Grand Isle 0

Grand Isle (2019)

Go ahead and take her. She’s all yours. But I’ll tell you this. She got a dark side… Darker than hell.   I admire the phenomenon called Nicolas Cage enormously. Every film with him (and nowadays it’s a lot every year) is a mandatory watch for me. I really can’t...

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...

Cold Blood Legacy 0

Cold Blood Legacy (2019)

I had a stand-off with a wolf earlier, and he has tasted human blood… yours.   Jean Reno. The ever-calm actor is usually associated with roles such as a police detective, a gangster or an assassin. The quiet-looking Frenchman has a specific appearance that fits perfectly with such roles. Strange...

Let it Snow (2019)

Snow can make a difference! Especially on Christmas Eve. And sometimes it’s not just the eve of Christmas, it’s the eve of everything, of the rest of your life. Christmas. The period everyone is jolly again. Family reunions. A brown-baked turkey with a tasty filling that was squeezed through its...

The Boonies 0

The Boonies (2019)

“The Boonies“. You would think it’s a parody of “The Goonies“. Partially it is. Here it’s also about a hidden treasure (a briefcase with $ 1,164,000) which Doug (Calum Worthy) has hidden somewhere at “Boone High School”. A kind of quest devised by him after he died in a terrible...

The curse of La Llorona 0

The Curse of La Llorona (2019)

You used him as bait? No. I used you all as bait.   When I visited Eurodisney near Paris for the first time years ago (it seems like centuries ago), I was so overwhelmed and enchanted by the atmosphere and everything there was to admire. I literally hovered through this...

Little Monsters 0

Little Monsters (2019)

Can we play the shooty game,Uncle David? I don’t want us to get in trouble, Felix. We’ll have to play it with the sound off.   Well, there’s always the award “Disappointment of the year”. I’m afraid this year the film “Little Monsters” will take the credits for this. I...

Los Parecidos 0

Quick review : Los Parecidos (2015)

Uh, I’m not entirely sure what I just watched, but it wasn’t horror for sure. A kind of “X-files” story that takes place in Mexico. And they gave it a typical retro look from the 50’s/60’s. The story itself is completely nuts, psychic and totally whacked. I don’t think it’s...

12 Feet Deep 0

12 Feet Deep (2017)

Are you dense? Everyone’s left. The pool’s closed for the holiday weekend. We’re stuck in here. We’re gonna die in here. I hope this isn’t going to be a new trend, otherwise more movies of this type will appear in the future. Like, “For a Few Degrees More.” with a...

Maria 0

Maria (2019)

Film Review : Maria She’s still alive. Who’s she? Lily. Lily’s still alive! John Wick had a good reason to make things difficult for his former boss. They liquidated his cute dog and stole his car. In the movie “Polar“, Duncan Vizla’s retirement savings were compromised. In this Filipino revenge...

High Life 0

High Life (2018)

I fear, Willow. I could drown like a kitten. It would have been easy. First you, then me. The film “High Life” is just as meaningful as the expedition for which those sentenced to death have registered voluntarily. Not very meaningful. I do understand why they have chosen for it....

Captive State (2019)

Light a match. Ignite a war. When I saw the trailer of “Captive State” for the first time, I was immediately overenthusiastic. It seemed like a suspenseful and action-rich Science Fiction about extraterrestrial dominance and their reign. I already imagined myself a kind of movie as “Independence Day” or “War...

A.I. Rising (2018)

Film Review : A.I. Rising I was always wondering whether I was able to create life. It seems that I am. Take any porn movie and you can be sure there’ll be some plumber who not only tries to repair the drain but also will examine the installation of the...

What keeps you Alive (2018)

Film Review : What keeps you Alive She fell off a cliff. 911, my wife, she fell off a cliff. Oh, my God! Please help me. Some marriages fail because married people come to realize that their interests are different or because there are too many contradictions that lead to...

Dead in the water (2018)

Kill me. Kill yourselves. End this. Although the opening scene with the “Amphitrite” (a kind of fishing boat) traveling across the ocean looked really cheap in terms of “special effects”, the rest of the film wasn’t so bad. The ocean scene really looked as if it was a toy boat...

Charismata (2017)

Even if you never had to learn police work like the rest of us plebs, anybody with a TV knows that it takes three bodies to make a serial killer. You know what I’m saying, you’re just being pedantic. Take the brilliant movie “Se7en” and replace the two inspectors Somerset...

Mermaid’s song (2018)

Her story begins where the fairy tale ends. I suppose this movie was inspired by the well-known fairy tale “The Little Mermaid” by Christian-Andersen. Now, if you were an attentive reader, you’d noticed that this little sea-dweller was explicitly present throughout the whole story. If this film is a kind...

Superfly (2018)

God is great. God is powerful, yeah. But even more so, God is all-knowing. And that is what makes him scary as shit. Do you understand what I’m saying? This remake of the movie “Super Fly” from the 70s, with Ron O’Neal as Priest, isn’t really my favorite kind of...

The house with a clock in its walls (2018)

You can eat cookies till you throw up, for all I care. You’ll see… things are…quite different here. Have you seen “Goosebumps” where Jack Black plays the leading role as well? Well, you can expect almost the same thing. A kids-sized horror film. And I had the same feelings about...

He’s out there (2018)

Daddy can see us…when he gets here. But he’s already here. Do you fancy a movie along the lines of “Hush” but with people who aren’t mute? In short, a film in which there’s a lot of screaming. And should there be co-stars who are simply mown down with a...

The Meg (2018)

Jonas said something attacked them. Something big enough to destroy a new submarine. I’m happy I’ve watched this movie on the big screen. On the silver screen, the Megalodon (hence the title “The Meg“) was even more impressive. But that’s the only thing that can be said about this film....

Mara (2018)

Whatever you do, do NOT sleep! Having problems falling asleep at night? Are you tossing and turning in bed all night? Or are frightening nightmares disturbing your well-deserved sleep? Well, in that case, I advise you not to watch “Mara“, because it could possibly get worse. Now, I myself have...

Traffik (2018)

It’s a satellite phone. How did this get in my purse? While looking at the film poster, the first thing I thought was: “Wow, Halle Berry has a thing for films about kidnapping”. First, there was “The Call“. And then at the beginning of the year, I saw “Kidnap“. And...

The Hollow Child (2017)

Run before it turns everyone against you. The reason why I try to avoid seeing trailers is twofold. Or they are so revealing that you actually saw the film in advance. Either the trailer is inviting and arouses your curiosity, but afterward, you come to the conclusion they better limited...
