Películas (y series) de fin de año

General — Lunes 11 de Diciembre de 2017, 17:55


No todo son películas en la vida, también sigo con series... Estoy terminando la quinta temporada de Person of Interest (bastante repetitiva, pero sigue interesante) y me quedan la terceras temporadas de Halt and Catch Fire (pensé que me iba a aburrir un toque pero está muy bien) y Bron/Broen (muy muy buena, con unos personajes bárbaros).

Pregunta, ¿por qué Wikipedia en inglés no mantiene el nombre original de esta última serie, sino que usa la traducción yanqui de la misma? Guarda, che, no les vayan a tocar la dominación cultural de jolivud... Por otro lado, para Wikipedia en danés y en sueco parecen llamarse sólo "el puente", perdiendo también la dualidad que se ve en el título de la serie (y que es tan importante para la misma).

Con los chicos vemos (mezclado con cosas de Encuentro y Paka Paka) al Superagente 86 y Doctor Who (la de este siglo). Con Moni vamos por la segunda de Merlí, Y yo voy mechando por ahí la novena de The Big Bang Theory y la séptima (y última) de Star Trek TNG.

En fin, las películas:

  • 10 Cloverfield Lane: +0. Parece de esas películas previsibles, pero no. Sorprende.
  • 400 Days: -0. Lleva bien la tensión, pero las actuaciones no son buenas... y el desenlace menos.
  • Al final del túnel: +1. Muy buena! Te mantiene agarrado de la silla hasta el final, está muy bien hecha.
  • Amnesiac: -0. Lenta, y aunque da un par de giros interesantes, es más de lo mismo y aburre.
  • Arrival: +1. Hermosa. No, no es una de extraterrestres y militares. Es tanto, tanto más que eso...
  • Blade Runner 2049: +1. La historia no es demasiado densa y no termina de aportar demasiado, pero la fotografía, la música y todo lo conceptual está genial
  • Creative Control: -1. Ni la terminé de ver. La dinámica de los lentes de realidad aumentada y su interfaz no me interesó lo suficiente como para contrarrestar lo soso del resto de la película.
  • Criminal: +0. Tiene momentos interesantes, bastantes, pero le resta que atrasa 20 años con lo de que el malo es tan malo que al final es más bueno que los buenos...
  • Hail, Caesar!: -0. Bizarra, pero no tanto como para ser lo suficientemente entretenida.
  • Hush: +0. La típica de "un loco malo que mata un montón" pero con una vuelta de tuerca que la vuelve interesante
  • Kill Command: -0. iene sus momentos con respecto a la inteligencia artificial y como los robots podrían tomar control, pero le resta mucho que sea tanto de guerra, que tenga demasiados momentos "terminator 1", y encima un final abierto, como si la quisieran continuar...
  • La belle saison: +1. Una hermosa historia de amor y feminismo.
  • Precious Cargo: -1. Tan llena de clichés la primer media hora que la saqué, no había *nada* nuevo.
  • Rock the Kasbah: +0. Una historia divertida y simpática. Para pasar el rato.
  • Snowden: +1. Me gustó mucho, incluso habiendo visto (o quizás eso actuó en favor?) Citizenfour
  • The Face of an Angel: -0. Tiene buenos movimientos, pero no va a ningún lado.
  • The Girl on the Train: +0. La historia está buena, enroscada pero bien... eso sí, la peli es demasiado lenta...
  • The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, y The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2: +0. Lo más interesante de estas tres (dos) continuaciones es todo el relato de lo que sucede a nivel social con la gente, y el rol de la chica con eso y con sus propios temores y lo que la mueve... pero si querés sólo una prelícula de acción también paga, pero para eso solamente es un poco larga.
  • The Huntsman: Winter's War: +0. Es linda, mantiene ritmo, mezcla todo muy bien, pero no deja de ser una de fantasía para adolescentes.
  • The Man Who Knew Infinity: +1. Una película maravillosa, no sólo para los que nos gusta matemática, sino apta para el resto también (y de paso se llevan un poquito sobre lo que es la matemática...).
  • Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets: +0. Es divertida y tiene muchos conceptos para pensar. A nivel gráfico y/o diseño de aliens y "mundos", es impecable. Un poco infantil, algo sexista también. Demasiado romántica.
  • Youth: -1. Tan lenta y sin dirección clara o interesante que me aburrió y la corté a la mitad.
