Shawshank Redemption

This movie is one of the best I ever saw. When it starts, you’re locked to your television and can’t escape anymore. The Stephen King story is fantastic, the scenes dramatic, humoristic or thrilling. The only negativeness I can name is that at the end of the movie some aspects are explained more than necesarry. Less would have been more there. But hey, this way everybody can enjoy this breathtaking movie.

Shawshank Redemption is one of the best movies in Hollywood history. I give it a 9.5.

Pride & Prejudice

A great love story based on the Jane Austin novell. Keira Knightley is great, but she can’t make up that the movie is too short to tell the story properly. Fantastic filming though.

Pride & Prejudice is a great movie with one major problem: It’s too short. Therefore I give it a 7.5.

Tsotsi

Tsotsi is about a South-African gang leader. He is the personification of one million people without money and with very low chance of making a good living.

The scenes are emotional and heavy, but the storie is thin. I give it a 7.

Pirates of the Caribbean

This Disney movie is a very nice snack. If you want to relax and enjoy a nice movie, the Pirates of the Caribbean is a good choice. It has Johnny Depp in a “Deppish” role, a nice guy (Orlando Bloom) and a beautifull woman (Keira Knightley). Have fun!

Because it’s “just” a good family movie without something special, but it ís a good one, i give it a 7.

Crash (2004)

Crash is a movie with a mission. It confronts people with further individualization of society and some possible results that come with that. Major issue is that people don’t interact on a social way anymore with people they don’t know. Due to this, one uses prejudices which often are true, but also often are not. The astonishing web of story lines with their own characters that come together and continue separately is brilliant. The image impressive and the message is clear.

Go and see this movie! I give it a 9.

Batman Begins (2005)

The Batman movies have a bad reputation. Batman has something special, but the movies tend to disappoint. Christopher Nolan (Memento, Insomnia) was not scared to bring another disappointing movie and he didn’t! Batman Begins doesn’t start too good, but when the movies shreds forward, it gets and better. Katie Holmes makes sure it isn’t only about action scenes.

Despite the slow start, I give it a 7.5.

Galilidance

Last friday I visited the premier of Exile Within, the newest work of the dancing group of Itzik Galili. Five fantastic dancers present you a mirror on life by their expressive moves in solo, duo or group. I’m not a theatre-guy, but this work was great! Make sure to visit them when you can.
