Last 12 movies I’ve watched

The hundred foot journey (2014) by Lasse Hallström

From the director of Cholocat (2000), a story centered around an Indian family who settle in a tiny village in the south of France and open a restaurant across the street from a Michelin-starred French restaurant.

Besides the gastronomic content of the movie, topic I love, there’s an etnic and cultural battle that Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren) and the Kadam family will win with spice.

Ocho apellidos catalanes (2015) by Emilio Martínez-Lázaro

Being Catalan myself, I had to watch the continuation of the movie Ocho apellidos vascos (2014), both comedies about the regionalism and languages of Spain. It made me laugh out loud.

Mother’s day (2016)  by Garry Marshall 

Yes, I know, another silly and bland American movie full of clichés, but they know their cast will get my attention in a boring evening; Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson…

Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993) by Woody Allen

Loved the surrealism and the charm Wooddy Allen and Diane Keaton again. Kept us on the edge of our seats throughout. Just great.

Duck Soup (1933) by Leo McCarey

The Marx brothers, a classic in my family, enjoyed together and the new generations love them!

The Jungle book (2016) by Jon Favreau

Expected much more of this remake, to be honest. Good movie, nonetheless. Great and dark cinematography.

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) by Wes Anderson

Attracted by its cast in the first place, it surprised me. Beautifully told story about the adventures of Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes), the legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. Very good taste, great costume design and cinematography.

Serpico (1973) by Sidney Lumet

WOW! What a raw, passionate and superb role Al Pacino plays. Nail-biting movie. Loved it.

Maleficient (2014) by Robert Stromberg

Rewriting the story of the Sleeping Beauty with dark enchantment. Angelina Jolie as a fairy and a witch. Just for day dreamers!

El hijo de la novia (2011) by Juan José Campanella

I saw this Argentinian comedy, at last! It’s fun, sweet, real, surreal..

What happened, Miss Simone? (2015) by Liz Garbus

Documentary on Nina Simone’s life. Deep. Shocking.

The big short (2015) by Adam McKay

The story of how few people envisioned the global crisis of 2008 caused by the subprime mortgages that nearly sank the global financial system three years before it happened and how they made money out of it. Irony, humour and realism. Great cast.

Enjoy them!
