    Kan du vissla Johanna?

    ★★★★½

    Lita på mig, en morfar ska jag fixa åt dig. Det lovar jag.

    This is a great shortfilm that many Swedes watch as a tradition every Christmas Eve.

    I’ve seen this film several times over the years but this year I saw a great resemblance of Miyazakis work in the film, especially with My Neighbor Totoro. Kan du vissa Johanna is in my opinion both very comedic and sad at the same time. This is an incredible innocent film which might be one of the reasons why I sense a great recemblence of Totoro in it.

  • Click

    Click

    ★★★★½

    Disguised as one of the shitty Sandler-flicks, this one is actually great and makes me cry every god-damned time. It still has the shitty kid/teen comedy edge to it which would make it out to be as good as the regular Sandler flick. The diffrence between Click and a film like Billy Madison, Big Daddy or The Wedding Singer is the fact that Click has such a strong and good message and knows how to execute it. 

    Really underrated and I definetly recommend this Sandler-flick.

  • Lake Mungo

    Lake Mungo

    ★★★★½

    Excellent film, definetly one of the scariest films Ive seen and based on the avrage letterboxd rating (currently 3,3), this also has to be one of the most underrated films Ive seen. 

     This was disturbing to the point where I had to take a quick break and do something else for a while. The blurry face of the neighbor that sneaked into their house was horrifying and while writing this I have a hard time to think of anything else…

  • Children of Men

    Children of Men

    ★★★★½

    Such a great film! Just now realised the nod to Pink Floyds Animals. The film has two of my alltime favourite scenes. Great piece of action!

    4,5/5 

  • National Lampoon's Van Wilder

    ★★★★½

    Perfection, this is truly where comedy peaked.

  • Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★½

    Top tier action in this film about Ethan Hunt... saving the world? Atleast a third of the world? I lost the plot halfway through the film with a new plot twist introduced every 5 minutes after they capture Solomon. Even though I didnt fully understand what was going on, this might have been the most fun I’ve had in a theatre. Some very impressive action mixed with unintended humor made this a great experience! 

    Im feeling a strong 4/5 to a light 4,5/5! 
    Whats your toughts on Fallout? You’re the best You’re the best! See you next time.

  • (500) Days of Summer

    (500) Days of Summer

    ★★★★½

    Ughhh, that Expectation vs Reality scene is brutal I missed how Summer reacted to the ending of The Graduate in the cinema for my first watch but damn... It hurts to watch this film and I want to feel pity for Tom but he’s such a bitchboy that I really can’t.


    4,5/5 

  • This Is the End

    This Is the End

    ★★★★½

    This Is the End is unquestionably one of my favourite comedies! This film is a pure blast from start to finish. With the perfect, and I really mean the perfect cast; Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and last but not least, a coked out Michael Cera doing some really questionable things.

    A small rant over my never-dying love for Michael Cera
    Even though Michael Cera (SPOILER) dies pretty early on in the film…

  • National Lampoon's Van Wilder

    National Lampoon's Van Wilder

    ★★★★½

     You shouldn't take life to seriously. You'll never get out alive.

    This is one of the best Gross out comedies I’ve seen, if not the best. Early 2000s and late 90s had some of the best college themed comedies in my opinion, with this 2002 one that tops my list! 

    Ryan Reynolds character, Van Wilder, is a college student who hasn’t graduated yet and lives the college dream, without paying his tuition fees since his dad pays them for him.…

    Kids

    Jesus Christ, what happened?”

    This film shows the ambition and social intelligente of contemporary youth, exploring sexuallity in such a heartless way. Even though the characters might be a bit exaggerated they still feel quite realistic as lower income metropolitan kids.

    The characters doesn’t have their parents to look up to, or really any rolemodels at all. They only have each other to impress, and that is the main focus of this film. The characters are misguided kids trying to enjoy…

  • Flower Boy: A Conversation

    Flower Boy: A Conversation

    ★★★★½

    To have seen Tyler growing into the mature man he is today has been a fantastic journey. 

    Who would’ve thought that the 2013 ”WolfTyler, The Creator would bloom out to create something as beautiful and original as Flower Boy? Who would’ve thought that Tyler, that was banned in the UK, Austraila and New Zeeland would become the mature man he is today? Who would’ve thought that Tyler would walk on the red carpet with a chance of bringing home a Grammy for…

  • Cannibal Holocaust

    Cannibal Holocaust

    ★★★★½

    This movie follows a documentary film crew in the Amazon jungle that is eager to get footage of two diffrent tribes battling each other in order to sell the footage. Eventually they start to plot up diffrent violent acts they can film to make it look like the tribes have done it. Their reasoning behind doing this is that their documentary is more intense thus making them more money when they release it.

    With this movie looking so realistic with…
