    Bullet Train

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

    When I read Bullet Train, I had this one recurring thought: This is going to be so much better as a movie. The action felt very cinematic, the character traits were very adaptable for the screen, the storylines and background information about characters already felt more like things from a movie script rather than from a compelling book. In fact, I didn‘t love the book, but was sure I would find everything that I felt like was missing from it…

    Thor: Love and Thunder

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

    What went wrong with Thor: Love and Thunder actually can be explained by simply looking at the scene at the beginning before the Marvel intro. After Gorr loses his daughter, there is the moment where he stands in front of that God (that may or may not had a name I can‘t recall) and they speak to each other. Christian Bale‘s acting in this scene is very dramatic and serious (some might even say over the top), the God‘s acting…

    Top Gun: Maverick

    Good things come to those who wait (aka me)! If this had been released in 2020, as originally intended, I most likely wouldn’t have watched this. My "Post-Covid" era, however, is about celebrating the cinematic experience and the movie theater itself, so I'm even willing to sit through a Tom Cruise movie. Cinema isn’t dead and never will be - I want to make that very clear because a lot of people seem to be convinced of the opposite. I…

    Saludos Amigos

    Imagine going on a work-trip to several places in South America paid by the government as part of the “good neighbor policy” to make a movie that will help form a friendship with the Latin countries holding close ties with Nazi-Germany and this is the shit you come up with. 

    I can’t believe I watched this for a second time. From a modern perspective I really don’t know what to get out of this or why to watch it if…

    Quite honestly, at this point in my life I aspire to live in a house with as many fancy clocks and music boxes as Geppetto.

  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

    I appreciate this movie a lot more since watching a video that put it into historical context of when it was released - which isn't something I expected from this of all movies because it really isn't that serious.

    I do believe that the key to understanding and enjoying old movies is to put in some work and get context, read up on things concerning the movie, but also knowing neccessary things about the time (not just for the movie,…

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Huh. So for a movie this pretty, with fantastic camerawork and direction that fresh compared to other MCU projects, I feel like I should have enjoyed it more than I did.
    There are things to like and things to dislike. The beginning was a little fast imo, but it reminded me of 2000s superhero movies in that regard (which is cool and kind of what I would have wished for in a lot of other MCU films because they have…

    Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore

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

    The sad thing is that even though this is definitely better than the second film, it's still ridiculously meaningless and even in its best moments never more than mediocre.

    They just make up shit as they go. Nothing means anything. Nothing even really happens even though everything happens all the time. They don't know what this is supposed to be and what to do with any of the characters until movie 5's showdown between Grindelwald and Dumbledore. That's literally the…
