    Parts of the film were quite tedious but the last third was brilliant and fascinating.

    Ocean's Eight

    ★★★

    For me the film absolutely fulfilled its purpose of escaping the heat in Madrid and being entertained. Nothing special, but diverting and enjoyable. Further, the acting was excellent and   the songs of the soundtrack well chosen.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    ★★★½

    Conflicted thoughts, on the one hand there were some absolutely impressive scenes, on the other length/pace and plot felt problematic, nevertheless it was as expected - entertaining.

  • The Third Murder

    The Third Murder

    ★★★★

    The biggest problem of the movie is its length, it should have been shorter. Even though some scenes were absolutely wonderul, some were dragged out. Otherwise, a brilliant film and I appreciated and enjoyed a lot how it engaged with its audience. Defintiely a film that "plays" with the audience and makes them think, about perceptions of truth/lies/concepts and/or intention of actions. A huge plus. All of this, embedded in the investigation of a murder and its court case, mostly out of the perspective of the lawyer (defense). Apart from the length, brilliant.
