    Travis: The True Story of Travis Walton

    ★★★★

    On opposite to the good FIRE IN THE SKY (1993) that brings a vision of mystery and horror, this documentary takes Travis Walton's UFO experience to the sci-fi, political and quasi-spiritual spectrum. I appreciate the horror cinema of FIRE IN THE SKY (1993), but I honestly prefer this approach more closely linked to the reality of the case. Good material for those who like ufology and also for those who like documentaries.

    ★★★★

    Beautiful, funny and touching film. Another day I could watch this one and rating with five stars, because it's near perfect. It took me a little while to buy the idea of Julia Roberts' character, but then the film takes off. The tone is almost never so serious to create discomfort, the shrewd comical moments - funny - manage to balance and work very well. The unpretentious reflection which the film brings surprisingly is deep enough to genuinely touched you. I wish everyone could enjoy this movie with the passion I could. Pure gold from romance comedy.

    Sing Street

    ★★★★½

    Get feeling-goods elements from The School of Rock, the coming-of-age of Almost Famous, the daring of Dazed and Confused and mixed with the emotional signature of John Carney: And yeah, we got the great Sing Street!

    Dublin, 1980s.

    After changing schools for financial reasons, Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) meets Raphina (Lucy Boynton) for who he falls in love and begins a band to conquer her.

    This is a common premise of the genre and may even sound cliché. But it's a…
