2020 was a pandemic-fueled disaster that kept film fanatics at home to watch their favorite films. And though many of us went back to the movies, blockbusters returned and streaming services dominated, 2021 was still a strange year that concluded with the magnum opus Spider-Man: No Way Home.
I am not going to compare Uncharted with the game as everyone else is doing since it’s released but the film lacks the spirit and the energy of the character and the rest of the characters too. This is added to the mediocre plot that’s just too easy and nothing adventurous.
Roland Emmerich’s Moonfall is an insanely stupid film but still much fun as we discover what really is the moon made of as its creating the orbital disturbance. Patrick Wilson can always be counted on to deliver tragic circumstances while Halle Berry is doing it for the cash and good for her. With obvious CGI and a script that had to have the actors howling while they collected their paychecks, it was always made for a good time. Nothing more, nothing less.
A very solid sequel in the franchise, Scream (or Scream 5) offers an incredible plot, a great score, and some stand-out performances.
Sony and Marvel’s Spiderman: No Way Home crosses the billion dollar mark!
Not all movies can be really great. What I gathered from this comedy-disaster film, was that it’s focusing on how the world and how many people ignore life-threatening events, but more specifically, climate change. I also think it was hinting towards how we handled the Covid-19 pandemic, along with political issues. Those are the areas where Don’t Look Up shines through. The plot is too cheesy and cringe to feel realistic but the messages are certainly not.
Nightmare Alley is an absolutely fantastic film. Del Toro, as well as the cast, comes together in a sensational fashion. A world where every movie is a superhero CGI whitewashed experience crafted for maximum profit is not one that I want to live in. It’s fast food for your brain, it’s not an experience. Films like this are that meal you ate while on vacation in that cafe with the unforgettable waiter and desert that you’ve never had before, or the one that you will never forget.
Making a film based on a real sporting event is very difficult, especially making one that could stand out for its idea, production, characterisation, script, as well as execution. 83 manages to do all that being as big, and as a pleasant surprise as a World Cup win may suffice.

Like everyone else, it’s hard to not get excited about something like this. Though, I am someone who prefers character-driven narratives to plot-driven. Considering that this film involves a big concept like the Multiverse, I went to the cinema with low expectations. But man, this film proved me wrong big time.
