    The mesmerizing beauty of the Japanese Underground


    A beautiful portrait about the Gay Boys, that's seemingly what some Transvestites called themselves in the early awakening of the culture around the Sixties in Japan.

    I'm at loss for words, at how progressive this movie was for its time and still would be today, with all the shots of people reacting to some of the most beautiful Trans-Women I've ever laid eyes on, where every movement and every eye blinking is so…

    You cannot choose your Family


    If the goal was to film the quintessential of sorrow, I think this movie might comes as close as it can get. The whole alienation from every single sister is a painfully beautiful melancholy stroll along some of the most depressing, and trenched in red, rooms you'll ever witness in a motion picture. Every shot, every angle, expression on the face or simply a small gesture with the hand. Everything is trenched with a deep…

    Run, little extra Girl, Run


    The more serious remake of the 2007 Movie Run, Fatboy, Run, changing it up with a very charming and faulty female lead that really resembles a lot of angst we have to face in our everyday routine and how to break out of a devilish spiral. That's life in a nutshell.
    But, once you're in the Friend-Zone, you stay in the Friend-Zone!

    One of the big splashes from Sundance this year, where Amazon payed a…

    What a Beast of a Movie!


    From perfect Camera, Sound and incredible Actors and all rapped up in the first Brainsplatter, as I like to call this Movie, I have ever seen.

    I was at the Fantasy Film Fest in 2004 at the screening of this enormous Masterpiece. It was a incredible Atmosphere!

    Till half hour before the ending you hear laugther, chuckles and gasping. But when the climax came, there was dead silence long after the credits were gone.…

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★½

    “I'm one with the Force,
    and the Force is with me.”

    If you follow Star Wars at least a bit, then you'll know what the Main-Story-line here is, despite that you avoided as much information as possible.
    If not, well, the Internet got you covered, but not this Review! ;-)

    The Robot of the Day was a Hoot!
    Mads Mikkelsen's second Blockbuster this Year where he's completely wasted.
    The Action was awesome!
