    Shazam (2019)

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0448115

    We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word - SHAZAM. - this streetwise fourteen-year-old foster kid can turn into the grown-up superhero Shazam.
    Really enjoyed the movie. Was good fun!

    Roma (2018) - Alfonso Cuarón



    Won three Oscars (best foreign film, direction, cinematography). I don't mind slow-burning domestic dramas, but this is just pretentious tosh.

    It's well acted, but that's about it. It's full of kitsch-y symbols, one more ridiculous than the other. The final scene is supposed to be "cathartic", but the outcome is unbelievably lame.

    Conclusion: Cuarón is a hack pretending to be the real deal and the Oscar jury's been duped again.

    4/10

    I think Cuarón directed Y tu Mamį También, too. I found that particular film more than a little pretentious, not to mention obscene.

    I haven't seen that one, but I can imagine it being about as pointless as his other work.

    I've seen his Gravity (2013) as well, which was tedious and repetitive; it had more acrobatics than story. Seems that his films look pretty (apparently, he's also a cinematographer and editor), but that's about it.

    Oh well, it's good to know which director's future films not to look forward to.

    My wife and I avoid contemporary movies, and ALL television, in an effort to keep BS out of our minds. But we are looking forward to Avatar 2 next year.

    First Man (2018) - Damien Chazelle



    This is like a better version of Gravity (2013): space and sorrow. Ryan Gosling is his usual stoic self, playing Neil Armstrong as a man keeping all emotions to himself.

    So, supposedly a critique of male stereotypes of 1960s USA. But I think they're overdoing it; Goslings brooding eyes are a bit too empty and the story a tad too disorienting.

    The Apollo launch itself, though, that scene works really well; majestic and bittersweet. The landing isn't too bad either, although being on the verge of sentimentality.

    5/10

    Excellent movie, much better than I expected, and also smoother than the reality, even though it can still be shocking... Good movie if you want to make someone see and understand the dark side of communism (if they have any doubts about that). It is based on reality.

    The great and only love of his life was Fanny Brawne, the daughter of his landlady. He lived with his friend, Charles Brown, and she with her mother, sister and brother in the two halves of a Hampstead cottage so small, it gives meaning to the phrase "living in each other's pockets." Their love was grand and poetic and -- apart from some sweet kisses -- platonic, for he had neither the means nor the health to propose marriage, and they were not moved to violate the moral code of what was not yet quite the Victorian era.

    -From Rogerebert.com




    A beautiful, unforgettable scene:

    Great taste as always Alice.

    I found this one by mere luck and I totally enjoyed it. Plus Deborah Raffin and Christopher Reeve made a cute couple. I didn't know that she passed away.

    Us (2019) - Jordan Peele



    Zombie-apocalypse-esque horror with very Jungian undertones (the creepy doppelgangers are even called "shadows").

    It's not a bad handiwork, but it's a bit too crowded with people and symbols to be really effective. It comes off as meticulous, clever and viscous rather than as emotionally powerful.

    5/10

    Both Guardians of the Galaxy films and Avengers: Infinity War. I'm really open to the prospect of Marvel's dominating the superhero film scene. They have a good grasp of humour and understand how to tie in all these stories together (can't say the same for their television series).
    My favorite scene was the one involving the Soul Stone. The implication is that Thanos loved himself through his daughter Gamora. He tried to cast her into a mold (make her a living weapon) and wanted to decide her life for her. He only saw in her (as well as his other adopted children) a potential successor. In the end, Gamora really saw him for what he was (an egotist), even if she herself began to doubt it.
