    And It Was Denmark...

    ★★★★

    Let me start off by saying I lived in Copenhagen in 1992 and I have never in my life witnessed anything like that summer. it was the first major football tournament I really got into, despite living in Amsterdam in 1988, when Holland won the Euros and being English (England had a very good World Cup in 1990 in Italy).

    Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    ★★★★½

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

    Cashback

    ★★★½

    An unexpectedly good film. Some really funny moments, a bit of sci-fi, a love-story and lots of naked women in a supermarket. What's not to like?
