My Filmviews

- What are yours?


This “trailer” pretty much descibes what you can expect here:

My name is Nostra and I live in the Netherlands (the dutch version of the site can be found here) and have been writing about movies for several years. I watch movies in almost any genre, except horror.

Don’t know which movies to watch? My Filmviews provides reviews for movie lovers of both old and new movies with my own opinions sprinkled on top.

I’m not afraid to go against popular views on movies and am always available to talk about movies here and on Twitter. Follow my passion for everything film.

    Hey man, really great blog. Can you check out my blog please. I really want to be a film critic one day. I don’t want to have a job I hate. I am 15, but don’t judge until you have checked it out. Also, can you follow if you like. Thanks.

    Just finished stalking you haha, great blog and you seem to have great taste in films. One question, your top 3 picks for 2012?

    • Nostra says:

      As long as you keep it to stalking on my blog that’s alright with me ;) Thanks for the kind words. Top 3 picks. Already know 2 movies which will definitely be in my top 3 and those are The Intouchables (french movie) and The Raid (love action movies), as for the third one I have not decided yet but I really like Killing Them Softly, Martha Macy May Marlene, Prometheus and Skyfall….

    LOVE movie reviews! Thank you for stopping by and liking my post! Can’t wait to see what you have to say about “Silver Linings Playbook”. (Please be gentle; I adored the book and have a major girl crush on Jennifer Lawrence.) Thanks again!

      Enjoy reading the reviews :)

    Why don’t watch horror films?

      With a few exceptions I just can’t enjoy them. I don’t like to choose to scare myself voluntarily :)

    I just realised that I was not following you! I thought for sure that I had thanked you for following my site and was returning the favour, but somehow, I obviously did not. I hang my head with shame and have now rectified the mistake. Cheers mate! :-D

      No problem Mike! Happy to hear you are following now!

    Great blog! I will definitely be looking forward to upcoming reviews and some of your recommendations. I also have a recommendations page on my blog; check it out if you get a chance. :)

    • Nostra says:

      Great, but since you replied as anonymous I have no idea how to get to your blog.

    Thanks for dropping by the blog! This is quite an impressive site. Substantive but nice on the eyes with the font, the visuals, and the way it’s segmented. Re: The latest Die Hard, Red Letter Media had fun with that one in their latest, and with the whole series, if you like their whacky approach. Thanks again!

      Thanks for the compliments and nice to know I have another follower! Looking forward to seeing you around.

  • Smash says:

    I’ve been poking around the site a bit and I’m curious. Why don’t you watch horror movies? It’s not my favourite genre, that’s for sure. I usually only go for classic slasher type stuff like Halloween and Friday the 13th. Stuff like Saw or Hostel is way too gory and uncomfortable for me. And I’m a bit of a scaredy cat too. Just wondered if it was the same for you, or if you have another reason?

    September 6, 2013 at 1:02 pm
    • Nostra says:

      Hi Smash! I guess I just don’t like the fact that they are uncomfortable to watch. I don’t seek out that feeling on purpose. The ones I did give a chance I loved (The Shining being a recent example), so I guess I built the genre up too much as something I do not like. I guess I should try out some more movies in that genre.
