    Triangle of Sadness

    ★★★★

    I should be logging in See how they run, but I was soo tired I fell asleep during it even though I was quite enjoying it, so I’ll have to watch it again. I was afraid the same would happen to me during this movie because the day had been equally exhausting...happy to report I was locked in from the start.

    I expected the film to be funny, but not this funny! It’s a delight and the story flows with…

  • Thor: Love and Thunder

    Thor: Love and Thunder

    ★★★

    Where to begin... let’s recap my thoughts on Thor 3. That movie is near the bottom of my MCU ranking but I gave it 4/5 stars. That means, if the movie wasn’t part of a larger movie with stablished characters suddenly acting differently I would enjoy it SO much more. It’s energetic and while not all jokes land, it’s still a great comedy.

    I had hoped that by having Thor 3 as a precedent, that the jarring feeling could be…

  • Top Gun: Maverick

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★½

    When I first heard of this movie coming out, I got excited even though I had never seen the original. The trailer came out and I really liked it, but people around me were losing their minds over it and I wasn’t seeing the magic. Still, I decided to watch Top Gun to become emotionally attached and because my family absolutely loved that movie. I liked it...but I wasn’t seeing the magic. For some reason I was still very much…

  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2

    Sonic the Hedgehog 2

    ★★★½

    Before I say anything else: I really liked it.

    When I went to see the first film, I went in with low expectations, and as a result was very pleasantly surprised as how charming and funny it ended up being. Two years later and I was excited to watch this one because of it. It’s not that it didn’t meet my expectations, but it didn’t surpass them.

    Expectations aside, I don’t think this one is better than the first one.…

  • Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★½

    What can I write that hasn’t already been written... I loved the movie, the journey it took me in felt effortless. 

    I have yet to watch Swiss Army man, or any other work from the Daniels, so I can’t say whether they have a certain “style” (though I’m sure they do). I have seen however Sense8, and for most of the movie, even knowing they weren’t attached, I kept sensing the Wachowski’s presence. And it was not just from Sense8…

  • The Lost City

    The Lost City

    ★★★

    This was super predictable and very charming at the same time. I was pleasantly surprised the characters weren’t the caricature I was expecting them to. The plot did nothing for me, but dialogue got me to smile quite often.

    I don’t have much to say about it. It’s fairly average, but it does its job at the end of the day. Daniel Radcliffe as the villain is always a treat!

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★½

    I really liked this movie. I didn’t love it the way I wanted to love it, but it’s another solid entry into the MCU. For a movie called “Multiverse of madness” though, it was missing some madness. It all was fairly straight forward.

    Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen were great as usual. With Wanda’s character it’s funny, we had a whole series with her that should have made her character arc smooth, but the developments shown here still felt rushed…

  • Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore

    Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore

    ★★★★

    Yesterday I was pleasantly surprised to see Germany was getting this earlier. I was starting to plan out next weekend around the movie release and then: here it was!

    Well, I loved it! Then again, I also love the other two entries in the franchise. I’m just sad the the movie is surrounded by controversy because I couldn’t get as excited about it as I was when the credits on the second film rolled. But once the movie began, all…

  • Marry Me

    Marry Me

    ★★★

    This was better than I originally thought it’d be, but not as good as I subsequently thought it might be. 

    It’s fine. It’s cute. It’s not that exciting. The characters are very likeable. For a romance film, I was hoping the romance would be more gripping. The chemistry is there, there was just something missing.

    Overall still a good film to pass the time.

  • Parallel Mothers

    Parallel Mothers

    ★★★½

    With this I’ve only seen two Almodóvar films. I can start to see his style. I have to say, between this and Pain and Glory I much prefer the latter though.

    This movie started really strong and it had an intense middle portion but I wasn’t really sold on the last act. I appreciated it wasn’t taking any predictable and that’s why I so wanted to love where it wasn’t going...I just didn’t.

    Penelope Cruz though wasn’t phenomenal the whole way through. She commanded the screen and created a great characters in Janis.

  • Turning Red

    Turning Red

    ★★★

    The trailer didn’t really do much for me, but it being a Pixar movie and after all the positive reactions I was still hopeful I would be charmed by it.

    It didn’t capture my heart the way I wanted it to, but it was sweet and funny enough that I had a good time. I specially loved the character of the mom.

    It went by very quickly as it moved at a breakneck pace, bursting with energy. We’ll see how…

  • Cyrano

    Cyrano

    ★★★

    I really wanted ti lovebirds this, but I just “liked it”. I can’t put my finger on what was off, but I never truly clicked with the film.

    It looked great, the production design, costumes and acting all top notch. I liked the melody of the songs but the lyrics didn’t wow me enough, and some would feel incomplete, like I was just getting a tease instead of the whole number.

    It was still enjoyable enough and Peter Dinklage’s performance alone is worth it.
