• Hereditary

    Hereditary

    ★★★½

    "I am not sleepwalking anymore."

    Yeah, I mean, it's pretty good. Also, you know, not so long ago I literally couldn't watch horror films, but I feel like I'm doing a pretty good job in overcoming this genre barrier XD The Shining, now this one. Maybe more to come. We'll see.

    Anyway, Hereditary is a horror film which tells the story of the Grahams, a family with a toxic habit to repress their problems instead of confronting them. After the…

  • Paths of Glory

    Paths of Glory

    ★★★★

    "-They have skimmed milk in their veins instead of blood.
    -Then it's the reddest milk I've ever seen. My trenches are soaked with that red skimmed milk."

    Well, Kubrick didn't disappoint here either.

    Paths of Glory is a war film (directed by Stanley Kubrick, as I mentioned above) which takes place in 1916, WWI. It follows the battle of a colonel in the French army against the corrupted morals of the higher-ups in the commanding chain, as he tries to…

  • WALL·E

    WALL·E

    ★★★½

    WALL-E is one of those movies that I watched several times as a kid and really liked, but haven't rewatched in quite a while. So, that was nice. And what do you know, this movie is still pretty good :)

    WALL-E follows a cleaning robot that stayed on Earth to clean after humanity (which left to a long, long cruise on space 700 hundred years ago). As he encounters a new robot and quite immidiately falls for her we see…

  • Spider-Man: No Way Home

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★

    Okay, this one's a bit hard to talk about without spoiling anything, but I'll do my best and see how it works out. (Don't worry btw, if it isn't marked a spoiler review rest assured that there are no spoilers.)

    Anyway, with this film you may say that the hype is through the roof. It had one of the highest-grossing openings of all time, it got by the first week of its release to the top 10 of IMDb, and…

  • The Shining

    The Shining

    ★★★★½

    "I'm sorry to differ with you sir, but *you*...are the caretaker. You've always been the caretaker. I should know, sir. I've *always* been here."

    The Shining just became my favorite Kubrick film up to this date, and one of my favorite films in general.

    The film (which is based on a Stephen King novel) follows a family who moves into an isolated hotel for the winter (as the caretakers of the hotel for the season). As time goes on, they…

  • Avengers: Endgame

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★

    *WARNING: though this review doesn't contain any Endgame spoiler, it does contain some major spoilers to Infinity War. And anyway, if you haven't seen Infinity War yet you shouldn't watch Endgame, so yeah*

    So, Endgame picks up more or less where Infinity War left off - the world in pieces, half the population is gone, Thanos has finally won and everyone feel helpless. Yet, as a sign of hope shows to change the outcome of Infinity War, the Avengers gather…

  • Avengers: Infinity War

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★

    Avengers: Infinity War. To call the thing that surrounded this film "hype" would be an understatement. The world went nuts. Marvel have built this huge cinematic universe, and Infinity War was the climax (or maybe the beginning of it, considering Endgame), but anyway, yeah. It was a huge success, people love it, everybody talked about it, even people who haven't seen all the previous Marvel movies have tried to watch it (btw, this is a good time to say: DON'T…

  • Sunset Boulevard

    Sunset Boulevard

    ★★★★

    "You see, this is my life! It always will be!
    There's nothing else. Just us, and the cameras, and those wonderful people out there in the dark."

    Sunset Boulevard is a film with such a strong statement that it horrified many people that were offered to work on it. It criticizes Hollywood in a very strong way, a way that leaves an impact on the viewer.

    To give you a general idea of the plot: it follows Joe Gillis, a…

  • Witness for the Prosecution

    Witness for the Prosecution

    ★★★★

    Witness for the Prosecution is a courtroom drama (with a decent amount of subtle comedy as well, tbh) that follows Sir Willfrid Robarts, a Brisith barrister, as he takes on a murder case despite being told by his doctor to stay away from "over-exciting" cases, due to a recent heart-attack Robarts had. Btw, this film is based on a play written by Agatha Christie, so, yeah, that's cool.

    I honestly don't think that there's a single thing that I truly…

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★½

    The first Marvel movie I review, I think! Let's go!

    Anyway, Spider Man: Into the Spider-Verse is an animated Spider-Man film that follows Miles Morales, a high-schooler from Brooklyn, as he gets bitten by a Spider and receives some weird super powers...yeah, you know how it is. While trying to master his new powers he has to stop Kingpin from destroying the entire city, with the help of some other Spider-people that were sucked from their universe ("dimension") to this…

  • Princess Mononoke

    Princess Mononoke

    ★★★★

    "Can nothing be done? To simply wait for death..."

    Princess Mononoke is the kind of film that sounds like a cool metaphor with an important message, but turns out to be much more when you dive deep into it.

    This movie tells the story of Ashitaka, a young warrior from a small eastern village. While defending his village from a mad demon-god, Ashitaka got cursed, and he has to travel far to the west in order to lift the curse,…

  • Oldboy

    Oldboy

    ★★★★

    John Wick, but so much better (sorry, had to say it XD).

    Oldboy is a manga-based South Korean thriller, that tells the story of Oh-Dae-Su (meaning "just trying to get through the day"), a pretty normal buisness man who gets kidnapped one rainy day without any context. Not knowing who or why, he spends 15 harsh years imprisoned, until one day he's set free - again, not knowing anything. He tries to find out the who and why, and that's…
