• Kill List

    Kill List

    I really admire this movie and it should be right down my alley, but… now I’ve watched it twice, and for some reason it’s really sleep inducing to me. And I don’t get it. So.. Maybe I don’t like it?

    I don’t know, I’m honestly really confused. The baseline: I don’t understand what’s going on and even though I’m intrigued to find out, I kind of fall asleep when watching it. The end is probably dark and twisted, but I have no idea what it’s about.

  • The Empty Man

    The Empty Man

    Full of original ideas and very trippy, this hidden gem certainly worked for me. And it’s spoooooky!

  • A Quiet Place

    A Quiet Place

    The first time I saw “A Quiet Place”, it underwhelmed me but I brushed it off and thought that it was just me, that somehow ‘wasn’t quite there’ and that it actually was great. But upon rewatch  I have to admit, that I don’t think it works.

    Don’t get me wrong. I like it and I respect it. It has an original premise, all the performances are great, it’s well directed and the cinematography is beautiful. But a couple of…

  • Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

    Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

    This is much more fun and pleasant than it looks like. I don't care how faithful it is to the original, but I do care, that its four stars all devotes themselves to actually portray the kid characters that they are suppose to embody. This makes it all feel sincere and genuine as opposed to just silly. The Rock is great, but watching Jack Black playing a 16 year old popular girl was just so surprisingly funny, that I was almost in awe.

    So, despite its sillyness and simplicity, this is actually an almost great adventure family flick.

  • Hunter Hunter

    Hunter Hunter

    A hard-hitting gut-punch of a movie and I absolutely loved it! The prospect of a wolf creature-feature did not excite me, but this is as much horror as anything else. It has the feeling of both A Quiet Place and It Comes at Night but combined with something even more brutal. The performances are all great, the score is AMAZING and the story is tight and well-crafted through and through. Maybe it lacked a payoff for one or two setups,…

  • The Vast of Night

    The Vast of Night

    Achieves impressively much within in its micro-budget frame of work. Moody, fascinating and definitely worth a watch even though, I can't shake the feeling that an even better movie hides within The Vast of Night.

  • Nomadland

    Nomadland

    Magnificent. I can’t wait to see what Chloe Zhao does with The Eternals!

  • Memories of Murder

    Memories of Murder

    “Memories of Murder” is brutal and funny in equal parts, though the feeling that lingers with you long after the end credits is the unsettling notion of how an unspeakable evil may be hiding in plain, mundane sight.

  • Friends: The Reunion

    Friends: The Reunion

    It’s kind of a disgrace that this was the best they could come up with. I was all ready to ger soaked up in cheesy nostalgia (because I genuinely love ‘Friends’), but instead I got a confusing and polished mess where no one seemed to know why they were there except just to be there. Justin Bieber in the sputnik suit and a Lady Gaga cover of Smelly Cat was among the low points. And James Corden.

    Hopefully it will serve as a commercial against botox and plastic surgery, though.

  • Sound of Metal

    Sound of Metal

    Deserving of all its praise, ‘The Sound of Metal’ is a masterful film about being lost and loosing the most precious thing you (think you) have, only to realise that happiness comes from within yourself.

    Shout out to all the brilliant filmmakers, that created this movie!

  • Groundhog Day

    Groundhog Day

    It’s still fine.

  • Army of the Dead

    Army of the Dead

    How come so many american reviewers (whom I normally agree on most things with) praised this for being a fun, dumb and kind-of-great Snyder-film? It is absolute trash. I don’t find a single redeeming quality about this movie. It is ugly to look at, it has no charm whatsoever, all of its characters are one-dimensional assholes who behave wildly inconsistently from one scene to the next and the plot is just… I mean, we all remember how bad the sequel…
