Film Review: Baywatch

I love it when films don’t take themselves too seriously. It allows them to fool around, to make jokes at their own expense, and to wink at us, the audience, so that we become part of the game. And that is exactly what happens with Baywatch, the movie. Continue reading

Film Review: Pirates of the Caribbean – Salazar’s Revenge

Two things before we begin: first, I consider Pirates of the Caribbean to be a trilogy, and anything else that has come afterwards is just unnecessary footage that I don’t even want to be bothered with; second, why do film titles have to be different in the UK? I have spent the last few months thinking this movie was called Dead Men Tell No Tales. Get your act together, Disney! Continue reading

Film Review: Lion

Few movies in my life I have branded as pieces of art. Normally it has to do with films that make me cry -okay, I cry with most films, but Lion certainly deserves a special place. Continue reading

Film Review: Now You See Me 2

now you see me 2 china

Never in my life would I have imagined that Now You See Me would be one of those movies that gets a sequel. Don’t get me wrong, I quite enjoyed it, but it had never crossed my mind that there would be a second story to it. Which is why I approached the sequel with skepticism. Continue reading

Film Review: The Nice Guys

TNG_Day_#34_12122014-131.dng

One of the key aspects to a film’s success, especially if said film is a comedy, is the chemistry between its main actors, and I think that is what makes The Nice Guys work. That and its ludicrous script. Continue reading

Film Review: Eddie the Eagle

eddie the eagle review

I hate it when people treat a ‘feel-good film’ as something that can’t be taken seriously. Granted, that’s sort of the way I went to watch Eddie the Eagle. But like Eddie himself, this movie is not fooling around, and it’s there to be taken seriously indeed. Continue reading

I have always been a fan of sequels that you don’t expect. You know, as opposed to those sequels that are already on pre-production before the first one has even been released. Continue reading

Film Review: The Big Short

the big short - carell gosling

I have never understood financial gibberish. Not because I’m stupid, but because I was never into maths or anything of the sort, so one would think that a film that spends its two hours talking about the stock market and mortgages wouldn’t be engaging from my point of view. Continue reading

Film Review: In the Heart of the Sea

IN THE HEART OF THE SEA

Here’s something I must confess about myself: I have an irrational fear of whales. It’s always been like that, I just can’t explain it (though I’ll blame Pinocchio for it). I have always been wary of sea creatures in general, but the thought of swimming underwater and suddenly come across a massive creature with weird teeth has always haunted me in my dreams. I know, how on Earth would I find a whale in Southeast Spain, where you can walk more than 2 km into the sea and the water is still knee-deep? Whatever, they creep me out. Continue reading
