    Alien³

    ★★★½

    Again, after the previous movie, Ripley survives the alien horror and goes into cryosleep to be shot into the great wide vastness of space. However, it seems a xenomorph smuggled itself onboard causing the lifepod to crash on a prison planet. And so it rebegins.

    There's a lot being said about this third entry of the Alien franchise. Production and storywise problems, different writers, all ending up to the debut of one of the most stylish directors still at work,…

    1917

    ★★★★½

    Two soldiers on a quest to save thousands of lives with time and some Germans as their main enemy. From the first foot they set towards their task we follow them, seemingly in one take but obviously with the cuts meticulously hidden throughout, through the trenches, in the tunnels, towards the battlefield and a totally destructed village ending where the message needs to be delivered.

    We're onto them literally, like flies buzzing around them, or sneaking behind them as they…

    ★★★½

    I've been meaning to rewatch this for quite some time, and finally the day has arrived. While I wasn't completely blown away by the movie back in the day, I still appreciated some of the beauty of it.
    Five years later it's safe to say my opinion towards this hasn't really changed. The cinematography is awesome (you can see Villeneuve was practicing with huge flying objects as later in Dune), and I loved more than the first time the beautiful…

    The Lost Daughter

    ★★★½

    While on vacation Leda, a phenomenal Colman (as always) is confronted with her family life in the past.
    Initially it's the 'Colman has awkward meetings show' and you feel there's something with her character, and gradually through flashbacks when we return to her younger self (Buckley is as amazing) and her attempt to combine her professional life with her kids and husband ("It's Sunday, it's your turn to look after the kids").
    The story creates familiar uneasy moments with your…

    The Skin I Live In

    ★★★★

    Talk about movies you will not forget having seen them a decade ago, well, this is a perfect example.
    A truly mesmerizing experience, which gets more and more uncomfortable as it progresses.
    Forget the slashers with axes, true horror, that's surgeons with scalpels.

    Inside Llewyn Davis

    ★★★★

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

    It's very rare that you hear a song for the first time that immediately drags you in, music- and lyricswise. But here, this is the case with the opening song. A guy playing the guitar. Heavenly voice. Smoke is blown, drinks are drunk. Eyes and ears glued to the screen.
    And so it continues.

    It's obviously a Coen's world, inhabited by stylishly sharp-dressed and sharp-humored men, scattered with awesome dialogue.

    You know, it's about a musician. Those guys who, when…
