Cinderella (2015)

A live-action re-make of the animated film which is a part of that fleeting moment when Disney made some remarkable productions like Frozen, The Princess and the Frog or Maleficent. First of all it is not a musical, then it is not a Tom and Jerry episode and also it’s not a dumb comedy. But what […]

Cinderella (1950)

Tom and Jerry in… Cinderella. An animated movie with unfitting pointless musical parts and even more pointless unfitting animals parts. Did they think that old fairy tale is too boring for usa kids, so they have to spruce it up with awful slapstick and talking mice? More than the half of the runtime is taken […]

Confessions d’un Barjo

Exodus: Gods and Kings

Ramses’ new groove. A kind of light-calorie peplum, which possesses all of the ingredients, but doesn’t make you sick after 2:30 runtime.

I’m not convinced that […]

Isaac Asimov — Foundation

It’s not always easy to fit an unfitting. Despite the fact that I can’t remember any other books with such structure, this one still feels tired and unoriginal. Other writers too had their own universes and when they did not have stories in them, but still wanted to describe future technologies they came up with, […]

Dunkirk (2017)

— Nolan! Your movie is falling into the blender! — No worries, lass! To be fair, people with very high IQ are bloody fond of salads. — Nolan! Nolan! Nolan, stahp! Your movie is a mash! You know, i was quite fond of the Nolan’s movies, even with barely passable Batman Begins, entertaining but really […]
