Prologue The Accountant is a thriller directed by Gavin O'Connor, which premiered in October 2016, being worldwide released the same month. It was written by Bill Dubuque. O'Connor is the director of Warrior, a movie of whom people still discuss right now. Ben Affleck is again at his highest, like he was in the Oscar winner Argo, which he also directed and produced. I really liked the movie, even if they say it wasn't accurate, and added this or that regarding the Canadians' … [Read more...]
Movies of all kind from an artistic point of view, reviews or opinions.
IT 2016 (I know, I have to spell it "I.T. made in 2016", to not be mistaken with 1990 It, a television miniseries) is a B thriller directed by John Moore and written mostly by the obscure Dan Kay, who seems specialized in the low rated niche of horrors. One of those is Pay the Ghost (2015), one of Nicolas Cage's $1 for the dozen movies. Additional dialogues were written by William Wisher Jr., who's most impressive contribution to date was something he added to 1984 The Terminator. It is an … [Read more...]
As the title suggests, this is a list with my favorite casino movies. My choosing criteria is based on movies where the main characters gamble, even if the action doesn't always happen in Las Vegas. I hope you will like what I wrote and the movies as well. 21 - first of the casino movies on the list 21 is one of my favorite casino movies ever produced. It is about mathematics and calculus more than gambling per se. It is a movie about winning with your brain and beating the ruthless Las … [Read more...]
I have always liked to play video games, but as a lot of us, I can't find enough time for that.

Can you spot it? Oh, and to not forget, I also like all these actors in a way or another, their acting, I mean :) Michael Fassbender Is the First Actor in My List Who Likes to Play Video … [Read more...]
One of my Top 10 movies of all times, The Usual Suspects is a cult mystery crime thriller released in 1995, written by Christopher McQuarrie, and directed by Bryan Singer. It doesn't have to make sense, actually, because it is too catchy on the whole. Everything started with and from a police lineup. McQuarrie made all up while working for a lawyer. The movie was shown first at Cannes Film Festival in 1995, out of the competition. After that it had a very reduced distribution in America, but … [Read more...]
Insurgent, the second installment made after Veronica Roth's "Divergent Trilogy", is not worse than the first, Divergent itself. Despite what other critics say, I liked it as well. I remember giving Divergent a 9 out of ten on imdb, which was a great rating. I wouldn't do the same with their rival franchises, "The Hunger Games Trilogy" or "The Maze Runner Pentalogy". With all the glam they have being very trendy post apocalyptic dystopia bloody "game shows", I like this one better. Based on what … [Read more...]
