    Death Note

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This was a ... traumatizing experience. Is as if someone looked at the Death Note anime, asked themselves what made that show great - and then removed every single bit of it. The dynamic between ... well, any characters - gone. The emotionless coolness of L - gone. The creativity of Light - gone. Usually, I like romance subplots, but, again, Misa as a character in the Anime served a completely different function, and Mia in this movie is pretty…

    C3PO and R2D2's adventures is a movie that tells the story of two robots and their significant role in saving the world. Chock-full of charme, this movie (that started an insane franchise) manages to create a universe full of unique races and species, characters with lots of personality (and also, Luke) and a world that just feels vivid and living. Feeling a bit more lighthearted throughout than people give it credit for, it's simply entertaining.
    On the topic of lightheartedness…

    ★★★★

    I always love the kind of movie that has several smaller storylines all connect into one puzzle piece over the course of the film, and this one is no exception. Jason Statham, as always, simply delivers, the humor is british, while not being over the top or unfitting. Very entertaining movie.

    Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead

    There's not a single merit to this. Not a single one. It doesn't display a rating when you don't specify one, and you can't specify 0 stars. But giving this one even half a star would be way too big a favor for this.

  • Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

    Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

    ★★★★½

    Great comedy. Big props for getting actual NASCAR commentators, and heck, even Dale Jr. himself to show up. Generally also doesn't really portrait the sport as anything it isn't - except obviously the comic exaggarations and stuff that made sense for the story. (And the strange downshifting in the middle of a Super Speedway.) Story itself might not be something super special, but does it really need to? Very enteratining movie throughout.

    That was one wild ride. Very cute Godzilla at times.

    Probably my favorite movie. Amazing tension, amazing storytelling, impeccable acting.

  • First Blood

    First Blood

    Very odd take on the morality of war and the resulting mental health issues. Just one death, funnily enough.

    Great road movie of a black man in the 60s touring the South.

    Great slapstick, funny jokes.

    ★½

    Disappointing movie. Weak lead character with (subjectively) inconsistent moral troubles. Scene in the house was awkward and confusing in all the wrong ways. Final fight was dissappointing after a buildup that made no sense (how do the Germans take 10ish minutes for like 500 yards?).

  • Gone in 60 Seconds

    Gone in 60 Seconds

    One of the most amazing car chase scenes in film history. 45 minutes of a beautiful Mach 1 Mustang jumping, drifting and hooning around.
