Why no reviews? Three reasons!

2017-08-29 // 0 Comments

Why on earth do I increasingly hesitate to write reviews? Well, there are three reasons: For one, I’m utterly bored with mainstream cinema. It’s a special effects bravado with little to no story, it’s predictable, hollow and not even entertaining. Secondly: I’m utterly bored with Indy movies. They’re either poorly made in some attempt to [...]

OZARK – best TV show since BREAKING BAD

2017-08-07 // 0 Comments

What a ride! That Netflix Original series OZARK combines brilliant film workmanship with a great storyline and unforgettable, hilarious twists. Ok, I found TRUE BLOOD hilarious as well. Jason Bateman (love him in ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT) not only plays the male lead, he also did some great directing. Each and every character is meticulously casted, including Ozark [...]

LOOPER – brilliant film

2016-05-02 // 0 Comments

We see a man in a field. He recites French words. Then he glances at his strangely futuristic pocket watch and gets his gun ready. On a blue plastic canvas before him appears a man out of nowhere. He shoots him, turns him over and cuts open his jacket to retrieve several ingots of silver. [...]

PUTIN, das Buch

2015-12-24 // 0 Comments

Ein fantastisches Sachbuch! Liest sich spannender als so mancher Roman, und zeigt das Weltgeschehen ausnahmsweise mal nicht aus der US-amerikanischen Sicht. Auch die oft schlecht informierten (oder Recherche-unwilligen) Medien, die sich häufig vor den PR-Karren des “Westens” spannen lassen, kriegen ihr Fett ab. Autor Hubert Seipel, Jahrgang 1950, schrieb für Stern und Spiegel, war [...]

OMEGA 3 – science fiction satire about food ideologies

2015-06-07 // 1 Comment

Cars (carnivores) have been the Antichrist for ages, but now even Ollies (“Egg-eaters!”) hate Vegs (“tomato-worshippers”), and Fishies battle Frux with the ferocity of Djihadists. But the Macs (“macrobiotic crap!”) – the “Opus Dei of nutrition”, aptly clad in black – are the real bad guys. They make no prisoners, everyone knows that. [...]

My fav films 2014 – made me think

2014-12-18 // 0 Comments

Well, LUCY most definitely made me think “what if”, but as lasting impressions go MAGICAL GIRL still haunts me, in disturbing detail. And then there’s EQUALIZER with its dichotomy between flawless aesthetics and most brutal violence, a symphony of beauty were it not for the countless deaths. Films like WHO AM I – NO SYSTEM IS [...]

My fav films 2014 – the best laugh

2014-12-16 // 0 Comments

WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS had me literally rolling on the floor laughing my proverbial behind off – this can be embarrassing in a crowded cinema, so brace yourselves. As funny Vampires go, THERAPY FOR A VAMPIRE gave me some hilarity too. I did leave the movie theatre with a wide grin on my [...]
