• Scream


    Good to get a refresh on this classic. I certainly did not remember whodunnit. Maybe a slice too much tomfoolery, but otherwise a solid slasher.

  • Hellbound: Hellraiser II

    Hellbound: Hellraiser II

    Hellraiser? Hell, yes!

    Sure, the effects might partly be a bit dated; but that does not at all impact this succession in any negative way. Even more than the first part, this is a truly evil film. Certainly not a horror movie for beginners. I don‘t know why I haven‘t seen them before. I missed out!

  • Grizzly


    Saw this the same night as „Dinosaurus!“ at the cinema. Much much better production, though. This got introduced as a „Jaws“ in the woods. And this is pretty spot on – minus the class of „Jaws“ maybe. While this has quite a few weaknesses in dialogue and plot, this was overall a solid movie – if you‘re into trashy old school horror movies that is.

  • Dinosaurus!


    It was a fun experience seeing this together with friends at the cinema. And it had scenes that reminded me of Jurassic Park and Pulp Fiction. Here and there, it certainly had its moments. But man was this old school. Trashy and gimmicky. And not something I am used to seeing anymore. I somehow like that I had this experience; but at the same time, I do not need to have it again any time soon.

    I find it refreshing to watch a non-Western movie occasionally. Same with this one. Bong Joon-ho‘s humour is somewhat unique. He manages to put those funny (silly even) elements in a movie while not devaluing the serious topic he‘s dealing with. Although in this one I find the whole stupid-cops-don‘t-make-any-progress-in-the-case-play go on for too long.

    I found the camera work to be great. Characters were interesting (somehow the main suspect reminded me of Paul Dano‘s role in „Prisoners“). And the ending was top, too.

  • What Drives Us

    What Drives Us

    Totally fine documentary with a promising bunch of interviewees. But somehow it manages to be bit thin in truly interesting nuggets.

  • Hellraiser


    Finally, I have seen this movie! And what a treat! Everything’s great about it: plot, costumes, sound, acting, sets. And the special effects! And it’s scary as hell – as it should be for a horror film. Looking forward to part 2!

    Wow, we made it through this whole series. And it didn’t end on a high note. This was trash. And I could enjoy some of it. For example, I liked that Jason was this brutal force that just kills. Or the cliché nudity. Or the sometimes quirky charming dialogue. And the scene where he beats the one girl in the sleeping bag with another is just hilarious. But oh man, this was long, the set design was terrible (reminded me…

  • White Noise

    White Noise

    Lovingly made: great lighting, fantastic choreography, great acting and much more. But overall unfortunately the plot seemed senseless and inconsequential to me, which made me care less and less as the film progressed. Had good things, but I’d rather watch a Wes Andersson movie.

  • Bones and All

    Bones and All

    Some aspects were totally fine in this, but ultimately this wasn‘t my kind of movie.

  • What We Do in the Shadows

    What We Do in the Shadows

    A bloody healthy and funny dose of New Zealand for me.

  • The Power of the Dog

    I would watch this again; to see if I notice some more subtle clues earlier and pay more attention to the individual chapters on their own. The storyline is so well done: it progressively changes the impression you have or had of both Phil and Peter. And in the end I didn‘t know how to feel about any of them really – pity or aversion or simply empathy.

    A great film about men and their hardships/obstacles/difficulties they faced and how those manifested themselves in their behaviour and characters in very different ways.
