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

Da 5 Bloods (2020)
The Girl with All the Gifts (2016)
Very interesting premise and pretty good execution, but I feel like it could've been better. Maybe it would've been better as a 10 episode series or something. Good cast, delivering good performances.
Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942)
Oh man, I think love this movie. I knew that James Cagney was an amazing gangster actor, maybe the best one ever. And I've seen some comedy acting by him, but this has to be his best comedy movie. It's just SO funny! Definitely one of my favourite movies from the 40's and probably my second favourite comedy from that decade. I may be biased a bit because I adore James Cagney.
Great cast, spearheaded by Cagney. The music, dance and everything else. Very good story, albeit very american. But that's the point I guess.
So yeah... despite not being american I really enjoyed this great, great movie!
Green Room (2015)
Rewatched this one yesterday evening and it's still a great movie! Very intense. Highly recommended.
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988)
Steve Martin and Michael Caine play so well off each other. Great story. And the ending is fantastic. Definitely watch this if you wanna have a good time. Very fun movie.
Phantom Thread (2017)
Very good movie, interesting story, great costume and set design and Daniel Day-Lewis' masterful performance was definitely a level above everything else in this movie.
Despite being a bit on the slower side, the pacing of the movie was very good. At least in my opinion. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the mood for a drama.
Queen & Slim (2019)
Such a great and powerful movie. Great performances by Daniel Kaluuya, very promising newcomer Jodie Turner-Smith and the supporting cast.
Screenplay by the great Lena Waithe. Amazing feature directorial debut by Melina Matsoukas. It's not very action-packed all the time, but it's good like that. It's still very suspenseful. The ending was way too real, but
sadly a logical conclusion to a story like this. If you don't cry at the end or at least have a big lump in your throat something's wrong with you.
A must-watch, especially in these times!
Marathon today or just plain bored?
I've been watching three movies a day for the whole last week. Just bored. :D
Gods of Egypt - popcorn
The Vast of Night - entertaining
I think I'm one of the few that loved Gods of Egypt. Chadwick Boseman was awesome as Thoth.
Good suspense, nice atmosphere and captivating story. I liked the performances in this movie, even though I'm not a huge Mel Gibson fan.
Eye in the Sky (2015)
Me being a fan of Alan Rickman and this technically being his last movie (although Alice Through the Looking Glass was released later and he had a voice
acting role in that) was definitely a part of why I decided to watch this movie.
Very suspenseful, especially because most of the plot unfolds in real time. Good, realistic performances. The movie is surprisingly good.
Mother's Day (1980)
A movie about the Monkees (who you may probably know from this song (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PQAqprjOuA). I mean I know the Monkees, but I'm not like a superfan of them, but I still enjoyed this. It's described as a satirical musical adventure film, but I would add a lot of experimentalism to that. Not really one coherent story. It's funny, though. Pretty nonsensical, but that's the fun about it. Written by Jack Nicholson,
by the way. This movie also has Frank Zappa with a talking cow. You can't say that about a lot of movies.
At under 90 minutes it also doesn't overstay its welcome.
Dredd (2012), very underrated
Oh, definitely. It's better than the original, as much as I like that campy stuff.
Oooh, it's one of the best films shot in 3D from early 2010s. Slo-mo scenes were so satisfying to watch in 3D.
Manchester by the Sea (2016)
What a great performance by Casey Affleck! Beautiful cinematography. It's a movie about grief, so it doesn't have a lot of action but that's just how it is. Very slow, but very realistic.
Night of the Comet (1984)
Fun little '80's zombie horror comedy. Very entertaining. Nothing outstanding or super original, but it was definitely fun.
Frances Ha (2012)
This one is really good. I'm slowly becoming a big Noah Baumbach movie. And Greta Gerwig was perfectly cast. It's very personal and I enjoyed that.
The Girl Next Door (2004)
This one is a rom-com. Decent plot about a highschooler who falls in love with a porn star. Basically just another teen movie, though. Entertaining, but not very good. It's just a popcorn movie. Timothy Olyphant was good, though.

The Girl Next Door (2007)
This one is a horror drama. Talk about torture. Holy fuck. Very intense movie. Definitely not for everyone. Even as a huge horror movie fan I thought this was fucked up. And the worst thing is, it's based on real events. And those are "widely regarded by Indiana citizens as the worst crime ever committed in their state and have been described by a senior investigator in the Indianapolis Police Department as the "most sadistic" case he had ever investigated in the 35 years he served with the Indianapolis police." (Don't look up the wikipedia article about the case, it's even worse than what was shown in the movie.)
So this movie is absolutely not for the squeamish. It's definitely one of the most disturbing movies I've ever seen.
Now watch An American Crime also based off of the same events but told in a more accurate rendition.
Thanks, I'll put it on my list.
Also very interesting that they came out in the same year, considering the whole thing happened in the mid '60s and suddenly there are multiple movies about it released in the same year about 40 years later.
The Girl Next Door (1953)
This one is a musical comedy. Interesting story. Some of the songs don't feel as diegetic in the movie as I've seen with other musicals. Has some pretty nice animated parts in it.
So yeah. Today was fun. Three totally different movies with the same title.
Very good drama with great performances by Gene Hackman and Al Pacino as two drifters. Sadly a box-office failure when it came out, so it's not a very well-known movie, but often cited by both Pacino and Hackman as one of their favorite films.
Palm Springs 👍
Hunt for the Wilderpeople 👍
They Shall Not Grow Old (2018)
First off: This could be a fantastic double feature with 1917 (2019). Both about WW1, this one much more intimate and real, being a documentary.
And it was an outstanding documentary! HIGHLY recommended! Stunning footage, lots of it never seen before, having sat in the vaults of London's Imperial War Museum for many years. It's about the experience of being a british soldier in WW1 told from the viewpoint of actual WW1 veterans.
