Ozark (Season 2)

Tv-show

It’s been ages since I last reviewed a TV show, but it’s now time to tackle the second season of Ozark. Going in with high expectations felt inevitable, since I adored the first season so much. Find out if the pressure of expectations got the better of season 2, and whether the Byrde family is close to getting out of trouble.…

Ozark (Season 1)

Tv-show

Before watching Ozark, I thought Mindhunter was definitely going to win my number one spot for best Netflix show of the year. Granted, there are still many promising first place contenders coming up (Stranger Things 2, The Punisher), but I didn’t expect Ozark to push Mindhunter of its pedestal so quickly. Should have seen it coming though, since I’ve always had a soft spot for Jason Bateman, and his character Martin Byrde is especially intriguing.…

The Gift (2015)

Extra

I have dedicated some paragraphs to spoilers. Some weeks ago, on a Thursday evening, the latest I’ve gone to the cinema in a while, I intended to enjoy a movie that was going to be thrilling and exciting. Now, it was something, but it wasn’t as thrilling as I hoped it would be. Nevertheless, The Gift was actually a rather interesting psychological movie focusing on a popular topic from a fresh angle. Plus, thanks to this movie, gift giving now has a…

Identity Thief (2013)

Movie

Identity Thief marks the first 2013 release I have gotten to see and well, I’m just the opposite of thrilled of that fact. Seriously, what was I thinking with actually watching this movie when I’m well aware of my continues dislike towards the comedies Hollywood is proudly pushing down my throat? Who knows, because among the few laughs I somehow managed to get and the smouldering Jason Bateman, who I usually enjoy, Identity Thief is yet another comedy I did…

# 218 – The Change-Up

Movie

Keeping things on the fun side (before I do a short summary of this years Emmy Awards) I’m continuing with The Change-Up which I saw a couple of weeks ago. While I have the up-most respect for Jason Bateman (I just like him so much) I find Ryan Reynolds a bit annoying. I think it’s because I have seen him so much and he always seems to play the same characters. But I’m not gonna get into my subjective opinions…

# 189 – Horrible Bosses

Movie

Due to my Summer brake which means I have a lot of free time on my hands, I managed to go to the cinema twice (in June) – Horrible Bosses was my second choice and I was utterly thrilled about it. It seems that this is my 2011 favorite comedy so far and I think that it has a lot to do with the fact that the cast looks like the crown jewel of Hollywood. Starting with Jason Bateman, Jason…

# 184 – Paul

Movie

Since my town (which isn’t that small!) doesn’t have a cinema I decided to “build” one: I know show a variety of movies in my basement to those who bother showing up and who are also invited cause it’s free of charge. So it really isn’t a cinema and thinking about the rather small screen it can hardly be called a TV-watching-space also  – which at the moment isn’t the point at all. The point is, that me and some…

# 171 – Horrible Bosses

Movie

In this rate this summer is going to be very funny because another good comedy has released its trailer: Horrible Bosses. One thing that makes this probably my most favorite out of all the comedies this summer is the list of actors in it. Starting with Jason Bateman, Kevin Spacey, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Colin Farrell, Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Aniston! This has all the comedy stars in one movie and it seems that it’s all what a great comedy…

# 95 – The Switch

Movie

Jennifer Aniston was one of my favorites  a while back but then she broke up with Brad Pitt and it has gone down hill ever since. Her Cougar Town role was absolutely horrible but what do you expect when you are a guest star to a show that is the lamest thing on television at the moment (to my knowledge)! But that was only 20 minute show where Aniston was on screen for like 5 minutes or so – The…
