The Help - La couleur des sentiments
A striking extract.
60s, the segregation in the United States. A journalist writes the stories of black servants, tongues loosen. One, after being kicked out, takes revenge, she returned with a pie. The racist wife loves, eats more shares, asked the ingredients… She seriously replies, "my shit" and runs. Present at that time, the grandmother who loved her old maid, bursts out laughing, proud.
Few maids had the rabies to fight, so, this book, their stories, their words, their memories, their lives were their voices.

Gladiator

Post by Merceron Nicole on Fri Jan 08, 2016 10:06 pm

Maximus is a powerful Roman general, loved by the people and the aging Emperor. Before his death, the Emperor chooses Maximus to be his heir over his own son, and a power struggle leaves Maximus and his family condemned to death. The powerful general is unable to save his family, and his loss of will allows him to get captured and put into the Gladiator games until he dies. The only desire that fuels him now is the chance to rise to the top so that he will be able to look into the eyes of the man who will feel his revenge.
“Gladiator” is the best of films because it does vividly and convincingly portray some important general truths. Many people find the movie offensively violent, bloody, and gory. Unfortunately, life in the ancient world in general was much more violent and gruesomely bloody than life in modern industrial democracies.

Django Unchained

Post by tony.pacca on Sun Jan 10, 2016 3:23 pm

I chose this film because to my mind , Django is the best film all the time. Tarantino is the director of this western film. The film takes place in texas.
What I love in this film is the evolution of the main character, Django . Django is a slave who will cross the road of Dr. Schultz. Both they Journey Texas as a profession with bounty hunter. They kill many robber on their way .
This is a action western film with a touch of humor.


A film add to your collection if you haven't see.

Tu tu lu tu ! Tu tu lu ! ... lol! Star Wars has the both music which are most frequently in my mind ! I watched every Star Wars during the holidays. Now in my head music of Star Wars I have alien . The first music is when the film begin. The second is when there are dark people like Darf Vador.
I didn't realy like Star Wars but when you see one of the films you want to see all the others (it's what it did on me).

Babylon AD

Post by Alexandre Roux on Sun Jan 10, 2016 8:40 pm

My favorite movie is called babylon AD, because it is a good French science fiction film speaking about a world ravaged by the war and where Vin Diesel will have to take a girl in New York to deliver her to a very rich sect. But it is especially my favorite movie because Vin Diesel is my actor favorites.

Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain

Post by Chloé Demeersseman on Sun Jan 10, 2016 10:06 pm

I chose to talk about the film "Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain" because this a film that I saw as a child and that I rediscovered it recently.
When I watched this movie I really like going back to childhood, where everything is possible, where evil can be punished and good distributed.
I think that this film combines so well the reality, fiction, innocence and chance doubting that it becomes almost disturbing. Indeed, because of the verisimilitude of the people, places, some scenes, we could almost imagine in this "tableau". Nevertheless, this world remains childish and surreal. It is therefore shared between reality and dream.

I watched Hateful 8 last night. Tarantino's latest. Good film but a little slow for the first hour.

The Clint Eastwood movies.

Post by Blanc Dylan on Mon Jan 11, 2016 5:45 pm

i don't have really a favorite film. However, the actor and producer Clint Eastwood seems to be the one who makes the movies that i prefere. As Gran Torino or Million dollar baby for example. Also I love all the films of the Production marvel because I'm a big kid and we all dream of having superpowers.

Fight Club

Post by Ilona Pradier on Mon Jan 11, 2016 9:35 pm

Fight Club is a story of a man who finds monotone and boring his job and his life in general, so much that he becomes insomniac. One day he meets Tyler Durden, an anti conformist character. They decided together to create a fight club which allows members to evacuate their malaise through violence. Tyler will become his "life's mentor".

This movie is a slap. It makes us realize how much our society is materialistic and made me think a lot.

If you have not seen it yet, I'm not telling the end, but it's the best denouement ever Laughing
