My love for movies is a great one; therefore, I've dedicated a bit of time to loving, hating and, above all, analyzing them in this corner of the internets. Don't be afraid to leave a comment, even if you don't know me. I don't bite, you know, and we may even start an interesting debate :3

The background is made by me from various posters and, if you're wondering - yes, I've seen all of the movies whose posters it's made from C: I also write book reviews when I happen to read something new...which doesn't happen too often but still: check out my awesomeness!

Note: no or minimal spoilers included. Big spoilers are flagged like this and don't take away from the review if you don't read them.

By genre:
Action | Adventure | Animation | Bad Movie | Biography | Black & White | Book-to-Movie | Comedy | Crime | Drama
Fantasy | Horror | Mindfuck | Mockumentary | Musical | Mystery | Parody | Romance | Science Fiction
Supernatural | Thriller | Trailer

By year: 1981 | 1990 | 1993 | 1994 | 2001 | 2002 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2015

Other sections
PicReviews - sometimes, images are better than text.
Two-Paragraph Reviews - bite-size appreciation or bitching.
Soundtrack Spotlights - music that's not just music. It's magic.

Cannibal! The Musical (1993)

Tagging this as "Horror" because of the opening sequence. The rest is more than tame in terms of gore. Other titles are "Alferd Packer: The Musical" and "Alfred Packer: The Musical". Notice the very important difference. Sometimes the charac...

Movie: Everything is Illuminated (2005)
Soundtrack composed by: Sergei Shnurov

Yes, the audio quality on the video is pretty bad at times (the mp3 is fine), but I feel that I must showcase the awesomeness that is the music of this movie. I'm not even basic music theory-savvy, so I'll just stick to ranting for this (hopefully) new section of this World.

One thing I love is how the mood changes from one minute to the other. I believe it represents the movie perfectly: the underlying sense of tragedy and heartbreak, it's like still managing to smile after going through the roughest period in your life. You have to see the movie to fully understand everything, and I wholeheartedly encourage this. I hope I'll be able to re-watch and review this movie soon, listening to the soundtrack got me all hyped up :]

So, what do you say to this new section? Yay or nay?

Big Nothing (2006)

What can be better than a British comedy? One that combines British humor with American film techniques, that's what. And that's precisely what I had the pleasure to see two times this week (yes, both were this movie). ...

Edward Scissorhands (1990)

This movie and I go way back. Before I even went to kindergarden, actually. Before I even cared about watching TV, I was the best in my home at operating the VCR. I had tons of videotapes recorded by my dad that I watched daily: movies, cartoons, ...
