Day for Night
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. By now, I have seen most of the movies directed by François Truffaut but, even though it is his one of his most critically acclaimed features, I still had a hard time to connect with the damned thing. I mean, it was well done and fairly intriguing but I’m afraid it was still too abstact for me and, to be honest, it all felt rather pretentious to me. The other tricky thing with this rather artistic approach is that you never really get to know the characters involved and you don’t really get a plot to hang onto. On the other hand, I was really young when I first saw it so I should definitely check it out again at some point to make up my mind about the damned thing.

Mean Streets
Notes: Basically, after struggling for many years, Martin Scorsese finally managed to get his breakthrough. Of course, Robert De Niro was involved and he would also get his breakthrough thanks to this movie. Honestly, it has been years since I saw this one and it definitely needs a re-watch. I don't think it is one of Scorsese's best movies. Eventually, he would make ‘Taxi Driver’, ‘Raging Bull’, ‘Goodfellas’ and ‘Casino’ and those are only some of the movies he would direct with De Niro so that’s rather unfair to compare this movie to such impressive classics but it was still really solid. Above all, with this movie, you were able to witness the birth of one of the greatest American directors that ever lived. The most interesting aspect, in my opinion, was how gritty the whole thing was and how genuine it felt. Indeed, so far, most gangsters have been rather glamorized but, here, they were displayed as human beings, albeit twisted but still human which was really refreshing. This attention in constructing some fully-fledged characters would become a trademark in Scorsese's work.

A good movie

“Not to be confused with ‘Howl's Moving Castle’, another movie directed Hayao Miyazaki, to be honest, even if I was really eager to check this movie, I still struggled to get into the damned thing. I mean, you have to agree that the beginning was pretty much a huge mess during which most of the m” read more

The Double Lover
Notes: First of all, I thought it was pretty neat to see another movie directed by François Ozon less than a year after watching his previous directing effort. On top of that, I actually enjoyed it more than 'Frantz' and this movie was more a typical Ozon feature dealing with his usual twisted characters with some rather dubious promiscuous sexuality. Indeed, most of the movie was a very entertaining and intriguing mystery and, for a very long time, I was wondering how it would end (personally, I was toying fo a while with the idea that Paul and Louis were actually one guy having a double life). Unfortunately, Ozon had to wrap everything up at some point and, like most similar thrillers, it was rather weak, I'm afraid. Indeed, after all, it turned out that the main character we even crazier than we first thought and that she imagined/fantasized the whole thing up. It was a rather weak choice because, as a viewer, you feel cheated after investing yourself for so long in the characters and what they were going through. It was also a really easy way out for the director. Still, even if the end didn't really work for me, the rest of the movie was fine, it looked really neat and both Marine Vacth and Jérémie Reinier should be praised as they delivered some really strong performances.

Kong: Skull Island
Notes: I have to admit that it was not bad at all after all. Indeed, it was an interesting choice to set the action in the 70's and, as a result, it really stood out from it predecessors and it was easily the funkiest version of King Kong I have seen so far. It was also pretty neat that, right from the moment that they came to Skull Island, you actually get to see Kong in a massive fight which was quite unexpected as, usually, in this genre, you have to wait forever before something really exciting actually happens. Still, when I think about it, the story was not really strong after all. Indeed, basically, the characters go into quite some trouble to get to this island and, yet, from the very minute they get there, they decide that they actually have to escape. At some point, Samuel L. Jackson even became a bad guy for some rather dubious reasons and the whole thing from this point pretty much lost me. To make things worse, there were maybe 10 or 15 characters and none of them, except maybe John C. Reilly, was properly developed and the biggest victims were Brie Larson and Tom Hiddleston, two of the most interesting actors at work nowadays. Seriously, they both really had nothing to do, except looking really attractive. Eventually, in spite of its flaws,I have to admit that it was a still decent watch.

An average movie

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Hilary Swank, I thought I might as well check it out. By the way, to be honest, even though she managed to win 2 Oscars for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role, her career turned out to be rather ” read more

All the Money in the World
Release date (U.S.) : 8 December 2017 directed by : Ridley Scott with : Mark Wahlberg, Kevin Spacey, Michelle Williams, Timothy Hutton, Romain Duris plot : A left-wing paramilitary organization in Italy hatches a massive kidnapping plot in the 1970s. Why do I want to see this ? To be honest, after 'Alien: Covenant' turned out to be so far the most disappointing movie I saw this year, I thought I was pretty much done with Ridley Scott. On the other hand, it sounds like a good story so I think I will give this director (again) another shot.

Dunkirk
Notes: Well, it seems to be already another box-office hit for Nolan which is even more remarkable since you wouldn't expect a movie dealing with WWII to be able to compete with your usual summer blockbusters. Still, to be honest, I don't think it will be remembered as one of his best movies. I mean, sure, I was glad that he was at last doing something else than a super-hero flick or some high-concept science-fiction thriller, but at the end of the day, even if it looked different, it was still yet another thriller, something he has been doing through his whole career. Furthermore, I have seen my share of movies dealing with this conflict and, even though it was really good, I have seen better to be honest. On top of that, I didn't care much for the mixed chronology and I didn't help that really none of the involved characters was developed at all. Still, from a technical point of view, it was really quite impressive and I have to admit that this movie was just seriously entertaining.

The Mummy
Notes: Since this movie was so poorly received, I didn't expect much from the damned thing but Nick, my step-son, was really eager to check it out. Well, in fact, probably because I had such low expectations but, to be honest, I thought it was actually not bad at all. I mean, this mummy concept remains rather limited and I thought the makers did a decent job. Sure, it was still nothing really amazing but the action scenes were quite spectacular. Still, even though the action scenes were entertaining enough, they were maybe too many of them, and, as a result, you get to see the mummy in the streets of London causing some major damages only for a few minutes which was rather disappointing. It was also obviously a gimmick to have the mummy played by a woman this time around but Sofia Boutella was seriously charismatic, in spite of the obvious limitations of her character. Eventually, you might wonder if they will move on with their 'Dark universe' considering the lackluster enthusiasm towards this movie and the scenes connecting this movie with the other characters which would be involved in this universe felt really forced and rather awkward.
