The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (2004) it's the greatest movie of all time.
Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)
It was amazing... Until the last 30 minutes
Solo: A Star Wars story is a really fun movie, it actually surprised me. The acting is great by almost everyone, because excluding Emilia Clarke, Alden is surprisingly great as Han, Glover is great as Lando, Harrelson is great as Beckett, etc. The visuals are stunning as usual with Star Wars and overall it's a fun, full of action ride of a movie. BUT it could have been perfect or really great if the movie ended differently or at least the last minutes would have cared more of giving the movie a nice clousure than dropping the cards for a potential sequel or continuation as they did.
SPOILERS. Because at the end is like they just needed to get rid of some of the characters and they dont handled that good at all. And, yes, the whole 'Darth Maul' thing and the (somehow) "surprising" decision by the Emilia Clarke character is really, really, really awful, lazy and super unnecessary, even incoherent. Probably the worst 'fan-service' cameo I have ever seen. Also the way they handled Enfys Nest at the end is kind of disappointing. That 'western' type scene we have seen on the trailers, that scene should have been the climax, a big shootout or something. But no, "Lets give more screen time to the Game of Thrones girl that can't act and lets put an unnecessary cameo that half of the audience is not going to understand, right?". At least the whole Han and Beckett, 'father and son' thing ended in a good note on a scene that actually meant something for them and in consequence it add more development to the actual protagonist of this film and obviously, one of the most important characters of the whole Star Wars Saga: Han Solo. END OF SPOILERS.
And, yes, as you can read, idk how to feel about Solo yet. I feel like the movie should have only 2 halfs and not 3 acts. I definitely need to watch it again.
But after all I would recommend it anyways. A really fun movie if you kind of don't care much about the ending. 7/10 (It may change to and 8 or even go down to a 6, idk. But really, no least or more than those numbers.)
The End of the F***ing World (2017)
Natural Born Killers written by Daniel Clowes and Directed by Terry Zwigoff or Wes Anderson
It's a more contemporary and youthful take on all those violent yet romantic road movies like 'Natural born killers' and 'Bonnie and Clyde' but also IMO the show take a lot of things from indie comic books (as the one the whole show it's based of, of course) like 'Ghost World' (And in consequence the Terry Zwigoff film) or actually any other Daniel Clowes comic book and if you're not much into comic books it may remind you the style of the Wes Anderson films, especially 'Moonrise Kindgdom' just that a little more violent and foul-mouthed.
Binged all episodes and I think is the best way to watch it (Or maybe with a little pause just in the middle after ep. 4) And I can say it's good, surprisingly good actually.
The music is amazing, the acting is good, it have some beautiful shots, some really well done gory moments and overall the execution of the almost surreal yet not really fresh concept it's amazing: The editing, the use of the music and somehow stunning cinematography make this dark comedy TV show much more than a simple funny TV show.
A little gem of british television that is certainly not only for teenagers but certainly much more enjoyable and relatable if you're one. Recommended. 8/10
I finish Mindhunter a few days ago and i'm still dazed by how amazing it was (And also, completely obsessed with THAT Led Zepellin song).
David Fincher's new series it's an amazing exercise on screen writing, character development and style.
Mindhunter may be talking about the most disturbing crimes and as a whole it's really psychologically unnerving but it feels great because it's so gorgeously shot and well directed that you doesn't even care. Also, Mindhunter explore and examine this whole serial- killer culture that is so popular in US but care and trust so much about writing that does that (almost) without violence, not even a punch is seen in the whole series after THAT scene on the first minutes of ep. 1, and well, that's nothing but remarkable.
And if you're afraid if the show it's slow, let me tell you that the show it's actually very slow, but if you didn't fall in love with the show after that amazing montage of our protagonists traveling at the sound of "Fly like an eagle" and under Fincher's wonderful direction, you probably shouldn't keep watching it.
As a summary I can say that Fincher and the whole team of writers and directors created a ten-episode season of pure tension and 'psychopath after psychopath' they deliver every single episode with a lot of style, great music choices, great acting and overall: Great filmmaking.
I can't wait for the 2nd season. Recommended. 9/10
