  • The Amazing Spider-Man

    The Amazing Spider-Man

    ★★★½

    A pretty good reboot with very honest plans. The only real issue with this movie is that the plot is too introducing and at the end we definitely want to see more.
    Overall, great acting, I think Andrew Garfield plays a different but very moving Peter Parker. Emma Stone is really sweet as Gwen Stacy.
    All the action is very well packed even though I wish the lizard would have been a bit more threatening.
    Some very good points for this movie, I cannot wait for part two!

  • The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

    The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

    ★★★★

    Really impressed by this second movie. I loved the first Hunger Games movie, I loved all three books of Suzanne Collins.
    This one, maybe I was expecting the most because it's certainly my favorite book of the trilogy. And it does not disappoint.
    At the end, I couldn't believe it was already over. The pace is really good as the movie is very well structured. Francis Lawrence succeeds at capturing all the feelings I've got during my reading and that…

  • 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.

  • Blue Is the Warmest Color

    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…
