Comedy, Drama

The Grand Budapest Hotel tells of a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars and his friendship with a young employee who becomes his trusted protégé. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting, the battle for an enormous family fortune and the slow and then sudden upheavals that transformed Europe during the first half of the 20th century.

I see how Wes Anderson wanted to repeat the success of Moonrise Kingdom and how this movie had a lot of potential. But the main problem is that the story…

Commercial airline pilot Whip Whitaker has a problem with drugs and alcohol, though so far he’s managed to complete his flights safely. His luck runs out when a disastrous mechanical malfunction sends his plane hurtling toward the ground. Whip pulls off a miraculous crash-landing that results in only six lives lost. Shaken to the core, Whip vows to get sober — but when the crash investigation exposes his addiction, he finds himself in an even […]

A serious movie. And also boring. I get that alcoholism is bad, but repeating the same thing for the half of a movie isn’t going to make an impact. Other…

Science Fiction, Drama

In a near-future Britain, young Alexander DeLarge and his pals get their kicks beating and raping anyone they please. When not destroying the lives of others, Alex swoons to the music of Beethoven. The state, eager to crack down on juvenile crime, gives an incarcerated Alex the option to undergo an invasive procedure that’ll rob him of all personal agency. In a time when conscience is a commodity, can Alex change his tune?

I find this to be hyped way too much. OK, it’s stylish and original, but doesn’t tell anything new, is over-dragged and pretentious to a level of pseudo-art.

An FBI agent teams with the town’s veteran game tracker to investigate a murder that occurred on a Native American reservation.

I like slow movies if they have a reason to be so. Seems like this one is slow just to look serious, also having too much drama of same kind…

Los Angeles, 1969. TV star Rick Dalton, a struggling actor specializing in westerns, and stuntman Cliff Booth, his best friend, try to survive in a constantly changing movie industry. Dalton is the neighbor of the young and promising actress and model Sharon Tate, who has just married the prestigious Polish director Roman Polanski…

Just terrible. Looks like Tarantino wanted to make a movie without scenario just to pay the homage to 1970s. And he succeeded in recreating the style and atmosphere, but a…

A family is forced to live in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound.

It will be more interesting if I also write about movies I hate. These will not be the obviously bad ones, and so is this movie. People like it because…

A mother’s last wishes send twins Jeanne and Simon on a journey to Middle East in search of their tangled roots. Adapted from Wajdi Mouawad’s acclaimed play, Incendies tells the powerful and moving tale of two young adults’ voyage to the core of deep-rooted hatred, never-ending wars and enduring love.

Extremely overrated movie. Slow, boring and has a lot of forced drama. The main reason for the international acclaim is the ending which plays a trick on a sensible social…
