The disaster artist

The best worst movie.


Tell us that after seeing the umpteenth Flemish ‘comedy’, but in foreign films are sometimes gems hidden. You need to have them but would like to see. Tim Burton saw them in 1994 in the B-movies of Ed Wood, which he honoured with a beautiful black-and-white film with Johnny Depp as the struggling director (‘Ed Wood’). Just as telling James Franco how his roommate Tommy Wiseau the ball as hard missloeg with ‘The room’ that he might be the worst movie ever made. Reviewer Ruben Aerts saw in ‘The disaster artist’ a ‘wonderfully hilarious movie with a warm beating heart’. A defibrillator is nothing against.

The shape of water

The maid and the beast.


With thirteen nominations is ‘The shape of water’ the big favourite for the upcoming Oscars. And yet it is an excellent movie. ‘Full-on dare to go for the romance is a big risk,’ writes Steven De Foer, ” but if the mayonnaise takes, you can be a cinema again, old-fashioned along pack.’

The post

The press versus president.


Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks to save journalism: no wonder that they are there at ‘The Standard’ for fall, I hear you thinking. True, but if Spielberg does that, especially a good film, that can count as a prequel to ‘All the president’s men’.

The Florida project

Children on the edge of Disneyland.


You can be quite gloomy making films about poverty. The Films that you suppress, the films that you make angry, the films that you empathy to appeal to. And you can make a film such as ‘The Florida project’, where the energy and fun of spalling. It is just because you give to a young mother and her little daughter that you can get.

Three billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri

Mother with a mission.


With three billboards along the road requires a woman that the local police are finally making the rape and murder of her daughter. It demands righteousness: #TimesUp. But this film goes beyond hashtags and shows that behind vijandbeelden real people lie, with their own sensitivities and contradictions. The director of ‘In Bruges’ does that with as much nuance as exaggeration, humor, and with all the emotions from anger to regret. This is a masterclass in storytelling and a gripping film about people who have but people. Must-see.

Star wars: The last jedi

One of the best in the series.


The new ‘Star wars’ comes with a animal-friendly undertone, not a little helped by the cute bird-like critters that look like puffins: the Porgs. They put Chewbacca in a dilemma: you can be a Porg to the spit to run and eat while his cute soortgenootjes watch?

Lucky

Farewell of a topacteur.


Harry Dean Stanton: that is that complaining vakbondsafgevaardigde in ‘Alien’, the cultheld of ‘Repo man’ and of course, above all, the wandering man in ‘Paris, Texas’. The actor explained last year, is dead at 91-years-old, but not until after the canning of ‘Lucky’, in which the actor of many supporting characters the leading role, while no one less than David Lynch pops up in a supporting role. A fitting tribute to a man of great silences.

White sun

Nepalese heights.


How often you get the chance to see a Nepalese movie to see? Not often. The film festival Mooov begins on 17 april, but could not wait to get this exceptional film to the Belgian cinema’s. Reviewer Ruben Aerts saw a poetic film about freedom fighter who returns to his village to bury his father.
