A year ago it looked very different in the cinemas. Masks were compulsory and the capacity restrictions meant that only a fraction of the seats could be allocated. So it’s no wonder that in this uninviting environment, one film after another flopped brutally. But there were also a few exceptions – and one of them, alongside the MCU phenomenon, is “Spider-Man: No Way Home“ definitely also “Kaiserschmarrndrama”, the seventh case of the Niederkaltenkirchen village sheriff Franz Eberhofer (Sebastian Bezzel), which drew more than 1.1 million visitors to the cinemas.
The eighth case starts this week “Guglhupf Squadron”in which there are two (alleged) lottery prizes in Niederkaltenkirchen worth millions – and the gambling mafia cuts off a finger of the local kiosk owner Lotto-Otto (Johannes Berzl)…
The conclusion of the DashFUN review: After eight films, you can really slowly get carried away with the thesis: No matter how long the Eberhofer thrillers go on, and at least “Rehragout-Rendezvous” is already in the starting blocks for a theatrical release in August 2023, there will probably not be a bad film in this series!
David Leitch is not only one of the directors of “John Wick’, but also a former stuntman who, for years, put his bones in the works for Brad Pitt, among others. So it’s only fair that the “Ocean’s Eleven” star is now stepping in for his ex-stuntman – and himself in his new action fest “Bullet Train” once bludgeoned through a bullet train filled with psychopaths and hit men.
The conclusion of the DashFUN review: “Bullet Train’ is a hilariously fun high-speed action ride starring Brad Pitt in high spiritswho, apart from a few superfluous CGI inserts, can be accused of celebrating her own coolness too much.
The best movie of the week, on the other hand, is not a sequel and does not have a Brad Pitt on the poster. Nevertheless, we especially want the art house fans among you “Waiting for Bojangles” warmly recommend: In the bestseller film adaptation, the currently very popular and busy Virginie Efira plays a manic-depressive mother and wife, who follows director Regis Roinsard with his outstanding production to every height and depth, no matter how high. Intoxication and precipitation are so close together here as rarely.
The conclusion of the DashFUN review: A manic-depressive film about a manic-depressive protagonist. Full of formal and tonal excesses, director Régis Roinsard explores a broad emotional spectrum with extreme highs and lows. “Waiting for Bojangles” is funny, sad, stirring, moving and finally upsetting.
