• Escape From Pretoria

    Escape From Pretoria

    ★★★

    Based in a true story, this prison escape movie has it's exciting moments and in some situations make you sit on the edge of you seat.
    Although, I expected more from this, maybe more character development.
    It's a good movie, nothing expecial.

  • Fool's Gold

    Fool's Gold

    ★★½

    This is a fun movie about a treasure hunt.
    It's silly, quirky and it doesn't take himself too serious. So enjoy it for what it is, a mix of comedy, action and romance.

  • Knives Out

    Knives Out

    ★★★★

    What a nice surprise! We live in a time where we don't get good murder mysteries movies anymore, but this is the exception.

    The plot is up to par with the classic murder mysteries authors from decades ago.

    The end and the twist doesn't disappoint (in my opinion) and is made in a very clever way.

    Daniel Craig was great in this one.

  • Mine

    Mine

    I was curious on how could a film about a soldier standing on a mine be interesting and entertaining, so I gave this one a shot.

    Well, spoiler, it's neither. This is a slow and boring movie and I didn't find any redeming feature in it.

    AVOID stepping on this movie.

  • Apocalyptic

    Apocalyptic

    ★★½

    You may notice a trend here. My last movies were found footage and this one is too. I'm sorry but I just saw a list of found footage movies here on letterbox.
    This one is about a journalist and her cameraman that are doing a piece about a cult that lives isolated and worship their leader like a God. I mean, it's the stereotypical cult movie.
    Everything that you think that will happen, happens.
    It's a very predictable and unoriginal…

  • Lake Mungo

    Lake Mungo

    ★★★★½

    This found footage documentary is AMAZING!
    This is not you typical found footage movie in terms of story and structure. It's not a camera crew entering a haunted house or something, is a documentary telling the story of a family after the daughter dies in Lake Mungo and the strange things that happen after that.

    It starts really creepy, then the story takes many twists that you just can't predict what happens next or where this is going.

    Unpredictable, scary, interesting and original, this is a movie you SHOULD watch if you like this genre of found footage.

  • Dark Shadows

    Dark Shadows

    ★½

    It's like a unfunny Mr. Bean became a vampire.
    This is why I don't like Tim Burton films anymore, style over substance.
    Very few things in this film made sence and it's not funny at all.
    It really showed that Johnny Dep couldn't care less.

  • Willow Creek

    Willow Creek

    ★★★½

    I'm a found footage fan. I have been since I've watched Blair Witch Project when I was a kid.

    This film is like the premise of Blair Witch, but insted of a witch, theres Big Foot. There, there's your premise.

    It's simple but effective. It creates tension very well. Some of the plot points are just stupid, but I won't get into detail because of spoilers.

    There is a 18 minute scene I fucking loved, I couldn't take my eyes…

  • Sad Hill Unearthed

    Sad Hill Unearthed

    ★★★★

    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is one of my favorite movie of all time (Top 3).
    This documentary is about a group of fans of the film that decide to unearth and recover the famous cemetery of Sad Hill, where the conclusion of GBU takes place. I've seen that scene (one of the best in cinema history) countless times, so this subject is very dear to me.
    I liked this documentary alot, it shows the love that people have for this art called cinema.
    If you love the movie, you will love this doc.

  • The Wind

    The Wind

    ★★★★

    I love western horror, I just find them so athmosferic and claustrophobic. It's like you can't just call the police for help with your cellphone right?
    This movie has everything of that. A good story mixed with good horror elements. What more can you ask?
    Great performances too.
    Loved it.

  • Midway

    Midway

    ★★★★

    I really enjoyed this film. I think it's a great WWII film in a time good WWII don't come out very often.
    Great visual effects and action packed scenes with a lot of dogfight in the air.
    It's like Top Gun in WWII, what's not to love?

  • Leave No Trace

    Leave No Trace

    ★★★½

    A movie about a father and his daughter that are living in the woods, far from society.

    As the story unfolds, you start to understand why the father choses this life for him, dragging his daughter in the process.

    In fact, this is a drama about PTSD and the devastating effects on human lifes.

    Very well acted by the two leads, this film is way more than it seems at the begining.
