Pretending it makes total sense to have an oasis at the very peak of a mountain in a desert, Holes is not a movie without depth. But I’m not sure I can get behind the moral of the story which seems to be that… even if you haven’t done anything wrong, punishment can still build your character?
Am I being too cynical?
I can still dig it, though.
Bøndenes Brorskap: Franske Fristelser

The latest cult classic. I’m not going to bother saying anything about it. Just watch it, that’s an order.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
What to say…. Should I mention the shouting drama performed by the really bad actors? The constant lack of steady-cam? Or the whiney “boohoo, what’s the rebels ever done for meeeeee”-scenes? Or maybe I should mention the horrible CGI – I’m certain I saw occlusion errors in some scenes. Speaking of CGI, I should probably gloss over the fact that Moff and Leia were CGI-characters. And let’s pretend to ignore the shitty dialogue, and the stereotypical table-top RPG-plot. And to even consider criticising the physics modeling would just be silly.
Oh, I know; Not as awful as Episode 2. Not quite as awful. Probably.
Oh, by the way, a happy bouncy announcy: this officially marks the (jump) start of 2017: The Year Of Weekly Cinema.
Trump willing, etc….
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Stylistically acceptable, but virtually devoid of any real content. Perhaps the first film that is simply merchandise of another film. Nothing to see here!
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
10/10 (again with the kid scores)
… men Olsenbanden var ikke død!
10/10, so sayeth the kid
Liked the Apatow bits, hated the Sandler-bits. Good when it didn’t try to be funny. Watch it while doing chores!
Guardians of the galaxy
So that was fun. Even the comic relief didn’t piss me off. Nice job.

A snoozer of a stamped out futuristic action-thriller that steals quasiphilosophic points left, right and center from everything from Blade Runner to The Matrix.
I’m pretty sure I saw Westworld (the movie) sometime during the eighties, but I don’t have any memories of it, and I’m certain I haven’t seen the new TV series, so that’s an accusation I won’t make right there.
Sometimes quite annoying, but on the whole decent light-hearted non-scifi scifi. It helps if you think of it as an animated movie with live actors.
