  • That Time of Year

    That Time of Year

    ★★★★

    A modern danish christmas classic.

  • X2

    X2

    ★★★★

    I forgot how absolutely awesome this is. It feels like everything that makes X-men cool is in it. From Bobby coming out just to hear "have you tried not being a mutant" to nightcrawlers cool action scenes only topped by the religious subtheme in his talk with Storm.
    The only thing I dislike is that the whole Stryke/Wolverine has been done to death by now which makes it a bit boring, even though this was the first time. All in…

  • The Name of the Rose

    The Name of the Rose

    ★★★★

    Exciting film portraying an interesting theme during extreme times. An excellent perfomance from one of my childhood heroes. R.I.P Sean Connery

  • The Wailing

    The Wailing

    ★★★★

    What a ride. This movie changes genre with every plottwist and takes the audience along for the ride. I can't wait to rewatch this one.

  • Minority Report

    Minority Report

    ★★★★

    The premise is cool as hell, the acting is surprisingly good a lot of the time and there are just so many cool ideas about what the future might look like. There are quite a few awkward exposition scenes and the movie looks like shit (seriously what is up with the light?) but all in all this was almost as good as I remembered it.

  • Memories of Murder

    Memories of Murder

    ★★★★

    This left me with a bad taste in my mouth - in a good way.
    I don't know whose side I was on for most of the film and everytime i was sure I new who the bad guys and good guys were, the next scene proved me wrong.
    All in all this got me thinking and made me not look away from the screen for two hours. Worth a watch and several rewatches!

  • The Chaser

    The Chaser

    ★★★★

    This was discusting, disturbing and unpleasant to watch. I absolutely loved it!

  • The Invisible Man

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★★

    Boy, I love how horror has become better and better the last couple of years. When i saw the teaser for this I thought to myself that it would be an amazing premise to play around with cameraangles showing empty rooms and just giving me the creeps instead of jumpscaring me.
    The invisible man delivered in full. No cheap tricks, just a quite well constructed story and some SOLID acting by Moss (not so much by some of the supporting…

  • The Handmaiden

    The Handmaiden

    ★★★★

    Another masterpiece from Park Chan-wook. The Handmaiden works with powerful themes like forbidden love, revenge and dominance and does so in a new and provocative fashion. The film works best when it dares to work seriously with the themes and loses me slightly when it sometimes becomes a little bit silly.

    All in all this is a masterpiece both visually and storywise and every bit as good as some other korean highlights like Oldboy, I saw the Devil and Parasite

  • John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    ★★★★

    Expanding upon this mysterious universe without being scared of abandoning the status quo. This might be the prettiest of the John Wick movies and aside from a few cliché lines and one bad fight scene I found this to be more than good enough to fit into one of the best action trilogies ever made.
