Movie Review: Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Two girlfriends on a summer holiday in Spain become enamored with the same painter, unaware that his ex-wife, with whom he has a tempestuous relationship, is about to re-enter the picture.

Director: Woody Allen
Writer: Woody Allen
Stars: Rebecca Hall, Scarlett Johansson, Javier Bardem

Since we haven’t reviewed an Indian movie in almost a week, I thought I would recommend one today. This movie is my guilty pleasure, but it’s hard not to fall in love with it.

I first saw it almost four years ago. My best friend called me, asking if we wanted to go see a movie, because she didn’t want to go home. I put on a pair of jeans and the first shirt I could find and got into my car. At the first light stop I looked online what movies where at the cinema at that hour (around 09:30 PM) and one caught my eye. Life doesn’t give you a second chance. 8.2 on IMDB. It should be a good one if it has such a good mark. When we entered the cinema and saw it was an Indian movie, she almost killed me. But after the movie started rolling, the magic happened….

Radu’s Movie Recommendation: Last Vegas

Have you ever wanted a bachelor party? Your own way of going out with a bang of the single life? Getting all of your friends and going to Las Vegas where you can go wild? Drink, gamble, strip clubs?

Radu’s Movie Recommendation: Begin Again (2013)

You can tell a lot about a person by what’s on their playlist.
