My thoughts: my favorite movie of all time, Spielberg's least favorite, adventure, comedy, romance, airplanes, firefighters, Audrey Hepburn's last role, "Well, I'll tell ya little lady.", stubborn, daredevil, bent spoon, "Hey, you made it!", soul mates, eating twinkies with a straw, Follow Me, guardian angel, The Platters, Van Morrison, great cast. The ending could have been better. 🍿9/10🍿

The Big Sick (2017)
This movie tells the story of Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail, who connects with grad student Emily after one of his standup sets. However, what they thought would be just a one-night-stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents.
When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, it forces Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, Beth and Terry who he's never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.
This movie may be described as a romantic comedy, but while I didn't laugh out loud as much as I expected, the romance side of this movie is incredibly sweet and heartwarming.
The lead cast deliver fantastic portrayals of their characters and are very lovely to watch. Kumail Nanjiani and Zoe Kazan have amazing on-screen chemistry and are very convincing as a couple. I also loved Holly Hunter in this movie! Not only did she portray her role extremely well, she is also highly entertaining! Brilliant!
Overall, a sweet adorable story that is definitely worth a watch.

The Piano is a 1993 New Zealand drama filmabout a mute piano player and her daughter, set during the mid-19th century in a rainy, muddy frontier backwater town on the west coast of New Zealand. It revolves around the musician's passion for playing the piano and her efforts to regain her piano after it is sold. The Piano was written and directed by Jane Campion and stars Holly Hunter, Harvey Keitel, Sam Neill, and Anna Paquin in her first acting role. The film's score by Michael Nyman became a best-selling soundtrack album, and Hunter played her own piano pieces for the film. She also served as sign language teacher for Paquin, earning three screen credits. The film is an international co-production by Australian producer Jan Chapman with the French company Ciby 2000.
INCREDIBLES 2 (2018)
While Elastigirl is out saving the world, Mr. Incredible must take care of the kids and control Jack-Jack’s undeveloped powers.
The first Incredibles is one of my favorite animated movies, so I had pretty high expectations going into its sequel. Thankfully I wasn’t disappointed. This is a blast just like its predecessor. The action is fun, the CGI is stunning and quite impressive at times, and the humor is hilarious. One of my favorite aspects is that Violet is given more to do. I thought she was underutilized in the first movie so I was happy to see her in her own solo fight scene. Jack-Jack remains interesting as hell, as he can’t control his powers; I was eager to see what he did next. The rest of the family (and Frozone and Edna) are pretty much themselves; nothing really changes about them, which is good. Mr. Incredible does have to show more of his fatherly figure side, though, so that was entertaining to watch. There’s even a little bit of social commentary at the end that definitely caused an uproar in my theater (most people cheered it on, others groaned).
My only issue with the movie is its main villain. Nowhere near as fun as Syndrome. In the first movie, Buddy had a message that actually left me thinking about it: if everyone is super, no one is. This one didn’t really have that.
Incredibles 2 was worth the fourteen year wait. The action, CGI, characters, family dynamic, and humor were all very well executed. It definitely ranks amongst my other favorite animated movies and if we’re getting a third installment, I’m all in.
MY RATING: 9/10
TOM’S STAMP OF APPROVAL? ✔️

It’s down to just me and this little guy during the day, and I’m loving every minute of it. The days are slow, but the years fly by. With twin adult daughters and a 10 year-old, boy do I know it. This 2 year-old makes a great, little caboose🚂, and I Holly-Hunter-ugly-cry love him. Happy weekending!💫
COPYCAT/ Film Américain réalisé par Jon Amiel
Un Thriller de tueur en série avec Sigourney Weaver dans le rôle du Docteur Helen Hudson ! 😆 Je peux que aimé ce film, même si elle date de 1995, le suspense reste intense ! Je vous le conseil 👍🍿
Synopsis : << Le docteur Helen Hudson est une psychiatre réputée, auteur d'ouvrages à succès sur les tueurs en série. Les conférences qu'elle multiplie à travers les États-Unis attirent un public nombreux, où se glissent parfois d'étranges "admirateurs" psychopathes ou tueurs en puissance. Helens'attire ainsi la haine d'un certain Daryll Lee Cullum, qui l'agresse sauvagement et manque l'étrangler... >> #Copycat #Film #Américain #1995 #Thriller #Crime #SigourneyWeaver #HollyHunter #DermotMulroney #JonAmiel #Netflix
2018 Best Movies so far:
It’s hard, I think, to find something that these movies all have in common. Maybe, for most of them, it’s that the characters are fighting for what’s right and for what they believe in, whether that’s race equality, gender equality, social autonomy, or even just for the right to be alive. Present in a lot of these films are characters who represent everyday people, just trying to do what’s best for those around them and, most importantly, themselves. Maybe it’s giving up their record shop or protecting their family, or maybe it’s just getting through the eighth grade. Literally and figuratively, these are all stories of survival. I’ve found these nine films to be the best and most enjoyable of the year thus far. Granted, I still have lots more to see.
Honorable Mentions: Thoroughbreds, Tully, A Quiet Place, Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot, Christopher Robin, Won’t You Be My Neighbor, You Were Never Really Here
