    Perception and deception - the development of the Self

    In the following, I will discuss the events of the movie, which will contain a lot of spoilers.

    How do we perceive beauty? We so often view it as a physical thing. Normally beauty is part of the subjectivity of the perceiver but every so often you can see it as an objective feature like color for example, which nonetheless needs to be perceived. So what do we mean by beauty? …

    ★★★★

    Obviously I don’t want to spoil anything of the film, but at the same time, I really want to explain my experience with Saint Maud in more detail. Horror, especially psychological horror, is one of my favorite genres and has earned its special place in my heart during my teenage years. I could never really grasp the idea of what it was, that scared me so much, only when I discovered the one thing, that was certain of pulling me…

    - Extreme Job -
    Picked by David Ch

    It is always a pleasure to watch some movies that aren’t a typical US product. Unfortunately, when it comes to Extreme Job, it felt more like an Americanized movie, at least when it comes to humor. Whilst the idea of the movie is worthy, it runs out of steam halfway through.

    Overall, it is a decent watch, but nothing that stands out. Maybe the subtitles are the problem, because…

  • Earthquake Bird

    Earthquake Bird

    ★½

    A movie about Alicia Vikander, who mainly speaks Japanese in this and Riley Keough, filmed in beautiful Japan? What sounded like really auspicious 100 minutes, turned into a disaster sooner than I expected. 

    The whole set up was weird and unusual, simply because you’ll get immediately thrown into things without a real introduction and characterization. Hence I had a massive problem with taking this movie serious in the beginning. The film was jumping from one scene to another with locations…

    Confessions

    ★½

    I don’t even know how to start this review and where to begin with all the issues I had with it. Firstly, despite some obvious flaws I enjoyed the first 30 minutes a lot. But from there on it went downhill real quick. Within the first hour most of the plot is revealed in a monotonous confession by the teacher which takes away most of the tension from the following plot. The whole movie literally mocks with mothers, children, teachers…

    The Devil All the Time

    ★★★★

    “Some people were born just so they could be buried.”

    From the start, you will realize that it will be a long movie, with already being more than two hours long. It’s a slow burn movie with a great story and definitely great acting. It’s carried by a terrific, absolutely perfect casting. Tom Holland is undoubtedly the biggest surprise by delivering a part of him that no one had seen before. His character’s personality is shaped based on his traumatic…
