It does not happen to me often that I pick a film that I forgot I saw. “Somewhere” did not make a whole lot of impression, apparently it neither did the first time I saw it. A film without a story. We just see a few days of the life of a famous actor screwing […]
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.
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. […]
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 […]
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 […]
This comment was on such a strange place, that I almost spammed it. When I checked what this was about, I found a film with Genesis P-Orridge. The director apparently uploaded his 2006 short to Youtube for your entertainment. Check it out if you are interested.
Now that I think of it, we also watched the first series of the lauded series “Breaking Bad“. The series have a nice joke here and there, but also here the first series did not make me want to watch the second. Many people say that the series develops, but frankly, when you want people […]
We usually spend one evening a week watching series. Not on TV though, I am terrible with following things on TV, I just want to watch something when I want to watch it. Also I am no fond of all these 7+ season series and consequentally not of still running series. Also I find little […]
It has been a while since I saw “Enter The Void“. Taking that the DVD would be released by now, I thought I would get myself a copy and watch it again. Well, the DVD is available, but from the average DVD shop downtown… Fortunately there is the internet.
The circumstances were thus that we watched “Dexter” four nights in a row, it were the first eight episodes of the second series. “Dexter” started in 2006 and is still running (season 6).
Remember “Horizonica” (2007)? The team of “Schat Ik Ga Fietsen” is working on a new full-length “Nederhorror” (“Netherhorror” after the Netherlands) zombie slasher with a plethora of volunteers. Make-up is done by Suzy Terror (who else), Ramon Etman (director of “Horizonica”) has his influence because of the cooperation of “Broet. The title is in Italian […]
As a new series we got ourselves “Dexter“. These series actually have a 9.3 on IMdB (just as Twin Peaks) and a friend of mine says that it is getter better with every episode, even upto the fifth series. I am no fond of still running series, neither of series with too many seasons, but […]
As you probably know, we are watching “Danger Man” (“or “Secret Agent”), the series that came before “The Prisoner”. Suddenly I wondered what McGoohan would have looked like when he was older. I ran into this page informing us that McGoohan died at the age of 80 on 15 January 2009. The link contains two […]
Yesterday we watched “Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind” again. What a great film! A story with filmographic jokes as only a Kaufman can come up with, empathizable characters (the shy Jim Carrey who falls in love with the extravagant sweetheart Kate Winslet), a great atmosphere. I see that my review gives everything away, but […]
However the Danger Man box that I got are the third and forth series, it took a while before the series started to get more interesting. Most of the episodes still are a bit ‘normal’ but not boring, but a few episodes back was the great “The Ubiquitous Mr. Lovegrove” in which John Drake is […]
