    The Girl in the Spider's Web

    ★★★

    To understand how this is different from Fincher's version look no further than some road signs in this film - you can clearly see that they are not in swedish (Fincher would never let something like that happen, and that applies not only to signs, but to everything else).

    Was ready to hate it, but it was not THAT bad - Claire Foy is a decent Lisbeth and grows on you, and there's a cool Lakeith Stanfield here, which is always a bonus. The less said about the Blumkvist, the better.

    Shadow in the Cloud

    ★★★★

    It was some time since I was THAT ENTERTAINED by a film - while it's definetely not for everyone, someone will have a blast with it! Try it, if you liked "Overlord" (2018).

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★½

    A perfectly executed lesson in world-building, stunt-staging, editing and non-stop suspense from the (mad) mastermind George Miller also serves as a huge middle-finger to modern-day action "products" - it's fast, brutal, violent and, at times, utterly mad.

    We needed a film like this, and we got it - I'm not sure yet if I need a sequel, I just want to see this one again (and again) to soak in all the details!

  • Escobar: Paradise Lost

    Escobar: Paradise Lost

    ★★★

    Part biographical slice, part fictional romantic drama, neither in the end, as film unsuccessfully tries to interest us in Josh Hutchinson's story, when we really came for Benicio.

    That leaves an angry overall impression, and not because the film is bad (it works, it fails, and, most importantly, it tries), but because now we are definetely robbed of proper Escobar biography with Benicio del Toro in the lead role, whose stuff in this film is brilliant - all twenty minutes of it.
