  • The Lodger

    The Lodger

    ★★★½

    Did some searching and browsing on YouTube and came across this one about an older couple who suspects that their lodger is Jack the Ripper. Never heard of it before but I thought it was pretty good. Not much in the horror department but the shots of foggy London were very atmospheric and the camerawork was also pretty outstanding in those scenes, especially the opening scene. The guy playing the lodger is also appropriately creepy and unnerving. A nice surprise.

  • Kong: Skull Island

    Kong: Skull Island

    ★★★½

    Pure popcorn fodder. It's all so predictable and cgi heavy (ofcourse it is and I don't mind a computer generated giant monkey hitting helicopters out of the air but some of the greenscreen backgrounds look a bit cheap and silly) but besides that it's a fun adventure movie.

    Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

    ★★★★

    Yesterday I had the privilege to see this movie in a small theatre accompanied by an "Scent DJ". So whenever there was a (key) scene in the movie that concerned a certain smell (and in this movie almost all the key scenes regard scents) the audience would also experience this. And that's simply awesome and totally works with this film! It really adds something to this film and it was an outstanding experience.

    ★½

    I was prepared for the worst but it still made sad.
