    Unbroken

    ★★½

    Angelina Jolie cares for her main character and she does it well, same for Jack O'Connell who makes a terrific performance. But unfortunately, the movie suffers from how it delivers its story. Unbroken is too academic, thereby the emotions feel like a letdown. Overall, it has some strong parts especially thanks to the characters but at the end it's not enough to save the screenplay as the whole package delivers nothing more.

    Blue Is the Warmest Color

    ★★★★★

    A coming of age movie that is so overwhelming, heartbreaking and so real. Everything was true and honest. The performance of Adèle Exarchopoulos is perfect.
    This movie has been shot in my city (Lille, France) so it gives such a weird feeling when you come out of the theater because it's like the movie is still going on in your own life.
    Kechiche made a wonderful job on the cinematography as well. The close-ups are beautiful, and it never felt…

  • Texas Chainsaw 3D

    Texas Chainsaw 3D

    ★½

    Very far from the quality of Tobe Hooper's masterpiece, but also definitely not as good as Nipsel's remake.
    Texas Chainsaw 3D is just an opportunity for Hollywood to make an icon of horror 3D money.
    The story is not even coherent with the myth of leatherface. It's just boring and no fun.
