    Alien: Covenant

    ★★★½

    love the clarity of this movie. no shaking camera, no hiding much in the dark. The Alien CGI is incredibly good!
    The ideas of the story are okay, feels like they knew what to do not until after Prometheus and retconed a lot of stuff. It's a lot of "Frankenstein is not the monster. But actually he is". Although this would be better without all of the baggage of the Alien franchise.
    Katherine Waterston has her Ripley moments, but Michael Fassbender delivers the best performance.
    Overall I am pleased with the movie, because I didn't expect more than just average.

  • The Party

    The Party

    ★★★★

    Not as furious as Carnage. But with good camerawork, fantastic dialogues and a constantly shifting story. 71 minutes makes this movie to a fast ride with a very abrupt ending.
    So much love for Bruno Ganz and Patrica Clarkson!

    Synecdoche, New York

    I can not give this movie a star rating, I even couldn't say if I liked it or not. I have this weird feeling, like after watching Brazil or reading the Trial. It is a unique movie, brilliant for sure. And if I could take a seminar on this movie I would instantly. But just for watching like any other movie it is just too much. In a sense, I didn't get the movie but the movie got me.

    Man Walking Around a Corner

    Definitely 4 frames too long. But at least, it is an original script and not an adaptation.
