Dunkirk Movie Review

Dunkirk Movie Review. Dunkirk is directed by Christopher Nolan and it is based on the true event when 400,000 soldiers with their back to the sea trapped on the beach completely surrounded by German forces that were coming in and no way to get home. The the concerted organized effort to save those guys.
Trust us, this is one of the most intense films you are going to see this year. The way Nolan sculpts this story is is so impressive. We heard early on on some screenings that a lot of critics are saying there's not a lot of characters development in Dunkirk and audience won't get to know the characters.
But, what you realize is that this movie is not about any of the characters. Dunkirk is about on particular moment. Nolan want to take the audience and immerse them into a situation that happened once. He wanted you to feel all the intensity, tension, and fear of being trapped and attacked.

When the bullets are whizzing by and the boats are sinking you  did not need to see bloo…


If I Stay stars Chloe Grace Moretz as Mia and Jamie Blackley as Adam and yet another novel into movie adaptation. Chloe Moretz plays a high school student that sort of an outcast not only in school but at home as well.

She's a classical student, totally into the cello but her parents are into rock and roll as well as her brother. She kinda feel left put even in her own home, but her parents do treat her well and she does get along with them. Unfortunately she does not feel part of the group. 

While she's in school practicing her cello in a class all by her self, Adam comes strolling along and sees this beautiful girl. This seem kind of normal except the fact that he was stalking her through the window for weeks. Finally he got the courage to ask her out on a date and that is where the love begins. 

Time passes and Mia's mom decided to hang out with the family and then they had this great idea to take the whole family out for a drive. They got in the car crash, Mia has out of her body experience and rush everyone to the hospital and se has to figure out if she wants to live or die. 

While she's having out of her body experience, the movies switches froam past to present. While it's in the past it shows the relationship between Mia and Adam as well as her parents.  

You could really feel the love in this movie at every level. From the boyfriend and girlfriend, brother and sister love, and even and the love between Mia and her parents. 

But I found it very confusing that the movie really focusing on the boyfriend and girlfriend love, which I thought so disrespectful to the book. 

I have to give you a warning, If I Stay is a very sad movie. A lot of people were crying in the cinema, I was crying towards the end. The way the movie progressed was unlikeable. Because it had this tunnel vision on this boyfriend-girlfriend relationship. When anyone falls in love, it's all consuming. It is so exiting to discover someone new who you hope might be part from your life.

Have you done If I Stay movie review?
