    It Chapter Two

    ★★★½

    As I mentioned in my Chapter One review, Stephen King's book had a huge impact on me when I was young, hence the adaptation facing an unfair uphill battle from the start. Chapter Two has the advantage of dealing mainly with the adult versions of the Losers, to whom I have still a strong, but slightly less intense connection.

    It: Chapter Two is pretty much what I expected. I'm not in the mood for a proper write-up, but still want…

    It

    ★★★

    Nowadays I'm not much of a reader, but younger me read quite a lot. Back in the summer of '94 my family had just moved to another town right after the beginning of summer break. I was a 16 year old fat kid with no friends, who was terrified of going to a new school and getting thrown into a new environment. With my mom and stepfather fighting every single fucking day (mostly over money respectively its absence), life at…

    It Chapter Two

    ★★★

    Like the first film, Chapter Two lost a bit upon rewatch as its flaws became more apparent. For my initial thoughts click here.

    • This movie is a big "fuck you" to restraint and subtlety. It's incredibly loud and I felt like it was constantly screaming at me "See how scary I am!?!?!?". Except, it isn't.

    • The amount of comic relief is ridiculous. Almost every moment of tension is deflated by something Richie or Eddie say.

    • Fucking speaking…

  • Hollow Man

    Hollow Man

    ★★★½

    Hollow Man may be lower tier Verhoeven, and he may have done it only for the money, but it is still unmistakably Verhoeven. As usual he is as subtle as a brick to the face in his exploration of the film's quandary. What would people actually do if they were certain they could get away with anything? To read the premise as that of a character losing his sanity in the wake of an experiment gone wrong, misses the point.…

    Logan

    ★★★★½

    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

    ★★★★★

    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…
