November Movies Digest

Quite a slow month:


Acting: 4/5
Story: 2/5
Perception: 2/5

Rating: 2.5/5

Very good performance by Paul Bettany! Too bad that the plot is all over the place,  thus making it difficult for the viewer to really connect with the character. Another promising premise that gets wasted in the end!


Acting: 4.5/5
Story: 4/5
Perception: 4.5/5

Rating: 4.5/5

Complex Sci-Fi movie, that has a bit more to it than I had expected. Of course, the acting is flawless, JGL pulling a very convincing young Bruce Willis, and Bruce Willis being his own self. On top of that there's an impressive kid, so impressive that it crept me out. I enjoyed the retro-style image of a decaying future, and besides the camera work was impeccable. There are some small details like unexplained premises and improbable coherence in a couple of situations, but they can be easily overseen.

Arthur Christmas

Wits: 4/5
Story: 4/5
Perception: 4/5

Rating: 4/5

An interesting take on the evolution behind Santa's magic. A story that is both funny and holding a message. It might have a couple of predictable twists, but they're done in an enjoyable way. One of the best Christmas movie of recent times
