Here's what I've been watching so far this month.
JERICHO - It took me a few years but I finally finished watching the second season. The show was decent and I don't mind it ending after only 29 episodes. Not very memorable.
THE KILLING - First half is quite slow but then it ups the ante and the final half is pretty great. It's quite obvious the robbery itself was an inspiration for such movies as HEAT and THE DARK KNIGHT. 4/5
WAKING LIFE - Some of the conversations were quite interesting but it's gets nauseating to watch it after a while. When you put the director's earlier films SLACKER and SCANNER DARKLY together, this is what you get pretty much on the point. 3/5
DARK ANGEL aka. I COME IN PEACE - A rather shitty science fiction/cop movie starring Dolph Lundgren. The disc-throwing blonde alien was pretty funny to watch I admit. 2/5
PATHS OF GLORY - A gloriously shot war film. Great performances all around especially by Kirk Douglas. I love it how you won't get to see the enemy once in the entire movie. I've yet to see LOLITA and then I've seen all of Stan's movies. 4/5
LÅT DEN RÄTTE KOMMA IN - It hurts me to say this but swedish know how to make movies so much better than us. I don't generally like vampire flicks myself but this was so different with great young leads that I really enjoyed it. Some really cool scenes. 4/5
THIN BLUE LINE - A documentary of an incident from the seventies in the US where a man shot a cop when he pulled him over on the side of the road and an innocent man was put in jail. 3/5
GHOST OF MARS - You'd never believe the director of this movie made such classic movies as HALLOWEEN and THE THING. Everything about this movie sucks except Henstridge's figure. Ice Cube is such a bad actor, oh dear. Pam Grier was totally wasted in this movie. 2/5
NEAR DARK - Early Kathryn Bigelow movie about vampires. You have the ALIENS/TERMINATOR trio here, Lance Henriksen, Bill Paxton and Jenette Goldstein. Beautifully shot and a bit different than your average horror films from the 80s. 3/5
V2 - JÄÄTYNYT ENKELI - This lousy finnish detective movie shot partly in my old film school. 2/5
EXORCIST - I hadn't seen this in like 15 years and it was just as great as I remembered it to be. This truly is one of the scariest films ever made. So damn well directed by Friedkin. 4,5/5
THE GREAT DICTATOR - Can't believe it took me this long to see this classic of a movie. Some very funny scenes, but I prefer for instance GOLD RUSH quite a lot over this. 3,5/5
THE BOX - A really disappointing movie from R.Kelly who made his impressive debut DONNIE DARKO back in 2001. Starts off decent when it's a basic thriller but then when the supernatural kicks in it goes downhill fast. 2,5/5
