Suburbicon — This twisted little tale with delight some and bore others — 8*/10

This is not for everyone. This piece by George Clooney is excellent, but a lot of people might think it weird and too low key. The story is solid, the acting great and the plot gets thicker with each passing moment. Great ending.

Matt Damon, Julianne Moore

The Foreigner — Solid action movie — 6*/10

I have to say that the premise feels weak and forced, with almost any other subject it would have felt better. That being said, the acting is great, the action realistic, the intrigue interesting and the tension solid.

Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan.

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women — A compelling romance — 8*/10

It's simply told, but the story itself is anything but, even today. It presents kinky and non-monogamous relationships for the whole world to see and, more importantly, to understand. It doesn't go in depth, but it definitely is compelling. It doesn't contain any action, but it doesn't have any flaws either. A quiet strong romance. A solid biography.

Rebecca Hall and Bella Heathcote.

Blade Runner 2049 — It's simply mind-blowing, see it — 10*/10

I don't understand how critics can give it a bad review. Unless you don't like long movies or anything to do with sci-fi, you have to at least be entertained.

In this master piece by Denis Villeneuve, produced by Ridley Scott, mood is everything. Yes, there are long scenes where few things happen, but so what, it's delicious if you stop to enjoy it.

It's close to perfection. Just see it. In IMAX, because the sound and the visual are spectacular. Avoid 3D.

Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Ana de Armas and Jared Leto.

Synopsis & information:

American Made — Excellent and very entertaining biographical movie — 9*/10

Superb photography, great development, perfect acting and extremely interesting story with a solidly made ending. It's crazy, without much violence or any bloodbath. Most people will love it.

Tom Cruise.

Synopsis & information:

The LEGO Ninjago Movie — Good but disappointing — 6*/10

To my taste, it contains too many real elements, or I should say some elements from the real world are too present onscreen. I think it breaks the mood. Plus, there are too many long speeches.

That being said, I think it's funny and entertaining.

Jackie Chan, Dave Franco, Fred Armisen and Michael Peña.

Potiche — Une belle comédie qui nous pousse à l'égalitarisme — 8*/10

Drôle, très bien pensé, légèrement intellectuel, c'est une belle pièce qui nous mène à penser à la place des femmes dans notre société patriarcale. J'ai adoré.

Catherine Deneuve, Gérard Depardieu et Fabrice Luchini.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle — Good, but not as good as the first one — 7*/10

Although several of the ideas that make this new chapter are good, some aren't and the novelty has worn off. The first one (read my review here) was a little bit more fleshed out and surprising. This one is just flashy. Still, it's good entertainment.

Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Elton John and Jeff Bridges.
