    Jigsaw

    Admittedly, the production quality did certainly improve upon most of the series’ previous instalments.
    Yet, “Jigsaw” adds nothing new to the mix. Further, it marks the franchise at its most pale, tedious, dull and unnecessary yet.

  • Saw 3D

    Saw 3D

    While I fairly enjoyed every “Saw” film so far to certain various extents, to my surprise I have to admit, “Saw 3D” fails in every single aspect imaginable.

    At this point the story isn’t coherent anymore, it’s just drawn out and carries on, although everything is told. Every prior instalment managed to contain at least a few interesting ideas, reveals, twists or scenes. Of course all of them to varying degrees of quality, but at least they all played into…

  • The Worst Person in the World

    The Worst Person in the World

    ★½

    Exactly the type of movie I genuinely despise.

    Anyways, I had a blast watching it in cinema. Me and the other moviegoers constantly laughed our asses off and made jokes about all the oddness and absurdity occurring on screen.

    Definitely the best way to experience that one certain kind of movie you simply can’t stand.

  • Straw Dogs

    Straw Dogs

    ★★★½

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

    I appreciate the movie’s basic concept: A man coined by decency and bonhomie is pushed into a circle of anger and violence by unjust and an aggravated society. A compelling character arc reinforced by Dustin Hoffman‘s mesmerising performance.

    My issue with this movie happens to be the infamous sexual assault scene. We all have this one aspect in movies that always distracts us and makes us enjoy a movie less. For me, it’s those kind of sexual exploitation of women…

  • Dog

    Dog

    ★★★

    Certainly predictable and nothing novel nor inventive, but the chemistry between Channing Tatum and his non human counter part is cute and heartwarming.

  • Raw

    Raw

    ★★½

    At least did Dr. Lecter cook his dinner…

  • The Bubble

    The Bubble

    ½

    I don’t walk out of the theatre, neither do I quit movies at home.
    There is even a running gag existing about me watching horror series to their bitter end.

    I endured “I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer”, Wes Craven’s “The Hills Have Eyes Part II”, “Hostel Part 3” and even the “Wrong Turn” franchise.

    Despite all that and regardless of my principles I turned this horrendous abysmal piece of trash off after half an hour. I just wasn’t able to witness this dreadful and miserable attack on good taste any longer.

  • Miami Vice

    Miami Vice

    ★★★½

    The movie got me deeply intrigued in Miami‘s nightlife, it almost felt strange turning the lights back on.
    Digital cinematography at its peak and as it‘s supposed to be.

  • I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer

    I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer

    ½

    Yeah, surprise surprise, it’s garbage…

  • Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2

    Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2

    You actually have to endure full 40 minutes of “flashback scenes” (they literally show the exact same footage as the the first movie) until the main plot starts. Subsequently, it takes another 20 minutes radiating utterly ridiculous acting and a charming no-/ low-budget style to get you as the audience to the infamous “GARBAGE DAY”, that is some naughty filmmaking.

  • Ein Mann, der keinen Hund filmt
  • Life

    Life

    ★★★

    An ensemble cast of A-list actors and actresses unified in a small claustrophobic spacecraft has to face an extraterrestrial menace.

    Sounds like Ridley Scott‘s masterpiece “Alien” from the 1979 but is actually “Life” from 2017.
    It is crystal clear which movie served as inspiration for Daniel Espinosa since everything from the premise and the setting up to the alien’s progressive evolution feel similar to the audience. Yet, this isn’t necessarily meant to be negative, if just displays the impact Ridley…
