Guns Akimbo 0

Guns Akimbo (2019)

I would have shot you in the dick, if the target wasn’t so small.   “Guns Akimbo” is too absurd for words. It’s absolute nonsense and you shouldn’t take it too seriously. It’s “over the top” pulp and looks as if it’s based on some Asian comic strip. But believe...

The Perfection 0

The Perfection (2018)

All that time with Anton, the practice, the performances, the pressure to be perfect.   Whenever I read newsflashes about films that make people suffer from migraine attacks and even make them sick, my curiosity is immediately awakened. The final verdict can go two ways. Or the film indeed has...

Uncut Gems 0

Uncut Gems (2019)

That’s a million dollar opal you are holding. Straight from the Ethiopian Jewish tribe.   Are you in the middle of a nasty divorce? Or are you at home on sick leave because of burnout due to your stressful job that demands too much from you? Or are those two...

Giant Little Ones 0

Giant Little Ones (2018)

It never would have happened if we weren’t wasted.   Just like in chemistry class at the start of the film, there’s a lot of intense experimenting among the youngsters in this movie. Especially sexually. However, when this experimenting turns out bad for Ballas (Darren Mann), he starts losing his...

The Professor 0

The Professor (2019)

What kind of cancer is it? It’s, uh, it’s lung cancer. You don’t smoke. No. I can now.   Let me start in a cheeky and derogatory tone. Let’s take Jack Sparrow, promote him to be an eloquent university professor teaching literature and tell him that he’s terminally ill. If...

Ready or Not 0

Ready or not (2019)

So, at midnight you have to play a game. It’s just something we do when someone new joins the family.   I have to revise my opinion about the horror/comedy cross-over urgently after seeing “Monster Party” and “The dead don’t die” this year. “Ready or not” is yet another film...

The Prodigy 0

The Prodigy (2019)

You took my son’s soul… you can’t have his body   Murderous children or those possessed by dark forces appear in horror movies on a regularly base. Sometimes it’s a diabolical power that possesses them. Damien from “The Omen” and Regan in “The Exorcist” are good examples. Or it’s the...

The Dead Don't Die 0

The dead don’t die (2019)

This isn’t gonna end well. Life is full of surprises. First of all, the location where I saw this film. I thought it was a unique experience. I watched “The dead don’t die” outdoors in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. And yes, this is something I don’t do too often....

The Professor and the Madman 0

The Professor and the Madman (2019)

If I am to fashion a book, I’ll need a spine. Sometimes you are awed by cinema films because of the immensely beautiful special effects and the use of unparalleled images. The other time it’s the inventiveness of a story and the way it’s structured. And in other films, you...

Hobbs & Shaw 0

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

I’m not working with this guy. I’ve been there, done that. The minute he gets involved, you can kiss goodbye to any finesse because She-Hulk here only knows how to smash. Yeah, Mr. Arson here only knows how to blow shit up. When I was at the cinema with my...

A dark Place 0

Quick review : A Dark Place (2018)

Getting the job done the easy way, is like running away from the problem. Because dealing with the problem is… It takes hard work.   I have a preference for the more unknown movies that are released weekly. The indie film world is lively and inexhaustible. The sad thing is...

Avengement 0

Avengement (2019)

So…prison turned you into a stone-cold killer, did it? Nah, prison didn’t. You and my brother did. I’ve just seen the Philippine revenge film “Maria” in which a beautiful woman beats up everyone she encounters. And before I know it, the next one presents itself already. This time it’s a...

The Outsider 0

The Outsider (2018)

When you dishonor your boss and you want to show remorse, you give your finger. It’s called otoshimae. I see you’ve got all your fingers. Even though I don’t have any affinity with Japanese culture as such and mostly ignore Asian films, I couldn’t resist giving “The Outsider”  a chance....

Zoo (2018)

Film Review : Zoo Come on, it’s just some big pharmaceutical company trying to cash in. Admit it, the zombie horror genre has been thoroughly milked in recent years. Last years the market is flooded with films in which a global epidemic causes the rise of a maddened mob of...

Ben is back (2018)

Film Review : Ben is Back Here’s the deal, and it is not negotiable. You get a day. Films about addictions and the destructive effect on family life and personal well-being. I have a hard time dealing with it. “Beautiful Boy” made a crushing impression on me recently. I was...

A Vigilante (2018)

Film Review : A Vigilante I’m looking out the window, and the trucks won’t stop coming. Anyone saw “John Doe: Vigilante“? No? I hope you’re not going to waste your time on that one. Just put that intention aside and watch the movie “A vigilante” instead. The latter is much...

The Mule (2018)

Film Review : The Mule Family’s the most important thing. Work’s fine, if it’s in second position. But first position should be family. “The Old Man & the Gun” might be the piece de résistance of Robert Redford. “The Mule” might be the grand finale in Clint Eastwood’s career. This...

T-34 (2018)

Film Review : T-34 I’ll give you another chance. You choose and prepare a Russian tank crew. On a designated day at the shooting range, you show your science, to my cadets. You won’t have ammunition. Just your skill. If you die … you die as a soldier on the...

Halloween (2018)

He’s no longer dormant. He only knows how to keep moving and to keep killing. And he will kill again unless he’s captured. Exactly 40 years ago the film “Halloween“, directed by John Carpenter, was released. A milestone in the slasher genre. It was in this film that Laurie Strode...

Incident in a Ghostland (2018)

Jesus Christ. It’s Rob Zombie’s house. They came up with the following slogans for “Hereditary“: “The scariest film ever” and “A highlight in horror in the last 50 years“. Well, I wonder what they would say about “Incident in a Ghostland“? I won’t say this is the most masterful horror...

The old man & the gun (2018)

Well, what do you do then? Well, that’s a secret. With “The Old Man & the Gun“, we probably say goodbye to a real film legend. According to some sources, Robert Redford wants to draw a line under his rich film career in a stylish way. In my opinion, he...

Cargo (2017)

We have no idea what it was that bit you. It had fingers, Andy! Fuck! If there’s one genre with so many releases that you get tired of it, it’s certainly the zombie genre. I’m sure this kind of movies is made on a daily basis. Movies in which infected...

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...

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...
