The pitch:

It was supposed to be a simple job. All Lucy had to do was deliver a mysterious briefcase to Mr. Jang. But immediately Lucy is caught up in a nightmarish deal where she is captured and turned into a drug mule for a new and powerful synthetic drug. When the bag she is carrying inside of her stomach leaks, Lucy’s body undergoes unimaginable changes that unlocks her mind’s full potential 100%. With her new-found powers, Lucy turns into a merciless warrior intent on getting back at her captors. She receives invaluable help from Professor Norman, the leading authority on the human mind, and French police captain Pierre Del Rio.

Well everything is said there… This movie is nice and entertaining. The idea behind is a bit like in Transcendance and as this latest it’s missing a little something…

So all in all watch it, enjoy it and don’t mind the cheap effect at some points… It’s not about that.

Chef-Poster

 

The pitch:

A chef who loses his restaurant job starts up a food truck in an effort to reclaim his creative promise, while piecing back together his estranged family.

If this movie was a recipe it would be a 3 Macaron dish serve in a taco! I absolutely loved it!

The rythm, the ingredients, the atmosphere, the characters, everything was well balanced! It was light but still sometime serious… It has a meaning but only if you want to hear it.

So don’t expect a movie that generation will remember but just a really good time spend in your sofa! For that it worth 5*!
