• King Richard

    King Richard

    ★★★½

    Definitely not bad, but I was hoping for a different film structure, one that would break out of the normative framework of a biopic. The performances were credible and the movie didn't get too long at any point. The score was also very interesting. But, as I say, in my opinion, something was missing that could make King Richard stand out among the many life story feature films. Still, Beyoncé's song: breathtaking.

  • Encanto

    Encanto

    ★★★★

    Wondering what a Colombian thinks about the accuracy of the culture and style of Encanto? Let me tell you.

    While many say that the story could be set anywhere else, Colombia is the perfect place for Encanto. Our country had the longest armed conflict in history, which left thousands of families displaced because of illegal groups, such as the guerrillas. Encanto arises from this internal migration, and from the struggle to survive in a territory that was bathed in blood…

  • Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★½

    My fucking hippie motherfucker mémoire of going to the movies nonstop before the pandemic. What a time to be alive and, of course, what a movie!

    Vibrant direction and screenplay, must-see performances, iconic production design and bare feet.

  • tick, tick...BOOM!

    tick, tick...BOOM!

    ★★★★★

    I never would've imagined that my perception of life would change so much in 2 hours. Beyond the direction and the screenplay (and all the technical aspects), what I look for the most in a movie is for it to play with my emotions. That, oddly enough, was what tick, tick…BOOM! did in such a magical way.

    In fact, I've never cried over a movie before, which is funny because, in the end, after the last line, I spent 20 minutes crying non-stop. This, plus Andrew Garfield, is what makes tick, tick… BOOM! be a dazzling adventure.

  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    ★★★½

    Complex situation that I find myself in every time I think about ESOTSM.

    The most redeemable element I find is Kate Winslet, who is easily phenomenal in everything she does, as is Jim Carrey, who gives an acting masterclass. The script seems excellent to me and has a striking rhythm, as does the editing. The only thing I don't like that much is the overall tone. I mean, sometimes I don't know what genre I'm watching, or if I have…

  • Eternals

    Eternals

    ★★★

    I don't know how to feel. It's obvious that the direction, screenplay and cinematography are a success, but there's something about this movie that's simply out of place.

    Eternals is far from begin bad, and it's much better than other MCU films, but at the same time is full of boring and slow moments. The plot isn't convincing and the action sequences aren't flashy enough. I was very excited for this, but now I'm a little disappointed.

  • Pain and Glory

    Pain and Glory

    ★★★★½

    I once read a comment that said it would be difficult to enjoy Pain and Glory without being a huge Almodóvar fan. So, without great expectations, and without being a great admirer of his filmography, I entered the cinema to let myself be carried away by what was projected on the big screen. But actually... I was blown away.

    What a good movie Pain and Glory was. Everything worked perfectly, from the first scenes that captivated me with their maximum…

  • GoodFellas

    GoodFellas

    ★★★★½

    This was the project that made me understand why some films are "cinema" and others are not.

    GoodFellas was a pleasant surprise. I came across a colorful film, full of nuances and engaging dialogues. A film that isn't afraid of being iconic, but that surely didn't want to be when it was made. An ideally executed film in every sense, including masterful directing and memorable performances, soundtrack, and cinematography.

    I witnessed a fully captivating and welcoming story, and of course a collective and crude portrait of who the good fellas are in the life we live.

  • No Time to Die

    No Time to Die

    ★★★★

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

    Cleverly written and effectively enjoyable, No Time to Die is worth its run time, because it never gets slow, let alone inordinately long. Overall, its action scenes do not disappoint at all, and the direction, score and cinematography are highly redeemable. Still, there is something missing: a true antagonist.

    Even though Rami Malek's character is well constructed, narratively speaking, I don't feel like he's evil enough to pose a threat (he is actually boring sometimes). Furthermore, I feel that the…

  • There Will Be Blood

    There Will Be Blood

    ★★★★★

    Some are excellent, others stay with you forever. There are works of art and there are some worthy of timeless standing ovations. However, few feature films in history are as lofty as There Will Be Blood. I have no words to describe such monstrosity. It is simply a visual spectacle from beginning to end.

    There is not a single element that is not optimal in this film; even so, the most remarkable thing is PTA himself: the greatest mastermind in…

  • Ma

    Ma

    ★★½

    I don't wanna say I'm wasting my time, but I kinda am. Ma is neither good nor bad, but is more bad than good. In other words, it's one of those films that generates certain expectations, but that, a year later, is completely forgotten. I don't mean to say I had a bad time watching Ma, but I could've watched another one better, because at the end of the day, the story was bland and the suspense: nil.

  • Ted 2

    Ted 2

    ★★★

    Literally the same review as Ted, because I feel like they are the same movie:

    Funny and irreverent, but only useful to have a good time with friends, definitely not to exemplify the magic of films. Ted 2 does its job of entertaining, but falls short in trying to be outstanding. I guess it's ok.
