Joaquin Phoenix as Theo is astonishing as the audience can capture the feeling that Theo had, his loneliness, his need of a friend, and his love for his ex-wife.. While Scarlett Johansson successfully capture the perfect and lovely voice for Samantha that I thought a lot of men will hard to resist to talk with even though she's just an OS.. Even though the ending wasn't a sweet one, but Jonze taught us a very good lesson from this movie : no matter what happen, no matter how rapidly growing our technology are, you can never fall in love with a computer or you will have a heartbreak.. Officially my favorite movie and best of 2013 in my version..

Knowing that a movie about racing can take no more than 100 minutes.. But after I saw what Waugh and DreamWorks trying to offer in here, they're definitely serious with this project.. Because I saw that the final racing battle just took less than 30 minutes while they really try to make a strong story.. For me as the audiences, for this was a no brainer movie, they gave a pretty successful formula and delivering the entertainment to the audience.. But for the critics, well they definitely won't love this movie for some illogical reason that they had in here.. And for the cast, Aaron Paul is an overcast, means he should played in a better movie with some quality so to see him in here such as a waste of talent.. While the rising star they had in here is Imogen Poots and Rami Malek, especially Poots who I thought will be one of the top British actress in a few years..

I definitely agree with the critics and audiences that root for this movie to take home the biggest prize of that night.. Not only that Brad Pitt and the others produce a wonderful story about a free man that been kidnapped and made a slave for 12 years with a very touching story, but the cast also did a wonderful job such as Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, or Lupita Nyong'o.. And the power of this movie depends on its story that made the audiences can feel like what Solomon has experienced.. The emotion that this movie offered was that awesome so I was drawn into this movie.. But the one thing that kinda disturbing me is Steve McQueen's directing style because it is a little similar to Terence Malick's but luckily they're not exact same..
A sequel that shouldn't happen, well that's what I thought IMHO,… MoreA sequel that shouldn't happen, well that's what I thought IMHO, because Zack Snyder really put a high standard in the first '300' so to make a sequel and create a different story about it is twice the challenge.. And unfortunately for Noam Murro, even though he got help from Eva Green, Lena Headey, Rodrigo Santoro, or Sullivan Stapleton, but they can't save this movie.. Not only the battle scene that looks gore and like a B-class movie, but the story itself can't help.. And the battle scene, there are 2 battle scenes but they weren't as memorable as the battle in '300'.. Overall, it's great to know that this sequel still make money but if they're thinking to make another sequel just forget it..
Alright, alright, alright..!!! Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto… MoreAlright, alright, alright..!!! Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto really did it! As an actor who never been talked about with their performance, what they achieve in this movie was a joyful experience since McConaughey definitely show a great improvement in his acting career while Leto stun me with his magnificent performance as a transgender and I really thought that he is a transgender if I never know him before.. The story itself is quite interesting, about breaking the law to help people.. Well, Ron is kinda modern day Robin Hood for me..
Compared to what Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart offered in 'Olympus… MoreCompared to what Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart offered in 'Olympus Has Fallen', what Roland Emmerich, Channing Tatum, and Jamie Foxx try to offer in this movie is a total flop.. Unlike the battle between 'No Strings Attached' vs 'Friends with Benefit' before that we can call it a tie, 'Olympus Has Fallen' vs 'White House Down' is a comfortable win for Butler's side undoubtedly..

But to tell you the truth, they're kinda a little over-rated this movie.. But the power of this movie is even it is a silent movie but they're not boring.. So overall it's a great movie and definitely critics' favorite..

But what I saw for after 2 hours are a masterpiece from Payne with an outstanding performance from George Clooney and a show stealer performance from Shailene Woodley.. The story is light, kinda boring a little, but it's stunning me..

The cast weren't full of A-list actor, but they're pretty convincing enough to me as they brought a good performance.. But overall, it's just another sweet romantic movie by Woody Allen.. Not one of his best but definitely worth to watch..

The cast is doing brilliant job : Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, and Jeremy Renner, they're just stuninng.. While the script and directing style from David O Russell is once again made me fall in love with his work.. Why I said this movie over-rated because they're actually good, really good but just like 'Iron Man 3' which will leave the audience to love it or hate it, actually I felt that this movie got the same power to gave the audiences to love it or hate it.. While for the Golden Globes that this movie got, I must admit that the cast did a great job but to win it? Well that's what I thought as over-rated, especially for Jennifer Lawrence even though I love her performance in this movie..
