“One shot.” -Nick 🗣
🎥 The Deer Hunter (1978) 🎬
The scene that broke many hearts during the film, but it’s so well acted. Christopher Walken shows that he is tired, he’s brain dead, and all his sense of reality is shot. He’s become brainwashed. Robert De Niro reacting to Walken’s suicide is so believable that you actually want to cry yourself. You can feel and see the pain in De Niro’s face, knowing that he expected this outcome but he tried everything he could do to rescue his friend. The Deer Hunter is in my opinion one of the greatest acted movies in cinema history. It’s 3 hours of action, drama, thrills and a storyline that will drag you right into the film. A classic that will be loved until the end of time.
"Power Rangers" (2017) 124'
RATING: 7-/10 🌕🌕🌕🌗🌑
Power Rangers, characters who have played an important role in my childhood, return to the big screen in a new, modern and expensive, even 100 mln budget, a version that turns them into a real Hollywood blockbuster.
As it is conceivable, given the enormous budget, Lionsgate had ideas and real ambitious plans to declare, prior to its release, that it intends to continue the path started with this film until it reaches a total of 6 sequel.
But after the not so exhilarating result at the box office, "only" 140 mln worldwide, their plan I think have changed, to such a degree that it is no longer safe for one hundred percent to make a sequel.
Probably the reason for this small failure is to be found within the film; in fact, the various ambitious ideas that had originally been translated into a trivial plot, a somewhat confused script and non-high-level dialogues, but more consistent with a B-series movie, though from time to time some jokes work mostly thanks of the time comedic.
However, despite the various flaws in the narrative field, the film unexpectedly liked me, the reason is pretty simple: the movie offers all the fun and entertainment that every blockbuster and movie about Power Rangers has to offer, especially for those like me who have an affective bond, no irrelevant, with the main characters; of course, the creators did not forget about us and we were content, especially towards the end, with various easter eggs, gifts and quotes related to the television series.
What struck me most is that the trash spirit, typical of the original series, is kept in this film, even though in very small doses. (The Review continues in the comment)

Now watching The Wind Rises from director Hayao Miyazaki. It's been I long time since I've seen a Studio Ghibli film so I'm hoping this one is good. I haven't really seen a Studio Ghibli film yet that I haven't liked. Especially from as good as a director of Miyazaki. You can expect a review for this movie real soon after I watch it!
