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 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 (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...

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...

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...

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....

Monster Party 0

Monster Party (2018)

Them fucking yuppie scums won’t know what hit them. Perhaps it would be better that future burglars screen the residents of the targeted house first and then see if there’s something to get. That’s certainly a lesson those young burglars have learned in the movie “Monster Party“. After seeing the...

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...

El Bar (2017)

Film Review : El Bar Hey, a little respect. We’re all human beings here. We have to stick together and stay calm. “El bar” pretends to be a thriller comedy, but falls short on both levels. The film leans rather towards the comedy genre. But in terms of thriller, it’s...

Stan & Ollie (2018)

I thought you’d retired. No, we’re-we’re… we’re getting older, but we’re not done yet. Simply nostalgia. “Stan & Ollie” is a trip to a bygone era when I was a little boy. When I returned from school on Friday afternoon, I threw my schoolbag somewhere in a corner and turned...

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...

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...

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...

Entanglement 0

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...

Mom and Dad (2017)

My opinion on “Mom and Dad” “I mean, I used to be Brent… and you used to be Kendall… and now we’re just… Mom and Dad.” I’m sure some parents will experience it in their life. The moment you get a bit tired of your offspring. That you would love...

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri 0

Film Review : Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)

“Raped while Dying. Still no arrests. How come, chief Willoughby?” Those who read my writing attempts occasionally, know that I thoroughly hate everything that has the appearance of a serial or when prequels and sequels are being produced just to exploit the story even further. So, don’t panic while reading...
