95 97% Moulin Rouge! (2001) - Oct 04, 2008
"The movie equivalent of an orgasm; a pure and ecstatic energy outburst over way to soon. Luhrmann's over-the-top exercise in romantic escapism is nothing short of the musical spectacle of the new century."
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!..."
95 97% 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. "
0% Catwoman (2004) - Jun 05, 2010
"Made me realize that 'Miaw' rhymes with 'kill me now' "
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."
70 67% 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. "
35 19% 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 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."
90 93% Braveheart (1995) - Oct 04, 2008
"[blu-ray re-watch]: No wonder it took Gibson three months to physically recover from both starring in and directing this massive powerhouse. More than 15 years later his efforts still shines - looking better on bluray than ever. 'Braveheart' is epic, old-fashioned and first-classed craftsmanship led by the needed passion and madness of its director. It truly stands the test of time."
95 97% 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."
