  1. Jason Bourne / Paul Greengrass / 2016 / *
    The CIA’s most dangerous former operative is drawn out of hiding to uncover more explosive truths about his past.
    Maar nee. Way past expiry date. Tommy Lee Jones speelt zo voorspelbaar; Matt Damon speelt zichzelf, en zelfs Alicia Vikander past in het cliché. Stop met deze franchise.
  2. Mechanic: Resurrection / Dennis Gansel / 2016 / *
    Arthur Bishop thought he had put his murderous past behind him when his most formidable foe kidnaps the love of his life. Now he is forced to travel the globe to complete three impossible assassinations, and do what he does best, make them look like accidents.
    Had het iemand over cliché, daarnet?
  3. Kubo and the Two Strings / Travis Knight / 2016 / ***
    A young boy named Kubo must locate a magical suit of armor worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past.
    Alleen het einde is echt rommelig, maar voor de rest? Uitstekend! gaat dat zien.
  4. The Wind Rises / Hayao Miyazaki / 2013 / ***
    A look at the life of Jiro Horikoshi, the man who designed Japanese fighter planes during World War II.
    Een nogal zwaar gefictionaliseerde vertelling over het leven van Jiro Horikoshi, maar uitstekend in beeld gebracht. Een pareltje.
  5. Autumn Lights / Angad Aulakh / 2016 / *(*)
    An American photographer adrift in a remote Icelandic community becomes entangled in the lives of a mysterious European couple.
    Zo weird en gekunsteld en bevreemdend en slecht geacteerd dat het soms bijna goed wordt. ik weet echt niet wat ervan te denken. Het mist net die oempf om er een fantastische film van te maken. Jammerlijk gemiste kans.
  6. The Barkley Marathons: The Race That Eats Its Young / Annika Iltis & Timothy James Kane / 2014 / ***(*)
    In its first 25 years only 10 people have finished The Barkley Marathons. Based on a historic prison escape, this cult like race tempts people from around the world to test their limits of physical and mental endurance in this documentary that contemplates the value of pain.
    Fantastische documentaire over één van de meest pijnlijke en moeilijke ultramarathons –veel meer dan een loopwedstrijd.
  7. What We Become / Bo Mikkelsen / 2015 / *(*)
    A family of four is quarantined in their home as a virulent strand of the flu spreads into town and they are forced to the extreme to escape alive.
  8. 7 años / Roger Gual / 2016 / *(*)
    Four friends face an agonizing decision. One must go to prison. The other three must make the sacrifice worthwhile.
  9. Even Lambs Have Teeth / Terry Miles / 2015 / *(*)
    Two young women terrorized by a group of small town psychos seek revenge on their tormentors.

0 te vermijden / * slecht, maar bekijkbaar / ** goed / *** zeer goed / **** fantastisch (meer uitleg bij de quotering)
