|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."
|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!..."
|80 T9||Hanna (2011) - Jul 10, 2011
"In an almost Kubrick way of fashion Joe Wright knows how to mix and match sound with pictures like few living directors. 'Hanna' is yet another proof and depicts new and quirky sides of his immense talent flirting with Lynch-surrealism and challenging several filmmaking conventions. The story is bordering of non-existing but every piece of frame and audio demands - and deserves - your utmost attention. Plus, of course, behold the brilliance of Saoirse Ronan - the world's #1 rising star by far."
|95 T10||Wings of Desire (1987) - Feb 19, 2012
"For a moment makes you truly appreciate being alive, the presence of the now and the magic of movies. Without turning sentimental or manipulative. A revelation. "
|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."
|55 T5||Melancholia (2011) - May 18, 2011
"Neither the absolutely breathtaking opening montage or a tender and humorous moment here and there in the first half can - sadly - save 'Melancholia' from leaving a somewhat indifferent and disappointing overall impression. Make no mistake, I'm a huge admirer of von Trier, but for the first time he doesn't really scratch through the surface or challenge the viewer. Instead you're left with surprisingly few impressions, thoughts and wonderments to linger on - in one word: 'Meh'."
|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. "
|55 T5||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."
|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."
|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."
