Drop your socks and grab your crocs with Iron Man 2

Drop your socks and grab your crocs with Iron Man 2

When summer began we were treated with many great movies. One of them being IRON MAN 2, the sequel to 2008 surprise hit. For me however it was no surprise it would please me, since I am a Downey fan. Only this time I would be seeing him in a returning role for the very first time. Could he live up to the hype and can a comic based movie sequel be any good?

You want to Kiss the Frog, with The Princess and The Frog

You want to Kiss the Frog, with The Princess and The Frog

Most of you will probably not know “Kiss the Girl” from Peter André, but it was one of the theme songs from Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID and for a long time one of my favourite songs. Ah, the good old days when we were young and in love. However we are not talking about this Disney classic, but about THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG. One of the latest movie from the studios most of us know from childhood. So is this movie a true classic to the genre or is this just another ENCHANTED (or do I dare to say…

Chaos reigns in Antichrist

Chaos reigns in Antichrist

When Lars von Trier took his seat at the press conference following the première of his latest flick ANTICHRIST at last years Cannes Film Festival an aggrieved British journalist famously demanded that the notorious Danish director explain and justify why he made this movie. Although it is not unusual for clueless journalists to try and turn a controversial work by an auteur into a footnote sensational article, this time it was quite poignant to have one of cinema’s greatest living artists explain himself, since the dramatically overplayed outrage of this journalist and many of his peers was actually justified by…

The Lovely Bones is very lovely indeed

The Lovely Bones is very lovely indeed

Couple of Weeks ago Milly Boele from the Netherlands disappeared. The last thing we knew is that she was talking with her mum on the phone when she hung up saying: “There is a man at the front door”. After this conversation nobody has heard or seen a thing about her. She just vanished…

Take a breather with Whatever Works

WHATEVER WORKS is a movie you probably never have heard of. You will not have seen and never will. And that actually makes me sad, because WHATEVER WORKS brings the viewer an entertaining way on how to live life and how to deal with everyday issues.

It’s elementary with Sherlock Holmes

When Sneaky and myself wanted to see one of the early screenings of SHERLOCK HOLMES it seemed all seats were taken. Nothing new here of course, because early screenings are always sold out when it comes to “big” movies. But with this case we tried to get some seats that were reserved by others. The system failed on us and the seats could not be given to anyone else. So to actually get into the screening we decided to get tickets for another movie. We got past the checkpoints and we snuck to the seats we knew weren’t sold. We…

$500 mil. gives us AVATAR in 3D

When a friend told me about AVATAR I told him I heard about it, but wasn’t planning on seeing it premiere day. Fortune however wanted me to see this movie and when I got off from work a little bit earlier, I decided to go and watch it. New movies are best seen on their first day right?

NEW MOON is hardly new and contains no moon, only horny teenagers

Those of you who follow my Twitter will know that I watch more movies than I am able to write about (this is a silent hint to follow me). I still got some on the drawing board like Disney’s UP and Woody Allen’s WHATEVER WORKS, but my latest movie was so awful, I just had to put aside the more decent movies for this abomination. The movie in question NEW MOON, part 2 of The Twilight Saga, with TWILIGHT being the first one which was released last year and on DVD a couple of weeks ago.
