|55 23%||Hugo (2011) - Oct 12, 2019
"Insipid pedestrian film. You are really scraping the bottom of Scorsese's filmography here."
|90 74%||The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) - Oct 12, 2019
"I have to eat my hat now: the old fart still can make movies."
|90 74%||Close-Up (1990) - Oct 05, 2019
"It's like some of those great books that, even though you enjoy them genuinely, you have to force yourself a bit to continue. It's demanding, in other words. I would probably appreciate it even more if I could understand Persian and didn't have to read subtitles."
|70 38%||Kagemusha (1980) - Oct 05, 2019
"Kagemusha had no excuse for not being great, so I'm gonna be hard on it. The basic plot is elegant and promises a psychologically intense experience. Unfortunately, the realization is not up to it. Even the dramatically relevant scenes lack some backbone, and these are so diluted with irrelevant generic epic stuff you are hardly awake to really catch them. The Oda Nobunaga related historical references (as well as the acting) are distracting and annoyingly scholar. "
|95 82%||Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974) - Oct 03, 2019|
|30 11%||Alien: Resurrection (1997) - Sep 29, 2019
"I remember, when this crap was just about to be released, seeing interviews with its creators stating it would be somewhere between the first and the second films in the franchise, tone-wise, only scarier (Facepalm). "
|65 32%||Polyester (1981) - Sep 29, 2019
"Intentionally of not, it induces a rather philosophical state of mind in the viewer. What makes us spend our precious time watching movies and even pay for that? Good acting, interesting story, big screen, surround sound, 3D? Polyester has none. It has Odorama: is't it the most (or maybe the least) subtle joke on the technological progress in cinema? Polyester fascinates with its total and desperate emptiness. It's a lonely sad retarded child of a movie that no other movies want to play with. "
|10 6%||Bloodsucking Freaks (1976) - Sep 29, 2019
"This is the kind of a movie you tell yourself halfway through "I must be really sick to watch this, don't I have better things to do". I actually turned it off to watch Cannibal Holocaust instead (which appeared to me this time as a lavishly produced adventure film/philosophical fable with Oscar-worthy performances and direction). "
|75 47%||Parasite (2019) - Sep 22, 2019
"Korean directors sure have cool sounding names. Their talent is overpraised though. This one is solid entertainment, I guess, though its attempts at slapstick are annoyingly awkward. It looks good on a big screen and unlike most films today it really takes advantage of the cinemascope format. But try to compare it to real masterpieces like Claude Chabrol's La ceremonie (similarly themed), and you'll see how blunt it is. And "La ceremonie" didn't even get Best Film Cesar in France back then. Sad."
