• The Falcon and the Winter Soldier

    The Falcon and the Winter Soldier

    ★★½

    Not as good as the Captain America films, but still a fun buddy-spy show. The twist with certain female character who comes back after the last two Captains was obvious from the first time she appeared on the screen though.

    Also, I wonder how much of a coincidence it was that the actor playing the clumsy Faux-ptain America failure John Walker looks exactly like that previous attempt at this hero from this atrocious 1990 movie, who was also presented as a clumsy failure?

  • Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers

    Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers

    ★★½

    I'm really happy I haven't seen it in cinema, because not having the option of pausing to see all the jokes on screen or rewinding 10 seconds to double-check some joke, would be very frustrating.

    This was surprisingly fun to watch, even though obviously a committee-driven nostalgia-fest with some questionable choice of the main antagonist.

  • Elisa & Marcela

    Elisa & Marcela

    ★★★½

    You won't see that on Disney+.

    Seriously, the streaming service of those guys who have half the franchises in the world, including Star Wars (with that one blink-and-you-miss it kiss that's easily cuttable for the Chinese and other markets) and Marvel (where you had to wait 20 movies for a easily-dubbable mention of a date between two men, and another four for an actual on-screen gay couple in Eternals) and all the animated features (where you had to look really…

  • Downton Abbey: A New Era

    Downton Abbey: A New Era

    ★★½

    I remember three years ago, before the pandemic, when me and my Wife left the cinema from the previous "Downton Abbey" movie, I said that while the show is over, I wouldn't mind this new format of a movie once every 2-3 years that would continue the story of Downton Abbeey lords and staff. And lo and behold, here it is!

    While the previous was better and told a more serious story, while this one is overall pretty silly (the…

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★½

    It seems that even I am getting tired of MCU... still, some 10 movies after pretty much everyone I know, but this movie - despite being "just" 2 hours long - was tiring.

    I had fun, admittedly. I jumped in my seat once or twice, laughed both at the jokes and at the meta content (this is Sam at his Raimi-est, taking a lot from both his Spiderman- and early horror-comedy years), I shed a tear or two, so I…

  • Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★½

    Only after watching I learned that this movie was made by the duo that made "Swiss Army Knife", which I loved.
    I heard so much good about this movie that I moved heaven and earth to see it in cinema, and I made a point of watching it before going to "Dr Strange and the Multiverse of Madness". Obviously this is a better movie, and it's great even not compared to that other one.
    Although I have to admit the…

    Turning Red

    ★★★½

    Took my daughter to see it and she loved it!

  • Sonic the Hedgehog

    Sonic the Hedgehog

    ★½

    What a bore... Jim Carrey was cute, but otherwise it was such a calculated boring movie that NEVER. SHUTS. UP.

  • Encanto

    Encanto

    ★★★

    Very nice story about toxic perfectionism and the power of being your true, imperfect self.

  • The Batman

    The Batman

    ★★★

    The first part - between half and two-thirds - of this veery long movie were really good. It was a nice change to watch a Batman film that for the first time on a big screen focused on the detective, not the costumed superhero side of this character. The ending(s) - plural - were dragging for too long though, adding one escalation after another, each less believable than the last.

    Still, pretty good. It's like Burton's "Batman Returns" done Nolan-style.

  • Don't Look Up

    Don't Look Up

    ★★½

    Fucking depressing and too close for comfort until the very last part, where all hope is lost.

  • The Amazing Spider-Man

    The Amazing Spider-Man

    ★½

    Sat down to watch this coming fresh from "Spider-Man No Way Home", in which Andrew Garfield gave such a nice performance that I decided to give this one a chance after all. Also, my friend recommended it, but he also admitted he's a fanboy.

    And boooy is this a mess. I remember first being shocked by the news of a new Spider-Man reboot coming just a couple years after the Raimi's "Spider-Man 3" fiasco. But that was a time for…
