  • The Haunted World of El Superbeasto

    The Haunted World of El Superbeasto

    I watched this film already this year because I forgot almost everthing from the first time. There is a reason for that.

    It just can't catch up with the far better series/film Drawn Together.
    Good adult comic films are not that easy to make. Another example is Frith the cat which surely was a model to this one.

  • Prime Cut

    Prime Cut

    You get the dirty little 70s crime flick you want. Even if the violence could be a little more explicit in that kind of movie.

  • Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion

    Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion

    ★★★★★

    Some of the greatest cinema has to offer. Plus a japanese Gaddafi (as a warden).

  • Bullitt

    Bullitt

    ★★★½

    I don't know what it is with this film.
    I like the look. It has some stylish violent scenes that I do like a lot. I think Steve McQueen is cool as fuck and the car chase sequence is just damn great.
    But there is something with the acting and the lack of suspense at which I'm not sure if it's really the acting bothering me that the film doesn't catch me as I wished it would.

  • Nosferatu the Vampyre

    Nosferatu the Vampyre

    ★★★

    Ich bin der Biervampir.

  • Everybody Wants Some!!

    Everybody Wants Some!!

    ★★★★★

    Der Film hätte auch 4-5 Std laufen können.

  • Au Hasard Balthazar

    Au Hasard Balthazar

    Ich war begeistert von "a man escaped".
    Bei diesem Film ging es mir exakt wie Ingmar Bergman:
    "this Balthazar, I didn’t understand a word of it, it was so completely boring."

  • Andrei Rublev

    Andrei Rublev

    ★★★

    Part 2/2

  • Andrei Rublev

    Andrei Rublev

    Part 1/2

  • Why Don't You Play in Hell?

    Why Don't You Play in Hell?

    Der Film erzählt die Geschichte eines jungen japanischen Werner Herzog in der Neuzeit.

  • Project A

    Project A

    Ein chinesischer Sid Haid, ein Piratenkönig mit hamburger Seefahrerakzent und harte Gewalt inmitten lustiger Sprüche und Slapstickeinlagen. Das ist "Der Superfighter".

  • Iron Monkey

    Iron Monkey

    Herrlich überzogen, aber mit einer Selbsverständlichkeit, die diesen Film so wunderbar macht.
