Man on a ledge:


About a man fighting to prove his innocence. I rate 7/10.

Hugo:


Seeing the trailer, you'd expect some kind of adventure. It's more like a bad drama with a childish twist to it. After 2.1 hours of this you'll go... meh.... i rate 4/10

Hugo, it had to much grown up messages in it for it to be a kid adventure. I watched it to cuz of the trailer and Sasha Cohen Baron in it :D

Would have been much better if they had made it very dark (e.g. Pitch Black). I rate it 6.5/10.

Watched the chronicle,



What a total waste of time that was... 4/10. Basically combine Blair witch, A teenage drama movie and a single-accidental power movie and you get this.

Freeloader (اش خور)
The Forty-First (1956)



The plot: set in the Central Asian desert during the Russian Civil War. A White officer falls into Red captivity. A female soldier (Maria) -- known for her sniping abilities (with 40 kills) is tasked with keeping watch on him. The officer has important information, so the Reds seek to return him to regional headquarters for a robust interrogation. They keep losing men due to the harsh desert condition; when they reach the Aral sea, the detachment separates. Maria, two other soldiers, and the officer set sail (so as to reach the HQ faster), while the others stay on land. Two of the men are lost at sea, leaving just Maria and the officer. Normally very hardened and cold with men, Maria falls in love with the officer.

My rating: 8/10

I liked it. Some of the scenes were very nice, especially the desert scenes (which looked like a fantasy). The acting was good (especially by the lead lady), and thank God, they depicted Kazakhs as warm and honorable people.

Halalness warning: there is one scene that might make you uncomfortable. Meaning, there is nudity (no private parts are shown, and it's not in a sexual context, but still... just sayin so you don't come yelling at me later)

Where you can watch it

A French movie called Intouchables:



Drama Comedy, surprisingly very good... I rate 8/10. Based on a true story... though they replaced the Algerian with a Senegalese man.

I finally saw A Separation. Truth be told, it was one of the better Iranians films I have seen lately. It managed to capture many of the difficulties faced by Iranians today and it did so without being over simplistic and one-sided, as is often the case with social criticism. It was refreshing to see many of the taboos of Iran being addressed, like the clash of religious and cultural sentiments with the needs of a modern society (female labour, putting the elderly in retirement homes, divorce, migration and so on). Judging purely from a technical and acting aspect is was brilliant as well and it raised the bar for future Iranian cinema.

I'd like to hear your thoughts on the film too. I'm sure there are quite diverging views on it.

As have said before this is one of the greatest Iranian movie.
From a movie critical perspective, the acting is absolutely fantastic, One will recognize themselves in almost every dialogue, their emotions and actions is so live. While the plot/meaning of the film is so heartbreaking but so Brilliant.
What I liked best was how the director was successful to show that how many people/families that are stuck between two different generations (or 2 different generation way of thinking) and struggling with it. On one side they have their children and their future, and how promising and bright that is in the west, while on the other hand they have themselves or their older love ones who can not leave what they have been / seen / lived for so many years.

Avengers was great for another Marvel comic book based movie...

but now I want... "Black Widow" Marvel Movie...

jumping on the bandwagon...

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/04/black-widow-movie-scarlett-johansson_n_1477199.html

I hope that the fans' voice is loud enough and they want to see a Widow origin story, I know Marvel would be happy to entertain that. We've spoken a lot about it."

Johansson's Black Widow (aka Natasha Romanoff) first appeared in the second Iron Man film. In "The Avengers," viewers learn more about her relationship to peacekeeping agency S.H.I.E.L.D.

"You see a little bit about how Natasha joined and it's not that she's fighting for the greater good of humanity," the actress said. "She was almost salvaged by S.H.I.E.L.D. and so she's loyal to that group, to that agency, but only as sort of paid debt."
Respectfully & Abidingly,
Simple Bubba

Peace to You and Yours...
