The Hangover by Tod Phillips

In the Catching Up section. I did not expect much having heard mixed opinions. I actually loved it.

It is silly but it is just silly enough not to offend the audience’s intelligence.

It is funny, has a great pace and in general is quite likeable. Go watch it, good entertainment!

Casablanca by Michael Curtiz

This is not the catching up section. This is enjoyment and pure pleasure of having watched the new remastered, incredibly sharp version of one of the best films ever made.

It is a goldmine of film quotes, a political story, a war story and a romance. An eternal classic with no happy ending. It historically flows from the golden age of Hollywood and its traditional film noir era onto more modern times.  A fantastic combination of humour, cynicism, honour and history.

An absolute must. For the most adorable and sparkling couple of Hollywood – Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, a masterpiece script with golden dialogues with the perfect mix of tears and laughter.
