  • The Fault in Our Stars 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Sep, 2014

    Three things to say about 'Fault'.

    Story.. meh!
    Ansel Elgort.. meh, but he got better about halfway through.
    Shailene Woodley.. is as always, GREAT!

  • Noah 2014

    ★★ Watched 06 Sep, 2014 2

    What? Noah had schizophrenia, a beautiful wife and won the Nobel Prize? I am confused.

  • Gone Baby Gone 2007

    ★★★★½ Watched 01 Sep, 2014

    Gone baby gone
    a thriller like no one,
    with excellent twists, tres bonne.

    Casey A. is frigging amazing,
    every time I see him,
    my vocabulary go'a'praising.

    About time the villain was Morgen Freeman,
    even though he's not
    the regular demon.

    I have no shame,
    nor no self critique,
    my poetry is nothing but lame.

  • The Zero Theorem 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 28 Aug, 2014

    Why so serious?

    Go Gilliam! Go Gilliam!

  • Before Midnight 2013

    ★★★ Watched 23 Aug, 2014

    I disagree.

    This is not the grand finale, it's the poorest of the lot.

    For the first time this thing, this trilogy, feels scripted. Especially the dinner party at the beginning of the film. It's not nourishing, desperate and genuine at that stage, it's acting.

    I have adored the Before films for feeling genuine and having seamless scripts so good you don't even notice it's there.

    Not this time. It kinda blew the illusion for me now. Bugger.

  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2 2014

    ★½ Watched 22 Aug, 2014

    Don't believe in neither Harry Osborne, Electro, Gwen or Spider-Man for that sake. I think the comedy is misplaced and the stereotypes to dumb. I think the songs that they integrate into the film and characters are just a poor idea. The German gay scientist. COME OOON!

    Andrew Garfield is better than Toby Maguire, but that's almost it for praise. I do not like this reboot.

  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 19 Aug, 2014

    What I like about the Marvel universe and the last few years of films is what the Marvel-fans know all the way. How everything is attached, how one character, however dead and destroyed, are not out of the game. This film is in every way a good representative. There are resurrections everywhere.

    How they already have back-story to play on, old motifs to use, and villains who wont die, already... after just a few films.. it's gold. It makes me think and evaluate, remember and serves me (in broad daylight) ahaaa-experiences.

    I love Marvel-films.

  • Le Week-End 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Aug, 2014

    First off, it's sold off as a romantic odd-ball comedy, with age, love and experience as ingredients. It is not your standard rom-com with good actors, it's something quite different. It's not a warning, just a pointer on where this film actually goes.

    It's a bit like Certified Copy, but not that challenging or "odd".

    The film is easily parted into two parts.

    The first has lovely written dialogue, some prime actors doing what they do best, and a very…

  • Man on a Ledge 2012

    ★★½ Watched 14 Aug, 2014

    I think this has tons of qualities. Good, exiting story. Well told. Well executed.

    But the film has at least one (tremendous) errors that I am having a big problem looking past.

    It's perhaps using all the wrong people in the wrong places? Who on earth would cast Elizabeth Banks as the worn down negotiator?

    The first scene she's in. Tired, hung over, regretting everything in her life. I am just waiting for her to tell a bad joke. It's…

  • The Next Three Days 2010

    ★★ Watched 07 Aug, 2014

    Nice twists. Too long..

    Unbelievable plot. Unbelievable indeed.

    Brian Dennehy! Wasted talent!!

    Olivia Wilde! Wasted talent!!!

  • Citizen X 1995

    ★★★★ Rewatched 07 Aug, 2014

    One of the 90's most under appreciated thrillers. I remember thinking Stephen Rea would really be a big star after this. But no one saw it. Ever. Really a shame. It's great.

  • Divergent 2014

    ★★★ Watched 06 Aug, 2014

    I went in, trying to give it a fair chance, knowing the hammering it has gotten in the last few months.

    My first reaction was this is Hunger Games without the kid-killings. That can, in fact, only be good.
    But it's not.

    Hunger Games can be accused of being creative, inventive and broader, compared to Divergent. This is more shallow, more standardized and to tell the truth quite boring.

    But that sums up just about every tweens film of resent…
