As bass guitarist for a garage-rock band, Scott Pilgrim has never had trouble getting a girlfriend; usually, the problem is getting rid of them. But when Ramona Flowers skates into his heart, he finds she has the most troublesome baggage of all: an army of ex-boyfriends who will stop at nothing to eliminate him from her list of suitors.

One of the Edgar Wright’s best. A completely chill movie with its own refreshing style. Great camera work and acting with lots of fun and good music. Don’t watch Baby…

Forty-year-old Andreas arrives in a strange city with no memory of how he got there. He is presented with a job, an apartment – even a wife. But before long, Andreas notices that something is wrong. Andreas makes an attempt to escape the city, but he discovers there’s no way out. Andreas meets Hugo, who has found a crack in a wall in his cellar. Beautiful music streams out from the crack. Maybe it leads […]

A heavily philosophical black comedy. You still with me? OK. Shown in a cold Scandinavian style and slow pace, this might be boring, but it’s all about style and idea.…

We had a smart and a bit weird Christianity teacher, who played this movie during a lesson. Technically, we were just old enough to watch it and should have been…

I was quite young when I saw this in a cinema. Expected an adventure, got a serious drama instead, but even then, I didn’t regret for seeing this movie. I…

Harold Crick is a lonely IRS agent whose mundane existence is transformed when he hears a mysterious voice narrating his life.

Just like Uncut Gems with Sandler, this is the only movie with Ferrell I loved. It’s well-acted, not empty and has a successful mix of genres that not many movies…

An Innuit hunter races his sled home with a fresh-caught halibut. This fish pervades the entire film, in real and imaginary form. Meanwhile, Axel tags fish in New York as a naturalist’s gofer. He’s happy there, but a messenger arrives to bring him to Arizona for his uncle’s wedding. It’s a ruse to get Axel into the family business. In Arizona, Axel meets two odd women: vivacious, needy, and plagued by neuroses and familial discord. […]

Hollywood’s rules don’t mean much for Kusturica and he stays true to his own style. A wild Balkan comedy in the Arizona? That’s right.

As you see in this site, I like weird movies. But when it comes to The Lord of the Rings, I have to be with the majority and say, yah,…

King Arthur, accompanied by his squire, recruits his Knights of the Round Table, including Sir Bedevere the Wise, Sir Lancelot the Brave, Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot and Sir Galahad the Pure. On the way, Arthur battles the Black Knight who, despite having had all his limbs chopped off, insists he can still fight. They reach Camelot, but Arthur decides not to enter, as “it is a silly place”.

I’ve never expected a 1975 movie to look this fresh. It rivals and tops many modern comedies. It’s intelligently stupid and hilarious, which is quite an achievement of the director.…

Liam wakes from a car crash with no memory of who he is. As he makes his way into town to look for help, he finds only dead bodies, all with strange pale eyes. Liam’s first assessment is that a virus is present in the air, but he soon discovers the horrible truth: anyone who comes within a 50-foot radius of him dies instantly.

A very well-made sci-fi drama keeps the tension until the very end, and then, when the mystery has to be unfolded and many other movies fail, this one delivers an…
