Driven to Kill (2009)


Steven Seagal

Ruslan is an ex-Russian mobster. When someone tries to kill his daughter at her wedding day he will seek revenge against his old nemesis.

I have the highest respect for Steven Seagal, because he is the only person who can kill 5 men in row with a golden credit card. Also he is the only person who can kill hundreds of people in a movie without sweating or change a face expression, because he is a cool guy. I do not know if he has a second expression to show us, but this is an action movie and you just need one cool expression either when you pee or stab someone multiple times with a rusty spoon.

I don’t know if I should recommend anyone see this movie. Russian mobsters are way out of fashion. Now the big thing is terrorism from the least expected people (see 24). Also it is out of fashion to be too much of a macho man when you have the law enforcement people to help you out and DNA to prove the one who was holding the gun. Also Seagal is twice the man he used to be ( in body mass) and sometimes his pronunciation reminded me of Silverster Stalone. I will give him credit though, because he is in better shape than he used to be in years.

I have to admit that I watched the movie for one reason only. His name is Steven Seagal. You messed with his daughter prepare to die.

Fast & Furious (2009)


Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez

Dom Toretto is a refugee and returns to avenge the murder of his girlfriend. He will work with Brian O’ Connor who is an FBI agent to bring down a drug baron. For that purpose they will do what they do best, drive unsafely fast and brake few rules.

This is the fourth of the movie series. The problems with that is that usually when the first movie is 100%, the second is 50%, the third is 25% and so on. Here, the first was a great movie, the second was rubbish, the third was entertaining with an annoying protagonist and the fourth is as good as the first. In the film industry everything is possible.

Michelle Rodriguez is advertised like she has a really big part, but she dies the first 10 minutes. It was surprisingly funny.

Other than that there was a lot of action, a lot of adrenalin, a lot of beautiful women and a lot of nice cars.

The City (2008)


Whitney Port, Jay Lyon, Erin Lucas, Adam Senn, Olivia Palermo, Samantha Swetra

This is one TV-Series that is supposed to be a reality or something and shouldn’t exist in the first place. If those stories are true then I feel sorry about these people, because their lives are so boring that I am sure they will become drug addicts if they do not kill themselves from boredom.

Firstly, the only thing they do besides their work is having coffee and chat or having dinner and chat.

Second, what they are chatting about is irrelevant, because they seem to repeat over and over again “OK!” and “Oh, Great!” and “Fine!”

Third, Whitney Port is having a relationship with a guy, but he is not really her boyfriend and she is “tasting” other guys too. So when she tells him that she had dinner with someone she didn’t know he became the prime male and proposed her to become boyfriend and girlfriend.

And last but not least, we know how lame your conversations are, but do not let everybody know that your guy might be cheating on you. It doesn’t look good especially for you. This is where “Everything is great and fine” should be used for. Plus, nobody really cares.

Ain’t that boring? Do something else. Like, the collage of yours can stub you in the back and make you look incompetent at work and then you can have a girl fight and pull each others hair. You can go for a hike and get lost in the woods and have to survive eating worms for a weekend. Of course one of you has to break a leg. And even better, have a car accident and leave the man behind so that he can come and avenge you slowly, but painfully. Damn, I am so good.

And here is the parody of the hills. So fun!

Bolt (2008)


John Travolta, Miley Cyrus, Susie Essman, Mark Walton, Malcolm McDowell, James Lipton, Greg Germann

Bolt is the star of a tv-series that never left the set and believes he has super-powers. One day he will leave in order to save his best friend Penny, but on the way he will realize that all that he thought of himself was a lie. A stray cat and a hamster will help him and he will finally discover what it means to be a real dog.

While I was watching this movie I wanted to squeeze all the characters. They look so adorable. And the story is going so well that I have nothing negative to say.

Scooby-Doo and the Samurai Sword (2009)


Casey Kasem, Frank Welker, Mindy Cohn, Grey DeLisle, Kelly Hu, Kevin Michael Richardson, Sab Shimono, George Takei, Gedde Watanabe, Keone Young, Brian Cox

The team visits Japan when Daphne participates in a fighting championship. There they find themselves against the mystery of the Black Samurai who seeks to return to life and take revenge. They will travel in various places in order to solve it and as always they succeed.

The story of Scooby Doo and his friends is the same over and over again, yet I cannot stop liking it. It is like watching something new and the fun is all the same.
