  • Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith 2005

    ★★★ Rewatched 16 Feb, 2014

    Third part of the yearly Star Wars rewatch. Final part of the prequel trilogy.

    Three years after Episode I, old George released Revenge Of The Sith. The republic finally falls and becomes the Empire we all know from the original trilogy, Anakin becoms Darth Vader and some people fight and die. Amongst them : all Jedi. Obviously as old Obi-Wan, Darth and the emperor are the last Jedi/Sith in the next trilogy. I never understood why Darth and the Emperor…

  • Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones 2002

    ★★½ Rewatched 09 Feb, 2014

    Second part of the yearly Star Wars rewatch.

    Three years after the trainwreck that was Episode I, George thought it was best to release Attack Of The Clones. Civil war between a republic and some far away planets who are building a robot army. Trade Federation anyone ? *sigh*

    Luckily Obi-Wan stumbles upon a bounty hunter who leads him to a far away planet (yup, another one) where an alien race is building a clone army for the republic. Strangely…

    Sure, it's pretty and the fights are over the top, but man, is this boring. Lame story about an orphan going to an orphanage that in her imagination turns into a brothel where she uses her imagination to hatch an escape plan ... man, I'm bored just writing this.

  • Moneyball 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 05 Aug, 2012

    True story of the manager of the Oakland Athlethics baseball team who decides to use statistics to form a new team for a small budget and take on the big guys with tons of money.
    I, like many Europeans, have zero interest in baseball as it takes way too long, sounds overly complicated and looks silly. However this movie makes a dull sport look exciting and suspenseful. Brad Pitt and Philip Seymour Hoffman are great as usual, but the big surprise is comedian Jonah Hill who doesn't get played out of his scenes with these men. Interesting.
