Sort of interesting Hungarian animated film about a gang war between mice and cats which is essentially the mafia vs Interpol. It had some cool parts but the pacing was way off, and felt it had little to say and the animation wasn't that great really if this was 30 minutes it would been awesome but overall very meh in my opinion and the ending was pretty pathetic.

Starts out very promising with all the talk of Nazi's using the occult and the bad guy being creepy and charismatic , than get relegated to bland, awful utterly clique, and tries to go for some Lovecraftian elements but fails badly at it , all in all pretty poor.

Europa Report
Europa Report (2013)

This kind of the good version of Apollo 18. I kind of hate that this is being refered to as found footage film, its much better than that the way it's integrated from a storytelling way is more like a documentary, a "fauxmentary"? The interactions of the people in the Europa one is decent not great but i feel it sells the claustrophobia of the situation and the unknown fear on Europa. Really some impressive visuals for how litt;le the budget was and Europa looks amazing, by far the best Sci-fi film of the year. Loved how it has a lot of callbacks from great classic writers like Bradbury, C. Clarke and Assimov. Oh and the format they tell the story is great. I wish they had more money to hire stronger actors but both Nyquist and Copley are excellent in this all in all I suggest watching this, its only 90 minutes and think it's maybe the best thriller of the year as well, though they do throw a bunch of hard sci-fi ideas in this, so be warned of that. Overall really good in my book.

Okay so surprisingly this isn't the train wreck that people expected but i cant really say it's good either. First have to say I'm really impressed by James Deen, in his first mainstream acting role he is the most compelling actor in the entire film, The rest of the cast in a big meh not that great though Funk is the worst of the bunch. The plot not amazing typical Bret Easton Ellis fair. Not bad just enough to show empty, vacuous, narcissistic people. Not a waste of time but at the same time not a must see either, But worth a watch for Deen's performance alone.

To Be or Not to Be

A pitch perfect political satire made in one of the scariest times in modern times and does an insanely great job of turning a setting of mass tragedy into really smart great humor. Very subversive to treat the Nazis in this way when at the time the world was terrified of them and a lot of great comedic chemistry and running jokes as well. Superb!
