Some of have been saying it’s one of the best movies of the year… For me… I’m still not convinced. The best movie should be one that reunites in perfect harmony the story, the characters, the cinematography, the direction, everything!!
For everyone who may think it will be a movie just focused on space and how everything goes up there you don’t have nothing to worry because yes, even if space is a big character in the whole movie, it’s also secondary when most of the movie focus on the reflections by the character of Sandra Bullock.
The biggest names (or the only names we know about the movie) are Sandra Bullock and George Clooney but Bullock is definitely the star of the movie. She present us with a really good performance and keep us rooting for her through all the minutes.
Honestly, the best part of the movie is the cinematography. The images are just perfect and the technology used by Cuarón is fabulous. Being an old project I think it was the right decision to wait a few years until technology had reached a certain level of definition. The whole movie is just beautiful to watch, the special effects, the 3D. All that is worth.
But in the end I don’t believe it is the best movie because there’s just something missing. Maybe it’s the story that is lacking something… I mean, it’s good but it’s not perfect.
But, in the end, 7 out of 10!
Going to the premiere knowing almost nothing about the movie was probably the best thing I did. I didn’t have any expectations or nothing like that and in the end felt like a good surprise.
The plot is about a 911 call made by an abducted girl and the way the 911 operator deals with it (considering the “script” they should follow during the calls according to the situation).
Not wanting to spoil anything for you, do believe the movie is interesting for showing us a point of view we don’t know much or even nothing about. Focusing on the 911 operator, Richard D’Ovidio was smart enough and kept that idea in the screenplay through the whole story showing us what it’s like to be on the other side of an emergency call.
What happens to the operator who answers and help? How far is he/she involved in the case and how much can be done about it from the central operation? And what happens next when the call is disconnected?
I think this whole idea is something new and far different from the movies we are being presented to in the past months.
The movie never stops and you’re always thinking about what will come next.
Brad Anderson did an amazing job in the sequence of narrative and keep up us guessing about what we’ll see next (even if at the same time we are not sure of wanting to see what the characters are seeing).
Halle Berry and Abigail Breslin are the stars of the movie and they showed us why they have been recognized before for their work.
Berry is very believable as the 911 operator and shows the mixed emotions of someone who gets too much involved in a work like these.
On the other hand, Abigail Breslin is a big girl already and it’s nice to see her doing a movie like this. I can only imagine how hard it must have been for to shoot some scenes (when you see the movie you’ll get what I’m saying) but she proved how talented she can be and how strong she is to portray a character in this situation.
It’s not the best movie of the year but it’s definitely a good movie.
7 out of 10!
“Singin’ in the Rain”, one of the most iconic movies of all time, pulls you to a world of singing and dancing in the late 20’s.
The movie is about the changes in cinema when the movies stop being silent and start to be talking pictures. The “it” couple of the silver screen, Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) and Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen) are the first to try this new type of cinema but not everything goes well. With the help of his friend, Cosmo Brown (Donald O’Connor), Don finds a way to make the movie successful but not without the help of Kathy Selden (Debbie Reynolds), an aspiring actress.
The whole movie is just upbeat with numerous numbers of song and tapping, one of the many talents of Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor.
The work of Miss Debbie Reynolds is absolutely fabulous. You can see how hard she worked for the part and to keep up with Gene Kelly and O’Connor.
Jean Hagen also has one of her best performances in here and make us believe in her character.
Playfully charm, this movie presents you with musical numbers so well choreographed with the scenarios and the scenes that you don’t even question the fact that they should be singing or not.
One of the best musicals and if you happen to like tap dance there’s no better movie to watch than this one with both stars Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor (Debbie Reynolds also shows how good she can be with them)
One of the most emblematic tv shows from the past two decades, I believe it’s one of the best tv shows in the genre of comedy.
But sure, there are many other shows that are also good…
The show focus on the lives of six friends who have met through the years in different occasions and who are still living together and sharing their daily experiences.
It all starts with the arrival of one of the main characters, Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston), at the famous coffee shop that everybody knows in New York City, Central Perk. From there you follow Rachel, Monica Geller (Courteney Cox), Ross Geller (David Schwimmer), Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc), Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry) and Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow).
Each season you find yourself involved in the history of the characters and the way they always connect to each other. The funny parts really are hilarious, the sad moments really connects to us and if there’s one thing that I believe Kevin Bright, David Crane and Marta Kauffman didn’t knew when they created the show was how much it would mean to every fan.
The jokes are priceless and the expressions memorable and the episodes are, all of them, equally memorable. The main cast is perfect and if there’s one award for the whole cast it would go for them (after catching the whole show I also advice to see the Gag Reel/Bloopers because you’ll love it!)
“F.R.I.E.N.D.S” is one of the top shows of the 90’s, a pioneer and one of the biggest inspirations for many of the shows that have a big fan base at the moments (to notice that if you claim to be a big fan of “How I Met Your Mother” and yet you haven’t spend any time watching “F.R.I.E.N.D.S.” you have all the priorities wrong and you should go watch the whole 10 seasons in a row.. NOW!)
