    Oblivion

    ★★★½

    Gave this another spin one year after watching it in the theatre.

    I would have rated it 8/10 this time but had to take 1 off because of "Fuck you Sally".

    I want a mustache like this.

    A review in one word: Overproduced

  • Oblivion

    Oblivion

    ★★★½

    Oblivion gets a lot of minor things right and one major thing wrong. I’m a big fan of those minor things and that’s why I enjoyed it so much: Dystopian future, futuristic vehicles and buildings, lots of fake UIs and a great sci-fi plot device.

    The major thing wrong is the story. I don’t know when Joseph Kosinski wrote the the screenplay but the movie has elements from so many movies, we stopped counting at some point: Moon, the Island,…

  • Ocean's Eleven

    Ocean's Eleven

    ★★★★

    Still new things to discover after multiple viewings. The dialogs are just superb, so are the little details like Brad Pitt constantly munching on junk food.

  • Samsara

    Samsara

    ★★★★½

    You know you’re watching a good movie if you give it a spin twice during a 24h rental period. Samsara was my first venture into the world of Ron Fricke and I will definitely explore further.

  • Star Trek

    Star Trek

    ★★★½

    I think this was my 3rd time viewing it and it has slowly gotten better as I shake my high expectations. The dialog for the most part is really well written and you start to care about the characters towards the end.

  • Slumdog Millionaire

    Slumdog Millionaire

    ★★★★

    One of the few films that have gone down in rating on a second viewing. The end feels rushed and cliché.
