Top Gun: Maverick (2022)

The flight scenes are incredible and add like 2 rating points to the movie. Very, very well done. I enjoyed that part very much and is the only reason why I even wanted to watch this in the first place.

The overall story etc. is not that complicated to be honest. It's somehow quite simple, both in its plot and in its Hollywood-blockbusteriness. Not too much of anything and nothing stood out, though I really did not care for the story that much.

So: Like planes and dogfighting? Watch this. Don't? Don't.

Sansho The Bailiff (1954)

A colleague recommended this. It's a typical Japanese movie of the era, with all its quirks and whatnot.

It's a good movie though, but I feel it's one of those where you either have to:
1) really feel it, or
2) have a great cinematographic eye
in order to really appreciate and love it.

So not for everyone, I guess. I certainly didn't fit the criteria from above, so I was not particularly blown away by it.

Charlie Wilson's War (2007)

Interesting, quirky characters, based on real events and makes fun a bit of the American bureaucracy. What's not to like?

It's a bit funny, eventful and interesting throughout. A bit unexplored, yeah, but it sums up the events very well nonetheless. In this style, Pentagon Wars was much much better, but I quite liked this movie as well. The character of Gust Avrakotos was the highlight of the film for me.

Watched a bunch recently on long plane journeys

Kill Bill Vol 1 & 2
Fucking great. No one could even dream of making such a good movie today. 2 is my fav. Characters and style so good. 8/10

Snowpiercer

Starts well and then tanks hard as it goes on. Everything after the tunnel fight scene (epic) is shite. Doesn't make sense half the time, poor effort. 5.5/10

Batman Begins

Been a while, had very fond memories of this movie. I dont think it was as good as I remembered. The plot with Raz'al'gul actually makes no sense and the fight scenes are very badly done. Backstory is epic though, great idea. Still good movie though with lots to like. I think because this was the first ever super-hero movie that went serious it really took us by surprise back in the day, but in hindsight it has some flaws. 7.2/10

Saving Private Ryan

Fucking classic. The last good war movie that was made and none since have come close. Best opening to a movie ever? Forgot how many familiar actors appeared in this, even VIn Diesel. 8.8/10

Spider Man: No Way Home

Very shit. But when they bring all the three past spidermans together its very jokes. I loved that bit actually and the humor. Other than that its pure crap. 4/10
