Equity is a movie about women in finance. Shrewdness, ambition and lack of scruples is what one has to possess in order to make more money than one needs. It can be considered "feminist" because it is written and directed by women, but believe me, I don't notice here the lack of logic the movement is full of. [source: imdb.com] Plot The best about Equity is that it has a central female character with substance, almost like in another of my lately favorite movies, Miss Sloane. … [Read more...]

They had to do it, Wonder Woman is a symbol proving in an hypothetical way what one of the strongest and insulting currents today claims, that men are useless, or better said, a strong woman doesn't need a man. I would have preferred a story less feminist, but this wasn't the only weak point in yet another DC Comics super production.

A Dark Song is a horror Irish drama released in 2016. It benefited by an incredibly good critic from both professionals and public, as it will receive from me as well.

Going in Style is so incredibly weak and predictable at the same time, that one can think it's just a mockery.

A sort of a variation of a sort of a crime comedy with septuagenarians, like Stand Up Guys, where only Arkin is the common piece, and Al Pacino and Christopher Walken are replaced with Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine. All of them have … [Read more...]
I don't think I have ever watched a super production more stupid and senseless than The Fate of the Furious. It is full of stars and it's so empty, so illogical and so futile, it's incoherent and it's witless. Folks! It's terrible; you know my allergies to junk like The Avengers (which I have labelled trash at least once), but believe me; The Avengers franchise is a masterpiece near this junk.

Our Brand is Crisis, a movie released in 2015, is about politics and the dirty game of winning a Presidential election. It's happening in Bolivia, the former Spanish territory exploited for silver and tin. The name came from "El Libertador", the Venezuelan hero Simon Bolivar. He had a crucial role in the establishment of several South American states' independence from Spanish rule. One of them is Bolivia.
