Painless (2017)

Every once in a while, nature makes a mistake. The beginning explains a lot. First, footage of an adorable-looking 2-year-old, growing up and having one injury after the other. And again and again, you get this emotionless stare because he turns out to be numb to pain. In addition, there’s an increasingly desperate-looking mother. And […]

Thoroughbreds (2017)

First it was borderline personality,then severe depression, yesterday, she said it was antisocial with schizoid tendency. She’s basically just flipping to random pages of the DSM-5and throwing medications at me. But I have a perfectly healthy brain. It just doesn’t contain feelings. There are films that aren’t much of a story and still leave a […]

The night eats the World (2018)

The hardest part is… not knowing what’s happened to them. If there’s one horror genre that pops up ad nauseam, it’s that of zombies. Not a month goes by without a release in which undeath feast on innocent non-infected fellow humans. Since the cult film “Night of the Living Dead” by George A. Romero, a […]

Downsizing (2017)

I’m Dusan Mirkovic, your neighbor. Neighbors are friends. Friends tell friends the truth. Okay, maybe sometimes I’m a little bit asshole, but the world needs assholes. Otherwise where would shit go out. Are you expecting a movie such as “Honey, I shrunk the kids” or something similar to “Gulliver’s Travels” then you’re going to be […]

Euthanizer (2018)

Everyone has to pay for the pain that they’ve caused. Pain needs to be balanced. Armomurhaaja (original title) Every detail was just perfect in this Finnish low-budget indie. From the first second this film intrigued me and managed to hold my full attention. Not only the magnificent acting of Matti Onnismaa and Hannamaija Nikander, as […]

Rampage (2018)

Hunting Emma (2017)

Geweld kweek geweld. Ek wil ’n ou hê wat die ander wang kan draai. ’n Gentle ou. Punt. Quote from Channel 24 : “Jagveld”. The local skop, skiet and donner flick. It’s quite obvious that I’d compare this one with the movie “Revenge“, which I’ve seen recently. Both films take place in a searingly hot […]

Revenge (2017)

Even for your tiny little oyster brain, it shouldn’t be too difficult to understand. So, I’ll ask you again. Did my height change since yesterday ? I was watching “Revenge” already for a while and I was still wondering who played Richard. I was stunned when I found out it’s Kevin Janssens. He appeared on […]

Just say goodbye (2017)

My opinion on “Just say goodbye” “That was the first of hundreds of conversations between us. Most came easy. And some a little harder. And one would change my life forever” It’s not necessary to have a bunch of overwhelming special effects to make a great film. Or well-paid world-famous movie stars to embellish the […]

Please stand by (2017)

“Like Spock, for example. He’s half-human, half-alien. He has trouble dealing with his emotions. Where did it say that? That’s just how he is.” Although “Please stand by” is a fairly predictable film and unrestrainedly endeavors to strike a sensitive nerve, I’m all for such a type of film. The number of films about individuals […]

Annihilation (2018)

“Blackwater National Park reported that a lighthouse was surrounded by something they termed “a shimmer.” One of the wardens went in to investigate. Never returned.” Let me get right to the point. “Annihilation” isn’t exactly an easy SF. This horrifying SciFi can join the group of “the more intellectual looking SF films” where “Arrival” can […]

Marrowbone (2017)

Once you cross that line, there’ll be no memories. Our story begins here. Do you like a decent ghost story? And does the subject of a traumatizing experience that affects the human psyche of an individual, stimulate your curiosity? I guess “Marrowbone” is a suitable film for you. Don’t let the label horror scare you, […]

Entanglement (2017)

“You’re riding a girl’s bike! It’s UNISEX!” Initially, I thought I would be presented with yet another rom-com. In retrospect “Entanglement” is a kind of romantic comedy. But in a bizarre way. This felt like an outsider of all romantic comedies. The beginning isn’t exactly a comical theme. But strangely enough, it’s hilarious when you […]
