The-Conjuring-Poster

On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind. The cultists have conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing they did will compare to the sinister conduit to the damned that is now… Annabelle. (Written by IMDB)

General Information:

Cast: Annabelle Wallis, Ward Horton
Director: John R. Leonetti
Written by: Gary Dauberman
Genre: Horror
Run time: 98 minutes
Release date: October 3, 2014

Review:

The other day I went to Grand Cinemas in Kuwait to watch Annabelle. It was my first time to Grand Cinemas I must say the movie theater was nice… but that’s about it. The movie started around 2:15 pm and ended at 3:30 pm if I remember correctly. What I’m trying to say is that more than half of the movie was censored. The censorship was extreme and unnecessary, I mean she was walking down the street then cut. She in front of her building then cut. She in the apartment cut. She hears a voice cut. Someone flies off cut. She is crying cut. Credits…

That was pretty much the whole movie its supposed to be an hours and a half but they only shown around 35-45 min of the movie. Its so not wroth watching the Cinema if you’re in Kuwait… I suggest you wait for the DVD release. I can’t rate the movie because I hardly watched anything from it and it would be unfair to the Director if I gave it a rate now. So that’s that.

Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces a battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom – and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well. (Written by Walt Disney Pictures)

Review:

I’m a fan of Maleficent, but I have to treat this as a movie so… First, I’m very glad that they made a movie about Maleficent. I hope they would make one about Ursula, that would be awesome. Back to the movie, the first thing you will notice is the amazing graphics and forest design. Also the verity of creatures living in The Moors. The second thing you’ll notice is how beautiful Angelina is as Maleficent. Then Aurora is born and you wouldn’t be able to ignore the babies cuteness. Probably halfway through the movie you’ll realize that no one had a decent conversion up until this point but who cares. The good fairies are funny.

Of course through out the movie they will show you some awesome battle scenes that by the end of the movie you realize that it was just another Disney movie… minus the music of course. The movie is amazing. I very much enjoyed it but that was exactly how it went. I do recommend it. I would give it a 4 if it wasn’t too storytelling based but it was. So enjoy the movie

Overall Rate: 3.9/5

Review:

I usually don’t like movies that are sad. Surprisingly I liked this one. I haven’t read the novel yet so this review is strictly about the movie. The movie began as a total cliche. Literally like every other romantic movie. I was disappointed. Then the movie took a completely different turn. the story was actually beautiful. I even got a favorite quote from the movie. It was that good. This is the first movie that ever made me wonder about how I actually feel about the movie that I just watched… if you know what I mean. Like there was tones of emotions there. Also the twist took me by surprise. I’m not even sure I can call it a twist I mean wasn’t that what the movie was building up to? Yet, still the ending made me wonder whether or not I like the movie. It was realistic and brilliant. Yet there was still that cliche aspect to it… but still beautiful. I feel like I’m just blabbering now so just go watch the movie, its good. Its really good.

Overall Rating: 4.95/5

Movie Review: The Great Gatsby

20130611-213444.jpg

Summary:

“The Great Gatsby” follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.

General Information:

Directed by: Baz Luhrmann
Based on: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Genre: Drama, Romance
Release date: May 10, 2013
Running time: 143 minutes
Country: United States, Australia
Language: English

Review:

I like this style of movies. They are so interesting no matter what kind of story it is. As the movie started I wasn’t found of the fact that Tobey Maguire is the story teller. Though I got used to it later on. The director was amazing I loved every scene in the movie. It was such a beautiful movie. Amazing story! I love the way the story unravels. I was also surprised to see Amitabh Bachchan in the movie. I’m so in love with the camera work and directing of this movie that I would see it again anytime! I totally recommend it. It’s a beautiful movie!!

Overall Rating: 4.5/5

Review:

After watching Fast 5 I was incredibly excited for Furious 6. Though the movie was a bit disappointing. I expected there to be more car racing, but there was more car chasing. Also, there was a lot of exaggerative action… Which I didn’t like. Not to mention I watched this movie in Cinescape kuwait, which means there was a lot of censoring. It made the movie kinda difficult to understand. If your a Fast & Furious fan check it out. If not don’t bother!

Overall Rate: 2/5
