  • Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle

    Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle

    ★★½

    It's a darker take on the story of "The Jungle Book" that we're used to. Andy Serkis got us perfectly adequate entertainment and an interesting diversion into the darker aspects of the Jungle Book stories, but suffers from tonal shifts, lack of soul, weak CGI and an inevitable comparison to the (far superior) 2016 Disney version.

    And i might add that having that cute albino wolf killed, stuffed, and mounted, was very a poor choice of events.

  • Stalker

    Stalker

    ★★

    Fascinating, yet very frustrating at the same time. Frustrating for those (like me) who expect science-fiction to tie up all loose ends, highly rewarding journey (i guess) for those more poetic-minded...

    Watching this movie was like being handcuffed to a tunnel wall while listening to the echo of trickles of water falling on the floor. Interesting, key questions of the nature of man are constantly dissected, but with no easy answers given... The horribly dangerous Zone is an abandoned factory…

    You Were Never Really Here

    ★★

    I've never been a huge fan of films that are more of a sensory experience than a narrative one, and this is a perfect example. There are here some good ideas, some good scenes, a good performance by Phoenix, but ultimately style over substance is also here from start to finish, and the style isn't even that great. So if you like meandering plots and boring seen it before violence, You Were Never Really Here is the movie for you.

    I solemnly swear that this movie is THAT good.
