Samurai chanpurû (2004)
A samurais tale with hip hop influence
Shin'ichiro Watanabe did it again. After He already proofed his own style of art in "Cowboy Bebop" he nailed it again few years later with "Samurai Champloo". I could never decide which one of them both I prefer but it's sure to say that Champloo doesn't need to hide and can easily keep up with its big brother. The visual style is top notch and just so is the musical background. Where "Cowboy Bebop" relied on old jazz and blues "Samurai Champloo" goes for Hip Hop and does that in a beautiful way of using old school lo-fi Beats to underlay the scenery of old edo Japan. The Story is great as well I don't want to spoiler anything but let me say that this isn't your average Anime story about fighting and being the best at it. It covers deep philosophical topics and does that with brilliance. I loved all characters featured in this show and the humorous style they often display.
This show just got it all great characters, good storytelling, and a beautiful visual frame that captures all of this. This show made my laugh and cry, both in one episode in some cases.
47 Ronin (2013)
Keanu is in this
Overall this movie isn't bad but there were some things that didn't needed to be done. For example the whacky visual effects in the last battle scenes when all their swords made these little swooshs like in Star Wars (the swoosh of the yellow monk guys is quite cool though). The story wasn't very complex or new but it was a solid base for the movie. The fight scenes are well done and the few CGI Creatures shown in this movie are mostly well done. Still I have high expectations for a samurai movie since there aren't that many good ones especially from the last 20 years.
The Terminator (1984)
I'll be back
Great Movie with so many great quotable Moments and such a remarkable overall look. I always struggle to figure out weather I like this or the sequel more. I think I prefer the first one for it's darker look but the second one is I think a little bit more exciting seeing the terminator fight against a equally strong antagonist. Anyway both are great movies and have a place in my Movie Heart.
Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
Maybe the best sequel ever made.
Terminator was a revolutionary movie that's for sure but this one manages to easily top its predecessor. Great Action scenes with nice camera work making sure to capture anything in the best possible way. Also this movie has one of the best antagonists of movie history with the T-1000.
Black Dynamite (2009)
Hilarious dialogues and one liners, trashy but still awesome directed action scenes and a exaggerated almost comic like look with create directing and great use of music. This movie knows what it wants to be and delivers in such a brilliance that it finesses the whole genre in one round house kick. Absolutely one of my favorite movies if I want something to brighten up and just enjoy the spectacle on the screen.
Reservoir Dogs (1992)
Tarantino really started off high.
This movie proofs it. Tarantino became employee of the month on his first day at work. He already had his unique way of designing scenes and dialogues from early on and created a masterpiece out of nowhere.
It was this unique style that captured me from the first minute I experienced it. The way characters were introduced and scenes were arranged was so different to everything I had seen at this point and the dialogues had such impact without being over acted. But not only the spoken word stands out in this movie also the pictures you see on the screen have a whole lot of impact. The way the camera is used has something I can't really explain but it makes every frame of this movie look like a cool poster in my opinion (something Tarantino kept up to this day imo).
Also the story is a hell of a ride and the order which the story is told in is just pure genius and could not be done any better in my opinion.
The puzzle gets resolved more the further you look and collapses in a bangin End.
This movie catapulted Tarantino into my personal Mt Rushmore of Movie Directors and to this day he held his spot.
Shanghai Knights (2003)
Fun for the whole family
This movie is a perfect example that movies don't need to be perfect and demanding to be entertaining and give you a good time. The jokes are funny the actors fit their roles the setting is interesting and the action sequences give it that special something. Especially the umbrella fight scene is burned in my head since I first saw it. Jackie Chan is just a stunt choreography genius.
The Wolfman (2010)
Even though the scenery looks quite nice and the actors overall give good performances this movie doesn't really get above a mediocre result. Everything is quite predictable. It's not unwatchable but also not needed to be seen. Disappointingly it seems like werwolves are hard so display in movies.
Sorry to Bother You (2018)
Started off good and real interesting but couldn't keep up with that till the end
It Follows (2014)
Not as generic as most other recent horror movies. Nice innovative premise and some real creepy scenes.
Best Heist Movie ever
Pacino and De Niro actually sharing one screen for the first time and it's bombastic.
It's easy to say, that 'Heat' is one of the greatest if not by far the best Heist-Action-Movie ever made. It's not only for the awesome shooting- and action scenes to stand out, also the well thought out plot and the excellent acting make this one of my favorite movies ever.
Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
You better fasten your seat belts for this spectacular rollercoaster ride through the post-apocalyptical wastelands. This movie is packed with action and awesome stunts, captured by amazing camera views, from beginning to end. Also the World is just so bizarre in every little detail, that you will discover a lot of new things rewatching this movie. Definitely one of the biggest movies since the 2000s.
Too Old to Die Young (2019)
Aesthetic Work of Art
I was first introduced to Refn when I saw "Drive" and I was fully blown away. I have never seen anything like this before. I liked the visuelle style, the awesome use of music and the silent but neverless violent aesthetic of this word.
So when I heard Refn is about to make a 8 hour long movie I was really excited for it. Well, what could I say but my expectations were met. The neon-dark visuelles the spheric music the long silent moments where the camera moves so slowly over the artistic scenery, that could hang in a gallery for itself, that it almost feels like the world is standing still. But what I liked the most was this feeling of tension Refn build up throughout the whole show that never really gets released. It's like a little itch in the back of your head that something bad is about to happen and even if stuff goes down the feeling of relief doesn't come. I liked this show very much and I think Refn really did a brilliant Job executing this. But I understand everyone who thinks this show is a little too slow or the story is too weird. But if you look at it more like a work of art than a work of enternainment you will find the beauty of this show.
Inherent Vice (2014)
I don't know what to think
Seen this movie without knowing anything about it but I thought I'd give it a try.
The characters of the show are more or less all quite interesting and well acted. Especially Joaquin Phoenix and Katherine Waterston did a very good job and of course a little Benicio del Toro is always nice to watch. But oh boy the plot of this movie was so weird and hard to follow that at the end of the movie I felt like I missed most of it even though I payed attention. I felt like there were too many names and characters that left an open spot in the plot. I mean watching the characters was entertaining for the most parts but understanding them was impossible to me.
I don't really have an opinion on this one. I enjoyed watching it but I don't feel like I would've missed out something if I hadn't seen it.
The Boys (2019)
This show has all it needs to make it one of the greatest TV shows of this century. It contains great acting, great characters, great camera and visuals and of course an awesome and exciting story that keeps you wondering what would happen next and how this whole thing will be going to end. Plus all this is wrapped in a dark humorous atmosphere. Definitely a must watch and not just for the average Superhero Fan.
Still a great movie
Blade is my favorite Vampire Action franchise. Wesley Snipes as one of the coolest action characters the world has ever seen. The fight sequences are top notch and still very entertaining to watch. The Story is pretty linear but that's not a bad thing for movies like this one in my opinion. The special effects are a little trashy sometimes but regarding this movie as 20 years old it's still pretty good.
El mariachi (1992)
Absolutely got me
This movie had me within the first seconds and held me tight till the credits rolled. This is the proof that simplicity isn't a bad thing.
Sheep among wolves
I liked this movie for the most part. Al Pacino delivers a great performance, maybe his second best after the Godfather movies, and gets the point across very well. Which especially means the frustration his character is going through which causes a sheep among wolves feeling. Although Pacinos role is very remarkable most other characters seemed a little bit flat to me but this movie is about Frank Serpico anyway like the title already says.
8/10 would recommend
Edit: it's Pacinos 3rd best work somehow I forgot about 'Heat'.
A Bronx Tale (1993)
Well done Robert
The story may be a simple one but never less still very moving and well performed. But what gives this movie really the final touch to make it great is the soundtrack. Also the display of the old New York and how your cultural background somehow determines how your life will go was great executed.
One of the greatest movies of all time
I won't say much but go watch this movie if you haven't already. Even if you don't like super hero themed movies, this one is not your average marvel Blockbuster.
One of the best shows I've seen
I watched season 1-3 by this time and I really love this show. I think Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy are one of the best trios in television history. All three of them are interesting characters with own morals and intentions. I never felt bored following their single story lines either. But same goes for every other character in this show. They're just fantastic. Every single one.
Also the world of Preacher is just fantastic I like the southern state flare the show's got to it and also loved the ridiculous presentation of Christian church. The jokes are on point and really hitting hard some times.
It has the perfect balance between brutal violence well thought out jokes and an exciting plot presented in a very nice production featuring great actors, perfect soundtrack and beautiful camera work.
It's worth watching just for the reason to see Gon and his friends one more time even though it's couldn't reach the high Standarts the show set.
"Wanted" is one of my Guilty Pleasure Movies. I liked it as a kid for its explicit action and the coole stunts and still these are the reason I come back to this movie from time to time.
Sometimes the movie seems a little trashy and over the top but if you don't care too much and enjoy the action sequences you can definitely find things to like about this movie.
Refreshing new concept of a "superhero" movie
I liked the innovative approach of this movie. It's not about perfect super heroes but more about teenagers that have to deal with their new gained powers and just like Spider-Man said "with great power comes great responsiblity" or at least something like that. Of course this movie has some flaws but over all I enjoyed watching it. Would recommend to anyone who likes superpowers and dramatic stories.
Also this movie reminded me a little bit of 'Akira'.
Cidade de Deus (2002)
City of God
As one of the highest rated movies on IMDb, I had a certain expectation when watching it and it's easy to say that the movie kept up with it.
The viewer gets thrown into a world full of violence and no rules. You get to know the people - and especially the little boys and young men - who live and also die in that exact world. Story wise no time is wasted. Each scene contributes to the progress of the story which gives the movie a good pace that is enhanced even more by the fast cuts and shaky camera. The actors deliver a great performance, especially considering that the actors are mostly inexperienced. Maybe that's exactly why they manage to portray their characters in such an authentic way.
I enjoyed watching this movie very much and would recommend it to everyone who likes a good gangster story with a little more substance to it than your average blockbuster.
