  • Werner We Love You

    Werner We Love You

    ★★

    I've started watching this assuming it was a film about Werner Herzog the director. It wasn't. It's about a different Werner Herzog, this weird character who was a bouncer in german clubs in the 60s. Although it is evidently a work of love, as the title states, it doesn't wake much interest in the occasional spectator. I have to say I've watched it to the end anyway, so... not bad.

    Games

    ★★½

    It does look great, with all its darkish purple/red palette it looks almost like a Amicus or Hammer flick, it has a rather enjoyable sense of the macabre and displays a fair amount of grandguignolesque make up effects. Unfortunately, the plot is not as entertaining or original.

  • The Raid 2

    The Raid 2

    ★★½

    Most people will like this better than the first one, because it has so much more graphic violence and a wider span, but personally I think these are the very reasons why I consider the first movie a better effort by far. It's limitations of space and time made The Raid such an original output, while this second chapter is more predictable and average among other action movies.

    Il brigadiere Pasquale Zagaria ama la mamma e la polizia

    ★★

    Totally useless film, but it serves as a platform for Banfi's (silly but undoubtedly funny) inventions and improvisation. Plus, it features a final car/motorcycles chase that's fairly well filmed and edited, I've seen proper action movies worse than that.
