Halloween(2018) Honest sequel which just doesn't compare with the original because the formula doesn't work anymore, I guess.  They didn't make a great effort to find something original, they even resurrected the staple figure of the deranged doctor who sympathizes with the monster. But it's well directed and I like JLC anyway, though the long hair to make her look the granny she plays doesn't rhyme with her face (in facts she's short-haired in the interviews in the dvd). 7/10

Alice in Wonderland (20109 Thought it was AIW. It isn't. A horror movie for children, rather. But did they like it? No idea. 4/10

The Gay Divorcee (1934) Not among the best Astaire-Rogers. 2 good songs (Night and Day and Needle) but the Oscar went to The Continental. This last mega production never ends and one can but appreciate it when the couple dance to it in the last couple of minutes. The comedic trio do their routine but I don't find them as funny as in other flicks of the couple. I presume that Pan's absence made itself felt. 6-7/10

Spider-Man 3 (2007) For a good 2/3 this is the best of the trilogy: great action scenes (the crane one is one of the best ever in any superheroes flicks) and good humor in those about the personal vicissitudes of Parker. Unfortunately the end is marred, as usual, by too much sentimentality  so it's 7-8/10.

The Incredible Hulk (2008) I confirm the impression I had when I first saw it, it is one of the best superhero movies: much action, 3 GOOD actors and little room for stupid dialogues and romancing. The face of Hulk though, it doesn't look natural, they should have worked on it more. 8/10

Iron Man (2008) The only superhero movie I saw in a theatre and one of the best thanks mainly to the actors. I could have done without the weapons sermons but they are kept within reasonable  limits. 8/10

X-Men (2000) Surely one of the best superheroes trilogy thanks also to the variety of characters. McKellen is great and the plot is always on the move. 8/10

Top Hat (1035) nth viewing but first time not dubbed. I'd give it 10/10 were it not for the last number. The Piccolino is so insipid and stupid that almost mars the impression of the preceding, memorable numbers. And unfortunately even here, as in other similar numbers in Astaire-Rogers flicks, the mass choreography cannot rescue it: Busby Berkeley unfortunately couldn't be hired at RKO. 9/10

Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) I'd given it a 8/10 were it not for the usual night fight where you (or at least I) can't tell what is happening. The scene of the Washington Monument is impressive and I liked the new actor who really look the 15 year old Parker. Also, the interracial theme and quips give life to the story.

Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019) Namely in Venice, Prague, Berlin and London. The Prague episode  is the lamest: probably because is set at night and there's too much talking. The one in Venice is impressive and would have earned without the former one, an 8/10. (But was whoever picked up Caterina Valente's Bongo cha cha cha (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4f5DxCIcVYI) that the lyrics are about Brazil and not about Italy? Or did he count on people hearing the title as "Gon-do-la" instead of "Bongo-la"?

Highlander (1986) Better of what I thought, but it looks weird after years of CGE's. Here is more animation but some scenes ("playing chicken", for example) are effective. And though it is full of logical holes (f.e.:how do immortals like Connery get old? Why the russian doesn't cut Lambert's head on their first clash? ) it is tolerable for a single watch. And though Queen is not among my favourite groups, here their score works fine. 6-7/10

Entrapment (1999) I had skipped until now this Connery and I was wrong because it is a nice thriller with at least a good scene (the escape from the building in Kuala Lumpur). The girl is much more tolerable of what I thought and Connery, old like he was (well, not much older than me), is still my favourite face on the screen. 7/10

Avengers: Endgame (2019) I missed the previous episodes (how many they are) and the first hour of the movie does nothing to clarify things but it is just the usual blabbering. So you have two more hours for the action. Which is good, but what I don't like are the colours. Which is what I liked in the comic books when I read them: Those blue and reds were the bait and there was little left to characters and it was more the action. 7/10

X-Men: First Class (2011) Essential viewing for the fans of the franchise but, of course, they had it complicated to give it depth. So the first part is the usual historical premise, followed by a useless middle with the usual 
personal problems of the mutant underdog and at last the real thing with the final confronation goofily inserted in the russian-american Cuba crisis of 1962. Good the scene of the submarine taken out of the sea. 7/10
