|45 T3||Iron Man 2 (2010) - Apr 28, 2010
"Entertainment-wise decent, but neither as charming nor as packed with memorable moments as the original. And what's worse is that it doesn't really bring something new, something different or fresh to the genre - or the franchise. Quite indifferent, really - which is a word that you should NEVER have to use when describing a movie with Downey jr., Rourke AND Johansson (!)"
|100 T10||The Tree of Life (2011) - May 22, 2011
"The story of life. Envisioned as a prayer, told through jaw-dropping poetry and imagery. Nothing like any piece of art you've ever seen - and arguably the most memorable movie of the decade."
|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."
|100 T10||Eyes Wide Shut (1999) - Dec 15, 2010
"It's probably just me, but this is - in my eyes - Kubrick's most intriguing work. Far from 'perfection', but indeed a perfect example that sometimes the flawed gems leave the most distinctive impressions in the long run. I for one keep coming back to the labyrinthine mysteries, the haunting imagery and the raw yet insightful psychological take on dark sexuality. A more than worthy swan song for one of the brightest geniuses ever to shine over the world of cinema."
|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!"
|0 T1||Catwoman (2004) - Jun 05, 2010
"Made me realize that 'Miaw' rhymes with 'kill me now' "
|100 T10||Dancer in the Dark (2000) - Oct 04, 2008
"Never before or since has I been so deeply affected emotionally by a motion picture. I literally cried like a baby - on and off - for months, and my 15-year-old self was taught a lesson about how powerful movies can be. Dancer in the Dark made the seed for my neverending love for and interest in film as an artform blossom like no other. Hell, it changed my life. "
|35 T2||A Beautiful Mind (2001) - Oct 04, 2008
"How did this EVER win the Best Picture Oscar?! I mean, come on! It was up against the spectacular Moulin Rouge, the best part of the LOTR trilogy, the unforgettable drama of In The Bedroom and yet another great Altman ensemble piece, Gosford Park. Four splendid films - two of them masterful. But no, let's award the plain, sobby biopic by the dude from Happy Days and penned by the writer of Batman & Robin. This will forever be beyond me, AMPAS. "
|90 T10||Braveheart (1995) - Oct 04, 2008
"[blu-ray re-watch]: No wonder it took Gibson three months to physically recover from both starring in and directing this massive powerhouse. More than 15 years later his efforts still shines - looking better on bluray than ever. 'Braveheart' is epic, old-fashioned and first-classed craftsmanship led by the needed passion and madness of its director. It truly stands the test of time."
