  • No Emotion — for Equals
    Written by chrissnow on 11.10.2017

    Decent science fiction film.
    We are in the future, in a society where sentiments have been banished (canceled) and human beings (if you can still consider them) live without experiencing emotions.
    But a disease (seen as the plague and treated as such) arouses emotions that are now well-suited; the film focuses on Silas (Nicholas Hoult) who finds himself at the first stage of the disease. He falls in love with Nia (Kristen Stewart), who, unlike him, tries to hide the onset of symptoms.
    Interesting is the idea of ​​treating feelings as a very serious infectious disease, but it is at times as slow as the spectator, like the protagonists, has to adapt to these new and upsetting sensations. At some point it is likely to become a Romeo and Juliet with a couple of quotes and not just that.
    Discreet the finale in which the saying prevails: No one is stronger than love.
    In the rest of the cast to be cited by Guy Pearce as Jonas, the one who introduces Silas into a kind of support group like Anonymous Alcoholics, Jacki Weaver is Bess.

    Agent K (Ryan Gosling) is a replicant of the latest generation used to hunt the old rebel Nexus replicants. The discovery of a box buried under a tree near the farm of his last job will lead him to an investigation that will affect his future and the thoughts of his condition.
    The film retains the atmospheres and doubts of the original with a host of great new characters; we find replicants that begin to have a conscience and are hard to distinguish from human beings.
    To mention K's virtual companion, a gorgeous Joi (Ana de Armas seen in the recent Overdrive) that will fall in love with the male audience; the founder of Wallace Industries (the company that produces the latest generation replicants) Neander Wallace (Jared Leto) with the help of the right arm Luv (Sylvia Hoeks in "The Best Offer") is ambitious.
    K will meet Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) to try to clarify some of the details that emerged during his investigations.
    The only defect in the film is its slowness, occasionally the rhythm slows down abruptly (maybe a little too) as if it should reflect on the condition of the replicants.
    In the rest of the cast to be cited by Robin Wright as Lieutenant Joshi, K Head; Dave Bautista ("The Guardians of the Galaxy") is Sapper Morton, the Nexus replicant that starts the entire movie.

    A fucked up nihilistic greasy runaway on the dark side of the psyche: a bullshit artist movie with bullshit artists actors. If you don't like grease, what the f*ck scenarii, grease, killers, grease, insults, grease, rat-headed penises, grease, dancing, grease, disco, grease, and most of all ultra absurd humor, don't look at this. and oooooooh by the way: "what are these chips made from?"
    Please suit your sexiest disco pink jacket and listen to disco music during 3 days at least before looking at this alien sh*tstorm movie.
    Credibility accured by Sundance festival: the greasy strangler is the "sundance most what the f*ck movie of 2016"

    Interesting horror that also had good critical reviews.
    The prologue in which a terrified girl escapes from a mysterious individual can not be seen; the girl does not do fine.
    After this introduction, action and attention shifted to Jay (Maika Monroe, also seen in Independence Day), a normal girl from the province who comes out with her boyfriend. The two, after they left the movie where the boy was terrified of something, have a sexual relationship; after which he narcoses Jay, binds it to a chair, and tells her that he has sent a kind of curse to her. He is persecuted by an evil entity who follows him everywhere and the only way to free it is to have sex with another person.
    After these facts, one would expect the film to end in trivial sexual relations instead the film keeps on a good level of tension without too much jolting in the chair but with the attention always denying to Jay and the spectator. Sex is left in the background (for example, when Jay finds two bathers on a beach) and the spectator, like Jay, tends to look thick behind. Interesting is the final idea of ​​Jay's friend.
    The film does not give too much explanation of the origin of "thing", letting the mystery give more tension to the vision; perhaps it will be deepened in a possible sequel, which saw the success of the film could become possible. With my only certainty that at the present time I would have very little chance of being prey to this "curse."

    Decent Pixar movie, followed by (or spinoff) of "Finding Nemo".
    In fact, in this film, the protagonist is the distorted Dory who will be looking for his parents lost for a long time.
    In his research he will be able to count on the help of Nemo and his father Marlin but also of other protagonists, some intruders in the first episode other unpublished, including the rainy Hank.
    Cute start with the poor Dory who loses contact with her parents and suffering from short term memory loss can no longer find the way home; even asking for directions and receiving help will not be easy.
    Some nice and cute scenes, the film has a standard breakthrough by taking a step below other Pixar movies; as usual humans are just in the background or seen as threats (terrible scene in the tactile touch tank where the hands of children are seen as dangerous threats). It emphasizes the importance of friendship and that any physical (or mental) defect should not limit our abilities and our goals. Nice and a bit annoying the two sea lions; even animals other than Dory have some flaws like Destiny, the whale shark a bit short, Becky, the bird a bit rough but that will give a big hand in the search.
