prisoners | 2013

Probably this is one of the darkest movies I've ever seen since Mystic River. 
The story is excellent it keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting and waiting nervously the end of a story that when you think you know how it goes, changes... 

The fact that the film is located in Pensylvannia, in a place where it is always raining or snowing in the forest makes it better, because we're used to locate this movies in other places like big cities or if it is on a place like this to make it scary. But I think that the main goal with using this location was to be more dark and intrigating.

The struggle of a family and what would they do to save their children is perfectly shown. From being violent to try and distance yourself from the tragedy. 
It also shows what happens when police does not have enough resources to achieve their goal. I think all parents are going to feel identificated with the characters, and people who are not parents are going to think what would their parents do for them. 

Finally it must be said that the performances made by H.Jackman and J.Gyllenhaal were amazing. Also, the ending was different from what we've seen in Hollywood, normally, as Clint Eastwood did in Mystic River. 

This is one of the best movies of the year, not just because of the story, that catches your attention from the first minute, but for the portrayal of feelings, violence and intrigue.

coco | 2017

Coco és una pel·lícula que té el seu punt de partida en la història d'una família que viu a un llogaret, en castellà "aldea" de Mèxic, Santa Cecília. Només amb el nom fictici d'aquest llogaret tenim una pista del fil conductor i l'essència del film, la música.
Així doncs, ens trobem amb una família, fabricants de sabates tots ells, que - per una raó que s'explica al principi del film - tenen vetada la música en tots els àmbits de la seva vida. Tanmateix en Miguel, el més jove de la família, és un gran fanàtic d'Ernesto de la Cruz, qui sembla ser el més gran dels cantants mexicans de tots els temps. Per aquest motiu ell vol "viure el seu moment" i esdevenir músic encara que això suposi enfrontar-se i allunyar-se de la seva família.
Durant la pel·lícula, Miguel aprendrà a veure des d'una prespectiva el significat d'estimar i a valorar la seva família i també veurà quines són les conseqüències del pensament basat en la idea de "viure el …

mamma mia! here we go again! | 2018

Ten years after... here we go again! Mamma Mia! 'cause is that kind of memory that you will recall from your summer. 
Besides from the original cast with Donna Sheridan - Meryl Streep - as the main character along with her daughter Sophie - Amanda Seyfried - in this film we have the young Donna (Lily James), Bill (Josh Dylan), Sam (Jeremy Irvine), Harry (Hugh Skinner),  Rosie (Alexa Davies), Tanya (Jessica Keenan Wynn) and Sophie's grandma (Cher). The past and the present from this characters is combined and intertwined and keep you on the edge of your seat during 2 hours. 
Normally, sequels from movies aren't as good as the first one, but in my own opinion, this film is as good as the first one mainly because of the amazing performance that Lily James - young Donna - offers us. She totally knows how to step in Meryl Streep's shoes (and that's not easy as Meryl may probably one of the best actresses ever). She has charisma and accomplishes the mission of making yo…

This film is based on the book written by Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows where every chapter is a letter written by a different character. 
Juliet Ashton (Lily James) is the main character of this lovely film that portrays the story from some citizens from Guernsey Island that became a family when the nazis occupied the island during the II World War. As they had taken away all what they loved, they started a literary club where they discussed about books and life while they refuged from the demands of the nazis.

Juliet that loves reading books, but also is aspiring to be a writer thinks that visting the island can be her inspiration to do so as she is curious about this literary club and its story so she asks her best fri…
