the spectacular now | 2013

Resultat d'imatges de the spectacular now

Sometimes we go to the cinema and watch a romantic comedy. We either like it or not, but there's not much to say, it is a story full of stereotypes that we've seen in many other movies. The Spectacular Now changes this. It is not a romantic comedy, even if it can seem it is. It is a reflexion about childhood and adulthood.

The film brakes all the things we thought we were going to see and lets us explore in the teen years of many people - like he insecurities about the future, facing your fears. Sutter (Miles Teller) is a popular guy that has a job in a men's clothing shop and a popular girlfriend. Instead of being a super attractive guy, Sutter is a normal guy that preaching the carpe diem topic and being humorous nearly all the time and trying no to think about the future. When he meets Aimee (Shailene Woodley), a girl that goes to the same school that him he starts a journey that is going to change everything he thought that was alright. This is the main part of the film were Sutter discovers that there's people that love and appreciate him and that want him to do the right thing. More importantly, they want him to think about the future, the adulthood.

So this film becomes an incredible, funny but also sad film because it makes us see the difficulties of the step forward to being adult. Miles and Shailene Woodley really have a chemistry in the movie and make really good performances. 

It is, in fact, very different from all the commercial movies that have been made.

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…
