Reviews for nongreek movies (all together )

Most movies aired by nationwide TV channel. 

 
Mummy Dragon
A movie wih impressive graphics full of action and good plot. what ididnt understand is on how the emperor 's supenatural power degraded by the  time and was  as a typical  chinese warrior tby the end ,or i m missing something ? for example
Jet Li  once in a bad role !
3/5


Corelli's mandolin
An excellent movie I didnt know that it was a book untill my wife told me. A romantic story during the time of the 2nd war.Beautiful text as a real masterpiece and  hot moving story
5/5 realy  a masterpiece

Doom
I already have seen the Dhoom an indian movie aoubt 6 years ago and expected something really similar to it.Iwas totayl dissapointed that this  movie was a fiction horror with  human[?] beasts and crazy scientists killing themselves an anatomic medicine.
1/5

Baby's day out!
Ludicrus  but very funny  movie for all family that made my daughter laugh a lot   . It  is rated  here .OUt of logic was the  fall of the  bad people from the building without breaking ...their bones !Too cartoony
3/5 for the story 1/5 that  ??the logc

Resident Evil /Affinity
Here are sure many parts of this story  and our national TV chanel has only this part. Nice story  with intersting plot  and stunning graphics except the  bit disgusting ?? out of vilains moth in the end of the movie. Also nice girls
4/5

Ultaviolet
Can a storng actio nstory tame wih literary like interanal dialogue ?Surely not. This movie starting  full of action get in itsialst 15 miutes wih rather  boring self talk for the move standards. Mila sond very good in this movie As  Vee a killing machine in tis movie  is nvloved wi  the chase of a boy adn then  feels  very  motherly  on the end ina ttaly Marvel standards scene and colour  background  . Dont thin that this movie is a cartoon . It si jst the??? .
Acton 4/5 full of cheesy language stll ethe last 15 minutes
3.5  for all story

The mechanic  . 4/5

Interesting slow motion movie  in the start  and rather faster motion afer the middle of the movie. It could be better called 'the  vengeance' as most of the 1/3 th shown the fight of Statham with this counterpart against his boss . The funniest part was the killing of a so called savior as the  final scene of his counter part trying to fight his boss but follows his trap.


Trapped 4/5 ( Charlize Theron )

Very interesting and shocking psych thriller story of a woman with a diseased child trapped into the hands of a man wanting a vengeance for the death of his child caused by Theron's husband who is doctor  . But he failed to  gt it after her  husband took the story into his hands  Theron shows very young in this movie not older than 25. 


Desperado

1) 'A rather bad movie using good actors as Banederas and Hayek into a full gun killing movie.  ' a mean level human critic
2) 'fun and enjoyful movie from the expert  of making B movies of spaghetti action' a Tatantula way thinking man.
Just select  the best response. 



The best offer

One of the best movies seems this period. rather difficult to describe my feelings after seeing , this made feel me rather shocked wit the end of the story . A young and seemingly rich woman who was living into a room for more than 15 years  suddenly after a  old man loved her transforms into a  deceiver who forget immediately her lover's love?
A  rather unusual female  robot advised  this man that this girl has left her house for more times than he  visited This point  is something that none could discuss   in the imdb  reviews listing.
Hitchcock type psych thriller 
4.5/5


The net 2.0

This story is clearly based in the Net of Sandra Bullock filmed abot 10+  years ago but is not a sequel. . Period. The new story is even more complex  than the original and requires you to watch from  the start or you will lose much of it . A mixture of  full action , suspense , psych thriller and a bit of matrix. Definitely worth if watching for  its action although it could sound quite overwhelming for other aspects including the rather computer illiterate IT  consultant using hotmail to read her emails and the sudden cut off of her money the time she was on the airplane . The IT goofs  to what the story is supposed downgrade it much.
Also did nt forget that it has been  filmed in Instabul the well known once capital of Byzantine  . It gives  aa excellent setting for the movie although it is underrated in favour of the story.
And  surely wait for sequel! 
plot : 7    action:10 setting : 10 goofs : many
3/5 It could be better if the director could care more on the  story situation and the ingredients involved


 

 

Connors war 

A thiller movie  with lot of action but no humor as  with Bruce Willis. and OK movie for late hours with some psychedelic effects .Coonor finds himself after  blinded in a clash against gangster team  that his boss was really a  traitor
3/5


Elephant white
A movi produced in my 'teritories' namely  Tailand , Wached it after the middle and lost important part and  understood that the scenario is rather complex so  i 'lost in the translation'from the part i have not wtched  .  A  macho negrito  involved in assasinations etc  has a ally who is also his  envy working for a gang of  human traffic and prostitution, ie  mainly  girls.  A 'ghost' helped him  to save these  girls ...
3/5

Unstoppable
Two drivers stop a  driverless train form its crazy route on the lines of USA afer  numerous unsucessful attempts from the management  to stop it . Based in a true story .
Excellent movie with very  fast pacing and very fast holo camera movements  . it surely can  cause epilepsy to some viewers.
4.5/5

Pompeii 
An excellent movie . A romance story mixed with the  end of Pompeii  under the burst of the nearby  volcano 4/5

 The fifth element

A ridiculously funny movie watched in a local  TV channel of our city. Bruce Willis  was a relatively funny actor but most of the paradise inhabitants were a bit of gay making the movie really ridiculous/ seems as  a parody and insult to Starwars
1.5/5
Fun: 5/5



Pope Joan: 

a huge  movie of atleast  2 hours palyed during the greek  Holy week in a  nationalwide TVchannel. I liked to see this movie as the story is quite provocative It is unknown  if this is a real story or just a fable as  VAtican  wants us to know. thogh story is very interesting the setting or the  filming was  rather bad ie noninsistent that made me rather indiferent.
Story 4.5 filming etc 2.5

Chocolat : 

nice to seethis movie though more than 10 years later . a greek series  is based in this movie . As with Pope Joan this story  seems also provocative. This woman has come into a very conservative village selling chocolats  the  time the poeple fastened for the Easter. The mayor is over conservative  to the level that he guided  the young priest for the preach. this si the only point that made me laugh. How can a  mayor  do this?
Very intereting  story , good actors , flat result
3/5  for this reason


Barbie  spy quad.  

One of the  latest movies Mattel  mainly aimed for  young  girls to merchandise their new dollies  .
Barbie now  has  a new look comparing to the lolder  movies such as face etc .
This is a  hilgh action movie  with more than  the real  acrobatics with  all the girsls sounding a bit of  superheroes,  . Also  lots of  CGI generated   high tech /futiristic  gadgets and  two  robot   pets.
I feel she is as  like a female Bruce Williams  or James Bondwith some  humor especially in the start of the movie .
The story seems not so original though  there is some predictable subversion  in the middle. The scenario is rather poor and has many holes. .
The moral  is nearly the same in all barbie's  movies : groups work better than individuals.
3/5

Spy kids 

Can someone deem this movie for kids though it has been produced  with kids?  for me not.unless  you set it to 15 and over . the puppies are disgusting so i hate them. As i have seen mr Very Beautyful(Mr Machette ) i can think this comes fromm the same insane producer /senariowriter as with Machete . it is very sad that Klooney  and Banderas played in this funny and idiot movie
1/5

Shaun  the sheep (series!)

It is one of the  funniest   children serie s with the nicest scenarios  that can be loved also by parents. Shaun is an very clever  sheep that likes  sometimes  to fix many  problems with his mates and sometimes cheat the rather stupid dog.I thin that still hte farmer is  more  stupid than Shaun.
A funny  , intelligent and subversive series . KUdos  to the British producers!
TYhe only  i dont know  is if this was pro0duced with  puppets or it is GCI
4/5

Garfield(series )

And another series with nice and clever stories as Shaun. I know  him more than 30 years ago . As with other series of ih s time  Garfield series  is made wirth CGI . Nothing other to notice except that i like his humorous  stories and the good CGI .
4/5





Machete:
Watching the older movie of Machete 1, the machete kills seems of having nearly the same plot. The story has the same style with the first i.e.  very excessive killings  and broken legs hands and the same  over and over again , giving a surely  disgusting result as the umbrella  watch , though this sequel is more fun . Apparently removing the disgusting umbrella the movie s quite fun. 
  • Verdict from serious level 2/5
  • Verdict from the fun level 3/5




Nicostratos 
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1891942/
The first of movies I have seen from the new start of ERT on 11.6.15  featuring Emil Kusturica in a small island of Greece featuring a pelican who made up himself a tourist attraction in this island,after  being resurrected in the hands of a young buy  .The movie is very nice with excellent  pictures and  landscapes adn with a nice plot. The only bad is that the production all actors are Franch and not Greek

Verdict 4/5

Barbie  the princess power  (15)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4215332
This is possibly the last movie from the  Mattel company as for June 15 which was aired from the  nationwide  TV channel Star in greek language in two parts.  The movie was too funny in the fifst part  making us , me and my daughter  laugh a lot , but the second part aired the next day   was  more serious as it was the problem Barbie coped with  the bad guy of the story. Seems  quite 'naive' story
Verdict : 3/5
