Title: Precious
Genre: Drama
Release: June 9, 2010 (DVD Sweden)
Plot: Precious is a heavily overweight black woman who struggles with an abusing mother and difficulties in school.

Ninnie: This is a really interesting story!

Victoria: Very touching ! If you usually cry to movies you will definitely cry to this one! 
Ninnie: Hm? Like okay, you might think it's slightly more touching than I do, but sure, it is touching and it won't leave you without feeling her pain.
Victoria: Yeah. What do you think was especially good about it?
Ninnie: The fact that it's based on a true story and that it feels really real. Bad?
Victoria: I can't think of much, but if I should mention something I guess that would be that there's not really a lot of "changes" or huge events happening, everything is very "even" throughout the movie.....? 
Ninnie: True!

Sum up: Interesting and touching story. A very good movie for those who likes movies based on a true story!

The Muppet Christmas Carol

Title: The Muppet Christmas Carol
Genre: Family, Comedy, Fantasy
Release: December 17 1992
Actors: Michael Caine 

Ninnie: It's funny, sad and exciting! I really like it! Although I think that the first version, of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol, you see is the one that you'll like the most. This was not the first one I saw there for not my personal favorite. Mine is definitely "Mickey's Christmas Carol". But still, it's really, really nice.
Victoria: Yeah I know what you mean. "luckily" (?) I can't remember Mickye's version very well (but I know that one is the only one I've watched before) so for me this one is special  I really like the characters in this version and how they make it funny with funny songs and so on....
Ninnie: Yes totally! If this is the first one you see, you'll love it! It's filled with Christmas spirit! If you know the songs you'll definitely "feel something" every time you sing them.
Victoria: Yeah I think it really gives you a spirit, which I think a Christmas movie should do... Can you find something less good about it?
Ninnie: Hm? Well I think that sometimes to much singing can destroy a movie, But then again it's Christmas and you're suppose to sing. And well of course I have to point out that for example when they're flying (it looks superduper lame and fake, but it's totally OK in this kind of movie. What do you say?
Victoria: I agree, well as long as the songs are nice it's ok, so I can't say it destroyed the movie. Not that I think you mean it that way anyway... But yeah, no otherwise I can't really think of anything. I think they made this one really good- a real classic.
Ninnie: No you're right that's not what I meant at all. And I agree!

Sum Up: Great Christmasy movie if you wanna get in the mood for the Holidays. It's good because it's both funny, exciting and sad, and if you're looking for a good Christmas carol and you haven't yet seen this one- see it!

Ninnie: 4,0/5
Victoria: 4,2/5

Title: Frozen
Genre: Thriller
Release: September 28 (DVD Sweden)
Plot: Three friends goes on a skiing trip and manage to get stuck in the lift at night and everyone has left the resort. No one will be back until next weekend. How will they survive the freezing cold weather, hunger and ... the wolves.

Victoria: Dude, I was so caught up in this movie, I could totally feel the pain they were in! So awful! (the movie wasn't awful, just the pain)
Ninnie: Totally! It was really exciting even though it didn't contain much action. Some parts were really freaky!
Victoria: Yes, my body like hurts from watching it, I almost panicked everytime something happened.
Ninnie: Yea, I have to say that's the best part of the movie, all the freaky parts were your own body can imagine how it would feel like, though probably far from the real feeling. Bad part?
Victoria: Hm. I guess the only thing would be that if you are looking for action you won't find too much of it in Frozen. It's a kinda calm yet horrifying movie. Otherwise I think I was too caught up in the movie to think of something bad. You got something?
Ninnie: No, nothing.

Sum up: Non actionfilled, yet very exciting and terrifying movie that won't leave you without feeling any empathy.

Ninnie: 4,2/5

Plot: Zoe decides to have a baby, but she doesn't have a partner, so she has to go through insemination. Just when she finds out she was lucky enough to get pregnant she meets a guy....

Ninnie: I have to say I'm surprised by how good it actually was. I usually don't like when singers does acting but I enjoyed it.
Victoria: Yeah me too. Although, I feel this way- it's a good movie, but I feel like there are already sooo many movies with the same story. Well, the insemination part, of course, isn't the most common story in a movie, but most romantic comedies are somehow... the same?
Ninnie: I hear you. It was entertaining for the evening though. I do believe a lot of women will enjoy it.
Victoria: Yes, I'm not saying they won't. I don't dislike it, I'm just saying it wasn't a special movie. So will guys enjoy it?
Ninnie: Hm? Maybe not so many but some will probably recognize what the man in this movie feels.
Victoria: Anything you want to add?
Ninnie: Nope.

Sum up: An OK and pretty entertaining romantic comedy made mostly for the female viewers.

Here's another clip! Go ahead and guess!




Title: Extract
Genre: Comedy, crime
Plot: Joel has his own company which he's planing to sell. But everything get's all messed up, lawsuit, a cheating wife and temptation at work.  

Ninnie: I have to say I'm surprised  over how entertaining this movie actually was.
Victoria: Yeah, I thought it was just gonna be this regular average movie (well it kind of was), but it was so easy to watch and like you said - entertaining for the mind.
Ninnie: Mila Kunis and Jason Bateman is two very good actors yet not too recognized for their performances and they were just as good in this one.
Victoria: Pros?
Ninnie: Well everything that we mentioned above and also that it was a very nice combination between comedy and drama... and crime. Cons?
Victoria: Seriously, I can't really think of anything, but by that I don't mean that it's a flawless, perfect movie. But in general I wouldn't say that there's too many negative things about it actually.

Sum up: Very easy-going and entertaining movie for people 17 years old and up.

Victoria: 3,9/5
Ninnie: 4/5



Knight And Day

Discussion: Victoria: I'd say a decent entertaining movie.
Ninnie: True. The excitment is on an average level.
Victoria: I definitely think people should and can watch it. Both Cruise & Diaz does an OK job.
Ninnie: I hear you! It's action from the start which is good.
Victoria: Who should watch it?
Ninnie: Someone who's not looking for the best action movie there is but still a decent one.
Victoria: I just realized I could easily compare this movie to another Action/Comedy movie - "Killers" with Ashton Kutcher and Katharine Heigl. Then "Killers" is def better.

Actors: Michael Cera, Alison Pill, Mark Webber, Mary Elizabeth WinsteadEllen Wong, Kieran Culkin,
Plot: Scott Pilgrim is datíng a girl, Ramona Flowers, and in order to be able to keep her as his girlfriend he must battle and defeat Ramonas seven exes.

Ninnie:Wow! This movie was amazing! It was so cool!
Victoria: Dude, yes !! Ask me if I love it and my answer is a three-lettered word.
Ninnie: Do you love it?
Victoria: YES!
Ninnie: I loved all the special effects with all the words popping up and things you know.
Victoria: Oh god, yes  ! And I've said it before but I love Michael Cera, he's just the most awesome actor ever (well to the extent of course). Was there anything bad with it? Or less good?
Ninnie:The only thing I can think of is that this is definitely not a movie that is suitable for everyone. Either you'll love it or you will hate it, sort of. This is not a very bad thing since it just makes it more awesome to the people who really like it. Okay really complicated answer, Ninnie.
Victoria: No, it's true, though. Very easygoing movie. I could watch it over and over again.

Sum up: If you're into games and have a kind of childish mind you will definitely enjoy this one. We think everybody should give Scott Pilgrim a chance and find out what side you are on!

The Cove

Title: The Cove
Genre: Documentary
Cast: Brook Aitken, Joe Chisholm,
Plot: A group of activists, that is led by Ric O'Barry, the famous dolphin trainer, travels to a cove near Taijii, Japan to reveal a shocking example of animal abuse and also to tell the people about a serious threat to human health.

Victoria: I must say I really like the fact that they made a movie out of this. And I hate what they are showing.
Ninnie: Totally! It's really interesting and you can learn a few things from watching this.
Victoria:  For sure! Do you find this movie/documentary boring or is it interesting all through?
Ninnie: I wouldn't say it's boring 'cause it's quite touching at some points. But maybe some information is kind of unnecessary, nothing you will think about or take in. What do you say?
Victoria: I agree. I do think they made it quite interesting all through it. So, I wouldn't say this movie is for everyone though. Like if you don't really care about dolphins or how people treat them you probably won't be touched at all, but if you do care I really think you should watch it, you will be touched.
Ninnie: Agree!

Sum up: So, I kind of feel like my last comment there was a bit of a sum up. Really touching story- if you care about living creatures, pretty interesting all through and a quite shocking movie.

Ninnie: 3,8/5
Victoria: 3,9/5

Title: Inception
Genre: Action, Crime, Mystery, Sci-Fi
Release: December 8th, 2010 (DVD, Sweden)
Actors: Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy
Plot: This movie takes place in a world where technology exists to enter the human mind through dream invasion. Don Cobb, a very talented thief is given his last chance at redemption which involves executing his toughest job till date, Inception.

Ninnie: I really liked the concept of this movie! The dream worlds they are creating is amazing and you totally recognize the structure from your own dreams.
Victoria: I must say this movie is freaking sick ! This is one movie that I've actually only heard people say good stuff about, and now I know why. It's such an interesting movie!
Ninnie: Yes totally, and not at all like other movies. It was exciting and you had to concentrate to be able to follow what was happening, but not in a bad way.
Victoria: Inception is a movie you should see for yourself and make up your own opinions, it's hard to explain what you think and what it is about. This is a movie in it's own category. So Ninnie, is there anything that is negative about it?
Ninnie: Um? I wouldn't say there is but since it is such a complex movie it might be a little difficult for some people to understand.

Sum up: A fantastic movie out of the ordinary. It is a must-see for the watcher who wants something to think about after finishing it.

Ninnie: 4,4/5
Victoria: 4,9/5


Grown Ups

Title: Grown Ups
Genre: Comedy
Release: February 2nd, 2011 (DVD, Sweden)
Plot: Five good childhood friends reunite when their high school basketball coach passes away. They are now grown up with familes.

Ninnie: I really enjoyed watching this. I love Kevin James, he doesn't even have to do anything to be funny.
Victoria: Indeed. As with so many recent movies I feel like I had my hopes up too high for this one as well. It WAS funny, but with a cast like this I thought it would me more of a laugh-out-loud-movie.
Ninnie: Yes, but I have been so disappointed with a lot of movies recently so I was kind of prepared to feel the same way this time, but I didn't. Even though I had my hopes up it didn't let me down that much.
Victoria: It's still a funny movie, I do like it. I think the story is good, and also true when it shows that "kids of today" don't play the same way as maybe one or more decades ago.
Ninnie: Totally! Best part about it is the actors/characters. They are really funny with their different personalities.
Victoria: Yes. I think everyone should watch it. It's not the best movie of 2010 but definitely entertaining!
Ninnie: Agree! I think it's at its best if you're like 20+.

Sum up: Funny movie with great actors and funny characters.

Ninnie: 4,2/5

Plot: The four best friends Adam, Lou, Nick and Jacob have all grown tired of their adult life. They go on a skiing holiday and after partying in the hotel's Hot Tub they wake up in the 80s.

Ninnie: You've been telling me for a while now that this is an awsome movie so I really had my hopes up. And well, it was really good don't get me wrong, just maybe not as good as you made me believe. Bad Victoria! Haha.
Victoria: See, what I've come to notice is that all the movies I've watched in the movies in The States a few months ago were much funnier then. It's a difference when watching them in DVD, I think. This is a funny movie- yes, but I remember it being more funny.
Ninnie: Okay sure. So what's good about it?
Victoria: Well first of all I like the whole concept of the time machine and them going back to the 80's! Second of all the concept that they could do whatever they wanted with their past- OR had to stick with the past that led them to their predetermined future.
Ninnie: Agree! There's something about this movie that I didn't like but I just can't put my finger on it. But all in all it's good!

Sum up: Funny movie that we recommend you watch with a bunch of friends. Dont't have your hopes up cause then you will enjoy it more.

Victoria: Tracy Morgan is so funny in this one! The whole movie has a lot of funny moments.
Ninnie: Yes true! This is not the ultimate action comedy  movie but definitely one of the better ones.
Victoria: Yeah. The story is pretty good and the acting as well. What did you like best about it?
Ninnie: Hm? Tracy Morgan!
Victoria: Indeed. I don't really have anything more to say about it actually. It is definitely watchable, I mean I definitely think you should watch it.

Plot: Jen finally meets the man of her dreams, Spencer. What she doesn't know is that she marries an ex "killer".

Ninnie: Let me just say wow. This is a perfect action comedy movie!
Victoria: It definitely is. Killers is like the face of the perfect action comedy (and romance) movie! If someone would ask me for a good (or great) movie in this genre I would totally say this one.
Ninnie: Yes. I laughed and was super tense at the same time. There were some really funny scenes. They really caught the "normal" life situation at the same time as something really exciting was happening.
Victoria: Oh yes. Both Kutcher and Heigl does a great job on the acting part. They are both really funny and connect really well...... and a plus for the female viewers: Ashton Kutcher is HOT!
Ninnie: Oh yeah! Any bad parts in the movie?
Victoria: Nope. Can't think of any. You?
Ninnie: Nope. I loved it!

Sum up:  A perfect action/comedy/romantic movie. It has it all and a little bit more. The perfect combination!

Actors: Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Ben Kingsley, Alfred Molina
Plot: The brave prince Daston decides to help a rival princess Tamina and protect a special (magical) dagger. This dagger has the ability to change and turn back time

Victoria: I don't really like"these kinds" of movies. I happen to think they are usually always the same, and that there are boring wars and conflicts going on all the time. But somehow this one manage to be a little different and for some reason I liked it.
Ninnie: I see your point. I usually end up liking these kinds of movies even though I think I won't. And this is not an exception. It was exciting from the start and continued that way 'til the end. It's not the best adventure/fantasy/action movie I've seen but it's definitely a good one,
Victoria: Yes. It was really exciting all way through. As the viewer you think that everything will be solved every 10min and then something else appears and just turns it back around again. It had an interesting story and the action parts were really cool.
Ninnie: Yes, I love his awesome "moves"! They're not really realistic but I was impressed anyway haha. So what's bad about "Prince of Persia"?
Victoria: I don't really have anything bad-bad to say about the movie. I'm not saying it's a perfect movie, but no, I can't really think of anything in particular that was bad about it. If you have anything, go ahead and fill me in.
Ninnie: Hm? No, I think I totally agree on that.

Sum up: A good adventurous movie. Cool action scenes and a pretty exciting story.

Date Night

Title: Date Night
Genre: Action comedy
Release: August 18 (DVD sweden)
Actors: Steve Carell, Tina Fey, Mark Wahlberg
Plot: Phil and Claire Foster is a married and pretty bored couple from New Jersey. When they finaly decide to go some place else on their weekly date night, they end up taking someone else's reservation on a restaurant, the Tripplehorns. This is a huge mistake and some very dangerous people are mistaking on their identities. Their romantic evening does not turn out as they planned, not at all.

Ninnie: This is a really funny movie. Love the actors and their characters in "Date Night"
Victoria: Yeah, both Carell and Fey are two great actors. Always hilarious in whatever they do, and they don't fail in this one either!   
Ninnie: Agree! The movie has a funny story and funny characters so it just can't fail. But were there anything you didn't like about it? And which part of the movie did you enjoy the most? Without spilling to much.
Victoria: Hmm.... Something I didn't like about the movie.. well, in that case I'd just say like random small unnecessary things about it, I guess- really nothing major or that comes to mind.
I don't think there is like one specific  part of the movie that I like best,  I just really like the way Steve Carell and Tina Fey act together. Every scene with them together is just always funny (and the movie is 99% only them.. so..). I liked when Steves character tried to be a tough guy- when he is obviously so not. Haha.
Ninnie: Haha yes, awesome. Also, I loved the awesome taxidriver.

Sum up: Funny characters, funny actors and a funny and exciting story. What else can we say, it's simply a very good action comedy movie.

Victoria: 4,4/5

Gentlemen Broncos

Title: Gentlemen Broncos
Genre: Comedy
Release: October 13th (DVD, Sweden)
Plot: Benjamin is a pretty average teenager who loves to write fantasy sci-fi stories, but he doesn't think they are good enough. He attends a Fantasy Writers Convention where the famous writer Chevalier is the guest judge . Benjamin later finds out that his story has been stolen.

Ninnie: Gentlemen Broncos has a lot of super awesome/cool characters. You can definitely tell that this is the same director as Napoleon Dynamite.
Victoria: Oh yes. And Nacho Libre. Two good movies. I laughed so much to Hector Jiménez who plays Lonnie. He's hilarious. In many ways it's not a great movie, but the characters and the awesomeness makes it funny.
Ninnie: Oh yes Lonnie Haha! Awesome! Yeah totally. I think a lot of people would ask themselves like "What kind of movie is this? Like whats the deal with it?" But if you like Napoleon Dynamite you will like this one too. It's a "special" kind.
Victoria: It doesn't have what I, personally, think Napoleon Dynamite has, but it's definitely in the same category and it has the same humor. I liked the style of the movie, and the soundtrack was pretty sweet too.
Ninnie: True, N.D is slightly better. So the story....?
Victoria: ... is good. Not very special, but it works and I liked Benjamins (the main character) writing and his ideas. What did you specifically not like about it?
Ninnie: Hm? Maybe the fact that it is a little lame if you don't have that kind of humor.

Sum up: Funny, weird and a pretty goofy movie.

Release: October 6 (DVD Sweden)
Actors: ----------
Plot: 8 year old Mary from Australia is a lonely child who decides to write to a random person in America to ask if babies in the US also comes from beer cans. 44 year old Max is the chosen reciever, who is as lonely as she is, maybe even worse. He suffers from Aspergers, obesity, anxiety and a lot of other mental illnesses. They continue writing year after year and learn about each others problems.

Victoria: I thought it was a cute movie ! And that it was made in clay was cool, kinda like Wallace & Gromit.
Ninnie: Yes I really liked that Marys story was in sepia and Max's black and white and some small colored details. It made it personal. What did you think about the story itself?
Victoria: The story was interesting, I thought they made it really good. This is not like anything (kinda) you've seen before- it's always nice to watch something different.
Ninnie: Yes true! Some people might find it dull, but I really enjoyed it. Laughed a few times and I was really sympathizing with them.
Victoria: Yeah. It's a weird yet very interesting movie, and I was really "stuck" in it and was interested in how it would end- would they ever meet and how etc?
Ninnie: Anything bad?
Victoria: If you're really tired it is very easy to fall asleep while watching it since it is very gray and slow in a way.

Sum up: An Interesting and different story that requires attention, which is worth it.

Victoria: The story blew me away.
Ninnie: Totally! And I cant believe how a 10 (about 10) year old could be such a great actress! Incredible!
Victoria: Dakota Fanning does a fantastic job- there's no doubt about that!  This movie is close to 2h30min, but I can honestly say it was interesting all through those 150 minutes.
Ninnie: Indeed! I love the way they've cut every scene and the light settings is great too.
Victoria: Yes, everything is so nicely made, the colors, the pictures, the actors and characters and the story. Man On Fire was requested by one of our readers and I believe I can say that I really loved this movie. I don't cry to movies, but if I would, I'd cry my heart out in the end.
Ninnie: Yes I loved it too. Victoria was there anything you disliked?
Victoria: Not really, to be honest. What about you?
Ninnie: Hm? Some might be disappointed that the action starts after about an hour, but personally I think it's fine the way it is.
Victoria: But then again- how often does the action start right away in a movie? Was the movie predictable?
Ninnie: No it really wasn't.

Victoria: Sum up: Great- double great- movie. Really touching story, amazing acting and there's no doubt about it- you should definitely watch Man On Fire!

Youth in Revolt

Title: Youth in Revolt
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Release: October 13th (DVD, Sweden)
Actors: Michael Cera, Portia Doubleday, Jean Smart
Plot: Nick Twisp, a teenage boy, who meets a girl and falls inlove. She wants him to be more of a rebel, which he's not. He creates an alter ego and changes his lifestyle drastically.

Victoria: The thing is I'm always gonna like a movie when Micheal Cera is in it (one exception- Year One). But I just love him. If Ninnie has a crush on the Adam character in the movie "Adam", I have a crush on Micheal Cera. Haha.
Ninnie: I hear you! Like if Micheal Cera hadn't had a part in this movie I would have thought that this was just a typical highschool American Pie kind of movie. But Micheal Cera changed my opinion.
Victoria: Yeah, I do think though- that even if Cera wouldn't have been in this one it would still be better than an American Pie movie. I just love Micheals ability to play such an innocent guy (kinda the way you "know" him), and in this movie I loved how he showed that he also can play a "badass".
Ninnie: The acting performance from the rest of the cast was nothing major and not very impressive, but not bad.
True. I really like this movie- I'm not sure if I like it this much just because it's with M.C, but I think it's a funny movie!
Ninnie: Yes I agree. Who should and who shouldn't watch it?
Victoria: I actually think that someone who's looking for an easy, funny movie should give it a shot.

Sum up:
A funny yet not brilliant comedy. Worth watching if you're between 13 to 30 years old.

Victoria: 4/5

The Runaways

Title: The Runaways
Genre: Drama, Biography, Drama, Music
Release: October 6th (DVD, Sweden)
Actors: Kristen StewartDakota Fanning, Michael Shannon
Plot: You get to follow Joan and Cherie from the beginning of their career, through the top and to the bottom.

Ninnie: An interetsting story actually, maybe a bit too much of a typical rockband story.
Victoria: True, it's always interesting to watch bios, in my opinion. This wasn't a great one, not bad, not just a "wow" movie.
Ninnie: Yes that's true! Acting?
Victoria: I think both Kristen and Dakota did a good job playing Joan and Cherie. I'd say Kristen did a slightly better job though. What was awesome vs awful about The Runaways, Ninnie?
Ninnie: Nothing was really awesome. But the good part; interesting story and over all good. Bad part; like I said pretty typical and not very very "exciting".
Victoria: Yeah, I know what you mean- over all I can say it was a decent movie, but nothing extraordinary. 
Ninnie: And yea right the music and the pictures are nice too.
Victoria: Indeed.

Sum up: This is not a movie for people who "dislike" and have no interest in female rockbands (from back in the days, kinda). But if you do it's totally worth watching.

Victoria: 3/5

Title: Invictus 
Genre: Drama 
Release: August 25th (DVD, Sweden) 
Actors: Morgan Freeman, Matt Damon 
Plot: The movie tells the biographical story of Nelson Mandela and how he, together with the captain of the South African Rugby team tries to unite the country.

Victoria: Well, I watched this one alone, so I guess I'll have my own discussion here.  I am not the biggest political fan ever, nor do I care much for the sport of rugby. But this movie does have something else than that. The story itself, and knowing the background to it makes it special. Morgan Freeman does an extraordinary performance of Nelson Mandela (what else can you expect? And who else would be more suitable to play this part better than just Freeman.).
Ninnie: What was bad and good about it?
Victoria: Well, the bad part is just personal for me, and that's the fact that it contains two of the things that I'm not all that hype about- politics and rugby. It is also a quite long movie, and although it is pretty interesting through out it all, it does feel rather long.
Good about it is obviously the acting and performance of Freeman. Matt Damon does a good job too.

Victoria: I think that this is a movie you should watch when you know you will REALLY watch a movie and pay attention to it, otherwise it won't be good at all.
I like the African music in it !

Dinner For Schmucks

(We failed doing our video review, so we'll continue typing our thoughts instead. Two security guards came behind us, and was going to lock the mall. Awkward situation.)

Title: Dinner For Schmucks
Genre: Comedy
Release: September 10th (In the Movie Theaters, Sweden)
Actors: Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, Jemaine Clement, Stephanie Szostak
Plot: Tim is about to get a promotion for his job, but in order to be successful he needs to attend his bosses "special" dinner. A dinner where everyone has to bring an idiot so they can make fun of them.

Ninnie: Superfunny! Steve Carell = Awesome!
Victoria: Goodness, yes ! I laughed 'til I cried. I'm already longing for the DVD release so that I can watch it again ! Hilarious movie with hilarious actors and characters.
Ninnie: Totally! I really don't know what else to say. Perfect! "Alan" from "The hangover" has a part in this movie, and he's so funny in this one too.
Victoria: What I really liked about it too, is that funny actors- from other movies and TV-shows- are in it- like you said. Alan was in it. Also Jemaine Clement and Kristan Schaal from Flight of The Conchords were in it, and one of the guys from another funny TV-show (The IT crowd) was in it as well.
Ninnie: It was funny all through it. You never got bored, and the situation in the movie got more twisted and hilarious for every minute. You just knew that this Barry guy would mess things up the more he tried to fix things.
Victoria: Right?? I guess I don't really have anything bad to say about Dinner For Schmucks- can you say something, Ninnie?
Ninnie: Hm? I'm thinking but no, nothing.

Victoria: If you like Steve Carell as an actor and you like  "The Office"-and-"The Hangover"-kind-of-humor you will love it ! If you can't stand him and his kind of humor, maybe you won't love it as much. But we definitely say it's an awesome movie!

Victoria: 5/5

Title: Watchmen
Genre: Action, Sci-fi, Mystery
Release: August 5, 2009
Actors: Malin Åkerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Jackie Earle Haley
Plot: Someone's killing all the superheros and is also planing to destroy  human life. Who should stop this "someone" if the superheros are all dead?

Victoria: Let me start off by saying I love the special effects.
Ninnie: Okay thank you Victoria you just stole my first line Haha. Kidding. It was an exciting movie, it's just that some scenes (flashback scenes) were to long, you kind of forgot what's happening in present time.
Victoria: I totally hear you. I didn't really get the hang of the complete story, to be honest. Not that I was completely lost, but still.
Ninnie: Agree! What do you think about the acting?
Victoria: No complaints there. No "Wow- performance" from anyone, but they were all OK.
Ninnie: Exactly, it felt like no one was really suitable for their part. They couldn't really live up to their character.
Victoria: Right. I must add, also, that I loved the soundtrack, Really nice selection of songs. Who should watch this movie, Ninnie?
Ninnie: Let me start by telling you who shouldn't watch it. Which is people who doesn't like super heros, who's sensitive with blood and "cruel killing" and  people who get bored easily.
When I think about superheros I automatically think about pure goodness, but in this movie it's not like that. And you don't get the "superhero feeling".

Victoria: So, Watchmen is a really good action movie with even nicer special effects. You should watch it if you really want to WATCH it, because otherwise it might be hard to follow.But really, it is a good movie!

Victoria: 3,6/5
Ninnie: 3,5/5

Title: Adam
Genre: Drama
Release: March 10, 2010
Actors: Hugh Dancy, Rose Byrne,
Plot: Adam is a loner, and doesn't really know how to be social. He has a disease called Asperger's Syndrome. He meets this girl, and he is "forced" into being around people.

Victoria:  It's a very "cute" movie.
Ninnie: Oh yes. I kind of fell inlove with Adam (not very serious) Hugh Dancy was perfect for this role. He did an extraordinary performance!
Victoria: I agree. About the movie itself- it wasn't all that exciting. A little slow. An OK story, but nothing magnificent.
Ninnie: I disagree with you a little. Maybe it was a little slow, but I was really caught up by it and hardly noticed it.
Victoria: That's because you were caught up with your love for Adam. Haha.
Ninnie: Haha, nooo. It was the story that really got to me.
Victoria:  It's an OK drama movie.
Ninnie: Wait, wait Victoria, let me just stop you for a second. I think you've forgotten how good and interesting it actually was. Because you seemed a little more into it just after we watched it.
Victoria: Hmm. Maybe. But wouldn't I have remembered it if it were that special- and again, it's not a bad movie. That's not at all what I am implying.
Ninnie: Well you fell asleep, maybe you forgot, haha. No, okay fine maybe I enjoyed it more than you. So the best and not so good part?
Victoria: The best was really the Adam character- like you said, he did a great job and he was really convincing. I believe the not so good part is the fact that nothing completely "tragical/awful/super exciting" happened.

Ninnie: Okay. Good drama movie, not the best. Great portrait of how a person could actually experience the world differently from a healthy person. Cute and watchable.

Victoria: 3,7/5

The Blind side

 Title: The Blind Side
Genre: Drama
Release: September 8th (DVD, Sweden)
Actors: Sandra Bullock, Tim McGraw, Quinton Aaron, Jae Head
Plot: This movie is based on a true story. Its about a homeless boy named Michael Oher. A caring family takes him into their home, and they'll do anything to make him feel like a family member and give his life a better start. 

Victoria: Really touching story. Great great acting- both from Bullock and Quinton Aaron!
Ninnie: Indeed! And I love the little kiddo, Jae Head. He's awesome. It's a really touching story as you said but I do think it was a little slow the last 20 minutes.
Victoria: If you're a "cryer" (in the sense that you easily cry to sad movies) I most definitely think your eyes will tear up to "The Blind Side".
Ninnie: Oh yes! My mum cried like a little baby. So, what do you think was bad about the movie?
Victoria: I guess the bad thing is, what you said earlier, that the last minutes in the movie was kinda slow. Who should watch this particular movie?
Ninnie: Every sensitive person. I actually think that everyone should watch it to learn a little about doing good deeds. It sort of makes you want to be a better person.  You should watch it if you want a good drama movie.

Victoria: Sum it up, people! Really good drama movie, very touching and filled with a lot of emotions, love and inspiring people.

Remember me

Title: Remember Me
Genre: Drama, Romance
Release: August 18 (DVD, Sweden)
Actors: Robert Pattinson, Ruby JerinsChris Cooper, Emilie de Ravin, Pierce Brosnan
Plot: A love drama movie about two young people with different family issues. They meet, fall inlove and struggle with their own and each others backgrounds.

Ninnie: This is a very good example of a good drama movie.
Victoria: Yes. What I liked about it is that it's not so "perfect and pink", it's a little darker and more emotional. I like all the relations in the movie- you could really feel them. For example, Tylers (R.Pattinson) relationship to his father- which it pretty nonexisting yet very strong..?
Ninnie: True. The actors did a really good job! I have to give heads up to Tylers little sister (Ruby Jerins)!
This movie feels trustworthy and gives a good picture of what actually excists in so many houses/families.
Victoria: Was there something you disliked with Remember me?
Ninnie:  Hm? Like it isn't the best movie I've seen but there's nothing to complain about, really.
Victoria: I hear you. I was just thinking about who should watch this movie, and I bet anyone who's on "Team Edward" will like this one. No, but seriously though, if you're looking for a quite emotional drama/romantic movie I'd definitely recommend it.
Ninnie: Totally! I've heard a lot of people saying that they didn't like the ending. But I did. You totally didn't see that one coming until the last minutes. I didn't like-like the ending but it was good.

Victoria: Moving on to a sum up. We definitely think this is a movie you should watch. It has a good story, good relationships and the actors does a great job.

Ninnie: 4/5
Victoria: 3,9/5

Vampires Suck

Title: Vampires Suck
Genre: Comedy
Release:  In the movies now
Actors: Jenn Proske, Matt Lanter, Diedrich Bader, Chris Riggi,
Plot: The Twilight Saga in a whole new perspective.

Victoria: Wow. I thought movies like "Scary movie" and similar had low humor , but I had seen nothing until I saw this one last night.
Ninnie: No, God, this was just the definition of low. I mean sure I laughed at some points but it was mostly 'cause it was that bad .
Victoria: This is a movie you should watch at 2am when you're tired and laugh at anything. You should probably have seen the real Twilight movies before you decide to watch this one, otherwise it won't make any sense- or you're not gonna get the "funny jokes" (ha!) in it.
Ninnie: I'm thinking, if you don't like the Twilight movies, and think they're lame, then maybe you'll enjoy this one. 'Cause they're making fun of everything about it.
Victoria: Indeed they are. What was the best vs the worst about "Vampires Suck"?
Ninnie: I think they portrayed the "real characters" good. Thumbs up for Beckas imitation of Bella. The bad thing is that everything was simply too much.
Victoria: Oh yes. You want to go ahead an sum it up?

Ninnie: If you like movies with really low humor, you'll crack up. 12-15 year old (swedish = "fjortis") you'll probably like it. As for "normal"  people it's a little bit too much. But with some funny parts.

Victoria: 1,5/5

The Box

Title: The Box
Genre: Thriller, drama, sci-fi, mystery
Release: March 17 (DVD Sweden)
Actors:  Cameron Diaz, James Marsden, Frank Langella
Plot: The Lewis Family gets a box with a button on it, from a mysterious man. The offer is one million dollar to the price of someones death . They have 24 hours to decide wheather or not to accept the offer.Will they push the button and what will the consequences be?

Ninnie: Let me just start by saying: Baaaad performance by Cameron Diaz. She's suppose to have this Southern accent but it all comes out like a mix and it feels like she's concentrating more on her accent than the acting part. None of it very good.
Victoria: I hear ya. I wouldn't go down too harsh on her though. Cameron Diaz will always be one of my favorite actresses, but I do admit- this wasn't her best performance.  Otherwise- about the movie itself: very good, I must say. Throughout the movie I kept thinking "goodness, what will happen? I have absolutely no idea".
Ninnie: Yes Cameron is one of my favorite actresses too, but disappointing in this movie. Hm? I wouldnt say it was "very good". It was exciting but I just didn't find it very good anyway.
Victoria: It was a little confusing at some points (or I'm just a confused person) but from time to time I wasn't sure wheather or not you were suppose to know what was going on. That doesn't neccesarily have to be a bad thing, it just makes you think. A movie that makes you think will always be more memorable (kinda...) than a movie that just passed you by......?
Ninnie: If you're looking for a good sci-fi movie this is not the right one. Okey I'm coming off all negative, which is not my intention. Because it is a good movie, don't get me wrong.
Victoria: You have to be alert while watching it, otherwise you'll ruin the movie - just a tip. Tell me Ninnie- what DID you like specifically about The Box?
Ninnie: Hm? Well the story is good. And in the end there's some good emotional choices to be made. Which I liked.

Victoria: True. I guess we have some different opinions about this one. We do agree on the fact that it's a decently good movie. The acting part is not as good as it could and should be. But it's worth watching.

Ninnie: 3/5

Case 39

Title: Case 39

Genre: Horror
Actors: Renée Zellweger, Jodelle Ferland, Ian McShane, Bradley Cooper
Plot: Emily is working as a social worker. She gets a case (case 39) involving a girl, whose parents tries all they can to kill her. Emily stops this from happening and takes the girl into her own home. She shouldn't have.

Victoria: Interesting story actually.
Ninnie: Horrible story actually! I totally HATE this kind of movie!
Victoria: I guess if you like movies like "The Exorcist" you will like this movie. I'm not a fan of horror movies, but I do get a little kick out of them. I WAS really scared when watching- I must admit.
Ninnie: Ofcourse since I left after half of it and you had to watch it alone, Muahaha. This is a really scary story and since I hate it I couldn't even finish watching it. So I would definitely recommend this to someone who wants a reeeeally scary movie. Or maybe I'm just lame.
Victoria: Yeah, you are a little lame. But you are right. The girl is mega psycho. I did not want to go out by myself after that movie- what if I would have met a girl like that?! Was there something you liked about the movie?
Ninnie: Great actors. I mean I liked the movie. It's just that I cant stand the genre. But it IS a good movie.

Victoria: Yupp. Indeed. Sensitive viewers, do not- I repeat- do not watch this movie. If you're into horror movies you should most definitely watch it!

Victoria:  4,3/5
Ninnie: 4/5 ( But for me 1/5)

I love you Philip Morris

Title: I love you Philip Morris
Release: August 18
Genre: Comedy, drama, romance
Plot: Steven goes from being happily married to a women to realizing he is gay. His new life involves fraud and constant lying to his new life partner Philip Morris.

Ninnie: Okey, really don't know what to think about this movie. It's good but still pretty "unnecessary".
Victoria: When I was watching it all I kept thinking was "what is this?". Jim Carrey in this kind of movie...? Nah, I don't really know about that. I didn't really understand the deal with this movie, to be honest.
Ninnie: Me neither. I mean at some points I thought "oh maybe it isnt that bad", but really its not my kind of movie at all. Did you think it was exciting V?
Victoria: I wouldn't say exciting- more... I don't know. The only word that comes up in my head is "weird". Haha.
Ninnie: Yeah, exactly. What do you think about the actors performance?
I normally like Jim Carrey- some people do some don't, that's just how it is I think. This movie was just wrong for him- or wrong for me to watch, I guess. The actors did an OK job, not really something that I paid much attention to. What do you say?
Ninnie: I agree about Jim Carrey. I'd say Ewan McGregor did a slightly better job. I believed him being a gay and loving man.
Victoria: Yes. I'm trying to think about something good to say about it, and I can't really think of anything- yet it's not that sucky, don't get me wrong. It's just very unspecial and weird.

Ninnie: Ok a sum up: It's not a horrible movie and it's not a great movie. If you'd like to see Jim Carrey in a different role, then fine, it's an okey movie. It's ok to see if there isn't anything else on TV.

Victoria: 2/5

The Book of Eli

Title: The Book of Eli
Release: September 1
Genre: Action
Actors: Denzel Washington, Mila Kunis, Gary Oldman 
Plot: A lonely warrior named Eli is walking to the west. He has a mission, that he doesn't even know what it means. He carries a book with him that he would kill to protect, but others would kill to get their hands on it.

Victoria: I have only heard from people that this is a really good movie, so obviously I watched it with my hopes up. It did take a while for the movie to become good......
Ninnie: But once it did, It was REALLY good. It was not predictable at all. It took different turns every now and then. The actors did a great job too!
Victoria: My point exactly. The first like half hour/hour was kinda boring, or not much happened. But after that- boom ! and I really enjoyed it. It was filled with action and it was really exciting.
Ninnie: Indeed. Some would think it's too cruel at some points but that's what made this movie so great!
Victoria: Yes. I'd say if you're looking for a really good action movie- this is what you need to watch. BIG plus, also, to the awesome pictures and how they have cut everything, and the colors etc. Really nicely made.
Ninnie: Yes it's incredible! And don't give up after the first half hour/hour 'cause it WILL get better, that's for sure!

Victoria: Sum it up ! - It's a great action movie. If you like a lot of violence and an interesting story we would really recommend it. It is not suitable for kids or sensitive viewers.  We'd say it's a perfectly great movie.

The Last Song

Title: The Last Song
Release:  September 8 (DVD, Sweden)
Genre: Romantic Drama
Actors: Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth, Greg Kinnear, Bobby Coleman
Plot: Rebellious teenager reunites/reconnect/stays with her father for the summer, where she meets Will. And summer doesnt go as she imagined.

Ninnie: Okey so this movie was over all good but it's sort of like the writer wants to put every Cliché scenario into the story
Victoria: Couldn't agree more. Some parts are really lame (though other people might find those parts very... good?) but there's definitely parts in the movie that are good. I want to give heads up to the little brother!
Ninnie: Oh yes we love him!
Victoria: So, Ninnie... Would you say that the movie was predictable?
Ninnie: Hm? Yes mostly I could definitely tell what was going to happen. I guess I'd say that was predictable. What do you say?
Victoria: Yeah, I feel the same way. There were never really one scene that shocked or surprised me.
Ninnie: What do you say about the actors performance?
Victoria: As I mentioned earlier, I really liked the Bobby Coleman, who played the little brother. He did great ! The dad was really good too. When it comes to Miley Cyrus, who played the main character, I'm not really sure. The thing is, I am not a Miley fan to begin with and it took me quite a while to actually start to like her. She did alright though.
Ninnie: Considering that she's been playing Hannah Monatana for a couple of years, you'd think she would be a better actress. Although she did pretty good over all.
So who do you think should see this movie?
Victoria: People who like really cheesy romantic drama movies. People who easily cry to movies will defintely shed a tear to this one. Might not reach out all that much to guys?
Ninnie: No definitely not.

Victoria: Let's sum it up, shall we. It's good movie if you ARE looking for a typical romantic drama, and like "the way" movies are usually set up. We would recommend this movie to everyone besides the ones that want to see a more unpredictable movie and wants a little bit extra of everything.
Ninnie: Yep, its sort of like the movie is missing that extra part that makes it memorable.

Ninnie: 3/5
Victoria: 3/5

Titel: Kick-Ass

Genre:  Action
Actors: Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Mark Strong, Chloe Moretz, Nicolas Cage
Plot:  Normal/Geeky guy having a dream about becoming a superhero and that's what happens.

Victoria: The movie really does Kick Ass!
Ninnie: Yes, indeed ! One of the best movies I've ever seen.
Victoria: I Agree. Filled with action both young and adults will enjoy.
Ninnie: It also contains humor which pretty much every one will like. Victoria, what do you think- if someone doesn't like comics, will they still enjoy it?
Victoria: Hmm.. My first thought was "Yes, of course", but I mean if you're really not into superheros and such, you might not be as interested in this movie as someone who does like comics would be. But it's still not a "cliché superhero movie" so I think most people will still enjoy it, yes.
Ninnie: Yeah, because it's like a good action movie too, the only difference is really that they have superhero costumes. It was a good movie from the start and all the way through. Victoria did you think it was a predictable movie?
Victoria: Well, it's been a few months since we saw the movie (April, legally in the movies in the States) so I don't actually recall my opinion on that.
Ninnie: Not me either. Though, even if it was - it didn't wreck the movie. I'm a big superhero fan and  I've dreamt about being a superhero, myself, so of course this movie is made for a person who secretly dreams about becoming a superhero.
Victoria: Totally ! Hm, when thinking about what you just said- this movie might not be as entertaining for people who don't enjoy superheros then.... ?

Ninnie: So to sum this up: If you are a superhero fan or ever had a dream about becoming a superhero this is a Must-See.
Victoria: There's a lot of fighting, blood, humor and excitment !
