  • An American Werewolf in London

    An American Werewolf in London


    “I’m certain if there were a monster roaming around Northern England, we’d have seen it on the telly.”

    This was one of the very first movies I saw on VHS. And I am deeply and eternally in love with it ever since. Watched it literally dozens of times.

    With such an emotional attachment, it is difficult to identify why American Werewolf is one of my favorite films, if not THE one. And the best werewolf film ever. No discussion accepted…

  • Hatari!



    "He fell off a fence." - "You nearly took a leg off, I got a dislocated shoulder..." - "And he gets the ice." - "Yeah. Come on. I'll buy you a nice warm drink."

    I know that from today's perspective, the hunting and capture of animals for zoos may look incorrect. Taken this aspect aside, this is one of my favorite films.

    I have just returned from a photo safari to Kenya and Tanzania (Mar 2019) and vowed during the…

    ” You and Dad are the most unexciting couple in the entire universe.”

    Having the younglings in gave an interesting new perspective. Fun.

    ”Look at that walk. She’s kinda sexy in like a… Cruella Kardashian sorta way.”

    Being not from that ethnic group, I cannot judge how cliché-ridden the depiction of the Latin Americans is in here – looked a bit like it to me, but can’t judge. While appreciating that other groups aside from the “white” get their screentime, I prefer it to be a fair presentation.
    Otherwise, another superhero movie.

    ”I’ve seen worse.” – “Where?” – “You don’t wanna know.”

    “I was there to push people beyond what is expected of them.”

    Intense. A good, intense study of two men, well, what? Fighting? Struggling to become better? Developing? Hell, I do not envy the students. I am not ok with a teacher driving students like that with personal, emotional insult. Whatever the results. But on film, the dialogues, monologues and abuses are a hit.

    A very good film, and that with me having no love and appreciation for jazz at all. Great shots.

    And it is good to see Miles Teller in a decent role at least this one time.

    „Doodle let me go.“

    Amazing use of light, shadow, sound of nature, great actors, making an unusual but fascinating piece of work. 

    If you liked „The Witch“, you‘ll like this one. 

    I almost forgot how good Mr Dafoe can be in a menacing, sinister role. And Mr Pattinson has outgrown the shiny vampire status for sure, a good thing. 

    A descent into madness and the pits of the human mind.
