  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 18 May, 2015

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This score is mostly for the sound design and imagery. It's an action movie. No more, no less. A lot of guns, a lot of car chases. A lot of explosions and near death experiences. But even though I don't usually enjoy action flicks I was quite entertained (not only by the sound and cinematography)

    On a side note: I do't get why MRAs are so upset with this movie. Yes, there are only male antagonists and the female cast is badass. But in the end it's still our male hero who has the greatest ideas and saves the day.

  • Ex Machina

    Ex Machina 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 28 Apr, 2015

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A story that keeps the heart and the mind racing and touches several important questions of the present without being too crowded or sloppy.

    Still I can't help but wonder: what is this "new" form of portraying women as the ultimate cold hearted evil that plays with and takes advantage of men? (see also: Gone Girl). Seemingly finally focusing on women as strong characters but in reality still transferring traditionally "male" attributes onto them, which - in case of men viewed as positive - are twisted into despicable qualities. It seems nothing is really changing over the decades of Hollywood.

    Her 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 31 Mar, 2014

    Studying in the field of media, this film already touched a lot of topics that are not only on my mind. As a human being though, I was touched even to the core. 7 billion people on this planet going through the same fears and emotions and still feeling as if they're struggling on their own. It didn't show me anything new, but it confirmed something: the weakness of the human heart is simultaneously devastating and beautiful.

    Dylan Moran: Monster 2004

    ★★★★½ Watched 20 May, 2013

    "Well, to be honest, after years of smoking and drinking, you do sometimes look at yourself and know, just sometimes, in between the first cigarette with coffee in the morning to that four hundredth glass of cornershop piss at 3am, you do sometimes look at yourself and think... this is fantastic. I'm in heaven."
