  • Bird Box

    Bird Box

    ★★

    This movie is too long! It could easily be removed half an hour from the plot that would help speed up the plot and catch the viewer more easily. Honestly, you never see the creatures so instead of making the story more interesting it just makes it more boring, it's like they say screaming: we don't have enough budget! Far inferior to A Quiet Place, watch this film without any expectation or as the protagonists of this film, with a…

  • Blade Runner 2049

    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★

    To be honest, this film works more like an artistic exercise than a narrative. Technically it's spectacular, cinematography is the best you can see on a screen today and the special effects are certainly more than spectacular. The design of the city, vehicles and rooms works perfectly and manages to set the viewer in this world. However, narratively speaking this film fails. At no time is anything original, creative or innovative. Everything the film presents about the future has already…

  • Roald Dahl's The Witches

    Roald Dahl's The Witches

    ★★

    Anne Hathaway gives the worst performance of her life in this film

  • Roald Dahl's The Witches

    Roald Dahl's The Witches

    ★★

    A film that left me totally indifferent

  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

    ★★

    What's the problem with this franchise that they can't make any movies with an original or fresh idea? Another film to forget about the leatherface franchise, being honest already forget the end of this film

  • A Nightmare on Elm Street

    A Nightmare on Elm Street

    ★★

    To be honest, when you go to see a movie of the current slasher genre you know what to expect. One between a bad and decent film with some silly comedy, some occasional nudes and a silly plot. There are some sparks within the genre, such as the new Halloween sequel, but they are usually hard to find.
    I knew when it comes to watching this film that it would be no better than the original film and that it…

  • Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

    Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

    ★★

    Long, noisy and really stupid

  • X-Men: Apocalypse

    X-Men: Apocalypse

    ★★

    The biggest sin of this film is that it wastes opportunities that could have turned it into a great superhero movie. The 4 horsemen of the apocalypse were one of the things that caught my eye the most, they built the excitement around them to make them in the end a joke. They are not important, they are not intimidating and have no relevance to the story.
    Apocalypse may have been Fox's Thanos, the original character being extremely powerful, intimidating…

  • Ant-Man and the Wasp

    Ant-Man and the Wasp

    ★★

    There are two kinds of superhero movies. The first kind tries to innovate and challenge the limits of the genre so they can be something else. They are not just looking to entertain their audience, but leave a teaching at deeper levels, such as social criticisms. These films are real jewels in this genre and sadly they are very few. The other kind is empty, dumb movies that seek to offer the viewer cheap entertainment and bad jokes.Unfortunately Ant Man…

  • Pet Sematary

    Pet Sematary

    ★★

    Having a pretty good base material, it's surprising how this film manages to be so mediocre. Despite the cast's decent performances, everything is overshadowed by a lousy script adapted from one of King's best novels. Without a doubt, this was a missed opportunity.

  • Beware the Slenderman

    Beware the Slenderman

    ★★

    It could easily have been cut half an hour from this documentary, which honestly feels too long. It addresses important issues such as mental health and internet management care so the message must endure, but I wouldn’t recommend this documentary to anyone.

  • The King

    The King

    ★★

    I think the only problem with this film is the script that doesn't captivate the viewer and can sometimes become boring. But everything else works perfectly well, so unfortunately I feel it's a great opportunity that was wasted.
