catching fire | 2013

Imatge relacionada



Catching fire is, probably, a movie that is much more good and enjoyable if you've read the books before. Of course, as it's a movie, not everything is explained on this movie, but Lawrence performance really helps the audience to discover how does Katniss feel about everything that she is living (and that she has to live). It is a movie where you don't feel time going by,you nearly don't move from your seat, just to see how does Katniss, Peeta and the rest of the tributes and people try to survive in a world that Suzanne Collins created using the imagination and ideas from Orwell's 1984 book, roman history names and lots and lots of more influences that mixed made this book and, consequently, the film very entretaining and enjoyable. 

I have to say that with all the best-sellers adaptations that there are nowadays this is one of the best adaptations, because it takes the most important parts of the books and shows it like the book says, and this is remarcable because we're no really used to see that. More and more now the movies do not have nothing similar to the "books they are inspired in" and if you will to see what you've read in action, you end up depressed. 

So Catching fire is really a good adaptation from the addicting and entretaining books that counts with a good performance from Jennifer Lawrence that really fits into the character and that really makes this movie a decent movie to see if you like or not those kind of stories.  

Obviously, this book is a best-seller because it contains some of the classic elements of young literature. But it has also clever elements such as the revolution, the controlled life, politics, feelings... that make the movie and book special and very attractive. 

The end is similar to the twilight's breaking dawn end but it really makes you want to see the third one to see how does the story continue. 

So as a supporter of the books and the movies I must say that I really liked it and that this element that the books and movies have, politics, revolution, control.... is really amazing.

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 …

modern times | 1936

I've seen parts of this movie on my history class, on tv, everywhere... and it's not a coincidence it's because Chaplin just shows to the world the reality, like Steinbeck or Fitzgerald did, but using images. The Kid was a film where Chaplin wanted to show the poberty of people on the 'roaring twenties'. It was the 'dark side' of the american dream. With Modern Times Chaplin shows us the new techniques of productivity (fordism and or taylorism) and how lots of people lost their opportunities, like Chaplin does in the movie, because they didn't have resources.
Chaplin is a genius, thats widely known and common among people. Because he knew, at the time, how did the world evolutionate. And portrayed it in a way that may seem very easy, know that we see it with prespective, but that surely was very difficult to do at the time.
Modern Times is clearly a masterpiece and with the limitations of the cinematography of the time shows the reality of the Great …

tren de nit a lisboa | 2013

Tren de nit a Lisboa és una pel·lícula que gira entorn un llibre i el seu autor, d'origen portuguès i, com moltes altres, està basada també en un llibre. Sota el meu parer, a més, la manera com es narren els fets en ella, la fan una pel·lícula que és una mena de "llibre visual".
Hi ha diversos temes que es tracten en el film que, especialment, em recorden a la manera en què estic últimament percebent les lectures que faig i potser per això l'he qualificada de llibre visual. 
En primer lloc, m'agradaria destacar la idea del viatge, similar que seria una "road movie" on els personatges troben el sentit d'allò que estaven buscant realitzant aquest viatge al seu interior, i a un indret nou.  En aquest cas no hi ha carretera, ni diverses parades, si no que només n'hi ha una, Lisboa. El protagonista, Raimund, un professor d'escola divorciat amb una vida que ell descriu com "avorrida"- i percebem que sense grans aspiracions vitals-, reali…
