  • Snowpiercer

    Snowpiercer 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Jul, 2015

    An american movie from a South Korean director based on a French graphic novel. With American and British actors. What could go wrong ?

    Regarding funding, distribution and worldwide marketing ... everything.
    Regarding the on screen result ? Very little.

    It's not a master piece but gets pretty close. Interesting story with a socio-economical undertone based on an ecological nightmare. Nice visuals, scenery and set dressing. And most actors are doing at least a decent job, although Tilda Swinton annoyed the heck outta me.

    Deserves a place in lists with interesting scifi.

  • Jurassic Park

    Jurassic Park 1993

    ★★★★ Rewatched 09 Jul, 2015

    Revisiting an old classic. It's 22 years old already, but still manages to capture your interest and take you on a journey through an amusement park with dinosaurs. Only Spielberg has those tricks up his sleeve.

    Godzilla 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Jun, 2015

    While the previous Godzilla movie sometimes played for laughs, needed an elongated love story and numerous side characters, this movie did things different.

    They went back to the tone of the original fifties and sixties monster movies where Godzilla ... (telling more would be a spoiler)

    Let's just say that the monster gets his well deserved screen time and humans are important to help the story along but they are not the center piece.

    Highly recommended if you enjoy monster movies and Godzilla in particular.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy

    Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★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.
