Bio: "When the movie is over and the movie goers have left en masse, the only sound you hear is the bang of chairs returning to their upright position"
...Then somewhere perhaps in a dark room, or in a flood of light returning to the living room, or with a flickering match in the belly of a whale, a laptop opens or a screensaver is dissolved. There I sit and expel my delight, my frustration, my indifference or any other subtle concoction of ambivalent and debilitating emotions into the glowing screen. A movie critic I am not, however like some sort of show-and-tell pride I hope that you are appeased by the little petrified morsels I have dug up from expeditions under the house. I enjoy sharing within this feedback community of other trout-people. Yell me any recommendations from your rooftop. Also, Luftwaffe.

"From this film I get the impression that the US is one hell of a sexually repressed nation."

"George Lucas: “I’m going to destroy a film universe I created in the 70s with prequels.” Ridley Scott: “Hold my beer.”"
60 25% Scream 2 (1997) - Aug 02, 2019
"This is the one that got all meta at the movies right? Scream poked fun at the horror/slasher genre all while writing itself into it as a key player. Its self-awareness is cute and all, but at the end of the day this is more of the same."

""I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate..." "I've seen The Holy Mountain." "Mother of God! Time to die.""

"Sometimes I crave to search for and view films with a reputation for being complete and utter garbage. Sometimes I'm a total idiot."
75 61% The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) - Mar 31, 2019
"A bit of a strange beast. Uneven and sometimes tedious the segments succeed and fail to varying degrees. But westerns do make for mighty fine storytelling, so saddle up with your partner and find a story you like."
40 8% Taken 2 (2012) - Feb 25, 2019
"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome aboard your subpar action film script for the evening, as we climb slowly through the plot and dreary dialogue we hope you enjoy the 30-million-quick-cut action sequences our serving director has on offer for you today. Short answer: no."
80 73% Donnie Brasco (1997) - Feb 22, 2019
"A competent mob film. Depp did well for Depp, but perhaps it shouldn’t have been Depp to begin with. Pacino was a good choice. The film tries a mob story without as much rose-coloured Hollywood glitz, but that makes the dialogue, characters and casting even more crucial, which doesn’t always come off here. Pistone’s real life story is pretty cool though."
80 73% The Hateful Eight (2015) - Feb 22, 2019
"The score is for Tarantino doing well at being Tarantino and making the whole thing ooze with Tarantino-ness. And for Leigh, Russell and Goggins’ performance. The rest when unpackaged is a bumpy ride of pacing, script, acting and unsatisfying violence issues. I have a problem with a western setting for “coolness” factor when there is nothing that really keeps the screenplay from being transported to another time. Like the violence, they both have more impact when they have more purpose."

"Riveting film. I fell asleep at some point, woke up and fuck all had happened."
