Movie Review: Sex and the City


Featuring: Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon, Chris Noth

Genre: romance, comedy, drama

Plot: We all have our problems but each girl deserves her happy-ending.

Official website:

Comments: It was the day before my vacation and I wanted to treat myself with something light that didn’t imply too much thinking or require much attention so I chose a typical chick flick. I must have seen half a dozen of episodes over the years, and while the show was sort of fun on occasions I didn’t have the patience or interest to follow it and watch more. The girls were funny and I got to look at great dresses, well, except for the wedding outfits, those were horrible, so during the first half an hour I thought that watching the movie instead of the entire show was a good idea, I got the full experience in two hours tops. Only that it was longer than that and once it started to drag it felt even longer, like a six season show longer. I was glad when it ended! But it did have the expected happy-end and, like I said, great dresses… enough is enough though, no sequels, please!

Rating: 6/10

Movie Review: Hancock


Featuring: Will Smith, Charlize Theron, Jason Bateman

Genre: action, sci fi, comedy

Plot: The life of a superhero in today’s society.

Official website:

Comments: Not much philosophy there and the movie doesn’t raise up to the standards Will Smith used us with, but it is summer movie easy fun. Charlize Theron does a better job than she did in Aeon Flux, thank God! Jason Bateman is ok, but of course Will Smith steals the show.

Rating: 6/10

Movie Review: Wall-E


Featuring: Ben Burtt, Elissa Knight, Jeff Garlin, Fred Willard

Genre: animation, sci fi

Plot: What becomes of the human kind in a few hundred years… maybe…

Official website:

Comments: It was the best movie I’ve seen in a long time. Visually beautiful, funny in the right places, heartfelt and making you think about the ideas presented. Really really good, just a little too long and dragging in the segment on the spaceship but that part was fun too. I recommend it to everyone regardless the age.

Rating: 9/10

Movie Review: Wanted


Featuring: James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman, Angelina Jolie, Terence Stamp, Thomas Kretschmann, Common

Genre: action, thriller

Plot: Little nobody becomes somebody… sort of…

Official website:

Comments: If you want to see James McAvoy play a torn character watch Penelope, if you want to see Angelina Jolie look hot and kick ass watch Tomb Rider, if you want to see Morgan Freeman do a good part watch just about anything else. Don’t watch Wanted. The script is so poorly written, even aberrant at times, that I would have to grade it with a minus in front. Cool special effects, way too much unnecessary gore. And the ending sucks. For a movie whose message is supposed to be ‘take control of your life’ I won’t be surprised if we have another Natural Born Killers on our hands when some poor shmuck grabs a gun and start shooting everything around only to blame it later on this lame excuse of a movie.

Rating: 6/10

Short story - Freeze

A bit of good news today, on of my stories appeared in Nautilus, a sci fi and fantasy online magazine run by Nemira publishing house. There's no pay involved since it's an online magazine, I just get to choose a free book from them, but what is important to me it's the fact that I grew up reading sci fi novels from Nemira. I think I've got every book they published in the 90's. And on top of all my story came online right on my birthday so yey!

Here's the story, in Romanian:

Next step, a novel!
