    The Great Hack

    ★★½

    Not exactly the most rigorous movie considering the importance of its subject matter.

  • Pain and Glory

    Pain and Glory

    ★★★★

    I think I love Almodóvar even more everytime he is more introspective. Pain and Glory is magnificent and demonstrates a director that is in completely control of his craft. Along side La Mala Educación y Todo sobre mi Madre I believe this is one of my favorites of him. Touching, sutil and powerful. Need to see it again ASAP.

    Summer 1993

    ★★★★½

    The last scene is simply a miracle. Astonishing and remarkable. When it ended I couldn't even exit the theatre, is my personal favorite from 2017 and I can't wait to see it over and over again.

  • Aladdin

    Aladdin

    ★★½

    It's kind of ironical how such a visually vibrant and colorful movie feels so empty and lifeless. The music is amazing (as it has been since the original) and to be fair, Will Smith is not that bad either. The thing is that it feels so pointless, hollow and redundant that it's really hard to get into. Marwan Kenzari kind of steals the show for me, but it isn't enough to completely buy me into this one.
