Bio:
Rating system that I use:
0-10 - Hated these movies.
11-20 - Simply bad.
21-30 - Waste of time.
31-40 - Waste of time, but these films have their moment or two.
41-50 - Mediocre films that I consider to be slightly below average.
51-60 - OK films that I consider to be slightly above average.
61-70 - Decent. Had a good time watching them.
71-80 - Very good movies that I liked and would recommend.
81-90 - Great films with some flaw.
91-100 - Exeptional, life-changing, desert island films.

No short review - very old ratings, that I'm not so sure about any more.

53 44% Black Panther (2018) - Nov 11, 2018
"For me, it did not deliver on the hype. I am most disappointed with the tone of the film - it feels like low-grade Shakespeare play. It's just too damn serious and bombastic. I would be curious to see rating break-down by race, but honestly, I don't see how it could be empowering in any way."
55 47% Apostle (2018) - Nov 09, 2018
"Something different, and for the first half quite intriguing (if you can stomach Stevens' overacting). The monsters didn't work for me at all. "
46 32% Alpha (2018) - Nov 08, 2018
"While CGI wolves are nice, I'm a cat person myself. I don't care for the touching stories of friendships between CGI animals in general. The movie looks nice, though, and there is some strange comfort in the predictable nature of feel-good film."
23 7% Andre the Giant (2018) - Nov 06, 2018
"What I got from this documentary, is that multi-billion dollar industry that pro-wrestling is, was built on one psychically sick man. So now I think pro-wresting isn't just incredibly dumb, but also morally disgusting. Everyone in the docu were saying what a great man Andre was, but I learned very little about his personality and what made him a great man, except his condition that actually made him suffer his whole life. "
39 23% The Equalizer 2 (2018) - Nov 06, 2018
"A step down from the first movie, which wasn't anything special neither, but at least it had some class. Denzel is no longer semi-autistic bad-ass, just some do-gooder super-assassin Lyft driver. He doesn't get interesting villain either. Completely forgettable action movie. At least it didn't get on my nerves. "
62 64% Carnival of Souls (1962) - Oct 31, 2018
"Low budget b-movie created for peanuts around the abandoned attraction park Harvey saw on his holiday and thought it would make a great location. Yet not only it has cult following, but also accepted in arthouse circles. For a film shot on such a low budget by people who never before of after made a feature film, it looks gorgeous. Yet, you are always reminded that this is b-movie. One of those times when things just come together against all odds. "
52 42% The Equalizer (2014) - Oct 31, 2018
"At one point during this film a thought popped in my mind, that it owes a lot to heroic bloodshed movies from Hong Kong. And funny enough Fuqua started his career directing Chow Yun-Fat in John Woo produced film. Man, I really know my films. Back on point, I really liked first act - solid man-movie with quite, semi-autistic and humble cool-ass Denzel. Second act was as good with introduction of equally cool villain. Third act - a bit too fantasy, and pronounced style is just so-so."
27 9% Deadpool 2 (2018) - Oct 29, 2018
"Two types of films I really hate are over-sentimental melodramas and over-vulgar comedies. Like the first movie, Deadpool 2 is exactly the second type. It even managed to make self-awareness totally uncool. I also hated how absurd the plot was: the guy is indestructible, but then this super-power stopping collar appears, the guy has a time machine which he can use ONLY twice, but then someone just recharges it. I mean WTF?"
58 54% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) - Oct 29, 2018
"One thing I have to give Marvel universe films, is that each is quite different in the tone. Ant-man is that clean-fun loving guy who would catch a spider and let it outside, rather than kill it. That's why enjoyed this film. No gimmick, no love-it or hate-it sense of humor, just very enjoyable if unmemorable adventure."
37 20% Eighth Grade (2018) - Oct 21, 2018
"It Gets Better type of movie about awkward (I thought she was just pathetic and dumb) white girl. Perhaps generation gap is partially why I disliked this film. But having seen and loving Burnham's stand-up specials I am shocked how superficial and formulaic this film is. PSA for modern suburban middle-graders."
