Samuel Dashiell Hammett

Years ago I read Samuel Dashiell Hammett‘s The Maltese Falcon, only after I saw the homonym movie starring Humphrey Bogart and Mary Astor.

The other day I have finish to read The Thin Man, also written by Hammett, and now I am curious to watch the movie directed by W.S. Van Dyke. There are few lines in the book that caught my attention, and this one from the very end is like some sort of an essence for The Thin Man:

Murder doesn’t round out anybody’s life except the murdered’s and sometimes the murderer’s.

Teasers 2014

From trailer to trailer on YouTube in order to correlate the ratings on IMDB and RottenTomatoes with what a movie has to offer, eventually I reached some 2014 teasers that captured my attention. I thought that they deserves our attention, so this is a post to point them out of the crowd.

There are only three movies (there must be a number connection with Three Years After!):

  • Winter’s Tale,
  • The Prototype, and
  • Jupiter Ascending.

Winter’s Tale

A burglar falls for an heiress as she dies in his arms. When he learns that he has the gift of reincarnation, he sets out to save her. (

Stars: Colin Farrell, Russell Crowe, William Hurt, Will Smith

The Prototype

A government agent stumbles upon an alien conspiracy to conquer Earth. Using a blue liquid created by the aliens to make soldiers stronger, he becomes The Prototype-the only hope for mankind. (

Jupiter Ascending

In the future, a young destitute human woman gets targeted for assassination by the Queen of the Universe, and begins her destiny to finish the Queen’s reign. (
