  • The Signal 2014

    ★★★ Watched 05 Oct, 2014

    Much style, not much substance. The story was predictable and nothing made any sense. I have so many questions. Reminded me of Prometheus when it comes to plot holes.

    But sure it looked nice. Good CGI and some cool visuals. The start was good and atmospheric, but as the film went on, stuff started to crumble.

  • They Shoot Horses, Don't They? 1969

    ★★★★★ Watched 02 Sep, 2014

    "I used to love to look at he ocean, walk by it, just sit and listen to it. Now I don't care if I ever see it again."

  • To Each His Own Cinema 2007

    ★★★★ Watched 07 Jul, 2012 4

    Film with a bunch of shorts directed by well knows directors. A film about the love for cinema, by the people behind cinema itself. I enjoyed most of it, but some of it was pretty bad. My ratings:

    10 Atom Egoyan (segment "Artaud Double Bill")
    09 Ming-liang Tsai (segment "It's a Dream")
    09 Lars von Trier (segment "Occupations")
    09 David Cronenberg (segment "At the Suicide of the Last Jew in the World in the Last Cinema in the World")
