    Sleepers 1996

    ★★★ Watched 08 Feb, 2015

    It just sort of passes by and it feels like nothing is made of any events happening in the film. It really feels like nobody cares about being in the film, maybe with the exception of De Niro.

  • The Phantom of the Opera

    The Phantom of the Opera 2004

    ★★ Watched 07 Feb, 2015

    Too long and the performances are mostly boring and not that good. Emmy Rossum is good though. She is the only one who sells the songs a little bit. Gerard Butler is horribly miscast, I don't really get why he is in here. There was also obviously a lack of communication in regards to accents. That shit is all over the place.

  • Planes, Trains and Automobiles

    Planes, Trains and Automobiles 1987

    ★★★ Watched 06 Feb, 2015 9

    Not entirely on board with this one but it grows on you in a way. The ending is great for sure.

  • John Wick

    John Wick 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 06 Feb, 2015 2

    A solid action flick. It's not quite as amazing as people were saying but I definitely dig how simple things are. They don't cut cut cut all the time, so the action looks good and Keanu really sells it.

    There are a couple of musical choices though... that just don't work.

  • Men & Chicken

    Men & Chicken 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 05 Feb, 2015 2

    Anders Thomas Jensen returns to directing after ten years absence. And what a return. It's darker than anything he has done before, I would say, but it's just as funny and Danish. I can't see this working well in many other countries.

    The whole cast is on fire, Mads Mikkelsen, of course. Spitting quotable lines right, left and center.

    The film looks great, the music is pretty great and unusual and it's just a riot. This is what Danish cinema is all about.

    Best of 2015 got off to a fantastic start.

  • Youth in Revolt

    Youth in Revolt 2009

    ★★★ Watched 04 Feb, 2015

    Cera is fine in this and it has got a few good laughs.

  • All for One

    All for One 2011

    ½ Watched 03 Feb, 2015 2

    Absolutely one of the worst films I have ever seen. Not a single funny scene in here, in this "comedy". It's horrible, terrible, and popular in Denmark. I'm very happy to only call my self half Danish, because this is atrocious and sad.

  • Birdman

    Birdman 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 02 Feb, 2015

    Still a lot that needs to settle with this one.

  • Pulp Fiction

    Pulp Fiction 1994

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 01 Feb, 2015

    Looks amazing on blu and it will probably never get old.

  • Winter's Tale

    Winter's Tale 2014

    ★★ Watched 31 Jan, 2015

    I didn't really hate this but it really isn't very well made. It's got a couple of moments that worked, sort of. But it's too long and Crowe is going for something... I don't know what he was thinking, actually.

  • Undertow

    Undertow 2004

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Jan, 2015 5

    I didn't really like anything to do with the little brother so that takes it down a notch, but there is plenty of atmosphere and DGG makes everything look great.

  • Driving Miss Daisy

    Driving Miss Daisy 1989

    ★★ Watched 29 Jan, 2015 2

    The rating is probably a little harsh. It's not that the film is bad, it's just so incredibly boring and empty and nothing-y.

    I don't care.
