    Alien³

    ★★★½

    Again, after the previous movie, Ripley survives the alien horror and goes into cryosleep to be shot into the great wide vastness of space. However, it seems a xenomorph smuggled itself onboard causing the lifepod to crash on a prison planet. And so it rebegins.

    There's a lot being said about this third entry of the Alien franchise. Production and storywise problems, different writers, all ending up to the debut of one of the most stylish directors still at work,…

    1917

    ★★★★½

    Two soldiers on a quest to save thousands of lives with time and some Germans as their main enemy. From the first foot they set towards their task we follow them, seemingly in one take but obviously with the cuts meticulously hidden throughout, through the trenches, in the tunnels, towards the battlefield and a totally destructed village ending where the message needs to be delivered.

    We're onto them literally, like flies buzzing around them, or sneaking behind them as they…

    ★★

    A successful architect builds an enormous modern villa somewhere in a quiet town, but after a visit from some local criminals during a home invasion secrets are uncovered.

    The movie looks pretty slick, Marshall-Green is OK as the sleazy architect, but dear the plot of the movie is so generic it's hard to imagine why this was green lit anyway. The different story beats are as predictable as they come, and it's not really hard to see where this is…

    Vloggers are being vlogged.

    A young couple, travel vloggers, log in in a ridiculously big mansion somewhere. The landlord is not a creepy lord for a change, but a young woman who's pretty dynamic to say the least.

    It plays out generically with the landlady popping up at regular times, but the proceedings are kept mildly engaging through the enthusiasm of the main characters. If you're allergic to that, please steer far away from this, but otherwise it's a decent way to spend 80 minutes.

    ★★★★

    Talk about movies you will not forget having seen them a decade ago, well, this is a perfect example.
    A truly mesmerizing experience, which gets more and more uncomfortable as it progresses.
    Forget the slashers with axes, true horror, that's surgeons with scalpels.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    It's very rare that you hear a song for the first time that immediately drags you in, music- and lyricswise. But here, this is the case with the opening song. A guy playing the guitar. Heavenly voice. Smoke is blown, drinks are drunk. Eyes and ears glued to the screen.
    And so it continues.

    It's obviously a Coen's world, inhabited by stylishly sharp-dressed and sharp-humored men, scattered with awesome dialogue.

    You know, it's about a musician. Those guys who, when…
