Speed Movie Review

by Gunther Heinrich, 20 Jun 2010 in Reviews

The story of this movie is as fast told as the title of this post written: you take one bomber with a wish for a slightly bigger banking account, one cop who wants to prevent that from happening and a bus which takes the can for this romantic drama. Mix, stir and you got yourself the action hit of the summer of 1994.

After I watched Speed ages ago I am more than surprised how fast this movie is, even when you judge it by today’s standards. I really don’t want to know how big of a revelation that movie had to be for movie goers of the last millennium when the bus hit the silver screen for the first and the last time.

Splice Movie Review – Stupidity Owns!

by Gunther Heinrich, 1 Jun 2010 in Reviews

Before I start the review itself: I fucking love both the teaser and standard movie poster! Both are some of the best designed sheets in recent memory and I couldn’t even think of something fitting better than those two.

Okay, on to the movie…

Do you know the moment when you watch a movie and think “Okay, that was stupid”? Splice is a movie in which those moments occur every five or so minutes.

Universal Soldier makes my Review go WTF

by Gunther Heinrich, 20 May 2010 in Reviews

Finding movies to blog about can be hard sometimes. Over the last few weeks I have compiled a list of possible candidates to blog about which basically are movies I have already seen long time ago but are on a good enough level so I will “waste” my lifetime watching them again and write something about it.

Universal Soldier never made it on this list since I never considered it or even remembered that movie in the first place. After reading about this movie in a TV magazine I gave some thoughts about it. And I was close to not watch Universal Soldiers because this blog already has a strong SciFi focus (Rollerball, Akira and Avatar are good indicators for this trend).

Sigh… in the end it would have been better if I ignored Universal Soldier completely.

You know, the first and last time I watched Universal Soldier was shortly after its release on the good old video tape when DVDs only were legends. At that time (yeah I was young) I really thought that the movie was cool as hell. I had fun with it and was impressed with everything.

And now?

Time certainly wasn’t merciful. That much I already knew seconds after the movie started.
