    The Third Man

    ★★★★½

    The leading actor: Vienna. Bombed capital of Austria, divided into four Allied occupation zones. Dark nights. Black shadows, always in fearful motion. Dull, gray daylight. Sewers that look like abandoned gothic cathedrals. The city is ruled by black market. Shady characters roam lonely streets. Hasty footsteps echo on the damp cobblestones. Vienna has gone through terrible times. And still there will be some uncertain years left.

    In the middle of it: The Zither music of Anton Karas. In additon to…

The entangled levels of time that characterize Ritchie's films don't work very well and reveal too much of the story far too early.

    Hugh Grant stands out from the ensemble! His performance is consistently over the top.…

    ★★★★

    Pet Sematary

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

    By far the scariest part of the story was Jason Clarke in the role of a warmhearted and loyal family man.

    Does horror actually only arise if the protagonists do exactly what normal people would never do?

    Why do authors, screenwriters and directors of horror stories believe that people act always irrational in uncomfortable situations? I can’t remember when I saw the last horror movie, in which the characters rationally responded to threats. How boring this genre has become ...…
