• The Witches

    The Witches


    Something weird about 90-minute movies where they're always busy getting from the beginning to the end and you're never really 'in' them. This is a good one though, almost perfect maybe.

  • The Club of Ugly Children

    The Club of Ugly Children


    Pleasantly surprised by Maan's performance, she could be something as an actress. Too bad her character was hardly used, as pretty much everything in the movie is underdeveloped/underused. And I didn't even like the book that much (I'm a fan of Meinderts, but this one didn't do it for me. Maybe too on the nose).

  • The Lovebirds

    The Lovebirds


    It’s a mash-up of The Big Sick and Game Night, where the sum is less than the parts.

  • Mean Girls

    Mean Girls


    Less funny and more heartfelt than I remembered.

  • The Double

    The Double


    So stylized/abstract right from the start, it didn’t really mean anything to me when it got weirder still. Good soundtrack.

  • Holy Motors

    Holy Motors


    Last night I had no clue what to rate this. Holy Motors did feel good, I was amused all the way through, compelled even. I had some ideas about what it might be about, but nothing connected. Lots of interesting stuff, but why? So I chose 3 stars plus a heart.

    Woke up thinking it should be 4. Then I read more about the film and its author, some ideas started weaving together. Now I felt I should (re)watch Carax's…

  • Bacurau



    Shichinin no Bacurau.

  • Ad Astra

    Ad Astra


    Apocalypse 2001, where Marlon Brando is Keir Dullea’s dad, and he explains way too much.

  • Extraction



    Weird action sequences where Thor is not clearly in harm yet shoots dozens of enemies off screen and throws a few granates to boot.

  • The Farewell

    The Farewell


    A nice companion piece to Crazy Rich Asians, or probably the other way around.

  • Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

    Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome


    I really enjoyed finally watching all movies in this 'franchise'. They're so different. From a low-budget biker movie and a Kurosawa-structured desert epic to this one, which almost reads like a children's adventure movie.

  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1


    One of the few Potter movies that aren't bad, because Harry, Hermione and Ron actually interact (with emotions and other character stuff like that).
