    It Comes at Night

    ★★★★

    Did not get the dreams of Travis and what really that "It" was. The disease? Don't think so. Maybe I just need to rest and think about this movie afterwards. But other than that - top notch suspense, acting (I just adore Joel Edgerton) and I was not bored for one second. What else can you expect from good thriller?

    Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

    ★★★½

    I am pretty shocked that I liked Valerian as much as I did.
    Because of two things:
    1) Luc Besson - our relationship is "complicated" to say the least. While I loved and still love The Fifth Element, almost everything else has just been horrendous piece of shit (haven't seen Leon).
    2) Sci-fi/Fantasy - I have hated almost every movie (except all three new Star Wars and both Guardians of the Galaxy) that in the last couple of years have…

    The Monuments Men

    ★★½

    Līdzīgi kā ar The Railway Man, arī šis bija potenciāli superīgs projekts un filma - interesants stāsts pamatā, patiesi notikumi, lieliski aktieri, atzīstams režisors, bet...
    Klūnijs sametis visu vienā čupā, turklāt tam visam nepietiek laika - ap visiem personāžiem filmas veidotāji nedaudz apskrubinājušies apkārt un viss. Daudzas ainas ir dīvainas, nesaprotami iemestas tajā un tajā filmas nogrieznī bez pamata un jēgas...
    Jociņi arī tādi samocīti, sajūta, ka vecajiem bukiem nebija iekšā, gandrīz kā - atbraucām, uzfilmējām, saņēmām honorāru un braucam mājās.
    Diemžēl, diezgan liels dissapointments :(

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★½

    No idea why no one have mentioned it but Mad Max is the screen version of bad ass computer game Borderlands.

    Crazy wheels and cool action scenes but apart of that the movie provides us with absolute zero. Nothing! Mad Max: Fury Road is a real, ironic desert.
    But I enjoyed it. Not as good as I thought it would be but at least it was indisputably entertaining
