Notes: Well, after 'American Sniper' and 'Sully', Eastwood decided for the 3rd time in a row to tell another true tale about some other American heroes but, unfortunately, it turned out to be so terribly weak and not much better than the garbage you can see on the Lifetime channel. I mean, the first scenes dealing with the main characters when they were kids were not bad but they still didn't reach the level of something like 'Stand by Me'. Then, the actual guys who were involved during these events actually played themselves which wasn't a bad idea and I don't think they did such a terribly bad job but the whole thing started to become rather abysmal at this point. Basically, they gave us a whole bunch of meaningless scenes with no entertaining or informative value and it seems, since the tragic event in the train would last only 15 mins, that they had to fill in the running time with something. The worst part was definitely when these guys went backpacking in Europe. Seriously, it felt like watching 'The Real World' from MTV or some other crappy reality TV program. At least, the scenes in the train did work but everything else was just so tedious and rather poorly put together.

Notes: In 2018, Netflix pulled off with this movie the biggest marketing stunt of the year. Indeed, during the Super Bowl, they finally released the first trailer but, above all, they announced that the movie would be directly available after the game which was something obviously never done before. Seriously, it was a genius move because it turned a rather weak feature into one of the most talked about movies over the year. Unfortunately, the day after this marketing stunt, pretty much everyone was universally complaining how lame this flick actually was and, indeed, it turned out to be pretty weak. I mean, they had the best cast ever seen in a Cloverfield feature (Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Oyelowo, Daniel Brühl, Ziyi Zhang, Elizabeth Debicki) and the concept actually had some potential if it would have been properly developed. Basically, even though it could have been a thought provoking SF flick, it was just very lazily written giving us a succession of rather generic supposedly scary scenes. Some of them were not bad (like the one when they discover Elizabeth Debicki's character) but there was not one moment when any of the character said and did anything remotely interesting regarding the events they had to face. It was also really weak to add some crazy conspiracy theorist predicting exactly what would happen later on. At least, with 'Cloverfield' and '10 Cloverfield Lane', they left the viewers in the dark which was much more effective.

Notes: Unfortunately, I was amazed by how the underwhelming the damned thing turned out to be. Indeed, while 'Moon' was pretty much a flawless minimalistic science-fiction masterpiece, this movie was actually the opposite as it was seriously over ambitious and filled up with some poorly developed characters and a rather half-baked story with too much going on. Eventually, what bothered me the most were all these countless and pointless scenes. I mean, for example, at some point the main character had to go to the library searching for the Berlin yellow pages books so he could find a phone number. Seriously, it is the freaking future, why didn't he look it up on the Internet? Of course, you could argue that it was what an Amish would do but he already used a smartphone and other modern devices during the movie. Finally, it wasn't a strong story but I don't feel like going into details explaining why.

Notes: Well, to be honest, even though the previous installments starring Angelina Jolie have a rather lame reputation, at least, they were quite fun and while this movie took a (slightly) more realistic approach, it was only a minor improvement in my opinion. I mean, I don't blame Vikander who did what she could with the material and she was as usual quite convincing in a physically demanding role (apparently, she trained her ass off for this movie). Eventually, the biggest problem was the story itself. Indeed, it was really generic and, on top of that, they made a couple of mistakes. First of all, since it was an origin story, it made sense that Lara Croft wasn't yet an adventurous archeologist but, even at the end, she still didn't become one which was rather disappointing. To make things worse, she was never looking for an ancient artifact, which is supposed to be the whole point in this genre, but she was looking for her father and, as a result, it greatly undermined the impact that her 1st adventure was supposed to have.

Notes: Eventually, even though it was a decent watch, to be honest, it was only a slight improvement on 'Good Kill', 'The Host' and 'In Time'. Basically, while the concept was fairly interesting and extremely relevant today, it was nothing really groundbreaking and it seemed that it missed something to become really fascinating. Above all, a bigger issue was the fact that the whole thing was in fact rather boring. I mean, Amanda Seyfried, who was quite charming as usual, had a nice mysterious character but the main character played by Clive Owen was just not complex enough and a total bore to watch. Seriously, they had to go for the old gimmick of the divorced detective grieving for his dead child?!? That was just some really lazy writing, just like the fact that, in this mix of science-fiction with a film noire, this detective had to have sex with this femme fatale at some point. At least, the 3rd act wasn't completely lame but it still turned out to be pretty weak after all.

Notes: Well, to be honest, I actually had a rather hard time to really care for this flick. I mean, I always had a weak spot for Rupert Everett who was basically born to play this character and Oscar Wilde was one of the wittiest writers that ever lived so the whole thing definitely had some potential. In my opinion, the biggest mistake they made was to focus on the last years of Oscar Wilde's life and I still wonder why the makers thought they should focus on this specific time period. I mean, after William Shakespeare, Wilde must have been the most famous English writer that ever lived but, at the time, the guy had stopped to write and, instead, was basically drinking himself to death which was hardly entertaining to behold. In fact, instead of feeling sorry for Wilde, this movie had actually the reverse effect on me as I felt slightly mad at him because he could have lived in France with a low profile, trying to write some more but, apparently, he basically gave up and slowly killed himself which was obviously a huge waste.

Notes: Well, it is rather sad that such a movie is considered to be one of the ‘best’ original movies delivered by Netflix so far this year. It’s not that it was really weak like ‘Mute’, ‘Anon’ or ‘The Cloverfield Paradox’, it was actually a fairly decent romantic-comedy, the point is that it was still nothing really amazing whatsoever. Indeed, first of all, the whole concept was pretty weak but it’s apparently something inherent to the genre nowadays and I can’t remember the last time I saw a romantic-comedy without a seriously far-fetched idea. Then, it was rather disappointing that they gave such a negative view on being a personal assistant. By now, it has become such a boring cliché and it would be more interesting to show why so many people are doing this kind of job which seems more humiliating than really fulfilling. And, yet, the whole thing was still fairly entertaining mostly thanks to Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell. Indeed, they both gave some solid performances, they were both really charming and they had some great chemistry together. Seriously, if they would have dumped the whole set-up thing and just focused on these 2 characters falling in love, it could have been actually really good.

Notes: To be honest, I have to admit that it did turn out to be slightly better than I expected. Indeed, what bother me the most with the previous installment was it was just too similar to the first 'Jurassic Park' and this sequel was at least slightly more original. Still, even though the makers might claim that it was something completely new, I still had a feeling of 'déjà vu' as they used many ideas and elements of 'The Lost World: Jurassic Park' which is still by far the weakest installment in this franchise. Anyway, I still have to admit that the whole thing was really spectacular and the impressive evolution in CGI technology allowed the makers to provide even more awesome dinosaurs than ever before. Concerning Chris Pratt, the guy was once again really entertaining and, this time around, they tried to develop Bryce Dallas Howard's character which wasn't a bad idea but I can't remember that she was such a fan of the dinosaurs in the previous installment. Anyway, to conclude, even if it was nothing really amazing, it was still a decent blockbuster.

Notes: Even though I have never been a huge fan of this franchise, since I kept hearing some really positive things about this movie (some critics even called it the best action flick released during the last 10 years), I was really eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, I thought it was eventually a decent installment but not much more than that and, as far as I'm concerned, 'Ghost Protocol' remains by far their best movie. I mean, sure, it was still quite entertaining but it just never blew me away. First of all, even though it was just so easy to figure out who was actually John Larke, the rest of the story was actually pretty murky and, sometimes, I was actually having a rather hard time to really follow the plot. Then, I think it was also a mistake to bring back Julia and Ilsa. Indeed, ever since she has been introduced in 'Mission: Impossible III', Julia has always been such a boring character that they keep bringing back every time they need to mess up Ethan Hunt's mojo. Concerning Ilsa, the only reason she was involved was because Rebecca Ferguson was so good in the previous installment but, in fact, her character was not necessary at all and could and probably should have been removed. Still, I have to admit that it was a lot of fun. Indeed, the realistic stunts were just amazing, so much better than the CGI overdose you get in other modern blockbusters. Furthermore, as Tom Cruise is getting older, he is getting closer to who Ethan Hunt was supposed to be from the very beginning and Cruise gave maybe here his best performance so far in this franchise. I also want to mention that Henry Cavill was completely badass in this movie and he also gave one of his best performances.

Notes: I had to admit that I was slightly worried after my 11 year old daughter made me watch the trailer but, fortunately, it was still a decent watch. First of all, after 20 years of being the king of clay-motion, Nick Park still didn't lose his touch and the animation was again seriously impressive. Concerning the story, to be honest, it was nothing really groundbreaking but it was still entertaining enough. The main issue I had was that they barely dealt with the clash between the stone age and the bronze age. Indeed, I was rather intrigued to see how these cavemen would handle the discovery of their more evolved 'cousins'. Unfortunately, instead, they focused on some football game which was probably easier to swallow for the young kids but, as a result, the whole thing became seriously generic and predictable. At least, it was pretty neat how they made fun of England which obviously came up with the game of football and, yet, this country has been completely inept at winning any major title for decades.
