Sex and the City (2008) – review

DVB – italian audio track

Long story short: sex and love affaires of four 40-some ladies in the Big Apple

OK, this is not the kind of movie I usually see, but you know… sometimes you need something completely different, so… I was used to watch the series some years ago, and I must admit I liked it quite much.

With this movie, something of the original series is lost… don’t know, it’s difficult to spot what… maybe the music, the comments… the story is interesting enough, but it’s too long for a single movie… it’s kind of stretched episode; but a story that could fill easily 30 minutes with a fast pace, is hard to fill 145 minutes… with this, I don’t want to say that it IS it, but just it is what I thought about.

The girls are kind and pretty, acting is good, but loughter were less than what expected; wonderful locations, music not so present as it should be;at least, there were some spicy shots here and there to keep interest alive until the end – I liked the naked redhead…

All in all, a decent comedy about friendship, sex and love stories that intersecate each other in strange and sometimes unexpected ways; a must-to-be-seen for all series’ lovers and fashion victims!

My vote:6/10

The Revenant (2009) – review

WEBdl – english audio track

Long story short: after a funeral of a soldier dead in Iraq, we discover he’s not dead as all were thinking…

Finally a black horror comedy! It’s basically a story of a friendship between an undead soldier and his best friend… so good, that when the soldier rise from his grave, his friend is the first person he thinks to visit!

The story is very good, and has an increasing pace, starting from a slow, almost boring beginning to an unthinkable end, with a lot of action and fun in the between!

The actors are not superstars, but the did a very good job, and, despite the supernatural facts, they are still believeable; music is good, make-up too; CGI effects are quite poor but frankly they are few and not so important for the whole story.

It’s very amusing for everyone who loves zombie movies in general, and undead, vampires… whatever… not reccomeded to the ones who don’t want to hear bad words, see bullets flying all arounds, litres of blood (hey, I live in a metric country!) – but, honestly, if you take away all these things from a movie, very little will remain…

My vote: 7.5/10
