    Sami Blood

    ★★★★

    First and foremost, this is a film about a girl and her feelings, her inner and outer struggles, her body and soul, her painful healing process. Then of course, it’s about being the outsider, the one who must adapt, the urge to fit in, the longing for something else and the will and strength that it takes to break out.

    ★½

    It also delivers a pretty smooth setup for the beginning of the original Star Wars movie, ”Episode IV: A New Hope” (1977). Remember the opening scene…

    ★★★½

    Wow, this was unlike any Marvel movie I’ve ever seen. They’ve ditched the usual blockbuster formula in favour of a character-driven story, so while previous films have been fairly light, this is some truly heavy shit. Well, maybe not if compared to ”The Road”, which comes to mind (even though ”Logan” is probably closer to the PS4 game ”The Last of Us”), but as far as comic book-movies go, it’s pretty dark. Still, as I mentioned in the ”Wolverine” review:…
