Film rivelazione all’ultimo Festival di Cannes, con lunghe code alle proiezioni e ben quattro premi ottenuti, Girl si candida a diventare uno dei casi cinematografici della stagione. Protagonista del film è Lara, adolescente con la passione della danza classica: insieme al padre e al fratellino si è trasferita in un’altra città per frequentare una prestigiosa scuola di balletto, a cui dedica tutta se stessa. Ma la sfida più grande è riuscire a fare i conti con il proprio corpo, perché Lara è nata ragazzo… Ispirato a una storia vera, il film segna il clamoroso debutto alla regia del ventisettenne Lukas Dhont (premiato con la Caméra d’Or), nonché l’esordio a dir poco sensazionale del giovanissimo protagonista Victor Polster, premiato come Miglior attore al Certain Regard.
NOTA DI REGIA di Lukas Dhont
Quando ero bambino mio padre voleva fare di me un boy scout. Ogni due settimane mi lasciava insieme a mio fratello a giocare nel fango con gli altri bambini e a campeggiare. Ma tutti e due odiavamo andarci. Entrambi preferivamo recitare, cantare e ballare e a noi sembrava che fosse questo il modo per esprimere noi stessi nel modo più sincero. Potete immaginare come siamo rimasti disorientati quando poco dopo abbiamo scoperto che queste cose erano viste come “femminili”, per bambine. Io ero un maschio, come potevano piacermi? Così alla fine ho smesso di farle, perché non volevo che mi si ridesse dietro…
Molti anni dopo, quando avevo iniziato a studiare cinema, lessi un articolo su una ragazza, nata in un corpo di ragazzo: era convinta di essere una ragazza malgrado la biologia non fosse d’accordo. La mia ammirazione per lei fu istantanea. Il desiderio di raccontare la storia di un personaggio simile, giovanissimo, capace di sfidare una società in cui genere e sesso sono ancora inevitabilmente connessi, era enorme. È così che è iniziato Girl, dal bisogno di dire qualcosa su come percepiamo il genere, sulla femminilità e la mascolinità. Ma soprattutto sulla lotta interiore di una giovane eroina che mette a rischio il proprio corpo per diventare la persona che vuole essere. Qualcuno che sceglie di essere se stesso all’età di 15 anni, quando a molte persone occorre una vita intera.

This is by far one of my favorite movies from the MCU. The introduction of new Characters both good and bad also makes the movie more exciting. giving the characters more of a back story can also help audiences relate more to different characters better, and it connects a bond between the audience and actors or characters. Having seen the movie three times does not bother me here as it is as thrilling and exciting every time I am watching it. In other words, the movie is by far better than previous movies (and I do love everything Marvel), the plotting is splendid (they really do out do themselves in each film, there are no problems watching it more than once.
Avengers Age of Ultron is an excellent sequel and a worthy MCU title! There are a lot of good and one thing that feels off in my opinion.
First off the action in this movie is amazing, to buildings crumbling, to evil blue eyed robots tearing stuff up, this movie has the action perfectly handled. And with that action comes visuals. The visuals are really good, even though you can see clearly where they are through the movie, but that doesn't detract from the experience. While all the CGI glory is taking place, there are lovable characters that are in the mix. First off the original characters, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye, are just as brilliant as they are always. And Joss Whedon fixed my main problem in the first Avengers by putting in more Hawkeye and him more fleshed out. Then there is the new Avengers, Quicksilver, Scarletwich, and Vision, they are pretty cool in my opinion. Vision in particular is pretty amazing in all his scenes.
The beginning of the film it's fine until towards the second act and there is when it starts to feel a little rushed. Also I do feel like there are scenes missing but there was talk of an extended version on Blu-Ray so that's cool.
I can't right much... it's just so forgettable...Okay, from what I remember, I remember just sitting down on my seat and waiting for the movie to begin. 5 minutes into the movie, boring scene of Tony Stark just talking to his "dead" friends saying it's his fault. 10 minutes in: Boring scene of Ultron and Jarvis having robot space battles(I dunno:/). 15 minutes in: I leave the theatre.2nd attempt at watching it: I fall asleep. What woke me up is the next movie on Netflix when the movie was over.
Bottemline: It's boring...
10/10 because I'm a Marvel Fanboy
If there were not an audience for Marvel comic heroes than clearly these films would not be made, to answer one other reviewer although I sympathize with him somewhat. The world is indeed an infinitely more complex place than the world of Marvel comics with clearly identifiable heroes and villains. But I get the feeling that from Robert Downey, Jr. on down the organizer and prime mover as Iron Man behind the Avengers these players do love doing these roles because it's a lot of fun. If they didn't show that spirit of fun to the audience than these films would never be made.
So in that spirit of fun Avengers: Age Of Ultron comes before us and everyone looks like they're having a good time saving the world. A computer program got loose and took form in this dimension named Ultron and James Spader who is completely unrecognizable is running amuck in the earth. No doubt Star Trek fans took notice that this guy's mission is to cleanse the earth much like that old earth probe NOMAD which got its programming mixed up in that classic Star Trek prime story. Wouldst Captain James T. Kirk of the Enterprise had a crew like Downey has at his command.
My favorite is always Chris Evans because of the whole cast he best gets into the spirit of being a superhero. Of all of them, he's already played two superheroes, Captain America and Johnny Storm the Human Torch. I'll be before he's done Evans will play a couple of more as long as the money's good and he enjoys it.
Pretend you're a kid again and enjoy, don't take it so seriously.
The Avengers raid a Hydra base in Sokovia commanded by Strucker and they retrieve Loki's scepter. They also discover that Strucker had been conducting experiments with the orphan twins Pietro Maximoff (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), who has super speed, and Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), who can control minds and project energy. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) discovers an Artificial Intelligence in the scepter and convinces Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) to secretly help him to transfer the A.I. to his Ultron defense system. However, the Ultron understands that is necessary to annihilate mankind to save the planet, attacks the Avengers and flees to Sokovia with the scepter. He builds an armature for self-protection and robots for his army and teams up with the twins. The Avengers go to Clinton Barton's house to recover, but out of the blue, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) arrives and convinces them to fight against Ultron. Will they succeed?
"Avengers: Age of Ultron" is an entertaining adventure with impressive special effects and cast. The storyline might be better, since most of the characters do not show any chemistry. However, it is worthwhile watching this film since the amazing special effects are not possible to be described in words. Why Pietro has to die is also not possible to be explained. My vote is eight.
