    At the Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal

    ★★★★

    80/100

    As it's happening right now with Jeffrey Epstein. As it happened with Weinstein and many others and how unfortunately it will continue to happen with many other sexual predators, it happens because people protect them.

    Beyond the horrors and atrocities they commit, this continues to happen because there are people who covers them, people who didn't notice, people who didn't want to give an account, people who knew what was happening and preferred to keep silent and look the…

  • Stuber

    Stuber

    ★★

    45/100

    Surprisingly there's a good and functional chemistry between Nanjiani and Bautista but the main problem lies in everything else and is that this is the kind of comedy that depends on how little you demand from it to make it look more fun than it really is.

  • Flu

    Flu

    ★★½

    50/100

    South Korea's Contagion, Only more boring, more melodramatic and more fatalistic.
    Soderbergh's film approach was realistic, this one is much more focused on the disaster and action genres. It could have worked but it didn't

  • The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion

    The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion

    ★★★

    65/100

    An interesting and violent action proposal from South Korea that problematically is riddled with several narrative and pacing problems.
    There's a huge disparity between the tone of the first hour and the second and that's a problem also because I think it shouldn't be so long. 90 more concise minutes would have been quite beneficial.

    The action when arrives is quite brutal and entertaining although the visual effects don't favor it. Blame the budget.

    While the story may feel…

  • Crawl

    Crawl

    ★★½

    55/100

    Movies should not always be realistic or plausible, that's more than understandable but also in spite of the fact that as a viewer you're looking for a certain type of entertainment you have to know at what moment you draw the line with the absurd; And Crawl is full of absurdities.

    This film reminds me of ''Don't Breath'' because it appears to me that in the absence of innovation in the genres of horror and suspense, a certain part…

  • Fuck You All: The Uwe Boll Story

    Fuck You All: The Uwe Boll Story

    ★★½

    50/100

    A decent documentary about the work of one of the worst filmmakers ever. Not really an irony if you ask me.

  • Culture Shock

    Culture Shock

    ★★★

    65/100

    More mystery and suspense than actual horror honestly but it was ok.
    They could had cover different narrative directions but it wasn't so bad, after all considering the story doesn't need adornments to emphasize its current relevance it works enough.

    Many people empathize and talk a lot about Black Mirror when they're reviewing these stories but beyond certain elements, the comparison is laughable.

  • High Life

    High Life

    ★★★½

    70/100

    Confusing, somber, vague, challenging. Adjectives that can dissuade many from watching this film. And the truth is that I don't think that many will find it really attractive but I personally believe that it's a risky proposal fighting so many passive blockbusters.

  • Teen Spirit

    Teen Spirit

    ★★½

    55/100

    Predictable to the bone and too sweetened. The story is built that way and cannot help it but still.

    Considering that it's a directorial debut it is understood, however, the proposal doesn't really compensate and almost all the music is quite forgettable, which is a serious flaw considering that this aspect is a cornerstone of the narrative.

    Elle Fanning complies but I still maintain my opinion that she should look for more solid jobs. It's good that she continues to work on so many indie films but she needs better roles.

    It's not a ''bad' film but it could have been much better.

  • The Heretics

    The Heretics

    ★½

    35/100

    Some of these low-budget horror films sound interesting at first but they're so predictable and so bad that the interest is immediately diluted.

  • Into the Dark: All That We Destroy

    Into the Dark: All That We Destroy

    ★★

    45/100

    The idea of ​​a greater good. But badly executed.

    The extremes the mother reaches to keep the murderous nature of her son at bay are laughable.

    It basically gives him free rein in a controlled environment. Instead of really helping him, while cloned women died for it.
    This was not horror or suspense.

  • Innocent Witness

    Innocent Witness

    ★★★½

    70/100

    A deceptively simple drama that although it's a bit naive and sentimentalist presents an interesting and engaging story and it addition it touches the theme of autism in a sober and intelligent manner.

    I didn't expect much sincerely and I ended up enjoying it quite a lot.
