    House of Gucci

    ★★★

    So me and my girlfriend went a saw House of Gucci in the cinema.
    Besides us, there was another couple and a middle-aged man.

    This man said "Grazie" out loud when the movie started. That should've been the warning sign.

    For the first 40 or so minutes, it was fine. Then the man started histerically laughing during a scene which was mildly funny at best.
    And that's how it started.

    The guy was obviously drunk, he kept talking over the…

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★★

    It was fine. It was OK.

    Action was better than most of the MCU, but no John Wick. It was good for what it was.
    I do have to say however that the CGI was distracting, even in the smaller scaled action scenes.
    Plus, with some of the scenes, I couldn't help, but think of other movies. The fight on the bus? We had that this year in Nobody. A fight in a skyscraper lit by a neon light? We…

  • No Time to Die

    No Time to Die

    ★★★½

    “The name is Bond… James Bond.“

    Daniel Craig returns one last time to play the ultimate badass himself. This time an evil villain comes who has attained something dangerous that would make him essentially the most powerful person in the world.
    So, just like any other day, am I right?

    After the boring and tonally inconsistent disaster that was Specter someone new was needed to step in a let Craig leave on a high. And that someone turned out to…

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★★½

    Long have we waited…

    Four years after Blade Runner 2049 and a whole year after it’s original release date, Denis Villeneuve’s Dune is finally here. Oh my god… I remember those first concept arts that were shown those 4 years ago. And now, at last, I was able to see the movie in a packed cinema.
    Not in IMAX, unfortunately, because they are only doing 3D IMAX screenings here, which sucks, ‘cause you know… 3D is useless.

    Anyway, how was…

  • Quo vadis, Aida?

    Quo vadis, Aida?

    ★★★★½

    Back in cinemas after 371 days... and what a movie I picked for the comeback.

    Quo vadis, Aida? is emotionally devastating, absolutely brutal and honest in it's depiction of the consequences of war.
    The performances are perfect and really help sell the urgency of the situation. Especially the lead performance was Oscar-worthy.

    I also have to praise the direction and cinematography. There were several well done long takes that didn't draw attention to themselves, but were neat once noticed.
    The…

    If anyone can explain to me how that piece of the algorithm got inside that silver car I will watch Jack and Jill to punish myself for not getting it.

    This movie made Taika Waititi not funny. You know how hard you have to try for Taika Waititi to not be funny?

    Also, when they played the Avengers theme and the Star Wars theme, I thought I was in hell.

    ★½

    Boy, oh boy...

    M. Night Shyamalan is probably the most frustraiting director ever. I want to like his movies so much, but he just keeps disappointing.

    Old is not his worst movie, not by a long shot (keep in mind I still haven't seen Lady in the Water and The Visit), but I feel like I won't be thinking much about it in the coming months. Even something like The Last Airbender has stuck with me because of it's awfulness.…

    The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

    ★★★★½

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

    Watching the Extended Edition for the second time, but I didn't remember my experience at all, so it's basically like first viewing

    The Two Towers has always been my least favourite of the trilogy. However, that still means it's an amazing fantasy epic.

    I have some issues.
    1.) It feel like Frodo is kind of given the short end of the stick here, because he has to make space for the final battle.
    2.) The whole unreciprocated love storyline with…

  • Bo Burnham: Inside

    Bo Burnham: Inside

    ★★★★

    If there's a word that describes this special the best, I think "honest" is the right one.

    It feels like a confession of a man who sees a lot of wrong in the world, but at the same time he acknowledges his own powerlessness and even indiference sometimes.
    It all amounts to a overwhelming experience... kind of similar to the overwhelming world that Burnham is criticizing.
    At the same time though, he is also making fun of priviledged people like…

    Strangely timeless considering how many times "the N word" is mentioned...

    So... yeah...

    I... I think... but then again...

    So I think I'm kinda grasping this... So Diane had a relationship with Camilla, but she was going to marry the director she worked for. And so Diane was so heartbroken she hired a guy who would make Camilla disappear.
    And most of the movie is the manifestation of her guilt, in which she imagines a possible "timeline" in which Camilla escaped and met with Diane's look alike...
    But her guilt ultimately…
