Maléfique : le pouvoir du mal
Note : ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Maléfique est certainement le meilleur film Live Action de Disney cette année. Une histoire originale et qui se diffère complètement de tout ce que nous propose l’empire depuis des mois. Une redécouverte de l’univers avec des idées originales, comme la recherche des origines de Maléfique.
Les images sont magnifiques et sur ce point, je n’ai rien à dire. Le combat final, remplie de toutes ces couleurs apportent cette touche féérique qui plaît aux enfants. Certains choix scénaristiques laissent cependant à désirer quand on dénombre les facilités et les incohérences que le scénario peut porter.
Peut-être que Disney aurait pu pousser un peu plus le bouchon dans l’écriture pour apporter un peu plus de consistance au film pour provoquer de l’émotion ou des sensations. Quoi qu’il en soit, ça reste le film DISNEY le plus original cette année.
Et vous, vous en avez pensé quoi ?

My 20 favorite films of the 2010s:
18. The Social Network (2010) dir. David Fincher
No film has aged better than The Social Network, maybe ever. The dark and disturbing hubris of Mark Zuckerberg and the damaging effects Facebook could have on a society was laid bare. Ironically, this film is highly inaccurate to the true story. Yet, both Zuckerberg and Facebook have grown into the money consuming, privacy invading, narcissistic monsters Fincher and writer Aaron Sorkin knew they would become. Eisenberg has never been better than this film. Surrounding him is an elite ensemble of Andrew Garfield, Armie Hammer, and Justin Timberlake (to name a few). Every element of the film feels as meticulously planned and calculated as Zuckerberg himself and stands as a perfect summation of the decade we just lived.
Like Someone in Love (2012) is a French-Japanese film written/directed by the late Iranian Abbas Kiarostami. It was his final film released in his lifetime.
Set over the course of just 2 days in Tokyo, Akiko, a student, moonlights as a sex worker and the first night she is assigned by her pimp (I think) to work with a much elderly man, Watanabe, who isn't interested in the sex. She wants to spend time with her sick grandmother who is visiting her so she refuses the job but is convinced to go for it anyways.
The whole film was filled with diegetic sound. Meaning, all the sound we hear, conversations & whatnot, all come from a source in the film's world. There is no score or soundtrack. Just natural sound. That had a huge effect to the film's realism.
Not only is there realistic sound, there is also realistic dialogue. Its slow paced and it should be. Most of the shots were long takes & the camera rarely moves. This can be boring to some but it is an artistic & stylistic decision that adds more to the naturalistic vibe of the story.
I've noticed that the cinematographer Katsumi Yanagishima & director Kiarostami used many reflections, panoramic shots & mirror/window perspectives. Its a distinctive style when it comes to drama films compared to the ones I know. I can assume most of Kiarostami's films utilise similar sound & camera techniques. His framing technique is amazing.
While all that is beautiful, the story piqued my interest as I've always wanted to see a film about sex workers & how it affects their personal lives. While the film does deal with this, the 2nd half of the story focuses on Watanabe's perspective which was uninteresting. I still don't know what his intention was and why. Could've been a lot better to just focus on Akiko's story. I really didn't care about Watanabe.
There's a side character who is Akiko's boyfriend who has no idea about her work but has his suspicions. That's how we see their relationship get affected by this but most of this happens off-screen. Which reminds me, some of the off-screen dialogue did not show up in subtitles. That was annoying.
Going back to where I belong, bye.

The Little Mermaid has found its Prince Eric. After an extensive search, Jonah Hauer-King has landed the male lead in the live-action adaptation of the Disney classic.
Hauer-King has been in the running for the role since September and tested along with Krypton actor Cameron Cuffe at London’s Pinewood Studios. At the end of the day, Hauer-King won the role in the Rob Marshall-directed film and this comes on the heels of Harry Styles backing away from talks for the part of Ariel’s love interest back in July.
The Little Mermaid cast includes Halle Bailey as Ariel, Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, Awkwafina as Scuttle and Jacob Tremblay as Flounder. Javier Bardem is still in talks to play King Triton but the deal hasn’t officially been closed as of yet. The film will feature beloved songs from the animated classic by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as new songs by Menken (music) and Lin-Manuel Miranda (lyrics). Jonah Hauer-King has credits that include The Song of Names which made its TIFF world premiere back in September, A Dog’s Way Home, Danny Huston’s The Last Photograph and the 2017 PBC miniseries Little Women.
