DD TV The Viewer – July 2019

Aside the only official Oscar’s ceremony held in LA every year, this is the place where we post our feedback on some of the amazing movies we have watched in these past few months.

We use the following “rough” method for the rating.

*** (3 stars) good movie, but not excellent

**** (4 stars) great

***** (5 stars) don’t miss it, highly recommended

We are aware of the series and provided by the streaming services and we are aware that they are in competition with the ones given on TV. It has been a growing phenomenon, so we are giving our “impression” starting from now.

PARCHIS The story of a Spanish pop band of the 1980s, whose popularity reached its peak in Spain and in South America: we love it because it is a music documentary

Final rating: **** 4/5 stars

THOR – RAGNAROCK: A new chapter off the Marvel saga, dedicated to “Tbor”, to his brother ”Loki” and with other heroes as Hulk.

My rating: ***** 5/5 stars

Movies

THE LEGO MOVIE – BATMAN Anime of C. McKay (2017)

This was the first spin-off of the original “Lego the movie” and it is rated one of the best anime about the Batman saga. It was aired on the Italian TV in late February 2019.

In this funny story the new character is “Batgirl”, one of the Policewomen of Gotham City and the enemy our hero has to fight is Joker

Funniest thing is also the tribute to the original 1989 soundtrack, all characters toys go and dance on a choreography dedicated to the late and great Prince.

I enjoyed it. It was absolutely hilarious and funny. Just for an evening of light entertainment. And Batman like this to me appeared more “human”.

My rating is **** (4 out of 5) stars

THE WINDTAKERS with Nicholas Cage – USA 2012

The movie is inspired by the real fact that during the WW II the Native of Navajo tribe were recruited with the Marines and sent to fight in the Far East, Korea, Japan. When it was the case their original language was used as a sort of “secret code” within the soldiers and this way many Marines managed to get saved and to conquer more pieces of land.

In the movie you can see more “romance” and how “bullism” grew in the presence of the Native Americans when noted by the fellow US soldiers. Being included was tough for these people.

To some extent this movie is about “inclusion and diversity”: how “diversity” can be used as a resource, not as a negative thing. Just like when in the early 1900s in towns like New York, the locals recruited the Natives to build the skyscrapers and the big bridges on the Hudson river  because the Natives do not suffer with vertigo.

Being a “war movie” I saw blood and violence anywhere; some swore words were spoken but given the tension the obscene language is justified.

Peace.

Next update in October 2019
