Elena Undone
(2010)

Ugh....
I think that I will forever be stuck with one question in my mind...

How could the same director produce such a good movie,movie very well done,like The Perfect Ending,but before that and after that make a string of bad,hardly believable movies,such as this one for example...

What did I waste my time again on 😑😑😑

Bloomington
(2010)

Ugh :(
The score this movie has is undeserving...

Why did I do myself a disservice of wasting time on this one I will never understand. But unfortunately this type of mistake has to be made from time to time 🙄😒😒😒

Girl Walks Into a Bar
(2011)

Wow wow wow wow
This was such a nice,unexpectedly nice surprise!

Storyline,cast chosen...just wow! Time well spent!

Snapshots
(2018)

Beautiful...
It was a truly beautiful film in overall,in every aspect!

Death and Nightingales
(2018)

Was worth watching for Skelly
Ann Skelly really gave such a performance!

I m not for period drama but for her acting itcwas really worth investing time.

The Undoing
(2020)

Left speechless
Wow! I dont know should I say more...

Now I understand why it is praised so!

Magnificently done in every aspect!

Vita & Virginia
(2018)

Worth one's time...
I cannot say that I didnt like the movie. Usually not many movies managed to havey utter attention like this one did,from start till the end,so I guess it says I liked it.

Debicki was brilliant! And I think it is not enough of a praise for her performance.... But brilliant and compelling is close enough.

But it was sad to see that what took away from the movie to garner the same praise was the Arterton's performance... She didnt find her footing (or so it seemed) until the second half of the movie. At first she was so bland,nonexisting... But then she improved. Unfortunatelly not on time,in my opinion... I guess the casting should have had been better done,but alas...

As for the others...every other role was from my perspective very well fulfilled and I like that the attention had been paid to so many little things which can end up spoiling a good project. So 👍

The Nevers
(2021)

True fact-One of the best shows ever created!
Story line, an array of magnificent badass women characters, an array of in general very interesting characters, unpredictability, mystery , the best fighting scenes in the history of television, I think also one of the characters def the most mysterious character ever created, .... I dont know what next to put on the list because there is just soooo much!

The Nevers is going to be,if it already isnt,one of the greatest tv shows ever created,in every single sense! I mean it! And I say it as an avid tv show watcher!

Go watch it ,you wont be disappointed! Nope!

Mortal Kombat
(2021)

To be comoletely honest...
One cannot take a stab at this MK movie...

And I say that as someone who is not a fan of fighting movies and superhero character typ3 movies because all of them end up shallow and stupid, but I also say this as a fan of MK!

So, the movie was very well done from the very beginning, first with visuals, second with the back storyline. Fighting scenes also amazing. I tried to find the flaw in the movie so I can take a stab at it, and write that it, like all of the previous bad MK movies, ruined my fav video game of all times. But this time I cannot say that, I cannot do that. I cannot say that the movie couldnt have been slightly better, it surely could have had been, but I can also find few flaws which didnt cause the chink in the movie in overall. I rarely nowadays enjoy a movie because movie makers actually do not put so much effort into making movies of any kind... But this time I say I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Now, the two flaws I found were a bad acting at one point and some pointless dialogue... But it was like 10 seconds out of the entire movie. And the second was, which made me very sad, nonexistence of the Earth princess Kitana in this one. She ahould have appeared instead of that frivolous monster Mileena. I MEAN for the very FIRST time in the MK franchise we have a more than a decent movie and there is no Kitana? 😕

Anyway, very enjoyable movie and so worth going to cinema to watch it!

And all of you mist admit that Goro looked amazing and that in the end even Mileena didnt disappoint turning into the monster she is.

I hope that all of the MK fans are happy with this movie.

The World to Come
(2020)

And again I was wowed!
To be honest, to find 2 good lwl movies coming one after another was the mission impossible... Until now... I thought that nothing would have had given Ammonite run for its money any time soon, but I was proven wrong by the World to Come and I am so glad!

I'm a picky movie audience... And always scaredto have my hopes upcoz nowadays movies are just... Well, not to my satisfaction and rarely can any hold my attention.

But The World to Come had it straight from the very beginning, unwaveringly, up to its very end! It was that good!

I can only praise it, the overall execution in its every aspect, and recommend it.

Goes to my favorites list!

Rear Window
(1954)

Wow
Thanks to the amazing movies like this one I truly think of watching old era movies because every single one of them is enjoyable, unlike modern ones.

The Duke of Burgundy
(2014)

Ugh
All due respect to Knudsen, she almost saved the movie and it was only worth watching for her. However movie as a movie... Waste of time! Complete waste of time.

A Glitch in the Matrix
(2021)

Waste of time and seriously sick...
Yup this is not only unscientific thong but empty blablaing from few people who believe in the simulation theory. I m not saying that in discriminative manner but objective. Nothing worth watching for for even a second.

Ah-ga-ssi
(2016)

Fabulous
To say I was almost left speechless is understatement! We need more movies like these! Well... Now I regret all this time spent not giving Japanese and Korean production enough time and space in my life. This is a must watch! At least in my opinion!

No wonder it took so many awards!

Portrait de la jeune fille en feu
(2019)

Boring
If one were allowed to submit the review with one word BORING would have been more than enough.

I know the art afficionados might be just hating on me now, but hell this was boring for those 2 hours and some. And for all those hoping to see a blossoming of a relation between two beings were robbed of that experience.

Boring exactly like a painting one puts up on a wall and stare at one and the same scene till the day one dies...

Boring to tears!

Ammonite
(2020)

Nice surprise
This is a rare opportunity that I am, happy to leave a review... Although I know review is not something objective, relying on ones own proclivities...

First and most important, the lesbian community truly has nothing to comolain about after this movie. If they do... It will be so wrong!

Although the movie was more silent than not, the silence was very well used by the actresses... What hasnt been said was very well shown...

Choice of music also very well done...

I guess the producers wanted to make a romance movie and in that they excelled... And it was nice to see that things for almost the first time if not the first time were shown openly and NOT (and that is the difference and where the beuty lies) from the perspective of male gaze.

Fiona Shaw was a very good addition to accentuate and balance things out...

I cannot say more but that I truly am taken in a positive way by the movie and if it doesnt get nominated and even take away many Academy and other awards, it will be a shame...

Akuma no Riddle
(2014)

Urgh
This anime doesnt even have the point of its own existence. Stupid stupid stupid! I v lost precious time watching it!

Stray
(2019)

Hmph....
Well.... To be honest... Thw movie had a potential... From a rather lovely and ok cast, through story, even effects... It was not just a cheap chip off or something... Effort was made... But in the end the editing, cutting, piecing things together did the damage, I d say... Something was lacking and edit was, I assume from my stand point, bad, so... But the material was good and somethi g could have had been done with all of it to make the movie truly compeling instead of letting people looking forward to the end so just to be done with watching the movie...

Strange Days
(1995)

Well... Wow...
Ok this movie had some truly, truly weak points, but it also had some truly strong ones!

Except Juliet Lewis, she was totally offpoint from start to finish and her acring is an example of a try bad acting. They should have hired some better actress for sure!

Everything else, when you think of moxing ip those bad and good points of the movie you do get a very solid movie worth watching in the end!

Of course seeing Angela kicking ass is always a cherry in top.

And the knife in the back scene - an amazing symbol of how, when seemingly bad things happen in your life they are actually at your advantage and there to help you and get you toward something better in life, so to speak to save you.

Talking Head
(1992)

Well well
This was truly worth watching! Take on the destiny of existence of the movie industry? Very good idea and very well presented, in my opinion.

2040
(2019)

Should be...
Everyones message to everyone, all the time!

Lets hope humanity will change for good so we can save ourselves!

Papurika
(2006)

Nice
Very nice piece of surrealist movie. Good in, an insane way, and very interesting! Just be careful... Makes you question your own reality and the nature of reality itself ^^

Marudukku sukuranburu: Asshuku
(2010)

Worth watching
Very well done in every aspect. The most important - somw important human life and society related issues are tackled, and important questiones asked throughout the anime. I liked it.

Ghost in the Shell Arise: Border 3 - Ghost Tears
(2014)

Ouch, I too agree!
Definitely the killing of Kusanagi's character! Direct attack! So sad! Thos may be right to watch for those who hadnt followed Ghost in the Shell since its beginnings, but to the faithful followers Arise in general lack in quality and yeah this episode is almost a spit on Kusanagi :-(
