The Nun (2018) - Film Review
THE NUN - 2018
Directed by Corin Hardy.
Written by Gary Dauberman, based on a story by James Wan and Gary Dauberman.
Cast: Demián Bichir, Taissa Farmiga, Jonas Bloquet, Bonnie Aarons.
Corin Hardy's "The Nun" represents an uncreative mess of modern horror clichés. Everything from inverted crosses to bloody pentagrams is present in the prequel to the popular "Conjuring" franchise. Don't get me wrong; it would be absurd to expect a movie like this to be a masterpiece of cinema. But this is not the case. All we wanted as cinephiles was a movie which did not insult our intelligence. What did we get instead? Spit. Yes, we got "spit".
As a movie-goer I can accept many bad aspects of a movie and still appreciate the final picture as long as there is entertainment value. We can ignore the fact that the people from a Romanian village all speak English (also in the year 1953), sure, but can we also ignore how the blood of Christ is involved in "ritual" which is not even fully explained?

SUNDAY FILM REVIEW #3 - 2018 and 1951
A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE - 1951
Genre: Drama
Directed by Elia Kazan
Written by Tennessee Williams
Cast: Vivien Leigh, Marlon Brando, Kim Hunter, Karl Malden
The 50's marked an important period for filmmaking, mostly because of the transitory value the decade had. The pictures were changing, that's a certain thing. But in which way?
Elia Kazan, already a Broadway legend by the time he directed "A Streetcar Named Desire", is one of the most influential Hollywood directors of all time. His film "On The Waterfront" is widely considered one of most representative pieces of American cinematography and it's often quoted among critics. However,  "A Streetcar Named Desire" is not a let-down either. The film is noticed mostly for two reasons: the use of jazz music (being the first film to do use it) and, of course, Marlon Brando.
I'll try not to create a Marlon Brando review out of this, so I'll tell you only what you need to know. Brando is one of the first actors to introduce America to t

SUNDAY FILM REVIEW #2 - Amelie and The Apartment
AMELIE - 2001
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet
Cast: Audrey Tautou, Matthieu Kassovitz, Rufus
Screenplay by Guillaume Laurant
Produced by Jean-Marc Deschamps and Claudie Ossard
"Amélie" is a film about a young woman who finds her meaning in helping others while entertaining herself doing so. Her big eyes and bright smile seem to charm every person who dares to stare at her, but few know that Amélie, just like everyone else present in the movie, has a sad story which she keeps for herself.
An ignorant father and a stressed mother filled her childhood with emptiness and this emptiness led her to create an imaginary world just for herself. This world is the source of her smile and it helps her survive reality. But one day when Amélie discovers an old box full of toys and cards that 40 years ago belonged to a boy she realizes being happy is not enough, and maybe her real purpose in life is to contaminate other people with her optimism.
The film presents

Sunday Film Review #1 - Delightful vs. Disturbing
THE PURPLE ROSE OF CAIRO - 1985
Genre: Comedy; Romance
Directed and written by Woody Allen
Cast: Mia Farrow, Jeff Daniels, Danny Aiello, Van Johnson, Alexander H. Cohen
Produced by Robert Greenhut
There was a time when words could not be spoken out loud and colours were not a thing for the art of film. I speak of course about the silent era of filmmaking, back when a still young Buster Keaton released a 45 minutes long film called "Sherlock, Jr." and used the power of illusion and editing to seduce the audiences. Woody Allen, already one of the most important filmmakers of all-time, made his own "Sherlock, Jr." in 1985: The Purple Rose Of Cairo.
The film is not so much of a tribute to Keaton's masterpiece as more of a tribute to the art of film itself. Woody Allen is not present on the screen this time, but we can feel his presence in the script, and in the love story, of course.
The plot is simple: an everyday woman escapes everyday problems (including a not-so-caring husband played b
