All the reviews made it sound great. Romantic / 45 Years(2015)

"Charlotte Rampling is married to Tom Courtenay. They are in their late sixties-early seventies. They are about to publicly celebrate their 45th anniversary together with a big party in about a week. Tom receives a letter informing him that the body of his once girlfriend had been found frozen in a block of ice in the Swiss alps. You see, in 1962, Tom and his girlfriend were hiking up a mountain and she accidentally fell. Of course she was assumed dead but the body had never been recovered. So, over fifty years later her body was found. Since then, Tom had married Charlotte and now is their 45th anniversary together.

Charlotte is upset about this long dead woman. Why? But as the story unfolds we find out that Tom and his now dead girlfriend may have been planning to get married, AND she was pregnant at the time of her death. Tom had not told Charlotte these facts when they were married or at any time after they were married. Now, Charlotte, who must think that she was Tom's one and only, has to 'deal' with this revelation. Again, they have been married 45 years. 45 years and the former girlfriend is dead. She didn't even know Tom when he was with this woman."

Ex Machina,

Carol,  "if you don't have passion in a love story then you just failed.

Inside Out, very amusing, fun little movie, a bit overpraised ?

The story of Antoine Doinel and his many experiences allow a life to be filled with curiosity and exploration. Every second of the ninety-nine minutes of the film is not wasted. Truffaut allows every minute to be overflowing with creativity while still maintaining the central story of the protagonist. It is not a film that can be taken lightly as a family movie to be watched every Saturday night. It is a film to be given plenty of thought, carefully examined, and given a conclusion. The genius of the film does not rely on that, moreover, it relies on how much is put into the film. Down to the smallest detail, the film is able to maneuver and progress. The story contains elements of sadness, regret, family, warmth, happiness, humor, values, and choices. Just like life itself.

Some of the city’s housing blocks are already in a grave state of disrepair. A burst bathroom pipe in one of the rickety communal housing buildings reveals a much larger problem, as the exterior wall behind the pipe has cracked and started to shift. When Nikitin goes outside to inspect the matter, he realizes the building has fissured from the ground up to the ninth and last floor.

sends Fedotov and Matugin to assess the damage with Nikitin. The officials soon accept that the building will indeed fall, and return to report this to the mayor.

   personal tuppence added :

DOURAK in russian ("mad") gave a famous "general DOURAKINE" , book from "La comtesse de Segur", russian french writer!

All frenchies who saw that movie certainly will notice that there is some continuity in the russian soul (1800 / 2000's +)

Russia offers , since the begin of the motion pic's industry, masterpieces , we'll review some here.

I was unaware FB. I remember seeing vagabond when it first was made way back in the mid eighties, 2 awesome. Here is another great Frenchie film. also with Sanndrine Bonnaire.  Queen to play.

A young women who works as a cleaner discovers chess by chance.  She is taken by the game and shows a degree of prowess.  Her intellect which had been latent is awoken and she uses this new found awareness to explore freedom from an otherwise humdrum existence.

I saw "HEAT" with de NIRO / AL PACINO / ASHLEY JUDD.... etc ...

a masterpiece, a thriller, and two fantastic actors, to be seen. All were .... young 1995: me too happy.png

the story is about dealers and cops, unimportant, de Niro calm gangster, and Pacino just mad sometimes are the value of the movie !

-------------------------------------

Before HARRY serial, Clint Eastwood played in " a sheriff in NY", sawn yesterday -1968 - !! It was more or less the first format of the following DIRTY HARRY movies, really interesting thrillers, with the archetype of the lonesome cowboy to protect the society...against the cop's institution sometimes.

This is interesting. I like movie reviews too. I just did a review on Captain Marvel. 

FRENCHBASHER001

go ahead welcome here

No one else is sharing, so...

I recently splurged on the 3D versions of Alita: Battle Angel and Captain Marvel.

I was eager to see Alita: Battle Angel because it is a project that James Cameron has been working on for years.  I still think Avatar (2009) is the best 3D film to date.  Unfortunately, Cameron passed direction on to Robert Rodriguez who is a more action-oriented director.  Here, the central character, Alita is a cyborg with amnesia.  So, obvious questions like: who is she really, how did she get here and several other 'whys' are left wide open (for sequels to answer).  What's left is a fight-fest trying to catch manga fever for box office bucks.

I'll give it a quick rating of 1/4 stars.  That one star being for the CGI used for the central character.

Captain Marvel (3D version) was slightly better.  In this case, the central character (Carol Danvers/Vers/Capt. Marvel) is suffering from amnesia AND flashback nightmares.  She also hasn't bothered to question why the thing on her neck keeps her from fully realizing her powers.  For some unknown reason both of these films want to handicap their heroine from the get-go.  I presume (in both cases) it is to heighten the 'final reveal'.  It fails in both films.

However, in this film the story and action flow and fit in a more natural (but not perfect) way.  The supporting cast (with the exception of Jude Law) is much better here.  So, I'll give this one a quick rating of 2.5/4 stars.  One for acting spread around generally.  Another for writing thanks to (imo) Nicole Perlman (from the first Guardians of the Galaxy) who should get more power to write in the future.  And the half star for the automobiles from the period.
