The Wolf of Wall Street is an exciting action film, based in a real facts. Is directed by Martin Scorsese, and the leading actor is Leonardo DiCaprio in the role of Jordan Belfort.

A man in a suit with a big smile on his face. Behind him a chaotic office scene.Jordan Belfort is an incredibly rich man. Is the example of the man that starts with absolutely nothing but with a dream, the American’s dream. With his talent in the stock exchange earns a lot of money. He is a drug addict, he loves sex and the good life. He has so much money that he doesn’t know what do with it. He is an ambitious, and he always want more than he has. It’s a funny film but with a tragic ending.

I liked this film because it’s different to all others. The film reflects that avarice is very bad and that you can’t have all you want. The actors are excellent and the acting too.

Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad is a TV series produced by Vince Gilligan. It is a drama series although great part of each episode is full of action and suspense.

This serie is starring by a middle-aged chemistry teacher who lives in Albuquerque, a city of New Mexico state in United States. His name is Walter White and he was diagnosed of an incurable lung cancer. After that, he wants to earn money for his family through an illegal way, producing methamphetamine, and for do that he has the help of his former student Jesse Pinkman. Since this part of the serie, begin all the occurrences and incidents when Walter White's brother-in-law Hank Schrader and all the team of DEA(Drug Enforcement Administration) want to stop him of producing metamphetamine.

Personally, I love how Bryan Cranston(Walter White) develope his role in the film, he seems a feeble, quiet man who just want to spend his time with his family and they put him a second face, where he is strong, bad and carefree. The theme hadn't been seen before in any TV serie so that gives another point. The plot is fantastic and at the end of each episode you already want to start the next episode, they leave you wondering about what will happen in the next one. So, you end watching all the episodes and seasons...

I recomend to watch it if you like the good TV series and you enjoy watching them. I can say it is the first TV serie that I could finish completely.


It's the final of the second world of war. Japan, the emperor of japan presented his surrender to the americans, after the atomical bombs in two of the most important cities of the country. The country had been destroied by the bombardament, at least in this war, died more than one milion pepole.

When the americans arrived to japan after the surrender in 1945, their mission was to search proves against all pepole that were associated with the beginning of the war. And of course, as we know, Pearl Harvour.

The emperor was considerated like a god, and put his figure in a court should't have been the best for the country, therfore, the american army don't have to find proves against him if they wanted to rebuilding the country. The main character in this film is a general, that was under the orders of an other general. He had 10 days to prove if the emperor had something related with the beginning of the war.

He started to search information in all of pepole that could have contact with the emperor and the war. He had his own driver and interpret. And with him could achieve all necessary information.

Finally he could acquitte the emperor, and he could continue his dinasty until 1989, when he died.
But a lot the prime minister and some ministers, dead by hanguing after the decision of the internacional cort.

I think it's a very interesting history, I make a short abstract, but inside this film there is a love history too, and it's very exciting.

I recomend you this film,

You will enjoy it.

Fast & Furious 4

Fast and Furious 4 is an American action film directed by Justin Lin and written by Chris Morgan. Fast and Furious 4 is the fourth movie of Fast and Furious series.

The fugitive Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto and his new crew: his girlfriend, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Leo Tego (Tego Calderón), Rico Santos (Don Omar), Cara Mirtha (Mirtha Michelle), and Han (Sung Kang), are stealing fuel tankers in the Dominican Republic to earn a living. Dominic Toretto met again with the detective Brian O’Conner, but their friendship wasn’t going away. Despite of that, they had to join their forces to confront a common enemy. After a robbery, Vin Diesel and Brian, they found out that they should revenge on road.

In conclusion, it’s a male film. Because the movie it’s about powerful cars, money, violence, guns… But it’s a motivator film and encouraging because it has another point of view of the live.

I think teenagers and young people can full enjoy this movie. Even though, it’s not recommended for teenagers because the film advertises stealing, the high speed of the road, violence… It does like a good deed. But if you are aware no problem for you and you can full enjoy the film.
The prestige

I recently saw "The prestige", a film directed by Christoper Nolan in 2006. The film features Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman as two competitive magicians in nineteenth century London. It tells the story of a friendship that turns into revenge.
I like this film because it's completely mysterious and unpredictable. The setting is totally believable and the acting is convincing. The plot is exciting be
cause both magicians try to overcome the other one with their tricks and it becomes a competition to see which one is the best magician. It's also an amazing film to watch and it has also been nominated for two Oscars.
On the other hand, I didn't like it at all because I don't like this kind of films, thrillers. I find them really boring and completely humorless.
To sum up, I think people who like thriller movies will find it stunning but for those that don't like this kind of films, will find it boring.


Inception is a science fiction film (148 minutes), directed by Cristopher Nolan. The film stars Leonardo di Caprio and Ellen Page. The movie won 4 Oscars. And the soundtrack was created by Hans Zimmer.

The plot is about one man called Cobb, he is a wanted man but will be free if he does the impossible, plant a new idea into another person’s subcontinents. He has the help of his collaborators to perform this difficult task. But the victim has been trained to destroy everything strange in his mind. For this reason, they have to be very careful, because sometimes things get complicated.

The film shows us that into the dreams, it's easy to confuse the reality and the imaginary. So you can be careful to not stay always in a dream, which everything it's good and solve the troubles is an easy task.

I like this movie because there is action, intrigue and love until the end. Also I like very much the sountrack. The end is open, for this reason, you can imagine how finish.

If you want to see the movie, you have to pay close attention to the action otherwise, it will be difficult to follow the plot.

Here you have the trailer:

Donnie Darko

Donnie Darko, directed by Richard Kelly. This film couldn't be shown on the cinema screens due to the attack on the Twin Towers in 2001. The film is strange because it can take several theories assuming if everything was true, illusion, or both. The film star is Jake Gyllenhaal, who plays the main role as Donnie. Donnie is a teenager who has visions of a giant rabbit named Frank, who predicts incidents about end of the world.

The movie is set in 1988, Donnie Darko is a teenager with symptoms of paranoia and schizophrenia and the psychologist who regularly attends him prescribes him continuous medication. Donnie begins to hear voices that turn out to be a human-sized rabbit named Frank who aspect is demoniac. One night following the voice Donnie escapes home sleepwalking and in the garden of his house the rabbit tells him that the world will end in 28 days. That night a jet engine falls into Donnie 's room but since he has saved his life out, the rabbit will instruct Donnie to try to avoid catastrophe. Then Donnie tries to unravel the mystery every day by accumulating more questions about whether what it is happening is real or the mere figment of his imagination.

Finally, when the universe is about to collapse Donnie understands the meaning of all the events and manages to return to the initial condition just before the aircraft turbine discards and crushes into the room, where Donnie is again present. Because of their sacrifice his loved ones are saved and they go back to the primary universe. Fortunatelly, the end of the world is avoided.

Overall, in my opinion I think that it is some what different from the other films. Richard Kelly has definitely created a cult film. It has an interesting and highly recommended minded argument for people accustomed to unusual films.

Here  you can see the trailer.

Tengo ganas de ti

Tengo ganas de ti, directed by Fernando González Molina and starring Mario Casas and Clara Lago, is a Spanish drama film and tells the love story of Hache and Gin and shows us how everything changes and how anything lasts forever. It is the sequel of A 3 metros sobre el cielo and it's based on a novel of Federico Moccia. It was shot in Barcelona between October and December 2012.

Hache returns to Barcelona after spending two years in London trying to forget his first love, Babi (María Valverde), and Pollo's death, his best friend (Álvaro Cervantes). When he arrives he feels strange because everything is the same but everybody has changed. His life is very different and he must go on, but he has got an important fear: see Babi again. This fear decreases when he meet Gin (Clara Lago), a girl without fear of anything. Everything is ok until he meets Babi and he must choose between Babi and Gin. At the same time, he has more problems: his mother dies, he gets Pollo's motorbike that killed him...

The location of the film is really good (Barcelona) and in my opinion the actors are very good too. Another good think in the film is the music, the lyrics of the songs are really good. If you felt in love with A 3 metros sobre el cielo you must see Tengo ganas de ti.

You'll enjoy the story even if you have fifty or twelve years old. If you're old you'll remember that love story that you'll always remember and if you're young you'll made plans about your first love. But... Have a packet of tissues next to the popcorn!!

"Howl's Moving Castle" is a 2004 animation film directed by Japanese filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki and based on the book of the same name written by Diana Wynne Jones. The film is orginally in Japanese by the version I have seen was dubbed into English with the voices of Jean Simmons, Christian Bale, Lauren Bacall and others.

Sophie is a young girl who works making hats in the shop she inherited from her father. One day she meets an attractive young man, Howl, who turns out to be a powerful wizard. A witch that used to be in love with Howl is angry that he pays attention to Sophie and casts a spell on her: she turns her into a very old woman.

Sophie is horrified at her change, but eventually she decides that she will have to continue living. She sets on a trip to find a way to overcome her spell. During the trip she will find Howl's home, his moving castle. They meet again and they help each other to understand themselves better.

The movie can be read at different levels. For some people it is a metaphor on how doing things for others will make you a better person. Other people point out that Sophie gets free from her spell only when she realizes that it's she's the one keeping herself old and wrinkled.

If you think animation films are just for little children, think again. I recommend you watch this film with your younger siblings, cousins or with any children you know. The kids will enjoy the story and you'll be able to discover many nuances in this fascinating movie.

Barcelona nit d'estiu.

Barcelona nit d'estiu is a film directed by Dani Catalan de la Orden and starred by Francesc Colomer as Guillem, Jan Cornet as Héctor, Joan Dausà as Joan, Mar del Hoyo as Roser, Laura Díaz as Anna, Miki Esparbé as Carles, Sara Espigul as Judit, Luís Fernández as Marc, Àlex Monner as Jordi and more... The film was released in 2013. The script of the film is based on the song "jo mai mai- Dausà John", who later took a charge of his soundtrack and also played an important role.

The film is like a big puzzle of different stories attached to two levels: they are all on one side romantic and all of them are occurred the night of August 18 2013, when the comet Rose crossed the sky of Barcelona. The important thing of all the stories is that together paint a portrait of a society closer to the reality.

I am not used to like this kind of movies but this film caught my attention because it was recorded in Barcelona, and the truth is that I liked.
I recommend this movie to everyone.

Here you have the trailer, I hope you like it:

(500) Days of Summer

500 days of Summer, directed by Marc webb and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel tells us the story of Tom (Gordon-Levitt), a man that works as a writer  of greeting cards. Summer (Deschanel) is his boss's new assistant.

Tom falls for Summer at first sight, so, he takes advantage of every opportunity he has at work to come close to her. Finally, thanks to a friend of him, he can talk to her openly and she finds him "interesting". But Summer likes Tom just as a friend, which means he has no any choice but accept it. Little by little, they become closer and closer, up to the point that she seems like she has no secrets for him. Everything seems going okay, Tom thinks that Summer is his perfect girl, but she doesn't believe in love or being someone's girlfriend, she loves her freedom, so what will happen between them?

The film writers, Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, make a really good job with the seriously funny and touching script. The films shuffles through Tom's 500 days with Summer in a random order that lets us see the fun times and not really fun ones. By the beginning of the movie we already know that it doesn't have the typical hollywood ending, which makes it exciting. It breaks almost all the rules of a romantic comedy.

It shows us relationships by how they really are. I'm sure you would really enjoy the story if you watch it.
