    Raiders of the Lost Ark

    ★★★★★

    Still one of the best adventure films out there. Classic Indy never gets old. And I'll never get tired of it. It's peak Spielberg and peak cinena at its most thrilling, most fun and most entertaining best. Ford is iconic. Always a pleasure to revisit a favorite and re-experience that exact same feeling that I had upon first watch. Indiana Jones made for one of those sparks that contributed to the film obsession that I now still carry with me.…

    No matter how often I'm watching it, it remains a spectacularly gross and exciting thrillride from start to finish, and (aside from Poltergeist, which we now know is directed by Spielberg) it's the closest Spielberg ever got to making a horror movie. We got voodoo, deathly rituals, enslaved children, terrifying cult leaders and a malicious trance and once we got through this bonkers and impressive chain of occult madness, we got treated with what remains one of the most spectacular…

    ★★★

    I thoroughly enjoyed this for the energetic action and for the fun performances from Joey King and Olga Kurylenko with that nasty whip, but it remains nothing more than simple entertainment due to a messy plot, a lack of worthy characterization and an undercooked villain. I sure had fun with this, but it lacks on too many levels to make it stand out in any way.

    ★★★★

    Clever and with a keen eye for character driven entertainment, Bob le flambeur is charming, flamboyant and funny from start to finish. There is a wildly enjoyable slickness to the style, and the characters are strongly developed through dialogue and it's all unpredictable and very romantic also. Nobody will see the ending coming and it's really quite brilliant. This was my first Melville and I already feel like wanting more.

    ★★★★★

    Not since a certain trilogy about a certain ring we've witnessed a vision as grand as Denis Villeneuve's Dune. Another story that was said to be unfilmable due to its massive scope and enormous worldbuilding. Now, the most ambitious director working in Hollywood today, pushed bounderies, reached to the sky and beyond to create a grand, in surreality drenched adventure that is, in the first place, overwhelming. Every single image, every single setpiece, every single costume and every single tune…

    Looks cool.
    Cast cool.
    Vampires cool.
    But doesn't mean film is cool.
