    Apart from the improbable deus ex machina at the end, this is a very good film that constantly makes you angry because of the injustices that are portrayed.

  • The Big Short

    Margot Robbie in a hottub teaching me about economics: nice! Also very good acting by everyone (yes even by Ryan Gosling which is rare in my opinion).

  • Gladiator

    Actually, I was kind of entertained @Maximus.

  • Uncut Gems

    Uncut Gems

    When you think it can't get any worse, it does. I have never felt so sorry for such an annoying character. Great film and also the proof that Adam Sandler is so much more than just a comic actor.

  • Dallas Buyers Club

    Dallas Buyers Club

    This film has a bit of everything. It is funny at some times, exciting at others and above all tragic. This film made me realise that Jared Leto is indeed more than a failed Joker. His chemistry with Matthew McConaughey splashes off the screen. A very good film that tells a relevant part of American history that is often forgotten.

  • Marriage Story

    Marriage Story

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I watched this film without any expectations and was overwhelmed by the fantastic story. What starts as a relatively peaceful divorce escalates exponentially into a fierce battle for the custody of their child. Great dramatic script! The acting of both Adam Driver and (the incredibly handsome) Scarlet Johansson is fantastic. Laura Dern, who won an Oscar for her part, was a bit over the top, but certainly not bad. It is a cruel film that nevertheless ends with a small spark of hope. Highly recommended!

  • Soul

    Once again, Pixar comes up with a wonderfully accessible story about a difficult and inaccessible subject. Everything about this film, from the visuals to the incredible soundtrack, is genius. The only thing I liked less was the choice made at the end, but being a film for children that is understandable. Well-deserved Oscars.
