"’P-Please Mr. Spielberg’, the scientist insisted, ‘it’s been in there for too long!’. Steven Spielberg brushed him aside and signalled the control room. A large container labelled ‘Nostalgia Juice’ opened. Giant robotic arms produced a manuscript from the noxious fluid and handed it to him. He flipped through page after page of near intelligible letters. ‘It’s perfect’. He smiled. His eyes fixated on the faded headline of the wrinkled front page: 'Working title: The Goonies 2"

"It's not a particularly terrible remake. Just remember that supporting something like this means that you'll be seeing a shot for shot remake of 'A New Hope' with a CGI Chewie soon enough. "
|70 66%||Passengers (2016) - Oct 21, 2018
"The spaceship is so beautifully realised, that you can't blame us sci-fi buffs for being disappointed in discovering how all it does is revolve around a Disney love story. Now. If I had all the money in the world, and you should be glad that I don't, I'd buy the rights to 'Passengers' and make an R-rated version. It would be the same movie with one reshot scene: In my version Arura wakes up, confused that her pod is completely covered in white goo. "
|35 20%||Venom (2018) - Oct 18, 2018
"Judging by the post-credit Spiderman Multiverse scene, ‘Venom’ must be aimed at children, which sort of makes sense: A teased reporter buddies up with a loser symbiote to fight baddies and bullies. Having an alien that bites people's heads off in a movie that isn't R-rated, however, is just a much cheating expectations as serving people a veggie ‘burger’. I don't care that you didn’t hurt any moo-cows when making it, remove this salat from my plate at once!"

"This concept could have worked brilliantly if they hadn't chosen the least interesting of stories to tell about one of Denmark's most prolific kings."
|45 36%||Operation Finale (2018) - Oct 14, 2018
"If 'Operation Finale' had an aura of wanting to tell this story as truthfully as possible, it would have been easier for me to forgive how little tension Weitz manages to build throughout. The operation itself, as well as the acting talent on display, deserved an angry Steven Spielberg at the helm."

"I bet when Wolfgang Petersen saw the box office numbers he screamed: I told you! We should have gotten a bigger boat!"
|45 36%||22 July (2018) - Oct 14, 2018
"When nothing new about the Utøya attack is uncovered, and no protagonist victim is needed to figure, that executing teenagers with automatic weapons is a bad thing, '22 July' leaves the uncomfortable question, of why the world needed a fictionalized account of this terrible event at all. "
|35 20%||Sorry to Bother You (2018) - Oct 08, 2018
"Remember all those terrible movies that were made because kids saw 'Pulp Fiction'? I think we're starting to see the fallout from 'Get Out' winning that Oscar..."
|40 29%||Justice League (2017) - Oct 06, 2018
"I've been to a film festival these last days, watching movies based on their title alone. Man, that took me places; From Brasilian body horror to Iranian social satire. If you went in totally blank, you'd still be able to predict every single beat of 'Justice League'. There is no joy of storytelling, no will to try new things or play around with the silly ensemble of dated superheroes. 'Justice League' is a juggler fighting to keep the balls in the air until the next act is ready. Depressing."
