The Oscar Show has finished and I again did not watch it. So it’s business as usual.

Well, almost.

My Review of Avatar

by Gunther Heinrich, 22 Jan 2010 in Reviews

I finally gave up. After all of my friends nagged me to watch James Cameron’s Avatar I finally let my rejection flow away and go to my cinema of choice.

Since everyone is praising Avatar as the new holy grail of movies I will take my time here and rip this thing to shreds talk about my humble impressions and why some elements just don’t live up to the hype. (Be aware of spoilers (see flag on the left of the title) and length of post)

Those Hypes! Those Hypes!!!! Arrrrgghhhh!

by Gunther Heinrich, 24 Dec 2009 in The Movie & Me

Originally I didn’t plan on writing anything before or during Christmas. But…I have a confession to make: I can’t stand hypes and anything behind it. In the best case I get suspicious of the hypey-thingy, in the worst case I’d love to kick it off this ball.

I think I have this habit because to me a hype is nothing else than burning love in disguise. You don’t see the weaknesses, you do anything a normal person wouldn’t and you plaster the world around you with the usual lovey-thingy crap nobody wants to hear about.
