• Logan

    Logan

    ★★★★

    A mad scientist with a Trump tan hunting down the future of the world (mostly Mexicans) at the border. Big corporations with GMO crops pushing out ”the little man” . Dehumanisation has left people ”not so human” fighting for their survival, as machines with their masters take over the world. Like a Terminator 2 – Judgement Day for the 21th century. A bleak and cynical image of near future America, and humanity as a whole. And in this world yet…

  • Duel at Diablo

    Duel at Diablo

    ★★★

    I don't know if it's the fact that I'm getting old or that I am a mother (or a combination of both) that made me react more than once over how insanely dangerous the stunts in this movie is. Just watching those wagons with wooden tires being pulled by horses in full speed over rocky terrain made me really worried. And speaking of rocks, all the men and horses falling down on the very same surface looked really dangerous and…

  • Planet Earth II

    Planet Earth II

    ★★★★

    It has been 10 years since the first Planet Earth came out, and have since been an inspiration to right about every nature documentary up to date. With this said, Planet Earth II doesn't have much new to offer, but it sure is stunning either way.

    But camerawork aside, the set-up of the individual episodes sure are uninspired and predictable, leaving me wishing for more as we in rapid paste move from islands, through deserts, grasslands, jungles, mountains and finally…

  • Shin Godzilla

    Shin Godzilla

    ★★★½

    It's easy to feel sympathy for an animal, even though it is a monster doing monstrous acts. I can remember crying when Godzilla lost the battle in the American 2014 remake, and I have always rooted on the giant mutated lizard in every version I've seen. Because, at least the animal has the excuse of being just that; an animal... and I really enjoy watching giant manmade structures being torn down.

    With this said, there's something different about Shin Godzilla

  • Beauty and the Beast

    Beauty and the Beast

    ★★★★

    Around this time of the year my boyfriend, since 9 years, tells me about his mother's grandparents. They were madly in love and married young. The sad thing is that the grandfather Valentin was a hopeless drunk, and one day he got so drunk that he fell asleep outside in the snow and froze to death. The grandmother lived her life alone after that, for 60 years! Telling everyone that she couldn't picture a life with another man, that the…

  • The Cynic, the Rat & the Fist

    The Cynic, the Rat & the Fist

    ★★★½

    The plot is quite simple: We have a Cop that is supposed to be dead and two gang leaders that are getting set up to hate each other. One against two, two against one in a 70s Rome with plenty of Fiats, mustaches, thick rugs of chest hair and the most slapped around women in the world of cinema.

    Maurizio Merli plays the part of the cop (Tanzi); a man that talks with his fists and squint with his turquoise…

  • The Beast Within

    The Beast Within

    ★★★½

    Keep your eyes on the road "Dick Jones"! Full moon, a creature of the night free of its shackles, a barking dog and a life changing event. Then we're taken 17 years forward in time. A chemical imbalance. An occult malignancy in his system. Someone got to know something, and there is more than one person in the small town of Nioba that are keeping dark secrets. Like that creepy coroner, for instance.

    A stigma, young love and nature versus…

  • Kingsman: The Secret Service

    Kingsman: The Secret Service

    ★★½

    I watched this movie some days ago while taking a welcomed break from everything shitty that was going on in my life at that time. It became the perfect movie for that, but I've seldom been so uninspired to write anything about it. I've now given it some time and I still can't see a reason to write something proper, but today I stumbled upon some notes I made while watching it, and I thought that I at least would…

  • Green Room

    Green Room

    ★★★★½

    There are a lot of unwritten rules when it comes to the punk culture I grew up with. From everything to the clothes you wore and the bands you should listen to. And I guess that the question "is that really punk?" is one that been asked ever since Sex Pistols got way more popular than they ever thought they would be.
    I mention this because it's pretty clear that there are some things being said about this in Green…

  • The Tree of Life

    The Tree of Life

    ★★½

    In one of my many weaker moments, I had forgotten who I really was and thrown myself at this movie with high expectations. With this having forgotten why I hadn't done this years ago. Not that I ever thought that I wouldn't appreciate it (it's right up my alley in more ways than one), but there were three main reasons why I'd hesitated for all these years:


    Reason 1: The Cast

    There's often no real reason to cast really famous…

  • National Lampoon's Vacation

    National Lampoon's Vacation

    ★★★½

    The Griswald family is my go to when everything around me falls to pieces, while Chevy Chase reminds me of that it's important to stay positive just as that it's OK to be pathetic and mad sometimes.

    I grew up watching National Lampoon's Vacation and have watched it sporadically in my adult years. Watching it now in 2017, it's fun to try to picture how it would've played out today. Because, the format of being fun for both adults and…

  • Devil Worship: The Rise of Satanism

    Devil Worship: The Rise of Satanism

    ★★½

    If you stream this one on youtube, you get thrown into other "documentaries" the production company has to offer. Like The Evolution Conspiracy "A breath taking documentary feuturing leading scientists around the world attempting to unravel the mystery of evolution and, in the process, uncovering what may be the most incredible hoax of the century" And Gods of the New Age: "A fascinating and disturbing motion picture which traces the history and occult origins of today's New Age philosophy. From…
