    A classic, beware the dubbed version though.

  • Going Cardboard: A Board Game Documentary

    Going Cardboard: A Board Game Documentary

    A shallow documentary about the board gaming industry, lacking an engaging narrative and relying on too many interviewees who have little to contribute. Perhaps it's just a small industry but it's close cousin, the computer game, set such a high bar with King of Kong I had expected more.

    Time Bandits

    ★★★★

    Totally inspired film, fantastic set pieces and some great comic moments. The plot moves along at a decent pace even if there's not much to it, classic fairy tale right up to the end. One of my favourite Gilliam movies for sure.

  • Dune

    Dune

    Terrible film. Let down by poor casting, terrible special effects and awful soundtrack. Especially avoid if you have read and enjoyed the book.

  • Days of Heaven

    Beautiful.

    To Rome with Love

    ★★★½

    Saw this in Berlin with German subtitles so I missed most of the Italian segments.

    ★★★½

    Much better than I thought it would be. Still not amazing…
