Spider-Man: Homecoming
32 days ago via Flixster

I can't remember the first time I came across spider-man but he has always been a staple in my life, whether it be from the comics, tv shows or games & movies, I have always enjoyed his antics and his different interpretations.., & I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. I wasn't expecting much as I tried to avoid the trailers that feel like were giving away way too much, it just looked too vanilla for me, too trying-to-sell-toys , just wasn't leaving me hopeful at all.
I guess now I can rest easy & hopefully watch this movie again because I really enjoyed it. Sure it wasn't perfect & I wasn't that pleased with Spidey getting too techy but I sure welcomed the change of colour, the change of scenary & definitely the change of actors. (mind you I loved Andrew garfield as spidey too).

The Hateful Eight

Look, there's no use saying that Tarantino is a stylistic master... because we all know he is. There is no use talking about his scripts, cause we all know he kicks all kinds of ass. So why? ( I hear you ask) Did I give The h8ful Eight only 3 stars?
Narrative. I was so invested in this, through out and then, it lost all mystery and went into extended dialogue (which is why I love Tarantino) but it got to a point that it went gratuitous and without motive. So the ending felt like a stretch and it didn't feel like it paid off. So sue me.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

At long last 2 of the greatest superheroes go head to head. And here we have it, in true, you want it - you got it fashion. This movie was made for the comic book geeks, and there are some brilliant moments in this movie, actually so many brilliant moments... That dig into the fabric of the identities & weaknesses of our heroes... but .. & there is a but, it loses in straight one on one story structure & motivations. It doesn't satisfy for the simple reason that it is setting up something else.... & that's a shame, because there is genius inside.

This movie is straight up raw. I don't think I have ever watched a movie in the wide open frontier land and felt so claustrophobic. Inarritu is a mad genius for somehow getting actors to jump in ice water and fend off the elements in such a way that had me feeling cold in the middle of summer. The last scene in this movie literally at the edge of my seat. One to watch in the cinema for sure.

No
No (2013)

I have to be honest with you, I love foreign movies but I haven't watched one in ages... How did this one fly past my radar? I will never know, especially since I was born in Chile & knew everything about this campaign when it happened. I was raised on news reports showing the riots of Chile, the stories of people tortured & the missing, (1000's of people were abducted & never heard from again during the time of the coup.)
Why should you watch this movie?
Well Chile has a very interesting history, it is the only country in the world to elect a Socialist government & the only one in the world to oust a dictator without bloodshed. This movie intertwines movie with actual footage of the 'No' campaign & news reports of the time. It does it seamlessly too, making it feel like a documentary, shedding light on how an Advertising Exec campaigned against a Dictators regime in true 80's fashion.
On a side note; one of the things that started this whole thing was the fact that Pinochet wanted to be called President Pinochet, not General Pinochet., & he had to face the fact that he wasn't elected in. Thinking he could win an election, succumbing to international pressure, he decided to put it to a vote. Silly Billy.
