  1. Mr. Nobody - 8/10 ...and I thought ‘Predestination’ was confusing. But seriously this is a great movie that makes you think and plays with big ideas and executes it really great. It’s mainly about a boy having to make choices after he is set before the task to either live with his mother or father after they separate, and we kind of see all the alternative lives that he could have lived. Also, Jared Leto is awesome.
  2. Okja - 6/10 Inglorious Basterds - 9/10 I guess you either love or hate Quentin Tarantino and his movies. I think he’s brilliant.
  3. The 2004 original of course! But there is a sequel coming this year...
  4. Predestination - 7/10 Wait, what? Looper - 9/10 One of the greatest SciFi movies of recent years. Definitely recommended. The Incredibles - 8/10 Awesomeee! Inside Out - 8/10 Very interesting concept and extremely cute but also really smart execution. Black Panther - 7/10 I liked Black Panther, but I think it is overhyped imo. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. II - 7/10 “I’m Mary Poppins y’all” Bright - 5/10 The concept is unfortunately way better than the execution.
  5. Atomic Blonde - 7/10 Yes, story lacks, but action kicks butt. Including one specific scene that honestly is one of the better action sequences in movie history.
  6. Logan Lucky - 6/10 Spider-Man Homecoming - 7/10 Wonder Woman - 7/10
  7. Baby Driver - 9/10 Edgar my man, doing it again! Definitely one of the year’s best films, by one of today’s most consistently great directors. Excited to see what he puts out next.
  8. War for the planet of the apes - 8/10 It (2017) - 7/10
  9. I looove this beautiful movie! Gave it a 9/10 but thought about a 10/10. I just love it, should rewatch it some time.
  10. Marvel’s The Punisher - 9/10 Heck yea! So good! After a mediocre “The Defenders”, a good but not good enough “Luke Cage” and an absolutely disappointing “Iron Fist”, Marvel and Netflix team up again to create another piece of greatness, being added to the list of Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Jon Bernthal is excellent and really lives the character of a tortured and hopeless man that lost everything and only wants revenge. Marvel, by a few exceptions, makes fantastic choices when it comes to casting in leading roles, like RDJ, Chris Pratt, Chris Evans etc. And with Jon Bernthal Marvel proves it again, that they just know who to cast. Btw off-topic: Marvel’s trailer for “The Avengers Infinity War” set a record for most watched trailer of all time, getting 230 Million views in 24h, which is absolutely insane. I’m hyped.
  11. Blade Runner 2049 - 9/10 Thor: Ragnarok - 8/10
  12. I rated Wakefield 4/10, it was very disappointing to me. I loved the starting concept of it, but it resulted in a rather unexciting film. Of course Cranston was great though. Also I didn’t like the open ending, I didn’t like that he just walked in and we didn’t see anything else, and maybe the concept was good but I just disliked it.
  13. This is a movie I've thought about watching several times, but it always gets such poor reviews.... :( Wait.. are you talking about ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’? Because that one is so good! And the reviews are excellent too.
  14. Watched "Black Mirror" And also "The Handmaid's Tail" Both get a 9/10 from me. Brilliant shows that are so brilliant because they are so close to reality and not unthinkable far from our society. Black Mirror makes incredible, very important and shockingly accurate comments about today's society and how technology influences us. Amazing. The Handmaid's Tail depicts a dystopian future where women's rights are taken away, the constitution is destroyed and the oh so great and free America is everything but free or great. Again, this is such a great show not just because of the truly creative ideas and execution, but because it shows what humans are capable of and the horror of the fact that it isn't all that far away from being reality.
  15. It does, very deserved so. And to be honest the film isn't very graphic, we don't see too much of the cutting off process but the sound design and like I said, knowing that this really happened make it a little much for some. I still recommend the movie though, makes you never forget your pocket knife again. ^^
  16. After watching the documentary in class and seeing actual footage of the event, i wanted to finally watch this movie plus it had been on my watch list for too long anyway. 127 hours - 8/10 If I would have to describe this movie with one word, it'd probably be "Experience". It's not just a movie, it's an experience and the knowledge that the events actually took place, that this isn't even just based on something but is the actual true story of Aron having to amputate his arm in order to survive, makes this movie hard to watch for some people. Great performance by Mr. Franco and great directing by Mr. Boyle.
  17. Those two performances alone are sooo impressive. She is such a phenomenal actress and it's a shame she didn't even get nominated for Dolores Clairborne... but lucky she won Misery.
