Don’t blink … not only with Weeping Angels

2016-05-31 // 0 Comments

Michael Caine gives us some great advise here … so I’ll watch my fav actors even closer, knowing that the likes of Stephen Moyer or Kristen Stewart don’t need to be told that kind of basics 🙂 Watch out, actors, the next film festival is close! PS: if you’re wondering what the Weeping Angels are about check out [...]

EDGE OF TOMORROW – hugely entertaining

2016-05-09 // 1 Comment

Tom Cruise as a sleazy communications officer who does not want any part in any combat situation is a funny entree to this INDEPENDENCE DAY meets GROUNDHOG DAY meets MISSION IMPOSSIBLE story.

So I watched STAR WARS VII last night. It was exhilarating and riveting, but I did feel a lingering unease after leaving the cinema at about 3 a.m., as if something was missing. Jep. It feels like the original, but there’s a huge difference as well: it is nothing as spectacularly new as the original [...]
