    ★★★★

    85/100

    It's obviously not the same experience in your home than in the movie theater but I still think it's a pretty solid film.

  • Pacific Rim: Uprising

    Pacific Rim: Uprising

    ★★

    45/100

    I guess for David Harbour this one failed as well because of Guillermo del Toro's fans.
    Nothing to do with quality.

  • Fantasy Island

    Fantasy Island

    25/100

    Many horror films don't have any benefit or learning. Usually the bad ones, and boy are there too many. Those are the ones that disappoint the most.

    Fantasy Island worst mistake besides the lousy quality is that it doesn't even seem to know what the hell wanted to be and beyond the poor performance, this films is really boring but after seeing the mediocre repertoire of its director I'm not surprised.

  • Permission

    Permission

    ★★★

    60/100

    Personally, I liked it, I've seen a lot of bad romantic comedies and this one it's slightly above the average.
    The only thing that disappointed me is that even though its premise is an adult premise, the development and the characters don't treat it that way, which is a shame.

    Perhaps the director believed that viewers wouldn't find it more attractive if he didn't give it that goofy touch of other several rom-coms.
    On the bright side, it could've been worse but it manages to stay afloat to keep things amusing.

  • Vanilla Sky

    Vanilla Sky

    ★★½

    50/100

    An ambitious project in which Tom Cruise and Cameron Crowe tried to be taken more seriously and both failed.
    Cruise was unable to do a deep and remarkable performance, while Crowe delivered a confusing and disjointed film.

  • Vivarium

    ★★★

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

    65/100

    It's interesting to understand that the various interpretations this movie can have will vary depending on the viewer, but irrevocably its conclusion is still the same and that's the key element of this story.

    Vivarium is a kind of lost episode from The Twilight Zone. A tale about being trapped in an existential circle over which you simply have no control, or if you came to believe that you had it, now you have to face reality and accept…

  • The Ruins

    The Ruins

    ★★

    45/100

    Cheap gore trying to justify the predictability of its plot and the enormous lack of creativity.

  • The Truth About Emanuel

    The Truth About Emanuel

    ★★

    40/100

    The story goes out of the hands of the director and the mystery that in a way seemed horror at first begins to unfold in a lazy drama that although becomes a bit sad, is never effective and frankly not worthy of your time.

  • The Hunt

    The Hunt

    ★★

    45/100

    It's troublesome when you try to be a sort of satirical political statement and you're unable to land your ideas more cohesively and convincing for that matter.

    I mean it's not supposed to be taken seriously but still, if the comment is how divided liberals and conservatives are in the US right now, at least it would've been more entertaining if it hadn't felt so washed out.

  • The Platform

    The Platform

    ★★★

    60/100

    A dystopian allegory about the society classes and the capitalist system.

    Frankly there's nothing innovative in here, after all anyone who read a bit on the subject and are seeing many of the situations that are currently happening in the world because of COVID-19 will realize that their particular message is already out there.

    The execution was interesting and personally I cannot argue that it wasn't a sufficiently entertaining film, but its message hardly teaches anything new, even considering what its ending implies.

  • The Little Rascals Save the Day

    The Little Rascals Save the Day

    ★½

    30/10

    You have to know when a bad idea will continue to be a bad idea, no matter what angle you look at it from.

  • Shutter Island

    Shutter Island

    ★★★★½

    90/100

    I recently finished the book. Never actually read it before and although perhaps the movie influenced me, despite the fact that the book seemed quite entertaining, it simply doesn't have the atmosphere of the film.
    Obviously they're two different media but in this case the adaptation is much better than the source material.

    And even though the story is completely built for the Teddy Daniels character storyline twist and I really like that ending, part of me would also…
