This defining movie guide and blog companion contains a plethora of equally passionate and subjective movie reviews published by the title-giving nerd on his blog rafenew.world between 2015 and 2020. The second chapter gathers even more (German) pieces written for his former website nidwirkli.ch between 2003 and 2006. Some of the older texts may not have aged too well. But they bear not only witness to the coming of age of the author’s writing style, taste and character – they document two decades worth of evolution in cinema, pop-culture and society itself. Each one of the more than 160 articles comes with its own QR Code, providing an interactive experience including free videos, graphics and even more digital content available on rafenew.world. Being first and foremost a vanity project, this title delivers hours and hours of reading material, opinions, trivia, callbacks and, most important, fun for everyone lucky enough to have been a child in the eighties.
