captain america: the winter soldier | 2014

Resultat d'imatges de captain america winter soldier

Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), the paradigm of the United States - a man that turns out to be the idol of the nation - has to face, now, a new chapter of his life where he has to face a new enemy and save some citizens from the destruction. This is the second movie of this saga where there's a good plot but with barely different, or not so used sequences or scenes of the superheros movie, in general. However there are a couple or three scenes where the movie seems closer to real live, for example the Apple Store scene, the monologue of a computer or some comedic scenes. 

As for the story, Steve Rogers, as said, needs to solve a new problem that has emerged from the bowels of Shield, where he works. Helped by always an astute and ingenious Black Widow/Natascha (Scarlett Johansson) and another friend Rogers will need to find out what's going on and face a very powerful enemy, the Winter Soldier. The film has also story about the conspiracy of the 80's in America (also nowadays), and Robert Redford character looks like a Nixon or Reagan. 

So, to conclude,  it can be said this quite a long film for the story that has to tell but that it also has some things that Marvel does to differentiate their films from all the others and above all to make every superhero look different in some way - just compare this films with the Iron Man ones. It is well written but it has a lack of surprise on the screenplay that makes it just one more feature film to watch once and some other time if you turn to watch it but not more. 

Everything is prepared for The Avengers.

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…
