  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★★★½

    Somehow I was underwhelmed when I left the IMAX cinema. Not because Dune wasn't exactly what I wanted it to be but perhaps because it was exactly that. I didnt see any new inovative takes on the universe or anything I didn't expect. I got exactly what I imagined in my head when i read Frank Herbert's Dune. Just like I felt with Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy I was left feeling "well, sure. That was Dune ...…

  • Luca

    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.

  • Midsommar

    Midsommar

    ★★★★½

    A toxic relationship, anxiety, bad trips, cultural relativity and a fucked up cult.

    This film is a modern classic and never have anxiety been shown this well before. It is ballsy as hell from Ari Aster to make something this artistic in a world where test-audiences and producers make sure for every movie to be made from the same template.

    The acting is amazing. The score is mainly drones or silence which works just so well. The story is deep…

  • Avengers: Endgame

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★½

    Where Infinity War had me having goosebumps constantly, End Game managed to have me crying more than just a couple if times even though I have seen it multiple times before. I do appreciate the feminist touch on the film but I really think the 'girl power' fight scene gets too on the nose. That is, however the only bad thing I can think of at all and this together with Infinity War is probably the best super hero epic we'll ever have.

  • Soul

    Soul

    ★★★★½

    What a disaster that this wont hit the big screen. My favorite pixar film to date is a piece on enjoying what you get out of life and that spoke to me. Just like in Inside Out Pete Docter takes something incredibly complex and shows it through a simple allegory.
    It is also a movie with very grown up themes that might be better for grown ups than for kids.

  • Avengers: Infinity War

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★½

    Despite of some silly moments, especially with the Guardians of the Galaxy, this is one of the best action films of all times. Getting goosebumbs so many times from start to finish.

  • The Dark Knight Rises

    The Dark Knight Rises

    ★★★★½

    Everything about this has already been said. A god damn action masterpiece

  • Batman Begins

    Batman Begins

    ★★★★½

    The worst movie of the trilogy is still a god damn masterpiece!

  • The Rock

    The Rock

    ★★★★½

    One of the best dumb actions films of all times. It also never gets old!

  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★★★½

    Jay Jay knows exactly how I like my Star Wars. Even better on the second watch where you don't have to focus on all the different threads that needed to be fixed after the wreck that was The Last Jedi.

  • Inception

    Inception

    ★★★★½

    This is how you do exposition th right way folks.
