inception | 2010

Resultat d'imatges

For four years I had been trying to watch that film and finally I've done it. Inception presents a new way of sci-fi or fantastic cinema. It has an amazing and complex story behind that the spectator understands and nowadays the general public that goes to the cinema, the popular cinematic culture wants to be entertained for a while and not thinking how this awesome plot can be understood or not. Christopher Nolan did that with that film and this is the reason of it's success. 

Inception as the word says is based on the origins of everything, of us. Mr.Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) knows how to enter to the dreams and basically how to move in those dream, we could tell he is an expert on dreams more that he lives in reality. One day, he and his fellow colleague are offered the task of their life. They need to do an inception on somebody else's mind and if they succeed Cobb, that has been drawn away from his family for the most part of his life, will be free of charges - he was accused of a murder - and will be able to go home. 

This task includes six people that are going to have to go under three dreams in order to accomplish the task. This part is the most interesting one because of the six people two are the experts on dreaming (Cobb and his fellow, Arthur), one girl is an architect (to build the dreams - as if they were labyrinths), another is a forger and the last one is a merchant of sedatives. Together they are going to experience, with the audience, an awesome adventure that keeps you on the edge of your seat and that makes you feel as if you were on a maze .

So this is a great movie to watch and the more times you watch it the more things you discover. Is probably one of those films who is a bit long, two hours and fifteen minutes but that seems very short and Nolan, the director, plays with the time in the movie as well so something that seems to be very fast in the movie becomes very slow - [spoiler] that ban falling into the river - and it plays with the viewer. 
As for the cast, I think this film counted with amazing actors such as Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Michael Cane, Tom Hardy or Marion Cotillard among others that did a good job. The music by Hans Zimmer is quite amusing, it really puts you on the middle of the film as if you were one more character. I've talked about the screenplay before but I think this is a very good one, very smart and complex but at the same time simple. So I would recommend anybody to see that movie, there aren't "buts" or anything, really enjoyable for everybody which converts this movie to one of the best movies of the last years.

roma | 2018

A really good (and must) film to watch during the holidays. This is apparently an ordinary story told by an immense Alfonso Cuarón. The movie was shot in black and white and it is also beautifully shot in long takes. Fundamentally Roma is the tale of two women, Cleo (play by Yalitza Aparicio) working as a live-maid for a beleaguered upper middle-class family in Mexico City. It is an autobiographical story from the director and during the film you can see that there are signs of tensions and dysfunction from both the family and the maid. Those little things are hints and demonstrations of the feelings of the characters. The man of the house (Antonio) can't stand being at his own house, you can see that by the way he parks his car, and his wife  (Sofía) is struggling to keep the family together. 
So, meanwhile Antonio keeps travelling for what, supposedly, are business trips, a stressed Sofia one day tells the children it would be a good idea to write to their dad, imploring him to…

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…

the guernsey literary and potato peel pie society | 2018

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 Ashton, a londoner who lost her parents when she was a girl, meets this literary club through a letter that Dawsey Adams, a citizen from the island, sends to her when he found out her name and address in a book from the local library that had been abandoned. 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…
