  • Hotel Transylvania 2012

    ★★★½ Watched 03 Aug, 2014

    Dracula opens a hotel for monsters and ghouls where mankind can't find them. Creating a safe haven for relaxing vacations. When his daughter turns 118 he tries hard to keep her away from humans. Trying to protect her.

    Of course right there and then a boy, a human, walks into the castle hotel.

    Has some funny moments, great voice casting and great pace. It never gets dull. Beter than expected.

  • Frozen 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 03 Aug, 2014

    Long overdue watching this and I'll definitely watch it again some day.

    Classic Disney again. Princesses, princes, paupers, animals, talking objects ... good versus bad. And some singing ...

    Only downside is the rather slow beginning. Things really start picking up pace once Olaf enters the movie. Best character by the way.

  • Sucker Punch 2011

    Watched 25 Oct, 2012

    Meh.

    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.
