The Beguiled (2017)

Movie

This review sort of contains spoilers. For years, I have kept a certain distance from Sofia Coppola and her movies due to them being extremely boring for my taste. They take forever to build up, they have very many empty-scenes (a term that I will explain later), and the payoff is usually unsatisfying. The reason I don’t necessarily like Sofia Coppola’s movies is because I have a hard time actually watching them, which makes The Beguiled a special one. But,…

Upside Down (2012)

Movie

HUGE spoiler alert. Though I should really narrow down the list of classics I have on my list (for BOT), I can’t hold back the need to criticize Upside Down like there’s no tomorrow.

Autobiographical story about Jack’s road trips around the America with his friends, On the Road features Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley and Kristen Stewart. Now, let’s be honest, Stewart? I am not even sure about Hedlund and Riley. Who knows, maybe the supporting roles by Kirsten Dunst, Tom Sturridge, Viggo Mortensen and…

# 224 – Melancholia

Movie

Not a very joyful way to start off the morning but I felt like it was the right time to talk about Lars von Trier’s Melancholia which is said to be inspired by his own depression. So you might already know what you are into when you are going to see this movie, the title gives it away pretty successfully in addition to the fact of inspiration. My Melancholia experience was actually very interesting, it was my first time at…
