Undertow [2004]

Genre: Drama, Thriller

The Munns, father John and sons Chris and Tim, recede to the woods of rural Georgia. Their life together is forever changed with the arrival of Uncle Deel...

Well, it's a good movie, but little boring. And weird. What to tell? Some scenes are unnecessarily, but the movie, in general, is solid. 

Stars:  Jamie Bell (Chris Munn), Josh Lucas (Deel Munn) and Dermot Mulroney (John Munn)

The Collector [2009]

He always takes one

Genre: Crime, Horror. Thriller

Desperate to repay his debt to his ex-wife, an ex-con plots a heist at his new employer's country home, unaware that a second criminal has also targeted the property, and rigged it with a series of deadly traps.

This is so not logical. But, it's fun to watch. I've watched it with my friend and it was totally great. Try.

Stars: Josh Stewart (Arkin), Andrea Roth (Victoria Chase) and Juan Fernández (The Collector)

Charlie St. Cloud

Life is for living

Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Drama

I don't like dramas, but this one is different. It's not usual and it's new. Creative. I loved the movie. Zac Efron is great actor. I don't like that disney stars, but he is great actor, especially in this movie.

Stars: Zac Efron (Charlie St. Cloud), Charlie Tahan (Sam St. Cloud), Amanda Crew (Tess Carroll)

Sasvim sam popubertetio (Sanja Pilić)

I never write about our Croatian books, but this one is great. Title is something like "I'm totally in puberty". It's great book for teens. 
I will not write a lot about this book because you probably don't know it and there's no sense.

Dead Until Dark - Sookie Stackhouse novels (Charlaine Harris)

For years, Charlaine Harris has delighted fans with her mystery series featuring small-town waitress-turned-paranormal sleuth Sookie Stackhouse. Now, we are pleased to offer her first novel in the series in a special hardcover edition. 
And with HBO launching an all-new show, True Blood, based on the Southern Vampire novels, the demand for Charlaine Harris and Sookie Stackhouse will be bigger than ever.

I LOVE it, very much. I can't decide what is better, book or True Blood. I love them both. If you're  reading this, you probably noticed that i love vampires. I love them, but that doesn't mean that I love EVERY vampire move/book. Anyway, this one is great, the best for now.

Characters: Sookie Stackhouse, Eric Northman, Bill Compton, Sam Merlotte

Hunted - A House of Nigh novel (P. C. Cast & Kristin Cast)

What if the hottest guy in the world was hiding a nameless evil, and all he wanted was you? At the start of this heart-pounding new installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey’s friends have her back again and Stevie Rae and the red fledglings aren’t Neferet’s secrets any longer. But an unexpected danger has emerged. Neferet guards her powerful new consort, Kalona, and no one at the House of Night seems to understand the threat he poses. Kalona looks gorgeous, and he has the House of Night under his spell. A past life holds the key to breaking his rapidly spreading influence, but what if this past life shows Zoey secrets she doesn’t want to hear and truths she can’t face? 

I loved it. I love HoN, in general. This book is stretched, but it's great in general. Stark is the best ;)

Characters: Zoey Redbird, Erik Night, James Stark...

The Vampire Diaries 2 - The Struggle (L. J. Smith)

Elena quickly realizes that the only thing more dangerous that being in love with a vampire is being desired by two. As Stefan struggles to suppress his instinctive thirst, Damon persists in his quest for Elena's heart. A dark turn of events forces Elena to risk her mortality to save one of her immortal suitors.

This book is better then first one, but neither is this one very good. The idea that book is based on is great, but L. J. Smith is not so good in writing. I like series more (this is not usual for me). However, if L. J. Smith didn't write books, there would not be series, so thank you, L. J. Now, I have to watch second season.

Characters: Elena Gilbert, Stefan Salvatore, Damon Salvatore
