-Batman “the dark knight“ is a Christopher Nolan’s film. The main actor is Christian Bale, one of the best actors of Hollywood, acting as Bruce Wayne. In the film, there are many actors like Michael Caine, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman, Aaron Ecknart, Maggia Gyllenhaal and Morgan Freeman. It is an action film.

-The editing team started work in Los Angeles, traveled to London and Chicago, and then back to London and Los Angeles. In London, the editors cut the film in editing suites outside the city on weekdays and worked with the director at his home on weekends. The director had also requested that the editing team keep Batman Begins online as a reference. The filmmaking team takes more time to focus on creating the best film possible. And, on the dark knight, they have created a Batman that is ready to soar.

-This movie has some great background music, adding to the suspense and thrill of the movie. While not a soundtrack someone may want to go to buy or download, it is definitely one that entices viewers to stay on the edge of their seats while watching the movie.

-In my opinion, Batman “the dark knight“ is an excellent movie, but it is worse than Batman “Begins”. The action is great, and the plot is deeper and engrossing. I applaud Heath Ledger as the real star of the show, as Batman’s most deadly enemy, the Joker.

In the movie the special effects, in the last scenes are incredible, when they make the terrible storm, to try that Truman doesn’t escape of the cruel true.
In this movie you have to analyze the simboligists too, for example the name of the protagonist TRUMAN that have the symbolisms of a true man, the director with his staff are on the moon of the set, that represented the feelings of the people, another thing is the name of the city Seaheaven that means sea heaven and the slogan of the city which is "Omnis pro uno" that in Latin means all for one that one obviously is Truman.

That movie makes you fell terrible because all the things that Truman have to pass to get free for that lovely prison that they created for him, but is a good movie to understand a lot of things.

The scenery of City of God is amazing, most of time of the film passes in the favela but sometimes are shown parts of the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro which is awesome, its beaches are nice with white sand and the blue water of the sea.

Respect the acting and the actor there is nothing to say, they are marvelous, most of the actors were from the favela in which the film was recorded, because the director had to talk with the boss of the favela which allowed them to shoot the film with the only condition that they will put people from the favela in the movie, which also helps to give more credibility to the story.

Morgan Freeman as Sloan

- Review:

Wanted (2008) is an action film which was directed by, the Russian director, Timur Bekmambetov, and stars by James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman. The film is an adaptation of the comic of Mark Millar.

The film tells the story of Wisley Gibson (McAvoy), a man who is tired of his boring life, which changes when he meets Fox (Jolie), who gives him the opportunity of revenging his father, who was killed. Fox presents him the boss of ‘The Fraternity’, Sloan (Freeman), who taught him the techniques to become the best killer and get his object; then, he starts to know who the people who were helping him are.

The performances of the cast were really good. Angelina Jolie played his character in a similar form as the other characters of actions film that she stared, but she is excellent. James McAvoy wasn’t very famous before the film, in spite of doing a very good acting. Morgan Freeman is a classic in this type of films, we can always see him playing the boss of some organization, he always played these characters exceptionally well and this wasn’t the exception.

Two of the most brilliant aspects of the film were the special effects in the action scenes and the spectacular sets. An example of the last is the huge textile fabric where the loom works, which is a very important element in the plot.
The special effects make the movie more intense, because it shows in detail the murders, using a lot of the resource of slow motion.

The film is excellent, because it has great performances and fantastic special effects and the story was really interesting, so I recommended it.

• James Garner as Older Noah Calhoun
• Gena Rowlands as Older Allie Calhoun

The film opens with an older man reading out of a notebook to another woman who is sick, a story between two young lovers; The story dates back to the summer of 1940 in Seabrook, South Carolina.

Noah (Ryan Gosling) is a local boy who works at the lumber mill and Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams) is a girl about seventeen years old, from a wealthy family spending the summer in Seabrook. At a carnival, Allie meets Noah Calhoun, first she doesn’t look him but later she falls in love. Her family doesn’t agree with the relationship between Allie and Noah, they think that she would be with a rich man. Over the summer, Noah and Allie fall passionately in love and spend every moment together.

Alice in Wonderland

Film: "Alice in Wonderland"

Genre: adventure, family, fantasy

Director: Tim Burton

Actors: Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonhman Carter and Anne Hathaway


“Alice in Wonderland” is a Tim Burton’s film based on Lewis Carroll’s book. It is set in an imaginary world where animals and flowers can talk and think. This award winning film is starred by amazing actressees and actors like Johnny Depp, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter.

The new version of this story starts when Alice is eighteen and not ten like we are used to, and she returns to the Wonderland. She feels that she was there before but Alice can’t remember. The teenager must face different adventures, full of magic and fantasy.

In “Alice in Wonderland” like in all Tim Burton’s films, we recognize an artsy film, focus in the costume design which is always fantastic. In this opportunity Tim Burton chose Colleen Atwood like his costume designer. Colleen explained that his costume design is divided in three parts: animated characters, the Wonderland and Victorian England. She said that she did a lot of research for creating the perfect design. Atwood also confessed that this film was the best of her life. In the other hand, Sony Pictures Image works was the responsible of the special effects and sets. Some famous artists, sets designer and specialist in Victorian England and in imaginary creatures collaborated with them in this work.

I am happy to report that Tim Burton’s new version of the Lewis Carroll's book is one of the best films in 2010. In spite of the challenge that has a 3D movie, this production won the respect of others. One of the biggest problems with 3D cinematography is the tendency for objects, not only to become smaller as they move away from the camera, but to lose their dimensional stability. Burton doesn’t solve the problem, but he adapts it to his subject matter. For these reasons and too many others, I think “Alice in Wonderland” deserves the golden Oscar.

Fast and Furious 5


Genre: Action
Author/ Director: Justin Lin
Characters/ Actors: Paul Walker, Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson

The Fast and Furious saga is back again for a new action film directed by Justin Lin. The main actors are Paul Walker, Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson. The cool cars are there, the beautiful women and the slick action too.

The plot this time takes ex-cop Brian O´Conner (Walker), Dom Toretto (Diesel) and his sister Mia (Jordana Brewster) and friend Vince (Matt Schulze) and places them in Brazil for a high-risk car boost. The stars of the first Fast and Furious movie are going to carry out a revenge on a criminal that made their life horrible. Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Sung Kang and Gal Gadot are just some of the famous stars that were specially inveted to take part in the film.

I have seen the whole saga but this last film stand out fom the rest, because of the action it has. Also the acting is really good, and you can see that there was a big effort from all the people that are involved with the film.

If you are a fan of the previous films you won´t be disappointed, because it is a very interesting and entertaining film.

Freaky Friday

Film: Freaky Friday

Genre: Comedy, fantasy and family.

Director: Mark Waters

Actors: Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis

Review: “Freaky Friday” is a comedy, fantasy and family film which is starred by Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis. It was filmed in the USA in 2003 and the film was directed by Mark Waters who directed other famous films like “Mean Girls”.

“Freaky Friday” tells a story about the bad relationship between a mother, Tess Coleman, and her daughter, Anna Coleman. They argue very often because Tess and Anna think differently about life things such as the way of dressing, boys, music, etc. Anna’s father is dead and her mother is marrying another man in two days. That night, the family goes to a restaurant to have dinner but Anna and Tess have an argument because Mrs. Coleman doesn’t want Anna to play in a concert the night before her marriage. The waitress gives them a biscuit, Tess and Anna eat it and the next morning a strange magic swap their bodies.

The acting of Lohan and Curtis is wonderful because there are not special effects in the film and you really think they have their bodies swapped. For example, when they wake up in the morning and realized that they are caught in another body; in the scene where Tess has to play the guitar in Anna’s body and she doesn’t know how to do it; or when Anna has to work as a phycologist as her mother does everyday and she always uses the phrase: “How do you feel with it?”.

The costume design in Freaky Friday is very important because it emphasizes Anna and Tess’ characters. It shows Anna’s rebelliousness when she wears crazy t-shirts in her mother’s body and the old fashion clothes which Tess wears in her daughter’s body.

I think it is a very good film because it shows an every day life situation mixed with some science fiction to express what a mother and a daughter feel about each other. It is a film which is worth watching because it is very entertaining and, at the end, it has a moral. It is recommendable for people of all ages.

Pulp Fiction

Book/ Film: Pulp Fiction
Genre: Thriller
Author/ Director: Quentin Tarantino
Characters/ Actors: Jhon Travolta, Samuell L. Jackson, Uma Thuman
Review: Pulp Fiction is a Quentin Tarantino’s film. His avant premiere was in 1993 and from that moment it turned out to be very important in history of cinema. The script was written by Tarantino and Roger Avary and won an Oscar of best script and the Palm d’or on the Cannes Festival.

Pulp Fiction is a Thriller. The film contains three interconnected stories of crime and intrigue that take place in a modern-day. One short film is about a two thieves, a man and girl, who stole a restaurant. The other short film is about a boxer who kill an other boxer in a fight and he has to escape. And the last short film is about two gangsters, Jules Winnfield and Vincent Vega, which have to kill a traitor. The lives of these seemingly unrelated people are woven together comprising of a series of funny, bizarre and uncalled-for incidents. All the details are executed to perfection.

The male caracters are Bruce Willies, Jhon Travolta, Samuell L. Jackson, Quentin Tarantino, and the actresses are Uma Thurman, Amanda Plummer, and others.

Pulp Fiction is the best film of Tarantino’s and is one of the best movies in the last twenty years. The perfection of the story, and the script are amazing. Pulp Fiction always will be a piece of art in the cinema.

Genre: Drama film

Author/ Director: Sean Justin Penn

Characters/ Actors: Emile Hirsch, William Hurt, Marcia Gay Harden and Catherine Ann Keener
Review: Into the Wild (also known as “camino salvaje”) is an American film written and directed by Sean Penn launched in 2007. The character is played by Emile Hirsch(Christopher McCandless), and William Hurt, (Oscar winner for best actor), Marcia Gay Harden, nominated for an Oscar for best supporting actress and Catherine Keener.
This movie was filmed in the U.S.A. and north of Mexico(desert, beach,…)

The plot of this movie, Christopher decides to leave his home and sell his things (car...) and travel around the United States; with no money. The objective of Christopher is arriving to Alaska.
The film unfolds with flashbacks, in which they are interspersed with part of his journey to his past, and thus learn more about the history of Christopher.
Emile work was exceptional and intense. The director filmed a very entertaining film.

In my opinion the special-effects are disappointing, but the soundtrack was the best because was wake for Eddie Vedder (the lead singer, composer and leader of the American grunge group Pearl Jam).

In many cases I see a Christopher running in different parts of United States, these part was very exciting, or the part could not get food in Alaska and was about to go home and could not cross the river.

A film is infused with an expansive, almost giddy sense of possibility, and transmits a pure pleasure and natural open spaces, fresh air and bright sunlight; although, in the solitude of the boy, sometimes I gave the impression that he was not alone. Knew they were behind the cameras recorded.

Actually, I think it should have been nominated for best film.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Book/ Film: Benjamin Button
Genre: Drama & Mystery
Author/ Director: David Fincher
Characters/ Actors: Brad Pitt & Cate Blanchett
Student name: Agustin Hinojosa
Class: 5º "C".

The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttton tells the store of a man who born as an old man and die as a baby. So his life goes in the wrong way. Although the movie is mysterious, it can be classified as romantic, because Benjamin Button finds his love in the middle of his backwards life.

The movie characters are Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett. The movie is directed by David Fincher.

The music to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was written by French composer
Alexandre Desplat, who recorded his score with an 87-piece ensemble of the Hollywood Studio Symphony at the Sony Scoring Stage.

The make-up of the movie is one the best in the whole movies; it makes people believe amazing differences in the different characters. For example when Benjamin appears as a young boy.

I loved Benjamin Button because combines mystery, fantasy and romanticism. It is an original story, and it is gripping during the whole movie. I recommended for those who love mysterious stories.

Twilight is an Amerian film genre fantasy romance directed by Catherine Hardwicke and based on the novel of the same name, which is the first of series of four books: “New Moon”, “Eclipse” and “Breaking Dawn” by Sthephanie Meyer. The film was filmed in Washington and Oregon in early 2008 and releades on 21 November in the U.S. and January 1, 2009 in Argentina.
The starts of the films are: Kristen Stewart as Bella Swam, Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen and Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black

It is a love story narrated by the protagonist Bella Swam, a 17 years odl moves to Forks, where her father, and meets Edward Cullen, vampire since 1918, has the appearance of a 17 years. She doesn’t know he is a vampire, but begins to suspect and investigate to find out. Bella is confident that will not hurt and realizes that she loves him.
The Cullen family and Bella play friendly game of baseball in the forest until they reach three evil vampires who want to kill Bella, but the family will protect her.

Vampires avoided the sun during the shoot to be too pale, but also used makeup to enhance the effect. Most shots were outdoors, and try to fix the faces maquillage wet and wet brush was difficult. They also participated in dance rehearsals with a choreographer.

The costume designer has been borne by Wendy Chuck, who made the costumes were immortal vampires who for many years and always wore jackets and shirts, in a more current as jeans, shirts.

There have been many vampires movies, but what distinguishes it, is its love story, that gets you.
The vampires in the story are not just a metaphor for what teens want, but can not. I found a wonderful film with a very beautiful and romantic history.
