Sweden was a big part of this year´s Summer Film School. Daniel Bergmann, that Bergmann´s son, was among the guests. I´m quite ashamed to admit I haven´t attended a single event with him, or at least a single movie, for reasons I don´t remember anymore.

Occasionally something downright bugged me about those movies. The villains were both forgettable and with more or less questionable motivations and I … Continue reading Thoughts on Spiderman: Homecoming (2017)

Gerard Butler plays the undestructable bodyguard of Aaron Eckhart´s moderately hardcore occasional damsel in distress (more on that later), the president of USA.
