The Professor and the Madman 2019
2.5 / 5 stars
Nomadland 2020
2.5 / 5 stars

A boring movie which tries to incorporate too many topics IMHO. I do like quiet films and didn’t expect it to live up to the 3 Oscars it won, but it just didn’t impress me.

The Lighthouse 2019 Recommendation
3.5 / 5 stars

The Lighthouse was a very special movie. Shot in black and white in a square aspect ratio (yes, it has been produced in 2019). A great set and setting. Very intense, has many twists, it’s haunting. Overall a great movie but not particularly easy to watch (and understand).

The Master 2012 Recommendation
3.5 / 5 stars

In the epoch of our lifetime, at every corner, there is someone claiming to know it better…

Kalifornia 1993
3.0 / 5 stars
John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum 2019
1.0 / 5 stars

This feels like the lowlight of the series.

Foxcatcher 2014 Recommendation
3.5 / 5 stars

A strong, dark and calm movie about a true murder. I found the acting to be top-notch; the emotions were transported so well.

Dirty Dancing 1987
2.0 / 5 stars
Capharnaüm 2018 Recommendation
4.0 / 5 stars

A kid sueing his parents for neglect. It was filmed without educated actors and thus it appears very real (and it is - read the Trivia on IMDb after watching).

Super Size Me 2004
2.5 / 5 stars
Apollo 13 1995
3.0 / 5 stars
Beerfest 2006
1.5 / 5 stars

As a German I can just say: this is pure fiction. Don’t waste your time.

Anyway, when watching, opt for something stronger than beer to bear this flick.

1.0 / 5 stars
Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story 2004
2.5 / 5 stars
The Ninth Gate 1999
2.5 / 5 stars

Somehow I felt the movie tried to be too much and lost its plot. Quite disappointing for a Polanski.

Eighth Grade 2018
3.0 / 5 stars

No, the title does not contain a typo. The movie did a good job on the emotional roller coaster one goes through in the eighth grad.

Entebbe 2018
2.0 / 5 stars

It’s really sad to see such a promising topic rehashed into a boring and linear movie.

Finally I know the origin of a quote I heard quite often. Can’t remember where tho.

The Fifth Element 1997
0.5 / 5 stars

Haven’t seen this one in the 90s and had positive associations to it. Had.

4 luni, 3 saptamâni si 2 zile 2007
3.5 / 5 stars

Gaspar Noe said this film inspired him. Consequently, it’s already been on my to watch list.

Plays in 1980’s Romania.

This is not for the squeamish.

Hidden 2020
3.0 / 5 stars
Bin-jip 2004 Recommendation
3.5 / 5 stars

Oh yes, the 3-Iron can not solely be used to play Golf. Barely any speaking by the protagonists.

Exceptional movie.

24 Hour Party People 2002
3.5 / 5 stars

This was a fun people, music and drug movie. The sound track is great (Punk and House music).

Plenty of cameos.

I love motorsports and I imbibe everything related to it. This is a nice documentary of the early Formula 1 days with lots of original footage.
