Gomorrah (Gomorra)

A really good Italian film about the Neapolitan mafia. Sometimes is so real, hard and drama that it seems a documentary. The cast make very well their work. I recommend this movie without a doubt!

My score: 9 (out of 10)

Die Welle (The Wave)

Excellent! A fantastic German movie that shows how the individualism and the lack of ideals can be used by somebody to manipulate the mind, the ideas and the facts of the people, and especially the young people in this case. The film is a good way to show that today it could be again very possible the autocratic government of a bloody and horrible dictatorship in our countries, like the communism or the fascism. I really enjoyed the movie as much as the great "Das experiment" (an other rather similar movie from Germany of 2001) and of course almost as much as the brilliant "American History X" (1998). Very recommendable.

My score: 9 (out of 10)

Burn After Reading

Yeah... the Coen's came back to their typical movies that I love so much :) This is a very funny and sometimes surrealistic film. The rhythm is good and some of the moments are really brilliant. All the cast of people are fantastic, especially Malkovich and McDormand, but everyone are great. A very commendable movie ;)

My score: 8 (out of 10)

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

Simply great. It's the accurate adaptation of the book. It has a good atmosphere, and even having into account that it shows some things that everybody already saw before in some other movies about the holocaust, the story is fantastic. The best part is the confrontation of the innocence faced the barbarism and the barbarism faced the innocence... and the hard and emotional blow of the reason faced the fanaticism. I really liked it. A very recommendable film.

My score: 9 (out of 10)

Cidade de Deus (City of God)

Simply BRILLIANT. In my opinion, the best Brazilian movie for years... A good story and very well made in 2002. It's amazing how it shows the way of life, the value of the life... all... It is fantastic.

My score: 10 (out of 10)

Vicky Cristina Barcelona

I love Woody Allen, but I was disappointed with Cassandra's Dream, so I'm positively surprised with this new movie. A fun comedy. The conversations are fresh and some of the "improvisations" of Bardem and Penelope (and specially the Spanish swearwords) are quite realistic, even in the complicated relationship of the participants! This is a cool movie.

My score: 8 (out of 10)

Before the Devil Knows You're Dead

Fantastic movie. It is a good mix between thriller and Greek drama. Sometimes you can feel that it is not the first time that you have seen the movie, but the story, the dialogs and the performance of the actors are really good. It seems classic cinema but with modern details. I recommend it.

My score: 9 (out of 10)

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

It is pure adventure, pure action, pure classic movie, pure popcorn aroma... pure Indy. Mr Lucas and Mr Spielberg have not abused digital effects and this film made me feel like a children again, but it is strange to see Indy in a different period of the thirties, because this time Indy is living in the fifties and this time the evil guys are the red army and not the nazi one, nevertheless you can enjoy a nice part of the taste of the other old three movies. I only did not like some important details of the story that I am not going to reveal here, and to be honest the movie is not as good as I was expecting... but I enjoyed it. Great ;)

My score: 7 (out of 10)

The Savages

A good film. Brilliant performance of Linney and Hoffman (as usual). Sometimes the stories with sad ingredients can give you good feelings... and this is the case.

My score: 8 (out of 10)

Die Fälscher (The Counterfeiters)

Fantastic movie. It is a different review about the concentration camps of the old Germany and the fight of surviving versus principles. Really good.

My score: 9 (out of 10)

Death Defying Acts

A very interesting movie. Guy Pearce makes a very good role but Catherine is not very credible in this movie. The movie is not very historical, but it is not bad.

My score: 7 (out of 10)

Vantage Point

The beginning is promising. But all falls down as the film is advancing... more and more ridiculous. And finally the movie is a disaster. And of course, it is very strange to see a lot of people with obvious Mexican faces, all of them filling the Castilian square of Salamanca. Pathetic ;))

My score: 2 (out of 10)

The Spiderwick Chronicles

It is an interesting movie if you like the fantasy films. The only problem is that when you see it, you feel that we already saw the movie before, because after Arthur and the minimoys, the seeker: the dark is rising, or the Narnia chronicles, and Bridge to Terabithia, this story, with children and creatures of fantasy, is not new. But at least the script is not bad and the effects are cool.

My score: 7 (out of 10)

The Kite Runner

Two words: wonderful movie. It is one of the best movies I have seen this year. The story is brilliant, and it let you enter in the story since the beginning of the film. The kids are amazing. And the film is a good example about the consequences of the war and the stupid and fanatic mentality of the islamist societies. The scenes of Kabul, and the Afghan mountains and deserts, are great.

My score: 10 (out of 10)


This movie was better than I thought. The idea is very original and the especial effects are great. It is a fun movie to enjoy an evening at a theather with a good system of image and sound.

My score: 7 (out of 10)

Horton Hears a Who!

This is a really cool movie if you have nephews to see it! They will be perfect to use them as a good excuse to enjoy this movie ;) The quality of the animation is superb and the story is not boring at all for adults. The animators are the same of Ice Age, but I think this is technically better made. The textures, the models and the movements are great (I am looking forward to seeing Ice Age 3 next year 2009 to check the improvements of this team regarding to the first and second parts).

My score: 8 (out of 10)

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Brilliant movie! I'm a total fan of Tim Burton... and this film is pure Burton cinema! I enjoyed with the old London streets and the dark and dirty environment of the XIX century in that city. The music and songs are fantastic, and Johnny Depp does not sing bad having in count that he is not a professional singer. If you like the Tim Burton films, I recommend to you this movie.

My score: 9 (out of 10)

10,000 B.C.

I had big hopes about this movie, but it is not as good as I would like. At least is a fun adventure, and you can enjoy the story and the amazing special effects with popcorn and coke... but that is all.

My score: 7 (out of 10)

Charlie Wilson's War

Really interesting movie. Tom hanks is fine as Wilson, but Philip Seymour Hoffman is the best of all the cast without a doubt.

My score: 7 (out of 10)

There Will Be Blood

A good movie... It is not very original, because the story could be a mix of several old films, but the performance of Daniel Day Lewis is fantastic.

My score: 8 (out of 10)

The Other Boleyn Girl

Natalie Portman makes the best work of the film's cast, but the full film is quite good. I enjoyed it a lot, and the movie is a fantastic example about how sex and passion (mixed with lots of ambition) can change the world, the history... and even the religion and the future of million of people, and how the consequences of those passional acts have influenced in lots of countries and lots wars in Europe for centuries. Nice movie.

My score: 8 (out of 10)

4 Luni, 3 Saptamâni si 2 Zile (4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days)

It is a brilliant Romanian movie. Disturbing, touching, oppressive, outrageous, realistic, and a descriptive and interesting film that shows the saddest part of the consequences of the horrible leftist dictatorships around the world. Some of the sequences (like the first part in the hotel room or even the dinner are brilliant). And the Romanian actress Anamaria Marinca made an absolutely incredible work. I recommend you this movie!

My score: 10 (out of 10)

No Country for Old Men

I saw this movie with high hopes (I love the Cohen's movies), and the story was really good (as usual). I think also the photography is fantastic... but I didn't like the conclusion of the movie. So, if you forget this point, the film is a good movie. I enjoyed it.

My score: 7 (out of 10)

30 Days of Night

A fun and interesting idea and a cool mix between new and classic concepts about vampires. Some parts are a little slow and a few of them are almost gore, but the rest and the special effects are cool! The ending is really amazing and great. A good movie to enjoy an evening with lots of pop corn & coke ;)

My score: 7 (out of 10)


It is a great movie. It is simply delicious and full of good feelings. The script is fantastic and Ellen Page was really wonderful. All the film shows how to face a big problem and difficult moments with an amazing and energizing positive way of thinking. The only inconvenient I saw is that some sentences and conversations are so witty!!... that it is not very credible for a 16 years old girl. But the result is brilliant. I recommend this movie.

My score: 9 (out of 10)

Rambo (Rambo IV)

I saw yesterday the premiere of the movie in Madrid with the old Sly, and the the war secuences are too much realistic (the most I ever seen), but the movie is really fun if you like the Rambo's films. Good people win... bad guys lose! He is Rambo!! ;)) I think, it is a not bad end of the series, like he already did with Rocky in 2006.

My score: 8 (out of 10)

Rabbit on the Moon (Conejo en la Luna)

Only one word... Brilliant!! I recommend all of you this movie. A good story of hypocrisy and corruption versus normal people. Fantastic.

My score: 9 (out of 10)

The Darjeeling Limited

It is a very unusual movie, sometimes surrealistic, sometimes comedy, sometimes drama, but totally full of symbology. Good vibrations even during the bits of sad moments. I liked it.

My score: 9 (out of 10)

Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (AVP 2)

Only a word... pathetic! It is the most unfortunate and ridiculous sci-fi movie that I have seen in a long time.

The best horror film of the last five or six years. It is brilliant!!
My score: 10 (out of 10)

Blade Runner

This is my favourite movie of all time! The final sequence of Batty, the Nexus 6 Replicant, with Deckard is absolutely brilliant!!: "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die."
My score: 10 (out of 10)
