Rogue One – a grim (and long) Star Wars Story

Our annual little ritual happened yesterday and so just like every year my brother and me went out to see “that big movie of the year” because it so happens the week between Christmas and New Year’s is about the only time we can actually coordinate things to fall in place. It also helps that […]

Toruk – the first Cirque

My relationship to the Avatar movie has always been somewhat ambiguous. I still occasionally watch the thing on DVD (no, the extended director’s cut hasn’t really salvaged this mess) as a guilty pleasure when I’m just in the mood for something really dumb, but other than that I’m probably one of the few people who’s […]

To boldly go… Beyond!

Since due to my eternal health issues I’m still stuck at home a lot, I┬árarely ever get to go to the cinema these days. Usually I don’t mind too much, but this year I came close to disobeying my doctors’ recommendation of not staying in crowded, air-conditioned venues so as to not pick up infections […]

The 4th of Frank

The United States of Frank

It’s a coincidence that today is Valentine’s, but of course it’s a fitting hook to talk about Frank again. What do you think he would give Claire on a day like this? Totally nothing! He would consider it pathetic just like his birthday gifts. This little example beautifully begins to offer insight in the mind […]

Quite Frank-ly

The best way to watch a good series is binging on it, is it not? So with a long weekend with lots of downtime in bed (infection again) I have managed to breeze through season 2 of House of Cards. My brain still hurts from all the complexity! As much as I like being intellectually […]
