“Le Fidèle (The Racer and the Jailbird)” Movie Review + Short Cast Interview

Past weekend, Le Fidèle, whose English title's The Racer and the Jailbird, had its avant première in Brussels, which I was able to attend. Before the movie started, the director and main cast introduced themselves and answered some questions. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to ask those questions ourselves. At seven thirty the cast and crew of Le … Continue reading “Le Fidèle (The Racer and the Jailbird)” Movie Review + Short Cast Interview

Opinion: “Before I Fall” (2017)

Ever since Barry Jenkins, the director of 2016’s Moonlight, announced on Twitter that this film was worth checking out, I was more than excited to see it. So I was naturally disappointed when the film didn’t get a release date in my country. We only tend to get big budget blockbusters in theaters and sometimes … Continue reading Opinion: “Before I Fall” (2017)

Opinion: “The Big Sick” (2017)

“So, uh, 9/11…” Terry says “No I mean, I've always wanted to have a conversation with…” he continues while gesturing at Kumail "...about it. With…People” “You've never talked to people about 9/11?” Kumail asks “No what's your, what's your stance?” “What's my stance on 9/11? Oh um, anti. It was a tragedy, I mean we … Continue reading Opinion: “The Big Sick” (2017)

Opinion: “The Visit” (2015)

“M. Night Shyamalan’s return as a good director” Those were words people spoke after the release of M. Night Shyamalan’s The Visit, oddly enough. People were praising it all around and a reviewer that I follow, Chris Stuckmann, with whom I agree quite a lot, gave it a B. So I  was generally pretty excited when … Continue reading Opinion: “The Visit” (2015)

Opinion: “Assassin’s Creed” (2016)

Assassin’s Creed was a film that I hoped would be good. It had Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons…: an all-around amazing cast. Not only that but also the director sparked some hope. The year prior to Assassin’s Creed Justin Kurzel made the cinematic artwork called Macbeth, also starring Fassbender and Cotillard. And since the … Continue reading Opinion: “Assassin’s Creed” (2016)

Opinion: “Dunkirk” (2017)

The story of Dunkirk is told from three different perspectives: land, air, and sea.  Each perspective has to tell the same story, which is all about trying to help the stranded soldiers on the beach of Dunkirk escape. The story is pretty basic, but the way it’s told isn’t, which I really liked. Dunkirk is … Continue reading Opinion: “Dunkirk” (2017)

Opinion: “The LEGO Batman Movie”

The Lego Batman Movie is the colorful film about the titular character, who’s struggling with emotional problems, while The Joker desperately wants him to hate him. Right off the bat (badum tss), I'll say that this is a visually stunning film. Each shot was incredibly well-lit and framed, with a heavy, but beautiful amount of color creating frame … Continue reading Opinion: “The LEGO Batman Movie”

Opinion: The Dark Tower Trailer #1

SPOILERS FOR THE BOOK SERIES I am late to the party… again. But this time I have an excuse: I was reading. When The Dark Tower trailer dropped a few weeks ago, I was still reading the book series the movie will be based upon, written by Stephen King. Since I didn’t want any spoilers … Continue reading Opinion: The Dark Tower Trailer #1

Opinion: “Berlin Syndrome” (2017)

Berlin Syndrome was one of the many films which premiered at Sundance that I wanted to see and now I’ve finally been able to do just that thing, and let me tell you this: it was worth the wait. In this independent, psychological, semi-horror film we meet Clare, a young and aspiring Australian journalist who … Continue reading Opinion: “Berlin Syndrome” (2017)
