  • It



    One thing I always liked about Tim Curry's Pennywise was that he looked like a regular clown at first glance, but soon made you realize the evil lurking beneath the surface. He could change between being funny and creepy in an instant, sometimes being both simultaneously. Bill Skarsgård's Pennywise is completely different, but that's a good decision. Instead of trying to copy an iconic performance he gives us a completely new take on Pennywise.

    There's never a doubt that he…

  • The Neon Demon

    The Neon Demon


    One obvious comparison to "The Neon Demon" certainly is Darren Aronofsky's "Black Swan" which also deals with a young woman caught up in the competition of the showbiz world and which also dwells in the middle ground between art and trash film.

The vast snow-filled landscape looks stunning and the isolated setting helps to create a dreadful atmosphere early on that is gradually increased up to an unbearable tension as the crew realizes the creature's nature. This is supported by a score that cleverly combines elements of Carpenter's and Morricone's work. I had some reservations whether the effects…

  • Skyfall



    I can't believe I almost missed this gem at the cinema! Having seen all three Daniel Craig Bond films in a row and for the first time this week, "Skyfall" is my favorite - albeit only by a slim margin over "Casino Royale" - of this unofficial trilogy which sets up and establishes the background of James Bond as well as the rest of the franchise's characters.

    "Skyfall" perfects the new approach of the Craig Bond films, grounded in reality,…
