Artemis Fowl 0

Artemis Fowl (2020)

Who do you think you are? I’m the next criminal mastermind.   I’m afraid you need to be as intelligent as “Artemis Fowl” to understand and keep up with this movie. What a confusing chaos this was. I get it that they are looking for a sort of Harry Potter...

Jumanji : The Next Level (2019)

If you touch my boobs, I will murder you! Too late! That was the first thing I did.   In recent years, the terms “Remake” and “Reboot” have become very popular in Hollywood. Much to my annoyance. In most cases, these knockoffs are just a shadow of the original. Not...

IO 0

IO (2019)

Sam, we have to leave this place. Sooner or later you’ll have to.   “IO” will certainly be an orgasmic experience for global environmentalists and defeatists. Supporters of global protest movements about global warming and the destruction of our balanced eco-system will certainly use this film as an example to...

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...

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...

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...

The man who killed Hitler and then the Bigfoot (2018)

That day, I just killed a man. What he stood for was unstoppable. The absurd title alone should stimulate your curiosity. A film with such a whopper of a title (sounding completely absurd) can only lead to an unrivaled experience. My first reaction was: “Only Monty Python can come up...

Flora (2017)

Rudyard, there are no people living in this forest. Do you see any animals? There’s no flora with any color, nothing to allure insects! Are you someone who prefers to spend his free time in his perfectly tended garden? Is your lawn as if a delegation from the International Golf...

A wrinkle in Time (2018)

To utilize a tesseract… all you need is to tap into the right frequency. You just need your mind. I’ve never tried L.S.D. in my life. But while watching this confusing and psychedelic-looking movie, I thought my wife used some exotic spices in my dinner I’d just eaten. After a...

Pacific Rim : Uprising (2018)

It does not matter who your parents are, where you came from, who believed in you and who didn’t. We are a family now, and we are earth’s last defense. What amazed me the most was the fact that I couldn’t remember much of “Pacific Rim“, even though I thought...

Avengers : Infinity War (2018)

Smile. For even in death, you have become Children of Thanos. Me and superheroes. We have a kind of love-hate relationship. One moment I’m really enjoying the character or the story. At that time jealousy bubbles up and I wished I had those specific powers in my daily life. And...

How it ends (2018)

I only have one question for you. Are you coming with me? “How it ends.“. Well, I’ve never seen a movie title that sounded so ambiguous afterward. They should have replaced the period with a question mark. Even though I was very enthusiastic in the beginning. Once again a film...

Tomb Raider (2018)

My opinion on “Tomb Raider” “Vogel can’t find the tomb without me, and since I’m dead and… since you’ve burned the rest of my research, he will never find it.” I was actually looking forward to watching this new version of “Tomb Raider“. Not only because I had a lot...

Renegades 0

Renegades (2017)

“Can you imagine what that gold could do to help my people? Will you help me get it?” There are films you can compare with a richly filled five-course dinner. First, they spoil you with a tasty opener. After which a well-filled middle piece is offered. And then as an...

Jumanji : Welcome to the jungle 0

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017)

“I think we got, like, sucked into the game. And we’ve become the avatars that we chose.” I was sure about one thing. A remake of “Jumanji” is the same as repainting the Mona Lisa and exhibiting this copy. Ridiculous, inglorious, and unnecessary. I was afraid this movie would be...

The Shape of Water 2

The shape of water (2017)

“The natives in the Amazon worshipped it. Like a god. We need to take it apart, learn how it works.” I’ve watched this movie the night before the Oscar ceremony because I could feel it in my bones this film would possibly win that coveted statuette. Initially, I didn’t want...

Cold Skin 4

Cold Skin (2017)
