  • Gravity 2013

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 18 Oct, 2014

    This film made me realize one thing: I'd be very sad if something were to happen to the ISS.

  • All Is Lost 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 16 Sep, 2014

    One of my biggest fears is being out at sea alone, at night, in a tiny life raft, during a storm. But at least now I know exactly what to do in such a situation.

  • 2001: A Space Odyssey 1968

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 12 Jan, 2013 1

    *** Part of Lise's "Hal’s Birthday – watch 2001 on Sat Jan 12 2013" project ***

    Started watching around 22:00 CET. Consumed a moderate amount of a technically illegal but generally accepted recreational drug. Been several years since my last viewing, I was looking forward to it.

    Impressions:

    First thought during Dawn of Man sequence: "The history of Man is grand."

    What if the monolith wasn't supposed to do anything, except being there? I mean, the mere existence of something…

  • The Dark Knight Rises 2012

    Watched 16 Jan, 2014 2

    Everything about this film is a lie. The characters are laughable, their motives absolutely incomprehensible. Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character is dumber than a block of wood. The "twist" is a joke. The dialogue is atrocious. Everything that's supposed to be meaningful or empathetic feels manipulative and moronic. It fucking runs for nearly three hours!

    It's a film's equivalent to this.
