    Aquaman

    The film about the master of the oceans does have merit in side of the effects, which to date are one of finest I have seen. Certain aspects and the colour-world are finely done. Just what one expects from a good comic-book to film adaptation.
    But that’s it.
    The word simple doesn’t begin to describe the plot. It is almost non-existent. The same hero-warrior-endless fighting etc. ethos we see in any film of this genre told in the most unsuspenceful…

    Even if Kubrick was a perfectionist, this film has slight interference in editing. Especially in the pace between the War Room and B-52 at the near end…

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★½

    A thoroughly enjoyable film. The directing is good, which cannot be said about the many films of this scale. The action is a bit too insisting but one always enjoys a good space battle.
    Once Star Wars was something original, but Rogue One seems to loane from various blockbuster cliches. From Saving Private Ryan to all those eastern kung-fu films. As well as films depicting that somewhat dreary life on space. However the original took it's share from westerns and…
