X * Jon Hewitt (2011)

Little expectations with a 5.6 on IMdB, but I did not feel like looking for titles from my list, so I just picked “X: Night Of Vengeance”. The film starts even not so badly with a provocative sex scene portraying one of the main characters (Holly) as a high-class escort girl. The other girl we follow is Shay who ran away from home and tries to earn a bit of money in the oldest profession. When their paths cross, mutual problems arise, serious problems. A cat-and-mouse game starts quite niceely, but slowly but surely goes downwards until the end of the film becomes rather weak. Throw in an obligatory surprising twist in the story and you have “X” in a nutshell. A film to watch only when you have nothing better to see. Both women are a reason perhaps, but as a whole I can see where the IMdB-rate comes from.

Wicker weekend

Last weekend I saw both Wicker Man films, the 1973 original and the 2006 remake and I just see that I ‘blogged’ about these films before.


Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
