    Green Room 2015

    ★★ Watched 05 Jul, 2016

    I watched this mainly because I spotted Patrick Stewart on the cast list - and to be honest even after reading he was going to be the bad guy slaughtering youngsters I was half expecting to side with his character, but naw, I ended up pretty much indifferent towards everyone. (Well, fuck the Nazis, obviously.)
    The scenery was claustrophobic and depressive, the music horrible, the characters one-dimensional (but who cares, a whole lot died quickly anyway).
    It did pick up a bit in the second half which had some interesting ideas, so it's not a total waste of time. Not one of my favs, though.

    While this ridiculous movie was running I pictured its writers sitting on their desks and sofas, American flag hanging on the wall, each of them working on this thing with a MASSIVE never ending patriotic hard on.
    Also, no one told Gerard Butler that it's not supposed to be a parody so he stuck with his over-the-top performance until the end...

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Apr, 2012

    The focus is not on the monsters/special effects, they're simply the backdrop of a wonderful movie about friendship. I thought I knew what to expect, but it was much better. Amazing actors all around, too!

    If you haven't seen it: There are 5 people on the cast list. Yes, 5. Those are all the people who appear on screen during the whole movie. And 3 of them are only in for like 10 minutes, the movie basically rests on the shoulders of Patrick Wilson and Ellen Page, and boy, can these two act! Especially Ellen Page, I mean, she was 18 (looking like 14) when the movie was made and she's simply incredible in it.…
