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 [...]

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 [...]

All those children and teachers, doctors and social workers, priests and nuns who see the white people come, [...]

Max 5 instead of 50 SHADES OF GREY – a missed chance

Jamie Dornan is no Christian Grey – and that’s not only my opinion. Not for a second did I buy that a) this guy has built and runs a multimillion enterprise, b) he needs to be in control of everything including himself or c) he is rather reluctantly falling for Anastasia. So my beloved 50 SHADES OF [...]
