Movie review burst #2

Anastasia "Ra-Ra-Rasputin, Russia's sexiest love machine" Don Bluth, Gary Goldman (1997) It looks very nice, I like the songs, especially the main theme that comes back several times. I also enjoyed the dynamic between the main characters. The superb animation makes it worthwhile, even if the villain is a bit of an afterthought. Le Grand…

Movie review: Le Gendarme de Saint-Tropez

Le gendarme de Saint-Tropez Jean Girault (1962) The French cinema I was raised on mostly consists of popular comedies made between 1960 and 1990. I certainly have missed out on a lot of good movies, but fortunately for me a lot of these comedies are really good! In Louis de Funes' most famous role, we…

Ignorance is Bliss Sometimes I find my own behaviour very weird and inconsistent. I absolutely adore Studio Ghibli's work. I own almost all movies directed by Hayao Miyazaki.So I should have been aware of…

Star Trek: The Final Frontier (1989)

They finally went too far out there. This could have well been the last voyage of the Enterprise. The boat didn't go gently down the stream Okay, okay‚Ķ What happened? I don't know what to make of this movie.It's really different from the previous installments. William Shatner (whom I dearly love) is directing, and I…
