Bio: Cinema is my biggest passion... The only thing in the whole world I am able to love! (Yes, I love the films with low rankings as well.) And the movies I've seen are my fortune. I know they will all die with me, therefore you may think that my fortune is absolutely worthless. Even so, I've seen them all so they are a valuable part of me. And I grow more with each part...

78 82% Thieves' Highway (1949) - Oct 12, 2021
"If it wasn't for that preachy, happy-go-lucky ending, Thieves' Highway could be a masterpiece. Though, it's still a consistently wonderful piece of film-noir. Jules Dassin handles the cast immaculately and gets the best out of them. Every element of the genre is patched together exuberantly. Well worth seeing, though be warned, you may not wish to eat any apples for the rest of your life!"
64 46% Class of 1999 (1990) - Oct 12, 2021
"What a bold, crazy sequel! Class of 1999 could be the visual equivalent of a famous saying: "Desperate times call for desperate measures!" I hate when sequels fall into the trap of following suit and end up as a lazy, uninspired imitated version of the original film. But Class of 1999 comes as a surprise. The concept is mind-blowing! I mean, some cyborg teachers kicking some naughty asses, and in return, teenagers are hunting their teachers. How bad could it be?"
30 6% Observe and Report (2009) - Oct 11, 2021
"A comedy that doesn't know the meaning of the word "shame." Obviously, they attempted to make a dark comedy, but it turned out to be an offensive comedy film. What was the meaning of all those racist, sexist and homophobic jokes? Observe and Report has off-limits jokes, but at least they could be somewhat intelligent instead of being a mere representation of a 10-year-old kid's sense of humor. The film's filled with characters that you would want to punch every one of them in the face."
30 6% Rawhead Rex (1986) - Oct 11, 2021
""Get upstairs, fuckface! I can't keep God waiting!" A demon (alternative to God) wakes up from its sleep and starts to murder random people while sparing some of them or hypnotizing the rest of them for the sake of it. Consequently, the protagonist, who happens to be passing by, solves everything miraculously and finds a way to kill this demon. You get the picture. I admire the scene where Rawhead pees on one of his disciples, hence the 30 points, but unfortunately, he is not my type of God."
40 11% Yellowbeard (1983) - Oct 10, 2021
""You think? You'll never kill anyone if you go around thinkin'." Such an awkwardly unfunny movie, despite all the talent involved. A sense of humor similar to Tom Jones takes a lot from the movie. The brilliant actors try to keep things rolling along with their performances, but the incoherent and bare-bones script lies in the way. Unfortunately, you can find more circumstances to giggle at in any average drama compared to Yellowbeard."
53 26% Defendor (2009) - Oct 10, 2021
"Defendor is an inharmonious genre combination. It could be a good action, comedy, or drama by itself but it prefers to be all of them at the same time. The result? Well, after mixing these typically incompatible genres, Defendor turns out to be so slow for an action film, so barren for a comedy, and so uninspiring for a drama. While Defendor is not a dreadful film, and the "home-made superheroes" subgenre remains relatively uncharted territory, none of the facets of the film shines through."
60 38% The Incubus (1981) - Oct 09, 2021
"Surprisingly, for a low-budget film, The Incubus is a good example of well-written, well-acted, well-directed horror cinema with an unfamiliar territory as a bonus. I admit that the pace is painfully slow and characters are underwritten, but it never fails to surprise or keep the audience wondering. As far as oddity goes, The Incubus is in the same ballpark as Rosemary's Baby or Videodrome."
40 11% Panzehir (2014) - Oct 09, 2021
"So virtually a guy plays GTA in god mode. Whenever he is about to die, his health bar regenerates. And enemies don't have any artificial intelligence whatsoever. No one acts according to the situation or their perspective, but how cool it would look on the screen. I loved some of the scenes that resemble a kangaroo fight though."
62 44% Criss Cross (1949) - Oct 08, 2021
"Slightly above average noir, Criss Cross incorporates a gripping opening, ending, a heist and hospital sequence. But the rest of the film is gibberish to a fault. It attempts to be a tragic story of an ill-omened man, but with each new detail added, the film becomes less convincing as a whole. Having said that, as an admirer of film noir genre, I still enjoyed Criss Cross warts and all."
