  • Die Hard

    Die Hard

    ★★★★

    groundbreaking, masterfully paced, thrilling and entertaining the whole film, die hard is one of the greatest action movies ever made. of course, it doesn't escape a few old clichés, though. either way, 4/5 in an action movie is a lot for me. i'd highly recommend it

  • Pretty Woman

    Pretty Woman

    ★★★★

    cheesy as hell, but the cutest thing ever. richard gere and julia roberts were the perfect choice for these roles

  • The Darjeeling Limited

    The Darjeeling Limited

    ★★★½

    well, definitely Wes Anderson at his worst, but that doesn't mean it was bad. the movie is a bit messy and boring in the beginning, but the end is so cute and well-crafted it makes up for those flaws. one thing I was definetly not expecting, though, was the ugly visual aspects of the movie, exactly because it's Wes Anderson's. it was a nice film, either way

  • Sicario

    Sicario

    ★★★½

    a fun watch, but it felt sort of incomplete. i was expecting more from the plot. great directing, score and cinematography, though. worth a watch

  • Brazil

    Brazil

    ★★★½

    amusing and definitely super creative, but too crazy for itself some times. i do imagine, though, that the extreme satire had its purpose, which i couldn't figure out, so i'm not going to descredit the whole film because of that. definitely too long, but it's watchable. a fine movie

    ★★★★½

    jordan peele is the new hitchcock.

  • Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles

    Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles

    ★★★★

    an extremely tough watch, but  an essential one.
    jeanne dielman is a movie that sacrifices entertainment for efficiency and precision. not really my kind of movie, but I greatly admire it and its style. this article dissects well the aspects for which I think this is a masterpiece: Criterion — A Matter of Time: Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles
    ps: god, i love this title

  • Breathless

    Breathless

    ★★

    sexist, pointless, boring, worst protagonist ever… really, I can't name a quality. could some explain to me why this is supposedly a masterpiece?

  • The Hunt

    The Hunt

    ★★★½

    complex screenwriting, effective directing, fabulous acting… this was technically perfect. i enjoyed it a lot, but became kind of detached to the plot throughout the movie and I wouldn't really say it's memorable. either way, it's very well done and pretty entertaining. definitely worth watching.

  • Dogtooth

    Dogtooth

    ★★★

    what the fuck…very intriguing premise and oddly stylish (as expected from lanthimos), but the movie is so restrained in its plot's boundaries it easily gets dull and shallow. besides, it's rather unpleasant to watch, with very intense sex and violence scenes
    it's a movie i admire but don't like

  • The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

    The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

    ★★½

    watching this movie has left me incredibly tired, so I'm just gonna put random opinions here

    - childish writing. I can't remember a line that really added something to the movie
    - CLICHÉ. like, Backyardigans-level cliché. 
    - I actually started counting the minutes whenever someone would die, before they came back. 
    - ridiculously long. within the 3 hours, 1h was melodrama, 1h unnecessary fight scenes and 1h walking. I can't remember watching such a boring movie in quite a long…

  • The Lives of Others

    The Lives of Others

    ★★★

    no big deal. at all. this was incredibly average, considering my expectations due to all the claim it's gotten. a bit too long, but it's entertaining enough for a 3
