  • La La Land

    La La Land

    ★★★★★

    Days have passed since I’ve watched La La Land and I still don't know what to say about it. There’s a certain easiness in pointing out every flaw in a movie, but what can I say when I can't find any weak points?

    For starters, I’ve tried to going for the obvious, which is the fact that I don't like Jazz and maybe that could be one thing ruining the experience for me. But that wouldn't be true because even…

  • Avengers: Infinity War

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★★

    It was exactly 10 years ago that Marvel slowly started something that could easily fail or become the greatest achievement of the studio. But destiny, and everyone involved in Iron Man’s production, choose the later and after a decade we’re watching something we couldn’t even think of when we first saw Tony Stark wearing his robotic suit.

    And after 18 movies that shaped what we now know as Marvel Cinematic Universe, we get to watch the 19th entry in this…

    Under the Shadow

    ★★★★

    [as part of the Film Raffle on r/Letterboxd discord server (join us!), suggested by Youssef ElNahas)

    Under the Shadow starts by giving us a false sense of safety and peace, which is essential to create a feeling of helplessness and claustrophobia which will never leave us after the first minutes of this movie. And even though it presents itself as a movie revolving around ghosts, it’s the surrounding horror among the characters that intensify everything else.

    There’s the all-present danger…

  • Victoria

    Victoria

    ★★★★

    It took me five years to finally watch something that I always wanted but never had the urge to do so. A couple of years ago, when I’ve seen Laia Costa on Newness, I knew I had to watch Victoria, but even then I let it pass but now I felt it was time.

    There’s two things in this movie that definitely helps it a lot. One of them may already be obvious, it’s Laia Costa. She’s an amazing actress…

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    ★★★★½

    In a time where we get to see a new superhero movie, at least, each month, and that everyone gets to complain but still keeps watching them, it’s expected to see the industry getting saturated with this kind of movies. It’s Marvel, DC, Fox, Sony and every other studio that manage to get the rights of some other obscure comic book that gets a live-action adaptation.

    However, the money making machine that is Marvel keeps dominating the market, so it’s…

  • Beautiful Boy

    Beautiful Boy

    ★★★

    It was with considerable excitement I've waited for Beautiful Boy. The cast was amazing, the story too, and it all seemed to be clicking well together.
    Even though that was almost always the case, there were a couple of things that stopped me from really take full advantage of this movie.
    One of those things was how chopped everything is in the very beginning. I understand they had to do that so they could advance with the story. However, I…
