Labyrinthus (2014)

Review Labyrinthus

When it comes to children’s tv and movies there is one company which pretty much dominates that market, which is the Belgian Studio 54 which has a wide range of successful franchises. You’d almost forget that other companies make movies as well, but Labyrinthus is a great example of one checking out. An exciting movie for the older kids. Continue reading

Interstellar (2014)

Review Interstellar

If there was one movie in the past year (besides the Interview) about which a whole lot of things were written, it was Interstellar. After its release my mailbox and Feedly were flooded with reviews, news articles and pieces which tried explaining the theory behind the movie. It was an overload of information and at the time I didn’t feel like adding too much. Continue reading

Pioneer (2014)

Review Pioneer

At the start of the seventies oil is discovered in the North Sea. Norway had difficulty in getting this oil to land and had to do several test dives in order to find out if it was possible to lay a pipe. If they were able to do this it would mean a lot of money for the country. As tests at this depth were never done before, the Norwegians decided to work together with an American company. The Norwegian brothers Petter and Knut are part of the diving team and are the first ones to do a test dive. When a tragic accident takes place at the ocean floor it is Petter who decided to find the cause for it. It is an investigation which becomes more dangerous to him when he seems to discover a conspiracy. Continue reading

Secret Window (2004)

Review Secret Window

The work of writer Stephen King has been a great source for various series and movies. I can remember watching them when I was young (for example It and Christine). The most famous movie based on his work is probably The Shining (which King actually doesn’t like). Another movie I strongly remember is The Mist, mainly for its haunting ending. The mysterious and supernatural atmosphere of the movies is something I’m always able to enjoy. Secret Window is also a “Stephen King film” I’ve know about for years, but hadn’t come around to watching. Continue reading

Coherence (2013)

Review Coherence

I’ve always had a big preference for movies which make you think. To make it even more specific, movies which play with what reality is or in which things can’t be explained easily. Movies like Donnie Darko, Primer, Upstream Color or Under the Skin are great examples of that. It is also the reason why Mr.Nobody is still in my all time top 3 movies. Coherence is a movie which starts out normal, but quickly turns into a fascinating mystery. Continue reading

Hamlet’s Ghost (2014)

Review Hamlet's Ghost

Throught he years the time travel genre has given us quite a lot exciting movies. Most will probably think of Back to the Future series first, but movies like Timecrimes, Primer, Looper, The Time Machine and Donnie Darko are just a few examples which are also worth checking out. It is one of my favorite genres and when director Walker Haynes asked me if I wanted to check out his time travel movie Hamlet’s Ghost I didn’t hesitate for a moment. Continue reading
