    Avatar

    ★★★★★

    I became a Marine for the hardship. Told myself that I can pass any test a man can pass. All I ever wanted was a single thing worth fighting for.” – Jake Sully


    Experiencing the evolution of Avatar in the public mind or at least in the cineaste community in the last 12 years or so years has been an interesting and puzzling to say the least. When I first saw Avatar on the big screen in 2009 I was…

    We must keep on living.” - Yûsuke Kafuku


    You know, there are moments, when you think of yourself as a pretty decent or at least somewhat witty writer. And then there are moments, like this one, when you realize that you’re nothing but a hack who can't string two coherent sentences together to describe what’s so special about the movie he just watched.

    Sure, I could write paragraph after paragraph about the impeccable craftsmanship on display here. How the directing,…

    I'm no man's burden! I want to be of use!” - Shizuku


    From all the none-Miyazaki Ghibli movie I think it is Whisper of the Heart that I love the most. Sure, Grave of the Fireflies might be a deeper, emotionally more intense film. But it’s not one I can watch any time. Whisper of the Heart on the other hand, is just such an easy watch. A simple, perhaps slightly naïve, but absolutely beautiful and heartwarming slice-of-life/coming-of-age Anime with…

    The Island Closest to Heaven

    ★★★

    A warm summer breeze of a movie with a score from an old Hollywood (romantic) epic. Nothing too deep but to nice look at and a pleasant way to kill a 102 minutes.

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★½

    Rear Admiral: The end is inevitable, Maverick. Your kind is headed for extinction.
    Maverick: Maybe so, sir. But not today.


    After two years of delays Top Gun: Maverick pretty much feels like a film from a bygone era. In the sense that it actually looks and feels like a real movie. The original Top Gun is mostly known for its aviator sequences. But for me personally, they never stuck with me that much. I remember and liked (not loved) it…

  • Prey

    Prey

    ★★

    If it bleeds, we can kill it.” No wait, this movie does not deserve this quote. So let’s go with… “I’m smarter than a beaver...” There you go.


    After watching the shitty trailer of Prey I had no desire of watching the movie itself. It looked like a poorly produced Predator vs. Disney princess movie to me. But then the reviews started coming in. Unbelievable action, hyper violent, great movie, just as good if not better than the original, is…
