This is Cinema (92 movies items)

"Es una comedia bastante buena con personajes entrañables, pero que reflexiona sobre un sentimiento en particular: el miedo. Combinar el cine de terror de serie B y el ambiente de guerra fría latente en los 60, da la excusa perfecta para poder mostrar lo que les pasa a los espectadores tanto del cine como de la guerra. Es ligera, pero creo que es el tono correcto para un mensaje que valora el miedo como un sentimiento humano más."

BradWesley123’s Movie Journal- May 2021 (35 movies items)

" Starz- 1hr. 38min. First Viewing I should like Matinee more than I do. It's a nostalgic look at 60s b-horror movies, with the added innocence of young leads. There's a love and care that's gone into capturing the magic of cinema, what it means to moviegoers (particularly younger ones) and it's importance in our society (and, in the more humorous passages of the film, it's more outlandish impact). If Matinee had simply focused on those aspects, of the art of filmmaking and those making it (Goodm"

"First viewing - Nov. 18th This month I signed up for Disney+ and when I did I was offered three months of Starz for $5 a month. I took it and found plenty of films that I've been wanting to see, and thus it'll deliver most of what I watch from here on out this month. I vaguely recall Matinee being released in the '90s, but for whatever reason it wasn't something I cared about watching. Now that I've finally seen it, it's fair to conclude that back then I would not have appreciated it as much a"

"20.7. (FYEO) Samoilla linjoilla mennään. Dante tuntee hyvin nuoruutensa elokuvat, joissa William Castlella oli suuri merkitys. Tämä on jollain tapaa omaelämänkerta, joka floppasi pahasti. Ymmärrän sen hyvin, vaikka kyseessä on hyvä pätkä."
