    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).

    Now that obviously affects my feelings towards Danish football. I grew up with names like Schmeichel, the Laudrup brothers, Povlsen,…

    Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    ★★★★½

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

    Quite different to the first film in many ways. The first one was grittier and darker, felt a bit more fresh, the story was a lot "smaller" and the film didn't have that blockbuster feel about it.

    This is not a great film. Heck, it isn't always even a good film. But it really did turn my frown upside down. I was having a couple of lousy days and watched this to not think of how life was treating me. While it wasn't always great, it has heart, and it had 3 or 4 moments that had me laughing so hard I was almost crying. Now I just finished watching it, I feel so much better and…

    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?
