War horse

USA, 2011 (146 minutes). Director: Steven Spielberg. Performers: Jeremy Irvine, Peter Mullan, Emily Watson, David Thewlis.

War Horse proposes a dramatic journey through different scenes of World War I and follows the steps of a horse that serves as a link between various characters. A film that arrives weighed down by the ternurista glance that Spielberg throws on the story; However, perhaps there is no need to regret a feature that is recurring in the filmmaker and to enjoy his visual talent, present in memorable sequences such as that of the British cavalry advancing among the wheat fields or in visual findings such as the flight of the traveling shell between two trenches and relates two of the protagonists. Thus, for better and for worse, War Horse is nothing more nor less than a Spielberg movie.

The Avengers

USA, 2012 (140 minutes). Director: Joss Whedon. Int .: Robert Downey, Jr. Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner.

The first movie date with the Avengers franchise is a gigantic blockbuster that makes the flag of visual baroqueism to present the star group of the Marvel factory. Of course, it includes tons of showmanship (atop an astonishing sequence shot, heyday of digital technology), but it also offers firmly sketched characters, elaborate winks for comics fans, and a remarkable ability to dose action sequences. . An example of well understood commercial cinema.

Bad land

Badlands. United States, 1973. (95 minutes). Director: Terrence Malick. Performers: Martin Sheen, Sissy Spacek, Stephanie Hodge, Warren Oates.

Terrence Malick’s first film was already revealing a director out of the norm, capable of exploring cinematographic language in depth and soaking his images with an unusual poetic halo. Bad Lands follows two characters facing the world, a couple that combines rebellion and naivety, trapped by love and crime, and who makes flight their vital engine, despite not knowing what they want to escape from. Bad lands is a bitter and terrible work, locked in an exercise of style as lyrical as explosive.

Shaun the sheep. The film: Granjaguedón

A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon. United Kingdom, 2019 (86 minutes). Directors: Will Becher and Richard Phelan.

A new wonder from Aardman Studios, who remain true to their philosophy of using traditional animation in the digital age. It is still amazing that, at the height of Pixar’s conceptualism, the Aardman house wants to sublimate the fact that its characters do not utter a single word and that they are made of modeling clay, the old-fashioned way. The adventures of Shaun the Sheep give off, in all his images, a display of cinephilia, in addition to the magic of true cinema, the conscientiously created, filmed from the heart.
