Woman in Gold Full Movie Reviews :

Woman in Gold is based on the true story of Maria Altman a Jewish woman who wants to reclaim a painting which part of her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family during the Nazi occupation of Vienna.

Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II and settling in Los Angeles, she started to retrieve her family possessions confiscated by the Nazi which includes a famous painting by Klimt called “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I” which the Austrian establishment refuses to relinquish; the Austrians considered the painting the “Mona Lisa of Austria” and displayed prominently at the Belvedere Palace.

Maria Altman eventually took custody of the painting with the help of Randy Schoenberg a young lawyer inexperienced in international law who happened to be the grandson of the great Austrian composer Arnold Schoenberg. The fight took them to the heart of the Austrian establishment and all the way to the US Supreme Court.

The movie plot is easy to follow and very fast-paced and the story goes back and forth from Woman in Gold 4the time Maria Altman’s young life in Vienna to the present time where she fought to take possession of the painting. The movie is a legal drama as much as a historical depiction of World War II; a big portion of the film is about Vienna during the war.

Like most of her movies, Helen Mirren did a fantastic acting job so with Ryan Reynolds.
Helen Mirren starred as Maria Altman, Ryan Reynolds as Randy Schoenberg with Katie Holms as the wife of Randy, directed by Simon Curtis.

Ex Machina  Full Movie Reviews :

Ex Machina is a movie about robots and artificial intelligence. Computer programmer Caleb Smith wins a company-wide competition which entitles him to spend a week with the CEO of their search engine company at his private estate located in a remote mountain. Their CEO Nathan Bateman is brilliant but reclusive, a cocky genius that dared to play God.

The intent of the competition is to select someone to be the human component of an experiment called Turing Test; to evaluate the capabilities of a robot with artificial intelligence Ex Machina 2and determine if the robot has consciousness. The robot takes the form of a human and named Ava, a seemingly perfect robot that has emotional intelligence and sophistication Nathan and Caleb could have imagined.

Ex Machina has shades of Stepford Wives but is it far more stylish and sophisticated. It has a great plot and the story is flawlessly written and very well told and it does not make you wonder what is happening. The story is told in a way that it is eerie slow but keeps you on the edge of your seat.

On the technical side, the women as robots especially Ava is worth the price of the ticket; the computer lights inside their bodies are fantastic and look believable. The location is magnificent as well with the modern concrete and glass building built on the sides of a mountain.

If you love science fiction movies, you should not miss Ex Machina; it is sophisticated, very stylish with great plot and story. It is a brilliant movie.

There are no major stars in the movie but all of them carried their roles very well. Alicia Vikander as Ava the robot is exceptionally good and could become a noteworthy if not a huge star. Oscar Isaac starred as Nathan Bateman the CEO, Domhnall Gleeson as Caleb Smith the computer geek. Written and directed by Alex Garland.

Crimson Peak  Full Movie Reviews :

Crimson Peak is a supernatural gothic mystery about a woman a young heiress who fell in Crimson Peak 1love to a stranger who owns a decaying mansion on top of a mountain with red-blood clay; a house with very dark secrets that will haunt her forever

This is a gothic romance between Edith Cushing a young heiress aspiring to become an author with a taste of the supernatural and Baronet Thomas Sharpe an inventor Crimson Peak 2seeking an investment from her father. Dashing Thomas swept Edith off her feet and eventually moved to the Baronets’ gloomy, windswept and decaying castle in the north of England.

Living in the castle with the bride and groom is Lucille the spinster sister of the Baronet. Like their decaying caste, Lucille is as cold as the castle whose part of the roof is missing, insects and butterflies all around inside the house and dead leaves and snow falling on the hole on the roof. Lucille is icy and gloomy with very dark secrets.

With a measured pace, the movie is not very subtle, ghosts are not hidden behind doors and closets and the violence is in your face gory. It is not predictable where you know what would happen at the end. Crimson Peak is not the traditional horror movie of today but a Gothic romance horror movie.

The real wonder is the decadent and stylish production design. It is dark and moody with very dark and rich colors. The clothes especially that of the women are dark, the furniture around the castle is dark and heavy which sets the gloomy tone of the movie.

Jessica Chastain did very well as icy and evil Lucille and so with Mia Wasikowska as frail but strong-willed Edith; Tom Hiddlestone starred as Thomas Sharpe. Directed by Guillermo Del Torro which he also co-wrote with Matthew Robbins and Lucinda Coxon.
