  • The Devil Wears Prada

    Whoring out is the only way to be someone in life

  • Breaking and Entering

    Hipster cheats his wife thrice, while ignoring her autistic kid, gets away with it with passionate kisses.

  • Saw III

    Yet another formulaic sadistic gorefest. I almost sawed some logs while watching this.

  • Mission: Impossible III

    I fell asleep thrice while watching this.

  • Rocky Balboa

    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

  • The Pink Panther

    Cyclists falling over: The Movie.

  • The Wicker Man

    The other Bee Movie, equally as hilarious. A classic Nic Cage romp.

  • Paprika

    Even man-child Fritz Haber deserves love.

  • Casino Royale

    The one where the franchise grows the beard. After dozens of formulaic carbon copies, they graduate to the big boys club.

  • Inside Man

    A oddly mainstream Spike Lee joint, but still seeped in his particular style. Gripping from start to finish.

  • Paprika

    Dreams are more addicting than any drugs. They can make a fat child-like slob believe he has a chance with Dr. Chiba, a hyper competent professional woman. And in the end, mind over matter. Suck it, police detective!

  • Snakes on a Plane

    Hyper-sexualized snakes on a 747.

  • Little Miss Sunshine

    The core point is kinda taken away when you find out the little girl wore a fat suit during the film. That’s American cinema for you!

  • The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

    The beginning of the superhero-fication of Fast and Furious.

  • A Good Year

    Ridley Scott’s Provence holiday. That mix between Provençal real estate ads, eulogising sociopaths and casual chauvinism bordering on assault.

  • The Fountain

    Even mainstream Aronofsky is great. The classical themes of Christianity and Environmentalism are always present.

  • Coisa Ruim

    Man is the real monster, and moving from the big city to bumfuck reveals the seething problems lurking beneath the veneer of respectability.

  • Underworld: Evolution

    More gore and guns, with nicer hairy werewolves. The plot thickens a bit, but since nearly all characters die (even the main ones, which come back again), everything is self-contained.

  • The Good German

    Ha, that ironic title. Sounds the opposite, every German is a fucking Nazi, even the Jews married SS.

  • Blood Diamond

    A rough cut from a better film, in need of some lamination and abrasion.

  • Children of Men

    The long shots never get old. Never.

  • The Host

    Just like Parasite (and even Mother), the tone swerves very fast from hilarious comedy to poignant emotional suffering. The USA are the real monsters…
