Low Tide

A charming film but in a way disappointing.

Eight, nine, ten. A thousand.
You boys find any more coins,
give me a holler.

Once and a while I like to watch a well-made coming-of-age movie. Such a film about juvenile innocence in which a radical event shakes the pleasant life of one or more young people. A life experience many of them look back at when they are adults. Like in “Stand by me” where a group of comrades goes looking for a corpse to become famous. In “Mud” it’s about two rascals helping a fugitive. And …

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

I really liked this neat little ghost-story.

You don’t read the book.
The book reads you.

A few years ago there was already the movie “Goosebumps“, based on the stories of R.L. Stine, with the not so funny Jack Black. The only thing I can remember about this film is that an immense amount of figures from that book series were used to make life miserable for the protagonists. Fortunately the film “Scary stories to tell in the dark” doesn’t make the same mistake. This film is based on an iconic series of stories of the …

A character study on human alienation forged in the flames of uncompromising vision.

Ophelia (2018)

"Ophelia" is as lavished as any reworking of Shakespeare can be, but it's so dry, flat, and unremarkable that there's little to make it stand out from any other similar productions.

Terribly exaggerated but extremely entertaining

I’m not working with this guy.
I’ve been there, done that.
The minute he gets involved, you can kiss goodbye to any finesse
because She-Hulk here only knows how to smash.
Yeah, Mr. Arson here only knows how to blow shit up.

When I was at the cinema with my family and close friends (with little kids in our company) and had to choose between “The Lion King” and “Hobbs & Shaw“, I was facing a dilemma. On the one hand, you have the live-action remake of a Disney classic with a …

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Stuck Between The Rock and a Hardcase

It was inevitable that we could get a Fast and Furious spinoff at some point - especially once the action started turning from "awesome car races" to "physically impossible insanity" which pretty much has lasted for the last three films. In fact, I'm surprised it took this long. Even though it caused some animosity among the "family" Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham make a damn good dynamic duo, and have great on-screen chemistry. The film is as ridiculous as you …

Hobbs & Shaw - Review

'Hobbs & Shaw' is literally 2 hours of people dissing each other and it isn't just from Dwayne and Statham.

It's a dumb movie, but at this point we should just expect that with these movies. Judging it on a entertainment standpoint, it succeeds on that. I was never bored watching it, which is the best compliment I can give.

Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham both have such great chemistry and comedic timing, the movie wouldn't stand without them, of course.

I liked Idris Elba as the …

The Rock & Transporter vs Black Superman? I'm in!

The first spin-off in the Fast and Furious movies is a total blast. Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham are enormously entertaining playing off one another. Add Idris Elba as a cyborg terrorist (yes you read correctly) and Vanessa Kirby as a sexy spy and viewers are in for one wild adrenaline rush of a blockbuster.
Directed by David Leitch, one of the John Wick directors, the action scenes and spectacle is top notch and creative. Despite clocking at over two hours, the film is fast paced and …
