  • Black Widow

    Black Widow

    ★★★

    Florence Pugh can smash my head with a fucking hammer and I'll still simp for her.

  • Last Night in Soho

    Last Night in Soho

    ★★★

    It has its great moments and interesting ideas but I didn't like the ending at all, it felt simple and kind of cliché.
    I have more issues with this movie but it's hard to put my finger on them.
    It's not that I didn't like it either, it's just not some of the best things I've seen this year.
    The music and cinematography are fantastic, and the acting is good.
    It's just the plot that didn't really sell it to me.

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★★

    It's good but I didn't feel like it was something new or spectacular. Expected more from Denis, or actually, less? 
    Maybe it's just me liking more minimalistic, compact and concrete works than those trying to contain  500 pages of lore and worldbuilding.


    I loved Arrival because it was so concise, yet so powerful. With Dune, it feels like much more shine for much less sustance, and even being two and a half hours long, it sounds like two movies won't even reach the surface of everything the book has to offer.

  • The Conjuring

    The Conjuring

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    It's ok I guess, I had a good time.

    It's fun and it's not bad but it's quite shallow
    Except for the Warrens, every single character in here... Is not a character. They are just plot devices,  they have no personality or do anything except things related to the plot and as such, you never care about them or about what's happening to them. I think the scarier part of the movie is when the spirit threatens the Warrens' daughter…
