|95 T10||Cesare deve morire (2012) - Dec 17, 2012
"To me both the most purely satisfying and complex movie experience of 2012 - and rarely has the 'you've never seen anything like this!'-cliche felt more fitting. Equally beautiful to watch and inspiring to experience, the Taviani brothers succeed in showcasing human beings instead of convicted demons - without sympathizing with their bad deeds, as illustrated perfectly in the last line: "Ever since I became acquainted with art my cell turned into a prison". "
|40 T3||Les Misérables (2012) - Jan 12, 2013
"Deep respect for Hooper's guts and willingness to take risks but, sadly, his version of what in my opinion is the greatest of the great stage musicals feels like a strangely rushed and emotionally forced tv-series. The characters are blown up in your face spilling their hearts out before you even get to know them, and though the method of live singing brings an authentic feeling it also drains the melody from too many of the songs. Oh, and Hathaway? Crybaby of the year."
|60 T5||Moneyball (2011) - Dec 19, 2011
"Sorkin's tightly written script never dissects the main premise in a way that baseball novices - like myself - fully comprehend what the heck Pitt's tense coach Beane is changing about baseball. It's something important about numbers and statistics, and it's wrapped up in intellectual nuances without the typical cliched pathos of sports movies - thanks! - but it never really got to me. Thus, no home run."
|95 T10||Moulin Rouge! (2001) - Oct 04, 2008
"The movie equivalent of an orgasm; a pure and ecstatic energy outburst over way to soon. Luhrmann's over-the-top exercise in romantic escapism is nothing short of the musical spectacle of the new century."
|70 T7||Easy A (2010) - Dec 04, 2010
"Stanley fucking Tucci, yet again I bow to your brilliance. And hey, the rest of the movie is close to equally sharp and hilarious - especially in the first half. Golden Globes, here's your comedy/musical category favourite."
|55 T5||Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011) - Jul 08, 2011
"Finally. After ten years of foreplay the saga of Harry Potter reaches its cinematic climax - and it's pretty damn explosive. Part 2 is pure fights, chases and wizardry war - an avalanche of action. Sadly, the big row falls short compared to modern classic spectacles like Saving Private Ryan's Omaha Beach or The Two Towers' Helm's Deep, and - even worse - director Yates loses sight of his characters and with them the much praised heart and soul of the franchise. An epic letdown."
|95 T10||Oldboy (2003) - Oct 04, 2008
"A brutal, yet poetic epic that contains both the most ingenious action visuals since The Matrix and the most breathtaking thriller-plot since Se7en. Cuts your heart and soul wide open while makes your pulse skip several beats - truly one of the decade's gigants."
|95 T10||Atonement (2007) - Oct 04, 2008
"Epic yet intimate, 'Atonement' is a both timeless and haunting dissection of the hardship of passion, the many faces of truth and the quest for redemption. Though technically flawless - in particular the stunning cinematography, score and costumes could all be viewed as separate pieces of first class art - the shiniest gem is the truly spectacular Saoirse Ronan providing the breakthrough of the decade."
|80 T9||Hanna (2011) - Jul 10, 2011
"In an almost Kubrick way of fashion Joe Wright knows how to mix and match sound with pictures like few living directors. 'Hanna' is yet another proof and depicts new and quirky sides of his immense talent flirting with Lynch-surrealism and challenging several filmmaking conventions. The story is bordering of non-existing but every piece of frame and audio demands - and deserves - your utmost attention. Plus, of course, behold the brilliance of Saoirse Ronan - the world's #1 rising star by far."
|75 T8||Toy Story 3 (2010) - Aug 29, 2010
"The plot formula seems a little generic the third time around, but these characters are simply impossible not to love. Charming, partly moving and a more than decent swan song for the trilogy that propelled the magic kingdom of Pixar... and hey - Totoro!"
