  • The Lion King

    The Lion King

    ★★½

    I do believe there are a few untouchable films, for example, movies like 12 Angry Man, The Godfather, It Happened One Night, Casablanca and so many more, in that list, I include The Lion King (1994) as well, not only because it was one of the first movie theater experiences of my life, but also because its a movie that carries many emotions that are incredibly well-conceived.

    The original film transmits energy, it has a soul, there is a lot…

  • Secret Obsession

    Secret Obsession

    ★½

    A Lifetime movie, yep, this is a Lifetime movie that just happened to be on Netflix for some reason whatsoever.

    Boring, cliche and extremely predictable, I mean, it felt like they don't even try to do something interesting, everything is so meh. Save time and don't watch this, is not complete garbage but I don't recommend it.

  • The Hustle

    The Hustle

    I'm pretty sure that this movie might be the worst comedy I've seen in the entire year, I mean, this was pathetic.

    Nothing worked, there was zero chemistry between Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway, the story was all over the place with some plot elements that went nowhere, with terrible jokes, with awful green screen, with dreadful situations, I mean, this proves that even a good actress like Anne can give a horrible performance.

    People need to avoid this dogshit.

  • The 6th Day

    The 6th Day

    ★★

    Easily one of the weakest films in Schwarzenegger's career. The main problem in this movie is that the story is all over the place and is not very consistent in tone.

  • Child's Play

    Child's Play

    ★★★½

    Not in a million years I would have imagined that this movie would turn out to be good.

    Child's Play remake is interesting, to say the least. The movie differs from the original in a unique and clever way, now playing with concepts about A.I., technology, and consumerism. Also, the story doesn't waste minutes, is very straight-forward. The killings are cool and gory.

    I went in thinking that this would be one of the worst movies of the year and I ended up surprised.

  • Fantastic Mr. Fox

    Fantastic Mr. Fox

    ★★★★★

    Brilliant, just absolutely brilliant. This movie is pure joy, pure awesomeness, I mean, Wes Anderson is a genius and this is incredible.

  • Spider-Man: Far from Home

    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    ★★★★

    I had a lot of fun with this new Spider-Man movie. Undoubtedly, this new reinvention has given many more elements for Sony and Marvel to develop the character in a better way, for example, I like how this Peter deals with problems that a teenager have.

    A great element in this movie was the sense of humor, there were tons of jokes and only a few didn't hit the mark, also I like how the film almost feels like a…

  • Donbass

    Donbass

    ★★★½

    I laughed uncomfortably watching this movie, I think that was the intention. It's true that among all the vignettes, this is a portrait of people in which there has been a social collapse, in which there is violence, corruption, separation and more. A well-achieved satire.

  • Shaft

    Shaft

    ★★½

    Knowing nothing about the Shaft franchise I embarked in this movie, I would say that for the most part is pretty entertaining and funny. Samuel L. Jackson had a blast in this role and I liked the relation developt with Jessie Usher, even though is the typical buddy-cop relationship, however, the movie is a bit too long and the resolution is very predictable, not only with the case but also in the relation established between the father and son.

  • Annabelle Comes Home

    Annabelle Comes Home

    ★★

    Generic and bland, I mean, I wasn't expecting for this movie to be amazing, but I hoped it be something decent and unfortunately, this wasn't.

    It felt like the purpose of the movie was to see how many other spinoffs the franchise can create and that was a letdown because that made the story all over the place. The movie lacks tension, the director doesn't offer anything exciting, I mean, this is the typical horror film that we've seen forever.…

  • Anima

    Anima

    No sé cómo interpretar ANIMA, y creo que esa es su más grande virtud, aquí es donde podemos comprender muchas cosas en tan solo 15 minutos, un cortometraje hermoso dirigido magníficamente por Paul Thomas Anderson y con esa música de Tom Yorke que es fascinante, misteriosa y cautivadora al mismo tiempo.

    Sé que se quedará conmigo conforme pase el tiempo ya que probablemente sea una de las cosas que más repase este año.

  • The Dark Knight

    The Dark Knight

    ★★★★★

    The greatest virtue of The Dark Knight is its complexity, this is a film that encompasses many concepts, but all achieved through a serious narrative, deep, mature and relevant that at no time is pretentious or trying to lecture the viewer, in fact, it invites him to be part of that story in which morality, the actions of good and evil are in judgment and where corruption can explode even in the purest soul in a vulnerable moment.

    One of…
