2019-07-17 Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle 2017 4/5 Jumanji becomes a video game to trap modern kids, fun ensues. The movies plays with cliches in a masterful way, any player from the '90-2000 will laugh.
2019-08-12 Hobo with a Shotgun 2011 5/5 In a awful and crime-ridden city where one wonders why the national guard does not arrive to burn everything to the ground a hobo decides to deliver justice; one shell at time. (R.I.P. Rutger Hauer)

2019-08-28 Monster University 2013 3/5 Some things cannot be taught, does not matter how strongly you work, you may not be able to realize your dreams. A fun cartoon with an unexpected dark message.

2019-09-02 Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw 2019 1/5 Statham plays Statham (Shaw) and Dwayne Johnson plays Hobbs. They have to work together to help Shaw's sister against an evil organization that sends against them a cyber super soldier. Boring and forgettable. Not a zero just because The Rock is there and few scenes were nice, like the protagonists intro.
2019-09-02 The Legend of Kung Fu - 5/5 Not a movie, but a theatrical performance in Beijing at the Red Theater. Simple and effective story, however memorable mainly for the extreme athleticism of the actors.

2019-09-17 Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale 2010 4/5 Santa Claus isn't a jolly man who rewards the good, but an eldritch abomination who kidnaps and mutilates the naughty… Happy Christmas!

2019-11-19 Be Kind Rewind 2008 5/5 Hilarious comedy with implicit messages of friendship, what makes a good neighborhood and what makes movies fun.
2019-12-18 2.0 2018 6/5 The fifth force is coming and Chitty is rebuilt to protect humanity. A well done grandiose tale about technology, its use, pollution and interest in the long term.
