|The opinions on Runner Runner are divided, to say the least. Some find it to be a super entertaining thriller while others think that it is just the latest Hollywood movie that has nothing really special to offer. If you consider watching it but you haven’t made up your mind yet, you should certainly find out more to decide.
Runner Runner tells the story of the poor graduate student Richie Furst (Justin Timberlake) who is swindled by an underground gambling tycoon Ivan Block (Ben Affleck). Richie goes after him and gets a lucrative job offer that he cannot refuse. At the same time, the FBI tries to recruit him in order to capture Ivan. Richie runs for his life trying to escape the two evils. There is a girl, of course, – Rebecca Shafran (Gemma Arterton). The movie is directed by Brad Furman with screenplay by Brian Koppelman and David Levien.
The plot of Runner Runner is intriguing even though it is not a masterpiece, as you can expect. The dialogue is smart even though the characters’ biography details are a bit too much. The action is fast-paced and there are a lot of unexpected twists and turns. There is great intensity especially in the drama of the young gambler who cannot get rid of its addiction no matter what. You will get a good taste of the paradise misadventure nuances in the movie as the drama develops with gorgeous exotic settings in the backdrop.
This movie does a superb job in revealing the corrupt world of gambling and the drama of its victims. There is the luxury facade, of course, which is quite realistic. There is a great contrast between the drama and the setting and this is one of the dignities of the movie. The love story is certainly not its strongest parts, even though the hero naturally gets his muse.
The performance of Justin Timberlake in Runner Runner is quite good. It cannot be said that he shines in the role, but his character is young and likeable and he certainly makes it easy to sympathize with him. Ben Affleck will certainly not disappoint his fans and his critic for that matter. He does a brilliant job in brining a self-made rich man’s character to life. One of the most impressive things about his performance is the emotional maturity which he gives to the character. Gemma Arterton might have done better. She is beautiful, but she does not seem to be right for the role.
You should definitely see Runner Runner if you want to watch a sleek thriller and have some time to waste.

|There is one thing about The Counselor that can be said with certainty – it is loaded with expectations. Every one expects brilliant performance from the star cast, intriguing and clever screenplay Cormac McCarthy and excellent work from director Ridley Scott. Will you get all this when you take your seat in the movie theatre or at home? Let’s find out.
The Counselor tells the story of a lawyer (Michael Fassbender) who is lured into drug trade by a promise for earning big money. The deal he is involved in quickly turns into a mess that he struggles to get out of. In addition to Fassbender, you will see a plethora of Hollywood stars including Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem and Cameron Diaz.
There is one thing which is undeniable – the screenplay is superb and offers a lot of action, intensity and depth as well as clever lines and funny moments to lighten the mood. Of course, there is violence in The Counselor but it is not the main focus of the movie. There are some crazy scenes which some would appreciate while others wouldn’t but it is all a matter of personal taste really. In any case, you will not get bored even for a second. This movie has everything in it from action and drama to comedy.
The dialogue is free-flowing and fast-paced. It feels great to watch the interaction between characters that seem to come from completely different worlds. It is true that there are some cheesy lines and a few clichés, but there is hardly any screenwriter that can escape from them even if he is seen as the brightest shooting start on the horizon. Generally, these somewhat uncomfortable moments will not spoil the good impression that you will get from the movie.
Michael Fassbender offers a great performance as The Counselor. He really looks as a man who is constantly on the edge of losing his mind while doing everything to avoid losing his life. It is interesting to see the transformations that he is going through. Critics say that both Fassbender and Brad Pitt can expect Oscar nominations for their performances in the movie.
You will certainly enjoy the performance of Penelope Cruz, although she deviates a bit from the typical characters that she plays. We see her in a much more mature but still very sexy role. Javier Bardem is amazing and will certainly surprise even some of his hardcore fans. Despite the low expectations, Cameron Diaz is surprisingly good too.
The Counselor is certainly a great movie, even though it may not match everyone’s taste.

|Even though it is not among the most anxiously awaited movies of 2013, Escape Plan is certainly worth your attention. With Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger playing the main characters, a lot of action-adventure fans who love their 80’s and 90’s movies will certainly go see this one. How about the average unbiased film fan? Let’s find out if this movie is worth watching.
The story told in Escape Plan is, not surprisingly, very simple. Ray Breslin, played by Stallone, is a structural engineer specializing in the design and construction of high-security prisons. He is wrongfully convicted and placed in one and has to use his skills to escape and find out who framed him. He is aided by his soulful inmate Swan Rottmayer played by Schwarzenegger and computer expert Hush played by 50 Cent. Breslin and Rottamyer stand against the prison warden Hobbs (Jim Caviezel) and the corrupt prison guard Drake (Vinnie Jones). The movie is directed by Mikael Hafstron with screenplay by Miles Chapman and Jason Keller.
Despite the simplicity of the story, the plot of Escape Plan is actually quite clever. The prison setting seems quite realistic and is really depressing with all the metal doors and the artificial lighting. There is a lot of action in the movie with the fight scenes somehow reminding of the best examples of the 1980’s. Surprisingly or not, there are not many special effects. The focus is more on the rough action and this is certainly something to appreciate given that the market is dominated by often ludicrous sci-fi movies with nothing more but special effects.
The lines are quite clever, even though many viewers expect the opposite. Another thing which may be surprising is that you can really see what is going on in the minds of the two opponents, Breslin and Hobbs. It is truly intriguing to see how they try to outplay one another in a race against time. There is a lot of tension in this movie with the dark notes dominating. It is Swan Rottmayer who slips funny lines and brightens up the situation a bit from time to time.
The performance of Stallone in Escape Plan can be best described as superb. He shows a lot of muscle, but the there is a lot of depth in his character too. You can literally understand how his mind works and what he feels inside despite the calm facade. The performance of Schwarzenegger is quite good, but not great. He manages to be somewhat funny, but we do not get to learn much about his character. Jim Caviezel offers a great performance as the smart and ruthless bad guy. You should definitely watch Escape Plan online.

|Even though there are a lot of intriguing movies in the fall of 2013, The Fifth Estate is the most widely discussed in the media. This is not surprising given that it tells the story of WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, played by British actor Benedict Cumberbatch. The group behind the website revealing state secrets has already issued a formal statement criticizing virtually every point in the movie and accusing it of complete falsehood.
The Fifth Estate is with screenplay written by Josh Singer and based on the book of the former spokesperson of WikiLeaks Daniel Domscheit-Berg and on a book about the group written by journalists David Leigh and Luke Harding. The movie tells the story or Assange and Berg, played by Daniel Brühl, who team up to create a totally free media platform which allows everyone wanting to reveal the dark secrets of governments and big corporations to do it efficiently and safely. They see the growth of their organization into a media influencing the entire world, but the real drama comes when the duo faces a moral dilemma on whether to make top secrets of the US government public.
There is no doubt that The Fifth Estate asks some of the most important questions of our time concerning media and their freedom and the policies of governments which are often not in the best interest of the people. It tells a lot about Assange and his character and about his organization as well. Given the fierce response from his group, it seems logical to conclude that the movie touches upon some sensitive issues to the leader of WikiLeaks.
The movie scores well in terms of artistic quality as well. The plot is intriguing while the action is fast-paced. There are elegant touches of suspense and drama which will certainly keep you glued to your seat. Director Bill Condon has certainly done a great job.
The performance of Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange is excellent to say the least. He has managed to recreate the tone, expressions and the body language of Assange perfectly. The physical resemblance between the two is amazing and this helps the movie to achieve great realism. We can really feel the drama and the intense emotions that the character is going through. The rest of the cast including Daniel Brühl, Laura Linney, Dan Stevens, Carice van Houten and Stanley Tucci offers super performance as well.
If you want to watch The Fifth Estate online that poses some serious questions about modern society, media and freedom, you should certainly go see The Fifth Estate. It is provocative as well as entertaining and this is what true art is all about.

|If you liked Machete released in 2010, you are certainly curious to find out what its sequel, Machete Kills from 2013, has to offer. It has a star cast for sure and director Robert Rodriguez is well known for blending different styles and serving a great specialty with notable Mexican flavor. Has the proven formula worked this time around? Read this review to find out.
The former Mexican Police detective now working as a spy Machete (Danny Trejo) goes on a mission to stop a mad revolution leader Mendez, played by Demian Bechir, and an arms dealer and terrorist Luther Voz (Mel Gibson) who plans to raise riots around the world. The spy is recruited by the US President played by Carlos Estevez. Those who are not crazy fans of Hollywood celebrities should know that this is the birth name of Charlie Sheen, who chose to use it for the movie to emphasize the Hispanic theme.
The plot of Machete Kills follows the foolproof formula for action movies so you cannot expect to be deeply impressed. However, there are some clever lines and funny jokes as well as the expected thrilling action scenes with lots of fighting techniques and special effects. You will certainly not get disappointed if you go to the movie theatre to waste a few hours of your time and forget about your worries.
Undoubtedly, the most impressive thing about Machete Kills is its cast. In addition to Danny Trejo, who is known for his unique fighting skills and uses pretty big machetes in the movie, Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen, you will enjoy watching Cuba Gooding Jr., Antonio Banderas, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Jessica Alba and Lady Gaga.
The star cast full of beautiful women is certainly the reason why many people will buy a ticket and watch Machete Kills online. You can expect very good performances from everyone with an emphasized comedy, dramatic or romantic appeal. The bad guys are really bad and ruthless. The good guys are ruthless too. There is not too much depth in the performances, but no one is actually looking for this.
It is certainly intriguing to see Lady Gaga playing a significant role. Her performance is best described as professional. We will definitely expect more from her the next time around.
Does this review recommend watching Machete Kills? You should certainly go see this movie if you want to see intense and somewhat brutal action scenes packed with special effects and good, but not great humor.

Liam Hemsworth plays the role of Adam Cassidy, a young tech star that wants to make a name in this world. From here, you should watch Paranoia online to see what happens next.
The plot of this movie is well written, and the director Robert Luketic makes a great job. Well, it is not that had when you have two Oscar nominees working for you, but this does not mean that he is not a good director. Considering the fact that the movie is not suited as an “action” movie, and it is a static one, he really manages to recreate the tension needed for such a movie.
If the two giants of cinematography are not enough to convince you to watch Paranoia online free, we will tell you that the subject is more actual than ever, as the things happening in this movie probably happen in the real world, especially in one of the most valuable industries today: IT.
The action is fast paced, the characters are in a continuous change, and Liam Hemsworth meets the expectations of playing a role along with two of the most important actors of the world. Even if you are not passionate about IT, you should watch Paranoia streaming only because it is a good display of acting that you can rarely see today. if you liked Wall Street, you will surely like Paranoia, as it is placed in the same buildings, the same city, debating the same hot subject of our world.

|What would be the common point for Earth and the fourth biggest moon of Jupiter? According to NASA, it is the possibility of life. Europa is the name given to this moon around the 70’s, but the astronomers back then were not aware about the possibility of finding life on this moon. It seems like space exploration is of interest not only for NASA, and in this movie, a privately owned company decides to send a team of astronauts to explore this frozen moon with huge potential.
We liked to watch Europa Report online because it is the first serious movie about space exploration since Apollo 13. Yes, we can compare it with Armageddon and Moon with Kevin Spacey as the robot, but this is somewhat different. if you choose to watch Europa Report online free, you will discover a different approach to this subject.
The special effects of this movie are great, and we can see that all the modern computer simulations were used. The plot is also interesting, because the astronauts would find what they are looking for a lot faster than expected. The problem is that life on Europa is not represented by some cute green aliens welcoming us with banners. It is something different, and you should watch Europa Report streaming if you want to see the conclusion of this movie.
Europa Report is a space exploration movie, and besides Christian Camagro, which you know from Twilight Saga movies as Eleazar, you won’t find notable names. However, the actors make a great job in recreating the thrilling atmosphere on Europa, making us aware about the possibility to find life closer than we expected. Now, the possibility of having some bad aliens right near our beautiful blue planet is not a pleasant one, but you should see the movie to determine the impact of such a great discovery.

|Lindsay Lohan was considered the golden baby of Hollywood, but as in the case of many other young actors, Lindsay lost herself into public scandals, drugs and failed relationships exposed on TV. The Canyon seems like a great revival opportunity for her, which might put her in the spotlights again, or which could ruin her career forever.
You need to watch The Canyon online not only because of the beautiful Lindsay, but also because it is directed by Paul Schrader (the writer for Taxi Driver and the director of American Gigolo), which is great at creating tension and great decors, and written by Bret Easton Ellis, the author of American Psycho. Even if the movie had a ridiculous budget, and we can estimate that Lindsay worked for free, the team managed to put up a great movie together, and you will be convinced about this is you watch The Canyons online free.
The Canyons is a movie about making movies, about the dark side of Hollywood and about people that want to do something different. Seeing it at the cinema might not be such a great idea, as we don’t know if you are willing to spend a few dollars for it, but if you want to watch The Canyons streaming from the comfort of your home, along with your girlfriend, is a good idea. Of course, only if she is not the jealous type, as you will surely slip some admiration sounds when you would see Lindsay in all those provoking postures.
What we liked about this movie is the soundtrack. Don’t rush to Google hoping to find some worldwide-recognized names, because you will be disappointed, but using Dubstep for the hottest scenes is surely an inspiration, and this would probably make the difference for thriller movies in the future, and this could be the reason for some to see this movie online.
