    Ghost in the Shell


    Visually recreating many of the scenes of the original anime in painstakingly close detail does not make a movie great. Worse, if said scenes look the same but are put in a different context, they lose the meaning that was originally intended. As such, Ghost in the Shell (2017) is not much more than The Force Awakens: a very expensive fanfilm.

    Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets


    Not terrible, but not great either. Hyperactive nonsense (with piss-poor 3D) that could be a lot of fun if it had a more likeable – and convincing – duo to lead the audience through the movie.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens


    Probably the most expensive Star Wars fanfilm ever made.

    Linklater has done it again.

    I must confess, after Dazed & Confused (which is my own favourite movie of all time), i was more than a little sceptical that this – or any movie – could be a worthy successor, especially after the disappointing Boyhood. But i was pleasently surprised at what i saw unfold in front of my eyes.

    No, it’s not the best movie ever made, but it’s a darn good slice-of-life film.
