    Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time


    First of all, it’s necessary to say the rating is as personal as the movies itself - and I am struggling much right now to put my thoughts into words. Evangelion is something that accompanies me for more than the half of my life, so let me say that this franchise is kind of a big deal for me. Watching the anime series as a young teen was one of the most influential experiences I ever had with a piece…

    The whole thing is an A24 "atmospheric bone-chilling character-driven slow-burn arthouse"-meme.

    A satire of A24 by A24. All of that is nothing but weird for the sake of being weird. And OF COURSE it's dealing with a trauma through artsy symbolism again (and doesn't forget to show you a naked old penis). Tries so hard being a modern social commentary, instead of building tense and having focus at least, it offers only boredom and most possible surface level of toxic…

    Sci-Fi aus der DDR wird wohl für immer ein Kuriosum darstellen. Trotz zahlreichen (zu erwartenden) kommunistischen Botschaften im Film, die wahrscheinlich auch der Grund für seine nicht existente Bekanntheit sind -und meine fehlende Wertung-, kann man ihn aufgrund seines deutlich mehr überraschenden Unterhaltungswertes definitiv empfehlen. Allein, weil er zeigt wie leichtherzig und gar ideenreich deutsche Comedy ohne anstrengende Längen sein kann bzw. konnte.

    Über weite Teile fühlte ich mich bei dem Konzept an Er ist wieder da, bloß vom anderen…

    The Most Terrifying Movie IN HISTORY!

    Who knows or follows me for a longer time, must have seen what obscure shit I sometimes log and I admit that there is a lot of alluring fascination about that microbudget J-horror I share that often enough looks like filmed by a student film club during a weekend without any proper equipment, experience or even permission, but an undeniable huge amount of ambitions. Not sure if it's correct to say this about the…

    The God of Ramen


    Some people are just born for what they are doing.

    Similiar to the touching family-story Tora-san of Goto, it pictures one persons dedication to its craft. Covering more of the god's origins, love and struggle with health than describing the way of his work, it provides many insights in Kazuo Yamagishis life he spent mostly in his little universe of a kitchen and 16 seats.

    Mastered fine-tuning of his recipes and teached several apprentices while handled the hour-long queues…

    English review below

    Wenn es nicht mit großer Sicherheit eins dieser von einer KI verfassten Filme aus dem Random-Generator ist, dann eines der mit generischsten Versuche mit dem eh schon das Jenseits betretenen Franchise Leichenschändung dadurch zu betreiben es in das Korsett von allem zu pressen was die derzeitige Zielgruppenforschung runterbetet.

    Bereits die Laufzeit, die erbärmlicherweise als Qualitätsfeature aufgezählt wird, stinkt unfassbar nach Kalkül und dem damit verbundenen Versuch dem alles unterzuordnen - wobei damit die Ähnlichkeit zum Original beginnt…
