What are people saying?

  • Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Nova Zembla

    Inspired by a true event about a doomed navy exploration. It looks good and has a nice musical score by DJ Armin van Bureen and impressive visuals. A Dutch Victoria Secret lingerie model show off cleavage and nice firm body but doesn't add anything useful to the film. Too much liberties is done to the story making villains out of crew members and even a priest back home is portrayed as a bastard for drama's sake.
