Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

batman-v-superman-logo-166591

I belong to a generation raised on  Marvel and DC comics. Animated, and then the film adaptation of the same happened to my great satisfaction. As the years passed, and technology advanced, so the adaptations become richer, and lately, it is hard to imagine anything that could not be painted on the big screen. The latest adaptation of DC comic is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it looks and feels great.

FLESH AND BONE

Flesh-and-Bone-main-618

There is a new mini-series on the air and it is about ballet, or should I say ballerinas trying to become Prima. My firs thought was “No way”. Still, the couple of reasons made me watch it. First was my wife, and second was my wife. So it happened that I watched whole 8 hour long episodes in just 24h. There are several reasons for that mini marathon and for the excellence that this series, called Flesh and Bone, brings.

IN THE HEART OF THE SEA

When I was a kid I read a book about monsters. One was very big, white and mighty. Other was small, angry and had a mighty ship. These two monsters fought across the great sea for many days and, in the end, they destroyed each other. The story is Moby Dick, and In the Heart of the Sea is about an incredible story that inspired the mentioned book.

BRIDGE OF SPIES

Spies-feat

The culprit for some of the favorite movies forever carved into an imaginary list of my favorite movies, is Steven Spielberg. Over the years he delivered a much-needed food for my cinephile hunger, food of various tastes, sometimes it was not perfect, but each time was made from the finest ingredients and prepared by the hands of a skilled craftsman. Of course, not all tastes the same for everyone, nor one man can love all without distinction, but one thing is certain – every time from this master, you could expect quality. I expected much of his last movie, Bridge of Spies, and I wasn’t disappointed.

CREED

creed-wide-1

Blast from the past is something that, in my opinion, one should experience at least once a year when it comes to movies. I’m referring to those feelings from our first movie days, when you discover what feels good, which movies raise your mood, which inspire you, cheer you up, wake you up, scared you, etc. Every movie lover has a handful of such films, which, in a particular moment of growing up, left an indelible mark and are located in a special place in our heart. For me, one of them is surely Rocky, the legendary sports drama, and the unforgettable role of Sylvester Stallone, who, after the film, became one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. In my case, the blow from the past today come in the form of movie Creed, a sort of continuation of Rocky saga in it’s full splendor.

Beasts of No Nation

idris-elba-beasts-no-nation

About the world in which we live and about us, humans, holders of, millennium created, civilization, many stories, songs, movies, etc. has been written and recorded. It has been done from a variety of views and contexts. However, none of the contexts is not suitable to describe the man better than the context of the war. It’s said that war brings out the best in man, but also the worst. I approach the war movies very seriously and focused because, whatever movie was, I am sure that I will see at least one authentic piece of the puzzle the human being. One such movie, rich in these pieces, is certainly Beasts of No Nation, directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga.

JESSICA JONES

In April 2015, Netflix began a collaboration with Marvel which gave us one of the best superhero series and definitely, by far, the darkest one. Daredevil was a huge hit and it thrilled many, including me. Around this success Netflix and Marvel made a bold plan to start three more series with superheroes, and then to gather all four of them in the miniseries Defenders, a well-known team of superheroes from the Marvel universe. In addition to Daredevil, they planned Luke Cage, Ironfist and Jessica Jones, who has just started and the one I’m writing about today.

THE LAST KINGDOM

last-kingdom

Stories from history, epic stories, with a little a bit of fantasy or lot of the same were always my thing, so as the movies and series with similar themes. Game of Thrones and Vikings made an entry for others and this year there were two new series. First one, The Bastard Executioner, from Kurt Suter failed to deliver and it is canceled after one season. The second one is a great tale of Uhtred Ragnarson or of Babenberg, a tale of The Last Kingdom.

BLACK SAILS-REVIEW

In the 80s and 90s, there was a variety of movies and cartoons with a pirate theme, which we enjoyed, and then they somehow disappeared. Then Pirates of the Caribbean with Johnny Depp happened and pirates have again become popular. After the planetary success of this movie  some new projects in the format of TV series, so we get a not so good Crossbones and phenomenal Black Sails.

EVEREST

everest-movie-700x372

It’s always interesting to watch the battle  man vs nature, whether it is a documentary or feature movie. On this subject many movies have been recorded, often inspired by true events, but also in the style of the big blockbusters, rather unrealistic, but exciting for the audience. We watched the various challenges of nature that man tried to conquer led by different motives. However this year we got a movie with one of the largest, if not the biggest, challenge of nature that man can encounter, Everest.
