Draft Day - Excellent tension throughout the movie - 8*/10

Draft Day is great. It's difficult to name anything that could have been done a little better. The role of the mother? A bit, yes. An ever so slight predictability? Maybe. However, the overall qualities are: great tension, excellent acting, solid setup, a fast paced scenario and an interesting story.

A must for any draft fan, a good movie for the rest.

Transcendence - Lots of flaws that break the experience - 6*/10

Transcendence is an interesting AI movie, but it contains a lot of physical and logical flaws. The special effects are great, the acting is good, but the scenario barely takes off the ground.

See it for the actors and the special effects and you'll be satisfied.

Think Like a Man - Nothing new under the sun - 5*/10

Think Like a Man is a basic romantic comedy with multiple stories. Predictable and stereotyped, it reuses all the old gimmicks of the genre. The acting is good, but often over the top for no good reason.

Shut your brain off and you might have a chance to be entertained.

The Company Men - An old subject laid out in a predictable manner - 6*/10

The Company Men talks about a subject that's been talked about a lot without bringing anything new set in a highly predictable scenario. Still, you can enjoy those big name actors each giving us an acceptable performance.

If you're looking for something calm.

Zombieland - A world of violence, laughter and good entertainment - 8*/10

Zombieland is one of the best well made comedic zombie movie out there. Great setting and intro, with a smooth scenario, interesting story and good acting.

For good violence and laughs. Not for sensible stomachs.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier - Much better than the first one - 8*/10

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is in with the other quality super heroes movies I've seen. It's scenario is a tad predictable and it doesn't bring anything new to the genre, but it's very well made. You've got plenty of action, excellent special effects, nice ambiance, good dialogs, some jokes and great pacing.

Great entertainment, especially for super heroes fan.

21 Jump Street - Kick ass fun all around, very surprisingly - 8*/10

21 Jump Street is great mix of parody, action, and teen absurdity. I think Channing Tatum really shines as a comedic actor because he's the kind of person everybody sees in a serious light, yet he doesn't take himself seriously. Difficult to imagine a better partner for such an amount of silliness than Jonah Hill. The result is surprisingly good, especially since nothing is taken seriously.

For silly fun.

Bad Words - Very surprising in all regards of the production - 8*/10

Bad Words is a surprising movie directed by the actor Jason Bateman. The story is simple, and yet, you get attached and interested by it right away; you want to understand. The scenario has a good pacing that keeps you entertained at all time, and delivers unusual twists in the plot all along. The three main actors are excellent and very funny.

A quality flick that's sure to get your laughs on.
