It’s been a long, long time — high time for some comments of mine about (no so) recently watched material… Film Wonder Woman Yes, it has a woman in the lead — but other than that, it’s just another dull DC superhero movie. Why Him? Again, the trailer was selling it to me, and again:… »»»
Since I have to catch up a bit after my long hiatus, here’s the next batch of my short opinions on some of the stuff that I’ve watched over the last couple of months and weeks. Film Arrival Nice idea, but execution and pacing weren’t my cup of tea. Same goes for the ‘resolution’: Too… »»»
Hello again, long time no see. The following mini reviews are for stuff that I saw around late 2016/early 2017, but for which I didn’t find the time to write down until now.

Plotwise it was a… »»»
Bad time for movies, but TV shows are getting better. Film Joe Nice to see Nicolas Cage again in a more subdued role than what he did in recent films. Other than that, it was a watchable indie drama, but nothing that would hang with me long after the credits rolled. Einer nach dem Anderen/Kraftidioten… »»»
A lot of material has been accumulated over the past months, so here’s already the next post. Film The Lego Movie Rather disappointing, to be honest. Too much meta-jokes, I couldn’t relate to this new world of Lego with all the licensed stuff. Of course, occasionaly the humor of Lord and Miller was to be… »»»
