    The Sadness

    ★★★★½

    In Germany, like in most parts of the world, the pandemic brought out the worst in people.

    A staggering amount of Germans was suddenly okay with marching arm in arm with literal, self-declared Nazis, again and again, loosing themselves in absurd, anti-semitic, hateful theories and demanding the normalisation of the very political viewpoints their parents and grandparents have held when murdering millions of innocents in industrial genocide factories.

    This movie starts like what I call „European Dad Action“. My father would be HOWLING during that car chase early on.

    DNF.

    After coming to an uneasy peace-treaty regarding our opinions about the finale, we wrote down our top ten episodes and re-watched those over the course of…

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Seated next to me in the cinema was a true Tarantino fan. He was about twenty years old, nerdy, visiting the theatre with his friends. He was SO into this movie, it really annoyed me. I don't think, I would have found the humor quite so stupid, hadn't he sat next to me, laughing so hard at every little thing. When Brad Pitt was about to fight Bruce Lee, he excitedly exclaimed "Oh no! He's gonna do it! Amazing!" and…
