    Horse Girl

    ★★½

    I don't know what to think about this movie, I don't think even the filmmakers know what they were trying to accomplish, it felt a bit all over the place. Alison Brie's performance is great, but not everything worked in the development of the story.

    I believe the third act was completely insane and even though was entertaining to watch it didn't work quite well. This is an odd movie, but it might be worth it for some people.

  • The Matrix

    The Matrix

    ★★★★½

    Wow, I don't think it's been 21 years since the premiere of The Matrix.

    A timeless film.

    to quote Logic

    I'm the one, bitch, I am the one, like Keanu Reeves

  • Downhill

    Downhill

    ★★

    I know this is supposed to be a black comedy blend with drama, but I don't think it worked neither on both sides. It isn't funny, some scenes drag for so long and the interaction between the characters is awkward.

    It's such a shame because Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell are both very likable, but here they looked uncomfortable.

  • Little Joe

    Little Joe

    ★★

    I didn't like it, I mean, the movie looked good with all those colors popping out, but the story was a bit dull and not that interesting either, actually, I ended up thinking that it was a little too pretentious. The film lacks tension and there's never a build-up whatsoever. Overall, I found the movie rather weak and boring.

  • Big Time Adolescence

    Big Time Adolescence

    ★★★½

    A different kind of coming-of-age. A story that balances well the exact amount of humor with a sense of rawness to give more realism and meaning to this movie. Looking for a role model is something that we can all identify, even when this model isn't the best option. Pete Davidson manages to be charismatic even though from the beginning we know that his character is completely lost and that he is not the best for Monroe.

    A simple but effective movie, good direction from Jason Orley and good soundtrack.

  • Seberg

    Seberg

    ★★½

    There are good things in this film, Kristen Stewart's performance for example. She is great here conveying many emotions and transmitting that paranoia that Jean Seberg must have felt back then. Also, I liked the thin layer of criticism against the FBI, because not only them but so many other government institutions do this kind of thing just to get information that ends up harming the people.

    Unfortunately, not everything is great in this movie, perhaps I wanted to see…

  • Coach Carter

    Coach Carter

    ★★★

    La he visto incontables veces y me gusta aunque sigue la clásica formula. Lo mejor es Samuel L. Jackson.

    PD: Timo Cruz tuvo suerte que Channing, Lombriz y los otros hicieron las lagartijas y los suicidios por el.

  • This Is the End

    This Is the End

    ★★★★

    Probably, one of my favorite comedies of the last decade. This movie is hilarious, every line by Danny McBride makes me laugh hard.

  • The Way Back

    The Way Back

    ★★★½

    I like stories about catharsis, I like stories that focus on broken characters that need to find something to heal, but most of all, I like inspirational sports dramas in which we support the underdog, I mean, I love this kind of movies even though follow a basic traditional formula.

    The Way Back works thanks to a terrific performance by Ben Affleck, here, we see a man who is at his lowest point, who is submerged in alcoholism and who…

  • The Good Liar

    The Good Liar

    ★★½

    I was never bored, but the story isn't that interesting as it should've been. The twist at the end is a bit forced, but it works thanks to the performances, both Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren are really good driving the entire plot.

    My biggest issue with the film is that is very predictable. Since the beginning, I knew how the story will unfold and everything happened exactly as I would have imagined.

  • The Platform

    The Platform

    ★★★½

    Me sorprendió. Una buena película española, eso sí, no es muy sutil en su mensaje porque es bastante OBVIO que nos presenta lo peor que puede hacer la misma humanidad en esos pisos, ya sea que estén debajo o arriba, no importa eso ya que siempre saldrá el lado horrible del ser humano. Los conceptos sobre clasismo, existencialismo, fe y religión están bien concebidos.

    La producción de esta película esta muy bien hecha, es solo ese lugar con la plataforma y el hoyo pero eso basta para que tengamos una muy buena historia.

  • The Hunt

    The Hunt

    ★★★

    I can't believe many people create a huge ass controversy around this movie. Nowadays with twitter, many people cause riots over everything, it feels like no one can say anything because eventually will be some people who will find a way to protest against you and try to ban a different opinion.

    Take this film, for example, this is a satire, that's the whole point about it, it's a film that tries to mock both parties, but somehow that was…
