Lucy ****

Lucy-poster-scarlett-johansson-movie

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 *****

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*!

 

Draft Day *****

The pitch:

At the NFL Draft, general manager Sonny Weaver has the opportunity to rebuild his team when he trades for the number one pick. He must decide what he’s willing to sacrifice on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with NFL dreams.

To be honest if you are not an American Sport fan you will probably not really understand why I loved this movie! For the others it’s such a great story about the day a team manager have to do choices!

In this movie even if you think he will do what you think he will… it’s still going to the end of the game! It’s even perfect because the overtime is used to the max!

I loved this movie and so it deserve its 5* because it was simply entertaining perfectly! If you are into American Football, Baseball or Basketball it’s for you! Same just if you are into sport in general as the strategy showed here is something!

Enjoy it!

The Purge Anarchy ****

The pitch:

“A couple are driving home when their car breaks down just as the Purge commences. Meanwhile, a police sergeant goes out into the streets to get revenge on the man who killed his son, and a mother and daughter run from their home after assailants destroy it. The five people meet up as they attempt to survive the night in Los Angeles.”

Honestly this movie is about the craziest shittiest dumbest idea politician can come with but in a way you think “This shit could happen”!

The background of the story is sick! The idea is sick! The movie is Brilliant! Not crazy but it keeps you on your toe and depict our fucked up society if everything was possible for a limited time. Honestly I don’t think it would go elsewhere!

Ok the movie is not for everybody and some of you might think that it’s the shittiest movie they’ve seen! Personally I think there was space for improvement but the movie is nice! 

Need for Speed ****

A video game is entertaining and challenging… A movie is only entertaining…

What if you do a movie about a video game? Well I just watched Need for Speed and I do have to say if not challenging it was… Entertaining!

If you know and like the game there is no reason you won’t like the movie. I’m in that case and so give 4* because it’s a cool movie! Not a revolution not an amazing story but just a good entertaining movie like I like it!

47 Ronin ****

The pitch: A band of samurai set out to avenge the death and dishonor of their master at the hands of a ruthless shogun.

This movie seems to have not produce the effect that it was meant for! I so don’t care! The movie is not an epic crazy Feudal Japanese story but a lovely memory of this time!

The story of those samurai (and an outsider in Keanu Reeves) who goes against the rules and straight to death to revenge their master is great! The work on the atmosphere is great! Ok sometimes it’s a bit slow but you are  so immerse in the Japan of that time that it doesn’t matter…

To resume if you are a fan of Call of Duty and movies like Transformers and Iron Man it might be boring and the FX might not be enough. If you love, like I do, the Japanese samurai  and shogun time than you will enjoy this movie!
