Silence (2016)



Release date (U.S.) : 23 December 2016

directed by : Martin Scorsese

with : Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson

plot : In the 17th century two Jesuit priests face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor and to spread the gospel of Christianity.

Why do I want to see this ?
It used to be one of my top priorities back in 2012-2013 but, Scorsese, since the 90's, has said he will make this movie but it has been pushed back ever since so I'm rather cautious about this project.

My verdict :
Since I'm a huge of fan of Martin Scorsese, of course, I was really eager to check this flick but there were a couple of things that worried me about this project. On top of that, it wasn't exactly a huge critical success when it was released so, to be honest, I had lowered my expectations and I thought it might turn out to be a minor effort for this great master. Well, even though it was definitely one of his least accessible movies, the damned thing was actually quite spellbinding to behold. The fact that I have always been fascinated by the subject of religion certainly did help and I thought that this movie was a really interesting study on faith and on how, at the same time, it can be completely misguided but also really inspiring.

Gods of Egypt (2016)



Release date (U.S.) : 12 February 2016

directed by : Alex Proyas

with : Gerard Butler, Geoffrey Rush

plot : A common thief joins a mythical god on a quest through Egypt.

Why do I want to see this ?
I'm actually rather cautious about this flick... Indeed, I used to have two other projects from Alex Proyas on this list and they were both dropped so I'm wondering if he will manage to make this one. Still, he remains an intriguing director and it sounds like a cool movie.

My verdict :
Even though this movie was one of my highest priorities for 2016, it turned out to be a huge commercial and critical failure but I still wanted to check it out since I'm a big fan of Alex Proyas. Unfortunately, this movie turned out be indeed a massive disappointment. I mean, the whole thing looked really neat but, unfortunately, pretty much nothing else really worked in this movie. Indeed, the whitewashed cast was rather weak and the story was really disappointing.

Arrival (2016)



Release date (U.S.) : 11 November 2016

directed by : Denis Villeneuve

with : Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams, Forest Whitaker

plot : Taking place after alien crafts land around the world, an expert linguist is recruited by the military to determine whether they come in peace or are a threat.

Why do I want to see this ?
Right now, Denis Villeneuve is one the most exciting directors at work nowadays and it will be great to see him tackle some SF before directing the long awaited sequel for 'Blade Runner'.

My verdict :
Right now, according to IMDb, this is the best movie released in 2016 so you can't argue that I did not try to show the best movie possible to my filmclub. It's just a shame that it didn't turn out to be really amazing. I mean, I thought it was visually really neat, Amy Adams gave a solid performance and I really loved the fact that they put the focus on language and the difficulty and the importance to be able to communicate with a possible Alien life form. As a result, it was probably one of the most minimalistic Science-Fiction features I have seen but it wasn't a bad thing, in the contrary. Unfortunately I'm familiar with this old gimmick of creating an ominous mood and keeping the audience for as long as possible in the dark but, at some point, they have to deliver an explanation and such movies very rarely manage to end up in a satisfactory manner. In this case, it was not bad but I thought that, when this first encounter should have been a worldwide historical event, its impact was reduced to one single human being.

Release date (U.S.) : 20 October 2016 (Netherlands)

directed by : Jean-Pierre & Luc Dardenne

with : Jérémie Renier, Olivier Gourmet

plot : A doctor attempts to uncover the identity of a patient who died after she refused her treatment.

Why do I want to see this ?
By now, I have seen pretty much all those movies directed by the Dardenne brothers (I'm still missing 'Deux jours, une nuit' though). They are some of the best directors at work nowadays so I will definitely check their last directing effort.

My verdict :
At first, I was actually positively surprised by the damned thing. Indeed, it was a really neat mix between a standard thriller and the typical sober and hyper-realistic directing style of the Dardenne Brothers. On top of that, the brothers once again discovered another promising actress and Adèle Haenel gave here a really strong performance. So, for a good while, I thought it could turn out to be a really nice surprise but, unfortunately, the end-result still didn’t really convince me. The first thing that bothered me was the fact that the main character didn’t go to the police at some point after gathering so much information. However, the ending turned out to be a bigger problem though. Basically, like any other average mystery thriller, the Dardennes brother didn’t really manage to give this story an interesting conclusion which was too bad.

Hail, Caesar! (2016)



Release date (U.S.) : 5 February 2016

directed by : Ethan Coen, Joel Coen

with : Scarlett Johansson, George Clooney, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Ralph Fiennes, Josh Brolin, Tilda Swinton

plot : A Hollywood fixer in the 1950s works to keep the studio's stars in line.

Why do I want to see this ?
Obviously, any movie made by the Coen brothers is a big event and since I have seen all their movies, I will definitely watch this one at some point.

My verdict :
Well, to be honest, it wasn't really good. In fact, it was pretty much one of the Coen brothers's weakest efforts so far, I'm afraid. I mean, the whole thing looked fine and they had once again a really impressive cast at their disposal but this story was just rather boring. As a matter of fact, the plot was in fact really similar to the one they used for 'The Big Lebowski' as it was dealing with some rather pathetic kidnapping attempt and, in the process, they tried to throw at us all kinds of supposedly quirky and funny characters. Unfortunately, while 'The Big Lebowski' was just quite hilarious, this tale was on the other hand barely entertaining.

Release date (U.S.) : 11 November 2016

directed by : Ang Lee

with : Vin Diesel, Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, Steve Martin, Chris Tucker

plot : An infantryman recounts the final hours before he and his fellow soldiers return to Iraq.

Why do I want to see this ?
I'm not sure about the title and the cast but Ang Lee is definitely one of the best directors alive and all his movies are worth a look in my book.

My verdict :
Following the masssive critical and commercial success of ‘Life of Pi’, many, including myself, were expecting a lot from Ang Lee’s next directing effort. This time, he was going for something even more experimental, a movie shot with 120 frame rate, the highest frame rate ever used in a movie. Well, eventually, I thought it was rather difficult to judge this movie. First of all, I have to admit it, I didn’t manage to watch this movie in its intented version, I actually saw it at home on a regular TV so the whole technical aspect was lost on me, I’m afraid. On the other hand, I’m not sure if this story really needed such a high-tech treatment. Eventually, except for the half-time show which must have been interesting in this format, the rest of the movie was above all about the characters in some conversations involving usually 2 or 3 people and I don’t see how this format could have been an improvement. Anyway, as pointed out by many other viewers, the biggest issue with this movie was above all that the story was nothing really amazing.

Elle (2016)



Release date (U.S.) : 2 June 2016 (Netherlands)

directed by : Paul Verhoeven

with : Isabelle Huppert, Charles Berling

plot : When Michelle, the CEO of a gaming software company, is attacked in her home by an unknown assailant, she refuses to let it alter her precisely ordered life.

Why do I want to see this ?
Wow! Seriously, this movie came really from nowhere. I mean, for 10 years, I have been wondering if Paul Verhoeven will ever direct another movie and, suddenly, I found out he had a new project which was already in post-production! Anyway, it sounds quite intriguing and I will definitely check it out.

My verdict :
Obviously, the critics won't miss the fact that that it was rather misogynist as the women seem to almost enjoy to be brutalized to the point that they might even fall in love with the perpetrator but Verhoeven has never been a subtle director in this area. Eventually, what won me over was this fascinating main character, perfectly played by Isabelle Huppert who is still one of the best French actresses. Indeed, during the whole thing, you are never sure if you should despise this manipulative ice queen bitch or admire this attractive incredibly sharp woman.

Live by Night (2016)



Release date (U.S.) : 13 January 2017

directed by : Ben Affleck

with : Ben Affleck, Zoe Saldana, Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller

plot : A story set in the Prohibition Era and centered around a group of individuals and their dealings in the world of organized crime.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, it seems that Ben Affleck will be stuck playing Batman for the next 4 years at least (he might even direct the next stand-alone Batman feature as well) so I wouldn't be surprised if he would push back or even completely cancel this movie. It looks pretty cool though.

My verdict :
Well, after 3 really solid directing efforts, it seems that Ben Affleck unfortunately managed to slightly ruin his impressive track-record as a director. I mean, the whole thing was watchable and it looked really good but it still never really worked, I'm afraid. The first mistake he made was to cast himself as the lead. I mean, it did work with 'The Town' and 'Argo' but, in this movie, it felt like a big egotrip to have the guy directing himself as a very clever and sometimes even almighty gangster. Anyway, even with another actor, I'm still not sure if I would have really cared about the damned thing. Indeed, eventually , the biggest problem was the story was nothing really interesting or entertaining, maybe it was too long or too slow but, within the first 5 minutes, I was already losing my interest in the damned thing.

Even though James Gray never really fulfilled the great expectations I had for him, I still want to follow his work and this movie is definitely his most ambitious so far.

Snowden (2016)


Release date (U.S.) : 16 September 2016

directed by : Oliver Stone

with : Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley, Zachary Quinto

plot : CIA employee Edward Snowden leaks thousands of classified documents to the press.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, even though I know who is Edward Snowden, I didn't really follow this affair but still, a political thriller directed by Oliver Stone and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the lead, that could be pretty awesome, even though it has been a couple of decades since Stone has released anything really amazing.

My verdict :
Not so long ago, I already watched 'Citizenfour' and I thought it would be pretty neat to see also this dramatized version directed by Oliver Stone. Furthermore, even though Edward Snowden said that his quest was not about him, by getting a movie named after him and about his life, it shows how much the guy has become worldwide famous in the process. Anyway, it was pretty neat to see this movie after the documentary as it gave some interesting background about Snowden himself and what he went through. It was also interesting to see the notorious tools used by the NSA and the CIA actually in action.

The Last Face (2016)



Release date (U.S.) : ??? 2016

plot : A director (Charlize Theron) of an international aid agency in Africa meets a relief aid doctor (Javier Bardem) amidst a political/social revolution, and together face tough choices surrounding humanitarianism and life through civil unrest.

Why do I want to see this ?
At last, Sean Penn is coming back with a new directing effort. To be honest, I'm not sure I'm completely excited by this one. Indeed, it has been already 8 years since he made 'Into the Wild'. On the other hand, his track-record as a director is pretty solid so I will definitely check this one out.

Release date (U.S.) : 21 September 2016 (France)

directed by : Xavier Dolan

with : Léa Seydoux, Marion Cotillard, Vincent Cassel, Gaspard Ulliel, Nathalie Baye

plot : Louis (Gaspard Ulliel), a terminally ill writer, returns home after a long absence to tell his family that he is dying.

Why do I want to see this ?
Right now, I'm watching all the movies directed by Xavier Dolan and I have been really impressed. This time, he is going to work with a top French cast and I will definitely check this movie.

My verdict :
Well, eventually, this movie really did hit me like a truck. Indeed, my own life was just so similar to what was going on with the main character, it was just uncanny. Basically, more than 12 years ago, I left France to go living in the Netherlands where my father was born and raised and I usually go only once a year back to France to see my parent, my brother and my sister so I pretty much knew what the guy was going through. Indeed, from the moment Louis gets inside, all hell breaks loose, you understand right away why the guy decided to take off without looking back and this situation was just so damned recognizable. I can understand that many viewers would find these characters borderline unwatchable, especially Antoine played by Vincent Cassel at the top of his game but, in my opinion, it was one of the best depictions of a dysfunctional familly I have ever seen.

So far, I have seen most of the movies directed by Jim Jarmusch, he is still one of the best independent directors in the US and I will definitely check his latest directing effort, especially since I really liked his last movie 'Only Lovers Left Alive'.

Release date (U.S.) : 30 September 2016

directed by : Tim Burton

with : Eva Green, Samuel L. Jackson, Asa Butterfield, Judi Dench, Rupert Everett, Terence Stamp

plot : Teenager Jacob follows clues that take him to a mysterious island, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores the abandoned bedrooms and hallways, he discovers that its former occupants were far more than peculiar; they possessed incredible powers.

Why do I want to see this ?
In the good old days, this movie would have been a major priority but Tim Burton's career has been rather disappointing lately (even the promising 'Big Eyes' didn't make much waves after all). Still, who knows? Maybe he will finally come back with something really impressive this time.

My verdict :
Apparently, this time, Burton went for a YA novel adaptation which was not really a good idea since the genre has been milked-dry by now. Furthermore, they used the same terrible gimmick they used in so many other YA novels like ‘Harry Potter’, ‘Percy Jackson’ or ‘Narnia’ which is to make the character start in our world and then to bring him later on in some fantasy world. Even though it might be fine in a book, it almost never work with a movie because it takes forever for the story to finally get started. In this case, it was pretty terrible. I mean, I think it took the guy about one hour to get to this school/orphanage but, even when he got there, the story still didn’t really take off. Eventually, in spite of its flaws, the whole thing looked pretty neat so I guess it is still worth a look but it was definitely one of the weakest movies delivered by Tim Burton so far.

Sully (2016)



Release date (U.S.) : 9 September 2016

directed by : Clint Eastwood

with : Tom Hanks, Laura Linney, Aaron Eckhart

plot : The story of American pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who heroically landed a troubled aircraft full of passengers on the Hudson River

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I wasn't really impressed by 'American Sniper' and 'J. Edgar' and this movie would be the 3rd biopic in a row directed by Eastwood. He managed to make also 'Jersey Boys' in between but all these movies turned out to be rather underwhelming so I'm not so excited this time. Still, with this director, it is always worth a look.

My verdict :
Since Eastwood had a big box-office success with ‘American Sniper’, he decided to once again tell the story of another American hero. Well, even though ‘American Sniper’ was quite popular, to be honest, I actually didn’t care much for this movie and I thought that this story was actually much more interesting. Still, I didn’t really like the approach they chose to tell this true story. Basically, the tricky thing was that the crash and the rescue altogether didn’t even take an hour so they had to add some stuff to reach a decent running time (eventually, it was still only 96 mins and the shortest film directed by Eastwood). Eventually, they tried to focus on the fact that Sully was, at first, blamed by the NTSB of reckless flying but, even though it might have been true, it didn’t result in something really interesting. Indeed, what the guy did was just simply amazing, he saved everyone for crying out loud and it felt like a waste of time to spend so much time on the NTSB arguing otherwise.

Hacksaw Ridge (2016)



Release date (U.S.) : 4 November 2016

directed by : Mel Gibson

with : Vince Vaughn, Andrew Garfield, Sam Worthington

plot : WWII American Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, who served during the Battle of Okinawa, refuses to kill people and becomes the first Conscientious Objector in American history to win the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Why do I want to see this ?
Mel Gibson must have one of the worst reputations in Hollywood nowadays but I thought that 'Apocalypto' was one of the underrated movies in the last 10 years and I sure wonder what Gibson will do next.

My verdict :
Before watching the damned thing, I didn't watch a trailer and I didn't even read a synopsis so, at first, I thought it would be another rather straightforward tale of a young man going to war like so many others I have seen before. Obviously, it was really pleased that, for once, it was actually dealing with a medic, a guy who refused to even hold a rifle. Indeed, we never talk about them but those guys are just crucial in a battle and most of them are just heroes, even maybe more than all these soldiers trying to kill as many enemies as possible. For Andrew Garfield, 2016 was quite a banner year after his already impressive performance in 'Silence'.

Release date (U.S.) : 22 April 2016

directed by : Tom Tykwer

with : Tom Hanks, Ben Whishaw

plot : A failed American businessman looks to recoup his losses by traveling to Saudi Arabia and selling his idea to a wealthy monarch.

Why do I want to see this ?
For some reasons, the title doesn't really appeal to me and I have never been a huge fan of Tom Hanks, to be honest. On the other hand, I always had a weak spot for Tom Tykwer's work and I'm intrigued to see him working with such a huge American star (again, since they already worked together for 'Cloud Atlas').

My verdict :
Basically, the whole set-up was about an American businessman pretty much wasting his time (and ours) in Saudi Arabia looking for the King himself so he can do his sales pitch and, even though it was supposed to be really funny, I guess, it wasn't really interesting or entertaining after all. Furthermore, in the 3rd act, out of nowhere, the whole thing became somehow some kind of far-fetched romantic-comedy as the main character falls in love with pretty much the only Saudi Arabian woman he met through his whole trip. I think there must have been a decent story to tell hidden there somewhere but I just had a hard time to care about the damned thing.

Marc Forster is another director who had an impressive track-record but it all stopped with 'Quantum of Solace' and ever since he delivered only some rather underwhelming features.

with : Rebecca Hall, Bill Hader, Jemaine Clement

plot : The tale of a young girl, the Queen of England and a benevolent giant known as the BFG, who set out on an adventure to capture the evil, man-eating giants who have been invading the human world.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, except for 'The Fantastic Mr Fox', I usually didn't care much about Roald Dahl's book adaptation but since this one is directed by Steven Spielberg, I will definitely check it out.

My verdict :
Well, I didn’t care much about the damned thing, even less than ‘Bridge of Spies’. Basically, I thought it was in fact seriously boring. First of all, I have to admit it, I always had a hard time with Roald Dahl’s work and, except for a few stories he made like ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’ or ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, all his tales just really bored me and this movie was not different, I’m afraid. At least, the whole thing looked really neat and Spielberg definitely delivered some State-of-the-Art CGI. Indeed, those giants were quite amazing and Mark Rylance delivered once again a solid performance. Eventually, even though I thought it was seriously tedious, I guess it is still worth a look, especially if you like the genre or if you are interested in Steven Spielberg’s work.

with : Johnny Depp, Natasha Lyonne, Genesis Rodriguez, Haley Joel Osment, Stan Lee, Adam Brody, Justin Long, Jason Mewes, Michael Parks

Why do I want to see this ?
What?!? Another totally weird movie directed by Kevin Smith and again starring Johnny Depp!?? I'm rather speechless... Like everything involving Kevin Smith (and, as matter of fact, the same thing goes for Johnny Depp), it sounds pretty awesome on paper but the end-result could be pretty underwhelming so I will watch this one with caution.

My verdict :
Well, it turned out to be pretty terrible and I'm not surprised that it is, according to the IMDB ratings, the worst movie delivered by Kevin Smith so far. I mean, I already had a hard time to care for 'Tusk' but this was even weaker. It's too bad because the beginning with these 2 bored teenage girls working in a convenient store, pretty much like in 'Clerks', was actually quite promising. Unfortunately, pretty much everything else was just some garbage. Seriously, it is rather difficult to understand what Kevin Smith is getting at with his Canadian horror trilogy. Indeed, it seems that it was conceived mostly to please the fans of his podcast but I'm not sure that the rest of the world really cares.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this flick, especially after it turned out to be a flop at the box-office. Anyway, even though it turned out to be watchable, it was pretty weak though. Indeed, first of all, it started with a really over-the-top action scene with Alice as a ship captain. I mean, seriously?!? Then, from this introduction, they had to get her back to Wonderland somehow so, completely at random, she went there with some mirror and this transition was just seriously awkward. Finally, in Wonderland, they decided to get her involved in some kind of 'Back to the Future' tale which was barely entertaining with a lot of bad jokes about time.

plot : Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard, a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

Why do I want to see this ?
I'm a huge fan of Blade Runner and I think is the best SF flick ever made. Do I need to say more? It is going to be awesome!!! Apparently, it won't be directed by Ridley Scott after all but by Denis Villeneuve which could be eventually a blessing considering both directors recent track-records. Anyway, hopefully, it will be a little better than 'Prometheus' which was fine but not the masterpiece I was hoping for.

Release date (U.S.) : ??? May 2017

directed by : Roman Polanski

with : Eva Green, Emmanuelle Seigner, Vincent Perez

plot : A writer goes through a tough period after the release of his latest book, as he gets involved with an admirer.

Of course, since I'm a huge fan of Roman Polanski, I would watch pretty much anything directed by this guy and this one could turn out to be another spellbinding thriller like 'The Ghost Writer'. Can't wait to see it.

Song To Song (2017)



Release date (U.S.) : 17 March 2017

directed by : Terrence Malick

with : Rooney Mara, Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Val Kilmer, Michael Fassbender, Holly Hunter

plot : Two intersecting love triangles. Obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, Texas.

Why do I want to see this ?
What the f*ck is this movie?!? I have honestly no idea but since Terrence Malick is directing, I'm definitely intrigued. Plus, the cast is quite awesome, You have to admit it. Still, it is rather funny and typical of Malick that, even though they shot all the scenes back in 2011 and yet, they kept pushing its release over and over again.

Release date (U.S.) : 31 March 2017

directed by : Danny Boyle

with : Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner

plot : After 20 years abroad, Mark Renton returns to Scotland and reunites with his old friends Sick Boy, Spud, and Begbie.

Why do I want to see this ?
On paper, this sounds really great, especially if they manage to have this cast with this director. I mean, after 20 long years, Ewan McGregor might finally work again with the director that launched his career, how awesome is that? Still, I can't help thinking that it might not happen after all or that it would turn out to be rather underwhelming after all. Anyway, we'll see.

My verdict :
Eventually, did we really need this sequel? Probably not but was it a bad movie? Certainly not either. Indeed, what made this movie still work was the fact that Danny Boyle was involved and the original cast as well. It was especially really neat to see Ewan McGregor finally working again with this director after 20 long years but the rest of the cast was fine as well. I also enjoyed the fact that they didn't give all these characters some average middle-class lifes with wife, kids and a decent job. So, the set-up was pretty good but I'm afraid the makers still struggled to give these characters something interesting to do. Indeed, the whole thing was pretty random and they were several attempts to get them involved in some various sub-plots but they were all rather all-baked. Anyway, in spite of its flaws, it was still a decent watch.

The Snowman (2017)



Release date (U.S.) : 13 October 2017

directed by : Tomas Alfredson

with : Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, J.K. Simmons, Val Kilmer, Chloë Sevigny, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Toby Jones

plot : Detective Harry Hole investigates the disappearance of a woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around an ominous-looking snowman.

Why do I want to see this ?
'The Snowman' was the 2nd book I read about Harry Hole and, even though it was not as good as 'Phantom', it was still pretty neat. On top of that, there is a very good director and a top cast involved so I'm definitely excited about this movie.

Radegund (2017)
Release date (U.S.) : ??? 2017

plot : The Austrian Franz Jägerstätter, a conscientious objector, refuses to fight for the Nazis in World War II and is executed by them in 1943.

Why do I want to see this ?
Even though Malick has still 2 movies to be released (hopefully in 2016), he has apparently already been planning his next directing effort. To be honest, I thought that his last 2 movies ('To the Wonder' and 'Knight of Cups') were both really disappointing but he remains a fascinating director so I will definitely check this movie as well.

plot : A social satire in which a guy realizes he would have a better life if he were to shrink himself.

Release date (U.S.) : 21 July 2017

plot : Time-traveling agent Valerian is sent to investigate a galactic empire, along with his partner Laureline.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I always had a hard time with Luc Besson. Indeed, as a producer, he has released some major commercial garbage for the last 20 years later and it has been ages since he has directed anything really impressive. Still, this one does sound awesome though. On top of that, I really wonder what Besson would do with another massive science-fiction feature almost 20 years after 'The Fifth Element' which was pretty neast, at least, visually.

Release date (U.S.) : 19 May 2017

directed by : Ridley Scott

with : Katherine Waterston, James Franco, Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce, Billy Crudup, Carmen Ejogo, Danny McBride

plot : The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I have seriously my doubts about this one... Indeed, 'Prometheus' was, before its release, one of the most exciting movies coming up in 2012 but, then, it turned out to be just decent but nothing really impressive after all. Personally, since the end-result was rather underwhelming, I didn't even expect them to come up with a sequel at all. The fact that they changed the title from 'Prometheus 2' to 'Alien: Covenant' gives me even more the feeling that they actually have no idea about what they are actually doing with this material. Anyway, we'll see...

My verdict :
Even though I wasn't really expecting a masterpiece, at least, I hoped this movie would be an improvement on 'Prometheus'. Unfortunately, I turned out to be even more underwhelming and I would go as far as saying that it is the weakest installment in this franchise (of course, without counting the 'Alien vs Predator' crap). Indeed, if one of the biggest issues with 'Prometheus' was probably the fact that it was too ambitious, this time, it was the other way around as Ridley Scott didn't even really try. Seriously, the guy came up with the most generic plot you could think of and pretty much all the new ideas introduced in the previous movie were basically thrown out of the window and the only thing that remained was the fact that David was apparently a really psychotic and megalomaniac robot.

plot : A drama about a family set in Calais with the European refugee crisis as the backdrop.

Again, Haneke is coming back with yet another French production. His last movie 'Amour' was just amazing so I have some great expectations for this one as well. On top of it, the theme is a really topical and sound really interesting.

Logan Lucky (2017)



Release date (U.S.) : 18 August 2017

directed by : Steven Soderbergh

with : Riley Keough, Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Katherine Heigl, Seth MacFarlane

plot : Two brothers attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina.

Why do I want to see this ?
I have some mixed feelings about this one. Indeed, on one hand, it is really nice that Soderbergh has decided to make a come-back from his self-inflected retirement but, on the other hand, it is rather lame to announce that you retire from film directing and then, only a couple of years later, to change your mind about the damned thing. Concerning the cast, half of it is really neat (Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, Adam Driver) but the rest is rather lame (Katherine Heigl, Seth MacFarlane). Anyway, we'll see.

plot : Plot kept under wraps. Described as love story set in the United States during the early years of the Cold War.

Why do I want to see this ?
To be honest, I was actually rather disappointed by both 'Crimson Peak' and 'Pacific Rim' and even 'Hellboy II' was rather overrated in my opinion. So, with this in mind, I have my doubts about this project but, who knows, maybe del Toro will blow me away this time?

To be honest, I'm really dying to see yet another historical drama directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks. Indeed, 'Bridge of Spies' was definitely one of the most overrated movies released in 2015. Still, any movie directed by Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep must be worth a look.

I used to be a die-hard fan of Andrew Niccol but since his last 3 movies ('In Time', 'The Host', 'Good Kill') were all terribly disappointing, I'm not so enthusiast about this director anymore. Still, the plot sounds intriguing and he might make a massive come-back here. I doubt it though.

On paper, this sounds like an amazing movie. I mean, a movie directed by Martin Scorsese and starring such actors like Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel sounds like a sure masterpiece and it would have been the case if they would have been made 20 or even 30 years ago but, nowadays, De Niro's and Pacino's body of work have become terribly underwhelming but, still, to see Scorsese and De Niro working together 20 years after 'Casino' is pretty awesome.

I'm looking forward to The Social Network A) as someone who grew up during the rise of the internet and B) For Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor's score.
Posted: 6 years, 7 months ago at Nov 18 12:44
I'm with ya on a number of these, particularly "Fair Game", "127 Hours", "The Tourist", the Hobbit flicks, and of course, the Alien prequel. I did see 'Hereafter' last week...

Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait! Trent Reznor did the score for 'The Social Network'?!! Okay, NOW is want to see it.

I didn't care for the Social Network, but it wasn't my kind of film.

The Black Swan I thought I would like, but it didn't stand out to me.

Fair Game ... There are a lot of atrocities committed by governments, this one wasn't worth wasting film on.

127 Hours: I liked this movie, but it was a bit long.

True Grit: Everyone thought no one could top John Wayne, but you didn't have too. The acting was great and the directing was better than the original.

I want to see the In Time too. I also want to see the 127 hours, because I love movies based on true stories. Great list!
