    Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

    ★★★★

    Wow!
    Haven't seen the first one, but it doesn't matter. This was really enjoyable.
    The main thing I don't usually like about musicals is the unknown songs. But this was different, ABBA songs were executed really good.
    I guess this will be a new guilty pleasure for me, even teared up at one point. Definitely exceeded my expectations.
    And that Cher helicopter scene was golden.

  • A Quiet Place

    A Quiet Place

    ★★★

    Just like Arrival, first half of the movie was superb, full off unknown, mystery. Then it all went downhill.

    ★★★★½

    Skatījos kā mazs bērns ar lielām acīm, jo viss mani aizrāva. Visvairāk jau pati noskaņa, ko radīja precīza mūzikas izvēle, vizuālie efekti un reālistiski supervaroņi.
    Tā kā filmu biju redzējis tikai iznākšans gadā un skatījos Ultimate Cut, daudz ko jaunu redzēju (20 minūšu garu «The Tales of the Black Freighter» multeni), vairāk uz detaļām varēju koncentrēties un pamanīt šķietami acīmredzamo, ko pirmajā skatīšanās reizē nespēju piefiksēt.
    Nobeigšu ar vienu Rotten Tomatoes citātu: «The film is a ballsy, brainy, and thoroughly bloody examination of human nature, pop culture and 'the good old days' that never were.»

  • The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat

    The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat

    ★★★

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

    Teiktu tā - filma sadalās divās daļās. Pirmā bija interesantāka, jo tur brauca masīvs virziens un nevarēja zināt, kas notiks... Bet otrajā daļā cilvēki izkāpa no vilciena un staigājās.. Atklāti sakot, neskatoties uz to, ka filma tikai piecdesmit sekunžu gara, man jau drusku palika garlaicīgi. Bet klasika ir jānovērtē!
