The memorable story of young, troubled Antoine is worth seeing for a good number of reasons, probably most of all for the thoughtful direction by François Truffaut. It stands out from most other movies about troubled youth, both in the way that it portrays the main character and in making such good use of seemingly minor events in showing how they shape Antoine's life.
As Antoine, Jean-Pierre Léaud (in the role with which he would always be identified) strikes a nice balance in making his character come to life without making any of his actions seem forced or over-dramatic. Truffaut sets things up for him perfectly, by presenting a great variety of situations in his life that allow Antoine's character to come out naturally. Many of the settings are in themselves interesting and creative, despite being located in familiar types of places.
The story is written carefully so as to allow the viewer to identify with and sympathize with Antoine, while still seeing his faults clearly. What is often the most affecting thing about it is the way that Truffaut shows how even the most commonplace kinds of events can have such an effect on a maturing person, if they are a source of disappointed expectations or misunderstood intentions. To make this kind of movie so effectively without relying on violent or shocking material is an admirable achievement, and it repays careful thought and attention while watching it. 🇫🇷

The medical condition experienced by Leonard in this film is a real condition called anterograde amnesia, the inability to form new memories after damage to the hippocampus. During the 1950s, doctors treated some forms of epilepsy by removing parts of the temporal lobe, resulting in the same memory problems.

🎥 #MovieReview: I finally got around to watching season three of #StrangerThings! Only took me three months.
Format: #Streaming 🌐
Synopsis: When the town’s threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they’ll have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear.
So much better than season two! Returning characters from season two like Billy and Max settle in well, as I wasn't a fan of them in season two. The original cast is on point too. David Harbour has always been a favourite of mine, and Hopper is great this season. Millie's Eleven is a standout. No stupid moments like last season's episode 7. Matarazzo impresses also. I was really pleased to see #CaryElwes too, as I've been a fan since The Princess Bride days.
The overarching story is great, and successfully brings back most of the feel of the first season - something I felt was lost a touch in the previous one. Although the team splits up again, I felt that the separate storylines held their own and made the coalescing of them at the end of the season a high point.
There were references galore this year. Some of the Terminator ones were really on the nose, but it was great to see so many nods to an awesome pop culture decade.
I'm keen to see where this goes!

Being their flagship show, the encode is flawless for a streaming service. Banding is near non-existent, colours are vibrant, levels are spot on and detail is high.
The quality carries over to the audio. Dialogue, sound effects, score and the soundtrack all sit perfectly in the mix. It's a lot of fun too, with plenty of audible callbacks to the 80's and even 90's.

The Avenging Conscience (1914)
The first great American horror film
It's an interesting coincidence after watching The Psychic (1977) directed by Lucio Fulci, that this movie, one of the first ever full feature horror films,also contains a scene where a body is concealed in a wall, brick by brick. I saw an interview where Fulci talks about how Americans and the world copied the Italian school of horror. This could be a case of Italians copying Americans, in this case it is Edgar Allan Poe. The film is based on the short story "The Tell-Tale Heart" and the poem "Annabel Lee".

Zombieland 2! It was perfect! I love the first one and always wanted a sequel. So I was looking forward to this for a while. It did not disappoint. It was almost an identical copy of the first. And that’s not bad actually. It Mixed new characters, few new jokes and different ways to kill zombies. Yet overall pretty much same movie as the first 😂
It worked perfectly tho and I actually enjoyed it! I actually didn’t mind the new characters either. Didnt have any slow moments, action was good, comedy was there it’s a perfect zombie comedy. Oh and the best part of the movie is the after credit scene 🔥 that’s not saying the movies bad either. It just might be the best after credit scene ever made. Seriously. Anyone else see it? Let me know what you thought! 🤔🤔

Happy Death Day 2U: 📺 2019 PG-13 (1hr 40 min) #Mystery#Slasher#Sequel 🧁 1.5/5 #TrueReviewz This was an interesting movie; the first one was pretty corny, and it seemed like they owned it and ran with it for the sequel. More comedic moments than scary ones. An odd blend of Sorority Row and Project Almanac- yet both of those were better than this. An entertaining flick that drags on but it’s advertised as a day on repeat so we must expect that to an extent. Worth a watch, just don’t expect to be “Wow’d” #MovieReview#MovieBuff#HBO
