I, Daniel Blake
Interesting to see that the stupid burocracies of the government doesn't exist only in your country (Brazil, in my case). It's so frustrating to follow these characters, everything should be simple, accessible, easy... but the country just turns the back for them. It even has some kind of "involuntary humour" when we can idetify ourselves with the protagonist situations(and I'm still 28!).

Troy
It was starting on TV and I decided to watch, since I had nothing left to do. The battles and the number of extras in the war sequences were impressive, but the plot, acting and directing were weak, even for a blockbuster. It's really hard for me to swallow Hollywood actors portraying other ethnics.

Logan
Hugh Jackman finally got the Wolverine movie that he deserved, and with a spetacular goodbye for all the fans. The action sequences are breathtaking and brutal, finally we can see how violent is being Wolverine. The old Xavier is hearthbreaking, but Sir Patrick can stil pull some laughs and melt our hearts. X-23 is simply amazing, it's been a long time since the last time I saw a good child sidekick. I cried in the final frame, btw.

Akira
Another rewatched movie. The last time I saw it, probably was about ten years ago. Obviously being so long ago (and being so young!) I had no idea how amazing was the animation and, specially, the OST. Also, the movie has a lot of religous, politcs and social comentaries that only makes the movie richer. Unfortunaly, the movie only covers the first 2 volumes of the manga (I think), and lot of things are left without answers, and with a open-ending. But still, a classic of the animation.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
I am not the biggest fan of western movies, but John Ford nailed this story with these two amazing actors.

Manchester by the Sea
A tough and heavy movie to watch. Casey Affleck seems to carry all the pain and grieving of the world on his back, but without permiting himself to let it all out. Great performance, great story.

Moonlight
A sensible story about a good hearted boy being constantly punched down by his life. Barry Jenkins direction is great, and it has many visually beautiful scenes, and an interesting use of colors. But the movie lost me somewhere in the third act, and the absence of Mahershala Ali after the first part was also a little letdown for me.

Your Name
Makoto Shinkai is well known for his stunning animations, and heartbreaking stories where distance always keeps lovers apart. "Your name" has this elements, but this movies feels lighter than his previous works, with a lot of Slice of Life situations, and comic moments (the "grabbing boobs" gag always got me). The plot is a bit misleading, with some curious twists in the middle that made me like it more in some aspects and less in others. The bittersweet tone in the end is also present here, but a lot more optimistic than before.

The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada
An introspective movie about miserable people, in a miserable place, living a miserable life, with unreachable dreams but with a chance of redemption and turning over the table. Kinda. Unfortunately, the beggining of the movie is a little hard to follow, because of the non-clear time line of events, that we only fully understand by the end of the first half hour of the movie.

Predestination
Ethan Hawke is always a charismatic actor, and Sarah Snook (whom reminds me of a younger Tilda Swinton) is really amazing in her acting. But the movie is too predictable,specially if you've seen a bunch of time travel stories, and the ending felt unsatisfcatory. A passable movie in the end.

Zodiac
Revisited the movie after so many years. There were many bits of the movie that I didn't remember, like how it can be disturbing in certain parts, and how it has some funny gags(!). Fincher is great in showing the spiral that the protagonists get sucked in for not solving the murders, and the frustrations of having to build a solid case before arresting someone, even if all the clues lead to the suspect. But the movie may get a little bit confusing, specially by the end when Graysmith starts his own investigation. But Memories of a Murder still is a better movie, and I can bet that David Fincher watched it many times before filming Zodiac.

Angel
A wonderfully animated tale by Yoshitaka Amano (famous for his promotional arts of the Final Fantasy franchise)and Mamoru Oshii (director of Ghost in the Shell), but that drags too much... an one hour animation that feels like two. The movie has few conversations and full of symbolisms that unfortunaly I could not connect with.

The Past
Sometimes half-truths, secrets or unrevealed facts can become worse than lies... that's what Farhadi's filmography keeps teaching me. Strong acting and directing, a movie that shows how relationships can become complicated due to our past, fears, and uncertain future.

Sherlock, Jr.
Buster Keaton was MAD. How could he do all those incredible stunts? And there are some tricks that just blew my mind and kept me wondering how they managed to do it. And the flick is also very funny, a naive humour that we can only find in Keaton's and Chaplin's movies.

Sausage Party
There are some good intentions here, like weighting religion and respect among different beliefes. But the movie is most about swearing (not in a funny way, like South Park incredebly does), poor animation, and food talking. I mean, the trailer may give the audience the wrong impression about it, since the more visual violent and sexual stuff are a minimal part of the flick. But I got admit, I loved the Orgy scene.

State of Grace
This is a fine mobster film, especially with such outstanding cast (highlights for Gary Oldman). But I couldn't find in the end what the movie was really about. We hadn't Noolan's police side well explained, so we really don't get a whole scope of his motivation. And Ed Harris' character is so.... stupid, making just terrible decisions that really annoyed in the end.

La La Land
Wow, just wow. A passionating movie, full of colors and dreams; Emma Stone is superb as Mia, and Gosling overflows charisma. Damien Chazelle can already figure between the great promises of Hollywood. Many people didn't like the ending, but that was what sold the movie for me. If it has any downsides (not being a 10/10), it's because the movie dosen't have memorable songs, and the big dance scenes are all in the first hour of the movie.
