Film Freak - 631 Film Ratings

Location: Germany

Bio: I try to add a mini-review to every ranking, without knowing any of the narratives from the unreliable IMDB reviews.
5 stars (100): Excellent (my top picks)
4 stars (80+): Very good (enjoyable multiple times: a full package of great stuff)
3 stars (60+): Good (can be enjoyed once: some parts are great)
2 stars (40+): Mediocre (gets dull and boring)
1 star (20+): Horrible (really pissed me off)

-> Protagonist(s) + Style + Score + Suspense/Momentum + Overall Feeling

I'm beginning to go down harder on movies that I can't sit through. This is an instant ticket to mediocrity.

"Absolutely riveting; beautifully filmed and detailed. So many stunning and perfectly captured moments."
80 89% Bone Tomahawk (2015) - May 03, 2017
"I was immediately captured by the short summary - and I was not disappointed! This film unfolds precisely as it should. There is a long sequence where nothing really is happening, and it is fantastic to take in the atmosphere. If you are interested in a tense, gut-wrenching western/horror, try this one."
70 73% Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975) - Aug 30, 2019
"Haunting melodies, gruesome nature, and a touch of beauty. A good slow-burning mystery."
90 96% Heat (1995) - Feb 01, 2017
"Rarely seen coolness and style."
90 96% Upgrade (2018) - Aug 31, 2018
"What a feast. Everything is on point: great protagonist, nice atmosphere and score, driven by an efficient story. -- I wouldn't even mind if this was 2 hours longer."
80 89% Ivy (2015) - May 11, 2019
"I love it! An intricate, mysterious and mind-enhancing trip."
80 89% A Brighter Summer Day (1991) - Mar 21, 2018
"This went by rather quickly. Reminds me of "The Best of Youth", but this film here is more polished and coherent than it. The scenery is so completely natural that it just pulled me in. Many great, memorable characters and scenes."
80 89% The New World (2005) - Jan 20, 2020
"Nothing beats Terrence Malick. Stunning, meditative and enticing as always."
