Here we go, I'll start.

Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark (2010) - This movie is a joke. At first it's interesting, then it's boring and then it's just funny/pathetic. And they put it in a "horror" genre. Words are not sufficient. Nosferatu is turning in his grave. 3/10

Sister (2018)

Damn, that one hits hard. If you have siblings, watch this movie and then go hug them.
Really good and a big contender for Best Animated Short.
Great animation!

Mรฉmorable (2019)

Beautiful animation. This one hits really hard. Dementia is my one of my biggest fears in life. This animated short really shows what it must feel like. I never want to experience that.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

What kind of of clusterfuck was that? It's like they suddenly realized that this is the last movie of the Skywalker saga so they crammed every character into it. Not gonna go into details, because I don't wanna spoil.
Otherwise the story is (especially in the later parts) a pretty good wrap-up for the whole saga. At least for a casual Star Wars watcher like me. Yes, it could've been written better, but the major plot-points were good.
Sound design, music and cinematography are really good. What else do you expect from a Star Wars movie?

Hellthy - 2/10. I mean, it's an okay concept I guess, but it's shit. It took me three days to finish this as I always fell asleep.

Crazy Lake - 2/10, why do I even bother, this is for watching people barely clothed and pretend it's a slasher movie.

Amityville Death House - 1/10, Mark Polonia - you're the worst, I love you.

Hellraiser - 9/10. I felt like I deserved to watch something awesome at last.

The Cave (2019)

Really good documentary about war and the female doctors in it. Similar to For Sama (2019), but still different in it's core. You should watch them both, they're both very important.

I like your choices this week :)
The Sentinel - such a goofy, fun horror movie and yet genuinely creepy as well. Hope you found the uncut version. The Hidden, of course and John Landis really likes First Men in the Moon - so do I. Race to Space looks interesting.

yep uncut, the one with nudity, blasphemy, LBJT and real carnies ๐Ÿ˜‰ the US version is only okay ๐Ÿ˜
Race to Space was plausible enough to draw me in with light humour, TV acting but it's good for an escape from reality ๐Ÿ™‚

What Did Jack Do? (2017)

David Lynch short about a detective (played by Lynch) interrogating a monkey (played by a monkey). Kinda weird, kinda funny, probably not everybody's cup of tea.

Bullyparade โ€“ Der Film (2017)

If you have never heard of the original Bullyparade or movies such as Der Schuh des Manitu (2001), (T)Raumschiff Surprise โ€“ Periode 1 (2004) or Lissi und der wilde Kaiser (2007) you probably won't enjoy this movie at all. It's relying a lot on you knowing and liking the characters from those movies. If you do know them you'll probably like this movie more. I liked it despite it's flaws.

Goldman v Silverman (2020)

Made by the Safdie brothers, starring Adam Sandler. If Uncut Gems was your main course, Goldman v Silverman can be your dessert. Best watched directly after Uncut Gems I guess. Very similar chaotic energy.

Rebel Without a Cause (1955)

Don't know why I've waited until the '20s to watch my first James Dean movie, but I did. So this was my first ever experience of James Dean on film. And damn, what a
talented guy he was! And to think that he was 2 years younger when he died that I am now?

About the movie: Great story, fantastic acting by James Dean and the rest of the cast.

Iron Sky: The Coming Race (2019)
I was expecting a trashy film, just like the first one which I enjoyed....but this was not just trashy but also trash.
The writing was pretty bad, I didn't really care for the characters and the story was just mediocre at best.

Terminator: Dark Fate
This might be a novel idea, if you keep repeating the same film and retconning the previous entries to justify serving the same formula, over and over again...please, dont! As bad as it was, the ending for Terminator 3 wasn't terrible, why not just go from there?
the alternate timelines have served no other purpose than to skip the writing process completely
2/10
Dark Waters
Its based on a true story. I mean, the case was real, it took 20 years to win that battle. The chemical in question, C8, used to make teflon, is most likely in your blood. Though the story mainly revolves around a lawyer trying to protect and find justice for a small town from a dupont chemical plant that was contaminating the waters nearby. Through negligence, corporate corruption, or the fact one lawyer was battling against a large corporation. The chemical ended resulting in cases of cancer and dead cattle due to the contaminated waters.
it's just how the film presents its drama and legal side of things. Its angry and formulaic, it's a movie. I guess if you want better you can watch a documentary.
5/10
Just Mercy
Another adaptation i didn't like all that much. i think it's a disservice to the actual person. It misses some essential points for focusing too much on one death row prisoner and the color of his skin.
when in fact, Bryan Stevenson represented multiple people on death row. It wasn't so much their race,although racism was part of it. but the fact the lower social class could not find equal access to justice, in a state with a death penalty.
Perhaps most strange is that this film inadvertently ends with the Post credits information completely twisting the otherwise happy ending.
you know how Ed Wood ends with everyone applauding and it's a great happy ending, then the credits role and everything else in his life went to shit. So in here, this big hollywood film, McMillian finally finds justice, and then they throw a ice bucket at you with some real facts.
it only makes sense, if i spent 6 years waiting in death row i would probably come out mentally broken as well, question is, why remove that from the film?
5/10

Memories of Murder (2003)

Brilliant crime drama by director Bong Joon-Ho based on real events. Starring Song Kang-ho among an equally talented cast. (So if you recently watched Parasite and want to check out more very good korean cinema from the same director with an actor who was also in Parasite, go and watch this.)
Very gripping thriller story, good cinematography, really good performances. The whole movie was great, but the latter half was particularly stunning.

Spoilery "fun" fact: While the murderer wasn't caught back then (so they couldn't portray it as if he was) in late 2019 the murderer confessed. He's already serving a prison sentence for raping and killing his sister-in-law, and now he confessed to all the murders from the case this movie is about.
