Boooring film. It has nothing to do with Kitano Takeshi's "Zatoichi". Too bad, because Katori Shingo is a good actor but in this film was totally idle [link]

Nicely done, and very good taste you have! I'll have to check in on this one now and then.

Oh good I'm not the only person who didn't like Sunshine. We even gave it the same rating. :)

I Love the look of this list .. I watched only 7 or 8 movies from those .. So, I'll check it once in a while to chose movies I want to watch from .. Great list :D

P.S I'm waiting your opinion about The Adjustment Bureau .. Cause I'm planning to watch it :))
Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at Jul 23 10:34
Hmm, seems we generally enjoy the same films, but I've noticed I often rate things just slightly higher. Maybe I'm more easily amused, you're tougher to please, or our rating criteria are just a bit different. Either way, glad to see you're keeping up with this list and continuing to watch some good and interesting films!
Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at Jul 25 8:50
Strange, because when I'm gonna give a vote I always round it up, if I think it's 6.5 I give 7, etc.
I mostly consider the script, how it's written and what the director transmits me. Everybody has his own criteria :)
