Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021)
Not a masterpiece, but an incredible and unrepeatable experience
There are so many problems in this movie, starting with many plot holes, but after all it succeeds in the attempt to close in great way Tom Holland's trilogy.
The comeback of the previous Spider-man is not only fan-service, but also an expedient to make Tom Holland's Peter Parker grow up.
The VFX do their work without any problem.
Honorable mention to the great performance by Willem Dafoe, coming back twenty years later as the Green Goblin, and also a good performance by Tom Holland and Jamie Foxx as the Electro.
On the other hand, not a great work from a dead Rhys Evans as the Lizard. In its favor, however, we must say that is character has been cast aside to make shine other characters, like the great Alfred Molina's Doc Ock.
As always, the film is pervaded by a light atmosphere, typical of the Marvel movies, but it is surely deepest movie of the "Home trilogy".
Good work from Jon Watts, capable of administrate such a big cast and give an honorable finale to Tobey Maguire's Spider-man, while Andrew Garfield's Spider-man seems has something more to say... maybe, we will see!
The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
Kinda overrated, nah?
Episode V is without any doubt, ten light years ahead of Episode IV.
It has good writing and another great performance from Harrison Ford, the most convincing actor of this trilogy. Darth Vader is capable of being a great villain, but this movie has something wrong.
VFX are not in step with times. It is difficult to understand how it is possible, with an astronomical budget, to be barely at acceptable levels in 1980.
Credit must be given to George Lucas, capable of take this saga and bring it to the "dark side", with darker and more mature tones but, still to be considered in a limbo and, for this reason, with somewhat confused ideas.
Star Wars (1977)
The Space Soap Opera par Excellence
Star Wars is an absolute milestone of the sci-fi genre but... for no reasons! It is not original at all, why?
Star Wars is the review in modern key of the great Ludovico Ariosto's "Orlando Furioso". The love triangle between Luke, Leyla and Han Solo follows literally step by step the progress we have in the "Orlando Furioso".
This aspect and the complete disrespect for comic times ruined a plot with a lot of potential.
Credit must be given to Harrison Ford, author of a great performance, capable of carrying on his shoulders the weight of an entire movie.
J. K. Rowling what are you doin' here?
Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) plane to raise an army of wizards to rule over muggles. Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) seeks Newt Scamander's (Eddie Redmayne) help to stop him.
There are so many problems in this movie. The main problem is the lack of a great villain. Johnny Depp, at his historical lows, is far far away from Ralph Fiennes' Voldemort. The plot is so boring and it is obvious that there will be no progress until the last film of the Saga. This movie has to considered as a "passing movie" until the grand finale.
The only positive note is Jude Law performance, ambiguous and intriguing, and the great VFX.
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018)
The finest representation of Death (and life)
In this little Netflix masterpiece, Coen brothers narrate about death. She (yeah, it's like a person) comes in multiple ways and unexpectedly -as for the main character of the first story, the cowboy Buster Scruggs- but inevitably comes. Not for anyone, this movie is one of the greatest work by Coen brothers.
