Valkyrie– As you know, there were a dozen of attempts to kill Hitler, and this movie is about one of them. Based on a true story, Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg is a German officer who is on the mission to stop the Nazi while there is still some hope for the world. He puts in danger his own life and the lives of his wife and kids for the attempt to save the rest of the world. Seems that there is not much time left for Hitler to conquer the world and Colonel Claus join the forces of the German resistance. He is familiar with Hitlers plan called operation Valkyrie and brings it up on the table to end the Nazi regime.
The movie is great, Tom Cruise is in the center of the picture as usual. I am sorry to give a tip on how the movie ends, but if you don’t know that Hitler was not assassinated, you pretty much know the ending yourself since it is based on a true story. However, the movie keeps you in attention all the way till the end hoping that Hitler would get killed; and they do get really close… The movie shows how the famous leader that did so much to protect himself but still was vulnerable.
Valkyrie is full of action and is a great movie to see, even if you are not a big fan of war movies. Please watch the trailer below, however, it could’ve been done better. The movie has better parts.
Actors playing in this movie:
Tom Cruise, Kenneth Branagh, Tom Wilkinson, Carice Van Houten and Bill Nighy
We would highly recommend watching this movie, especially if you like war movies.
Transporter 3 – Jason Statham continues to play Frank Martin from the previous Transporter movies. As always, the movie is full of action. This time the job takes Frank to Ukraine. Starting in Marseilles, he drives Valentina – kidnapped daughter of the head of Ukrainian Environment Protection Agency to Odessa. As in the previous movies, the movie is packed with mobsters who try to kill the Transporter.
The beginning of the movies is really great, just as you expect it to be, however, it gets a lot worse. This is the worst out of all the Transporter movies. Jason Statham plays his role very well, however, we believe they could find a better actress to play the Russian girl.
Frank drives Audi in this movie. The car is great and as always, there are a few great car scenes. There is some action as well, not as much as in the first two movies though.
Here is a trailer for this movie and it shows the best parts of Transporter 3:
I think they don’t show too much of the girl in the trailer for a reason.
Jason Statham, Natalya Rudakova, Francois Berleand, Robert Knepper and Jeroen Krabbe
As for the recommendation, the movie is worth watching only say that you watched all of the Transporters. Other than that, it is pretty boring and we expected a lot more out of it.
An American Carol– the movie makes fun of liberals. The very American Anti-American movie maker decides to put an end to the 4th of July holiday. However, three spirits show up to teach him and take him to the journey of his life that will show him what America is all about.
The movie is pretty hilarious. The jokes are pretty clever and funny, this movie came out just in time. Never thought Kevin Farley would fit any role as perfectly as he did in this one. Would rent it as soon as it comes out – worth laughing throughout the movie one more time.
The trailer goes over some of the funniest moments, but doesn’t illustrate the idea of the movie too well. Anyway, after watching a trailer you would know if this is something that you would like to see:
Actors that play in the movie:
Kevin P. Farley, Kelsey Grammer, Trace Adkins and Robert Davi
We would recommend to watch the movie if you are in a mood for a good comedy.
Traitor– The movie is very interesting and make you think about political issues. If you like to see the things from different point of view and think after you watch a movie, this movie is for you. Roy Clayton from FBI is doing the investigation which results in the international conspiracy. Everything leads to a special operations officer Samir, who appears to be on the scene in the wrong time. The case gets really complicated and Clayton looks for Samir around the world, which gets complicated and slowly uncovers the truth.
This is one of the best movies that came out lately. Don Cheadle plays a muslim that gets in between the terrorists and counter terrorist organizations. The movie has some good action, however, the intelligent plot is what makes it great. All the actors are just amazing!
Here is a trailer that goes over a story, however, the movie has much more to offer:
The actors that play in the movie:
Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Jeff Daniels, Neal McDonough and Archie Panjabi
We would recommend to watch this movie if you want to watch something serious that would make you think.
My Best Friend’s Girl– This is definitely a comedy for the guys. The main character, Dustin, finds the girl of his dreams – Alexis. He is crazy about her and after five weeks together Alexis wants to take a permanent break. Dustin is heartbroken, however, he is not going to let her go. Instead, he wants to prove her that he is THE guy. To accomplish his plans, Dustin’s friend Tank is there for him. Tank, on the other hand, is the specialist in this. He helps the guys to get their girlfriends back by making the worst dates ever and helping the girls to realize how nice their ex really is. The problem is that Alexis is not just like every other girl. She knows that Tank is messing with her, that his rediculous actions are fake and that is where the story begins. Tank feels bad about falling in love with his friend’s girlfriend, but he can’t do anything about it.
The movie is rated “R”, has a lot of adult language and some nudity. If you liked “American Pie”, you probably would like this one. After reading some other reviews, seems that some girls get offended by the movie, and it is indeed, would be a better movie for the guys.
Here is the trailer that goes over a story and shows a few good scenes:
The actors that play in the movie:
Dane Cook, Kate Hudson, Alec Baldwin and Jason Biggs
We would recommend this movie to get some laugh and relax if you don’t mind the strong language.
Iron Man– This is another superhero movie, except that it is really really good. CEO of Stark Industries, Tony Stark, is in charge of building the weapons and missiles for the government. Tony believes that the best weapon is the one that you only need to fire once, until his convoy gets attacked and he is held hostage. The enemy leader tells Tony to build the best weapon for him and while working for a few days in the cave, Tony builds the iron armor instead. The armor helps him to escape and work on the better and improved version, which makes him the iron man. Tony’s beliefs also changed and he gets removed from the CEO position since he changed his mind about the weapons and doesn’t act in the best interest of shareholders. This gives him more time to work on his great idea, the idea that will change the world forever.
I am not a big fan of superhero movies, however, I wish I would’ve watched this one in the theatre. The movie is just great. It is full of great action, special effects and cool gadgets. The actors are amazing and the story line is not too bad.
Here is the trailer, however, the movie is much better:
Actors that make this movie great:
Robert Downey Jr., Terrence Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jeff Bridges
We would recommend this movie even if you are not a big fan of super heroes.
Mamma Mia! – Great musical comedy. Sophie is getting married and her mother, Donna, invited two of Sophie’s best friends – Rosie and Tanya. Both of them are special in one way or another, but the bride has one more wish. Donna is single and Sophie always wanted to know her father. She goes through her mother’s diary and finds 3 men, one of which may be her dad. Sophie secretly invites them to her wedding.
The movie is pretty funny and it is great to watch with a girlfriend/wife. It would definetely be more fun for the girls, but not too bad for the guys either. It has quite a few funny moments, great actors and a very well chosen music. Watching the movie just makes you want to sing and dance with a smile on your face. Plus, don’t you just want to see James Bond in a musical?
Here is the trailer that goes over the story:
The actors that play in this movie are just great, here is a short list:
Pierce Brosnan, Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Julie Walters and Stellan Skarsgård
If you are a girl, get the movie as soon as you can. If you are a guy, get it for your girlfriend and watch it with her. If you don’t have a girlfriend, this is a good musical anyway and see if you like it.
Fireproof – This movie has a good message. Firefighter Caleb is a hero to many people except for his wife Catherine. Catherine’s dad was a loving and brave firefighter and she tried to find somebody who would have the same character. They’ve been married for seven years, however, she feels that her husband doesn’t pay attention to her anymore. They keep on arguing about every little thing and get ready to prepare for the divorce, but Caleb’s father steps in to help. He offers Caleb to do a 40-day experiment that would change their relationship and Caleb promises his dad to give it a try. This movie has a Christian point of view. As Caleb becomes Christian, he begins to understand what true love really is.
Even though the acting seems to be a little cheesy at some points, the movie is actually pretty good. It has good Christian morals and there are a few heart-touching moments. The story line is great and keeps your attention throughout the whole movie. It has some funny parts as well.
Here is a trailer, see if this is something you may like it. We believe that this is a good movie to watch with a loved one.
Here is a list of actors that play in the movie:
Kirk Cameron, Erin Bethea, Harris Malcom, Phyllis Malcom and Ken Bevel
While this may not be the best one to watch in the theatre, we would recommend to rent it as soon as it becomes available on DVD. Also, this is a good movie to own and watch as a couple.
Miracle at St. Anna – the movie is about four African American soldiers. They are members of 100% African American 92nd Division during the World War II. This event takes place in Tuscany, Italy and 4 soldiers get trapped in a small village of St. Anna behind the enemy lines. They are not treated well untill one of them risks his life to save a life of Italian kid.
The murder at post office takes the story a few decades back and shows what it was like to be an African American soldier in WWII. It starts with the marble bust that Sam took from Italy, which came from the destroyed bridge. Sam believes that it brings him luck when he rubs it and carries it with him everywhere.
This is a great war movie. It has everything the war movie should have and shows what friendship, love and courage are. It also has a few violent and bloody moments, showing such scenes as German soldiers shooting kids and women. Definetely a good story but not for young kids.
Here is a trailer:
Actors that play in the movie:
Derek Luke, Michael Ealy, Omar Benson Miller, Laz Alonso and Pierfrancesco Favino.
Our recommendation: Watch it as soon as it becomes available on dvd if you are a fan of war movies.
Eagle Eye – This is a story about two strangers, Jerry and Rachel. They receive weird phone call from a lady that throws their lives and the lives of the people they know into some serious trouble. She uses the new technolgy to control their every step and manipulate their lives, making them the most wanted criminals in the country. Now it is up to Jerry and Rachel to figure out what is going on and who stands behind these events.
The movie is full of action and special effects that keeps you entertained all the way to the end. Things get very twisted and you get surprised by some unexpected actions. The plot is somewhat hard to believe in, but pretty good overall. Acting was great too. If you liked the couple in transformers, you would like them here as well.
Here is a trailer that shows a few good moments:
Actors that play in the movie:
Shia LaBeouf, Rosario Dawson, Michelle Monaghan, Michael Chiklis and Anthony Mackie
We liked the movie, however, there is too much buzz about it. Wait for it on DVD, unless you don’t mind the unrealistic plot behind the movie.
