New Trailer Reviews (#5)

Star Trek: Discovery (Netflix)

Netflix gives Star Trek a go

It’s quite interesting to see the different movie franchises taking the step to the small screen. And here we even get a franchise that started on the small screen, jumped to the big screen and is now leaping back to small screen. And with Netflix it’ll come even to our phone screens. I’m actually excited about this one. It seems great and the production design seems out of this world. I just hope it doesn’t go the way the current Marvel stories are evolving into. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how it’ll go.  

From the Land of the Moon

Marion Cotillard at her best

This movie looks so great. It gives me the feeling of a beautiful European art film. Marion Cotillard is great and is back to what she can do best: deep and dramatic roles. This film will probably rip my heart out, throw it on the ground and stomp all over it. It’s been a long time since seeing such a film that got me really excited, with an interesting story and cast. So I’ll definitely check this one out on the big screen.

Paddington 2

Yes, he’s back

When it was first announced they were making a second Paddington, I was a bit hesitant. I loved the first one so much and I didn’t want them to screw it up. But now after seeing this first teaser I’m actually really excited. Paddington is really sweet and I do have the feeling the family is even more involved in this story. I can’t wait to see what they all get up to and what the story will be all about.

Rough Night

Euhm… What?

This just seems so wrong. It looks like one of those films again. I think they want to make another movie with strong women, to empower us, but I don’t think they are hitting their mark. It seems pushed. It seems strained. This is a perfect movie to watch with my friends on a slow saturday night, but not on the big screen.

Logan Lucky

Steven Soderbergh is here to wauw us again

With a cast of Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, Seth MacFarlane, Adam Driver and Riley Keough, this movie can’t be anything but great. And especially with Steven Soderbergh in the director seat and with this amazing trailer, this is a movie I’ll definitely see in cinema’s. It looks crazy and so much fun and I… Can’t… Wait… 😀

Victoria and Abdul

The queen and her friend invite us

This movie and the story, the story that is known by everyone, this will be a great one. This will touch everybody. This certainly will touch me. And with Dame Judi Dench, you know the acting will be on point. I don’t even want to tell more about it, because this is certainly one I will watch. And the sooner it gets out, the better.

What do you think? Are any of these films on your watchlist? And which ones will you be seeing in cinemas?

Moie review – Lucy

by Luc Besson

by Luc Besson

‘A woman, accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.’ (imdb) (by Luc Besson, 89 min.)

This movie was a non-stop thrilling ride. It was a mix of psychological thriller with lots of action-packed scenes. Lucy had me entertained from the moment the film started and I never had the feeling that it was too long or the story dragged on.

I was raised in a scientific family, so having a movie that is in our world with a science-fiction approach about the capacity of our brains, was a breath of fresh air. It sometimes went a bit far with their theories, but it was an interesting approach to the studies that are currently made about our brains.

Scarlet Johansson was amazing as Lucy. Her character changed a lot during the movie and she made it seem real. Her eyes were important in this and the director thankfully chooses to pull us close on the moments when it was needed and give us space when it helped. It was just a perfect blend of image and sound.

Some choices the director made were a bit far-fetched, for example light coming out of her mouth, and it did pull me out a bit of the story. But it didn’t bother me a lot. Once I got over it, the story pulled me back in and I could enjoy the crazy theory of the director. A film definitely worth seeing!

4 out of 5 stars
