Mit Mr. Holmes bringt Regisseur Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, Twilight – Breaking Dawn 1 + 2) ein ruhiges und intimes Portrait des fiktiven Meisterdetektivs in die Kinos. Getragen von Ian McKellens Performance ist Mr. Holmes eine erfrischende alternative zur beliebten BBC-Serie mit Benedict Cumberbatch.

Zum wahrscheinlich letzten Mal begeben wir uns ins Kino, um nach Mittelerde gebracht zu werden, die riesige Welt, die die Kinozuschauer seit 2001 fesselt. Doch Bilbos Weg neigt sich dem Ende zu und wir wollen mal schauen, ob das ein Abschied in Würden ist.

This week the big release is X-Men: Days of Future Past and as indicated in our german review the movie is absolutely worth seeing on the big screen.
But what if you have never seen an X-Men movie?

  • 3 original movies (X-Men, X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand),
  • one prequel (X-Men: First Class)
  • and 2 spin offs (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Wolverine)

this movie universe is starting to become as complicated as the comics it is based on. It might even be on the verge of alienating the uninitiated or those who have given up on comic book movie.

So in this article we have compiled different approaches in order to be able to enjoy this newest X-Men installment. Because, let’s face it, X-Men: Days of Future Past is not a movie for rookies.

Banner Hobbit

Is „very good“ good enough for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey?

This was the question of a review over at hitfix and it is an incredibly accurate description of the dilemma that Peter Jackson’s return to Middle-Earth has to face.

Set 60 years before the Lord of the Rings trilogy this first installment of the Hobbit-Trilogy tells the story of how Bilbo Baggins (a wonderful Martin Freeman) went from being a respected to an adventurous Hobbit who would join Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) and his 12 fellow dwarves. Together with the ever mysterious and grumpy wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) their mission is to get to the lonely mountain Erebor to kill the Dragon Smaug and reclaim the mountain which used to be the home of Thorin’s race.
