Colewell 0

Colewell (2019)

The thing about getting older is looking back, it doesn’t matter how old you are, life always feels the same length. Like both forever and not very long.   You’ve just seen “Uncut Gems” and you feel the nerves raging through your body after watching this ultra-nervous film? Well, I...

The Sonata 0

The Sonata (2018)

Rose, you do know if this is your father’s final work, it could be a huge sensation. Yes, well, that much had occurred to me. And if this score was more important to him than I was, I’d like to know why.   Do you like a dash of classical...

Ad Astra 0

Ad Astra (2019)

Colonel, for what it means, I think my father is dead.   I can fully understand that when you haven’t heard from a friend who lives a few blocks away for a long time, you get prepped and plan a visit to the person in question. Just like that. Just...

Primal 0

Primal (2019)

I just spent ten months in the jungle, and this all smells like cat shit to me.   Films where animals mess with the protagonists’ life. There are a lot of those movies. Only recently you could see in “Crawl” how alligators tried to outwit a father and daughter with...

Child's Play 0

Child’s Play (2019)

What’s your name? Andy. ‘Sup? Hi, Andysup. It seems like a lifetime ago since I saw the original film with the demonic pop Chucky dangerously swinging around with a razor-sharp butcher knife. Well, It’s not a hundred years, but thirty years is a long time as well. That’s how long...

Eli 0

Eli (2018)

Do you know what happened to the boy who asked too many questions? He got answers?   “Eli” is a horror you can watch on Netflix and it’s not bad at all. But it takes a long time before the conclusion in the story surprises you completely. The introductory part...

Low Tide 0

Low Tide (2019)

Eight, nine, ten. A thousand. You boys find any more coins, give me a holler. Once and a while I like to watch a well-made coming-of-age movie. Such a film about juvenile innocence in which a radical event shakes the pleasant life of one or more young people. A life...

Asher 0

Asher (2018)

I just killed a man in the bathroom, and I’m afraid if we don’t leave right now, they’re gonna call the cops. Hmm. So it’s true. What’s that? Men will say anything for sex. A hitman who, by chance, encounters a lovely dance teacher and realizes that it’s time to...

John Wick Chapter 3 0

Quick review : John Wick Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019)

The first part of the “John Wick” saga could be called sparkling fresh and original. I didn’t mind the fact that the brain of a goldfish was sufficient enough to watch and enjoy this film. The screen is being filled up constantly with action-packed footage and Keanu Reeves whirled through...

Charlie Says 1

Charlie Says (2018)

When I first met Charlie, I just knew. Hopped on a bus and I never looked back. Charles Manson seems to be a hot topic this year. Not only there’s the Tarantino movie “Once upon a time … in Hollywood” in which the Manson Family plays a prominent role, but...

Greta 0

Greta (2018)

I have been in this well of loneliness, this black hole. Maybe it drove me a little mad. We were meant for love, Frances, not this terrible isolation. If you see the film “Greta” pass by on your favorite streaming platform or on some VOD network service, it’s certainly not...

Harmony 0

Harmony (2018)

Even in love, there’s fear. You can’t have one without the other. Do you know that feeling when you drove with your bike somewhere, look surprised at a road map and realize you don’t have any idea where you were? Or that time when you were looking at the blackboard...

Pet Sematary 0

Pet Sematary (2019)

A place to bury our pets and remember them. It might seem scary, but it’s not. It’s perfectly natural. In the distant past, I was an avid reader and devoured books constantly. That has been considerably reduced over the years. But, occasionally I grab a reading book. Generally, that only...

Alita : Battle Angel 2

Alita : Battle Angel (2019)

While I’m learning name, do you have one for me? Alita. It’s a nice name. I love it! I was really looking forward to this movie “Alita: Battle Angel“. A cyber-punk setting and unparalleled computerized images that are perfectly injected into a real-life environment. Of course, you know Alita (Rosa...

Rockaway 0

Quick review : Rockaway (2017)

Don’t worry. I’ll protect you. Who will protect you? “Rockaway” is an uncomplicated low-budget coming-of-age story that focuses on child abuse and a plan to escape from it. In general, it’s not such a bad movie. It doesn’t pretend to be any better than an average television film. A kind...

Ánimas 0

Ánimas (2018)

When you’re five, it’s normal to have imaginary friends… But at my age, it means you’re crazy. “Ánimas” certainly isn’t an easy film. It also takes a while before you realize what’s actually going on. The film looks enormously artistic thanks to the quirky image setting. Scenes in different color...

Escape Room (2019)

Film Review : Escape Room Be the first to escape our most immersive rooms yet and win $10,000. Does coincidence exist? I’m starting to believe it. Coincidentally, I had just seen this movie and a few days later my wife receives a birthday present from her brother. An entrance ticket...

Destroyer (2018)

Film Review : Destroyer What’s up? Silas is back. Obviously, the most striking element of this film is the transformation of Nicole Kidman. Her weathered, unkempt appearance with black-rimmed eyes, smudged skin, and a tousled haircut indicate an unhealthy lifestyle and a stubborn addiction. It soon becomes clear that the...

Velvet Buzzsaw (2019)

Critique is so limiting and emotionally draining. I’ve always wanted to do something long-form, beyond opinion. Dip my toe into an exploration of origin and essence. A metamorphosis of spirit into reality. I’ve… I’ve never had the vehicle until now. Regularly I’m asked to watch a low-budget film and to...

Short Feature : The Babysitter (2017)

Regularly they ask me if I could watch an independent movie and write something about it so that it gets some extra attention. I got an email from Greg Klepper, maker of the short film “The Babysitter“, with a rather poignant message. Apparently, this film was shunned by the festival...

Boar (2017)

Either I’m pissed off my chest mate, or that’s the biggest fucking boar I’ve ever seen. In 1955 we had a giant octopus in “It came from beneath the Sea” and last year we had the giant shark in “The Meg“. And in between, we were treated to a manifold...

I still see you (2018)

The Event took people we cared about, but it also left a part of them behind. Remnants. When I saw “Shovel Buddies” a while ago, I decided to add the item “Watch movies with Bella Thorne playing in it” to my to-do list. Now, I have a large number of...

Await Further Instructions (2018)

I don’t think the messages are a government broadcast. It’s almost like they’re reacting to what we do. Initially, I would immediately add “Await further instructions” to the list of “useless movies that only ensure that you don’t start running into the walls out of boredom”. But on the other...
