  • Scarface

    Scarface

    ★★★½

    I never quite understood the hype. Don't get me wrong, the film is good. It is just not THAT good. Mainly it is an hour too long. i might also have compared it too much to the godfather which is just never fair to a movie.

  • Love Actually

    Love Actually

    ★★★½

    I know there are a lot of problems with this one but I can excuse a lot of things and truth be told, I am always surprised how sweet this film is. However, I will never forgive making lovely Martine McCutcheon seem 'chubby' when nobody mentions how very undernourished Keira Knightly is.

  • Rambo: First Blood Part II

    Rambo: First Blood Part II

    ★★★

    As a kid I wanted the Rambow with those cool exploding arrowheads. I still do.

  • The Lego Batman Movie

    The Lego Batman Movie

    ★★★

    I wish I had a kid to watch this with. It really is an excellent family film. It's not condescending and it actually understand the universe of Batman quite well. It is, of course, also silly and I did feel weird watching this alone at the age og 27.

  • Summer of 84

    Summer of 84

    ★★★

    Rich Sommers is amazing. Aside from that I was hoping for a twist all the way through this film to make it something other than just another rear window copy. I guess that suspension did make it worth my time but i would never want to rewatch this since there exists so many movies with the exact same plot.

  • Boogie Nights

    Boogie Nights

    ★★★½

    Boogie Nights did something to me that few films do: It managed to shock me at that full frontal nude scene with Rollergirl.

    It was also boring at times and I didn't feel a lot when it ended. The first half was definitely the better one, mainly just because it was too long.

  • Vertigo

    Vertigo

    ★★★★

    The story is wonderfully complicated and the themes are interesting.

  • Logan

    Logan

    ★★★★½

    The understanding of Wolverines character and the difference from that and how Logan sees himself is what drives this movie (and what gave it it's R-rating which it so deserves). All the action and blood comes next. This is not a superhero movie but a character driven action drama that just happens to be about a (former?) Superhero.

    The feeling of consequence makes this adaption my favorite version of the later years of Logan. Unlike Nolan's Batman that sits as an isolated trilogy, I actually feel like this is official canon in the story of the Wolverine.

  • Jingle All the Way

    Jingle All the Way

    ★★★

    JAMIE. JAMIE. JAMIE.
    A gem from a time when bombs and rape-wibes were still funny.

  • Green Room

    Green Room

    ★★★★½

    This is one of the most realistic and 'real' movie I have seen. The practical effects are so well made that it pretty much could be real. The characters are all thinking almost exactly the same as I would have in their situations which is so rare in film today. If you like thrillers, please watch this one

  • Avengers: Infinity War

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★½

    The perfect culmination. Might be the first and only superhero movie since Nolans trilogy that understood that half of a good superhero movie is made from the villian. Thanos has depth, a proper motive, a touching sacrifice. I could keep rambling but this is a masterpiece in the art of following up and concluding on set-ups. Let's leave it at that.

  • The Dark Knight Rises

    The Dark Knight Rises

    ★★★★½

    It is hard to follow up on (almost) perfection. Rises isn't as good as its predecessor but it is close enough to be very worthy of ending the best superhero trilogy in history.
