Movie Ratings and Reviews

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

The first 1 1/2 hours feel a bit like a kid's movie and I felt my thoughts drift of far too much. But then the movie actually redeems itself, turns darker and more intense. The last half is a non stop epic action ride in the rich world we know from the LOTR Trilogy.
The character animation is unbelievable, the Goblins and Orcs look almost more real than the actors. Martin Freeman holds his own in his role as Bilbo Baggins.

Seven Psychopaths

What an unexpected treat! Very unconventional, off-beat, hilarious. The performances are top notch and so much fun to watch. (Christopher Walken is the man! And Sam Rockwell just kills it in this movie.) My favorite movie of the year so far.

Celeste and Jesse Forever

I liked this way more than I thought I would. Authentic, fun and touching. A little gem you shouldn't miss. A romantic dramedy for grown ups.

The Master
The Master(2012)

A letdown. Visually compelling, good performance by Phoenix, interesting music... but I just didn't care. Went nowhere for me.

A Better Life

heart wrenching, a small big movie. an immigrant worker loses his truck and tries to get it back. but the stakes are so high, I don't quite remember a movie in 2011 that had me squirming on the edge of my seat like that.

The Tree of Life

Haunting in a way. Sticks with you. Don't care too much for the God God God thing. Feels a bit pretentious when Sean Penn enters the frame. Also when the boy screams "She only loves me". But: i can appreciate the achievement. Truly amazing visuals. Dense atmosphere in the middle. Big vision. Told in moments, vignettes. I guess I was missing a bit of a story, of a narrative I can hold on to/care about.

Midnight in Paris

Thought it was good, but not supergood. I almost don't dare to say that about a movie with such critical acclaim... but I found it a bit heavy handed. Rachel McAdam's role as Gil's/Owen Wilson's fianc (C) was written super flat and too one dimensional. Hold on, I liked the movie, but it definitely is not one of my favorite Woody Allen movies.

Winter's Bone

Raw, realistic, nothing short of amazing and nerve wrecking. One of 2010s best movies.


Disney at the top of their game. Entertaining, funny, action, goose bumps and musical numbers. Some of them are really good, even if you don't like musicals. The animation is superb, the character animation so good that in some of the scenes I was not thinking "good animation" but I thought "good acting". Ok, having said all that, a movie like this is personally not entirely my thing, but for what it is, it is super good and I can appreciate that.


GREAT (!) action scenes.

127 Hours
127 Hours(2010)

Outstanding and unexpected.

Broken Trail
Broken Trail(2006)

Watching this from time to time... hanging out with the characters.

The Quick and the Dead

Sam Raimi leaves a big fat fingerprint on this over the top, superstylized spaghetti western.

My Name Is Nobody (Il mio nome  Nessuno)

This was one of my absolute favorites when I was a kid.

The Town
The Town(2010)

Very impressed by Ben Affleck's direction... Great cast, good action, decent plot. Watch it.


Fun. And ridiculous.

The American
The American(2010)

Quieter and smaller than you would expect it to be (The trailers are really showing you a different movie). Not the best of the year, but definitely worth seeing.

Tron Legacy
Tron Legacy(2010)

The visuals are unbelievable. Light Cycles! So much great design. So many great special effects. But the story is all over the place and ultimately ruins the film.
