    Logan's Run


    I was surprised that this film is not from 1966. The idea and especially the presence of Richard Jordan lift the film a little out of its colorful morass. But unfortunately, a lot of things are not right here and the message is hard to take.

    Scream VI


    6 reasons why Scream VI is a boring movie to me:

    1. show it instead of explaining it - „Show don‘t tell“
    2. if the story is structured too complicated, find better ways than explaining everything with tedious exposition dialogues.
    3. if you break new ground, use it!
    4. character depth is not achieved through turgid dialogues.
    5. find the right speed and lot’s of red herrings to distract from your plot holes (Craven and Williamsen were Masters at it)
    6. take your audience seriously

    Critics and viewers were very skeptical after Antiviral. Possessor was at least able to put an exclamation mark on the film.…
