  • Divergent 2014

    ★★½ Added

    A Hunger Games knock off without Jennifer Lawrence and a stupid plot. Not horrible but far from great.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★½ Added

    With an infinitely charming cast (Chris Pratt must be the most likable hero since I don't know when, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper might have given their best performances yet as a tree and raccoon respectively), a funny script playing with the super hero genre tropes, cool action and a funny use of music (dance off ftw) this is without doubt the best blockbuster of the year. After years of the dreary, pompous, complex dark Nolan heroes, Guardians with its bright colors, laid back tone and heroic loosers feels like a breath of very welcome fresh air.

    There has been written thoughtful articles and essays about torture, morality and politics in regards to this movie and more will probably be written. I will however do neither, I will rather just address how this film spoke to the TV-geek in me: No one talks to Coach Taylor like that! Be nice to Liz Bennett or Mr Darcy will come spank you. Stupid FOX cancelling The Chicago Code. Michael/Pope does something. Tony Soprano has gotten a new job in government. Pete is actually being serious and Bert Macklin kicks ass.

  • Easy A 2010

    ★★★★★ Added 1

    Ok, so I might be a little bit in love with Emma Stone and I'm a sucker for High School comedies, but Easy A, my personal favorite film from 2010, is within its genre a perfect film. Funny, sassy, smart and touching. Emma Stone's heroine proactive, cool and snarky is reminiscent of 90s feminist icon Buffy, and a wonderful contrast to the anti-feminist crap that is Twilight. Young girls need more female representations like this!
