Star Trek Discovery: Soft Reboot jetzt auch im TV

Da hab ich mir also mal die ersten beiden Folgen der neuen Star-Trek-Serie angekuckt. Tl;dr: milde Enttäuschung – mit CGI angehübschter „Soft Reboot“, der bislang kaum Originelles bringt, aber dafür teils gedankenlos wieder in die gleichen Fallen tappt wie die ersten beiden Star Trek Soft Reboots im Kinofilm-Format.

The REAL Plot Holes of Game of Thrones – Beyond the Wall

The sixth episode of the seventh Game of Throne season is officially the worst ever. A glaring plot hole completely tore me out of the suspension of disbelief.

Gedanken zum #SnowdenMovie

Da hab ich mir also mal „Snowden“ von Oliver Stone angeguckt.


„Filme von Oliver Stone springen einem immer so ins Gesicht“, weiß ich noch, wie der Michael, einer meiner liebsten Freunde im Studium, mal zu mir sagte, Weiterlesen
