a novel, based on true events, by William Peter Blatty, William Fredelink makes all a reflection of a theme that is and inherently difficult to raise and bring to the screen, but it gets Fredelink without falling too free exhibitionism.
We must highlight a cast of actors which are all superb, first Max Von Sydon who plays his character with almost startling reality. A Ellen Brustin this undoubtedly one of his best performances. A Jason Millar on the skin of a very complex and difficult to interpret. And Linda Blair, which I would say he did here the only good part of all his movies to come.
I think the film gives us a very accurate, theologically speaking, than it is an exorcism and what is a possession. For example indications Father Merrin doing before exorcism are very correct to the original ritual, "it is important to avoid dialogue with the devil, is a liar, and lies mixed with truths to attack, his attack is psychological Damian and very strong, so do not listen to him. "
It is a film that raises the issue of evil with a seriousness and theological correctness which is unusual in this genre which tends to fantasize. It is total agreement presenting the devil as the father of lies and is correct as we are presented the way they act, using people through obsession and manipulating memories and feelings of others to harm or deceive.
In the edition of the "Director's Cut", which I must say that the dub that got lost enough quality with respect to previous scenes are included, among others, very significant, such as when sitting rest Merrin and Karras Merrin on the stairs and in the key given in relation to the target of evil; "what you want is that despair, that we see ourselves as animals, we lose faith in the possibility that God could love us."
It is also worth noting the soundtrack and scenery that are portentous and provide a climate of fear like you've never seen. Definitely a masterpiece that gives us the right way and the wrong item of
