    The Lobster 2015

    Bewildering. Surely it's an allegory of some sort, but I couldn't quite figure out of what.

  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens 2015

    ★★★ Watched 26 Dec, 2015

    Very faithful to the originals. Maybe too faithful?
    They did not take any risks with the script, I hope they'll manage to make it for number nine. In the meantime, number eight won't be watched on anything more than a computer screen.

  • Dorian Gray

    Dorian Gray 2009


    This movie is already an insult just for the simple idea of trying to make an adaptation without considering the meaning of the original novel, not considering the overall poverty of the plot.
    I would say it is a very peculiar example of American catastrophic attempt to make amazing classics appealing to simple-minded audiences.
    The only reason it does not attain my esteem to the original work by Oscar Wilde is that there is no trace of link to it.
    And besides, it's awful even if considered simply as an action movie.
