Män som hatar kvinnor (2009) One of the best serial killer movies I ever saw. Apart from the fundamental incredibility of the girl managing to have to do with sexual maniacs throughout her life, it has the great advantage of having swedish actors and landscapes and not the usual american ones. The multiple endings are effective. 8\10

Under Siege 2 (2005 ) I was wrong when I said that number 1 was the last good Seagal: this is just as good thoough it takes it 3\4 of an hour to get going. 7\10

Play it Again Sam (1972) The only Woody Allen movie I like, though I stopped watching them after Annie Hall. This is funny, which is all a Allen movie is meant to be. 8\10

Tango and Cash (1989) lightweigh effort by the all involved, actors and director. Russell is playing a part meant for Mel Gibson and is quite goofy. Stallone is not brilliant as the part requires himtoo to be (but that is no news). 6\10

Drôle de drame ou L'étrange aventure du Docteur Molyneux (1937)

Sadoul says that the screenplay by Prevert is much better than the movie, as Carné was still fresh at directing. What this comedy lacks is rhythm and maybe some of the actors aren't so good at comedy (Jouvet for one). This should have been re-made at Ealing in the following decade with Guinness, Morley and the other ones and it would have been a masterpiece. Still it's worth a 7\10 for his strangeness. The french dvd below has english subs.

Mon petit doigt m'a dit... (2005) This is based on a Agatha Christie novel but, thank God, the action is moved to France. I haven't read the novel yet (I will in  the next days) and can't make comparison. But for a good 4\5 the movie is highly enjoyable. The finale and the solution though are  too incredible, especially the fact that the female amateurish investigator does her best to get killed without succeding. Still she is one of the main interests of the flick. 7\10

Død snø (2009) The Nazizombies, yeah. Very entertaining with a good rhythm and original solutions to well-known  plot twists and situations. A pity the songs in the soundtrack had no subtitles. 8\10

Age of Consent (1968) Bah,  rather weak melodrama. Embarrassing. I save partly the Mirren's buttocks. 5\10

THe House Russia (1990) Rather plodding spy thriller, saved only from Connery's performance. Pfeiffer is ridiculous as a russian.  5\10

Otets Sergiy (1917-1918)  Considered the best movie of pre-revolutionary Russia, it is still a pleasant watching thanx to the Tolstoj source and the Mozzhukhin's performance. 8\10

Pikovaya dama (1916) A good rendition of Pushkin's source, though I can't say once youknow the plot you want to see it again. 7\10

Chiny i lyudi (1929) Delicious transposition of 3 Cechov's stories: makes you want to read the literary sources (i tried once but found them boring after a couple of pages). 8\10

Privideniye, kotoroye ne vozvrashchayetsya (1929) Piece of crap worth only for the design of the jail, reminiscent of german expressionism. 4\10
