  • Taken Movie Techniques

    Captivating, suspenseful, riveting, exhilarating are only a few of the words that I would use to describe the movie Taken. If you desire a high dose of adrenaline to quench your movie watching thirst, and if you are ready to take a super-charged ride to the action filled city of Paris, France, then this is a must see movie for you. Taken, not for the faint of heart, will keep you on the edge of your seat for the entire ninety-one minutes.

  • Essay On Valerian

    the adventures of Valerian and Laureline to the cinema was not new, though. Since Besson made The Fifth Element (1997), also based on a French comic series, that he wanted to do it, but the director felt the technology available would not allow to reproduce the unique universe of the spatio-temporal agents. It was only after Avatar, from James Cameron, that Luc Besson believed the conditions were met, and started to think of Valerian as a film. Or more, as the director suggested in a recent…
