"All in all, Olivia Wilde places her name on the list of directors to watch closely for the next few years. Booksmart is a wonderful addition to the coming-of-age genre, one that possesses two astonishing protagonists. Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever might become superstars in the future if they continue to display such remarkable performances. With the help of a great supporting cast as well, Wilde shows the exciting and entertaining side of graduating high-school, but also all of the real dramas that teenagers go through, with no restraints. It's a character-driven story, and Amy and Molly are two persons that we should learn a lot from. It's one of the best movies of the genre, even though it still contains some of its famous cliches and a few subplots that don't quite come together. Definitely, give it a watch!"
"Whether you love it or hate it, Midsommar is memorable. If you didn't enjoy Hereditary due to the lack of jump scares, the former isn't for you then. Midsommar requires full attention, patience, and an open-minded mentality. It's not a generic horror flick, so don't go in expecting to be constantly entertained by silly scares. Expectations are everything, so moderate them in the best way possible. It has one of the most abstract ways of addressing a difficult relationship and how to deal with grief, but if you LOOK AT THE WALLS, you'll be able to (maybe) follow the story a bit better.
Technically, Ari Aster delivers a masterful work, with exceptional production design and gorgeous cinematography, plus seamless editing. Florence Pugh carries the story on her shoulders with an astonishingly compelling performance, but her supporting cast didn't do much with their under-developed characters. The film drags a lot, and it can become tedious at some point, but in the end, it's one of those movies that sticks with you. A second viewing may be necessary, and it will probably be a better experience. Can't wait to find out. Go see it!"
"All in all, 47 Meters Down: Uncaged is nothing more than a silly attempt at the start of a new franchise. Don't be fooled by its title since it has nothing to do with the original flick. It doesn't try to introduce compelling characters, the shark sequences fall flat for the most part, and the screenplay is filled with laughable plot points. There's no sense of logic. For an 89-minute runtime, it astounds me how it can't be slightly entertaining, to say the least. Undoubtedly, one of the worst films of the year. Skip it, so they don't have enough money to try and do a third one. Who knows?! Maybe they'll bet on original, smaller flicks from genuinely talented filmmakers who want to work hard and deliver a good movie."
"All in all, Ad Astra is yet another display case for Brad Pitt's chances at winning an Oscar. With a subtle yet powerful performance, Pitt carries the whole story to safe harbor with tremendous help from the eyegasmic visuals. Technically, it's one of 2019's closest movies to being perfect. Very well-shot, well-edited, with an immersive score, and gorgeous cinematography. However, it's a slow-burn that doesn't always work as such. Narration is the go-to method to develop Pitt's character, and while it works most of the time, it slows down the main plot, becoming a tad boring during a few moments. The ending isn't the impactful payoff that the film needed, and the incredible supporting cast is under-utilized. In the end, it's still a great movie and one that should be seen at the biggest and best screen possible, so go see it for yourself!"
