  • Gloria 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 10 Jan, 2015

    such a refreshing film that does manage to balance the [melo]drama with the comic while juggling musical numbers that work very well within the whole movie; SOFIA ESPINOSA's portrayal of the iconic pop singer lifts the whole thing to an honest portrayal.

  • Mommy 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 10 Jan, 2015

    DOLAN most well balanced work to this date is also his most heartbreaking, it is an extraordinarily well acted movie that portrays the impossibly working relationship between a mother and his very troubled son that with the help of the director's usual aesthetic excesses [that are not quite excessive this time] make for a film that is very emotional but never melodramatic.

  • The Conjuring 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 13 Aug, 2013 2

    scary and smart this film is as well crafted as every other movie but unlike many and based on a screenplay that homages and pays tributes to many genre classics JAMES WAN playful and resourceful directing makes the whole thing a dynamic and electric picture that never stops haunting you.

  • Instructions Not Included 2013

    ★★½ Watched 24 Sep, 2013 1

    stumbling while swinging between physical, raunchy comedy and over-the-top melodrama this film never lacks ideas, however the writing must have been a problem from the start since the movie fails to feel as a whole maybe because of its many turns and twists; nevertheless it is an enjoyable experience with many [maybe too many] things to keep you busy enough [the production design team had some fun with those sweet animated stories and the very memorable photoshopped pictures].
