    Django Unchained 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Jan, 2013 4

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I love Inglorious Basterds, but I’m not a huge Tarantino fan. In my opinion, he’s too cool for his own good. His movies are entertaining while you watch them, and a lot of aspects are fascinating on a movie geek level. But I honestly can’t say that I’m left with much of an impression when the movie is done. I don’t exactly forget it, but it doesn’t stay with me for a long time either. But I digress, let’s talk…

  • Kon-Tiki

    Kon-Tiki 2012

    ★★½ Rewatched 16 Jan, 2013

Like literally, I actually managed to remember my glasses this time. After watching it on the Norwegian premiere people were like “oh, it was so sad when Bane cried” and I was like “what the hell did you guys smoke? Bane didn’t cry”. Well, it turned out…

    The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Dec, 2012

    (This is a review for the 3D version in 48fps)

    I’ve read The Hobbit several times. It’s an enjoyable book with some really loveable characters, but both them and the story lack depth. Don’t get me wrong, I love the book, but it’s not in the same caliber as LotR. But that isn’t something I will hold against it, or the film.

    The 48fps takes some time to get used to, and even then it looks out of place in…
