9/10 … The director’s chair is divided between several directors, but most prominent is M. Night Shyamalan. He seems to be one of those directors that gets to take a lot of shit, and I have no idea why. He made several awesome movies like The Sixth Sense (1999), Signs (2002), The Village (2004) and The Visit (2005) and here he strikes again, directing 3 episodes. Personally, I like his work and will continue to follow it….
10/10 … This is one of those perfect movies, you know the ones that you wouldn’t change a second, the ones that you put on to have in the background but after 2 minutes you sit there glowed to the screen.
The movie is an fantastic mix of action, adventure, comedy, drama and romance. The story is uniquely told in flashback as Jamal must reveal how he knew the Who wants to be a millionaire show’s answers. For instance, he knew who was on a U.S. hundred-dollar bill from when he was stealing from tourists and posing as a phony tour guide. The story of Jamal, his brother and Latika is so engaging that even the police chief questioning him wants to know what happens next in the story…..
7/10 … I loved the movie “The Invisible Man” (10/10) that you can read a full review of here, but I probably shouldn’t review soundtracks, since I listen to them in the same way I listen to Dark Ambient. I want to be able to just close my eyes and that the soundscape takes me on a journey of darkness and apocalypse. I don’t want to see the movie the soundtrack was made for in front of me, but my visions. With that said, this is hauntingly beautiful. I can’t say it gives me any “dark visions”, but simply beautiful. Track 1 & 2 have some distorted parts I could have done without. Track 7, “Attack”, is just that … a full on attack of distortion from the start and that works for me better than the previous early tracks.
5/10 … So seven university students travels to a summerhouse for some vacation. When they arrive in the small village we ofcourse get the generic wierd, dirty service store clerk, and I feel I’m already losing interest. But okey, lets continue, maybe we get some good effects and some nudity. But no, not even that. More or less just red colored water and apperent CGI sharks. So some nudity then? Not that either, just a quick side boob. A pretty good jump attack by a shark though.
5/10 … I love me a good Giallo, but I have to be honest, I usually lose interest half way through, and unfortunatly this is the case here as well. It’s beautifully shot during autumn in Venezia, Italy in those lovely 1970’s dark colours. It has those Argento-esque child choirs, some nudity, but more or less blood free.
Unfortunately it has one of my pet peeves in older horror movies, when a killer attack someone, the victim does nothing to fight back. Just presses themselves against the wall, screaming. I mean, a retarded penguin have more survival skills than these people. It’s also filled with nonsense, like strangling someone in a movie theater without anyone noticing. No kicking and screaming, just lets herself get strangled.
This book came out in 2010, and are now long out-of-print. You will have to sell your sibling to get the money for it second hand … or at least pony-up about $100 for it. Okey, your sibling might have a higher (or lower) value than that, but you get the point. Further down on […]
John Saxon, my all-time favourite ”not leading role” actor passed away on July 25 in pneumonia in Murfreesboro, Tennessee at the age of 83. The news really struck me hard since he has been with me since I watched ”Nightmare on Elm Street” for the first time. He’s extremely charismatic and I don’t know why […]
I have no idea why Netflix makes it so hard to browse the different genres on their site. I started to look into it when it wanted to find movies from smaller countries in South America or the Middle-East but couldn’t in any easy way. Netflix will only recommend specific movies and genres if you’ve […]
8/10 … I love this movie, when it comes to virus movies I think it’s only beaten by Contagion from 2011 for me. It has a very “real” atmosphere and I actually think it would go down this way in a real life senario…….
7/10 … I have to admit, I’m really not a big Chuck Norris fan. I think his fighting style compared to for example Bruce Lee looks cluncky and also for him being a nutjob christian. With that said, this one I like a lot in all it’s “Cannon Film-ines”…..
8,5/10 … Season 3 was just released and I couldn’t wait to watch it as soon as possible. I went out and bought some steakes and beers to be fully prepared. And it didn’t disappoint. Jason Bateman as Marty Byrde, the money laundryguy for the Mexican cartell and his wife Wendy played by Laura Linney are still just a pleasure to see everytime they’re on screen. Jason Bateman plays his character really calm and relaxed. Nothing ever seems to make him …
8/10 … It all starts with an opening scene with tribal people sacrificing a young western girl, when the military come to her aid (too late). It’s apparent that they were not shot at the same time. The tribal part where it’s night time and when the soldiers sneak around the jungle it’s daytime. This is followed by …
6/10 … I asked on a movie forum if anyone had some recomendation about movies with weirdos living inside the walls in other peoples houses or similar. I got recommended this one. Don’t know how I missed this one , it has my favourite creepy guy Klaus Kinski in the lead. And sure he is creepy here, proberly the creepiest I have ever seen him, just wonderful! It has a made-for-TV feeling, and I can’t find any information if it was ever released on the big screen. Although there are real bonkers stuff in thi….
10/10 … Faith in movies restored!!! After seing several 5-6/10 movies the last couple of weeks I begun to fear that I had lost my passion for movies (this have happened before). But holy crap this changed my mind and really took me by surprise, what a masterpiece. From the first minute til the end it keeps up the suspense and you’re emotional invested in Elisabeth Moss character Cecilias fate ….
8/10 … I liked the first season, the love interest Beck (Elizabeth Lail) is very charming and plays the slightly neurotic girlfriend just great. I enjoy the concept of the show but wished it would have been more decadent and Joe (Penn Badgley) even more depraved.
Season two is even better in my opinion, more or less all characters are very likeable and we get more twists and turns. The focus of his attention this time, Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti) and her brother Forty Quinn (James Scully) are simply awesome. …
