    A world without children's voices… . Children of Men is a bleak and violent sci-fi movie soaked with despair and with little hope on the horizon „Even if they discover the cure for infertility, doesn't matter! Too late. World went to shit. Know what? It was too late before the infertility thing happened… !”

    Hi everybody, in 2027 the world resembles a typical post-apocalypse, not necessarily because of nuclear…

    This makes certain multiverse themed projects at Marvel look even worse! Let's not forget that War Of The Worlds created panic in the streets when it was first aired on radio. I knew, while watching, that Calls is just a series and still I got chills down my spine!

    Hi everybody, Calls is something special… in every sense of the word, but first of all you have to know what you…

    Nic f’ing Cage is back! Not that he went anywhere! In Massive Talent, Cage plays a fictionalized version of himself while channeling his most iconic/popular characters to live up to his own legend. Massive Talent is another memorable addition to the actor's unique career, giving us a glimpse into the world of Nic Cage, the man, the meme, the myth. Put the bunny back in the…

    Driving Miss Lulu - Dog is about the approach of two war-disabled ex-soldiers on a classic road trip… but only passionate dog-fans will applaud. What's it gonna be, drama or more of a feel-good comedy? Neither fish nor fowl!

    Hi everybody, no wonder Channing Tatum wanted to make Dog as his directorial debut, because it's arguably his most personal film to date: the buddy adventure…

    The everyday chaos between the big ambitions of a professional career and the big career plans of the parents - North Hollywood is a coming-of-age story set in the skater scene and in the realms of a mid90s - made by skaters for skaters - with strong chemistry (thanks to Vince Vaughn) but weak characterization.

    Wonderfully pleasant self-irony and enjoyable nonsense made a-capella cool again.

    Hi everybody, musicals or musical films can divide viewers' opinions: highly frequented kitschy songs that are warbled again and again in the strangest moments and thus make the plot seem a bit comical. When two enemy gangs threaten each other with weapons but suddenly start a singing battle, or in a traffic jam on the freeway all the drivers suddenly…

    Hi everybody, Nobody Loves You and You Don't Deserve to Exist is first of all one hell of a graphic title and I really didn't know what to expect from it although the power of…

    „1917 - minus the one-shot.“
    (The Two Cineasts)

    Hi everybody, I was very afraid to watch the remake after every single review I heard by this time let me know beforehand that All Quiet on the Western Front had the violent spectacle of Saving Private Ryan, the beautiful dreamy nature shots (despite the grim topic) of The Thin Red Line and the atmospheric burden on our…

    Thank you Wolfgang Petersen!

    Hi everybody, it’s been a while since one of us saw the spectacular film and I honestly remembered it very differently. We must admit it’s the first time we saw this Tv-Mini series version of Wolfgang Petersen’s acclaimed original cinematic film. It was released 4 years after the cinematic release in six parts for German television and it’s just a perfect example for movies that get…

    „An early film by Wolfgang Petersen and an unusual one at that. The Consequence tactfully addresses the issue of intergenerational gay love and set an exclamation point for the LGBTQ community in 1977!”

    The Consequence was considered a scandal when it was released, the political and human climate that prevailed towards homosexuals was already evident when it was first broadcast on…

    „A comedy-action-adventure with romantic borrowings, which on the one hand mocks representatives of the genre, on the other hand follows in the footsteps of, among others, Romancing the Stone.”

    Hi everybody, The Lost City is a genre representative who does little new, but knows exactly what it is: the antagonists are knitted simply, the protagonists are far too heroic…

    Hi everybody, I didn't had any expectations and honestly only watched it out of interest because of the voice cast (I love Karl Urban and Jared Harris) but the film really doesn't have to hide from comparable films from Disney, Illumination or DreamWorks - optically…
