    Prey

    ★★★★

    Loved that the movie has some thematical depth and constantly depicts, examines and then changes up lots of predator/prey dynamics, ranging from animal/animal, human/animal, human/human and finally human/highly developed alien. The setting is chosen perfectly for this theme and for this narrative. I loved that they dubbed the whole mobie in comanche, even though only a few people will watch it that way.
    It sadly never reaches the visual heights and the same level of horror and suspense of the…

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    It's funny, Marvel is always criticized for having weak villains, so they try to fix it, by having an established character as the villain. It was already not that good in Wandavision but at least they tried to explore the character a little bit. This just throws everything out of the window to make her a one-dimensional villain with the lamest "redemption" I've seen in a long time.

    Sam Raimi's visual style is fun to watch but I didn't care for anything in between action/horror scenes.

    What did I just watch? Sick and insane ending in just the right way, it even subverts typical gender roles in the end in a great way. Great ending to an otherwise only decent movie.
    (But like holy shit that ending)

    I'm at a local film festival and I won't log all the films I watch (most of them are shorts anyway, which I don't log on Letterbox) but this was the first film shown here, it's feature length I want to have this in my diary (just want to mention too, that I've seen some amazing shorts, I'm having a great time here).

    What a great movie, about a youth detention center in Madagascar. It started with the tragic (but…

    Quentin Tarantino appears in old man make-up and claims he is a "Anime-Otaku".
    Cinematic masterpice. 10/10 (-3 for the treatment of women)

    My 1,000 film logged here 🎉🎉

    What better way to celebrate than with a classic movie I've always wanted to see, which celebrates the magic of cinema!

    I'm so glad I've decided to really dive into movies ~4 years ago, it's weird to think now, that for a long time I didn't consider myself a movie lover. But I've met many of my best friends through our shared love of the moving image!

    Here's to another 1,000!

    A Story of Floating Weeds

    ★★★

    Had a fascinating experience with this one. The DVD and the version on youtube had no music at all, which I always dislike. Even silent movies need some kind of music, to support the emotions of the scene (also my neighbours had techno music on, so that was the other choice of music lol). So i just threw on a Ozu score compilation on youtube and hoped the right kind of music came on.
    There was one literally perfect sync:…

    Ray

    ★★

    So I'm writing about structure and character relations in Music-biopics for a seminar but I didn't really think it through, that I now have to watch a bunch of those :(

    Anyway this one isn't really good, even as a formulaic biopic. The story jumps all over the place and feels more like a wikipedia article, than a coherent story. The characters have to constantly spell out the themes in every situation possible (like when Ray's child is born and…

    ★★★★½

    Very effective movie about the pointlessness of war and nationalism. There are no heroes, no noble goal, no evil villains, only unnessecary death and destruction.
