Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021)
A misunderstood masterpiece
Only those who fought against their demons and the demons of others will understand the message: Madness is for the intelligent, for those who know how to deal with it. In the mind of a proud ignorant, it can be like a gun, spewing hatred wherever it goes.
Wrong Turn (2021)
Let us cure everything that is hereditary!
I'm surprised! I spent a long time deciding watch or not to this movie. In the end I gave in out of curiosity, for being a remake of a slasher that I love so much, for being iconic. It was mostly negative review months ago.
In this reboot, the story is rewritten with a much stronger and more poetic premise, showing a fight between generations and cultures that is very important for us to understand more deeply the reason for the confusions of today. I could see metaphors about racism, homophobia and misogyny in the work, which were the parts that most gripped and moved me in the script.
It's a shame that the movie was a failure for large audiences. I honestly can understand why: It's not fun. In the end, I was positively surprised by the story, which has some problems that interrupt the viewer's illusion for a moment, but that don't take the shine off his features, creating a thump for anyone with some nonstandard idea in their head.
A definitive CBJR video experience
The band is in one of the best days of their career, making this their best live record. And the audience shows such happiness and intensity that it seems to go beyond the limits of home-video while I'm watching this.
The video direction is amazing. The editing is also very good, but sometimes the abrupt cut between intervals and Chorão's speeches bothers, which also happens in the audio.
The will VS. Holy Spirit
Maybe this is the best episode of the series, as it puts into discussion the two biggest dilemmas of humanity: The will and greed to be more, and the peace of mind that makes us understand each other so much. The standard house of the American dream found itself in an almost insoluble problem, because there were totally different ideas, which could cause angry separations. Nothing is perfect for long, and this episode felt like a series finale, until the end of the episode itself. Despite all those mistakes, the spirit of peace manifested itself.
I didn't really like that tape being so well edited, as if it had been treated in a studio. But the rest of the episode is well directed and conducted.
Raya and the Last Dragon (2021)
Pixar's work with less emotions, except for the ending
I only felt fascinated with the animation during the fight scenes between Raya and Namaari, which are very well choreographed and worked on. There is still a lack of metaphors that this producer always brings, because this time they focused only on the idea of betrayal and forgiveness, with no scope for symbolism or other related issues. Comedy within a serious argument is something that bothers me, but I prefer more a joke to break the tension than the exaggerated cartoonist of the "Mitchell Family". Disney's standard elements, like good animals always being too cute, are tired.
A very predictable work that is worth it just for the beautiful argument.
Laugh and cry remembering the past
I went back to watching it kind of to know what it was, because I only remembered the images, and not much of the essence of the program itself. I was surprised when I realized that it is (yes, it still is) something that uses irony to criticize almost everything, and not a children's comedy as I once understood it, as a child. Sometimes the writers extrapolate with a few cartoonish jokes; but what really bothers is the lack of sparkle in the eyes of the characters. The expressions lack naturalness, and sometimes it seems that the controls are "out of control". But I understand the limitations of the time, and that is why there is a sense of wonder.
It's a fun and strong series, like few comedies have been. Just don't get carried away just for the fun of it. Enjoy it all, without fear of feeling guilty about memories you will remember in some episodes.
History of our legacy
One of the most didactic video game games I've ever played. The experience is very expressive, and made me understand much more than I thought about our legacy. Like the "Scarface" game, thid made me a little disturbed by everything I had to do if I wanted to move forward, like invading a place and fighting for that place as if it were mine. Of course, there are many teen games that also work with this argument, but the script much more serious, accompanied by a visual with "lifeless" colors, makes this an impactful work in all aspects. Technically, I can also talk about the sound: the dubbing and the original score give a spectacle, leaving a much greater immersion. A great thing for this type of game.
One Day at a Time (2017)
So many important debates
I still don't like very much of sitcoms because of the lack of technique in almost all aspects, but now the guidelines are different. For these difficult times, this series has something that is worth feeling and discussing, and not just laughing. The camera direction and editing are very good, and sometimes it was a differentiator that made me laugh more. And I can't help saying that it has the most bubbly opening song on the sitcoms. That for sure!
Over the years, I have matured and stopped following most of the series of the genre, only revisiting in a few reprises, on the most tedious days possible. Even with my habit of looking for uncomfortable experiences, I had gone back to watching Two and a Half Men to laugh with nerves, with those sexist and silly jokes of the protagonists. The creators redeemed themselves a little bit with Mike & Molly, who got me because of Melissa McCarthy's strong personality, but still had the goof, who had to share the series with her.
I don't know if there have other series similar on this genre with so many important debates. But One Day At A Time was more enjoyable because it was the first for me.
A part of a strong woman
It so so good watch a part of the story of this strong woman called Elis, and her MPB. In the midst of all that chaos, whether that of the military regime or that of her home, she was there with her art to protest.
I was surprised with the edition and the photography of the series because it seemed that I was looking at a classic like Casablanca. The lip sync displeased me a little, but it is something relevant, which did not kill my vibe.
Anyway, a Brazilian biopic that fascinates me, in almost every way. Worthy of one of the most influential voices of all time. Hail Elis!
Chorão: Marginal Alado (2019)
He drop everything for his mission.
Unfortunately, Chorão was consumed by madness. And I think this was all after he got the microfone, because that's what gives the excluded a voice. I know, because I was very much like him, and all I wanted was to be able to shout what I was feeling, and tell all my ideas to anyone. But in some cases, it doesn't work out very well because the person feels on a mission. He drop everything for that.
I'm glad I didn't have that opportunity when I was young, otherwise I would have turned into a rock, with no chance of change. Today I give importance to those around me, and they care about me. Being radical is of no use, for those who dream of changing the world. In fact, it only helped those who were like him, and maybe that was enough. He couldn't do more than that, but at least he got something.
About the technical part without any sentimentality (phew!), I didn't like the changes in the screen format. Of course, I understand that there was no access to production to the raw file, but it still bothers me.
Big Brother Brasil (2002)
You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain
I never liked reality shows! Despite watching a little each year, I didn't feel involved with the idea of ??seeing models parading inside a mansion, and earning a million to go through absolutely nothing. But the 2021 season was different, specifically for this TV show. 50 percent of unknown people wanting to show their personalities. 50 percent of celebrities and influencers, with ideals already shared in their arts with millions of followers. Everyone entered the house embraced and showing that there was a real interest in the experience of living with the unknown of the known.
In the first weeks, there was the case of Lucas. Watching the pain of a black activist being scorned was strong. They did not take into account the experiences he had inside and outside the home. They did not try to embrace him, to symbolize that a simple gesture can change everything. They created even more anger in the sufferer, making the participant become gay and surprise even the family who watch him, becoming part of another group that will need to fight forever for their rights. The survivor's error has become the cause of other errors. For me, the most notable was the ease with which people changed their minds, depending on the group they were talking to. It was a blow to me, who believed in heroes, to see the idealistic rapper proving to be hypocrites to be funnier for friends. My hope for a better world has sleep for a while, after I saw that.
In addition to all the problems, I was moved to see the audience watching and commenting in real time everything that happened, influencing the scriptwriters of the program presenter to show with subliminal messages that some participants exaggerated in attacks. In our own daily experience, we can see metaphors, if we focus on our attitudes, on how we can be better with our brothers. With a reality show that I criticized, I was able to learn that we should stop to think, and ask questions in time so that everyone is happy, even if they have different ideals.
The setting up of the program, as well as the omission of certain important parts in the summary of the day, is very bad, and I still think that the direction of the program talks to some participants to try to change the direction that the story would take. But these things do not diminish the importance of the program to pass messages of coexistence to people.
Magic in the Moonlight (2014)
the script was moving me on a personal level
Til a certain point, it was very nice to watch this film. The photography and the direction fascinated me, and the script was moving me on a personal level, making me see, from a different perspective, a little bit of my recent mental and spiritual evolution was like.
After the prayer scene at the hospital, the film grew stronger and tense because of the protagonist's doubts, and for a moment I thought the message of the whole work was to praise skepticism. But that view just made me get cheated again by the script.
Ultimately, you need to know the secrets to know how to truly love. And that some experiences only serve to shape our personality and the way we see things.
The Croods: A New Age (2020)
Impactful metaphors battled with the absurd
In "Croods 2", the impactful metaphors battled with the absurd. The editing of the final battle along with those pop songs bothered me a lot. But because I have a very sentimental side, wins what reminds me and teaches me about something important, than I take with me for a lifetime.
Scarface: The World Is Yours (2006)
Experiencing a difficult time
The gameplay of this game is basic and nothing innovative. But what makes it a masterpiece is the difficulty, and how quickly it becomes boring, making these as the game's main pretensions. You live like a drug dealer, you kill and "die" several times, and you are transphobic without retaliation.
In the film, you see yourself watching a man who rise from suffering, becoming an unpleasant person. In the game I think a little bit like him, which further increased my contempt for the character.
A "scarface" always says something. And that is never good, for either side.
Script with touching metaphors
Despite telling a story real story, the beautiful script is sprinkled with touching metaphors. Some are easy to swallow, others more difficult, but still need to be savored. The only thing I missing from the movie is an artistic look. Very common camera and photography direction.
Christopher Robin (2018)
Simple and so lovely
Simple and so lovely, like a day in the countryside. The metaphor about skepticism touched me deeply, in addition to nostalgia, always present in adaptations like this. The smell of childhood surrounds the whole movie, making it difficult not to be touched. I only feel that feeling with Toy Story 4, and in a much higher way.
The Peanuts Movie (2015)
Have a metaphor about repetitive adaptations
A sweet and passionate film, both in the plot and in the visual. I almost cried several times, but maybe it's because of the nostalgia, lol. I also liked the metaphor about repetitive adaptations, always importing what the work teaches or remembers for the character of the human being.
The last thing Bruno feels
One of these days I read a review of this movie, where it said that the writers only put children in difficult situations to make the audience more shocked than normal. I do not agree. The message of the film is about the equality of the human being and the knowledge and the evil of the adult man. The two boys, after meeting, wanted to have a life together, a friendship. They dream togheter for the same thing while they were talking, which was to be closer to each other. In that innocence, they built an indestructible link, which made Bruno want to help his friend in some way. In this they end up, even as children, feeling the wrath of being an adult. Although the film speaks and takes place in the war, it can also be a metaphor for human knowledge, and how far it should go. The film does not revolve around Bruno's father (as I have seen someone say "Well done for what happened!"), But in the innocence of the children. The child's father would be, perhaps, the last thing Bruno feels in the film.
This is the type of film to "dive into". Even Bruno's pranks at the beginning of the film have meaning later on. Sometimes, it's so easy to understand ...! Perhaps it would be much more interesting, for a certain audience, if they had shown shootings and acrobatics. A popcorn movie for you really waste your time.
Over the Moon (2020)
Full of metaphors and a fascinating visual
A masterpiece full of metaphors for my delight, in addition to having a fascinating visual that I regret not having seen before, when this movie was released. The cartoonish part bothered me, but it is just a thing of mine.
The Godfather: Part II (1974)
It thrills me like the first time.
Michael scorned her as he closed the door in her face. But Kay was strong, and knew about herself. My favorite scene ever. It thrills me like the first time.
My third favorite animation
Three years ago, I called it boring. My mind for art has changed, and today this is my third favorite animation.
It's all my fault for unraveling allegories, even when there aren't. For example, the Fairy appears when Cinderella cries, as if it were the most beautiful feeling of sadness. Or the fumbling rat that learns to be useful, like Cinderella's feeling of no longer being a prisoner of the whims of others.
Game Shakers: He's Back (2019)
I do not like the recent Nickelodeon shows, but my brother likes it, and I ended up paying some attention to it because of Kel Mitchell, who is really fun. I saw the last episode now, and I liked this open ending. Not as clever as in The Sopranos, but ... I even appreciate the end of My Wife and Kids, a comedy series whose majority wanted more. I always thought that the final phrase spoke of the series itself, and of all the difficult situations dealt with in a cheerful way by the characters. You've spent years getting to know these characters. You know what their attitudes will be.
One of the most artistic scenes of the franchise
"It's been trained to expect pain when it hears the noise." The moment than the dragon is on a roof, sighing ... I almost cry. Beautiful!
From a children's film to a dark one
Better development, direction and editing than the previous one. It also has the most exciting moment of the franchise, so it's a favorite.
Grizzly Man (2005)
This is an interesting documentary about wild and human nature
Thanks to the director Werner Herzog, who knew how to edit the film and how to answer some questions that the protagonist ended up raising during his walk. I do not believe in fate, but it seems that Treadwell had chosen his since he decided to live with the bears. What happened was just the inevitable.
