Equus:

I was betting on it being based upon a theatrical play, and it is. This film has dark and menacing monologues that I was only used to by stuff like Macbeth. It's also one of the most realistic, most educational and most shocking profiles of an insane person and the whole procedure of him being cured. It's full of dark poetry and atmospheric imagery. Everything is thought out and seems to be placed exactly where it's supposed to be. No filler, even when it does have a long duration of more than 2 hours, and the plot just gets more exciting from scene to scene. Also: this is definately a horror movie, it's a psychological horror movie. So don't watch this thinking that it's just a good old thriller, it's horrifying.

10/10

Inception.

Fucking brilliant. Most original action movie in years. So complicated I could write two pages of shit about it and you wouldn't have any idea what I was talking about. Well, I could explain the plot... I dunno. I can't tell you WHY inception is awesome. Just see it.

Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex:
Woody Allen is still white as fuck, which is funny in his other movies, but in terms of the topic of sex it just becomes a Monty Python kinda flick. During the film the viewer is presented with sex-related questions about transvestites or orgasms, and then Woody appears in little short films that are supposedly the answer to that question. At the end there is a giant boob drowning people with milk. It was entertaining but pretty much the worst Woody Allen movie I've seen, it just feels too much like a bad british slapstick tv show. He's not really censoring anything and he does know about the details of sex, he just treats it with too much comedy, so that most of the topic becomes ridiculously overparodied.

5/10

Faces Of Death:
Beautiful old film sequences of death, lovely color schemes and a pretty cool narrator as well as moody soundtrack definately turn this into a deserved cult classic. If you're unfamiliar with the concept: you get to see lots of scenes of death, most based on actual events and made to look as realistic as possible. Combined with the oldschool feeling of the footage it's not hard to take most of this for real, and there might even be some scenes in it that truly are real, but it's definately the less brutal ones. But brutal? Actually none of this is disgusting or repulsive for the average internet user, it's just a very well done social criticism. I'm not surprised that this particular film got banned everywhere, it's not the images, it's the message that the images deliver that politicians and society would be afraid of. Maybe this is the only product media has every produced that could easily get people to start caring about nature, stop acting stupid, stop smoking, stop abusing animals etc etc etc. Very interesting.

10/10

Enter The Dragon:
Bruce Lee stuff is in a way similar to Bud Spencer & Terrence Hill movies, in the way that the plot is absolute garbage, however still very much charming and that the characters are absolut garbage, however still very much charming and that the fighting is awesome. The dialogue is funny, Bruce Lee's fighting performance is great and the little fighting stages and ideas are also pretty creative. You'll get pumped up from this type of film but you won't actually see any interesting new moves or astounding stunts, it's all rather realistic in comparision to new martial arts productions. Which is somewhat a good aspect as well. The story is Street Fighter-esque, a tournament held by a villain on an island, and Bruce Lee is the good agent that has to stop him. It's also interesting how the entire Jackie Chan & Owen Willson dynamic was already explored in this movie, since Lee is also getting a blonde white friend to fight alongside him. Everyone is stealing from everyone.

7/10

Fist Of Fury:
I enjoyed the seriousness of this movie. It might be the only heroic-themed martial arts movie that ever deals with the facts of violence and their consequences before the law. Bruce Lee plays the role of someone that gets all of his friends killed by the mob, he then decides to take revenge and kills all of the bad guys. At the end there is actually a scene of the police taking him in custody, no hollywood heroism, no censorship. I think that it's one of the rare martial arts films that are somewhat realistically portraying what fighting against street thugs really means. The soundtrack is total shit by the way, the acting could be better as well. The fighting itself was well performed but didn't bring anything new to the table.

6/10

Fitzcarraldo:
Different from Aguirre, this Herzog/Kinski film seems very expensive, the costumes and the equipment all feel very real. The movie is about a man that wants to bring the great opera to the amazon jungle, he wants to achieve it by making money from rubber. For this he has to move a steam ship over a mountain between two streams of the amazon river. Brilliant scenery and atmospheric soundtrack. More spiritual than philosophical this film explores human nature through its characters. A fitting duration and a well done ending are also part of it.

10/10

Flags Of Our Fathers:
Having only one slightly interesting character, this generic war movie presents us with the whole story of the Iwojima photo with the soldiers raising the flag and shit. Problem is that you get every single cliche: the flashbacks to the bombings, the drinking veterans, the annoying bitchy girlfriends, the money hungry bosses and the press as the bad guys. The memory of the real soldiers is kinda being fucked with here. I'm not blaming Clint Eastwood, I'm betting that Steven Spielberg is responsible for the mainstream garbage. Anyways, it's not a good movie, don't watch it unless you just enjoy seeing those Saving Private Ryan beginning scenes a lot.

3/10

For A Few Dollars More:
After having seen The Good, The Bad And The Ugly I was expecting another entertaining but otherwise contentless western. However I was pleasently surprised when I found out that this classic even adds a lot of intelligence, mind games and plot twists to the mix. It's definately worth seeing, the soundtrack is as always awesome and the characters are well done. They do all have their cheesy little gimmicks of course, but it's ok in these types of flicks. The only problem was the length, I think it doesn't always have to drag on for 2 hours, you kinda get the point after having seen a character's gimmick for the 25th time.

9/10

Emmanuelle:
An important famous sexual liberation softcore porn film from the middle of the 70s, straight out of france. The main actress has to live through all kinds of new sexual expiernces. The movie is famous for its artsy way of showing eroticism, however, I thought it was just artsy outside of the sex scenes. The sex scenes are about as bad as any other softcore sex scenes ever, but the normal scenes are beautifully composited with lots of lovely settings and camera perspectives. It's interesting for what it is, but it really just stays a softcore porn in the end. Something to show to your feminist girlfriend maybe or something I don't know.

4.5/10

Freaks:
Another black and white masterpiece. It's about a freak show at a circus, with all kinds of deformed people. The film deals with the issues of these freaks being accepted as humans, and I thought for most of it that this was all it was going to be, but I was wrong. There is a couple of bad guys, a woman and a man in the circus that betray and trick one of the freaks. Through the womans sex appeal she marries the little guy and tries to poison him to get to his fortune. That's not the moral though, he sees through her plan and gathers the other freaks one stormy night to kill her and her lover with knives and guns and everything. Those scenes are really intense and something that would because of discrimination censoring never be able to be produced again. At the end it is shown that the once beautiful normal woman was turned into a horrible freak herself through the rage and revenge of the others. Now that's what I call moral.

8/10

Funny Games:
I think that the purpose of this film was to show every slasher horror fan what they really are turned on by when going into the average generic psychpath killer movie. The guy from "Das Leben der Anderen" plays the father of a family that is being held hostage and killed by two sociopaths. The soundtrack varies from Mozart to John Zorn. At the beginning I was rooting for the director because of that, at the end it was hipster garbage instead. Of course the film makes a point out of the bloody gore not being shown, but the emotions of the victims faces that have to watch instead, or it just cuts to the other sociopath making something to eat. The sociopaths break the 4th wall twice to tell the audience how unfunny these games are and how we should be ashamed of watching this and enjoying it. Therefore, it is nothing more than yet another misguided morals-in-your-face artsy fartsy flick without any real intelligence behind it. The real scary criminals aren't the ones that talk, it's the ones that just shoot randomly. In any case, the acting was superb, so was the soundtrack. Too bad the entire script got so dumb at the end. I mean there is a scene where one of the bad guys gets shot and then the other just pulls a remote to set it all back, and at the end they are talking metaphorically about a hero only living in fiction. Any more in your face? Ridiculous.

4/10

Garth Marenghi's Darkplace:
British nerd humour.

Glory:
This is a good blockbuster. Featuring Denzel Washington, Morgan Freeman and Matthew Broderick. In the historic setting of the civil war a regiment of black-soldiers-only is permitted to train for combat. Due to the political situation at the time they struggle on getting to see any real action, but at the end there is a really lovely choreographed war scene where the band of soldiers is finally able to proof what they are made of. But even that single climatic scene that every typical war movie has has a realistic downside to it. I really enjoyed the way that this movie's only kitsch gimmick was its soundtrack and use of american flags, the plot progression is steadily linear without any useless filler or flashbacks or shit. The focus is entirely on the movie's characters and their development throughout the training and the battle. Nicely done. Emotionally as well.

8/10

Gojitmal (Lies):
This is like an asian school project done on the topic of bondage. It sucks because it has no real content or meaning, just film filters thrown over an asian schoolgirl whipping an old guy's ass. For 1h and 47 minutes.

Letharg:

~20 Minutes short film with music by Fäulnis. Not really anything spectacular. Seemed kind of forced. You basically just watch a guy in a room buiding some weird machine you don't understand and freaking out.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1:

Nothing really happened. It's a rather boring movie, but maybe I only felt that way because I didn't read the last Harry Potter book. But I thought...that may actually be good since I wouldn't be comparing it to the book all the time..and everyone knows...mostly the book is way better than the movie they make of it. I think it was a stupid idea to split it into two parts...I guess all the exciting stuff happens in the second part..

SAW 3D - The Final Chapter:

I expected more of the whole 3D-Thing...the first movie I watched in this format and when calling a movie "3D" I think it should have some more effects. Only in a few parts you really got to feel it.
As far as the movie goes...it was rather weak (and Saw-Movies have in general always been rather weak) It had some funny gore-moments, but in general I didn't really get what I expected. It seemed to forced and actually not really like a final chapter..in fact...it made you question even more things and felt like there should be another movie following this one. Well, at least I had a girl with me...and I guess everyone knows how girls behave when watching horror/gore movies...gotta love clichés.
