Spider-Man 2 (2004)

♥♥♥

Not as good a love story as the first, but it's a more interesting villain though, compared to the green goblin when in costume.

hurts me to see him play around with mary jane's feelings again, being there for her and then not again. And again, she's damselled, with a fairly transparent shirt.

Spider-Man 3 (2007)

♥♥♥

Mary Jane 4 lyfe (nothing against gwen/bryce though). not being there for her and appreciating her enough, peter. :'(
and wtf was that on the stage?! and don't assume so vehemently you know how someone else feels. and pushing her away when you should be deeply apologizing and listening. don't deserve her with that kind of treatment. damselled again, so fucking tiring, unoriginal and sexist

beautiful music again!

Spider-Man rankings:
1 > 2 > 3. 
2 and 3 were close, though, so not quite sure. i clearly also have a Mary Jane bias

Spider-Man (2002)

♥♥♥♥♥

A 4 or a 5? Not sure, so optimistically went for 5. Even though Nickelback is part of the soundtrack! :'(

The score (Danny Elfman <3) and the love story are its greatest strengths to me! <3
The scenes with the goblin are kinda boring, though Willem Dafoe plays well! Sad to again again again see a woman damseled though. A tired trope.

Kirsten Dunst <3 They make a very cute couple!

With great power comes great responsibility <3 (also printed when sudoing!)

Homophobic jokes, Peter, not cool!

Norman sure knows a lot of scumbags, they keep him pushed into a corner. Still, he's willing to do dangerous experiments on humans so he's a scumbag himself.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

♥♥♥♥

Thor: The Dark World (2013)

♥♥♥

Closer to 2 than 4.

I feel the burial scene is supposed to feel very emotional and like a big moment, but it's for a character that was barely fleshed out and had little screen presence, so at least to me it didn't have that effect.

Iron Man 3 (2013)

♥♥♥

The Avengers (2012)

♥♥♥

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

♥♥♥

A fair bit of sexism which is sad to watch, but I suppose that was the times. Still, the writing could've reacted against it rather than just showing it, now it seems it might even be trying to depict it as (positive) nostalgia.

I agree with Johann Schmidt and disagree with Captain America in seeing a future without flags (ie. without nationalism).

Iron Man 2 (2010)

♥♥♥♥

Nice music!

The Incredible Hulk (2008)

♥♥♥

Closer to 2 than 4.

Edward Norton and especially Liv Tyler <3
But otherwise a decent/mediocre action movie. The hulk is hardly a favourite of either superheroes/villains to me.

Thor (2011)

♥♥♥♥

Closer to 3 than 5.

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

♥♥♥

Closer to 4 than 2.
Just now realised I too think Scarlett Johansson doesn't act that well, at least in this movie.

Flammen & Citronen (2008)

♥♥♥♥

The Interpreter (2005)

♥♥♥

Wonder Woman (2017)

♥♥♥

Closer to 4 than 2. Happy to see a super hero film with a woman front and center and women in prominent supporting roles as well! <3 Also like to see characters that are both very strong and at the same time human beings with feelings, and not either or.
I think it could be written better, however. Liked the start on the island but it declined after that, and got kinda over the top and unoriginal towards the end.
Beautiful end credits!

Moneyball (2011)

♥♥♥♥

Nice, touching film! I like a lot of sports films actually, even though I don't really follow sports and don't even know the rules of baseball in this case which is a bit confusing at times watching this.
I like the philosophy and the struggle especially the mental one.
In this movie I live the idea of new systems making old ones obsolete, which I think is true for ideas in general, and which I also hope happens in terms of making a better, more just world in the future.
Their system was an improvement - as specifically talked about - precisely because it looked at raw data without prejudice - looking past age, habits, peculiar ways of playing etc. Same could be the case with getting towards a more equal society where gender and race is not involved in deciding who gets the job, the ultimate result being that the people best suited for the jobs have them regardless and not excluded by discrimination.

By the way - totally off on a tangent here - despite it being exactly basing the decision off gender, I think quotas for women - and other groups - when hiring might be a good idea, for at least two reasons: There's more than one qualified person for many of these jobs, including qualified women and secondly because I think it will basically hasten the path to equality where such tools are no longer necessary. I think it would force us towards more equality, and once the equality was there the bias to favour men would disappear, also because the ones making the decision wouldn't be mostly men.

Sneakers (1992)

♥♥♥♥

Real Genius (1985)

♥♥♥

Lucy (2014)

♥♥♥

Logan (2017)

♥♥♥

Shaun of the Dead (2004)

♥♥♥

Doctor Strange (2016)

♥♥♥

Liked Benedict Cumberbatch more here than in Sherlock, still, doesn't seem like a particularly skilled actor judging from these two.

Genghis Blues (1999)

♥♥♥♥

3-4

Grave of the Fireflies (1988)

♥♥♥

Recall being somewhat disappointed. Would like to give it another chance though.

Irreversible (2002)

♥♥♥♥

Recall as very intense and disturbing!

On the Waterfront (1954)

♥♥♥♥

To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)

♥♥♥♥♥

Recall as really good, might be a 4 though.

Arrival (2016)

♥♥♥♥

Hello I Am David! (2015)

♥♥♥

Stand by Me (1986)

♥♥♥♥

Rating based on watching this a very long time ago.

The Snowman (1982)

♥♥♥♥

Whitney: Can I Be Me (2017)

♥♥♥

I feel the documentary wasn't that well made so I think it should've either been cut differently (with some new content), or be shortened. It was interesting to learn about her life!

Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (2017)

♥♥♥♥

Actually liked it quite a lot, way more so than Rogue One, and maybe slightly below or on par with VII?

My Star WArs rankings from top to bottom would probably be:
IV: A New Hope
V: The Empire Strikes Back
VI: Return of the Jedi
VII: The Force Awakens
VIII: The Last Jedi (might be equal to VII, need to rewatch to figure that out)
I: Phantom Menace = III: Revenge of the Sith
II: Attack of the Clones
Rogue One

Barefoot in the Park (1967)

♥♥♥

Iron Man (2008)

♥♥♥

Really rather sad portrayal of manhood, objectifying and practically owning women and other people as his subjects, and displaying the military as cool, and the weapons industry so positively. Also seems to play on anti-arab racist stereotypes and nationalism. And for food we harm other animals of course! And Hugh Hefner is also portrayed positively. Iron Man ignores a woman's no as well.

In some ways it seems these things are portrayed a bit negatively, as if he's an immature asshole in the beginning, supporting the weapons industry and at the end it seems he may begin to be able to have a proper relationship seeing the other part as his equal, and at least having a somewhat more skeptical view on the weapons industry (as having profit over ethics, not much criticism of US military in itself) - but I've heard that in later films he continues to be an asshole, so I'm not really sure.

That violent egotist main villain should not be allowed to live.

Little Women (1994)

♥♥♥♥

Close to 5! Really good movie!

Mixed Nuts (1994)

♥♥♥

9 to 5 (1980)

♥♥♥♥

Nice movie, both feminist and anarcho syndicalist-ish. Workers unite against parasitic bosses abusing their power.

Brødrene Løvehjerte (1977)

♥♥♥

I thought it was much better as a child, but still a decent re-watch. Quite tough subject matter, even possibly advocating gathering the courage to commit suicide as a solution. But maybe it's just symbolism for something else.

The Hateful Eight (2015)

♥♥♥

When I watched the trailer long ago I really didn't expect a very good movie, but I was positively surprised actually. Sad that sexist and racist language is apparently supposed to be edgy/cool though - it's quite widespread in this film.

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. 
coach 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 develop that much empathy for that fictional species, as I would have had it been fx. cows. But I hope my reaction in this regard is an exception to the norm, as we humans are so strongly in need of empathy, or if not that letting empathy (non-selfishness) direct our actions to a much greater extent.

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, going 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 most of the movie. Lone, 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)

♥♥♥
