Movies

Here you will find a variation of reviews of mostly current movies out in cinema, on DVD or VoD. That is the stuff I watch most frequently. However, there will be occasional reviews of older movies I finally managed to catch up on.

Trailer Roundups: As someone who likes to be hyped, I watch a lot of new trailers to get a first impression of whether I’m gonna like that particular movie or (season of a) TV show. That is why I’m going to regularly comment on the latest trailers. The intervals will be 1 or 2 weeks because after that, the discussion is over and no one gives a crap anymore.

Trailer Roundup January & February 2017


Movie reviews:

5/5:

The Shawshank Redemption (1994): #1 on IMDb – with good reason

4,5/5:

Nocturnal Animals (2016) – Neo-noir and (relationship) drama in one movie

Sing Street (2016) -Rock’n’Roll at an Irish school

4/5:

The Evil Dead (1981) – Gruesome Cabin Horror

Army of Darkness (1992) – Welcome to the Ash Williams show -or: From horror to comedy in one franchise

Evil Dead (2013) – A competent horror flick, a bit less successful as a remake

The Night Before (2015) – A Christmas comedy that works surprisingly well

3,5/5:

Doctor Strange – Or: How I Stopped Blindly Accepting The Marvel Formula And Detect Franchise Fatigue

Evil Dead II (1987) – exactly like part I, just a lot more absurd

It’s A Wonderful Life (1946) – Not merely a Christmas movie

The Nice Guys (2016) –

3/5:

The Boy (2016) – or rather: The “Boy”

2,5/5:

2/5:

The Forest (2016) – a movie almost as dull as its title

1,5/5:

The Wolverine (2013) – Another lame Wolverine solo film
