  • The White Tiger

    The White Tiger

    ★★★

    I remember the book as being great. It certainly portraits 'the dark' india better than something like Slumdog Millionaire (which it jabs at as well). However, I found it to half an hour too long, during which it got a bit too artsy for its' own good. The cast and the story was quite nice though - it just isn't a 2 hour story.

  • Thor: Ragnarok

    Thor: Ragnarok

    ★★★

    Probably the most overrated MCU film. Thor "Silly Tron" Ragnarok could've been amazing were it not for all the sillyness of the second act. The entire time on sakaar is just oke big joke and never feels like there's anything at stake. Hela is freaking grim and that storyline is certainly great. I just wish it were more than half of the film.

  • Onward

    Onward

    ★★★

    I wish this actually used the premise more. Magical beings in a world without magic seemed so fun but the entire movie is about two teenage boys on an adventure (seriously it does never matter one bit that they are elves). A lot of potential ended up being a movie that is just fine

  • Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah

    Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah

    ★★★

    I have a lot of love for this one even though it is a horrible movie. there at least five plotpoints too many and the effects are so 90's. The saving grace is that this isn't selfaware. It takes itself kinda seriously in all it's weirdness and that makes for one of the weirdest, worst, most entertaining films I've ever seen

  • Fargo

    Fargo

    ★★★

    I was never really invested in any of the characters as they all seemed way too weird and unlike any human beings I've ever met before ... except for Steve Buchemi who was just superb.

  • Godzilla

    Godzilla

    ★★★

    I love the concept of not having heroes og villains but just a whole country against a monster who is mainly just the embodyment of a nuclear crisis. It is also telling that I found Gojira much more frightening and lifelike in this man-in-a-suit version than most CGI monsters today. It just works.

    While I can see why this is a masterpiece I was also quite bored a lot of the time as there wasn't much of a story.

  • Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

    ★★★

    Not quite the trainwreck of the two other prequels. Still some of the worst dialogue of the series though.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Captain Marvel

    Captain Marvel

    ★★★

    Definitely worse the second time around.
    Don't get me wrong, Brie Larsson is still badass but the film just seems clunky when you cit out the surprises of the plot.
    A huge part of the dialogue is unnatural due to either forcing too much exposition or too many jokes.
