  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 14 May, 2015

    What a lovely day! George Miller hits a home run, with a revisiting of the classic Mad Max world, but this time with a vengeance. Amazing shots, adrenaline-pumped action, a compact but intricate story, a bunch of convincing actors, and some really pounding music. What a wild ride, nothing can prepare you for this!

  • The Raid 2

    The Raid 2 2014

    ★★★ Watched 13 May, 2015

    A lot better than the first part. This time with a real story, some good acting, and more attention to detail. But once again, all the beating, punching, slicing and dicing gets really tiring, and it's brutal as hell. One wishes they would have scaled that down and invested a few more bucks in logic, and sound editing (which is a most atrocious degree of foley sound design ever)

  • Until the End of the World

    Until the End of the World 1991

    ★★★½ Watched 07 Feb, 2015

    Had the pleasure of seeing the 5 hour director's cut tonight at the Berlin International Film Festival, with a conversation with Wim Wenders at the end. The movie's about 1h too long, but it is quite a cinematic achievement. I don't like Wenders' non-use of widescreen, and some parts seem corky by today's standards, but overall, it is a magnificent and encapsulating motion picture, with pioneering work in digital technology. This version is now restored and remastered, and who knows, might find its way onto BluRay soon...
