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

The thing about films you already love in advance is that, even though you try hard not to be biased, your credibility as a movie critic crumbles from the first line. Continue reading

Film Review: Love, Rosie

Love Rosie_Day 01_0113.cr2

You can’t take things for granted. You might be lucky enough to get a second chance in life to do something, but even then, you have to grab it or it will go away. That is the lesson you learn with Love, Rosie, the film based on Cecelia Ahern’s novel Where Rainbows End. Continue reading

I Watched 1990’s Captain America for You

Things don’t always tend to work out the very first time. You need to revisit something, see what works and what doesn’t and improve it until you finally learn from your mistakes and make a masterpiece starring Chris Evans. Luckily, those previous attempts fall into oblivion, because nobody wants to remember them. Continue reading

Film Review: Avengers Age of Ultron

avengers-age-of-ultron-screenshotThe problem of having great expectations for a highly-anticipated film is that, eventually, you get to see it and it disappoints you, because it’s completely impossible for it to live up to your own, unrealistic expectations. But then again, have you heard that saying “the exception proves the rule”? Because that is exactly the case with Age of Ultron, a movie that I have been looking forward since 2012 and, oh my: IT. WAS. SO. GOOD. Continue reading

Film Review: Selma

selma-bridgeIt tends to be a problem whenever a film is regarded as better than it actually is. You can have a movie that offers a great performance from its leading actor (Black Swan, for instance), but that doesn’t mean the film itself is good –in fact, most times the movie is only praised because of that performance, but that’s it. Had not the actor been so good, the film would have gone unnoticed. Continue reading
