It is certainly that almost all movie lovers will not miss Despicable Me 2. Some of them have to wait longer before the film was released. I actually included that missed out because when this movie was released, I've never watched Despicable Me 1. So I chose to watch it first and watched Despicable Me 2 just a few days ago. It is better late than never at all. I just tried to entertain myself :). You can read the review of Despicable Me 1 here : http://www.reviewcinema.com/2013/08/despicable-me-2010.html. Back to Despicable Me 2, the film still comes with the same main character, such as Dr. Gru (Steve Carell), three adopted children (Margo, Edith and Agnez), Dr. Nefario (Russell Brand) and of course the most adorable, Minion.

At this time, I am fond of horror movies. I do not know why, but after watching The Conjuring, I want to add the frequency of watching horror movies. Although The Conjuring that directed by James Wan is not included in the list of favorites on this blog, but the spooky scenes and a surprising one in the film was able to make me unable to sleep one night because imagined the scene. Now, James Wan re-work on horror track, with Insidious 2, which is a sequel of Insidious 1. Because I've been watching Insidious 1, of course I would not miss this film, I also wonder if James Wan will repeat the success of The Conjuring

This is my first time I watched The Departed and the main reason is Leonardo DiCaprio. I am a fan of Leonardo DiCaprio. But without my realized, I have watched this movie before, but its Hong Kong version, titled Infernal Affairs. Infernal Affairs was released in 2002 and of course I have forgotten the story, because it was very long. I only remember the main story and the two big names in the film, Andy Lau and Tony Leung. Infernal Affairs also has a prequel, Infernal Affairs II and a sequel, Infernal Affairs III. On this review I will share The Departed. The story is about two people who have different backgrounds but have the same ideals to become a cop.
