Hawaii Five-0 (2010) – S01

I watched some random episodes in the TV, and recently decided to give it a watch. As my sister also likes, it allows some nice time at the night. The series is not something formidable. But it is fun, it has some action, and it runs in Hawaii, with nice landscapes, great beaches and bikini […]

The Devil’s Violinist (2013)

Really bad movie for what I was expected. It is not a documentary (just like Bohemiam Raphsody isn’t a documentary). Thus, we expect a minimal story. And this story is… well, mostly non existent. Other than that, I was expecting better acting. I know David Garrett is not an actor. But I suppose there was […]

August Rush (2007)

Someone told me and my sister about this movie, as being nice, and interesting to present to music students (10 yo). I took the chance to watch it too. And although there is a lot I can argue about (namely to someone learn how to write music from a single explanation of the position of […]

Bohemian Rhapsody

No, I will not complain on the lip sync from the actors, or the details that did not happen as described in the movie. It should not be seen as a documentary, but as a Drama based on a true story. Just like Ben-Hur and a lot of other movies, that are based on true […]

Maigret in Montmartre

This is the fourth episode, in case you consider this a series, or the third sequel (well, terminology), and the one I liked the least. I am not sure if because I knew the story (I’ve read the book) or if my predisposition was just different this time. The cast is great, the acting good, […]

Maigret – Night at the Crossroad (S02E01)

Third third episode of Maigret’s series, with Atkinson, is great. Not just the plot, from Simenon’s original story, but for the way the scenes are recorded. I know this is being typical for every episodes, as the series goes on, but I just think this one is the best. Great scenarios. Great imaging details. As […]

Maigret’s Dead Man (2016)

For the second episode, or second movie, as you prefer, of Maigret, with Atkinson as Chief Inspector Jules Maigret, it wasn’t so strange to see Mr Bean as a serious character. In fact, given he is older, and not grinning with that stupid smile, I can bare him as a serious character. Regarding the movie […]

Logan (2017)

It is quite weird when you want to watch a super hero movie, with action and some fun, and you get a drama. You still have the superheroes, but old and decrepit. And when you lost your mother a couple days ago, it gets even sad. Specially as (spoilers…) both old and decrepit heroes end […]

Red Sparrow (2018)

For some time that I did not watch a movie. And this is something I am ashamed of, but when I downloaded Red Sparrow I was expecting a Marvel movie. Sorry, I am no big fan of the comic books, and some of the character names are unknown for me. Well, guess what, no, it […]

Maigret Sets a Trap (2016)

Well, first the obvious: seeing Rowan Atkinson in a serious role is kind of difficult at first. But you get used to it, and Rowan shows he is not just Mr. Bean. Regarding the movie itself: getting a known character from a book series is quite hard. If one can try to find an actor […]
