    High Fidelity

    ★★★½

    A film about a giant pretentious, cheating hypocritical asshole who learns basic lifelessons about love way too late in life and his really cool girlfriend who rightly tries to leave him.

    It is also a charming film with a bunch of cool music and some great side characters with excellent acting.

    ★★★½

    This sounds so dumb but it's done so well!

    I've been hestitant to watch it because the premise sounded kinda lame. Boy am I happy, I finaly put it on. Keanu and Bullock are both hot, charming and badass as hell and just from that I'm rooting for them. Considdering a premise that should demand a lot of characters talking bad descisions to make the plot work, everybody in this one actually acts rationally. Cool action, great chemistry between characters, an allright villain and that 90's action charm makes this an amazing friday night film!

    Conan the Barbarian

    ★★½

    What a weird film. I can see why it's a cult-classic, being part art film, part b-movie and part Arnold.
    The score is amazing, the effects are quite good but a lot of the scenes are just... Weird. We get a LOT of montages but almost no speech and when people finaly talk it's pure clumsy exposition.

  • Loki

    Loki

    ★★★½

    Just like WandaVision I loved some of the episodes and kinda disliked some of them. The first two episodes were kinda silly, but in a fun and campy doctor who way.
    Episode three was straight up subpar. The effects in that episode are weirdly bad, the acting is quite b-movie like and the love affair goes way too fast to be realistic.
    Episode 6 is what justifies the series with a COOL ending that is gonna shake up the MCU just like the battle for New York did it in Avengers.

    28 Weeks Later

    ★★½

    Fun to watch post-corona but boy was this worse than I remembered. Shaky cam all the time to cover bad effects. Wierd inverse deus-ex zombies who always show up exactly where they need to be regardless of whether it's realistic.

  • Raya and the Last Dragon

    Raya and the Last Dragon

    ★★½

    This is wildly overrated.
    The first half is pure clunky exposition. The second half is pure clichées.

    After watching Luca earlier today which did so much with so little, this tries so hard and doesn't get there. We get a story about litterally saving the world and bringing piece and harmony and along that, we never really get to know our protagonist at all.
    Aside from that, I'm not sure who this is meant for. The plot is convoluted and…

    Luca

    ★★★★½

    This is cute, simple and full of loveable characters.
    I had tears in the corner of my eyes and a wide smile on my lips through the entire thing.
    Luca is a classic coming of age film with classical themes like letting go of your children, outgrowing friends but realizing that you can be friends despite being different and of course realizing who you really are. I absolutely love that Pixar wasn't more ambitious with this one. The world isn't at stake, and it doesn't always have to be.

  • Love, Death & Robots: Pop Squad

    Love, Death & Robots: Pop Squad

    ★★★★½

    This perfectly captures how mortality is (wo)mankinds biggest gift and how we constantly fight it. It is certainly one of, if not the, best episode of both seasons.

    It could easily be adapted to a bigger feature film.

  • Love, Death & Robots: Ice

    Love, Death & Robots: Ice

    ★★½

    So it's a dune ripoff with icewhales. I know some people like this animation style but I never did.

  • Love, Death & Robots: Lucky 13

    Love, Death & Robots: Lucky 13

    ★★★

    While pretty and entertaining it didn't really touch me or do much other than entertain.

  • Love, Death & Robots: Helping Hand

    Love, Death & Robots: Helping Hand

    ★★★

    What a nighmare. Basicly the space version of the first saw movie.

  • Love, Death & Robots: Fish Night

    Love, Death & Robots: Fish Night

    ★★★

    Not my favorite style of animation but different and cool. The concept was cool but didn't move me like the best of these
