Recently two big-budget superhero films hit theaters; Captain Marvel and Aquaman. Aquaman got a surprisingly positive reaction from the fans, while Captain Marvel was, and still is, being bombarded by bad reviews from a bunch of people who can't get over the fact that Brie Larson wants more diversity in the industry. However, there have also been negative reviews concerning … Continue reading Superhero Double Bill: “Captain Marvel” and “Aquaman”
Peter Berg was on his way to become qualified as a good director. Ever since Lone Survivor, he’s made nothing but great films. Then Mile 22 came around; the not-so-surprising flop if you’d seen the trailer, but very surprising flop if you’d seen the director’s previous films.

SPOILERS FOR SEASON ONE OF THE GOOD PLACE We all know that empty feeling we have after having finished a show. It’s as if the show has left a hole inside of you. We then quickly move on to another show to re-fill that empty spot as soon as possible. Though you know that you’ll … Continue reading “The Good Place” is quite brilliant and I can’t really figure out why.
2018 has been far from stellar; Paradox was terrible, Mute was boring and Black Panther failed to amaze me, just to give you a few examples. I’ve only seen a handful of really good movies this year like Game Night and Annihilation, but now I’m happy to say that I can add another one to … Continue reading Opinion: “A Quiet Place” (2018)
Ever since Barry Jenkins, the director of 2016’s Moonlight, announced on Twitter that this film was worth checking out, I was more than excited to see it. So I was naturally disappointed when the film didn’t get a release date in my country.
