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 [...]

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 [...]

HE NEVER DIED – feinster Vampir-Stoff

2016-05-03 // 0 Comments

“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. Sind die Narben auf seinem Rücken etwa Spuren gestutzter Engelsflügel? Waren diese Flügel weiss? Oder schwarz? Was verstaut er da [...]

LOOPER – brilliant film

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. [...]

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 [...]

MEN&CHICKEN – komischer Irrsinns-Trip in dänischem Tempo

2015-06-18 // 0 Comments

Düstere Vorahnungen beschleichen einen beim Namen Thanatos – so hiess nämlich der leibliche Vater von Elias und Gabriel, wie die beiden ungleichen Brüder nach dem Tod ihres Ziehvaters per skurriler Video-Botschaft erfahren. Also auf zur entlegenen dänischen Insel Ork, wo dieser Thanatos bald seinen 100sten Geburtstag feiern soll. Auf dem verfallenen Anwesen des Jubilars treiben [...]

THE FOUNTAIN starring Hugh Jackman

2015-05-07 // 0 Comments

Sometimes a film haunts you – in a good way, even though it has its flaws. THE FOUNTAIN is one such, but you’ll need some patience to sit through your confusion as to which story writer/director Darren Aronofsky actually wants to tell. Powerful waves of imagery crash against you, eerie and beautiful, yet not fully explicable [...]
