• Kill Boksoon

    Kill Boksoon


    Some really well choreographed and filmed fighting scenes, and some filler stuff in between them, but honestly after 7 movies in a week it was the perfect movie to end my Berlinale experience.

  • Inside



    When in doubt, just have your character literally write the point you're trying to make on the wall, and maybe have him say it out loud in voice-over at the same time.

  • And the King Said, What a Fantastic Machine

    And the King Said, What a Fantastic Machine


    Interesting documentary about our relationship with images and videos throughout their history. Kinda loses a bit of steam towards the end by getting lost in the internet videos rabbit hole, but it gets its point across well and is very entertaining nonetheless. Should absolutely be shown in school to increase media literacy.

    They gotta give a fat raise to the publicist who campaigned this Shudder original piece of garbage all the way to the Berlinale because wtf?!?

  • BlackBerry



    Like if The Social Network was filmed like The Office with some stylish editing thrown in the mix.

    The cast and crew obviously had a fun time making this and it shows, actor-director Matt Johnson has one of the funniest on-screen presence ever, he drew the most laughs out of this star-filled cast.

  • White Plastic Sky

    White Plastic Sky


    Gorgeous visuals, a mix of rotoscope and other animation techniques, bring this post-apocalyptic cautionary tale to life. Raises interesting ideas and does what few other futuristic sci-fi movie dare to do: set the action outside of New York City.

  • Werewolf by Night

    Werewolf by Night


    I appreciate Marvel's willingness to branch out into other genres, but putting a black and white filter over some clearly digital footage with modern framing composition and filled with the usual MCU-style action stunts and cgi does not make this feel anything like a 1930's horror film.

  • Bodies Bodies Bodies

    Strongest character was the iPhone battery that lasted an entire night with the flashlight on

  • Alienoid



    Advanced aliens who shoot lasers battle it out with present-time robots and gun-armed humans while also going back in time to a medieval Asia to fight people who use swords and magic. Yeah. It's a wild ride!

    If you couldn't tell by the synopsis, this movie isn't exactly high art, but it's a very entertaining blockbuster that juggles humor and action well, although with a plot that is very convoluted at times. The charismatic performances of Ryu Jun-Yeol and Woo-bin…

    Oh you mean those gravity-defying tigers weren't real? 😢

    Apollo 10½: A Space Age Childhood


    Crazy how Netflix funded and produced a great Richard Linklater movie, his best work in years, and then did absolutely zero marketing for it.

  • The Batman

    The Batman


    I haven't kept up with superhero movies in the last few years, but I have to say this is easily my favorite one since at least Guardians of the Galaxy all the way back in 2014.

    This film just has a great atmosphere that stems from the confidence in Matt Reeves' direction, aided by a great use of sound design and music, as well as an impressive work by DOP Greig Fraser who uses shadows and silhouettes to create an…
