Disney's 58th animated feature is a dazzling follow-up to the very successful movie of 2013. Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven travel to an ancient enchanted forest in order to save their kingdom. A colorful adventure full of action sequences, delightful songs, a convincing character development and extremely amusing moments. The animation and the effects are breathtaking and it is guaranteed to have some nominations in the upcoming awards season. 'Into the Unknown' and 'Show Yourself' are my highlights!
It is quite something when fictional characters meet real-life characters. The Crawley family is excited to learn that King George V and Queen Mary are coming to visit and the house staff inevitably clashes with their own chefs and attendants who are reluctant to accept their assistance. It is very nice to see the entire cast returning after almost 4 years since their last appearance in the TV show and this film is the evidence that we could still continue to be entertained by this family of aristocrats and their servants throughout the years without getting tired.
Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement's mockumentary in which four vampire flatmates struggle with modern life's mundanity and show the camera guys the perks of their own lifestyle. The whole thing is a joke in itself but a very amusing one and it is the best genre spoof I have ever seen. There are many original ideas and they are all profoundly amusing, it is like nothing we have seen before.
The hilarious zombie slayers move to the now face off against evolved and more savage zombies and other survivors from a refuge and realise that staying together is more important than they thought. The gore is funnier than ever and this sequel is full of cultural reference jokes to make you roll on the floor. It is an entertaining continuation that mostly lovers of the original one will enjoy to the core. The new additional cast is amazing.
(Or LE MANS '66) This sports drama tackles the true story of American car designer Carroll Shelby and driver Ken Miles as they build a revolutionary race car for Ford to defeat the dominant Ferrari team at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966. But it is not the usual mindless racing movie, since it succeeds in exploring the humanity of all the characters supported by the main cast's impeccable performances while also delivering some thrilling racing sequences. It is ultimately a travel in time that accurately depicts the real-life events and which will delight both car enthusiasts and cinephiles. A lot of technical language but it was only expected. Good luck at the upcoming awards' season!
Timothée Chalamet stars as young Henry V, a king who encounters deceit, war and treachery soon after he inherits the throne. Despite the historical inaccuracies and a plot that borrows from real events, Shakespearean fiction and an unusual mixture of old and modern language, it is delightful to watch the amazing cinematography of a movie with such great performances and a final Battle of Agincourt that looked very realistic and was very entertaining. Nicholas Britell's score is a highlight!
This third installment of James Cameron's original storyline in which an older Sarah Connor and a hybrid cyborg human must protect a young Mexican girl from a newly modified liquid Terminator from the future. Despite the many similarities with the previous films, this one adds some modern upgrades to a great franchise, the visuals are astounding and the sense of nostalgia it evokes is an important element. The fact that it revolves around female power and diversity is very significant sand even makes a sort of clever political statement. Also, shout-out to Colombian Natalia Reyes and her badass performance in an action film.
The sequel to The Shining follows Danny, now an adult struggling with his traumas from the past. Together with Abra, a girl with similar powers, they must confront the members of a cult who feed off the shine of innocent children to remain immortal. It is a wonderful homage to the original movie at the same time that it expands on the mythology of this world. The whole story is very satisfying and seeing Danny become a hero for the first time was fantastic. Sound effects and the ominous score were an essential addition and Mike Flanagan's direction was the right choice to follow such impeccable and classic work.
Angelina Jolie once again steps into the shoes of one of the greatest villains? of all time. The famous fairy tale continues to expand Sleeping Beauty's world with completely original material and the creativity pays off. With the introduction of interesting characters, a wedding in the works and secret conspiracies, this sequel justifies its existence. It has an impressive cast, astounding and colorful visuals and it is uplifting as any Disney film. Shout-out to the technical departments, the costumes, the production design, the score and the visual effects are flawless.
A classic horror story in which an American diplomat and his wife adopt Damien and strange events lead them to believe that his adopted son may be the Antichrist. A marvelous and spooky score earned this movie and its composer Jerry Goldsmith an Academy Award and it isn't hard to see why. It creates an atmosphere of terror that complements the sometimes unlikely plot and some gruesome and even funny death scenes. Gregory Peck is very convincing and it is a pleasure to see his terrified character.
Once again, a father discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden in the woods near their new home with the power of resurrection. I think I find the original version a bit more convincing than this remake. Despite the significant alterations from the source material to make it work as a new movie, it falls flat because it seems rushed and it doesn't delve into the characters much, they are so superficial that the great ending just seems a bit off, although unexpected.
The eighth installment in what now seems to be a never-ending franchise deals with yet another Jigsaw gruesome game that seems to be the work of Kramer, despite having died 10 years ago. They seem determined to come up with "new" unoriginal ideas to continue this just for the sake of money. It has become unrealistic now and the recurrent plot twists are overused.
Happy Death Day! A black comedy slasher film in which a college student must relive the day of her murder over and over again in a loop until she discovers her killer's identity. The black humorous touch and the recycled ideas from other movies work really well with a genre that has been overused in the past. The suspenseful plot is convincing, the plot twist is great and it is entertaining, regardless of how repetitive it is..
Stephen King's 1989 adaptation of his novel in which a grieving father discovers an ancient burial ground behind his home with the power to raise the dead. I really want to read the book after this movie because the film lacks something, the acting is not very good despite the tense atmosphere set by it and some frightening images were just ineffective. But the story itself is shocking and memorable.
Tim Burton's now classic comedy-horror film has stood the test of time. The spirits of a deceased couple are harassed by an unbearable family that has moved into their home, and hire a malicious spirit to drive them out. Hilarious at every opportunity and with a great performance by Michael Keaton, Burton's bizarre imagery complements the plot and all his ideas for the world of the dead are worth a further look into. It was funny and entertaining from beginning to end.
A young orphan aids his magical uncle in locating a clock with the power to bring about the end of the world. It has a good concept, has a good first half but deviates into a silly third act. The dialogues are not very good and the characters could have had a better development. The ending was quite disappointing, I was really hoping for a bigger showdown but it did not live up to its potential.
A curious boy moves to Salem and awakes a trio of diabolical witches executed in the past. This is a hard one... there had to be a first time for this cheesy Disney 90's film, because of its popular culture status. You have to be in the mood for cheesy childish flicks to watch this. Otherwise this family-friendly film that has not aged very well with its nonsensical plot and terrible acting will be quite cringey. But some scenes were hilarious and I give it that.
Following the anthology concept of the first movie with 5 new found-footage segments, it is actually better than the first one and not as nausea-inducing. The ghastly stories recorded on videotapes are extremely creepy and terrifying. Ghosts, zombies, cultists, aliens... it was actually very entertaining, despite its narrative flaws and lack of connection.
A home invasion slasher film in which a deaf and mute writer living a solitary life in the woods must fight for her life when a masked killer appears at her window. Not many slasher movies accomplish that feeling of suspense and thrill in the viewer and because the main character can't speak or hear anything, it makes it entertaining, inventive for the genre and really frightening.
In Chapter Two, the evil clown Pennywise returns 27 years later to terrorize the town of Derry and the adult Losers must conquer their fears once again to destroy It once and for all. The visual effects help us believe that this monster is now more powerful than ever but sometimes it feels like it is too much. The cast is amazing but the lines they were given are sometimes terrible and obvious. However the movie fulfills its purpose of conclusion to the story and it is just satisfying and entertaining to watch. And Bill Skarsgård's talent makes It as creepy as ever.
