Rating History

Frozen
Frozen (2013)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Frozen preserves Disney's modus operandi, but is one of the most exciting and entertaining features the film studio has forged in recent years nevertheless.

Boyhood
Boyhood (2014)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Linklater lets his audience live through the fun and the pain, the love and the misery, and the excitement and the disappointment of his protagonist Mason with yet another wonderful screenplay in his repertoire. Leaving the cinema, it's hard to grasp one has just spent the better part of an evening in front of a screen, but at the same time, there's also a feeling of having relived your own adolescence along with Mason.

Death at a Funeral
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

With good characters and slapstick gags, there is some fun to be had, but you'll need more if you aspire to shape a good film. Death at a Funeral opts against that and therefore doesn't furnish more than the occasional laugh.

Apocalypse Now
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Being unique is not always a positive attribute for a film, but with Apocalypse Now, Francis Ford Coppola's devastating portrayal of the Vietnam War, it most certainly is. At least in my opinion however, the two-and-a-half-hour-long depiction of war's atrocities is not that great when regarded simply as a film; it's much more a work of art, drastically showcasing the futility of this notorious bloodshed, resulting in millions of casualties over its duration of almost 20 years. Apocalypse Now fuels hatred and incomprehension for these happenings in the audience and makes a major pacifistic statement through the metaphorical journey of one man. But apart from the stunning cinematography, the 1979 epic lacks some cinematic traits to make it a thoroughly thrilling and rewatchable experience and can thus not get a top rating from me when regarded as a film.
