    Antlers

    ★★★

    Fantastic direction. Antlers is an incredibly atmospheric film with solid performances and a great monster design. The only problem is that the dialogue isn’t all that good and while I can enjoy a slowburn horror, this was a bit too slow for me.

    6-7/10

  • Cry Macho

    Cry Macho

    ★★★★

    Clint Eastwood is such a legend. He‘s 91 and still not only giving us good performances, but also consistently (mostly) good movies („15:17 to Paris“ being the exception).

    This film is a fun and engaging character-driven road movie with for the most part pretty good performances. Not everything in the film works, for example the way Rafa’s mother was written was atrocious, but the relationship between Eastwood’s Mike and Minett‘s Rafa works perfectly and is a joy to watch. I can excuse one bad character if the heart of the film is this moving.

    Cry Macho is Cinema for the Soul!

    7-8/10

I guess it’s philosophy is more „show, but also tell when it’s required“). It’s smart, yet simple. That being said, there are still…

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★★½

    „The Rise of Skywalker“ is almost like the complete opposite of what „The Last Jedi“ was.

    It’s fun, has a lot of Action and is filled with Fanservice. This is not a takedown on TLJ. I honestly really like that film, but it was much slower and character focused than any other Star Wars film. 

    TLJ’s and TROS‘s story themes are complete opposites of each other. TLJ was about forgetting the past and moving on. TROS is about the past…
