    ★½ Watched 24 May, 2014 12

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

  • 90 Minutes 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 23 May, 2014

    Det er veldig vanskelig for meg å skrive om filmen på norsk fordi jeg har nettopp sett 90 minutter av noe veldig tungt. Jeg vet at jeg ikke har nok ord på norsk for å forklare hva jeg mener om filmen, men kanskje jeg ikke har noen ord på mitt morsmål heller.

    Jeg kommer til å gråte mer nå enn da jeg så filmen.

    Regissøren Eva Sørhaug har gjort meg målløs. Jeg ser ofte på "true crime" tv-programmer men å…

  • Escape 2012

    ★★★ Watched 22 May, 2014

    Jeg har alltid vært fascinert av den perioden filmen er satt i. Det er ikke så ofte du ser en film som tar plass ti år etter svartedauden, og det var veldig interessant å se noe som kunne ha skjedd i den tida.

    Flukt ble filmet pent, det var ikke bare fordi Norge har et veldig fint landskap heller. Kameraføringen var fantastisk bortsett fra noen scener av overdramatisk redigering.

    Fortellingen var veldig enkel, en stor forskjell fra noen norske filmer…

  • The Moth Diaries 2011

    ★★ Watched 23 May, 2014 2

    The Moth Diaries left me both confused and very annoyed. I know that it is easy to get angry when you don't understand something and have tons of unanswered questions, and I'm going to try my best to not fall victim to my own nastiness and negativity.

    What was the deal with the moths? Did I miss something? If you can, PLEASE explain (or at least give me your theories). I wish this was explored more, we see a couple…

  • Pax 2010

    ½ Watched 22 May, 2014 3

    FY FAEN

    Kanskje jeg må gi Pax flere stjerner fordi vi hadde det gøy med å gjøre narr av den...

  • The Dentist 1996

    ★★★½ Watched 22 May, 2014 9

    It's so funny because I thought I was re-watching The Dentist for the first time since the 1990s, in preparation for the sequel which I thought I had never seen. Turns out, I've seen the sequel but never watched The Dentist!!! Obviously, I still need to watch the sequel as well because I do not remember it very well (but I remember liking it!).

    I was super surprised to see Mark Ruffalo in this!! He looked so young!! Corbin Bernsen…

  • Stepfather 3 1992

    ★★ Watched 21 May, 2014 7

    Robert Wightman steps in to the role of the stepfather and he can not hold a candle to Terry O'Quinn. While the character is the same psychopathic family man, the explanation for the change in appearance is a convoluted story about back-alley plastic surgery. When, in reality, the only person who looks to be sporting facial reconstruction is the new leading lady in his life, Priscilla Barnes.

    I find it almost hard to believe that Stepfather 3 is a made-for-tv…

  • Dunderland 2012

    ★★ Watched 20 May, 2014 2

    Dunderland er nesten den dummeste norske filmen jeg har sett og bare The Thrill of the Kill var verre.

    Jeg ble litt overrasket da jeg flyttet til Norge fordi vi bor i Arendal, helt sør, og jeg trodde at hele landet var det samme som nord Norge. Det beste med filmen var landskapet. Fra nordlyset til masse snø, jeg var helt fasinert av stedet og skulle ønske at jeg bodde der, ikke her.

    Jeg kan ikke si det samme om…

  • Next Door 2005

    ★★★★ Watched 19 May, 2014 9

    Jeg har hatt Naboer (Next Door) i min 'watchlist' i nesten to år nå. Siden jeg skal se en norsk film hver dag (jeg gjorde det ikke i går, dessverre), var det tid å se en av min manns favoritter.

    Etter at jeg så Uskyld, spurte jeg om Kristoffer Joner fordi han var kjempegod i den filmen. Richard sa at han er en av de mest kjente skuespillerene i Norge. Nå vet jeg hvorfor han er så berømt. Men, jeg…

  • Laserblast 1978

    Rewatched 18 May, 2014 8

    *Watched with Mike, the bots and my husband.

  • Stepfather 2: Make Room for Daddy 1989

    ★★½ Watched 19 May, 2014 1

    I'm quite surprised that I never watched this sequel as a kid, especially considering my love of horror films and Jonathan Brandis. Not to mention the inclusion of Meg Foster and Caroline Williams rounding out the cast of genre-regulars.

    Terry O'Quinn is easily the best thing about these movies as he not only looks like a stepfather but crazed lunatic suits him nicely. That's why I'm a bit bummed out to read that he won't be continuing in the final…

  • The Stepfather 1987

    ★★★ Rewatched 19 May, 2014

    Upon revisiting The Stepfather (in preparation for watching the sequels for the first time), I can't help but feel as though this movie is a bit over-rated.

    Sure I love Jill Schoelen (even though I find it incredibly unbelievable to think she would have ever been expelled from a school for fighting and being a troublemaker...) and I think that Terry O'Quinn is fantastic as the on-edge, step father Jerry Blake, I just think there could have been more cruelty,…
