    Stranger Things if it was a movie and wasn't about 80's nostalgia. A movie about children being this eerie and uncomfortable is truly something. Not for the faint of heart, though it's not exactly a horror film either, it's weird to describe. The child actors are surprisingly great as well! It's a focused and well directed movie from start to finish, there's just that little something missing, though, to make it really stick with me in the long run.

    This fall is a great time for Norwegian cinema, with dream team Eskil Vogt and Joachim Trier both releasing a movie only a month apart.

    Loved the first 40 minutes of this, when it felt like a real martial arts movie within the MCU. That scene on the bus was great, and I loved the entire cast of this movie.

    Then we go to Narnia. Almost literally. I won't go in to specifics, but it just got too "magical" for me. I get it, the MCU and superheroes are already "magical" and "fantastical", but at this point it no longer feels like this stuff happens…

    If you want Tom Cruise as a bad guy, just give him gray hair I guess! Well, it worked. Cruise and Foxx play great against each other, and the dialogue is pretty biting. I don't think the culmination holds up as well as I remembered, but it's still a very decent thriller all in all.

    Not the worst Netflix original action flick, but it's certainly identical to most of them. I think what made me give this three stars and not the typical two for these, is that I liked that you could actually see what was going on in the fight scenes and I liked seeing Mary Elizabeth Winstead kick ass.

    On the side: why are we still doing the "From a producer of...<insert movie>" credit as if that means anything at all?

    This is one of my favorite films, and I loved falling back in love with it.

    Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke have the most genuine chemistry I've ever seen on screen. The way they quckly glance at each other as well as look away from each other is just real. The way they talk is incredibly fluent and natural, even if I could see some people feeling it's a bit too intellectual in a sense, I think they pull it…

    Film Club (week #10) .

    Rewatching this gem of a movie was like making a cup of hot tea and curling up in the couch in a warm blanket, or if you're sick of the blankets of the world, just wrapping up in some bubble wrap. It was nice to be reminded how much I love this movie. The blend of tragedy and comedy, the theme of loneliness and seeking connection are all ingredients that resonated deeply for me.
