From the amazing movie “Once”, comes another music-inspired romantic film from director John Carney.
This was previously titled “Can A Song Save Your Life?”, and I’m actually glad they changed it to Begin Again. First things first, the cast is not my favourite group of actors and it was as if I just sat through the whole movie without any exceeded expectations. There was just back stories that lead to the current situation and for me it didn’t quite measure up. I was impressed with the songs though. Maybe that was the idea after all? Adam Levine couldn’t act to save his life while Keira Knightley’s signature pout and glare worked in her favor. There was no opportunity to be as dramatic and intense as her character in A Dangerous Method (which she was incredible in). Mark Ruffalo and Catherine Keener were mismatch. They delivered. I just really didn’t like it as much as other people did. Lost Stars is a song I will listen to forever.

I have to say this is one of the best sequels ever made in the history of cop films! It was just ridiculous and wild the whole time!
LOVED IT a lot! Jonah and Channing are indeed terrific in playing two bros who go undercover to bust a drug operation in a university. The chemistry is undeniable and I wouldn’t mind for more installments: IT JUST WORKS! The best part has to be the scene where the drugs kicked in and Channing was in a happy place and he dances around to the “ass and titties” song (boy got moves damn) while Jonah is stuck in a dark place and Creed was playing in the background. Priceless. It’s a 5 because I will watch it again!

I really tried to finish the book but something kept me. Anyway, I found this movie to be completely sad and inspiring. The choice of actors were great and they delivered amazingly. One thing I may point out: is there such a living guy that’s so positive and full of charm like Mr. Augustus Waters? That name too though. It may seem like he’s the “perfect guy” any girl dreams of, but let’s be real here. The script was too good! I almost teared up at the part where Hazel says "I was saving my 10" & “I’m a grenade and at some point I’m going to blow up and I would like to minimize the casualties, okay?” It just broke me honestly T.T
You guys should see this!

How awesome was this movie?!
No need for a proper review. I liked it very much. Especially Evan Peters’ role as Quicksilver and the best use of Jim Croce’s “Time In A Bottle”.

I really thought I was gonna like this…until I didn’t
Given the impressive cast, I, for one, praised the choices made by the producers. They were wrong with the lead actor though, Aaron Johnson. I mean he’s great and all but his voice in this as shrill and he didn’t try too hard- they were relying on how hot he looked.
The beginning was amazing. Locations, history, Juliette Binoche- it was really going somewhere. The parts where Bryan Cranston was emotional really got to me. The whole feel of the movie was unsettling BUT predictable, like I actually didn’t get thrilled at all. Halfway through it I fell asleep! The fight scenes were okay. Not much to do for the script but the effects were crazy! That ending didn’t do the movie justice.
