lucy | 2014

Resultat d'imatges de lucy



The idea that Luc Besson tried to develop in this film is great. However, the film isn't that good. It is about a young woman, whom we don't know barely anything, - she's just an american woman living in Taiwan that speaks a little bit of french and it's not very good looking- that ends up being caught in a dark deal where she has to transport a bag of drug, inside her body, to a certain part of the planet earth and there she'd be free when they extract the bag.  

Lucy ends up drugged after a beat of one of the captors, and from this point on, the film becomes very interesting because the drug increases the brain capacity progressively from 10% - the average of humans - to 100%. Meanwhile, another character is presented. Morgan Freeman becomes a Professor, named Norman, that is working on a theory where he wants to discover what could happen if a human could use more brain capacity than the average. 

If the film would have centered the attention in the Johansson's and Freeman's characters, it could have been - as said previously- a really good film, with a cleverer screenplay, because it contain some really good scenes where they talk about the brain and how the brain capacity affects a human but Besson shuns this and centers a lot of attention into the persecution of the corean dealers to recuperate the drugs and the kill Lucy. 

In conclusion, seems like Luc Besson wanted to do an action film where the heroine is very different from the DC or Marvel comics, and from the typical films of this genre. The strong points of this film are the main idea, the performances of Johansson and Freeman. However, the weak ones are the fact there's a lot of action in a 90 minute film that should have been longer to explore a little bit more the great idea of having a more brain capacity than the average.

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…
