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 [...]

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. Cruise’s character gets caught in a time loop and fights that battle against scary aliens a million times until he’s as tough as female [...]

“In der Walachei habe ich Tausende gepfählt, nur um sie sterben zu sehen.” Der das sagt, im Film HE NEVER DIED, das ist einer, der sich schwer zuordnen lässt. Irgendwie wirkt er nett und ruhig.

Gah! Why can’t I have 5 films ex equo in the first place? Same for second and third? Goodness, I just KNOW how much work went into each and every one of them. And so many don’t make the cut just because … well, because of what? the new one, the shining one, the one [...]

SLEEPY HOLLOW and wrong German

2016-03-07 // 0 Comments

As much as I love watching SLEEPY HOLLOW I get irked by the lack of proper German. Why is it so hard to get vocal coaches or voiceovers to nail the German text lines? So far I’ve encountered one (1!) actor who speaks proper German. Why?!? Bad guys with an accent as thick as a [...]
