  • Knives Out

    Knives Out

    ★★★★

    Great script, great story. I really appreciate the director’s approach to this film from a slightly different angle. It also deals with a topic that we cannot find in today's films. I had a lot of fun watching this movie, it surprised me, it’s not predictable. The downside is that there are too many characters so not everyone can come to the fore.

  • mother!

    mother!

    ★★★★

    Definitely an unusual and special film. While some obvious allusions from the Bible are clear to me, I must admit that not all things from the film are completely understandable to me. I believe the director deliberately did the story in this way (he also wrote the script) to shock the viewer and make him think about what he just watched. The film is not going in the expected direction, and the pace is changing a lot, let's say that…

  • I Saw the Devil

    I Saw the Devil

    ★★★★

    Extremely bloody and brutal film, and I mean it literally and figuratively. The characters are tortured and killed in various physical ways, but the film also hits psychology hard. It’s not a typical one-way revenge movie. Definitely not for everyone. Maybe it takes a little too long, some scenes seem superfluous to me.

  • Vice

    Vice

    ★★★★

    An obvious director’s signature that is evident from his last film which I liked a lot. I also liked this one, even though this is a topic I don't know much about or find interesting, and that speaks to the quality of the film. A strange combination of genres and montage, someone probably won’t like it, but it was great for me. Aside from the great story and the way it is told, I have to single out the great work that Bale and Adams did in the lead roles.

  • Rob Roy

    Rob Roy

    ★★★★

    A 1995 film about Scottish history, but not Braveheart. Probably that's why the film went a little under the radar. The actors were really great, absolutely everyone did their part of the job. Liam Neeson is a great role model for many, who never puts small interests ahead of his word and honor and therefore even suffers great injustices. You just have to hate Tim Roth as a villain who is the complete opposite of the main protagonist, and that…

  • Being There

    Being There

    Forrest Gump before Forrest Gump. Before Hanks, Sellers embodied the character of Chanse, a mentally limited gardener who knew absolutely nothing about the outside world, but a combination of circumstances began his public and political rise. This is certainly a comedy in terms of subject matter, but it is by no means emphasized but subtle. We can say that this is both a satire and a critique of today's society, which has not changed much, considering that more than forty…

  • Con Air

    Con Air

    ★★★★

    Why do I have to watch this movie over and over again ?! What an acting team, what clichés, what colorful characters, what one liners!
    Review is unnecessary!


    He’s got the whole world, in His hand,
    He’s got the whole wide world, in His hand, He’s got the whole world, in His hand,
    He’s got the whole world, in His hand.

  • True Romance

    True Romance

    Great movie! Although it is directed by Tony Scott, Tarantino wrote the script and so you can see his handwriting in the film. And what about the movie? The main actors are C. Slater and P. Arquette on which I do not have a high opinion, but therefore other secondary actors are rockin! Just look at the list of actors for this movie. Almost every scene in the film is superbly made​​, the acting and dialog are priceless to me.…

  • Entourage

    Entourage

    First I have to say that I'm a big fan of this series. The series, to be honest is not perfect, it has its worse episodes and seasons (the last was not a particularly good). That's why I found the characters hilarious, Drama and Ari Gold are among the best characters in television history. That's why I find this movie difficult to assess as only the movie. These hour and 45 minutes watching as an extended episode that goes instead…

  • Cop Land

    Cop Land

    ★★★★

    Extremely important film if you ask me. First of all, it is a great film, I would even say that it is underestimated and insufficiently recognized.
    Another thing that has a good story, and is not some expensive film that relies on effects, explosions and a big shooting.
    The third thing is that he has an amazing cast, that alone is reason enough to recommend it.. Read who these actors are, to lick your fingers.
    Fourth, that in this whole…

  • Alien

    Alien

    ★★★★

    This was only the second film in the career of director Ridley Scott and he immediately managed to make one big and great SF. He teamed up with screenwriter Dan O’Bannon who had already collaborated with another great director at the beginning of his career. It was Carpenter and his first film Dark Star where you can see an idea that was to some extent transferred to the film Alien.

    Although this film is about an alien creature attacking humans…

  • Barça Dreams

    Barça Dreams

    ★★★★

    A very good documentary about the complete history of one of the best football clubs in history. Definitely a recommendation for all football fans, especially for Barcelona fans. We follow the history from the very beginning and the film touches on all the important moments, periods, players and coaches who left their mark in Barcelona. I have to admit I already knew a lot before, but it was still nice to see everything in one place and chronologically.
