Vampire Academy (2014) – review

WEBdl – english audio track

Long story short: a vampire princess is threatened inside of the vampire academy, but by whom?

Hogwarts seen at the Twilight… but it’s not that bad – of course, you have at least to like Harry Potter and the Twilight saga!

The only BIG problem – to me, at least – is that during the whole film, there is ALWAYS someone who’s talking… I mean, during the 104 minutes of the movie, excluding credits, I think that for only maybe five or six minutes there are shots without dialogs…

If you can live with this, you’ll find youngster vampires and their guardians that study in a vampire academy, just like normal teenagers – except they don’t know what is Facebook, Twitter and the like… oh, how lucky are them!

Acting is quite good – to be a young adult movie, of course…and you will find there unexpected actors; location are right, music – the few times you could hear it not covered by continuous dialog – is good enough; SFX are few but good.

At the end, if you like vampire movies, and you can stand almost two hours of teenagers that continually talk – and sometimes fight, too – then you could give it a try… you are warned!

My vote: 6.5/10

The Moth Diaries (2011) – review

DVB PAL FTA – italian audio track

Long story short: a new strange girl arrives in a single-sex school, and she’s troublesome.

Yesterday we (me and my wife) saw a trailer on TV about a movie that seems interesting… something with vampire, perhaps?

“Let’s watch it!”, she said… this often is a reason to NOT watch a movie, but you know? sometimes I’m good enough, so let’s give it a chance.

Well, what I must say? I thought to watch a vampire movie – we love this kind of films – but after half an hour, almost nothing happened… and, after that, few interesting things has happened… actors are quite convincing, but the story itself is not; SFX are almost non-existent; music – the few – is not that bad…

My advice: even if it’s not the worst movie I’ve seen, avoid to watch it, until you like boring and slow story about girls, alive and dead…

My vote: 3/10 (and I’m good today!)
