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 [...]

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 [...]

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 TUDORS – a jewel amongst series

2015-05-29 // 0 Comments

Not only are all technical necessities of the craft met most stunningly, Michael Hirst’s THE TUDORS is excellently written and beautifully played by such wonderful talent as Jonathan Rhys Meyers (King Henry VIII), Sam Neill (Cardinal Wolsey), James Frain (Sir Thomas Cromwell), Natalie Dormer (Queen Anne Boleyn), Henry Cavill (Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk) and many, [...]

THE TEAM – pan-european disaster

2015-03-02 // 2 Comments

I wanted to love THE TEAM – I loved BRON and I’m all for new TV formats. But this would-be copy of THE BRIDGE just wastefully uses great names like Lars Mikkelsen for characters I don’t care one iota about, putting them in the most beautiful settings just to have them talk. And phone. And talk some [...]

Aus der Pressemeldung: “Mehr Pampa geht nicht: Irgendwo im Nirgendwo fragt sich der 16-jährige Ben, ob es für ihn und sein Dorf überhaupt eine Zukunft gibt.
