James Cromwell qoute EXCLUSIVELY for Kemzmovies!!!

Throughout the past couple of days, I kept seeing James Cromwell walking around Katara and enjoying his time in the festival. Everytime I see him I feel happy, because he looks very interested in Doha Tribeca Film Festival (DTFF) and in Qatar. He is very humble and was nice to everyone!!
I'm very honored that he came to DTFF!!!
Yesterday I was in the "Harrar Harrar" opening and got the time to talk to him. I told him I needed a line exclusively for my blog and he said,
"Dare to be an Artist"
A short line with huge meaning!! He encourage everyone to become artists and use their talents and express themselves.
I'm really really happy and honored to have the chance to talk to him!!

So!!! The first day of Doha Tribeca Film Festival (DTFF) yesterday was so so so exciting!!! I meet so many celebs from GCC and the World!!!

The best part and what really made my day, was that I talked to MARK STRONG!!!

If you don't know who Mark Strong is (you're crazy!!) he was Lord Blackwood in the first Sherlock Holmes with Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr. He also was Godfrey in my favorite film Robin Hood!!!!

He also stars in Black Gold and he was here for the World Premier in DTFF!! He was so NICE!!!!

I waved at him and told him if he can give me an exclusive quote for my BLOG!!!

He said: "I never been to the middle east before in my life and I feel incredibly honored that the first country I ever visited is Qatar. And it's amazing to be here with a movie that says such beautiful things about the Arabic people and I think it's an important film. Also the aspiration of the film meets the aspiration of Qatar. It's a real honor to be here."

BIG THANKS to Mark Strong!!!!

I was soo happy and I'm still happy because I got this amazing AMAZING opportunity that could not happen to me without Doha Tribeca Film Festival!!!

this is Mark!!! The black line on the side is my shoulder :p hahaha!!

Movie Review: Real Steal

I was waiting for this movie since forever!!! I am so happy I got the chance to go and see it!!! It’s AMAZING!!! A M A Z I NG!!!!!

The story of boxing robots!! How cool is that!! I was punching invisible robots throughout the fights!! Haha!!

I loved how you can feel the heart and soul of this movie!! I cried in more than one scene! It’s so cool!

So *calm down* the story is about a boxing champion, Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman) whose career was killed by the boxing industry moving to Robots! As he tries to buy a robot to compete with, his son, Max (Dakota Goyo) comes into the picture. Both of them spend the summer together and go through a mind blowing experience!!

Hugh Jackman is one of my favorite actors, not only ‘cause he is super super cute, but also because you can feel the emotions his character feel. He’s brilliant!!  The kid,OMG!! He is so gifted!! He’s so funny and really fit his character (even though he was weak in some scenes, but for his age, he was GREAT!!)

I also was blown by the special effects used in this movie. It was more believable than I thought it would be. The fighting scenes were so real. There was couple of scenes as well, which were so beautiful. You normally don’t see this kind of artistic quality in an action movie. What I also loved was how they incorporated futuristic technology with traditional ways. It didn’t ruin the concept nor did it look faked.

The directing was genius!! Shawn Levy did a great job!! All the elements of this movie worked together and it didn’t lose our attention.

I love this movie, I’m so gonna buy the DVD. The movie is action packed and so exciting!! I clapped, yelled and punched the air hahaha!! It’s one of this movies that make you live the story with all your senses!!

I recommend this movie to all types of people!!

Movie Review: The Social Network

The social network is a film about the creation of Facebook and how the youngest billionaire in the world, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook handled the controversy it came with it.

The movie starts with the reason Mark (Jesse Eisenberg) wanted to be famous and to create something that will make him likable; his girlfriend left him. So, in his sad and drunk hours Mark created a website called "Facematch" which hit 22,000 visits and crashed Harvard Universities network within hours.  
The website got him in serious trouble, but in the same time, it opened the doors for Facebook to be born. Three students in Harvard sought Mark to help them create an exclusive social network site, but Mark is not convinced by their idea and start working on his own site "The Facebook" and here we are hit by the first question: Did Mark Zuckerberg steal those student's ideas?
To launch "The facebook" Mark needed funding and for that he turned to his friend Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield) who is the co-founder of Facebook. Together they took the college social experience and planted it in the virtual world of Facebook.
As the website expanded they struggled to collect the funding it needed to keep the web site running and for in that point the brilliant but very wild Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake)came into the picture and started a dispute between Mark and Eduardo. A dispute that broke their friendship and led them to face each other in court.
The movie hocks you from the first scene with the genius mind set of Mark Zuckerberg. Jesse Eisenberg language, movement and the look in his eyes make you believe that this man is the founder of Facebook. Jesse's performance is remarkable in this film. I felt like he was Mark Zuckerberg more than the real Mark Zuckerberg himself. It was flawless!
The movie was smart, sharp and thrilling. You don't understand half of their conversations, but you want to know more. It also leaves you with many unanswered questions: Who's wrong? Is Mark Zuckerberg a bad guy or a good one?  Was Facebook a stolen idea? Did Mark backstabbed his best friend?
It's no wonder "The Social Network" won 3 Oscars and was nominated for additional 5. The movie was a piece of art. The script itself is mind blowing. How every word was written to serve a purpose and in the same time grab the attention of the viewer. Aaron Sorkin genius work deserves more.

Movie Review: The Three Musketeers

OMG!! I had like 3 dreams last night of awesome exciting fight scenes then I woke up and went to see the new Three Musketeers movie!! BEST DAY EVER!!!!! (It turned kinda bad when I couldn't find any decent shoes in my size but that's for another blog!)
So, so, so, so !!! Where to start!! It was so exciting and had amazing new twist in it!!! The fight scenes, oh GOD!!!! It was ART!!!! I was so blown away!!!
It was like Pirates of the Caribbean kind of awesomeness!!!
*deep breath* I'll focus and explain everything. The story is a story we grow up hearing about. The Three Musketeers are like super heroes from the old ages to us! I mean who hasn't heard of "all for one and one for all"!!! We all dreamed that we were one of them one day and if you didn't, reader after seeing this version of the story you will!!
Couple of years ago I read "The Man in the Iron Mask" and discovered it was book 3 from the Musketeers series. Everyone were so old hehehe. But reading that book made me feel more attached to them!
This movie however made me fell in love with the Musketeers' life!! The way the movie was filmed was beautiful!! It was BRILLIANT!! They created a gorgeous old Paris <3. It was so pretty!! I loved also how bright, shiny and cute everything looked like!! They made me feel like it was just another normal sunny day in Paris!
I loved, loved how they dressed. It was made in a very very professional style. It was amazing! You can see all the details and the colors were so clear!! I bet they're gonna nominate the film for the Oscars because of this.
I also loved how they recreated and tweaked the story and made it bigger, bolder and AWESOMER!!! You seriously have to go see the film to understand my ongoing gibberish!! I don't want to spoil it for you!
I didn't see the trailer or any of the movie's picture and thought it will be lame. I so love it when I get taken by surprise like this!! I really recommend not watching trailers anymore and just take the risk in seeing a movie and you'll find something as awesome as this and you'll be all smily :D!!
Ok, let start talking about the hot Musketeers and their even hotter enemy (Lord Buckingham not the Cardinal :p) D'Artagnan he's so cute, wanting to just go fight and foolishly brave. Logan Lerman was so natural in his acting that you actually admired D'Artagnan foolishness hehehehe.  Then you have the Three original Musketeers, Porthos, Athos and Aramis ooooh, they are so cute!! All Of them, they're fighting scenes were so WICKED, I was like :O!! And let's not talk about Orlando Bloom, oh, oh, oh, he was sooooo GOOD!!!! I love his evilness!!!! Normally, he is the brave good kind of a character, but in this movie, he nailed the anti-hero role!!
It was brilliant, funny, exciting, enjoyable and so much more!! I haven't seen a movie like this for some time now and I'm so happy. I'm high on my happiness haha!!
I am so going to buy the DVD!!
