Movie Review: Hancock

Review does not contain any ‘real’ spoilers but links might do.

Hancock (IMDb) (Trailers)

I remember clearly the day I came across the teaser for movie Hancock staring Will Smith. First of all, I consider Will Smith a great entertainer (singer, comedian and actor) and seeing him in the role of Hancock was just perfect.

I guess I saw the trailer around 5 times the first day and was laughing like a lunatic each time (“… Greenpeace does…”) so this was a movie that went right in on the top of movies to see.

Movie Review: Cloverfield

Review does not contain any 'real' spoilers but links might do. Cloverfield (IMDb) (Trailers) It is now a week ago I saw Cloverfield for the first time and I might see it again in another week. There have been written a lot about this movie and how it was filmed and it is one of those movies that either you love it or you hate it. To illustrate this I will give a summary of the cinema experience: I went…

Movie review: Die Hard 4.0

Die Hard 4.0 (Live Free or Die Hard) (IMDb) (Trailers) I recently went to the cinema see some action, the movie I choose was a pure action candidate and I knew it would not be boring. The movie was of course Die Hard 4.0 (But I almost ended up watching a preview of Transformers) I got to admit that I liked the 3 previous Die Hard movies; the action; the dark humor; the action; Bruce Willis; Small twists in story;…

Finally the last of the four reviews that I had planned for now. The previous reviews can be found here: Shooter, Sunshine and Music & Lyrics Today it is about the movie 300; at the end of the review I will give my recommendations for the 4 movies and let you know what I plan to get on DVD at a later stage. 300 (IMDb) (Trailers) Ever since I saw the first trailer I knew I had to see this…

Review of 4 movies. Part 3, the movie Music And Lyrics

This is the third review in my small movie review session. The two previous reviews were of Shooter and Sunshine. Music and Lyrics (IMDb) (Trailers) Saw this movie the other day and was very pleased with the whole experience. The movie should not be taken serious (few movies should) as it is a comedy. It features a great combination of Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore. To make a long story very short; Hugh Grant plays the role of an old…

Review of 4 movies. Part 2, the movie Sunshine

This is the second part of my movie reviews. The first review was of the movie Shooter and that review can be found here. I would normally avoid any kind of spoilers but this review will contain some; but do read on and you will soon know why. Sunshine (IMDb) (Trailers) After I saw Sunshine I was very close to do a post just about the experience, but since I don't want to be seen as a very negative person…

Review of 4 movies. Part 1, the movie Shooter

During the last month I went to the cinema a few times and decided to I would share my opinion about the movies. There will be 4 mini reviews which will be done in 4 postings. In each of the reviews I will try to avoid any spoilers except for one movie where the spoilers are for your own good... I will also be giving links to the IMDb (The Internet Movie Database) (great resource for movie information) and also…

Book review: Code Craft: The Practice of Writing Excelent Code (By Daniel Klein)

Daniel Klein recently did a very good review of the book "Code Craft: The Practice of Writing Excelent Code" by Pete Goodliffe. He blogged about this where he also includes a link to the full review on Javelobby.org (Don't worry the book is not about Java). So if you are a programmer / software engineer then I would recommend you check out the review. The book is worth getting for any software engineer I would say, not that I got…

Time to reduce the consumption of batteries with USBCell

I don't know if this is normal, but I feel that I'm buying batteries very often. Of course it matters that I have two kids which have several toys that needs batteries but still it scares me a bit when I see how many I bring back to recycling from time to time. If I think about the devices I got that uses batteries then the list is not short of course, just to mention a few of them: GameBoy…
