    The Third Man

    ★★★★½

    The leading actor: Vienna. Bombed capital of Austria, divided into four Allied occupation zones. Dark nights. Black shadows, always in fearful motion. Dull, gray daylight. Sewers that look like abandoned gothic cathedrals. The city is ruled by black market. Shady characters roam lonely streets. Hasty footsteps echo on the damp cobblestones. Vienna has gone through terrible times. And still there will be some uncertain years left.

    In the middle of it: The Zither music of Anton Karas. In additon to…

    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    ★★★★

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

    "DER WIENERSCHNITZEL"

    Does horror actually only arise if the protagonists do exactly what normal people would never do?

    Why do authors, screenwriters and directors of horror stories believe that people act always irrational in uncomfortable situations? I can’t remember when I saw the last horror movie, in which the characters rationally responded to threats. How boring this genre has become ...…

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★

    Thanos: “I am … inevitable.”
    Tony Stark: “And I am … Iron Man.”


    What a dignified conclusion to a series that started with IRON MAN and lasted over eleven years and twenty-two films! ENDGAME is by far the best AVENGERS movie and one of the most credible comic adaptations ever!

    Unlike its predecessors, ENDGAME benefits from an outstanding screenplay that actually manages not only to retell and bring to an end the history of the AVENGERS, but rather to enclose…
