“The Man Who Saved the World” (Peter Anthony, 2015)

A mix of dramatization and interviews about a russian who DIDN’T fire nukes; stylish, ambitious, but also makes you wonder what is true here really?

“Branded” (Jamie Bradshaw & Aleksandr Dulerayn, 2012)

Strange Russian movie about advertising and a revolt around this; pretty un-interesting, a disappointment.

“San Andreas” (Brad Peyton, 2915)

Destruction simulations galore, when half-decent actors play out a half-decent story about a family trying to unite during an enormous earthquake.

Winter games

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2
and
Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens

The NEW versus the OLD. Let the games begin!

“Pom Poko” (Isao Takahata, 1994).

As always with movies from Studio Ghibli a sensible story with an ecological subtext, and very beautiful and spectacular imagery; simply wonderful!

The Forbidden Room

…looks absolutely unique, crazy and wonderful.
