Plot Summary: An arrogant man full of self-confidence and he definitely passed that quality on to his daughters. King Richard is the story of a father who dedicated his time to coaching his daughters to be the two best tennis players of all time. And that against all odds, as the film references the racial obstacles and challenges they faced inside and outside of their LA ghetto, Compton. It’s the story of a man and his five daughters who go on an adventure. A man who tries to help his daughters have a better future outside the ghetto. A man who tries to teach them humility and the values ​​of life and lead them to be the best in the world. Will Smith is very good in this beautiful film. His devotion to his daughters is likable but he’s also a very frustrating man who you don’t always particularly want to be around. He always knows best and interferes with the coaches. When he is convinced that they will succeed, he begins to fear that success will harm them and begins to encourage them to have fun. Many tennis players have pushy parents – Andy Murray for example (although his mother Judy denies this) and it is interesting to learn more about the history of the Williams sisters. We all know how the story ends, but many of us didn’t know how it begins, and that’s what this movie does.

Plot Summary: As Bradley Cooper utters his first line of dialogue as Stan Carlisle, several minutes into Guillermo del Toro’s lavishly set-up version”alley of nightmares“, we have already seen the character dragging a corpse and setting fire to a house. A fugitive, not yet from the law but from his own unresolved resentment, the man lands in a traveling 1930s spectacle populated by curious acts of benign mentalism and bizarre cautionary tales. Those tentatively-spoken first words are aimed at the geek of the operation, an alcoholic man dehumanized for vicious entertainment, on the loose from his captor inside an ominous attraction that warns visitors of damnation. What Stan can’t foresee from this point in his hasty rise to the top enchanter and thunderous fall arc is that he’s actually looking at a mirror. That we can deduce exactly where Stan’s road leads isn’t just because of Edmund Goulding’s 1947 film adaptation of the original novel.all the nightmaresy” is a film of psychological tunnels and downward spirals. By entering it, Stan risks getting lost and never coming out on the other side. If you’ve seen any of Guillermo de Toro’s movies, you’ll know exactly what to expect. alley of nightmares – if you haven’t, you’ll either love this movie or hate it. No middle term!

Chastain and Stan, who previously worked together on “The Martian“, are supposed to be best friends who are secretly in love with each other. Kruger, as the villainous German agent Marie, intercepts her instead, leading to one of many dizzying action sequences Mace brings in his reluctant former MI6 buddy, the brilliant hacker Khadijah, to track down his location, but Cruz, as Colombian psychologist Dr. Graciela Rivera, is also drawn into the fray; she’s been sent to the plot to find Ramirez’s character and bring him home. Eventually, it becomes clear that all of these women must put aside their differences and team up to find the secret device: “They get this, they’re starting World War III.” , Mace tells Khadijah in one of the film’s many instances of high tension But first, a fight between Mace and Marie involving frozen seafood, which apparently isn’t as fun as it sounds And the mome nt where they all stand, shouting and pointing guns at each other before reaching a hard trigger.

Spider-man: No Coming Home (2021)

Now airing daily at Ocimax…*12.05…16.00
*Saturday and Sunday only

Showing Tuesday at Holiday Park… 6:30 p.m.

Plot Summary: The best of “Spider-Man: No Coming Homereminded me why we all love comic books, especially ones about a boy named Peter Parker. There was a playful unpredictability to them that modern superhero movies often seemed to lack in the way they feel. Yes, sure, “No Way Home” is incredibly calculated, a way to make more headlines after killing off so many of its event characters in Phase 3, but it’s also a film that overflows often of creative glee.Director Jon Watts and his team delivered a veritable event film, a double-sized crossover issue of a comic book the younger me would have lined up to read first, enthusiastically turning every page with breathless anticipation of the next twist.

With : Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Holland

Director: Jon Watts

Duration: 2 hours and 30 minutes

Rated: seven

The Matrix Resurrections (2021)

Now posted daily at *August …. 7:40 p.m.
*Augusta is open from Wednesday to Sunday

Plot Summary: For quite a while, The Matrix Resurrections is fabulously pounding. It’s cheeky and devious, made up of endless layers of onions, it’s funny and weird and witty and crazy and even, at times, quite emotional. Granted, we’ve never seen anything like it, not on this scale, not in a Hollywood blockbuster, not like this. The action scenes are fine – sometimes inspired, sometimes familiar; if you’re hoping for Resurrections to change the genre game again, you might want to temper your expectations. Some of the overtly CG stuff looks like video game cutscenes. And, alas, some of the pomposity of those earlier soft sequels is also resurrected. Which is a shame, when it’s loaded with so much delicious fun – It’s also romantic and sentimental and sometimes touching. As they say these days, there’s joy here, and some mind-blowing ideas (one of which is remarkably morbid). So overall “Resurrection” is the best of the “sequels” and well worth a visit.

With : Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II

Director: Lana Wachowski

Duration: 2 hours and 28 minutes

Rated: 16

West Side Story (2021)

Now airing daily at Rivoli…4:30 p.m.

Plot Summary: The long-awaited remake from director Steven Spielberg West Side Story is quite bright. Most remakes usually don’t live up to the original – but it’s a revelation. Like its old 1961 self, it’s set in an abandoned part of New York with the teenage gangs – the Jets and the Sharks going head-to-head. That being said, West Side Story was, and always has been, a love story – period. Spielberg captures the exuberance of the original and adds a bit of local reality to the storyline. In fact, this film version of Romeo and Juliet mirrors the pen of William Shakespeare in his romantic drive that often has audience members fiddling with handkerchiefs at times as the “star-crossed” lovers embark on their doomed relationship. While the music is great, the dancing is bold and colorful with high color intensity and swooping cameras making the most of sensational choreography. It might be wrong to pick one performance out of so many – but Rachel Zeglar as the lovelorn Maria has a great voice to go along with her Latin beauty. Enjoy!

With : Ansel Elgort, Rachel Zegler and Ariana DeBose

Director: Steven Spielberg

Duration: 2 hours and 36 minutes

Rated: 12
