65 57% Avatar (2009) - Dec 16, 2009
"Dear James Cameron - you will always be the king of my world. I'll never let go. But this time you "only" managed to entertain me. You didn't move me. Is Avatar a stunning adventure with groundbreaking effects? Oh yeah. But will it get to people, REALLY get to people, and make 'em wanna watch it over and over again in the years to come like so many of us did with Titanic, T2 and Aliens? I don't think so. I know I for one won't. "
100 99% Babe (1995) - Oct 04, 2008
"If Hans Christian Andersen came back from the dead and decided to make a movie, if would probably look a lot like this. Pure-hearted joy and old-school fairytale charm has rarely - if ever - been captured more touching on celluloid than here. That'll do for a perfect score, pig. That'll do."
40 24% 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 99% 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. "
0% Clash of the Titans (2010) - Aug 15, 2010
"From the very first frame and narration ("the oldest stories are written in the stars") this is one of the stupidest piece of noisy rubbish, I have ever seen.... At least Michael Bay's crap (mostly) have some sort of irony to it. "
100 99% 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."
100 99% Bird on a Wire (1974) - Jan 19, 2011
"One of those rare 'how did I ever manage to get by without having experienced this before?'-life changing eye openers. Cinema verite at its finest and a brief yet truthful and magic glimpse at what defines the poetic and musical genius that is Leonard Cohen."
45 29% 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 (!)"
80 84% My Winnipeg (2007) - May 19, 2009
"My first expierence with Mad Maddin will for sure not be the last. Far from being flawless, My Winnipeg is constantly compelling, impossible to predict and quite simply unlike ANYTHING I have ever seen or experienced. Poetry meets documentary, German expressionism inspired aesthetics goes post modern, and... well - you gotta see it for yourself!..."
55 40% 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."
