Yeah, I really loved the damned thing. In fact, it is so far my favorite movie released in 2017.

Final Girl
Notes: Well, eventually, it turned out to be really lame. Seriously, pretty much nothing worked with this movie. I mean, the story was boring and barely made sense, it was poorly directed and the performances were all weak. Concerning the story, what the hell was with this introduction? Indeed, you get to see Wes Bentley grooming some very young girl to become a killer but you never get the opportunity to learn what the deal was with this man and this girl. Then, they decide to kill a group of young psychopaths but it was the same thing. How did he find them? What did they have to do with his vengeance plan? It was all seriously idiotic and just completely random. Concerning the directing, I can imagine that they had a limited budget but the whole thing looked so cheap and unconvincing. Finally, concerning the acting, even though I have a weak spot for Abigail Breslin, her deep blue eyes were one of the very few redeeming features in this movie, she wasn’t convinving at all. I mean, she was actually an interesting choice to play this character but, to make it work, she should have had at least 6 months or even 1 full year of intense fighting training. Obviously, it didn’t happen here and, as a result, she honestly looked rather pathetic and there was no way in real life that she would beat any of these guys.

Notes: To be honest, I was rather surprised that this movie was included in this list. I mean, it is a pretty good thriller, no doubt about it, but to add it on this prestigious list might be giving it slighty too much credit. Once again, it is definitely a solid feature, Alan J. Pakula managed to create a tensed and rather mesmerizing mood. Furthermore, Donald Sutherland and Jane Fonda were just terrific in this. Eventually, Fonda got the most credit and she did give an impressive performance, winning her first Academy award in the process. So, the movie looked very good and it was quite spellbinding to watch but, somehow, I wasn't completely blown away by the whole thing. I don’t know, maybe it is because I have seen too many sleazy thrillers which were made afterwards but the story was actually rather straightforward. Basically, in my opinion, it was pure style but no substance but it is still a decent thriller though.

An average movie

“Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this movie, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, even though it was certainly a decent directing debut for Joel Edgerton, to be honest, I wasn’t completely sold by the damned thing.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
From.... (Mamma Mia! 2008) To... (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again 2018) Gap between movies : 10 years Was it worth the wait ? : Well, we'll see but I have my doubts. Indeed, the first installment was a big box-office success at the time but I really wonder if anyone will care for such a sequel (I won't, that's for sure).

Blade Runner 2049
Notes: Since I kept hearing some really amazing things about this movie and since I am a huge fan of the 1st movie, I became so excited about the damned thing and I was so eager to finally check it out. Well, eventually, even though it was indeed really good, I don't think it was really so great after all. To be honest, I have a strong feeling that many critics and viewers have overpraised this movie because everybody pretty much dismissed its predecessor when it was released when it was in fact a masterpiece so, this time around, they didn't want to feel like some idiots. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, sure, it was visually really neat and it was quite amazing to come back to this fascinating futuristic world but it was not as groundbreaking as I expected. Same thing about the story, I mean, it was pretty neat to see a sequel coming so long after the previous installment with a really decent story but, once again, the story in 'Blade Runner' worked better for me. On the positive side, I really loved how they developed Ryan Gosling's character who was really complex and constantly interesting and entertaining. Eventually, don't believe the hype, it was a very good movie, no doubt about it, and Denis Villeneuve displayed once again that he is easily one of the best directors at work nowadays, but it is probably not a revolutionary masterpiece like its predecessor was and still is.

The French Connection
Notes: To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Even though I have a lot of respect for this flick, eventually, it didn’t really win me over though. That’s something that sometimes happen with huge old classics like this one. Indeed, at the time of its release, it must have been really groundbreaking but, during the following 40 years, they have made so many similar movies that it has lost some of its impact, at least, in my case. Still, there is no denying that it is really solid gritty thriller with a star-making performance from Gene Hackman. This movie will be also forever remembered for its amazing car chase which is still considered as one of the best ever made, even after all these years. A couple of years later, William Friedkin would come back with ‘The Exorcist’ which was another massive hit and definitely one of the most highly regarded horror movies ever released. Unfortunately, after making 2 classics back-to-back, the rest of his career turned out ot be rather underwhelming.

mother!
Notes: I have to admit it, it was a difficult movie to read as the whole thing was just so bizarre and chaotic and I can imagine that not everyone might be able to connect with this picture. But that was also the real beauty of it, the fact that you could give it pretty much any meaning you want. Indeed,someone might think that it is a story about motherhood, some others might say it is about how chaotic our society and way of life has become. As far as I was concerned, it felt like a fascinating and endless nightmare, the way everything seemed familiar and yet odd at the same time and the way the main character seemed to a be mere spectator with no control over the events happening in front of her. Their world kept shifting, unfolding and exploding with some continuous random small or big events which felt really reminiscent to a nightmare, at least, to me, and this process was quite spellbinding to behold.
