Pyewacket (2017)

I call upon you, brought by leaves and seeds. Hear with my ears and speak with my tongue. I invite you to come. Pyewacket. If you’ve already read one of my reviews, you’d know I enjoy a low-budget, independent film occasionally. A film where you already know in advance that the special effects won’t be mindblowing. And also, mostly unknown...

What still remains (2018)

Dreams give us hope. And if we don’t have hope, then what’s the point in living? After reading the synopsis of this movie, your reaction will probably be the same as mine at that time. “Jesus, not again another post-apocalyptic film in which the world’s population has been decimated to a handful of survivors, while the earth’s surface is plagued...

Quick review : The Commuter (2018)

You work hard, you play by the rules, you’re a good soldier, and you don’t deserve it. But the reality is sometimes soldiers end up casualties. Do you want to know what I still remember from “The Commuter“? Well, actually it’s not that much anymore. It’s that kind of movie. Only the opening scene where you see Michael MacCauley (Liam...

Submergence (2017)

Our world is firstly about power, it’s only secondly about education. A calm movie from time to time is something I welcome. Not again such a flashy, action-packed hero film where you’ll get nervous because the scenes follow each other in a rapid pace and stroboscopic effects get you a cutting headache. “Submergence” undoubtedly belongs to the first category. So,...

Death Wish (2018)

My opinion on “Death Wish” “We’ll get you set up with your FOID application right here today. State Police send it pretty quick. And then you’ll just have to take a gun safety class, but don’t worry, no one ever fails. You can do that anytime within 30 days of the time period you’re waiting for your city permit. And...

Rebirth (2016)

My opinion on “Rebirth” Hey, you still have the Manifesto? The what? The Manifesto, man. Don’t tell me you threw it away. “Rebirth” is a psychological thriller of the Netflix collection. I certainly won’t deny that I have become a fervent supporter of the Netflix Originals series. I’ve seen already some great movies (“Spectral“, “iBoy“, “Before I Wake” and “Message...

Walking Out (2017)

My opinion on “Walking Out” “I’ll put myself between you and any bear. I promise.” “Walking out” is a story about a father and son who experience their annual get-together again and try to strengthen the wafer-thin bond that still exists between them. In addition, it’s also a story about survival in the wild nature. The well-known story of man...

Mute 0

Mute (2018)

“Why the hell can’t he talk anyway? It’s complicated. It’s his mother’s fault. He needs surgery. It’s against her beliefs.” Fortunately, Alexander Skarsgård isn’t by nature a voiceless person. It would have been a strange sight him appearing in “The Legend of Tarzan“. Swinging around with his mouth wide open. But no sound that cuts through the jungle so everyone...

The Ritual 0

The Ritual (2017)

“He was a good man. The best of us. It should never have happened. But it did… And all we can do is remember him. Robert, we miss you, mate.” “The Ritual” is a British horror that takes place in a Swedish forest where four friends go on a hike in honor of a deceased friend. After seeing so many...

Braven 0

Braven (2018)

You know if you give the other half, we’re as good as dead. I’ve read an article somewhere titled: “10 Reasons why you should watch Braven“. I agreed with a few points. You could say the movie is a retrospective of action films from the 90s. But there are reasons enough to simply skip this mediocre action film (for you...

Jigsaw (2017)

“Salvation can be yours, if you cleanse yourselves of the habitual lies which have brought you here. Lies that you have told yourselves, lies that have brutalized others. Confess. The truth will set you free.” When watching a YouTube video where a baseball hits someone with a dizzying speed right in the spot that’s used to take care of having...

Beyond Skyline 0

Beyond Skyline (2017)

“What the hell you think that was, man…terrorists or what, huh? ISIS doesn’t have a fuckin’ spaceship!” “Beyond skyline” is without a doubt  one of the better low-budget SF films I have seen in recent years. Visually, that is. In terms of content, I thought it was only half successful. Until the part that takes place in Laos, it’s acceptable....

Suburbicon 0

Suburbicon (2017)

“The only thing Suburbicon is missing is you. Isn’t it time for your new start? Come home to Suburbicon.” It doesn’t happen often, but now I had a feeling I didn’t really understand what I’d watched. Not that “Suburbicon” was a complicated, incomprehensible film. But I didn’t know what the initial intention was of the filmmakers? Was it meant to...

Happy Death Day 0

Happy death day (2017)

My opinion on “Happy death day” “I’m totally having deja vu right now. Oh, I have it all the time. It’s supposed to mean like someone’s thinking about you while they’re masturbating. I have it at least five times a day.” You can’t really say “Happy death day” is original. You’ll immediately think of films as “Groundhog Day” and recently...
