Children of Men (2006)
5 out of 5 - Stunning!
Children of Men is maybe the most melodramatic and intense post apocalyptic sci fi film of all time. Yes of all time, its one of my top 5 favorites. You don't need an over the top sci fi sequences with aliens all over or maybe space battle ship wars to have an epic sci fi but Children of Men is something. The story is moving, saving the last baby in the world and that is more than interesting for a story to as simple as possible. It has one of the most stunning visuals with those beautiful shots and camera angles that made this film so innovative. I was stunned for the whole 2 hours thinking this was made in the year 2007 and we should see more of this kind of films especially when Alfonso Cuarón together with the brilliant performance of Clive Owen. A must see, and especially a must have blu-ray copy. Amazing film!
The Artist (2011)
5 out of 5 - an epic tribute!
No wonder why this film is the Oscar pick. Not only it brings back the quiet act genre of films from the early 1900's, but its magical effect that this film has to offer. The quiet black and white picture with the tremendous background music just gives me the nostalgic chills of those early films from the 1930's. Just to watch the story, it is just amazing on how sad this artist could be with the brilliant performance of Jean Dujardin. He is like the modern Clark Gable with that suave look, that charming smile, and he is just so perfect for this film. Amazing cinematography, thinking it's time to celebrate the magic of The Artist. The best film of 2011.
