So much has been written about "0D30"...a solid 93% at Rotten Tomatoes, five nominations by the Academy and apparently Kathryn Bigelow's best work so far. It was hard to go into this movie without high expectat... Read More...

Looper

It seems these days JGL does not make any mistakes, basically every movie he has been part of was in the top of either the critics rating or the box office. Also it seems that Bruce Willis is back, which is alw... Read More...

Misery

One more big hole in my movie database was filled over the weekend. This movie is shot with such simplicity and little 'sourroundings' with a total focus on the inter-relationship between the 2 main character... Read More...
