  • Roma

    Roma

    ★★★

    Yes, it is beautiful and the cinematpgraphy is excellent. I also think the story in genuinly touching. However, It is also boring as hell and lasts forever. As somebody who puts a lot of value into the story or films, this has a way to artistic tempo. So many of the scenes are not necesary and seems like they are only there for aeatetic reason. Also, why in gods name is this not in color?
    It's sad because it does have a great story about the rough reality of being a woman in mexicos 1970's that i do want to watch.

  • Dragged Across Concrete

    Dragged Across Concrete

    ★★★

    Although not as good as his two earlier films, this still shows promise. In a way it feels like Zahler is 'playing' with the medium in a Tarantino-esqu way.

  • Batman

    Batman

    ★★★

    Holy smokes, I'm happy we got Nolan's Batman. This one is completely outshone by newer adaptations of the world's greatest detective.
    I did like Nicholsons quite original version of the Joker though. I don't get the hype around keaton's batman though. He seems more goofy than excentric and more clumsy than somebody who knows martial arts and beats up bad guys. Don't get me wrong, I lobe keaton's acting. It just isn't the Batman that I've come to love from later adaptations.

  • Apocalypse Now

    Apocalypse Now

    ★★★

    Watched this for the first time and chose the Redux version. Definitely a mistake. It is absolutely stunning visually and audiowise and the plot isn't halfbad either. However, it was just way too long to keep my interest peaked, mainly because of the lack of scenes that felt necesary to the plot.
    In short: A boring visual masterpiece
    Perhaps it gets better with a rewatch.

  • Widows

    Widows

    ★★★

    This is how you create strong female leads.

    It was a joy to watch three of the most badass women struggle with love, intimacy, friendship and with the men in whose shadow they have stood in too long.

    Definitely a fine heist movie even though it doesn't bring much new, plotwise, to a genre that has been done to death.

  • Mary and the Witch's Flower

    Mary and the Witch's Flower

    ★★★

    So much potential during the first acts. The drawing style was absolutely amazing and I loved the world building that wasn't afraid of clichés that still work. However, after Mary finds the book the universe seems to shrink and all of a sudden feels empty and small where only the main characters exist.

    I'm happy that handdrawn animation movies survived the retirement of Miyazaki though, and I am looking forward to seing this new studio take up the mantle and refine the formula.

  • 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.

  • Jingle All the Way

    Jingle All the Way

    ★★★

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

  • Mission: Impossible III

    Mission: Impossible III

    ★★★

    The first two acts of this film is great. In the thirds, however, the movie does rap up too quickly and that in turn makes it feel consequenceless. There is no PTSD or aftermath whatsoever.
    Phillip Seymour Hoffman could have been the series' best villian if we had got to know him and his motives. The other villian has barely any motive at all either and what he does have makes no sense. Both of them are offed during five minutes being so much of an anticlimax that it makes me feel like J.J. Abrams was in a hurry to finish up.

  • Mission: Impossible II

    Mission: Impossible II

    ★★★

    Yes, yes I know this is shitty. I still absolutely love it though. Perhaps not as a Mission Impossible movie but as one of those iconic action movies that defined the 1990s and my childhood.
