In The Valley Of Elah [2007]

In The Valley Of Elah is a Crime | Drama | Mystery movie and was released in September 2007. Having three acclaimed casts in the setting would cause overlapping clatter of roles when not managed well, however, this film was finely directed and organized. And, let's say - did bring a nice dramatic movie.

Hank (Jones) was impressive in his role as a father and as a former military policeman were emotions battles against wit. Emily (Theron) also did very well, honestly, that was the kind of detective we should have, and Joan (Sarandon) added heavily to the elegiac of the scenes. In summary, they were magnificent in every role portrayed.

What this movie failed is that some twists seemed to be forced to be realized. Like how Mike, Hank's son, would portray the message he had, and the brutality of war brings in on people. Though limited, if none, political views were showed the plot was properly aligned to series of events to get the truth in the expense of pain, grief, and to some point denial.

This film was nominated and won several awards like Academy Awards, Prism Awards, Satellite Awards, Venice Film Festival, and many more. A very nice movie indeed. I'll have a 7/10 rating for this film.

The Blind Side [2009]

The Blind Side is a Biography | Drama | Family | Sport movie that was released in November 2009. A story of an orphaned guy with no one understood him, sought refuge in school. Being meek and inferior to others made him lonely and with huge physique scares bullies as well as friends away. However, this hinder him not to be recognized by a schoolmate of him that happened to have a mother that gave him a chance to change. Being adopted in a family who loved American Football well, he began motivated to be a sport star.

Sandra played a really nice role here that fits her characteristics. The little brother did well of a supporting actor. Big Mike did good too, but needs more convincing.

Anyway, what this movie failed is that most of the scenes were of the positive side of the story and less with the other side. Like, how he was adopting to the school and otherwise. How the family accepted him was not well elaborated. Maybe to shorten the film to the ideal viewing time. But i admired the flawlessness of the kindhearted the family had, where only a few could do that, even rare in the level from their social status.

Sometimes, it's nice to have a Big Brother - not the TV reality show. Came to think of it when both of you play American Football, he's the line backer then you'll be the running back, here comes the block, here comes the run, and a touchdown!!! LOL..

The movie has been nominated and won several awards like Academy Awards, Black Reel Awards, Golden Globes, MTV Movie Awards, and many more. This is a great movie and is highly recommended for this movie genre. I'll have an 8/10 rating for the film.

From Paris With Love [2010]

From Paris With Love is an Action | Crime | Thriller movie that was released in February 2010. This action-filled movie quite had a simple storyline of a couple of agents trying to stop a terrorist attack in a public area, this time it's Paris - the one with the famous tower.

The tandem between John and Jonathan was effective. The novice, egoistic and ambitious James (Meyers) was trying to cope with the seasoned, cranky and freaky Charlie (Travolta).

What this film failed is that when gathering information to uncover the attack, the source would often be the downtown gang's alley, where drugs, money, and illegals are usually located. It may seem to be very common for a scene.

This is a good movie for a stop-a-terrorist-attack film. I'll have a 6/10 rating for this film.
