  • Lo impossible

    Yet another feel-horrible tale of lucky people in a tragedy.

  • The Avengers

    It was too hot to think today, so I watch these Avengers, and not the other, more interesting, film with Sean Connery in a Teddy Bear costume.

  • Magic Mike

    Beefcakes are sensitive people too, beneath those massive layers of muscle.

  • Síndrome de Estocolmo

    A scathing satire of Portuguese society. The script writer was a classy troll, and the fact that this was greenlit by the biggest broadcast network only makes it even funnier.

  • Mirror Mirror

    Another Snow White adaptation, but fun and colourful.

  • Jagten

    A great film for our times. Paranoia leads to witch hunts which lead to wrecked communities. A great companion piece to Doubt.

  • Argo

    Plain old CIA propaganda, with a touch of Hollywood trademark self-deprecation. Feels like U-571. Like everything CIA pumps out, it includes prominently that wall with a star for each KIA agent.

  • Red Dawn

    North Korea invades California. Using HUMVEEs. What?

  • The Dark Knight Rises

    FFS, one of the worst endings I have ever seen. Batman is prepared for everything, but truly everything? All the fuss about making sacrifices for the people to naught, since the Bats wins everything in the end.

  • House at the End of the Street

    Just another crap horror film. It would have directly to the bargain bin, but Jennifer Lawrence became a bankable star right at the same time.

  • Spring Breakers

    The missing Saints Row 3 adaptation, with some introspection casually thrown into the mix.

  • Chronicle

    Teens find a hole with a superpowers-granting machine and have to deal with the fallout of being too immature for the power they wield. Pretty interesting take on the superhero genre.

  • Skyfall

    The Bond origin story that no one was pining for.

  • Seven Psychopaths

    Meta film in which Martin McDonaugh eviscerates himself, being impersonated by Colin Farrell.

  • Videovigilância

    An ultra depressing film about lowlife Blockbuster Clerks / drug dealers that bite more than they can chew and get their lives kicked down a notch.

  • Jorge

    Standard “drugs are bad” flick. Despite being about heroin addiction, everybody is happy, and after a brief “Kum ba yah” all is good.
