Check out Langelund's...
|15 T1||Hitch (2005) - Dec 12, 2010
"What a formulaic load of crap even for Hollywood standards: The sleek love guru is of course deep down a good guy and is really just looking for true love bla bla bla. And as if that isn't enough it all ends with a big, happy dance number (!). I'd be much more interested in the alternative version featuring a brutally selfish pickup artist deliberately seducing hundreds of random women while enjoying his independence and freedom. Perhaps ending with a nice, over-the-top orgie. Just a suggestion."
|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."
|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."
|70 T7||Brave (2012) - Sep 01, 2012
"Liked the Obviously Lesbian Princess part better than the Grizzly Mom half which felt like a 2.0 version of 'Brother Bear'. Anyway, a decent Pixar pic is still way preferable to most animated features. "
|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."
|35 T2||Machete (2010) - Nov 07, 2010
"Oh well, so much for expecting 'Movie of the Year'... The Machete-trailer was Grindhouse's most memorable part by far, but as a feature piece it loses its coolness at the same speed as the Matrix sequels. Hot chicks though - and that Don Johnson kid got talent. "
|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."
|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||The White Ribbon (2009) - Dec 17, 2009
"The most memorable cinema experience for me in 2009. A film packed with so many gems both considering characters, scenes and imagery, that I'm hardly able to fully cope with it. In lack of better words or abilities to describe it, this is a truly haunting movie experience dealing with everything from the origin of terror to the first sparkle of love. "
|65 T6||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. "
