    I Care a Lot


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    For fuck's sake, I hate it when a film ruins what would've been a perfect ending, because it doesn't have the guts to follow through with what it clearly was going for.

    When Pike and Dinklage joined forces for a nationwide scam and pulled it off, I was ready to give I Care a Lot an even higher score. Pitch black cynicism at its finest. But then the movie chickens out in the last seconds and has Pike's Marla Grayson…

    "I had to question the mermaids." (Holland March)

    Even as a big fan of Ryan Gosling's minimalist performances, I have to say the portrayal of Holland March is his greatest artistic achievement so far. It's a comedy performances for the ages, one that should've resulted in Gosling being showered with awards. Naturally it was overlooked because a) it's a comedy and b) that same year he also starred in fucking La La Land, which is a good but evidently lesser…

    "Never send a monkey to do a man's job."

    Well, if the man in question happens to be Mark Wahlberg, that issue suddenly becomes less clear-cut than it appears at first glance.

    He's usually fine in straight action roles, but anything requiring a smidgen of emotional depth and intelligence is a total crap shoot. Tim Burton's remake of Planet of the Apes unfortunately is one of the cases where they could've gone with a slab of beef instead and it…

    "Are women mentally unfit to hold the presidency? Here to chat about it is Chris Brown, Jeremy Piven, and Brett Ratner."

    I'm a simple guy, I like cheap shots.

  • Logan



    Initially my expectations for this movie weren't that high. I'm not much of a fan of the X-Men franchise and I do find the first two Wolverine solo outings particularly bad. What got me on board were the trailers. They left me with the impression that this actually could be an interesting film. Also I like Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart, and director James Mangold has made two films, that I really like a lot. Identity, and Cop Land where…

  • Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri


    Since I joined Letterboxd about three years ago, Martin McDonagh's latest became only the second new film that I awarded five stars after the first viewing. Since I rate rather generous, that alone speaks for itself.

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri simply blew me out of my seat. I don't remember the last time a film elicited such an emotional reaction in me. It feels so deeply humane and real. All three central characters are brilliantly written and even better…
