Best Movies vs. Favorite Movies

Best Movies vs. Favorite Movies

The two are different, at least for me. Some movies I consider the best sometimes are not the ones I consider my favorites, and vice versa. You can check My Favorite Films page, and you will find that not all (or even none) of them achieved my 5-star rating. I am gonna share my opinion about this topic—again, just based on my opinion—and, of course, you’re free to share your opinion too in the comment box.

15 Best Movies of 2013 So Far

15 Best Movies of 2013 So Far

First I have to admit that I am a total beginner who spent not a great deal of my time watching newly coming movies, so until now I haven’t watched a significant amount of movies. I even missed lots of movies in this summer so probably I’m gonna tight up my watching schedule around the end of this year. LOL.

The Place Beyond the Pines (2012)

The Place Beyond the Pines

Never heard of Derek Cianfrance before this, even with his popular "Blue Valentine". Some people consider "The Place Beyond the Pines" as (arguably) one of the earliest Oscar contenders, although for me it's a pure exaggeration. This is a good film, so good that I was about to give it my precious 4.5 stars before I finally rethink about it. But, of course, this is a rich-valued gem everyone should see this year.

Trance (2013)


I have never predicted that “Trance” can do more than I expected. It’s been so long for me not seeing such a twisting, un-predictable, multi-layered crime-thriller like this one. I didn’t keep good track on Danny Boyle’s filmography but I’m sure that he is also the one who turns the great story into such a tidy, chic presentation. I just think that this is the movie every crime-thriller lover should see. Read more to understand why.

Spring Breakers (2012)

Spring Breakers

I didn’t expect “Spring Breakers” more than just a film of four college girls hanging around at parties only in bikinis, just like what is seen from the trailer. But, recently some fellow-bloggers positively received it, and it eventually makes me a bit more interested in seeing “Spring Breakers”. It is clear that this is not a special film, but still it’s a quite fresh and surprisingly thoughtful film to be enjoyed in this summer.

Quick Review: 4 Movies in 1 Post

Quick Review

The first question: where have you been, Bar? The answer: nowhere. I have been nowhere, but I am busy with my mind and I lost my mood to write, so... I spent a week with not even a single writing posted. The second question: what movies have you watched in cinema recently, Bar? The answer: I haven’t gone to cinema for the past two weeks (the last time I went to cinema is to watch “Man of Steel”) so perhaps I skip “World War Z”, “Monsters University”, “White House Down”, and more. Sigh. Anyway, I have been watching some past-year movies and in case I can not write one review for each of them, I wrapped them into one post. Here they are:
