    Recommended by: Mas and Cinemanick

    Man watching older films in cinemas is too damn Great!!I really wish I could go more often.

    La Dolce Vita or "Sweet Life" is Frederico Fellini's 1960 masterpiece and it's the first film I see from the acclaimed auter.We follow Marcello around Rome and get a glimse of a week of his life.The film could very well be split up in…

    Wes Ranked

    Life Aquatic is probably the most divisive Wes Anderson film out there and even tho it's my least favorite of his so far,I still had a great time with it(How couldn't I?It's Wes!)

    As always with Mr.Anderson,the cast is extremely crowded and the stand-out for me this time are Bill Murray(obvs),Owen Wilson & Angelica Huston.Bill Murray steals the show…

    This is my second film from Terence Mallick and it's safe to say now,I'm a fan.The Tree of life is the type of film you feel the need to rewatch before it has even finished.Easily the most ambitious film of the 21st century(That I've seen so far),it is not only a beautiful film to look as it powered by the literal God of…

    Spielberg Ranking

    Generally,I am not a big fan of biopics but right from the start Spielberg assured me that Frank's story is one that deserves to be told as there is a lot to take note from it.Apart from being a brilliant film from a technical aspect,surprisingly,Catch me if you can also managed to speak to me on…

    So this is where the Logan Hishe got its inspiration from.Nice!Although I must admit,the Logan video made me more sad than this.

    Based on the book that gets adapted into a film at least twice per decade,the 2012 adaptation of Les Miserables is probably the definitive version of the story right now and despite having quite a few problems with it,I thoroughtly enjoyed…

    All the Anime films I've seen RANKED

    Holy Moly!Right after hearing the film's opening line of dialogue I realized this was going to be one of the greatest films I've ever seen.What I didn't expect however,was just HOW GREAT!

    Showing the gruesome atrocities of WW2 through the eyes of two Japanese children trying to survive from the multiple bombings as well…

    Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

    ★★★½

    2019 Ranking

    Wasn't even planning on watching this but the opportunity occured and the trailer looked fun,so why not?Turns out I had a blast!I can watch Dwayne Johnson & Jason Statham trash talk each other all day.If I'm being honest my only problem was Idris Elba's "The Bad Guy" who was horrendous but hey,I did get to see Statham get punched in the face so worth it.

    I've only seen the first one from this franchice(which I hated)but if the later parts are as fun as this,I might have to check them out.

    This is my first Terence Mallick film and he is off to a great start because I was really blown away by this one!Mallick's Philosophical take on war is unlike anything I've ever seen from this genre and although it took me a while to truly get into it,once I did,the 3 hours flew right past me.

    What I found…

    A Touch of Spice

    ★★★★

    I've seen a substantially low amount of Greek films and that is an error I am planning to correct in the future.I've seen roughly 30 greek comedies from the 50s but I don't remember them well enough to rate them.

    I started with The Ogre of Athens but it was a massive letdown as there wasn't much I liked about it.So I decided to watch the most acclaimed Modern Greek film,A touch of Spice,and it was fantastic.

    While not without…

    ★★★

    Been a while since I had a Hot Take,but judging from everyone's scores for this film,this is definetely one of those cases.

    There is a lot to love/rave about this film.The casting is excellent and Pitt is outstanding in his role.Once again Roger Deakins does not disappoint as the cinematography here is nothing less of what you would expect from him.The score is fantastic.The script is extensively researched and manages to be as objective as possible showing both sides of…

    I always wondered how Chewi & Han met..now I know.

    I mean,it took me more than a year to finally watch this so my expectations were quite low.Nevertheless I am pretty surprised by how much I actually enjoyed this.I gotta give credit to Alden Ehrenreich who was easily the best part of this film and a great Han Solo.

    Still it was a waste of potential.I think this could've been a really great film if they…

    Kubrick Ranking

    If you count Dr.Strangelove as a war film then the top 3 greatest war films I've ever seen are now all directed by Stanley Kubrick.Pretty crazy if you ask me.

    Paths of Glory makes the best use of a theme that is present in nearly all the Kubrick films I've seen so far and that is…
