The First Lady

The First Lady, a series presented on Crave, immerses us in the lives of three American First Ladies, Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford and Michelle Obama. Three different eras, three women who lived in the White House and who shaped history in their own way. The First Lady is also excited to be reunited with three very talented actresses, namely Gillian Anderson, Michelle Pfeiffer and Viola Davis.

no time to die

In truth, No Time to Die is an episode steeped in nostalgia, a feeling viewers will no doubt feel as they witness the swan song of an actor who, counting most films, is still the one who has played James Bond the longest borrowed his trains . And who, thanks to his acting talent, gave the character a new depth. It’s also clear that, much like Daniel Craig’s entry into Casino Royale, the craftsmen now need to reboot the series on a whole new basis. We wish them the best of luck because the bar will be very high.

difficult movie? Yes. Watch the film more than once to capture its full essence? Without doubt. Philippe Grégoire told us in an interview. He likes to make people think. There aren’t all answers. That said, we won’t sulk our pleasure. This film has beautiful ideas and is carried by two young actors in great shape.

respect

Respect is one of those films where the value of spectacle is directly linked to the performance of the actress or actor playing the lead. At this level, Jennifer Hudson is at the pinnacle of a role that few singers and actresses could have mastered with such mastery. Without going to imitation, the American Idol season 3 contestant (she was seventh in the rankings at the time!) manages to vocally—and internally—translate the transformation of a singer who transitions from gospel to jazz without ever leaving the audience actually meeting, however, took a while to find his voice in the soul.

Mixmania, 20 years later

Mixmania: 20 Years Later puts the spotlight on the 2002 cohort, the original mixes. It’s very good, if a bit short at around forty minutes. There was a movie theme here of at least an hour and a half, easy. In an old monastery setting, Annabelle, Julie, Ariane, Frank, Emmanuel and Pierre-Luc confide in Bianca Gervais – who also directs the documentary – to point out the pros and cons of being fed by the shrill screams of children at such a young age Bell Center and FrancoFolies.

blue bayou

Sorry, your browser doesn’t support videos

Blue Bayou moves forward with one purpose: to denounce injustice. It lacks formal finesse, but in terms of content we can only succumb to the strength of its story and stick to its purpose. How can you not find it inhumane that people are threatened with being sent back to a country they do not know after having spent their lives in the country they have always considered their own?

drunk birds

The film is based on the great musical score by Philippe Brault. In addition, Ivan Grbovic draws performances of great finesse from his quartet of actors. Of particular note are the compositions by Hélène Florent, whose reduced play harmonises perfectly with the search for a woman unable to flourish, and by Claude Legault, in the skin of a man a little overwhelmed by everything that happens in his family life is. And around.

Tony Hawk: Until the wheels fall off

Tony Hawk: Until the Wheels Fall Off may not have the depth of those documentaries that can reach beyond convert circles. However, it offers a very interesting perspective and gripping scenes that will grab any teenager or adult who one day jumped on a skateboard and dreams of arriving at the sole of one of the Bones Brigade idols.

Irma Vep

Irma Vep was captured in the City of Lights with a host of French actors. The dialogues skilfully alternate between the languages ​​of Shakespeare and Molière. The most amazing thing is the shape. The implementation, both modern and retro, is great.

A word for you: hoes! It’s good, funny and smart. It’s comedy of the year. Equally hilarious are the characters that revolve around the two heroines. There’s the cheeky assistant Kayla, the psycho-starved tour manager, and the aloof personal assistant, who get plenty of laughs.
