The Fate of the Furious 2017

What’s wrong with The Fate of the Furious? For starters, the movie doesn’t quite know whether it wants to be too serious or to funny, and it comes out as a mixed bag… Continue reading

Suicide Squad 2016

Suicide Squad is the second big superhero movie from DC to come out this year. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice came out in march and was not really good. This movie had… Continue reading

X-Men: Apocalypse 2016

Trying to top the last big success with X-Men: Days of Future Past seemed a little too hard for Bryan Singer. After giving us three very good X-Men movies with X-Men (2000), X2… Continue reading

Captain America: Civil War 2016

This is the third standalone Captain America-movie and the second from The Russo-brothers (who also made Captain America: The Winter Soldier in 2014) and this movie is a triumph. I was really bummed… Continue reading

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016

Finally the Batman v Superman movie is here and boy it’s a mess. One of the main problems with this movie is that too many new characters are introduced. We have Ben Afflecks… Continue reading

Star Wars: The Force Awakenes 2015

Out with Lucas and in with Abrams, a very good decision. J.J Abrams managed to resurrect the Star Trek franchise with Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) and has now… Continue reading

Spectre 2015

This is the 24th James Bond film (if you dont count the unofficial movies Casino Royale from 1967 and Never Say Never Again from 1983) and probably the last with Daniel Craig as… Continue reading

Fant4stic 2015

This is the fourth live-action Fantastic Four movie based on the marvel-comic and is one of the worst superhero-movies I’ve seen lately. Conflict on set between the director (Josh Trank) and the studio… Continue reading

Furious 7 2015

This is the seventh fast & furious-movie (If you can’t tell by the title), and by now it feels like they are stretching it. James Wan is replacing Justin Lin as director, but… Continue reading

Terminator Genisys 2015

So here we are with the 5th Terminator-movie. Once again without James Cameron behing the wheel as director. This time it’s Alan Taylor, known for one of the worst Marvel-movies Thor: The Dark… Continue reading

Eraser 1996

This is a quite decent action- movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Even though the plot seems so easy and the action-scenes are a little over the top, Arnold still keeps you interested in the… Continue reading

Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

Mad Max: Fury Road is probably one of the best action-movies to come out in the last decade. I have not yet seen the original Mad Max trilogy starring Mel Gibson but I… Continue reading

This is the first of three films which are based on The Hobbit, a book by J.R.R Tolkien (who also wrote Lord of the Rings) Considering all the problems this movie-project have had… Continue reading

The Expendables 2 2012

This is a movie with almost ridiculously bad dialouge, terrible acting, average CGI-effects and a plot that does not give you a hole lot to deal with. But you do not watch The Expendables… Continue reading

The Dark Knight Rises 2012

I had very high expectations for this movie and went into the theater and tried to block away all the movie reviews and critics of this movie. Christopher Nolan has really impressed me… Continue reading

The Avengers 2012

After the Marvel had build up the expectation with a series of single superhero-movies (The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America), it was finally time to assemble all… Continue reading

Ran 1985

After seeing some of Kurosawas famous movies, like Seven Samurai (1954), Rashomon (1950) and Yojimbo (1961), I was really looking forward to Ran. Ran is an over 2 and a half hour long… Continue reading
