  1. Kurnaz - zanimivo, da vedno izbrskaš kakšnega nemškega, ki ga sploh nisem registriral. Hvala.
    Zelo dober mesec, veliko odličnih in kar nekaj solidnih je bilo v januarju.

    Če bi sodeloval na kakšnem kvizu in bi se nagradno vprašanje glasilo, kakšno oceno bo Cosmo podelil Borgmanu, bi takoj zinil 6,5. :)
    Tolk te že poznam - vedel sem, da ti ne bo dogajal. Podobno kot Sveti motorji...

    A True Detective je bilo dovolj že teh nekaj epizod za končno oceno?

    BTW:

    Še sam bom začel s podobnimi mesečnimi pregledi - filmi ki sem jih videl, a o njih nisem pisal.
    Zgolj osnovni podatki, sinopsis v angleščini, ocena in to je to.
    Tako bom vsaj imel evidenco pregledanih filmov.
    Upam, da me ne boš tožil za krajo ideje ;)

  2. Ta mesec je bil čisto nor, ja. Že danes imam na imdb listi „februar“ 78 naslovov, in vse kar ne gre, se prenese v naslednji mesec. Zato bi bilo super, če tudi ti beležiš vse, ker čez čas brišem nekaj naslovov, ki že mesece ( npr. C.O.G., CBGB, Pour une femme, Les saveurs du Palais, Hotel Noir, Il futuro, Pee Mak Phrakanong, Bellas mariposas, Roa, Kibô no kuni, La leggenda di Kaspar Hauser …) ne pridejo na vrsto in mogoče jih ravno zaradi tvoje ocene ne bom.

    @Borgman
    Saj, to je tisto kar govorim … če hočeš „brati“ kritika, ga moraš prvo „prebrati“ - šele potem ti ocena nekoga nekaj pove. Btw. Tudi jaz se poznam – si videl: Wolf of Wall Street: 7,5! He-he

    True Detective je dober le, ko se zgodba odvija „privat“, vso ostalo iskanje in raziskovanje o morilcu pa je ena velika bedarija. Nisem ti jaz za serije …

    Je pa v odličnem (nagrada presenečenja gre v Gruzijo in Filipine) mesecu bilo tudi nekaj razočaranj. Še najbolj Gondryjev L'écume des jours, Pioneer (od Nokas režiserja), Dvojina, prehvaljeni Louis Cyr … Da o American Hustle niti ne začnem.
