The Terminator (1984)

Terminator review

Various movie franchises exist where I suffer from selective memory loss. In my movie mind a second and third Hangover movie don’t exist, Analyze This never got a sequel and after the first Matrix movie only some spectacular outtakes appeared. After the first two Terminator movies it was a shame no others were made. It was time to revisit those two movies, starting with the first one. Continue reading

Snabba Cash 3 (2013)

Review Snabba Cash 3

The last part of the Snabba Cash (or Easy Money) trilogy takes a further look into the lives of the characters of the first two parts. JW leaves for the United States to find out what happened to his sister who disappeared years ago and Jorge is also trying to change his life and escape the criminal environment. Does this third movie succeed in keeping the same high level as the previous two movies? Continue reading

The Raid 2 (2014)

The Raid 2 review

One of the best action movies of the last couple of years in my book is The Raid. The story could be summarized in one sentence (a police team has to fight their way up a building to arrest the leader of a criminal gang), but more wasn’t needed. This was because the film offered one thing in abundance: Action. Adrenaline pumping, raw action. It is no surprise that I couldn’t wait to check out the sequel and my expectations were very high. Does The Raid 2 manage to meet them? Continue reading

Snabba Cash II (Easy Money 2) (2012)

Recensie Snabba Cash 2

The second part of Snabba Cash continues the story of the criminals introduced in the first part. A couple of years after the events of the first movie one of them is released from prison. Hij has plans to better his life and stay away from criminality, but unfortunately that turns out to be harder than expected. What came to pass in the first part has had its impact on others resulting in bigger roles for minor characters from part 1. Revenge, quick money and double-crosses are the order of the day again. Continue reading

Snabba Cash (Easy Money) (2010)

Review Snabba Cash

Sometimes you discover trilogies you have never heard of before. This was the case for me with the “Stockholm trilogy”, which is known over here as Snabba Cash or Easy Money. As this is a Scandinavian movie series it isn’t that surprising I had not heard of them as these movies simply do not get as much publicity as American movies. When a movie spawns several sequels, it usually means that the first movie was good (and successful) as movie studios usually don’t put money into something which flopped. Continue reading

Cold Comes the Night (2013)

Review Cold Comes the Night

Lots of people are probably not aware that Breaking Bad actor Bryan Cranston already has had a long career. Looking at his IMDB profile he already has 132 TV show and movie titles to his name. Thanks to his role as the meth making scientist in Breaking Bad he became well-known and he appeared in some high-profile movies like Drive, John Carter, Total Recall, Argo and Godzilla. In most of these movies he had supporting roles, but in this movie the 58-year-old actor is starring, together with Alice Eve. Continue reading
