Movie Ratings and Reviews

Synecdoche, New York

it's not an easy movie. symbolic, strong and melancholic.


dark and funny, i've wanted to find a highschool movie like this for a long time.

The Hangover
The Hangover(2009)

you rarely find a comedy this good


for some reason i expected something a little better.. oh well.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

suprisingly good thriller, really. and what a female character! loved her.


i have hard time trying to decide do i like this movie or not. some things i loved, i liked the ending, and one scene touched me greatly. i felt uncomfortable about some things and there were things i didn't like. anyway, interesting.

Shaun of the Dead

pegg & wright are funny to watch, nice.


not a movie you can 'understand'. a mystery, philosophical chain of thoughts, breathtaking visual touch.

Inglourious Basterds

of course i loved it. quentin is my man.

Charlie Bartlett

surprisingly entertaining. now i want some ritalin....

Moonlight Mile

for some reason this movie made me cry like a baby. several times.

Hot Fuzz
Hot Fuzz(2007)

it's so different from what the name and the cover first make you think.


i rarely like movies like this, but cate blanchett is always a pleasure to watch. good in its genre, i'd say. the story also was a lot more interesting than i first thought.

Mysterious Skin

after this movie i felt so much i couldn't even cry. a painful movie.


I just watched this again after few years and it wasn't as good as i remembered. But it's sweet and fun.

Run Lola Run
Run Lola Run(1999)

interesting little movie

The Source: The Story of the Beats and the Beat Generation

having an obsession to bat movement and writers, i of course enjoyed this a great deal. recommended for anyone interested in the beats, an interesting documentary with great performances from johnny depp as jack kerouac, dennis hopper as william burroughs and john turturro as allen ginsberg, my favourite beat.

Napoleon Dynamite

this movie never got so big in finland as i did in states, so it wasn't ruined for me before seeing it. and yes, it really is funny, warm and entertaining movie. nice !

The Ballad of Jack and Rose

i didn't have any expectations. but i loved it. so moving, sad, funny, beautiful. with great actor work from the whole cast. i recommend !

She's So Lovely

more interesting that it seems !

Short Cuts
Short Cuts(1993)

poor man's magnolia. not bad! could've been better. good actors. i especially loved tom waits.

A Love Song for Bobby Long

this one really suprised me ! i liked it a lot.

Fast Food Nation

message quite well deliovered, i think, but i don't see it as an excellent movie.

Weird Science

haha, stupid but entertaining.

Äideistä parhain (Den Bästa av mödrar) (Mother of Mine)

nahh, did nothing special for me. touching, of course. we watched this in class and some swedish parts without subtitles so i had some problems there.. but yeah, anyway.

Slumdog Millionaire

i expected something great, i admit. after all that hype and recommendations..
and yes, it is a good movie. mixture of humor, romance and suspense. but for some reason it just didn't blow my mind off.


horrible and visually stunning. but i really didn't fall in love.

Cidade de Deus (City of God)

amazing cinematography. it was little hard for me to follow sometimes (at least in the beginning of the film) but it's probably just me. visually breathtaking, really.

Vanilla Sky
Vanilla Sky(2001)

i found the idea of this movie suprisingly good. yeah, not bad.


what a load of ridiculous crap. can't blame the movie makers, though, as the original story is so bad. but still

Night on Earth

what a nice movie ! i like jarmusch. and i was quite thrilled to see one of the episodes to be set in helsinki, the city i live in (and which quite rarely appears in movies - at least in good ones)


when you've seen other kevin smith movies, dogma doesn't feel like a good one. quite entertaining still.

Calamari Union

i rarely like finnish movies but this is great and full of attitude.


it's difficult for me to rate watchmen. yeah i loved the soundtrack, the movie was well made and had a lot of fascinating things and good scenes. and still it was too long, had too much and was maybe even too faithful to the original comic. and on the other hand, that's a good thing....and wathcmen is not a bad movie. i probably have to see it again to get a full picture but i don't know if i can sit through every damn scene of the whole three hours again. maybe i'll try.

La Moustache
La Moustache(2005)

i see this movie as a metaphor... but for what, i'm not sure.


a great biopic and a great movie. sean penn is amazing in his charismatic performance. milk touched me personally, for many reasons. but it's more, it's not just a movie about an openly homosexual politician. it's a movie about a man who changed life with his courage.
everybody, go see it.

Romance & Cigarettes

better than i thought. and what a cast! buscemi, sarandon, gandolfini, walken, parker.. lord. i liked the songs, i liked the cinematography. not a great story, but still. i liked it.


this feels like a little meth trip itself. not much of a plot, but fast, crazy and brutal. a lot of black humor. i liked the visual style.

Schindler's List

i didn't quite get into this movie. of course it moved me but still.. ralph fiennes was wonderful.
and it's imature to complain about movie's lenght ? oh, maybe i better remain silent then.

Shi gan (Time)

can we really change who we are ?

The Queen
The Queen(2006)

helen mirren is great here but to be honest - this movie just bored me.

Stranger Than Fiction

better than i thought ! it could have been even better, but neverthless i liekd it. i liked the story and the idea.

Wristcutters: A Love Story

a great movie. i loved the idea and the story. actors were good. nice role from tom waits !
and gogol bordello on the soundtrack was a spot on, i love the band and immediatly figured that the character of eugene is based on eugene hütz.

The Spirit
The Spirit(2008)

well yeah, visually amazing. but after seeing sin city, which actually is a good movie, it didn't help forget that the spirit is bad.

Paranoid Park

visually amazing. little slow, but definately not bad.

The Aviator
The Aviator(2004)

good actor work and quite an interesting story.

Johnny Suede
Johnny Suede(1991)

odd little thing. but interesting, kinda funny and nick cave's role was nice to watch.

28 Days Later

i'd almost call it a masterpiece. not my favorite genre but really suprised me in a good way. well directed, interesting and visually just a-m-a-z-i-n-g.

In Her Shoes
In Her Shoes(2005)

a lot better than i thought, i wasn'ät even interested in seeing it but watched it becvause i was bored. and in the end it was quite touching and not that bad.

Velvet Goldmine

todd haynes i want you to be my best friend.

The Dreamers
The Dreamers(2004)

bold, sexual, elegant, beautiful.


my feelings while watching the film were like:

Burn After Reading

very good cast, i especially loved brad pitt's performance, he often shows a great versatility in his roles. entertaining, witty film which offered nothing very new. but i liked it.

Kissing Jessica Stein

good movie to watch at lonely friday night like this one. i'm ready to admit that i wanted to see it because it was queer cinema. and yeah, i liked the film.

Camp Rock
Camp Rock(2008)

my eyes, they burn

Filth and Wisdom

i didn't expect much. i like gogol bordello's music and the frontman eugene hutz (playing main role in this movie) is a charismatic man, but thought of madonna as a movie maker wasn't very magical to me. but the movie suprised me. i loved it. it would've been nothing without eugene hutz, but with him it was great. i enjoyed, it moved me, it was entertaining and interesting.

Quantum of Solace

i'm not actually interested in bond movies, but my friend wanted to see this so i thought yeah, why not, i feel like going to movies (and next time i can choose the film..). and yeah, quantum of solace didin't give me anything, but i didin't expect it to. it is stylish, sleek and visually good. i liked some little things, and the cast wasn't too bad.

Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2

oh good lord, this is honestly the worst movie i've ever seen. and i've seen many. but yeah, watching it on halloween night with a group of friends, drinking and laughing for its badness.... we somehow managed to watch it from beginning to an end. but it wasn't easy!


i've started to like kevin smith movies, but this wasn't as good as other his films i've seen. anyway, not bad.

Waking Life
Waking Life(2001)

i would've enjoyed the thoughts of this movie and thoughts it made me think even if it was a book or a comic or whatever. i still liked the whole thing, though.
the dialogue, philosophy of this movie was really something brilliant.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

the humor of this movie was perfectly random and hysterical for me, and i enjoyed watching this with my friends.

Iron Man
Iron Man(2008)

robert downey jr was a big reason that made this movie if not very good, but nice to watch- he manages to make tony stark interesting character. it also had good humour and special effects, even though at times it was very corny.

The Seventh Seal (Det Sjunde inseglet)

scary and interesting, strong strong atmosphere.

Ghost World
Ghost World(2001)

movies don't always have to have a plot full of action to be enjoyable. ghost world is a nice story about growing up and finding yourself. great actors. and i really liked the colors of this movie, it was also visually enjoyable for me.

Rain Man
Rain Man(1988)

touching movie, dustin hoffman is brilliant.

The Strangers

nice little thriller.
not often i've seen a good horror movie. this one was actually quite alright, i liked the intensity and the atmosphere. some parts i didin't like, some parts were very cool. i read some reviews here and many seem to think that the ending was cheezy. for me those mormon boys were nice detail.


i seem to have some kind of a theme to watch movies with my favorite rockstars lately... i bet i would have liked this as a kid. now the story didin't feel too great, but still the movie managed to entertain me quite well. mostly because of bowie, but i'll let the fangirlish things unsaid now... expect that... BOWIE.


i got in in my hands first only 'cause of mick jagger, as i'm a big rolling stones fan, but it turned to be very fascinating and modern film. puzzling ending, should watch the whole movie again.


jeffrey wright seems to always be great, it puzzles me that he's not more famous. bowie as warhol was brilliant. i really liked this movie.

Patti Smith: Dream of Life

patti, patti, patti. i love her. if i could be one thing, i'd be like her.

City of Angels

maybe i'm just such a softie, but it touched me and that was enough to make me enjoy it.

Across the Universe

i loved the visuality and the music was good. great symbolism. i love the time, 60's, where the movie is set so i enjoyed it a lot.

Mystery Train

interesting, very jarmusch. the first story of the japanese rockabilly teenagers just was the most fascinating one and after that i just waited them to come back.

Waking the Dead

incredibly touching, good movie.

Evil (Ondskan)

suprised me positively. cruel story about violence which still succeeds to show hope, in friendship and few people's belief in justice.

Chasing Amy
Chasing Amy(1997)

great dialogue, as kevin smith seems to always write. funny, and a good story.

Natural Born Killers

good story, killer soundtrack. i wish quentin had directed this... but still, interesting disturbing film.

Hard Candy
Hard Candy(2006)

very intense, amazing actor work from both, allen page and patrick wilson.

The Dark Knight

this is what movie based on comics should look like, be like, sound like, feel like. great cast, very well directed so even the lenght doesn't ruin the movie. and though everybody knows that heath ledger did something amazing here, i got to say it one more time: his rolework was amazing, really.


overrated - which doesn't mean bad. quite good movie, but nothing as great as i expected after all that hype. recommended for wine lovers.


great movie. very scorsese, violent, long. but full of good acting, robert de niro did amazing job, plot is interesting. very good movie.

Be Kind Rewind

sympathic and sweet.

Clerks II
Clerks II(2006)

again, very entertaining, fun, witty and clever movie.


funny, entertaining, unique, indie.


little underrated - quite good adaptation from the comic. entertaining enough.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

i watched it again and now, now i understand.

Planet Terror (Grindhouse Presents: Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror)

it ain't bad. but i liked deathproof much more.

To Die For
To Die For(1995)

i can't reaööy remember was it really good or bad, it's been so long since i saw it.

The Blues Brothers

music scenes are the best parts, and the whole movie is quite entertaining. and i love blues.

The Man Who Fell to Earth

oh, david. yeah that's prety much everything i have to say about it..

I'm Not There

i had to write new review because this movie has given so much to me it's difficult to explain. i love it, to me it's brilliant. the idea is very fascinating and works, soundtrack is terrific and all the actors do good work. i have to mention cate blanchett makes the most amazing role work i've ever seen and i'm ready to marry her, anytime. no, actually i want to marry her. NOW. i can quote everything she says in this movie from rote memory.
i don't know what bob dylan thinks about this movie, but i think he might appreciate it. movie from one dylanist to another and kind-of-biopic, but still just wonderful movie which i think anybody could love.
todd haynes, it's official. i love you.

Death Proof
Death Proof(2007)

you may say it's pointless or Q has lost his talent but i loved and enjoyed it, quentin is still my man. he respects women in his own special way, he loves movies and making movies with his whole heart and i seriously think he's the best movie maker of this generation.

Boys Don't Cry

shocking, sad, well acted, tragic movie about important thing. hard to watch, but should be watched.

Léon: The Professional

i finally saw it again ! natalie portman and jean reno are both amazing, whole cast is actually good and Léon is well directed. very good movie.

Children of Men

well directed, frightening future-vision. not perfect but interesting.

The Fountain
The Fountain(2006)

heart-wrenching, difficult, beautiful, touching, intelligent, breathtaking. and what a cinematography.


awesome, touching and swinging story with phenomenal leading role, jamie foxx. i recommend, fan of ray charles or not. i didn't know much about him but after seeing this i became sure that i have to start listening his music.
not just music, but the movie is very entertaining and emotional at the same time.

Almost Famous

" They don't even know what it is to be a fan. Y'know? To truly love some silly little piece of music, or some band, so much that it hurts."
so much that it hurst, yes. i related to this movie. it was also very entertaining, nostalgic and full of good music.

Four Rooms
Four Rooms(1996)

clever, witty, little absurd. not for everyone but i liked it. and it had quentin!

The Last Emperor

a little disappointment for me, actually. very long and slow-paced but impressive visually and historically.

Shine a Light

the trailer made my cry. the movie made me smile for 2h 4min. i love rolling stones and Shine a light gets you so near them it was like seeing them live. Visually amazing, sound amazing, directing amazing, Rolling Stones - i don't have words.

The Deer Hunter

long movie with slow pace, but magnificent actor work makes it interesting. the start felt too slow for me, but russian roulette scenes were so well made they hurt to watch.

The Mothman Prophecies

i liked the idea, things like this fascinate me deeply. script wasn't particularly good but quite interesting movie still.

Romeo + Juliet

i love how they speak old shakespeare in modern city. i love the visuality, the strength. some pulp fiction to your shakespeare!

My Own Private Idaho

beautiful movie full of emotions. fascinating cinematography and shakespearish dialogue, sensitive and great actors. unique.


somehow very entertaining and cute.

No Country for Old Men

great, great actors and it has potential, a lot of it. but in the end it's boring. here - i said it. it's intelligent, characters are good and so is cinematography, coen brothers are good filmmakers but somehow this movie just didn't make me interested about it, it didn't blow my mind. it was slow and as i said,little boring. fascinating thing is, how it can be so strong and slow at the same time. i'm still not sure if i like it or not. film critics seem to love it, though.

No Direction Home: Bob Dylan

awesome and long documentary about legendary man of mysteries. maybe not for people who are not interested of bob dylan, but those who are, even slightest, i recommend. he's ultimately fascinating and scorcese really caught atmosphere of 60's and bob's earlier years. contrast between material of really young bob and bob of nowaday talking about his past is brilliant.

A Fistful of Dollars (Per un Pugno di Dollari)

i'm not so into these westerns but.... good music and cool clint.

Mystic River
Mystic River(2003)

great thriller with very strong actor work - especially sean penn is amazing.
i was little too young when i saw it for the first time and got really scared. i just watched it again and it's very powerful.

The Chorus (Les Choristes)

suprisingly good little movie, very touching and beautiful. i liked it a lot, even though we watched it in french class i enjoyed.


touching, weird, good movie. little wicked and original. i expected something different and got very positively suprised.

Disco Pigs
Disco Pigs(2003)

not brilliant maybe but it had its moments and some charm with very touching ending. good idea - but something just.... missed.


this movie broke my heart many times at once. it's full of emotions, desperation, sadness. and you can rarely see movie with so many actors and every one of them does fucking great job. stunning.


i didn't even know about this movie, then my friend said "watch this, it's about brian jones" and i did. because i love rolling stones more than any other band. i find movies about great musicians interesting. "stoned" wasn't particularly a great movie, but it had good sides and i enjoyed greatly watching it because it was about my favorite rock stars. not bad!

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

dark, ironic, very burton, fun. corny maybe and over dramatic but hey, entertaining and twisted. i enjoyed it. musical+blood=win. and depp rocks, again after horrible potc-movies.

Inland Empire

what can i say. oh david, you certainly make me confused. and i can't say that's a bad thing.
one of the most scariest movies i've seen. really, it's usual in lynch movies but particularly this made me feel a lot of fear. one reason is that i watched part of this movie after staying awake for 28 hours but it was quite a trip, inland empire kind of made a weird mix with my half-asleep mind. rest of the movie i watched completely wake but the atmosphere didn't go anywhere.

it's fascinating, it's interesting, it's surreal and full of fear. it's not understandable. but that's not the point.

Mou gaan dou (Infernal Affairs)

really good, great plot and acting. clever.


in its genre a wonderful little movie, so sympathic, simple, funny, clever... movie doesn't need to be 3 hours long and tell about drugs or oil or violence to be good or enjoyable. i liked juno and i think it deserves to be oscar nominee with all those Serious Big Films.

There Will Be Blood

maybe i didn't pay enough attention or something, because i couldn't find the greatness of this movie. yes, daniel day-lewis is awesome but movie was quite slow. i'll watch it again and try to understand better. but at least now i know a little what this oscar-nominee is about.

Dead Poets Society

this is maybe not the greatest movie of all, but i love its theme and it made my weep like a baby. lovely film.

As Tears Go By

not best of wong kar wai's movies, but still interesting and beautiful with fine music choices and actor work. i truly believe wong kar wai doesn't know how to make bad movies.

Happy Together (Chun gwong cha sit)

wong kar wai, i want you to know i adore you. i've seen many of your movies and still, again, fortunately, you broke my heart with HAPPY TOGETHER. thank you.

Little Miss Sunshine

refreshing movie, something different. bittersweet, tragic, fun. i enjoyed it.

The Science of Sleep

lovely movie with great visual things, but story wasn't as good as "eternal sunshine of spotless mind". but i liked the dreamy atmosphere and surreal stuff.

Rebel Without a Cause

james dean, he just shines. and corny or not i related to their frustration and sorrow strongly.

Notes on a Scandal

really good movie with amazing lead roles.

My Life Without Me

so sad it's hard to handle.


perfect in every way: colors, music, story. you can see how it's directed by a woman, and everybody should see this movie because it's about such a great woman. frida is something i can't watch without crying but still it's something i need to watch regularly because it makes me believe in some important things.

The Breakfast Club

seen it, but 'cause of circumstances didn't pay enough attention. i'll watch it again soon.


really good sci-fi movie, touching, clever and has really intense direction. made from interesting point of view.

Seven Samurai (Shichinin no Samurai)

some movies are just too long. like this one.

Bad Education

this suprised me, almodovar doesn't usually blow my mind off or anything, but i really liked la mala educaciķn. it was great and bernal was fantastic.

Shark Tale
Shark Tale(2004)

do they really think that kids want to see thousand movies about fish ? finding nemo was nice, though. but enough is enough.

True Romance
True Romance(1993)

great movie. script was awesome, who else could write dialogue like that than Q ? nobody. many good actors like christopher walken, brad pitt and gary oldman, also in a roles. amazing movie with violence and humor. this is about TRUE ROMANCE.

The Orphanage

Fine, dynamic film. Scary, but in the good way. Intensive.

Breakfast on Pluto

sweet drag movie, again. how i just love them.


closer makes me cry every time i watch it. why isn't love enough.

The Golden Compass

i like the books, though it has been years since i read them. i don't remember their plot so clearly anymore, but i remember the dark atmosphere. this movie was nothing like that. it had good actors, nicole kidman was great coulter and dakota made lovely lyra. maybe as a fantasy movie it's alright, but next to those books it was just too epic and dull.

Match Point
Match Point(2005)

i'm sceptical towards all movies by woody allen, but my friend bought me match point as present and said that woody or not, it's a good movie. and yes, it was. scarlett was fabulous and jonathan rhys meyers also good. there was something weird about development of relationships in the beginning of the film, but it got better and more intense. nice twists in the end.

2001: A Space Odyssey

i admit; there was so much i didn't understand. difficult and too long.

Taxi Driver
Taxi Driver(1976)

strong direction, strong actor work, fine story. i really liked taxi driver, even though i think its plot had some missing things - some reasons were not told. despite that taxi drive is a great movie, with brilliant tension. de niro is perfect and other actors, harvey keitel and young jodie foster weren't bad neither. really worth watching.

Sin City
Sin City(2005)

visually - amazing. and that's not all. it has great actors, interesting plot(s) and cool style. this is art. brutal, but art.

The Crow: Wicked Prayer

this wasn't SO bad... actually it entertained me, in some way.


i admit, i watched it only because keira knightley (ah, she was awesome-looking in this film) and bounty hunter theme. well, it wasn't so bad at all! interesting, not bad actors neither.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Strange? Maybe. Crazy? maybe. Fun? You bet. But also smart, sexy, groovy, cool and brilliant. And oh, what a great music! This movie is fantastic even after 30 years. And such a cult. Tim Curry's performance as Frank is something i can't describe with words. I've started to love rocky horror more and more, it's so many things.


no, really, maybe i'm stupid or retarted or something but i just don't get it why it's so good

Blue Velvet
Blue Velvet(1986)

this was different from what i expected... i guess older lynch isn't so difficult. anyway, great music, great strong atmosphere. nice one.

Fight Club
Fight Club(1999)

Awesome movie. Brad Pitt and Edward Norton both do unbelieveble acting. One of those movies which made my mind explode. Fight Club is fucking great.

Kill Bill: Volume 1

Some people say, that Kill Bill shows how Tarantino lost his talent. Well, this was first of his movies I saw, and I loved it. I still do, very much. It shocked me but I enjoyed and felt something exciting. Plot is simple, but oh how good it looks. Q's ode to his favorite movies and in the same time genius film.

Lost In Translation

Lost in Translation might seem quite different than my other movie favorites. But it's really important film to me. I've felt so much watching it, I've learned so much, I've felt so related. It's about being lost, being alone, finding new world, finding somebody. I find Lost in Translation so moving, that sometimes I'm afraid to even watch it. This is beautiful, this is why I want to see Tokyo.

Pulp Fiction
Pulp Fiction(1994)

Pulp Fiction. I could talk about Q's work forever. Often the first thing people see is the violence. But I see so much more - brilliant stories, great humour, and spectacular dialogue. Pulp Fiction has all that, it's a cult. To me, this is the perfect movie.

The Prestige
The Prestige(2006)

Great and intelligent film. After this I totally felt like I've been fooled. Actors were all very good.

Battle Royale

Battle royal is a good movie, I think. It's not perfect and it didn't blow my mind, but it's clever and brutal. Plot's not fantastic, but idea is interesting.

Wild At Heart

i just love this movie. great acting, full of little suprises and details. and their love is so real it hurts.

The Notebook
The Notebook(2004)

i don't remember when i would have cried so much during the movie. it didn't become one of my favourites, but it was touching and good story.


i think it's the best horror movie i've seen. (i don't usually like them). suspiria was great play of lights, colors and music. atmosphere was brilliant. art.

Girl With a Pearl Earring

it's been long time since i saw this one, and i would like to see it again. but i remember it was beautiful. and scarlett is always fabulous.

Pan's Labyrinth

sad, beautiful, twisted. great movie. finally some melancholic fantasy, something different than those narnias and such. i liked, muchly.

Die Hard
Die Hard(1988)

a good action movie, well written. quite masculine, but actors did good job and i enjoyed this film.


soft black and white-style was pretty, and new york of course, but i didn't like this movie. no allen for me, thank you.


So beautiful it hurts to watch.

Snakes on a Plane

it thought it would be fun to watch, but it wasn't. it was bad, really bad, but still not bad enough to be good, if you know what i mean. this movie tried too hard to be a cult, and you can see that.

The Machinist

dark, intelligent. christian bale was impressive, not only that motivation which made him lost all that weight, but his whole acting. this movie reminded me of fight club and memento, in a good way.

The Lost Boys

I think this is cool and funny, plot's not maybe marvellous but movie has its own charm.

Cowboy Bebop: The Movie (Kaubôi Bibappu: Tengoku no Tobira)

What a style! Great anime with really funky music.


Sweet and beautiful.

Cats: The Musical

This may look weird on my top movies-list, but I'm such a fan of this movie cats version! Its soundtrack makes me always happy.

Thelma & Louise

All actors are great in thelma and Louise. This movie has woman energy! It makes me cry every time.

Kill Bill: Volume 2

No doubt, I love second Kill Bill as well.

Reservoir Dogs

Funny and brutal, great actros. Professional and cool.
