    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

    ★★★★

    The Coens cannot fail me!

  • Moana

    Moana

    ★★★½

    Visually stunning, some Disney-teardrop moments at the end but overall doesn't stick with me.
    That "Shiny" song should have been a gangsta rap. I think they wanted to but management said No in the last minute, so they farted this one out instead.

  • Next Gen

    Next Gen

    ★★½

    So cheesy it hurts, but still ok to watch.

  • Idiocracy

    Idiocracy

    ★★★

    Lit documentary bout whats goin on in Trumpland.

  • A Star Is Born

    A Star Is Born

    ★★★★

    In the sha-ha-sha-la-la-la-low!

  • Solo: A Star Wars Story

    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★½

    It was a fun watch. If you get the idea out of your head that everything in the Star Wars universe must „feel“ like the good old Star Wars films, you are in for a ride. It is a spin-off after all.

    I do fear that the franchise will be milked into eternity by Disney, as seen with the Marvel movies. But at this point I am all in :)

  • The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

    The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

    ★★★★

    Marvelous!

  • Human Flow

    Human Flow

    ★★★★

    Though a bit unfocused in the narrative, it gives a great perspective on the scale of the refugee crisis. Also beautiful camera work.

  • Grave of the Fireflies

    Grave of the Fireflies

    ★★★★½

    😭

  • Ready Player One

    Ready Player One

    ★★★

    You have to turn your plothole-senses off to enjoy this piece but then it is truly a spectacle.

    It also wants to remind you that, in the Oasis you can be ANYTHING you want and so every minority chose to be something else, but the main character decided to be himself: a white male.

  • The Babadook

    The Babadook

    ★★½

    The horror doesn’t work for me, the mom and „the boy“ are annoying to no end and the only normal person in this town seems to be the neighbor old lady. The weirdness is too subtle to feel intended though. Not my style.

  • Hereditary

    Hereditary

    ★★★★½

    Holy Hell, only The Exorcist could make my skin crawl like this before.
