Kick-Ass by Matthew Vaughn

Top of the month April 2010: Kick-Ass

You didn’t see that coming, did you?

Why should you go see Kick-Ass by Matthew Vaughn, right now?

– Because Nicolas ‘Big Daddy’ Cage can be in a good movie at last and gives one of his best performance in a long time.
– Because of the revelation of Chloë ‘Hit Girl’ Moretz having great screen presence and stealing the show.
– Because heroes don’t have to fly, to see through walls or to be radioactive to be super. With no power comes no responsibility!

Runners up :The Countess by Julie Delpy and Green Zone by Paul Greengrass.
(not to mention Gardiens de l’ordre by Nicolas Boukhrief)

Agora by Alejandro Amenábar

Top of the month January 2010: Agora

Violent memories of ancient times.

Why should you go see Agora by Alejandro Amenábar, right now?

– Because of the performance of Rachel Weisz, playing the part of philosopher and scientist Hypatia of Alexandria.
– Because if two things are equal to a third thing then they are all equal to each other (good old Euclid’s first rule).
– Because it’s a great reminder that in the fourth century, the bearded men were not Taliban but Christian.

Runners up :Invictus by Clint Eastwood and Gainsbourg – (vie héroïque) by Joann Sfar.
(not to mention Mr Nobody by Jaco van Dormael, Up in the Air by Jason ‘thanks for smoking’ Reitman and The Book of Eli by the Hughes brothers)
