• Predators

    Predators

    ★★★½

    A bit too long, and the miscasting of Adrien Brody sadly distracted me, but all in all way more enjoyable than I had expected.

  • Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

    Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

    ★★★½

    Honestly better than I remember. And that especially goes for Alan Rickman, whose acting I thought was just over the top but now know was over the top and really great.

  • The Snowman

    The Snowman

    ★½

    Nice too look at, but in the end that's about it.

    It's weird (and not in a good way). So much talent behind and in front of the camera, and this is what they deliver? On the surface it's a well made movie, which is why my rating is pretty high, but under it's kind of a mess.

    The story is standard Scandinavian detective novel fare. Too standard, but could've worked. Someone like Tomas Alfredson could have made it work.…

  • Thor: Love and Thunder

    Thor: Love and Thunder

    ★★★★½

    I love Taika Waititi. I love Thor: Love & Thunder and I love Taika Waititi because he made it.

    Okay, something like this: It has been easy to compare Everything Everywhere All at Once with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, due to the jumping between multiverses and whatnot.

    But I think it's much fairer to compare Everything with Love & Thunder, because of emotions and a crazy concoction of ideas. Sure, it's not as massive and crazy a concoction as…

  • Withnail & I

    Withnail & I

    ★★★★★

    One of my absolute favorite movies. Though I've seen it a few times and still couldn't quite tell you exactly why. One of few movies in my life I haven't been bothered analyzing, I just enjoy and experience it.

    But I do love those characters, and their relationship. The humor and the way it works in cooperation with the drama and the dark stuff is probably a big part of my adoration. The ending, of course.

    It might be time for a rewatch and a proper review.

  • The Sadness

    The Sadness

    ★★★★

    Damn. This... this is one hell of a movie. I was a little unsure in the beginning, felt it went on a bit too slow at times until it didn't. And I came to realize how well those early slow moments actually set the mood. Together with the music and sound design. Especially the sound design.

    And then the gore. Massive, disgusting, effective. Way too realistic or at least more than realistic enough. Very effective.

    And there is much discomfort.…

  • Pig

    Pig

    ★★★★½

    Not what I expected, but even better.

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★★

    It's far from from perfect, but it doesn't really feel like any other MCU-movie. At times it feels very, very Sam Raimiesque, and that's a very, very good thing. In the end I enjoyed it a whole lot. I also have a sneaking suspicion I will only like it more, as time goes by.

  • The Adam Project

    The Adam Project

    ★★★½

    Fun flick, good action, and a lot of heart. Well, maybe a little too much heart at times, but still. I really enjoyed it.

  • X

    X

    ★★★★

    Really liked it, and will probably like it even more on a second viewing. Because it wasn't what I expected – which kinda made me miss things I thought would be there. If you know what I mean?

    But that's my problem. And since I loved a lot of things in and with the movie, I do think I will really love it all now that I know what to expect.

  • The Batman

    The Batman

    ★★★

    I don't really know how to feel about it. There's much to like. The atmosphere is great, and it doesn't feel like any other Batman movie. I loved the music – it's actually my favorite part of the movie. Robert Pattinson is a great Batman and an okay Bruce Wayne (not bad, just too emo for my taste). There's a lot of good acting going around. And I enjoyed that little taste of romance between the bat and the cat.…

  • The Ledge

    The Ledge

    ½

    Before watching The Ledge, I read about it. Just a little bit. Wikipedia. A couple of blurbs on Rotten Tomatoes. Got an idea of what to expect.

    My expectations was not wrong. RT was not wrong. I had some hope that The Ledge would bring the most basic of entertainment value, but five minutes into the film it was already obvious where the quality level would be. And it never rose above that low, low bar.

    There were some kind…
