    The Red Shoes


    Movie #1 of Scavenger Hunt #26 – May 2017.
    Task #17: Watch a film with some kind of clothing in its title.
    This movie is so beautifully shot that the visuals alone is worth the watch. The ballet scene is stunning.
    I really loved the score.
    The story itself is simple but engaging and with an ending that took me by surprise.
    All in all this movie is a thing of beauty.

  • The Net

    The Net


    Movie #1 of Scavenger Hunt #23 – February 2017.
    Task #3: A movie featuring computer programming.
    This movie is dated but still entertaining.
    It is too long (almost 2 hours) and because of that it has some dull moments.
    Sandra Bullock plays the same role as she did in almost all of her movies in the 90s - but she's charming and does a fine job.

    Nothing special and predictable but watchable and entertaining.

    Before Sunrise


    This is one of my all-time favorite movies.
    Everything just works: the acting, the chemistry, the settings, the intensity, the romance, the emotions.


    Can't wait to watch "Before Midnight".

    Night of the Creeps


    Movie #31 of Hoop-tober.

    So much fun!
    Alien slugs, an alcoholic bitter policeman, a nerd who has a crush on the popular girl, a flamethrower and zombies.

    I was entertained. A pleasant last entry for hoop-tober.
