DIRECTED BY Terence Davies


Gorgeously lighted coming-of-age film chock-full of old music and '50s nostalgia. Reminded me a lot of The Spirit of the Beehive, but similarly to that film, left me kind of cold emotionally, unfortunately.

Pretty alright FedEx commercial considering that Tom Hanks is one of the few actors I actually dislike and that it has no right to last more than two hours.

Once you've seen about three Kaurismäki films, you pretty much know what to expect: approximately 3.5 stars. Kaurismäki seems to get less subtle as he gets older, but this is still pretty sweet.

DIRECTED BY Oliver Stone


The only one of the Big Four of Vietnam War films I hadn't seen; I guess because I had a hunch it would be as mediocre it was. The message of the movie is that USA would've won the war if Willem Dafoe was sent to fight it alone.

DIRECTED BY Terrence Malick


Christian Bale, the Dark Knight of Cups, visits rich people's cribs and walks around the beautiful wilderness, looking equally worried everywhere he goes. I'm almost as worried for my inevitable re-watch of Tree of Life which I held in very high regard back in 2011: did Malick's style actually work better there or have I just grown tired of it altogether?

DIRECTED BY Akira Kurosawa


Kurosawa was amazing with colours (too) and Tatsuya Nakadai is always awesome, but this film is way too long. Also kind of lost track of who is who and what their motives are at some point but that's more a problem of my stupidity.

DIRECTED BY Mike Mills


Ei ole tarkoituksella mikään Elle Fanning -putki menossa. Hyvän mielen nostalgiafiilistely 1970-luvun lopusta, joka luottaa vähän liikaa kertojaääneen ja jonka historialliset viittaukset tuovat ikävällä tavalla Forrest Gumpin mieleen. Ajattelin illalla, että annan tälle joko 3,5 tai 3 tähteä sen mukaan, onko elokuvan tuomasta lämpimästä fiiliksestä minkä verran vielä aamulla jäljellä. Ei paljoa.

DIRECTED BY Nicolas Winding Refn


Pari viimeisintä Refnin leffaa on jäänyt vähän roikkumaan johonkin kiusalliseen limboon taide- ja roskaleffan välillä sillä tavalla, että niistä on hankala lopulta saada oikein mitään irti. Tämäkin on liian ryppyotsainen puhtaaksi eksploitaatioksi ja liian lapsellinen ja sisällötön oikeasti kiinnostavaksi satiiriksi. Onneksi sinänsä kiva audiovisuaalinen tyyli kantaa niin Neon Demonia kuin Only God Forgivesiakin sen verran, että ne jaksaa ainakin kertaalleen läpi katsella.

Todellista silmäkarkkia The Gaten jälkeen katsottuna, etenkin kun aiemman leffan DVD-kopio oli tasoa järkyttävä kusipaska. Black Christmasissa on tyylikästä ja varmaan aika pioneerimaista slasher-meininkiä, mutta valitettavasti myös jonnin verran tyhjäkäyntiä keskivaiheilla. Aloitus ja lopetus on kuitenkin todella kovaa kamaa.

Tän leffan aikana ois voinu pelata jotain kasarileffabingoa, koska tässä oli kaikki aikakauden kliseet läsnä pitsasta korvalappustereoihin ja heavy metallista pastelliväreihin. Hyvää fiilistä siis, ja efektit oli ihan hauskoja myös. Muuta hyvää sanottavaa tästä onkin sitten vähän hankala keksiä. Tuntui 85 minuutin kestossaankin liian pitkältä.

Nazipunksploitation. A consistently fun, thrilling film with a nice premise that gets some minus points for the darker scenes in which you can't see shit. Would be no surprise if the lighting crew from the fourth Die Hard film were involved.

A horror anthology film told within a frame story of a recurring nightmare. Marred by the annoying and unfunny golf sequence, but some of the stories are surprisingly creepy still. The cinematography's quite nice, too.

Dracula (1931)

DVD, 1st viewing
DIRECTED BY Tod Browning


The film begins very strongly: the Transylvania scenes have a really nice atmosphere and beautiful gothic images. Skipping the mindnumbingly boring sea voyage section, I was expecting to like this more than Murnau's Nosferatu, but then the second is unfortunately drawn-out and uninteresting, what with Van Helsing & co. explaining all things related to the plot and vampire mythology in general. A commendable effort, in any case.

P.S. A friend of mine advised me not to watch the film with Philip Glass' score. I gave that a quick shot, since that was included as an extra on my DVD, and it seems like it completely butchers the film's atmosphere. So yeah, I would probably not recommend that.

Syytän osittain pakotettuja katseluolosuhteita, mutta ei tämä kyllä jaksanut kauheasti kiinnostaa. Elokuvan paras hahmo, Marilyn Burnsin hahmon käsittämättömän sekava aviomies, kuolee aivan liian varhain.

Ihan hauska idea, mutta vitsit eivät kyllä naurata yhtään elikkäs ovat toisin sanoen aivan paskoja. Tai ei välttämättä edes vitsit sinänsä, vaan niiden esitystapa: liikaa ilveilyä. Samasta syystä suurin osa stand-up-komiikasta on mielestäni yhdentekevää. Lisäksi "Chadiä" esittävä äijä saa ihon rullautumaan paikoiltaan kuin sanomalehdenkulma kynttilän yllä, jos tässä nyt runolliseksi heittäytyy. Splatter-hetket olivat varmaan elokuvan vahvimpia osa-alueita, ja sanoma kommunikaation tärkeydestä sinällään oli ihan kiva.

A total mess and not very fun at that for the most part. Badly paced film that got tiresome kind of quickly. Gotta like the splatter effects of the era and the silly-ass jazz-funk spider scene, though.

To be commended for evoking claustrophobia extremely successfully; I almost wish the entire film was focused on that, instead of the cave-dwellers who are a tad lame in the end. The action scenes could've been directed better, and I found the characters pretty annoying. Nevertheless, this film has a cool premise and I think it succeeds pretty well as a genuinely thrilling horror film.
