You will go in for a treat today for I'll be reviewing 5 movies woohoo! 😀 Don't worry, I'll keep it short and straight to the point.
Finally, another superhero movie with a female as the main character ❤ ! You get to see her childhood, to fully grown fierce woman who has to decide her own fate. Gal Gadot nailed it in every way. Plus, women warriors kicking ass and fighting . I went out of the movies theatre and wanted to be an Amazon so badly.
I've never seen a superhero so empathic and having the biggest moral clarity ever, some would mistake it even for naivety.
The only thing that I didn't like is the villain. As we discover his identity, I thought the character in the movie was not really fit for the real villain we should be seeing from the comics. He lacks..that OP VIBE you know? Also, too much bad CGI for Wonder Woman's fighting scene… so the fighting seems less natural in some scene, I'm sure she'll be just fine without too much graphic effects.
THIS MOVIE WAS SO REFRESHING. I didn't know what it was about but as soon as I heard : MUSIC FUELS THE DRIVER. I WAS SOO IN. I loved music from the 70s and 80s and if I was a car racer, this movie would be my life in every single way haha.It was also violent and gory *smirk*. Loved the casting ! Ansel Elgort and Lily James take on characters we've never seen them before. Kevin Spacey , well, doing his spacey magic on screen. The humor from Jamie Foxx was perfect. The only side characters that I didn't like much was Jon Hamm and Elza Gonzalez, I feel like they didn't add anything new to the story.
The entire movie is like a musical without the characters having to sing nor dance, the entire soundtrack guide us into believing it.
Charlize Theron was born to be the female version of John Wick (same director). Her acting and fighting scenes were perfect. A lot of people complained about the lack of emotions in the movie but I find it perfect like that. You are not supposed to be emotionally disturbed when you are a good spy. Charlize show us enough of her humanity and quickly hide it with wits and remember her place in the world. There are two things I didn't like was some of the plot feels… empty and cold (no shit duh Trang, it's in winter). It just sets the whole movie in a weird way. And James McAvoy character was also a mess, he plays a rebel Berlin spy but we never really understood his place.
Definitely my favourite movie of the summer just because there were not a lot of cons I find in this Homecoming. The villain development and introduction was on point. Every superhero movie should look at this one as an example to settle the villain gently. Tony Starks appears only a few times and it was perfect like that for the movie is not focused on him. His best friend, HILARIOUS. Finally a teenage Spiderman I could believe in and relate if I was a hero at that age.
P.S: Thank you for not including the Uncle Ben's death scene again because after 4 movies, I think we all get it.
I recommend this movie for those who LOVEE and are PASSIONATE about beautiful cinematography. Christopher Nolan plays with his angles here and offers us an unique perspective of war. It's quiet, and then suddenly thousands are dead. He offers raw and reality in which I had no idea. The parallel plot and out of sync timeline make this movie a nice puzzle to decrypt and enjoy. However, I fell asleep in the movie for the repetitive explosions (very nolan-y) and actions. It is quite different from any movie on this post so far and you may hate it or love it depending on your taste. If you like a nice family action with plots and effects, this may not be for you. It is slow, quiet and a lot of repetition scenes.
That's it for today! 😀 Hope you enjoyed this post and let me know which movies you watched or will be watching 😉
