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 - Decent films that I consider to be slightly above average.
61-70 - Good films, but not very memorable.
71-80 - Very good movies that I liked and would recommend.
81-90 - Great films with some flaw.
91-100 - Exceptional, life-changing, desert island films.

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

40 25% The Human Behavior Experiments (2006) - Aug 16, 2019
"So I have an interest in the subject and I am SICK AND TIRED of reading and hearing of the same few stories when the subject is breached. I mean Kitty story has been proved untrue probably as many times as it has been told, and it is being kept repeated in documentaries and movies as a fact. Overall, this documentary might serve as a captivating intro to the subject, but production values are poor (cheap TV production), and it has no depth."
64 69% Sisters (1973) - Aug 08, 2019
"I get how everyone seems to see Hitchcock, but as I was watching this weird psychological thriller I was thinking of Polanski. Now, I'm not putting De Palma in the same league as Polanski or Hitch. Sisters feels like a (good) student film - a lot experimentation, uneven tone, lack of directors own voice. And yet, despite the flaws, it feels fresh and daring. I have to say, I just discovered Margot Kidder with this film. "
63 67% Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine (2015) - Aug 04, 2019
"When the part about cancer came, I found myself thinking 'Talk about karma...'. Gibney does his part in exposing the mass delirium surrounding Job's personality cult. The guy was more than just an asshole, it could be argued that he was plain evil. Interesting two hours of shitting on Jobs. "
61 62% The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley (2019) - Aug 04, 2019
"I guess I'm living a bit under the rock, so I never heard of this lady before, but I find these comic-book-character worthy tech people fascinating. I feel like I learned a lot of what she did, and theories why she did it, but I wish there was more about her as a person, si I could make theories of my own. Seriously, what's with the voice?"
66 73% The Armstrong Lie (2013) - Aug 03, 2019
"Armstrong is surely a rat, but I like how this documentary made me think in broader strokes. For example, if the sport was the most popular when everyone was doping, doesn't it mean that doping makes a sport better, therefore they should just allow to let it roll? Also, I thought it shows how important the game of public opinion is, and how easy it actually is to create this fake reality. How many things that we think are truth, are just blatant lies, that no one cared to see?"
59 55% McQueen (2018) - Jul 31, 2019
"As life would have it, I can tell Alexander McQueens apart from Tom Fords without ever having interest in fashion, so it is interesting to learn the story behind overpriced t-shirts with skulls and crow shadows on them. Interesting story, but it's hard to see it as anything but a memorial that can't but paint an always positive picture of the man. "
66 73% Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room (2005) - Jul 31, 2019
"I might be waaaay off, but to me this story serves as an example on why libertarianism doesn't work in read life. The very idea that things will work out themselves if you let rich and powerful do whatever they want is absurd to me. I just can't see what else could have come out of allowing mark-to-market accounting - it's a bit like leaving a wolf in a same room with sheep, and then blaming wolf for killing it. Interesting docu, took me a while to get around watching it."
36 19% P Storm (2019) - Jul 28, 2019
"Veteran director David Lam is on some Alphabet killer type of trip where he makes movies about Anti Corruption agent Louis Koo solving the cases in different places and titled as a changing latter storm. 'P' stands for prison. Although it seems that the movie plot is based on RL, it's just too ridiculous to be taken as anything more than a pretty bad prison action b-movie. "
20 5% Olympus Has Fallen (2013) - May 20, 2019
"I believe when Bill Hick's talked about people who suck Satan's cock he meant exactly the type of people who made this movie. No one could convince me that someone would be inspired to make such a patriotic cheese without some interested party throwing as much money as it cost to buy a soul these days. I found yellow terrorist's evil plan brilliantly ironic. Whoever wrote that deserves a clap on the back (when they choke on that juicy Satan's cock.) NSFW "
40 25% The Replacement Killers (1998) - May 20, 2019
"First time rated on December 23rd, 2008. Rewatching this almost 12 years later on my completely unexplainable quest to watch every movie Mr. Fuqua directed. This one is an Americanized (or bastardized) bullet ballet flick. Although it is a very close imitation of John Woo's early work, it is cheesy and somewhat pathetic where same movies made in HK are cool and fun. Beats me. "
