  • The Third Man

    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…

  • Alita: Battle Angel

    Alita: Battle Angel

    ★★★½

    Eat this, Marvel Industries!

    I do not know the source material of the movie and did not even know until a few months ago that there was an Alita manga at all. Therefore, I can’t say anything about how close the movie content is to the original material. What I can say is that ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL uses a lot of ideas from other movies. Obviously, there is a relationship and a lot of similarity to films like Rollberball, Blade…

    How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

    ★★★

    SMALLFOOT last year and now THE HIDDEN WORLD have proven that computer technology has finally and completely tamed the four elements of earth, air, fire and water. Digital artists, who are also digital engineers, can now fool the human eye into a world that is barely distinguishable from reality.

  • Bohemian Rhapsody

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    ★★★★

    “I’m a romantic, but I do put up a barrier around myself, so it is hard for people to get in and to know the real me.“
    - Freddy Mercury

    I was lucky enough to experience QUEEN live on stage. Back then on July 21st, 1986, when I was 20 years old, I was amazed by the pure energy bundle Freddy Mercury! Since then, I realize why Mr. Fahrenheit traveled at the speed of light. To this date, this appearance…
