X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)
Just watched the movie. Somewhat disappointed with the result. It seems that in recent years I no longer recognize my X-men ... Several elements do not keep the road; the accents of the characters, the order of the events, etc. It is disappointing from a nostalgic point of view. On the other hand, the story is good if we forget everything we know and all we liked from the first wave of movies. There are good moves in this one, not just negative. That's why I give such a high rating. I like movies of that kind so I'm a little sold out in advance! It was very well done on behalf of the whole team of wonderful actors. As usual the game of McAvoy is a bit overplayed, his facial expressions have always bothered me but he remains a very good actor, devoted and precise ... but a bit intense. I loved Sophie Turner. Since I discovered her in Game of Thrones, I don't want to miss anything she does. She is great in this role as well as in all those she has to play before.
There seems to be a new fashion: the lengths that no longer end ... or almost. This is the case in several action films this year (Superman vs. Batman for instance). In a time where everything is going too fast and the scenes are more and more computerized and where there is almost nothing real, these moments appear superfluous and unnecessary. Some movies are worthy of it and make the process magical and inevitable while for this one I thought that a few million dollars could have been spared by shrinking some scenes. And few minutes of my precious time!
But, that was a great entertaining movie and worth being seen.
Nostalgia to his maximum!
And six hours later I smiled again. Of course, I'm a mega fan of the series. I looked at it when I was a teenager, I saw it again last summer when I got the news of the sequel. And I must say that I am the perfect audience for this type of series. I love comedy, romance, family, drama and girly type of shows, and most importantly, I like series that last. I had no expectations except for a few characters I was hoping to see again. It worked for me, I laughed, I cried and I enjoyed every second. It was like putting in old slippers, everything was the same, just a little older! The only negative thing was that it was only 6 hours ... I loved meeting my Gilmore Girls again, Amy and her husband stayed true to the original series. It was, for me, a perfect continuity and I was delighted with each of the four episodes.
A Jaw Dropping Masterpiece!
This film completely captivated me. I left the movie theatre with my head in the clouds not realizing what had just happened to me. Everything seems plain after such a viewing experience. This movie is beautiful, despite it's dark aura and it's agonizing soundtrack. Who are deliciously perfect, by the way.
It is very rare that I award such a high score but ¨Arrival¨ merits it widely. Denis Villeneuve knows how to make good movies, he knows how to tell a story and this time he surpassed himself. All actors are perfect, starting with Amy Adams who deserves an Oscar for her touching, deep and moving performance. She has nothing to envy anyone, she is simply perfect. Going from each of her looks to each of her breaths when she has to face her fear of the unknown by entering the entrails of an extraterrestrial vessel, she is remarkably excellent. Led by master, Villeneuve succeeded in taking her on the road to perfection. And we believe it. So she is good and so her silences are loaded with emotions, her breaks are never annoying and her ¨flashback¨ are always relevant.
I did not expect to be transported into such an exciting drama. We are immersed in it from the first minutes and until the end we wonder how this relates to the story of these creatures that reach the four corners of the globe. But the two are intertwined and form an whole immensely coherent.
I loved the language lessons throughout the film. Because language is the node of the latter. It is all a question of communication, of being able to understand oneself and especially of understanding ¨them¨. Then there is time space that plays its role wonderfully. It surprises us, transports us and for my part completely bewitched me.
The tension is always present without ever falling into excess. We want to know more and each pieces of the puzzle fits it's own way, in time and the final close the loop ingeniously.
I'm already eager to re watch this flick and reenter the strong emotional charge and enjoy every minute of it again!
About Time (2013)
This movie is simply genius!!
This movie made me smile all along, laugh sometimes with this incredibly smart screenplay and cry with is beautiful ending and thoughtful lesson that we can all learn from. I just finish it and i'm still smiling. This movie is good for the soul, it's like a medicine, it heals. I loved every minutes of it. It starts with energy and humour and made me love every characters very fast, then it turns to be the most romantic movie ever made, make me wish I was this lucky girl from whom someone wait hours and hours in a museum just to meet her again, that's real love! And it makes me wish I had the ability of going back in time, just to relive some of the most beautiful days of my life. It's some kind of magical and wonderful.
I would refer this excellent movie to every soul I know and hope you would watch it too!
