    Dune

    ★★★★★

    As someone who deeply loves Frank Herbert's book Dune, I couldn't help but get excited for witnessing its adaptation from my favorite director Denis Villeneuve. My expectations were high, very high, and only that man could ever surpass them, and I really hope that part two will see the light of day!

    Denis Villeneuve crafts carefully his art while staying true to the original work. He gives enough information, lore and details to give you a full immersion of Dune's…

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    The first (and last) thirty minutes of Mad Max: Fury Road are epic in every single aspect. I could watch them every day. But as a whole, the movie itself is glorious: except from a few details like the modification of the environment, everything is real, from the Namibian desert to the cars, as well as the explosions. It's the return of the glory days, an equivalent of a David Lean film production.

    Tom Hardy was the best choice (and…

    The Secret World of Arrietty

    ★★★★

    It's no secret that Ghibli studios delivers movies with life lessons and reminding you what's good in our world. The Secret World of Arrietty is no different, except that it's not told by Miyazaky.

    Yet you can see that Hiromasa Yonebayashi is highly influenced by the Grand Master's art. The drawings are pretty similar to the works of Miyazaki, and that's far from a negative criticism. It's rather short (a little more than 90 minutes), yet it's got everything you…

  • La La Land

    La La Land

    ★★★★½

    With the musicals that I saw the last couple of days, and mostly after watching Les parapluies de Cherbourg, I couldn't help myself but rewatch La La Land, a film that still warms my heart and shatters it to pieces. A love letter to both cinema/musical and Los Angeles.

    The intro is amazing. You've got a presentation of different people listening to different styles of music, and then an impressive dancing sequence filled with colour. And in the midst of…

    Boy A

    ★★★★

    I won't be very original if I told you that Andrew Garfield (from the very start) is a phenomenal actor with such a wide diversity in his acting skills, but damn it, Boy A was just the proof that Andrew was born to be something incredible.

    Boy A brings a really thought-provoking and tricky moral ethic: would you give another chance to someone whose past actions are unforgivable? Would you think that everyone can get a second chance, even after…

    A Night at the Opera

    ★★★★½

    I had a lot of fun watching A Night at the Opera. It's certainly far from the most clever comedy that exists, but more than once did I burst out of laughter.

    There are so many dumb characters like Tomasso (Harpo Marx) or dumb moments where Otis (Groucho Marx) tries to hide his friends from the police in his hotel apartment. It genuinely feels like a cartoon show such as the Looney Toons. But there's also so many great quotes…
