"This is the single most depressing movie I have ever seen and I have been doing Dostoevsky before. Something that all characters had in common is that none of them had a strong person next to them who they could count on to help them and for me this was the greatest message in the movie. If you are reading this, please look around, and help someone have a bit better life. Talk to people who need it, so more of us can avoid the abyss."

"The only thing that's good here is the script. It is executed terribly in all other aspects."
|74 81%||Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019) - Aug 30, 2019
"This one took about 50 minutes for me to get involved in what's happening. Fortunately after that Tarantino's writing started to shine through. The characters are realer than real again. The dialogues and interactions are fun and have an element of danger to them. However, I didn't feel like the supporting characters were fleshed out so well as they are usually in Tarantino's movies. The ending however was surprising and even touching which has never happened with Tarantino before."
|63 55%||P.S. I Love You (2007) - Aug 11, 2019
"A fairy-tale story about love trascending death and moving forward in the end. The basic story idea is excellent and it is delivered with good enough writing. Solid entertainment for a night with your lover."
|72 76%||Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) - Jul 31, 2019
"The movie is great fan service to those who used to be Pokémon fans, but grew up in the meantime. Everything you see here will be familiar. Even the structure of the story resembles to the old cartoon episodes. I had a very good and nostalgic time watching it. My only regret is that although they continued the old legendary tale of Mewtwo, it didn't really fit for me what they did with his character. Still, it's a must watch for Pokémon fans, and probably a good relaxation for others too."
|65 58%||The Lion King (2019) - Jul 22, 2019
"It's worth your time if you love the original, but if you haven't seen the 1994 version, go and watch that one. The archetypical story and characters are working here as well, Mufasa might even be better than in the animated movie. However the animals show almost no facial expression at all which added very much to the drama in the original. Also the songs are just terrible - aside from the opening - they put so little effort into them, it would have been better if they left them out altogether."
|95 98%||Chernobyl (2019) - Jul 16, 2019
"This one shocked me, even though I knew what's going to happen. We keep hearing stories about killing asteroids, nuclear war, gamma radiation from space, but in the end they remain just that: Stories. This one has really happened. It isn't just a scientist scaring children with dreadful possibilities. A single error can cause a catastrophe which can wipe out all of us. Our world is fragile, the miracle is if we stay alive and not if we live and HBO presents this fact in its complete horror."
|35 11%||Wrath of the Titans (2012) - Jul 01, 2019
"The movie is based upon characters from Greek mythology, but the story itself is original. The main theme is the demise of the gods, however very little is done to really embrace the tragedy of the plot line. Also it only features four gods out of a very rich pantheon which is strange since the story line clearly affects all gods. The movie's main strength is its CGI. If you want to see Greek myths in a visually stunning way, watch it. Otherwise it's not worth your time."
|63 55%||Rob Roy (1995) - Jun 23, 2019
"Basically the only thing that's historically accurate in this movie is the underlying conflict: A Scottish herder asks for money from a Duke and then he loses it. That's all. Almost nothing else that's depicted in this movie has actually happened. Even the main antagonist is a fictional character. That said, the movie is entertaining and the soundtrack is really beautiful; however the actual Rob Roy has led a quite interesting life anyway, so I fail to see why the movie makers had to change it."
|56 36%||Cat and Dog (1983) - Jun 22, 2019
"Well, if you have seen anything from Bud Spencer, you probably have a pretty good idea what this is about. The only novelty was that in this movie Bud was also a father and a husband. It was interesting to see the character in these roles. The picture might be good fun if you don't want to see anything serious."
