    Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time

    ★★★★½

    Oh man. What a board(Brett). I struggled through the rebuild movies I can’t deny, which never reached me like the series or the first movie did. All because that damn average thrice upon a time had made me so curious again. 

    And once again I have to thank the average. A thousand thanks. I really didn't believe after the three movies that the neon Genesis evangelion series would come to a worthy end. But the ending exceeded my expectations by…

    D. W. Griffith Double Feature 


    Part2: Intolerance (1916) 


    An absolute masterpiece. 

    After the more than controversial birth of a nation, Griffith's response, which many took up as an apology but was not intended as such. 

    Apology or not this film is fantastic! What was created here in 1916 is incredible. You can hardly believe your eyes what sets were created here. Looks better than 98% of the epics nowadays. Many shots are probably the most beautiful I was ever allowed…

    Filmwelt Filmclub #78 - Ausgewählt von Cinemistery

    The second Austrian film in the filmclub after the miserable hagazussa is already a clear improvement, but in my opinion can not reach the dark valley my favorite from Austria. 

    Nevertheless, a really great film. The perfomances shock, the story can also keep you on the ball at all times and the message is important. 

    Unfortunately, such films are too repeatable for me to get more emotions out of them. Christiane F or…

    Another big strike from Vinterberg here for me. Makes it three in a row. While the hunt offers the best of these three films (if I had to rate exactly it would be 4.75), another round is my second favorite work by Vinterberg with an exact 4.5 and the celebration now gets a strong 4.25. 

    With largely amateurish camerawork and dialogue that takes a bit of getting into, the celebration is the most Danish work for me so far. Great…

    Good Afternoon Gentlemen.
    I am a HAL 9000 Computer

    Yesterday’s and first rewatch of 2001: 

    An experimental watch..
    Ever felt like in LLL when gosling and stone waltzing through the universe ? I haven’t since yesterday. After watching the first 19 minutes which I really love but more later I had the idea to dance the blue Danube waltz with my girlfriend while it’s played at the film. Said and done. And what an experience. Yes clear you don’t get…

    Any Number Can Win

    ★★★★

    Verneuil with another wonderful heist film. The Sicilian clan is one of my favorite movies of all time and through that I gave this a try especially again for this magnificent duo of Alain Delon and Jean Gabin. Two legends in amazing roles. 

    The score this time isn’t from morricone which I would thought makes it worse but it doesn’t. Sure it hasn’t auch a legendary theme like the Sicilian clan but the jazzy casino sounds are totally suited. Only that it’s too predictable and some lengths are in it, makes it not better for me.
