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.
|76 T10||O.J.: Made in America (2016) - Mar 17, 2017
"Really good documentary. It gives a lot of context for one helluva weird sociological event. Right from the start it surprised me how interesting story about american footballer can be. I remember hearing about this case on TV when it happened (I was as far from USA as one can be), but all the race-issues background was new to me. Fascinating."
|54 T5||13th (2016) - Mar 13, 2017
"I saw very similar documentary a few years back already, so it wasn't new or very interesting to me. USA is FUBAR."
|63 T7||Prisoners (2013) - Mar 09, 2017
"Solid, technically impressive first rate thriller. However, the story is unsatisfying and feels all too familiar. No sympathy for grieving dad vigilante from me. Worth seeing, but once is enough."
|26 T1||Army of One (2016) - Mar 08, 2017
"When Nic Cage acts a crazy person and manages to be boring in the role it means bad news for the movie. Larry Charles has a sense of a humour of kindergarten kid."
|39 T3||Jane Got a Gun (2016) - Mar 08, 2017
"It just wasted time on a drama revealed with flashbacks. Love triangle as a main plot element in a western? Please, just give me good ol' shoot 'em up!"
|46 T4||Warcraft (2016) - Mar 08, 2017
"The last Warcraft game I played was the one with "Stop poking me!" phrase in it. I actually almost skipped this film. It wasn't bad really, considering. I didn't expect and liked orc POV. A classic story (in a sense that it is one of the basic presets)."
|38 T3||Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) - Mar 08, 2017
"I'm so not target audience for this. I guess it is well made for what it is, and it didn't piss me off, but I just can't rate it any higher based on how rewarding this felt to me."
|69 T9||Argo (2012) - Mar 08, 2017
"I'm surprised how much I liked this. It would have been my Oscar pick as well. the story somehow feels perfect for Hollywood - there is that sense of love of movies. I think the script was strong enough so even Affleck couldn't have had possibly ruined it. Also it's really tense. Even though I knew that they will escape I still was 'omg move already, plane!!!!1'. I liked how one of the first things said in the movie is that CIA fuckd Iranians first and are responsible for what happened."
|53 T5||Amsterdamned (1988) - Mar 08, 2017
"Second Dick Mass movie I watch, and the pattern of him mixing Hollywood and euro 80's sensibilities is already clear. For the first half hour it looked like it's gonna be a great flick - I liked the filter used in cinematography, I liked colourful characters as well, especially 80's keds and leather jacket wearing cool-cop, but the story is not very interesting. A waste of good setup and directing."
|54 T5||The Town (2010) - Mar 05, 2017
"[extended cut] Me in 2010: "I'll be darned, Ben Affleck directed a movie? I definitely don't want to see it". Me in 2017: "I feel like I'm finally ready to give Affleck's movies a go". The Town is a straight, serious crime drama. It's is done right, but it feels like something seen and done better before."
