Baywatch — The previews are better than the movie — 5*/10

Too many dead moments, without impact or just not funny. Many good ideas, but poorly executed. It could have been great.

Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.

Alien: Covenant — Oh, it just gets so creepy... Loved it — 8*/10

Welcome back to the real creepiness of the Alien world. The overall sense of never being safe is finally truly back. Gotta love it.

Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup and Danny McBride (finally showing us his acting skills).

Synopsis & information:

Les 3 p'tits cochons 2 — Rigolo et sentimental à la fois — 6*/10

Amusant avec un peu plus de profondeur émotionnelle que le premier (lire ma critique ici). Il perd un peu du comique, l'histoire est moins bien étoffée et la fin est moins intéressante bien que l'épilogue soit bien fait. Reste que c'est un bon divertissement.

Paul Doucet, Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge, Patrice Robitaille, Isabel Richer et Sophie Prégent.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword — A fantasy fix that's really cheap — 5*/10

Sorry, but the end result is really lame. With the money spent on it, it's a shame. The only good things are the special effects.

Ghost in the Shell — A great sci-fi that sadly departs from the original — 8*/10

I prefer the original, because of the story, the introspection and the soundtrack. So, I'm very much biased. I also don't like the posture and the walk they gave her, too hunched back, too robotic.

The departure from the original is understandable, but sad. So is the loss of the moody soundtrack. Still, we got to hear it once more during the end credits.

Don't watch it in 3D. I unfortunately had too and I would very want to see it again on the big screen in 2D to fully appreciate and get a second, maybe less biased, opinion.

That being said, it's a solid movie with a good story and intrigue. I just don't have the perspective to say if it's great.

Scarlett Johansson and Juliette Binoche.

Synopsis & information:

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 — A great sci-fi epic — 8*/10

Solid fun full of action, mean special effects and great vistas. A few weaknesses, but overall very entertaining.

Keep on watching the credits. There are many clips throughout until the very end.

Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Michael Rooker, Pom Klementieff, Kurt Russell, Sylvester Stallone and Vin Diesel.

Their Finest — A well-rounded comedy with some itty-bitty romance — 8*/10

This is a movie to be proud of. It's funny, interesting, with a strong female role, many witty repartee, a surprising ending and solid acting. Go see it, it's well worth it.

Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy, Richard E. Grant and Jeremy Irons.

L'arnacoeur — Comédie surprenante avec une histoire fort divertissante — 7*/10

Un petit film fort intéressant avec un scénario aux développements parfois inattendus. À prendre à la légère un soir de pluie.
