DJ Akhu's Movie Reviews: 'Happythankyoumoreplease' (2011)

Movie: Happythankyoumoreplease
Sneaks' Rating: 5.9/10 Stars *****'
This was a bit of a different/oddball movie about a group of young people in New York City. Main character randomly meets the girl of his dreams on the street, the same day he gets rejected again for a script he wrote, and he ends up helping a kid who gets lost on the metro and doesn't want to go back to his foster family. Side stories are also a bit strange/have an element of creep to them in my opinion (maybe that was just me?)...check it out if your bored.

DJ Akhu's Movie Reviews: "Pineapple Express" (2008)

Movie: Pineapple Express (2008)

My Rating: 7/10 Stars *******

Hilarious movie, don't know why i waited so long to see it, 'Bill Lumberg' as the evil druglord is pretty funny in and of itself..awkward at times, violent, and also was a long movie for its genre. Check this one out if you haven't already, good action and comedy blend.

A strange but entertaining old Russian movie about a young school boy who unwittingly finds and opens a strange bottle he finds whilst swimming to discover it holds a powerful Genie who is so happy to be free that he takes it upon himself to be the boy's new guardian and servant.

DJ Akhu's Movie Reviews: 'Topkapi" (1964)

Director: Jules Dassin
Rating: 9/10 Stars *********
Topkapi is an awesome/classic jewel thief movie because it was one of the first of its kind (as far as I am aware)! A group professional thieves takes on a the challenge of stealing a valuable knife from one of Turkey's big museums. Along the way they recruit the unlikely but likable Peter Ustinov, and a not so serious adventure begins. Great shots of Istanbul in the 1960's, makes me want to visit.
