The Social Network (2010)
As complex as a David Fincher movie can be, and probably the movie that defined this decade.
When this movie ends tells us that Facebook has 500 million users, this was the figure in 2010, 10 years later this figure was tripled and now there are more than 2 billion people registered in this social network, it can be said that this film talks about the theme that defined this decade of 10s "social networks" although its height began in the 2000s, it is obvious that its frenetic growth happened during this decade, it could also be said that The Social Network defined the decade, as Fight Club defined the decade of the 90s, touching issues of importance and relevance of the time, both making an accurate and deep portrait of their respective generations.
David Fincher creates a film as intelligent and cold as his main character, although the story can be reliable and not yet, since Mark Zuckerberg himself has said that the most accurate of this film is the use of his character's clothes , the other characters in the story and even Sorkin and Fincher indicate otherwise, The Social Network is not a documentary, it can be taken as a work of fiction that recreates a situation of betrayals and pure frivolity, does not give us information that we should take as totally correct since it has a certain tone of the famous Rashomon effect; which is that several people testify to a fact until the original version is so eclipsed that it is impossible to find a truth among so many points of view.
This movie is undermined by pure irony; Harvard's least associative boy with no knowledge about human relationships creates the greatest source of communication between people today, and the film ends with the creator of Facebook himself waiting that his friend's request to be answered. The direction of Fincher and the script of Sorkin make this film look like a thriller, a dark thriller, when in one of its many layers it is a film about envy and teenage immaturity, one of the greatest qualities of the films of Fincher is that they are very complex, and can cover as many topics as they want.
The Social Network with Se7en, Fight Club and Zodiac joins the list of masterpieces created by the hand of David Fincher, one of the artists more prolific of the seventh art.
Although I almost never talk about such repetitive themes as the interpretations in my reviews, since it is obvious when the performances are good and not, and most of the reviews say the same about that, but this time the young actors who keep this movie afloat deserve a line of recognition or more.
Dear Basketball (2017)
A universal motivational story
Obviously you will feel identified with this, whether you are a basketball fan or not, whether you are a Kobe Bryant fan or not, it is simply a conventional short film that plays the right keys to create melancholy feelings in us, superficially speaking of inspiration, perseverance and our constant struggle to fulfill our dreams, but there really is nothing new here, we already know that old story, obviously you will love it if you are a fan of Bryant and this short will probably make you cry, but if we see more objectively It is out of level Oscar's I didn't let Kobe Bryant's sudden death just a couple of hours ago eclipse my vision of this, I saw it objectively and found nothing exceptional, if not a story of universal motivation, a message that can be expressed by any profession, a filmmaker I could do something like this and call it "Dear Cinema" is a love story for the profession, any profession.
Mission: Impossible (1996)
dePalma save this movie, not Tom Cruise
Most user reviews say that Tom Cruise saved the movie, however I think Brian dePalma is the one who deserves all the credit, the style of the filmmaker makes this movie does not fall into cliches of action movies, there are some that other scenes full of cliches of spy movies like the initial scene but technically no movie of this genre has such a good direction as this movie, dePalma creates sequences that remind the thriller master Hitchcock, and thanks to this the movie has some scenes that overflow the suspense and intrigue, but as I said before it is thanks to the skills of dePalma and his stimulation of our perception with dynamic shots that disturb our senses.
The story is difficult to follow with the naked eye, however the more you think it is the less complicated it is, I guess I only have to see it one more time to get some details to overlook. The film's title is true to its history, totally impossible, 100% of the action scenes are impossible to perform in reality, I read in the book by Robert McKee about the script that all films must comply with the rules of their own established universe, this movie is set in a universe where these things are possible so I don't see any problem there, the biggest problem of the movie is that the scenes of the movie without action are empty, there is no interesting story to tell and it seems impatient to jump to the next sequence of action so that the film entertains us again.
The Founder (2016)
They had the idea but they didn't know how to execute it, Ray Kroc made it happen
Ray Kroc did not steal McDonald's empire, just like Mark Zuckerberg on The Social Network, Ray formed the idea into an empire, something that the McDonald brothers and the Winklevoss brothers would'nt have achieved due to lack of ambition and greed, the two values least ethical but more productive for society. So we should thank Ray for expanding to this level the largest fast food line in the world, however Ray Crok is in the minor leagues of selfish and twisted characters, compared to Jordan Belfort, Gordon Gekko, or his greatest analogue; Mark Zuckerberg.
If the film was not so interested in staying under the shadow of the great films of this genre and if i had tried to find its own vision, it would have triumphed much more, unfortunately John Lee Hancock directs conventionally and Robert Siegel writes a rather dysfunctional and full of cliches script.
The final scene is the biggest demonstration of Crok's cruelty, he is preparing a speech in which he will fool an entire country and seems to be very calm, repeats self-help phrases and is with his new wife, who took it from one of his partners, in these few minutes Ray becomes a memorable character, if the film had portrayed Ray Crok in this way throughout history the result would have been more interesting.
A Ghost Story (2017)
A metaphysical journey that evokes the thought about life after death.
Personally, I consider this film a true narrative and technical achievement, it seems to me that telling a story through images without the use of dialogues is the most complicated thing for filmmakers, that is exactly what this film does; its actors are so expressive and the camera moves so well that it speaks for itself, each frame of this movie speaks more than a thousand words. Among its technical beauty lies a very deep story about life and death, have you ever wondered if there is life after death? probably if there were something after all this, it would be much sadder than life itself, this is a perfect portrait of this situation; thinking while you see how your existence is being forgotten, resign yourself to the passage of time, and discover that life is only a small period of time and death is eternal.
Jojo Rabbit (2019)
We all have some humanity deep within ourselves.
The reason why critics are hating this movie is the same reason that the public loves it, it is a satire about one of the most terrible moments in human history, these stories must be told as seriously as possible in the world, at this time that people are hypersensitive, film critics sometimes take movies from fun for this kind of thing. JoJo Rabbit begins as a conventional comedy that discouraged me in the first moment with a caricatured representation of Adolf hitler, however with the development of the film, Hitler who is only the imaginary friend of JoJo takes radical attitudes and becomes the antagonist of the story at any given time. The first minutes with the children's camp, the friendly instructor and the symmetry of the frame reminded me a lot of Moonrise Kingdom, obviously Waititi owes Wes Anderson a lot when making this movie, JoJo Rabbit makes a sudden change after the first Act of the film, when an intense drama is introduced that makes the film more and more entertaining, knows how to lighten things with a touch of black comedy, and make them intense at the same time.
Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019)
the same as always in the MCU
It is supposed to Endgame was the end of a phase in Marvel so that Far from home opened another with many changes, but it remains the same, the same formula that obviously will never change, jokes without grace, absurd stories. If this is supposed to be an evolution for the MCU, where are the changes? Perhaps they plan to continue following the same formula for another 10 years and make another film that supposedly closes a cycle. That was Endgame, an end to something but an end of what? The ridiculous excuse of being the closing to a saga of 20 movies but is there really a difference now? You yourself may notice that no. What I see here is a door to 10 more years of movies and repetitive series, I do not lie, Marvel confirmed a lot of projects that will arrive in the next few years and invade our ticket offices until who knows when Who could get excited for a movie of these people, When are all the same? Anyway, Far From Home is a ridiculous movie that I can say that the best thing he has is his villain that is not the big thing, this seems like a mediocre film about exaggerated romances of adolescence. Take some mediocre Netflix "teen" movie and give the protagonist super powers, you have Far From Home !Great¡ This I am writing after Spidey supposedly should leave the MCU and the truth that makes me happy, this version of Spiderman is rubbish.
Love, Death & Robots: The Witness (2019)
Could have gone better
I dare to say that this is the best directed episode of the series so far I really seemed more appreciable than the first episode, has very good surrealist touches and incredible approaches with a animation work with a lot of cinematographic style, the problem here is the story; predictable, pretentious and boring. But I must highlight the great animation work, I would like to see this style ever in an animated movie.
