    Oh my god, run! There's a cat in the fridge. - This whole movie is some sci-fi apocalypse deja-vu. Every scene has a warm predictable atmosphere. Butler was probably glad to see something a little bit more authentic than Gods Of Egypt or London Has Fallen. This has a bit more cynism and self relativization to it. The acting is actually the great stuff at times. But it still ends up being a confusing dump for intellectual ideas, ending up making, no point at all. What a waste of money and ambition.

    "Who's dead now Johnny? Now, you're the deadman." - A barely descent neo-noir thriller by the Wachowski's. Dialogue and script is a awful at times. First fifty minutes of hell. Basically the hole thing got saved by the amazingly good good-bad guy acting by Joe Pantoliano. Credits for the stunning and inventive camerawork at times. Maybe to much modern kitsch for me.

    Once upon a time there were two xenophobic Moroccan-Belgian directors who wanted an esthetic excuse, to express their racism against the Congolese community.

While the criminal tendencies of the Moroccan gang are romanticised, the Congolese tribe is painted as completely moral degenerates. As I am raised near Brussels, I strongly condemn this picture! Even if a lot of scenes where superficially striking to the eye. Adil El Arbi's political and ideological exploitations in Belgian mass media should be questioned...

    Will she be able to turn back her decisions? - An interesting ride it was. I thought that Paz de la Huerta's career was going to end where it really took off, at Choke (2008) and Noë's Enter The Void (2009). The recent Nurse (2013), was pretty much garbage. Here she is casted in a role once again that's written on her body. The performance by Dianna Agron is at least a pleasant surprise. An easy, well paced story. Hated…
