  • You Don't Know Jack 2010

    ★★★½ Watched 26 Feb, 2015

    A good and informative biopic on a crusader for euthanasia. I still have no idea what the right thing to do is, but at least this tells a lot about one side of the debate.

  • The Number 23 2007

    ★★ Watched 25 Feb, 2015

    One giant 'Meh'. It's not scary at all (not complaining about that), but the story falls flat as well. The main premise of the number doesn't make any sense as you're obviously gonna find whatever number you want if you keep looking for it everywhere. The main plot twist was a little unexpected (to me) but it didn't save the movie.

    Probably the only part that I enjoyed a little were the Sin City-like flashbacks with the film noir commentary.

    Nu redz, noskatījos tā arī nekļuvis par vesternu ekspertu, bet nesūdzos, jo, ja vecu vesternu skatīšanās varētu iespaidot manu viedokli, tad tikai uz negatīvo pusi. Neatradu neko, kam piekasīties, un pāris stundas pēc filmas noskatīšanās joprojām liels smaids pār lūpām.

    Lielisks sajaukums starp nopietno un komisko. Tarantino drūmā humora izjūta strādā, kā ierasts, liekot pat sievietes nošaušanai izraisīt šķību smaidu, nofilmējot to pareizajā veidā un kontekstā. Par šaudīšanos runājot, biju pat pārsteigts cik liela filmas daļa bija bez asinīm, bet…
