    Batman Ninja

    ★★

    Was looking forward to this and left pretty disappointed.

    The concept idea is neat, the execution a narrative mess. It's a string of stupid mistakes made by Batman in a plot that's leaking from inconsistencies and ludicrous ideas.

    Sure, it makes no sense to ultimately question where Penguin found all those penguins in feudal Japan or how all those Arkham villains individually – despite Grodd's mind control – managed to build those giant robotic castles.

  • Fanny & Alexander

    Fanny & Alexander

    ★★★½

    'Life used to be better' is one of those idioms that the characters from Fanny och Alexander would use probably. "The happy, splendid life is other", moans Helen at the beginning, essentially foreshadowing the future that awaits Alexander and his family after his father's passing.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★½

    Like the great Ian Malcolm said: “That is one big pile of shit.”

    It is in a weird way impressive how these Star Wars movie just get worse and worse. What surprises me even more is their unpunished dupery. Like Charles Baudelaire once mused that “the finest trick of the devil is to persuade you that he does not exist” Disney manages the amazing feat to make people think The Last Jedi offers them something new when instead the studio…
