Trend of the evening: women in pantsuits! Octavia Spencer, sadly not receiving a deserving Supporting Actress award, but looking super hot! Also sexiest woman of […]

Review: La La Land (2016)

Three words: Imaginative, Inspirational, Magical. That’s pretty much the best way that I can sum up „La La Land“ by Damien Chazelle. The story of struggling actress Mia (Emma Stone) and struggling Jazz musician Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), who find each other in the midst of Los Angeles and their embarking love story, is a nod […]

Review: Fences (2016)

Viola Davis and Denzel Washington! WOW! Just wow! At least that’s what I thought and expected. After sitting through „Fences“ for, what felt like forever, I am not quite sure what I enjoyed less. Denzel’s character Troy or his directing. Going into a movie not knowing anything about it, is most times very refreshing. No […]

Review: Loving (2016)

2016 has, in many ways, been a dark year. Next to terrorist attacks in Europe, racially bias attacks have plastered the front pages of newspapers. In such modern times it seems unbelievable that there are still people out there who judge others by the color of their skin, or their sexuality. What better year than […]

Review: Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

Like I mentioned in Lion „Based on True Story“ films are always a little more interesting, a little more unbelievable, a little more jaw-dropping. This world has gone through too many wars, is still going through a battle between love and hate, that seems to be won by the bad side. Many of the heroic […]

Review: Lion (2016)

„Based on a true story“ films are always very interesting. Even though it is fascinating that through films, or more specific through a writer’s or director’s mind, we can explore different times, planets and therefore embark on sometimes unimaginable adventures, the fact that there are real-life stories out there worth putting on film,  is even […]

Review: Moonlight (2016)

New York is my home at heart. After living there for two years pursuing acting and film, it’s a pleasure and heartbreaking at the same time to come back. When I do come back there are two things that are on top of my to-do list. First: See friends and friends who have become family. […]

Review: Hidden Figures (2016)

Black women only recently received a voice in Hollywood. With TV shows such as „Orange is the New Black“, „Scandal“ and „How to get away with Murder“ strong female lead characters of color became recognized. In a year like 2016 it really shouldn’t be of discussion if leading characters are male or female or what […]

Review: Assassin’s Creed (2016)

Making a film based on  a beloved computer game with millions of true fans and players is a high risk. Not only can you manage to make a bad film but, with this type of genre, you can build a rebellious uproar against you, to the extent of killing your career. When Cal Lynch (Michael […]

Review: Nice Guys (2016)

When you are able to predict from the trailer what this film is going to be like…you’re awesome. I on the other hand can’t figure out if this was the best or the worst film ever. I saw the trailer of „Nice Guys“ at the movies for the first and only time. Honestly, I immediately […]
