The third installment of the Conjuring movie was a good horror movie to watch. In this film, we saw more of the relationship of the Warrens more beyond their famous career. I think in this movie there was an improvement in the makeup and hair of Vera Farmiga. She resembles much more the aspect that Lorraine Warren has in some interviews in the internet.
In the suspense scenes prior to some jump-scares, the mood and atmosphere were really well done even though obviously there was going to appear one.
Speaking of the jumpscares and the horror special effects I think they were very well done and "believable" especially right in the beginning where David was scratching the walls. But the demons or evil spirits that they always use are the same ones from the first installment only a bit altered.
"The Monuments Men" is an interesting movie in its theme and a wonderful true story to bring to the silver screen.
This movie has an amazing group of talented actors/actresses, each one of them if not by the time the movie came out, was already a highly regarded name, later on, they would become one in the future. Although, as in many cases of movies based on a book the movie doesn't cover some issues. It was notable that the Monuments Men had a connection prior to the making of the platoon and there were references and moments in the movie that show this, we can all discard this point and say that it is a nod to the fans of the book or something else, but for someone who is seeing this for the first time doesn't get the full perception of this. One of the moments was between Bill Murray's character and Bob Balaban's there was obvious something between this two but what? And Donald it was said throughout the movie that he wants to redeem himself but never explained why.
The movie has a very classic old jazz band vibe to it, the interactions from the male characters are the biggest tell-tale here.
There are two characters here that are given more focus during the movie Ma Rainey played by Viola Davis (I almost didn't recognise her the makeup department did an amazing job), is a harsh and brutal woman to everyone around her but to the persons close to her she is really nice and sweet, and Levee played by Chadwick Boseman (whose last performance was in this movie and did a wonderful job), he is a young boy with big dreams and a big mouth and eagerness to follow his mouth, he always thinks in the moment without any repercussion to his acts.
These two characters disagree with each other a lot and I think the reason this is, is because it's a metaphor for the eagerness of youth vs the calm and collectiveness of someone who has dealt with the sorrows in life a lot. This point is mainly shown by how they both treat the music producers!
Ma knows very well what everyone from the recording studio wants from her, and knows that because of that she can demand her respect up to a certain point and doesn't let herself get fooled by their "niceness". She is very cautious and rational with her actions and demands. On the other hand Levee gets himself easily fold , with his ambitions and passions clouding his judgments and making him make grave mistakes by letting himself get carried by his emotions. This is particularly shown to us at the end of the movie!
The soundtrack to this movie was just simply amazing, very well used at the moment it showed up!
I personally wouldn't say that this movie has a plot, in lack of that it tells different stories so that we are able to get various teenage experiences and to be able to connect to a certain character.
