  • Get Out

    Get Out

    ★★★★½

    This movie put storytelling back in horrorfilms where it shines. Together with Hereditary this is one of the most important movies of the century just because it showed that one of my favorite genres can live without jumpscares.

  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★★★

    You can feel that this had to fix everything The Last Jedi fucked up and in a sense this feels like it is trying to follow up on everything from the Force Awakens. While I love the ideas, the charactars and all the sense of Star Wars that was missing in the last installment, I also feel like this is trying to get done in one film what should've been in two.
    I love J.J. Abrams for reigniting my love…

  • Casablanca

    Casablanca

    ★★★★

    There was just something about it!

  • Hush

    Hush

    ★★½

    A very standard home invasion film. I did enjoy that there were zero jump scares and the pacing was quite good.
    There were a couple of times where the people makes super weird choices to keep the plot going.

  • Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

    Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

    ★★★

    This exceeded my expectations - a lot! I went into this expecting to watch ten minutes and then shutting it down and don't get me wrong, it is filled with clichés, bad CGI and all the other things I expected.

    However, it also had that weird charm that mainly exists in 90's movies like The Mummy. Unexpectly I found myself having a lot of fun with this - dare I say it? - original successor.

  • Ip Man 2

    Ip Man 2

    ★★★

    That scene where rock... I mean Ip Man unites the british and chinese peoples and then ran home in slow motion incapsulates the entire film. It doesn't have the charm of the original and is too full of clichés and incredibly bad acting from the british actors who all seems to be dubbed. It is still an awesome fighting movie if Rocky IV isn't on any of your streaming services.

  • Bad Boys II

    Bad Boys II

    ★★★

    Charming and so overfilled with clichés that it almost hurts.

  • Ip Man

    Ip Man

    ★★★★

    While patriotic and simplistic in it's fairy tale version of a very grim war, this is still an awesome kung fu movie.

  • Bad Boys

    Bad Boys

    This is so much worse than I remember it. Despite all the clichés (and there are MANY), the thing that kills it is the action being so subpar. I don't even feel the love between Mike and Marcus that I remember from the sequel.

  • Taxi Driver

    Taxi Driver

    ★★★

    Defintely something else. If i view this as a piece of cinematic history it gets 5/5 for being the quintessential film noir art film. As a personal prefference that just doesn't speak to me much. De Niro and Foster are both excellent but the plot is unexciting.

  • Interstellar

    Interstellar

    ★★★★½

    While i did find the ending a bit of a strech i LOVED the score and the visuals. The world building, the characters and of course Mcconaughey is better than ever.

  • Toy Story 3

    Toy Story 3

    So much fun! Not often do you see number 3 in a film series actually being the best one.
