|50 T4||Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) - Jun 29, 2011
"Bigger, louder and - yes - way better than "Revenge of the Fallen" - Megatron indeed rhymes with testosteron!... On the downside even Turturro, Malkovich and McDormand can't diminish that the Megan Fox replacement is as annoying as her lips are overly huge, the sidekicks still aren't funny and the script is overlong and unfocused. But hey - who cares, Bay knows how to entertain and tomorrow I've happily forgotten all about this 2,5 hour robotic porn-buster anyway."
|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. "
|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."
|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. "
|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 (!)"
|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". "
|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."
|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."
|0 T1||Catwoman (2004) - Jun 05, 2010
"Made me realize that 'Miaw' rhymes with 'kill me now' "
|80 T9||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!..."
