    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,…

    ★★★★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…

    Part 4 of the rewatch 2021 challenge

    For the second time we follow the adventures of 2 soldiers on their way through no man's land to another division with a message to call of the attack.

    The cinematic equivalent of my experience with candy: it's great in the beginning (a lovely Japanese setting and some wonderful shots and action), but gradually after having more of it the initial taste starts to wear off so that towards the end you wonder why you started it anyway.

    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.

    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…
