Butterflies are Free (1972)

♥♥♥♥

Very good film! Certainly closer to 5 than 3. On point dialogue, it's clear it's based on a play.

Dazed and Confused (1993)

♥♥♥

tyrant senior youngsters, both men and women but especially the men. the latter deserve to die - or worse: get expelled.
and the teachers accept the tyranny: They should be forced to act as grown ups or be fired. couch and friends are apparently macho borderline bullies too
many sexists and homophobes among the men/boys generally, sadly.
at least tony (and maybe mike) are skeptical of those initiation rituals, but they don't step in and stop them. Others seem skeptical too even though they participate.
maybe expectations or some higher up bullies are sort of enforcing that social order

driving in the car knocking over mailboxes with trash cans: you see the (seemingly successful) conditioning happening to mitch, older youngsters showing what he should do and think is cool.
mitch imitating wooderson, that guy i thought was cool but who turned out to be borderline paedophile. mitch, don't get back at that violent worthless sexist homophobe asshat o'bannion, too risky

mitch: don't blame your sister for asking the guys to go easy on you. it was compassionate, regardless of the consequence. i guess his is also some ridiculous social norm bullshit reaction

creepy thing to refer back to that non-consent fantasy of the fresh(wo)man saying she'll do anything for you, mike.

pink is mostly the cool/nice guy, but then he has to ruin it at the end by two-timing his girlfriend though wtf. :/

Okja (2017)

♥♥♥

A strange mixture of being serious and comedy-like. For some reason I didn't evolve that much empathy for that fictional species, as I would have had it been fx. cows. But I hope my reaction here is an exception to the norm.

School of Rock (2003)

♥♥♥♥

The first Richard Linklater film I've seen and liked. The same may go for Jack Black, actually. Cool kids, good teacher, good parody and great music!

The Sugarland Express (1974)

♥♥♥

Ronja Røverdatter (1984)

♥♥♥♥

Where are all the women? Very patriarchal, primitive (sad) society. It seems like Lovis, Ronjas mother, is basically the mother of them all, being the rational one. On the other hand I like that Mattis, Ronjas father, is not afraid of showing his feelings. That goes against gender stereotypes.

Starman (1984)

♥♥♥

Blame! (2017)

♥♥♥♥

A bit sad that Killy is seemingly everything the movie cares about all of a sudden near the end, unlike much of the other movie. Singular male hero. That said I assume the universe it's built on is like that, this is the first I've seen of it.

Idioterne (1998)

♥♥♥

Louis C.K. 2017 (2017)

♥♥♥

Ex Machina (2014)

♥♥♥♥

Closer to 5 than 3. Quite nice movie! I kinda maybe wished that the choice at the end would be a different one, where she didn't betray him, because I think it would show a more optimistic view of AI, rather than "they should not never be trusted" and thus "the imprisonment was maybe kinda justified by human survival".

The Big Short (2015)

♥♥♥

Closer to 4 than 2. I liked it, and it made me wonder what picture they showed of those bankers and investors at the end. Many of those portrayed are selfish assholes - yet is that glorified or shown as something negative? Maybe somewhere in the gray area?

Playtime (1967)

♥♥♥

Quite suprised I didn't like this more considering its legendary status. I'd like to give it another chance at some point.
Arrogant picture-taking, chasing away her customers, not asking if you can take the picture and even pushing her to look at the camera. Seemingly she sees other people as NPCs. She plays piano really well though! Pretty hilarious that second photographer though.
That passage at the seemingly racist restaurant was just painful to watch ;) It got better later though, as people had a good time despite the massive chaos.
Annoying tourists ;)

Still, it does seem to be somewhat philosophical and feel like a documentary on some ways of living and spending time, obsession with consumerism etc.

X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)

♥♥♥♥

Quite good, might even be my favourite? Beats Days of Future Past at least, I think.

Dogfight (1991)

♥♥♥♥

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

♥♥♥♥

Traceroute (2016)

♥♥♥♥

Very nice! Made me think. Would like to re-watch sometime.

Carnage: Swallowing the Past (2016)

♥♥♥♥

Better than expected! Quite an interesting watch. 
Recommended to vegans and nonvegans alike.

Dear Mr. Watterson (2013)

♥♥♥

Calvin & Hobbes is my favourite comic, though the documentary was just decent, even kinda boring at times. Still it recallled fond memories when re-watching and re-reading a few of the comic strips shown during the documentary. They visit an archive where they store the originals, but the viewers are only allowed to look at the documentary host's reactions to seeing the originals, not see the originals themselves. That's not particularly interesting, and if the reason was that they didn't get permission I think that passage - and several others - could've been shortened or removed entirely.

Journey's End: The Saga of Star Trek - The Next Generation (1994)

♥♥♥♥

Star Wars: Rogue One (2016)

♥♥♥

Probably my least favourite Star Wars-film on my first watch, being the only watch as of this review.
Not as good music-wise, and storytelling-wise. The movie didn't manage to make me empathise much with any of the characters.

Chaos on the Bridge (2014)

♥♥♥

The clips from the show bring with them very fond memories(!), though the documentary itself is just decent in my opinion.

13th (2016)

♥♥♥♥

Very important subject, something needs to change!

Battlestar Galactica: Razor (2007)

♥♥♥♥

Pretty good, though closer to 3 than 5.

Becoming Warren Buffett (2017)

♥♥♥♥

Either 3 or 4. He actually seems like very sympathetic gentleman, not particularly interested in money in itself, but more the "game" of obtaining them. Which is evident in that decision of his to donate almost everything to charity. Furthermore I was happy to hear him speak of the issue of gender inequality. If only more rich people were like him!

Blood Diamond (2006)

♥♥♥

Kinda good, kinda weird. Seems to vaguely say things in favour of white supremacy, occassionally. :/ Archer is really an asshole, and Solomon seems to have way more respect for him than he deserves.

Important subject matter, however! Diamonds are not worth blood, and those people who buy them - or other products that cause suffering - are indirectly a partial cause thereof. Maybe even the primary cause.

Digging to China (1997)

♥♥♥♥

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)

♥♥♥

Closer to 2 than 4. Quite a disappointment from the Harry Potter films. Seemed like there was very little story, and mostly focus on special effects and slap-stick-ish comedy.

For the Love of Spock (2016)

♥♥♥

Love Spock, and a decent documentary about him, though it could be better. Don't know what kind of source material he had, though.

Hunger Games (2012)

♥♥♥♥

Pretty good!

It Happened One Night (1934)

♥♥♥

Lot of sexism, including threats of violence. A bit sad message. She starts out really cool but ends up falling for an asshole and letting him treat her badly. Not that it's her fault, but it's a sad character development, especially when it doesn't seem like it's conveyed that it IS sad.

Jingle All The Way (1996)

♥♥♥

Nightcrawler (2014)

♥♥♥

Closer to 4 than 2.

Pee-wee's Big Adventure (1985)

♥♥♥♥

Unfortunately there's some animal abuse in it, such as rodeo.

Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999)

♥♥♥

Fairly interesting.

Roman Holiday (1953)

♥♥♥♥

Very similar story to It Happened One Night - better, though not perfect. She's so much cooler/nicer than him, and you rarely see that age difference reversed in movies.

St. Vincent (2014)

♥♥♥

The Boys Next Door (1996)

♥♥♥♥

The Captains (2011)

♥♥♥

Moving stories and beautiful music and I like their philosophies. On the down-side I dislikes Shatners actions/questions at times, fx. talking to Mulgrew about how women are controlled more by their hormones and are different as leaders due to that, and seemingly thinking women should have more responsibility for kids. I also think he's rather creepy towards female fans, with sexual comments and even seemingly kissing without consent a few times. If not for that it would deserve a 4.

The Deep Web (2015)

♥♥♥

important subject and fairly interesting documentary on it

The Human Experiment (2013)

♥♥♥

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)

♥♥♥♥

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014)

♥♥♥♥

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015)

♥♥♥♥

The Polar Express (2004)

♥♥♥

The Propaganda Game (2015)

♥♥♥

The Social Network (2010)

♥♥♥

Sexist, selfish asshole as portrayed in the movie, Zuckerberg. Don't know how much is true. But he does seem to have some residual conscience in the background. Hot or not is a horrible concept, ethically.

Edit: From reading a bit about him later he may seem to've been portrayed a bit more like an asshole than he was in reality, but only a bit.

Trevor Noah: Afraid of the Dark (2017)

♥♥♥♥

One of the fairly rare comedy/stand up shows I actually like. Also because of the political elements, and not making the usual, silly gender stereo type or racist jokes etc.
Impressive accents!

Wayne's World (1992)

♥♥♥♥

Wayne's World 2 (1993)

♥♥♥
