    Movie in one sentence: I think I'm starting to hate myself for watching this

    In the good days that I did the writings of this kind of reviews for someone else, the Traves movies were painful to watch. Now it's even more painful because I'm willingly choose to watch it. This is just bad and there's no end to it. Netflix has promised that this is the last one indeed, but I think it isn't. As long as this movies…

    Movie in one sentence: There’s so much happening!

    The problems of the Von Erich family are much to comprehend in the first half hour or so. It’s difficult for me to follow what’s actually happening. When the story starts to focus on the Efron part it becomes more personal and that are my personal highlights. The casting is spot on here, so is the art direction and even the cinematography has some very nice moments. Some emotion is very β€˜Hollywood’y’ but I can see why that. Not as suprising as I hoped but very decent overall.

And we're gonna take that for granted for a few months, maybe even a few years before we see…

    Movie in one sentence: Thats just one wild car ride!

    This movie is on my radar for almost a year now and my expectations for it were high. To start off: did absolute not disappoint, but something in me expected it to be better. Maybe the expectations were just too high or something didn’t clicked the way it should’ve. But that doesn’t change the fact that I liked it very much. The screenplay is wild and did give the actors…
