Bio: The reason I have so few bad (=rated less than, say, 50) movies in the list is that I try NOT TO WATCH anything worse.

"Yeah...No. We already have Apted's Up series for that gimmick. As a narrative film, Boyhood is just too flat in its characterization & plot. It is beautifully shot & scored, though."
|60 5%||Jurassic World (2015) - Jul 30, 2016
"Jurassic World has got to be the most spectacular Mercedes ad ever, full of action and glamorous lens flare shots. But its story & characters are underwhelming; even the naturally witty Chris Pratt seems pale in this soulless, superficial, ill-conceived clusterstomp. Plotholes are GAPING everywhere. It's basically a movie about a bunch of bumbling, conniving idiots mismanaging the most dangerous theme park on earth. I wouldn't entrust those guys with running a popsicle stand. Not with my money!"

"Blurs the lines between documentary and fiction and raises questions about truthfulness and the issue of performance in social interactions. Between the lines, this subdued film with an emotional finale offers intriguing insights into modern Iranian society."

"I must be getting old. All this action without exposition or character background makes a meh movie for me."

"Outside of the excellent soundtrack this movie offers hardly anything which would make it stand out, especially against the background of the already competent original featuring John Wayne. Still: nice, with solid performances from Bridges and Steinfeld in particular."
|72 20%||Edge of Tomorrow (2014) - Dec 06, 2014
"This pony plays its one trick to the hilt. However, above and beyond the video game logic of infinite trial-death-respawn it does not offer anything engaging or enlightening (personally, I kept waiting for a "there is no spoon" moment), and the backstory is just your generic evil alien invasion fare - even Starship Troopers did this better."
