    The Disaster Artist

    ★★½

    Yay:
    - The opening interviews make you curious about the movie
    - I did not expect Dave Franco to be that good in a dramatic role... I DID NOT!
    - James Franco nails his performance as Tommy Wiseau
    - The Crew

    -> Wiseau didn't need over 60 takes for the…

    ★★★½

    Yay:
    - "The Purge" meets "The Raid" meets "Office Space"
    - Zombieland opening

    - The score is as good as in the first one
    - Most of the acting is pretty…

  • Dunkirk

    Dunkirk

    ★★½

    Yay:
    - That incredible sound design
    - Using unknown actors in the lead roles
    - The first 20 minutes with the threat at the pier
    - Amazing cinematography
    - If it is intended, it works as a refugee metaphor?
    - On a technical level it's pretty much flawless

    Nay:
    - Historically inacurate
    - The whole boat story line
    - Suspense only via sound design; gets pretty boring after the first 30 minutes
    - Impersonal narrative -> I did not care…
