Simply a follow up to Jen's great post; there were getting to be so many pages in that one I thought it could use a refresh.  Happy to carry on the tradition!

Weathering with You (2019), 9/10. The English dub was great. Though, I wish I had the option for the subtitled version or at least knew it was going to be the English dubbed version when buying the ticket.

The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) - 2/10 Action; 10/10 Make Love, not Cold War; 100/10 bite force. The old James Bond movies seem less archaic now than ten years ago with regards to the political climate.

A Ghost Story(2017) 9/10

Personally, I consider this film a true narrative and technical achievement, it seems to me that telling a story through images without the use of dialogues is the most complicated thing for filmmakers, that is exactly what this film does; its actors are so expressive and the camera moves so well that it speaks for itself, each frame of this movie speaks more than a thousand words. Among its technical beauty lies a very deep story about life and death, have you ever wondered if there is life after death? probably if there were something after all this, it would be much sadder than life itself, this is a perfect portrait of this situation; thinking while you see how your existence is being forgotten, resign yourself to the passage of time, and discover that life is only a small period of time and death is eternal.

This movie is one of the best that touches the issue of loss and oblivion, obviously it is not a movie that anyone would endure, and you can easily get bored in the first 20 minutes.

Bad Boys for Life 3/10

In this movie there is nothing salvageable and nothing interesting beyond testosterone and mindless action that explode the screen, it will be quickly forgotten as another generic action movie with a soundtrack of songs of the moment, like the previous movies of this horrible saga.

JoJo Rabbit 8/10


The reason why critics are hating this movie is the same reason that the public loves it, it is a satire about one of the most terrible moments in human history, these stories must be told as seriously as possible in the world, at this time that people are hypersensitive, film critics sometimes take movies from fun for this kind of thing. JoJo Rabbit begins as a conventional comedy that discouraged me in the first moment with a caricatured representation of Adolf hitler, however with the development of the film, Hitler who is only the imaginary friend of JoJo takes radical attitudes and becomes the antagonist of the story at any given time. The first minutes with the children's camp, the friendly instructor and the symmetry of the frame reminded me a lot of Moonrise Kingdom, obviously Waititi owes Wes Anderson a lot when making this movie, JoJo Rabbit makes a sudden change after the first Act of the film, when an intense drama is introduced that makes the film more and more entertaining, knows how to lighten things with a touch of black comedy, and make them intense at the same time.
