The New Pope (2019)
As The Young Pope was brilliant, unpredictable (you saw it because you can't expect what was going on), this sequel is terrible, slow, boring, predictable. And I agree with the review that says that without Jude Law this second chapter is nothing. And you can't understand why cardinals should have voted for a bored nobleman who has no vocation and who they even don't know. Bah... I watched until the third episode. I will try to watch more, but I think I am going to leave it for something more interesting
I wasn't expecting too much from this movie. Argentero is a former model who now tries to do his best as an actor, and in this movie he really does his best. He portraits with great sweetness his character and the movie flows with a light touch. The beginning reminds me Amelie, for the use of outside voice and colors, and in general Forrest Gump, even if the style is very different. Anyway a good movie. If you don't expect too much, you can find a nice surprise
The Greatest Showman (2017)
I haven't seen such a beautiful movie for years. I bought the dvd two days ago and I can't stop thinking how I have been stupid not to see it at the cinema. Great rhythm, wonderful direction, acting (Hugh Jackson and Rebecca Ferguson above all), screenplay, cinematography, editing, art direction, costumes. And one the most enchanting and powerful music ever written. I just can't choose a favourite song, as they all are absolutely stunning. I wouldn't change a single moment or a single note. From the very first moment till the end I have been living in a dream I haven't get out yet. In the heaviest and saddest period of my life, this movie has made me find again the wish to smile, to sing, to dance, to live... I feel "light", like I'm walking on clouds, as I haven't felt for such a long time... This is not only a musical, this is not only cinema, this is pure magic!
First of all, sorry for my English: I'm Italian and I don't know if I am able to express not in my language my thoughts with the proper terms. Anyway, I loved this movie, even if I agree that the title should have been F.F.Coppola's Dracula. In fact it is a very personal read of the original script. So, I can understand, but not agree, with all critics about important differences to Bram Stoker's masterpiece. It's a movie you can love or hate, there is no midway, as all comments prove. Personally, I loved the way Coppola reviewed the classic tale, giving Dracula a reason to be what he became after the loss of his wife e to search in England the reincarnation of his lost love. Gary Oldman is absolutely fantastic, lavish, romantic,chilling, in particular as he plays an old Dracula in the beginning of the movie. Definitely the best character of his career until now (let's see how he portrays Churchill in the Darkest Hour). Winona Ryder is so sweet and adorable that I forgive the fact she hasn't been the best choice to play Mina. The other actors (except for Keanu Reeves, completely outcast and unable to act) are all good choices. The music is wonderful, as cinematography, art/set direction, make up and costumes (who cares if Dracula wears John Lennon style sunglasses...). This Dracula is seductive as no other movies ever showed and as no other actor was able to portrait the dark prince. By the way, the choice of Keanu Reeves and some screenplay bad errors and holes don't allow to give a 10. But at the same time I can understand it's not a movie for all tastes. As I already written, you can love or hate it.
