The Third Man [1949] ★★★★

 “In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.  In Switzerland they had brotherly love – they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock”. Terrific […]

The Great Buck Howard [2008]

An almost forgotten movie that deserved more attention at the time of its release.  It’s the story of a man (Colin Hanks) who quits law school and becomes  assistant to an illusionist in decline. His father (played by Tom Hanks) has other plans. Funny, and full of surprises, this well […]

The Corpse Vanishes [1942]

“I find a coffin much more comfortable than a bed”. Bela Lugosi as a mad scientist who abducts young brides, put them in a zombie-like state, take their blood, and inject it into his aging wife to keep her forever young. Need we say more? Bela Lugosi trivia: […]

Paper Heart [2009]

I don’t usually have a problem with documentary-like movies. But “Paper Heart” is pushing it. Is it real? is it all an act? We never really know. And by the time it’s over, we don’t really care anymore. This was supposed to be a sweet, romantic movie, but […]

Back To The Future [1985]

“Wait a minute, Doc, are you trying to tell me that my mother has got the hots for me?” If you can find a movie as original and fun to watch as “Back to the Future”, im all ears. With Robert Zemeckis behind the cameras, you know you’re […]

Predators [2010]

If you’re a fan of the “Predator” series, “Alien” and possibly “Aliens vs Predators”, then you will probably watch this one aswell. Others, be sure to know what you’re getting: an action movie that will surely mean nothing to you once it’s over. I must admit, I expected […]

Blindness [2008]

A town is suddenly struck by some kind of a virus, and everyone is going blind, except for one woman who seems to be immune to the disease. Though we don’t really know the origin of the virus, the movie takes us on a long journey of survival, […]

Knife In The Water [1962]

Roman Polanski’s first ever  movie as a director. I woulnd’t call it a masterpiece, but it’s a tense movie,  well directed and certainly worth mentioning. Polanski improved over the years, but any fan of his work should definitely check this one out. Fun fact: ” After the movie became known […]

Charade [1963]

“Marriage license? Did you say marriage license? Oh I love you Adam, Alex, Peter, Brian, whatever your name is. I hope we have a lot of boys and we can name them all after you”. Hitchcock style mystery finds Audrey Hepburn pursued by several men who want a […]
