  • Night Watch 2004

    ★★★ Added

    (This is an old review of mine, i just decided to upload it here)

    Nightwatch.

    The vampire genre has really suffered in the last decade and it's not just cause of Twilight.

    Most vamp movies ranged from mediocre (the genre confused Moonchild) to downright terrible (Ultraviolet, Queen of The Damned).

    Of course there were the few good ones out there like Shadow of The Vampire, Let the Right One In, and Nightwatch. As we find out from the opening (which…

  • Control 2007

    ★★★★ Added

    Only God can forgive this dull mess.

    I liked Drive but this is just, how shall i say it, dead. It feels like everything is pointless. I don't know why but it was decided that nobody would emote at all. Ryan Gosling in particular is blank the whole time.

    I really can't care about the characters here. They're all terrible. So i ended up frustrated and bored the whole time. I apologize to any fans but i cannot like this one.
