Spider-man: Homecoming – 2017

The reinvention of the Spider-man franchise was not a desperate need in cinema, but for the third time in a decade, the wall-crawler was reborn.

Córki Dancingu – 2015

Definitely one of the weirdest movies I’ve seen recently. This film takes its inspiration from Hans Christian Anderson’s Little Mermaid, but sets it in a nightclub in 1980s Poland.

Punch-Drunk Love – 2002

Paul Thomas Anderson is a gifted director and has made some great films in his career so far, from Boogie Nights to Inherent Vice he is a master of the human condition. Punch-Drunk Love is a love story, and probably one of the best. There is a lot about this film that earns my appreciation, […]
