Made in Dagenham is a cheeky period drama about women’s rights in the 1960s. Specifically the equal pay strike that took place at a Ford plant in 1968.
Sally Hawkins plays the lead in this entertaining film based on a true story and is absolutely delightfully in her role. Hawkin’s character, Rita O’Grady, is too meek to rock the boat of the world she lives in but accidentally finds herself becoming the catalyst of a massive strike that will forever change the course of history and women’s rights Read the rest of this entry »
Even though it was widely successful in the movie theatres and its subsequent releases, it seemed that Drive kind of came and went from our minds as avid moviegoers and that’s really a shame. Even if you get your movie channels through places like www.directtelevisionpackages.com or the like, you might have noticed how it was available and then it just sort of disappeared. So how does a movie that was critically acclaimed like Drive just suddenly disappear from the minds of the general public and the film community?
Simple, really. Drive was unlike anything many of us had ever seen. It was unconventional. Sure, the actual story itself wasn’t something super remarkable but that wasn’t the real draw of the movie, it was how the story was told that really defined it from all the rest. You had a protagonist who rarely spoke and you didn’t even know his name, yet you knew everything about this character purely through their actions and his actions were both devastating and absolutely terrifying. His actions created a kind of tension not many of us have felt in a protagonist or a situation and that was what sealed the deal when it came to this movie’s legacy and reputation as a unique and exceptional classic. Forgotten or not.
I admit that I did not want to go with my friends at first when they asked me to watch X-Men: First Class since I have never been a big fan of those kind of movies. However, I am very happy that I did because I truly enjoyed watching this movie.
James McAvoy played an excellent job playing the role of Professor X, and he gave justice to the role. All the other actors and actresses in the movie also did a superb job, especially Michael Fassbender as Erik Lehnsherr or also known Read the rest of this entry »
I was not impressed with the second movie of the Twilight saga, which is New Moon. With the third part of the saga, Breaking Dawn, I was hoping that it would turn out better than the first two movies of the Twilight saga. I was not disappointed though because Breaking Dawn was definitely the best out of all the Twilight saga movies. I am not saying though that it is one of the best movies that I have ever watched since there were parts in the movie that I had to use my earphone to cover Read the rest of this entry »

Deathly Hallows part 2 is full of shadows and gloom, a long road from the light-hearted beginnings of the 11-year-old Harry we met in Sorcerer-s Stone. Like the characters, the movies have matured. Fans of the series need Read the rest of this entry »
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, the last movie in the Harry Potter series, is one of the best movies that I have ever watched in my entire life. I thought at first that the movie would not turn out great because other movies that I have watched in the past, that are based from a novel or a story, was not able to capture what was written in the book. However, the Harry Potter and The Deathly Read the rest of this entry »
