    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.”

    “The supernatural, the power of darkness, it’s all true. The undead surround me. Have you ever talked to a corpse? It’s boring. I’m lonely.”


    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…

    "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.

    ”The damn moon is hollow.”

    The positive thing is that Roland Emmerich makes dumb but mostly enjoyable movies. Unfortunately he peaked with ID4. Surprising, how a non-American can so deeply absorb the clichés of a civilization. Less would be more sometimes.

    “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.
