Cola de Mono

Disappointing

(Edit) 15/08/2019

Potentially interesting context and characters but too little happens, plus the movie awkwardly oscillates between genres.

Desire

Mostly self indulgent and pretentious

(Edit) 20/03/2019

The first film is okey-ish.

Main storyline had potential to be interesting but unfortunately is not developed properly.

The other """"films"""" are extremely annoying, un-interesting, self-indulgent and pretentious.

Happy End

Haneke at his best

(Edit) 30/07/2018

This is a fantastic movie by one of the most interesting directors there is.

Please, pay no attention to the reviews above. Especially the one recommending fast-forwarding the beginning of the movie

This is a crucial scene! Miss it and you will no be able to understand the main character and the story in general.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Great comic. Flacid movie. Missed opportunity

(Edit) 19/12/2017

Casting for Valerian was totally wrong. Once that terrible decision was made, it was impossible to save the movie.

The storyline was ok (thanks to the original great comic material which pre-existed Star Wars and inspired Lucas), the dialogues were laughingly bad. I suggest employing proper writers rather than relying on Besson's "wit".

Main actor, on top of being wrongly cast and having poor lines was terrible. Even Cara Delevingne was better.

Some visuals were ok, not groundbreaking (mostly cut and paste from many other movies).

SFX felt a bit botched occasionally.

How can such an uninspired director who hasn't made a decent movie in a long long time access this kind of budget is mind boggling.
