  • Sicario

    Sicario

    ★★★★

    The first time I watched this, I didn't really see why it was considdered so good. After watching other works by Villeneuve I returned to Sicario and paid extra attention and it paid off. The shots are beautiful and the plot is both important and exciting. The last scene of the film is probably my favorite, making sure this isn't just another ethnocentric american film where Mexico is just a place where drugs come from.

  • Planet of the Apes

    Planet of the Apes

    ★★★★

    What a story. This is from a time when sci-fi could be 'all in' without being too much. It feels so 'on the nose' that it reminds me a bit of orwells novels... In a good way.
    This covers time travel, the need to 'live forever, colonization, racism, religion/science and of course destruction of our own species through war. It's also the film equivalent of me in the first grade when my friends burned ants through magnifying glassed and I…

  • The Father

    The Father

    ★★★★

    Holy sh*t! This gave me existencial dread and made me wonder when life is worth living and what actually makes you you. Are you still you when you lose your memories? When you start acting differently because your brain is altering?

    All in all this film is unique and amazing and even then I don't think I could revisit it. I'm exhausted.

  • Gravity

    Gravity

    ★★★★

    What a magnificent piece of cinematography. It's wild that something as vast as space can make you feel so claustrophobic. Sure some of the lines ends up a bit too sob-story for my taste but it doesn't ruin the film at all since we're really there for the action and not the dialogue. Clooney is charming and works better than I expected and Bullock is cool as well.
    The first 20 minutes is one long shot that introduces us to everything we need to know.

  • Flee

    Flee

    ★★★★

    This is such a beautiful and clever way to make a documentary. Also an extremely important subject.

  • The Power of the Dog

    The Power of the Dog

    ★★★★

    Great acting, BEAUTIFUL scenery and a nuanced story with subtle hints of most plot elements that most test audiences would've made into bad ADR exposition if they'd had their will.
    It certainly took its' time and had it's oscarbaity moments but overall a worthwhile film that seems to good to be straight to netflix.

  • The Night House

    The Night House

    ★★★★

    Hereditary, Get Out, Midsommar, The Night House.
    This is much better than I expected. Apart from a few anoying jumpscares, this is really great. The exposition is smooth, the story is creative and original and the acting is amazing. If you like the films mentioned above don't dismiss The Night House as a mediocre film just because it's straight to VOD. It's not up there with the three masterpieces of the last couple of years but it's closer to those than to your average mediocre horror film.

  • Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One

    Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One

    ★★★★

    This is the best animated dc film i can remember watching. It took me back to being a child and watching the animated series going "man that's so cool!".


    The Long Halloween takes it's time and doesn't try to do a bunch of new innovative things. Instead it takes what works from the comics and animated series and continues along that path. That applies to the plot but also to the aestetics that are amazing. It's beautiful and looks a…

  • Minari

    Minari

    ★★★★

    This was oddly satisfying. Really beautiful and it stuck with me afterwards.

  • The Omen

    The Omen

    ★★★★

    A classic for a reason. I'm a sucker for films about the devil and this hits all of the clichés in a good way. I do wish there was more emergy spent on Damien as he is more or less just an object for the plot to move around.

  • Goldfinger

    Goldfinger

    ★★★★

    A beloved classic for good reason.
    This feels like Bond from the novels. A sexist, alcoholic, incredibly lucky brute. The sexist part certainly makes this a problematic film in hindsight but my rosetinted glasses makes me almost have fun with it. Bond actually rapes somebody into submission...

  • Don't Breathe

    Don't Breathe

    ★★★★

    Great idea, excellent execution!
    So many films in this genre have to come up with super forced reasons for the plot to continue but Don't Breathe is a brilliant showcase of how you prolongue the plot organically. There is never a time where you wanna go "why didn't you just leave or call the police".

    Also the concept of the blind man is used very creatively, especially during the scenes without light.

    Super simple, super cool.
