March of the Penguins
Brilliant use of image, music, sound and voices results in an amazing narration of an astounding voyage that happens once a year. To fall in love with nature.
A History of Violence 2005,  R)
A History of Violence
David Cronenberg started his crescendo of "movies which are not about horror, but that will disturb you" with East Promises, continued with a History of Violence, and has reached a particular peak with A dangerous method (though, which future surprises reserves to us?). The movie starts in an apparently simple way, that becomes twisted as the story moves. I expected it even more disturbing and more shocking, but there are some moments in which you see a too much predictable plot and behaviors which donÂīt finely fit with the characters, and also instants in which you have a great doubt in what is going to happen and the deep inside of the protagonists is reflected. So, although not a master work, this movie offers an interesting and fresh point of view of how a storyline can advance. And, in the sense that it makes Cronenberg continue with attractive and original movies, welcome then.
The Weather Man 2005,  R)
Paradise Now 2005,  PG-13)
Monsters, Inc. 2001,  G)
Monsters, Inc.
Between 2.5 and 3. Funny, but I am a little tired of the combination of heroe/comical antiheroe that is so repeated in the last times in animated cartoons (I find it funny, but itīs not good to abuse from that formula). The character of Boo is the best of the movie.
