    Entourage 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 05 Aug, 2016

    After having liked the series and the cliffhanger ending, I wasn't sure it needed this extra movie. The first minutes had me wondering a bit of it wasn't just a case of throwing all those loose ends away and adding a longer episode. By the end of the movie things were a bit better than expected (especially Drama's storyline) but not that memorable either.

    Was this movie necessary ? Not really. Is it a waste of time ? Absolutely not. Would I have liked an extra series with more fleshed out storylines instead of this film ? Yes.

    Certainly has its moments and doesn't skimp on the action but in the end it's a pretty big mess where its predecessors at least tried to make the timelines work. Still better than number 4.

    ★★★★½ Watched 07 Sep, 2014

    Funny as hell. Total standalone movie, set in space, with no connections to the previous Marvel movies. Starring a walking tree, a mentally unstable raccoon, some kind of bodybuilder, a green woman and a white male. A difficult task but it works. Can't wait for the crossovers and the sequel.

    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.
