Spy

Spy2015_TeaserPosterLast night I watched Spy a comedy/parody of spy thrillers and James Bond movies.

Susan Cooper is a CIA agent who has never been out on a mission. She has always been the eyes and ears of her colleague and loveSpy-movie-review-melissa-mccarthy-jude-law
interest agent Fine. When Fine is killed in action and a lot of field agents have been compromised, she decides to leave her desk, catch the villain and avenge her colleague’s death.

It is a parody of spy films that takes us around the globe and it is quite funny. I have always loved films that show us action in various famous locations and aren’t only in a studio. Susan is a funny spy as her general appearance is very far from what we are used to seeing in spies and spy heroines; it is also her asset as the villain doesn’t see her coming. It is a well made film that is quite enjoyable to watch.

hr_The_Grand_Budapest_Hotel_3On a quiet Saturday evening I watched The Grand Budapest Hotel and I have to say it is not what I expected.

It is the story of Gustave H the concierge of the Grand Budapest Hotel, a very luxurious and item4.rendition.slideshowVertical.grand-budapest-hotel-set-05-lobby-german-jugendstil-decorfamous hotel that was visited by the rich and mighty of this world . We see the rise and fall of the hotel through the history of the 20th century. It is narrated by the Lobby Boy, Zero Mustafa, that was trained by Gustave H, was very close to him and after various adventures came to be the final owner of the Grand Hotel.

It is a very creative and colourful film with an army of talented actors parading through it. Each scene and picture is a story by itself. It is fresh and new and unlike anything I have seen so far. It seems like a parody I-know-not-what-of but it makes a statement and makes you think at the same time.

It is great entertainment; interesting, inspiring and fun to watch!
