Películas mitad veinte diecisiete

General — Jueves 29 de Junio de 2017, 17:50


Toneladas de películas (la utilización de una medida de peso y no de cantidad es para dar efecto (?)) desde la última vez, pero creo que sólo porque pasó mucho tiempo, ya que también hay quintillones de anotadas nuevas (la utilización ahora sí de un número para la cantidad es sólo para ser internamente inconsistente).

  • A Perfect Day: +1. Gran historia (grandes actores), y me gustó como muestra un universo que no conozco y que no me toca.
  • Air: -0. Con algunos detalles interesantes, pero nada nuevo.
  • Amy: -1. No me gustó para nada la forma en que estaba "armado" el documental, era como la versión video de un diario amarillista. No la pude terminar de ver, y eso que algunas partes eran interesantes.
  • Anesthesia: -0. Tiene algunas partes MUY interesantes, pero es en general aburrida hasta más de la primera mitad, sin terminar de enganchar con las situaciones, y luego termina... abruptamente, sin resolver la mayoría de las cosas.
  • Black Mass: -0. La historia tiene sus detalles interesantes, pero me pasó lo mismo que con otras pelis basadas en una historia real, no tiene "sustento", le falta dinámica de película, no sé... como que no empieza ni termina, es floja en ese sentido.
  • Chloe & Theo: +1. Hermosa peli, pura enseñanza.
  • Crimson Peak: +0. Una de fantasmas, pero bien hecha... por eso creo que mejor diría "una CON fantasmas", no "DE".
  • Deadpool: +0. Sátira de superheroe, me divertí mucho.
  • Doctor Strange: +1. Divertida, interesante, buenas actuaciones y efectos. Me gustó el personaje en sí, también (yo no lo conocía).
  • Experimenter: -0. La info de fondo está buena, pero la película en sí no me gustó nada; creo que prefiero un documental sobre esa persona y su trabajo, antes que algo así aburrido
  • Ghost in the Shell: -0. No vale la pena. Si querés ver la historia bien armada, mirá Kôkaku Kidôtai (el manga original) , y si la querés ver a Scarlett Johansson actuando mirá Lost in Translation (y si la querés ver en pelotas mirá Under the Skin).
  • Hotel Transylvania 2: +0. Todo lo que podés esperar de una peli para chicos.
  • Jane Got a Gun: -0. La película no está mal, pero al final como que no te deja nada.
  • Jason Bourne: -0. Es movida y atrapante, pero no hay nada nuevo en la historia. Un "más de lo mismo" en su máxima expresión. Nunca más.
  • Momentum: -1. Aburrida en un montón de partes (lo cual para una peli de acción es mucho), pero lo que me colmó el vaso es esa forma burda de dejar la historia "pendiente" hasta una próxima película.
  • Now You See Me 2: +1. Muy divertida, aunque le falta un poco de sustancia como a la original.
  • Point Break: -0. Tiene algunas enseñanzas piolas, montañas, y pasiajes hermosos... pero el resto es más escenas de motocross que guión :/
  • Regression: +0. Interesante por la temática y cómo te iba llevando sin entender del todo qué pasaba; cierra un poco floja, pero zafa.
  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: +0. Está buena, pero más que nada por lo que cuenta y el universo en el que está embebido, después la peli tiene muchas fallas. Sospecho (temo?) que empezarán a salir mil películas satélites a la historia principal con calidades cada vez más bajas (como están haciendo con las de superheroes)...
  • Space Station 76: -0. Una película mediocre ambientada en una (muy interesante y divertida, sí) estética "sci fi de los '70)
  • Spectre: +0. Movida, sin dar respiro, y con buena fotografía, pero no se escapa de ser "solamente una más de James Bond"
  • Star Trek Beyond: +1. Sigue funcionando, continua con ese ese espíritu de las series originales que, a mi entender y gusto, hace que valgan la pena.
  • The Gunman: +0. La típica del muchacho que era malo, luego bueno, luego mata todos los malos. Pero está bien llevada, muestra una cara de las multinacionales en paises del tercer mundo, es llevadera.
  • The Man from U.N.C.L.E.: +0. Peli de espías de los 60/70. Los agentes de CIPOL, bah. Pasatista, disfrutable, con escenas memorables. Si veías la serie vieja supongo que te va a gustar mucho más.
  • The Zero Theorem: -0. Sorprendentemente aburrida para ser tan bizarra.
  • X-Men: Apocalypse: +0. Es más de lo mismo, pero me gustó la forma en que entrelazan todas las historias en la "cronología X-Men" y van explicando como se formó todo; estaría bueno que en algún momento hagan algo así con el universo Tolkien.
