Genre: Comedy

Did we all like comedy movies? Comedians? Comedy in general? We all like to have a big laugh at the theater?   I Do!

From Chaplin Chaplin a man who can make you laughs without saying a world n his films to Jim Carrey who is my personal favorite.  Is good to go to the cinema to be relax and chill. Or in you house watching a movie.

Silent Comedies

Who’s better than Charlie Chaplin in Silent films. Made in the silent era and I believe that Modern Times (1936 ) was made when audio production begins.

We have also Rowan Atkinson aka Mr. Beans. Who he is the only silent character in the whole movie, and he is really funny.

Is utilizing exaggeration of action , also named slapstick comedy which probably  UK has one of the greatest ever made with Monty Python and The Holy Grail (1987). 

Spoof Comedies

This type of comedy can be really hilarious if you know how to do it and also can be really awful if you don’t.  Actually one of the greatest comedies of all time is a spoof film and I’m sure you have seen it. The name , Airplane! (1980)

Here’s a clip of one of the most famous scene of the movie.

Spoof is like mocking, well the right name is parody. like another example who is a parody to Star Wars. The name is  Spaceball (1987).

And recently the animated films like The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie are kind of spoof, and they’re are so damn fun!

Dark Comedy 

One of my favorites. You can express and talk things that are not that funny in real life and turn it into something hilarious with irony and sarcasm.  The perfect example is Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964). 

Master Kubrick know how to nailed it. Check this clip and you’ll see how relevant and ironic this film it is.

other example of dark comedies are The Wolf of Wall street (2013) , I think The Big Lebowski (1998) are part of of it.

Rom – Coms

Oooh the romantic comedies, I know you girls love them and I know you guys enjoy them too. I liked them. Can make you laugh , fall in love and also maybe cry.

More hybrid comedies: Horror/ Comedy, Action Comedy , etc.

 

A comedy is supposed to make you laugh, have fun and entertain. There can be drama films with comedic elements but it doesn’t mean that the movie is a comedy like for example the recent ” Phantom Thread.” 

I don’t need to talk more about comedies or be more deeper right?

Annihalation Review

Im’sorry but I’m not a fan.

This adaptation of the book by the same name by far is , and could be by the end of the year the most overrated movie of the year. I Think it will be one of the most overrated.

Boring and anticlimatic.

Have nice visuals, have nice shots and that’s it.

Go judge it by yourself. Hope you enjoy it.

Film Genres

There’e are thousands , millions of movies made since cinema born. Those movies are also different or similar to one another. Depends.

Movies are made by different styles, and different genres. Even combination of genres. for example: horror-comedy ( sounds weird ah?).  From Documentaries to dramas and action movies in any length, short film to feature film. From original  to remakes and reboot. from indies to major studios productions. Genres is like an identity to the film.

I will be talking in once a week about the different kind of genres. I love every genre they only  have to be a good movie and i’ll enjoy any.

 

Etc, etc, etc…

Black Panther Review/Opinion

Wakanda Forever! This how the year begin to me. This how marvel do things.

A great job by director Ryan Coogler (Creed) and his whole crew for creating a different kind of Marvel film.  The movie is flawed but is on the Top of the Marvel Cinematic Universe list. Maybe can be the best for you.

The great stuff:

  • The plot and story.
  • The Characters.
  • Women Rules in this film.
  • Costume Design.
  • Production Design.
  • Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger is the one of the best MCU villain since Loki. My favorite performance.
  • The cinematography.
  •  The score.
  • The songs by Kendrick Lamar.
  • And my favorite, The long takes. Specially in the casino fight.

Everyone deliver a great performance and it’s weird to see a Marvel movie with serious acting performances, hopefully we’ll see some of that in Infinity War. 

The ok stuff.

  • Visuals Effects sometimes seems fake. But they are good in overall.
  • Sometimes the hip hop score I felt to me a little bit out place , but most of the time was really good.  ( like rap and hip hop btw)

Black Panther hopefully will be in my Top the films of the year at the end of 2018.

The film is beautifully shot by Academy Award Nominee, Rachel Morrison. 

The film is very complete, filled with culture, action , and excitement. Go see it in IMAX!

I want a Round 2! Road To Infinity War!
