|65 48%||She's Gotta Have It (1986) - Dec 04, 2019
"Entertaining and not without its charm, but ultimately a bit simple. Spike Lee sure is on message though!"
|50 23%||The Great Gatsby (2013) - Dec 04, 2019
"Sacrifices substance for style, just lining up one party scene after another. Even DiCaprio turns in a listless performance in Luhrmann's hands."
|75 75%||Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003) - Dec 01, 2019
"Technically a lot weaker than I remembered it, and the dialogues are ridiculous even for what they strive to be. But there's not many a dull moment, a fun soundtrack, and the last fight scene is just gorgeous!"
|65 48%||La prière (2018) - Nov 30, 2019
"Interesting setting, but rehashes clichés, stays rather superficial and prefers to show gimmicks rather than actual character development - when everybody is sharing thoughts about their time together in the end, I was wondering why I wasn't shown all of that."
|80 86%||The Irishman (2019) - Nov 29, 2019
"Incredibly ambitious, and pulls it off with ease. Barely a dull moment in a film of over three hours. The cast is as good as the names make it sound too - what the fuck has Joe Pesci been doing the past ten years??"
|80 86%||Parasite (2019) - Nov 20, 2019
"Some of the jokes and metaphors are a bit too obvious, and it keeps going a bit too long at the end, but the storytelling is fresh and captivating. Somewhat surprising choice by Cannes still - although in a lot of ways this of course is the love child of the previous two winners, Square and Shoplifters."
|50 23%||The Butterfly's Dream (2013) - Nov 16, 2019
"Pretty good production value for a Turkish movie, but otherwise all the depth and interest of your average mainstream movie."
|35 10%||Brother Bear (2003) - Nov 10, 2019
"Decent message, but a terrible collection of clichés. And man, I hope Phil Collins didn't get paid for that music?"
|70 61%||Pulp Fiction (1994) - Nov 05, 2019
"Entertaining, but rather simple - and the never-ending dialogue of the last scene is just a total turn-off."
|55 29%||You Were Never Really Here (2017) - Nov 05, 2019
"The first time I watched it, I didn't like it, but I was totally drunk, so I figured I'd try again. Still doesn't work for me - it feels like nothing really is happening (both in terms of story and character)?"
