Resumen veraniego de películas
Sábado, 18 Febrero 2017
Muchas, muchas películas vistas. Igual no entro en ritmo en ver más; estoy complicado en encontrar ese par de horas en que los niños están tranquilos y yo no estoy muy cansado :p
- Alice Through the Looking Glass: +0. Divertida, un flash, pero tampoco mucho más que una colección de momentos interesantes.
- All Is Lost: -0. La supervivencia de alguien con una seguidilla de malas suertes; mirala sólo si te interesa esto de "estar solo y sobrevivir como se pueda".
- Captain America: Civil War: +0. La típica pelea entre superheroes, pero no se me hizo pesada; de bonus tiene una temática interesante de pensar, sobre el control de gobiernos sobre las armas.
- Clouds of Sils Maria: -0. Aunque tiene muchas charlas interesantes, la historia en sí no tiene ritmo, y no va a ningún lado.
- Danny Collins: +0. Linda historia, no del todo esperado lo que sucede, emotiva, bien armada.
- El Ardor: +0. Buena la historia, buena la ambientación, y creo que muestra bien una realidad que conocemos muy poco.
- Ex Machina: -0. No me gustó, pero no sé bien por qué. ¿Le faltó suspenso? ¿Muy plana? Lo que plantean a nivel inteligencia artificial está bien, sin embargo (me hubiese gustado más profundidad, pero bueno, es una película para las masas, no un documental).
- Fantastic Four: -0. Un punto de vista diferente del clásico, pero bleh.
- Home Sweet Hell: -0. Con sus partes muy graciosas, pero la historia no llega a ser.
- La Vénus à la fourrure: +1. La dinámica entre dos personas, la linea entre la realidad y la ficción. Me encantó.
- Laggies: +0. Apenas lenta, pero buena historia, buen desarrollo, me gustó como muestra la evolución de la decisión del personaje principal.
- Match: +0. Linda historia, buenas actuaciones. Potente.
- Nina: +1. Mis más grandes respetos para Zoe Saldaña. Maravillosa. Deslumbrante. Me gustaría saber qué piensa una o un fan de Nina Simone sobre esta película.
- Pan: -0. Una versión distinta del clásico, bastante renovada, no me llegó a atrapar.
- Pixels: +0. Divertida y pasatista, me gustó estando Adam Sandler y todo. Tampoco es la gran cosa, eh, pero es más que nada piola en función de los videojuegos viejos...
- Predestination: +1. Muy buena historia, no vas entendiendo de qué va hasta que te enroscó y después ya caiste en la (buena) trampa.
- Stealing Beauty: -0. Una linda historia, una maravillosa fotografía, pero le falta "consistencia", es muy etérea, no sé. Y lenta.
- The November Man: -0. Una de acción y espías wannabe, no mucho.
- The Right Kind of Wrong: +0. Sólo una comedia romántica, pasatista, pero divertida.
- Time Lapse: +1. LA historia no es muy profunda, pero maneja muy bien la temporalidad (o los saltos en la misma...).
- Under the Skin: -1. Hay una historia, ahí, pero la película es EXTREMADAMENTE lenta :(.
- VANish: -0. Bruta, violenta, y cruda. Pero nada más.
- Vice: -0. Con algunos dejos de temática interesante, en la que podrían haber incursionado sobre la parte conceptual de los robots, pero la película va por otro lado.
Un montonazo para ver! Y eso que no estoy encontrando un buen lugar para enterarme de los trailers que van saliendo. Por ahora estoy usando este canal de YouTube, pero no tiene todo. Me sugirieron IMDb, también, pero aunque tiene algunas cosas que el otro no, tiene muy poco y no parece estar del todo bien ordenado.
