"Thor 2 is mostly just uninteresting. The villain, his motivation, the CGI-battles, the crappy sidekicks, et cetera. I didn't care for any of it. It lacks the charm and fish-out-of-water stuff from the first film. But it has the same Loki vs Thor conflict we already saw. Twice. Hiddleston did the best he could with the material he got but that's about it."
|20 4%||Iron Man 3 (2013) - Jan 06, 2021
"Iron Man 3 is an overlong, boring, humourless, obnoxious, idiotic, unbelievable, misconceived and utterly uninteresting movie. They want you to feel sorry for this asshole billionaire armsdealer, which is laughable. The villain wants to make lavapeople for some reason, i honestly couldn't care less. The only reason this gets any points is the Mandarin twist and the handful of jokes that work."

"After a couple of duds and a single pass (Thor 1) they finally got it right. The bad guys are still uninteresting and it ends with the "laser into the sky" trope but it's fun. The action is solid, the interactions are entertaining and it's often quite funny ("puny god"). The characters work a lot better if they have someone to play off of who isn't an employee or a sidekick."
|50 29%||Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) - Jan 06, 2021
"Captain America starts out alright but collapses about halfway through. Evans looks a bit too weird/creepy shrunken down, but otherwise his origin stuff works well enough. The part where he is used for propaganda is amusing too. But once he starts fighting the red version of The Mask it gets really boring. This movie has people beating up Nazis with laser guns and it's still dull. Mostly because the "action" is aggressively PG-13. It turns into Captain America: The Plot Armor."
|40 20%||Dear White People (2014) - Jan 06, 2021
"DWP is dated, feeble, unfocused and super-incrowdey. It's about four beautiful people who can afford to study at a fancy university dealing with (mostly) microaggressions. None of these characters are developed much, except maybe for Sam. I also got the idea they played it too safe, although apparently this was provocative in the US in 2014. It lacks oomph. It lacks depth. It lacks something to really root for. Even the climax just kinda fizzles out. Heck, it isn't even funny at any point. Meh."
|10 0%||Brimstone (2016) - Jan 06, 2021
"Brimstone is an utterly nonsensical, insanely exploitative piece of trash. It starts out funny with Koolhoven pretentiously putting his name on the title and using chapters. After that you get 2,5 hours of violence against women. This is done without any respect to the subject, and so exaggerated that it almost becomes comical - which it shouldn't. On top of that Pearce is a magical murderer who can find and kill anyone unseen at any time. Fuck this movie."
|75 67%||Three Identical Strangers (2018) - Jan 06, 2021
"An engaging documentary that just draws you in and generally keeps your interest until the bizarre conclusion. It does suffer a bit from "Americanisms", i.e. exaggerations and overt sentimentality. But it makes up for that by highlighting the flaws in Eddy's dad among things. Really solid."
|80 80%||Jojo Rabbit (2019) - Jan 06, 2021
"This is such a good movie. Unusual, funny, weirding, scary, touching - it manages to combine all of these. The four main actors (Davis, Waititi, McKenzie, Johansson) are great, though some of the other characters were a bit miscast IMO (Rockwell, Wilson). Rockwell's character in general is the only thing that bothered me. His medals show he's fought fanatically for Nazi Germany but in the movie he's a "good" Nazi? Despite that i would recommend this movie to everyone."
|30 10%||Odd Man Out (1947) - Dec 29, 2020
"A nearly 2-hour movie about a bunch of morons unable to find their friend who fell out of their car and they didn't stop for despite not being chased. And that happened after they left him standing, allowed someone to walk up and point a gun at him. The utter stupidity and lack of tempo made me unable to enjoy this crappy version of The Seventh Cross."
|40 20%||High Crime (1973) - Dec 29, 2020
"An unremarkable revenge movie in which a bunch of dummies get hit by cars/bikes."
