When Harry Met Sally...(1989)
Notes: In my opinion, this movie is the ultimate romantic-comedy. Indeed, even though I always had a weak spot for the genre, to be honest, most of the rom-coms are actually so underwhelming. The main reason, in my opinion, is that they are usually poorly written and usually focusing on some terrible gimmicks. The great romantic-comedies, in fact, never put the accent on the gimmicks but on the characters and their relationship. This flick does it so well, not only it gives us some really 3 dimensional characters but, above all their relationship was just really sweet, sad, recognizable and pretty often quite hilarious. Following this flick, Meg Ryan pretty much became the queen of the genre with some various amount of success and it's just too bad she pretty much butchered her pretty face with some ill-advised plastic surgery during the last decade. Anyway, there is no denying that she and Billy Crystal had some great chemistry in this flick.

“Since this movie had a really lame reputation, I wasn’t expecting much but since I have a weak spot for Naomi Watts and since my wife has always been interested in Diana, I thought we might check this one together.

“This movie was really poorly received and it was even considered as one of the worst movies displayed at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015. With this in mind, I didn’t expect much from the damned thing but since it was the last movie directed by Gus Van Sant that I hadn't see yet, I still wanted to” read more

Crimes and Misdemeanors
Notes: Since this movie is considered as one of Woody Allen's best movies, I had some high expectations and I was really eager to check it out. Well, even though I did like it, to be honest, I was still not really blown away by the damned thing, even if it was miles better than his recent output. Basically, this time around, Allen went for 2 different stories which were both linked to adultery. The first story with Martin Landau was obviously heavily inspired by ‘Crimes and Punishment’ while the second story was just another tale about Woody Allen feeling miserable in his marriage and trying to cheat on his wife. As you can guess, it didn’t care much about the second tale and they could have dropped it as far as I was concerned. Concerning the part involving Landau, even though it was intriguing, it still felt too predictable to me. Eventually, what made this movie really worked was its surprisingly bleak ending. I have to admit that I didn’t get it while I was watching this movie but, later on, I understood that the whole thing was basically about the idea that there is actually no God or if there is a God, what’s the point in believing in him since people can get away with such terrible acts?

Rush
  Cast : Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Brühl, Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Natalie Dormer What was it about? The merciless 1970s rivalry between Formula One rivals James Hunt and Niki Lauda. My two cents:  Eventually, even though it was indeed a decent watch, to be honest, I can’t say I was really impressed by the whole thing. The first problem I had is that I had never heard of James Hunt before. I assumed that it was because of my lack of interest in Formula 1 but, at the end of the movie, we learned that Hunt just won one championship and retired pretty soon afterwards. From this point of view, it seems hard to believe that the guy was actually such a legend. Then, there is of course the problem that it was directed by Ron Howard. I mean, sure, for a Howard feature, it was pretty gritty but it was certainly not gritty enough and you can’t help wondering what would Paul Greengrass would have done with this material (Indeed, Greengrass was supposed to direct this movie and Howard was supposed to direct ‘Captain Phillips’ but they switched projet during the development stage). Still, the whole thing was well made, with some solid performances by Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brühl and, above all, it was quite entertaining. My rating: 07/10 Check the full review

13 Hours
Cast : John Krasinski What was it about? During an attack on a U.S. compound in Libya, a security team struggles to make sense out of the chaos. My two cents: Well, even though it was rather well received (according to IMDb, it is his best movie after 'The Rock'), it was pretty much a box-office flop and it is so far Michael Bay's lowest grossing movie so far. Basically, that's how it works, if they guy makes a really dumb movie about some gigantic robots, it will make billions, but if he tries to make something slightly smarter, nobody will care apparently. Anyway, how was the damned thing anyway? Well, I have to admit that it was probably one of the better movies directed by Bay and I thought it was a decent watch but, to be honest, it was still nothing really great in my opinion. First of all, even though it was some interesting stunt casting to have John Krasinski to play in an action movie like this one, he never really convinced me. I mean, physically, he looked fine but I never had the feeling that I was watching a seasoned soldier, something he even kept repeating throughout the damned thing. Then, even though they took a realistic approach, I thought it was still rather murky. What was the GRS? Feb 17? What were they doing there? Indeed, even though it was fairly long, too long, Bay spent a lot of time trying to set up the mood between these soldiers which wasn't necessarily a bad idea but I actually had a hard time to get a real grip on this story. Anyway, in spite of its flaws, I think it was actually a decent effort from this director. My rating: 6/10 Check the full review

“Well, after directing some of the biggest and dumbest blockbusters ever, Michael Bay decided to take a break and, this time, he went for something cheaper but still pretty dumb but guess what? I thought it was not bad at all. Indeed, basically, it was dealing with a really ridiculous story and I” read more
