    The Truman Show


    I rewatched it for the bazillionth time and it’s still amazing. Had it at a 9/10 before, but my love for it grows stronger everytime I watch it — so I just had to make it 10/10.

  • Brimstone



    I’m not easily shocked. I’m from Holland and we can swear and show tits, dick and pussy on tv — so I’m used to stuff like that. I’m also fine with gore and violence — hell, there’s more gore on those plastic surgery tv shows.

    But this one — this one shocked me a few times. Not in terms of goriness, but more because of the viciousness of The Reverend, his fucking retarded motives, and how other characters made drastic…

    I Kill Giants


    I wanted to like Barbara from the start, but she made it so hard. I knew there was something why she was the way she was, but I really had trouble accepting her behaviour without really knowing why she was acting that way. So the last 40 minutes or so -to me- were a lot more enjoyable, because it made it easier to like Barbara.

  • American Pastoral

    Well, that was one pretentious, boring movie. Just watched it like 5 minutes ago, and I kinda already forgot what it was about, tbh.

  • Complete Unknown

    Michael Shannon and Rachel Weisz did their best, but ultimately the second half kinda just became snoozefest. Tomorrow I’ve probably forgotten what happened for most of the movie.

  • Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan

    Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan


    The first half was great. The final battle as well, except for the helicopter view shots which looked really fake. I liked the cinematography and production design too. It was the second half that really made it tough to get through.

  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

    Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales


    “Oh no! [PERSON] is cursed! We need the [OBJECT] to save them! The only problem is: [BAD GUY] has the object; plus we need [ANOTHER OBJECT] to find the [OBJECT]. But here’s an idea: let’s -begrudgingly- work together with [OTHER BAD GUY] to get [ANOTHER OBJECT], then get the [OBJECT] (all while narrowingly escaping death by British officers and shouting ‘Hold it steady, boys’ and ‘Parlay’) and then triple-cross everybody in the end so we can go on and make another PotC movie, because Disney is giving us a shit ton of gold pieces.”

  • Same Kind of Different as Me

    Same Kind of Different as Me


    Bit too much. Bit over the top. Waaaaaay too religious. Apparently it’s from some sort of Christian production company — only found afterwards — but it’s going on the blacklist.

    Thought the score was nice, though.

  • Only Lovers Left Alive

    Only Lovers Left Alive


    Visually I thought it was great: great cinematography, colours and production design. But it was a bit too slow for my taste and it had trouble keeping my attention.

  • Les Misérables

    Les Misérables


    Geoffrey Rush is a freaking treasure! That guy is awesome. I thought he was brilliant as Javert.

  • Big



    It was sweet. And also a little creepy when Susan said he should keep her number.

  • Under the Skin

    Under the Skin


    There was something intriguing here that kept me watching, something about the imagery. But in the end it didn’t really do anything for me.

    Also, did anyone else get a Robbie Williams ‘Rock DJ’ vs. Blue Man Group vibe with that last scene?
