    ★★★

    Bale acts even more like a crackhead when he is clean, and Wahlberg hardly acts at all. The Fighter lacks most of the vigor and whimsical nature that made Russels previous films watchable. The Fighter is not bad, but not all that good either. Probably fitting for the pretty uninteresting material it is based on.

    ★★★★½

    The best film Scorsese has made in many years is surprisingly a warm and emotional family feature. It starts a little slow, but soon finds its pace and creates a fantastical and beautiful mood without compromsing the main story. Hugo is the kind of film that makes its viewers love the medium.

    Deliverance

    ★★★★

    The first 30 minutes of Deliverance is probably one of the greatest beginnings in film history, but sadly it gradually looses interest until it falls through in the dramatic climax on the cliff. Flawed classic that feels a little contrived, but actually holds up pretty well to time.

  • The Goonies

    The Goonies

    ★★★★½

    Totally fantastic! I had actually never seen this before and was blown away by how fun and also pretty scary for the age group it is. The only thing that felt a little dated are how the shouting tries to drive the action when it should be the other way around. Other than that it is a fun romp for the whole family, despite or maybe because of its more incorrect elements. All the kids deliver fantastic performances and the bad guys are unreal but pretty menacing nonetheless. 80's entertainment at its best!
