Non-Stop adrenaline rush in theatres
Pompeii told the story of a city that did not have any form of a Safety Evacuation Plan. And if you think that imminent and certain death would stop Hollywood from creating a love story, you'd be wrong. It had a decent story, great 3D effects and gladiator fighting scenes, but the second half of the movie had me rolling my eyes a few times.
My Rating: 25/34
Reminded me of: Dante's Peak, Gladiator, Troy, and 300.
I believe movies that are based on true stories have so much more depth and beauty to them. Philomena was told so fantastically, there’s certainly no surprise that it received Golden Globe nominations for Best Picture and Best Actress after Judy Dench’s spot-on performance. It’s a beautiful drama, complete with both sarcastic and compassionate moments that takes you right into the heart of a mother's search for her son.
My Rating: 29/34
Reminded me of: The King's Speech and The Queen.
See you at the movies!
