The Gentlemen [2020] ★★★

After “King Arthur” and last year’s “Aladdin”, Guy Ritchie finds himself revisiting old grounds in “The Gentlemen”. It’s not the director’s best work, but it has all the right ingredients to satisfy his loyal followers. A great ensemble cast? Check. An intriguing story? Check. Richie’s usual trademark? Double […]

Like A Boss [2020] ★

This painfully unfunny comedy, courtesy of Miguel Arteta, is easily the worst film of the decade so far. Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne are wasted as Bffs who run a small, local cosmetics company. Enter Claire Luna (Salma Hayek, so bad), a giant in the industry who offers […]

Richard Jewell [2019] ★★★

The Grudge [2020] ★½

It’s January, which means we either get an Oscar contender or a movie that nobody asked for. Case in point: “The Grudge”, a lazy attempt at reviving a franchise that was dormant for many years now. Still, I gave this film a chance to prove me wrong, especially […]

1917 [2019] ★★★½

I don’t use the word “immersive” lightly, but that’s probably the best way to describe Sam Mendes’ masterful “1917”. From the first frame to the last, Mendes and his cinematographer, the legendary Roger Deakins, have managed to pull-off the impossible: follow two soldiers (in what seems to be […]
