A cult favourite and one of the funniest and culturally significant movies in popular culture. Ethan and Joel Coen's hilarious film follows Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski, a lazy middle-aged man who is mistaken for a millionaire of the same name by two goons who urinate his rug. He then seeks restitution and instead gets entwined in an intricate kidnapping case. Its eccentric characters portrayed by a brilliant cast, its comedic dream sequences and its idiosyncratic dialogues make this entertaining movie a hell of a ride and a masterpiece that is extremely quotable.
Not the best work from Studio Ghibli, but it was an interesting concept that could be explored further. Based on the Earthsea fantasy series written by Ursula K. Le Guin, it is set in the land of Earthsea, in which a powerful wizard and a runaway prince must join forces with a former priestess and her daughter to defeat an evil foe whose quest for immortality will destroy Earthsea. But the plot is presented in a boring and overcomplicated way that fails to be as appealing as it probably should be. The viewer couldn't be blamed for losing interest after a while.
The most recent and very relevant Spike Lee joint in which four African American veterans return to Vietnam seeking the remains of their fallen squad leader and the gold fortune they hid. As probably the first movie telling the African American experience in the Vietnam War, it is a groundbreaking and impactful film with a powerful message acknowledging the Black Lives Matter movement and bringing attention to the fact that the black soldier's role in that was is often diminished and underappreciated. Watching this film after the death of Chadwich Boseman is heartbreaking, based on the fact that his character is not alive from the start. It acts as a tribute to him and to old those lives lost in that terrible confrontation.
A brother and sister enter a field of tall grass to rescue a boy, but they soon realize they cannot escape and something evil lurks in the grass. The concept of the film is great, given that it came out of the book written by Stephen King. But it is utterly confusing and not at all terrifying after 20 minutes. The fact that everything keeps going back and forth without any apparent chronological order or logical reason gave me the feeling that I was wasting my time from the get-go. So disappointing.
The lives of six strangers collide during a frenetic night of romance and dream chasing when a young DJ portrayed by a terrible actor is given a chance to perform at a festival. Too predictable and a lot of clichés that make it hard to believe they made it into the final product. Not even the very anticipated final song was good enough. It's a shame. I expected more of this type of movie.
It's just one of the greatest epic war movies ever made and The Final Cut was my choice to watch it for the first time. Directed by the legendary @Francis Ford Coppola and set in the destructive and bloody Vietnam War, it follows a captain who is sent to Cambodia on a dangerous mission to assassinate a renegade colonel accused of murder and presumed insane, who is seen as a demigod by a local tribe. Winner of 2 out of 8 Academy Awards in 1980, including Cinematography and Sound, very well deserved without a doubt. The whole movie is just an artistic eerie masterpiece through and through. With its haunting images, it will surely leave a lasting impression on the viewer, mostly about the hellish nature of war. Its structure and plot really are very complete, only complemented by astonishing performances by great actors.
Adapted from a Japanese children's fantasy novel, this heartwarming Studio Ghibli film follows a young witch on her mandatory year of independent life, who finds fitting into a new community difficult while she supports herself by running a flying courier service with her broomstick. Another one of Hayao Miyazaki's great independent girl characters who shows a very tender inner journey. It is a very positive and uplifting tale with a message of friendship, humility and self-confidence conveyed through a sweet and memorable plot.
Wow! Such an emotional and devastating animated war tragedy... Those words usually don't usually go together, but this movie pulls it off and can move anyone to tears. A young boy and his little sister who rely completely on each other after losing their mother desperately struggle to survive in Japan during the final months of World War II. This heartbreaking story makes you think about the harsh conditions people experienced when living in a country at war and makes you reflect on the human cost that it implies. Incredibly realistic and a must-see for anime lovers. Its anti-war nature serves as a reminder of the pointless horrors and consequences of war and how innocent people suffer the most throughout it, and the movie doesn't even include nuclear bomb-related content.
Netflix's superhero film follows a drug dealer, a police officer, and a former soldier who team up to stop the distribution in the streets of New Orleans of a pill that gives the user a particular superpower for just five minutes. With an excellent cast and great action sequences, the movie has potential, even the visual effects were good for a low-budget movie. Sadly it is extremely predictable and its plot follows a narrative that could have been developed in a better way. A viewer expects more of a good idea such as this one. It needs expanding.
Based on Jack London's timeless novel, this French animated film follows a loyal wolfdog whose curiosity leads him on the adventure of a lifetime while serving a series of three distinctly different masters. It is not exactly the accurate adaptation I am still waiting for, but it certainly keeps the same concept and a similar storyline. And it is a good film overall. Interesting artistic style of animation, unusual but effective.
Another of Hayao Miyazaki's greatest animated films. This one is based on his own manga series, in which warrior and pacifist Princess Nausicaä desperately struggles to prevent two warring nations in a post-apocalyptic time from destroying themselves and their dying planet. It is visually striking with its steampunk designs. Its plot is very convincing and well developed with the metaphorical idea of an ecological message that is pretty powerful and relevant. Nature should always be protected. The soundtrack is also pretty memorable.
Another of Monty Python's excellent comedy movies, in this one a young man, Brian, is born on the same day and in the stable next door to Jesus Christ, who spends his life being mistaken for a messiah and having several misadventures while trying to get rid of his followers. Every scene is as comical as it can get and it really is laughter-inducing with all its irreverence and absurdity. It is a must-see and I am sorry it led to controversial blasphemy accusations in the past. Some people do not know how to react to this kind of humor. This is a British masterpiece and a really memorable adventure.
The character that was so iconic that it became Studio Ghibli's mascot. It is one of the earliest masterpieces of the Hayao Miyazaki Collection, a heartwarming animated fantasy film in which two girls move to the countryside and have adventures with wondrous forest spirits like Totoro, a giant rabbit-like creature. The incredible animation style and the imaginative and whimsical world of this particular filmmaker is always remarkable and despite the lack of a defined plot, the cuteness and the magic hold the story together.
The 1975 excellent classic British comedy film of the Monty Python comedy troupe that stands the test of time. King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table embark on a surreal, low-budget search for the Holy Grail, encountering many, very silly obstacles. It is hilarious from beginning to end (seriously even the credits are funny) with a very clever sense of humour and its absurd storylines and twists are incredibly amusing. One of the best British films ever indeed... I couldn't stop laughing!
Una gran película argentina de temática LGBTQ+ pero que deja de lado los estereotipos de una película gay, haciendo que la historia sea muy sutil y completamente normal. Cuando un adolescente hace amistad con el hijo de unos amigos de su familia, un gran secreto fortalece su lazo. Refleja los increíbles sentimientos que tenemos al crecer con respecto a las personas que nos atraen durante ese tiempo. Deben haber más películas de este tipo, sobre todo películas latinoamericanas.
Such a waste of time... Artemis Fowl, a young criminal prodigy, hunts down a secret society of fairies to find his missing father. I don't doubt the story and the characters may be amazing in the novels, but the film itself didn't work for me. It's like it's trapped within the first act. Not friendly with newcomers and from what I've heard, not a very accurate adaptation. If you are remotely interested in this character's adventures, perhaps it should better to read the books.
Based on a novel, it is an uplifting and heartwarming movie about a boy with facial differences who enters the fifth grade, attending school for the first time and who will have to stand up to bullies and children who might not understand him. It is a beautiful lesson about acceptance of others that reminds that it doesn't matter how you look on the outside, and it's what is one inside that counts. But also, it highlights the importance of friendship and accepting yourself as you are. Absolutely remarkable make-up and exceptional acting by the main leads.
One of the first magnificent and groundbreaking finest movies of Christopher Nolan in which a man suffers from anterograde amnesia and uses notes and tattoos to hunt for the man he thinks killed his wife, which is the last thing he remembers. But the way the story is told is quite unique. A series in black-and-white shown chronologically, and a series of color sequences shown in reverse order: this forces the viewer to experience the mental state of the protagonist and rethink every one of the sequences to explore what truly happened in the movie. It's one of those movies you have to watch twice to understand it in its entirety, something Nolan's movies always cause. It evidences how much of a genius this filmmaker is and you've got to be always predisposed to watch some of the most clever movies of all time, when it comes to his stories.
The 76th Academy Awards Best Original Screenplay winning film, written, produced and directed by Sofia Coppola. A romantic comedy drama in which a faded movie star and a neglected young woman form an unlikely bond after crossing paths in Tokyo. Both Bill Murray and Scarlett Johannson are flawless in their performances, the former owning the role with a remarkable ease and for which he earned a nomination. Despite the depiction of Japanese culture and people being a bit alienized with a few hints of stereotyping, it is also respected at the same time and shown to the world. However it is a subtle, charming and melancholic love story that will get to your heart.
