  • Dracula 1992

    ★★★★ Rewatched 30 Oct, 2014

    Though the film is titled Bram Stoker's Dracula, it contains major alterations to the original novel. While Stoker portraits the vampire as a creatures without emotions, Francis Ford Coppola adds a romantic story line, between Dracula and Mina.
    This might irritate the literature loving viewer but is in fact what creates the true fascination here, as one feels pity for the monster—also thanks to an overwhelming acting performance from Gary Oldman who depicts the dark lord evenly friendly-loving and deeply demonical.
    There is still much left to say—but in the end it is one of the most emotional classic vampire films I watched so far.

  • The Secret Life of Walter Mitty 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 03 Jan, 2014

    Ben Stiller inszeniert sich selbst als Walter Mitty in einer hinreißend verträumten und zugleich in seiner Aussage tiefst realistischen Reise zum Mittelpunkt der eigenen Identät. Dazu ein Soundtrack, der sich den atemberaubenden Bildern nicht unterwirft, sondern den Weg weist, wenn man nicht weiß wohin mit den Gefühlen.

  • Frances Ha 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Aug, 2013

    Baumbach and Gerwig manage to bring a surgery of today's society on screen, a portrait of a world where existence sleeps with banalities. It’s so realistic and emotional in some scenes, that you would cry. Almost, but those tears, they are tears of joy because of Gerwig's manificent play and face acrobatics.

  • Spider-Man 3 2007

    ★★ Rewatched 08 Jul, 2012

    Especially after seeing the reboot with Andrew Garfield, the awful characters and story of this movie become terribly obvious. Fortunately, some still great actors as Kirsten Dunst and J.K. Simmons, who is still hoped to reprise his role in the next Spider-Man sequel, give it some memorable moments.
