Film (1965)

And now for something completely different. Samuel Beckett is remembered and perhaps best known for being a bilingual avant-garde novelist, a poet and a playwright, but he also briefly dabbled with cinema in the early sixties, when he wrote the screenplay for Film, which in the course of two years ended up becoming a twenty-four […]

The Lego Batman Movie (2017)

This is going to be rather short one simply because I really don’t have much to say. To be just blunt, I didn’t really enjoy watching this. But that’s because I’m clearly the wrong demographic for it. This is aimed at kids and I guess I’m simply too old and grumpy to enjoy this with […]

Fist Fight (2017)

So it’s nearing midnight on a Friday, and I feel like watching something short and nothing too serious because it’s late but I’m not yet tired enough to go to bed. After much deliberation on what to watch, I eventually end up with Fist Fight, which my common sense repeatedly warned about but I, in […]

Carrie Pilby (2016)

After having now seen two of the five new entries, the results […]

House of Dracula (1945)

With all the famous Universal monsters teaming up in a single movie (yes, I know they already did it in House of Frankenstein, but I haven’t seen that one yet, so shut up) I was actually pretty interested in seeing House of Dracula. I mean, this is a classic monster mash up picture, with Dracula […]

Paris Is Burning (1990)

From what I’ve read, when Jennie Livingston’s Paris Is Burning was originally released, it took both the critics and the film festival circuit by storm, and it’s not hard to see why. It really speaks volumes that the film feels as important today as it did when it originally came out in the early 90s. […]
