The Diary of a Teenage Girl (2015)

Movie

The days and weeks, months even, I spent waiting for this movie seemed endless and I didn’t even know why I was waiting. I had not seen the trailer, I was vaguely aware of what the premise was, but something told me to wait for it, so I did. Then, suddenly, the waiting was done and I could watch the movie I had anticipated for so long: and oh, how glad I was that I waited.…

The Martian (2015)

Movie

Ever since I read Andy Weir’s book The Martian, I’ve been itching to see its screen adaption with Matt Damon as Mark Watney. Anticipation was definitely there, expectations were definitely high and even though it didn’t bump Mad Max: Fury Road off its pedestal, The Martian hit all the right notes and is an amazing example of a sci-fi movie that makes you wonder how capable the human race is against the vast and mysterious universe.…

The Skeleton Twins (2014)

Movie

With movies like The Skeleton Twins, one hopes for something great but as the negativity in reviews crawled around the corner, I set my exceptions low. But how low can you go when you have comic veterans Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader on screen doing something out of their comfort zone? Apparently not low enough for The Skeleton Twins to shine.…

Hateship Loveship (2013)

Movie

Spoilers are up ahead. Me and Saturday Night Live alumni Kristen Wiig have a complicated relationship, it’s sort of a love and hate thing actually. Every time I see her face, I’m reminded of the horror that was Bridesmaids for me but there’s no denying that the woman can act. The fact is proven by her excellent work in Hateship Loveship, where her character Johanna made me feel quite uncomfortable multiple times, but in a good way!…

Despicable Me 2 (2013)

Movie

This is it guys, my first review of this summer and hopefully not the last one. As a rule, I wouldn’t have gone to see Despicable Me 2 (I wanted to see World War Z or This Is the End), because animations in the cinema aren’t my thing but I wasn’t going to be picky – I simply missed watching movies too much. Sadly, the feeling of joy that was upon me prior to the movie, slowly but steadily disappeared.…

# 193 – Bridesmaids

Movie

My latest cinema experience was the Hangover female version Bridesmaids with Kristen Wiig and Chris O’Dowd as the main couple. There were many other women in this one but most of them unknown except Melissa McCarthy who had the most uncomfortable role in this movie (and during her career I might add) along with her husband. That being said – the main issue that I have with this movie is the plot. I mean, really? The way it was played…

# 184 – Paul

Movie

Since my town (which isn’t that small!) doesn’t have a cinema I decided to “build” one: I know show a variety of movies in my basement to those who bother showing up and who are also invited cause it’s free of charge. So it really isn’t a cinema and thinking about the rather small screen it can hardly be called a TV-watching-space also  – which at the moment isn’t the point at all. The point is, that me and some…
