|29 T1||Duck, You Sucker (1971) - Mar 30, 2018
"This is a 2,5 hour movie that feels like a 4 hour movie. It starts out ok with Leone's tooth-fetish in the coach scene, but the movie quickly falls into a pattern of constant repetition and shooting. It's interspersed with bizarre slow-mo soft-focus scenes of John frolicking back in Ireland. There are several times when you think the movie has ended but then it keeps going with even more gunfire and that dreadful "shom shom" song. After 2 hours i just wanted it to be over. Guess what. Shom shom."
|36 T2||Duck Soup (1933) - Mar 30, 2018
"I'm normally a fan of 'cheesy' humour but my response to this movie was... lukewarm. There's a few decent sketches and some clever wordplay but i only really laughed two or three times. There's virtually no story, the music number is overlong and the fat jokes at the expensive of a normal-looking woman are painfully unfunny. If this is their best movie i think we can safely say Karl was the funniest brother. ಠ_ಠ"

|54 T4||Doctor Strange (2016) - Mar 13, 2017
"Dr. Strange MD is just Ironman with magic. You'd think a movie about wizards fighting would be less boring but apparently they felt the need to do the whole "tear him down, build him up thing" chronologically. Add a boring villain who's name you've already forgotten before the end and it's less than stellar. With better writing, directing and editing this could've been a good film. The acting is fine, the effects are great and the final fight is hilarious. Oh well."
|42 T3||The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970) - Mar 13, 2017
"Even with an hour cut out this movie feels overlong, more like several episodes of a tv-series. The circus plot of the first half hour has no bearing on the rest of the film, i can only imagine what other filler it originally contained. Aside from obvious plotholes it also suffers from the same problem as "Raiders of the Lost Ark" - everything would've played out almost the same way if the main character hadn't existed. And seriously, a midget submarine?"
|33 T2||Young Sherlock Holmes (1985) - Mar 13, 2017
"Starts out great but eventually degrades into "Indiana Holmes and the Temple of the Laughably Dated Stereotypes". It also gets increasingly boring and nonsensical, right up to the sleep-inducing final fight."
