A film by Edgar Wright
Cast: Ansel Elgort, Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm
Yeah! you heard right his name is “B-A-B-Y, Baby” (Ansel Elgort). He’s the nearly silent getaway driver for a robbery syndicate managed by Doc (Kevin Spacey), who stages the heist, hires the criminals and puts them in the hand of baby. Yes there are flashbacks of the life about baby and you come to find out why he is this way. He is an experience driver since a young age. Oh! I almost forgot his world is, his music depending of what mood he is in. Yes there are cars chases that are so cool and outragious, gun fight, and some funny moments at times. It is so cool and enjoyable as hell. There are countless action scenes scored to pop or rock songs. And yes there is a little romance going at times that where baby tries to go straight after being square with the doc. Of course a little predictable but who care you will have octane flowing in you veins from beginning to finish.
You are going to love it so much that you will see it again. That is all folks.

A film by Ridley Scott
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup
Alien: Covenant is a sequel to Prometheus (2012) and the second instalment of the Alien prequel series. The story takes place years ago after the events in the previous film following a new group of characters who’re on an expedition to an uncharted planet carrying a large number of colonists in hibernation. However due to a signal in space they land on an other planet that seems habitable but something is off, and very quickly the crew began to regret their decision.
Katherine Waterston stars as Daniels, one of the crew members of the Covenant ship soon to be heroin. Michael Fassbender portraying a new android character named Walter who’s part of the Covenant crew, after all he is the keeper of the ship while the crew sleep. Billy Crudup plays Christopher Oram the captain of the crew. The performance here are fine here as well as the visual where Scoot does not disappoint. They will be answers in this one that is going to make sense. It provides answers to the origins of Alien. It is a bit horrifying to be trap in confined spaces in space with this monster that wants to kill everything on his path. The film’s pace is slow at first to develop the characters so you get to know them and where they come from. The special effects are awesome in this one Scott here went all out as expected, other than that it is fine.
A film by Gabriele Mainetti
Cast: Claudio Santamaria, Luca Marinelli, Ilenia Pastorelli
English: They called him Jeeg Robot
Ok here is a Italian film that was released in 2015 we just got it in France on the big screen today. C’est la vie. The english title however is going to be They call me Jeeg Robot.
Enzo (Claudio Santamaria), a small-time criminal who makes ends meet on a daily basis, pick-pocketing and so on a small fish staying out of the gaze of the bigger fish. One day, after being chase by the police Enzo hides along the side of the bay in the water. After being sick and vomiting black goop, Enzo discovers he can suddenly resist almost any impact, he is super-strong, and his wounds heals fast. So he uses his newfound powers the best way he knows: By ripping an ATM machine with his bare hands, well after all he is a criminal so therefore it is going to be easy for him to make money.
Alessia is a girl with a mental disorder who escapes reality by continuously watching the Jeeg Robot anime and relating everything to it. Somehow because of her the emotional wall that Enzo has been building around him is going to crash slowly. In the mix you put in an other gang headed by Fabio who see things in big. Here it is not you standard super hero story. It is funny at times and dark the next, than sad and so on. Jeeg Robot totally cleaned up at the Italian Oscars, getting sixteen nominations out of a possible twenty-four, and winning seven of them, including all four acting categories. The thing is here they left it open for a second one or more which I hope to see them made.
A film by James Gunn
Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Kurt Russell, Sylvester Stallone
This is going to be a dazzling action-packed sci-fi extravaganza. As I am going to try to write a dazzling review. Nothing is lost here it is still fun with some great music to go with it.
After a brief scene set in 1980 Missouri with a miraculously digitally young Kurt Russell, the action battle in the adventurous spirit and risk-taking of the central characters. Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), makes a living as intergalactic bounty hunters. After a toe-tapping battle sequence featuring a giant Lovecraftian squid and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) dating to the Electric Light Orchestra’s Mr. Blue Sky, the team is forced to divide. There they Meet Ego (Kurt Russell) and will take them to his dazzling planet which Ego will provide any question that provide answers to Star-Lord’s questions. And there begins the extravaganza of beautiful scenery colourful as hell with jokes along the way with great tunes from the 80’s.Watch out for Sylvester Stallone in a cameo.
Visually stunning, the film is a blast: a joyous sci-fi fantasy filled with weird and wonderful characters, goofy humour and a plot that offers just the right blend of emotional je ne sais quoi. Someone has a lot of imagination here and that is a good thing. Vol. 3 please.
A film by Rupert Sanders
Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Pilou Asbæk, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche
Here is an adaptation of Shirow Masume’s original manga cult comics. In the near future Major is one of the kind after a crash they were able to save her brain but gave her a synthetic body. her purpose in life is to catch criminals.
Not too bad for a science fiction film here a robot with a human brain. Can they think like a human and if so will she able to do the job that they want her to do. There is a share parallel with Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner however the visual is stunning and colourful the story is developed like a thriller like a film Neo-noir. The Asian-inspired City is filled, tall and tightly metallic buildings peppered with bright neon holographic signboards. It feels like the 80’s but in the future like A retro 80’s futuristic. As the story moves along Major (Scarlett Johansson) gets some kind of a glitch now and then. As she is after a hacker who tried to kill some officials the glitches gets worse. The skin-tight latex suit that Johansson wear and even the other outfit are outstanding. For me how ever it feels like I already saw that film some where. I was left there could be more like a twist in the story. Maybe it is just me.
A film by James Gray
Cast: Charlie Hunnam, Tom Holland, Sienna Miller
The true story of Percival Harrison Fawcett, one of the greatest explorers of the twentieth century. Percy Fawcett is a recognized British colonel and a loving husband. In 1906, when he was about to become a father, the Royal Geographical Society of England proposed to him to leave to Amazonia in order to map the borders between Brazil and Bolivia. Right a way , the man has a passion for exploration and discovers traces of what he thinks is a very old lost city. Back in England, Fawcett constantly thinks of this mysterious civilization, torn between his love for his family and his thirst for exploration and glory …
Here is a stroke a genius where James Gray reappropriates a genre fallen into disuse to offer us the masterful portrait of an explorer carried by his thirst for adventure.Here Gray choose to do an interpretation of the novel La cité perdue de Z écrit par David Grann. It is no secret that Gray makes the viewer follow the adventure of the military man names Fawcett that disappeared somehow into the jungle never to return to England. James Gray’s latest feature film is a beautiful scenario built around Percy Fawcett’s (Charlie Hunnam’s) back and forth between his home and the heart of the Amazon jungle. Here Gray shot this film à la classic mode the only thing to do to me otherwise the film will fall into the water. Fawcett is not crazy to go to the amazon forest but to reclaim his tile of his name he decided to go which trigger his thirst for adventure and exploration as well as glory. Charlie Hunnam here does a superb job to incarnate his character.It is interesting to see that Fawcett also has other obligations, well he is a husband and father which his wife makes the sacrifices here and is beautifully interpreted by actress Sienna Miller. You see he returns to his home, after several years of travel so it takes a toll on his wife. He has a hard time with the children. The cinematography here is near perfect. I can’t wait until his next picture.
