4,5/5. A stunning, physically straining masterpiece by veteran Martin Scorsese. Brilliantly arranged soundtrack, a strong and thought-provoking story and fantastic work by all the actors, especially from Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo. One of the best films of 2010 so far and I'm fairly confident it'll be one of my favorites when the year ends aswell.

4/5. A dark, brooding covers album. Gabriel's interpretation of the songs is brilliant, as is the song selection itself. The album really opens itself up over multiple listens and although it isn't right for most moods, when the mood IS right, it's one of the best things out there.

4/5. An extremely enjoyable movie with strong acting, a witty story and a strong morale. Jason Reitman continues his very strong directing career.

4,5/5. A brilliant movie. All the details are in place and I left the theater in awe. Superb.

3/5. An average political thriller with a timely story. Strong acting from Leonardo DiCaprio and Russel Crowe, but the movie falls a bit short. Lacked suspense (for me).

via Everybody's Fine (2009)

3/5. A meditative story of a family and its woes. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and De Niro's role, but something's just missing. As it's a remake, I've now added the original Stanno tutti bene (1990) by the legendary Italian director Giuseppe Tornatore (Nuovo cinema Paradiso).

3/5. A solid album.. if it was made by anyone but Massive Attack. Coming from them, it's a bit bland, boring and lacking the sharpness and energy of Mezzanine, but even 100th Window. The tracks "Paradise Circus" and "Rush Minute" prove that Massive Attack can still make a brilliant tune, but for some reason the album falls short for me.

3,5/5. Another strong album by Tindersticks with a few brilliant moments. I still love their older material more, especially Curtains or even The Hungry Saw, their last album.

2,5/5. Another average romantic comedy. A few funny moments, but generally nothing special. Not a total waste of time, luckily.

3/5. It was okay-ish, but I really don't value Ritchies vision of Doyle's classic too highly.

via The Invention of Lying (2009)

3/5. A comedy written and directed by Ricky Gervais, who also stars opposite to Jennifer Garner. Some inventive ideas, great satire on religion and Hollywood, but overall it was just a mediocre comedy/romance.

3,5/5. A good, fun oldie. Should a movie from the 90s even be called an oldie? What do I call movies from the 50s!?

4/5. Visually fantastic and great entertainment.. if you can forget that it doesn't really have anything to say.
