  • Film Geek 2005

    ★★★½ Watched 08 Aug, 2014

    The ending was god awful but I did enjoy the film up until that point.

  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 20 Jul, 2014

    Just as fine as the first one. These films really stand out in the Hollywood scene, they have long scenes without any dialogue which forces the writers to actually put in some effort in their writing. And with effort comes watchable drama. Technical outstanding, the apes looked great, I liked the action scenes and the camera at some point was excellent. (The scene with a tank and some spinning I really loved the camerawork).

    It was good and I am looking forward to more of these not only because it takes some effort to make, but also for the excellent technical shizzwazz.

  • Why Don't You Play in Hell? 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 07 Jun, 2014

    I don't know what it is but Sono has always made me love his movies , even tho I feel that these are films that has the potential to be really bad. There aren't really happening much the first 90 minutes of this film, yet I am invested in it. I think it is because his editing style and dialogue is really something else.

    Take "Exte: Hair Extensions" for example. It's just a normal generic j-horror, but still it feels…

  • 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")
